WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 29 - , 1947 Austria-Germany Affairs Muddled Commitments at Yalta, Potsdam Blamed for Giving Reds Best Area AUBURN. N. Y., Oct. 29. (UP) — Chairman John Taber of the House Appropriations Committee ycslcrdaj charged that the situation in Austria and Germany "is terribly muddled becau.se of tile very embarrassing commitme'nts made by President Roosevelt at Yalta and by President Truman at Polsctam." Tuber, who recently returned from Europe, said agreements reached at, tiie.se historic conferences permitted the Russians to move "into the most productive part of Germany aiul Austria." "The Russians," he asserted, '-have la a very large extent stripped the productive capacity of the factories and with inefficient management, have reduced the production of others." "They have taken the tood iway from the people in the territories and shipped it to Russia and th' Balkan states," Taber said. Tabtr said thai unless Germans "can be put to work and made lo produce, they are going to be a drum upon the economy of the United States." "One of the mast disiressnu; pic- tuifs that j sav,' was the sale of a Inrge quantity O f trucks, automobiles and other supplies out of Army surplus, at a low price, lo a Communist-controlled company in Italy.'' Taber raid that lie did not "believe the Communists will start a war if we are on the alert but America must bend its every effort in this situation." BLVTHEVILLE (ARK.)
