Truman Visits
Troopson, n on
Of Occupation
By The Associated Press
President Truman put aside the mo-
mentous duties of the Big Three Con-
ference in Potsdam temporarily to-
day and visited thousands of Ameri-
can troops in a swing through the
Rhine valley to get a first hand view
of the American, occupation zone.
In brief impromptu talks the pres-
ident promised to help the troops find
the United States "as you like it and
want it to be" when they return home
and expressed the determination to
implement the ideas of his "great
predecessor," Franklin D. Roosevelt.
In less serious vein, he shook hands
with hundreds of GI's, scores of them
from his native Missouri, climbed in
and out of his touring car dozens of
times for reviews and informal chats,
and played the piano in jazzy style.
Afterward he commented: "A damn
good piano."
Looking fresh and happy - despite
the 97 degree heat which wilted some
others in his entourage, the president
covered a 49-mile route after a 90-
minute flight from Potsdam in the
plane, "Sacred Cow."
Secretary of State Joseph Byrnes
and Brig. Gen. Harry Vaughan, the
president's military aide, flew in a
separate C-54 transport. Gen. Eisen-
hower accompanied the party on the
Bell, Workers
Get Pay Raise
WASHINGTON, July 26--0P)-The
War Labor Board's National Tele-
phone Commission awarded a three
dollar weekly increase in starting
rates for nearly 6,000 traffic employes
of the Michigan Bell Telephone Com-
The Commission also increased top
rates from three dollars to five dollars
for the various classification of em-
ployes. It reduced from nine to eight
years the time scheduled for progress-
ing from the starting to the top rate.
Affected are more than 4,700 oper-
ators, 200 dining service workers,
about 1,000 central office clerks, sup-
ervisors and other employes repre-
sented by the Michigan Telephone
Traffic Employes Federation, Inc.

returned to Ann Arbor May 23. He
went to the Philippines in 1940 to
teach at the University of Manila.
The Tribune quoted the condi-
tions for disposal of "remnants of the
American fleet and military facili-
ties," as laid down by Rear Admiral
Tanetugu Sosa in the magazine
Meiho last year.
American naval vessels and air-
craft would be confiscated by
Japan, Sosa said, and the United
States should pay indemnity, at
construetion cost, for scuttling or
deliberate damaging of any ves-
Under the Japanese regime, expen-
ses incurred in taking over ships,ein-
cluding expenses in bringing them
home or disposing of them, would be
paid by the United States.
Ocean liners would be handled in a
way similar to that of war vessels,
and naval arms and ammunition
would be confiscated, Sosa continued.
Japan planned to eliminate
American naval facilities, including
naval stations, yards, arsenals,
schools and other training organ-
izations, and to destroy private
shipyard facilities, except those for
coastal and river craft.
American steel and oil production
would be allowed only with restric-
tions, Sosa said.
To insure adherence of the United
States to the conditions listed, the
nation would be kept under strict
surveillance for more than ten years
after the war and perhaps indefi-
nitely, he continued.
As for the economic future of the
United States, Yahei Nisiya, expert
on financial affairs, said that curren-
cies to be issues and government
bonds to be floated would be "purely
financial instruments, not market-
able domestically."1
Private banking, monopolistic
trusts, cartels, and industries, and
capitalistic methods in agriculture
would be banned, according to Nisi-
ya's plan.
Stock market speculation would be
given up and labor unions disbanded,
if Japan had her way. Workers
would be given a definite social
Nisiya pointed out that Japan is
the only country with a political
authority free from any economic in-
fluence and that Germany is aiming
at this pure sovereignty, which would
be initiated in various sections of
the world after the downfall of Great
Britain and the United States.
15,000 Acrts Ruined
The Japanese say 15,000 acres of
Tokyo have been devastated by bomb-
ing and so they are going to plant
vegetable gardens on them.
Furthermore, the Japanese appar-
ently figure that Tokyo has been so
well burned over by Superforts that
they won't need water reservoirs or-
iginally built for fire protection.

The highway bill was not further
