Episcopalians Reduce
Retirement Age of
Presiding Bishop
By Caspar Nannes
$♦©' StoW Carrespondanl
PHILADELPHIA. Sept. 12 —The
Rouse of Bishops today voted, 91
to 21. to reduce the retiring age
of the presiding bishop from 70 to
68 as the third day of the 55th
triennial General Convention of the
Episcopal Church in the United
States of America got under way
on the University of Pennsylvania
campus.
The 68-year age limit originally
was set at the 1940 convention. It
was changed to 70 at the 1943 meet
ing. partly to meet war conditions.
The present retiring bishop, the1
Right Rev. Henry St. George Tucker. I
retires this year and a successor i
will be elected at this convention.
The House of Bishops also voted j
today to allow’ bishops to retain the
right to vote after their retirement
at the age of 72.
Bishops to Be Honored.
Later today the Most Rev. Geoffrey
Francis Fisher. Archbishop of Can
terbury and Bishop Tucker will re
ceive the honorary degree of doctor
of laws from the University of Penn
sylvania.
The degree will be given at a
special convocation in Irvine Audi
torium on the university campus
Dr. George W. McClelland, presi
dent of the university, will preside
and Dr. Thomas S. Gates, former i
president of the university and now
chairman of its board of trustees,
wall confer the degrees.
Former Senator George Wharton
Pepper, a trustee of the university.
won present the Archbishop of Can
terbury for the degree. Samuel F.
Houston, senior trustee of the uni
versity. will present Bishop Tucker. |
Remarriage Issue to Be Studied.
Among other issues to be taken up
today by the House of Bishops wifi :
be the question of remarriage of i
divorced persons. A joint commis
sion was appointed at the 1940 gen- i
eral convention and again at the
1943 meeting to study church sanc
tion to the remarriage of the inno- 11
•ent party in a divorce. i
Last night the Archbishop of Can- i
terbury declared the world missed j
an opportunity a year ago when it
failed to help the churches in Ger- i
many in the work of spiritual and
material reconstruction. He spoke
at a dinner given by the evangelical
societies of the Episcopal Church in p
the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel. p
"But the German churches have
performed a wonderful work de-; s
spite many handicaps in aiding the e
country at this period," the arch
bishop said. The best thing the u
churches in England can do now, he ?
continued, is to bring hope to the a
people of occupied countries
through spiritual and economic aid ®
Says Church Is Tired.
The British church leader told; *
the gathering that more than 5.000 *
former English servicemen now are i
studying for the ministry. He said
those who were unable to finance
their studies would be helped by the. i
church Admitting the Church of '
England is "tired, shabby and over
strained at present, the speaker as-! j
aerted it is also cheerful and brave.'’!!
The Right Rev. Angus Dun, Bishop
of Washington, was appointed to
the Committee on Christian Educa- :
tion of the House of Bishops yes- .

Reds Say MacArthur Uses
Japan as War Springboard
By th» Associated Press
LONDON, Sept. 12—The Soviet
government newspaper Izvestia was
quoted by the Moscow radio yester
day as saying Gen. MacArthur’*
deeds show he prefers to use Japan
as a “springboard for war’’ rather!
than a bulwark for peace.
Commenting on the American
commander s Tokyo statement Sep
tember 2 that 'dread uncertainty ”]
of ideological conflict hangs over
Japan and that Japan can be
“either a powerful bulwark for
peace or a dangerous springboard
for war,” Izvestia said:
"Policy is judged not by word*,
but by deeds and MacArthur s deeds
show that, of the two alternatives,
he prefers the springboard."
The broadcast said the United
States State Department had failed
to refute what it called Gen. Mac
Arthur’s "proclamation of an anti
communist campaign ”
Chevy Chase Boy, 8,
Newest Polio Victim
An 8-year-old boy whose home Is
in the 5500 block of Fairglen road,
Chevy Chase. Md.. i* in Children's
Hospital with infantile paralysis,
the first child victim of the disease
to be reported in the Metropolitan
Area in a week. There have been
four new adult cases in that period.
The boy is the 68th case of polio
in the out-of-town area this year.
There have been 15 cases in the
District, a total of 83 in the Metro
politan Area. There have been five
out-of-town deaths this year and
one in the city. At this time last
year there were 86 victims of the
disease in Washington and 77 out
of the city.
Meanwhile, a drop for the third
straight week in the number of new
cases throughout the country raised
hopes of United States Public Health'
Service Officials that the outbreak
will now rapidly taper off.
"Sometimes the new cases show a
rapid decline,'1 a Health Service of
ficial told a reporter. "The ratf of
decline probably will grow greater."
In the week ended September 7.1
the number of new cases reported
was 1.601. No report was received
from Missouri. Peak of 1.814 cases
was reached in the week ending
August 17.

