JTHUHSDAY, JJKUKMBiiiK 8, 1949 THE NATION TODAY— Western Powers Still Planning Effort to Work Out Details of Treaty With the German People By James Mitrlow Sl-.ten - btate^ Britain.

And that-emting the war but not* _ _ __ signing a peace treaty right away —is one of the problems the allies face in ending the war. Ixjgnl specialists of the tliree powers will meet next year to work out the problems, if they tnn. D rii« may explain some of it. Germany now is divided into two >nain parts: Eastern Germany, under Russia's thumb; Western Ger- many, dominated by the three allies. In liieir section tlie Russians have set up a German government. And in their Western section the three Allies have set up a German government. SlniK^Ie Continues Since the west and Russia are struggle over Germany, there McMath Feted During Visit In New York NEW YORK, Dec. 8. (AP)_Gov ernor MAlalh of Arkansas contin ued a N-hirlivmd visit of New Vor today. He appeared with another Arkan san on Arthur Godfrey's radio stun this morning. Godfrey's singer is Jeanette Davis, formerly of Pin Bluff. McMa —...,.,.i, u, L , ^.Ln..n»jr, HILH. *vn,,viuth yesterday .had apixiint « no likelihood that, any time soon ments with Miss Dorothy Shavei there'll be a single German government with which a peace treaty can be made, covering all Germany. But -the West has permitted, and Helped, the setting up of that government in Western Germany, Ls dealing with it although retaining final control over it, and is even letting it have consuls abroal. Nevertheless, the West is stll\ in a state of war with tile German government it has helped create. 'I'liis puts the West In a strangle position and is one of tlie reasons it's seeking a way to »nd fhe war. But since the West looks upon Russia as a threat to all Europe and Russia Ints troops in Eastern Germany, should the West try to keep troops in We-stern Germany as an outpost against a Russian move? The has to think of it. But how can the West, which now controls Western Germany, justify keeping troops there if it declares v mlie war with Germany ended? •"^That's another of the problems in declaring the war ended. Must Be Agreement Here's another: The West lias dismantled and even shipped out of Germany a number of plants which it took as reparations, or payment, for the damage done by Germany In the war. If the West and Germany made a peace treaty it would certainly cover dismantling and reparations ami v.'ho owed whom what. Thcre'd be agreement on that before the treaty was signed. But the allies may continue the dismantling program for some tnonths. How then can the war with Germany be ended unless there's an cnd to dismantling? And what will the German government, after war, have to'say about the dis- itling already done? ., In short, how can there be any legal justification for Die dismantling unless it is justified—by agreement—In a treaty that is not now being talked of? president of Lord nncl Taylor's de partment store and a native o Mcna, Ark., and singing star, Mar Martin, who plays the role of nurse from Arkansas in curren musical show.
