HUN POMtf V V CINJfMMY glCWARP WIPMAW • T*YIO| Government Preparing for Meyers Trial Washington, Nov. 26 — (UP) — Justice Department investigators were serving subpoenaes today on key. witnesses,''. in the .sweeping grand jury inquiry into the wartime financial manipulations of retired Maj. Gen. Bennett E. Meyers. As the grand jury laid aside the Meyers case until Monday, U. S. Attorney George Morris Fay began lining up the individuals he believes can back up the government's charges against the former air force procurement chief who allegedly usedi his office for financial gain. Fay refused to reveal just who_ ad been subpoenaed. But it was" elieved the witnesses would in- ludc some of the nationally-known ersonalities who testified against Beyers at the hectic hearings of a enate war investigating subcommittee. Meyers, a dapper, 52-year-old ca- 'eer officer who was stripped of his military honors as an after- nath of the Senate inquiry, was ac:used before the committee of juilding up a huge fortune through lis connection with Aviation Elec- :ric Corp., an Ohio subcontracting firm. The grand jury took over the case yesterday, and in a short session, Fay and" his Justice Department colleagues laid the groundwork for prosecution of Meyers on a wide variety of charges. While the specific charges were not revealed, they probably will be drawn from a list including perjury, subornation of perjury (inducing someone to commit perjury), bribery, war fraud, conspiracy, extortion and income tax evasion. Conviction of all these charges would carry a total maximum penalty of $629,500 in fines and 39 years in prison. Besides a criminal trial, Meyers also faced an air force court martial which could sweep away the last vestiges of his former military status. The air force so far has not only stripped him of his decora- lions but has cracked down on his $549-a-month disability pension as well. Fay's opening huddle with the 23-member grand jury was largely routine. But it indicated that the first indictments to be requested would be the two-count perjury charges. ^Only two witnesses testified. They were Senate stenographers Martin Smith and Kenneth Bowers who presumably turned ove_r to the grand jury a certified record of the Senate hearings at which Meyers was labelled a "rotten apple" who used his high office for personal gain. Fay refused either to estimate how long it would take him to fin- sh his case or to say if he in- .ends to call any of the prominent personalities who publicly hurled •falsehood" charges at Meyers. These included retired Gen. H. H. Arnold, former air force chief, and Hollywood plane-maker Howard It was considered likely that both Arnold and Hughes would appear >efore the Justice Department's en- ire case was concluded. Meyers can appear if he so desires, but some sources believed he would reserve his defense for an open court. o — Thread designated as "200" means that the thread is 200 times 840 yards to the pound of cotton.

A resolution advocating administration of the soil conservation program on a state and local levels in co-ordination with the Agricultural Extension Service, rather than on a nationwide basis, was adopted by the federation yesterday in the final business session of its 1947 convention here. The bureau also went on record in the resolution as urging that farmers be i given "maximum voice" in selecting soil conservation practices "to meet local conditions," and ^proposed agricultural "grants of aid to states and local governments in the same manner as the federal government is presently discharging its responsiblity in education, road and social secur- controls. Aiken expressed the view that prices will continue to rise, and told a reporter: "Prices now, I think, have gone as far as they can without resulting in another wage increase. I doir't see any hope that the upward spiral will stop before next spring or the next crop year." Aiken defined a "moderate" increase as 10 or 15 per cent and said he thinks it could bo granted by industry without setting off a new round of price increases. He pointed to corporation profit reports this year as justifying this position. and Secretary S. C. Mack of Newport. Among the resolutions adopted were those advocating: Federal funds for research programs; Continuation and expansion of the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937 in view of surpluses, prospects of surpluses and problems of stabilization and marketing; Laws to protect water rights in Arkansas due to expanded irrigation; Consolidation and improvement of rural school districts; A program "whereby rural electric co-operatives will be able to construct steam generating plants, Edward A. O'Neal, president of the American Farm Brueau Federation, told state federation mean- bers at a banquet last night that "there are weak spots" in the federal farm programs, "but farmers know them better than anyone else and it is they who ought to make suggestions for improvement. " He said that unless the farm price support program, scheduled to expire next year, and the Commodity Credit Corporation are con- mued, "it would be utterly impos- ible to stabilize farm prices so as o keep our farm economy healthy nd prosperous." The federation approved a reso- ution urging "adequate federal ppropriations to support conserva ion payments x x x and all other ecessary programs of the federal jovernment designed to maintain ne parity income of farmers."

