March possibility arose today that the atom bomb tests may be put off still further, in the in- terest of world amity. Two high administration sources, closely linked with pre- parations for the experiments in the Pacific, said they may be postponed indefinitely, until the are pulling together bet- ter. Senator Huffman (D.-Ohio) called for flat cancellation, de- scribing the trials as ".sheer folly." The joint army-navy task force assigned to the experiment went ahead with plans to carry out the first test on July 1. six weeks later than the original date. Vice Adm. W. H. P. Ulandy, the com- mander, .said in a statement that his force was ready to meet the original schedule. This made it plain that tin- delay did not have its inception with the task force. Talk Of Reasons "Dangerous" Tlie two administration offi- rials would not allow the use of their names in view of President Truman's announcement last night that tho historic events, scheduled to start May 15, were postponed for about six weeks to permit attendance of congress- men who want to be witnesses. One of them, however, said it was that this was not the sohr reason for the delay, and that it was rather dangerous" to talk in detail about the real rea- son at time. He pointed to what he said was Credits Party With Bringing America to Position Of World Leadership, Up to Party to Lead Way in Future By DOUGLAS B. CORNELL WASHINGTON, March Truman bid strongly tonight for more "unity" and "responsibility" in a democratic party whose "enlightened internationalism" he credited with bringing America to a position of world leader- ship. It is the party's he said, to "continue to lead the way" toward friendship with all peoples and strengthening of the United Nations. To fellow democrats gathered at some 300 Jackson Day rallies here and around the country, the president emphasized in his first speech with a definite political tag that: "I cannot make too strong my plea for party unity and party responsibility." Wallace Swings Harder Punches Ho referred only mildly, how- ever, to a "diversity of opinion' in democratic ranks. He left i to Secretary of Commerce Wai laco to swing hard both at dissi- dent democrats and the republi- can opposition. Speaking immediately before the chief addres- ses were de- clared "great harm" had been done in tho party by "those who Russia To Take All Troops From Manchuria By April 30 __ But Prospects for Civil War In China Darkening Situation UN Cannot Survive Break have joined in a coalition against with the who wrap themselves traditions of Jefferson (Continued on Page 5 Column C) and Jackson, but "whose actions bclio their pretensions." Wallace added: "So to keep our own party on the side of progress, we must call upon those democrats who have been harmful to our cause to re- turn to the way of Jefferson and to honor our side of the fence with their 'mugs' as wr.ll .is their 'wumps.'" Neither the president nor Wal- lace mentioned the latter's de- mand earlier this week that con- gressmen who jump over party ines bc expelled from the par- ty. Takes Part of Responsibility But the president asserted that under the party system, political responsibility must rest with the chief executive and with the majority in congress. ''To meet this 10 said "all our members in the ongress must cooperate whole- uartcdly and help carry out our Jarty platform. Unless this is done, party program is delayed For the most part, Mr. Truman lealt with problems at home. But ie said that America must lead he way to a better world order nd seek increasingly close ricndship with all nations. "And we shall strengthen the oundations of the United Na- Mr. Trumnn promised. Surely, we shall never retreat lerely because of dangers along he road to peace nnd progress." Amerlcani Yearn For Peace The chief executive did not enumerate the dangers he saw. But he said Americans yearn for a sound and lasting peace "above and beyond all political consid- eration." Similarly, ho remarked that the solution of tremendous social problems of our day requires wholehearted cooperation of every element within the coun- try and should not be a "partisan affair." "The United States of Americn has achieved world Mr. Truman asserted. "For that re- sult the democratic party as the party of enlightened internation- alism, is primarily responsible. We must maintain that leader- ship. And the democratic" party must continue to lead the way." Placing Mr. Truman in t "h e company of Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Wilson and Roosevelt, Wallace said no president can hit hard in the people's cause with- out being reviled.

