Youngdahl made tho ast night at a G.O.P. Anti-Red Fight Another plank promised that if Republicans get their coveted hold on tho White House they will press strong measures to defeat com- munism at home. In the day's speech-making, the delegates heard Senator Kenneth S. Wherry ot Nebraska assert that Ger- man recovery Is the key to stop- ping communism. As did Illinois' Governor Dwlght Oroen and Clare Soothe Luce before him, Wherry assailed the interna- tional agreements made by Franklin D. Roosevelt and President Truman. Tho Nebraska senator said In a prepared manuscript that these "short-sighted agreements" today "stand as roadblocks In tho path we now have determined as the true course to world pence."

Stassen interrupted a series of meetings with state delegations, the first of which started at a. m., to hold the news conference. He said he believed he had picked up considerable secondary strength as the result of conferences thus far with 18 different state dele- gations, He predicted some "great defla- tions" when the first roll is called. He referred, he explained, to the claimed vote totals of Senator Taft and Governor Thomas Dewey. How- ever, he did not change his previous prediction that he would be third on the first ballot. A strong third, he called than most estimates I have seen." Stassen met with delegates from Kentucky, Nebraska and Rhode Island this morning. Meetings have been scheduled during the day with groups from Alabama, Kansas, South Carolina, Florida and prob- ably others. Goldsborough 0. Lewis Pension Plan Operators' Plea to Block Payment Dismissed by Judge T. Alan Goldsborough today gave John L, Lewis a legal go-ahead for his monthly pension plan for miners, Goldsborough dismissed a pica of Ezra Van Horn, trustee 'for op- erators on the United Mine Work- ers' welfare fund, for a court or- der to block payment of pensions for retired miners. The judge said he found the pro- posal for payments "reasonable and proper." Fir Lewis, it marked his first triumph on three trips into Judge Goldsborough's court. Twice before he had been there only to be fined for contempt of court for failure to end walkouts in obedience to Golds- borough orders. The question of pension payments is blocking negotiation of a new agreement to go into effect June 30, when the current pact expires. It was the pension argument that brought about the costly six-weeks strike last spring. The proposed system of payments was evolved by Lewis and Senator H. Styles Bridges (R. N. Bridges became neutral member of the welfare board and sided with Lewis in setting up the plan. Van Horn refused to approve the payments and went into court to ask that it be declared illegal. Goldsborough said the plan, which was only tentative and may be changed as experience does not violate either the 1947 coali work contract, made last July, or the Taft-Hartley labor act.

T1IIKD BALLOT clals, for the first time in more than three months, met the western allies .today in a discussion on currency. The aim was to agree on a money reform for this four-power city and to arrange for continuing trade re- lations between Soviet and western Germany, which now arc using different, currencies. The British proposed the talks, which started in the early after- noon. No high level meeting had benn held since March 20, whenlpestcd the conference in view of tho Russians walked from the allied control council. The Russians Britain and France instituted a new, devalued currency in western Germany at the weekend to curb inflation and strike at the black market. The Russians agreed to today's talks after asserting that only the new currency they plan for their own zone should be circulated in Berlin, They declared Berlin "is economically a part" of the Soviet zone, in which It is located years of age or older and who have worked in the pits for at least 20 years. Lewis and Bridges agreed to set aside of the fund to start the pension payments The fund has been accumulated through a ten cents a ton royalty levy on each ton of coal mined. This was provided in the 1S47 contract. The dispute between. U.M.W. Chief Lewis and the mine owners has blocked any payments for pensions or other welfare benefits for U.M.W, members. Lewis has insisted that agree- ments be reached on the pension problem before he would go ahead with talks for a new contract. Goldsborough's decision thus helps to clarify the matter and possibly clears the way for resumption of contract negotiations to prevent a strike in July. Goldsborough said he couldn't see anything in the Lewis-Bridges pen- sion proposal that is "any way im- proper, or not in the spirit" of the Tart-Hartley act and the present operator-union contract. Russ Flay U. S. Berlin Leader Berlin Soviet Marshal Vas- sily D. Sokolovsky filed a formal complaint today against what he called the "coarse" behavior of Col- onel Prank L, Hawley, U. S. com- mandant in Berlin, at the last meeting of the four-power kom- mandatura. In a letter to General Lucius D. Clay, the American commander In Germany, Sokolovsky, the Russian commander, declared Howley "re- fused In a coarse and insulting manner to discuss proposals for im- proving the material and legal sit- uation of the workers of industry in Berlin." The protest was reported by the Soviet-licensed news agency. Convention Program are the second and third day programs of the Republican national convention (time ta central standard) i TUESDAY a. m.

The order was issued shortly after midnight by Lieutenant General Panos Kalogeropoulos, Second corps commander. It sent the second, eighth and tenth divisions into the attack on the eastern, southern and western sides of the Grammos moun- tain semicircle holding an estimated guerrillas. Meanwhile, the crack ninth divi- sion was slogging its way from Ko- nitsa, across north Greece, appar- ently to seal off the Albanian bor- der.

The ship was moved overnight into Tel Aviv bay and grounded within a block of the waterfront headquarters of the United Nations., Importation or arms is barred under the U. N. four-week armis- tice. An Israeli communique reported tho clash with Irgun, a former un- derground fighting force. An Irgun broarcast said "Some of our people have been killed and and threatened a "blood battle be- tween Jews" if tho attacks on Irgun did not cease. The Israeli government imposed censorship for 24 hours on news about the ship and its landtag. United Nations officials said truce observers were sent at once to the scene of the beaching, since a viola- tion of the U. N.'s four-week arm- istice, now in its second week, may I be involved. The government's statement and the Irgun broadcast were the only facts permitted by censorship to be sent abroad of the clash. There was no indication as to whether the attempt to land arms was successful. Informed sources said the craft involved was the Alta Lena, which sailed from Marseilles ten days ago. First Break Of Republican Convention Quick Acceptance of Party's Shortest Platform Forecast By Jack Bell Philadelphia Thomas E. Dcwey got the first big break at tha Republican national convention, to- day when Pennsylvania's favorite son. Senator Edward Martin, sud- denly withdrew In Dewcy's favor. Martin announced further that he would plate Dewcy's name In nomination before the delegates to- morrow. How many of Pennsylvania's mas- sive 1J3-vote delegation Martin can carry with him was the big Ques- tion. Asked this question, Martin said: "I do not know. I have made no estimate." Seventy-two or the delegates hnve been pledged to Martin. The Martin statement came as a big surprise. The Martin swing to Dcwey came after a. two and a, quarter hour ses- sion of the convention, devoted to speech-making denouncing the Democratic administration. A plat- form was readied too on which the convention presidential choice will seek election to the White House. The second day of the Republican convention started slowly today. Only a sprinkling of, delegates and virtually no spectators at all on hand at the hour set for the third, session. Many of the participants had had a late night. Platform Release Release of the 1948 Republican, platform came -at 1 a. m. and they waited for the text. It will not bo presented to the convention until Wednesday morning but It was the central topic of conversation In tho convention hall before the opening of the session. The platform pledges Interna- tionalism, a potent military machine and civil rights for all. Chairman Henry Cabot Lodge of the G.OJP. resolutions committee will offer the document in the party's the national convention tomorrow for approval.
