Plane Issue
In New Note
Future Appeal
To UN Possible
WASHINGTON-(A')-The Bal
tic plane dispute with Russia
reached a stalemate yesterday wit]
renewed American charges, tha
s the Soviets are solely responsibl
for the loss of the Navy privatee
and its crew of 10 men.
,, A new note to Moscow accuse
Russia of flouting its internation
al responsibilities in dealing witl
the dangerous episode. It implie
strongly at the same time tha
j this government does not intend
to press the dispute further nov
by means of more complaints to
the Kremlin.
* * *
THE WAY WAS left open for
a possible future appeal to the
United Nations or action througi
some other channel.
"It is clearly impossible to
resolve this issue so long as the
Soviet government refuses to
base its position upon the facts
in the case," Moscow was told.
"The Soviet government must
however, bear the responsiblitit3
both for the action of its ai
force and for the manner with
which it has dealt with this in-
cident."
* * *
THE FOURTH communication
in the exchange was delivered in
" Moscow by Ambassador Allan G
Kirk and made public by the
State' Department. Replying tc
the Russian note of April 18, which
was in response to the original
ti American protest over the plane,
the State Department:
1. Declared again that the only
American military plane in the
Baltic Area at the time was the
Navy privateer patrol craft and
not an Army B-29 bomber as
Moscow contended.
2. Reiterated that the Navy
plane was unarmed and was never'
over Soviet occupied territory.
3. Charged Moscow failed to'
carry out a careful investigation
and insisted on an "erronious ac-
count."
GStudy Gives
West But Four
Years To Arm
Report Russia To
Top U.S. Strength
WASHINGTON - (A) - The
Defense and State Departments
have decided that the western
powers have at most about four
years to build up their combined
military strength against Russia.
This conclusion, it was learned
yesterday, is based on a careful
study of all available information
about Russian armament produc-
tion, including atomic weapons.
The study indicates to top offi-
cials that Russia will reach a
dangerously well-armed state,
with a margin of power over that
of the United States alone, by
1954.
* ~* *
SECRETARY OF STATE Ache-
son is expected to emphasize this
point in his discussion with west-
ern foreign ministers at London
during the next two weeks. His
aim is to get all the western na-
tions to enter fully into the joint

defense program already laid out
by military leaders of the North
Atlantic Treaty Nations.
He is prepared to insist that
the United States alone cannot
possibly do the job. He believes
that only the combined efforts
of North America and Western
Europe can keep pace with the
growth o f Soviet military
strength pow that Russia is
manufacturing atomic weapons.
In addition some officials con-
tend that German factories should
be employed to turn out non-
combat types of equipment need-
ed by the western armies, such as
transport vehicles.
BECAUSE THERE is a sense
of eventual if not immediate cri-
sis in this argument, some admin-
Istration officials privately ex-
presd concern yesterday that
President Truman's declared op-
timism about the world situation

Klaus Fuchs
Congress Continues
Atom Investigations
WASHINGTON- (P) --There
were signsyesterday that the FBI
may soon be able to delve deeper
into the sensational Fuchs atmoic
spy case.
The British government, it was
reported, has now agreed to give
American FBI agents limited ac-
cess to question Dr. Klaus Fuchs,
the British scientist who was con-
victed of betraying atomic data
to Russia.
*I * *
OFFICIALS HERE said the Bri-
tish agreement--capping months
of unexplained delay-may pro-
duce leads on other Soviet spies
in this country.
The FBI, however, was un-
derstood to want unrestricted
access to Fuches and the Bri-
tish limitation may be regarded
as unsatisfactory.
Dr. Fuchs, now serving a 14-
year sentence in England for vio-
lating the British Official Secrets
Act, worked on atomic secrets in
the United States during and af-
ter World War II.

INFORMANTS who asked their
names withheld told newsmen that
"as of now" the British and Amer-
icans working on the Fuchs case
are cooperating.
Meantime the atom bomb
came in for renwed attention in
investigations unrelated to the
FBI probe. These were the de-
velopments:
1. William Remington, 32-year-
old Comerce Department official,
twice a target of Congressional
investigations, told the House un-
American activties yesterday that;
he did not know about the A-Bomb{
Project when he was working in
the War Production Board.
* * *
REMINGTON said he had heard
about the Army's Manhattan Pro-
ject-the code name for the se-
cret wartime project-but didn't1
know it was developing an A-
Bomb.
Two witnesses testified Thurs-
day the knew Remington as a
Communist. He swore he was nev-
er a Red.
2. Senate investigators were re-
ported seking data on Senator Mc-
Carthy's charge that State Depart-
ment employes helped feed atom-
ic secrets to Russia early in 1945
in the "Amerasia case."
THE WISCONSIN Republican
himself was priming a double-
barreled new attack in his cam-
paign against alleged Communism
in the Truman administration--
and Democrats were ready to fire
back.
Administration lieutenants told
newsmen on Capitol Hill they are
ready to uncork "something new"
in the way of a counter barrage

U.S. Claims,
Reds .Have
Prisoners
BONN, Germany - (2'- Anti-
Communist feeling surged acros
West Germany yesterday as the
stunned populace realized the full
import of Russia's announcement
that all German war prisonerE
have been returned.
Chancellor Konrad Adenauer
bitterly charged that 1,500,000
Germans - including "tens of
thousands of deported civilians"-
are still missing in the Soviet
Union. He demanded, in the name
of humanity, that the Kremlin ac-
count for their fate. The Chancel-
for made a special appearance be-
fore the West German parlia-
ment.
* * *
U.S. HIGH Commissioner John
J. McCloy declared at his Frank-
furt headquarters that Russia has
failed to account for "many hun-
dreds of thousands of German
prisoners of war."
"I think the world should
know what happened to them
and to the many thousands of
German civilians who also dis-
appeared into the Soviet Union,"
McCloy said.
U.S. officials in Frankfurt said
McCloy and U.S. Secretary of
State Dean Acheson will discuss
the German war prisoner situa-
tion when they meet in Paris Sun-
day.
STATE DEPARTMENT officials
in Washington labelled Russia's
announcement, made Thursday
through the Tass News Agency,
"fantastic and absurd." They esti-
mated the Soviets are still holding
"at least" 200,000 German troops
in forced labor and prisoner of
war camps.
Tass said the last group of war
prisoners - 17,538 of them - had
been returned to Germany. Ade-
nauer used Soviet figures to sup-
port his declaration that 1,500,000
are missing.
The Chancellor said that in 1945
Tass reported 3,500,000 Germans
held in Russia. Thursday's an-
nouncement said 1,939,063 had
been repatriated. He said that still
leaves more than 1,500,000 unac-
counted for.
The announcement plunged
hundreds of thousands of German
homes into mourning unparalleled
since the last days of the war. It
also brought forecasts from West
German leaders that the Russians
had spelled the end of the Com-
munist party in Germany.
Senate Group
Slashes Grant
WASHINGTON - (') - The
Senate Finance Committee yes-
terday slashed away most of the
increases which the House had ap-
proved in federal grants to the
states for public assistance to
needy persons.
The action was taken as the'
committe virtually completed its
work on a House bill revamping
the government's vast Social Se-
curity System.
The committee also disclosed it
had agreed to an even broader ex-
tension of coverage under the
old-age and survivors' insurance
program than it previously an-
nounced.

It raised to 8,000,000 the addi-
tional persons for whom coverage
will be compulsory. This was done
by including, among others, 1,000,-
000 or more farm workers and
"borderline" agricultural laborers.
