Navy Expert Forecast Jap Attack * By JOHN L. CUTTER , Washington. JJan. 28 — (UP> — MSl Capt. E. M. Zaeharias. a specialist PI in naval intelligence, testified today that he forecast the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor nine /months before Dec. 7. 1941. Zaeharias told the Pearl Harbor Investigating committee he warned Adm. Husband E. Kitnmel in .March, 1941, that if Japan started .a war with the United States it •likely would begin with ;i Sunday 'morning air attack on the fleet in Pearl Harbor. ' He said he didn't try to predict the exact date that the attack ,jvould occur.

HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Kimmel recently told the com mittee he remembered talking to Zaeharias in March. 1941, but, he didn't recall the prediction. Zaeharias was called as a witness because the committee found an affidavit by him in Navy Department files, written thve nionths after the attack, concern ing the prediction. Zaeharias told the committee he could understand that Kimrne didn't recall details of the convei sation because as commander in chief of the Pacific fleet he was "a very busy man." He said he was sure, however hat the details were rernemberec by Vice Adm. W. W. Smith who was thn a captain and Kinmiel's chief of staff. Smith is expected tc be called to corroborate Zachar as' testimony. Zaeharias was commander of the icavy cruiser Salt Lake City, at the time. He later became com nander of the battleship New Mex co and at the close of the war was ^ngaged in psychological warfare broadcasts in Japanese language umed at achieving unconditional urrender without an invasion of he Japanese home 'islands. Zaeharias said he saw Kimmel nd Smith between March 26 and 1. 1941, in Kimmel's ofice at 'earl Harbor. He went there to re- ort on an interview he had at San 'rancj.sco with Adm. Kichisaburo Nomura, new Japanese ambassa- or to Washington. Zaeharias said Kimmel asked im about the general Japanese ituation and asked what he nought would occur. Zaeharias said he told Kimmol hat if war came Japan would try surprise air raid on the fleet in earl Harbor, that it would come n a week-end and probably a unday morning, and the object •ould be to destroy four U. S. battleships. He said he had decided that Japan would have to reduce our fleet by that much to prevent it interfering with Japanese moves southward.

Interrupting Hi- Senate filibuster igainst the Fair Employment Practices bill, the Maryland Democrat said he doubted thai the Jnited Nations action for "con- rol" of the atomic bomb would be illCCl'SSflll. "I do not believe that Hie United Nations organization is; equipped lo nitiate successfully a task of this uagnitude," the senator said, after pointing out thai all the remaining ;reat world powers are rearming o UK- teeth. Tydings introduced a resolution :alling for Ihe world disarmament •onference as he began a lengthy prepared speech in its support. h'arlier, the special Smite committee on atomic energy was told by Dr. Harrison Da\ies.' of the federation of atomic scientists, that development of atomic energy "musl certainly be freed from every vestige of military control." Uiu-ies, a unlive of Winchester. Va., is now located at Oak Ridge, Term., situ pt an atomic bomb plant. He said he spoke for more i than 1.500 scientists and engineers connected with work on the scource of power. He said in testimony prepared for the special Senate committee on atomic energy that "we wish to go on record most strongly as favoring complete exlusion of the military from any policy-making function on the commission" proposed for handling the problem. Davits added, "we do not mean to exclude efficient liaison between the commission and the armed foices."

' j Other points Oavies made in I endorsing the bill by Senator Me- ' Million (D-Conni to create a com- i mission to handle gram included: 1.

"We teel the espionage act will provide as much national security as can be found in a policy of secrecy." 8. "The policy of postponing .urge-scale industrial application is, in our opinion, a wise policy, x x x Premature development of special interests in this field may prejudice the possibility of international control. 7. "Tnere can be no solution of the problem of security short of an effective international control of atomic and other weapons of offense, and of the elimination of war as n method or settling in- ternalkmal disputes." I ran Appeals to UNO Against Reds Gy R. H. SHACKFORD London, Jan. 28 —(UP)— Iran's clue delegate to Iho UNO appealed lo the Security Council today for help against Russian "int'erfer- "iu-e" in Iranian affairs, only to be challenged immediately bv the Soviet delegate. Iran's appeal no sooner was be,. t , lore the UNO security council than ^.Russia charged that it was prc- ]iew! s , onU - cl by '"' representative of a now ! rleinncl governmcnl. A new Iranian government took oitice Saturday, and the premier said he would seek to negotiate bilaterally with the Russians on their dispute—a proposal advanced earlier before the UNO by the Soviets.

