Truman Gets to Eat Turkey Dinner With His Mother Sunday By ERNEST B.

No prior 'announcement was made of Mr. Truman's intentions to fly home.

GEIGER TON, NOV. Hundreds of thousands of cut diamonds probably the great- est 'assortnTe'nf'ever' 'assembled" in' modern times is in the hoard which American occupation forces uncovered in Japan. Government officials said today the Japanese government collect- ed the huge treasure from the Japanese people as a desperate war financing measure. Appar- ently the intention was to sell the gems for foreign exchange and purchase munitions and raw ma- ;erials. A War Department announce- ment said the gems are valued at between and But gem experts with cnowledge of the hoard said the army undoubtedly was speaking conservatively and of the New Yo.lc wholesale price. In settings and in the possession of indivi- duals, they said, the value would ae far greater.

"This undoubtedly is a situation unique in history. I know of no other time when vir- tually every diamond owned by every individual in a nation was assembled at one place." The gems now are in vaults of the Bank of Japan in Toklo. They wore found buried and hidden in r.-.any places of the Japanese em- pire. The gems came into possession of the Japanese army when the government appealed to the peo- ple to turn them in. When the Japanese surrendered, the hoard became widely distributed. Telling how the diamonds were found, officials here said one .box was located in Tokyo after a Japanese reported to Americans he knew of a place "where dia- monds are scattered all over." Found "Gallons of Diamonds" American army intelligence then uncovered other hiding places which yielded gallons of diamonds, often in flimsy con- tainers such as shoe boxes. The g -z 'were "in a confused condi- tion. Dirty and mixed with worth- less the army announce- r-.ent said. Henderson and Dr. William H. F' :hag, curator of minerals at the Smithsonian, were called to Tokyo to classify and appraise the "collection." "If they had been piled in one heap, on a desk, I don't suppose you could have stretched your arms around the bottom of the Henderson said. There were so ,many that it took Henderson and Dr. Foshag, working with four Japanese, five sclid months to count and classify them. No famous individual diamonds turned up, and apparently none from the Japanese crown jewels. The three heaviest weighed a to- tal of 100 cnrats, This compares with 106 carats for the famed Kohinoor diamond of the British crown' jewels. Japanese have told the Ameri- cans the diamonds all were from Japanese; none from the victims of war.

Such machinery could be made applicable to future coal work stoppages if not the present walk- out, Fulbright told a reporter. He said it might be applied also to enterprises such as oil, steel, transportation and public utili- ties. His idea. Fulbright explained would be to ban strikes altogeth- er in- these industries and force arbitration of disputes either set up-on- the pattern :of the interstate com- merce commission or through a special court, or both. He added that the government might have to exorcise regula- tory powers over the industries, just as it now does over some utilities, and might have lo con- trol prices of the industries' pro- ducts in order to adjust wage disputes equitably. The Arkansas senator's sugges- tion came while legislative lead- ers of both parties waited to see whether President Truman in- tends to call' them into confer- ence about possible ways and means of ending the coal walk- out. There have been indica- tions the president is thinking of such a move if developments point to a prolonged mine shut- down. While he said he could think of no legislative solution to the present dispute between John L.
