BYRNES CALLS FOR A UNIFIED GERMANY: Secretary of State James F. Byrnes, addressing German officials and U. S. military leaders in the tank-guarded Staats Theater .in Stuttgart, Germahy, urged the early establishment of a unified rejected France's claim to the Rhineland and Rhur and warned Russia that the United States does not consider Germany's eastern boundary fixed on the river. Behind Byrnes, are, left to right, Robert Murphy; Senator Arthur Vandenberg; Senator Tom Connally, and General Joseph T. Big Four Ask U. N. To Postpone Meet From September 23 PARIS, Sept. for- eign ministers council, agreeing to a proposal by Soviet Russia, asked the United Nations, gen- eral assembly today to postpone for one moftth its scheduled Sept. 23 meeting in New York to avoid conflict with-the Paris peace con- ference. At the same time informed quarters reported that the for- eign ministers had decided to meet in New York next month to present to the assembly the peace treaties which the confer- ence is now drafting for Italy, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria and Finland. The ministers also would begin drafting treaties lor Germany and Austria at that lime, these quarters said. The United States did not join in the request for postponement of the general assembly meeting, but did not offer any objection. Britain associated hersel" "pro- visionally" wilh the request, re- serving final decision pending a telephone conference today be- tween A. V. Alexander, who at- tended the foreign ministers' meeting, and Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin, who has returned to London for discussions on Pal- estine. France joined with Russia in supporting the move, also favor- ed by China and Belgium, who were inviled to sit in with the Big Four. The ministers' decision was taken at a five-hour meeting which began last night after U. S. Secretary of State James F. Byrnes' return from Germany, and continued into the early morning. Russia has maintained for some time that the general assembly meeting should be postponed to avoid conflict with the peace par- ley. Byrnes from the beginning has taken the position that the assembly meeting should be held on schedule in order not to de- tract from the prestige of that organization. The meeting of the foreign ministers stole the spotlight tem- porarily from the peace confer- ence itself, now entering its sev- enth week. Debate over the touchy question of Trieste con- tinued today when the Italian political and territorial commis- sion convenes.

The councilmen desire that the public be given an opportunity to be heard on'all matters in which they are. interested, and that the public be kept fully informed on what the city government is do- ing and why it is doing it. It is probable that a further public hearing will be given the ordin- ance on a night later in.the week, Mayor Frank Spencer said Mon- day. The the price of everything the 'city has to buy, the necessity of hiring more po- licemen, firemen 'and other em- ployees, the fact that the city will-receive no operating income from ad; valorem taxes, the fact that practically all the city's equipment is. worn and other facts make it necessary to find additional revenue. The council points out that the federal government will spend over for every man, woman and ctiild. in the nation this year. The total: operational cost of the City'of Ada per man, woman and child will be only about for the year; this covers water serv- ice, police and fire protection, garbage disposal, upkeep of the city -government.

There was more than a sprink- link of World War II veterans there; in fact, one college official put it as 'lots of veterans.' The enrollment rush of Mon- day is expected to be duplicated on Tuesday and there will be still others arriving during the remainder of the week even as classes begin their schedule of instruction.

Allies Patrol Trieste Today Break Up Pro-Yugoslav Demonstration Staged In Defiance of AMG Ban By MICHAEL GOLDSMITH TRIESTE, Sept. 9 U. S. and allied military police patrolled the streets of troubled Trieste today following an out- break of violence yesterday dur- ing which they opened fire to disperse a pro-Yugoslav demon- stration held in defiance of a military government ban. Seven Americans and one Briton were injured during the melee. Trieste was declared off limits to all Allied military personnel not on duty in the disputed city. All shore leave was cancelled for men of the U. S. cruiser Hunt- ington and of several smaller ships in the harbor. Police also patrolled Gorizia, 25 miles north of here, where American troops broke up a simi- lar demonstration yesterday. The crowds-way scattered without ser- ious incident. The Trieste demonstration, staged in defiance of AMG re- fusal to grant a permit, was sche- duled to coincide with the anni- versary of the Venezia Giulia partisan uprising on Sept. 8, 1943 incidentally with the anni- versary of Italian surrender. For several days prior to the- incident, the Communist press had openly declared an intention to defy the prohibition. The seven sol- diers and Associated Press pho- tographer Daniel Jacino of New York were wounded when a hand grenade was tossed from a win- dow in the San Giacomo district. A British officer was also re- ported to have been injured. Ja- cino suffered a. leg, wound from a steel.fragment. Three soldiers were'-hospitalized: A company .of American mili- tary police raided the house from which the grenade was thrown and arrested two suspects.

Postal officers urged however that packages -for soldiers in more distant places, such as Korea, be mailed in October. OPA Ceiling Tags Back on More Hems On Canned Meats, Lard, Shortening Today, Back On Fresh Meat Tuesday WASHINGTON. Sept. 9, OPA ceiling tags go back on can- ned meats, lard and shortening today. Tomorrow they return to fresh meat, thus completing the farm- es-to-consumer chain started when the price decontrol board ordered livestock products brought back under price con- trol. OPA has 'announced that the canned meat prices will be roll- ed back to June 30. levels. Lard is due to average five'and one-half cents a pound more and margarine and salad oils about one cent more for the usual con- sumer-size container. The ceilings on fresh meats will average three and one-half cents up from June 30 but con- siderably below recent prices, the agency has said. Some .cuts will be as much as 16 cents a pound higher than they last sold under OPA tags. Despite industry predictions of a new famine, officials insist that the ,prospect of a return-to rationing is remote.

Diplomatic officials hooked up in sharp debate today over whether Secretary of State Byrnes' speech at Stuttgart will help establish one world 'or two.

