"The sooner the world learns that, the better," added Austin, who has been named by President Truman to represent PIN-WORMS At last- A Real Treatment! Anyone who has ever had Pin-Worms knows how tormentlnK nml embarrnssins this infection can be, nnd how hard it may be.to deal, with the creatures* once they get & foothold inside the body. Today, thanks to a special, medically rec- ognised drug (gentiiin violet), a hinhly effective treatment has been made possible. This druff is the vital ingredient in P-W, the Pin-Worm tablets developed in the laboratories of Dr. D. Jaync £ Son. P-W tablets are small and easy to take, and they aet»hnrBpeciaI wny to remove Pin-Worms. •So'watch out for the warning sicns that may mean Pin-Worms in your child or yourself:—especially the aggravating rectal itch. And don't delay. Ask your drugsist for JAYNE'S P-W right away, and follow the directions. Satisfaction guaranteed, or your money back. It's easy to remember: P-W for Pin-Worm*! | this country on the United Nations Security Council. Thus Austin forecast the same sort of firm United States stand in the U. N. Council that Vnndenberg said Secretary of State Byrnes took at the Paris Foreign Ministers' conference. The Vermont senator's declaration came in approving what he called the "frankness" of Vanden- betg's appraisal of the accomplishments nnd failures of the Big Four meeting. Noting that there was "appalling disagreement" among the major powers over the immediate -and long-range future of Germany, Vandenberg called on Russia to help replace with dependable friendship the distrust and suspicion he said now existed in Wash- in"*on .nnd Moscow. The Michigan senator added in « formal report to his colleagues yesteiday tnat the Soviets must learn that the Americans "cannot be driven, coerced or pressured' into decisions and "will not bargain in humans rights and fundamental liberties anywhere on earth.' Endorsing this. Austin told a reporter he believes a candid discussion of the difficulties the American delegation encountered in Paris will help solidify public opinion. "I think the public announcement that it is not our purpose to yield to coercion is very important.' he said. "The sooner the world understands that, the better.' ' Senator Edwin C. Johnson (D-| Colo) said he thought the Byrnes j and Vandenberg reports had'gone, a long way to line up the Senate' solidly behind the course tho secretary of state has pursued thus Red Naval Man Acquitted of Charges Seattle, ulv 17 —(IP)— Russian Naval Lt. Nicholai G. Redin was acquitted by a federal court jury today on espionage and conspiracy charges. The 30-year-old former Soviet purchasing commission representative here was found innocent on government charges that . he purchased secrets about the U. S. S. Yellowstone, a new type destroyer tender, from Herbert G. Kennedy, shipyard engineer. The jury of seven men and live women brought in the verdict on the 22nd da" of the trial. They had beqn out since 1:18 p. m. (PST) yesterday. Indictments against Redin accused him on four counts of espionage and on one count with conspiring with "unknown persons" to obtain secret information. The jury had actually deliberated about S 1-2 hours. After the verdict, Defense Attorney Irvin Goodman told the court Redin would like to sav a jew words. The Russian officer stepped forward and in .:\ low voice, smiling slightly, said: "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, your honor I'd like to thank you for this fair trial in these United States of America."

Senator Pepper (D-Fla), who was critical of a previous post- conference report by Vandenberg earlier in the year," said he regarded the Michigan sentaor's new statement as "moderate." . "But he is making the unquestioned assumption that we are for eastern and western Europe," uiou, with uie imes drawn between eastern o a n western Europe," Pepper said. "Our position ought to be that of arbiter. :.iot a participant in the age old struggle between Great Britain and Russia for power." Meanwhile, diplomatic authorities here said United States efforts to get an early peace treaty for Austria appear to have met a stonewall of: Russian opposition. This is regarded as a serious block along what Byrnes calls "the road back to peace". For it means, these officials say, that there' is not prospect for early wilhdrawal of occupation troops from southern Europe.

