July 5 — (UP1— Chicago s Chinatown has lost face tod *'° r " Geruld Moyc admitted Three of its youths have been arrested for stealt The Chinese respect for the jaw is traditional. A parking ticket is a rarity in Chinatown and robberies and burglaries just don't riappen. So it was with sorrow that Moyc learned that the vandals who broke into a notions store last June 11 were Chinese. The mayor went straight to the Police. On the information he supplied. Wing Full Lee. 18, and Henry Eng and Henry Yung, both 14 were arrested. Moye said ne would ask probation for Eng and Yung. "I think tncy were good boys," he said. "I think they were led astray by this older boy. Lee. I wish to do nothing about him. *Je is a Chinese fagin." He^said the community would do what it could to make restitu- :ion.

Man Held in Death of Ozark Woman pzark, July 8 — (/P) —A 23-year- ild man was being held here for investigation today on complaint of a 26-year-old Ozark woman that Aleman Claims Victory in Mexico Mexico City, July 8 — (UP) — Miguel Aleman, candidate of the government party, claimed victory today, while his chief opponent, Ezequiel Padilla, charged "fraudulent practices" in Mexico's qulest- est presidential election in history. Padilla, who formerly was 'a member of retiring President Avila Camacho's cabinet with Aleman, said the elections proved Mexico was ready for democracy. But even the presence of federal troops, he said, "had not prevented llagrant and fraudelent practices in the federal district." Padilla did not elaborate. Aleman made a "victory" statement congratulating Mexican citizens for their "civic sense and responsibility in realizing a Democratic election.' ' "It is a great honor that has been conferred on me by the Mexican people in electing me president of the republic lor the next constitutional period. . I know the responsibility of this distinction and honor," he said. Returns will not be available until Thursday. Five persons were kilcd and an undetermined number injured in political clashes connected with the election ,a survey of government and political party reports showed. o Took Two Leaps But Despondent Man Ended Life' New York, July 8 — (UP) — It took Charles Vogel two Blimps and his last penny to leap to his death from the tower of the Empire State building. But he made it. Despondent over a heart condition, the 67-year-old hotel elevator operator spent his last $1.20 for a ticket yesterday to the 85th floor observation tower of the world's tallest building. The platform was crowded with Sunday sightseers. Vogel made his way unnoticed to the 34th Street side of the tower. No one paid any attention to him as he took off his coat and draped it neatly over the five-foot high ledge. Then he vaulted into space When horrified spectators peered over, they saw Vogol on the parapet only one floor below. He had broken his legs in the one-story fall As1 « thc y watched, he dragged himself painfully over the 30-inch ledge He plunged 750 feet to the 30th lloor setback and became the only man ever to leap twice irom the he threatened her with death if she did not give him $300, Sheriff Homer Hillard announced. He was arested at Clarksyile, where the woman said he had told her to bring the money. Mother Cabrini Becomes First U.S.Saint By ALDO FORTE Vatican City, July !1 — (UP) — The United Slates had its first citizen among the saints of the Roman Catholic church today after the canonization of Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini in one of the most colorful ceremonies of the church Pope Pius XI pronounced Mother Cabrini a saint at the climax of four and a half hours of pageantry in St. Peter's Basilica yesterday. His Holincs revealed that the feast day and day for the veneration of St. Frances Cabrini will be Dee. 22, the date of her death in Chicago in 117. Some 30,000 persons — cardinals and lesser prelates, members of the Vatican City and Rome diplomatic corps, many thousand members of religious orders, and the lay faithful — attended the historic ceremony beginning at 8 a. m. A fanfare of silver • trumpets echoed through the spacious Basilica to announce the canonization L< Mother Cabrini. Then the huge bron/.e bells of the church began pealing a mesage of rejoicing and those in the Holy City's 500 churches joined in while the pontiff recited a te dcaum of thanksgiving. As the throng left the Basilica, " small airohmc dinned low over St. Peters Square. Within 200 feet 01 tne neaus of the crowd it dropped memorial holy cards of the new saint with her picture and sacred inscriptions. Priests, children. American soldiers and high personages in civilian life rushed eagerly to gather the mementos. The ceremony, rich in pomp and pageantry, opened when the members of the Holy Congregation of Rites and other prelates, together with ;i!l the Cardinals in Rome, convened in a hall close to the Sistine chapel and formed a procession. The pope, dressed in flowing white robes and wearing the golden triple crown, a rived in the chapel, knelt nnd intoned the Avc Marie. Then he took his place on the Gestatorial chair, holding, a hand painted candle wrapped in a silken handkerchief. At 8 a.m. sharp the Papal pro- cesion entered the Basilica. Long lines of AiiBustine. Capuchin and Dominican Monks in brown, black and black and white casocks curried banners and croscs. The stately march continued with canon priests carrying banners, can- famed skyscraper. Vogel was identified by papers lound in his wallet. It contained no money. loading police to believe that he had spent his last penny ior a ticket to the observation tower and death. dies and crosses, secular nnd regular clergy, semlnarlnns and parish priests, priests of pontifical colleges and then basilicas of Rome. As the Palatine guard struck up a triumphal march at 8:40 a. m., the Pontiff in Mitre and flowing, robes entered, smiling and blessing the crowd. Thunderous a p- plansc filled the cathedral nnd reverberated throughout the 10 minutes the pope needed to reach the golden throne. The ceremony 1 n which the" church down through the ages has canonized its saints began at the main altar with the act of obedience by bishops, archbishops and cardinals, who came to the throne to kiss the Pontiff's foot, knee and hand. Mother Cnbrini was born at Snnt' Angelo dl Lodl, Italy, July 15, 1850, the youngest of 13 sisters. At the ago of 39 she landed for the first time in New York to begin the work for which she was canonized. She founded the ortior of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. She continued her work tire- lesly, opening schools, hospitals, and colleges in New York, New Orleans, Chicago, Seattle, Denver and Philadelphia, and later i n South America, Spain, France, Italy and England.

Now it's harder and harder for us to get materials for manufacturing and building. We aren't complaining for we are in the same boat as everyone else. But we thought you might like to know the supply situation on some of the biggest items in the telephone business. LEAD—There is a world shortage of it. Even when conditions here straighten out, it will be some time before adequate supplies are available. COPPER—It is in great demand but we shall probably have adequate supplies when the smelting,'refining,[and fabricating plants get going. TEXTILES—A serious shortage exists in cotton and synthetic yarns and fabrics. SKEL—Strikes in steel and coal industries have affected the supply in the face of unprecedented demand. RUBBER —Synthetics arc in fair supply, but natural rubber is on government allocation. LUMBER —It is scarce, due to both unusual demand and dislocation of the lumber trade. BRASS MILL PRODUCTS—These are used in telephone central office switches and other equipment. Supply will be short until disturbed conditions in the copper industry are settled, permitting brass mills to get back to full-scale production. It's a tough situation, but we aren't giving up, any more than you have given up trying to get butter or sugar or shirts. We're doing the best we can with what we've got and hoping these disturbed conditions will end, so that we can really go full speed ahead.

