Nov. 2D, American and informed German sources here said today that Soviet troops are engaged in large-scale redeployment move- ments in the Russian occupation zone of Germany. Maj. Gen. Frank A. Keating acting American deputy militar governor, said Marshal Vassil. D. Sokolovsky, Russian comman per in chief in Germany, ha informed American commondor the troop movements were o suc.n a scale as to utilize mos of the Soviet zone's transpoi facilities. There was no authoritative in formation available on the num her of Russian troops involve in the movement. "We" believe that the Russian are moving some of their troop back to Russia as Marshal Soko lovsky informed Gen. Joseph 1 McNarney." Keating said. McNarney told reporters at n recent press conference tha Sokolovsky had informed him the trooo movement would con for some weeks and tha because of demands upon trans port, it would be impossible foi the Russians to admit any Amer- ican correspondents for a tour their zone until the New Tear. A German correspondent re- cently returned from Thuringia said the Soviet troop movement there was "something terrific1." "However." he added, "the Russians haven't announced any- thing officially so nobody knows just what the new dispolitionf will be." There was no authoritative In- formation hiTf on whether Run- Man redeployment or riornoboli- ?ation of any considerable ex- tent was occurring in territories east of Germany. However, some Russian-con- trolled newspapers here today ran on their front pages a Soviet agency dispatch from Belgrade, reporting that Premier Marshal Tito had ordered a sizable de- mobilization of Yugoslav forces. An American intelligence of- ficer said that "despite all sorts of rumors and reports" from un- official sources there has not yet been anv visible evidence of re- duction of the Soviet forces in Berlin.

Oklahoma Drilling Marks Up 43 Wells TULSA, Okla., Nov. Oklahoma drilling operators com- pleted work this week on 43 pro- ducing oil wells that flowed an initial crude output of bar- rels daily, but 41 other wells when finished proved dry. Five new gas wells in the state also were recorded for an initial production of cubic feet daily. Drilling activities still main- tained their brisk pace of the past few months despite bad weather conditions early in the week and the coal stoppage which may ev- entually curtail drilling for lack of steel pipe. Cotton county kept its place as Oklahoma's current drilling king- pin, with Carter, Lin- coln, Scminole and Oklahoma counties also active oil areas. The week's top well, finally re- ported as a completion by oil ob- servers, was the Carter Oil Com- pany's No. 1 McAlester, a 1280- barrel a day deep producer in SE SE SE of 8-7n-3w of McClain county.

Russian Zone May Be Divided Into Five Separate States Would Tend to Solve Argument Over Strong Cen- tral German Setup By .WES GALLAGHER BERLIN, Nov. 29, spokesman of the German cen- tral administration of the Rus- sian 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 Rus- sian zone into with a government, represents a sharp change in Soviet policy for Ger- many and was interpreted in some quarters as indicating Mos- cow 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 Byr- nes that the future German gov- ernment should be along federal lines, with powers divided among the statas on one hand and a central machinery on the other. The official spokesman said the fact of the establishment of the five states "would have to speak for itself." a 90-day coal "catastrophic" States. As trial day arrived for the bulky, miners' leader, an official acquainted with the government's preparations said a corps.of eco- nomists had compiled data on the ominous probably impact of the strike on post war recovery. The "catastrophic" prediction was in this material, but it may ac next week before it is brought out in a trial which may extend for days, or even weeks. Repercussions were widespread as the strike went into its sev- enth day: More than workers in coal-burning industries already were idle and jobs of additional were jeopardized as coal stocks shrank. Steel Cutting: Back The steel industry reported 45 of its 227 blast furnaces banked and future cutbacks were sche- duled. Railroads began furloughing men.

Agriculture department offi- cials said a'prolonged-coal'strike, crippling transportation and food processing plants, would endan- ger the food supplies, particularly for big cities. In the 4B hours before opening of the trial, rumors were rife of behind-t h e-scenes maneuvers looking toward an agreement be- tween Lewis and" the mine own- ers which would end the strike and return the mines from gov- ernment 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 ARABS PREPARE for trouble: Until recently split into 1wo ri- val factions, the Najada and Futuwa, Palestine's "illegal" Arab army is combining under the absentee leadership of Haj Aminuel Husseini, former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.

A final compromise on the issue between Russia and the western powers over free navi- gation or. I In; Danube river seem- ed to be almost in hand. A committee of deputies was assigned to summarize the rela- tively few open questions re- maining in the Italian peace treaty. Among these unsettled points the dispute over repara- tions ranked first. It was given priority for today's Big Four ses- sion (3 p.m. C. S. TO. The issue is difficult because it involved the old contest between Russia and Britain for position in southeast- ern Europe.

Trial Opens Later in Day Judge Upholds Court's Right to Enjoin Walkout In Soft Coal Mines WASHINGTON, Nov. 29 (IP) 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' pres- ident also waived any right to an advisory jury, leaving the dis- trict 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- laws. Colll.sson First Witness The government immediately presented Navy Capt. Norman H. Collisson, federal coal mines ad- ministrator, as first witness against the leader of strik- ing minors. One of Lewis' lawyers imme- diately objected to Cnllisson's testimony on the ground that the whole proceeding was illegal. Overruling Lewis' motion for dismissal nf the contempt action brought by the government, Goldsborough declared: "The Norris-La Guardiri net did not and dues not apply nnd thrr court has ,lhe same rights ax it had prior to passage of the Nor- ris-La Gum-din Act." 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 md the union itself." Lewis anil his United Mine Workers contended that the Nor- Guardia Act, curbing the use of restraining orders and in- junctions in labor disputes, nul- ificd Goklsborough's restraining for dismissal nf the whole eon- order of Nov. ]li nnd was grounds tempt of court notion, saying Le- wis hnd the right to ignore it. Government attorneys on the other hand contended the law did not apply where the government itself was acting as operator of the soft coal mines seized during another crippling strike last spring. Cuts Arguments Short Goldsbnrnugli's ruling cut short ti diiy and a half of argument by attorneys for Lewis that the court lacked authority to restrain the UMW from terminating its gov- ernment contract. This notice by Lewis was followed by a walkout of miners. "The court Goldsbor- ough said, "that this proceeding was for the sole purpose of main- taining the status quo in this dis- pute." Before handing down his decis- ion, the judge had remarked that Lewis in effect had "pleaded guil- ty" to contempt by refusing to obey the court's order to keep the coal contract in force. This was promptly challenged ay one of Lewis' lawyers, T. C. Townscnd, who said: "He hasn't entered any plea of [uiity, your honor." After some argument over legal technicalities, Iho judge ruled: "The motion to discharge and vacate the motion is overruled." He then called a five minute re- cess. Chief government counsel John F. Sonnetl announced that lie government was ready to pre- sent its first witness against Le- yis Navy Captain N. H. Col- isson, federal coal mines admin- istrator.
