M. ROBERTS, JR. AP Foreign Affairs Analyst •The United States delegation to the Atomic Control Commission seems to bs in the position of the Irtan tvho-tried to give away a ^OlidT gold birck—nobody's going to f aft,for that lag. » The spectacle of a nation laying its* minimum instead of maximum demands on the conference table >aWlhe outset, seeking both to clarify the issues and avoid haggling, apparently has the negotiators stumped. : ^'Diplomats don't ordinarily do business that way. They can't be* lieve-that there isn't a bargaining point somewhere, and have spent; many weary weeks looking for it.' T0"them, it seems, it would have; been more "regular" for the; United States to have fixed a high,; even impossible, price on . her atomic secrets, and then begin bargaining. 'When Bernard Baruch presented the United States control plan • '';o the atomic commission it alrea'uy had the water squeezed out. Formulated in the light off more. information about than, is available . atomic • bombs to - any other country, it constituted the greatest concession the* administration felt it could make with regard for the nation's safety. Indeed*,- rnatiy people familiar with the possibili ; ties of atomic development ' f ear that safety may have been infringed upon But the search for bargaining points has not been diminished by Mr. Baruch's insistence that -the proposition before the world isi a rock-bottom one. " ; The Russians could hardly have expected that posal, for an their counter-pro- honor system," would be accepted in the light that history throws on 'national''.inter- pretations, of honor. The recent Mexican "question" as^to • whether dangerous alomic processes could be placed under central international supervision, with only "denatured" fuels going to individual nations for peaceful 'purposes, must ,also be considered merely an effort to see if there is a field for bargaining. The commission's scientific report a few days before on how production of atomic power works contained the answer to that .In working with fissionable material there is never any point at which it can be said that "this is where we split. On this hand is material which can be made into a bomb, on the other is material which cannot." A :"ixed corollary of working with fission able material for peaceful purposes is the by-production of plutonium. Old Shoes of U.S. Amy Sold in Balkans By JANE EADS Washington — About 2,000,000 pairs of worn, unmated shoes, many of which had been in combat, were purchased from Ihe U.S. Army here and now cover Ihe feet of the impoverished of Greece, Yugoslavia, Poland and Italy. The shoes were taken to Europe Ihe way they'were. They filled two freight cars. There were 80,000 cubic feet of shoes. When the shoes reached their With denatured material parently is very difficult it to ap- produce enough explosive for bombs— but that is a matter of time and development of processes,' not of impossibility.

Lynch, a technical specialist for the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration. It was thought it would be better to have the job done over there, where there was much unemployment, than to have it done here, where at the time there was a manpower shortage. At one time 12,000 to 15,000 shoes were being turned out daily. Most of the shoes had between 15 and 20 months' wear. The biggest job was in sizing the shoes, finding mates .seeing that the two shoes in a pair would both wear the same length of time and' so forth. Only about 35 percent of the shoes needed repair. Those beyond recovery were pulled apart and the materials were used in fixing up othrs. There was practically no waste. Farmers, miners, railroad workers and truck drivers have been among the first to receive the shoes. The first 6,000 pairs issued in Rome went to miners in Sardinia who were working with bare and bleeding feet. Some of the shoes were worn by women whose feet were broader than usual. But mostly the shoes given to women and children have come from clothing collections and purchases. .......... Lynch was a technical , supervisor for reclamation in the U. S. Army Quartermaster General's Office in both world, wars. In peace lime he has had his own sole lealher business. ; He bought and cut sole leather for the shoe industry. He has returned fro. mhis job abroad and plans to go back to his own business. . ', He says one of the most interesting phases of the story of the reclaimed shoes was 'the work project. About 500 men and women were employed in all -sour countries. The mating and sizing was done by unskilled workers. .In Italy most of them Came from refugee camps. Skilled cobblers, repair men and shoe factory workers were brought in;to do the repair work. This was/all; dohe by hand. The tools that •vyere user! were furnished by Great Britain. '' r The nails' and composition riibbersol- ing — a type developed for the army — came from the United States. Great stress was laid ;on showing the workers the importance o: their job, says Lynch. Fifty percent of the Italian project workers had to have 'shoes before they even could start work. Standard wages were paid the workers. i —°- :— '• Greek Bandit Spells Death to Communists (Editor's Note: United Press Correspondent Robert Vermillion has obtained the first in : - tetview ever granted by Gregori Spurlas, the read.ed