Soviet deputy foreign mini- ster, made it clear today that in his opinion Russia would ac- cept a German settlement without reparations payments to the So- viet Union from current produc- tion, on a large scale. Vishinsky, nght-hand man of Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. ilolotov, said acceptance by the United States of the principle of current reparations was the thing -'we been fighting for" in the council of foreign ministers. Vishinsfcy told a news con- fust held by a Soviet official since the for- eign ministers this lack of agreement on the approach to reparations was the foremost difficulty be- tween the Western powers and the Soviet Union. The Soviet deputy made this statement as the four-power coun- cil resumed its discussion of cur- rent political problems and pro- cedures for writing the German treaty, after- deadlocking: last night on the question of Germany's western frontier with France.

Adolf Hitler had a terri- ble fear of the American B-29 Superfortress boracer in the last months of the war and an amazing lack of faith in his own V-weapoas, charred rec- ords of his secret staff con- ferences show ed today. The partly burned steno- graphic transcripts of his wartime conferences, captured by the U. S. Army and re- leased here, disclosed Hitler told Hermann Goering and members of the army general staff Jan. 10. 1345: "Things are such that the American B-29 now is in action- The Japanese see them already. I feel a great danger, and one cannot weigh this danger too lightly. The B-23 bomber can be Ger- many's destruction. These machines will make their ap- pearance here." The 3-29 appeared in Europe during the war. but Hitler's repeated references to then: showed he feared them perhaps even, more than the approaching armies oi the Allies. "Even he told Luft- waffe Chief Goermg, blasting: the fat field rsarsha! for Sddiing around with the con- struction of ont-of-dare fighter planes." the enemy planes come like a parade, and when the big ones come, German planes will literally enter a hailstorm of fire." He said German planes would be mowed down ruth- lessly. Hitler felt America could win the World War with the B-29, saying: "The Americans can produce B-29's in great masses. What else does he need, the Ameri- can? He can crush everything with them. Nobody can come and tell me they won't attack us. Now they are attacking Japan with 70 to 100 planes- 3ut these xvill soon increase to SCO. then 500, then XOOO and then 2.000." As for the V-i and V-2 weapons, which Dr. Joseph promised the German peopie would turn the tide of the war for them. Hitler had different ideas when he spoke secretly to his generals. On the same cay he was so worried aboat tae appearance 01 the B-29. he said: am sorry to say that the V-weapons cannot decide the war." The same month. January, 1945. when the allies were m Antwerp, an extract from a burned situation report quoted Hitler as saying: I gave out orders that 50 Messerschmitt should be refitted to carry 500 kilogram bombs. I simply raust be able to drop them on Ant- werp. We cannot relv on V-l or V-2 shelling." The fuehrer incredulous whea Gen. Alfred Joel told him a V-2 missile had hit the Rex rnovie house in Antwerp Dec. 17. 1944, killing per- sons. His comment was: "That must have been the first successful hit with a V-2.
