Iron-Clad' Plan Asks Reduced
Forces, Arms, Atomic Control
PARIS-(AP)-A world peace plan for regulation and reduction of
all armed forces and arms, including atomic weapons, was presented to
the United Nations by the United States, Britain and France yesterday.
President Truman, broadcasting from Washington, hailed the
plan as "foolproof" in its ironclad provisions for inspections and veri-
fications and called on Russia to join in reducing the world's stagger-
ing armaments burden.j
r x
UN OBSERVERS were almost certain, however, that Russia would
reject the three-power disarmament scheme because it incorporates a
number of proposals for arms control already turned down by the
Soviets in the UN.
They pointed out that only the inclusion of atomic weapons
in the general reduction of arms and the proposed preliminary
world census of arms were new "
in the three-power proposal..;

The broad plan, announced sim-
ultaneously in Washington, Lon-
don and Paris, is to be presented
in detail here to the United Na-
tions General Assembly. The offi-
cial announcement confirmed U.S.
plans first reported by the Asso-
ciated Press on Monday.
tions said "the United Nations
plan for the international control
of atomic energy and the prohibi-
tion of atomic weapons should
continue to serve as the basis for
the atomic energy aspects of any
general program for the regula-
tion, limitation and balanced re-
duction of all armaments and
armed forces, unless and until a
better and more effective plan can
be devised."
Soviet Russia has rejected
that plan, which the United
States sponsored in the UN. The
Russians' primary objection is to
on-the-spot inspection by inter-
national teams.
The Western peace move, there-
fore, appears designed mainly for
propaganda purposes-to throw
the Russians on the defensive and
nullify any benefits they might ex-
pect from their own peace offen-
sive. The Russians have contend-
ed the idea of unlimited inspection
is just part of an American scheme
to build up a huge spy system.
* * *
A KEY paragraph of the an-
nouncement said:
"The three governments believe
that a workable program should
include criteria according to which
the size of all armed forces would
be limited, the portion of national
production which could be used
for military production would be
restricted, and mutually agreed
national military programs would
be arrived at within the prescribed
limits and restrictions."

York Times said today that
President Truman offered to
support General Dwight D. Ei-
senhower as a 1952 presidential
candidate but that Eisenhower
rejected thei offer.
The chief executive made the
offer during Eisenhoer's visit
to Washington this week, the
Times said.
The offer, the Times said, "ne-
cessarily concerned only the
Democratic nomination" and re-
peated "a similar offer with re-
spect to 1948" which Truman
made to the general at the 1945
Potsdam Conference.
The Truman offer was report-
ed by Arthur Krock, the Wash-
ington correspondent of the
New York Times.
In Washington, Joseph Short
presidential press secretary,
commenting on Krock's dis-
patch, said:
"It is not true."
Short declined to elaborate
in any way.tk

City Elections

seemed bent on tossing out the
yins egardless of party changed
the political complexion of scores
of city administrations in Tues-
day's elections.

In Detroit, Mayor Albert E.
Cobo was re-elected three-to-
one over Edgar M. Branigin, who
had heavy backing from organ-

election, as in the other munici-

political trends.
The Detroit results, however,
again showed that the CIO and

Need Inspectors,
President Says
WASHINGTON-(R)-President Truman challenged Russia last
night to accept a "foolproof" disarmament plan under which United
Nations inspectors would police each country's forces and weapons,
including atom bombs.
That is the path the free world would prefer to take toward real
peace and security, the President said, but added:
"We will do it the hard way if we must-by going forward as we
are doing now, to make the free world so strong that no would-be
aggressor would dare to break the peace."

More Snow,
Bad Win ter
The vicious mid-autumn snow
storm that struck the Midwest this
week subsided a bit yesterday but
deep drifts, great puddles of slush
and more flurries of snow fore-
warned a long, cold winter ahead.
An additional inch was laid onto
the eight-inch blanket of snow
which buried Ann Arbor Tuesday.
However, city snow plows freed the

THE record-breaking fall was
still having drastic results in other
parts of the nation's buffeted mid-
section, the Associated Press re-
ported. St. Louis remained under
a foot of snow while blinding sleet
and stiff winds lashed at Chicago
and churned up 35-foot waves in
Lake Michigan.
The snow was piled deep in
the Upper Peninsula and the
western section of Michigan
while the southeastern part was
plagued by slush. State deaths
resulting from the weather ran
up to at least 38 yesterday, with
{ten persons succumbing to heart
attacks while shoveling snow.
The highways were cleared for
the most part but motorists were
slowed down by skiddy roads. Uni-

The first step in the plan would
be a great inventory, or census, of
each nation's military strength.
This would be followed by cuts
in armaments, and ultimately by
the outlawing of atomic weapons.
HERETOFORE Russia has balk-
ed at the continuing outside in-
spection which Mr. Truman in his
speech and the three nations i
their UN proposal made the basis
of their plan.
The President took note of that
record and asserted
"Any nation which is not will-
ing to agree to this step, and to
carry it out, is not really Inter-
ested in disarmament."
He took note, too, of the "gloomy
history of our negotiations with
the Soviet Union" and said it is
true that "we have experienced
much bad faith, deceit and broken
NEVERTHELESS the effort must
be made because it is "the right
thing to do," Mr. Truman said-
"we cannot permit the history of
our times to record that we failed,
by default."
The President coupled his pro-
posal with an implied promise
that a share of this country's
savings from reduction of the
arms burden would be devoted
to peaceful improvement of the
lot of peoples.
"If that cost could be reduced-
if the burden of armaments could
be lessened, new energies and re-
sources would be liberated for
greatly enlarged programs of re-
construction and development," he
He called that "the only kind of
war we seek - the war against
want and human misery."

THE PRESIDENT laid his main
emphasis on the call for "an hon-
est, continuing inventory of all
armed forces and armaments, in-
cluding atomic weapons."
No country can afford to re-
duce its defenses unless it is
sure the other fellow is reducing
his at the same time," he said.
Mr. Truman gave this outline
of the specific disarmament steps:
"First, we propose a continuing
inventory of all armed forces and
armaments be undertaken., This
inventory would take place in every
country having substantial mili-
tary powe, and it would be check-
ed and verified in each of those
countries by inspectors who are
nationals of other countries, work-
ing under the United Nations.
These inspectors would have auth-
ority to find out what the real
facts are.

An Allied spokesman, Brig.
Gen. William P. Nuckols, declar-
ed "if there is some clarification
. . . that can be obtained fromI
subsequent meetings, perhaps we
are closer (to agreement) than
we think at the moment."
The Allies have insisted that
hostilities must continue until a
full armistice is signed. That
means any buffer zone based on
the battleline would change as the
line changed. The Communist plan
would freeze the buffer zone now
while other armistice details are
worked out.
