TWbLVK BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.) COUK1EK NEWS MONDAY, MARCH 21, Berlin Economy Completely Split Western Occupation Powers Outfaw Use Of Eastern Marks BERLIN, March 21—f/P)—T h e Western Powers have outlawed the Russian east mark In their sectors of Berlin, splitting the' city's economy completely. The new allied order yesterday, declaring that the Russian currency no longer would be accepted as legal tender, had been expected for tame time. It means that Western Berlin now has one currency—the West mark; and Eastern Berlin has an other—the Soviet East mark. The West mark has been worth abou^ four times as much as the East mark. The Russians earlier made it a crime to possess West marks in their area. The United States, Britain and France did not go that far. They just satd the eastern currency no longer need be accepted In their part of the city. Although the order Is effective Immediately, the Enst murk will still be good In Western sectors for rationed foods ihls month anil will be accepted In April for rent and taxes. Move "Long Overdue" The Western allies said putting Western Berlin on a West-mark only basis was "long overdue" because "grave economic and socia Injustices" have resulted from the dual currency arrangement. The Western city government Is expected to profit by Ihe change Up lo now it had to accept Eas marks in tax payments and pay part of its salaries and other expenses In West marks. The currency changeover may leave some Western Berliners holding a lot of East marks since each person can trade In only 15 East marks lor Western currency. But they can, If they wish, use their East marks on shopping trips In the Soviet sector and in Soviet- occupied areas surrounding Berlin. Such purchases would have to be smuggled by the Russian blockade. Meanwhile, the Russians announced they had begun a "big new repatriation" of German prisoners of war. The United Stales and Britain charged last week that the Soviets had failed to keep promises to return all German prisoners by the end of 1948. Obituaries Easter Seal 'Pinup' Girl Mrs. W, J.
