Advisers for Progress In Our GermairZone (Mr. Bellamy, editor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer and a past president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors, has just returned from a trip to Ger many. Austria. Italy and England as one of a party of American newspapermen. This is another of a series. of articles on his ob servationss?) By Paul Bellamy CLEVELAND. May 21 (NAN At.— Alongside.the military occupation of Germany by the four victorious powers, there has been created in the United States zone, at least, a parallel set-up of civil governments which I should like to describe. So far as we know, the American zone of occupation, whose popula tion is 18,000,000, is far ahead of the zones occupied by our Allies in at tempting to restore civil govern ment to the Germans themselves. The Russians act as if they never want to. The French have not declared themselves, and the British have not got around to it yet. The American zone of occupation has been divided into three parts, each called Land. They are Land Bavaria. Land Wurtemberg-Baden1 andLandGreaterHes.se. The latter, two are new political subdivisions of Germany. Anti-Nazis Unimpressive. The marriage of Wurtemberg and Baden is something new, brought about by the necessity of dividing • Germany into four parts, and the Baden people are not so sure they like the Wurtembergers and vice versa. Greater Hesse was frankly the composite of a number of por tions of Germany, each of which belonged to a different division, but the Hesse experiment seems to be working out more smoothly, if any thing, than the Wurtemberg-Baden one, so far as reception by the Ger mans themselves is concerned. Each of the three divisions of our tone has a minister president and a cabinet of its own. all composed of carefully screened non-Nazis, but most of these are old and tired. One has to respect them for the hopeless fight they made against the Nazis, but their powers to gov ern do not seem very impressive. Over the three sub-divisions is the Laenderrat—the Council of the Lands—which meets at Stuttgart under direction and control of U. S. authorities. It co-ordinates all mat ters of German administration af fecting mow than one Land in the TJ. S. zone. It is designed to fill the need resulting from the lack of a central administration and to re store German responsibility and self-government. The Burgermeis ter of Bremen, the U. S. seaport en clave, sits with the ministers presi dent of Bavaria, Wurtemberg Baden and Greater Hesse, but takes part only when the interests of his area are concerned. Aided by U. S. Experts. The Laenderrat has set up seven committees which process all mat ters that finally go before the body itself for settlement. That is. these committees deal with evacuation and resettlement, food and agri culture. transportation, economics, industry, and export and import. The military arm of the United States in our zone of occupation has been ably assisted in setting up the new' civil governments in Germany by a group of remarkable political experts who come mostly from the colleges of the United States. Dr. James K. Pollock, senior repre sentative of the deputy military government, who sits with the Laenderrat in Stuttgart, is an ex ample. Dr. Pollock was professor of political science and chairman of the division of social sciences at the University of Michigan, having taught previously at Harvard. Ohio State and Stanford. He made a major part of his work the study of German since 1933. Another who turned out to be exceedingly valuable as a political adviser to the military government is Dr. Walter Dorn, formerly of Ohio „ State University and later of Co lumbia. where he was professor of modem European history. He had studied deeply the Prussian bure aucracy find written a book about it. He had spent many years In Germany prior to the war and speaks German very well. Gen. Clay s Adviser. Dr. Dorn is a man of infinite tact and understanding and has been re tained by Gen. Lucius D. Clay as a special political adviser, in which capacity he travels over the whole German military occupied zone, re porting back to the deputy adminis tration what he has seen. Men of the caliber of Dr. Pollock and Dr. Dorn, who are willing to serve in the thankless job of re constituting German civil govern ment. are hard to find. It has been surely due to the wise advice of such counselors as tftese men that civil government in our zone in Germany has been so well develop ed. In addition to political advisers. America has furnished the Army in Germany with equally able financial and economic advisers, and the Army has avidly accepted their serv ices.

