U.S. Reported Backing
Argentina, Canada,
Czechs for Council
By th« Associated Fr*»
LAKE SUCCESS, Sept. 27.—The
United States was reported ready
today to support Argentina, Czecho
slovakia and Canada for seats on
the United Nations Security Council
at elections next Tuesday. The trio
would replace Poland, Australia and
Brazil, whose terms expire Jan. 1.
The election of Canada and Ar
gentina was said to be virtually as
sured but there was some doubt
whether Czechoslovakia would ac
cept or whether Russia wanted the
Prague government as the second
member from Eastern Europe. Rus
sia was said to be insisting on the
Soviet Ukraine and the possibility
even was held out that a deadlock'
would lead to Poland’s seat going j
to India.
Caucus Backs Argentina.
Argentina's candidacy boomed
after a caucus of Latin American
republics was reported to have
agreed to support the Peron gov
ernment for the place.
For the 18-nation economic and
Social Council, where the terms of
Russia, Britain. Cuba, Czechoslo
vakia. India and Norway expire,
the American delegation was re
ported ready to back Russia and!
Britain for re-election and Iran.j
Poland, Denmark and Brazil as new:
The Trusteeship Council also has
to name two additional members
and the leading choices were the
Philippines and Norway.
Elections for the Security and
Economic and Social Councils will
be held by secret ballot without
nominations in a plenary session
of the General Assembly at Flush
ing. >
me united stares, Kussia, rrance,
Britain and China hold permanent
seats on the 11-nation Security
Council. The other six members
are elected for two-year terms with
three expiring every January 1.
Thus should Argentina, Czechoslo
vakia and Canada be elected next
week, they would hold seats Janu
ary 1 along writh the Big Fiv^ and j
Colombia, Syria and Belgium—thej
three members whose terms still
have a year to run.
Terms on the Economic and Social
Council run for three years withj
a third of the 18-nation council be
ing replaced every year. To create
the system of rotation and vary the
expiration dates, The U. N. elected
for one, two and three years when
the council originally was set up. I
Increased Tax Exemptions
Sought for Home Builders
By tho Associated Press
Senator Wiley, Republican, ofj
Wisconsin, yesterday urged “in
creased tax exemptions and long
range tax advantages for home
builders” to stimulate new housing.
In a letter to Representative
Gamble, Republican, of New York,
chairman of the joint Congressional
Committee on Housing, Senator
Wiley said "tax modification would
make home building more financially j
attractive to builders, who, like other j
business men, have been too long]
penalized for their initiative rather
than encouraged.”
Something should be done about
It at the next session of Congress,
he said, adding that both political
parties will be held responsible if
there is not “still further improve
ment in housing conditions and
lowering of home prices.”
Senator Wiley also suggested that
the committee investigate means of
increasing the production of workers
in the building trades.

German Strike Orders
Reported in Protest
Of Factory Razing
By tha Aisoctotad Prat*
BERLIN, Sept. 27.—German trade
union leaders at Hamburg declared
today orders had been issued
throughout the British zone for
strikes as a form of open “resistance"
to British-American plans for the
dismantling of large numbers of
German factories for reparations.
Adolf Kummernus, chairman of
the Hamburg Trade Union Congress,
said, “no German worker will be
encouaged to lay hands on any
plants useful for peace production.”
Dispatches from Essen said ten
sion prevailed throughout the in
dustrial Ruhr as the result of un
confirmed reports that there were
from 900 to 1,800 factories on the
American-British list for removal,
including Germany’s entire ballbear
ing industry, virtually all the so
called “peaceful” section of the great
Krupp works, and three plants
which manufacture much-needed
coal mining equipment.
Strike Reported at Kiel.
Workers at the Holmag factory, at
Kiel, already have gone on strike,'
Hamburg dispatches said, as a result
of reports the plant is to be torn'
down. The factory makes Diesel ma
rine engines and Germans claimed
its dismantling would cripple the
fishing industry. Allied officials said
the factory could easily be converted
to war purposes.
The revised list of dismantlings
compiled since the British-American
decision was reached last August to
raise the industrial level for Western
Germany to approximately the 1936
standard is expected to be published
next week.
