BERLIN BLOCKADE MAY END SUNDAY Benes In Coma; Doctors Gloomy PRAGUE, Sept. 1 president Eduard Benes of Czechoslovakia is in "very bad" condition and is not expected to live through the night, an official spokesman at his Sezimovo Usti. RED LEADER ZHDANOV DIES home, said Wednesday. Benes, has been in a coma since early Wednesday, nearly death from arterial sclerosis. The 64-year-old statesman had been reported in ill health when he resigned from office shortly after the Communists seized con- trol of his country last February. He took a turn for the worse Tuesday and his doctors said he had lost consciousness. Benes has been at his home in Sezimovo Usti south of Prague, since last February when, with tears in his eyes, he walked out. of the Prague presidential palace after swearing in a new Communist cabinet. Friends said he preferred re- tirement public life to bowing to the wishes of the Red cabinet ministers who surrounded him following the coup. Benes had been reported in good ealth by his friends in recenj lonths. But when he formally re- red "''om the presidency on Juneef up 28 per cent, and potatoes up 20 per cent.

Schuman now faces the more 'dif- ficult-task of getting, the various parties to agree on details of a programme and men for the var- ious cabinet posts. ______ LOSS ESTIMATED WJLC.

He was ordered freed. He had been serving an eight- term after conviction on the charge by a Stuttgart denazifica- tion court last year. Schacht also went free from the courtroom at Nuernberg two years ago, when Hermann Goering, Joa- chim Von Ribbentrop and other close associates of Adolf Hitler were condemned to die for war crimes. The court held that Schacht's participation in the Nazi opposi- tion movement from 1936 onward more than outweighed his earlier support of Hitler.
