He declared, moreover, that he would refuse to apply economic sanctions to Spain. Mr. Bevin’s stand was taken in an appearance before the dominant Labor party's annual conference. He won an overw'helming confer ence indorsement of his policies. In a fighting mood and speaking extemporaneously, the rotund for eign secretary won adoption of a party conference resolution indors ing his administration of foreign affairs. Five other resolutions, all critical, w»ere withdrawn or defeated. Question of Splitting Europe. The issue of the Council of For eign Ministers in Paris next week, he said will be whether Europe is to be split into eastern and western blocs. “I am not going to be a party to any design in strategy * * * against Russia.” Mr. Bevin went on. “Neither will we give one moment’s consideration to expansion. But this division of Europe, this awful business of drawing a line from Stettin (Germany* to Albania and behind that this solidified position— if that happens, which God forbid, you will have two camps in Europe and that will be the road to an other struggle.” He called for conclusion of a peace treaty with Austria and urged the clearance of occupation troops from the Danube basin. Declaring he had been asked whether he would sign a separate peace treaty, Mr. Bevin said: "I don’t know what steps we may take to get these treaties, but no one nation is going to keep me in a state of war forever with other countries.” Won’t Send More Troops. On Palestine he said: “If we put 100,000 Jews in Pales tine tomorrow, I would have to put another division of British troops there. I am not prepared to do it.” “The Jews asked, as I understand it, that in Palestine they should have not merely a home but a Palestinian state so that their voices could be heard in the chancellories of the world. ’ “That is what I will strive to do. but it is going to take patience and work in order to accomplish it,” Mr. Bevin declared. “I must say to the Jews and Arabs: Please put your guns away. Don’t blow up the British Tommy who is quite innocent in this busi ness. You are creating another phase of the anti-Semitic feeling in the British Army. “I believe that if both sides did disarm, peace and development would be much easier.” Colonial Office Problem. Mr. Bevin said Palestine “is a ter rific problem, really it is a Colonial Office problem, but I recognize that you cannot any longer leave it as a colonial problem. It is interna tional.” “The agitation in the United States and particularly in New York for 100,000 Jews to be put into Pales tine—and I do not want the Amer icans to misunderstand me—is be cause they do not want too many of them in New York,” Mr. Bevin continued. The Foreign Secretary said he was “extremely grateful to the United States for taking part in the Pales tine Commission.” The convention of the Labor party, now in control of the British government, had before it a resolu tion calling for repeal of the 1939 white paper limiting Jewish immi gration to Palestine. Minister of State Philip Noel Bnker spoke before Mr. Bevin and said British foreign policy is dedi cated to the belief “that we can make a world without war” and that it must be done “in the next 10 years.” (See BEVIN, Page A^6~* Major League Games AMERICAN LEAGUE At Boston— Cleveland 210 0 — Boston_ 000 0 — Batteries—Feller and Bayes; Barby and H.

A Jet Pilots Land Here for Lunch After Breakfast in California Flight Requires 5 Hours, 39 Minutes; Group Plans Dinner on Coast Tonight Three pilots.of Army jet planes who breakfasted in California arrived in Washington for lunch this afternoon, 5 hours and 39 minutes after taking off from the West Coast. They plan to fly back for a California dinner after a luncheon with the Touch down Club here. The planes took off from March Field, Calif., at 4:27 a.m. and spent 34 minutes at Tinker Field, Okla homa City, where they refueled. They arrived over Andrews Field at 12:59 p.m. and spent seven minutes circling and stunting over the field The unofficial elapsed time is fig ured to 1:06 p.m. when the first plane landed, followed by the others. There was no attempt to make a new West-East record, as indi cated by the time spent cavorting over the field. Last December 14. a Douglas X-B42, nicknamed the Mixmaster, set a record of 5 hours and 17 minutes in a flight from Long Beach to Washington. The return flight, incidentally, Js expected to shatter, unofficially, the record for East-West transcontinen tal flights. If weather is good, the three P-80 Shooting Stars hope to make the trip from Andrews Field; back to their starting point at March! Field, Calif., in less than seven hours.

