PAGE TWO IMATIIEVILLK /AUK.) (JOUK1KH NEWS US Going Ahead With Jap Treaty Russians Bitterly Opjjkttc Plans for 11-Notion Discussion « By REX CItANEY . • (United Press Slaff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Sept. 0. (UPI — , Despite Russian opposition, the , United- States \vas reported deter, f mined today to go ahead with plans <• for early Japanese peace treaty dis- , cusstoiis by all other Interested powers,!' The Soviets have twice rejected U. s. proposals for a conference or all the 111 interested Pacific nn- lions. Russia Insists that the matter first" should be discussed and the groundwork laid by the tour big Pacific powers — Britain, China* -Russia nnd the United Stares. American officials, in turn, have rejected the Russian view. They hold that establishment of the 11'- power Tar Eastern Commission, of which Russia Is a member, "con- stituted.a recognition of the primary Interests of these powers !n i post surrender policy matters for i Japan , hence in the peace setlle- i nient.".- \ To some top State Department, oificialii, the only alternative is for the United States, acting \:i consultation with thp Pacific powers other than the Soviet union, lo go ahead and schedule a date for starting . the peace talks. When the 10 powers do sgree on a time and place for such a meeting, the Soviet undoubtedly will be extended another invitation to participate. Motcow Radio Critical As heard by government monitors here, the .V.))scow radio ha.; been highly critical this wonR of the U. S. policy toward Japan in general and the., plans for the peace talks In particular. Tlio government-controlled radio said the United States had ignored *'the most important recommendation of the Allied Control Council'for Japan." "The; United State,'; is pursuing the same policy of unilateral action in the question of the peace treaty with Japan," the Moscow radio said. "The American government, on its own accosim. maai: the proposal for the convention of a conference .or li countries on the drafting of t'^e peace treaty with Japan, not considering it necessary first to discuss this convention with the oth'er great powers. "In other words, the United States does not intend to take the interests nnd,'. wishes of the other great powers-into consideration." A U. S. note to Russia on Aug. 15 pointed out that the United Slates had merely asked the other pacific ..powers for their views on a conference and that "such action cannot. he interpreted as unilateral."

FOX 4 (I'nKrd Press Slalf t'orri-spUmlenl) MEMPHIS, Tenn., Sept. 0. lUP) j -- Orville Ehvood Peny Is only three, but he's a lough 'mi, pard-1 nei 1 . ' Orvllle Elwood doesn't park n sSK-gun, "lilt lie's already gol his mail— with a .IG-gauge shotgun. The youngster was plnylng eov.'- Ijoy the other iluy "when he upped with his gun — a affair for which there were supposed to Le nc- shells — and Dang! He plugged (he stranger. Only the stranger wasn't n strange!'. He was Robert To-Anseiul, •J2, a friend of the lamlly. At the lime, Townscnd wa.s talking with the boy's mother. Townsend wns carted off to the Itcspltnl with n hole in his face .1 in his right hand and arm. When the sheriff's deputies came, he said he didn't know who did It. Mrs. J. A. Pi'rry said the same. Perry said lit; was a.slcep. C!d "Tight-Lip" Orvllle Elwood said nothing. He hid Ihe gun. Anil then he hid himself under an open closet .shelf. He wns scared, but he wasn't talkin'. pardner. No, sir. Just like in the movies, he didn't know nothin'. "I been playing cowboy," wa.s all he tolti the deputies. So the xheriii arrested .his father and look him off to jail. That set Crville Elwooil to thinking, so he changed his .story. "A big fat m:m" shot Townsend. the boy said. That, suh, was his stcry. and he was stuck with it. So were the deputies. Then the deputies noticed Orvllle Elwood hud a powder burn o:t his lace. Aha! they said. "Look here, sonny." they cajoled, "you know who "did that 'Ehooling. Go ahead and tell Ihc truth. Where is the gun? Nobody's going 1C hurt you." But maybe Orville Elwood resented the comle.scenriing "sonny." He was a cowboy — and he ..still | didn't know nothin'. All right, said the sheriff's de- | puties, "Find lhat gun before lo- niglu or we're coining back and* take everybody to jail." I So Orville Elwood'.s lolks gave | him the "third degree" — they stuffed him with soda pop and candy and talked sweel lalk to him. Even a tough "cowboy" had to break under thai ordeal. Orvllle Elwood soon found the guu. And Mrs. Peny said the youngster had played with II for several weeks, but she thought it was harmless because it had a broken stock and there were no shells available for it. But, a few days before, her biothcr-ln-taw had cnrdCMly left n couple of shells around loose. The cowboy grabbed 'em. The rest was history. Orville Elwood played cowboy for keeps. He got his man. He didn't get arrested. He didn't get spanked. But he was n mighty tired cowboy, pardner. "I don't know notlmi'," he \ira^ tested and fell asleep. , Tired Old Hen, Near Exhaustion from Heat, Barges Into News Office Henrietta Hen was lost. Not only lhat, .she was suffering from the hent and very thirsty when she staggered in ihe door of the Courier News yesterday. How fur she had come and from where none of Ihe employes could Hill .she seemed lo kiuw thai she would be taken care of and once inside the door sat down and panted. Some rushed to bring water and others clucked sympathetically as they fanned her. Slu 1 made no protest lo the name Henrietta but neither did she answer. And in .spite of her dirty white leathers there was little doubt lhal shi! belongs lo ihe upper class of chtcki-a laud as .she held her hcud hli;li even when slu- wns too Ured lo stand. There is .so far no clue its to h?! 1 home. Theories range from Hie possibility lhat she has .suffered a lupsu of memory, that she went on one Ing "binge" and wandered too far from home, or thai she made the Ireacli- ertiits journey across downtown slvci'Ls to the Courier to plead for an add in the classified .section under the "home wanted" division.
