Negotiatons have been arranged for tomorrow. The union offer provides that instigators of wildcat strikes in work plants be discharged. A union spokesman found the plan unprecedented and predicted it would be acceptable to the Company. There was nothing to indicate settlement of the strike at General Motors involving more than 200,000 workers. General Motors has announced termination of their contract with the union, but negotiations on a new contract are to be resumed today. *************** SITUATION IN GERMANY: Machinery of 30 big German factories have been allocated to Allied countries for reparation. In the American zone, civil administration is to be handed over to the Germans at the end of the year, with Americans retaining control at the highest level. *************** American prosecution at Nuremburg, Germany, showed that Germans planned to attack Russia 5 months before striking and Ribbentrop early in 1940 urged Japan to attack Singapore.
