Russia Believes U. S.
Is Dangling Dollars Before Many Nations By the Astociotwi Prm MOSCOW, May 17.—The Soviet press and radio have gone into high gear against what is viewed here as a growing United States cam paign against Communism. Repeatedly, editorials and broad casts stress the Russian argument that the Communist and capitalist systems can live side by side in one world. Prime Minister Stalin voiced that viewpoint in his recent inter view with Republican Leader Harold E Stassen, and the press now is using it diligently. * The Russians are sensitive to President Truman’s program qt aid in the form of dollars for Greece and Turkey. They appear also to be convinced that the United States is dangling dollars before the gov ernments of Prance, Italy and Iran, to mention a few. The Moscow radio todav carried a report that the Netherlands was In bad financial shape and was weighting the possibilities of an American loan.» Sees Welcome to Applications. It seems to be the opinion here that the United States will wel come all such applications and in , making loans will stipulate provisos "beneficial,” as the Russians put it, to the United States and aimed against the Soviet Union. The Russians seem to feel that Britain is pretty much in the clutches of United States lenders, but they appear to have hope for a change in the United Kingdom. It is no secret here that Russia would like to aid Britain in her difficulties if it were at all possible. If the Soviet Union’s grain crop Is as good as it now promises to be, the world may see a big Russian effort to sell or trade grain in con siderable quantity to Britain. The same would hold true for timber and other products. Britain, of course, would be required to recipro cate. The chances for British Russian trade and co-operation have not appeared better for a long time. May Sell Grain to France. Russia has helped France in the past by selling her sdme grain, and If the harvest warrants she may try . to do it again. The USSR definitely is interested In developing more trade witn Scandinavia. The Russians are con vinced the Swedes believe that an economic crisis is coming for the United States. The Russians also would like to see more‘business deals and closer relationship between themselves and Latin-American countries, which they believe are being penetrated deeply by the dollar. Moscow Commentator Takes Britons to Task LONDON, May 17. (/P)—A Mos cow radio commentator took some members of the British parliament to task tonight for building up what he termed the impression that “prospects for international co-op eration are hopeless.” Commentator Yermashev recalled Prime Minister Stalin's recent talk with Harold E. Stassen, former Governor of Minnesota, and de clared that Mr. Stalin made it per fectly clear the Soviet Union re mains, as before, a consistent be liever in international co-operation.” He criticized those members of parliament who during a debate on foreign affairs attributed to Russia unwillingness to reach agreements.

The Chief Executive flew to Mis ! souri to be at the bedside of his mother, Mrs. Martha E. Truman, 94, who is reported in a serious condition. • —AP Wirephoto. mashev said, was expressed by United States Secretary of State Marshall in his report on the recent four power foreign ministers con ference. “Not one word was said about the unco-operativeness of the British and especially the American dele gations. the latter of which plainly attempted to force its views' on others,” Mr. Yermashev complained. Truman (Continued From First Page.)_ cheered after a threat a week ago of lung and liver complications had cleared up. But age was running against her. Gen. Graham described it simply: “A tired heart.” So the President who had spent three hours at the little cottage in Grandview a week ago—Mother’s Day—was summoned by other mem bers of the family early this morn ing. He breakfasted with Mrs. Truman n l> bliv M iU tv, iiuuov, Vilen wvn VI* in his personal plane from National Airport at 8:50 a.,m., and landed in Grandview 4 hours and 45 minutes later. Weather Bad for Landing. Accompanying the President were a few Secret Service men and Sec retaries Ross and Matthew J. Con nelly. A press plane which left Wash ington in mid-aftemoon carried other members of the Secret Serv ice detail: Miss Rose Conway, the President's personal secretary, and Rear Admiral James H. Foskett, Naval aide. The weather - was bad when the presidential plane approached the Grandview Airport, and it was feared for a few minutes that a landing would not be possible. The clouds broke sufficiently, however, for