Marshall spe cial TJ S envoy hasreleased ver batim exchanges of notes between his office and the 2 battling Chi nese factions As if emphasizing their rejec tion of Chiang KaiSheks truce the jommunists intensified their assault on Paoting capture of which would sever the govern ment communication line between Peiping and Shihchiachung and give the reds a strong bargaining point in negotiations reported from Peiping Dewey Splits With Toft on Nuernberg War Crime Trial By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Gov Thomas E Deweyof New York and Senator Robert A Taft of Ohio potential rivals for the 1948 republican presidential nomina tion split sharply Tuesday over the nazi war crimes trials As democrats kept up their attacks oh Tafts criticism of the Nuernberg verdicts Dewey touched off the GOP leadership clash in New York Monday night when he came out bluntly in opposition to the Ohio senators views Without mentioning Taft by name Dewey defended the fairness of the trials anddeclared one can have any sympathy for these nazi leaders who brought such agony upon the world In Washington democrats who have experienced their own intra party troubles of late gleefully hailed the Taftpewey cleavage as likely to lessen the emphasis on the foreign schism between then Secretary of Com merce Henry A Wallace and Sec retary of State James F Byrnes Senator Lucas D de scribing Tafts stand as a classi cal example ofhis muddled and confused thinking predicted in a statement that Carroll Recce chairman of the republican na tional committee will not per mit the senator to make any more speeches Lucas added I charge that the Senator Tail made the statement about the Nuernberg trial solely for po litical vengeance or advantage And I predict that this will be a boomerang upon his aspirations for the presidential nomination in 48 Taft said Saturday that the Nuernberg verdicts condemning 12 top nazis to death were a mis carriage of justice and violate that fundamental principle of American law that a man can not be tried uriSer a law enacted after the alleged offense was com mitted Deweys statement in which he was joined by Irving M Ives GOP nominee for U S senator in New York declared flatly that the German war criminals had fair It continued While the just penalties im posed can neither expiate their sins nor bring back the life of millions for whose deaths they are responsible their sentences will serve as a warning against future acts of aggression and op pression for totalitarian rulers Goering Blubbers as He Removes Pictures of Family Nuernberg UR Hermann Goeringburst into a fit of weep ing when he decided to remove pictures of his wife and daugh ter from his cell a U S army officer re vealed Tuesday but none of the con demned nazis has shown any sign of col lapse The army lifted a cornerof the curtain se crecy over the GOERING Nuernberg prison where the nazi war crim inals werewaiting out their last 8 days The glimpse insidethe death row showed some of them

first conference He wasHanked by publicrelations bfficers Disclosing for the first time that there had been no breakdowns or collapses among the condemned menTeich said Goering after a spell of brooding came to a de cision to get the pictures of his wife and daughter out of his cell He put them in an envelope and sent them to his lawyer Then he blubbered like a small boy from whose handa treasure has been snatched But Goering maintained his poise throughout his last meeting with his wife Monday Teich said Frau Goering took advantage of a revision in rules permitting the wives of the condemned one more visit with them Of all the convicted men Goer ing generally retained the most dignity the officer reported He was followed closely by Konstan tin Von Neurath and Wilhelm Keitel the latter never losing his precise military poise Grand Admiral Erich Raeder who asked that his lifeimprison njent sentence be changed todeath before a firing squad was re ported to be the most despondent of the prisoners and Rudolf Hess the mSst indifferent The richest man in the jail ap parently was Goering whose capi talizing on opportunities for fi nancial skullduggery among the nazis was notorious He had a 14 carat diamond ring set in plati num two big emeralds and some watches Keitel Hans Frank Julius Streicher and Joachim Von Rib bentrop were writing or had fin ished their memoirs They were censored and passed on to defense lawyers without deletion Teich said nothing objectionable having been found Of the 50 or so letters arriving daily for the nazis mostof them crackpot Goering was gettingthe most The rabid letters were not being delivered to the condemned men Teich said The prisoners have entire liberty to dispatch letters of their own Questioned about precautions against any suicide attempts Teich said the precautions remained the same being so good that they could not be improved upon The prisoners have complained little he said But once they la

safety conferences and 4 others have set definite dates for them Hall said While I will acknowledge the gains which have been made Inthe past months I do not hesitate to say that for 2thirds of tie

Bevin spoke at an afternoon session of the conference 1 of 3 scheduled for the day as the dele gates raced against a deadline for completing their work Bevin denied soviet charges that Britain had strategic inter ests in Trieste and was trying to establish an AngloAmerican base there Great BritaJn strategic interest in Trieste atalliarid never has approached the problem from that view he said There fore I hope these unfounded al legations will not again be re peated Bevin countered a morning speech by Paul Henri Spaak of Belgium who bitterly criticized the procedure of the conference and especially the refusal of the Big 4 to modify any of their prior agreements On the whole the methods used here may be the best Bevin said Britain thinks it was a good thing to hear the smaller nations to spend so much time hearing the former enemy states 2000000016 BEEF LOAN FOR filS OVERSEAS Advisory Committee Authorizes Filing of Petition for Decontrol Washington war de partment announced Tuesday that negotiations are in progress lor a loan of 20000000 pounds of beef belonging to Great Britain to meet the armys current need for troops overseas The department had said earlier the negotiations

their appeals in the same room where the nazi peoples court dealt out death sentences to scores of Germans in the 1944 Hitler bomb plot Allied sources close to the council said they saw little chance of clemency for any ot the 16 particularly the 11 who appealed their death sentences General Joseph Pierre Koenig of France called a meeting of the allied council for 11 a m Wednes day to review the sentences im posed a week ago by the interna tional tribunal If the council rejects the ap peals as expected Hermann Goer ing and the other 10 under death sentence will be hanged in Nuern berg Oct 16 Rudolf Hess and the other 6 with prison sentences will be transferred to Berlin American military government sources expected the council to discuss the requests of Field Mar shal Wilhelm Keitel and ColGen Alfred Jodl to be shot instead of hanged Whether the council has the authority to alter the manner of death penalty prescribed by the tribunal was not clear The Lon don charter establishing the court authorized the council to reduce punishments but forbade it to in crease the severity of sentence or change the tribunals findings It was expected that the council will be unable to act on the re quest of Grand Admiral Erich Haeder to be shot by a firing squad instead of serving a life sentence Kaltenbrunner chief of nazi security police is the only one of the 12 doomed men who did not file

found it would relieve an immediate shortage by approxi mately 5000000 pounds weekly pending an expected increase in cattle slaughter about oW month hence Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P Anderson has virtually com mitted himself to rejecting the pe tition The next step would be au appeal to the independent decon trol board Aides of Anderson reported meanwhile that the secretary is awaiting white house reaction to the proposals he discussed with President Truman last week for putting meat back on the nations dinner tables These officials declined to dis cuss the proposals except to state thatseizure of livestock on farms is not being considered The subject of federal seizure action in another direction was raised however by Senator Green DR I who told report ers he thinks the government should take over any excess stocks of meat found in packers ware houses Green also said the justice de partment should investigate whether there is a conspiracy to withhold meat from consumer trade channels There are reports that packers and cattle feeders are striking hoping to break OPA the senator asserted I dont think they ought to be allowed to strike No Essential Change in
