Big Three Draw Closer Together;
British Break Ruhr Monopoly;
New Work Stoppages Looming

Meeting of Minds
With the declaration that "prog
ress, and great progress, has been
made,” the foreign ministers of
U. S., Britain and Russia conclud
ed their quarterly conference in
Moscow, and observers looked to a
smoother relation between the ma
jor powers for re-establishment of
order out of the dislocations in Eu
rope and Asia.
Though the agreement between
Messrs. Byrnes, Bevin and Molotov
to work for control of atomic en
ergy and eliminate it as a war
weapon commanded the most pop
ular attention, political understand
ings reached were equally impor
tant in their assurance of settling
populations, permitting organization
of comprehensive governments and
spurring the resumption of trade.
One of the principal items of ac
cord involved agreement on proce
dure for drafting the European
peace treaties with Axis satellites,
the Big Three deciding to let
France in on discussions over Italy
and consulting all of the United Na
tions on pacts covering Italy, Bul
garia, Romania. Hungary and Fin
In agreement on Europe, the Big
Three also moved to closer under
standing on Asia, where they decid
ed upon the establishment of a four
nation control commission for Ja
pan to implement directives formu
lated by the far eastern advisory
council with unanimous approval of
the member countries.
British Take Mines
An integral part of Germany's
economy. 130 Ruhr coal mines
owned by 46 companies were taken
over by the British occupation au
thorities in a move to break up the
country's war potential and also con
tribute to the decentralization of the
Reich’s industry.
In announcing the expropriation
of the properties without compen
sation to the owners, the British de
clared that the coal mines were
controlled by the same monopolistic
interests which dominated the iron,
steel and chemical industries and
exercised a decisive influence on the
character of prewar German econ
In taking over the mines, the Brit
ish announced that the financial in
terests of France, Belgium, Holland
and Luxembourg in the properties
would be safeguarded.
Fix Reparations
Though U. S. reparations from
westem Germany were set at 23 ner
cent of the total to be shared by 21
countries, this country’s actual
amount may fall short of the agreed
figure since it waived rights to en
emy ships and industrial equipment
because of small losses in these
In addition to such capital goods
as plants, machinery, etc., German
foreign assets, current stocks and
items from production have been de
clared available for payments, and
the U. S. is expected to draw pri
marily from these sources.
Besides the U. S., Britain will also
receive 28 per cent of reparations,
with France allotted 16 per cent. Oth
er recipients include Yugoslavia, the
Netherlands, Canada, Czechoslovak
ia, Belgium, Greece, India, Norway,
Australia, South Africa, New Zea
land, Denmark, Luxembourg, Egypt
and Albania.
Under the Potsdam agreement,
Russia was to obtain its principal
reparations from eastern Germany,
and German assets in Bulgaria, Fin
land, Hungary, Romania and east
ern Austria.
Trade Move
In a move designed to bring the
purchasing power of the franc in
line with foreign currencies, France
devalued its monetary unit to 119 *o
♦he American dollar and 480 to the
British pound.
As a result of the new arrange
ment, French foreign trade is ex
pected to pick up, since the rise in
prices due to decreased production
will be offset by giving up more
francs to the dollar or pound. In
certain of its colonies where there
has been no inflationary spiral, the
French maintained the old value of
the local franc.
Because of the dislocation of in
dustry and commerce, France’s for
eign trade since liberation has been
mostly of the token variety to keep
overseas channels open. Some per

With the devaluafton of the franc,

employment ot musicians through
use of transcriptions, Petrillo de
clared he drew up his latest ulti
matum to preserve the jobs of
Americans. Said he:
. . The government—everybody
—protects themselves against cheap
labor. Why the — should musicians
be suckers? The watchmakers’
union muscled the state department
into telling the Swiss to stop sending
(watches) into the country. We’re
trying to keep out foreign musicians
in person or on the air.”
New Strikes Loom
With 175,000 workers already idle
by the General Motors strike in the
automobile industry and the United
Steel workers also threatening to
walk out, the troubled labor situa
tion took another serious turn with
the CIO electrical union pondering
a work stoppage in General Elec
tric, Westinghouse and General Mo
tors plants.
As in the case of the auto and
steel disputes, the strife in the elec
trical industry centered around the
union’s move for maintenance of
high wartime take-home pay. its de
mands equalling the steel workers’
bid for a $2 a day wage increase
and comparing with the auto work
ers’ goal of a 30 per cent boost.
Active in the automobile dispute
in an effort to bring the contesting
parties together, government of
ficials also took an aggressive hand
in the electrical strife, with Edgar
L. Warren, U. S. conciliation serv
ice director, conferring with both
company and union bigwigs in an
attempt to iron out differences.
From the depression low of $368
in 1933, per capita income in the
U. S. jumped to $1,117 in 1944, re
flecting the increased wartime eco
nomic activity.
Even before the onset of the war
boom, per capita income showed
a decided increase from the 1933
low, reaching $575 in 1940, still con
siderably under the 1944 top. Where
as such income ranged from $202
in Mississippi to $896 in Delaware
in 1940, it ran from $528 in Missis
sippi to $1,519 in New York in 1944.
In 1940, 16 states topping the na
tional average of $575 included Cali
fornia, Connecticut, Delaware, Illi
nois, Maryland, Massachusetts,
Michigan, Nevada. New Jersey,
New York, Ohio. Oregon, Pennsyl
vania. Rhode Island. Washington
and Wyoming. In 1944, all of these
states except Wyoming exceeded the
national figure. Indiana taking its

