determine the numbers and posi tions ot allied troops and the whereabouts of allied air and sea bases in countries other than oc cupied former enemy territories Britain immediately linked the new Russian move with the com plaint the Soviet Ukraine has fiied against Greece charging the Greeks were disturbing the peace in Albanian border incidents and criticizing the presence of British troops in Greece durin the cam paigning for next Sundays pleb iscite there But United Nations circles spec ulated that it opened a whole new phase of Russian policy in the security council where Thurs day night Portugal Ireland and TransJordan were excluded from the U N by Russian vetoes while Sovietsupported Albania and out er Mongolia failed to rally the ne cessary votes Sweden Iceland and Afghanistan were approved for membership without opposi tion Their bids now go to the general assembly for approval The scope of the new Russian proposal which Russian Delegate Andrei Gromyko hoped to lay be fore the council at its meeting Friday afternoon would call for intelligence on American troops m China and in the disposals of friendly alien forces over the world Gromyko brought his new de mand before the council unex pectedly Thursday night The delegates had been in session al most 9 hours and had just com pleted iheir wrangling and voting on the new members The Soviet delegate briefly men tioned the immediate aftermath of the last war and then said According to available infor mation allied troops still continue to be situated on the territory of several member states the United Nations and other states not including former enemy ter ritory He demanded that members of the U N should be required by the council to submit to it within 2 weeks which point of the terri tories of member states of the United Nations or other states ivitti the exception of former enemy territories and in what number are armed forces of other member stales of the U N sta tioned what points in the above mentioned territories are situated air and naval bases and the strength of their garrisons belong ingto the armed forces of other member states of the United Na tions He said the information should describe the conditions as ot Aug The presence of allied troops for so long a time after the end of the war a presence which Nyaiict called for by military ne cessity must provoke natural un easiness in the peoples of those countries in which foreign troops are still stationed he said DROP CHARGES ON 15 GERMANS Seized as Russian Spies in U S Zone Frankfurt UR1 U S military government legal officials at Stuttgart said Friday that Amer ican counterintelligence officers had ordered that charges against 15 Germans seized as soviet spies in the U S zone be dropped Col Jnan Sedalio chief of the American legal division in the WuerttemburgBaden area said Friday that he was instructed Tuesday by the legal advisor to counter intelligence corps in Frankfurt to drop the charges This

known whether the Germans still were in jail at Stutt gart FOUND DEAD IN AUTO TRUNK Sheriff Walter H Beuse left and Patrolman Ralph Vermillion look over the body of Edward CEhrccke of Davenport found

Puerto Rico has an average temperature of 73 degrees in win Cotton Garments Get Price Boost by OPA Expect More Washington cotton garments with another price boost Friday and dolefully ac knowledged it may not be the last The new increase about per cent at textile mills will mean another hike of 1 to 2 per cent on cotton apparel sold at retail he agency said Fridays upward revision the 4th since March brought the total jump for basic fabrics to more than 30 per cent And an OPA pricing official wiiiiidi told a reporter privately that any attempts at stabilizing cotton tex tile prices at the new level will depend almost entirely upon what happens to the prices of raw cot ton Under the OPA extender act he said he agency is required o fix fabric prices at a level which will reflect the current cost of raw cotton or parity whichever is the higher Raw cotton prices to date have followed a steadily upward trend Saying OPA will review its textile prices once a month the official added There will be more price increases if necessary to reflect the raw cotton costs A 16 per cent increase earlier this month was the first under the new OPA act Prices previously had been raised 8V per cent in to cover wage 5 per cent in April to spur production The OPA official emphasized that the last 2 hikes will not be felt by consumers until the goods make their way from mills to re tail counters This may take as much as 3 months On other OPA fronts the agency got rid of some more of its work It removed price controls from sterling silver flatware including knives forks and spoons all rub ber footwear and from manufac turers sales of certain obsolete automotive replacement parts us able exclusively in 1938 or earlier model year automobiles But more than counter balanc ing these laborsaving moves was the urgent task of a huge staff of statisticians who hoped to com plete by Friday night the job of writing new price ceilings on live stock within the formula set by Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P Anderson This first list of ceilings will apply at a m CST Sun day on cattle calves and hogs at both producer and slaughter levels The maximum price sched ules will begin to apply to distri butors on Sept 5 and at retail stores on Sept 9 Officials say the retail ceilings will mean an increase above June 30 prices of about 214 to 3cents a pound for pork and 5li to 6 cents on beef cuts ACCUSE BRITAIN AND U S WITH SHOWOFPOWER Russia Says Greeks Paving Way for Return of Exiled Monarch Paris accused the United States and Great Britain Friday of interference in next Sundays Greek election and charged Hie little Balkan country was paving the way for the return of exiled King George II with a reign of terror We know British troops are there and American warships are on their way Russian Foreign Minister V M Molotov told the peace conference during consid eration of a Greek request to con sider the GreekAlbania border dispute A few hours later Russia won the approval of the Italian eco nomic commission to the Soviets claim for in repara tions from Italy over a 7year pe riod Italian plants for the manu facture of war materiel will be drawn upon as well as Italian as sets in Romania Bulgaria and Hungary Greek and Yugoslav claims to reparations are to re ceive further study Molotov asserted it was high time we put a stop to what he called outside interference and give the Greek people a chance to select their own form of gov ernment He contended that the present form of government in Greece js very unpopular among the Greek people Greece is the only Balkan country not strongly under the influence of Russia Despite the bitter opposition of Russia and the Slav bloc the peace conference voted 12 to 7 after 4 hours of blistering debate to dis cuss the GreekAlbanian border at its next meeting The Greeks insist that part of northern Epi rus southern Albania now oc cupied by Albania actually is Greek territory Secretary of State Byrnes dur g the debate declared It seems incredible to me that we would deny one of the 21 gov ernments that furnished troops to aid us in victory the opportunity to present its as to our views on their claims The United States has no conviction on the territorial dispute but the United States would give the riEht to every member to be heard Molotov responded that Russia was not opposing a discussion of the GreekAlbanian border by the council of foreign ministers of the United States Russia Great Brit am and France He saiJ the French delegate had beca right m insisiting that the matter did not come under the 5 draft treaties prepared for peace conference consideration On the vote France sided with the Slav nations Bel gium and Norway abstained Molotov speaking from the dais without notes criticized Greece lor what he described as an at tempt to involve the foreign mini sters council in her claims against Albania This is a very dangerous ques tion because it is calculated to create trouble in the Balkans said Molotov The Russian minister asserted that Greece was attempting to create nationalistic sentiment in side Greece on the eve of the plebiscite scheduled for Sept l on the question of the return of the king An attempt is being made to utilize this conference to make claims not on an enemy but on ones neighbors Molotov said He declared thai the Greek del egation was not waiting to bring its claims before the conference m a usual democratic manner and was trying to involve the council of foreign ministers in their inflamed claims of aggrand izement Greece he said is in the grip of terrorism in which every liberty has been suppressed STRHOmjP OTTUMWA BUSES O 11 u m w a ff Ottumwans walked to work Friday City buses were idle as drivers called a strike at 2 a m Cause of the strike
