Aug. 1 — (/I 1 )— The government is trying lo reach a decision today on whether to allow price increases of a penny a loaf on bread and about a cent a pound on flour. Top OPA and Agriculture Department officials conferred on ihis as the new price decontrol board pushed plans to start public hearings by August 12 on this issue: Should price ceilings be restored August 20 on meats, dairy products, grains, cotton seed and soy beans? Chairman Roy L. Thompson announced last night that as soon as the board has decided this, it will tackle the question of whether controls should go back on eggs, poultry, tobacco and petroleum. Ceilings cannot be re-invoked on these latter items before August :!0 in any event, nor thereafter with- oul consent of the board. As for the possibility of higher bread and flour prices, an official in a position to know told a reporter privately that a boost in ceilings has been recommended to OPA Chief Paul Porter by his aides. However, even if Porter concurs, the approval of the Agriculture Department is required to pi". increases on these food items into effect. The recommendation submitted to Porter is based on a tentative decision against roslorating the flour subsidy which lasped July 1 .In this decision OPA officials took Ihe stand that the subsidy could be paid again only if the decontrol board voles lo restore ceilings on wheat. Porter and the Agriculture Department must review this decision Ion. The subsidy held down retail prices a cent a loaf on bread and about a cent a pound on flour. Since il lapsed (here has been no upward adjustment of ceilings lo compensate millers for loss of the gf'ornmont payments. The subsidy amounted to $1.03 on each 100 nounds of flour. OPA said. Officials predicted that any ceiling price increase may amount to about $1.11 to offset a rist in wheat costs since grain controls expired. In announcing August 12 as the tentative date (or the start of pub- lie hearings, Thompson said \he decontrol board will give representatives of agriculture, industry and consumer groups an opportunity to present their \ r icws on whether controls should be restored on meats, dairy products .grains. cot- Ion seed and soy beans. The board plans to hold separate hearings on commodities in each of these categories. Thompson said rules of procedure will be announced by next Tues.clay. • POSTMASTER APPROVED Washington, Aug. 1—(,1>i— Nomination of Gratia M. Vinson as postmaster at Armorcl.

Aug 1 — t/P)— The Yugoslav delegation served notice at the peace conference today that it would not accept the compromise solution on Trieste. The foreign ministers council recently voted to establish Trieste as international territory under United Nations authority. The U. N. has not accepted the responsibility, however. Edward Kardcl.i. Yugoslav vice premier and spokesman for Premier Marshal Tito's peace conference delegation, attacked the so- called "French line" of demarcation between Italy and Yugoslavia. "It abandons large, secl ; ons of our people to the oppression of Italy," he said. "It takes from Yugoslavia large sections of Istria. The so-called French line has replaced an ethnic line in contradiction to all ethnic Jacts.' Yugoslavia, Kardclj iold a plenary session of the conference, suf fared 400,000 dead "against Italy alone." Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov agreed today to a Greek proposal to open the peace confer once to all "questions pertaining to the draft of peace treaties." In supporting the Greek motion, Molotov proposed that the rules of procedure of the conference be amended to include the statement that: "The conference may place on its agenda at the request of any delegation any question pertaining to Ihe draft of peace treaties." The motion was made by Constantin Aghnides, Greek ambassador to London, who said that the conference should be tnrown open to any "connected" peace question not now on the agenda. Before Molotov spoke the motion was op posed by Mosha Plajadi, Yugo slav official, and Dmitri Z. Man uilsky, member of the Ukranian delegation, who said the proposa was a 'disguised form' of bringing up the disputed question of a sim pie majority as against a two thirds majority rule for voting in the conference. The Greek proposal asked tha the decision of placing any new matter on the agenda be by a sim pie majority vote. Manuilsky said article 18 of th< United Nations charter required ; two-thirds majority ior voting. Dr Herbert V. Evatt, Australian min ister of external affairs and chain pion of the simple majority, 7 Bro posal, said that Manuilsl!y' 5 s''inte f r ruplion of the U. S. article wa faulty. "This is only a recommending body and I think it should consider everything and send it back to the final body—the lour ministers," said Evatt. The adoption of the two-thirds rule seemed assured, however, thus probably restricting the major decisions of the 21-nation body, lo those matters on which the big four nave been unable to aaroe. The debate on the question of opening the conference 10 various peace treaty questions occurred at a meeting of the rules committee, U. S. Secretary of Stale James F. Byrnes was expected to inform the committee that the United Stales gave qualified support lo the two- thirds proposal. Molotov's amendment permitting the conference io disci'ss iill questions pertaining to the peace treaties was adopted in a harmonious atmosphere. A Netherlands proposal ihat each country be admitted on an equal .looting lo all conference committees was defeated, 11 to n. in the first public roll call in the rules committee. The United Slates abstained. .Russia, Yugoslavia, Poland .Czechoslovakia, the Ukraine, White Russia, France, Britain, India, Norway and New Zealand Voted "nay.' Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China. Kthiopia, Greece, the Netherlands, South Africa and Australia voted "yes." The British, in opposing the Dutch proposal, said the rights of every nation would be safeguarded by final consideration of wvy resolution on the general session floor. The French said having all committees composed of delegate:; from all 21 nations would be too cumbersome. Meanwhile, an Australian source said .Ihat delegation might question Soviet Russia's claim '"> $1 put).000,000 reparations as written into Ihe present drafts. The Australian source said Evatl probably would propose a fact finding committee to get a bill of particulars showing now Soviet Russia arrived at her claim for damages. o JAP)—Means Associated Press JNEA1—Means Ncwsoaoer Enterorlse Ass'n.

