COUKIfcR NEWS 8ATUKDAY, AUGUST 8, IMC •New Rules Are Put On Travel to Berlin BERLIN (AP) — The Russian zone Communists rcpor edly clamped severe new restrictions on traveling into Berli today in a desperate attempt to prevent a weekend rush r East Germans to American free food stations here. But thou tnds of hungry and resourceful made it anyhow. Itoe newest Red measures aimed it stopping even cyclists and pedes trlans from getting across the sec tor border. They were said to hav been ordered after a one-week ban on tho sale of railroad tickets am direct assaults by Red stormtroop •ra failed to smash the relief cam paign. Defying arrest and persecution the East Germans thumbed theit nosei at the Communist police by finding or making new loopholes Lines formed at the food stations before midmorning and the vas giveaway was expected to pass the two-million-parcel mark over the weekend. Yesterday 108,000 parcels were distributed—64,000 to resident* of the Russian occupation tone—bringing the total for 12 daqa to 1,865,000. Four East zone railroad workers who arrived this morning from Erfurt, in Thuringia, and Wittenberg, in Saxony-Anhalt, to join the food queues reported the Communists Sad taken three new steps to reinforce their leaky blockade: New Steps 1. Heavy police controls were Imposed on roads into Berlin in a 60-mile radius around the city to (top East Oerman food seekers from coming in on foot, bicycling or hiding in truck trailers. 1. The big Potsdam terminus of th* Berlin surface lines railroad stopped selling interurban tickets Into Berlin. This closed a loophole to many East Germans who had been buying rail tickets from distant points to tile Berlin suburbs, and then getting in via the suburban lines. Now only people with •workers tickets who could prove they lived in Potsdam but were employed in Berlin, were permi ted to ride Into the city. No Ticket Sales 3. Trusted Communist plain clothes police were stationed In th rail ticket offices of all major Sox let zone citis to tightn nfon mnt of the week-old travel ba to Berlin. Orders were telegraphe from the East zone railroad heat quarters in Berlin that any tlcke agent violating the ban would b jailed. Within a few hours many Eas Germnns had discovered a nc\ loophole. They rushed to a littl streetcar line that runs from Pots riain. in the Rusianzone, to th American sector of Berlin. Th jam there became so heavy tha West Berlin officials ran specia buses to haul the people in frorr ;he border to the food stations. Widespread Communist persccu tion continued against people wh took the American aid. In somi •Jlaces, pensions and other publli lid were cut off in reprisal. USAFR Recruits Sought Here S/Sgt.

After all, Korea is in the same orbit." The pact initialed in Seoul parallels closely The Philippines and Japanese treaties. The 16 nations with tvoops in Korea signed a pledge July 27 to fight again in the event of a new Red attack there, but it was not .nnounced until Friday. And Britain and Canada, both of whom signed, promptly qualified their commitments, apparently because of concern over consequences of war on the China main-. land. The declaration signed last month in Washington says of a possible new Communist attack: ' 'The consequences of such a breach of the armistice would be •rave that, in all probability it would not be possible to confine Administration, provides for establishment of cooperative societies and marketing organizations will cut out the low "middlemen" prices by buying up farmers' crops at better rates.'
