August 3, 1945 THE PADUCAH SUN-DEMOCRAT PAGE FIVE Winant, Dunn, Cohen Mentioned For Council Post A Newsletter From Home For Our Fighting Men LONDON, Aug. 4 ) The names of U. S. Ambassador John G. Winant, Assistant Secretary of State James Clement Dunn and Benjamin V. Cohen, special assistant to Secretary of States James P. Byrnes, were advanced in American diplomatic circles tonight as the leading choices for U. S. deputy on the Big Five council of foreign ministers. There was speculation that Winant would be succeeded as ambassador to Britain by White House Advisor Joseph E. Davies, now homeward bound from Potsdam, within a few weeks. Davies told friends Just before his departure that he would be returning soon, but he did not say in what role. Reports that Winant would be relieved soon of his assignment were strengthened by the fact he was not among those invited to Potsdam, and that the European advisory commission, on which he was American representative, has been eliminated after drafting recommendations for occupation and control of enemy countries. Dunn and Cohen were with Truman and Byrnes at Potsdam, and their presence was interpreted by some American diplomatic sources as giving them the inside track for the post on the important foreign ministers council. Some gave the edge to Cohen over Dunn, since the former worked as special assistant to Byrnes, who will name the deputy. Byrnes is exDected to name the deputy when he returns to Washington. The first meeting of the council will be held In London, which will be the normal seat, not later than Sept. 1 Biggest task facing the council's opening session will be the draft- ine of rjeace treaties wnn ltaiy, Romania. Bulgaria, Hungary and Finland. Meanwhile Assistant Secretary of State William Clayton was engaR' lng in conversation with Britain's economic officials. It was reliably reported that one of Clayton's as slgnments was to measure the lnr pact of Labor's sweeping election victory on British economic policy and to learn the plans and time table for its socialization program. It Clayton succeeds In obtaining' assurance that the United States and Great Britain will see eye-to-eye on postwar trade policy, an international conference may be called before the end of the year to discuss world-wide aspects of the problem. The chief objective would be to eliminate cut-throat fights for markets. Red Cross Seeks Extra Workers The recruitment campaign of the American Red Cross is not producing the workers needed to carry forward its program, according to the McCracken county Red Cross Chapter. The following telegram was received Saturday by W. F. McMurry, chairman of the McCracken county recruitment committee, from Harold E. Buchanan, director of the Red Cross personnel service division: "In addition to urgent needs women for professional social worker and recreational worker positions in hospitals this area, we have urgent need August for following overseas personnel men, ages 30 to 50, as assistant field directors and program directors, women as staff assistants; also acute need for men domestic assistant field direc tors. Will appreciate your Intensified efforts to Interest applicants." Persons interested in this and other positions are invited to visit the Red Cross office in the Guthrie building. Rommel Committed Suicide, Son Says BAD TOLZ, Germany, Aug. 4 (IP) A son of Field Mar shal Erwin Rommel declared in a sworn statement today that his father committed suicide as an alternative to a death sen tence passed by a people's court "because he was suspected of com' plicity in the July 20, 1944, bomb plot on Hitler's life." The statement, released by U. S. Third Army headquarters, was made by Manfred Rommel, 17-year-old son of the German "Desert Fox." (Allied offices at Wiesbaden said on June 25 that they had been told by Lt. Gen. Fritz Bayerlein, Rommel's former chief of staff, that the field marshal had committed suicide in order to avoid the death penalty for allegedly participating in the plot on Hitler's life. The Germans announced -Oct. 15, 1944, that Rommel had "died of wounds." Young Rommel confirmed that his father was wounded on July 17, 1944, at Llvarot, France during an American air raid, but said he was recovering after treatment in a Paris hospital for a skull fracture and shell splinters in his face.

Paducah Militia Unit Leaves Today For Camp Breckinridge CAMP GORDON JOHNSTON, Fla., Aug. 4 U.R) Army Intelligence officers today sought to uncover facts behind the appearance in the Gulf of Mexico of a German submarine raft, well stocked with emergency rations including a bottle of schnapps. Officials revealed that the raft was sighted on Sunday by an Army boat returning from a fishing cruise. The raft itself began to fall apart as it was towed to land, but its cargo was brought here. It was believed the raft had been afloat only for about six weeks. Inspection dates indicated that most of the material recovered had been in Germany as late as Dec. 28, 1944. (The Coast Guard "revealed this week that no German submarines had been reported in Florida waters since July, 1943.) A possibility was advanced that the raft had been ashore and was subsequently carried back to sea by recent high tides. The raft was supplied with signal equipment, a distress flag, con centrated food, tobacco, fishing gear, a fatigue-eliminating drug and the bottle of schnapps.
