Russia Trying to Force Will Upon World, McNeil Says IJy Max llarrclson New York 'Britain warned today that If the Soviet union per- sisted in trylnR to force Its own will upon the world "the unstable peace of the world will crumble and crush" with "hideous con- sequences." UriU.sh Minister ot State Hector McNeil delivered this warning be- fore the United Nations assembly in a G.GOO-word basic policy state- ment for the United Kingdom, He vigorously attacked Russia and at the same time appealed to Moscow to drop what he called 1 Inflexible and unyielding nttltud on world problems. McNeil ridiculed the charges Russia's Andrei Y. Vlshltisky thf there is "warmongering" In tl United States. McNeil called Vl.ih insky's attack "a comedy piece." He then denied Vl.ihlniky charges that the Marshall plan fo economic aid to Europe thrcatcnc the sovereignty of any country, an accused Russia of obstructing atom control and paralyzing the socurlt council by her 20 vctoo.i. U. S. Ilsut Edge The United States held a do ctsive edge over Russia In thrc Important developments over th weekend. They were: 1. The powerful 14-natlon steer Ing committee of tho asscmbl voted 12 to 2 to recommend thn the assembly consider Secretary o State Oeorgo C. Marshall's proposa for n "little assembly" ycar-roun committee of the 55 member state Russia opposed this strongly, bu only Poland voted with the Sovlc against this recommendation, 2. The steering committee als decided to recommend -that th assembly discuss Marshall's pro- posal for a. full debate on tho In dependence of Korea. The vot again was 12 to 2, with Russl and Poland in the minority. R. Austin. No, 2 mem her of the U. S. delegation, hurlc "libel" and "falsification" charge at Andrei Y. Vlshlnsky, Sovle deputy foreign minister, who biastci the whole range of American poll cles in a speech to the asscmblj list week. Austin spoke Saturday night at a dinner meeting of the American Association for United Nations. Italian Treaty Kcvlslon In sharp contrast to Russian op- position to almost every item tha tho United States has proposed foi the general assembly, the United States offered no objection to Russian resolution tossed in by Vlshinsfcy at the end of his one hour and 33-mlnute broadside. Thus the steering committee passed on to the assembly wlthoul a record vote Vlshlnxky's resolution calling on the assembly to condemn "the criminal propaganda for a new war" which Vlshlnsky chargec was being' carried on, particularly in the United States, Turkey, Tur- key and Oreece. The steering committee completed on the list of more than CO items proposed for the assembly. It passed on to the assembly a proposal by a group of Latin'Amer- ican countries for revision of the Italian peace treaty. Andrei A. Gromyko delivered an attack on the U. S. when tho as- sembly considered the "little as- sembly" idea. This calls for forma- tions of a committee on peace and security which would 'have the power to convene the full assembly, where tho veto does not apply, to deal promptly with pressing Issues. Gromyko said this plan violated the U. N. charter and was an at- tempt by the U. s. to circumvent the security council, where Russia has cast 20 vetoes. Austin replied quickly that "the and three baggage cars of an Omaha railway passenger train were derailed Saturday night at St. Paul killing the engineer, Peter McTlo, St. Paul, and injuring two other trainmen. McTlc was buried under several tons of coal as the engine rolled into a ditch. More than 100 passengers aboard- the train were shaken up In the derailment. (A.P.

A pokesman for the sponsors said Hoover appeared against the advice 3f his physician. Grim Food Year "Due to the failure of agricultural ecovery in Europe and Asia, to- jcther with, devastating droughts a other parts of. the. world includ- ng the American corn crop the icxt 12 months will be a grim ood Hoover said. A "disastrous decrease' 'of 00 tons of coarse grains was pre- icted by Hoover. This, he said, ?ould be partly by a 00 increase in bread nd rye. Hoover who had toured Europe earlier this year to survey the food situation, at the request of Presi- dent Truman, said that his outline I of world food prospects did not in- 'elude Russia. But he added: "Rus- sia has had some, crop improvement. We hope it is enough to supply the satellite states." Bread Grains as Feed The situation, Hoover said, calls for these steps: 1. American farmers "must resist the natural tendency" to feed bread grains to animals at a time when coarse grains are scarce. "In this world emergency we must give the preference to human beings." he said. 2. "Unnecessary human consump- tion and waste of food" must be stopped. Hoover ndded that "sucht measures, in order to secure the best results, must be largely voluntary. 3. The world deficit can be met 'only if we have full cooperation from the other surplus-producing countries and drastic control of dis- tribution and elimination of black markets in the deficit countries." 4. Price Increases which he said could "be very largely ascribed to over-exports of food" have compli- cated the situation. "The remedies 'or price increases lie in handling of exports with an eye to keeping down, in the stoppage of speculation and hoarding and, ubovc all. In decreasing unnecessary con- comption and Hoover said.

This program, the participating IS nations declared, could enable Eu- rope "to make her full contribution to the welfare of the world." The request was made In H Zd.CQO- word document which will tc dis- patched to Washington after its signing here today by representa- tives of tlie 16 nations which map- ped their economic -wants in Rus- sian-boycotted conferences held here for 70 days. Only a summary was made public today: the text is scheduled for publication next week- end, Summary Released "The American people, through their government and their Con- gress, will consider this program and determine whether the means can be found of supplying the summary said. "If noth- ing is done, a catastrophe will de- velop as stocks become exhausted." The report outlined a four-point self-help program "aimed at put- ting Europe on its feet by the end of 1. A strong production effort by each country. 2. The creation of internal financial stability. 3. Ma x i m u m cooperation among the 16 countries. 4. A solution of their trading deficit with, the American con- tinent, particularly by exports. As part of the production effort, the conference envisaged: 1. Grain production on- a prewar basis, with increases above the pre- war standard in potatoes, sugar, oils and fats. 2. Coal production above the 1938 evel and one-third higher than 1947 tannage. 3. Electrical generating at 166 per icnt, oil refining at 250 per cent and teel at 120 per cent In terms of 1938 porductlon. 4. Inland transport facilities to arry one-fourth more than In 1938. 5. Restoration of prewar merchant fleets by 1951. The 16 nations expressed belief Europe could produce most of tht machinery and other capital equip- ment needed for the expansion pro- gram outlined, and added: "The various countries have un- etaken to use ail their efforts to evelop their national production in rder to achieve these targets."
