In publishing the text belatedly today Secretary Byrnes emphasized that the Chinese government was not a party to the Yalta agrec- I ment and that relations between ] China and the Soviet Union .are (governed by an agreement signed I between them in Moscow on Aug. 14, 1945, and not by the Yalta concessions. The text shows that President Roosevelt, "on advice from Marshal Stalin," offered to obtain Gen- jeralissimo Chiang Kai-Shek's up; proval of the agreement concerning outer Mongolia and the ports and railroads. The State Department said today that Russia has already enacted tne full agreement. Russian occupation forces and colonists have taken over the whole string of islands comprising the Kuriles group and have also occupied the southern part of Sakhalin, Dairen and Port Arthur. Chungking recently announced its recognition of the complete independence of Outer Mongolia and the preservation of the Mongolian People's republic. The Kuriles, principal object of the agreement, form a chain of 15 major islands 720 miles long from Kamchtka to within the bays of Hokkaido. They lie only 700 miles from Attu and Agatu, which the Japanese attacked, at the western itip of the Aleutian islands. Soviet Russia has now completely blocked off the great sea of Ok- hotsk, with its undeveloped eastern outlets. That sea is controlled on the west by Sakhalin, now wholly occupied by .Russia, and on the east by Kamchtka and the KuiUes, which cut it off from the Pacific ocean. Mechanics 7 Strike Ties Up Greyhound Memphis. Feb. 11 (JP). — The 36- day-qld strike of maintenance mechanics at the Dixie Greyhound Lines. Inc.. continued in forre today as the management* a---- r ailed reaction to its invitalion to all workers lo return to work. Earl Smith, vice-president of the transportation firm, disclosed that his company had written letters to all workers, both drivers and main- r.enance men, involved in the walkout inviting them to return lo ! work today. I Smith said the letter expressed | willingness on the part of the bus line to negotiale wilh any union selected by the workers as a bargaining agent. Last night a spokesman for the struck union — Amalgamated As- j sociation of Eelctric Slreet Rail|way Motor Coach Employes of I America. Local no. 1389 (AFL) — !sa;d tne striking employes had no j intention of* returning to work today. He declined use of his name. "The men are not going back to worn until both contracts are signed," he declared, he referred to contracts with the drivers and maintenance men employed by the company. Last week, the brotherhood of railway trainmen signed a contract with Dixie covering company drivers. The union claimed it represented a majority of the drivers. Picket lines were thrown around the maintenance shops here shortly after the walkout last January 7. At that time the Amalgamated Union contended that drivers .joined with maintenance men in the strike. But company officials said they had never been informed that the drivers were on strike. Pauius Tells of Attack Upon Russia By DANIEL DE LUCE Nuernberg, Feb. 11 OP).— Field Marshal General Friendrich Von Pauius, who was vanquished at Stalingrad and became the Moscow radio's chief German propagandist, testified before his former commanders today he was given the task in September, 1940, of preparing the campaign against Russia.

An announcement on prices was 1 expected momentarily.

WILSON Washington, Feb. 1! — (UP) — The Communist movement is growing in Latin America and is especially thriving Cubs, to a icpo.t from the island available today. i The report was wrilen by Wil-1 Ham Z. Foster, head man of the American Communist party. He has hist returned from attending the thud national nsKembly ..f UK Cuban Peoples Socialist party ii Havana. That is the official style <jf the Communist parly of Cuba : Foster reported that the vice' presidents of the Cuban Senate 1 and House of Representatives are ' Communists. He estimated thai there were 14,000 ••militant" Com-' tnumsts in Cuba and 151,000 affili- ! ates. The party is campaigning to toOOo number Considering comparative popula- ' lions of Ihe United Stales and of Cuba, Foster wrole, Ihe Communist party in this country would ; have to have 450,000 active and militanl members and 4,000,000 af- miales lo be as strong proportion- ' ately as are Ihe Cuban Communists. With their present strength the , Communists have elected seven members of the Cuban house and "nree senators. But iheir greatc-i 1 triumphs, according lo Foster, are j in Cuban labor unions. "The party has great su-englh m the unions," he informed his fellow American followers, •'near-! ly all of the large unions being led ! by Communists. It is signifi'cai'u of Ihc parly's strength and democratic character lhal Ihe head of the Workers Fcderalion of Cuba, Lazaro Pena, is a Communisl Negro, and the president of Ihe Sugar Workers Union, the biggest and most important in Cuba, Jesue Mendenez, is also a Communist I •and a 'Negro." , 9 •son s on A Fair Distribution We feel the only fair way of distributing the small quantity of Nylon hose being received is by allotment.

McMillan (Journal of the American Medical Association) give prcnant women. A group of women who followed this plan had higher liemogolobin and red cell percentages, less tendency toward swelling of the body (eclma,) and belter success in nursing their infants. Studies of the diet of women during pregnancy reveal that the amount of protein eaten seldom equals the National Research Council's recommendation of at oast 85 grams daily; it averages less than 00 grams daily in about one-half the cases. As meat is a good source of protein, it is recommended to expectant mothers as an easy way of helping meet their special needs. EASY TO EAT Meat was selected as a scourcc cf extra protien because the (inanity and quality of the protein m meat makes it easy for the average pregnant woman to eat.

Although the number of women who took part in the experiment is not great, those who had the extra ration of m<.al appar- etnly were benefited.
