Vance Clayton announced today. The March figure was $!iO,GG3,- (H)I — nearly $4.000,000 less than Ihe balance at the end of February.

Aboard the U. S. S. Missouri in the Mediterranean, April ;! —ii/fii — Units of the U. S. Navy will pay courtesy calls to Scandinavian ports this spring or .summer, and later will pay similar calls to ports all over the world says Admiral H. Kent Hewitt. Hewitt, commander of U. S Naval Forces in Kuropo said that the Missouri's present trip to Istanbul was not intended to imply lhal the United States was offering backing to l.tirkey. The battleship, with He- I wit aboard, is bearing the body of the late Turkish ambassador ' to Washington, Mehmet Mnnir Ertegun, back to his homeland. Hewil declared, however, that the missouri would be ready at all limes to stand by in any port where sho was needed if disturbances threatened American interests. "Although there is no present need," he added, "1 would like to see more ships in the Mediterranean. However, under Ihe present .situation, we could be reinforced quickly from the Allanlic Fleet." Oregonian Thinks Little of the GOP Washington, April 2 — (UPl — Sen. Wayne L. Morse, R..

Morse issued a statement in which he asserted: "The meeting of the Republican National Committee at the Statler hotel last night was a grand flop. If the program, which its leaders announced at the banquet, is to constitute the Republican policy during Ihe next two years, the Republican National Committee will re-elect Harry Truman in spite of Woman Robbed of $10,400 by Youth at Nashville.

Page Chinese Factions Still Fight By REYNOLDS PACKARD Mukden, April 2 (Delayed) — i UP i— <~n'mcsc Communist and Nationalist armies, scrambling Jor possession of the Manchurian capi- tol'of Changchun, turned a cold shoulder today on four Chinese- American armistice teams seeking peace in Manchuria. Both Chinese factions ignored the peace-making delegations because they feared that the learns will interfere with their military operations in the wake of the withdraw ing Soviet armies. U. S. Consul General Edmund Clubb said that the political situation involving Soviel-American-Chinese relations was "too ticklish" for American correspondents' dispatches to be transmitted from Mukden ewer Stale Department radio facilities. Correspondents asked for permission to send their dispatches through the Stale Department's new information service, as they have been doing in Pciping and Tientsin. Clubb said he feared that if any dispatches critical of the Commun- wcre transmitted over Stale Deists, Nationalists or Russians were transmiled over Slate Department facilities, the tone of the dispatches might be interpreted as Stale Department policy. The four armistice teams, work- ling under an arrangement made by Gen. George C. Marshall have been marking time since their arrival ncnding clarification of their authority to be in Manchuria at all. Makeup of the teams includes Communist, American and Nationalist representatives. The teams are under orders to settle disputes between the rival armies in accordance with a political agreement reached in Chungking. (Violent arguments between Communist and Nationalist adherents broke out in Chungking Tuesday. Communist quarters predicted thai large scale conflicts, in North China were imminent.) Actually, the teams are far from complete in personnel. Only the American section is fully represented. Key Niiliontillsl members :irc nbsenl, and no Communist delegates have reached Mukden. Tlie Niilionalisls appeared even loss eager than the Communists for the peace teams to operate in Manchuria. The Communists felt that presence of the teams n.' least Have de facto recognition of, the communists us an important force to be handled by high level diplomacy. Reliable reports said thai 1 Brig, Gen. Henry Byroade, director of Ihe operations section of the peace mission's executive headquarters, may fly to Changchun for a conference with Soviet authorities. Both Communist and Nationalist forces are jockeying to take over Changchun when Soviet forces complete their withdrawal. A Communist-Nationalist - American mission from Chungking may arrive here next week to attempt to straighten out the situation. When American correspondents flew to Mukden from Pciping in an executive headquarters plane, they were required to sign a commitment that they would not enter any Manchurian territory occupied by the Russians. Highest executive headquarters authorities in Mukden said the commitment was void because the headquarters did not have power to enforce such regulations on correspondents. ')— A Little Rock Broom Works Destroyed by $55,000 Fire Lille Rock, April 2 — (/] one story warehouse of the Little Rock broom works was destroyed today by fire of undetermined origin with damage estimated by Hie owner, Ben Lessenberry, at approximately $!>5,000. The flames were fanned by a high wind and four pumpers 'and one truck were used to prevent the blaze spreading to the main factory building. Government Gives Wheat Farmer Break Washington, April 3 —W 1 )— The government today gave the farmer a chance lo gamble on a possible future price rise in wheat and still sell his grain now for shipment to famine-stricken areas. Under a special program designed to pull more than 100,000,000 bushels of the bread-grain off farms during the next 90,days to meet urgent foreign needs, the Agriculture Department will allow growers lo dispose of their grain now and pick a future market price. This program was hit upon to combat a future market price. This program was hit upon to combat a reported tendency of wheat farmers to hold their grain for possible higher prices. Lending support to the belief that farm prices may go higher is strong .support in Congress for the so- called Pace farm parity price bill which would raise the parity and ceiling price of wheat from 1.58 to .$2.10 a bushel nationally. Farmers selling wheat under the new program must select a future dale, which may not be later than March 31, 1947, for determining the price they will get for their grain. The price will be the market price prevailing on the chosen date. Those who fail to designate a specific date will be required to take the market price of March 31, 10-17. / It would be possible for a farmer to gel more or less than present price, the eventuality depending, of course, on the market prevailing on the chosen dale.

Me- Kcllar is seeking to destroy the Tennessee Valley Authority are ridiculous," Political Leader Edward Crump declared today. "It is a well-known fact that the senator consistently fought for the construction of all the dams that have been built and obtained all the appropriations for that purpose." Crump is supporting McKcllar's campaign for rcnomination and reelection in opposition to Edward (Red) Carmack. "I read Carmack's brags over Ihe state that he would win in a walk; he would show Sen. McKellar up and give me a good lime,' 'Crump said. "He will be the 29lh man who has gone over the state seeking a major office and taking me as their text. All failed. "Carmack sailed under the banner of his father before, and this time he sails under the banner of the Nashville Tcnnesscan. "If Carmack thinks he is going to take me for a sleigh-ride in August, he has a job on his hands." Crump described Carmack as "a failure as a lawyer, failure as a newspaperman; too heavy for light work and to light for heavy work." "McKcllar will give Carmack and the Nashville Tcnnessean a real dressing down on Aug. 1." 300 Russians Leave Iran by Caspian Port, Bandar Shah Tehran, April 2 —(/I 1 )— Approximately 300 Russian soldiers, apparently on their way out of Iran, went aboard ship today at the Cas pain port of Bandar Shah in Aster- bad province. A Kurdish chieftain who arrived from Saujbulagh, scat of the Ghazi Mohammed "independent Republic of Kurdistan," said Russian troops also arc withdrawing from the Mi- vandaub area in western Iran and "arc returning lo Tabriz," Azerbaijan capital. The wharves, bivouacs and the regular army camp at Bandar Shah appeared from a plane to be stirring with activity. In the narrow harbor, three empty 500-ton freighters with steam up awaited the departure from the single slip of a loaded cargo transport, jammed with troops staring unsmilingly up at an American plane which circled repeatedly above them.
