Walla Walla Union-Bulletin (Newspaper) - March 16, 1946, Walla Walla, Washington The National Whirligig Behind the Netcs Bay Tucker By John Fisher Is Kremlin deliberately em- barking on an expansion program Diplomats do not yet know the answer. Many of those sympathetic, to Soviet union are puzzled oy the conflicting news about Manchuria and Iran and are disturbed by Mos cow's pressure on Turkey to give up Kars and Ardahan regions. Victorious Russia has plenty ol land and rich natural resources. Her brave and' tired people need the atmosphere of peace and a higher standard of living far mor; than new territorial gains. Why, unbiased statesmen ask, doei the Red government dissipate American good will for such small Of what value to the Rus- eian people would be a few bar- ren Armenian mountains if the tak- ing were to alarm free nations, in e said in a talk on 'world famine." (An agriculture department in- formation officer insisted Saturday night tint the dfcision on whether Hoover will go to Russia has not yet been finally made. He ac- knowledged, however, that Rus- sia is not on the itinerary as of the moment, but said Hoover still might go there if he were invited.) Hoover is scheduled to leave New York, Sunday for a flight to Paris to begin a check on. what President Truman has called the worst food crisis in modern times, is expected to be gone about five weeks.

Days after filing the return with assistant of the internal revenue collector's office, he came back to clinch the point. They had disagreed, he explain- ed, and separated in December. he was assured, "there isn't the slightest chance of a re- fund to your wife. "Since the separation was be- fore the end of the year, there can be no exemption for her. "You owe a little more than instead." Ul_ cou Inmate Death vaults valued at nas been offered 'J8 cents.

S. employment service. Approximately 450 persons in the area served cut of this office- are receiving unemployment compen- sation now, or less than-1 per cent of the population of some credited in this area, McLaughlin stated Saturday. A slight drop has been recorded in the list of unem- ployed in the past few weeks and the situation is expected to improve as seasonal farm work pickes up shortly. Permanent Jobs Desired However, McLaughlin emphasiz- ed a need for more permanent job listings than are now available, as this type ol opening is sfarcer now than a few months ago.

When he accepted President Truman's invitation to make a survey of food needs' of war-torn and famine-stricken countries, Hoover and government food offi- cials included Russia in his itin- erary. Russia, along with most of Europe, has asked for American as- sistance. But when it became known here this week that Russia had offered to supply France with tons government scratch- ports although an incompkle re- port came in Saturday from Haas in the farthermost northern reaches of the county. An additional from Waits- burg has brought the total for that city to and the solicitation in College Place is almost fin- ished. The campagin office advises that there are numerous contributions which always have come in during past drives that have not yet made their appearance. Results of the solicitation of employes in busi- nesses are slow in being reported. The return of postal cards from businesses stating when reports might be accepted has been most pleasing, Small said, adding that in several instances these were that the inspection .trip had been> intended to include" only those countries asking for and needing Ameriran food.

Marshall disclosed urgent measures are being taken jointly by American and Chinese' officers to extend into Manchuria a peace formula Pea Ceiling Price is An error in transmission on the Associated Press wire Friday night resulted in confusion in the item concerning the OPA having set new jtations of the creaty were a con- Soviet Paper Declares Iran Broke Treaty Country Charged With Granting Oil Concessions Held Ly Russia to U. S. And British Firms MOSCOE The Newspaper Izvestia declared Saturday that Northern Iran oil fields were of "primary significance" to Russian security, and charged that Iran four times broke the Soviet-Iranian treaty of 1921 by granting to United States and British firms oil con- cessions previously held by Rus- sia. The government newspaper ac- cused Iran of discriminating against Russia in oil concessions, of threat- ening Soviet securtiy, and of seek- ing to instigate conflicts between the Soviet union and othep great powers. The latter charge was made in another article in Izvestia Thursday. Met Resistance Izvestia asserted that when Rus- sia in 1944 proposed renewal of her former oil concessions in the north, the proposal met "raving resistance from the Iranian ruling upper crust. "It is not said Iz- vestia, "to forget about all these facts which have serious meaning in the development of relations be- tween the Soviet union and The 1921 treaty, it said, stipu- lated that Iran would not give con- cessions to foreign interests in Northern Iran, but that Iran had granted them to three American and one Dutch-British firm in this area adjacent to the Southern Sov- iet frontier and close to Russian- oil bases in Baku and Turkmen. These concessions, said Izvestte were threats to Russian security The newspaper said the vio- Bevin States Offer Serious LONDON Secretary ceiling prices for the 1946 dry pea crop. The transmission error when traced down was revealed to have occurred when the item was sent out of Washington, D.C. The OPA has fixed per 100 pounds as thp ceiling for U.S. No. 1 dry whole smooth peas which is 65 cents a hundred pounds less than the previous price. The U.S. No. 2 ceiling is while that for U.S. No. 3 and lower is a hundred These maximum prices, are F.-' O.B. country shipping point for sales by processors and dealers in sacks loaded on the car or truck.

Local figures in the trade point out the difference in the two quo- tations is that the lower set of cession to Standard Oil in Novem ber, 1921; to Sinclair Oil in De cember 1923; to Delaware Oil in January, 1937, and to the Anglo Dutch company, said to be a sub- sidiary of the Royal Dutch Shell, in March, 1939. All were cancelled later, but only after Soviet protests, it added. Grounds Said False Iran, it continued, granted the concessions on grounds she did no1 have the financial and industrial means for self-development. But this, it charged, was "only a maneuver" exposed by the Sov- iet proposal a year and a half ago for concessions. These, it said, would have given Iran great bene- fits and removed "one of the seri- ous obstacles in the way of im- proving Soviet-Iranian relations."

The general, here to report to President Truman of efforts as the chief executive's personal troubleshooter in the far east, call- ed the situation in Manchuria critical state of affairs." "No Man's" Land While Marshall discussed reasons for the Manchurian crisis guarded- ly, he told a questioner he did not know whether Eussian forces, which recently withdrew from Mukden, are evacuating all Man- churia. Along with this uncertainty he pictured the vast, rich region almost as a political no-man's land, in which as the Russians do pull back, Communist factions until otherwise ordered tend to contest the agreed right of central govern- ment forces to take over and run the territory. This, he said, al- ready has caused a series of minor clashes. Throughout a long news con. ference, however, the military- leader-turned-diplomat took a of general optimism conditioned by two requirements which he aaid were elementary: That the United States give assistance to the Chi- nese and that other nations not scheme deliberately against rein- corporation of the rich Manchurian territory into a unified, peaceful China. He laid heavy on tht operations cf "unity" teami of American, Nationalist and Com. munist officers who are dispatched to trouble areas for on-the-gpot pacification. In other parts of Chins, Marshall said, these groups have straighten- ed out "what seemingly were im- possible conditions" with almost never a failure. Troops to Manchuria Here are the high spots of Manchurian-Chinese situation and other points which Marshall em- phasized at his news conference in one of Secretary Byrnes' rooms at the state department. 1. An army of. American-trained Chinese troops, the best in China, is "now embarking for presumably on American ships, ia order to take over control there. Meanwhile minor clashes involving Communist groups are going on in that country and there is much restless moving about. The Na- tionalist-Communist agreement pro- vides definitely for the central government to take over. 2. Meanwhile United States marine and army forces, the latter being all non-combatant, the being cut to a minimum as fast as pos- sible. Marshall estimated marines would be released by the last reduction he approved, and said that force now is down to about 30-odd thousand. The army units are being reduced to the number essential to carry on air transport and supply operations.
