Soviet Foreign Minister V. M, Molotov said in a Moscow speech last Thursday that "the secret of the atom bomb ceased to exist a long time ago." He did not say specifically that Russia had the atom bomb. Prime Minister Stalin had said, 13 months before, that "monopolis tic possession of tne atom bomb cannot long continue. This was in answer to a as to whether he believed possession of the bomb by the United States was a "threat to peace. L'Intransigeant said the Russian test was held in the presence oi three high Soviet army officers and of Servei Vavilov, director of the Soviet nuclear research service. Besides Vavilov, who also is president of the Russian Academy of Sciences, many other academy specialists were among the 280 persons present as observers, the account said. Among the military men, it said, were Marshal Klementi Y. Voroshilov, Marshal Ivan C. Bag - ramian and Marshal Andrei A. methods. The article said the Russians were being aided by a number of German scientists who had accept ed Russian offers of positions at Atomgrad. Among these it named Prof. Gustav Hertz, German cyclotron constructor and authority on uran ium 235; Dr. Robert Doepel, Leip zig physicist: Prof. Ludwig Bevilo gua and a Prof. Theissen, both identified as veterans of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Berlin, Griggs reported that Soviet scientists working on the bomb in cluded Profs.

These calumnies were wont to be thrown at me by the gutter press." The other detendants present also made their final statements yesterday. Some are being tried in absentia. The trial began October 29, on an indictment accusing Maniu and the other defendants, most of them associated with him in the Peasant party, of conniving with the United States for intervention in Romania and for the violent overthrow of the Communist - backed Romanian government. Testimony elicited at the trial resulted last week in the resigna tion of Foreign Minister Gheorghe Tatarescu and three other cabinet members belonging to the Na tional Liberal party. Tatarescu was replaced as foreign ministry by Anna Pauker, veteran um munist leader.

S., Nov. 1, (Jf) The 89 - ton Dragger Rainbow of Boston piled up on Sunday Point near . the entrance to Yarmouth Harbor last night and three Boston fishermen lost their lives. At least two others were missing and believed dead. The dead and missing were not identified by name. A fishing boat picked up three bodies floating in the water near the grounded vessel, which was breaking up slowly. Two of the crew made their way ashore. They were George Walsh, 35, Cambridge, Mass., and Ship's Cook Henry White, 60. on A Boston report quoted, the Rainbow's owners as saying she was carrying a crew of 10, but police here said they knew of only seven men aboard. The vessel had had engine trouble ans was pro ceeding out of Yarmouth for Boston when the accident occurred. Marshall Places (Continued From Page 1) Latin - American needs by loans through the Export - Import Bank. As Marshall gave his testimony the foreign situation, there were indications that President Truman may meet stiff opposition if he asks for new cost of living controls at home. Washington, Nov. 11, Secretary of State Marshall testified today it is vital that Germany's economy be restored to the point where its people can become self - supporting and contribute to ' Europe's economy. Senator George (D - Ga) told reporter he is prepared to fight any effort to place new euros on the domestic economy. Mr. Truman is calling a special session of Congress for next Mon day to deal with aid for Europe said he also will ask the law makers to help - put a brake on spiraling prices at home to ease the blow of. increased exports under the long range recovery program. But George said he sees no reason for Congress to grant the allocation and priority authority widely expected to form the basis for any anti - inflation program. I have no interest in either long or short range aid to Europe if the cost of that program to us is going to be a completely managed, regimented economy at home," the Georgia Senator declared. "Part of Europe s troubles now are caused by its regimented economy, we don't want the OPA back and if we are going to allocate such commodities as wheat and steel, we will be taking steps toward a managed economy here." 7 Persons Hurt (Continued From Page 1) ran off the highway where con' struction is underway and in at' tempting to return to the road, the auto lurched across the highway and crashed into the auto operated by the Rev.

