the same time Russian for eign Minister Andrei Y Vishin sky by inviting the western for eign ministers to offer amend ments to his own proposals gave the first hope that a deadlock on Germany might be broken Work on Draft Experts of the western powers worked on the draft the allied proposals nearly all of Thursday night It was not completed and probably will not be until early next week It is expected that the western proposals will put too high a price on agreement to be accepted by Vishinsky But his statement Friday nay indicate it was be lieved that Russia is in a mood for compromise In their fifth session the foreign ministers met for three hours and 15 minutes in the Talleyrand rose marble paace The western ministers spent all day trying to smoke out Vishin sky on what is happening in the Soviet zone in Germany especial ly how much Russia has taken out of the country in reparations and what amount ot German industrial property she has seized Gave no Information Vishinsky gave none of the in formation requested But he did invite the western foreign ministers to offer amend ments to the proposals which he offered on Germany at the outset and which the western allies re jected Answering Vishinskys invita tion French Foreign Minister Rob ert Schuman said the western pow ers would make known their posi tion precisely and in writing This referred to the allied proposals

living in western Berlin struck a week ago at mid night to enforce a demand that they be paid in west marks four times as valuable as the Soviet east mark The Russiancontrolled mana gers in eastern Berlin proposed to pay the nonCommunist workers 60 of their wages in west marks Clear Russian Failure It is clear the Russians can not break our strike We will set tle only for 100 of our demands