Pay Increases Since '41 Nearly Equal Living Cost Rise By Joseph Young The average Government employe has received wage raises during the past year to nearly make up for the cost of living Increases since Janu ary 1, 1941, but the pay boosts still fall short of wage increases given workers in private industry during the same period. Federal employes have been voted two pay raises during the last year. For the first time since 1923, Con gress voted classification employes a general raise of 15.9 per cent last July. This increase was based on a graduated scale. Then last week Congress passed a Federal pay bill providing a flat 14 per cent wage increase, with a $250 guarantee to woikers earning less than $1,900 a year. President Truman is expected to sign the measure any day now. The total percentage raise of the two pay bills comes to 32.4 per cent, which almost, but not quite, mea sures up to the estimated 34 per cent rise in the cost of living since January 1, 1941, As a matter of fact Federal employes in the lowest Income brackets got raises exceed ing the cost of living increase, but these workers earned $1,560 a year or less before last July and consti tute only 30 per cent of the total Federal personnel. Private Industry Put at 41%. Although the Labor Department has no definite figures on the rise of wages in private industry since Jan uary 1, 1941, they estimate it aver ages more than 40 per cent. During House hearings on the Federal pay bill, Stabilization Director Chester Bowles said salaried employes In private industry received increases of 34.7 per cent between January. 1941, and December, 1944. Since V-J day alone, officials estimate that wage increases granted in various industries have ranged from 7 to 20 per cent. Of course, pay Increases in private industry did not all come from flat raises. Upgrading and various types of promotions were ways of getting around the Little Steel formula on basic pay. Federal employes also received increases in salaries due to within-grade promotions, but these raises were negligible compared to the use to which it was put in pri vate industry. On the other hand, Federal em ployes in the lower brackets—and 73 per cent of all Government work ers earn *2,320 or less under the existing pay scale—probably earn greater salaries than employes do ing comparable work in private industry. Middle, Top Brackets Hit. It is the Federal employe in the middle or top-bracket grade who hasn’t received a percentage boost anywhere commensurate with the cost of living increase or the upward trend of salaries in private industry For one thing, last July's raise was on a graduated scale, with employes in the lower brackets receiving the greater percentage of the raise. And the $10,000 Federal wage ceil ing wasn’t lifted this time, despite the urging of the administration, with the result that topflight of ficials earning between $9,000 and $10,000 couldn’t take advantage of the 14 per cent raise. The total percentage raise of the two pay bills in terms of particular salary scales range from the 50 per cent increase granted custodial em ployes who have had their salaries advanced from $780 to $1,170 a year, to the 11.1 per cent increase for $9,000 a year officials. The 73 per cent of Federal work ers who earned $2,320 or less re ceived percentage raises from the two bills totalling 50 per cent at the $780 level to 32.2 per cent at the $2,320 grade. U. S.

Chinese Nationalists Press New Attacks in Manchuria Civil War By Associated Press Chinese government forces pushed on to new attacks in the Manchurian civil war today, while a Nanking spokesman called for peace and asked for sympathy and understanding for the Chinese from Russia and the United States. The government's Central News Agency said the new 1st Army, victorious at Szepingkai after being stalled for 32 days by Communist forces, drove northward with five spearheads. Its new objective was a Communist troop concentration at Kungchuling. 40 miles north of Szepingkai on the Mukden-Chang chun railway. Other 1st Army troops, mean while, attacked Communist forces in the mountainous area northwest of Szepingkai. In Nanking. Dr. Sun Fo. chair man of the Government Legislative Council, asserted that China "will have to build herself up economic ally and politically" with the ending of civil strife as the vital step. Dr. Sun, in an interview, pictured China as the possible bridge of understanding between the United States and Russia and bv indirec tion sought co-operation in Chinese rehabilitation from both powers. Correspondents of the govern ment-controlled Chinese press hailed the occupation of SzejSlngkai yes terday as a "great victory." The field correspondent for Ta Kung Pao described the 32-dav stalemate which preceded the victory as the "greatest battle" of the civil war. involving 150.000 men on each side. The government troops were ex pected to meet with considerable more determined Communist troops at. Kungchuling. In Nanking, Dr. Sun told corre spondents: "Politically, we are committed to adopt the Western system. We are turning away from the one-party system which is Russia's. "But economically, we have to learn more from the Soviet system of great state enterprises instead of acquiring monopolistic industrial capital, which would simply turn the clock backward, as it did in Japan." He is the son of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, founder of the Chinese republic. Meanwhile, in Nanking. Gen. George C. Marshall s unprecedented scolding of the Chinese for inflam matory propaganda drew a plea for peace from a Kuomintang * govern ment party* organ and a Commu nist wish that the party had news papers in which to propagandize for peace. Gen. Marshall yesterday issued a statement that "propaganda cam paigns by both sides naturally in flame feelings and increase the pos sibility of • • • conflagration. This reckless propaganda of hate and suspicion • • • can lead to • * • dis aster for the people of China." Today, he received China's new minister of information. Peng Hsueh-pei. and then Communist Leader Chou En-lai as he continued his efforts to end the nation's civil strife. The Ministry of Information re leased a statement to the Govern ment-controlled Central News Ag ency praising Gen. Marshall's state ment. then recalled it without ex planation. However, Ta Kung Pao took a softer tone than usual toward the Communists and pleaded for peace rather than war. It urged the government to take careful mea sures unless it was sure of quick victory.

