Ave rare Net October Paid Circulation 8601  Member: Audit Bureau of Circulation  THE ADA EVENING NEWS  FINAL EDITION  Soviet Troops in Large-Scale Redeployment Moves Within Occupation Zone of Germany  Americans Believe ’ "  They're Moving Some Back lo Russia  By RICHARD KASISCHKE  BEHLIN, Nov. 29,    —Official  American and informed German sources here said today that Soviet troops are engaged in large-scale redeployment movements in the Russian occupation zone of Germany.  Maj. Gen. Frank A. Keating, acting American deputy military governor, said Marshal Vassily D. Sokolovsky, Russian commander in chief in Germany, had informed American commonders the troop movements were of such a scale as to utilize most of the Soviet zone’s transport facilities.  There was no authoritative information available on the number of Russian troops involved in the movement.  ‘ We believe that the Russians are moving some of their troops back to Russia as Marshal Sokolovsky informed Gen. Joseph T. McNarney,” Keating said.  McNarney told reporters at a recent press conference that Sokolovskv had informed him the troop movement would continue for some weeks and that because of demands upon transport, it would be impossible for the Russians to admit any American correspondents for a tour of their zone until the New Year.  A German correspondent recently returned from Thuringia, said the Soviet troop movement there was ‘’something terrific.” “However” he added, “the Russians haven’t announced any-imng officially so nobody knows just what the new dispotitions will be ”  There was no authoritative information here on whether Russian redeployment or dcmoboli-ration of any considerable extent was occurring in territories east of Germany.  However, some Russian-controlled newspapers here today ran on their front pages a Soviet agency dispatch from Belgrade, reporting that Premier Marshal Tito had ordered a sizable demobilization of Yugoslav forces.  An American intelligence officer said that “despite all sorts of rumors and reports” from unofficial sources there has not yet been anv visible evidence of reduction of the Soviet forces in Berlin.  Traffic Accidents Cost Dozens Of Lives on Thursday  By Th# Associated Press  Traffic accidents cost the lives of at least 63 persons—more than the toll estimated by the national safety council—as the nation observed the Thanksgiving holiday yesterday. Violent deaths from miscellaneous causes totaled 13.  The safety council, which reported 3,120 traffic fatalities in October and a total of 27,520 for the first IO months qt 1946, had estimated 50 persons would die in motor mishaps on the holiday. It said, however, that normally 110 persons are killed in traffic on a November Thursday, including deaths occuring later from injuries suffered that day.  California, Illinois and Michi-ban each reported five traffic deaths yesterday while four fatalities each were reported in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, New York and Ohio; three each in Indiana and Pennsyvlania; two each in Colorado, Connecticut, Missouri and North Carolina, and Ako if cn pad'pu    .    I    ptie each in Iowa, Mlaine, Mary-  .v,    ““  Thl ;  u "' i a pd, Massachusetts, Minnesota,  ' J?

Y., Nov.  29—(ZP)—Kuzma V. Kiselev, foreign minister of White Russia,! told the United Nations today there now is a warning of a third world war with “atomic factories working at full power” and added:  “The monopolistic possession of the atom bomb cannot last forever.”  He was joined in the Russian effort to scrap the atom bomb by Andrei ’ r ishinsky, deputy foreign minister of the Soviet Union, who  said:  “The atom bomb is a sword of Damocles suspended by a thin thread. Only by removing such a menace can we establish security.”  Vishinsky added that the U.N. must guard against failure to generally disarm in all countries and on all weapons “starting with the most dangerous.”  “Why not prohibit the manufacture of the atom bomb if you don’t plan to use it?” Vishinsky declared, stressing that point as the principal Soviet objection to the American atomic energy plan.   c J C ,L he " turned to . the veto  and ~ —    «.«»    oui    u may  said that foreign minister V. M. be next week before it is brought Molotov had clearly stated that “ *  4 5 1     *    ‘  any control system would operate within the framework of the security council and thus be subject to the big power veto.  Strongly supporting the Soviet Union s arms reduction proposal with its attendant agreement to international inspections, Kiselev emphasized the failure to reach agreement between United States and Russian plans over control of the atom bomb.  Kiselev took the floor after Sen Tom Connelly (D-Tex), demanded that the U.N. take action on an arms reduction plan at the current session of the general assembly and cautioned against any move to sidetrack the atomic energy commission.