Greek bandit chiefatin. In the following dispatch, Sourlas explains just why he and his rightist bands fight the Communists. Vermillion sought out the bearded bandit in his hill-country headquarters in an effort to get first hand information on the issues involved in the Grek fighting.) By ROBERT VERMIUUON Serdeli, Thcssaly, Oct. 15—(UP) — Grcgori Sourlas, the rightisl bandit chieftain whose name 'means death itself lo Greek Communists, said today that he never killed in malice. Sourlas said he learned late in 1943 lhat Communists in Greece planned to attack the British and seize the government as soon as Ihc country w^ liberated. "I thought their purpose was national when we were fighting together in the resistance movement," he said, "I thought their purpose was to fight the Germans and Italians, but I learned differently and left with some of my men. "The Italians burned my house. The Communists came later and stole my sheep — and I began to fight the Communists. I had protected even British soldiers in my home before the Italians burned it — and for that I suppose I am considered a Fascist.' ' Sourlas is a giant of a man. He wears a beard and his flowing dark brown hair touches his shoulders. He is alleged to have supported himself since 1943 by looting towns and road convoys with not too much political discrimination. But most of all he is feared by the Communists. Spurlas said the Communists had whitlled his once-powerful band down lo 40 men — of whom I counted at least 60 during our interview. He said he had nothing left of his former grealness excepl -a bad reputation. Sourlas said he could not even get support from the government for his fight against the Communists — and he regards this is a double-crow of the first order. The prefect of Larissa — where Sourlas and his men have been active — announced a month ago that all bandits, regardless of their political coloring, would be arrested and jailed if caught. This order placed Sourlas in the same class with leftist bandits, but the government has made no effort to arrest , him—although officials know quite j well where he is hiding. Federal spending during the 10 years of general prosperity, from 1921 to 1930, was about the same as during World War I. During the war, Uncle Sam's spending of astronomical sums became so commonplace that John Q. Citizen scarcely blinks when he hears that the federal expenditure for the current fiscal year is estimated at $41,000,000,000. Newschart above portrays just how big that sum is—this single year will cost eight .billion dollars more thaji we spent during three years of World War I and the same amount more than we splurged during 10 prosperous years. It is just under Ihe entire value of all] ,lhe goods and services produced in ihis country, during the depression. "~ '" — ' - Whither?

BARDEN Oklahoma City. Oct. 15 —«')— Do you yearn, little girl, for the call of n nice wolf? Of course you do, says Maxine Turner, stale nutritionist for Oklahoma, who lias assembled :io end of -helpful hints in a little booklet tilled: "How to Be A Whistle Job." The secret, snys the booklet, sent through the State Health Deparl- mcnl to high school girls throughout Oklahoma, is really no secret at all. It's merely a mailer of .food (for you, - not Ihe wolf), Miss Turner contends, shattering grandma's theory Ihe route to a man's heart is through his stomach. Miss Turner believes it is through his eyes. And nothing, she 'eels, attracts the gentlemanly eye.more than a wholesome looking frame. For advice on how to acquire such a frame, girls arc referred to Miss Turner's booklet. "If you arc strictly a whistle .job," the booklet declares under Ihe sub-title "Food for a Classy Chassis," "You can go ahead and answer the phone that's ringing off the wall. "But if the telephone doesn't work as well as it did, or if the junior department dresses just don'l snuggle up to the chassis as of old, lend an ear, sister. "A proper diet is the sixty-four dollar answer. "Food such as milk shakes, pas- lories, cakes, rich sauces, cream, fat meats and candies arc definitely on Ihe red signal for fatty. "It you are on the lanky side, you'll need to eat mure of the above. "But, whatever you failing, you'll have to keep an eye on the seven basic foods, which go like so: Green and j'Sllow vegetables (one serving a day). "Citrus fruit (one serving a ctayK "Potatoes and other fruits and vegetables (two or three servings daily). "Milk .incl milk products (one t quart daily). "Meal, Cish, eggs and poultry (two servings daily). "Whole grain or enriched bread and cereal (three servings daily). "Buller or H'olii'ied margarine (three lablespoons daily). "Play these on your bathroom scales," Ihe booklet urges, "and we'll be seeing you—and so will the dream bout wilh Ihe gleam in liis eye!' Of course, there's one more question to answer—has Miss Turner, who has yot to succumb to the call herself, been following her own advice concerning her daily ration? Consultation wilru a number of well-qualified critics brought a unanimous answer which would be music to her ears: 'Whee—wheeooo '." Quest Begins for New Cotton Queen of Annual Show Memphis, Tenn., Oct. 15 — W)— The National Cotton Council today began the quest lor the 1947 maid of cotton who will be "the goodwill and fashion ambassador for the cotlon industry."