May 21.—Hopes of effecting an early settlement of the vexing problem of Iran, sched uled lor consideration by the United Nations Security Council tomorrow, faded today after a new Iranian charge that •'Soviet interference in the internal affairs of Iran has not ceased.'1 Furthermore, Hussein Ala. Iranian Ambassador, informed thp Council in a report last night, "if the reports of armed conflict in this strategical ly critical area are true, obviously the danger to the international peace and security is both serious iand imminent.” He added, however, that he had received no “authentic information with respect to the reported clashes'’ between central government troops and forces of the self-proclaimed autonomous government of Azer baijan Province in Northern Iran. Mr. Ala said his government had been unable to investigate reports that 'Soviet soldiers have been left in Azerbaijan in civilian clothes and that military equipment has been placed at the disposal'’ of the separatist government of Azer baijan. The Ambassador, responding to a Council request for information as to the status of Russian army with drawals as of May 20, informed the delegates that his government had been unable to establish that “all of the Soviet troops have been withdrawn from the whole of Iran. "Such information as is available to me * * • is to the effect that as a consequence of the interferences previously complained of. the Iranian government is still being prevented from exercising any effective au thority in the Province of Azerbaijan and that Soviet interference in the i internal affairs of Iran has not ceased.” Mr. Ala declared. His report killed any hopes that the delegates might have had for dropping the whole troublesome Iranian problem from their agenda when the Council meets at 11 a.m. tomorrow, since the Council had agreed previously to retain jurisdic tion of the matter until definite in formation as to Red Army with draws was available. Man Held in Court Cell Awaiting Hearing Dies Troy L. Gilmore. 52. of the 900 block I street N.W. was pronounced dead in Gallinger Hospital late yes terday after being removed there from the cellblock in Municipal Court, where he became ill while awaiting disposition of an intoxi cation charge. Police said death apparently was due to natural causes and that Gil more has no known relatives. He was arrested yesterday morning. Watchman Charged After 'Robbery' Loof Is Found in Cafe Police today charged Prudence Ford, 32. colored, night watchman at Michel's Restaurant, 1020 Ver mont avenue N.W., with grand lar ceny, after an accidentally slammed door revealed more than $2,000 hid den in the restaurant basement which Ford earlier was said to have told police was stolen from the res taurant safe after two •'bandits'* slugged him. Until the money fell to the floor from its hiding place when a busboy slammed the door, police said they conducted their investigation on the basis of Ford's earlier story. Suspecting a hoax. Second Pre cinct Detectives William McEwen and William J. Webb said they went to the Ford home, 1733 Willard street N.W.. at 2 pm. yesterday and arrested the watchman for investi gation. A signed confession was obtained from the watchman last night, the detectives said, in which he ad mitted robbing the safe when he found the door ajar early yester day. Police said a cut on Ford s head lent credence to his earlier storv. but added that the watchman admitted he suffered the cut in a fall. Ford pleaded guilty on arraign ment today before United States Commissioner Needham C. Turnage and was ordered held for the grand jury in $2,500 bond. He was not represented by counsel. Police said Ford was beaten and tied by twro w’hite men in a slugging - robbery at the restaurant last month. Ford's first story yesterday sent police in search of two w'hlte men who were arrested in connection with last month's theft. District Jail records, however, revealed that one of the suspects is still in custody there. Ford told investigators who responded to the clanging burglar alarm in the cafe yesterday that two white men overcame him, robbed the safe and fled through the back door. Investigation, however. Indicated that the window screens had been cut from inside the restaurant, police said In the confession, police said Ford stated he rifled the safe, hid the money in a wall crevice and lay down after opening the rear door to set off the burglar alarm. The slammed door showered $2,020 to the basement floor, police said, and $500 was found in Ford s room.
