The Moscow radio said 18 Polish leaders, instead of the 16 reported by other sources, had been afrested in Poland last March. They were accused of diversionist activity against the Red army. Moscow said a Soviet prose cutor had entfed his inquiry into the case. The brief Moscow report did not identify the 18 Poles nor ex plain the discrepancy between this number and the 16 reported by Polish source*. Observers regarded it as no mere coincidence that Moscow should report on court proceed ings in connection with the Polish case a day before Big Three and Polish representatives in Moscow were to open a conference. A Moscow dispatch said the conferees probably would set up a new unity government for Poland, with Stanislaw Mikolajc zyk of the London delegation as premier. Mikolajczyk was for merly premier of the Polish exile government. 3d and 7th Armies Will Occupy Germany WASHINGTON.

Jurisdictional fights between , the two unions could paralyze all ! reconversion work in the Detroit area, labor experts say. ! The AFL served notice on the Chrysler Corp.. owners of the plant, that the “building will never be built In the first in stance” unless the corporation complies with the following ul timatum "That th»* (hrynler Corp., aNMurr* the AFL now, that AFL , member* will be contracted for to make the original instal lations of machinery and equip ment In the new building when it I# completed."

Kiskadden, a member of the Board of Commerce group urging the site’s adoption. “I believe that virtually the last vestiges of opposition will disappear within a few days when we complete a map showing the pattern of air travel over that vicinity,” Kiskadden said. “The map will show, I believe, that most residents of the area will be less disturbed by airplanes than they are now by the planes which fly over their homes en route to and from the present city airport.” A survey by The Times indi cated that not more than 75 homes would be within sight of the Wyoming-8 Vi Mile port. About 45 of these would be Oak Park homes which are within the general boundaries proposed (Wyoming-10 Mile, Greenfield and B’a Mile). However, the 45 homes are in a section that would not be close to runways or buildings and so could be allowed to re main. FEW FARM HOUSES Except for a half dozen farm houses and bungalows, along the bordering roads, the only homes in sight of the port would be those in the »ection of Huntiogton Woods near 10 Mile and Coolidge. About 15 of these are in sight of the area, although most are two to four blocks from the 10 Mile road border. Airport com mittee officials pointed out that the runways would not extend to 10 Mile and that the administra tion buildings would be at least one mile from all borders of the field. WOULD RETURN FUNDS The 45 Oak Park houses that would remain would be about half of those now standing on the air port site. Representatives of Oak Park met yesterday with members of the board of commerce committee to discuss the effect choice of the site would have on their village. The committee assured them that Oak Park bond issue funds, w’hich have been spent in improving the site, would be returned to the village through the condemnation proceedings. Except for the Coolidge-10 Mile sector, Huntington Woods homes are separated from the airport site by the Rackham golf course and the Detroit zoo. WOULD FIND BUYERS Kiskadden declared he believed that few, if any, Huntington Woods homes would depreciate in values because of the airport. “I believe that any one desir ing to sell a home in that area will find eager purchasers among the airline executives who will wish to live close to the airport,” he said.

At the request of Sigler, Cal houn County Circuit Judge Blaine W. Hatch ordered Miss Welker held under $5,000 bond. The judge asked Miss Welker if she had anything to say and she re plied: “Well, I’ve always co-operated with the grand Jury.” ASKS SHE BE HELD Sigler interjected that it would serve the grand jury’s purposes best if she were held and added that this would be for her own protection. The prosecutor referred to Miss Welker as "Fleisher’s sweetheart” and said she had been seen with him since the grand jury started to probe Hooper's murder.