By the Associated Pres* ROME, June 12.—Troops armed with cannon and light machine guns took positions on the streets of tense Naples today ready for expected trouble when republicans demonstrate to de mand the cabinet force the reluctant King Umberto II from his throne. The Monarchists had their day yesterday in Naples, one of the strongholds of the House of Savoy which voters rejected in a plebiscite early this month, and in Taranto. For hours, a surging throng of 10,000 to 20,000 Monarchists besieged Com munist headquarters in Naples with gasoline bombs and gun fire in bat tles which raged over most of the city and left seven dead and more than 50 wounded. utornale d Italia reported from Taranto that Monarchists and Re publicans clashed yesterday in that southern port city and that 28 were ! wounded and 15 arrested, i The cabinet was unable to per suade Umberto to leave his throne. His Queen and children are in Por tugal and his bags were packed when the Supreme Court on Monday ruled that while the republic had been voted, judgment must still be given on petitions charging electorial fraud. Soldiers in groups of four or five were stationed on every street in Naples. Truck loads of troops with machineguns were placed in every fourth of fifth street as a mobile force. The Republican-supported trade unionists scheduled demonstrations before the royal palace in Naples Six armored cars with 37 millimeter cannon were drawn up before the palace, and a like number were placed before the American Red Cross club. Ten of the wounded at Taranto, ; once an Italian naval base and i one of the first Italian cities to fall to the Allies in the war, were reported in grave condition. Some were policemen. May Convoke Assembly. Meanwhile, the Italian cabinet worked on a proposal to convoke ! immediately the newly elected Con I stituent Assembly. The Assembly—which is em powered to draft a new constitu I tion for Italy—is not scheduled to meet until June 24, but the cabinet, unable to agree after five meetings jin 30 hours whether the country is a republic or a monarchy, con sidered convening it at once to work on the problem. Cabinet members regarded as very serious in their implications Naples’ iSee ITALY, Page A-2.) Security Tax Increase Of 0.5% on January 1 Voted by Committee Plan Would Be in Force For 5 Years, Blocking Scheduled Rise to 2.5% By th« Associated Press The House Ways and Means Committee today voted to in crease the social security tax against employes’ pay and em ployers’ payrolls from 1 per cent to 1.5 per cent, effective Janu ary 1. If the House and Senate follow the committee's recommendation, the annual collection for social security insurance will be increased from the present $1,300,000,000 to $2,000,000, 000. The committee stipulated that the tax shall be 1.5 against employes’ pay and employers’ payroll for a five-year period beginning next January. Under the original Social Security Act, the tax will advance to 2.5 per cent against employe pay and em ployer payrolls next January, unless Congress takes some action before that time. Heretofore, Congress annually has voted to freeze the security tax at 1 per cent each against employe and employer, preventing the automatic increases provided in the original act. Today's action came at the ter mination of long public hearings. The committee has made a broad restudy of the social security pro gram, receiving suggestions for its improvement or correction. Dairy Product Prices Reduced in Russia By the Associated Press MOSCOW, June 12.—Prices of milk, cream and cottage cheese were reduced 25 to 30 per cent today at Russian commercial food stores where supplies are sold in unra tioned quantities but at high prices. Sour cream was reduced 45 per cent. It was the second price cut in these stores this year. Flour, meat, sugar and other prices were trimmed on February 26. Late Bulletins Bridges Attacks Black Senator Bridges, Republi can, of New Hampshire, citing a speech by Justice Hugo Black before a gathering of the Political Action Commit tee, said today a Supreme Court justice should leave the bench if he “desires to make political speeches.” OP A Amendment Killed The Senate today rejected a sweeping amendment to the OPA bill which Senator Taft said “makes it very difficult to have any price control at all.” The amendment would have let producers, processors and distributors—including retail ers—set their own prices if the price administrator failed to give them ceilings which allowed them prewar discounts and markups.

