RED ARMY TAKES MACHINERY NEW YORK, Aug. 3. The Red Army is stripping Vienna, says the pro-Labour newspaper, the New York Post. Officially, it says, the Russians are removing only Nazi property and machinery installed in factories since 1938. Actually, no property is safe. Freight trains are rumbling out of Austria filled with machinery, automobiles, furniture, farm machinery and personal belongings, like linen, lace and draperies. Jews, social democrat workers and concentration camp victims are stripped of their possessions, along with notorious Nazis. Whole factories, operating for years before the anschluss, have been dismantled. Sometimes the Red Army smashed machinery which they l?ad decided to leave behind. The New York Post admits that these happenings could easily be used to promote discord between the Allies and adds that, unfortunately, no honest observer can ignore them.
