Backing Turks Against Russ Demand Intends re Keep Voice In Control of Derdenollet, Opposes Rustient WASHINGTON, Oct. United States, strongly backing Turkey against Russian demands for a dominant position on the Dardanelles, has advised Moscow that this country does not intend to be squeezed out of a voice in control of the strategic waterway. At the same time, in a note de- livered in the Russian capital Wednesday and released for pub- lication today, the state depart- ment emphasized anew its oppos- ition to a Russian proposal to take over a direct share in the defense of the Black Sea gate- way. The communication, delivered by Ambassador Walter Bedell Smith, constituted the American reaction to Russian proposals for direct conversations with Turkey or revision of the control ar- rangements for the straits, and for Russian participation in de- fense. Recalls Three Agreement Smith reminded the Russian government that the Big Three had agreed at Potsdam that they would propose to Turkey their views on revision of the Mon- treux convention, which now sets up the rules for use of the Dar- danelles. "My government docs not con- Smith said, "that it was contemplated at the Potsdam con- ference that the direct conversa- tions which might take place be- tween any one of the three sig- natory governments and the Turkish government with regard to the regime of the convention of the straits concluded at Mon- treux should have the effect of prejudicing the participation of the other two signatory powers in the revision of the regime of the straits. "On the. contrary, my govern- ment considers that the Potsdam agreement definitely contempla- ted only an exchange of views with the Turkish government a useful preliminary to a con- ference of all of the interested powers, including the United States, to consider the revision of the Montreux convention."

Convict Farmhand In Stabbing Death TUCUMCARI. N. M., Oct. 11, A. Murruy, Tom- PC, Ariz., farmhand, was convict- ed of first degree murder by n district court jury last night and immediately sentenced to life im- prisonment. The charges grew out of the stabbing near here on June 4 of Finley T. Drummon, 32, former naval officer of Bath, Me., who had picked up the former Mar- low. Okla., youth as a hitchhik- er. Drummond was to California to he best man at o brother's wedding. The state charged Drummond was stabbed when he grabbed for a knife which Murray drew to force him to continue driving instead of stopping here for the night. The defense pleaded that Murray had been subject to spells since a childhood head in- jury and at those times f.elt a compulsion to walk or travel. Murray was arrested at Phoe- rux a week after the slaying as he went to Ret Drummond's car Brett Will Speak Here Saturday In Demo Campaigning John Brett, who is Democratic nominee for judge of the crim- inal court of appeals and whose father was one of Oklahoma's pioneer lawyers and jurists, will speak in Ada Saturday at p.m. on the county courthouse lawn.

This forecast by a high offi- cial in ,close touch with the sit- uation came: asXMr. Truman car- ried to his cabinet again the politically, .potent question of how, meat'back on the na- tion's dinner tables. For the third consecutive .Fri-' meat was top. sub- the regular 'weekly cab- inet.: session.. This time the president could conference of key government .officials in which he sat, in .personally in 'order to size up.-what could or should be done about the, lack "of 'Steaks and chops. Meets With Key Officials The hour and three-quarter session' was held late: yesterday at-: the Whiter-House. 'There Mr. Truman met. with Democratic National Chairman Robert; K. Hannegan, Reconversion Director John Ri Attorney Gen- .eral Tom Clark, OPA Adminis- trator Paulj Porter, a top aide' of Secretary of Agriculture Ander- son, and other officials. It was the fourth such meet- ing in'a week, but the first Mr. Truman had attended. The president listened careful- ly to all suggestions as to how to get .livestock moving to mar- ket again, but made no-contribu- tion. White. House Press Secretary Charles G. Ross said no decision was reached, one high govern- ment official said, he expects there will be one "very although- not before tomorrow. Some presidential advisers, the official said, have been urging Mr. Truman to go on the radio when the decision is made so the people .will know the administra- tion's -position. Ceilings the possibility of removing price ceilings on ineat as a solution moved to the fore again. Mr. Truman pushed this course into the spotlight at his news conference yesterday by declin- ing to comment on a question still favors keeping ceil- ings on, meat. Two-weeks ago the chief exec- utive said '.unequivocally: that he was opposed to scrapping con- trols. Whether ceilings should be re- moved has been given serious consideration at the White House conferences, although some of the conferees reportedly have insisted that the price lid should stay on. The way is open for immediate decontrol should the decision go that way. The beef packing in- dustry yesterday .filed formal petition for elimination of ceil- ings, and Anderson's approval is all that would be required. The secretary has promised "prompt action" on the petition. However, in a speech at Gene- va, N. Y., last night "the declared the issue is not "beef before elec- tion." "We are in this for the long he said, "and 'the action of the department 'of agriculture must be taken in the knowledge that we are- still living in an up- set world." At his news conference, Mr. Truman had no comment when a reporter asked whether he be- lieves, that public dissatisfaction over the meat shortage, is like- ly to be reflected in the Novem- ber elections.

