July 23 ;pH-The United States soon will double tbe capacity of the airplace fleet carrying supplies to beleaguered Berlin. General Lucius D. Clay announced today. He expects th:s to increase the chances for a peaceful settlement of the crisis by convincing the Russians that the Western powers . cannot be blockaded out of the ' city. The American M;!i:ary Governor :n Germany revealed the dramatic "air lift'' expansion program at a news conference at the Pentagon Bui!d:ng. Later the Air Force announced that it will start putting the program into effect next week. Bohlcu In London Early toii.ght Secretary of State' Marshall dispatched one of his top Rujsian expert;., Charles E. 3ob- len. to London where he v.:ll confer w:th Ambassador Le-.vis Doug- Jas and possibly British and French officials on the next joint moves by the Western po-.vers in the Berlin cr;sir. The firs; of the^e scheduled moves is the drafting of a new note !o Moscow demanding the end of the Berhn blockade. There have been some differences be, tween Washington and London over the extent to which th:s note shoaid hold out hope to the Russians that if they will lift the blockade the Western powers will be prepared to discuss major German issues. Clay's disclosure topped off Uvo days of high speed conferences d u r i n g which he assured President Truman. Congress leaders and finally she American people that he does not expect the Ber-" !:n ciisis to result in war. "I don't want to minimize the seriousness of the situation." Clay : said at the news conference, "but I don't think anybody in this world wants war and where no one wants war there is a prospect for a peaceful settlement. The air Uft Rives us time to negotiate." Leaves For Berlin , Then he left the sprawling headquarters of the nation's armed . forces and sped to Washington National Airport where he boarded a plane for Berlin. Tonight he was winging across the Atlantic. " hurrying bac^ 10 h:; post to put ihe new American plans into op- ' eration Briefly, as he reported them. ', these are: ' 1. To throw a big new fleet of four-engined C-54 cargo planes into the British-American ferry service between the Western . zones of Gerrnanv and the Western ; sectors of Berlin. The present j daily average delivery is 2.500 j tons. When the C-54's. carrying 10 · tons each, replace all the two-en- · gined C-47's. carrying 2 ! i tons ' each, the daily average delivery ' will be about 4.500 tons. 2. To build a new airport in Ber- · iin which will again indefinitely j enlarge the capacity of the air lift '· by enabling more planes to oper- ' ] ate. The port, however, will take a considerable time to complete. RAF Jet Fighters To Join Training Program Washington. July 23 UP)--Six .

Philadelphia. July 23 /P--A fervent, new. third party marched into national convention tonight beckoning to America's "plain people" to choose between "Wallace or war." Tomorrow, tbe convention nominates Kenry A. Wallace for President. Senator Glen Taylor for Vice President. Tonight. keynote s p e a k e r Charles P. Howard laid down the WaHace-or-war choice as what th:s party sees for the future. The 54-year-old Des Moines lawyer and, publbher. 3 Negro 30 years of allegiance to the GOP cried out to Americans everywhere to accept the challenge of new political frontiers. "The new trails a-Aait us," he faid "the frontier awaits us. The rebirth of this nation awaits our coming. And we are on the march." With equal impartiality and force. Howard v.-aded into what he called: "The party of the mechanical srni!e or ;he Missouri compromise." a Congress whose "order of the day was kill. kill, kill" for civil rights laws, and a Presi- dent--ilr. Truman--who has "been long on say-so and short on do-so.' Wallace himself listened :n and looked on wilh a television set In his headquarters at the Believue Stratford hotel. A few hours before, he had bustled into town to say he is no Communist but that he won't snub Communist support based on "an interest in peace." He predicted a "surprising" vote for his party but cautiously held back any forecast that he will move into the White House next January. Tonight's convention program THE DRUID THEATER DAMASCUS.