More than 50 per cent of the
leading schools and state univer
sities covered in a recent survey
are either conducting frozen food
experiments or planning such
experiments, it was revealed.
Most of the experiments are
directed toward retaining the
fresh flavor of fruits, vegetables,
meats and dairy products with
out losing the vitamin content
and nutritive value of the food. j

Even while 50.000 communist
troops reportedly sought to cut the

Shanghai, Red political leaders at

Chiang Kai-shek’s nationalist forces

Advanced shortly after Gen.
George C. Marshall’s arrival in
China to help untangle the compli
cated political situation there and
promote unification of the country,
the communist proposal was a mod
ification of an earlier demand that
nationalist troops withdraw to posi
tions previously occupied before V-J
Meanwhile, as communist and
nationalist leaders of the political
consultative council sat down to lay
preparations for later discussions of
unity. Red strategists sought to ex
ert pressure on the U. S. to with
draw more support from Chiang’s
faction and enhance their own bar
gaining position in conferences.
Held throughout China, leftist stu
dent rallies called upon Uncle Sam
to let the Chinese settle their own
differences without interference.
Short Supply
Because of both ingredient and la
bor shortages, candy production will
fall short of expected demands dur
ing the first nine months of 1946,
the trade predicted, with the deficit
amounting to 700 million pounds.
While nuts, peanuts, many, fruits,
coconuts, cocoa oil and other oil,
and sugar apparently will remain
in short supply through most of the
year, the anticipated return of work
ers to confectionery plants from
higher paying war industries has
not materialized, though leveling off
of other employment and increased
wages should lead to solution of the
manpower problem.
In addition to prospective higher
labor costs, the trade said, material
costs are also expected to remain
at upward levels because of the
shortage of supplies and the de
clared program of the government
to eliminate subsidies on items en
tering into manufacture of candy.
Straightening of difficulties will be
the signal for extensive plant mod
ernization and expansion, experts
said, with installation of equipment
heading the program.
“O God, thou art my God; early will J
seek Thee”—Chaplain Edwin Royal
Carter Jr. of Richmond, Va., intoned as
soldiers lifted the flag that covered the
casket of Gen. George S. Patton and
held it a few inches above the silver
Rain puttered upon the canvas canopy
covering the burial site at the end of a
long roiv of little white crosses in the
American military cemetery in Luxem
burg, Luxemburg, where 6,000 of the
former G.lj Patton hud led in the his
toric Battle of the Bulge the year be
fore rested in peace. Beside Patton lay
the body of Pvt. John Przywara of De
troit, Mich.
“But the king shall rejoice in God;
everyone that sweareth by Him shall
glory; but the mouth of them that
speak lies shall be stopped,” the chap
lain concluded in reading the fallen war
rior’s favorite 63rd Psalm. With the
recitation of the Lord’s prayer, the
military men bared their heads, then
three rifle volleys echoed through the
hills. As taps sounded softly, all stood
at attention, and distinguished generals
from Russiu, Britain and France held
themselves stiffly in salute until Mrs.
Patton turned to leave.
Most distinctive of the floral pieces
honoring “Old Blood and Guts” was an
evergreen wreath from the men he had
led to victory. It bore the simple and
touching inscription: “To our leader."
Above Average
Though falling below the depart
ment of agriculture's goal, the 1945
pig crop of 86.714,000 slightly sur
passed 1944 production and topped
the 10 year 1934-43 average by over
While the 1945 spring pig crop fell
below 1944, fall production rose to
offset the early year drop, USDA
reported. While large Increases in
the fall crop over 1944 were noted
in the western com belt, small de
creases were recorded in the Atlan
tic states.
With 5,503,000 sows farrowed dur
ing the fall season, the number of
pigs saved per litter totaled 6.38,
compared with 6.34 in 1944 and 6.23
for the 10-year period.
In view of farmers’ intentions to
breed 8,542.000 sows next spring, the
USDA’s goal of 52,000,000 pigs
should be achieved if the number
saved in each litter equals the 10
year average. With heavy 1945 fall
production and the retention of a
large percentage of 1945 spring hogs
on farms for extra feeding, pork sup
plies should be good through the en
suing months.
Despite the fact that the veter
an’s National Service Life Insurance
is probably the greatest bargain in
life insurance today, many dis
charged servicemen are dropping it
and making a big mistake, says Dr.
W. M. Curtiss of Cornell university.
Premium rates are lower than for
mutual and stock companies, and
include a waiver of premiums in
case of disability. Dr. Curtiss said.