House of Commons laid aside lawmaking today to express its admiration for Franklin Delano Roosevelt, whom Winston Churchill, -ranked above Wash- ington and Lincoln. Led by Prime Minister Attlce and Opposition Leader Churchill, ajl political parlies joined in ap- proving a bill to erect a Roose- velt memorial in Grosvenor Square., site of the U. S. embassy and center of American planning tor 'European liberation. Attlee described the late prcs- derit as one who "combined the qualities of the fearless idealist with those; of the' far-seeing and prudent man of affairs." "His practical appreciation of what was possible never ham- pered the breadth of vision of what was the prime minister said. "He stood emphatically for the common men and women." The memorial plan was spon- sored by the American Pilgrims Society in .London. Its cost is to be raised by sub- scriptions. Churchill, Britain's wartime leader, said "I felt enjoyed in the ordeal of the war by walking hand in hand with this great out- standing chief of the American people." Churchill termed Roosevelt the greatest champion of free- dom" and said he "not only anti- cipated history but also its course and altered it in a manner that saved the freedom and earned the gratitude of the human race 'for tfoncrntionH to come." Relies on UN Safeguards Greek Premier Utterly At- Milt Treaty Draft With Bulgaria as Unfair By MEL MOST PARIS, Oct. 11 United States told the peace conference today it was ready to join in 'any United Nations defense of Greece "if Greece's security is endan- gered by the acts of an. aggressor nation." The U. S. ambassador to France, Jefferson Caffery, speaking on the peace treaty with Bulgaria, said the United States had con- sented to leave .Bulgaria her present frontier with Greece only because Americans relied upon United Nations safeguards to pro- tect Greece from any attack. "The United States delegation can give full assurance that the United States can be counted upon to act" in accordance with such measures, Caffery told the delegates. Greek Speaker Bitter Greek Premier Constantin Tsal- daris, said bitterly in an earlier address that the terms of the treaty draft with Bulgaria would permit that nation to emerge from her second war against the Allied nations larger and stronger than ever before. He accused the western powers fate we did not hesitate to share in the most critical hours of the yielding to Soviet pressure on border issues and charged them with lack of grati- tude for the role his country played in the war. Under the terms of the treaty, Tsaldaris declared, the Axis al- liance: entered into, by the laU King Boris and former Bulgarian premier Bogdan Philov in 1M1 "will have been justified." Replies to Pole The Greek premier took the floor to requesting strip of Bulgarian territory demand from Polish delegate Ste- phen Wierblowski that Bulgaria be given an outlet to the Aegean sea through Greece. The renewed demand was pre- sented at the outset of plenary session discussion on the Bulgar- ian treaty, the third to come be- fore the conference whole. The Hal inn treaty was approved yesterday and the Romanian pact early this morning. "Bulgaria needs an outlet on the Aegean Wierblowski de- clared in a speech protesting a commission recommendation to defortify Bulgaria's side of the frontier with Greece and another requiring Bulgaria to pay each in to Greece and Yugoslavia. The Greek premier immediate- ly answered the Polish speaker, urging that Greece be eivcn a strip of border territory to secure Thrace against possible invasion. Wierblowski said Poles "sym-- pathizc with Bulgaria becatue we are a Slav state." but he denied the existence of an "imaginary Slav bloc." "There are he declared, "who do not like these popular democratic republics, one of which was established in Bul- garia.
