He said the nation s grain supplies must still be managed with care. The department said that as it now sees the grain picturt, no further increases in allocations of grains for the brewing and distilling industries are expected during the next three months. Pointing out that a return to the 72 percent wheat flour extraction rat* will make larger quantities of mill feeds available to livestock feeders, the department announced that it will place further restriction* on the use of milHng-quality wheat by feed manufacturer*. Effective Oct. 1, feed manufacturers will not be permitted to use anv wheat of milling quality in mixed feeds except in the western states where the quantity of milling wheat which can be fed will be limited to ■ 40 percent of the total grains used. These states include California. Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington, and that part of Montana which Is on or south of the main line of the Chicago.

The first, which wa* not read, presumably would have added Albania to the list of treaty signers, and hence victors. The second would have pinned '‘full”—instead of a “share’’—of responsibility on Italy for her entry into the war. / The U. S. led opposition to the first Yugoslav amendment which would have also inserted in the preamble a reference to Italy’s occupation and annexation of Allied territory. Thus, the peace conference accomplished Its first actual work on a draft peace document after nearly four weeks by adopting, as amended, the first part of the preamble to the Italian treaty. China offered the amendment to the preamble's third paragraph, in the name of Belgium, Brazil, Canada and the Netherlands, to pay tribute to Italian partisans. This drew immediate support from the U. S., France and Yugoslavia. ________ The committee unanimously adopted the Chinese amendment and adjourned. Meat Packing Industry Faces Threat of Strike CHICAGO, Aug. 23 (Jf) — The nation's meat packing industry was faced today with the threat of a possible new strike tieup. The CIO United Packinghouse Workers of America filed 30-day strike notices against the nation’s major and most of the smaller independents having contracts with the union. The filing of strike notices does not “necessarily indicate” a strike will occur, said Ralph Helstein, union president, but he added: “If, in the negotiations, however, it should develop that the packers are unwilling to give the consideration which the union’s proposals deserve, our membership will have no other recourse than to resort to strike action.” NO SURVIVORS - --------(Con t In »ed-from-Fage- TRANSPORT PILOT - (Continued from Pag* One) He declared that while he stood by with a fire extinguisher his copilot, Lt. Bill L. McNew, Atlanta, Oa , gave first aid to the bleeding Turk. Everyone else scattered in the field, fearing they would be strafed, Crombie said. Two hours later a party of Yugoslav officers and soldiers arrived, and Crombie and the others were taken to Ljubljana for internment. The Turk was placed in a hospital. Crombie, the three members of his crew, two military and three civilian passengers were released yesterday by Yugoslavia, as demanded in an ultimatum sent to Marshal Tito by the U. S. Government. The wounded Turk remained. The nine were transported last night in an tlNRRA truck to an 88th division outpost just west of Gorizia in occupied Venezia-Giulia, then were taken to division headquarters for food and coffee. The interview writh Crombie was granted on the stipulation of the security officer that it be conducted so as not to prejudice future handling of the U. S. diplomatic case against Yugoslavia. Crombie said that when a first fighter appeared, “I thought it was a British ship-ftnd I said-‘hello* on the interphone, but there was no answer. “I continued southeast and I *aw two other fighters. From their markings I recognised them as Yugoslav fighters. Then I knew I was over Yugoslav territory. '•Everything happened then. “The fighter planes flew around us a couple of times. They kept diving at us and pulling away. “I circled a town which I later found out was Ljubljana—which I thought might be Udine and at 14.000 feet I let down. "That was W'hen I saw the first burst of machinegun fire, although others in the plane said there had been an earlier one. “There was no damage to the ship, but that was when the Turkish captain was hit.” Crombie said he , directed the copilot to put parachutes on the passengers, but when the Yugoslavs dived again he decided to get down as rapidly as he could. “I picked a little cornfield about 15 miles northwest of Ljubljana and crash landed with the wheels up,” he said. “Everybody lay on the floor and nobody was hurt although the plane was badly wrecked. “After about two hours some Yugoslav officers and soldiers came and asked us why Man Kills Girl Friend, Then Swallows Poison BUFFALO. N. Y., Aug. 23 (JP) — A man stabbed to death a pretty young woman and then committed suicide by swallowing poison today before about 100 horrified witnesses in a downtown office, Assistant Detective Chief William J. Tedesco said. Tedesco identified the woman as Angela Falcone. 21, and the man as Robert E. Donnelly, 47. and said they had been “going together," He added that Miss Falcone had been stabbed several times with an eight-inch long breadknife, but said no motive for the slaying had been discovered, Tedesco said Miss Falcone had gone to the office to apply for unemployment insurance and that Donnelly apparently had followed her there.

He said that five days before the party was ‘‘liberated’’ they were permitted to talk to an American representative who came from Belgrade. They were assigned a Yugoslav captain as liaison man who “treated us so well that before we left we bought him a silver cigaret case.” The group was limited to their billet in the hotel, but allowed to circulate as far as the terrace after two or three days.