Rosalie, unable to talk, identified Labaido by nods of her head as the man who attacked her, slashed her throat and then draped her, unconscious, over a low gale near the rear of his East Side grocery yesterday. Police said Labaido, who was' picked up in a tavern near the Tuesday, January 29, 1946 store last night, slept peacefully through the niglil in his city jail cell. Wurms said thai when n warrant is sought, Ihe charge will be in the kidnap-murder of six-yenr- old Suzanne Degnan in Chicago.

But j instead of taking over the provisional government, they handled their chance like a hot potato. The bravest thing they could think of was to suggest a lcfli::t two-parly coalition wilh the Socialists. Now, France is a great and cultured country—fallen on evil limes, to be sure, but still a more inviting place than Russia at the lime of Iho 1017 revolution. One would t^nk thai Ihis was Ihe ideal spot for the great experiment: a solid foundation, yet enough temporary discontent to win added support and applause for the miracle workers. It is apparent, however, that the French Communists aren't too sure thai. Dr. Marx's cure-all will really perform the advertised miracles. They are obviously afraid that mistakes will be made in France, and that their golden promises, once put into; effect, couldn't avoid •ye in. ''Communists don't admit having made mistakes. „„, So instead of junlpfi/a ..•l-'ltttr -fiiifiit'O'•• W'-coin- miiiiizc France they decided to dodge the holm and pursue their usual course of sniping, stirring up trouble, and dodging responsibility for their actions. In fact, that seems to be about all they can do. For their final lessons in the correspondence course on world revolution haven't reached them. That is the great weakness of communism outside Russia. Parly •ir embers know how to criticize and agitate and bore from within. They are superb organizers of doslruc- live cells within an alien political body. They probably know how to plan and launch a shooting revolution. But they seem incapable of coping with the prospect of clear sailing. Theoretically, they have such a prospect in the United Stales. Americans have had a chance to choose communism al the polls for more than 2, r > years. They have remained supremely indifferent lo the 'V»|jporlunily. Yel our domestic Communisls have seen it demonstrated thai when Americans decide that a candidate has a better political mousetrap, they will beat a path lo his door and buy it. In Russia, of course, the situation is different. The revolutionary leaders of 1II17 inherited an economic wreck, weak within .and without. They inherited millions of hungry, illiterate, desperate people. Those leaders and their .successors have improved the lot of • Yi'iose people in the course ol a long-range program of domestic and diplomatic improvement, inler- rupled by four years of war. Yel today, if lll ° sum ()I reports from Russia is to be trusted, the people are living in a rather unfruitful present on hopes and promises of a better future, jusl as Ihey have for the last ail years.

Jan. 30 —I/I')— President Truman today asked Congress lo vole $H,7f>(),000,000 loan lo Britain, saying il would lend to expanded "production, consumption and employment and rising standards of living everywhere." Urging prompt action on the agreement, which also includes an additional credit of $050,000,000 settling lend lease obligations, Mr. "'• mnari said the loan will permit this nation and Britain to "move side by side" toward the goal of expanded world trade. '•Britain needs this credit and she needs it now," the president declared in a special message lo Ihe Scnale and House. "It will enable! her lo buy from Ihe world Ihc supplies of food and raw malerial.'i which arc essenlial to the life and work of the British people. At the same time it will keen open :i market for those surpluses of the United Slates which are customarily exported lo Ihe Uniled Kingdom. These are the importanl shorl- lerm purposes of Ihe crcdil." More imporlanl from the American point, of view, Mr. Truman said, is thiil it will make possible the removal of British emergency controls over foreign exchange and imports and provide for return lo peacelime practices "designed to promote the recovery of world trade." "The financial agreement will enable the United Kingdom, through the prompt relaxation of exchange restrictions and discriminations, t,-i move side by side with the United Slates toward the common goiil of expanded world trade which means expanded production, consumption and employment and rising standards of living everywhere," lie said. In addition lo the direcl benefits from the stimulus lo Anglo American trade, he said, there will be "the added benefits derived from the ability of other nations lo relax their restrictions once the Uniled Kingdom has led the way.' Congressional approval of the agreement, the president declared, will be "a great contribution to the establishment of a permancni slate of peace and prosperity," anc added: "We arc all aware of the dangers inherent in unchecked economic rivalry and economic warfare.

