PACK SIX BIATHEVILLE <ARK.)' COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1947 Austrian Issues May Face Delay Soviets Position To Meet Opposition By Western Powers BY EDWARD a V. ROBERTS (United rress Staff Correspondent) LONDON, Nov. 11. (UP)—American officials believed today there would be small chance of the Big Four foreign ministers reaching an agreement on Austria in their conference beginning Nov. 25, if the Russians have their way about Ills order In which matters arc discussed. When Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister, A. A. Smirnov submitted a live-point .agenda for the foreign ministers conference to yesterday's session of the foreign ministers' deputies, Austria was the the last on the list. Ahead of the Austrian question were: (1) procedure for preparation of the German peace treaty; (2) the form and scope of the provisional German political organization; (3) the report of the Allied Control Council on German demilitarization, and (4) economic principles—the level of German industry and a reparations plan. The foreign ministers disagree so thoroughly on the first four items American officials believe it would be A long time before they reach the Austiian Question. Russia agreed at Uie end of the war that Austria should have its independence as soon as possible. But, according to American officials, Russia is novMlie chief obstacle to Austrian Independence. The Americans and British want Austria to be discussed first by the foreign ministers and may press their point, today. Whitehall officials also criticized as "Unrealistic" the (Soviet proi»- gal to delay consideration of reparations until after tlie ministers had handled the "luiolly but comparatively unimportant" questions about peace conference procedure and establishment of a provisional government. '"Reparations is the baste point of difference between the Western powers and Russia over Germany," a foreign office spokesman said. It was indicated unofficially thai American and British quarters feared the Rufislans.would use the delay caused by long-drawn-out discu.s: sion of their first proposals to push forward (heir policy of taking reparations from current German production.

Negro Avoids Lynching by Joining Posse DANBtmy, N. G.. NOV. II. (UP) —Tight-lipped officers today refused to reveal the location of a 27- year-old lynchwlse Negro who calmly Joined an armed mob combing the hills to arrest him on charges of trying to rape a seven-year-old white Biri. Deputies said Harry L, Davis fell In with the armed mob and trudged over the hills with them for three hours before rlropipng out and go- inp. to sleep al-home.

Dunlap said the mob was still hunting with shotguns and pistols when Davis was arrested Friday night. Feeling wa.s high. He quietly look the Negro to Winston-Salem for safekeeping and Da- vl.s was moved again yesterday to an undisclosed jail.

(UPI— ] You know those bloodhounds you've read about and seen in movies sniffing the ground and bounding along hot on the trail of some escaped convict? Well, they're not bloodhounds nt' all. It all came out here today. Chances are what you saw were Cross-breed hounds—half red bone hound mid half July hound. Tlmt'.s what Atlanta dog expert G. R. Leo says. It took a Canadian prospector, more tlutn 1,000 miles from home, to get the true word on those so- called bloodhounds. A. V. Seymour, gold-hunter from Suribury, Ontario, figrred he could use some bloodhounds up there <n the wide open spaces—hunting lost trappevs and such. He'd seen some of those movies and read some of those stories, too. so he came all-the way to Georgia to get some genuine .manhuntln^ bloodhounds. He went to dog: expert Lee. Lee talked him out of 11. Bloodhounds aren't what they're cracked up to be, told him. No tenacity. a real manhunter. The Canadian prospector decided Lcc ought to know, because Lee furnishes all the bloodho—opps, we mean clogs—for official nmnlnmliag expeditions by Fulton County an.l Atlanta Police. So Seymour bought a pair or Riiarantcpd manhunting crossbreeds. They're on their way to Canada now. Anyway, from now on, if you sec a hound loafing around his kennel, leaning against the doghou.-;L door and showing a shocking lack of tenacity and stamina, that's probably a bloodhound. And when you sco one of those hounds all oiUhuslnUc, leaping and braying at the heels of an escaped convict, you can be pretty sure tha: he's a—you know.
