FRIDAY, OCTOBER 81, 194T Central German Government For Non-Soviet Zones Seen Unless Russians Co-operate (EDITOR'S NOTE: Virgil M, Plnkloy. vice president and (ener.l European manager of the United Press, learnt In » lour of Germany h.l u 8. and British authorities want to set up . cenlra , governm j for Western, Germany., if the Russians hold out. aealim complete unification of the Reich in (he foreign ,„,„,„„,. conference next monm The following dispatch on that subject follows an exclusive interview Pinkley obtained frou Gen. Lucius D. Clay, American military governor Clay s»ld the next six months would b« vital.) \ By VIKGIL M. PINKLEY United Pre« Sl»ff Correspondent FRANKFURT, Germany, Oct. 31. (UP.i-Amerlcan and' British occupational authorities favor a central political government Jn the non-Soviet zone* of Germany if the Con.erence of Foreign Minister, in London ^lext month falls to consolidate th. Reich as a unit at least economically. . + J? L _™!?_Y!V' B _ <Ank.V COURIER NEWS It is generally assumed that the French would agree, because the drain on Prance's economy to "support its rone of Germany Is growing. And American, British and French occupational authoritin have not given up hope that Itus•la will afiree to the unity of Germany and especially In Ihe eco- ' notnic field, because It is costing the Russians tnone.v to uperale their zone separately. But authorities in the Western zones feel strongly that if the Russians stall at (he foreign ministers' conference, as they have been doing for two-and-a-half years, then the three non-Soviet zones must operate as a union. American occupational experts recommended such procedure as long ago as last March. British officials have adopted a similar attitude and recommended it to their government. Two days ago, Gen. Lucius D Clay, American military governor in Germany, said: "I believe it is essential at an early date to have the greatest possible amalgamation of the occupation zones of Germany in political as well as economic union." This correspondent during (,h» last two weeks has had many talks with lop-ranking French. British and American military and diplomatic representatives in Germany. To a man, they agreed that the economic unity of Germany, foreseen as far back as tha Potsdam conference and to which Russia greed, must be established immediately." The Russians have badly stripped eastern Germany. Their policy in this respect has undermined'- the economy of their zone, which is roughly 40 per cent of German territory with a population of about 18,000.000. The British, American and French zones contain about 48,000,000 Germans and most of the rich industrial and mineral areas —the Ruhr, Khineland and Saar. A leading British official put it like this: "bi- and tri-zonal consolidations are natural developments. The same applies to the Soviet Zone, too. although it may take some months to convince the Soviets. Establishment of a central government, for Germany cannot' be stopped,, except perhaps as a temporary measure. A strong German government in the West is tssential today." Most American and British authorities agreed that it was almost impossible 'to have a central government In Germany strong enough , to carry out essential work unless there also was political and economic integration. Economic experts believe that if the Russians insist on going their way alone, the cost of maintaining their : zone would constantly increase. Eventually, it would cost the Russians around-*500,000,000 a year. The French zone Is increasingly becoming a liability. Some estimated that it will cost Prance as high as 5125,000,000 to operate its zone next year. The United States currently :s spending about 51,000,000,000 a year Little Rock Realtors Criticize Congressmen LITTLE ROOK. Oct. 31. (UP) — Little Rock Realtors E. L. Fausctt »nd Louis Cohen have accused the members of the congressional housing sub-committee of closing their minds to conditions in Arkansas. "The congressmen came to Ar; Kansas," the real estate men declared yesterday, "with their minds made up. . . . a i )( j they left the same way." Fausett and Cohen represented the Littlq Rock Real Estate Board In testifying before the committee Monday. in Germany. Authorities feel this is too much to continue indefinitely and especially if such investments do not start Germany and Europe on the road back to economic recovery. To this end, they feel a central 'government is essential Every o/ficia] this correspondent spoke to frankly hoped that the Russians would cooperate in the London conference and afterwards. But'in lieu of such cooperation, substitute plans are well advanced and they include bi-zonal or trl-zonal government ot provisional nature. Scientists Urged To Put Emphasis On Saving Lives CAMDEN, Ark., Oct. 31. (DP) — The editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. Morris Fishbcin, told the Arkansas Medical Society yesterday that medical discoveries are more important to mankind than atomic discoveries. "An atomic bomb can dcstroV 50.000 lives; but penicillin and streptomycin have already saved millions of lives," he declared. "Splitting the atom can develop vast energy; but a greater source of energy Is the millions of human beings who will live because of the development of blood plasma, blood derivatives and atabrine."