Cain, author of "The Postman Always Rings Twice" and other rough and rowdy fiction. Called the American Aulhors Authority it seems designed lo be a closed-shop clearing house for magazine, screen and radio writers. 'Long Half' and Swing Music Not So Far Apart Now York, Oct. 17—(/I')—The chasm between "long hair" and "swing" music is easily bridged—1£ your's Jascha Hci- fetz and willing to take a dare. The eminent concert violinist was disclosed last night to be the composer of the music to the new popular "hit" song, "When You Make Love to Me," published in June and credited to Jim Hoyle (Hei- fclz's' intitials) and Marjoric Goctchius, lyricist. None of the recording companies, nor the artists who recorded it, including Bing Crosby, knew the identity of the composer. It all came about when Miss Goclchlus dared I-5cifclz to match his music with his words. All writers in these fields, seems, would have to belong guilds representing their various professions. Once joined up, they could send their works to the AAA which would handle the copyright and marketing". It would lease jnat- erial only to .such magawnesSarid radio and movie firms "as t "c"0n1ply with the basic agreements of these guilds." In other words, the AAA would have the market sewed up at both ends. The Cain plan is obviously inspired by ASCAP (American Society of Composer's, Authors and Publishers) and James PetriUp's musicians' union. But the situation with the writers doesn't fit these models. ASCAP came into being largely to protect song writers who formerly had to sell all rights to their the early trend was lower. At Chicago, cattle opened :$2 to .'S3 lower on medium and low grades. Strictly choice grades were steady but under pressure. The early top was $35, 25 cents below yesterday's all time high. Congestion was reported at many yards. At Madison, Wis,, the Oscar Mayer packing plant said it was receiving more hogs than it could handle. Officials said the plant probably would have to curtail purchases because the labor force could not be built up quickly enough to handle the run. Long lines of trucks waited ' at the stockyard gates at Chicago, Omaha, Neb., East St. Louis and Indianapolis. The run indicated that all early estimates of receipts would be exceeded. Independent estimates of the number of hogs in today's shipments totaled lb/,000, compared with only 9,500 a week ago. At Omaha, hogs were selling at $21.50, off $4 from yesterday. The bulk was being held for higher iriccs. The yards estimated Uieir .otal receipts of hogs, cattle and sheep at 35,000 head. Despite the lower cattle trend at Chicago, steers at East St. Louis set a new top at $30 per hundredweight in early trade. Good steers were selling at $23 to $27, but the market generally was lower. A :J27 top for vealors set a new high. Hogs at East St. Louis opened $4 to .'54.50 lower and were closing $5 to $6 lower. work for whatever publisher offered them. If the song was a hit, the publisher might sell a million copies in pre - war days. But the composer and lyric writer didn't gel a cent in royalties. Pctrillo imposed a tax 6n records for the same basic reason. His mu- sicions got paid for making a record, but a radio station might use this same record over and over again on paid broadcast lime. (The recording musicians don't collect on Ihe tax unless perhaps they're unemployed, but that does not immediately concern us her.) Cain's AAA is something else again. Magazine and, in all bul exceptional cases, radio writing is a nne - shot proposition. A story is published, n script is broadcast, and that's the end of it. Motion picture profits, of course, come from repeated sales. But the screen wrjters don't work for peanuts, any more than the actors do. In fact, we've heard no piteous cries for help from any of the writers who fit into Cain's scheme. Good magazine and radio writers have pretty lucrative jobs, as writing goes. Scrcr.