H. SHACKFORD Paris, Sept. 13 —CUP)—Australia's Col. William R. Hodgson today injected a bitter attack on tho "arbitrary, irresponsible, dictatorial" use of the veto by big powers in the United Nations Secruity Council inlo peace conference discussion of Ihe Trieste problem. Hodgson charged that use of the veto by the big powers had dis- crediled .Ihe security council "that is the body, in disrepute in the eyes of the world, lo'which the Big Four would turn over responsibility for the free territory of Trieste. "The big power plans would give resuonsibility for the Trieste shi- i parties repeatedly have asked "U.S. embassy sponsorship of a "pro- American party, explaining that "there are pro-Russian and pro- British parties but Ihe majority of people like Americans." They go away "puzzled and disappointed,' an embassy official said, "after learning thai the American government docs not sponsor political parties abroad. They arc told that we would prefer a truly pro-Iranian party.' The Iranian government, generally believed to be strongly influenced by Russia, retains American technicians in high places despite editorial criticism from tho left- wing press. An American doctor directs the public hcallh program. U. S. Army missions train the nalional police and advise the army. An American grain expert directs the government whoit and bread monopol. "America has all the Ihings we want for Iran,' said a Tudeh party leader, "schools, hospitals, good living conditions and security for the working man, but .Russia is helping us lo gain those things. Naturally, we've turned to Russia." . But the average man in the street has no political or financial irons in Ihe fire. He says he likes Americans because Ihey are "gen- eious, friendly and honest." He frankly distrusts the British: "They're responsible ;ior all tho Irouble in Iran for a hundred years." • He fears the Russians: "They've always wanted Iran and -Lhe Persian gulf. Someday they arc coming in and Ihey are nol going to leave." diclalc; and Dave Whillinglon, their altorncy lefl for Lillle Rock after 41 rally here last night in which the veterans ; promised to clean up gambling In the county if elected. < The trio was lo seek a conference with Gov.

Hodgson opened general debate on Ihe proposed statute of Trieste in Ihe Italian polilical commission.

Molotov, Soviet foreign minister, made his first appearance at a commission meoling since his rclurn from Moscovi- when Ihe Ilalian polilical commission began a general debate on Triesle. The Czech Spokesman, Dr. Ivan Horvalh, threw his support behind Yugoslav efforts to win a governing statule in Ihe Triesle zone which would give Yugoslavia almost cpmplele control of the controversial area. Britain and the United Stales want Ihe zone under close direction of the Uniled Nations Security council. "There will be no lasting solu- ;ion of Ihis thorny problem 'ihal does not respect the will of the people of Trieste or the inlcrosts of its hinterland, which is Yugoslavia," Horvath said.

Addressing the Italian political commission, Connally told his colleagues that thoy faced the task of preserving tho peace of the world and said sharply that "wo arc nnt hero to settle "real cstale problems." Tho challenge of peace is here— on our doorslep—on our lable — on Hie table of Iho chairman of Ihis commission,' 'he said. Connally did nol, as had boon anlicipalcd, reply directly to the questions raised by Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov concerning Anglo-American policy on Trieste".

Manned by veterans, the store offered huge slons of kitchenware, tablcclolhes, silverware bedspreads and olher items in groat demand but scarce supply.

The store, set up in the hupe consolidated Vultce plant hangar, was ballyhoood extensively over the air and through full-page newspaper advcrlisements last week.