The pugnacious little senator im- lounced his topic as "The Fili- nister — The History and Glory jf It." He promised to talk for 30 days, f necessary. But it won't be necessary. Plenty of fellow-southerners were •e.idy lo help carry on the tnlkfcst .vhicn today rounded out two solid weeks. Their opponents were al- nosl ready to concede Ihey could lot win passage of the bill which would outlaw racial and religious lisci imination through a permn- tenl Fair Kmploymcnl Practices Commission. Uilbo hoped he would jo the last straw; his harrnngue, ,hc Inslspccch. Bilbo, who is supicious about al- mosl cvcrylhing except dycd-in-the- olton Mississiiipians, showed remarkable restrainl in remaining ,'enera!ly quiet until today. It was inrd. He nervously flapped a poor- ly-knotled lie, or scratched at his est while fellow southerners took the floor in their fight to talk FEPC lo dealh. But he said liltlc until he arose to warn that he planned to speak on Hi "glory" of filibustering. Sen. Dennis Chiivox, D., N. M., sponsor of the FEPC bill, wanted o know whether Bilbo said "glory" or "gory". Bilbo replied Lhal it was going lo be "gory" for ckers of FEl'C. Furthermore, said Bilbo, he had the backing of all Mississippians. He read a Icl- ler from one conslilucnl who offered to let his wife help out the filibuster. "She's been filibustering for 20 years," the letter said. The alleged defects in the bill were attacked for four hours yesterday by Sens. Waller F. George, D., Ga., and J. William Fulbright, D., Ark. Fulbrighl claimed that the majority of Americans opposed the bill.

HO — (IV)— Midwestern proposals for a nationwide farmers' strike against industrial walkouts met Jitlle enthusiasm today among loaders of major farm organizations. The suggestions for a marketing holiday until labor disputes are settled came from farmers' meeting »l Chiekasha, Okla., Saturday ni.'ihl and in Clay county, Nebraska, Monday. V. Hubert Johnson, of Edgar, Nell., told the Clay county meeting that farmers "have their Irish up" because they can'l gel farm tools, machinery, bathtubs, refrigerators, or even the overalls they want and need.

By ROBERT E. GE1GER Washington, Jan. HO — (/!'j —The Veterans Administration moved lo- day for a clear-cut definition of national policy regarding future medical care and hospitalizalion of veterans with non-service connected disabilities. Gen. Omar N. Bradley, VA administrator, drafted a letter to President Truman outlining the critical situation he said has arisen in handling such cases, due to the shortage of doctors, nurses and nospital space. The point might be reached, Bradley noted, whore no more veterans with non-service disabilities could be accommodated. Under existing policy many veterans with non-service connected disability have been receiving free government, medical care. VA officials said this has resulted in the following situation: 1. Approximately 70 per cent of currently hospitalized veterans from all previous wars have dis- abililies in no way connected wilh Iheir military service. 2. World War 11 veterans with non-service disabilities already slightly exceed those with service connected disabilities, and their number is increasing. Present laws give veterans with service-connected disabilities first call on hospital facilities. If additional space is available veterans with non-scryieo connected cases may be received, but they musl sign a statement saying they are unable to pay a hospital or doctor's bill. Veterans' organizations have been trying to liberalize the rules. The American Legion wants the pauper's oath abolished; Iho Veterans of Foreign Wars ha"c approved resolutions that all disabled veterans be cared for. Alarmed VA officials claim if government policy is liberalized much further there might be so many patients "we couldn't find the doctors to care for them." Under present rules they estimate Ihe.y will have about 250,000 veterans "in hospitals by 197!), or about three limes Ihc number now hospitalized. They consider Ihis a "conservative" estimate of the future, based on experience after World War 1. "If the rules are liberalized, hospital cases night jump to ,'iOO.OOO by 197!)," one official said, asking that his name not be used. Both Gen. Bradley and VA's medical director. Gen. Paul R. Hawley, are of the opinion thai "Congress or authority higher than the Veterans Administration" will have to decide soon what future policy is going to be. As they see it, either hospitalization will have lo be restricted to veterans with service-connected disabilities. Or else a greatly enlarged hospital construction program will be necessary to handle non-service disability cases. UNOCieors Morgan on Jew Charge Washington, Jan. 130 —(UP) — British Lt. Gen.

