Deputies of Big Four
. Split in Deliberation
On Italian Colonies
By th· Associated Press
LONDON, Oct. 7.—The score was
2 to 2—two agreements and two dis
agreements—as Big Four deputies
deliberating disposition of Italy's
prewar African colonies assembled
today for their third session.
They agreed, at yesterday's ses
sion, to:
1. Hear claims of Italy, Ethiopia
and Egypt before making any final
2. Send investigators to each of the
colonies—Eritreat, Italian Somali
land. Tripolitania and Cyrenaica—
before making disposition.
They disagreed over:
1. What other nations should be
consulted, beside those with terri
torial claims, before making final de
cisions. Britain favored hearing any
nation which wanted to be heard.
The United States thought only
those who fought with the Allies in
the African campaigns should be
heard. Russia proposed that any
nation which signed the Italian
peace treaty should be heard. France
sided with Russia.
2. How many commissions of in
vestigators to send to the colonies.
Russia proposed sending two, one to
Eritrea and Somaliland and one to
Cyrenaica and Tripolitania. The
other three powers thought one com
mission was enough for all.
An American informant said the
American delegate. Waldemar Gall
man, Charge d'Affaires in the Em
bassy in London, did not take a seri
ous view of the disagreements. He
was quoted as being hopeful of full
agreement on procedure by No
vember 1.
The Big Four powers have until
September 15, 1948, to decide on dis
position of the colonies. After that
it becomes a United Nations problem.

Kindler Sees More Work Ahead
In Noting Improved Orchestra
! When an orchestra improves, 1
means more work for the conductor
. according to Dr. Hans Kindler.
Dr. Kindler conducted the Na
r tional Symphony Orchestra in thi
season's first rehearsal yesterday ir
Constitution Hall. Interviewed im
/mediately after the session, he pro
i nounced it a better group of mlisi
I cians than that of last year.
Then, he commented that the im
provement would mean "lots of har<
" ; work."
;! "It's always more difficult whei
rivou have a better orchestra,'1 he sai<
in explaining the seeming paradox
"You feel you can do more, and, sc
you want to do more."

I Dr. Kindler displayed his familia
vigor and enthusiasm as he tool

through illness, which kept hin
from the podium for many months
There are 20 new musicians amoni
the 95 in the orchestra. As has beei
the case for a number of years, it i,
a young orchestra.
"And I like it that way," Di
Kindler said.· "I want people whi
I still find Beethoven's Fifth Sym

anything ever done here"—and hi
■ said he meant in any field of artistii
