49TH YEAR: VOL. 49 — NO. 298 By the school teacher who risked death rather than return to Russia. (Copyright, 1948, King Features Syndicate, Inctn Repro- tures Syndicate, Inc., Reproduction in whole or in part Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn United Nations Has a Home Before It Has a Future A news-reel "shot" last night showed officials of the United Nations and New York City breaking ground for a great array of UN buildings which is expected eventually to cover 17 -acres of the metropolitan East Side— but the picture jarred on me. ..The realities weren't there at all.. More real, to mo, was the thunder of yesterday's newspaper headlines: "Fear Berlin Issue May Wreck UN"; "Explosive Stage Reached With End of Talks"; "Powers Told to Agree or Gel- Out." This morning we find British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin putting the blame on Russia should there be another war. The fact is, the world has come to an impasse at Berlin— and this is a moment when the whole idea of the United Nations looks audacious, if not absolutely foolish. The UN is building a home before it is assured that it has a future at all. And yet, if you take the view that any effort at world organization has to be along the lines of persuasion rather than force there is still a remote chance that the UN will have permanent value. It may succeed where neither the World Court nor the League of Nations succeeded, not because it is superior to its predecessors, but because the hard facts of world politics today are more favorable toward co-operation. The fact is, the world w.as lined up in rival camps, when the two earlier world organizations explored the possibility of peace. But today the world is united against one power, Russia. You could call the UN by any other name and still have a chance- to make it successful, because the situation in manpower and guns is favorable to us. unfavorable to the Russians. Finally, the problem of any world organization is lo get over the propaganda of peace to all countries, thereby increasing the pressure of persuasion on the pnr particular nation which is thinking" of outright war. Use of boycott or United Nations armies is a mere threat lost in the wind. Everyone knows that while UN might clo the talking it would be the individual armies of the sepa••• ate nations that would have to do the fighting should the world go again to war. But the pressure of persuasion is ever present—for Russia, listening to propaganda at work against her all over the world, knows that she stands alone; and, standing alone, she individually would have to light all the rest of us. Maybe'' those fellows who had their picture taken breaking ground for the UN home in New York weren't completely foolish after all. •fc •£- •*.

Love has its way even in revolution. First came the overthrow of the Czar, and the people tasted a few months of freedom under Kerensky. Then came the Bolsheviks under Lenin and Trotsky. Our part of the country was the theatre of the earliest and most violent civil warfare. In the adjoining Don Cossack territory the Whiles first began to battle the Reds.

Moscow, Sept. 28 — (ff>)— The Soviet Press said today British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bcvin's speech to the United Nations assembly indicated he was trying to break up the United Nations. Moscow newspapers paid particular attention to Bevin's dcclara- .tion that the United Nations might have to continue on a regional basis if it cannot go on as a world organization. Nowhere in these dispatches, however, was there any indication of the Soviet union's next step nor any suggestion that the U. S. S. R. might withdraw from the U. N. The Soviet press repeatedly has accused the United States and Britain of seeking to drive a wedge into the U N. One dispatch accused the Western powers were extremely troubled by Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister A. Y. Vishinsky's nropp- slas on disarmament and atomic control, "To categorically reject them." the dispatch said, "would mean self exposure. So British Chief Delegate Bevin delivered a lengthy- speech which can be viewed only as an effort to cover up the refusal to accept the Soviet nroposals by awkward maneuvers." (Vishinsky proposed Saturday that armaments be reduced by one third within a year, and that atomic weapons be outlawed.) Referring to Bevin's remarks on Palestine, Tass said the British foreign secretary "talked about Palestine as if Britain had made a great contribution there, when, as everybody knows, the only tiling Britain contributed to Palestine was hate between the Arabs and France Joins U P ft "i • .5., Britain, Blames Rus PRICE 5c COPY : I present blood-letting -o— to mv post of village school i 1 T\ T ' ,'• T—. .vtlj lltlLV: Uttvujtu Llle fVLtlUCl t'llU teacher.

One day Demyan, who was known in the neighborhood as a foimer officer, was called to report to the local commander. He was asked why he did not join the White forces.

Earl Scrog^in said, however, there is "only a remote possibility" that the man held in Detroit is Pvt. Kenneth K. Speegle, who. is charged with murder in the shooting of Patrolman S. V.

"He answers the general description of Speegle. But if he is actually from Ft. Custer, he is not our man, for Speegle is from Ft. Lewis, Wash. "We are checking every lead we get, however." .Captain Scroggin said Detroit authorities had furnished classifications of fingerprints of the man held there. He added. however. that Arkansas state police do not have Speegle's fingerprints. Yellville, Sept. 21! — (UPl— The search for the ruthless killer of two North Arkansas residents — one of them State Patrolman's. V. Pavatt — had settled down to a methodical checking of hiding places and rumors today. State police reported no "new developments" but expressed the belief that 1he sharp-shooting' slayer is still hiding in the hills and caves of the Arkansas' Ozarks. Pavatl was shot last Saturday as he was about to enter a boaici- ed-up cabin in a routine investigation of several: burglaries. A single shot from the'--cabin wounded him fatally. The body of the killer's second victim — G. D. Crook, f>!;- ycar-old retired railroad man and owner of the cabin — was found crammed ii'l a shallow grave near the cabin. Officers have ronec-ntrated their search on a 2o-.yeur-old service m;.n who has been AWOL from Ft. i'wis.
