COUKint NR\VS Germany's Future of Concern To United States and Nations Of West Europe, General Soys I EDITOR'S NOTE: The fuliye of Germany is one ol Uic problems which obtvrvcrs' relieve will deeply atfi'cl history, what an Umicu States plans (or .Germany? Virgil Pinklcy, vice president and general Europeh manager of 'united. Press, carried mis question to HOI-IIH. T.scrf he'talked to (he man'best qualified to answer and In the fol lowing cxcltith't interview lie presents Ihu views of (Jen Lucius D Clay,) ' (Clearing Bombed-Out U. S. Embassy t TUKSrUY, OCTOEEIt !'.S, 1H17 riNKLKY United Press Staff Correspondent (World Copyright lij- United Press) BERLIN, Oct. 28. (U.P.I— Berlin will continue to be headquarters of Gen. Lucius D. Clay regardless of Ihe oulsome ol the London Conference of Foreign Ministers, the commando!-in-chief of the Untied States Army European Command and American military governor lor Germany told the United Press in an exclusive interview yesterday. "I Intend to remain here with my+ . staff," the general said emphatically. •The only way United States forces would leave Berlin would be oy fcsce of arms o;- a peace treaty with Germany." he continued. Asked if he were apprehensive of removal by force, Gen. Clay smiled and said: "i do not believe force would be applied at tlita lime to remove us from Berlin. v "We are here to slay regardless of possible obstanclcs and "difficulties." Vila! Months Near at Hand In a general review of Germany and related problems, the general,, who is commander in chief of American forces from the Mid-Atlantic right up lo the Russian frontiers, - said that next year is one of decision "nnd the next six months are vital ones." "If we arc able to help Europe back on Its icel. then the situation should be eased by next June or • July." lie added. General Ciay hoped a definite decision about Germany would be reached during the London conference starting Nov. 25. He stressed • • that the time has passed when we could afford to play around with this issue. Backing down or compromise were ruled out. "We are playhig. this one for keeps." he ruled bluntly. "PiiHinir Western Europe back on its feet is a matter of our own existence and security." The general stressed that any Hid program to Europe was an investment in the American way of life. Such assistance tends lo strengthen the Democratic system which pcr- • mits individual rights and ^private enterprise to operate freely. The interview revealed that Gen. v Clay believes aid to Europe in Ihe form of pump priming may not . require such endless expenditures as some envisage. Once European production Increases, many current problems will be solved. Production will enable Europe to have consumer goods, more food »t legitimate prices and will ease . the dillicult housing situation. Once these are obtainable, meii and wo- '.-..' men 'will work. There will be ample incentive, especially il Ihey can do * -V this without living under" a police -'--"state. ' '. -' ' ' . . Vital Issues a! Slake General Clay admitted freely that big and vital issues are at "stake-. and said that there would bn balls fumbled or si-mnls called off by the United States. The policy of the American'government, and his pla.115, arc firm. Despite the long trip from Washington, a nasly cold, a heavy program of recent Washington conferences and accumulated work. Ilia commander in chief was In line •- form. He is full of pep. He. spoke quietly but with determined cniplia- sis. His mind has thc qualities of » steel trap—sharp, strong, decisive. There is just a trace of Georgia in his speech. -The general stressed Ihe need for decision now, lo be followed by action. He said lime <4ces not work for Russia alone. The fact that : Russia needs every possible man on the home, front was mentioned. | r There is an apparent drain on Soi vicl economy to maintain all mill• tary installations and commitments 'in Eastern Europe hnd Germany. • "There nre growing problems in the Soviet Zone of Germans'." the general said, because thc economy of this district has been mined ill- most, to a point of collapse. Economic responsibilities in the zone are likely to become an increasing » .burden on Russia. This, in the opin- • Ion of the general, becomes more so i if the Russian Zone of Gcrmanv is entirely cut off from the remainder of the country. The American military governor of Germany said the United Stales as well as Britain. Russia anil ,_. .France has a duly in ijs occupa- tion of Germany. "We intend to meet our obligations fully." he declared. These include re-establishing Germany as a country nipable of providing a decent iivine standard for its people and contributing to European recovery, simultaneously preventing Germany from becoming a menace lo European and world peace. To enable these desired results, 11 single economic unity must be established, thc general believes. Stresses Firmness, Courage Clay, who should have b.'en tired and possibly gloomy, appeared in uelter spirits than I had seen him previously, although he smoked cigarettes as furiously as ever. During a conversation lasting nearly an hour the uencral said several limes that "firmness and cour- ni'.c are the best way to prevent a war and timidity and irresolution I lie best way to start one." The interview took place as the soft twilight'of a late October evening closed in on Berlin. At the rear of thc gcnrral was his four-star flair. At Ills feet slept his pet Scot- tic. George. General Clay, like Gen. Dwlght D. Eisenhower and thc late President Roosevelt, keeps his dog lu his ollice. George, as most Scotties, is independent but he docs like to romp with his master. Returning lo the London conference, Gon. Clay reiterated Ilia', "failure" would not mean a complete breakdown in Germany. He -implied that if thru happened". Eastern and Western Germany would continue to BO their way on a bipartite or tripartite basis wherever four-power action proved impossible. His rlo-ins words were Unit tlv; United stales has liikcn over one fourth of Berlin and has planted Ihe American flag here, where it will continue to fly.
