And now Trud, the organ of Soviet trade unions, and the chief Chinese Communist spokesman at Nanking come out simultaneously with attacks on American involvement in China in strikingly similar terms. Both declare that Chiang Kai-shek has 57 American-equipped divisions, all engaged In the war against the Chinese Communists. Both say Chiang is using several hundred American-made warplanes (Chou En-lai, the Nanking spokesman, makes it an even thousand) against his Communist foes. The tenor of both declarations is (•-> emphasize the magnitude of Chiang's curernt military effort una lo insist mat it would have been impossible without American aid. There is enough truth in these statements to make them effective propaganda. It is true that large quanities of American weapons and other supplies have reached Chiang, both Defore and since the fall of Japan. American vessels carried tens of thousands of his troops to Manchuria and thereby facilitated his campaign against the Communist in that rich, strategic territory. But it is also true that the United States has worked mighiiy ana in spite of-great discouragements to end 'the Chinese civil war, and has brought heavy pressure on"" Chiang Kai-shek to convince .him of the. necessity of coming to terms with .the Commu- p'sts and admitting them. tp. a regime that.. would be truly rcpro- ot me Chinese people.

II was on Sept. 3, thc day afler Labor Day, that 'Lhe curtain went up on this unparalledled spectacle of the Magician's art — to show livestock pens, jammed the 'week before, empty except for a few dried- tip cows and >maciated pigi> Since then the act has been repeated daily to an utterly unap- precialive clientele, and Agriculture Dcparlmenl slatistics for September showed receipts at record lows. A minor feature of the performance, somewhat overlooked in the concentralion on the all - star shortage, is the facl lhat beof nows today, in a market controlled by price ceilings, are selling at higher prices than they were in the iree morkfts "f July and August. L. J. Wyatt, head of the local livestock branch of Ihc Agricullure Department, said good cows brought $H.OO-$15.50' late last August and 15.25-$17.25 now, while medium grades had advanced from $11.75-14.00 to $12.50-$15.25. Beef cows are a major part of the present small arrivals. Plow anyone could buy livestock al higher prices, and sell meal al lower prices, and slill make a profit, was an incidental item of bewilderment lo traders. AVith the second month of the performance starting, mist critics were predicling it would bo taken .off the boards. 'But they couldn't agree on when.

"I am charged by my host — your national commander — with breaking faith with the veteran because -I have sided with Congress in an effort to defend the rights of all veterans against the encroachments of a privileged few," he added. "Your national commander has elected to be spokesman for this minority group ct veterans whose incomes exceed the level beyond which Congress will no longer supplement their wages in training."

Byrnes declared today that' "the conflicl of view poinls among Ihe Allies" is serious bul he echoed a recent statement b^ Prime Minister Stalin that Ihcre is no immediate danger of war. ' Byrnes spoke at a luncheon of thc American club in Paris. "After every great war which has been won by thc combined efforts of many nations, there has scon, a conflict among thc Allies in the making of peace," Byrnes said in his prepared address. "It would be folly to deny the seriousness of thc conflict in viewpoints among Ihe Allies after Ihis war. "To ignore lhal con/lid or mini mize ils seriousness will nol solve Iho conflict nor help us along thc road to peace. "To exaggerate lhal conflict and ils seriousness, on Ihe other hand, only makes more difficull thc resolution of the conflict. "I concur mosl heartily in the view recently expressed by Generalissimo Stalin that there is no immediate danger of war. I hope that his statement will put an end to thc unwarranted charges that any nation or group of nations is seeking to encircle Ihe Soviet union or thai Ihe responsible leaders of Iho Soviet union so believes." He added the hope that Stalin's words would dispel ranted charges lhal "thc thc un war- United miles the orth of said. Slates, is seeking to use its posses s|on of Ihe atomic bomb as a threat of force against Ihe Soviet Union." However, Byrnes said. American foreign policy will continue to follow a strong lint. "Just because war is not now imminent, we must take the greatest care not to "lant .Ihe seeds of a future war. We must seek less to defend other actions in the eyes of those who agree with us, and more to flefent our actions in the eyes of those who do not agree with us.' The secretary declared he be- I'evcs thnt nobndv wants war today, bul he said decrying it is not enough. "The difficulty is that while no nation wants war, nations may pursue policies cr courses of action which lendi to war. Nalions mav seek political and economic advantages which they cannot oblain without war," Bvrnes declared. The major porlipn of his speech was devoted to his views on Ihe future control of Gcrmanv. He amplified in some respects his recent speech at Stullgurt and the 40-yguv ional military tribunal will be escorted lo thc British zone tonight tomorrow by American mililary icrfonnel, defense counsel said to- light. ,, All three will bo taken to Hamburg, from whence Schachl will jrocecd lo his home in Schleswig- rlolslein, counsel said. II could nol be learned-whether .he former German financier would be provided with escorl after lis arrival in Hamburg. Frilsche, former deputy propaganda minister, sent his wife to Kamburg yesterday, and expressed liope she would be there when he arrived, Anton Pfeiffer, chief denazifica- tion officer for Bavaria, announced he had been iuslructcd to givc the three a guarantee of safe conduct," protecting thorn from arrcsl by German denazification courts in the American zone. Defense counsel said Iho trio would leave al an unannounced lime and would follow a secret route, all in thc same automobile. Just what type of escort would be provided was not announced, The protection granted thc three from prosecution by courts in the American zone, Pfoiffcr .stressed, is temporary, covering only their departure from Ihe Nuernberg jail and Ihc zone. Pfeiffer said he gol his instructions from Big. Gen. Waller Muller, U. S. military governor of Bavaria, who in turn got them :'rom Ll. Gen. Lucius D. Clay, dcpuly military governor in Berlin. The Bavarian indicated lhal the instructions are being handed down to the Nuernberg Gorman police, who already had been armed with orders to arrest all three as soon as they left jail and bring them before the denazification court. Brig. Gen. Telford Taylor said loday thc acquillal of Schaeht had had such an adverse effect on Allied plans to try Nazi induslrialisls on warmaking charges that Justice Robert H. Jackson intends to outline thc problem,', to Prcsidnet Truman. "••;•.; Gen.

