Oklahoma: Cloudy, occasional Jignt rain west and south Sunray; Monday fair extreme west, light ram east and central, no decided change in temperatures.
WASHINGTON, March 23.— (JP)—\ possibility arose today that the atom bomb t^sts may be put off still further, in the interest of world amity.
Two high administration sources, closely linked with preparations for the experiments in the Pacific, said they may be postponed indefinitely, until the nations are pulling together better. Senator Huffman (D.-Ohio) called for flat cancellation, describing the trials as “sheer folly."
The joint army-navy task force assigned to the experiment went ahead with plans to carry out the first test on July I, six weeks later than the original date. Vice Adm. W. H. P. Blandy, the commander, said in a statement that his force was ready to meet the original schedule. This made it plain that the delav did not have its inception with the task force. Talk Of Reasons "Dangerous"
The two administration officials would not allow the use of their names in view of President Trumans announcement last night that the historic events, scheduled to start May 15, were postponed for about six weeks to permit attendance of congressmen who want to be witnesses.
One of them, however, said it was “obvious” that this was not the sole reason for the delay, and that it was ‘ rather dangerous” to talk in detail about the real reason at this time.
He pointed to what he said was
He referred only mildly, however, to a "diversity of opinion” rn democratic ranks. He left it to Secretary of Commerce Wallace to swing hard both at dissident democrats and the republican opposition.
Speaking immediately before the chief executive—both addresses were broadcast—Wallace declared "great harm” had been done in the party by "those who have joined in a coalition against progress,” who wrap themselves with the traditions of Jefferson and Jackson, but "whose actions telje their pretensions.” Wallace added:
“So to keep our own party on the side of progress, we must call upon those democrats who have been harmful to our cause to return to the way of Jefferson and Jackson—and to honor our side of the fence with their ‘mugs* as well as their ‘wumps.’"
Neither the president nor Wallace mentioned the latter's demand earlier this week that congressmen who jump over party lines be expelled from the partakes Part of Responsibility But the president asserted that under the party system, political responsibility must rest with the chief executive and with the majority in congress.
, “To. roc** this responsibility,” he said all our members in the congress must cooperate wholeheartedly and help carry out our party platform. Unless this is done, party program is delayed."
For the most part, Mr. Truman dealt with problems at home. But he said that America must lead the way to a better world order !• „ increasingly close

The tall lawmaker, who helped draft the United Nations charter tm/xWas a delegate to the first UNO general assembly, added that there never need be war between Russia and the United States “if common sense and realism shall govern our foreign policies in Washington and Moscow."
He made the assertions in a speech prepared for a civic homecoming here at his birthplace.
One Answer SUH Missing Although Vandenberg found Jne progress made so far by the UNO “deeply encouraging," he ?.?id the answer still is missing to “the paramount conundrum of modern times”—“What is Russia up to now?”
Of course the United Nations cannot survive in its present form if the so-called ‘Big Five’ fall apart," he said and added:

Heilungkiang, northern province where the communists have been reported setting up an independent regime, wrould leave Changchun, Manchuria’s capital, for Peiping because they were unable to assume their duties.
Foreign diplomatic sources in Chungking took an extremely pessimistic view of the internal situation. They said General Marshall’s personal influence was the dominating factor in forcing the communists and the Kuomintang to sign the recent unification agreement and without him on the scene “the situation is rapidly getting out of hand ”
Foreign observers asserted that both the communist and Kuomintang factions were taking advantage of the special U. SL envoy’s absence in Washington.

He added:
‘‘I think they will continue to press for every advantage they can get, according to their own nationalist lights, short of major war. That is their business. We have encouraged them in it by our secret diplomacy and our surrenders at Yalta and elsewhere when we were under the pressures of the exigencies of war.”

foundations of the United’ Na-tions, Mr. Truman promised. Surely, we shall never retreat merely because of dangers along the road to peace and progress.” Americans Yearn For Peace The chief executive did not enumerate the dangers he saw. But he said Americans yearn for a sound and lasting peace "above 3nd beyond all political consideration.”
Similarly, he remarked that the solution of tremendous social problems of our day requires wholehearted cooperation of every element within the coun-try and should not be a "partisan affair.”
"The United States of America w3 achieved world leadership,” Mr. Truman asserted. “For that result the democratic party as the party of enlightened internationalism, is primarily responsible. We must maintain that leadership. And the democratic' party must continue to lead the way.” Placing Mr. Truman in the company of Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Wilson and Roosevelt, Wallace said no president can hit nard in the people’s cause without being reviled.

