The workers Were demanding also that hundreds of their comrades arrested in the anti-Communist rebellion ol June 17 be released from Jail. The workers staged the sitdown strikes in Soviet-operated plants and the "people's owned" mills and factories. Radio Berlin said the elevated and subway trains would run on normal schedules tomorrow and all persons would be permitted to cross the border in either direction without special passes. This removed the last restriction placed on the east sector of the divided city by the Red army under martial law imposed after the June 17 rioting.

Peaceful So Far This time, however, the East Germans apparently tried the peaceful sitdown protest rather than risk further bloody clashes with Communist arms. Despite the new strike reports. East Berlin's police headquarters announced over Red Radio Bei'Un'E that free traffic between the city's East and West sectors would be permitted starting tomorrow. Since the June 17 revolt, traffic had been permitted only to persons with special passes. Persons crossing into West Berlin said angry workers in East Berlin had laid down their tools by the hundreds at the Bergman Borsis" works, the Stalin Allee housing project, the Hennigsdorf steel mills and the Rudersdorf pottery mill. Ask Release The strikers reportedly demanded that comrades arrested in the June 17 revolt be released from prison immediately. The U. S. High Commission's Berlin newspaper, Neue Zeitung, reported strikes and demonstrations ,in other Soviet zone cities. The protesters, it said, demanded the additional food and consumer goods promised by Communist Premier Otto Grotewohl's tottery puppet regime. The Berlin workers reportedly also insisted on resumption of elevated railroad and subway traffic with West Berlin—still halted at the frontier by Soviet martial law— and lower prices in the state-owned stores. East Berlin's new strike wave was touched off yesterday by construction workers on the big Stalin Allee housing project, the same group whose defiance ignited the revolt three weeks ago. They threatened a new march on the government despite the Russian tanks and guns that still enforce martial law in the city's Soviet- held portion. Police Alerted The workday started today, however, without any signs of a march. Though the tight Russian blockade barred Western observers, from the Western side of the frontier, activity in the East appeared "normal." During the night the Communist German police had been placed on a "No. 1,alert," and night patrols which normally operate in pairs were increased to four men. There were reports also that Soviet Army tanks, many of which had been withdrawn to the suburbs, had been rushed back into dowjown East Berlin. Ti" American radio station RIAS begged the East Germans to hold their tempers lest they be drowned in a blood bath. zen's Sewer Committe proposal for a "modified" sewer improvement program, to cost , then session, ended an adjourned deferring action on the sewer j proposal until the next reg- j ularly scheduled meeting next j week. .. Chairman Harvey Morris of the Citizen's Committee presented an alternative propo.sal to a previously approved sewer plan costing some S1,2G6,DOD, and told the council the committee feels "the people know something must be done, and we believe they will approve a plan if they know it has been cut to the lowest possible cost." Along with Wo?th D. Holder, Chamber of Commerce manager Mr. Morris explained through use of a map of the proposed sewer system that the "modified" program would not lower quality of the .system recommended for this city by Black and Veach, Kansas City engineering firm in a study made at the city's request several years ago. Instead, Mr. Morris said, the reductions would come as a result of omrnission of some areas from the new system. Areas ommitted at the time j of construction would largely be j those in which little housing is now located, and which could not "pay their way" in the .sewer system cost burden at this time. These areas would be "temporarily ommitted," rather than altogether left out, Mr. Holder said. Surplus returns Irom sewer sys- em revenue under the proposed financing method earlier recommended by a Chamber of Commerce committee and approved by the Citizen's Committee for inclusion in its proposal would soon provide funds for the additional construction, he told the group. Areas not sewered at the time the new system would be installed would not pay sewer charges until such time as they are provided with improvements on a par with the remainder of the city, Mr. Holder pointed out. The major reduction in cost from the original sewer plan to the "modified" program lies in the reduction in laterals to be installed, he said. Areas vote was 16 to 9. It was a smashing triumph for the administration, after weeks ol delay and often bit- ler maneuvering. The committee approved straight six months' extension, to next Jan. 1. killing all efforts to amend or soften the tax. Foes of the extension made a last ditch try to head off the administration by attempting to tack on a cut in personal income taxes to take effect Oct. i. Rep. Cooper <Tenn), senior Democrat on the committee, announced later that seven of the ten Democratic members supported the eix- months profits extension. That meant nine of the 15 Republicans stood by the Eisenhower program. Committee members said Rep. at the outset of the three-hour Richard M. Simpson (R-Pal moved closed session to take up the profits tax, which was not on the agenda. Back Simpson Chairman Reed (R-NY), fighting to the bitter end against the administration program, ruled Simpson's motion out of order. Simpson then appealed to the committee as a whole to upset Reed's ruling and the committee backed Simpson up, 15 to 10. The bill chosen for the showdown was a simple extender offered by Rep. Kean (R-NJ). Another meas- i ure in the committee's files would i have exempted firms making less than $100,000 a year Reds Ready To Talk Truce BUS DRITVER TRAPPED — Glenn D.