What is thc public service of a 'newspaper, beyond thc bare news word? Well, it is a condensed daily hislory of tho world, a chronicle of human activity and thought al -. home and abroad, activity thai is '.' important or interesting or amusing. II is a messenger and town crier, and much more than thai. For its hislory of a day's happenings is solid and tangible.

AP Foreign Affairs Analyst (Substituting for MacKenzie) The British and American governments arc divided over Pales- line as they have not been divided since thc war debt dcbalc of many years ago. Bul instead of a dircc\ collsion between individual interests, the new disagreement revolves around methods of arriving at a mutually-desired goal. Tho Brilish, accustomed .v: recent years to establishing a common front with the U. S. and then facing thc world, arc piqued thai President Truman should slop out alone in what has been considered a primarily British matter. But il rs hardly a silualion in which pique lingers long enough to really in- 'crtere with an inleniationaj. relationship. V,'i.,_'h(.'' thc president's sla 1 ' ment will have the adverse affect on Palesline negotiations which thc — - • • - - ' t.o British profess to fear remains l.i ( 3C soon. The water already is S' boiled that the tossing of another pebble would hardly seem likely to produce any great splash. U .might, on the other hand, point up to the principal disputants Ihc need for some agreement, if only an interi ime, to alleviate the distress ol Europe's Jews, moving as arc, hungry and tattered through the undergrounds toward Palestine the only star they can see. To oversimplify, the Jews wan to make a Jewish state out of Pal estine, The Arabs, far in the ma jorily want to create a dcmocrutit. state with guarantees of Jewish mi nority rights. The British want U get out of the middle into whiel they stepped after World War 1 but not at the expense of their military pusiliwi in the Lcvuul. 1 President Truman anparcully puls I the plight ot Europe's'Jews, against 1 whose immigration into Palesline lhc Arabs arc adamant, ahead of all the rest. Thai a premancnl solution will be found quickly seems doubtful. But the United Slates proposal of economic aid for the area in connection with increased Jewish immigration may conlain Iho germ of a possible long range solulion. President Roosevelt, after his rips to Africa and thc Middle East, vas greatly impressed by the pos- ibililies of developing 'ihc area, le thought lhat irrigation, wilh levelopment of latural resources, could change the entire political and economic face of this ancient irt of the world. Now, in connection with the vari- 3iis proposals for dividing the Jews and Arabs, il musl be re- nembcred that Palestine is the nelropolitan area, the business center, thc built-up section of a ,'rcal area inhabited mostly by \rabs. This development, it is .rue, has been due to the Jews under British supervision and support. But it is understandable that thc Arabs should not wish to move out, nor yet remain under eithei minority or alien control. With some expansion of the ide:. of ccouomic aid, looking towan development of an area :"or the .\rabs which would compare will Palestine .. in desirability, Ihej "night be induced to yield sufficien room for thc Jews.

Twice-Governor of Pennsylvania Succumbs New York, Oct. 5 — (/P)— Gifford Pinchot, 81, twice governor of Pennsylvania and an expert on forestry, died last night in Column bia Presbyterian Medical Center here. Pinchot, ill for some time, had been in Ihe hospilal for a week. His wife \vas with him when he died at 10:30 p. m. (EST). Pinchot gained national prominence as a supporter of President Theodore Roosevelt's conservation program. He was chief of the Federal Department of Conservation ment by publishing thc, etateniep't against Attlee's wishes. ji , V*i 2. A belief, 'often expressed'" in author-tative British quarters,-that Truman's 100,000 figure'for immediate Jewish immigration tends'to ('« become an absolute minimum Jew- ' ish: demand. British sources have suggested ,/ that, had Truman set no figure, the , Jewish agency might have accept- ( ed a lower .quota. According to. 1 this theory, Trti- "^ man's request .-has given the >; agency added 'courage -to- fight, for ,'"i goals which -meet greater resist- - , ancc from the Arabs. -This possibly was-what Britain meant when, she -'->< said '"Truman's statement may well jeopardize- current negotiations for settlement. : Fear has been voiced" by both the conservative press and .by some government sources that Truman's statement might, stir both Arabs and,Jews to violence,, complicating the already difficult problem of maintaining order in Palestine. undo r Roosevelt Tatl.