PRICE 5c COPY Fresh Meat Has Disappeared Throughout U. S. By the Associated Press Fresh meat virtually disappeared from markets throughout tho nation today and in some lo- ens discouraged housewives had trouble buying even luncheon meats lo bolster their vegetable menus. Fish and poultry were the piece dc resistance on many tables, and some poultry dealers warned that because of the rush their chicken supply would be gone in about two weeks. Packers reported 'hoy could obtain only a fraction of the animals they normally purchase for slaughter, and most butchers were pessimistic over the possibility of an early improvement in the situation. In St. Louis ,a few retail meat markets were closed. Others were selling mostly meat substitutes. Poultry brought 30 cents a pound and. up, dressed; cheese was at a record high of 44 1-2 cents a pound for standard twins, and eggs sold al 44 to 4G cents a dozen wholesale, the highest price there since 1920. St. Louis's national slock yards, which normally was lighl receipts on Saturday, had none at all thai day for Ihc firsl time in its history. Milwaukee reported most markets had no meat, but that small quanililios of poultry slill were available if ordered early. The Milwaukee livestock market reported its lowest receipts in years, with a total of 350 animals received Friday compared with a normal flow of about 5,000 daily. Hospitals in Pittsburgh were running out of meat, and doctors worried about the health of Patients suffering from metabolic" disor- ders,sucn as diabeles, who would be seriously affeclod by lack of meal. Virlually no meal was ob- lainable in Ihe city, and poultry dealers said their supply of chicken would be gone in about two weeks because ol heavy demand. A fow New England restaurants with large storage facilities still hal a litlle meat on hand, bul housewives were gelling by on chicken and fish. In New York City, bulcher shops' shelves were virlually bare, and 5,000 Kosher butchers were closed for lack of supplies. At Buffalo, Harry Brocas, secretary of the Relail Meat ..Dealers' Association, said there had been a "slight increase" in catlle re- ceipls, but otherwise little change was reported. Newark meat supply houses were getting no meat and lid not expect any this week. Jn Baltimore, a survey showed housewives paid one-third more for meal Salurday than a year ago, and today there was scarcely any to be had al any price. A Louisville grocery reported it had a lit- lle luncheon meal, bul all olhcrs in Ihe cily reported no meat of any kind. Armour & Company took half page advertisements in Chicago newspapers to explain "without livestock—no .meat — no employment" The ads said Armour's Chicago plant over a six-year period had averaged 59,000 head of animals processed weekly at this time of year, and that in the first week in September it had been able to obtain only 9,431 head.

Washington, Sept. 1C—-(/P)—Secre- tary of Commerce Wallace today reaffirmed his 'sland for the softer U.

Guamanians Resent Book by Tweed By DOUG LOVELACE Guam, Sepl. 16 —(/P)— A group of 100 Guamanians, led by a Catholic priest, dcmonslrnlcd with boocs and placards today against Navy Lt. George Ray Tweed, the man who eluded the Japanese during their 31-monlh wartime occupation of Guam. They expressed resentment at — -- —.( <~'-£".^.JUI_VA A^iawilHilViHl, ilL Tweed's assertion in his recent book thai Guam priest, a Father Ducnas, had disclosed a confessional "secret as to where Tweed hiding. Word eventually d tho Japanese, and Tweed escaped capture by a narrow margin, he wrote. Tweed returned with a new automobile as a gift lor a Guaman- lan friend he crcdilcd wilh helping save his life during a precarious exislence dodging incessant Japanese pursuers during the war. As the presentation ceremony opened a crowd of 100 Guaman- ians marched into tho plaza muttering angrily and bearing signs of protest. .Among the inscriptions were ' .

They reported he . If so, a showdown is in the making over the current "tough' policy of Secretary of State Byrnes. No one in cither the Wallace camp or at the Stale Department appears to consider that Mr. Truman's statement on Saturday de- solved the basic policy differences between the two cabinet officers. In that declaration, which he read to reporters himself, the chief executive made four main points: 1. His approval of Wallace's speech at a news conference last Thursday actually was intended to cover only Wallace's right to make the speech, not what he said. 2. The belief that he had endorsed the speech was a "natural misunderstanding" due to the fact ...^.j ou.u. j-ntjr i i^jjui iuu iiu •iiusuriuersvanciing auc to tnc lad would see Uie president probably Ihal he had nol said what he in- tomorrow, • but by Wednesday at tended to say tn , e ,. 11a . tcst ,- . . , . , 3.

