To Relieve Marshall Plan Strain Western Economic Experts Look To Trade With Reds By Jay O. Harden (North America:! NewfpaDcr Alliance) WASHINGTON. Believe It or not, economic expert of the West-em nations are looking to restoration of trade with Russia and Its Communist satellites as one of the main hopes for relief from competitive strains now afflicting the Marshall Plan. , All developments since Russia's lifting of the Berlin blockiide have tended to confirm the Impression, when this action was first announced, that tt was prompted mainly by the economic pinch Russia and Its satellites were suffering on account of the stoppage of Eaat-West European trade, Tuesday, President Shvernllc of the Soviet Union declared that his government was prepared to receive, with attention and interest, any United States proposals to broaden Russian - American trade and looking toward general relaxation of economic barriers. Secretary of State Acheson promptly replied that, since Russia rejection of the Marshall Plan started the East-West trade stoppage and most of the remaining obstacles are Imposed by the East, the first move for loosening these obstacles must come from Russia. Mr. Acheson left no doubt that the United States Is receptive to such an approach. Almost at the same time John J. McCloy, the newly installed administrator of the American aone of Germany, was proclaiming "increased freedom in East-West trade" as one of his foremost objectives. Two Agreements Made Two trade agreements this week: are pointed to as Indicative tt the new trend. One of these, providing for exchange of $70,000,000 worth of goods between Poland and the American, British and French zones of Germany, was announced as creating "possibilities of development of natural trade" between Poland and the projected new German federal republic. The second agreement Involves Russia, Poland and Czechoslovakia behind the Iron Curtain and Finland, In the shadow of that barrier. The unique characteristic of this deal is its round-about exchange. Finland Is to ship 100,000,-000 rubles worth of prefabricated houses and lumber to Russia; and In equal value Russia ships food to Czechoslovakia and Poland, and the latter two countries respectively send sugar and coal to Finland. This la Just the sort of multiple-trade exchange that American officials have been urging upon the Marshall Plan countrits. In an interview In U.S. News and World Report this week, John Foster Dulles emphasized the necessity of trade with the Communist East as an outlet for th rising volume of German manufactures. "France and Britain." he aaid, are concerned with the prospect ot having to compete with a huge Oerman output. Perhaps the British annot meet some of the com-petftkm of the Germans particularly stove is seems that- the socialisation program in England has raked toota, I think there Js a feeling in lEurope, both la the East and West, that Germany should trade both ways and get much of her food and raw materials from the east in exchange for industrial products," Dulles eontinued, and he added: There is need to break down the Iron Ctsrtaia by trade between the East and West."

Driver of tlie car, Mr. Boyd, told police he was going north on Scona Read and hed just rounded a small bend when his passenger attracted his attention. He said the right front wheel went up the curb and crashed Into the wooden pole, shearing it off at the base. 3 Bridge Spans Now In Place Three of four spans on the old low level bridge have been raised level with the new bridge snd with work continuing at a favorable pace, the bridge should be in use again within two or three weeks, J. D. A. MacDonald, acting city engineer, said Monday. Mr. MacDonald stated that the raising operation had proceeded without mishap. Concrete deck of the old bridge haa not split or cracked in any place. At present, he said, crews are pouring cement to rane trie concrete piers and when the final span has been raised, the deck will be completed. Car And Store Damaged By Fire Two fires damaged a car and two business premises near Jasper a-ve. and 99 st. on Saturday. The front seat of a car owned by James Louis, 13004 102 ave, was badly damaged by fire while the car was parked In the lane north of Jasper ave. near 99 st. At the same time there was a fire at the rear of the G. R. Williams and Company, 10124 98 st. This spread to the roof of the Williams Company premises and burned its way back to the store. Premises of the Regal Hat Company, 1012 98 st. were filled with smoke but the extent of the damage is not known. : NB. POLICE SEEK THIEVES HALIFAX, (CP) Police throughout Nova Scotia Sunday night intensified a search for robbers who broke into the Garrick Theatre on downtown Sackvllle at. here and escaped with $1,000 cash. is uppermost in consideration of what, should be the future United States policy in the Far East. Just as Germany cannot recover without trade with her eastern neighbors. Japanese industry cannot be rebuilt without markets In China and other Asiatic countries, increasingly pervaded by Communist. A group In congress Is shouting against any trade with Chinese Communists on the ground that this would tend to strengthen them. Most of the state department's Far Eastern experts, however, take the opposite view that exchange of goods is the only safe way of penetrating the Iron Curtain and that if the Communists succumb to our ways of trading they may become more receptive of our viewpoints with other respects.

