Faber said he spotted "a bright, shining: object moving: east" whfle flying over the Gary-Michigan City, Ind., area "It looked like one of those flying saucers. Certainly it was something I've never ever seen he said. Faber said he was flying at feet and the object, feet away, looked about the of a basketball.

Possible abolition of the blockade is anticipated here as a Western victory in a single bat- tle of a continuing cold war. Insofar as the opportunity for Russia and the Western powers to meet is concerned, the lifting of the blockade would restore the situation to about what it was a year ago be- fore the Soviets sought to isolate Berlin. At that time the Western powers served notice they would not nego- tiate so long as the Russians held a pistol to their heads; now the Rus- sians may be ready to lay the pistol. down. Meanwhile a new situation has been created within the Western bloc and Acheson in his speech to the American Newspaper Publishers association in New York last night blamed this squarely on Russia, He said the Russians had sought economic and political control of Germany in the early postwar period and had refused to make reasonable agreements for the future of a dem- ocratic German state, so the West- ern powers went ahead with their own plans. As a result they have spelled out n detail what kind of Germany iiey want to rebuild. In any future council of foreign ministers session, ;herefore, it will be for the Russians to- decide whether they will unify Sermany along the lines laid down jy the Western po-.vers or whether they would prefer that Germany re- main split indefinitely. Acheson emphasized that the United States is prepared to deal with either alternative and if no agreement can be reached with the lussiaas this country "will continue to Ien3 vigorous support to the de- velopment of the western German program."
