N. Council Postpones Decision After Heated Two Days Debate By JOHN" A. FARRIS. JR. LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y.. Sept. 28 The United Nations economic and social council posl- poned a decision tcfday on the controversial issue of Danubian freedom of navigation after Rus- sia had implied that she had no immediate intenlion of opening the Danube lo free navigation bo- iween the Soviet and American occupation zones. In closing a two-day debate. Chairman Andrija Slampar of Yugoslavia announced that a de- cision would be postponed until next week. This action was in- terpreted as a move designed to give some dole-gates an opportun- ity to obtain new insiruclions from their governments. A few minutes earlier Peru submitted a proposal to toss out of the council the bitter fight be- tween the United Slales and Rus- sia which saw the Soviet accuse the U. S. of direct interference in the internal affairs of countries involved in traffic on the Danube. Previously Ihe Soviet served notice on the U. S. that military measures in the Danubian area were of primary importance and asserted that changes of measures taken by Soviet military author- ities in the Russian occupation zone are nol possible. The Soviet declarations was made as a big split in the council developed over a U. S. proposal to convoke an international con- ference at Vienna to resolve prob- lems now obstrucling the resump- tion of international traffic on the Danube. Britain, Belgium and Lebanon lined up in support of the U. S. proposal but Peru and Chili came out in strong opposition, declar- ing that the council does not have the competence lo lake up the question of the conference on Yu- goslav and Czech demands -for restitution of vessels held by American occupalion authorities.

Right inches of leg below the Gangrene Set In The leg apparently didn't heal properly and gangrene set in and all of his leg except about one and a half inches below the knee had to be removed. Traveling conditions were rough about that time, so he was placed on the best method of travel available (a freight train) and sent back to Cherbourg, Prance, where he caught a boat to England. He wasn't in England long be- fore he caught another boat for the United States-.-and- was sent lo Brigham City, Utah.

Round-Upper Rodeo This Afternoon Only Club Members Eligible For Amateur Events, Pros To Do Own Matching Convinced Airmen Held in Bondage SHANGHAI. Sept. 28 Private reports .from Chenglu to- night said U. S, Army investiga- tors were convinced that five American airmen.-actually Were being held in bondage by the savage Lolo tribesmen of west- ern China and that all were in good health. The reports were taken here to mean that a full-scale attempt would be made quickly to :res- cue the men who are believed to have been prisoners since they crashed in the mountains near the TibeUin-Burmese borders prob- ably two years ago. T h e American investigators went to Chengtu, in Szeehwan province, to determine whether vague reports of such prisoners were sufficiently valid to warrant' a difficult and expensive libera- tion expedition.

Woodward Flooded By Heavy Rainfall Showers to' Moderate Rains Reported Over Much Of Oklahoma By The Associated Freu A torrential rainfall of nearly three inches fell at Woodward Saturday, flooding the-downtown business district and stalling scores of automobiles on the city's downtown streets. Storm sewers could not cope with the torrents and water swirled up over curbings and lapped in the doors of downtown Woodward shops: Little property damage was re- ported although the water also, reached flood stage in. cellars of many residential areas. Elsewhere in Oklahoma, show- ers to moderate rains were re- ported. Light showers ranged as far west as Beaver, while Way- noka had thundershowers. and Gage reported moderate rains at mid-afternoon. Taloga, some 40 miles fc.om reported .only heavy clouds and no rain- fall. T h e weatherman predicted scattered rains in the western part of the state would end Sun- day with clear skies prevailing.

The king, returning after five years .-of c.xile, stepped upon u quay carpeted with olive branches intended as a'symbol of his hopes of bending up Greece's wounds and was received by an outwardly tumultous welcome from, thousands of Greeks shout- ing ''long live the king" and "greater Greece." The king went into a political conference almost immediately, received Tsaldaris' resignation as premier of the royalist-dominated government and then appointed him to head the new regime. Tsaldaris announced he would call upon the leaders of the op- position parties in parliament for consultation on the formation of the new government. The communist press greeted the king's return with stony in- difference, playing down the story and referring to him only ag "George." Later the king appeared on the balcony of: the parliament build- old royal palace. His appearance was the signal for parades of various groups and organizations, with perhaps the most colorful of them all the Roy- alist.. Cretans, who wore blue pleated bloomers, black scarves tied around their heads and gold- nilted daggers at their waists. For more than an hour after the king appeare'd the giant crowd milled around Con- stitution square, shouting. Rigging Up To Tesl Block In Sec. 16 Norris-Crowell Well American Proposal WwiU Bar Yugoslavia From Rep- arations If She Persists By LOUIS NEVIN PARIS, Sept. 28. The peace conference approved txiiy the "French line" as a frontier between Italy and Yugoslavia and the establishment of the in- ternationalized zone, of Trieste, and Yugoslavia defiantly an- nounced she would not sign the Italian treaty nor withdraw troops from the disputed area. Over strenuous Soviet-Slav ob- jections the delegates then by an 11 to 8 vote retaliated by insert- ing into the treaty an American proposal which would bar slavia from collecting any of the reparations she is claiming from Italy if she persists in her stand. The vote was not two-thirds majority, however. Connally Confldeat The action took place in the Italian political commit lion, where U. S. Senator Tom Con- nally declared of Yugoslavia's threat "no one is trembling in boots." He .predicted outside the conference that Yugoslavia "on reflection nnd consideration" would eventually sign the treaty. Soviet Delegate Andrei Vishin- sky charged that the American article barring Yugoslavia' from privileges of the treaty "violated" the Big Four agreement in the council of foreign minister? and had "hidden aims" behind it. His Statement indicated Russia would oppose the article both in the conference plenary session and in the foreign ministers' council. "Won't Be Vice Premier Edvard Kardel} of Yugoslavia asserted 'Hie-article was a "dictate" and represents threat and an attempt to intimi- date Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia hats shown by its four years of-fight- ing that it will not yield to in- timidation." The American proposal, pre- sented by U. S.

The first blow was dealt by Olney F. Flynn, republican nom- inee for governor, who asserted that his democratic foe, Roy J.

And that Flynn- therefore offered nothing campaign, particularly after Gov. Robert S. Kerr had taken a stand directly opposite to that of Tur- ner..and Joe C. Scott, Democratic President of the State Board of Agriculture, on the meat ceiling question. x Kerr lined up alongside the president in Ins decision that meat ceilings should not be re- moved, while both Turner and who have "selfish interests or who are dishonest" should be ex- posed, he said. That statement brought an im- mediate demand from Hinds, who is also speaker of the house, that Flynn should "tell us which mem- bers of the legislature are dis- honest." "It is reasonable to believe that a democratic governor will be able to work more Jinrmoniously Scott were hammering for a lift-1illlcl. effectively with the two ing of meat price controls.

Another issue being hammered by Turner is that the next leg- .islature is certain to be demo- cratic and that a republican gov- ernor could not get a program through the legislature. Flynn replied that he could which Turner has not offered. work with anybody who had the bodies of the legislature, which will be ulmo.st certainly demo- he said. Both nominees will be on the road in the coming week, each in quest of votes in areas where the strength of their respective parties is weakest. Flynn will go into the south- west, visiting Cordell, El'" City and Sayre Monday; Mangum, Granite, Hobart and Altus Tues- Frederick, Wallers and Law- ton Wednesday; Temple, Waurika and Duncan Thursday, and will return to Oklahoma City Friday. Turner will be at Drumright and Bartlesville Tuesday; Med- ford, Cherokee and Enid Wed- nesday; Fairview, Waynoka and Alva Thursday, and Watonga and Kingfisher Saturday.