Of Their Handiwork
Scene of the Historic Trial 91 Per Cent
Destroyed by Bombings; Case Sets
Precedent for Outlawing War.
AT-.. . mi W i ' si m m on f/ifsir
Back -its Germany, Bauhhage reports
the war crimes trial of 21 top Nazis
with the same vividness with which he
narrated their rise to power in the pre
war years when he was stationed in the
reich. Below is the first of a series of
j articles written from Nuernberg:
1 WNU Service, 1616 Eye Street N. W„
Washington, D. C.
have just left the courtroom where,
as I write, the trial of Germany’s
war criminals is still in progress.
The courtroom is just above me In
this great stone courthouse which
l was almost untouched by the bomb
j tng which reduced this most beauti
| ful and famous city to the point
that it was declared “91 per cent
dead” by the experts who followed
the occupation by American troops
on April 20, 1945.
I am writing in the press room
with reporters from more than a
dozen nations about me. Most of us
are in uniform, the majority being
the uniform of the United States
army, which all war correspondents
I in our theater wore. Up until re
cently correspondents had a simu
lated rank of captain. Now we are
simply uniformed civilians operat
ing under military orders.
As I look back over the beginnings
of this trial — the earliest discus
sions before the tribunal itself was
formed — I have the feeling that we
are now looking at something very
real — actual and factual, rather
than theoretical and vague. At the
first gathering, the appalling condi
tion of this city produced the feeling
that all about it and in it must be
chaos too. Nuernberg dates back to
the Uth century and it grew into
such favor and beauty that it bore
the name of Germany’s "treasure
chest.” It was a chest of treasures
of art, song and culture as well as
of the gold that poured into the cof
fers of the merchants. Now it is a
shell, and one of Europe’s best ex
amples of the atmosphere and
charm of the middle ages is gone.
How the nearly 300,000 people who
are said to be living in these ruins
exist it is hard to say. The streets
are cleared, some street cars are
running, some shops are opening, a
city government is operating. But
few houses are livable. In some
cases parts of great office buildings
have been restored. Such cellars as
can be cleared of rubble and roofed
are crowded. A huge air raid shel
ter 280 steps below the ground con
tains a small village in itself.
Milestone in
Man’s Progress
It may be that what is accom
plished will be washed out by sub
sequent stupidities; but I believe,
whether we go forward immediate
ly from this point or not, it will
remain a milestone in man’s effort
to accomplish the outlawry of war,
that it will be a landmark from
which others may set their course
anew. Grotius, father of internation
al law, held to the principle that
aggressive wars were illegal. As
Justice Jackson pointed out, it was
because of the greed for land which
characterized the 18th and 19th cen
turies that this concept was thrust
aside and the world came to accept
the tenet that war in itself was not
illegal. And it seems to me that all
attempts to stop war must be futile
, 80 long as such a concept exists in
international thinking. No one who
i saw the spontaneous reaction to
Justice Jackson’s opening address to
the court could feel that the tre
mendous effort which has gone into
the creation and operation of this
court can be completely lost.
For those who have witnessed
I these proceedings there is a strik
ing symbolism in the rise and fall
of a nation which built a vicious
culture in less than a decade with
one final objective (aggressive war),
which very ideology destroyed it as
no nation has been wrecked before.
Here we see before us in the flesh
(in some cases considerably less
flesh than they were adorned with in
their hey-day), the men who con
ceived and carried out this plan,
which is the distillation of the phi
losophy that might is right, and
which negates the whole basis of the
moral law which has been estab
lished by civilization.
Step by step, with the epitome of
tons of written evidence, with mov- i
ing pictuies, with plans and charts, 1
the growth of the Nazi plan is being
set forth factually, coldly and logical
ly. A new chapter is being written
in every session of the court.
We watched Nazidom unfold be
fore us step by step — first, in the
removal of the physical ability of
the German people to resist: then in
the gradual substitution of Nazi con
cepts for the normal human concepts
produced by the Chfistian philoso
One of the American attorneys
quoted a comment of Dr. Schacht
on the effect of the destruction of
the freedom of the press. Schacht
was quoted as having said, at a time
before he knuckled under to Hitler,
that thousands of Germans had been
killed or imprisoned and not one
word was allowed to be printed
about it. Of what use is martyrdom,
he asked, when it is so concealed
that it has no value as an example
to others? Therein lies one of the
answers to the moral failure of Ger
man resistance.
By the time the Nazis were ready
to fill their concentration camps with
their foreign victims, they had
■learned well the art of handling the
resistance of their own people and
smothering it behind a wall ol aner
silence. As the court pointed out, the
first purpose of the concentration
camps, the persecution, suppression
and propaganda, was “the conquest
of the German masses.”
Each successive step was traced
by the prosecution with the same
meticulous detail, detail that kept
even the prisoners with their ears
glued to the headphones and their
eyes following the speaker or the ex
Accused Make
Brave Show
However, for us in the courtroom,
more impressive than the things that
were done were the men in the pris
oners’ dock who actually did them.
Goering was no longer a name, he
was a person, now leaning back and
grinning, now with his arms on the
edge of the rail of the dock, his
chin resting on them. There was j
Rosenberg, whose task was to'
twist the minds of the people with
his absurd story of a super-race, of
anti-semitism. There he sat, looking
down, his fingers nervously toying
with the telephone cords.
There was Keitel, stiff, cold, proud,
arrogant, all Prussian in his uni
form, stripped though it was of
every badge, ribbon and insignia. He
maintains himself with dignity, but
net for a moment does he forget his
pose. At this writing the psychi
atric analysis of the prisoners has
not been completed and Keitel has
not been reported upon, but I dare
say his I. Q. will be high, though
perhaps not equal to that of Goer
ing, who, surprisingly enough, stands
right at the top. Goering is tacitly
acknowledged as leader by the oth
ers. To the observers he appeared
still the silly poseur, although he
seemed more reasonable appearing
than the fat and grinning mannikin
I saw as he presided over the Reich
stag in his comic opera uniform.
Admiral Doenitz, who looks like a
pale shadow, is also at the top of
the I. Q. list. He remains almost
motionless, only occasionally con
sulting his attorney, who appears in
a German naval uniform as he is on
duty with a part of the fleet used
in mine sweeping and was released
especially for the trial.
Down at the bottom of the list so
far as intelligence goes is Julius
Streicher. Although of far lesser
stature than the rest, this miserable
character is a symbol of the fall
of Nazidom because he is meeting
his fate in the city in which he rose
to power—a fate at which he him
self hinted.
Streicher conducted the last class
in Nazi indoctrination for lawyers
held in this very courtroom where
he had been tried by the pre-Nazi
authorities for various misdemean
ors and perhaps other crimes. As
he concluded his last lecture, he
pointed to the prisoners’ dock and
said: “We used to sit over there, j
Now we are standing up here. But
there may be a day when we are I
sitting down there again.”
He IS sitting down there today. In
a brand new dock, to be sure, but

