Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 2, 1946, Mason City, Iowa NORTH IOWAS DAILY PAPER EDITED FOR THE HOME HPARTMENT OF AND ARCHt WOINE6 U THE NEWSPAPER THAT VOL MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS Aaodited Preg and United Preu Fun Leased wbrej Ftve Cents a Ccrpyl LEWIS MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY MAHCH 2 1916 NO STRIKE NOTICE 5 Jumps Russia for Attacks PROTESTS RED STRIPPING ACT INMANCHURIA Charges Hostile Act in Russian Attacks on 2 U S Navy Planes Washington United States told Russia off Saturday for 2 soviet attacks on navy planes off the Manchurian coast and for the red armys removal of Man churias industrial equipment The 2nlay protest provided an unexpected followup to the speech of Secretary of State Byrnes Thursday forshadgwing a much tougher approach in future dealings with Moscow In protesting the attacks on American planes the navy used very strong language It termed one incident a hostile act and called the other unjustifiable The navys protest coincided with a state department declara tion that Russia had no right under any allied agreement to strip industrial equipment from the former Japanese puppet state of Manchuria The attacks on American planes both were reported to have taken place in the Port ArthurDairen area and the navy pointed out that under the HussoChinese treaty last August Dairen is supposed to be a free port open to all nations but administered by China According to the navy the first soviet attack on a U S plane in this area took place last October and the 2nd last month When the first incident was protested the navy said Russian authorities Soviets were responsible for defense the Port Arthur area under the treaty with China and that Ameri can planes must not approach within 12 miles of the coast with out previous permission The navy rejected this reply pointing out that the American plane was 25 miles at sea when fired on by soviet aircraft and that Russia had never notified the United States ii intended to apply a 12mile limit in sovietoccupied territory Moscow never answered this protest It was this incident the navy characterized as a hostile act The American plane involved was a mariner patrol plane on a rou tine fght to check on shipping fa those waters The second episode occurred Feb 20 when 2 Russian fighter planes overtook another mariner near Dairen and gave warning bursts of machine gun fire for about 10 min utes The plane was not hit how ever and was able to return to its base at Tsingtao China The navy declared Russian ac tion in this case was unjustifi able but acknowledgd the Amer ican planes pilot had disregarded orders and had gone inland from the coast Disciplinary action has been instituted against the pilot the navy said The announcement stated how ever that The navy department is in forming the soviet government that the action of the Russian planes in opening fire is unjusti fiable in view of friendly relations existing between the 2 countries In neither instance did the navy planes return fire the department declared The specific reason for the state departments broadside against soviet removal of industrial equip ment from Manchuria was not in indicated However it did follow closely after the assertion of a red army commander at Mukden this week that the equipment was be ing removed in accord with a Big Three agreement i The state department said flatly the United States has no agree ment secret or otherwise with the soviet government in regard to war booty in Manchuria Some time ago we informed the soviet government that disposal of Japanese external assets such as industries in Manchuria was a matter of common interest and concern to those allies who bore the major burden in defeating Ja pan and that it would be most in appropriate at this time to make any final disposition of Japanese external assets in Manchuria eith er by removal from Manchuria of such industrial assets as war booty or by agreement between the soviet and Chinese governments for the control of such assets Diplomatic observers noted the reference to allies who bore the major burden in defeating Japan and interpreted it as a not too subtle reminder that the red army did not get into action until a week before Tokyo announced uncondi tional surrender PARENTS REUNITED WITH MISSING Dr Andrew Taylor and Mrs Taylor of Charlotte N C hug their 4yearold daughter Terry after their re union in Annapolis Md The reunion took place at the home of Police Commissioner Thomas G Basil where Terry and the 19yearold nursemaid who posed as her mother

past Saturdays deadline and indicated that a joint anglo American protest may be made Foreign office sources made it clear that they regard the soviet decision as a clear breach of the Britishsoviet pact signed in 1D42 They handed to correspondents copies of the treaty and anjrlo soviet exchanges on the pledge by both big powers to have their troops out of Iran by March 2 Britain possibly in conjunction with the United States is expfeted to protest the soviet action and ask for an explanation The Russian radio announced Friday that red army troops would remain in the northern parts of

despite the warning of Hous ing Expediter Wilson W Wyatt that each days delay is costing the nation 3000 new living units The house which originally was scheduled to vote on he legislation Wednesday was in re cess until Monday and it was evi dent that administration leaders needed the weekend breather for a new effort to muster badly needed support for the blH Mr Truman wants Indeed there were strong in dications the white house might have to recast completely its housing proposals for the domi nant house opposition gave scant heed Friday to Mr Trumans spe cial plea that approval be given to provisions he considered vital In an urgent letter to Speaker Rayburn Mr Truman asked specifically for congression al approval of provisions for price ceilings on all houses and au thority to use in subsidies to break the bottleneck in construction materials But the letter arrived Friday a few minutes after the house voted 154 to 68 to kill the part of the bill putting price ceilings on existing dwellings Then fighting a delaying ac tion administration leaders brought about adjournment of the house until Monday before a vote could be reached on the sub sidy issue Republicans and some southern democrats joined in opposition to the administration proposals and even after the presidents letter arrived the trend appeared to be running strong toward passage of a republican substitute for the administration bill The substitute authored by Rep Wolcott omits any reference to price ceilings on homes or to use of subsidies to bring about larger production of building materials
