WASHINGTON, Sept. 20 The United States today 'denoun- ced as "false and exaggerated" charges of improper treatment of: Yugoslav officers. Simultaneously this country demanded coopera- tion from Marshal Tito's govern- ment in efforts to halt "obstruc- tive and terroristic activities of pro-Slav elements" in the Anglo- American zone of disputed Ze- nezia Giulia, In a note made public three days after it was handed to the Yugoslav Ministry of Foreign Af- fairs by American Ambassador Patterson, the United States em- phasized lhat it "will not be de- flected from its course" of main- taining a "fair and impartial ad- ministration" in the zone under its control. "At the same the state- ment said, however, "it must once against deplore in the strongest terms the failure of the Yugoslav Lhe cooperation to which the government to accord in this task United States government be- lieves itself entitled." Answers Two Notes The 1700- word statement con- stituted the American .answer to two notes of protest from Tito's jovcrnment one dated July 26 ho other Aug. 14 which spelled out accusations of "improper trualment" of Yugoslav officers and jnen in the Anglo-American zone. The United States note went on to say that "the obstructive and terroristic activities of pro- Slav elements" in the disputed zone "consliute in themselves a reply to many of the complaints leveled by the Yugoslav govern- ment." Although firm in tone, the note reflected improvement in diplo- matic relations between the two countries since the release of American airmen who were held after Yugoslav fighters forced down their plane. Five other Americans died in a second Yugo- slav fighter attack. The ultimatum demanding re- lease of the imprisoned men was stripped of police diplomatic par- lance. This time, however, the note opened with "compliments" to the foreign ministry, and ended with renewed "assurance of its high consideration." Britain's ambassador to Bel- grade delivered an almost iden- tical note, London dispatches said Prelude lo Winter Arrives In Mild Temperature Drop A prelude to winter cold waves blew into Ada late Thursday and whipped the temperature down to 58 degrees during the night.

A usually reliable source said the action, if it is decided upon at tonight's meeting, might start tomorrow.

Joseph Curran, president of the NMU, said after a meeting of the CIO committee for mari- time unity, that he believed that a membership meeting of the un- ion today could "result in the men's going back to and lhat he would recommend such a things being equal." He defined to elaborate fur- ther on the phrase "all things be ing equal." Curran also announced that the union was in receipt of a tele- gram from J. Gorfrey Butler, labor director of the U. S.

Byrnes Declares Ht Can't Permit Split Ovar Policy to Endan- ger Foreign Relationt By JOHN M. HIGHTOWEE WASHINGTON, Sept. 20. President Truman today fired Henry Wallace as secretary of commerce in a dramatic reaf- firmation of this country's stand at the Paris peace conference. Wallace bowed out of cab- inet with the terse announcement that "I shall continue to fight for peace." His aides told re- porters, however, that he "will make no campaign speeches this fall." Mr. Truman gnvc his "full en- dorsement" to the policies being pursued nt the Paris pence con- ference by Secretary of State By- rnes and the American delega- tion. "Our foreign policy as estab- lished by the congress, the presi- dent and the secretary of stale remains in full force and effect without the president declared. Party Split rouiblc While: solidifying American foreign policy abroad, the cab- inet upheave) was viewed as pre- saging a possible split fn the democratic parly's fight for con- gressional seats this November. Mr. Truman said his removal of the last of the late President Roosevelt's "new deal" secre- taries was done in friendly fash- ion. After a telephone conversation with the president. Wallace ad- dressed a letter to him as "Dear Harry" saying simply: "As you requested, here is my resignation. I shall continue to fight for peace. I am sure th.it you will approve and will join me in that great endeavor. "Respectfully" This turn of events caught capital by such surprise that no one would venture a guess im- mediately as to Wallace's succes- sor. Until, one is chosen, the depart- ment will bo in charge of Under- secretary Alfred Schindlcr, who is now on the west coast. No Immediate Bruce Cation, Wallace's direc- tor of information, told a news conference Dial his chief will not participate in the congressional campaign but has not decided whether he will take to the radio in furtherance of his for American foreign policy changes.

Gallon said, it effective immediately. At a news conference which broke up as soon as the president finished reading' his terse formal statement, Mr. Truman also laid down a flat rule lhat no member of the executive branch of the government may hereafter make any statement in conflict "with, our established foreign policy." The president s.viid that there was a "fundamental conflict" be- tween Wallace's "views on foreign policy and 'those of the adminis- tration." "We could he said, "per- mit this conflict to jeopardize our position in relation to other coun- tries." Standing before a jammed news conference, Mi1. Truman read his statement slowly. It climaxed a week of furore over foreign pol- icy which began when Wallace proposed some changes. The pres- ident said first he had approved what Wallace said. Then he de- clared Saturday that he meant only that he approved Wallace's right lo speak.
