ROME, June Alcide Gasperi appealed to Italians today to support the new republic, regardless of how they voted in last week's pleb- iscite. The premier addressed the country by radio in an atmos- phere of tension created by an acrimonious exchange between his government and King Hum- bert, who reached Lisbon today for his exile. A manifesto issued last night in Humbert's name charged that the cabinet had usurped the kingr'si powers in a "revolution- ary gesture" and added that he had left Italian soil only to avoid civil war. A royal aide said Humbert would consider himself king pending a formal court ruling on the plebis- cite.

He urged that redistribution be post- poned until after the 1951 census so wartime population shifts could be considered in fixing the repre- sentation. Under the redistribution plan Quebec would gain eight seats. Brit- ish Columbia two, Ontario and Nova Scotia one each. Manitoba and Saskatchewan would each lose one. GARDINER'S VIEW Agriculture Minister Gardiner, speaking as a Saskatchewan mem- ber, said the new redistribution plan had not originated in Quebec, the most from the plan. The British North Amer- ica act had provided that Quebec's fixed total of 65 seats be used as Highlights of Baruch's address follows: "The United States proposes the creation of an international atomic development authority, to which should be entrusted all phases of the develonment and use of atomic energy. "When an adequate system for control of atomic energy, including the renunciation of the" bomb as a weapon, has been agreed upon and put into effective operation we propose that: "1. Manufacture of atomic bombs shall top: "2. Existing bos-hs shall be dis- posed of pursuant to the terms of the treaty. "3.

The redistribution problem was not that of one province alone. And there never would be unity if mem- bers talked from provincial view- points alone.

Sir Brian Robertson, depu- ty governor of the British zone of Germany, announced today that correspondents of every country may inspect Britain's progress in de-Nazifying- its zone. He told a press conference that disarmament of German forces in the British zone is complete and the elimination of German war potential is progressing on schedule. Sir Brian challenged other occuping authorities to prove they have matched Britain's record and likewise challenged them to allow free inspection of each zone by correspondents. Specifically eliminating Soviet correspondents from lookin; over the British area, he ssid: "The Russians will m.1 the same facilities for inspection of our zone as they give us. "We don't consider that the facilities the Russians tcnd in their occasional strictiy- condncted tours allow freedom of movement or observation."
