WILL BONDS TO SAVE INTEREST OKLAHOMA CI1Y. March I, In a move to saver an esti- mated in interest, the Iceberg Plane Field Planned Vast Floating Carrier Un- necessary When Other Anti-Sub Tactics Worked WASHINGTON, March of the wierclest stories of the war came to light today how the Allies planned to create .a self-propelled ice- Iberc as a floating airfield. I As blueprinted by the British, the fantastic aircraft carrier would have been n chunk of frozen water and wood pulp feet long, 300 feet wide and 200 feet deep. Propelled by electric motors nnd defended by its own antiair- craft guns, it would have provid- ed a North Atlantic base for air- planes hunting German subma- rines. Its cost was estimated at The project reached the point where a model was built on a Canadian lake and tested for six months in 1043 be- fore the idea was dropped, ac- cording to an announcement re- leased last night in Ottawa, Lon- don and Washington. Technicians reported the strange carrier would have been virtually invulnerable to sub- marine attack. A torpedo ex- ploding against its ice-wood pulp walls would have gouged out a crater no more than three feet deep. Success of other anti-subma- rine tactics and technical diffi- in building tin- gigantic field led to ils abiindon- state dormitory bond funding commission approved refunding of SfM.OOO in outstanding dormi- tory bonds issued by Langston university.

In a statement prepared for the Reds lo Leave Part of Iran Will Remain in Northwest Area Despite Treaty Agree- ment of 1942 By JOHN M. HIGIITOWER WASHINGTON. March 1, The United States government is expected by diplomatic officials here to protest to Russia against the newly announced plan of keeping Red army forces in so- called "disturbed" areas of Iran. These diplomats, who refused direct quotation, said it was "per- fectly reasonable" to expect the American government to object strongly to the Russian policy. LONDON, March 1, Moscow radio announced today that Red army troops would start withdrawing tomorrow from those sections of Iran "which arc but would remain in the northwestern area, which includes the province of Azerbai- jan. The Soviet government has In- formed Iranian negotiators that the tomorrow from all Iran under an allied be limited to eastern areas of Soviet occupa- tion in northern Iran "where the situation is relatively according to the broadcast.

It followed a statement at the foreiirn office here yesterday that all British troops would have been withdrawn by tomorrow, in strict accord with the treaty. last of the United States forces assigned to Iran were withdrawn Jan. 1. A British foreign office spokes- man said there "probably had been exchanges" of information between London and Washington regarding the withdrawal as the deadline neared. The United States embassy said it had "no information" on any negotiations and, up to the time of the Moscow broadcast, had no indication of what the Russians would do about withdrawing. McALESTER.

The steel industry found itself moving rapidly back to normal today after the greatest walkout in American history. Nearly of the 750000 striking ClO-United Steclwurk- ers were covered by new con- tracts. Most of them granting rents hourly wage increases. Still strikebound were steel fabricating plants with about 000 employes. Tic; (toil-odd fab- ricating mills In the U. S. employ ill all about workers, so that nearly half have u'timicd lo the job since the Jim. 21 stopp- age began. From Washington came a re- port from President Truman's steel fact-findimr board, ruling on two points in the controversy: (1) The cents hourly wage increase was "well within" the limits set by government policy, and (2) The steelwoikcrs' strike did not violate its contract. The board called its point historical" since the strike is now all but over, pointed out that none of tis conclusions were based on public hearings, and cmphaized that neither the un- ion nor the industry had an "ade- quate opportunity to present their views." Meantime fabricators' continu- ed to protest they could not pay tne HP) cent raise without price relief help. Negotiations Fail Again for GM And UAW on 101st Day DF.TROIT. March 1, tintions in the General Motors strike failed to achieve a settle- ment on the 101st day of the cost- ly walkout today. As corporation n n d union negotiators left a session with Federal Mediator Jiimes F Dewey, Walter P. Retither, of the striking CIO United Auto Work- ers, was a.ked if they reached an agreement. "Wo did Reuther replied firmly. Today's brief negotiating ses- sion was adjourned until lo a. m. tomorrow. President R. J. Thomas of the UAW-CIO, whose GM production employes have been idle since Nov. 21, affirmed Heather's statement with a flat to the query as to whether an understanding had been rench- About 200 strikers and sympa- thizers had gathered in the early morning hours just across the city line in Delaware county, a few blocks from the strikebound GE plant. More than 100 police massed near the entrance to the city to enforce the order against marching. Enter In Small Groups The- strikers requested permis- sion to enter Philadelphia and assistant police Superintendent uuy E. Parsons said his forces would not interfere if they re- turned in small groups and dis- persed. The strikers scattered and filtered slowly back to the city as police, on horseback and motorcycles, stood guard. James II. Malone, director of public safely, announced over a loud-speaker set up in polica patrol cars at the county line that the city would allow no parading by the strikers without a permit and that they had not applied for a city permit. Almost tiOO policemen had been detailed to the area with about 400 of them standing guard at the GK plant to enforce a court- imposed ban on mass picketing. There was no disorder at Iho plant.

