"That note was delivered two weeks before the first plane was shot down." he said.

United States is considering fighter plane protection for American transport planes which to pass near the Yugoslav b o r d e r while flying the Austrian-Italian route, top diplomatic au- thorities reported today. The plan under consideration would retain the present absolute ban against any American flights over Yugoslav ter- ritory and would be designed to protect American aircraft from attack by Yugoslav fighter planes which might venture over Austria. The whole consideration is based on a point made in the ul- Ex-GI Says P-51's Used American Describes Seeing Fighter Planes Shoot Down Transport Plane By JOHN P. McNIGHT TRIESTE, Aug. American who saw the U. S. army transport shot down nt the Yugoslavia frontier Monday said today, the Yugoslav fighter planes appeared .to be of American manufacture. Yugoslavia received of war supplies, including planes, under the lend lease program during the war. The eyewitness, a former sol- dier with combat experience in .Italy., Jus name, not be used, said the sound of the planes' motors and their lines convinced him that they were American P-51 Mustangs. The American said he witness- ed the incident from a hotel win- dow in bed after he was attracted by the noice of the fighter planes passing overhead. He added that he himself heard no sound of shooting, but that other witnesses in the street told him later they heard four or five loud explosions resembling can- non fire. Burning On Way Down "It was he said, "that the transport plane was hit in the air and was burning on the way down. He added that he saw no para- chutes, but that others told him later two persons parachuted from the stricken plane. He said the two planes, far ex- ceeding the slow transport in speed and maneuverability, gave chase to the transport over Bled as it was proceeding northward, apparently returning to Austria. "They overtook the transport plane over the mountain across the Jake from Bled and made several passes at he said. "The plane then 'went into a slow turn, as though it were about to return to Bled to Innd Then the fighter planes dived again, and the plane fell off into a spin and spiraled to the ground with great clouds of black smoke coming out of it.

"Many persons in the streets cheered as the fighter passed over he said. (A dispatch from Belgrade, the Yugoslav capital, said the best information available there was that no British, or American types of fighter planes were being used at present by the Yugoslavs. Rus- sian-type Stormoviks which are being used look something like British Spitfires, the dispatch said.

TULSA JUDGE TO APPEAL HIS FINE FOR SPEEDING the two airplanes already attack- ed by Yugoslav fighters niay not have been over Yugoslavia at all. The American note, demand- ing release of any of the 15 per- sons in the two planes who are still declared that for the time being the United States makes "no statement as to the exact location of the two planes when they were attacked." May File Complaint In U. N, Undersecretary of State Ache- son today called in Ambassador Herschel Johnson for a confer- ence, presumably to discuss ths possibilities of filing an Ameri- can complaint againsl Yugosla- via in the U. N. security council if the Yugoslavs do not comply with the 48-hour ultimatum. The exact time the ultimatum period ends has not been official- ly determined. The question is whether the time begins to run from the hour at which Yugoslav foreign office received the text from its Washington embassy or when the American embassy in Belgrade received it. State department officials told reporters there probably would be some determination of the time elements later in the day. Attackers Not Lend-Lease Planes Considerable interest was man- ifested by officials here m re- ports that American-made fight- er planes reaching through Jend-lease chnnnels may have been involved in the shoot- ing down of American transport planes on Aug. 9 and Aug. 19. However, a stale department in- formant said the only planes lend-Jcased to Yugoslavia were three trainer and one small cargo craft.