In a joint note they recommended to the Big Four that the Ruhr district come under special international control with their governments participating. Although they were not invited to give their views on the allied policy in Germany, they feel, the note said, that their interests arc .too interwoven with Germany to pass it by and asked that no decision be taken without previous consultation with and approval by the three nations. They expressed their regret that the "occupation authorities in- many respects have not given adc- qute consideration to the vital interests of their three -countries, particularly in the economic field." steam generating plants with hy droolcctric plants, to the end that there will be less likelihood of a shortage of power on the farmsxx". The federation went on record as "strongly" opposing the practice of changing identity of cotton by shipping from its place of origin into another area, retagging and selling as cotton of that area" and urged that "steps be taken to prohibit such practice." Some federation members previously had declared individually that California cotton was being shipped into Arkansas and tagged as Arkansas cotton, to which they said it was inferior.

He said he wanted this right for six months time as he pleaded for power to help him fight a strangling wave of Communist-inspired strikes throughout France. The assembly's committee on civil and criminal law immediately approved the government bills, 26 to 13, aiid sent them to the assembly, which is expected to consider them later in the day. Approval would give the > government a weapon against newspapers encouraging the strikes, which have made more than 2,000,000 French workers idle. Government employes found guilty of "agitation" would be dismissed under the measures. Key industries, including electric power, railroads, and wire communications, are nationalized and their employes work for the government. The powers asked by Schuman would run from tomorrow until May 31, 1948. In demanding "complete revision" of the laws on sabotage, he took cognizance of yesterday's reports that sabotage was on the increase and declared: "If we have reached this point, the responsibility belongs to the Communists." He said the trouble was being caused more and more by foreign ly toured Kurope, and who return- ] elements. Protests roared from the ed with the demand for some sort j Communist benches.

This does not necessarily mean that the legislators were shortsighted or dead wrong in their earlier ^opposition. Conditions have chang- ^cd in the meantime. Also, some of the strategy of former Assistant Secretary of State Benton and some of the tactics of his assistants were open to criticism. There was nothing wrong with Mr. Benton's basic idea. It was his laudable intention to fight distortions w.ith dispassionate truth, and to. sell American democracy to the semislaves in Europe by such means as the Voice of America broadcasts, publications, librar- •ies "ahd'TravBling" aft 'exhibits. But that was last spring. At that time Mr. Benton's principal target seemed to be Russia. But the Russian people, who most needed to hear the truth about American life and policies, were and are almost hopelessly insulated from the truth. The Russian people who are 35 and under have been fed from the cradle on the anti-capitalistic dog? ma of Marx and Lenin. The older ones have had a steady diet of such propaganda for 30 years. Few WRussians have radios on which to hear the American side of the story. And it is conceivable that even those who listen to it may simply put it down as false propaganda. Furthermore, the picture has changed since Congress last considered this State Department information bureau. The Soviet government has tightened its grip on the Balkans. There is now a Marshall Plan to be explained and defended, not behind the iron curtain but in the countries awaiting ^a-ugda has now been stepped up to American aid. Communist propaganda has now been stepped up to a high pitch. National pride is being appealed to. The threat of American imperialism and loss of sovereignty is dinned into western Europe/ears and minds day after day. • What is needed now, it seems to us, is a more forceful presentation .;of the American story. There must ••'be the same scrupulous regard for 'truth as now, but there must be (^greater emphasis. We mst play up what we are doing now and what we have done to relieve hunger and hardship in Europe. We must make it even plainer that the refusal of Russia and her satellites to participate in the European recovery program was Moscow's idea, not ours. We must dispel the idea that we are seeking to dominate Europe, or to stuff the capitalistic system down unwilling throats, or to make war. National modesty is no longer a ^'virtue. The people of Europe must be shown the contrast between our generous but largely unpublicized aid and the niggardly Russian contributions which have been ballyhooed put of all proportion. It may go against the grain of Americans, individually and collectively, to bloyv our own horn. But that type of information service seems indicated under present circumstances. o CROPS IN DESERT In what now is only arid Ari- Q zona desert, early American Indians grew bountiful crops long before the days of Columbus. By hand labor alone, a network of irrigation canals 150 miles in length \ was dug through the stony soil to ' carry water from the Salt River. 