Ijjeld today.
The police report said that the
truck, owned by the District

that the driver, because there is

IU. 5. to Ask Britain and France to Block War Goods for Reds
By th« Associated Press
Secretary of State Acheson is
expected to take up soon with
Britain and France means of
plugging trade loopholes through
which war * potential material
might slip to the Soviet bloc.
Diplomatic officials forecast to
day the United States will bring
up the problem at the New York
meeting of Big Three Western
foreign ministers two weeks hence
President Truman said yester
day that efforts already are being
made to get other countries to
act. He denied at his news con
ference that the United States
has been lax in controling ship
Without naming any nation,
the President said there won’t be
any trouble if other countries
plug trade loopholes. Officials
speculated he may have meant
Great Britain, having in mind two
current episodes involving the
British which underscore the dif
ficulty of controling East-West
The latest was Winston Church
ill’s Conservative Party cam
paign charge that machine tools
of a type needed to build and
repair tanks are being produced
in England for the Soviet Union
Arthur G. Bottomley, ' Labor
Government secretary for over
seas trade, responded by saying
that in trading with Russia Brit
ain has taken care not to send
any military potential goods.
This flurry followed another
over a shipment from the United
States of 45 tons of molybdenum
which the Commerce Department
acknowledged had found its way
to Russia. The metal, important
in hardening some types of steel,
was transshipped in a British
port, but British officials disclaim
There has been no hint of what
tightening-up measures Mr.
Acheson may be preparing for
submission to British Foreign
Secretary Bevin and French For
eign Minister Sehuman.
Some officials privately voiced
surprise that Mr. Truman was
willing to comment. Trade con
trols smack of economic warfare,
which is an awkward subject in
the midst of preparations for the
international tariff-cutting con
ference, scheduled to open Sep
tember 28 at Torquay, England.
Mr. Truman also had some
thing to say about trade from
East to West. He was asked to
comment on the refusal of New
York and Boston longshoremen
to unload cargoes from Russia,
including crabmeat and furs. He
said it is not up to the longshore
men to fix this country’s foreign