And all the holier-than-thou 1 ..osturmg by the participants as the battle, approached its climax cannot hide the fact that this important and highly debatable issue wound up as an unashabcd political squabble. The politicking started right after V-J Day with the imprudent ending of almost all rationing. It continued when wage ceilings were lifted and price ceilings continued. Both these '{csturcs were immediately popu- v Sir, but neither made good sense. > oisc-than-wartimc food shortages ;«nd "bulges" in the hold-the-linc policy were inevitable results. Meanwhile, representatives of industry and agriculture were putting the squeeze on some congressmen to end all price control. Production was still unsteady and demand was tremendous. And some of the boys seemed to be preparing for a killing under the slogan 01 "all the traffic will bear." That didn't make sense, either. But the pressure groups assured ihe /jongrcssmen, and the congress- }(f r ~ Assured themselves, that the •«iW of supply and demand would take care of everything— even though there was no promise of careful, responsible procedure for putting that law back into effect in a decidedly precarious time. The t "cubic which Mr. Truman, the affable ex-senator, had been having with his former colleagues came to a head in the OPA fight. Some of these colleagues seemed to have inserted certain provisions in their price-control extension bill Irom a desire to clip the wings of •/ipe "bureaucrats" close to the Pres-' 1 ''<' But the "bureaucrats" won. At' Jenst:. yjflir convictions,,, an.jj!-those -of their political supports, were closer to Mr. Truman's than were those of his party leader in Congress. So the President vetoed the bill. The rejected bill was nd legislative gem, and Mr. Truman undoubtedly won considerable labor and liberal support by his veto. But the existing price control bill was no gem, cither, at least not in its cnfr'-ccmcnl. And it -seems just as cfciv .in that Mr. Truman also lost some support by insisting on a continuation of that law or no law at all. "Those a., only the highlights of a light in which Congress as a whole emerged with a black eye —though many members probably made a hit back home by their stand on the measure. Mr. Truman while winning a round in his fight with Congress, is now being questioned on the wisdom of throwing ceilings, subsidies and all overside jv.-.withoul any warning—and trust"V\e, Congress to fish them out before any harm was done. Both sides added confusion to the fray by firing broadsides of propaganda at the spectators. The pumic was .led to believe that rising prices were the one cause,: rather than one symptom, ol inflation, and tha? the continuation or end of price controls (depending on whose propaganda you read) was the one answer and remedy for inflation. But if this political fight wound up as a draw in Washington, per- Ti'aps a winner can be found up in Albany, N. Y. Some lime ago Gov, Thomas K. Uewcy, anticipating the end (or collapse) of OPA, put a state rent-control law through the Republican legislature, and thereby made some political hay. Rent ceilings were one OPA provision which almost everyone approved and wanted kept, with excellent reason. There was mild panic elsewhere when OPA and its rent ceilings departed. But not in New York. The state lid was bolted f ist. And Governor Dewey, with ' rc-clcction campaign coming up and an eye on 1948, can probably be forgiven a little self-congratulation.

Zionists Blame Britain With Palestine Row Jerusalem, July 9 — (UP) — Peace and quiet would have prevailed in Palestine if the British government had proceeded Immediately to implement positive recommendations of the Anglo-American inquircy commission, Dr. Chaim wclzman, president of the World Zionist Organization, said today. In his first public address since publication of the Palestine report, Dr .Weizman said Jewish-Arab conflicts could have been averted in the Holy Land "notwithstanding (Prime Minister) Attlee's assertions to the contrary." "Why didn't Attlec ask himself why Hagana, whose services until after the war were commended, should have changed in his eyes?" Weizman declared. The Zionist leader spoke in Jerusalem as the Arab higher committed disclosed preparations to present the Arab side of the Palestine dispute to Pope Pius XII. The higher committee, the Arab executive body in Palestine, nominated four representatives to proceed to Rome for an audience with the pope. The nominations were in line with a committee resolution to place the Arab case before the pontiff. Jamal El Husseini. deputy chairman of the higher committee, continued his countrywide campaign to organize the Arab youth. He appealed to the Moslem brotherhood meeting in Jerusalem to "answer the national call." Arab leaders have called for a "holy war' against the Anglo-Americans if ihe recommendation for the admission of 100,000 Jews to Palestine is carried out. Informed