Carlton, former Army corporal, has been arrested by cus toms agents at Kilgore, Tex., for in vestigation *in connection with the theft of the Hessian crown jewels from Kronberg Castle, near Frank furt, Germany, the War Depart ment announced today. He is the fourth and last principal in the sensational $1,500,000 jewel theft to be taken into custody. A War Department Spokesman said, however, that Carlton’s participation in the theft was "believed to be minor.” Carlton was placed in detention by customs agents yesterday in Kil gore, believed to be his home. He : was discharged from the Army some months ago. “He is the technician, fifth grade, who has been mentioned in con nection with the theft from Kron berg Castle,” the spokesman said in identifying the former soldier. Earlier reports given at the time of the arrest of Col. Jack W. Durant and his WAC bride, Capt. Kathleen Nash Durant, mentioned that a corporal had unearthed the treasure in the cellar of the castle. He is (supposed to have turned the jewels over to Capt. Nash, who was then mess sergeant at the castle. The third alleged accomplice. Maj. i David S. Watson is being held by Army authorities in Frankfurt. Col. Durant and his wife are awaiting Army decision as to whether they will be returned to the American zone in Germany for court martial.

Taylor, a spokesman for the ship operators in the threatened maritime strike, re ported today that the unions in volved have rejected a new compromise offer on the work week for seamen. Adding to the ominous note, Joseph Curran, president of the CIO National Maritime Union, said “a long and bitter strike” will begin Friday midnight, as scheduled, un less the seamen's work-week is cut or their pay increased. Despite, the tenor of these state ments Federal labor officials gen erally were optimistic over the pro spects for heading off the strike. Both Mr. Taylor and Mr. Curran appeared before a House labor sub committee. Charges Lack of Sincerity. Mr. Taylor, chairman of the negotiating committee for the Atlantic and Gulf coast shippers, said the operators proposed to give the seamen a day off with pay for each week worked at sea. "Yet this new offer was turned down by the NMU,” Mr. Taylor tes tified. “It is thus quite apparent that the union's plea that the present work week (of 56 hours generally) is 'inhumanly’ long and should be shortened lacks sincerity,” he con tinued. "The union is perfectly willing for its men to continue working these hours if they receive extra compensation.” would Accept Arbitration. Mr. Taylor added that “perhaps Uncle Sam may be able to afford these new costs (proposed by the union) but private industry finds them prohibitive." He also declared that tfie oper ators still are willing to submit the entire controversy to arbitration but the unions won't agree. Mr. Curran was critical of both President Truman and Navy officers for statements that the Navy would run the ships if the maritime work ers refuse to do so. Says Stand Was Not Helpful. “The President's position was not helpful" to negotiations, Mr. Curran said. He made a similar reference to Navy officials. The NMU chief also said the sea men were not hopeful of getting any better settlement in the controversy from the Government than from the ship operators. Mr. Curran said repeatedly that all the maritime workers want Is "the same consideration as any other citizen" in wages and hours matters. He said that at present seamen are exempted from Federal wage and hour provisions. He also spoke out bitterly against what he called a lack of protection for maritime workers during the war. ‘‘GI Bill” for Seamen Planned. He said that such workers who were injured received none of the benefits accorded members of the armed forces. At this point, Representative Buck, Republican, of New York in terposed to say that the House Mer chant Marine Committee will ap prove soon a ’’GI bill or rights for maritime workers.” Mr. Curran commented that "we have been working for this bill for years and I hope you are right.” Although Government concili ators, who haver worked day and night on the dispute, were tight lipped, there were definite hopeful signs the walkout could be averted Behind the optimism, apparently, was the fact that a plan for paying cash bonuses to seamen for their long work week had been received with some favor. New Conference Today. Labor Department mediators met with union representatives and ship operators separately into last night and resumed hearings today aftei the appearance of Mr. Taylor anc Mr. Curran on Capitol Hill', The chief stumbling block to set tlement still was the demand of the seagoing unions for a reduction tc 44 hours of their 56-hour work week at sea. It was understood that the Govern ment plan received with some favot called for continuation of the seven day, 56-hour week at sea, but pro vided for payment of an extra day’s wages for each week. That would b) equivalent to working the seventt day each week at double the regulai rate. While officials were hopeful of e break, spokesmen for the Commute) S for Maritime Unity, the CIO ; dominated group which has callec i the strike, said arrangements for thi [stoppage had gone so far it woulc [ be difficult to head it off now ever if a settlement is reached.

