Tito Refuses To Accept Western Decision
By The Associated Press
Mobs of Yugoslavs hurled rocks at windows of United States,
British and Italian embassies last night in angry protest against the
decision to turn over the city of Trieste to Italian administration.
The joint American-British announcement that withdrawal of
Allied occupation troops from Trieste was made in the hope that
it will spur Italy and Yugoslavia to settle their dispute over the
Adriatic territory.

INSOFAR AS the civil status of
the city itself is concerned, the
Anglo-American decision merely
serves to formalize what has been
a de facto situation since 1948.
Trieste has been governed, and its
economy oriented, almost as
though it were a part of Italy.
It's police force, organized like a
light army, is manned almost en-
tirely by Italians.
Despite a considerable Slovene
population, there has never been
any question about the Italian
nature of Trieste. There is a dif-
ficult-to-solve ethnic question in