Palestine Railway Cut in SO Places, Oil flow Disrupted By JOSEPH C. GOODWIN JERUSALEM, Sept. British information officer an- nounced today the Palestine rail- way had been cut in 50 places, the flow of. oil to the port of Haifa disrupted and two persons killed in a series of outbreaks coinciding with the opening of British-Arab talks in London. Explosions and gunshots broke out in various sections of the Holy Land. The information, offi- cer said these incidents were ''ap- parently part of a larger Jewish terrdr campaign which partially failed because of a break in tim- ing." The officer said he believed the campaign was planned by either Hagaria or Irgun Zvai Leumi (Jewish underground probably Irgun, as a demonstra- tion of strength to coincide with the opening of the London con- ference, which the Jews so far have shunned. "We believe this morning's blastings of the railway at sev- eral points was planned to coin- cide with yesterday's explosions at the Haifa port he said, "but something went wrong." (An authoritative source in London said Britain "might soon have to invite the Jewish agency to participate in the Palestine talks" on its own hood within an adequate to prevent failure of the confer- ence.

The debate also pits those who favor patience and conciliation toward Russia against those who believe a working basis with possible at be achieved only by bold diplo- macy. The one-time "hard" peace ad- vocates are sharply critical of (he Byrnes speech. So are those who favor a conciliatory attitude to- ward Russia, Criticize Three Points' These persons, saying that By- nes virtually abandoned the Potsdam Big Three pact at StvutlRart, center their criticism around these chief points: 1. Byrnes may have ended serious attempts at a collective, four-power approach to German problems with his assertion that the United the absence of a Big Four agreement to treat Germany as an economic will proceed to unify its zone economically with any others willing to go along. 2. Some of his statements were made primarily for political pur- poses to curry German favor for the United States as against Russia. 3. The effect of the speech may be to drive Russia into deeper economic and political isolation from western countries, thus in- creasing the probability of an eventual east-west showdown. Who Quit Potsdam First? Byrnes' supporters they un- questionably include President Truman and most top slate de- partment that the speech in a sense was a departure from Potsdam. But, they ask, who failed in the first instance to fulfill the Potsdam terms? They contend the original vio- lations of Potsdam were (1) Soviet and French unwillingness to go along with the economic unification and (2) Russia's in- sistence on exacting reparations from current German produc- tion. Because Germany from an economic standpoint actually has been four countries instead of one, the United States has had to pour food and supplies into the American 7-onc at an annual cost of about Britain's; bill, has been even higher. By unifying the two zones; es- tablishing central administrative agencies, and pO9ling resources, American and British occupation authorities may be able to bring the Germans closer to n selfsup- porting basis and cut down these vast outlays, the Byrnes backers say. Had To Be Some Risk They add that if Byrnes play- ed politics in seeking German favor, his efforts did not exceed those of Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov in the latter's statement on Germany from Paris July 10. Byrnes' supporters concede that the immediate effect of the speech may be to widen the breach between the United States and Russia and continue the stalemate on the allied control council in Ber- lin. They note, however, that Byr- AFL Seamen Firm in Stand Won't Return to Work Un- til WSB Cuts Sc ped, Granted By The Amocliltd Pren Joseph Cm-ran, leader of 000 National Maritime Union (CIO) seamen, reaffirmed his support of the nationwide strike by AFL seamen for restoration of a wage stabilization board "pay cut" today and declared he would demand a matching raise for his men. The announcement came as the greatest shipping strike in history entered its fifth day with the idleness of a half million men and every seaport in the coun- try strangling international com- merce and affecting many do- mestic industries. WSB Meets Tuenday The WSB, which rolled back AFL raises of S22.50 on the west coast and on the east to a month, meets in Wash- ington tomorrow to reconsider its decision. Strike leaders said only an out- right reversal would bring a "back-to-work" order. "The manner in which increases were given to the AFL after our negotiations was an unfair prop- Curran said. "Certainly now if they give them increases we're going to de- mand the same thing. If they want to stabilize the industry they should do it once and for all." Navy Helps One Liner U. S. Navy equipment and per- sonnel were used today for the first time to bring ashore pas- sengers from a strike-bound liner. The Marine Tiger arrived in New York from Puerto Rico with 887 passengers and navy barges were sent out into'the harbor to disembark them. The Tiger js operated for the mari- time commission. Hope for a truce in the itrike was given up by a labor depart- ment mediator in San Francisco. Harry Lundeberg, leader of the striking AFL seamen whose picket lines are toeing re- spected by another AFL, and CIO seamen. Stevedores, Teamsters and other maritime workers, reiterated late last night that his men not return to work until wage cuts ordered by the war stabilization board are scrapped. Lundeberg, president of the striking sailors union of the Pa- cific and the Seaferers interna- tional union, said in n radio ad- dress that the walkout would continue "until the politicians in Washington" approve the wage increases the S1U and SUP ne- gotiated with the shipowners. WSB Meets Tuesday Assistant Secretary of Labor Phillip Hannah, who flew from Washington to see Lundeberg in the hope of arranging a truce', an- nounced last night after the last of several meeting: with the union leader that he had been unsuccessful in his negotiations and was leaving at once for Washington. The Wai- Stabilization Board is scheduled to meet tomorrow in Washington to reconsider its Aug. 23 ruling limiting AFL sea- men to wage increases of amount awarded to CIO seamen. The AFL unions had negotiated increases with ship- owners of S22.50 on the west coast and 527.50 on the east coast. Between and deep water ships were paralyzed by the strike as it went into its fifth day and 400 tugboats in New York harbor were tied up at their piers. ------------K------------ Five coastal New Jersey coun- ties waged a 10-year war on mos- quitoes.