Clark Starts Talks ;
Here on U. S.-Russian
Differences in Austria
|
By Associated Press
American-Russian differences
which have hamstrung Allied
co-operation in Austria brought
Gen. Mark W. Clark to Wash-;
ington today for a series of con- j
ferences with high Gover|wientj
officials. ;
Gen. Clark's No. 1 headache as
United States member of the Allied
Council in Vienna, he said on his ar
rival at National Airport, is the;
definition of a German asset..!
The reason, he told reporters, Is!
that the Russians in Eastern Austria ■
‘take almost every thing on grounds
that it is a German asset and that
they are entitled to it as repara
tions" under the Potsdam Big Three
agreement.
"The United States and some of
our Allies take a very different view,
and thus we are In trouble, econom
ically. in Austria,” Gen Clark said
"But.” he added, "we'll work It out
somehow, and we 'll stay there until
we ao.
Gen. Clark said he planned to
confer during the next two weeks
with both State and War Depart
ment officials on this and other
problems.
Gen. Clark's statements on the
reparations question echoed those
which State Department officials
have been making privately forj
weeks.
These officials say the “vervj
broad" Soviet Interpretation of the1
Potsdam terms will keep Austria
In economic depression indefinitely
if the Russians follow through on it.
They contend that Soviet authori
ties list as German assets all prop
erty which the Germans acquired
by force and duress in Austria after
Hitler swallowed up that country in
1938.
But in the American. British and
French zones such property is re
turned to the Austrian owners or
the Austrian government.
Gen. Clark will not spend all his
time in Washington seeking a new
jpproach to the German assets ques
tion, however. Possibly even more
critical, officials say, is the matter
of food for Austria.
This reportedly will become acute
once UNRRA’s $117,000,000 program
for Austria comes to an end No
vember 30, unless an agreement
can be worked out for shipping
food from the Soviet zone to the
western zones.
Austria always has been a “food
deficit" country, producing only be
tween 70 to 75 per cent of its needs
in normal times.
And of the total Austrian food
output about 60 per cent comes
from the eastern areas occupied by
the Russians who are not bound
by any pact to share it with the
other zones.
Gen Clark, whose last visit to
Washington was in July. 1945
was accompanied by John G. Er
hardt. United States Minister to
Austria. They were met at the air
port by Ludwig Kleinwaechter, the
Austrian Minister to the United
States: James W. Rlddleberger
chief of the Central European divi
sion of the State Department, and
Ifeveral Army officftfls.'
One who seemed especially fa
vored was Staff Sergt. Wiljiam C
Chaney, Gen. Clark’s colored or
derly, who served wit£ him from
the North African landings until a
year ago. “Well, well, I’m going to
take you back with me,” Gen. Clark
exclaimed, when his former orderly
told of his recent discharge from
Walter Reed General Hospital
where he has been a patient fox
eight months.
Byrnes Urged to Request
Probe of Polish Politics
fty tfta Associated Press
PARIS, Sept. 12.—Representatives
of the Polish-American Congress,
following a conference with Secre
tary of State Byrnes, said today
they requested him to call for a full
review in the Peace Conference of
political conditions in Poland.
The officials were Charles Roz
marek of Chicago, president, and
Frank Januszewski and Ignatius
Murkiewicz, both vice presidents
They said their organization repre
sents 6.000,000 Americans of Polish
descent.
A memorandum, handed to Mr
Byrnes, asserted that "Poland's rep
resentatives at the Peace Conference
are imposters” and declared "Poland,
an ally, is held in captivity by Soviet
Russia. It is not an independent
country, but a puppet stafe."
The delegation will visit displaced
persons camps in the American zone

CPA Criticizes OPA
For Pricing Inaction
On Needed Materials
ly frp*%
Sharp criticism was leveled yes
terday at the Office of Price Ad
ministration by Its fellow-agency,
the Civilian Production Adminis
tration.
A CPA statement said its business
advisory committees for the brass
mill industry had met for about an
hour and then voted to adjourn
until “Government pricing inaction
on urgently needed raw materials"
is ended.
OPA has sole authority for fixing
price ceilings while CPA's powers
are limited to allocation and re
striction of critical and scarce sup
plies.
Earlier CPA publicly recom
mended to OPA that price ceilings
be removed from casein, byproduct
of skim milk and only dairy product /
still under a price ltd. It took this «
action after a casein industry ad
visory committee protested that OPA
ceilings were so low that casein
domestic production has been cur
tailed ana imports blocked.
A third CPA blast at OPA eame
from an industry advisory group
Interested In electrical installation.
It reported the industry In “des
perate plight" with some plants
shutting down because they could
| not get cotton cloth for insulating
| electric wires, cables, motors and
| generators.
CPA said it refused this groups
request for a set-aside order on cot
ton cloth because the problem "is
essentially one of pricing.” Even
;if the cotton goods were earmarked
producers “would be under no com
pulsion to make deliveries at prices
which would entail losses," CPA
added -
An OPA spokesman refused com
ment on the CPA barrage other than
to say that all three price questions
are under consideration.
