THE ADA EVENING NEWS BUY MORE WAR BONDS More Deals At Yalta Hoi Yet Known! President's Remarks Hint Big Three Made Agreements Not Yet Made Public By ALEX H. SINGLETON WASHINGTON, Fob. I.—(JP)_ President Truman left open today the possibility that the wartime Big Three — Franklin D. Roosevelt. Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin—may have reached agreements which still remain a secret Renewed speculation on that question stemmed from Secretary of State Byrnes’ disclosure this Y;’e€^ , tost Mr. Roosevelt and Churchill had agreed at Y*dta to support Russia’s claim for^ permanent possession of the strategic Kurile islands and Sakhalin, north of Japan. Asked at his news conference yesterday whether additional international agreements would be brought out later, Mr. Truman replied he could not answer that query but said there were agreements signed in that way at all the Big Three meetings. He expressed belief that most of them have been made public. Then he added that if any of them have not been disclosed yet, SSL W^J .B® at the proper time* The chief executive described such secret pacts as wartime agreements drafted in an effort t° arrive at arrangements with our allies to win the war. Until government officials revealed recently that the Russians were moving into the Hurtles “bag and baggage,” it had been understood generally that tne Yalta agreement provided only for Soviet occupation of the islands as part of the war against Japan. Foreign Observers Will Not See Bomb Secrecy Assured at Tests; Actually, Paw Americans Have Soon Assembled Bombs, Jags Never Had Time By ELTON C. FAY WASHINGTON, Feb. I.—(AP)—Foreign observers may go to the Bikini Atoll tests but they won’t see the atom bomb. This became apparent today as the cloak of securiy was drawn still tighter around this country’s No. I secret. Officials concerned with the secrecy phase of the test said there are two paramount security points: The nature of the bomb itself and the precise, measurable results obtained against military and naval equipment. ~    ♦    The    reasons    for the second BB ■ Bfc* ■ ■    P?1^    are    based    on the desire to Benn Replies To Red Charge Briton, Attar Russian Charges About Greece, Says Moscow Endangering World Peace Chiang May Step Aside! la Politics I Approach of All-Party Government, Ho Soya, May Soon End One-Man Rule Here s Peek at Future—-Radar-Controlled Air Freighters Polio Drive Funds Piling Up. in Final Count for County Almost every business firm and almost every person in Pontotoc county joined county drive chairman in promoting the March •    campaign and officials or the Pontotoc county Infantile Paralysis Association are taking time out to thank persons and firms for their cooperation *7 CamP Fire'girls. the McSwain.

M HIGHTOWER LONDON, Feb. I.—(JP)—Foreign Secretary Bevin told the* United Nations security council today that “Moscow and Communist party propaganda” endangered world peace. This, he said, was “the real danger* to peace. Bevin made this statement in blasting back at Russian charges that Britain imperiled world security by maintaining troops which, the Soviet said, supported Fascist and pro-monarchist elements in Greece. Bevin demanded a straight yes or no verdict from the council on the Russian charge. Russia, through Vice Commissar Andrei Vishinsky, argued for an hour before the council that British forces were “contributing to disorder” in Greece. He said a “white terror** existed in that country, and said the Soviet union demanded quick and unconditional withdrawal of the troops. Bevin responded that the real da“fSI\ the peace of the world today was the “incessant propaganda from Moscow with ho sign of friendship.’* This incessant suspicion is the danger, Bevin asserted. “I ask for a straight verdict—have we been endangering the peace?” Opening the councils consideration of Russia’s demand for action on the Greek situation, Soviet Vice-Commissar Andrei Vishmsky declared: “The horrors perpetrated today in Greece, the white terror, are widely known to everyone. It is not necessary to prove them here.” Mw Says Pauley Mentioned 6Hk Remembers Mention Of Campaign Contributions In Talk af Oil Suit withhold details of the bomb’s action as well as to guard against letting out technical information on just how vulnerable American equipment will be shown to be—just in case -someone else should build a bomb and decide to use it. Few Ever Saw Bombs Foreign observers need not feel slighted if they fail to see the bomb. They will have company in that. Persons familiar with the history of the atomic bomb estimate that not more than a few hundred persons ever saw the weapon in its ready-for-use state. At least 160,000 persons worked on the Manhattan project, making the components of the bomb, but only a handful of military personnel and scientists were present when the first test bomb was assembled and exploded in New Mexico last summer. _ The atom boidbariers who new the two bombs, to Nagasaki and Hiroshima saw the world’s most destructive weapon. A comparative handful of men assembled the two bombs for the two missions. And those about compose the exclusive little club of “I Saw an Atom Bomb” folk.