"SllBhtly Apart" Byrnes' Stern Policy Statement Hints At Firmer Stand on Red Army's Deployment By JOHN HIGIITOWER WASHINGTON, March American showdown with R.oscow over the Red Army's de- ployment in strategic areas of Eu- rope and Asia was foreshadowed today by the stern new foreign "mlicy enunciated by Secretary of State Byrnes. Direct and vigorous measures ikcwise were indicated against thc Soviet policy of stripping property from liberated countries of former enemy satellites. The Byrnes pronouncement in New York last night was gener- ally interpreted here as herald- ing a tougher administration pol- icy toward Russia all along the line, particularly with regard to Soviet expansionist tendencies and the Kremlin's lone hand manouverings in neighboring na- tions. Three Countries Figure Three countries seemed likely to figure in the Soviet troop rc-i moval issue, according to inr mation here. They are Iran, Aus- tria end China, but there are other areas less urgently involv- ed. Efforts have been under way for some time, it was learned, to get the Russians to agree to with- drawal of allied troops from Aus- without success. As for Iran, tomorrow is the generally accepted deadline for evacuation of Soviet forces there, but official reports reaching Washington say there is virtually no evidence that they intend to pull out by that time. Manchuria Causes Concern Meanwhile there is growing concern among many officials as to Soviet intentions in Manchuria m view of recent reports that Red army forces there show signs of stjying on indefinitely. Thc Manchurian situation Is lot considered by many authori- ties here to be critical at the mo-1 ment, but private comment un- derscored Byrnes warning that we do not want to stumble and stagger into a situation where no power intends war, but no pow- er will be able to avert war." The main points of the speech which diplomatic officials stress- ed as of great importance in the development of a more vigorous American leadership in world af- fairs were these: 1. The United States intends to live up fully to the principles of the United Nations charter and to use all its influence to see that other, nations do the same. U. S. Must Be StronRlv Armed 2. To that end the United States must be mightily armed until such time as reduction of arma- ments among all the powerful nations becomes possible. 3. The United States believes that no nation has a right to keep (Continued on Page 2 Column 7) Mediator Dewey told a press conference the corporation and the union were still "slightly a- part on one or two matters." He declined to divulge these, but GM and the UAW-CIO were report- ed still differing on the wage and vacation pay questions. Representatives of the union prepared to present a report on the situation up to the moment to the union's GM council, meet- ing at 1 p. m. (EST) today. The union group left the negoliating session immediately to appear be- fore the representatives of the rank and file, some 200 of whom were here from thc UAW-CIO locals in GM plants throughout the country. Dewey said he had no plans to attend the council meeting. Yesterday's air of expectancy again attended the conference. which got under way as registra- tion began for a two-day meeting of the union's GM council of some 200 members which would have to ratify any settlement plan accepted by the disputants. Thc council called the mass walkout of GM produc- tion workers last Nov. 21. As the negotiating conference opened it nppenred likely meeting against muss picketing.
