(2) Kvery effort should be made to facilitate the repatriation of displaced persons de- siring, to return to their homes and (3) Those with valid objections to returning homo should be cared for by an international agency until new homes arc found for them.

"It Is not unreasonable that many of the other potential members of ;he international refugee organiza- tion should watch closely the atti- tude of tho United States before making their own definite commit- ments.

New Weapon Claimed A British senior intelligence officer said- the movement claimed pos- session of a secret bacteriological weapon ready for use. Other officers declared they had not learned for sure whether the group had such a weapon. U. S. authorities reported the ar- rest of some 30 suspects and British authorities the arrest of "hundreds" in the respective zones. Soldiers seal- ed off streets and intelligence agents went into houses they long had been watching. The British said the movement stretched into the Russian and French' zones and authorities there were being kept posted. They reported the Underground wanted to restore German militarism and Nazi dictatorship to "lead the nations of Europe against Russia." Time for Clcan-Up Lieutenant General Lucius D.
