TWO BtTTHETTLLl! (ARK.? COURIER MEW1 THURSDAY, MARCH IT, IMS Yalta Papers Fail To Still Debate On Concessions Documents Verify War Dealt Mad* With Russians (Continued from Page 1) understood to have hoped that publication of the record would bring the long dispute to an end. It appeared, however, that the record might simply furnish more ammunition for it. In addition, a question was raised as to whether the published record was complete In all details. The State Department itself said some omissions had been made for national security or elimination of repetitious material or to avoid "needless offense" to foreign nations or to individuals. Sen. Capehart (R-Ind) called Roosevelt's action in agreeing to Stalin's Par East demands "an almost unpardonable error." Sen. Humphrey (D-MInn) said publication was aimed "to satisfy the more vitriolic elements of the Republican party." The State Department gave no official explanation as to why Dulles changed his mind about letting the documents out at this time. However, the New York Times said the papers were "suddenly released" last night after "Republican senators had protested to the State Department that the New York Times had copies." Two Deletions Two deletions werr made at the request of Churchill, the only surviving member of the wartime Big Three. Adjacent paragraphs Indicated they concerned Churchill's ideas of France's postwar position. Even with these and possible other omissions, Churchill had declined to agree to the publication. There were no major disclosures. The chief results of the Yalta conference had long since been known. The Par Bast concessions permitted Russia to take over the Kurile Islands north of Japan, the southern half of Sakhalin Island and operation of the Chinese eastern and south Manchurlan railroads. The Russians also gained rights Jn the Chinese port of Dairen and the lease of Port Arthur as - naval base. Except for the Kuriles, these were rights or positions which Russia had held 50 years before, then lost In 1905 through war with Japan. In a meeting with Roosevelt at Yalta Feb. 8, 1945, Stalin said that if his conditions were not met "it would be difficult for him and Molotov to explain to ttie Soviet people why Russia was entering the war against Japan." A record of this exchange was kept by Roosevelt's Interpreter, Charles E. Bohlen, now American ambassador in Moscow. Bohlen recorded Stalin as saying the the Soviet people "understood clearly the war against Germany which had threatened the very existence of the Soviet Union, but they would not understand why Russia would enter a war against a country.with which they had no great trouble." "He said, however, if these political conditions were met," Bohlen's notes continued, "the people would understand the national' interest Involved and It would be very much easier to explain the decision to the Supreme Soviet. "The President replied that he had not had an opportunity to talk to Marshal Chiang Kai-shek and he felt that one of the difficulties in speaking to the Chinese was that anything said to them was known to the whole world in 24 hours." Would Give Up Hong Kong At another point Roosevelt said he would like to take care of the Russian interest in using the port of Dairen by making it an internationalized port. He related this to the question of Hong Kong. "The President said he hoped that the British would give back the sovereignty of Hong Kong to China," the Bohlen record showed, "and that it would then become an Internationalized free port. He sold he knew, Mr. Churchill would hive strong objections to this suggestion." Nothing ever came of Roosevelt's idea about internationalizing Hong Kon~. Nor for (hat mutter war Dair'rn internationalized, although the Bij Three a-reed that should be don?. The Russians simply took over at Dairen and Port Arthur when they were able. In the same conversation. Stalin Indicated to Roosevelt that he was considering moving 25 divisions of troops to the Far East when they could be freed from duty in Europe. Korea Trusteeship Roosevelt also told Stalin he had in mind for Korea a trusteeship by Russia, the United States and China until the Korean people learned, self-government, which he thought might take 20 to 30 years. Stalin and Roosevelt agreed that no foreign troops should be stationed in Korea. In addition to Bohlen's notes, records were kept by other staff members, Including Alger Hiss, a State Department aide later 'Imprisoned for perjury In denying he had given documents to a prewar Communist spy ring. It was in his note* that Rooaevelt was quoted as finding It "very embarrassing" to put the Soviet Ukraine and Soviet White Ruf»l« into the United Nations u Independent members. Him kept his notes in «bbrevl- tied form, having token them in longhand.

Administration (Continued from Page 1) the SovJets failed to hold the free elections they had pledged for what are now Iron Curtain satellites. Repudiation also might wash out the basis under which the Big Four now control Berlin. ^ There was little immediate comment on the 500,000-word Yalta record. A number of Congress members said they had not had time to study it. Sen. Capehart (R-Ind), however, said it showed the late President Roosevelt had made "an almost unpardonable error" In granting concessions to the Russians, but he added: "In all fairness, he was a sick man." Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn) said publication of the documents was "a very dangerous step ... to satisfy the more vitriolic elements of the Republican party." He named no names. As for the papers themselves, he said, they "will provide interesting reading but, I fear, will do nothing to settle our present-day problems." TAX (Continued from Page 1) passed by the House and Senate. The Senate bill provides only a one-year extension of the corporation and excise taxes. The House bill, in addition, would cut taxes 520 a year for each taxpayer and each dependent, starting next Jan. 1, House Minority Leader Martin Women Attend Scout Meeting OSCEOLA — rive Osceoln women attended a meeting of the Crowley Ridge Girls Scout Council lield at the St. Francis Valley Club House In Marked Tree yesterday.
