The moves were disclosed in a speech made by East Zone Deputy Premier and Communist Party boss Walter Ulbricht and printed in full in the official Communist Party newspaper Neues Deutschland.

In highlighting the seriousness of the problem, a Labor Ministry spokesman estimated there were "more than 500,000" prostitutes in red light districts and on the street in this country of 38,000,000 in June last year, and said hard times have caused a steady increase in this number. 

Earlier this week, a group of women Diet members of all political tinges joined in presenting to the Parliament a new bill against prostitution.

Hope Dimmed For Ending Strikes In UK This Week

London, June 10 (CNA-UP) Peace talks to end the 13-day-old British railroad (NOTE-faded text on next line) gloomy atmosphere and dimmed hopes of a weekend settlement.

The stumbling block was scope of the talks - the question of when preliminary "discussions" on the strikers wage demands would end and hard "negotiations" begin.

The three main barriers to a quick rail settlement were:

(1) The government's reluctance to negotiate while the strike continues.

(2) The threat of a heavy counter claim from the non-striking National Union rail-workmen whose 400,000 members are maintaining emergency train service.

(3) The extent of the total bill for any future settlement.

Meanwhile, an equally paralysing dock strike by 20,000 stevedores went into its 19th day but with signs that a compromise might solve a jurisdictional union battle which caused the walkout.

Lie Urges Revision Of UN Charter

(?), Central Norway, June 10 (CNA-UP) Trygve Lie, first secretary general of the United Nations, said today he will go to San Francisco to tell the organisation that its charter needs revising.

Lie's message to the U.N. in San Francisco on the occasion of its 10th anniversary June 30 is that the atomic age makes a revision of the U.N. Charter mandatory.

He said that "apart from all other regards and considerations which support the idea of taking up for discussion next planned in 1945...the U.N. Charter and the work of the United Nations. I am of the view that the new problems, facing us in the atomic age in which we live, require enlargements, changes, amplifications or new interpretations of the charter."

Lie said that "the world opinion demands that atomic weapons, the atom bomb and the hydrogen bomb, must be laid under international control. The threat against humanity from those all devastating arms must be brought to an end. An international control may be established outside of the United Nations, but in my opinion the U.N. must in any case play a central and ruling role."

Malik Handed Points For Discussion On Peace Negotiations In London

London, June 10 (CNA-UP) The drive to "normalization" of Russo-Japanese relations showed signs of slowing down today.

Authoritative sources said it would "take some time" for Moscow to study "points for discussion" suggested by Japan at last Tuesday's session of the Soviet-Japanese peace parleys here.
