The result was an International treaty formed in Geneva in' 1864 to relieve suffer- ing of war. It was not until 1881, however, that the American Red Cross was organized. After the last war the Red Cross went into civilian, of many kinds, going wherever an experienced agency was needed to relieve suffering humanity, Dr. Spencer explained'.

United States delegation disclosed today that it would approach Rus- sia directly in an effort to end the controversy over the big pow- er veto, which was sharpened in the United Nations assembly to- day by Generalissimo Stalin's statement defending the veto. The assembly delegate to So- viet Foreign Minister V. M.

HIGHTOWER NEW YORK, Oct. 29, Russian blast at the presence of United States troops in China a'nd British forces 'in Greece, the Middle East and Indonesia pointed the way today for a maj- or policy address by Soviet For- eign Minister Vyacheslav Molo- tov before the United Nations as- sembly. Molotov was slated to take the rostrum at the second of the day.'s -two sessions. Altogether representatives of 10 countries were due to be heard, including Syria, Ethiopia, Bolivia, the Phil- ippines and the Netherlands at the first session and Canada, Greece, Australia and Colombia at the second. There was some behind the scenes activity on selection of three nations to replace the Netherlands, Mexico and Egypt on the security council at the end of this 'year. Britain and the United States were reported to favor Belgium, Syria and Colom- bia, but the British were giving some consideration to India in- stead of Syria and no final de- cision had been 'reached. With Molotov and other rank- ing members of the Soviet dele- gation in the assembly auditor- ium at Flushing last night, Kise- lev made these charges against the United States and Britain: 1. By maintaining troops in China, and in Greece, the Mid- dle East and Indonesia they are breaking the United Nations charter. 2. 'In China the United States is not following a policy calcu- lated to maintaiin the peace of the F.ar East. 3. Britain is doing everything possible to maintain troops in the Middle East. 4. The presence of such troops in various- non-enemy countries will only lead to unrest among the peoples. The delegates were looking to Molotov, however, for the latest word on what Russia wants out of this assembly session as well as an airing, by the Russian side of the chief elements of conflict between the Soviet Union and the western powers.

Despite President Truman's flat dictum that there-will be no coal strike, Secretary of Interior J. A. Krug made it clear today that the government has not surrendered to John L. Lewis on his demand for a new coal contract. By implication, Lewis has threatened a walkout by his 000-soft coal miners on November days before the .elections. Hours after Mr. Truman signal- led that the strike throat was banished, a spokesman for Krug told a reporter late last night at Tahoe City, Calif., that Krug's ac- tion in arranging a conference be- tween Lewis and coal miners Ad- ministrator N. H. Cpllisson was "a compliance only with Mr. Lew- is' request for a meeting." Previously, Mr. Truman's no- strike announcement had been taken as indicating that the gov- ernment might be ready to talk new contract demanded by Lewis. In addition, there had been some speculation that the administration might already have worked out some formula satisfactory to Lewis. That was the broad interpreta- tion, at least, placed upon the union leader's sudden agreement yesterday to negotiate with the government under the terms of the old pact which went into ef- fect last May 29 after Krug seized the nation's strike-paralyzed soft coal mines. Until yesterday, Lewis had in- sisted bluntly that unless the gov- ernment agreed to negotiate a new with refer- ence to wages and cur- rent pact would be "void" on No- vember 1. Wheelchair Takes Him on Travels Nebraskon Now Planning To Roll to Florida. DALLAS, Oct. ley Engquist, 26, Fremont, Neb., who wouldn't let paralysis which confined him to a wheelchair conquer his wanderlust, plans now to roll on to Florida for the his wheel chair. He arrived hero over the week- end to visit a friend, Ford H. Cas- tro. _Engquist's wandering over highways in his wheelchair began in Dallas three and a half years ago when he decided to visit a sister in Fremont. Since then he has traveled thousands of .miles. He said friendly truck drivers usually pick him up, but on one trip he had to wheel himself 800 miles. His major trouble he said, is finding a place to sleep at night. Often lie sleeps in his wheelchair. Also, he carries two span- the win-time synthetics, he says, do not "hold up well. He admits, however, that wheelchair tires probably weren't build for high- way travel. More than 23 billion people rode on the trolley couches, street cars, and gas buses of the nation last year, an increase of 75 per- cent above prewar levels. Says Russia Lacks A-Bomb Reports Reductions In Troops in Eastern Europe, Hopes for Peace Negotia- tions Success By EDDY GILMORE MOSCOA Oct. Minister Stalin declared in a statement made public today that the Soviet Union has no atomic bomb or anylhink like it. and urg- ed "rigid international control" of atomic energy. The Soviet leader, replying to 31 questions submitted to him by Hugh Baillie, president of the United Press, said Russia's troop stiength in the occupied countiies of Eastern Europe totalled 60 di- visions, and would be reduced within two to 40. Stalin expressed opinions on broad range of subjects, covering almost jvery paramount interna- tional issue.' His replies were broadcast this morning over the Moscow radio. Asked what should be done if the threat of a new war should arise, the Russian leader said its "instigators" should be curbed, and he arcused Winston Churchill Britain's war-time prime minister of being among such instigators. He said, however. Hint he did not agree with U. S. Secretary of State Byrnes that tension was in- creasing between the United States and Russia. This statement was regarded here as n solid con- tribution to better relations be- tween the two powers. In response to 31 questions sub- mitted to him by Hugh Baillic, president of the United Press As- soeiati. ps, Stalin accused Winston Churchill o! being among the "in- stigators of a new and dis- agreed flatly with Secretary of State James F. Byrnes that there is growing tension between Russia and the United States. Indifferent to Warships In responses to other questions as broadcast by the Moscow radio, Stalin declared: 1. The government of the U.S.S. R. is "indifferent" to the presence of American warshipsin the Med- iterranean. 2. He does not feel the veto power has been used to excess either in the U. N. Security Coun- cil or in the foreign ministers' council. 3. Russia rogards the western borders of Poland as permanent. 4. Russia feels that "Yugoslavia has grounds to be dissatisfied" with the peace treaty drafted for Italy at the Paris conference. 5. The U.S.S.R. regards "as un- necessary" the presence of British troops in Greece. 6. He believes that "not only the economic, but also the political unity of Germany is to be de- sired." The responses to Mr. Baillie's questions constituted ths second such interview Stalin has granted in a period of slightly more than a month. On Sept. 24, In answer to questions submitted by Alex- ander Worth of the Sunday Times of London, he said he could see no danger of u new war. Churchill Lends War Instigators In today's answers, he said he felt "the instigators of a new war. in the first place Churchill and others of like mind in Britain and the U. S. constituted "the worst threat to world pence" now. "If such a threat should Baillic asked, "what would be the best steps to be taken by the na- tions of the world to avoid a new "The inlKigalors of a new said Stalin, "arc to be exposed and curbed." His declaration that Russian troops in Eastern Europe num- bered GO divisions constituted an answer to Churchill's suggestion in the form of a question before the house of commons last week, that the Soviet Union had 200 di- visions there, on full war strength.
