Dr. Walter H. Miles, city director, said the program was devised by the United States public health service and that its first test will come in Oklahoma City. A complete unit will be set up here and later will go to other large cities of the nation. The United States public health service, the state and city health aepartments and the county medical society will take part in the program. *There have been other programs in which mass testing was undertaken, but not any in which tney were expanded to include the entire population, both white and colored, of a city this size since it became possible to offer the new rapid treatment” Dr. Miles said. Rapid treatment for gonorrhea will be completed in four hours, la, syphilis in ten days, Dr. Miles, explained. Both have been used successfully by the army for the past year and a half. Dr. Miles said, however, that rapid treatment was not infallible and that some patients would need further checks after its completion.

The office of price administration said the pork and beef increases would be effective next Monday and resulted from recently authorized higher prices for the packing industry to offset a wage increase of 16 cents an hour. Otto** Hikes to Be Announced Price hikes will be announced « r /°L, veal * ,amb and mutton. R. J. Eggert, associate director of the meat institute’s marketing department testified to the house agriculture committee that of 1C03 stores checked by ‘‘impartial housewife shoppers” in ll cities, 83 per cent exceeded ceiling prices in their sales. He added that the illegal prices on some cuts were double and even triple the ceiling, although the average was around 20 Der cent. Eggert supported the industry’s demand for removal of meat price ceilings. The committee is investigating problems of the industry. Eggert declared: Costing Consumers ‘If the amount paid for meat above the ceiling is as much over throughout the entire country as in the ll cities surveyed, the over ceiling expense to the consumer Jo* his meat is in excess of $1,-250,000,000.” Retail pork prices generally will be upper an average of mree-quarters of a cent a pound, OPA said, while beef price increases will average a third of a cent a pound. One Cent On Popular Cuts Increases for individual pork and beef cuts range from one to four cents a pound. The price boost for most popular cuts_ such as sirloin and porterhouse steaks, bacon and pork chops and be only one cent a loins—will pound.

Seems Significant Now The refusal seemed significant to observers who have noted an atmosphere of bickering and bitterness in meetings of the U. S. Soviet commission since it convened March 20. • ff-i» a * * s known, the commission still is discussing matters of procedure and ‘‘technique” for its assignment of establishing a provisional Korean government. The 10-member group has met four times this week.    * _ There are a number of points of possible difference between American and Russian delegates. The Americans strongly advocate ab-olition of the boundary line which has contributed heavily to paralysis of Korean trade and industry The Russians are believ-to favor setting up a government before unification of the country. Selecting Koreans Difficult An even more ticklish point is the procedure for selecting Korean political representatives to form a new government. How-ever, it is obvious that the commission has not advanced to that stage in its discussions. Whether the question of Russian removal of property from north Korea has come up is not known. .^American plane yet has landed officially in the Russian zon f# although two Soviet aircraft flew unannounced into the American Kimpo airfield outside Seoul prior to the January joint conference of American and Russian officials. Russian fighters forced a B-29 on a mercy mission to a prisoner of war camp to crash land in northern Korea last Aug, 29.

A sealed envelope addressed to the commissioners was left with the county clerk just before noon on «rT 1 \ ursday b y Crawford. While curiosity mounted as to its contents, the impression became stronger around the courthouse that Crawford’s resignation was enclosed. Meanwhile an effort was being made Friday to get at least two of the commissioners together at the courthouse so that they could officially open the envelope and disclose its contents.

M. Molotov, defining German and Russian spheres of influence in Finland, the Baltic and Bessarabia. This, Ribbentrop told the international military tribunal, was done in August of 1939 at the tihie of the Russo-German non-agr ssion pact which was concluded two weeks before Germany marched into Poland. Ribbentrop is one of 22 leading Germans on trial for their lives as war criminals. The alleged secret treaty has been mentioned several times previously in defense moves by Ribbentrop and Rudolf Hess, but the Soviet prosecution had objected to admitting any documentary testimony. Today, the Russian prosecutor sat silent as Ribbentrop related his story of pre-war negotiations with the • en of the Kremlin. The treaty, he swore, “dealt with territories which both countries, Germany and Russia, had lost as the result of war.” He said a speech Stalin delivered in March of 1939 “contained a hint that Stalin wished better relations with Germany.” This was the first time Ribbentrop had though* of negotiating with Russia, continuous butt of Hitler’s attacks, the witness said.

FAT WASHINGTON, March 29, Lf** •President Truman’s idea for a council of star-studded elder statesr ,en on national defense caught Capitol Hill by surprise today. Key members of senate and house military and naval committees, usually familiar with administration thinking along such lines, said today they had no previous word of the president’s intention. Mr. Truman announced at his news conference yesterday that, acting under a recently approved bill providing permanent five-star rank for four generals and four admirals and four-star rank for the marine and coast guard commanders, he had sent their names to the senate for confirmation. Then the chief executive told newsmen the ten World War II leaders would constitute an or-ganization of elder statesmen, which would serve directly under him. Precisely what it would do, he didn’t say. Its members will be: Generals of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower. Douglas MacArthur, George C. Marshall and Henry H. Arnold; Fleet Admirals William D. Leahy, Chester W. Nimitz William F. Halsey and Ernest J. King; Gen. Alexander A. Vandergrift, Marine Commander, and Adm. Russell R. Waesche. chief of the Coastguard 4 The White House emphlsizwi today that the elder statesmen will not comprise a formal organization. “They will be available to the president for consultation either individually or as a group in time of emergency.” Press Secretary Charles G. Ross told a news conference. Asked whether they might be considered available to congress as well, Ross said the president had in mind their availability generally to advise the government as a whole. . • Th.? 1r t ls no “f^m organization, Ross said. He added that General John J. Pershing was consulted frequently during the war. (Continued on Page 2 Colin ji 2) UN Council Info Secret Meeting On Iranian SHualion ■J JOBNM.HIGHTOWER NEW YORK.

The meeting was set for half an hour in advance of the public session (scheduled for 3 p. rn.) at Hunter college. Word of this development came from well-informed officials a few minutes after Secretary of State Byrnes and Sir Alexander Cadogan, the British delegate, had a hasty conference at their hotel headquarters, then ordered cars to be ready to take them to Hunter college half an hour a-nead of the previous time. Officials said there appeared to be no question of Russian Ambassador Andrei Gromyko attend- IS* thla me * tin * any more than the public session, since he has announced that he will remain a-way from any of the gatherings concerning Iran.