Friend of Stalin Names Red Clergy Details of Infiltration in Church Will Be Checked before Release NEW YORK.(AP) — The House Un-American activities Committee says witnesses, one an "intimate acquaintance" )f Stalin, have named several American clergymen as members of the Communist party. The witnesses were said to have Marqusee, 25-year-old Cornell Uni- •iven the group "information of extreme importance" about Communist infiltration of the clergy. Rep. Kit Clardy (R-Mich), act- ng chairman at two days of New York hearings, announced the tes- imony yesterday. He emphasized the committee was not probing ii- churches but wes trying the clergy ... or any other group." The probe is being pursued here today wit': Rep. Gordon H.

He said the information would be checked and—if verified —then made public in accord with a committee policy "to forestall all possibility of smearing and defaming- innocent American citizens." A prepared statement by the commiUee said it had received testimony on how Communists planned to and did infiltrate the .nks of clergy" in the United States. Witnesses giving the information were identified by Clardy as Benjamin Gitlow and Joseph Kornfeder, who was said to have been versity law student described as a former Communist, and Vladimir Petrov, identified as an anti- Red Russian once imprisoned in a Soviet concentration camp. Scherer said Marqusee testified that the Communist party had a definite pattern for the infiltration of clergy and other groups in all non-Communist countries. Clardy said Petrov shocked the committee with "an appalling story of how the Communists seek to exterminate' all religion . . . n sto:;' of murder and brutality al- beyond belief." 15 Men Leave For Induction Next Group Leaves July 23 for Examination $150 Fine On Beer Charge Marshall Harvey entered a plea of guilty in Municipal Court today to ' charges* of selling beer without a permit and was fined $150 and costs.

Other Action In other action, tJie council acted on zoning applications and voted to annex fr the north and west areas of the citty into the city limits, at the same time assuming control of streets and sewers in the western section annexed. An adjourned section, the meeting this week had been continued for the purpose of hearing two zoning permit applications, both of the areas involved. One application, for a garage at Walnut and Division streets, was machine shop on Hearn Street was rejected after reading of a petition by protestants. The council approved annexation of an area lying between Hardin and Lamar Streets, in the northeastern, Country Club Addition section of the city, and took similar action on land west of the current city limits between Main Street and the Frisco Railroad tracks, also voting to accept streets and sewers previously constructed in this area. Marcus Evard, attorney representing landowners in the affected areas, told the council a temporary order had been obtained from the County Court approving annexation of the areas. Along with a 40-fooL strip nlong lots in the northern section of the city, the council approved annexation of pnrttally improved land Sec SEWERS on Page 3 Stote Tax Take Up LITTLE ROCK (M — The Arkansas Revenue Department said yesterday that the state collected $51,453,927 In taxes from Jan. l through June 30.

Troops of the ROK 2nd Division had just about cleared off their position on Arrowhead Ridge by noon, but the U. S. 7th Division still was working on small knots of Chinese who have holed up in old bunkers on the western slope of Pork Chop Hill. ' Southwest of Porkchop, a. new action flared as the Communists .slammed neighboring Outposts Berlin and East Berlin just before midnight Tuesday. Heavy artillery fire punctuated the attacks. Rocked back after dawn, the Reds regrouped and surrounded East Berlin briefly, but Allied defenders sent the assault force reeling again by noon and secured their positions. B-26's Hit After a partial lifting, mist and drizzling rain closed, down over the front again in what appeared to be the final stages of the five-day storm that turned the battleiront into a quagmire. The haze slowed ground support missions by the Air Force, but during the night B26s got in their heaviest strike in nearly a week, attacking Red convoys, a switch- j yard and Red front positions. Off the east coast of Korea, skies cleared and the mighty U. S. battleship New Jersey slipped in near shore and lambasted enemy buildups north of Anchor Hills. Fighting 1 Savage Tn some of the most savage tight- Ing of the war, Americans and South Koreans slammed back the repeated attacks by Chinese Reds on Porkchop and Arrowhead. For 36 furious hours, the Reds committed more and more men into the battles fought at close range with gun butts, knives, lists, and. at times, even .stones. At their height, the Reds .stormed up the slopes nnd fingers of both Allied positions but never reached the crests. Communist lows, although not estimated yet, were staggering, reports indicated.

Archibald Roosevelt, son of the late President Theodore Roosevelt. Expose, Not Attack Clardy said Roosevelt's testimony woud be made public as soon as it is transcribed. Asked by a reporter for a Communist newspaper whether he would attack a clergyman found to be a Communist, CJardy answered: "I would not attack him. I would expose him." The committee said two other witnesses testifying at session yesterday were boards, three transferred to other boards and three failed to report.

