Plans to Remove Only 6S2 German Plants ly the Associated Press BERLIN, Oct. 16.—The British American military governments today announced plans to dis mantle only 682 German indus trial and war plants in their two nones for reparations in the “speediest” time possible to ex pedite European economic re covery. Of the factories, 380 are metal, chemical and electrical engineering, shipbuilding and power plants. "Hie remainder are war plants from which, the statement said, much of the general purpose equip ment already had been delivered to the Inter-Allied Reparations Agency, the Soviet Union,and Poland. The list, prepared under the new level of industry plan for the com bined Western zones, compared with more than 1,600 plants in the fused zones which were considered for reparations under the old level of industry for all of Germany. To Consider Substitutions. In a joint statement to the Ger man people, Gen. Lucius D. Clay and Marshal Sir Sholto Douglas, the American and British military governors, emphasized that the reparations plan was a “firm” one. but said they would consider “well founded” suggestions for substitu tion of equivalent individual niants Publication of the list of plants to be dismantled has been waited tensely by Germans since the new level of industry for the combined zones, providing for a ceiling pro duction of 10,700,000 ingot tons of steel, was announced in late Aug ust. German public officials and trade union leaders have attacked the British-American reparations pol icy as a blow to German economic revival and a source of unemploy ment. Trade unionists have threat ened honco-operation in dismantl ing the plants, as well as strikes and demonstrations. Ruhr Protest Strikes Forecast. Dispatches from the Ruhr fore cast sit-down strikes in protest against dismantlings soon after the list was published. The Joint statement of the mili tary governors declared: “We wish to make it clear that all necessary steps for the speediest possible fulfillment of the program will be taken so that on the one hand German industry may get ahead with its constructive tasks, and, on the other hand, that the nations receiving reparations of capital plant and equipment may be able to turn these resources to good account during these next few years, when the economic recovery of Europe must be expedited by every possible means.” Announcement of the plants to be dismantled gives Western Ger many the “go ahead” on the new “level of industry” plan designed to take war production out of the Ger axicaxi cwuuny, JJXUVIUC y New England Syrup has the real true maple flavor —tastes wonderful with pancakes!

When the dismantling has been completed the bizonal area will be left with a production capacity suffi cient to permit production at ap proximately the 1936 rate. British and American officials estimated. The plan calls for exports at a rate in excess of that of 1936. In the heavy industries, Including metals, machinery and chemicals, the capacities remaining are ex pected to permit production on the average of 5 to 10 per cent less than the 1936 level. However, the light Industries will have a much higher production capacity than in 1936. Rails Overcharged U. S.
