TRUMAN SINGLE COMES' FIVtf *Bevin of Britain To Ask Molotov For Explanations Information Sought 1 Of Russian Handling Of Nazi Prisoners LONDON, March 12. (IIP) — British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin was quoted by Radio Moscow as charging at the Big Four meeting today that German war prisoners, both officers and men, were enlerinj; thc Soviet armed forces. MOSCOW, March i;» (UP) —British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bcvin will strike back sharply at V. M. Molotov today in the Big Four meeting, demanding .that the Russians explain v/Jit they are doing with the German prisoner they hold, it was learned. Bevin has decided upon a strong retort to Molotov's charge yesterday that the British have failed to demilitarize their zone of Germany and are keeping-more than 80,000 Germans In military formations. Molotov also implied that the British are hiding war criminals In the Rightest Yugoslav and Polish military units. It was also learned that Secrcta-, ry of state George C. Marshall will present a new proposal for the economic unification of the four German zones.. The plan was stil'l in p'^na ration. The United States has sought without success for more Ih.in a year to remove the economic barriers separating the four zones. The American idea was for central administrative agencies to taka over zonal economic tasks. Byrnes rlan Presented The original Byrnes plan called fir six central administrative ag v'"if .for industry, finance, food and RErioultureT foreign trade; commu nications and transportation. They ivi're to be staffed bv Germans under direction Of the Allied Con !rol Council in Berlin. This called-for elimination o zonal authority over these agencie, —a condition the Soviets never ac ccpted. Marshall's proposal was expecte< to follow these lines closely bu may contain additional condition! Britain and the United States In vited Prance and Russia to linl their zones with the Anglo-Amer lean zones when the latter wer unified. % Russia has said she Is willing t< unify the whole country economi cully, but wanted zonal authorities lo retain the right to Interpret control council decision on economy. The United states has contended this would nullify the unification. Marshall sought today to keep the the council for foreign ministers hammering away at fundamentals of the German, issue instead of bickering nnd propagandizing over details. Marshall made clear that hc refuses to sit quietly and without protest through hours of wrangling over what lie considers non-essentials. Hc doesn't want the conference to bog clown In procedural debate. -'ay Increases -or Two Missco Officials Okayed LITTLE ROCK, Ark., March 12. -(UP)—A measure raising the sal- n<a of (he county and circuit ourt clerks in Mississippi County .'as on Gov.

Marshall could not conveniently appear now before n congressional committee, but lie could senr a bell-rinsing statement from Mos cow in support of nld-for-Grccce. The story of thc Greek crisis begins sonic weeks ago when Mark Ethridge, editor of the Louisville'^ Ky., Courier-Journal, and Paul Por-' ter, former head of OPA, bemm bombarding Washington with cablegrams in code warning of condlr. tions in Greece. Ethridge i» the American member of an Allied commission in Greece. Porter is on a special mission for President Truman to investigate Greek conditions. Both urc believed to have warned the administration that the British contemplated withdrawing from Greece. Our intelligence also heard Ihi-se reports. Intelligence oiricers were inclined to think they were a ish bluff designed merely to persuade the United States to hurry some additional funds into Greece;. But the British lorced thc issue on Feb. 23 in a note formally advising thc United States that the once-powerful British Umpire no longer could afford lo maintain a small Greek occupalionary fnrco. The note said the British would pull out at the end of this month. Up to that time thc Greek crisis and its implications were very hush- hush hereabouts. Everyone apparently hoped things were not as bad as Porter and Ethridge were reporting by cable. The British note did it. On Feb. 27 Mr. Truman summoned congressional leaders to the White Housc. Marshall stepped before' them and rang an alarm be'l the like of which has not been heard here since before the w.ir. Marshall lold thc congressmen that British withdrawn! would \K followed by civil war in Greece. Civil war, he continued, would be followed by Communism. Hc predicted the spread of unrest to Turkey ami said that if his prediction proved to be accurate, Communism undoubtedly would sweep Asia. In the Wcr.t hc foresaw a Communist bulge In Italy and probably in France If Greece were abandoned to thc So- vlcl Union.
