The original suit was filed on behalf of the counties last week by two private attorneys and received the backing of the County Judges Association.

Shackford United Prea* Staff Correspondent LONDON, Dec. 6. (U.P.)—The Big Pour showed no' evidence today that they were prepared at: this session of the conference of foreign ministers to make the compromises necessary for eliminating their basic differences over Germany. The United states' George Marshall, Britain's Ernest Bevln and France's Georges Bldault accuse the Russians of insisting on dealing only in generalizations and miking false accusations. Russia's Viacheslav M Molotov says the others are 'only giving lip service to Big Four unity and are, in. fjjJti plotting to divide Germany permanently 'and set up a government for 'the..-.western part of'/It. Nearly "two-and-a-half years afr ter the Potsdam meeting, the Big Four are still arguing—and disagreeing—on how to treat Germany as an economic unit. It is still divided among the four victors. That is the real Issue. Russia SUndi Alone Russia Insists that an all-German central government and satisfaction of its reparations claims must precede economic unification. Tlie United States, generally supported by Briain, insists that steps toward unification, especially elimination of the present zonal barriers, must come first. France insists that the Saar must be incorporated into its economic sphere before economic unity ad even then it must not prejudice the future of the Ruhr and Rhineland Prance wants a special, four-power regime for the Ruhr. with other neighboring countries associated with it. Until there Is a break somewhere among these steadfast positions. there x appears to be little prospect of - any progress toward an agreement. Marshall asked the 564 question at this session of the conference yesterday, after Interpreting a Molotov remark as continued Insistence upon $10,000^ 000 reparations for Russia. Mnlolov Still Evasive He asked Molotov to say whether that was correct and If so to tell the council how he proposes for the Germans to meet such an obligation.

' Curbs on Buying By U.S. Proposed House Member Asks Placing of Controls In Foreign Aid Bill By Sandor S. Klein United Prfti SUf( Correspondent WASHINGTON, Dec, 8.
