WILL BE ENDED Note Reveals Surprise Nation Didnt Volunteer in Advance to Pay Washington W The United States handed Yugoslavia a blank bill for damages Wednesday with a sharp notice that it expects Mar shal Titos government to pay the full amount when it is written in If Tito agrees this country stands ready to write finished to the incidents in which Z un armed American transport planes were forced down by Yugoslav fighters at a cost of 5 American lives Should Tito refuse the United States might have to dust off its 13 day old threat to take the case before the United Nations secur ity council Most American officials con cerned with the matter appeared to believe Tito would agree to in demnity terms following his re cent expression of regret over the incidents and assurances that they would not recur But no one was willing to pre dict for the record the Yugoslav premiers reaction The notice that the United States expects damages for the loss of life and property was con tained in a 3100 word note deliv ered by Undersecretary of State William L Clayton to Dr Sergije Makiedo Yugoslav charge daf faires Tuesday night The note In fact expressed surprise that Yugo slavia had not volunteered In ad vance to pay Beyond that Clayton painstak ingly citing numbers dates places and types of aircraft denied a series of Tito claims that Ameri can planes were flying virtually at will over Yugoslavia without permission and thus violating that countrys sovereignty After answering each point of the Tito indictment the Ameri can undersecretary declared that the alleged violations of Yugoslav territory must have been made by planes other than United States planes He did not elab orate on that point Tito had claimed 278 unauth orized American flights over Yugoslavia since July 16

the Yugoslav frontier No American planes have flown over Yugoslavia intentionally without advance approval of Yugoslav authorities unless forced to do so in an emergency he asserted The pilot of the plane which crashed Aug 9 got off course the American note said because of heavy clouds icing and high winds But as for the Augr 19 crash Clayton said it was impos sible to get complete information