Touhy said Vincent (Rocky) Costello, IB, Continued on Page Two By JAMES F. DONOVAN Washington, Jan. 30 — (UP) — The House Rules Committee today cleared the way for House action on either a watered-down version of Presidenl Truman's fact-finding legislulion or a sweeping anlt- slrike substitute bill. The House is lo begin consider alion of Labor Commiltcc's fact- finding bill tomorrow. The Rules Committee ruled lhal Rep. Francis Case, R., S. D. may offer his slrongcr measure as a substitute on the floor. No other substitutes may be introduced. The committee's action is subject to approval by the whole House. The committee vote was 8 lo 3. Two days of debute were ordered. The Case bill, introduced yesterday, would make labor unions and employers equally responsible for maintaining their contracls. 11 would provide a 30-day no-strike cooling off period for labor and would authorize the courts lo issue injunctions against violence and property damage by strike pickets. The measure has the supporl of a large number of Republicans and southern Democrats. Meanwhile, Chairman Ira Mosher of the National Association of Manufacturers presented to the Senate Labor Committee an eight point program lo stabilize labor re lalions and "prevent future strike epidemics." The committee is considering fact-finding legislation. Mosher said llie fact-finding procedure should be reserved for spc cial disputes if it is to remain cf fcctive. Us primary job, he said, should be to focus public opinioi n disputes and not to make specific wage recommendations. He said wages should be dccidcc Lhrough collective bargaining Mosher also endorsed the principle of union responsibility, opposed su pervisory unions and suggeslcc voluntary arbitration where the parties cannot agree. The House Labor Committee's fact-finding bill would authorize Mr. Truman to set up fact-finding panels in serious labor disputes. It would nol, however, grant his request lhal Ihc boards have sub- pcna powers or lhal labor be forbidden to strike for a 30-day period. House Republicans pointed out thai Ihc substitute introduced by case closely follows the labor policy •statement adopted recently by GOP leaders in Chicago. Influential southern Democrats endorsed the bill and predicted that other .southerners would probably go along with it. Foes of anti-strike legislation were generally reluctant to comment before studying the Case bill further. However, Rep. Vito Marcantonio, A.L.P., N. Y., said it "would wipe out all of labor gains in the last GO years." "II would nullify whole seclions of the Norris-LaGuardia anti-injunction acl and the "Wagner Labor Relations Acl," he said. "II is a Republican filibuster against labor." Mareanlonio said he would fight any move to let the Case bill come before the House as a substitute lor the emasculated fact-finding bill. 'Aggression 1 Charge in Iran Hurled at by : I Harry Hopkins an Enigmatic Figure to the Last; Career Stirred Bitter Controversy -® London, Jan. 30 — (UP) —The NO security council today re- erred the dispute between Russia nd Iran back to them, and agreed remove the item from the formal council agenda. By LYLE C. WILSON Washington, Jan. 30 —(UP) — When Hurry L. Hopkins died ycs- crday in York he still had .his capital city as baffled as when arrived during Presidenl Roosevelt's first year of office and began npckling congressmen. Washington never could figure nit Harry the Hop. He caused a •ow in Congress even before he arrived here in 1933. He came to direct the leaf-raking and assorted campaigns undertake;-] by the Federal Emergency Relief Administration. First recollection Washington has of Hopkins was one June day in 1033 when the late Senate Democratic Leader Joseph T. Robinson announced thai Ihe iicnding relief bill would have to be amended. Robinson explained that the salary of Ihc administrator would have to be upped from $8,00 -as then propscd in the bill to $10,000. The senator added lhal Mr. Roose- vcll had a man up in Albany who was to be appointed to the job but that the man wouldn't take, the job for less than $10,000. The Senate wrangled for a bit and gave Hopkins the $10,000. Hopkins was the center of congressional wrangles off and on from that time on, and it didn't bother him a bit. Congressmen complained he wouldn't even answer the telephone when they tried to reach him. The thin man wilh Ihe stomach ulcers just laughed at them. Hopkins not only got away with his nose thumbing al Congress but had lime lefl over lo feud with Secretary of Interior Harold L. Ickes. Mostly they battled for the inside position with Mr. Roosevelt. Although Ickes is a prelly good brass knuckle man in lhal kind of a contest, Hopkins usually licked him What was Ihc reason for Hopkins hold on Iho president's confidence and affection? The best explanation the late president was Dial Mr Roosevelt felt thai he had no personal axe lo grind In return the president rewarded Hopkins with favors large and small. He increased his salary from $10,000 lo $15,000 a year during Ihe war and—so far as Ihc record shows—at a time when the government was enforcing a wage freeze on the general public As relief adminslralor, secrtary of commerce, overiord ol lend-lcase and personal ambassador to the "earfu! Wife Recalls Hour When Jap Police Caught With American Spy Bennett (Tlii.s is the fourth of a of columns on Chester nett, American hero of Ben- Hong By HAL BOYLE HoiiK Kong, Jan. 30 —(/I')— Uecl- hairccl Mrs. Chester Bennett, who has an Irish smile and a Portuguese accent, will never lorgct May 14, 11)43, the clay Japanese gendarmes took her husband i'rom her. She never again .saw the man who has become known as "Ihe American hero of Hong Kong." They had been living in strained circumstances. She had been cashing her jewels lo buy food — jewels her husband had given her when his business was nrosperous and their life was free." Bul although they permitted him to remain al his home, Ihe Japanese forbade him from carrying on his restaurant business. Ironically, while his own finances were at the lowest ebb, Bcnnell had sent priceless espionage in- 1 formation out to Ihe Allies and had I dian and Swiss merchants. "Chester gave mo the high sign and I began to yell ^ind scream and cry," said Mrs. Bennett. After staring al her contemptuously lor a moment the Japanese turned away and began to search another corner of llie room. She quickly seized Ihc promissory notes and messages and stuffed lliem into an old newspaper. "While one guard was looking out the window with a pair of inociilars 1 slipped another packet of letters and messages from my coat in the wardrobe and dropped them in among the soiled linen in the bathroom which they had already searched," she went on. "They found no papers of any value al -all — only old pictures and old correspondence.