sources said Dr. Chaim Weizmann, Zionist leader, would announce at a press conference \o- day that the Jews were opposed to the formation of a new Jewish agency more favorable to Britain. Ten days ago when the British opened a campaign against what they called "terrorism and anarchy" in Palestine, they seized the Jewish agency offices and arrested many of its leaders. Weizmann was reported to have the full support of the two most nowerful ionist parties in Palestine to maintain solidarity with tht • leaders oenina me barbed wire" "id relect British suggestions ior the reorganization of the Jewish dBoncy. All the synagogues throughout the Holy Land yesterday sounded the Ram's horn — a signal heard dnjy in times of dire distress. Brit- lsh'«tr6opS"»atiH,occupying- the. Je- ish agency building looked up as the horn sounded from the Yeshu- run synagogue next door. Sir J. V. Shaw, secretary of the Palestine government, was understood to have told Weizmann that the aresrted members of the agency would be released soon. Sh-aw called on Weizman, and was reported to have told him that others seized in the British campaign would be charged with specific crimes or released. Gen. Sir Miles C. Dcmpsoy, new British commander in chief, arrived at Lydda o Trieste Bitter OverBritish Treatment Trieste, July 9 — (UP(—Trieste was tense today as ill feeling mount cd between residents and vlio British occupation troops as a result of the rampage in which 1,000 British soldiers Deal up a score of Italian youths and smashed five Italian cafes last night. None of those beaten was hospitalized by a number of soldiers suffered severe arm and iace cuts from broken glass in the smashed shops. The troops lashed at Italian youths with their heavy leather military belts and the fighting went on until military police intervened to restore order. The British counter-demonstration followed an outburst in which a leftist crowd smashed several windows and fought briskly until American military police restored order. The British troops, stung by thn jeers and insults heaped on them by demonstrators in several days of sporadic violence, were itching for action. They were particularly keen to avenge the undressing of three of their girl acquaintances by jealous Trieste youths. The violence began when the troops came out of Excelsior theater on the Via Ventisetlembre. Incensed by a taunt from a crowd ot Italians, the soldiers charged them and kept up their attack until military police intervened. —— o . Arrest Threats Made to Him. Malone Asserts Forrest City, July fl—l/Pj—James M. Malone continued his campaign for governor today after charging in a campaign speech here )ast night he hud been threatened with arrest and that several "prominent citizens' 'had refused lu introduce him. The threatened arrest grew out of use of sound trucks in behalf of Malone, the candidate said. He did not specify who threatened him. Malone called on Governor Laney to make a "thorough investigation" of the reported 3100,000 Blackfish Lake Club robbery, of which local officers and state police said they have received only newspaper accounts. Sixteenth century ladies in Italy customarily carried mirrors in their hands and hung them from their costumes. Little Rock Hotels Under Inspection Little Rock, July 9 —f/P)—Teams of firemen and insurance men began an inspection of Greater Little Rock hotels for fire and other hazards today. The project, which will cover the entire state within the next (i days, is sponsored by the Arkansas Hotel Association and the Arkansas field men's club, an organization of insurance men. Results of the Little Rock inspection will b o tabulated in about « week and hotel owners will be advfted of any improvements recommended by the inspectors. The state fire marshal's office is assisting in the project and engineering service has been furnished by th cArkansas Fire Prevention Bureau. Surprises May Appear in Poll Tax Hearing Hoi Springs, July 9 —(/P)— Taking of testimony was resumed in the poll tax fraud suit in federal court here today with rumors circulating that both sides'were preparing to introduce some surprises. Under direction of Prosecuting Attorney Candidate Sidney Mc- Malh, the GI slate of candidates opposing the forces of Mayor Leo McLaughlin was expected to seek to prove thai voting rights under challenged poll tax receipts were "in alphabetical order." The GI candidates claim thai McLaughlin lieutenants oblnincd 3,825 poll lax receipts through illegal "authorizations" under' the block purchase system. The defense was reported ready to offer testimony that aulhoriza- tions which were shown to be in identical handwriting wore merely "check lists' 'bul Mayor McLaughlin declined comment. McMath and a staff of GI candidates and volunteers worked throughout the night examining carbon copies of actual poll tax receipts which were turned over to them yesterday on orders of Federal Judge