Congress Should Listen
To Voice of the People
■^JOW that a new year has begun,
it is a good time to take stock
of the Washington scene and the
position in which the government
finds itself. Scanning the record,
that position looks none too good. In
the first place, out of the 21-point
program which President Truman
sent to the congress back in Sep
tember, only three points have been
acted upon by both houses.
These three include the bills to
create a single surplus war prop
erty administrator, about which
more will be written later; to pro
vide for limited tax revision; and
for government reorganization.
Since September, the President in
special messages, has asked for uni
versal military training, for com
pulsory health insurance, and for
fact-finding panels and cooling off
periods to head off industrial strife.
Aside from the three measures
passed, all the other presidential
proposals have either been emascu
lated, held up in committees, or
completely ignored up on Capitol
Hill. The Pr^fsident has been criti
cized in some quarters because he
has not gone to bat with congress
and fought harder for enactment of
his program for reconversion and
postwar economy.
What of War Powers?
And this criticism brings up an
important question which the peo
ple most certainly should consider
if we are to get the most out of our
democratic form of government.
President Truman still holds his al
most unlimited power under the
wartime act. Most folks will agree
that during wartime it was neces
sary that the chief executive exer
cise this dictatorial power reaching
into almost all phases of our na
tional life and national economy.
But now that the fighting is over
and the country is attempting to get
back onto a peacetime basis, the
question is; “Shall the President
continue to exercise that wartime
power?” In other words, the Pres
ident could seize all industry tied
up in strikes and operate them;
he could direct the foreign policy of
the nation; he could fix wages and
set prices; he could do aD these
things and many more under the
power that he now holds, but will
, lose next June 30.
President Truman, however, as
was President Roosevelt before
him, is loathe to use this power be
cause, if he did so, this government
in peacetime would be operating as
a dictator nation and not as a de
mocracy governed by the consent of
the governed. And the very organ
izations and individuals who are
now loud in their criticism of the
President, who claim he is lacking
in program and initiative, would be
the first to raise their voices in pro
test over the first dictatorial act.
