Shifted by Truman
Compiled by Merle Mass
From the wires of Associated Press
Political interpreters feel that President Truman shifted an
important American policy in his UN address yesterday, when
he suggested a possible merging of the UN Atomic Energy Com
mission and the UN Commission for Conventional Armaments.
Always before this country has insisted on keeping discussions
of atomic control and reduction of conventional armaments sep
The president told the Assembly a “fool proof” disarmament
plan is needed. Outlawing not only atomic and hydrogen bombs
but cover conventional war weapons as well. The AEC was set
up in 1946, and the Convention on Convertional Armaments was
set up in 1947, both over strenuous Russian protest. The Soviet
Union wanted to deal with both problems under one heading.
President Truman felt the two commissions had not been suc
cessful, and in outlining a plan upon which any successful plan
of disarmament must rest he suggested all kinds of weapons
must be included, any plan must be accepted unanimously, and
must be fool-proof so that no country could violate it.
He said he thought much valuable work had been done by the
two commissions, but that a merging of the two would be more
^ Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Vishinsky did not join in the
applause at the end ®f the President’s speech and declined to
comment on the speech.
“If I had a comment I would have shown some initiative and
made it,” he told reporters.
A Final Red Stand...

The situation of approaching the Manchurian border is delicate, but
informed sdurces believe that South' Korean ROK forces will be allowed
to continue their flight to that point. On the north bank of the Yalu

Trygve Lie and the UN for help in getting a delegation into the United
States to argue its charge of American aggression in Formosa.
“In view of the non-existence of diplomatic relation (with the United
States),” Chou cabled Lie, “please arrange for privileges and immuni
ties due to diplomatic persons.”
In case a delegation is allowed entrance it will be headed by Wu Hsiu
chuan, who is scheduled to beicome Red China’s UN representative if
the Communists ever are granted UN membership.
. . . Yugoslavia’s Deputy Foreign Trade Administer Vladimir Velebit
left for the United States Tuesday in quest of a $400,000,000 loan from
the International Bank to Yugoslavia.
Velebit said in an interview before boarding his plane that Premier
Tito’s government sought the funds—to be paid out over a two-year per

Apparently West Germany is having a hard time financially too, for
word comes from European Payments Union headquarters in The Hague,
The Netherlands, that West Germany has almost exhausted her entire
year’s allotment of credits.
Reports from Frankfurt, Germany, indicate the West Germans are
taking drastic steps to reduce their imports. This is being done to help
save the $20,000,000 remaining of the original total of $320,000,000 as
signed to her.

... will be getting Thanksgiving baskets a little early this year, thanks
to shipments of food, donated by fanners from 17 states. The shipment
left Chicago Tuesday.
The “Friendship Food Ship’’ is the first of the Christian Rural Over
seas Program (CROP) 1950 drive. In three years of existence, CROP
has collected 3,555 carloads of food for distribution in Europe and Asia.
Another ship, headed for Asia, left Seattle Tuesday loaded with wheat,
and it is expected that soon shipments of various commodities will be
sent from both East and West coast ports to Europe and Asia.
Hawaii and Alaska. . .
. . . should both have statehood by Christmas, if the prediction of Sen.
Guy Cordon of Oregon comes true. He said that the bills could have been
passed earlier if pressed by the Administration, and that he will press
for statehood when Congress reconvenes November 27.
Condon formerly advocated only statehood for Hawaii. At this time
he said he felt Alaskan statehood failed to give the territory enough
natural resources from which it could gain revenue for state use. But
he said he now thinks that can be worked out after statehood.