In Berlin, Gen. Lucius D. Clay,
American military governor, de
clared the posting of the reparations
list of German factories considered
surplus to that level would go ahead
__ ~ r
like It.
Warns Germans to Obey.
“If German unions refuse to obey)
orders they can hardly expect us to)
keep shipping in food to feed them,” j
he said. - |
Essen dispatches said the dis
mantling list already had been
placed in the hands of British, Am
erican and German economic officials
and bits of Information had leaked
out, creating an explosive issue.
Gen. Clay declared, however, that
although the list had been drafted
it had not been approved by him and
could not be considered final until
approved by him and the British
military governor. He said his stand
remained unaltered that Russia
would receive no more industrial
reparations out of the American
zone until she agrees to fulfill the
Potsdam accord for four-power con
trol of German economy.

Capital lo Be Target
Early in Next War,
Col. Mann Warns
Washington would be one of the
first targets if another war should
come, Col. LeRoy S. Mann, com
manding the 260th Anti-Aircraft
Artillery Group of the District Na
tional Guard, warned a Manor Park
audience yesterday afternoon.
A rally, under the auspices of the
Manor Park Citizens Association at
the Coolidge Recreation Center,
Third and Tuckerman streets N.W.,
was held to stimulate Guard recruit
Col. Mann, principal speaker, said
Washington would be attacked by
an enemy because it is not only the
seat of the National Government,
but an important rail link between
north and south. He suggested that
the association sponsor Battery C of
the 380th Anti-Aircraft Automatic
Weapons Battalion of the District
Quick Defense Planned.
The Guard is national security
Insurance, Col. Mann declared, and
he said it is being organized here
on a basis of being able to go into
action immediately if necessary. He
said anti-aircraft, ordnance, a band,
Air Force fighter units, an aircraft
warning and control unit, military!
police and other groups are now
being set up. Accordingly, there is!
opportunity for men between 17 and
35 to join now.
Col. Mann, who is in the insur
ance business here, declared that, I
in event of war, the Guard military
police would take over traffic con
trol, and guard reservoirs, public
utilities, transportation and other
rk«rt_Q nf tvto The
planes would meet the enemy at
sea, he said,
"We believe we can delay war,
before It starts, with a strong na
tional defense, and shorten it if it
comes,” Col. Mann said.
"We certainly need universal
military training,” he declared, add
ing that Guardsmen would inte
grate activities with graduates of
this training, if Congress authorizes
3.200 Men Needed.
Col. Mann pointed out the Guard
here now needs 3.200 officers and en
listed men.
Ernest Pullman, chairman of the
association's special National Guard
Committee, was master of cere
monies at the rally. Leverett A.1
Meadows, association president, whoj
also spoke, said his association is
the first to support a Guard unit and
seek recruits for it.
The program started with a con
cert by the 702nd Army Air Forces
Band, stationed at Andrews Field.
There also was a demonstration of
Guard equipment.

Austin Asks Approval
Of Plan for U. N. Home
Before Finance Study
By th« Associated Press
LAKE SUCCESS, Sept. 27.—War
ren R. Austin of the United States,
chairman of the special United Na
tions Headquarters Committee,
urged the committee today to ap
prove general plans for the U. N.’s
new headquarters in New York City
before approaching the question of
how the headquarters construction
is to be financed.
The general building plan before
the committee calls tentatively for
expenditure of about <65,000,000.
Obviously annoyed over sugges
tions that the financial problem
should be dealt with first, Mr. Aus
tin warned the committee “to avoid
taking a subsequent step before tak
ing the first step.”
The chairman insisted that “we
must know what we are talking
about” before any sort of recom
mendation regarding finance is sub
mitted to the U. N. Budgetary Com
mittee. Mr. Austin stressed re
peatedly that an overall construc
tion plan must be approved, at
least provisionally, “before we will
know what sum of money we are
going to apply for.”
Norman Makin, Australian Am
bassador to the United States agreed
with Mr. Austin that "first we must
have a plan.”
“Until we know what plan we
want,” he added, “we are in no po
sition to ask anyone to finance it.”
Roland Lebeau, the Belgian dele
gate. suggested that the committee
first “must know the general princi
ples of financing the project.”