He yrcienls them in a mixture of 1 irutns, naif-truths and glaring omissions. This metnod ol attacK is a familiar technique of propaganda. It might impress Mr. EhreiiDurg's Russian audience, but its inconsistencies will be apparent even to the casual American reader. Mr. Ehrenburg proceeds from Iwo patently false assumptions. One is that oil talk of Russian expansion and aggression is a malicious fabrication of American new- 'spaper;:. The other is Ihal Ihese newspaper "allacks" are directed at the Russian people. No one, including members of the American press, would deny that I lie noble spirit and intent of press freedom is occasionally abused here. No one would deny that Amciican newspapers have sometimes printed deliberately biased articles about Russia—both pro and con. But Mr. Ehrenburg ascribes all Russo-American discord to our .lewspapei s. Nol once in his whole ^'article does he mention either the Russian or American government. He would have us believe that the sole cause of misunderstanding is a war-mongcring attack by American newspaper proprietors (whom lie refers to as "slanderers" .auel our "worst citizens"; upon the Russian citizenry. He waves aside the "iron cur- lain" and says thai "actually ttttss- sia is hidden from Americans by a smoke screen of lies, and this sci ecu is the creation of many - "American newspapers." *• Mr. I'lhrenburg fails to note that the majority of American writers who have visited his country refer to the friendliness, likeablcncss and industry of the Russian people, and to their obviously sincere, though ill-informed, good will toward Americans. When he charges that "il is low anel criminal lo asciibe to our people aggressive designs," it seems lo have escaped his attention that our "slanderous' 'press has nol accused Ihe Russian masses of any such lliing. JJ The writer admits thai his people know little auout American Jae, bul this he ascribes lo lack of paper, nol lack o!' interest. However, he slates that "never in cm- press can one find slanders against the American people; we know lil- lle, but what we know is the truth." That, of course, is more clis- lingcuuous double talk. The Russian newspapers' quarrel is with our I economy and policies. Soviet journ-! als doubtless pity the American I masses' "exploitation by monopol-j istic capital" (pe-ihaps that's the S ••truth' 'of which Mr. Ehrenburg spoke so confidently i just as ours pity the regimentation and ignorance of the average Russian. Probably Mr. Klirenburg has been as distressed by American impressions of Russia as we are by liis nf Ihe United Slates. There is a tendency by writers of both countries lo ascribe spotless virtue to their own land and all the vices in the other. Mr. Khrenbuig has indulged this tendency lo the limit. The unfortunate result is that nJie ha.- offended Anirrie-r.us' good sen:'e Ijy disjiilion and weasel words jiii.sing a:* iaetual observation, and ha.-, clone nothing to bring us i'li.'.-ei !" an understanding of the Russian pcoi'le and their gov- ernment''.; iiojieie.-, and intentions, or tu let us ace a friendly America UiiL'ii^h friendly Russian e>es.

CIO Demands Plan to Prevent inflation and at Same Time , Calls for New Wage Increases By JAMES MARLOW Washinglon, July 19 — (If)— Some of the CIU program for preventing inflation is clear, and the timing is obvious. But it isn'l all clear. This is clear: The CIO says there is a "demand and need for immediate svage increases." So it this i wants raises. The reason: The CIO says living crisis have gone up since Ihe big CIO unions signed xheir contracts giving them wage increases a few months ago. Up how much? The CIO says living costs have gone up 40 per cenl President Tru- in tv.'o months. The CIO wants man right now to call a conference of labor and industry and lor a double reason: 1. To give "full and official recognition" to labor's demand for wage increases. 2.

Murray Garsson, an active figure in the combine, once served as an investigator for a House committee, headed by Sabath, which inquired inlo bondholders protective committees. Sabath said he thought perhaps he had played pinochle only once with Murray Garsson and two or three times with Freeman. He said cither he or former Rep.

Confused and sometimes contradictory statements made it plain thr.l somctning had gone wiong in what had been described as negotiations with the Russians for the release of the men. Capt. Har.old Cobin of Newark, N. J., an attache of the Berlin documents center, and Lt. George Wyatt, 1045 graduate of West Point, were the missing men. Speculation increased that they were "permanently missing." Many quarters ieared they never would be heard from aga'in. Other sources, however, maintained hope thai despite a Russian denial, Wyatt ana Cobin were the "two Americans" persistently reported to be held by the Soviets in a closely guarded room at nearby Potsdam. A high U. S. military government official, in the latest of a running scries of assertions regarding Wyatt and Cobin, said: "Frankly we are baffled. The only information we had to go on was from a usually reliable source which placed our officers as prisoners of the Russians at Potsdam. "Yet Soviet officials 'on their woid of honor' have declared they lees lor economy." Righl there isn't elrar. How can an employer-labor conference, even though the government takes part in it, guarantee any kind ,-jf stabilized economy when: 1. There may be no OPA. Wilh- oul an OPA, the government can't control prices. 2. Manufacturers, the big employers of organized labor, are the ones who told Congress Ihey wanted no price controls on their products. Without price control during the war and up until last June 30, prices and wages went up. The manufacturers told Congress an end of price control on their stuff would encouragp them to produce more goods. They said prices would go up but full down. Ihat when production was in swing prices would come They didn't attempt to say how high prices would go or just when they'd start coming down. 1. Prices, and living cosls, have gone way up since organized labor gol its raises a few months ago. 2. Therefore, labor is entitled to By FRANCIS Washinglon M.