Palestine Plan Pushed dearer Vote As U.S., Russia Reach Agreement Lake Success, Nov. 11, (JP) Agreement between the United States and Russia on enforcing partition of Palestine today pushed the proposal to create independent Jewish and Arab nations in the Holy Land nearer a United Nations vote. Dr. Herbert V. Evatt of Aus tralia, chairman of the Assembly's 57 - nation .Palestine Committee predicted the ballot on acceptance or. rejection of partition would come within three days in the committee. The outcome remained in doubt despite the rare U. S. - Soviet accord because of strenuous Arab objections. , Another unknown factor was the eventual attitude of the British government toward the enforce ment plan, which provides that Britain, as mandatory power, shall "be responsible for the mainte nance of . law and order and the conduct of essential public services in Palestine' for an interim pe riod preceding independence. The cabinet was scheduled to meet in London today and a Brit - lsh spokesman said his delegation Truman Leads (Continued From Page 1) in Japan, was featured speaker in ceremonies at Cincinnati, and Rear Admiral Oswald S.. Col - cloughm, Judge Advocate of the Navy, spoke at Scranton, Pa. Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nim - itz said in an Armistice Day state ment that a "strong, well equipped Army, Navy and Air Force" is necessary to V assure Americans "that the peace gained for us by the heroic sacrifice of the men and women of both World Wars is preserved in the ideals for which they fought." Eichelberger described beaten Japan as "a great reservoir of do tential friends, to act as deterrent and perhaps even to put off the day when our lads will march again." The commander of the Eighth Army - of Occupation said the Japanese "would have been savage conquerors had they defeated us," but now "look upon us with respect alnd even budding friendship." The General did, not elaborate on Japan's usefulness as a ' "deterrent" in his address. However, the islands lie geographically between the conflicting interests and ideologies of the United States fid Russia. Declaring that two world wars should have taught this - country the lesson ot preparedness, Eichel berger asserted that "if, over a period of year, we had prudently expended $25,000,000,000 for in dustrial preparation and airplanes this as against the $700,000,000, - 000 this war will have cost us by 1972 neither Germany nor Japan would have dared fight us." In this connection, he said that as World War II approached he learned that the unit he command ed was receiving frequent visits from Capt. Fritz Weidemann, then a German consul general here and a friend Of Hitler. "Needless to say, he was scout ing our team as surely as a pros' pective opponent scouts a Notre Dame football team," said Eichel berger. "If, at the time, we had rea sonable military power, Weidemann and his underlings .would have so advised Hitler and Ger many would have scarcely chosen to risk defeat." Royall declared today the United States must base its de fense on a universal military training program because "the potential forces that might be raised against us are immensely powerful." The world is in a state "which we cannot sensibly face without adequate military force, Royall said. 'We must never lose the hope and the belief and the desire that there be peace," he said. We must preserve our faith, but added to faith must be the reality of works. It will only court disaster if we adopt the soothing but illusionary course of minimizing the importance of each separate imposition of any selfish nation.' "As the 1930's must have taught us, every aggressive step though seemingly unimportant in itself can be cumulative combination with other steps throw us into war and at the same time weaken our will and our ability to fight the war." Military preparedness is not cheap in money nor in men, Royall continued, but "dollars spent in defense will be the best investment that America has ever made." Friendship Train Heads For Cheyenne Green River, Wyo., Nov. 11, (P?) The Friendship Train, carrying food for Europe's hungry people, neadea today tor Cheyenne, wyo., where it will pick up five additional cars. Six cars of foodstuffs were add ed here last night as Gov.

The British have insisted that they would not seek to enforce any Holy Land so lution which was not acceptable to both the Jews and Arabs. The Jews accept partition and the AraDs tnreaten iorce u it is adopted. A nine - nation "partition" sub commitee failed to give final ap proval to the new plan last night aespite the overall U. S. - Russian agreement on the grounds that the functions and authority of a pro posed U. N. with interim administration not been sufficiently clarified. The plan calls for termination of the British mandate over Pales tine May 1, 1948, and creation of the two independent countries no later thar next July. 1.