Feeling as I do however, that most Americans are concerned about, and willing to work for, peace, I intend to continue my efforts for a just and lasting peace and I shall, within tho near future, speak on this subject again." Aides at the Commerce Department told reporters before the statement was issued that Wallace had talked by telephone with the White House and probably would sec Mr. Truman sometime tomor- .Tweed, of San Diego, Calif., stroke toward the marchers and snalchcd a sign reading "What about Tweed's desertion in the face of tho enemy?" and tore it into shreds, stamping it under foot. i The demonstrators booed loudly when Tweed approached the microphone to speak, but presently marched out of the park in a body, leaving only a few Guamanians to hfcar,_the American. 'Tweed presented a 1946 Chevrolet to Antonio Artero, the man who showed him a hiding place in the hilly back-country of Guam and brought him food once weekly 10131 months. Tweed said he was sincerely grateful to the mani- Gua- manians who aided him and regretted ho could not give each one a new car. Catholic Father Oscar Calvo, explaining the demonstration ho led, said Tweed in his book "Robinson Crusoe, USN" had accused Father Ducnas, another Guam priest, of "betraying the secret of the confessional." Tweed related in his book that one of his benefactors confessed to Father Ducnas where Tweed was hiding and the priest told many Guamanians. Eventually word reached the Japanese, who tortured the priest until, he told. But word reached Tweed in time for him to escape. Right of Henry Wallace to Speak Out Against U. S.

By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst British officialdom heaved a mighty sight of relief on learning thai Secrolary of Commerce Wallace's foreign affairs pronounce- menl — which was widely interpreted in England as "anti-British" and "dangerously pro-Russian"—didn't represent a change in American foreign policy. Downing strecl was "very pleased", to use the phrase of a foreign office spokesman, al President Truman's stalcmcnl that ho didn'l endorse Wallace's speech bul ralher the right to make it. The spokesman might have added with equal truth thai ihe nverage Briton—or lhe average European, for that matter—would be vastly astonished thai a cabinel minisler should have such freedom of unilateral action. In Britain—and in mosl, if nol all, European countries—a stalc- mcnt by one member of cabinet is binding on the whole cabinet, from tho prime minister down. For this reason no member of cabinet ever makes a statement which might oven remotely affect government policy without having discussed it with the premier and his colleagues. If approval is given, then the entire cabinet stands back of it. If the prime minister disapproves, then then slalement cannot bo made—or if by any chance it wore made, then lhe minisler who had violated lhe code would be i'orccd to resign and his statement would forthwith be disavowed by the government. There's no such thins as a prime minisler emulating Vol- laiio and lolling one of his cabinol: "1 disapprove of. what you say, bul 1 will defend to the death your i-iglil to ,;ay il." At any rate, no premier would s.i> thai in relation to a mailer of government policy. Apart from Ihsii rcslnction Iho cabinet min- is-tor can say what he "jolly well' In Britain this cabinel tiadiiion is followed .so clohely thai cabinet minister won't give an 'interview "un llic record regarding $ monl affairs unless tlic mailer is submitted to the cabinel .for approval. 1 have cncounlorod that many times during my reporting abroad." Prime minislers of course can speak for Ihemsclvcs if they want lo, bccausc us heads of government they are responsible for policies. However, I have had a premier say to mo afler he had given me a slalomonl: "I should like to discuss this with my colleagues before publica- lion." So far as Iho ordinary member of cabinet is concerned, if he docsnl agree wilh the policies of the prime minister—or at. least if he doesn't back them up—then he musl resign. If tho policies '.if iho prime minister and his cabinet advisers go wrong, ihen Parliament kicks them out of office forthwith and a new ministry is :-"onncd. They said Wallace would have nothing further to say about his New York speech today. At the State Department officials said they hoped Wallace would decide against making any more speeches on foreign policy unless ho first clears them with state. Information as to his actual course was lacking there, however. At the Commerce Department Wallace aides said Wallace had no immediate comment on the reaction to his speech—including President Truman's repudiation of his approval of it. They said Wallace might issue ,a statement later in the day. There was some talk, too, thai he might try to see the president and clear up the situation resulting from Mr. Truman's saying that while he had not approved what Wallace said, he did approve his right to say it. The White Rouse disclosed Undersecretary -of State--' Clayton, spearheading the state department's counter-moves to Wallace's attack on Byrnes policies, would see Mr. Truman at 12:30 p. m. (EST.i, but did not divulge the purpose of the visit. Charles G. Ross, White House secretary, said he did nol know why Clayton was calling. Every sign pointed today to a red hot dispute between Wallace and the Slate Department over future foreign policy speeches by the secretary of commerce. Whether a full-scale cabinet crisis would develop rcmainqd to be seen. It appeared to hinge on whether President Truman's staled ap- nroval of Wallace's right to deliver his New York speech last . While Republicans assailed the ' " tioned the widsom of letting Wallace criticize administration foreign policy, Democrats generally hailed Mr. Truman's explanation and expressed hope the incident would be considered cleared up. The atlilude of Slate Depatmcnt officials appeared to be that they, too, hoped the row would die down but thai they were by no means confident of il. Some disappoinlment was expressed privately that the president had not taken a stronger stand for Byrnes and against Wallace. Some friends of Wallace, on the other hand, were visibly cheered both by Mr. Truman's approval of the secretary's right to make the speech and the fact that he placed no blame for the incident on Wallace. There was good reason to believe that Wallace, on the whole, found the president's handling of Ihe case most satisfactory. His main objective, it was learned, is to challenge openly what he considers obejctionable points, of Byrnes' policy and to do so, • if possible, as a member of the cdbi- net. He has had tbis project in mind for months, according to persons familiar with his views, and they say they see no reason why he should give up the idea just when it is well started. , J ... At least some State Department officials -have considered the*'sdme- probability, and there was speculation that the department might recommend to Mr. Truman either thai he tell Wallace not to make any more speeches directly or indirectly critical of Byrnes policies or else that he require State De- parlmenl clearance of all government foreign policy speeches in the future. Pending decisions on this 'and possibly other issues yet to come up, Wallace's position in the cabinet seemed likely to be a subject of White House review on at least two counts: 1. If Wallace remains in the cabinet it might be interpreted abroad as a kind of presidential approval of his foreign policy proposals. 2.

