TUESDAY, MARCH 22, 1949 BLYTHEVJLLE <ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGB THRJ* ted Concession In Marks Seen Soviets Planning . No Retaliatory Move Against Money Ban | BERLIN, March 22. M>)—Quali- observers today viewed as an ortant concession a Russian lenient concerning Hie West's on Russian-sponsored currency I' the Eastern Zone of Germany. 1 Col. Alexander Jelisar^v, acting lussian commandant of Berlin, last night the Vvestern move ould "deepen the split in Berlin," that the Sovi '• military ad- limstration does not Intend to •strict the use of the East, marks ow held by Western Berlincrs. [This indicated the Russians \vou1d lot prevent western Berllners from vending the East marks they now •old either in the Soviet Sector of lerHn or the Russian Zone of Gerany. It also indicated the Russians did lot intend to Introduce a new East liark which would be refused to [Western Berliners. Many had fear- that the Russians, in retaliation the western allied move outlaw- lig their currency, might pull a lurrency switch of tlwir own which ould wipe out East mark holdings of Western Berllners and even nch East mark bank accounts as leople in the Western Sector still lad. The Soviet announcement has liewed as an important concession this reason, too: Apparently liners in possession of West liarks still can trade them for the |heaper East marks to be taken over he line for use in ration-free stores r the Soviet sector. East marks also ould pay Soviet Zone farmers for lood smuggled through the Block- Ide. The official Soviet Army news- aper, Taeglische Rundschau, put headline In Jelisarov's statelient: "No Soviet Counter-Measures the Expense of the Population." Col Jelisarov said the Western would hurt the people and the conomy of the western Zones, but cannot Inflict any serious preju- |lice" on Soviet Zone currency.
