McNnrncy announced today Hint American air transport ighls between Vienna n n d Ucline had been cancelled until lurllior notice as a result of the downing of two of the planes by Yugoslav fighters. McNarney said he planned to confer with Gen. W. D. Morgan, allied cominnndcii'-in-cliief in the Mediterranean, on measures to protect the planes. He stressed Ilia tsuspension of the flights was "temporary" and Saying he had witnessed the downing of one of the unarmed American transport planes, Tito denied the craft was lost in the clouds or was fired upon after it landed. He admitted, however, tha'ti.aji'.American, plane had been forced; to land.

Yugoslavia granted clearance for Ihe embassy's C-47 to fly to Bled. Patterson's party wil include U.S. military attache, Col. Richard Partridge.

WILSON PARIS, Aug. 21. prime minister of Albanin, Envoi- lloxhn, demanded today that the peace conference seat him as an equal and asserted that.the Bal- kan state never would .consent to any changes in its borders "for those frontiers are sacred." Many of. his remarks were di- rected against Greece and its prime minister C'onstnnline Tsnl- daris, also a target of Soviet Rus- sia. Referring to Tsaldaris's men- tion of the Albanian quisling gov- ernment during the Italian occu- pation, he asserted that all who remained had been killed and 'those war criminals who fled are in the best hotels In Rome." Wants Friendship With Greeks He asked whether Tsaldaris would consider France an aggres- sor because Hitler hnd expected to wage aggression from French territory. It was from Albania, which Italy had seized as a pre- lude to the last war, that Mus- solini attacked Greece. Hoxha asserted that Albania would like to be friendly with the Greek people "but the Greek people have no influence in their government." He demanded thnt the peace treaty "put nn end to the aggres- sive, imperialistic policy of Italy." Wants Hoxhu asserted that Italy caused gold francs damage in Albania and demand- ed "as right, to be al- lowed to determine the amount and payment ot Italian repara- tions." Hoxha received n long burst of applause and so did Alfonso R. W. spokesman for who spoke next. The Mexican ambassador to Paris expressed his country's hope thnt "n just and equitable oeace will be concluded" with Italy thnt "will permit her to join with dignity in the concert 61! nations." Speaking of the defeated en- emy nations, the Mexican spokes- man said: "Mexico simply hopes to pre- vent the damages caused by a war imposed on her, from falling on the Mexican people." He in- dicated Mexico would ask com- pensjUion for "direct damages." i fc___________ Amount of Soldier Vote Is in Doubt Not Enough Came in After July 23 Election to Change Any Remits U. S.

The master stroke was deliver- ed with public announcement of this government's rejection of Soviet demands on the Dardanel- les. The broad outline of the form the rejection would take ha-l been known in advance, so thes significance was in the readiness of top American officials to de- clare flatly, if privately: Turning Hack There will be no turning hnc'x. from this rejection--no "Munich- like" settlement with Ihe Soviet Union over the strnlegic middle- eastern waterway.
