Eisenhower Is Hopeful Says Too Much Pessimism, That International Coop- eration Is Growing BERLIN, Sept. back in Berlin where the Big Four powers are cooper- ating in running occupied Ger- many, said today that there was "too much pessimism in the world about international relations and too much discounting of progress that is being made." "We have evidence he told a news conference, "that in- ternational cooperation is not a dead- issue in the world, but something that is growing and will 'continue to grow." As he spoke, Eisenhower was flanked by Gen. Joseph T. Mc- Narney, commander of U. S. forces in Europe, and Lt. Gen. Lu- cius D. Clay, deputy American military governor. During his stay in Frankfurt Eisenhower made a special flight to Luxembourg, where he placed a wreath of red roses on the grave of "my old friend" Gen. George S. Patton, Jr. The XL S. command- er was enthusiastically received by the populace, who lined the streets to greet him. Can't Visit All Places Lt. Gen. John C. H. Lee, U. S. commander in the Mediterranean theater, told newsmen yesterday the chief of staff had abandoned plans for visiting Austria and then Italy on this trip. The plans had called for Eisenhower to go to Vienna Oct. 15. Eisenhower told the news con- ference he had not definitely de- cided to cancel the proposed vis- its, but that "I doubt I'll be able to visit all the places I want to" because of prior commitments in Britain. Is Encouraged Speaking of the world situation, he said: "After all, the world has just completed the greatest global war in history. Whole economics have been disrupted. Pe'ople have been worried about future, about their own personal futures. Pos- sibly only a 'few leaders in t h e world are thinking clearly. "Yet I here and hear that the Allied control council is Don't Split Those Notes Uncle Sam Charges Trio With Splitting Federal Reserve Notes Here Charges have been filed in fed- eral court against three Adans following their arrest Friday. They are alleged to have split several federal reserve notes. John B. Osborn, agent in charge of U. S. Secret Service in Okla- homa City, was in Ada Saturday morning investigating the inci- dent. The thing that the three are charged with is not a simple pro- cess. They are alleged to have taken a bill, splitting it down the middle, leaving twos bills. To make the splitting process less conspicuous, a bill was split in the same manner and pasted to the bill. The three being held include Paul Andrew Faulknerberry, 25, his wife, Billie Jean Faulkenber- ry, 16, and Lee Roy Blankenship, 17. Officers have no idea of how many .such bills were passed in Ada, but evidence has been found in at least two cases. It is reported that one of the three persons purchased some whiskey from an Ada man and gave him the currency that had been worked over. The .person who sold the whiskey is alleged I to have reported the incident to race and Brooks was sec- ment ond. _ __ Related Training (lasses lor Vets Start 'Organizing Tuesday Night; Required This Year For In-Training Vets All veterans engaged in 'in training' work are reminded that this year it is required that each take at least 100 hours of related training classwork.

DefendanU Expect Before the the judg- ment was an-hour and a half un- der way. Hermann Goering, once the No. 2 Nazi, virutally conceded that he was on the way to the gallows by telling defense law- yers: "I did not expect that they would go through all this to kill us." Most of the defendants appear- ed reconciled to the belief they would be condemned to death. The tribunal rejected flatly the plea of some of the defendants that their acts had been com- mitted under orders from Adolf Hitler. "Hitler could not make aggres- sive war by himself; he had to have the cooperation of German military leaders, diplomats, and the judgment said. "With the knowledge of hii aims they gave their cooperation and made themselves party to the plan he had initiated. That they who under the extended draft law must serve 18 months.