Both Sides 'Getting Along' Berlin Enters Third Phase Since War Cold Courtesy By Lionel Shapiro (North American Newspaper Alliance) BERLIN. Since the Paris agreement on a "modus Vivendi'' in Berlin, a new spirit has developed in sector relationships between the Western Allies and the Soviet authorities. It has developed and hardened quickly into a pattern which is expected to remain constant until the larger question of the unity of the German nation finds a solution. This spirit is one of sullen acceptance of the quartered status of the city as a permanent conditionthat is, permanent to the extent that the present impasse In Europe is considered permanent. The Soviets have stopped trying to plague the Allies at every turn and, for their part, the Allies have stopped trying to read under-handediness into every Soviet move. While they are not cooperating, the two sides may be said to be getting along. One Allied diplomat put it this way: "We are like a couple of enemies who, having pinked each other in a duel, have satisfied our honor. The basic quarrel hasn't been settled, but we nod to each other on the street and respect each other's rights." This new attitude was clearly indicated in the cold but nevertheless effective collaboration which brought a settlement of the Berlin railway strike. It Is being confirmed each day by Allied authorities who must deal with their Soviet opposite numbers in handling the myriad problems which crop up in the running of a great city. What is more important, this attitude seems to be working more satisfactorily, as far as Berlin is concerned, than the unity of 1945 and the open enmity of 1948. The same diplomat said: "I think you are going to find Berlin sliding out of the news. If one can judge by the latest Russian attitude, this Is going to be just another frontier town with the zonal line cutting rmtrn m rr r rr in? o irrr- hi Till 1 -H' ;;::;4j- III ... but just try to buy them in any other car at any price 1 You're not asked to pay extsa for the extra beauty you get only in Hudson or for any of the other advantages that make the New Hudson Canada's 4-Most Car! fVfTYlfl 3-MOST Road-WOrthy!

DAWSON ( Rt'.K.K, MONDAY, JULY 11, 1649 I 4 " J' p 4 If through it. It's fate, like -that of any other German town on the line, will be settled on a much higher level the same level which will settle the fate of Germany. The Russians have sjrply given up trying to grab off Berlin separately. The struggle is over." Thus begins the third post-war phase for this sorry ci;y. The first began July 3, 1945. when Berlin became a symbol of mutual victory for the conquerors of Germany. This-attitude deteriorated gradually until June 1943, when the blockade made the former capital the focal point of the cold war. Now the city has acquired a rather more comfortable tratus as merely another point, albeit a detour point, along the long line of the Iron Curtain. On a bright, sunny day this cor-re?pondent drove into the Russian sector with a small group of American soldiers to visit the eye-filling Russian war memorial. The place was thronged by German civilians as well as groups of Soviet troops. The attitude of the Russians toward us proved to be an apt reflection of the new relationship In Berlin. Four years ago they would have come up to us to make some kind of jocular conversation in sign language, perhaps to exchange insignia, most likely to try to make a deal for watches or other Western luxuries. Last year we would have been scrutinized at the sector line, perhaps detained, or at lsast'kept under surveillance. This time we drove into the sector without a sign of a Russian guard. At the memorial, they kept their distance and observed us with frigid curoslty. Obviously they didn't like us; we were persons they had been instructed to distrust, even to hate, but they respected our right to be there. So far as Berllners are concerned, those to whom I have talked feel satisfied with the modus vivendi. They have a chance to live decently again. In a sense, their status has it u Ernst; X.

Flt.-Lt. Lome Tapp, D.F.C., 29, said Friday in an interview that in 345 missions on the airlift he found not only an Anglo-American friendship which exceeded anything in the air war but that the endless operating provided unparalleled opportunities for training In transport flying. He was on the job a year and was the first pilot to make 300 trips. Russian interference with planes in the airlift corridors constituted more of a nuisance than a threat, he said.
