Japanese Accept

Chiang 's


Hurley Will Try To Smooth Central
Government, Communist Differences
By The Associated Press
CHUNGKING, Friday, Aug. 17-Reliable reports said today that the
commander of all Japanese forces in China had sent word to Generalissimo
Chiang Kai-Shek accepting Chiang's terms for arranging the surrender
of the enemy.
At the same'time it was learned on good authority that U. S. Ambassa-
dor Patrick J. Hurley was prepared to fly to Yenan in an attempt to induce

communist leader Mao Tze-Tung to
tlement of differences between the
ment which hold the threat of civil
War Contracts
Felt in Detroit
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, Aug. 16-The full sweep
of war production cessation began to
appear today as the Detroit Ordnance
district call it quits on $1,500,000,-
000 in contracts.
Immediate cancellation of con-
tracts to that total figure was an-
nounced by the Army. It applied to
the Detroit industrial area.
An estimate on the number of af-
fected workers was not available, but
the Army Air Forces said its cancel-
lation orders went to 700 prime con-
tractors who have been making air-
plane parts and equipment.
Further cancellations were expect-
ed for the Detroit area from Wtight
Field in Ohio.
Many thousands of workers had
been affected in previous cancella-


come to Chunking and discuss set-
Communists and the central govern-
There was good reason to believe
that the terms of the Sino-Russian
treaty, when disclosed, will have an
important bearing on China's inter-
nal problems. Censorship has pre-
vented publication of the terms here.
Representative to Yushan
As for ending the fighting with the
Japanese, Lt. Gen. Yasutsugu Oka-
mura was said to have agreed to send
a representative to Yushan in north-
eastern Kiangsi Province to take ord-
ers from Gen. Ho Ying-Chin, the
Chinese field commander.
Ho is expected to insist that Aka-
mura instruct his troops to surrender
only to duly accredited Allied repre-
sentatives, thus preventing them from
turning over their arms or themselves
to Chinese Communists.
The acceptance report came on
the heels of a disclosure by American
commanders in China that U. S. Army
Air Force units will undertake large
scale redeployment of Chinese troops
to facilitate the disarming and in-
terning of the Japanese and the im-
plementing of the surrender terms.
Communist Defiance
The statements by the American
commanders were ,made as Chinese
Communists continued their open de-
fiance of the Chiang government, and
unofficial reports said clashes had
already occurred between Chiang's
forces and the'Communists near the
key coastal cities of Tsingtao and
Akamura reportedly told Chiang
that the bulk of Japanese troops had
already withdrawn from Nanking,
where the Chinese plan to reestab-
lish their capital, and that a small
force of Japanese was left in the
city to maintain peace and order un-
til the arrival of Chinese national
Use of American planes in the re-
deployment was disclosed by Lt. Gen.
Albert C. Wedmeyer, Commanding
General of U. S. Forces in China, and
his air commander, Lt. Gen. George
Stratemeyer, at their first press con-
ference since the Japanese surrender

Radio Future
In Television,
FM - Adams
CBS Program Chief
Says Field Growing
"The future of radio lies in FM
and television broadcasts," Wendell
Adams, a program director for the
Columbia Broadcasting System, :aid
in an interview.
According to Adams, it is possible
to have ten times as many FM sta-
tions as we now have in the United
States. "This would open up a tre-
mendous field for interested people
with the proper training and back-
ground," he said.
Proper training, according to Ad-
ams, consists of work with a small
station or radio courses, particularly
when there is an opportunity to put
theoretical training to the test, as in
the student programs of the Univer-
sity Broadcasting Service.
Pronouncing the future of radio
"very promising," he said, "the thing
to keep in mind is that radio is a
young people's game."
A radio conference yesterday mark-
ed the end of a series held by experts
sent by CBS to lecture before radio
classes of the Department of Speech
this summer.
