U. 5., Britain Unify
Policy on Exiled Poles;
Split With Reds Seen
The United States and Great Brit
ain have agreed on a policy of con
tinuing diplomatic relations with the
Polish government-in-exile in Lon
don despite claims of the Polish
Committee of National Liberation
in Lublin to be the "provisional gov
ernment" of Poland, it was learned
authoritatively today.
Inasmuch as Moscow is expected
to recognize the Lublin group, which
it has sponsored, a split among the
“big three” powers on the policy is
The Earl of Halifax, the British
Ambassador, called on Secretary of
State Stettinius shortly before noon
today and later told newspapermen
they had discussed Poland and
Greece, among other problems. He
added, "that no new ground was
broken.” It is understood that the
Anglo-American agreement on Po
lish policy was reached several days
Secretary Stettinius had declared
yesterday that the United States is
continuing to maintain relations
with the Polish government-in-exile.
Lord Halifax said one of the
problems that he discussed with Mr.
Stettinius was that of increasing the
flow of infoimation on current prob
lems between the United States,
Great Britain and Russia.
Asked if the advisory commission
in London might function as a clear
ing house for information, the Am
bassador admitted the possibility but
said there were no concrete plans
toward that end.
Asked if he had anv late infor
mation on the projected meeting
of Foreign Secretaries Anthony
Eden, Stettinius and Molotov, the
Ambassador said he was not aware
of any official plans. Mr. Eden said
in Commons recently that he was
hopeful such a meeting could be
held and added that he thought
conferences \bf this kind would be
useful frequently.
At his press conference today. Mr.
Stettinius was questioned regarding
a New York Times newspaper re
port from Cairo saying that the
American Government had drafted
plans providing for a postwar Aus
tria with vastly enlarged territory-,
including the Bolzano area which
was awarded to Italys after the
World War.
The Secretary answered that the
State Department had been making1
certain territorial studies which
were being revised from time to
time, and that they should not be
considered by any means as final.

Nazis' Newest Trick,
'Fire Balls,' Follow
Or Precede Planes
By the Associated Pres*.
FIGHTER BASE, Fiance. Jan. 2 —
American fighter pilots engaged in
flying night intruder missions over
Germany report the Nazis have
come up with a new "secret weapon”'■
—mysterious "balls of fire" which
race along beside their planes for
miles like will-o’-the-wisps.
Yank pilots have dubbed them
"foo fighters,’’ and at first thought
they might explode, but so far there
is no indication that any planes
have been damaged by them.
Some pilots have expressed belief
that the "foo fighter" was designed
strictly as a psychological weapon.
Intelligence reports seem to indicate
it is radio-controlled from the
ground and can keep pace with
planes flying 300 miles per hour.
Lt. Donald Meiers, Chicago, said
there are three types of "foo
fighters"—red balls of fire that fly
along at wing tip; a vertical row
of three balls of fire which fly in
front of the planes, and a group of
about 15 lights which follow the
plane at a distance, flickering on
and off.
"A ’foo-fighter’ picked me up re
cently at 700 feet and chased me
20 miles down the Rhine Valley," j
Lt. Meiers said. "I turned to star
board and two balls of fire turned
with me. I turned to the port side
and they turned with me. We were
going 260 miles an hour and the
balls were keeping right up with us.
"On another occasion w'hen a foo
fighter’ picked us up. I dove at 360
miles per hour. It kept right off
oqr wing tips for awhile and then,
zoomed up into the sky.
"When I first saw the things off
my wing tips I had the horrible
thought that a German on the!
ground was ready to press a button
and explode them. But they don’t
explode or attack us. They just
seem to follow us like will-o’-the
