T. Hansen, new city manager, met with the group and discussed several major problems  with them, Tuesday morning he started to work on a number of  reins including the repairing of the svt itch board at the city pump  station.  Hansen says that the switch  board needs repair in the worst way and that work started on the repairing job early Tuesday  morning,  Beard Only Partially Repaired  The switch board was practically destroyed about two years ago and was partially repaired soon after it was struck by lightning The remainder of the re-pai: mg could not be done at that particular time because materials were not available.  Necessary materials for the repair of the switch board have been in the hands of the city for several months, but the job has not been done.  Hansen said that water will probably run low tonight (Tues-cay from JO to 12 p m. at which t.me all pumps will be stopped and replacement parts installed on toe board, •  He said that the two hours just before midnight is the safest time to make repairs because it is at that tune that the least water is used.  The job is being done by con-tract because there are no city employees capable of handling the high tension wires that will have to be handled to make the necessary repair, If the job is completed successfully, the switch box should be as good as new.  Studying Cemetery, Too  Manager Hansen is personally making a study of Rosedale cemetery He is studying particularly the laying out of the unused por-ti n and the possibilities of perpetual care.  It will probably take 60 aa vs to complete even a preliminary*survey. but when the survey is completed the new city manager will made recommendations to the city council.  The cemetery program is expected to operate on a long-range basis, but the first plan is to * aminate the cause of the cemetery from going into the ‘red* to the extent 50 per cent of the annual appropriations.  Hansen pointed out that the cemetery should at least pay its way: by making a step in the direction the job can be done easily but not without an abundance of work.  He expects to design an underground sprinkling system which will make possible the leduction  f *f **p« rational overhead to a minimum  in the future, Hansen hopes to have a cemetery that will be a  credit to the community at a n min.urn «>f cost.

BELGRAPE, Yugoslavia, Oct. ~7 A special three-man UNRRA investigation committee reported today it had found “no evidence of diversion” of large quantities of the world relief or-ganziations supplies for the use of Premier Marshal Tito’s Yugoslav army.  The commission, reporting on a 10-day survey of the UNRRA situation in Yugoslavia, said in a formal statement to the press that. “in general, the agreement between the Yugoslav government and UNRRA has been earned out satisfactorily.”  commission, appointed by UNRRA Director-General F. H. La Guardia, criticized some aspects of the program, ‘particularly relating to delays in receipt of information and difficulties at some stages in observation by the administration’s observers.” Effectively Distributed However, the report said the investigators could report “unre-  o e L ve(lly that the  great bulk of 2,000.000 tons of UNRRA supplies sent to Yugoslavia have been effectively distributed among the people of the country.”  The investigators said they were satisfied that the weak-ne»sc»s they found in the program result largely from administrative difficulties inherent in speedy establishment of adequate government machinery in all areas which have .suffered from enemy occupation and have had war waged on their territories.” “The commission will report that the Yugoslav government has wen ready and whiling to acknowledge such defects and has effectively demonstrated its dossile and U'lllingncss to cooperate fully with the administration rn carrying out its responsibilities in Yugoslavia ” the report said.  Nothing Specific Found from time to time,” the statement added, “UNRRA regional directors reported vehicles thought to have been of UNRRA origin had been seen in military use. Such r e p o r t H had been brought to the notice of the gov-oi nment as they arose and explanations were requested. There have been admitted delays in the required information being received, but the ground for spe-afic allegations has not been established.”  The instances referred to, the statement said, involved less than 200 vehicles of a total of more than 12,000 delivered for relief purposes. The statement noted thai many thousands of vehicles of similar type previously had been supplied to the Yugoslav army by lend-lease and through transfer from allied armies.  The supplies in general “undoubtedly have saved millions of lives, the statement said.  By Thomas A. Reedy and G.  K.

If there is unrest, it can grow into disorder, and if there is disorder among the Germans, it can spread to displaced persons and have an effect even among our own soldiers.”  Reliable intelligence sources drew this picture of subversive movements:  Fugitive SS Men Worst  Veterans’ organizations, led by fugitive SS (Elite Guard) men, are the \ggest possible danger. Escaped SS and Wehrmacht men are agitating against the occupation and helping others to flee prison camps.  Sabotage, armed resistance and efforts to sway mob opinion are giving way to long-range plans for phony “social” organizations to influence the ideological beliefs of the masses.  The intelligence men said current illegal activities weren’t much more than idle threats against de-Nazification board members, Germans working for us ar\d leaders of the new democratic parties.”  — 111     ............'-'|i—.— ---------------  Dui ing the war U.

