Trusteeship fr
Italian Islands
Ba.ckled b y US
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Feb. 9 - The United
States has launched a drive for four-
. power acceptance of its plan fr a
'United Nations trusteeship over It-
aly's colonies and a minimum of
Italian reparations, officials at the
Deputy Foreign Ministers Council
said today.
The Americans are putting up
their arguments to the Russian,
French and British representatives at
the Council, who so far have shown
no enthusiasm for the idea. The
Americans contend that their ob-
ligations under the United Nations
charter require a disinterested, in-
ternational administration for the
Italian colonies and that it offers
the only prospect for a four-power
agreement which must be reached
before an Italian peace treaty can
be signed.
The American plan, first present-
ed at the Foreign Ministers Council
in September after Russia had ex-
pressed its desire to hold a trus-
teeship over Tripolitania, was out-
lined officially for the first time yes-
terday by Secretary of State James
F. Byrnes at a press conference in
ROME, Feb. 9 - Italian Colonial
Office quarters said tonight the

United States trusteeship proposal
for Italian colonies was unaccep-
table to Italy.
An informed source said that the
American proposal was "too com-
plicated" and that an administra-
tion in which so many nations par-
ticipated would be "impractical" and
operate to the disadvantage of the
Stalin ...

men were hurt, and 150 students were
arrested before order was restored.
Block surging Crowd
A drawbridge across the Nile was
raised to prevent the crowd from
pushing to the heart of Cairo, and
fighting broke out at the bridge with
sticks and stones as weapons.
The 1936 British-Egyptian treaty
provided for establishment of a mili-
tary alliance between the two coun-
tries, and for maintenance of British
troops in Egypt for 20 years. Egypt
had asked for evacuation of all for-
eign troops and a revision of the
status of the Sudan, now under joint
British-Egyptian control.
Replying, Britain agreed to under-
take revision of the treaty.
Ambassador Called "Imperialistic",,
Speakers at the mass meeting, how-
ever, asserted it was impossible to ne-
gotiate with British Ambassador
Lord Killearn, who was accused of
being "imperialistic." Speake~s also
declared Egyptian foreign minister
Abdel Hamid-Badawin Pasha was a
"British agent."
Approximately 3,000 persons were
caught within police lines at the Nile
bridge when the span was raised.
After a few minutes the crowd broke
cut, and fighting started between stu-
dents and from 200 to 300 police,
many of whom had clubs. The stu--
dents threw rocks, and some by-
standers joined in.
State CIO Calls
Vet Conference
LANSING, Feb. 9-(IP)-The Mich-
igan CIO will assemble a "CIO Vet-
erans Conference" here Sunday for
the announced purpose of mapping
strategy for a fight for immediate
payment of a state cash bonus to
veterans of World War IL.
The state CIO Council, in con-t
junction with the CIO's United Auto-
mobile Workers Union, called the
conference to draft a "CIO legisla-.
tive program". for submission to the
special ,legislative session. The bonus
is a chief subject.
All CIO unions in Michigan were7
urged by the state council to send
In a statement of policy the con-
cil has protested Governor Kelly's
recommendation that the special
session defer action on a bonus. The
council said the legislature should
make available "sufficient funds to
pay an adequate bonus."
A fund of $51,000,000 for a state
program for veterans previously was
set up in the legislature. The CIO"
says Governor Kely's proposal to set
aside the fund for a future datetand
invest the income fails to meet "im-
mediate needs" of the veteran.

Thomas Assails Pussy Foot-'
Pdicie0s of T rumn Congress


Conservation Is
Nations Warned

By The Associated Press4
DETROIT, Feb. 9--President R. J.
Thomas of the CIO United Auto
Workers today assailed "pussy foot-
ers and fuddy-wuddies" in Congress
and declared that President Truman
was "weak."-.
Thomas, national secretary of the
CIO's Political Action Committee,
told the Michigan PAC, "I feel more
critical politically than I have for
a long time. It is time we began to
do a little thinking about what
course to follow in the future."
He continued, "It's always been
felt that we were the tail of the
Democratic party kite but we're in
a better position today because nei-4
ther party knows definitely whether
we are attached to them.
"We never were out for 30 peri
cent wage boosts; we were only
interested in maintaining the
worker's economic status," the
UAW chieftain added.
"OPA Administrator Bowles is for
Ethat principle of maintaining the

workers' position. as are Secretaries
Wallace. Ickes and Schwellenbach.
Why don't they stand up and say
so?" he asked the 75 Michigan PAC
"To my knowledge, this vital ques-
tion has never come up at a cabinet
meeting. When you ask why, you're
told it has never been on the agen-
da," Thomas continued.
Describing Truman as "weak,"
the UAW official declared, "he
went on the air to, announce his
fact finding .system in the General
Motors and other disputes; why
doesn't ixe go on the air now and
through public pressure force GM
to accept the findings of the fact
Commenting on the CIO's "en-
tr'ance into politics," he said "we
have been driven to this position and
if we ever abandon it we will be
crucified. The thing about which I
feel resentful is that no one is willing
to stand up and say publicly that
they support us in these issues.

An appeal to all nations to "take
immediate and drastic action" for
conservation of wheat and rice sup-
I plies to avoid widespread famines
and death was submitted to the Unit-
ed Nations today by the United States,
Britain, France and China.
The four nations presented the ap-
peal in a resolution to the General
Assembly's steering committee. It is
expected to be brought before a plen-
ary session next week for considera-
tion .-
