H. SHACKFORD United Press Staff Correspondent |y problem o UNITED NATIONS HALL prices high. Flushing, N. Y., Sept. 23 (U.P.)—UN Secrohiry General Trygvc Lie warned the great powers today that continuation of their disunity and suspicion of each other will wreck the United Nations and lead to war. In 8 solemn address closing general dehale at the UN assembly. IJc appealed to the great powers—especially the United States ami the Soviet Union—to abandon their diplomatic war and "show a willingness to compromise." "Without such a will, without cooperation and agreement, let me emphasize that no mechanism for tho maintenance of international peace nnd security, however, perfect, can be effective, he said. Lie said that it a'ns "impossible" and "intolerable" to think that the differences so flagrantly displayed here during the last week between the U. S. and the USSR should be allowed to lead to another war. AH nations want to prevent another war, but he added ominously: "The greatest difficulty lies in the fact that the (Treat powers susp«it each other or each otherV intentions. "It is fear which Is the preat danger. Fear breeds hate and hate breads clanger." •Acknowledging the different civilizations, ideas and interests in the world, 'Lie warned that the nations must strive to live and work together in peace despite such differences. Lies' address was a rebuttal to a week of speeches studded with bitter charges and countercharges, and many references to the possibilities of another war. Reminding the Rrcat powers that it was their initiative in the first place which created the United Nations, Lie called upon them to work constantly to jnoderat-j their differences and to prevent the splitting of the world into blocs. Lie's speech, moderate nnd frank, was in sharp contrast to the vi*- operative tone of those. member.>nn- tions which preceded him. It contained a sharp indirect rebuke to British Delegate Hector McNeil who yesterday tossed big power unity aside and casually characterized that unity as only "nostalgic nonsense or dangerous dishonesty." The keynote of Lie's appeal was that just as Mg power unity won the war, so it is equally mandatory to maintain that unity to preserve the peace and prevent another war. Lie's speech was that of a solemn nonpiirtisan in the current .struggle for power—the warning of 11 msti whose duty it is to watch the trends Sec SUSPICION on Page 3 Housewives, Hit by High Prices, Serve on Jury Investigating Living Cost CHICAGO, Sept. 23.

Lake Pontchartrain Overflows Grain and Food Problem Studied President Takes Time To Get Data on Needs In U.S. and Abroad BY GRANT DiLLMAN (United f*ress Stuff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Sept. 23. (UP) — President Truman was reported lo- day Lo be consicterimj ihrec ixwslWc answers to the urgent problems of high prices at home and hunger abroad. His final decision, it \vi\s snid, will also determine whether Congress is recalled in special session to provide emergency -stop-yap aid to Western Europe and how much—if any— Americans will be asked to pull i:i their own belts. The aHenuitivc.s. which were outlined to Mr. Truman yesterday by his cabinet food committee, were said to include: 1. No emergency action but a sharp reduction, in United States grain exports. This would have the effect of reducing inflationary influence. 1 ? on American prices but might jeopardize this country's foreign policy. 2. A lesser c;ut in grain exports coupled with an all-out voluntary rationing plan aimed at providing the additional grain. 'Many of the ' President's top advisors were said to-favor this approach to the problem a,s a middle course. 3. An effort to match last year's record breaking exports ol 567.CCO.- 300 bushels of grain. This would mean an involuntary conservation nrogrart^jeguiring a special session of CofigfcSs- to provide the necessary authority. Few Expect Special Session The last course apparently is out. Mast top officials seem to agree. ;hat by the time an effective con- rol program could be put into oper- itton, it would be too late. Agriculture Department experts said the problem is lo get Americans to siop insisting on choice meat, dairy nnd poultry products.