By JOSEPH DYNAM  PARIS, Oct. 15 (ZP)—'The Paris Peace conference ended officially at 5:28 p.m. (11:28 a.m. EST) today after Yugoslavia, in a last minute dramatization of her dissatisfaction with its decisions, formally withdrew from the 21-nation deliberations.  With a rap of his gavel, Presi-dent-Foregin Minister George Bi-dault of France declared the conference closed, after a brief address in which he reviewed the work accomplished by the delegates since they convened July 29 to write treaties with Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Finland.  Yugoslavia’s protest against what she termed “unjust decisions” of the conference majority drew a prompt rebuke from U. S. Secretary of State Byrnes.  Byrnes Spanks Yugoslavia  “Just as no one nation had the power to win the war,” Byrnes said, “so no one nation has the right to dictate the peace.” Deputy Premier Edvard Kardelj of Yugoslavia, in announcing the Yugolav decision to withdraw, challenged the decisions of the 21-nation coherence on the Italian treaty. He said the solution should be met by “mutual agreement” and implied that if Yugoslavia’s desires were not achieved his country would nqit sign the treaty.  Byrnes, taking the floor after the Yugoslav withdrawal was announced, said the United States would support in the four-power foreign ministers council every decision backed by two-thirds of the peace conference.  U. S. To Stay By Conference The secretary said the American delegation would do so regardless of how it voted itself, and would give “sympathetic consideration” to every other conference decision.  The delegates approved the plenary session reports on all five treaties—for Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Finland — within a half-hour after the meeting convened.  The Yugoslav delegation, winch had contended strongly but without success for the Italian port of Trieste, addressed a letter to the conference chairman. Quo Tai-Chi of China, announcing Yugoslavia would not participate in the final approval of the conference decisions and would not associate herself with the recommendations.  • . 0nl , v , yesterday. Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov of Russia de-nounced some of the conference’s decisions as “unsatisfactory.” suggesting that questions such as Triete, free navigation of the Danube and the Bulgai ian-Greek border would be reopened when the foreign miniters council meets in New York Nov.  4 to drat tthe final terms for Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Finland!*  “Unjust,” He Says Deputy Premier Edvard Kar-dHj of Yugoslavia, who wrote the letter, said the nation of Marshal Tito was withdrawing in protest against what he termed “unjust decisions” imposed upon Yugoslavia by asserted ruthlessness in "outvoting.”  Quo announced a few minutes after one session started that he had received a letter from the deputy premier of Yugoslavia saying that Balkan    country  “could not” participate in the session.  Seats of the Yugoslav delegation were conspicuously vacant on the otherwise crowded floor of the palace chamber.  Big Four Present Secretary of State    Bvfnes,  Molotov, British Foreign Secretary Bavin and French President-Foreign Minister    Georges  Bidault, the men w’ho will make the final decisions on the draft treaties voted by the conference, all were in their places.  Quo said the Yugoslav delegation wished to inform the chair-.    man and through him,    the cn-   30     tire conference, that it    was ab  senting itself deliberately. The chairman said the letter would be distributed to all delegates later in the day.  The Yugoslav “walkout” was an unexpected blow to what was to have been a simple ceremony closing the conference which started work ll weeks and two days ago. Only the approval of the conference record of votes and a message from the host, Bidault, were on the official agenda.  Kardelj said in his letter that the conference decisions on the draft treaty with Italy    “are of  such a nature that they render it impossible for the Yugoslav government to sign the peace treaty if the main provisions affecting the vital interests of Yugoslavia are not changed.” Present Drafts Not Final This. apparently was a reference to the fact that the treaties still are provisional and that the foreign minisers of the Big Four states are to draft the final texts at their New York meetings.  Truman Orders Decontrol For Meat, Government Is Moving Rapidly To Comply  Truman Decision on Meat Seen Only Remedy, Says As Leading to Swift Passing I President, For Of All Controls Except Rents Nation's Shortage  By ROGER D. GREENE  WASHINGTON. Out. 15 (ZP)— Top administration officials today forecast the swift passing of all government curbs over wages and prices- except rents—as a resuft of President Truman’s decision cutting meat free of OPA controls.  One high-placed official said an important precedent has now been set; the way is open for pressure from all sides to blow the lid off the controls that are left.  “There is no question this speeds the end of OPA and wag** regulation.” this official told a reporter privately.  Only Shell Remains  He added that a major factor in the president’s decision was the feeling that if the government did not act decisively, congress would return on January I rn a mood to kill the whole control setup anyway, rather than wait for it to die neat June 30.  “Today only a shell remains of what we had in the way of controls up to last night.” the official said, “and those controls, in turn, were little more than window'-  dfessing compared to what we had on June 30.”  It was on June 30 that the life of OPA officially expired, only to be revived in a milder form by congress on July 25.  Mr. Truman himself said the meat action could not be considered an “isolated transaction.* 9  “Meat is so important a pru t of our cost of living that removing price controls on it may have an effect on our economic structure generally, he added.

Dr. Kelly, back at his S a n Francisco home after six months as surgeon at the Nuernberg prison, gave his views in a story copyrighted by the San Francis co Chronicle today.  He described Rudolf Hess, who received a life prison sentence. as insane hut physically strong enough to live many years.  “He has relapsed into a state of mental deterioration with complete paranoid reactions,** said Dr. Kelley.