John E. Miller, who is presiding at the trial of the suit. In the parade of wilnesses called by Ihe plaintiffs all but two of sixteen who testified this morning said they had not signed au- Ihorizalions for purchase of receipts In their names. Also among today's witnescs were eight of Ihe defendants, Mrs. Fannie McLaughlin, sister-in-law of the mayor; Elmer Walters, George Young, deputy constable, Bill Abbott, policeman; George, Pakis. operator of .the Blue Hibbon club; Frank Grant, deputy city clef*; Rums Manning, i.ormer cily fireman and Erb Wheatley, operator of Ihe Reno club. They said Ihey had obtained their authorization blanks irom the maypr's secretary but all testified they had purchase receipts in ihe proper way and had delivered and collected for them .crom the owners as required by law. o Airline Merger Would Aid Two State Cities Washington, July 9 — (/P)—Merger of Mid-Continent Airlines with American Airlines would result in annual saving to the federal gov- crnmenl of more than a million dollars, Howard C. Woslwood, counsel for American, loday iulcl Iho Civil Aeronautics Board. Wcslsvood asked the board to disregaru an adverse recommendation by its examiner and, instead, to grant Ihe application for merger of Hie two lines. He said savings to the taxpayers would result, if the merger is' approved, through the lowering of Mid-Continent's mail pay rale, now $4.22 a lone mile, to American's rate of 4!) cents a tune mile. In addition, he said, i'are reductions on Mid-Continent would run as high as 22 percent and average 18 proecnt. "The merged airlines will be able to provide for all important cities now on the Mid-Continent system a much more efficient passenger, airmail and freight service through increased frequencies of flights," Westwood declared. "Some of the major points to benefit would be Minncapolis-Sl. Paul, Tulsa, Kansas City, St. Louis, New Oilcans, Shrevcport, Des Moines, Kurt Smith, Rochester, Sioux City and Texarkana." Only arguments today by airlines counsel is the ia;-t phase of the merger proceeding ue.fore the board makes its decision. Woslwood asserted that if the merger is not .approved and Mid- Continent "is allowed to stand alone." there is "every reasonable inditaliun thai Mid-Continent will remain perhaps the most heavily subsidized of Ihe trunk line carriers." Unification of the two lines, he said, has been approved by stockholders ol both lines and no minority interests'-oppose it. Isolationist Loses Election in Minnesota and Defeat Bolsters Stassen's Hopes Minneapolis, July 9—(UP)—Sen. Henrik Sliipstead, 65 year old Isolationist senator from Minnesota, in office since 1922, today conceded his defeat in the Republican senatorial primary to Gov. Edward J. Thye. "Gov. Thye is apparently winning the nomination. His election seems assured, I send him my congratulations. It is a great privilege to serve the splcnded people of Minnesota in the Senate. I am deeply grateful to the people of the state to have had the privilege of serving them for 24 years," Senator Shfps.lead said in statement at 7:24 a .m. a brief Thye was supported by Harold E. Slasscn and his victory bolstered Stassen's 1948 presidential hopes and was considered an endorsement by Minnesota voters of the United Nations principle. Wi th 1,341 nrenincls out of the 3,707 reported, Thye had 122,119 vo'ns to /4.131 for rfhipstead. , Coincidentally, Thye's running alf ;mct the other Stassen-backed candidate, Luther W. Youngdahl appeared assured of Ihe Republican gubernatorial nomination. With J..MI p -ffMncts. he had 129,437 votes to GO, 275 for Hjalmar Peterson. Peterson haq conducted a par- jticularly vitriolic campaign against • the administration of former Gov ernor Stascn and Thye. The vote reflected the state's opposition to the clearly-cut isue of isolationism as presented by Shipstead. The 65-year-old senator, a fixture in Congress since 1922 ,\vas one of two members of the Senate to vote against ratification of the United Nations charter. Sen. William Langer of North Dakota was the other. Shlpslead criticized the U. N. as an idealistic "super-slate" and declared his opposition lo the British loan during his campaign. He had accused Stasscn of state "bossism" and of being a representative for eastern capital. Thye, on the other hand, vigorously urged support of the United Nations and favored international cooperation. He had been conceded the edge over Shipstead in metropolitan precincts but not in the rural areas where Shipstead was considered all-powerful, However, even rural precincts were giving Thye an increasing lead, reflecting the groundwork which Thye, a succesful farmer himself, had put in during the past four years as governor. Shipstead lirst was elected to the Senate in 1922 as the nominee of the old Farmer-Labor -party. During his third term, he switched Khi^allegiance to the GOP and in 'he Repub — Urges Senate to Let OPA 'Sleep' Awhile By JACK BELL.

