Berlin Turning Point Seen Near, With Appeal to U. N. Now Likely; City Braces for Red Rally Today Top American and British Officials In Parleys Here By Garnett D. Horner There were strong indications last night that efforts to settle the Berlin crisis in negotiations with Russia are nearing a defi nite turning point. An unusual series of conferences at the State Department coincided with reports that if direct negotia tions in Moscow fail to bring im mediate lifting of the Soviet block ade of Berlin, the Western powers were prepared to turn the issue over to the United Nations. Secretary of State Marshall and his top advisers conferred separately with Chairman Vandenberg of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, a leading Republican figure in all foreign policy matters, and British Ambassador Sir Oliver Franks. Nothing was made public about their talks except that they concerned the Berlin deadlock. IT. S. Officials silent. American officials kept a tight lipped silence od the reports that the West Is ready to put the issue up- to the U. N. if the direct nego tiations collapse. They do not want to impair any possible chance of a negotiated settlement with Moscow by public discussion of possible fu ture moves. In Rome, however, two other lead ing members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senators Con nally of Texas, and Hatch of New Mexico, both Democrats, asserted that the crisis should be referred to the U.N. if the direct negotia tions fail. Senator Hatch said the Berlin situation is a "threat to world peace" and a* such should be taken to the U.N. if all other efforts at solution break down. Senator Connallv suggested that ‘‘reunion r.ow of the Big Four for eign ministers might precede refer ence of the crisis -to the U.N.” Fail ing there, he said “the entire mess" should be aired before the U.N. General Assembly, which convenes September 21 in Paris. Officials Refuse to Comment. Reports from abroad that the American, British and French gov ernments had decided to make a final appeal directly to Soviet Prime Minister Stalin to avert a break down in prolonged negotiations about Berlin met a firm refusal to comment by officials here. Senator Vandenberg, told report ers as he left the State Department that they might as well put their pencils and notebooks away he could provide no news. The British Ambassador would say only that he was there for a general discussion of the Berlin sit uation. Senator Vandenberg s conferences here gave added emphasis to the bi partisan nature of American policy in Berlin. He came to Washington after conferring with Gov. Dewey, Republican presidential candidate, Friday, and issuing a statement serving notice that America is united to "protect American rights everywhere" and “against the foes of freedom.” Marshall Joins lams. He arrived at the State Depart ment at 11:05 a.m., went directly bv a private elevator to Undersecre tary of State Lovett's office, and did not leave until after 1 p.m. Secre tary Marshall joined Senator Van denberg and Mr. Lovett for a part of their talk, as did State Depart ment Counsellor Charles E. Bohlen. top expert on Russian affairs. In the meantime, the British Ambassador conferred for 45 min utes with Mr. Bohlen and returned to the department later for a briefer talk with Gen. Marshall.

S. Lacks Planes, Guns for Real Punch, 2 Generals Find in Survey of Maneuvers By th« Associated Press GRAFENWOEHR, Germany, Sept. 11.—Two’ American gen erals told officers of the United States 1st Infantry Division to day to expect the worst if war breaks out in Europe, saying American soldiers lack the planes and guns that make up a real punch. The speakers were Maj. Gen. Prank W. Milburn, division com mander, and Brig. Gen. John McKee, foimer commander of the 37th Infantry Division. The opinions came out of a sur vey of the famed division's conduct in a three-day mock-war in which it got kicked around by an "ag gressor” force. The maneuvers re sume next Monday, when a mythi cal six divisions will not only at | tack, but according to plans, win. Standing on a hillside, Gen. Mil burn said to his staff: "In the next war, if we get hopped on, we will not have air and artillery superiority, so every one must go on the assumption that we have no air support at all and we must dig' in, camouflage and fight a delaying action." Gen. McKee said: "We have operated in these ma neuvers apparently