ONE UNITED BODY
Allies Asked To Establish Central Government N.Z. Press Association—Copyright Rec. 10 a.m. LONDON, July 31. The Chancellor of Austria, Dr. Carl Renner, appealed to the Allied nations to establish a central government in Vienna. "We are not against occupation or control no matter how severe as long as Austria is governed by one united body. Reconstruction is not possible while the country is divided into four zones."
Dr. Renner accused the four occupying Powers of haying four completely different policies concerning the treatment of , Nazis. "If the Nazis don't like the conditions in one occupied zone," he said, "they move to another until they find a completely safe place. Thousands of them are now living in pleasure resorts and are laughing at us." Vienna, within the city boundaries, has been divided into five zones, writes a correspondent, quoted by the British Official Wireless. The Russians hold all the eastern portion of the city on the left bank of the Danube, with one sector driving a wedge-through the British zone lying to the south. The British zone embodies the old diplomatic quarter and the district of Semering farther to the east. The French control the district lying west of the city, while the Americans hold the north-western areas. The Americans will also control Vienna's main airport. One small area of the centre of the city adjoining the Danube Canal will remain an international zone.