TULSA, Okla., March 23.—(>P) —A critical beef shortage is in store for Oklahoma and the nation, Tulsa packers and distributors said today in a Tulsa World survey.
They reported drastic slaughter reductions and blamed the situation on OPA price ceilings, a (rowing black market and scarcity of feed.
Packing companies claim they are unable to slaughter cattle at a profit and cannot compete in buying with black market buyers
No relief is in sight before July, the packers said, when heavy grass-fed steers reach the market.
meeting Monday, might pass without injury its most dangerous test to date.
UNO speculation based on statements by Premier Ahmed Qavam in Tehran is that in the next few days the Russians may begin to pull their troops out of Iran and back into Russia.
Such a movement would tal^e the wind out of the Iranian crisis, reducing it to a situation the security council should be able to handle with relative ease.
This speculation privately expressed by many authorities here was checked, however, by their fear that nothing might come of the bright prospects raised by Qavam—prospects heightened by Prime Minister Stalin’s assuances yesterday of Russian backing for UNO.
One new element of uncertainty is just where the Iranian government stands at the moment in relation to Russia, the United States and Britain. Qavam, who predicted a satisfactory solution of the Russo-Iranian situation, termed "unauthorized” an appeal ti the security council by his ambassador here, Hssein Ala, for quick action on the Iranian case.
Russia is asking for a delly until April IO. The United States has come out for immediate action and so has Britain. However, if Iran, as the nation in trouble, s^.ys there is nc^need to hurry, or if it actually favors delay in the interest of more direct negotiation with Russia, the props would be knocked from under the U. S and Britain.

Bock from Middle East, Colls Russia Greatest Danger That Ever Menaced U. S.
BOSTON, March 23.—(JP)— Terming Russia the “greatest danger that ever threatened America," George H. Earle, former Pennsylvania governor and ex-diplomat, today called for an ultimatum to thq Soviet to "get back to her own country” or °*L-, the atomic bomb on them while we have it and before they get it.”
Earle voiced his opinions in an interview in his stateroom aboard the American export liner Exhibitor, which brought him back to this country after several years in the Balkans and middle east.
He was accompanied by his pretty bride of three months, the fomer Jacqueline Sacle, 22, of Belgium. Earle indicated he would tour the country and devote the immediate future to “making America realize what a frightful menace we have in Russia.”
The former minister to Austria and Bulgaria declared that “if Russia had the atom bomb, there would be few Americans left
Earle, who served as an obser-ver for the late President Roosevelt while a commander in the navy, declared he probably knew more about Russia “than any American living,” and accused American statesmen of being Pollyannas” on the subject of Russia and "lulling" the American people into a false sense of security.
Pointing out that attempts to
appease Hitler were a costly failure, Earle termed Russia “a far greater threat”

WYNONA Okla., March 23. — (/P)—Damage estimated at $500,-000 was cauked when a tornado cut a three-mile path through the southeast edge of Wynona last night, unroofing many homes and destroying stored grain, feed and farm equipment.
No one was killed or hurt and neighbors today were providing shelter for those whose homes were too badly damaged for use.
The tornado, coming from the southwest and preceded by ram and hail, ripped into the Wynona valley location about 9 p.m.
A 30-foot cattle trailer at the Curtis Rhodes ranch was lifted into the air, knocked off the top of a windmill and shattered an oak tree as it came down. The Rhodes home was not touched.
Several thousand bales of hay and other barn contents were reported destioyed.
At the Barnsdall oil plant a mile southeast of town a large bullwheel was crushed and other machinery severely damaged. Seven buildings at an oil field camp were blown down.

It was the second instance to* day of Europe’s post-war poHtical irritations cutting across the

Follows Other Fusses
Earlier Poland and the United Kingdom indulged in charges and counter-charges about the manner in w'hich refugees were being cared for in Europe.
The decision to discuss Russian troop actions in Austria came from UNRRA’s central commit* tee, which wants the full council to discuss the effect Russian requisition on the Austrians has had on the UNRRA program there.
* Feon°v objected
to UNRRA’s debating the question. He contended it was purely a political question and should properly be decided by the allied control commission in Berlin.
Three Vote With Russia He said "the United States made the* proposal for the central committee. My delegation does not feel it has enough information on the subject, and I am certain several other delegations are in the same position Discussion here would, therefore, only be one-sided.”
Only Yugoslavia, Byelorussia and the Ukraine voted with Russia and the matter will come up before the council later.
Earlier Poland charged that displaced persons in the British zone in Germany were “exposed to the systematic propaganda of irresponsible trouble makers whose aiqg is to sow the seeds of another war.”
