qualified government source said to-

dications the move would touch off
a widespread diplomatic battle for
control of the strategic Holy Land.
Arab sources inLondon said the
Arab. countries surrounding Palestine
would press instead for complete in-
dependence of the tiny country-
and' it was suggested that Egypt'
would ask for trusteeship if the in-
dependence move failed.
Diplomatic quarters said Russia,
which long has urged that the British
get out of Palestine and let Jews and
Arabs settle their own problems,
could be expected to oppose British
Trusteeship. The United States,
building an oil pipeline across Pales-
tine, could be expected to favor it,
While the Jewish Agency for Pal-

spokesman said Holy Land Jews

Churchill had urged in effect that

The decontrolled grains are wheat,
rye, corn, oats, feed oats, mixed feed

The board directed reestablishment
of price ceilings on flaxseed and by-

In the case of each item on which
ceilings were ordered restored, the
board found that
1. Prices have risen unreasonably
above June 30 ceilings, plus any sub-
sidy which was being paid them.
2. Supply is short.
3. Price control is "practicable, en-

These were the yardsticks set by

WASHINGTON, Aug. 20.-()P)-
The Price Decontrol Board warned
the dairy industry tonight that it
will clamp price control back on milk
and dairy products as it did on meat,
if prices go up.
Chairman Roy L. Thompson,.in a
broadcast plea for public support of
the Board's unanimous decisions on
price control, he declared that so
far dairy products have not risen
unreasonably above former ceilings
plus the amount of federal subsidies.
r Shortages will be inevitable,
Thompson said, but the three-mem-
ber board felt that any doubts should
be resolved in favor of the "stable
free market toward which we are all
working." For that reason, he added,
it was decided to givg dairymen "a
while longer to prove that dairy pro-
ducts will not rise unreasonably in
a free market."
FIELDING H. YOST-who died at his home yesterday, shoh here in a characteristic pose. The man who
had done more than anyone else to put Michigan o n the athletic map passed away suddenly. His career
at Michigan began in 1901, and actively ended in 1940. His tenure as head football coach ended in 1929
when he turned over the reins to Harry Kipke, one of his All-Americans. Yost-coached Michigan teams
won 164 games, lost 29 and tied 10.

Italian treaty preamble to give her
credit for a better war record, but
the Italian political and territorial
commission of the peace conference
failed to endorse her memorandum.

preamble modifications, however,

In addition to the document dis-
cussed by the commission during the
day, members of the Italian delega-
tion released tonight memoranda on
the treaty clauses themselves. These
new notes sought a softer peace for
Italy and discussed at length Italy's
frontiers-to-be with Yugoslavia and
the proposed free territory of Trieste.
One note urged the establishment
of an Italian-Yugoslav frontier east
of the "French Line" from Gorizia
northward, to give Italy the Upper

future Trieste-Austria rail line "so
as not to let one and the same state

This note also urged construction
of a new rail line to assure Yugo-

of Gorizia, leaving the already exist-
ing lines to Italy; inclusion of West-

islands of Pola, Brioni and Bussino in

The name of Fielding Yost has

Yugoslav Attack Denounced
The official American view that the
Yugoslav attack on an American
plane is an "outrageous performance"
was expressed by Undersecretary of
State Dean Acheson, who is in
charge at the State Department dur-
ing Secretary Byrnes' absence in
His voice edged with anger, the
usually mild-mannered Acting Sec-
retary adopted the unusual practice
of permitting his indictment to be
quoted directly, and went on to say
that the incident was not one to be
expected from a friendly nation.
Official Protest Revealed
He made public at his news con-
ference a "most emphatically" word-
ed official protest against the action
and the attitude of the responsible
Yugoslav officials, plus a stiffly put
"demand" for assurance that there
will be no repetition.
The note dealt primarily with an
attack on an American Army trans-
port plane Aug. 9 which was fired
upon by Yugoslav fighters and forced
to crash land in a cornfield after be-
ing forced off its course by bad wea-
ther. One passenger, apparently not
an American, was wounded.
But it included also a reference to
reports from Trieste that "a second
United States plane en route to Italy
from Austria is missing after having
last reported itself under machine
gun attack." Acheson said that plane
has not been located.

(4)-M4arshal Tito, Premier of Yugo-

broadcast by the Belgrade radio that
an American transport forced down
in Yugoslavia on Aug. 9 had been
lost in the clouds.
Tito declared that Yugoslavia de-
sires peace, "but not at any price."
The broadcast said that Tito was
an eyewitness to the forcing down
of the American plane on Aug. 9,
explaining that he was vacationing
in Slovenia in the region "where the
American plane landed."