If employers agreed to that, wouldn't they then want to raise prices to make up for the new wage increase, thus keeping wages and prices unbalanced. Many of the price increases OPA granted before it died resulted from higher pay won by unions. But the timing of this CIO statement is something lo think about. H comes jusl when Congress is on the last lap ot turning out an OPA bill, a bill which right now seems pretty weak. So the CIO statement can be in- lerprelcd as a warning to Congress to turn out a strong OPA— or there's danger ahead. This is borne out by oilier parts of Ihe CIO slalemenl, all clear: 1. It calls upon Congress "in a final plea" to produce a workable OPA. 2. If Congress turns oul an OPA which makes a "sham or pretense of price control," the CIO wants President Truman to veto it. 3. The CIO wants the voters to know which congressmen weakened OPA, or scuttled it, and take it oul on them in Ihe congressional elcdlions. 4.

"It doesn't look so good," Barkley lold reporters, when asked about chances of ,an agreement of the Senate-approved measure which adrrnnistralion lieulenanls are seeking to revise to meet reported objections of Presidenl Truman. Barkley said a proposal drafted by a subcommittee headed by Senator Radcliffe (D-MD) to vide lor Hie restoration of ceilings on major items exempted by the Senalc was in such "rough form" that the committee made no progress in considering it. He hinted .at a possible compromise by which the decision on r~- turning commodilics to OPA control might be given to the Civilian Production Administration. He said ihis would eliminate contentions that the OPA would be arbi- taary in its decisions. The prospects for an' OPA revival hit a new low as the CIO called for a national buyers' strike and a new round of wage increases. Berkley talked to reporters after the conferees ended a morning sesssion. He said Ihey would meci again Jater in the day ior another try al an agreement. The Republican-dominated Senale subcommittee's proposal on controls provides :for a board with higncr authority lhan OPA to determine whether such important iood items as meat, eggs and milk could be put back under price ceilings al a later elate. The Senale had voted to remove controls on those foods.

While Mr. Truman's personal political fulure thus may be at slake, he lold his news conference yeslerday no specific plans for a speaking tour had be'en made. He said he is willing to help'out-Dem- acrats where he can. He did not know, he added in response to a question, whether he would speak in New York. There Senator James Mead may be the Dewey, the 1944 GOP presidential Democratic nominee for governor in a contest with Gov. Thomas E choice. Mead, still coy about the governorship race, told a reporter"If I were a candidate this year. should certainly feel privileged have the president of the United States speak in my behalf." But some other legislators, with IIFU dcreat of Senator Burton K. Wheeler fresh in mind, were not so sure that presidential aid is the best politics! medicine.

O'Connor (D-NY): •, ''. With the exception of Montana and Missouri, where Mr. Truman has announced his support of Senator Briggs and his opposition to the renomination of Rep. Roger C. Slaughter, the president has stayed out of the primaries. As f9r his comment of the approaching general elections and slaughter, COP Chairman Recce said in a statement: "Mr. Truman's decision to rrwke a political stump-speaking tour this fall shows a realization on his part Ihal Ihe fortunes of his parly are on the down grade and his allempt- ed resort lo ho 'purge' is proof Ihat his party is still operating on a rule or ruin basis, with the radical group continuing in control." Reece added that any time spent on a political tour by the uresi- dcnl "could be spent more advantageously if he remained in Washington and attempted'to bring some degree of order out of the organized chaos which exists in the federal government today." It was on the basis of Slaughter's opposition to his legislative proposals that Mr. Truman said he had aclcd to lino tip Ihe Pendcr- gasl group in supporl of Enos Ax- lell against Slaughter. Politicians thought the results in that race August 6 might have weighty effect on how much activity the president displays in the general election campaign. In a radio address, at Kansas 'City last night. Slaughter declared: "The president of the United Slates cast the issues today when he said 'if Slaughlcr is right, I am wrong.' I accept that challenge with all of its implications, including a fighl to determine the fulure course of Ihe Democratic party."