Tokyo, Sept. 16 (/I';.—Documentary evidence that Japan hoped to persuade her traditional enemy, Russia, to join wilh Germany in a triparlilc pad to conquer the world will bo introduced soon al the international war crimes trial, iau- thorilalivc sources disclosed today. Tho evidence will not go so i'ar as the late Prince Fumimaro Kon- oyo's dcclaralion thai Itussia had approved such a plan "in principle." But. informants said il will .show thai Japan actively planned such a deal to protect her northern flank for the thrust into the rich territories of Soulhwcsl Asia. This parl ol the strange story of double-dealing and intrigue surrounding Iho tripartite will be presented as lhe next phase of tho Premier Hideki Tojo and 20 olher accused warmongers. Deputy Proscculor Frank S. Tavenner Jr., Woodstock, Va., may present the opening argument tomorrow or Wednesday. Russia was a constant shadow in the background while Japan was discussing the tripartite pact and in dealing with the Soviets, Germany double-crossed Japan twice, the documents will show. The first betrayal was ihe German-Soviet non-aggression pact of 1939 which produced a period of planning for admitting Russia 10 the spoils of war. The second was the Nazi attack on Russia'—against Japan's expressed desires—which ended Japanese dreams of buying off her northern :-ieiglibur.

Prduction of v lin plate and sheet steel was suspended at the Gary, ind., n ,m oi thc Carnegie- Illmois Steel Corp., idling some 7,500 workers, as a result of a dispute of salaried members of the CIO sleelworkers union. At Detroit, Chrysler'company officials said today's walkout was a continuance of a dispute over the layoff of 700 second-shift workers because of a steering wheel shortage. The Gary Sheet and Tin Mill was closed aflcr while-collar wor'k- ' ers scl up pickel lines around the plant in an apparent- protest against the consolidation"of- two / production-planning departments.

He said the union would not resume negotiations until west coast shipowners agreed to meet with the marine cooks and stewards union (CIO) and the independent marine firemen's union. Bolh unions are affilalod with, lhe NMU in the committee for manlimc unity, organization of six CIO unions and the one independent group. West coast shipowners maintain that ihcir contract with the two unions, who ask the same increases won by AFL seamen last week, docs nol provide for a reopening r lh° wage queslion at this time. I.he unions arc seeking parity with the AFL sailors union of the Pacific and the Seafarers International Union which gained wage boosts of $22.50 monthly on the west coast and $27.50 on the east coast. The NMU last June won a $17.50 monthly raise for its members. Curran made a bid for government intervention today when he sent a telegram to President Truman asking the president to instruct government agencies to 'force' 'a contract "which will embody the same pay increases already given to AFL Maritme Unions on the basis of the same pay for thc same work." 4 The paralysis of shipping slarted 11 .days ago when AFL Maritime Unions struck in protest against a War Stabilization Board ruling denying them the $22.50 and S27.50 monthly raises negotiated with operators.
