March 9. (U.P.I—Rus- sia charged last night Hint the United States, Britain and France were organizing Western Germany into a base for an attack on Easloia Kurope. The Soviet diplomatic note repeated a previous protest made peb 13 which said the ilirce-powor conference on Germany in Londoi violated the Potsdam agreement and undermined the four-power Allied Control Council in Germany The first Soviet protest was rejected by the u. S. State Department, on Feb. 21. Yesterday's Soviet, note was a rejection of the U. S. reply.

The House probably will consider the measure Thursday. The bill carried no money for the Customs Bureau, the Coast Guard for the acquisition of strategic and critical materials or for tax refunds. Those needs will be taken care of in another bill. The committee also approved per- .nanent appropriations totalling 50,101,422,213 over which it actually has little say. These Included $5,250.- ^J.OOO for interest on the public Wbt and $3,310,385,930 for old age and unemployment payments. The committee's criticism nf the Internal Revenue Bureau was one of the most scathing attacks nn a federal agency hy a congressional body in recent years. It recommended that the Commission on Organization of the Executive Branch of the Government, headed by former President Herbert Hoover, give top priority to an analysis of the bureau "at the earliest possible moment." The committee's charges were based on a report which combined the results of an inquiry by the committee's own Investigators as well as studies made by the bureau itself.

World-wide ERP Plen is Favored House Republicans Reject Marshall's Plea Temporarily WASHINGTON, March 9. (UP) — House Republican leaders today rejected—at least temporarily—Secretary of State George C. Marshall's plea that the House keep other foreign aid out of the European re- rovery program. At a conference with Senate. President Arthur H. Vandenberg, they stood pat on their plan to include the ERP in n "single pac.t- age" with the administration's request for $570,003,003 in Chinese aid f and an extra $275.0:0.000 for Greek- Turkish aid. Marshall had appealed personally to Martin yesterday to consider the ERP program separately in the this currcsijomlcjit participated ur as follows: 1. The Dealest single problet fiicing Ihc American people is llir | of relations with Russia. 2. Tliis pi'oblcm should not b insoluble by peaeofi considered mean 1 ;. Would Call Stalin's Hand 3.

Regarding labor, MacArthur i frequently has slated he' favors I a middle'course with protection of human rights, whether those of I employes or employees, as a primary consideration in deciding lalmr disputes. Regarding economic ami financial questions, MacArthur'.s policy in Japan always has been that of a "sane middle course" between the extremes of capitalism and socialism. MacArthur entered the 1948 presidential nomination race by issuing a statement saying he would run if "called by the American people." MacArLhur referred specifically to the April 6 primary election in Wisconsin, where his name has been entL-red on the Republican ticket, and said he would run even ; though he does not seek office and has no plans for leaving Japan. j "MacArthur for President" bul- Dmp Explodes At Least 100 Feared Killed by China Blast Near U.S. Base TSINGTAO, China, Mar. 9 V \UT> —A lar; Is.
