declared Thurs day that the conflict of view joints among the allies is serious iut he echoed a recent statement jy Prime Minister Stalin that here is no immediate danger of war Byrnes spoke at a luncheon of he American club in Paris After every great war which las been won by the combined ef orts of many nations there has icen a conflict among the allies in the making peace Byrnes said It would be folly to deny he seriousness of the conflict in viewpoints among the allies after his war To ignore conflict or min imize its seriousness will not solve the conflict nor help the road to peace To exaggerate that conflict and ts seriousness on the other band only makes more difficult the res olution of the conflict S concur most heartily in the view recently expressed by Gen eralissimo Stalin that there is no mmediate danger of war I hope hat his statement willput an end a thetmwarrantedcharges that any nation or groupof nations is seeking to encircle the Soviet Union or that the responsible leaders of the Soviet Union so be He added the hope that Stalins words would dispel the unwar ranted charges that the United States is seeking touse its posses sion of the atomic bomb as a threat of forceagainst the Soviet BELMONT RADIO BIDS ON HEMP PLANT WAA to Decide on Within 10 Days Acre Bid on Land Anoffer of by the Bel niont Radio corporation was the ligh bid for the Mason City

been received for the plant Union However Byrnes said Ameri canforeign policy will continue to follow a strong line Just because war is not now imminent we must take the great est care not to plant the seeds of a future war We must seek less to defend our actions in the eyes of those who agree with us and more to defend our actions in the eyes of those who do not agree with us The secretary declared his be lief that nobody wants war today but he said decrying it is no1 enough The difficultyis that while no nation wants war nations may pursue policies or courses of ac tion whichlead to

prison and nobody was quite certain how long they would stay here Franz von Papen Hjalmar Schacht and Hans Fritzsche agreed 0 spend another night as guests of the army in the prison where hey have been held since last November This climaxed another day of offagain onagain shillyshally ng in which the three nazis first vcre threatened with arrest by Serman police then allegedly won 1 safe conduct out of the Amer can zone and finally apparently failed to win approval from any other zone to receive them The mixedup status of the 3 acquitted but still far from liber ated nazis was somewhat clari ied by a statement from Lieut Gen Lucius D Clay deputy American military commander in Berlin Clay said that lThe 3 still were technically in U S army custody They were army prisoners before the trials and after acquittal technically re verted to that status 2 The question of whether local German authorities have a right to arrest them and try them under denazification procedure is a legal one which is being dis cussed The question of the safe conduct demanded by the trio to another zone depends on the willingness of another zone com mander to admit them That may take 2 or 3 days to determine he said In the meantime the trio were Minnesotan Charged With Manslaughter Northwobd An information charging manslaughter againsi Conrad Ringstad of Albert Lea was filed Thursday by

weeks ago a Belgian airliner crashed near Gander A with loss of 27 lives AP Wirephoto Disappearing Hog and Cattle Act Breath Taking Unappreciated Cows Selling Higher Than Without OP A Chicago great disap pearing hog and cattleact acol ussal presentation now featured at all livestock markets rolled into its 2nd breathtaking month Thursday before a nationwide audience watching with baffled eyes and njeatless digestive tracts It was on Sept 3 the day after Labor day that the curtain went up on this unparalleled spectacle of the magicians show ivestock pens jammed the week Defore empty except for a few driedup cows arid emaciated pigs Since then the act has been re peated daily to an utterly unap preciative clientele and agricul ture department statistics for Sep tember showed receipts at record lows A minor feature of the perform ance somewhat overlooked in the concentration on the all star shortage is the fact that beef cows1 in a market controlled by price ceilings are selling at high er prices than they were in the free markets of July and August How anyone could buy live stock meat at higher prices and sell at lower prices and still make a profit was an incidental item of bewilderment to traders With the 2nd month of the per formance startingmost critics here predicted it would be taken off the boards But they couldnt agree on when President Truman predicted in the near future but Price Decon trol Board Chairman Thompson said it would be some time Dep uty OPA Administrator Baker gave to 4 weeks but Recon version Director Steelman fore cast the shortage will become worse this winter Livestock experts searching the records found that hog receipts invariably increase substantially Price and Wage Increases Stopor Steelman Reconversion Chief Suggests Consumers Refuseto BuyHigh Washington UR thief John R Steelman Thursday appealed to business and labor to ease up on price and wage increase demands Otherwise he warned the na tions economy will wind up in a boom and bust The consuming public could help Steelman said if it refused to buy things at higher prices Business should even reduce prices where it can He made his plea lor coopera tion from the major economic seg ments of the nation in his 1st quarterly report to the president and congress since taking on the job as director of war mobilization and reconversion Steelman who only a few weeks ago issued an order modifying wage stabilization controls in or der to end a maritime strike de clared that the nations economy has now reached a fork in the road One highway could lead to a greater more stable prosperity than ever before If the other is chosen it will lead to a disastrous inflation and economic collapse To business he addressed this appeal Business as a whole must fol low the lead of some of the busi nessmen who are acting to hold prices down wherever possible To labor Labor as a whole must support the labor leaders who are work ing toward industrial peace and not pushing for uneconomic wage increases which might precipitate t wageprice spiral To agriculture The farmers must maintain their high level of production for reasonable prices Is the very bas of our living standards To the consuming public Public resistance to highei prices Increased saving and self denial in the cases of goods which are not yet plentiful can be a tremendously effective weapon to keep prices in line Steelman indicated clearly tha he regarded price controls as the key element in the fight agains inflation and he admitted the ad ministration doesnt have much in the antiinflation weapons Business itself could takethi first and most salutary action to stem the threat of an economic collapse by reducing wherever possible without re ducing wages There can be no doubt he added that in some Industrie the profit position is such tha prices could be reduced and profit still be maintained at a satisfac tory level This will be even more true In the coming year as volum increases and unit costs come down Steelman said that despite pay increases granted in many indus tries gross weekly earnings of all workers in manufacturing indus tries dropped approximately 8 per cent between April 1945 aa July 1946 Steelman pointed out that price have already advanced further in the 3 months since the origina price control act expired last Jun 30 than they did in the previous 38 months He cited the increasein civilian employment to an alltime high o 58 million in August a drop in unemployment to 2000000 a rec ord high of a year in income payments to individu als and new peaks in
