BURTON HEATH The Boat Has Sailed The American economy, industrial and financial, has missed the icconvcrsation boat, No ever had so wonderful an people oppor tunity to pull themselves up by tocir own bootstraps. But more '.Tian a year has passed since the fighlina slopped, and loday we're in worse straits.than at the height of war production. Theoretically it is possible now to buy an automobile, a tire, a refrigerator, a range, a suit of clolhcs, a shirt, some underwear. A few such items appear on sale here and there, and mosl of us know some thc three German minister presidents of the U. S. '/.one no official Russian representatives were present although three Soviet newsmen and a handful of other Russians were scattered through the audience. Byrnes called for establishment __ a German national council to run the Reich under Allied.control and to prepare a constitution :"or what he called in his prepared text a permanent, federal i/.cd "United States of Germany." In delivering the speech he omitted the words "Unilccl States" and merely _. _. spoke of a fedcralizcd Germany. lulion for the United Stales of Gcr-1 The British were represented at many' which should insure democ I the ceremony by Sir William eventual need of "a federal consti body who has been able to buy ono of them at a price. Bui meanwhile wear and tear has gone on. Our prewar slock- «ilcs of consumer goods, held to Aether with pins and baling wire during ihe-war, now is falling com-, plctcly to pieces. The meager sup ply of new goods is far from enough lo replace depreciation. As a people our usable cars arc fewer and more decrepit, our tires thinner and smoother, our refrigerators and ranges and fans and radios more crotchcly and less dc pcndablc than in 1943 or 1944 or 1045. Though we have tried paying $3.95 for $1 shirts and $4.50 for J25 suits, we arc gelling where we a.rc ashamed to display our wardrobes in public. For some, wages have gone up. For a few, salaries have risen a liltlc. For all, living costs have sky-rocketed. We remain somewhat solvent because wo have been liv ing off our financial fal—spending, on inflated prices, what we saved to pay for capital goods that haven't reached the market place. Hundreds of thousands are without decent homes, and the best we can provide for them are converted barracks, trailers, Quonsel huts, .or ovci priced houses buill from 1 lumber so knotty, so light, so poorly finished, so green that it shouldn't be used lor pig pens in a .,_ reconversion with everything. We had a surficl of plant, capacity, an all-time high of relatively skilled labor, the would's greatest collection ot production know-how, an almost umbelicvablc reservoir of fluid savings with which lo buy, and a soul consuming desire for everything from racy and the basic freedoms. American officials have talked in general terms for months of the possibility of a fcdcralized Germany, but none has ever put the idea into words which suggeslcd so strongly the American type of federal union. Molotov strongly opposed the federal plan. He said it would clis member Germany and was favored only by Allied authorities in the western occupation zones, not Ihe German people. Byrnes wenl into far greater de tail than Molotov in his proposals both for the political and cconom ic reconstruction of Germany and his efforts to persuade Ihe German people lhat Ihe Unilcd Slalcs intends to treat them justly and fairly within the lerms of Ihc Polsdam Big Three agreement. Bui although the speech was primarily for German consumption, many parts of'il were aimed simultaneously al Russia. Some were direcled also al Franco and -Poland. One scclion certain to cause sur prise in some foreign capilals was that dealing with Germany's eastern border. Byrnes made it plain the Unilcd Slalcs might oppose Poland's permanent claims to Ihe former German territory il now holds provisionally under the Pots- Russia may already have an Maurice Couvc de Muryillc, Ihc atom bomb of its own, or if not, French delegate, said his nation soon w jrj- have, declares Dr. • would "insist on a free territory as s; mon Alexandrov, above, So- 'Ihe core of Ihc whole silualion. McNeil warned flatly lhat "we'V honor our bargain but if the slatulc is so changed as lo impair the conception of a free territory we will have lo reconsider our whole agreement." This was the firsl notice lhat'any of the Four-Power Foreign Ministers council might not sland by their accords hammered out in 11 months of negotiations. Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov has insisted again and Strang ot the foreign office. Germans in the audience appeared n high spirits after hearing 3yrncs. They applauded the Amer- can sccrelary who waved his hand 'to them and smiled. Byrnes made the Irip from Berlin in what used lo be, Adolf Hiller's private sleeping car. 'Before speaking he received the three German minister presidents aboard the train and served them coffee in cups marked with the German imperial eagle. Byrnes told his audience that the United Stales does nol "want Germany to become a satellite of nny power or powers, or to live under a dictatorship, foreign or domestic." He said the United States had again throughout Ihc peace conference that no intention of withdrawing from F OUI ." agreement on Germany and would remain there !jj a contained -a "mini dam agreement. Poland has served notice il re gards lhal territory as permanent compensation for the area il ceded lo Russia in the east. If France had any hope ot American support for its plan to dc as long as necessary, Byrnes underlined the significance of his basic American ppljcy pronouncement by delivering il on German soil, in- a cily sludded. with ruins created by Allied' bombs. With the battles of the Paris neace conference fresh in his mind, Byrnes staled almosl at the opening: "It is not in Ihc interest of the German people or in Ihc interest of world peace that Germany should become a pawn in a mill five-week the four powers resist unanimously any al- tcmpl to change agreed sections of the treaty drafts and the council reaffirmed Ihis solidarity again last week.

A spokesman for thc independent three-man board said the mcm- oer$ are about agreed and may announce procedures within a week or 10 days. Chairman Roy L.

Marshall Steps Up Peace Moves BetweenChinese Nanking, Sept. G —(/P) — General Marshall flew to a conference with Chiang Kai-Shek and Communist Gen. Chou En-Lai sent an urgent dispatch to party ^itacquavlcrs at | Yenan today in stepped up truce moves. Chou requested instructions' regarding a proposal by Marshall, U. S. special envoy, and U. S. Ambassador Stuart to make every effort to effect a military settlement if the Communists, would agree to serve immediately upon a slate council committee. Marshall spca to Kuiing, where his plane must land on a soggy airfield, to lay the Communists position before Chiang and atto_mp to draw "something definite" frorr him on the government's -altiludi toward a naUoii-widc cease. - firi agreement. Both actions followed a half hour meeting of Stuart and Marshall with Chou, the third American-Communist talk in three days. Chou Summed up the American views and submitted the document for approval, then radioed the pa- ?cr to Yenan for consideration by Lhc Communists' political bureau,. The document emphasized the need to bring about an agreement Maritime Stri Freezing U.S. Coastal Ports By the Associated Press ,®— The greatest maritime strike in history spread through the nation's coastal ports today, freezing the x>rt of New York, the country's Dusicst harbor into "complete paralysis," the U. S. Maritime commission announced. The commission's statement came about three hours after the striking AFL Seafarers Internam- tional union and the Sailors Union of the Pacific established picket lines along the extensive waterfront. The commission listed 344 vessels of all nations tie.'l xip in '.New- York by the strike. This varied with a union claim that 534 craft of all types were stranded in New York and 2,534 on three coasts. A commission survey said 750 ships of all Ila>;s were immobilized in ports from Portland, Me., to Savannah, Ga. Of these, the commission said 548 were American and 157 were of foreign registry. Spokesmen lor the striking AFL Seafarers International union and the Sailors Union of the Pacifc in New York said 534 ships were tied on at least the fundamental issue of establishment of an all - party his personal slate council. Chou interposed misgivings and general unwillingness to participate in any political discusions until the Generalissimo makes it perfectly plain at what stage of the committee's deliberations it can expect a national laying-down of arms.
