Sept. 25. h e Moscow radio, commenting on Prime Minister Stalin's assertion that he could see no real danger of a new war. broadcast today a declaration that there were "few countries where so much clamor was beine raised" about a new war as in the United Stales. "American publications are trying to create the impression that war is inevitable, that it may break out at any moment and that preparations for this war are being speeded up." the commen- tator Analyzer said in an English language broadcast. He said Hep. Robert L. F. Sikcs (D-Fla) and flop.

Analyzer said, "do not reflect the interests of the common people of the world, who long for real security and a just and lasting peace." The British press, meanwhile, front-paged world reaction to Stalin's statements and filled ed- itorial columns with expressions of welcome for the Soviet prime minister's wor.ds. The times urged the labor gov- ernment to revise its foreign policy to a "middle course" be- tween the "extreme positions" ot the United Stales, and Soviet Russia. 'The editorial implied strong criticism of the recent course followed by British For- eign Secretary Ernest Bevin. "II the issue which lies behind rnany of the debates in Paris is the issue between Adam Smith and Karl Marx, between an Am- erica leaning towards unregulat- ed private enterprise and a Soviet predilection for a fully regimented economy, Great Brit- ain is committed to neither ex- treme." the Times said. Britain, the paper continued, w a s committed economically even before the labor govern- ment came to power "to seek Fteo by step and stage by stage that habitable halfway house v.'hich a large part of the world is now seeking."

Civil War' Government Starts' Stern to Cruih Rebel- lion in Northern Areas By ARTHUR GAVSHON LONDON, Sept. 25 and British government officials today labelled the mounting vio- lence in northern Greece outright civil war and disclosed that stern measures were under way to crush the rebellion. A British foreign office spokes- aii said the Greek government had given British representatives in Athens evidence indicating that leftist forces attacking the gerndarmerie .in the north were being armed from "Yugoslavia1 and Albania." He adriecl that British troops in Greece could be called upon to act only "in a last and would not be used unless the Greek government specifically requested such aid. Not Order But War Greek Premier Constantin Tsal- daris said in a Salonika speech that the disorders no longer posed a question of order but a. question of and declared "the tirute will emerge victorious by using all the means at its disposal and without any hesitancy in taking uny measurers." New outbreaks we're reported in dispatches from Macedonia, where, the Greek press ministry said, a strong band of leftists at- tacked the village Pendalophos and were repulsed in a sharp bat- tle in which 23 attackers died. Town Recaptured The ministry said it confirmed a report that the town 'of Deskate, captured three days ago by leftists, was recaptured by gov- ernment forces in a battle in which the leftists. lost 80 killed, 178 captured and many wounded. On the eve of King George II's return to his throne, the'Greek government presented evidence to the British that the forces now being opposed by Greek hoops were being armed "from the out- the spokesman said. Press- ed to identify the countries in- volved, the official said they were 'Yugoslavia and he added, however, that nofunits of foreign troops were involved, so Ear as he knew. "We have no reason to doubt trie Greek government's evi- -he said. He said that military measures being taken by Greek government forces were not the result of con- sultations with the British com- mander-in-chief in Greece. The foreign office spokesman explained that maintenance of law and order in Greece was first oi all the responsibility of the Greek gendarmerie. If the gen- darmerie is unable to cope with the situation, he said, the Greek army could intervene. He added that British troops could be used only if there was a request from the Greek .government.

The ships, part of the joint army-navy task force that carried men through the Bikini tests, are berthed on the, west coast and at Pearl Harbor. the quarantined ships was in 'the target area when the test bombs exploded. The announcement said an un- expected ''radioactive residue" was found in the salt water lines and condensers of some of the returning, vessels when they un- derwent a. precautionary check. "We have not had any casual- ties from radioactivity during operation crossroads nnd'we most certainly are not going to tuke any chances said Capt. George M. Lyon, task force safe- ty officer. "This largely unforeseen result of the atomic bomb he added in a statement, "is another example of the great value of these tests to our country and to the armed forces. ''Without these tests much val- uable information of this type might, have gone undiscovered until actual casualties occurred, very possibly in some peacetime development in the use of atomic energy." No Danger to Workmen The announcement said there is no danger to anyone not working on the ships, nor are harbors or docking facilities affected. repair or maintenance work on the vessels has been suspend- ed until radiological experts can carry out decontamination work. To the surprise of test officials, radioactive residue was found in water pipes nnri conclcnfffers of ships arriving on the west coast. An immediate quarantine of all vessels affected was ordered and a special safety school has been set up in Washington to train 100 officers quickly for decontamina- tion duty. Ships affected are berthed nt Sun Diegn, Sun Frnncisco, Los Angeles, Scuttle and at Pearl Harbor.

An OPA official told a reporter ceilings for consumer packages of these items will have to be raised "at least two cents" as a result of a decision by Stabiliza- tion Director John, R.

Steelman, called in to arbitrate a dispute between OPA and the agriculture sided with the latter agency in an- nouncing his decision last night. The agriculture department had contended that a price boost was necessary to assure adequate production of cottonseed oil. Un- der the new price control law the department has authority to order an increase on this ground. OPA took the stand that all that was needed to get produc- tion rolling was an announce- ment that 'the government con- templated no increase in ceilings for this.oil, or for oil made from soy beans, corn and peanuts.