5 The ditches ranged up to 30 feet ganized workers were on strike and government forces were ejecting strikers from rail centers and other strongholds they had seized. Schuman also asked the assembly to reorganize part of. the French security forces and to pass a new law giving added protection to non-strikers. The security forces whose reorganization was asked by Schuman were the Republican security companies — similar to the U. S. National Guard — among which widespread sympathy for the strikers has been reported. Whole companies already have been disbanded on this ground. In.the course of his speech Schu-' man ',also,. S3.id,,it....would...be.,,Tie,?es<: sary to take "measures -of mobilization," but he did not explain what he had in mind. Earlier some sources said the cabinet wanted power to requisition or conscript workers. Communist Labor Chief Benoit Franchon published in the Communist Newspaper L'Humanite today an appeal to "the whole of the non-striking population" to "come to the aid of thosse who are fighting". There were broad hints from other sources of plans for an all out general strike for Monday. It was learned that the approximately 80,000 soldiers, half the class of 1946, called up yesterday would be under orders of the Ministry of Interior, which controls the police forces, and not of the Ministry of Armed Forces, as is customary. in width, places. and 10 feet deep iu Gasoline Shortage Is Predicted Washington, Nov. 29 (UP) A government expert predicted today that filling stations will have to shut down at night and on Sundays this winter because of a shortage of gasoline. But the big pinch on automobile drivers, he said, will come next spring. Robert Friedman of the Interior Department's oil and gas division said at least half of the big petroleum companires are allocating scarce gasoline to dealers now and the rest will have to follow suit during the winter. Although driving has fallen off slightly since summer, he said, the gasoline demand is still 10 per cent over the corresponding period last year. "It looks as though the only solution will have to be shutting down stations on nights and Sundays," Friedman said. Standard Oil Company of Kentucky yesterday cut December allocations, 5 per cent for dealers in Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia and Florida. Soeony-Vac- uum, it was learned, has cut supplies to New England dealers as much as 50 per cent. Standard Oil of New Jersey has pared down on east coast dealers and Standard Oil of Indiana has been allocating since last summer. At least six other big companies have lowered their sales to dealers or are unable to increase them. In addition to th gasoline demand, petroleum producers also are faced with a 15 per cent increase over last year • in winter By MAX HARRELSON New Yok, Nov. 29 —(.f)— The bitter fight over the "Soviet-American" plan to partition Palestine was split wide open todqy ?" a result of Columbia's surprise move of yesterday to defer final United Na;ions action until next spring. j As the United Nations Assembly was called back into session set for p. m. (CST), after a 24-hour recess, Colombian Delegate Dr. Alfonso Lopez was reported to have lined up strong support, including the Arab-led anti-partitionists, for his plan of dcferrment. The Arab countries met secretly last night and were slated to meet again before the assembly convened this afternoon. One informed source said the Arabs had decided not to take "too stiff" an attitude in the problem but that they had not yet decided whether to offer a proposal on their own a-ccount. This was taken as evidence of an apparent move by the Arabs to be more open to conciliation. Heretofore they have been adamant against any proposal except their demand for a single independent Arabic nation in the Holy Land. I The Colombian proposal for delay was laid before the assembly late yesterday at Flushing Meadow Park when most delegates thought they were finally at the point of voting on thq partition plan'AS*v.--; . Just how .seriously the problem was complicated by the Colombian move could not be ascertained immediately. Chief U. S. Delegate Warren R. Austin said it would not fiminish the chances of the partition plan being accepted. One high U. N. -official, on the other hand, expressed a belief that the move had killed all chances of partition being approved at this assembly session, which has been running since Sept. 16. The Colombian proposal provid ed that the assembly's 57-nation Palestine committee should be constituted as a special organ of the assembly to continue work on ths Palestine problem; that it should try to bring about agreement between the Jews and Arabs; that it should report to the secretary-general on its work not later than next Feb. 29. It provided, further that the member nations, on the basis of this report, should advise the secretary-general not later than next April 15 whether they -wanted to call tne assembly back in extraordinary session to act on the Palestine problem. i Separate German _tates would close door for Russia to Ruhr's vital industries.
