Election Newspaper Says Reds In German Capital Have Determined on 'X-Day' By the Associated Press BERLIN, Sept. 13.—A liberal democratic newspaper here said today “X day” for achieving Communist seizure of Berlin has ■ been fixed for some time after the November presidential elec- j tions in the United States. The newspaper Montagsecho as serted the Russians have given Ger man Communists orders to step up riotous demonstrations to seize con trol of the city because Moscow j 'wants no four-power settlement of the 80-dav-old blockade crisis. A high* informed source in Mos cow' said* last night resumption of four-pow'er talks there on the Bir lin crisis is “quite likely” this week. The informant made this prediction after the return to the Russian capital of Francois Seydoux, po litical and diplomatic adviser to Lt. Gen. Joseph Pierre Koenig, French military governor in Ger many. Mr. Seydoux left Moscow i August 31 for Berlin, taking im-j portant documents to the three j Western military governors. Riots and strikes Seen. Until' "X-day.” Montagsecho said, the Communists aim to “seize every opportunity to promote riots, strikes and demonstrations” to worsen the local political situation. The newspaper asserted the Com munist hope the weather will inter fere with the British-American air lift that has been supplying Western Berlin and that the Russians have promised "to interfere with the air supply shuttle by increasing their own plane maneuvers over Berlin.” Montagsecho said the date for Communist seizure of control had been fixed at a meeting of leaders of the Communist-dominated Social ist Unity Party <SEDi during the past week. These leaders, the paper said, convened after receiving in structions from Soviet occupation ; chiefs. ' Montagsecho claimed the Com munist goal now is a full break with I parliamentary government and a "people's democracy” in favor of es tablishing a "dictatorship of the proletariat." It predicted that "SED will systematically seek with all means to provoke the population, elected government and democratic parties. The aim is to strain the nerves of Berliners to the utmost." The newspaper said "high Soviet occupation officials at Karlshorst headquarters have openly told lead ing SED functionaries that Russians | do not want any agreement over Berlin or Germany and that is why They have employed delaying and blocking tactics in talks at Moscow and in Berlin.” It added that the date for seizure of control of Berlin had been fixed for after the United States elections, (See BERLIN.

Predominantly Hindu. India asserted disorder is rife in Hyderabad and that the fabulously rich Nizam had refused to disband private armies such as the Razakars.

Similar suspended sentences were | imposed on two other women tried with the shapely 27-year-old ! brunette. The two other women were Made leine Blavier, 33, a native of Bel gium. and Margaret Starr, 30, daughter of a retired minister. Magistrate Arthur Markewich, who pronounced sentence, safd all three defendants were intelligent, and added: “I don't think they need to have any one stand over them with a horsewhip. "The problem of prostitution is not solved in a criminal court. It is a social, economic and moral problem." The three were convicted on charges brought by police who wire tapped phone conversations between the women and men. Mrs. Choremi is the mother of a 5-.vear-old son. Her husband ar rived recently from North Africa. She was found guilty on a charge of loitering in her East Side Manhat tan apartment for the purpose of committing an act df prostitution.

School bells rang out today for some 114,000 boys and girls in Washington, Montgomery County and Arlington County. Registration figures were not; available immediately, but expected j enrollments were; District, 83,000; j Montgomery County, 21,000, and Arlington County, 10,000. In each case, an increase in enrollment over last September was anticipated. With these openings today, all public schools in the Washington area will be in session. Schools in Prince Georges and Fairfax Counties and in Alexandria opened last week. Also opening today were the six schools operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the Metropoli tan Area. Accurate Estimate Delayed. In the District, uncertainty as to how many non-resident students will return to school now that they must pay tuition prevented an ac curate prediction of enrollment. School Superintendent Hobart M. Corning said enrollment probably will exceed last year's total, but said he could not be more definite than that. He did say that some 4,000 more elementary children were expected to enroll than last year, however.! Evidence that enrollment in the kindergarten and first grades was on the increase was apparent at the Logan Elementary School, Third and G streets N.E., where halls were jammed with parents trying to enroll their children. Mrs. Catherine L. Pinkett, princi pal, said that it looked as if enroll ment would go up to more than 900 before the day was over. Last year it was about 700. The school elim inated part-time classes last year, but a return to the part-time ap peared inevitable, Mrs. Pinkett said. 1,200 on Part-Time Last Year. Logan was one of 18 elementary schools which found enrollment this morning so large that part-time classes must be set-up. Eleven other colored grade schools were forced to hold part-time classes last year. School officials were ex pecting those 11 to be on part time again this year, but said not too much of an increase in part time classes was expected in the colored schools “right away.” Last year more than 1,200 boys and girls were on part time. By the time registration is com pleted, however, this picture may change. Last year, five white elementary schools were on part time- Stanton Elementary School is planning to hold part-time classes in the first grades because of increasing en rollment to bring this total to six this year.