Li set for today the case Caldwell Protests Purchasing University Head Laments Higher Costs LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Contending that printing and stationery costs under state contracts are excessive, the president of the Universitiy of Arkansas complained to the attorney general yesterday that the school paid $735 to print a bulletin that could have been printed for $450. Doctor John T. Caldwell cited the Ilgures in a letter to Attorney General Tom Gentry after he (Gentry) asked him to give examples of overcharges. Caldwell previously told Gentry that the costs were too high and he had hoped they would be more in line under a finance director. The president also expressed disappointment, in the original correspondence, ihat the attorney general had ruled illegal a section of the Fiscal Code proivding that the finance director should let contracts for printing and stationery. Caldwell gave these other examples of what he considers excessive charges: pencils of a specified brand and textures. SG.6Q a prross when th<? price from other sources was S4 .and a desk pen set, $3.28, under the state contract — against $1.83 from another No Indication Rhee Will Okay Plans By SAM SUMMERLINE SEOUL (AP) — The Communists said today they are ready to negotiate the final details of Korean armistice even though South Korea objects violently. A letter from the Red high command replying to Gen. Marie Clark's June 29 proposal to sign an armistice now was delivered by liaison officers in a five-minute meeiin at Panmunjom. It laid down what appeared to . be some totis.h conditions for Communist acceptance of a truce .negotiated in two years of hard bargaining. But observers said the Reds might Waive some ol these when the talks resume. There was no indication, however, that stubborn President Syngman Rhee of South Korea would accept a truce which fails to guarantee unification of his war- battered nation. In Washinton, a high government official said a truce "has got to happen." He indicated the administration would go to great lengths to obtain an armistice although no formula has been found hai source. Endless List He said ho. could "list endlessly" examples similar to the ones cited. The attorney general said the new fiscal code provides that the finance director let the printing contracts and this is a violation of the Constitution. He said that .since the finance director, who is appointed by, the governor, lets the contracts and the .governor proves them, it would have the snme effect as one person doing the snme job. to meet Rhee's objections. New Crisis He said the Bed move created a new crisis. The Reds said the U. N. command must: :(1) "take effective steps" to assure South Korean compliance with armistice terms; (2) recover 27,000 anti-Communist Vorth Korean war prisoners set :ree on orders of President Khee last month; and (3) "shoulder the absolute responsibility" for seeing that none of the 8,000 anti-Red prisoners 'remaining In Allied stockades escape. The Communist letter said, "Our side agrees that the delegations of joth sides meet at an appointed time to discuss the question ol ^implementation of the armistice agreement and the various preparations prior to the signing of the armistice agreement. "The date for the meeting will ; discussed and decided by the senior delegates of both sides hrough liaison officers." Informed sources said the next move probably would be an Allied request for a liaison session to fix the date for a meeting of the full truce delegations. There was no immediate comment from Gen. Clark's Tokyo headquarters. Ask Fight Thousands of South Koreans paraded throush the streets of Seoul crying for [he U. N. Command to ap- fight on until Korea is unified.

This indicated that drought and other unfavorable conditions in growing areas may keep the crop from becoming a surplus problem. While the reduction is not as much as the 18 per cent that had been requested by Secietary of Agriculture Benson, it could well produce a crop below the top goal of 12,500,000 bales set by the secretary. In appealing for a smaller crop, Benson told farmers before planting time, that if they produced more than 12,500,000 bales, he probably would be required under terms of farm law to Invoke rigid market- Ing quotas on the 1054 crop to.keep supplies from Betting larger. Yields May Drop The department said the 24,618,000 acres of cotton were under culUvntion .July 1, This would pi'o- du<;e a. crop of slightly more than 13 million bales if the acre yields reached the high average of the last 10 years. But the department's description of the unfavorable conditions, including the drouth in the Southwest, raised the possibility that acre yields might be sharply reduced this year resulting in a crop much less than the Benson maximum. The secretary has until Oct. 15 to make a decision on controls. By that time the crop will have reached the harvesting stage. I The acreage on July 1 compared i with 26,922.000 in cultivation a year ago and 22,029.000 for the 10-year (1042-51) July 1 average. The department made no forecast on cotton production. But should the acre yield be equal to a ten-year average, the crop .would be about 13,047,000 bales of 500 pound.'j gross weight. Last year's crop was 15,136,000 bales and the ten-year averoge production was 15.144,000. and declining export markets, Secretary of Agriculture Benson had asked farmers to plant 18 per cent less land to cotton this year than last. In other words, he had in mind a July 1 acreage of about 22,000,000 acres and a crop of 12,000,000 to 12,500,00 bales. The secretary said a crop in excess of this amount might well create a surplus that would require him to invoke acreage allotments and marketing quotas to restrict production in 1954. The first official estimate of the size of this year's crop will be issued Aug. 1. Supplementing this year's production will be a carryover from past crops of slightly more than 5,000,000 bales On July 1 Missouri had 515.000 acres In cultivation which Is 104 per cent of the July 1, 1052 acreage.