Anway, Hopkins' own explanation of his position as most intimate adviser of chiefs of other stales, Hopkins do voted most of his lime and his failing energy to his great friend It was to Hopkins that Mr Roosevelt assigned the job of conducting he draft-Roosevelt movement al the 1940 Democratic National Convention .Part of thai chore was to so embarrass James A. Fraley tha' he would promptly resign from chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee and from the cabinet. Hopkins came through or schedule, directing Ihc convention cither Irorn a hide-way hotel suite or from a convention box seat. Practical politicians called Hop kins a political moron, but the rec orcl does not always bear them out Old Charley Michelson, long pub licily director and hatchet man o the Democratic Nalional Commit tee, contemptuously refers to Hop kins as "that welfare worker." Ir his book, "The Ghost Talks," Mich elson charges Hopkins with politica stupidity and comes up with som evidence to support the accusation Hopkins was one of those whi helped whoop Mr. Roosevelt int the 1937 effort to purge the partj of some conservative members o the House and Senate. The purg campaign was a sensational failure Michelson, who had good oppor tunily lo observe Hopkins, con eluded lhat he did not have stron convictions about much of anything The consensus here would b more friendly to Hopkins. But th capital was always baffled by th wisecracking "welfare worker".wh had so obvious an enjoyment of th horse tracks and the more luxur ous ways of life. MacArthur Tokyo, Jan. 30 — Douglas MacArthur (UP) —Gen. today wrote the mother of Pfc. Joseph Hicswa that the final action on her son's death sentence was no longer within his prerogatives. Replying to a letler from Mrs. Anno Hicswa who asked hi>vi lo recommend leniency, MacArthur said, "I can assure vou that you need have no fear bul lhal all the circumstances which your mother's love instinctively raises in defense of your son will receive thoughtful consideration from those who sit in final judgment upon his case." Hicswa, 20, from Walington, N. J., was sentenced to be hanged by a court martial which convicted him of fatally slabbing Iwo Japanese civilians near Osaka. MacArthur explained in Ihe lel- ler thai the case was now cnroulc lo Washington. Under pe;u-.etime directives Ihe review of court martial cases is handled by Ihe War Uepartinenl. the final authority resting with President Truman. In her letter dated Jan. Hi, Mrs. Hicswa said: "My son was torn way from his home to servo his country at the age 0* 18, taught lo kill, heard of many of his friends being killed, was under an emotional strain, was delayed in his homecoming." She concluded that those were "factors which might be attributed to some extent to cause such abnormal conduct, as reportedly alleged in his case.