the same as we did at the close of the last war, * * * that is, that we have air superiority. That will not be true in the next war. certainly not in the initial phases." Gen., Milburn also told the offi cers to explain down to the last GI just why the division is practicing to fall back. The problem, he asserted, pits— or will pit next week—a supposed force too strong for one division to handle. The maneuver problem assumed a striking force of great power from the East, w-ith the United States infantry trying to delay the sweep towards the Rhine. Except for a somewhat ‘‘com placent” attitude on the air phase, Gen. Milburn found little criticism of his forces. He said it was the "best division I ever have seen, and that includes all those that Jumped oft in the last w'ar." The 26th Infantry Regiment, com manded by Col. Sam T. Williams, came in for special praise. Its 1,000 men marched 14 miles at four miles an hour at, night, split the aggressor lines, and crossed up the "enemy" intelligence. This alone saved the division from a mythical smashing defeat. Soviet Hits Absence Of Marshall, Bevin From Colonies Parley Note States Willingness To Attend Paris Session Tomorrow, However |y the Associated Press LONDON, Sept. 11.—Russia has expressed willingness to attend a Paris meeting on Italy’s prewar colonies, but the Moscow radio said tonight that such a meeting could not be called a Council of Foreign Ministers because of/the refusal of the United States and Britain to send their top men. Meanwhile, in the French capital, reliable sources said officials of the four big powers would confer to morrow on plans for a meeting ten tatively scheduled for Monday. Negotiations for the meeting have brought, about a sharp exchange of notes between Moscow and Wash ington. A Soviet note to the United States broadcast by the Moscow radio last night, called attention to the fact that Secretary of State Marshall did not plan to attend the Monday meeting. The note said Russia “will not object” to a meet ing without Gen. Marshall. Tonight, the Moscow' radio noted that British Foreign Secretary Bev in also did not plan to attend and said the absence of Gen. Marshall and Mr. Bevin W'ould make it im possible to describe the meeting as a Council of Foreign Ministers. This contention w!as denied by Washington tonight in a note to Moscow. The note also denied a Soviet charge that the United States had violated the Italian peace treaty i See COLONIES.

Walsh An “Army expert on atomic energy,” apparently Lt. Gen. Les lie R. Groves, wartime chief of the atomic bomb project, told the House Committee on Un-Ameri can Activities he was “certain” that Russian spies got some atomic secrets in this country, a committee member disclosed last night. -Representative Vail. Republican, of Illinois did not name the “high ranking officer” who, he said, tes tified to this effect at closed sessions of the committee last week. The witness, he declared, informed the committee he was greatly concerned about “intense activity of Russian espionage agents in their efforts to penetrate atomic research safe guards” and that he notified Presi dent Roosevelt and later President Truman. Gen. Groves, now retired, ap peared before the committee last Friday. He hinted to reporters that there may have been some leaks of atomic research secrecy. “According to the testimony of the officer,” Mr. Vail said, "he was certain that in some degree the Russian efforts were successful. To what degree, he did not venture an opinion. He testified that Russian spies tried to get atomic secrets both before and during his associa tion with the project.” It was recalled that the Manhat tan Project, the $2,000,000,000 under taking directed by Gen. Groves dur ing the war. was not organized until several months after the start of work on the atom bomb. Mr. Vail asserted that this testi mony was ‘ a direct contradiction of President Truman's contention that Communists were not involved in wartime espionage." He was refer ring to a recent news conference comment by the President that dur I ing the war the Russians were allies of the United States and that the Germans and Japanese were the real spies. "It would appear.” Mr. Vail said, "that the President was either un aware of the true wartime espionage . situation or is desperately endeav oring to shield his administration through such a generalization from ‘justified public censure."

