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
By Paul Bellamy
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
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
and cash donations to Wash

U. S. 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
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.

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
"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

Soviet Interference
In Iran Continues,
Envoy Reports to U.N.
By th® Associated Preu
NEW YORK. 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
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.