They didn't get much cooperation from the 40-year-old multimillionaire airplane designer and movie maker, who crashed Sunday night on a test flight of his new XI-11, army aerial reconnaissance plane. He wanted to turn his oxygen tent into a business office. A Hughes spokesman said there was little change in his condition, "either up or down' '—and that his condition still was critical.

Production Credit Loan Higher Than Any Other Time Little Rock, July 3—(yp)—Produc- tion Credit Association loans were higher during the first six months of 1946 than in any other year because of the higher cost of farm operations, C. R. Arnold of Washington, National Production Credit commissioner, said today. Arnold was principal speaker at a session of the three day meeting of fourteen Arkansas associations. • He said there had been an increase in the number of loans but that they had been paid off rapidly. Outlining the 12 year history of the production- credit movement Arnold said there were 375,000 stockholders in the United States and its growth was due to the interest of local directors and the fact that the organization is decentralized.

Jap Emperor Attended Meet on Manchuria By TOM LAMBERT Tokyo, July 9 — (#)— Emperor Hirohito was in silent attendance at a 1931 privy council meeting during, which it was decided to "paciiy and occupy" Manchuria, the international military tribunal heard today. The prosecution in the trial of former Premier Hideki Tojo and 26 other accused war plotters disclosed this in reading prison interrogations of ex-General Sadao Araki, : .one-tiroe war. .minister and now ohe'b'f the defendants. Emperor Hirohito knew about the occupation' plan, Araki answered when asked if the monarch had approved the scheme. Araki said he himself decided soon after becoming war minister that the four north China provinces (Mgn- churia) should be occupied by Japanese troops. Earlier the prosecution introduced three telegrams sent the morning after the "Mukden incident" by the Japanese consul at Mukden to the then foreign minister Baron Kujuro Shidehara, at Tokyo, blaming the Kwantung Army for the affair and asking the government to halt the aggrcsion. Former Maj. Gen. Ryukichi Ta. naka, who was a Kwantung army officer, concluded his testimony by saying anti-Communism was adopted as the slogan for advances of the Japanese armies into Manchuria. Peasants of Luzon Victims Says Leader July 9 —Ml- Hi* HAP Leader Luis Taruc asserted today his armed peasants were the victims, not the aggressors, in cen- Iral Luzon's latest bloody fighting which has resulted in 159 deaths. laruc urged an impartial in- vesligalion to determine responsibility, and suggested U. S. Supreme Court Justice Frank Murphy as mediator. Murphy is due here July <iH, accompanying the body of former President Manuel Quezon. Ihe provost marshal general of the Philippine Army threatened, meanwhile, lo use the "full force of the military" to stop Ihe slrife. Manila officials conceded privately the situation was "explosive." Taruc, who arranged a press conference to explain his group's posilion, said the governors of Pampanga and Nueva Ecija provinces, appointed by President Roxas, are "sworn enemies" of the peasant movement and have turned their military police loose for punitive raids on peasant villages. The peasants, for self-preservation, he said, are fleeing into ihe remotest areas, and lie asked newsmen to note that most reports of clashes come from these sections of the country. Taruc said he and other Huk leaders would go personally among the peasants to persuade them to lay down Dieir arms if given adc- quale guarantees against assault by MPs. - o -- Creighead Co-op Seek to Serve More Territory Little Rock.