I, <JP>— Interior Secretary Harold Ickes replied affirmatively today when hq was asked at a congressional hearing whether Edwin W. Pauley had once mentioned “campaign contributions in California” in connection with the government’s Tideland oil suit. The question was asked by Senator Tobey (R-NH) who is fighting Pauley’s confirmation as undersecretary of the navy. Senator Tobey asked Ickes, a witness in the confirmation hearing, if it were true that “Pauley ever told you that filing the suit would be bad politically and that he could raise several hundred thousand dollars in campaign contributions in California if the suit were not filed?” Ickes replied (hat the question was “highly embarrassing, but the answer is yes.” (Continued on Page 2 Column 8) There's Homestead Exemption Deadline On Applications County Assessor Chas.

They have until March 15, but they must be asked for it by that time in order to get the exemption. Personal and intangible taxes must be assessed before March 15 to avoid any penalty. From March 15 to April 15 there will be a IO per cent penalty for personal taxes and after April 15 the penalty will be 20 percent.

Rush AHI Wants TripoNhnh LONDON, Feb., I, (JR—Russia has renewed her demands for a Soviet trusteeship over Italy’s African colony of Tripolitania in discussions of the Italian peace treaty here by the deputy foreign ministers council, a representative who attends the council sessions, said today. The colonial question has come up several times during the past two weeks, said this informant, w!j® *sl$ed that his name be with held. The Russians have made it clear that they are standing firmly on their insistence for a strong hand in the Mediterranean, this source said. The United States and Britain were reported equally firm, contending that the Italian colonies rn North Africa should be under Nations, with provisions for their independence later. The territorial issue is the crux of the Italian treaty. Committee Named On School Laws OKLAHOMA CITY. Feb.

He pledged that all the farreaching decisions of the unity conference would be carried out. These included: Free and open activities by all political parties; nationalization of the army; nationwide compulsory education; and economic reconstruction. Chou Sees End of Strife Chou En-lai, No. 2 communist who helped reach the unity conference accord, today expressed lull confidence that there will be no more civil strife in China. He said that apart from minor clashes in Shantung and the east river district of Kwantung, near Canton, peace prevails throughout the country. He affinned that the commun-k prepared to carry out fully all agreements reached at the conference. Chou said comunist forces would be reduced to 20 divisions, which would entail demobilization of about three-fourths of its army.

Gearhart Aphorize Strike Vole Among 71,000 Railway Engineers FIVE CENTS THE COPT Truman (alls Fads Board, Bowles In Administration Reported Ready With New Proposition far Settling Steel Strike By WILLIAM NEEDHAM WASHINGTON. Feb. I.—(/T*)—. President Truman today summoned the steel fact - finding board and Price Administrator Chester Bowles to the White House amid reports that the administration is ready with a new proposition for settling the steel strike. The White Horse announced that the fact-finding board had been called to a 4 pm. (EST) conference •with Mr. Truman. An OPA official said that Bowles had been asked to cut short a vacation in South Carolina and return to the capital immediately. He was expected late tonight or early tomorrow. Bowles, who reportedly favors a $2 50 ton increase in steel prices. had intended to stay in South Carolina until Sunday or Monday. Seisure Not In Plan The new plan for ending tho 12-day-old steel walkout was reported in' the hands of top level White House advisors, but federal seizure of the industry was not to be involved as yet. Some form of showdown action is embodied in the new proposal* according to an official who withheld his name, and it will be submitted to President Truman once its details are reviewed. Mounting urgency spurred work on the new' formula, for government aides are frankly concerned about the strangling effect of the steel shutdown on other industries. Latest Move Missed Fire At the same time, a high labor department official indicated the government’s latest move in the General Motors strike appeared to have missed fire—temporarily, at least. Chances for an early end in that 13-day old walkout once more were rated slim. Steel Prices Involved There was no indication what fresh steps guitarnment advisers were considering in the steel situation but persons close to policy-makers explained that prices obviously are the principal obstacles to a steel wage agreement.
