afforded the war and state departments as well as the white house an opportunity for a further check on critical German conditions already outlined during the recent conferences here of Lt Gen Lucius Clay Eisenhowers deputy and Ambassador Robert Murphy his chief political advis or In the light of this here are the two German problems which have soon will to Mr Trumans attention 1 The effective administration of Germany For weeks this has Been hamstrung by French refusal to agree on most measures for in terzone activities until they are assured ofallied support for their Plan to put the industrially rich under an international con important ngtime French occupation Food The German people now are getting about 1500 calor cj a day although experts in Ger many recently sent word here that a minimum of 2000 calories is needed 3 The question of what to do about destroying Germany indus try This issue has reached a criti cal point The Potsdam decision calls for destroying or removing as reparations all German warmak ing industries Some plants fall clearly in this category some clear ly are in the category of peaceful manufacturers but in between is Eirt bulfc of German industry 4 Civilian control There is an increasing demand among insiders for the president to speed the re placement of the military adminis tration of Germany This would not mean the end of an army of occupation but merely that the t6p officials would be civilians rather than military ct TesHfyinSt jl Of President Trumans request for univer sal military training Eisenhower told the house military committee I believe Russias policy friendship with ihe United States There is in Russia a desperate j and continuing concern for the lot of the common man and they want to be friends with the United States The general said he knew that some Russians are concerned over criticism of the Soviets by the United States press But he added it is difficult for Russians to understand a free press as it op erates in the United States His references to the possibil ityof war with Great Britain or Russia were made in response to questions by committee members principally Rep Parnell Thomas RN J who asked Who do we have as potential aggressors Eisenhower would not specify any nation because he said he could not foretell international developments adding that years ago none thought we would be at war

of makine the atomic bomb would be kept sec ret from all other would include thenRussian ally effective reciprocal and enforceable safeguards accept able to all nations are devised A statement signed by Presi dent Truman and Prime Minis ters Attiee and MacKenzie King laid down the conditions for reciprocal sharing of atomic infor mation for industrial purposes Their statement issued to the press at the white house after 6 days of conferences proposed that a special commission should be set up under the united nations as soon as possible to work but rec ommendations designed to at tain the most effective means of entirely eliminating the use of atomic energy for destructive pur poses and promoting its widest use for industrial and hu manitarian purposes While Russia was nowhere mentioned by name the question which immediately arose araonjr diplomats here was how fully ac ceptable io Moscow the Anglo American Canadian plans for con trolling atomic energy would be particularly in view of Russias reluctance throughout the war to exchange information even on tablished weapons The commission which the 3 leadersproposed atthe conclu sion of their 6day conference on atomic problems would be charged with the duty specific proposals on points 1 For extendingbetween all nations the exchange oE basic sci entific information on all sub jects for peaceful ends 2 For control of atomic ener gy to the extent necessary to in sure its use only for peaceful pur poses For the elimination from national armaments of atomic weapons and of all other major weapons adaptable to mass de struction For effective safeguards by way oE inspection and other means to protect complying states against the hazards of violations and invasions In a 1000word statement set ting forth the results of their dis cussions the 3 chiefs of state pre faced their proposals by saying flatly We are aware that the only complete protection for the civi lized world from the destructive use of scientific knowledge lies in the prevention of war No system of safeguards that can be devised will of itself pro vide an effective guarantee against production of atomic weapons by a nation bent on aggression Nor can we ignore the possi bility of the development of other weapons or of new methods of warfare which may constitute as great a threat to civilization as the military use of atomic energy The statement made a distinc tion between what was called the fundamental scientific informa tion about atomic developments and the specialized information regarding the practical application of atomic energy The 3 leaders noted that actual ly the scientific information has already been made available to the world and they added that it is our intention that all further in formation on this character that may become available irom time to time shall be similarly treated Obviously with soviet Russia Primarily in mind they then said that we trust that other nations will adopt the same policy there by creating an atmosphere of re ciprocal confidence in which po litical agreement and cooperation will flourish But as for the detailed knowl edge of practical application of energy the 3 asserted that snould be kept secret until the world is better organized through the united nations to receive it with strong assurance that it would not be used for destructive cur poses The statement was issued by President Truman Attiee and MacKenzie King at a white house press conference held about 1010 a m CST The 3 completed their deliberations last midnight Buy your Victory Bonds and Stamps