Trygve Lie, U. N. secretary-general,
appealed to the committee to ap
prove first a general plan, with a
recommendation for the approxi
mate total cost of the site.
A majority of the 16-nation com
mittee fully approved the external
architectural plan submitted by
Wallace K. Harrison, director of
planning, and it was not until the
matter of finances came up that
the committee bogged dowfi in de

American, 22, Says U. S. Holds
Him Without Charges in Trieste
By the Associated Dr*ss
TRIESTE, Sept. 27. — Charles
Lipow, 22-year-ol.d member of the
American Youth for Democracy who
came here 10 days ago from Yugo
slavia, charged today that he was
'held "a virtual prisoner by Amer
ican counter-intelligence agents,
without charges and without ex
1 planation.”
He told newsmen that he was
sleeping and eating at the CIC
(Counter-Intelligence Corps) head
quarters here and that all his doc
uments, including his passport, and
his money had been confiscated
"without a receipt.”
Mr. Lipow, who gave his home as
the Bronx,, New York, said he was
not a member of the Communistj
Party but was ‘‘very proud of my|
connection with the American |
Youth for Democracy.”
French Plan Merger
Of Zone in Germany,
London Reports Say
By th« Associated Press
LONDON, Sept. 27.—French rep
resentatives tentatively have told
| the United States and Britain that
France will merge her zone of Ger
! many with their combined zones
after the November meeting of the:
Council of Foreign Ministers, au-|
thoritative diplomatic sources said
These sources, representing two
of the governments concerned, pre
; uiltcu tiiai/ une ui me iusu major
sequels to this move would hf that
the United States and Britain would
back a French request, said to be
imminent, for the political and eco
nomic incorporation of the German
Saar into France.
(A French Foreign Office spokes
man in Paris said his government
had not made any prior commit
ments “officially, unofficially or any
other way” to integrate her zone
with the American and British.
(Why should we tie our hands like
that prior to vital negotiations in
the November council meeting?” he
Plan Fight for Saar.
(If the east-west deadlock per
sisted through the November meet
ing, however, he said France might
have to re-examine her entire Ger
man policy. He said France would
make an all-out effort to obtain ap
proval of the economic incorpora
tion of the Saar within France at
the November meeting.)
A British Foreign Office spokes
man said Britain expected the issue
would be raised almost certainly
during these sessions.
Britain, he added, would suppxfrt
“the political and economic integra
tion of the Saar with France” on
two conditions:
First, that reparations due to
France from Germany be adjusted'
American military authorities re
fused to discuss the case except to
say that Mr. Lipow was under in
vestigation because of his affiliation
with the left-wing Youth for De
mocracy movement.
Mr. Lipow said he went to Yugo
slavia to work on the youth railway
project, entering the country from
Czechoslovakia, where he had at
tended the youth festival. He said
he had no knowledge of a State
Department ban on travel by Amer
icans to Yugoslavia except in spe
cial circumstances.
He explained that he entered
Yugoslavia with a permit issued in
Prague to some Czechs and other
youths. His passport, he said, did
not state that there was a ban on
Yugoslavia, presumably because it
was issued before the State Depart
ment ruling.
in accordance with the value of the
area she would take over.
Second, that the final frontiers of
the Saar, after it has been absorbed
into France, be subject to agreed
U. S. Expected to Agree.
The Foreign Office spokesman em
phasized that Britain was not in
separate consultation with the
I United States on the subject. But
diplomatic informants declared they
understood the United States would
“agree in principle."
Expectation appeared general
among government officials con
cerned with the future of Germany
that, unless something “miraculous’
happens, existing east-west differ
peace settlements will crystallize!
into a break after the Foreign Min
isters Council meets.
The foreign ministers are ex
pected to meet in London November
25 for what British leaders believe
will be their “last chance” to write
jointly agreed German and Aus
trian peace treaties.
Now Part of French Zone.
The rich, coal-producing Saar
basin is now part of the French
zone of Germany. Its incorporation
would bring to France an industrial
and mining region of 726 square
miles, with a population of nearly
1,000,000. With coal as its basic in
dustry, the Saar also turns out mil
lions of tons of steel and iron each
year, as well as ceramics, glass and
certain chemicals.
