E. Hansen. city manager, is continuing his trip-hammer meth- od of getting things done and from the way he has started the same method will be followed until he has the city operating along the lines he wants. He has purchased some paint for marking of pedestrian lanes on downtown streets. The walk- ing zones will be marked olf with white paint. All lanes will be the same, which should lend to cut down ihe possibilities of accidents in business district, Hanson said. Center Line A center line similar to the ones seen on highways will be painted down the middle of Main street. After the lanes are marked off, motorists will be expected to stay on the right side of the lines while driving in downtown Aria. The paint that will be used is regulation traffic paint that meets specifications for the type ot work it will be used, comes several dollars cheaper than that that was used the liist time. Hanson said that the paint will last more than 40 length ot time the last paint stayed. Following up this painting job, the street markets will be re- painted. Hansen said that some of the markers looked as they had not been painted since they were placed at their respective places. Wooden Bridges (o Go Then, all of the wopden foot bridges that are now in use in Ada will be replaced in the near future by concrete bridges that will be arched to better serve the purpose.

BYRNES REPORTS ON PEACE CONFERENCE: Secretary of State James Byrnes discusses the Paris Peace Conference with President Truman at the White House, shortly after arriving back in Washington from Paris, (NEA Byrnes Report to Nation Will Point Up Diplomatic Conflict With Russia at Peace Meeting By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON. Oct. 18, Secretary of State Byrnes draft- ed a report to the American peo- ple today on the diplomatic con- flict between the United States and Russia. Top authorities suggested he would make.use of the occasion to lash back at criticism of his foreign policies by former-Sec- retary of Commerce Henry A. Wallace. Byrnes, who returned yester- day from the Paris peace con- ference .and received President Truman's congratulations on -a "most excellent was sche- duled to broadcast for 30 minutes beginning at 9 p. m. (CST) to- night. NBC and some MBS sta- tions arranged-v. to carry the- speech. In writing his address Byrnes was reported to have two princi- pal objectives in view: 1. To try to knock down Rus- sian charges that the capitalist world is seeking to encircle the Soviet Union. 2. To smash the Wallace im- plications that his policy-toward Russia is a policy of "toughness" and should be softened even at the risk of actions which, in Wallace's words, might be called appeasement. Those in a position to know says Byrnes will reaffirm his basic idea of American-Russian relations with a declaration that the United States intends to stand absolutely firm on its principles where major interests are involved and yet to deal pa- tiently with all difficult issues. The secretary's speech thus will be not so.much a report on the work of the' Paris conference as a discussion of the state of relations with the Soviet Union. Tomorrow night Senator Van- denberg 'intends to broadcast from Washington his reasons for believing.that on the whole the Paris meeting actually made some progress toward re- storing peace to Europe, Van- denberg and Senator Connally (D Tex) were advisors to Byrnes.

Charges German Directs All Communist Activity; Eisler Says It's Ridiculous NEW YORK, Oct. 18 Louis F. Budenz, former editor of The Daily Worker, communist paper, who renounced commun- ism to rejoin the Catholic church, Hamman as U. S. ambassador to Colorful civic and academic ceremonies which made Eisen- hower an honorary doctor of law at the University of Edinburg and at Cambridge and a freeman of the Scottish capital and of the ancient Burgh of Maybole, covet- ed distinctions though they are, anerely were the formal mani- festations of a regard expressed most significantly on the side- lines. Common People Like Him The measure of popular feel- ing was found in what people said to one another as they a- waited a glimpse of the general and in commenjt on the street, in the subways and buses and, of course, in the pubs.

Budenz declined to give further information about Berger, declar- ing he would be a .witness late next month in. Washington be- fore the .house committee on un- American 'activities, and that he would lay 'before the committee certain documents and references containing information about Berger. Told of Secret Figure In a speech Sunday at Detroit, Budenz told of the existence of a secret but dominent figure in American communist affairs but mentioned no name. Concerning the alleged.. No. 1 communist director, Budenz said then: "He never shows his face. He does not appear in official com- munist buildings. Few communist leaders here ever see him. They all, however, follow his orders or: suggestions implicitly. His name on an article is a sign that at is official. The average rank and file American communist how- ever, never hear of him." Eisler Replies The Daily Worker, in today's edition, published an. interview with Gerhard Eisler, quoting him as saying the charges were "too ridiculous to answer." The story in PM stated that "Eisler believes he was the intended victim of a carefully conceived plaai to nour- ish the growing anti-Soviet feel- ing in this country." The interview in the Daily Worker described Eisler as a "slight, scholarly, middle-aged joua-nalist" and said he and his, wife had been scheduled to sail for their native Leipzig today "with state department approval."

I Pay Controls Discussed j The secretary said that the sub- ject of pay controls themselves had come up, but declined to el- aborate. i In his radio address Monday night Mr. Truman said removal of wage controls will be speeded up as the scrapping of price ceil- ings is accelerated. Some labor and business lead- ers have demanded that the wage stabilization board be abolished, and the two industry members of the tri-partite panel have sub- mitted resignations Mr. Tru- man. A high official said that foods, services and many commodities will be taken out from under ceil- ings by then two months or more earlier than had been plan- ned before President Truman's meat decision. This official emphasized to a reporter that it will be "an order- ly retreat" from controls and will not result in "riot or chaos."

The milling industry formally requested Secretary of Agricul- ture Clinton.P. Anderson to lift controls from wheat flour, semo- lina and farina, declaring that wheat supplies are ample. Chicago flour circles voiced doubt, however, that flour ceil- ings would be scrapped imme- diately. Selling in wheat broke the prices of ba-ead cereal in a jittery Chicago market.