-n writers have even better ones. Nor can unionization be Cain's main concern, for the screen and radio writers arc already organized. Bul whatever his purpose, the re- sull would certainly be an invitation for bold, high - handed censorship and diclalorship. Its dangers are obvious. The fact that the Cain plan is backed by the notoriously Com-, munist - dominated Screen Writers Guild is only an incidental objection. The point is thai Cain is asking writers to adopl a plan by which Ihcir writings could be suppressed by the AAA for any reason. The magazine, radio and picture indus- iries are asked to adopt a plan which would permit the AAA to diclalc Ihe subject mailer used by all three, it it chose to do so. So, though Cain may be promising to fiel the writers more money, il is clear that they stand to lose more than they gain. The AAA plan is a potential blow at independent writing and a free press. We believe that this is a Triple- A which might well be plowed under. Cotton Consumption in September Shows Increase Washington, Oct. 17 —(/P)— The Census Bureau reported today that cotton consumed during September totaled 818.449 bales of lint and 74,440 bales of linters. This compared with 85,511 bales of lint and 86.917 bales of linters consumed during August of this year, and 700,444 bales of lint and 12 German Employes Are Under Scrutiny By THOMAS A. REEDY Nuernberg, Oct. 17—(/I')—Sources inside Nuernberg jail said today that 12 German employes were under constant scrutiny in connection with a three-man "army board's closely veiled investigation of how, where and when Hermann Gocring got the cyanide with which he beat Ihe hangman by Iwo hours Tuesday night. These sources, unidentifiable by name, said the Germans were not under arrest bul described them as being "prolcctively held" until they arc completely cleared of all possible complicity in Ihe eleventh- hour suicide by which Gocring managed lo precede his 10 doomed colleagues in dcalh. The secrecy surrounding Iho burial place of Ihe one-lime No. 2 Nazi and Ihc 10 who died by the noose yesterday morning remained iinpcnelrablc, although it was believed the bodies had been spirited away by plane for interment. Rumors without confirmation circulated in Ihe corridors of the old prison lhal the ringleaders of Adolf Hitler's wrecked Fascisl slate might have been buried at ca. The army board investigating the Goering suicide, meanwhile, called in, one by one, every person who conceivably might have had some connection with the pudgy rcicnsmarshal in his last days and nights in the death block. In the mcanlimc, Ihc Allied Con- Irol Council's commission which conducted the executions disclosed that it had translations of the Ihreo noles Gocring lefl in his cell bul said Ihe contents of the noles would not be divulged. One of the notes was addressed lo Ihe prison commandant and there was immediate speculation that Gocring might have told how he gol Ihc poison and how he concealed il — his lasl grim joke. Col. B. C. Andrus, prison commandant, insisted that he bplievcd his own personnel innocent of any wrong-doing. He said bitterly that a German atlorncy, perhaps in ihc lasl days of the trial, may have given Goering the poison vial thai enabled him to take his own life. In this, however, he was in conflict w;;!i 'ais assistant. Major Fred Teich, who said he was convinced lhal Goering had found some way to conceal the vial and might have had it in his possession ever since his incarceration after the war ended. Teich also sought to explode a circulating theory that one of ihc prison guards traded Goering the poison for one of the marshal's gems. Teich said he had all the jewels safe in the prison strongbox. $1,000,000 Jewel Robbery in England By ROBERT MUSEL London, Oct. 17 —(UP)— A daring "cat burglar" slolc gems of undisclosed value from the Duchess of Windsor's $1,000,000 collection at Ednam Lodge, bjburban vacation residence of the Windsors, virtually under the eyes of crack Scol- land Yard agcnls, il was disclosed loday. The sensalional robbery, possibly one of the major gem thei'ts of recent.times, occurred late yesterday in the suburban Sunningdale Manor which was under guard by agents of Scotland Yard's criminal investigation ..branch. Dclcclives flally refused to reveal Ihc worth.of the gems in the stolen jewel casket. If Ihe duchess' entire collection was in the casket the robbery will rank as one of the major jewel thefts of recent years. The duchess' gems were valued before the war at $1,000,000 for insurance purposes and may be worth much more today . The thofl was discovered by the duchess when she wcnl to her room lo dross for dinner laic yes terday.