ARBOGAST Washington, Aug. 1— (/P)—The $3,000,000.000 GI terminal pay bil headed ;'or President Truman's desk today as House members laic plans to get around its "paymcni in bonds' provision early next year. The measure cleared both chamber of Congress yesterday. Acting last, the House contented itself :"or the nrcsent with denouncing the Senate - inspired bond - payment plan. Members were afraid to reject it lest the legislation get lost in controversy during the closing davs of the session. But the chamber left no doubt regarding its future plans. From both sides of the aisle came demands that the new Congress, convening next January, enact a bill permilling holders of the bonds to cash them immediately instead of waiting the required five vears from date of discharge. Republican le'ader Joseph W. Martin, Jr., of Massachusetts Jf\jned Damocratic- members' in eYilitizirig' the bond provision. Many called at discrimination against GI's, since officers have been receiving their terminal pay in cash. President Truman himself advanced the bond plan, describing it as less-inflationary than straight cash payments. But Rep .Gavin (R-Pa) told his colleagues the ad- minislralion had not been concerned about inflation when it backed the $3,750,000,000 loan to Britain. Rep. Dwight L. .Rogers (D-Fla), co-aulhor of the furlough pay bill and leader of the fight Ihat brought it to its first vote in the House last June 11, announced he would introduce on the urst day of the new Congress a bill io allow ihe bonds to be converted into cash immediately. No one knows exactly how much the legislation wil'l cost. However Rep. Thomason (D-Tcxi, who helped write the compromise after Ihe Scnalc rejected the House straight cash plan, estimated ihe sum at about ¥3,000,000,000. That would be approximately 800,000,000 Jess than the World War I bonus is estimated io have cost. A bill to make 2,432,000,000 in casli and bonds available at once has passed the House and is awaiting Senate approval. Thomason said 16,000,000 past and present enlisted personnel would receive an average of :?]()(! each, with the interest on the bonds raising ihc overall cost. All enlisted personnel who have served at any lime since September H, 1939, in the army, the navy, Iho coast guard or ihe marine corps would receive the payments, piovidcd they had accrued furlough time at the lime of iheir -|is- chargc. Payments would be at ihc rate of two and one-half days a month less furlough time actually received. But no one 'could be paid for more than 120 days, regardless of how much time he had .'iceruecl.

Crump, Shelby county political leader told the United Press today that lie "welcomed PAC-CIO watchers" al voting stations, and attributed several reported ejections lo "ovcr-zealousncss" on the part of both sides. Crump's statement was made after two complaincs of ejections wore received at headquarters of Ihc Political Action Committee, but. before Cameraman George Pierce of the Memphis Press-Scimitar had his camera smashed in front of one of the cily's voting places. Referring to the stationing of "passive" watchers at voting polls, Crump said: "They c; n have all the watchers they want. We welcome -hem. Remember, we have 12G ~-oting places in this county (Shelby). Perhaps some of our friends and Ihe watchers became over-zealous in their election efforts.' Crump 33id that election officers at voting places were advised to permit "any and all watchers." The PAC headquarters under the direction of Chairman R.H. Ronton, reported that two of their poll watchers, identified as R.L. Whitl and W. S. Peas, were "grabbed and pushed" into Ihe streets. After one and a half hours later A. T.

Carmack, son of a former •••lator, who previously lost a senatorial race after Shelby county votes were counted. Incumbent Jim McCord, also wilh Crump's blessing, faced former Gov. Gordon Browning in the race for the Tennessee chief executive's spot. Browning, an army officer still on military duty in Germany, was chosen governor in 1936 with Crump's support. Two years later after a political ways-parting with the Shelby county leader, he was defeated for re-election. McKcllar, president of the U.S. Senate, and chairman of its all- imporlanl Appropriations Committee, did Hllle campaigning. He maintained that the "only issue" was the fact that Carmack was backed by the "communistic" CIO- PAC.

S.' Marines, it was learned today. Lin Piao expressed his conviction several days ago in Harbin, shortly before three Marines were killed and 12 wounded when iheir truck convoy was ambushed between Peiping and Tientsin. A transcript of his three-hour soecch reached Peiping today by plane. The Communist general apparently spoke extemporaneously during a meeting of the People's Political Congress in Harbin. He described Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek's central government troops as "half Am«" % ican- ized" and asked, rhetorically, if the "Foreign Reactionaries" would continue "to give the Kuomintang arms and garrison the cities for them." ••' ,,f "If this intervention does not •Tc'ea-se.-W-he'* declared, "civil Avar will be rifd in China and extend to threaten the peace o f the world."

Army officials said the discovery at dawn today was in addition to the supplv of arms :"ound yesterday in Tel. Aviv's great synagogue. The entire Holy Land seemed on the verge of martial law as the 20,000 British soldiers ranged through the Jewish community, questioning all residents and checking identifications. Stringent measures were being considered by the government io end illegal immigration. Another refugee ship — the third within a week — was sighted off the coast. Royal Navy lookouts identified the illegal ship as the "Yagrou" and said at least 2,000 Jewish immigrants were board. British ships will escort the "Yagrou" to Haifa. Government officials indicated her passengers would be returned to the port of origin.
