Vatican City, July 8, (UP)—The

among ihe Saints of the Roman
Catholic Church today after the

A fanfare of silver trumpets ech-
oed through the spacious basilica

In Red Zone
Vienna, July 8, (UP)—A roundup
of 54,000 non-Austrians in the Rus-
tian occupation zone of Austria
began 'today with signs that the
task- had scarcely started by the
deadline fixed in a Soviet order
for their ouster.
The Russian occupation com-
mand announced yesterday that
the foreigners in Austria, mostly
“Volksdeutsche” or persons of Ger-
man descent, customs or sympathy,
were to be expelled by 6 a.m. to-
The Vienna railroad stations
were almost deserted this morn-
ing, and no signs were apparent
that a mass ejection from Austria
was going on.
Government officials said they
believed the roundup would be dif-
ficult, because many persons prob-
ably fled into hiding or into the
ether Allied zones after the Soviet
order was announced by radio
A government spokesman said
most of the persons affected were
nationals of surrounding countries
who speak German and whose
sympathy apparently were with the
Reich. Most of them entered Aus-
tria last year when they were or-
dered out of such countries as
Hungary and Czechoslovakia.
The government was understood
to have no objections to the gen-
eral idea of moving out such per-
sons. But it was disconcerted and
displeased by the manner in which
the Russians were going about it.

The Arab higher committee
lashed out at Mr. Truman in the
first official Arab retort to his
statement that the United States
desired the immediate admission
of 100,000 more Jews to Palestine.
The Committee said the ' presi-
dent, \ if he were sincere in his
solicitude for the welfare of the
Jews, should begin his charity for
them at home, admitting them to
jthe United States.
[ Mr. Truman has made life in
Palestine more difficult by his
“empty, irresponsible statements,”
the higher committee said in a
public statement. The President
spoke in conection with the Anglo-
American commission’s recommen-
dations for Palestine, including the
admission of 100,000 Jews.
(Unconfirmed press reports
reached London that the Arab
higher committee was preparing
a formal warning that 400,000,000
with the support of Moslems, in
the Middle East, would oppose by
force if necessary any attempt to
send 100,000 Jews to Palestine.
They said the warning was discuss-

Despondent over a heart condi-

understood to be hopeful of un-
tangling the snarl over whether
the foreign ministers shall lay
down ironclad rules for the full

Time after time in the three
weeks of the present big four

the role of compromiser able to

Talk in conference quarters over

—Howard Hugnes, multi-million-

chance to survive today after he
crashed in his new army photo-
graphic plane on its initial flight.
The handsome, 40-year-old air-
plane builder, who also found time
to make movie queens of the late
Jean Harlow and voluptuous Jane
Russell, was testing his super-fast
XF-11, which he designed and built
for the army.
Eight minutes after the takeoff
last nignt, the plane apparently
developed motor trouble and earn?
down in the center of a swanky
residential district. The plane
struck two homes and plowed into
a. $100,000 mansion, setting off - a
series of fires and explosions that
rocked the neighborhood.
Doctors at Good Samaritan Hos-

critical condition” His injuries .

“The iilm was believed to show
only the disposition of the target
