German Election Returns Compiled ConMrvotivet Win In French one, Communist! In Russian Areat BERLIN. Sept. .In. complete returns from municipal and rural elections in Germany Sunday indicated the conservative Christian Socialists had won in the French zone, independents he-id a slim lead in the British zone and the communist-domina- ted socialist unity party ran far ahead in the Russian-occupied province of Brandenburg and Mecklenburg. In the predominately Catholic French area, the communists trailed far behind the Christian Socialists, corresponding to the Christian Democratic union in the British and American zones. In- dependents, because of the local nature of the elections, also piled up a considerable vote. Unofficial returns compiled by the French military government showed the Christian Socialists ahead in all sections, the Saar- land, Baden-Baden, the Palatin- ate and the Rhineland. The combined returns: Chris- tian Socialists Socialists 493.086; Independents communists. Liberal democrats of the Palatinate got votes in the Palatinate.

Buildings Begin to Bulge In no department will there be an open and closed event as there are almost a maximum of exhibits. In fact, the sides of every building at the Fairgrounds are bulging. Heretofore, the Pontotoc coun- ty fair has been' somewhat of a backwoods proposition, but this year it will compare favor- ably with any county lair in the state and the reason is that more people have taken more interest in the officials say. It is the only time during the year when a farmer has a chance to have his production judged in competition wtth his neighbor's crops. At previous county fairs, a room in the Armory has been used for poultry exhibits, but this year hogs, sheep, poultry and rabbits are being housed in Barn No. 1. Open class Jerseys and Guernseys are in Barn No. 2, open class Milking Shorthorns and Holsteins are in -barn No. 3.

Would Make It Symbol Of World Peace Senator Declares World Peace More Important Than Territory, National Pride By JOSEPH DVNAN PARIS, Sept. Tom Connally, replying to Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov, today demanded that the peace conference establish Trieste as a truly free slate, independent of both Yugoslavia and Italy. Citing the principles on Trieste agreed upon by the foreign min- isters council, Connally asserted these agreements should be hon- ored for the sake of peace. "Let us make Trieste the sym- bol of peace and security in the the Texas senator urged. Refers To Agreement Connally referred to the agreed portions of Article 16 of the Ital- peace treaty, giving the United Nations security council respon- sibility for maintaining the integ- rity and independence of Trieste, along with the right to name Triesl's governor and to supervise its government. He recalled the Soviet Union had also agreed to these provis- ions, despite Molotov's statement Saturday that the Trieste assem- bly should be all-powerful, and that "foreign troops" should evac- uate the city 30 days after the treaty is effective. "The United Nations security council has the primary respon- sibility to preserve and maintain the peace in the Connally said-. "That is in harmony with our objective here." Must Be "Real Stale" Connally, who is chairman ol the U. S. Senate's foreign rela- tions committee, addressed the Italian political commission. He said Trieste must not be "merely a paper state." "It must be a real state, with its own character, its its own independence and its own dignity. "The free territory must not be a satellite of Yugoslavia on one hand nor of Italy on the other. Both Yugoslavia and Italy must accept our settlement in good faith. "There must be no mental res- he declared, glancing around the table as if to warn boll) nations. The senator made no reference to the controversy arising from last week's speech by secretary of commerce on Ameri- can foreign policy. Instead, he de- voted nearly all his speech to com- ment on the Trieste proposals made Saturday by Mololov and echoed this morning by the Yugo- slav deputy premier, Edvard Kar- delj. In an hour-long speech, Kar- delj declared western powers were attempting to "draw a heavy iron curtain around the Mediterranean sea." Europe Has Duty. For Peace Connally asserted Europe, which had produced two world wars, must do its duty for peace. "World he said, "is more important than a few miles of territory or national pride. The challenge to peace is here, right here on our doorstep, right here on this table. Trieste must not be another Danzig. It must be free from intrigue and con- spiracy." Here Connally omitted a sen- tence from his prepared speech reading, "we cannot tolerate an- other a reference to the assassination in Bosnia which sparked world war one.