KELLY Washington, July 0 — (/pj— Army contract renegotiators testified today they trimmed the war profits ?L^'V Illinois munitions maker in 1943,from 20.4 to 9.3 per cent partly by refusing to okay big Washington entertainment bills, boosted' rent fees and claims for "abandoned" machinery. George H. Knutson, member of the War Department price adjustment board, told the Senate War Investigating Committee, that the adjusted profits, before taxes, for the Erie Basin Metal : Products Company were cut from $1,776,000 to_ 506,000 on that year's renegotiable busines. The Erie:Basin Company is one? -i a 8roup of war corporations built up during the war years by Murray and Henry Garsson, Y. J. Weis and. A. B. Gellman who- M ve j bee", accused by Chairman Mead D-NY) of "war profiteering. The investigation had disclosed their efforts had powerful Washington support. The army renegotiators were called as witnesses as the committee delayed until this afternoon an appearance by Secretary of War Patterson. The members plan to seek an explanation from Patterson on how and why the Illinois combine won more than $78,000,000-in war contracts. They also want to know why one of its plants got the Army-Navy "E" award over objections of the Chicago ordnance office. Knutson said that renegotiators found, in examining the contracts of five of the corporations alone, among them- Erie basin, a total of $3,520,000 in "excessive profits" on renegotiable business amounting • to approximately 24,000,000. • —o , . Big Four Agree on Meet, Turn to Germany By JOSEPH DYNAN Paris, July 9 —(/P)—The foreign ministers council, turning to the German question , after , -finallyI breaking a four-day 'deadlock on tne caiung of a 2i nation peace • .——• — v-w» -«*. -it kt>?o.i.ti a '•'policy * ward the Reich. ' • The log-jam ended last^ night with 'the adoption of a French compromise providing that only a few suggested rules of procedure be sent out with invitations to the peace conference, scheduled t o open July 29 in Luxembourg Palace. This was considered a victory Xor the United States and Britain, which had opposed Russians demands that tne invitations be accompanied by mandatory rules of procedure. Under the compromise, France was authorized to send out invitations today to the nations which will draft peace treaties with Italy, Hungary. Romania, Bulgaria and Finland. The suggesed rules of procedure will be drafted this morning by the deputy ministers and are slated to be ratified by the ministers this afternoon. The ministers then are scheduled to ratify their final agreements on Italian reparations, thus clearing the slate for discussion of the German question. Speculation on the nature of the "important declaration" on Russia's policy toward Germany ran from one extreme t o another. Some sources said R'lssia planned to offer to join Britain, France and the. United States in establishing a central administrative organization within a federalized Germany. Others said the Russians would denounce Britain and the United States for conducting "secret negotiations behind the Soviet Union's back." Tass, the official Russian news agency, has accused the two western allies of engaging in private conversations on Germany t .o which .Foreign Minister V. M. Molqtov "for some reason" was not invited. American delegation sources denied that tri-jower "secret talks" on Germany were going on in Paris "lo the exclusion of Russia." French, British and American coal technicians are negotiating to increase Germany's coal output, they said, but U. S. Anir bassad.or, Alcxandre Bpgomolov, advised on the progress of these talks. Diplomats speculating on the reason for the change in the Russian demand for prearranged, mandatory rules of procedure ior the peace conference said Molotov might have received new instructions from Moscow or that the other foreign ministers might have brought such pressure to bear on him to agree to presentation of the rules as only recommendations thai he was forced to yield.