Western Powers Are Targets of Demonstration By th« Associated Press BERLIN, Sept. 11.—Riot-torn Berlin braced itself tonight for a Communist demonstration. Under the slogan "anybody who doesn't march tomorrow is a Nazi," the Communists were reported to have ordered even children to turn out for a Sunday rally against the Western powers. American officials frankly stated thftt the situation had -become "highly dangerous," with Germans meeting under one power to demon strate against another power. The Sabbath demonstration is set for the Lustgarten, about a half mile inside the Soviet sector of Berlin. The rally was called to pro test Thursday’s anti-Russian mass meeting which touched off street fighting. i lav Hits Demonstrations. After the most violent week in the 79-day-old Soviet blockade. Gen. Lucius D. Clay, American military governor, said: "Mass demonstrations are not the way to solve the present Berlin situation.” The Americans planned to imi tate the British and ban any dem onstrations in the American sector within "incident range" of the Rus sian boundary. Both British and Americans acknowledged that it was difficult to prohibit anti-Com munist outbursts altogether in view of the Russian-backed chive to oust the elected city government. Western German police mobilized strong forces to guard the sector boundaries against a possible in vasion of demonstrators from the Eastern zone rally. Germans Growing Bolder. The Germans, long split along East-West lines, this week grew bolder as a result of the four-power snarl. For the first time they physic ally attacked Russian troops, show ering them with rocks after Thurs day's anti-Communist demonstra tion. Germans ripped the Red Flag from atop Brandenburg Gate. They stoned a Russian war memorial. Today the Christian-Democrat newspaper went one step further. It advised the Russians to pull down the massive monument which they proudly erected to the conquest of Berlin. "The Soviet military administra tion Berlin has made 'every, con ceivable mistake.” the newspaper said. "This monument is the worst. Never before in Europe has a victor erected a war monument in the capital of the conquered.” Repatriations Reported. Adding to the cleavage, a British licensed newspaper said the Rus sians had repatriated thousands of members of the Paulus - Seydlitz "Free Gernamy” army, infiltrating them into the police forces through out their zone. The leport way given credence in Allied intelligence quarters. rhc move would give lmmeuimc strong-arm support to communism in the zone. A more distant and vital objective could be to set up the nucleus for a Communist army if the Western Allies agreed with Russia to pull out occupation forces. "The Free Germany" army W'as formed alter the Stalingrad battle and Is composed of Germans who have been converted to communism. Berliners marked down the last few days as the "bloody week” of the crisis, with one dead and at least 20 injured. For the first time. Russian soldiers fired after a Soviet jeep was stoned. Violence Began Monday. Violence began Monday when Communist -led demonstrators stormed the City Hall, forcing the anti-Red government to withdraw to the safety of the West—perhaps permanently. Russian-directed German police crashed into an American office of the City Hall on the following day and carried off in chains 19 Western German policemen refuged there. On the. next night the Russians clamped a hunger blockade on the City Hall to starve out a score more policemen still cornered in the British and French offices. They lifted this and guaranteed safe passage to the policemen, but only a few blocks away Russians and Germans seized the police and car ried them off. These events burst into the ful minating anti-Russian flareup in Thursday's demonstration. The Soviet-licensed news agency said a Soviet military court will'try on Monday the four men seized after Thursday's riot. They will be charged w'ith attacking "Soviet citizens" and police. The chief of the British trans port section in Berlin said that some railway mail cars have been moving back and forth all summer between Eastern and Western zones of Germany on routes other than the blockaded Berlin-Helmstedt line. This movement, he said, has "no significance” as far as the Soviet blockade of Berlin is concerned. —----—-- 1 i Scotland Yard Recovers Portrait by Reynolds ty tha Associated Press LONDON, Sept. 11. — Scotland Yard tonight recovered a painting by Sir Joshua Reynolds—insured for £5,000 i $30,0001 — which was stolen from the Earl of Carlisle.

The newspaper, a government organ, said an official decree re cently established road machinery stations. Each station will serve a particu lar area and will be equipped with all types of road-making machinery to Insure the construction by each of 30 miles of hard-surfaced high way and 60 miles of improved dirt roads annually, it said. Thus far, Izvestia said, 32 such stations actually have been estab lished and 43 more are scheduled to go into operation before the end of the year. It said 63 others ara to go into operation at the beginning of next year. The article said the Soviet Unioh has Insufficient good automobile highways and that building them is one of the country’s chief problems. The article stated that the gov ernment now is producing road building machinery in large quanti ties and that new road machinery stations are an effort to nee that this new machinery is used effi ciently. The establishment of the road machinery stations is comparable in some ways in significance to the establishment of machine tractor stations in Soviet agriculture.
