10 HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH. Monday. May 7. 1945 U.S., Britain Demand Russia Give Evidence Against Arrested Poles - By John M. Hightower San Francisco, May 7, (P) The United States and Britain were reported by United Nations Conference officials today to have demanded of Russia that she supply her evidence against the 16 arrested leaders of the Polish underground. ... ... ...... , - , , I it T - J against uie xveu The aim is to break the latest Bie - 3 deadlock of Poland. It is part of a strategy sidetracking the Polish row from the main line of the conference in order that the Big - 3 may try for maximum unity in designing a world organization for future peace. The goal is to shift the dispute to Washington, London and Moscow getting from the Russians a full explanation of the arrests. President Truman and Prime Minister Churchill are reported to have intervened directly with Marshal Stalin. ' To Leave Conference Russian Foreign Commissar Molotov is now slated to quit San Farncisco for Moscow around midweek. So long as he is here, speculation continues that Russia may give the conference a sensation by making known her future plans toward Japan. The collapse of German armies has stimulated this speculation. For any such momentous move, either Stalin or Molotov in his present situation here, might serve as an announcer On the main line of conference developments, word spread today that Stalin may have replied favorably to Molotov's request for instructions on the review and re gional arrangements amendments to the Dumbarton Oaks Charter, which were left over from last Friday night's meeting of the Big - 4. If this information proves correct, then a scheduled meeting of foreign ministers today could produce complete harmony on the changes which the Big - 4 want in the Dumbarton Oaks plan. . This would not solve all the problems before the conference by any means. Perhaps the greatest developing issue is the demand of the Latin - American countries that the Pan - American security system be allowed to be independ ent of the proposed World Security Council in using force to block aggression. Nations Upset The Latin - American nations also are reported upset by a big - power amendment which says that in selecting the six non - per manent members of the Security Council, the World Assembly may take into account their ability as warrior nations and also their lO' cations in the world. Britain backed this amendment and some of the Latin delegations contend it was designed to give such commonwealth countries as Canada and Australia an advan tage in getting council seats. However, it would also work to the advantage of the larger and more powerful Latin - American states and against the smaller nations. The Big - 5 countries Russia, the United States and Britain, to gether with China and France continued in a tangle over what to do about a plan for inter national trusteeships with another meeting of their delegates sched uled today. The American delega tion is committed to a system which would allow this country to develop and control military bases on islands captured from Japan. Britain is represented as want' ing full say over whether her old World War I mandates, such as Palestine, should be put under a trusteeship council. But the United States contends that all left - over mandates should go automatically under the new system. Developments as the conference enters its second full week after a largely work - free Sunday thus mdicacate that not all the disputes will be between Russia and her western allies. The latest blowup was touched off publicly at a news conference held by Secretary Stettinius Saturday for the purpose of announcing big - three agreement on about 20 changes in the Dumbarton Oaks plan. His statement said Molotov had informed Stettinius and Eden that the Polish leaders had been arrested on a charge of "diversion - ist activities Army." Stettimus termed these men "prominent Polish democratic lead ers" and said Eden and he naa asked Molotov for a complete list of those arrested and a "full explanation of this action." In London last night the bitterly anti - Soviet Polish government in exile declared that its vice - premier Jan Jankowski was one of those arrested by the Russians. The exile government also said the group was m Russia at the invitation of a Russian officer for the purpose of discussing the Polish question. Deny Charges The London Poles branded as "complete fabrication" the Russian charge of "diversionary acts (as the Poles expressed it) in the rear of the Red Army." Subsequently it was reported here that protests and demands made by the United States and Britain were very strongly worded for diplomatic statements, that the whole afair had been taken up by Stalin, Prime Minister Churchill and President Truman, ana that the western Allies are primarily concerned with two things: 1. Finding out what evidence Russia claims to have against the arrested Poles, and 2. Getting assurance of the right to have observers present if and when they are brought to trial. Chief indignation in high Brit ish and American circles here was attributed to the widely - accepted belief that the Polish represents tives had been invited to Russia for talks about forming a new Polish government and that weeks of inquiry had failed to produce from Moscow any information 'until Molotov dropped his bombshell arrest announcement to a big - four meeting at Stettinius' penthouse Thursday. Progress Reported Aside from his news on Poland, Stettinius had only reports of progress to give out. He issued the texts of the score of amend ments on which the big - four had agreed and also the texts of two amendments which had British American - Chinese support but on which Molotov had reserved his opinion for the time being. His favorable reaction, however, was forecast by American and British officials both because of the nature of the amendments and the fact that he had approved them m principle. One would author ize the world assembly of nations to review any situation which might be a cause of war; the other WDuld allow defense treaties made against the Axis enemies of this war to remain in force independ ently of the world security council until the governments concerned want to hand that particular se curity job over to the council. The purpose fo this amendment is to make the Russian - French, Russian - British and similar al liances work autonomously and prevent the security council from doing anything to limit their el fectiveness. To the Latin Ameri. can nations this has raised a hope tnat they will get also a special exemption for the Pan - American system. W jtrKt' zX if SSGT. ROBERT D.