Despite Charges Against Reds in Greece Disputes Russia Not Ready for Serious Trouble By J. M .ROBERTS, JR. AP Foreign Affairs Analyst (Substituting for MacKenzie) Some months ago, in spile of all Ihc fanfare and Ihe diplomalic "victories" of the western powers, Ihe Iranian province of Azerbaijan was detached from control of the central government at Tehran and moved into the Russian sphere. Now a comparable process is at work in Greece, wilh some differences. No "aulonomous" regime has been sel up behind a shield of foreign military occupation. The Greek government has an army, and British military support has not been withdrawn as it had been from Iran. Greece even has a promise of military support against aggression from the United States "under ihe Uniled Nalions," whatever thai means in view of the absence of any United Nations police force, and whatever "aggression" means. Jusl assuming that the rebels, guerrillas, Communists, patriots or whatever you wish to call them — depending upon whose propaganda you accept — arc being financed and armed through Russian-satellite Yugoslavia and Rus siaivarmcd Bulgaria, as the government charges, and assuming lhat they should gain control of northern Greece as the pro-Russian Iranians did of Azerbaijan would that be aggression? Or would there be merely an accomplished fact, with northern Epirus, Thrace and Macedonia moving into autonomous conjunction with Albania. Yugoslavia and Bulgaria in Russian sphere? It is quite probably that no answer will be provided on these points. The British can be expected to see to it that the Athens government gets sufficient help to put down the trouble, since, if the insurgents do gel oulsidc help, it must remain clandestine and therefore insufficient unless the Slav bloc is willing lo lake chances which hardly seem reasonable. II is true that northeastern Greece and her adjacent islands control, under proper military conditions, the western approach to the Dardanelles. But there is every Indication that Russia doesn'l wanl even the Dardanelles itself bac enough to take a chance on wai over it, much less over its ap- oroaches. There is, indeed, ever) jvidcncc thai, in spile of then differences and jockeying for posi lion, none of Ihe powers is going to lake any really dangerous slcps any lime soon. The slate of the vvorld may be comparable with 1930, bul hardly yet wilh 1939. As a mailer of fact, it is no demonstrable that the Greek trou ble is attributable to Moscow. Bal san peoples arc sufficiently habit uatcd to their own quarrels it carry them on without outside help Yugoslavia, Albania and Bulgari; are not likely to be caught work ng against Russian interests, bu Moscow doesn't attempl lo dircc their every move, either. If spontaneous activities product a profit for the Soviet, well anc .sood, bul if the gravy bowl is toe hot lo hold, don'l reach for it. Tha much the same way that Mongolia ' probably, is Russia's position re moved from the Cjjjncse into the garding Greece.

ARROWSMITH Washington, Oct. 17 —(IP)— OPA :oday removed price lids from coffee as it speeded up the decontrol drive. As the White H9use prepared to nastcn the scrapping of wage controls along with food price ceilings, OPA freed all vegetable fats and oils—margerihe, mayonnaise ' and salad dressings—from fcdera Irc- slrainls, The agency said it agreed to lift its price ceilings on coffee because "data presented by the industry and obtained by OPA" indicated thai "supply and demand were approximately in balance."

This is Ihe tri-way—public, industry, labor—panel whose industry members recently submitted resignations to Mr. Truman. Some labor and business leaders have demanded that it be abolished. While forecasting a quick decision on the board, officials said Ihe stage already is sel for "ac- ccleraled" scrapping of wage control? Hence they expressed doubt thai Ihc president will consider il necessary to take any further action on this right away. "He made his position clear on thai when he said in his radio talk (Monday nighl) that the speed-up of price decontrol will necessarily hasten the removal of wage controls," said one official in close touch with the White House discussions. The official told a reporter lhat faster scrapping of wage curbs "will be automatic" as price lids drop off, since only industries under ceilings are tied at present to pay controls. He added that OPA is "really going to roll" in gelling rid of price ceilings, and thai this in turn will free wages in most industries very soon. In some fields—construclion, or example—prices will remain iindei control for some wages will too. time. Hence, boro, Biythevillc, Helena and I3ea,r- cy participaling.