GRAND RAPIDS. Mich.. March 23. Senator Vandonbcrg (It-Mich) declared tonight .the United "cannot survive in its present form" if Russia and America ever fall apart. The tall lawmaker, who helped draft tlie United Nations charter and was a delegate; to the first UNO general assembly, added that there never need be war be- tween Russia nnd the United States "if common sense and real- ism shall govern our foreign poli- cies in Washington and Moscow." Ho made the assertions in a speech prepared for a civic home- coming here at his birthplace. One Answer Still Missing Although Vandenberg found [he progress made so far by the UNO "deeply encouraging." lie said the answer still is missing to 'the paramount conundrum of modern is Russia up to 'Of course the United Nations cannot survive in its present form f the so-called 'Big Five' fall he said and added: "Particularly it cannot survive n its present form if the 'Big and ipart." The phrase "in its present form" was outlined each time it occurred in his manuscript. Mn.it Speak Plainly "I reassert, as I did upon the senate; he said, "that we can live together in reasonable harmony if the United States speaks as plainly upon all occa- sions as Russia (Iocs; if the United States just as vigorously sustains its own purposes and id'eals upon all occasions as Russia does: if we abandon the miserable fiction, often encouraged by our fellow- travelers, that we somehow jeo- pardize the peace if our views are as firmly declared as Russia's al- ways are; and if we assume a moral leader.ship which wo too frequently have allowed to lapse." Vandenberg said he knows Am- erica does not want war, and he does not believe the Soviets do cithe. He added: "I think they will continue to press for every advantage can get. according to their own nationalist lights, short of major war. That is their business. Wo have encouraged them in it by our secret diplomacy and our sur- renders at Yalta and elsewhere when we were under the pres- sures of the exigencies of war." CHUNGKING. March 23, The Chinese government an- nounced today that Russia had promised to withdraw all R e d army troops from Manchuria by April as reports circulated that Chinese communists were maneuvering to move in behind the Russians. Relief was expressed over the Russian note, but the domestic scene was darkened by growing evidence of non-cooperation be- tween t h e communists and Chiang Kai-Shek's Kuomintang. Foreign Minister Wang Shih- Chief told tho people's political council Russia had delivered Fri- day the long-awaited reply to a Chinese note asking when the Red army would carry out its agreement to quit Manchuria. Written Report Promised Wang, pressed for details, promised to funish a written re- port of negotiations over Man- churia, n subject concerning which the government has been highly secretive. Government sources said it was unlikely that tho Soviet troop withdrawal would apply to Dar- ien or Port Arthur, whore Rus- sian rights have been establish- ed by treaty. Both are heavily garrisoned Russians. The Central News Agency said S.OOO Chinese communists had filtered into the northern Man- churian city of Harbin. The world Qaily News charged that communists troops were massing in neighboring Jchol province. Other Chinese dispatches re- ported a column of government troops was marching on com- munist held Szepingkai, rail- way city 100 miles north of Muk- den. Those accounts said all Chlnesu government-approved officials for Heilungkiang, northern province where the communists have been reported setting up an indepen- dent regime, would leave Chang- chun, Manchuria's capital, for Peipinc because they were un- able to assume their duties. Foreign diplomatic sources In Chungking took an extremely pessimistic view of the internal situation. They said General Marshall's personal influence was the dominating factor in forcing the communists and the Kuom- to sign the recent unifica- tion agreement and without him on the scene "the situation is rap- idly getting out of hand." Foreign observers asserted that both the communist and Kuomintang factions were taking advantage of the special U. S. envoy's absence in Washington.

IIIGHTOWER NEW YORK, March Hope of a real break in tho Iran- ian crisis ran strong among United Nations officials today, and it appeared tho security council, mooting M o n d a y, might pass without injury its most dangerous test to date. UNO speculation based on statements by Premier Ahmed Qavam in Tehran is that in the next few days the Russians may begin to pull their troops out of Iran and back into Russia. Such a movement would tak.o the wind put of tho Iranian crisis, reducing it to a situation the se- curity council should bo able to handle with relative ease.

Russia Loses UNRRA Move Tries to Prevent Discussion Of Requisitioning Land, Supplies in Austra By SIGRID ARNE ATLANTIC CITY. N. J., Mar. lost in a move before UNRRA today to prevent discussions of the manner in, which Soviet troops are requisi- tioning land nnd other rcsouccs in Austria. It was the second instance to- day of Europe's post-war political irritations cutting across the purely relief duties assigned to UNRRA. Follows Other Fusses Earlier Poland and the United Kingdom indulged in charges and counter-charges about the manner in which refugees were being cared for in Europe. The decision to discuss Russian troop actions in Austria came from UNRRA's central commit- tee, which wants the full council to discuss the effect Russian re- quisition on the Austrians has had on the UNRRA program there. Russia's N. I. Feonov objected to UNRRA's debating the ques- tion. Ho contended it was purely a political question and should properly bo decided by the allied control commission in Berlin. Three Vote With Russia He said "the United States made the" proposal for the cen- tral committee. My delegation does not feel it has enough infor- mation on the subject, and I am certain several other delegations are in tho same position. Dis- cussion here would, therefore, only bc one-sided." Only Yugoslavia. Dyelo-Russia and the Ukraine voted with Rus- sia and tho matter will come up before the council later. Earlier Poland charged that displaced persons in tho British zone in Germany were "exposed to the systematic propaganda of irresponsible trouble makers whoso ainj is to sow the seeds of another war."