Reece Asserts Dewey Has Good Chance of Carrying Tennessee Governor Looks to Maine For Election Trend as State Goes to Polls * SENATE CONTEST Is Feature of Maine Election Today. Page A-5 RUNOFF FIGHT Due to Be Settled in Texas. Page A-2 G. O. P. DESERTS Nation’s Farmers. New Truman Theme. Page A-2 By J. A. O'Leary Star Staff Correspondent ALBANY, Sept. 13.—Gov. Dew ey was told today he has a good chance of carrying Tennessee by Carroll Reece, the Republican candidate for the Senate in that State this year against Demo cratic Representative Kefauver. Tennessee leaves the Democratic fold only when there is a national landslide, or other unusual situa tion, such as the two-way split that caused Henry Wallace to start the Progressive Party, while the deep South started an independent States’.Rights movement. Mr. Reece, former chairman of the Republican National Committee, was asked if he expected any sup port in the Senate race from Mayor Crump, Democratic leader of Mem phis. “That question has neither been asked nor answered in Tennessee,” Mr. Reece replied with a smile. Must Have Some Help. He conceded a few minutes later, however, that to carry Tennessee the Republicans either must win over some Democratic voters or benefit from a stay-at-home trend among Democrats on Election Day. Representative Kefauver won the Democratic senatorial nomination bv defeating not only the incumbent, Senator Stewart, but also the candi date backed by Mr. Crump. Mr. Reece charged in a news con ference here today that Mr. Ke fauver has been following "radical ideologies.” Meanwhile, Gov. Dewey turned one eye toward Maine today to see if the figures in that State's early general election bear out advance predictions of a Republican trend this year. Size of Vote Important. The rockribbed Pine Tree State never departed from its Republican moorings, even at the height of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s popularity. But the Dewey camp is awaiting with interest the size of the vote this year, because the margin of victory might be a straw in the wind as to how the rest of the country will vote in November. The old saying, “As Maine goes, so goes the Nation," lost its mean ing in the Roosevelt era. For 16 years the Nation went one way and Maine went the other. This year the G. O.

Federal Raises Urged By Truman as NFFE Meets in Milwaukee Message to Convention Also Asks Abolition of 'Hit-or-Miss' Promotions By Joseph Young Star Staff Correspondent MILWAUKEE, Wis„ Sept. 13.— A revision of the Federal Pay Classification Act “all along the line” and a drastic improvement of the Government’s “hit-or miss” promotion system was urged today by President Tru man in a message to the open ing convention session of the National Federation of Federal Employes. More than 600 delegates, the largest number ever to attend an NITE convention in the union's 31-year history, heard NFFE Presi dent Luther C. Steward read Mr. Truman’s message. The President declared: “We must provide a higher salary ceiling than that which prevails at the present time ($10,330 a year). In my judg ment, the salary range for career civil servants should be extended to approximately $15,000. Then ad justments should be made all along the line, designed to make it pos sible for all employes to receive fair compensation in terms of the pres ent-day purchasing power of the dollar. "Certainly none of us can be satisfied with the system which we now follow in fixing the compensa tion of our salaried employes,” Mr. Truman added. "I have urged Con gress to modernize the Classifica tion Act of 1923. I shall continue to do so. It is a job that needs to be done if the management of the Government is to be carried for ward on a sound basis.” Turning to the Government's pro motion system, the President was sharply critical of the present methods. “This (the promotional system) is still handled on too much of a hit-or-miss basis,” Mr. Truman asserted. “We must not develop a system which will result in delays in the carrying forward of the Govern ment's business. At the same time, we must have a system which will reduce to a minimum the possibility of the desires of those who seek i power for selfish purposes being the controlling factor in making pro motions. It is just as important for us to promote persons on the basis of merit as it is for us to recruit them on that basis in the first in stance.” Mr. Truman once again took oc casion to praise the contributions of Federal employes during the past few years in imprtfgM Government operation. ]|jP^t "Those who hive been associated with the Government during both (See NFFETPage A-3.) 7 New Cases of Polio Bring Total to 134 Seven new cases of infantile paralysis were reported to the Dis trict Health Department over the | week end bringing to 134 the num ber of polio victims to be treated in hospitals here this year.
