independence of Moscow.
They hinted their willingness to deal with the west as well as the
east on a basis of peaceful cooperation and equality, and revived the
Moscow-derided pirject of a Balkan federation.
Outwardly the Yugoslav party leaders continued to hold out the
olive branch by declaring they stood for "strengthening and further
developing tight cooperation with the Soviet Union" and with the
"people's democracies" of the other Soviet satellites.

UN Is Peae
The United Nations was not
established to secure peace, Hen-
ry Bretton, of the political science
department, asserted yesterday.
Speaking to members of the
student's United Nations Council,
Bretton said that the UN was
meant to act as a forum, a step
toward world government.
"We can't ask nations to give
up their sovereignty at the front
door," he stated. The purpose of
the Council is to begin at the
"back door" by handling phases
of world government that can be
settled without resistance.
Such items as international
health, post, transportation, stud-
ent exchange, gas warfare (many
issues with which the League of
Nations dealt) are of interest to
all nations. If the UN continues
with phases such as these, unco-
operative nations, such as Russia,
might find in time that it is de-
priving themselves of advantiages.
"We have given up some sov-
ereignties and we will give up
Bretton pointed out that the
"UN cannot stop an armed con-
flict at the present time" and that
we don't expect it to make peace
between any of the big four in
case of war.

These declarations were con-
tained in an eight-point program
which Yugoslav Communist lead-
ers have drawn up for the fifth
congress of the party July 21. Its
publication in the party organ,
Borba, came only a few hours af-
ter the Yugoslav Communist Party
had denounced as lies and slander
a Communist Information Bur-
eau statement calling for Tito and
his chief aides to change their
course or lose their leadership.
The fourth flank of the party
program espousing a Balkan bloc
called for "uniting the Albanian
and Bulgarian peoples and the
Yugoslav people on the principle
of national equality."
The eight - point Yugoslav
Communist Party progranm de-
clared for the continued "co-
operation of the federated

in the struggle of democratic,
anti-imperialistic forces of the

-Bulgaria hopefully assumed the'
role of innocent onlooker today in

of Yugoslavia and the Moscow
This was the interpretation
most generally placed here on the
political double talk which cane
out of Sofia.
The Bulgarian government,
which the Communists control,
said the "sound foundation" of
Bulgaria's relations with Yugo-
slavia are unshaken. But the peo-
ple's front, which the Communists
also control, approved the Comin-
form resolution denouncing the
Communist leadership in Mar-
shall Tito's Yugoslavia.
Sit on Fence
Washington diplomats said that
it is Bulgaria's evident determ-
nation to sit on the fence apd try
to wait out the storm in the hope
of not being struck by any stray

ance most likely will be duplicat-

That would apply particularly to
Albania, for the Communist lead-
ership in Yugoslavia today called
for creation of a bloc consisting of
Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Albania.
That proposal along with others
will be submitted to the Yugoslav
Communist Party meeting July 21
when the showdown between Mar-
shal Tito and Marshal Stalin may
reach its most critical phase.
If the Yugoslavs go through
with their suggestions for creat-
ing such a Balkan Bloc-contrary
to Russia's evident opposition to
such sub units in her satellite sys-
tem-both Bulgaria and Albania
will be placed in the spot of having
to choose sides.
While their choice would seem
to lie on the side of Russia as the
great power, Tito, if Moscow can
not bring him under control in
the meantime, would be a tough
opponent to have right on the
doorstep for either country.
On GOP' Plans
ALBANY, N.Y., June 30-(P)--
Gov. Thomas E. Dewey promised
tonight that if he is elected Presi-

Washington and "strengthen the
fundamentals of freedom that
have made America the greatest
nation in the world."
Dewey made the pledge in an
address to 4,000 Albany and Rens-
selaer County Republicans, who
gathered in capitol park to we-
come him back as the GOP nom-
inee for President.
Standing halfway up the capi-
tol steps, Dewey said that in his
five and one-half years as gov-
ernor he had cleaned up 20 years'
"accumulation" of "cobwebs" of
Democratic state administrations.
He said he intended to clean up