the plane to come in. President Truman had ignored the bad weather and an official ce iport that a tornado might develop in the area to fly to his mother’s bedside. The warnings were based I on reports that a tornado cloud Was sighted near Olathe, 30 miles west of Grandview'. Hurise to Mother’s Home. The weather bureau said later this report proved erroneous a ad ! was believed to have been the re | suit of a smoke cloud being mls ! taken for a tornado funnel. The President drove immediately to his mothers home, and after staying a while went to nearby home of his brother, J. Vivian Truman for lunch. Again this afternoon he remained at his mother's home, leaving only for dinner. He remained until late tonight ’when he returnee' to his quarters at the hotel here. Gen. Graham also is in constair attendance on Mrs. Truman as i." Dr. Joseph W. Green, of Indepen dence. the President's home. Dr. Gertrude McKee, of Belton. Mo., and a nurse, Mrs. Lily Best of Kan sas City. Talks With Mother. The President w-andered in and out of his mother's room, and the two conversed for several minutes. Mr. Ross explained that Mrs. Tru man’s mind is perfectly clear; that she is well aware of her condition and “talks about it.” She is sleeping intermittently, and Unrl lttfln Minnoii of ertff Krti Tori egg and a preparation that contains liver extract. The President brought his mother flowers from the White House—red roses and snap dragons. As word of her condition spread, messages of good cheer flowed in from all over the country’. President Truman had planned to sign the Greco-Turkish aid bill at 10:15 Monday, and invitations had gone out for the ceremony that was to vmark the occasion. Thesr invitations were cancelled today. Mr. Ross said the ceremony may be staged later, but tonight it was not certain how long the President would be here. He has 10 days to 'sign' the measure, which reached j him yesterday. , Mr. Ross explained that the President’s stay “depends on de velopments^’ His daughter. Miss Margaret Tru man, is scheduled to make her debut as a professional concert singer in Pittsburgh Tuesday night and at the moment there is no thought of ’ this affair being : cancelled. Life Insurance Agents Go on Strike Here for * 12 Per Cent Increase A hundred life insurance agents in the District and 250 in Maryand and Virginia are out on strike against the Peoples Life Insurance Co. for higher wages and improved working conditions, their union president said last night. George L. Russ, head of the In austriai ana urainary insurance Agents Council (AFL), said the strike began Friday at noon, after the company refused to submit their quarrel to arbitration after the ne gotiations had stalemated. Beside ten employes in the Alex andria office of the insurance firm there are agents on strike in Bal timore, Annapolis, Chestertown. and Salisbury, Md., and at Tappahan nock, Fredericksburg, Richmond, Norfolk, and Portsmouth, Va., Mr. Russ said. He said the question of wages was the chief point at issue. The agents are demanding increases in their commissions which would raise their pay about 12. per cent. The com pany has agreed that the cost of living has gone up, but refused to make any substantial wage offer, insisting that the individual em ploye should raise his own wrages hv increased nr'oductinn. Mr. Russ | said. Negotiations on the new contract ; have been in progress for several months, during which the agents | worked under a contract signed be tween the company and the union in 1944. It has been held in force on a day-to-day basis. « The dispute has been put in the hands of Labor Department Con ciliator James J. O'Byrne. He has not yet set a meeting between the; two sides. _ u.

Differences among the four powers have delayed the transfer of Hess and the six other top Nazi leaders from • Nuernberg jail to Spandau prison in Berlin. The prison, rebuilt so that it would be escape-proof, has been ready for months. .The French and the Russians have insisted that the seven should UC UCiU aw «-uuu*-o-uoj OVMWWJ confinement. The Anglo-American view was that this was extra pun ishment beyond that the military tribunal meant by confinement. Official sources said that the com promise, approaching more closely the Anglo-American attitude, was that the prisoners should be kept in isolated cells but exercise, work and attend religious services together. Conservation would be permitted only whep authorized. Spandau Prison with a capacity for almost 600 prisoners was vacated to make room for pnly seven. For the moment, informants said, there is no prospect of additional prisons.
