Dyniin Paris Soviet Foreign Min- ister V. M. Molotov turned down today a British-French proposal for European recovery under the Mar- shall program, and apparently end- ed the conference of the three for- eign ministers on. the subject of American aid to Europe, Molotov said the British-French proposals "would lend to no good results" and warned both Western nfttlons that their nation would lead to a division of Europe. A high Soviet official said this session was the end of the con- ference which found Russia In com- plete disagreement with Britain and France. i Compromise Extends Conference Molotov left the meeting about five minutes before British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevln, French Foreign Minister Georges Bldault accompanied him to the door of the foreign ministry, shook hands, and tvent back upstairs to confer with Beviri. The Ilfth session of the three- power foreign ministers' confer- ence convened at p. m. a. m. Molotov, the last to arrive, was serious and unsmiling In contrast to the affability he showed yesterday. The French com- promise, offered yesterday, had kept the conference olive at least temporarily after Russia ques- tioned the terms of U. S. Secretary of State Marshall's ald-for-Europe proposal. Both Britain n.nd France report- edly are ready to go ahead with MarshaUX suggestion in. ..the event Russia rejects the French com- promise.

Weather Stanley Balaban was chewed and clawed to death yesterday, by a pack of bull terriers in a tract of unde- veloped marshlands .and a patrol- man sent to Investigate the case was injured severely by the- ani- mals before they were driven off by gunfire. The boy was attacked after leav- ing a Bronx swimming pool where he had gone with his mother. Several hours later, another boy crossing the marshland noticed five dogs tearing at some he saw a boy's foot, chewed to the bone, protruding from tall grass and called police. Patrolman Louis Rlssone, 31. went Lo investigate. As he approached the pack, one of the dogs lunged at; him and threw liim to the. ground while others circled about. As Rissone .wrestled with the ani- mal, reinforcements arrived and fel- low policemen finally shot two of the dogs dead while the others scat- tered. The other animals were rounded up and sent to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Police said the dogs were owned by Svend F. Sandgren who Pigeonholing Bill Would Hamper State Department, Claim Washington Secretary of State George Marshall urged sena- tors today to approve In this ses- sion of Congress legislation to ex- pand a foreign information program which he termed "vital to the suc- cess of our foreign policy." Marshall told a Senate foreign re- ilatlons subcommittee that unless the Senate acts on legislation au- thorizing such a program, the State department will face "serious han- dicaps" abroad, Representative Mundt (R.-S. D.) author of the House-passed measure now before the committee, also urged speedy action. He told the senators that "Russians and others are spreading malicious lies about us every day." leaders have indicated they may pigeonhole the Mundt bill until next January and rely on a appropriation passed by the Senate to carry on the cultural program, including the shortwave radio Voice of America broadcasts. Too Small Marshall told the committee that the Senate-approved appropriations figure is .too small, representing only about one-half of the mpney that President requested. Truman originally "This sum will certainly not en- ible the department to carry on the nformatlon activities at- a level which our embassies abroad consid- er to be the secretary said in a prepared statement read to the committee. Without mentioning any foreign country, Marshall complained that ,he policies and actions of the United States are "often misunder- itood and misrepresented abroad." Marshall continued: Guests Soar 15 Per Cent Boosts Common; Other- Hikes Tripled By The Associated Press Permanent residents in many ho- tels throughout the nation have re- ceived notices their rents are to be upward from 15 per cent. Although a boost of 15 per cent was the most frequently reported as the hotels were freed from controls under the new federal rent la there were instances of rent In creases as from 25 to per cent. There also were reported isolatec cases of extreme 300 pc cent for a resident of a Denvi tourist- camp, and 200 per cent at St. Louis hotel.

These Included the Stev ens in Chicago, the world's largest the Somerset In Boston and th White Plaza In'Dallas, Texas.

Eviction Notice In Chicago, where hotel officials said 15 per cent was the average In crease with a few cases of hikes up to 100 per cent or higher, some hos- telrles served eviction notices on tenants, using that method to have undesirable guests vacate. Most hotels in St. Louis planner Increases "averaging just under 15 Der cent, while in Seattle some 'moderate increases" were reported as probable. Most hotels in Detroit have not announced their plans but the Port Shelby lowered discount rates to permanent residents from 33Mi per cent to 15 per cent. B. B.

Time at Hand for Unified Cooperation Winona's population today Is 27.000. This estimate, based on the number of employed persons In the city, was released today by the Association of Commerce following a survey and "spot checks" showing the city's growth since 1940 when the last government was taken. The figure represents an Increase ol 24 per cent since 1940. "A review of population in- dicates that Winona is, at present, in a favorable said A, J. Anderson, Association of Commerce sccrctary-mnnagcr, who announced the population ngure in the July news bulletin of the association. "It tells a story of rapid growth dur- ing tlic' booming lumber and saw- mill days from 1870 to 1890. Ujca leveling on and declining from 1SOO to 3910, very little recovery until after 1920 and a sharp improve- ment in growth from 1940 to date." There arc at present between and persons employed la Winona, Mr. Anderson said. Talc- ng the figure of 3.8 persons resld- ng a city for every employee! person, which is the figure used by abor organizations nationally, we get a population of 30.-IOO. This was discounted -by the fact ttmt some families of. some of the per- sons employed here reside the city limits. Checked Against Other Factors "We realize also that this is an Association of Commerce and such estimates ore usually op- timistic, but we fed we have not done overboard in announcing that figure. The number of telephones, for example, has increased from in 1340 to G.700 now. Eectrle meters, water meters, gas meters, newspaper circulations and other Indicia also IndicaUt. 27.000 Ic a fairly -accurate figure." The city today has more than M well diversified industrial plants. Mr. Anderson's report states, and others aru coming in regularly. Whereas war activities stimulated the growth of many Minnesota ci- ties, Winona did not expand as much from this type of activity as many others. For that reason. Mr. Anderson believes, the current growth is n. substantial one which more to the future of city than .1 wartime boom. From 1800 to 1930 the city show- ed little growth, according to fed- eral census population figures. In the period of 1900 to 1910 there a decrease of six per cent in popu- lation. This may have been due. Mr. Anderson believes, to the fact that the census year was a partic- ularly poor one or to the manner in which the census was taken. Somc cities, during the talcing of n. federal census, moke an all-out promotion to be sure every person Is listed, but Winor.a has never done that. In some ciUes, too, residents of state or federal institutions are counted in the population survey whereas college students in Wlnc- na, have never been counted. Goodvicw Residents Not Counted Several hundred persons live In areas adjacent to the city but out- side of the city limits, such as the village of Goodvicw, Mr. Anderson points out, but these were not con- sidered In the figure even though most of them make their livelihood in the city. A table issued by the Association of Commerce, published in an ad- jacent column, shows the growttx in population by number of persons and the percentage. improve our position and con- ,inuc our current cycle of Mr. Anderson said, "will more effort than during the war years. Our economic should be broadcast more than ever, activities should be promoted and supported to focus attention on our community, cooperation of groups and organizations will needed to cncournsc further ex- pansion in both large and small in- dustries aud obstacles to such ex- pansion should be removed quickly.