New Georgia Klan Facing Fight To Prove It's Not the Old KKK (First of a Series.) • By Francis P. Douglas Star Staff Correspondent ATLANTA, June 12.—Dr. Sam uel Green, the 56-year-old grand dragon of the Ku Klux Klan in Georgia, is faced with a fight to maintain that his organization, the Association of Georgia Klans. is not affiliated with the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Inc., the charter of which Gov. Ellis Ar nall has ordered revoked. Dr. Green asserts his organization has no connection with the old Klan, but he said frankly in an interview it is carrying on the ideas of the chartered order, which ostensibly went out of business in the spring of 1944. “Men in Georgia wanted to go forward,” Dr Green said. ‘They got together in Georgia to carry out the same purposes. We added death benefits, charity and be nevolences. We use practically the same laws, adopting the Klan laws that apply to this realm." A ‘realm” in klanversation means state. But Dr. Green asserts there *s no connection with the old organiza tion and that the fraternal and financial obligations of the mem bers of the chartered order were ! absolved when that body suspended. 1 The grand dragon is an earnest little man, with a small square gray mustache under his nose and with dark hair flecked with gray. He has been klansman for 22 years, he said, and held every office except the top one of imperial wizard. He says the klan is his pleasure, and "I believe in it.” Dr. Green, an obstetrician, was interviewed in his four-room office suite in Atlanta's downtown Peters Building. On one wall of the wait ing room hang framed certificates of his five-years service as examin ing physician of Atlantia's Selective Service Board No. 2, and a certificate of the award of the Selective Serv ice Medal. The medal itself is dis played on a table on which there is also .what appears to be a Klan insignia. Two of the smaller inner offices are for patients, and the third ap parently is where Klan records.and regalia are kept. Dr. Green sat at a roll top desk in one of the inner offices which was furnished with equipment apparently gathered dur ing his 35 years of practice. In the center of the small room was a high, adjustable chair and in the corner a sink let into a slab of dark stone.

Draja Mihailovich tes tified in his trial for his life today that a British mission to Yugoslavia instructed him to destroy the Partisan forces of Marshal Tito. The Chetnik leader, accused of treason and collaboration with the Germans was on trial before a three man court established by the regime which Marshal Tito now heads as premier. Marshal Tito returned on the opening day of the trial from two weeks of conferences in Moscow. Gen. Mihailovich, on the stand for the second day, described the relations of his underground troops with the Germans during the oc cupation of Yugoslavia in 1943 as "not co-operation but haphazard mutual battle.” Gen. Mihailovich asked for a secret session of the court to bring out testimony on directives he said he received from a British liaison mis sion attached to his headquarters.

Clark Twice Protests Firing by Red Planes By the Associated Press VIENNA. June 12.—Gen. Mark W. Clark, American member of the Al lied Control Council for Austria, protested twice today to the Russian command against target, practice which Russian fighter planes held over the American airfield at Tulin, during which a burst was fired at a red flag atop the American radio tower. Col. Gen. Josef Kurusov, com manding Russian officer in Vienna, during the absence of Marshal Ivan S. Konev, said he had no knowledge of the incident. Gen. Kurusov promised an immediate investiga tion. The first target practice over the field was held at 8:15 a.m. One Rus sian fighter towed a target sleeve across thv airfield, which is on the outskirts of Vienna, and four fight ers fired two or three bursts each. One of the four fighters dived down over the radio tower, American officers said, and fired a burst at the red flag atop the antennae. American soldiers in a nearby shack watched this. The firing lasted about two minutes. Three hours later eight more fighters appeared, with a ninth plane towing a sleeve. Two bursts were heard, the firing lasting about one minute. This also occurred directly over the field. No damage was re ported from either incident. No American planes were in th# air at the time.