What this "last word" containe was not disclosed, but a perso close to the industry said Presiden Benjamin Fairless ol the U. & Steel Corporation carried it back t New York to discuss with othe steel leaders. There was no that any major indication her change had oc currcd in the government positio regarding price relief for steel. A advance ol approximately $4 pe ton is reported to be the inaximui the administration will approve. However, U. S. Steel Corporntio asserted only yesterday that an ii crease of much more than $4 woul be necessary even to approximat ils workers' demand for wage ii creases. This estimate was made Chairman of the board Irving Olds.

OPA has coi sislenlly opposed any larger ii crease and has made it clear tha il will not be associated with proval of a higher figure. Whether the new OPA report had become a factor in the conversations between Fairless and government officials or whether new price matters had arisen remained By R. H. SHACKFORD London, Jan. 30 —(UP)— For- ign Secretary Ernest Bevin ac- used Russia before the UNO Se- urity Council today of breaking he three-power treaty of 1942 uaranteeing Iran's sovereignty in 'hat he said looked like "the be- inning of an aggression." A Security Council hearing on ic Iranian-Soviet dispute aevel- ped into a bitter wrangle of re- riminations after Iran offered to egotiate with Russia, but only if he UNO retained jurisdiction, and tie Soviets refused with a curt 'no." Bevin appealed to Soviet Vice r oreign Commissar Andrei Vishin- ky lo withdraw his objection to security Council jurisdiction and quoted Vishinsky as acknowledg- ng that the Russians blocked tne novement of Iranian security orces in the Azerbaijan crisis. "Mr. Vishinsky says the Soviet ligh command stopped these roops — and they were stopped," 3evm cried. "Then wnat is tnere to negotiate about. If they were stopped, then the Soviets infringed on the treaty" (among Russia, Britain and Iran). ; Edward R .Stettinius, Jr., of the United States endorsed Bevin's appeal, .and urged that the Security Council at least keep the if-and- when negotiations between Eussia and Iran under observation. France and China fell in behind Bevin and Stettinius. Even the Polish delegate, Zygmunt Modzelewski, agreed witn the anti-Soviet point of view that the dispute should be left on the council agenda during the proposed negotiations. N. J. O. Makin of Australia, president of the Security Council, said in speaking for Australia that he thought the case ought to be kept on the agenda until a solution is reported. "We really want to promote peace," Bevin said, "but if I may speak frankly, "when this situation developed in Iran, it did not look to us like a war of nerves "It did,„look .to. us;..,like what..Maxim Lityihbv, former Soviet foreign minister, described as the beginning of an aggression." : Iran offered.to negotiate the dispute directly with Russia, but insisted that the negotiations be conducted under the jurisdiction' of the Security Council. Russia fired back a blunt "no," charging that such procedure would make "A fiction" of the negotiations. Bevin made an eloquent appeal to the Soviets not to insist that the council wash its hands of the dispute, and thus leave little Iran to negotiate with big Russia, which still has thousands of troops on Iranian soil. Bevin told the Soviet spokesman, Andrei Vishinsky, he was disturbed by Vishinsky's statement that the Soviet high command ha'd stopped Iranian security troops from entering the north Iranian province of Azerbaijan. That, he said, was a violation of the Anglo-Iranian-S9viet treaty insuring Iranian soviereignty and, pledging a hands-off policy with regard to Iran's internal affairs, including the movement of security forces. Edward R. Stettinius Jr., of the United States backed up Bevin, asking: "Can't the Security Council let Ihe parlies negotiate and yet keep the council informed until there is a satisfactory agreement?" He said he did not feel that keeping the matter on the council's aganda while the negotiations were going on would be incompatible with th UNO charter, the dignity of the disputants, or that of the council. Bevin said the real question was whether Iranian sovereignty had power treaty. He contended it was been infringed under the three- wilhin Iran's rights to send troops lo Azerbaijan when Ihe province rebelled and declared ilself autonomous. "But Mr. Vishinsky says the Soviet high command stopped those troops —and they were stopped," Bevin continued. "Then what is there to negotiate about? If they were stopped, then the Soviets infringed on the treaty. What is there to ^°"i^a'> 11 ' i i i IM a question. (/?)— A against Little Rock, Jan.