By .WES GALLAGHER  BERLIN, Nov. 29, (ZP) A  spokesman of the German central administration of the Russian occupation zone said today the Soviet zone of Germany was being split into five states with separate provincial governments for each.  The policy of splitting the Russian zone into states, each with a government, represents a sharp change in Soviet policy for Germany and was interpreted in some quarters as indicating Moscow has swung over to the western view Germany should have a government on “federal-state” lines instead of a strong central administration.  Until now the Russians have strongly opposed the view put forth by Secretary of State Byrnes that the future German government should be along federal lines, with powers divided among the states on one hand and a central machinery on the other.  'Th® official spokesman said the fact of the establishment of the five states “would have to speak for itself.”  If the Russian switch is fully carried out it would tend to solve one of the most difficult of the German questions. The French, British and Americans have all been opposed to a strong central German regime.  Indications of the new policy came to light in a speech and press conferences by Jacob Kaiser, Christian social democrat leader in Berlin and the Russian zone, during a tour of Bavaria this week.  Kaiser said he had information that the Russian occupation authorities planned to divide their zone into Saxony, Thuringia. Mecklenburg (including the part of Pomeranian not annexed by Poland) and two states in what was formerly Prussia.  This reversal in policy was a1-* so evidently borne out in a letter published in the Russian zone press from Marshal Vassily Sokolovsky, Soviet military governor, officially approving the recent decision of Saxony officials to form a provincial government with a premier and state secretaries. The letter said “I congratulate you on the formation of a provincial government.”  out in a trial which may extend for days, or even weeks.  Repercussions were widespread as the strike went into its seventh day:  More than 70,000 workers in coal-burning industries already were idle and jobs of additional ahoy sands were jeopardized as coal stocks shrank.  Steel Cutting Back The steel industry reported 45 of its 227 blast furnaces banked and future cutbacks were scheduled.  Railroads began furloughing  men.  Some schools and colleges extended the Thanksgiving recess to conserve coal.  Agriculture department officials said a prolonged coal strike, crippling transportation and food processing plants, would endanger the food supplies, particularly for big cities.  In the 48 hours before opening of the trial, rumors were rife of behmd-t h e-scenes maneuvers looking toward an agreement between Lewis and the mine owners which would end the strike and return the mines from government to private operation There was nothing tangible to support these rumors and some of those named in the rumor mill as principals in the maneuvers denied they knew anything about them.  Men close to President Truman said they had no hand in any such negotiations. They said that for the present the government’s only action is pressing the case against Lewis.  «J?

Riot in Muskogee After Negro Game Has One Fatality  .—MUSKOGEE, Okla., Nov. 29.— (ZP)-—Muskogee authorities cancelled a negro dance and ordered all beer taverns in the city closed last night as a precaution against disturbances after a football game fight in which one negro was killed, two others were injured and two white policemen hurt.

All three were Tulsa negroes  The fight began during a football game between two negro high schools, Davis said, and Policeman Bill Swanson and Carol Huggins, white officers, wer.* hurt slightly in attempting to quell the disturbance, and retreated.  Two negro officers whom Davis identified as Mack Cobb and O. C. Patterson of Taft, Okla., came to their assistance, and told the police chief they each fired once. Patterson told Davis he fired his gun into the air.  Several hundred white persons attended the game, but none were involved in the fight, Davis said.

Bill Holt’s service station. Tenth and Constant, reported  Trial Opens later in Day  Judge Upholds Court'! Right to Enjoin Walkout In Soft Cool Mines  WASHINGTON, Nov. 29 —  —John L. Lewis today entered a formal plea of “not' guilty” as Federal Judge T. Alan Goldsbor-ough resumed the contempt of court action against him.  The United Mine Workers* president also waived any right to an advisory jury, leaving the district court judge sole arbiter of the case.  In ordering Lewis to trial for disobeying a court order not to cancel his soft coal contract with the government, Goldsborough upheld the court's right to issue such an order despite federal an-ti-injunrtion laws.  Col lesson First Witness The government immediatelv p resen ted Navy t’apt. Norman H. Collisson, federal coal mines administrator, as first witness against the leader of 400.000 striking miners.  One of Lewis* lawyer* immediately objected to Collision's testimony on the ground that the whole proceeding was illegal.  Overruling Lewis* motion for dismissal of the contempt action brought by the government, Goldsborough declared:  “The Noms La Guardi* art did not and does not apply and the court has  # the same rights as it had prior to passage of the Norris-La Guardia Aet.”  Good Of Public Involved Goldsborough said his court had the right to enjoin “a labor union which was about to do something against the good of the public and the union itself ”  Lewis and hts United Mine Workers contended that the Norris-La Guardta Aet, curbing the use of restraining orders and injunctions in labor disputes, nullified Goldsborough s restraining for dismissal of the whole ennobler of Nov. 18 and was grounds tempt of court action, saying Lewis had the right to ignore it.
