"The first and most important j step toward universal human free- ' dom," continues the gent irom the Land of the Bear, "is a revolution by the people in Soviet Russia " Boldyrcft calls his outfit Common Cause, Inc..

Strom Thurmond, Governor of South Carolina, is one of the most distinguished Americans to seek the office of President. His record as a Citizen of South Carolina has been a most distinguished one. Upon graduation from college he has served his people as a school teacher, county superintendent of education, State Senator, Circuit Judge and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of his State. On the clay war was declared against Germany he obtained leave of absence from his position as Circuit Judge and entered upon active duty April 17, 1942. He was in active combat in Europe and upon the defeat of Germany was transferred to the Pacific Theatre where he was serving when the war against Japan terminated. He was wounded in action against the enemy on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. Among the decorations, awards and medals received for his war service are: Legion of Merit. Bronze Star, Army Commendation Ribbon, Purple Heart, Presidential Distinguished Unit Citation. Bronze Arrowhead. Five Battle Stars for campaigns in Europe, the Cross of Military Service by United Daughters of the Confederacy. Cross of the Officer of the Order of the Crown by the Belgian Government.

A British-Americn spokesman told reporters this was the sense of a note delivered by the Western powers to Argentine Foreign Ministers Juan Alilip Bramuglia, who has been heading up a six- nation effort to mediate the East- West deadlock in the United Nations Security Council over Berlin. The spokesman said the note primarily was a restatement of the basic principles the Western powers would like lo see embodied in a security council settlement of the Berlin stalemate. This indicated strongly the Western powers are not prepared to enter any direct negotiations with Russia over Berlin, which is what tilt- Kremlin wants. , There was, however, no immediate indication of Russia's al- Slilude on this idea. This, it is assumed, is because Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky is wailing for instructions from the Kremlin. He transmitted to Moscow Fiiday a set of questions put to him by Bramuglia, informants said. Bramuglia saw Dr. Philip Jessup ot the United States, Sir Alexander Cadogan of Britain, and Alexandra Pararii of France \-es- |terday and asked them a number of similar questions. Earlier, an American spokesman .said the Western powers had informed the security council's "neutral six" that no" mediation on the Berlin crisis could succeed unless the Russians lifted the blockade first. The Western po.siuon was clarified yeslerday during three interview.-; tin- Western representatives had with Argentine Foreign Minister Juan Bramuglia. who'prescnl- eti the "neutrals" attempt at a compromi.se.

Methodist Young People Install New Leaders great industries for the purpose of iling political strikes in behalf 3f the Soviet Union. Communists iid just thai here during World War II prior to the time Hitler :itlacked Russia. "We must particularly select for major concentration," Winston :old the convention, "such industries as steel, auto, mining, mari- ,imc, electrical and railroad. Within these industries we must pursue a policy of concentration in ey industrial towns and key plants and departments." H is the old Communist theory that if you get a firm .qrip on the toe you can control the foot and maybo. the leg as well. Winston's report was not all good news for the comrades. Too many American Communists don't want to work in the heavy, sweaty industries, it seems. Winston said a lot of them will have to be persuaded to quit their light industry jobs tor heavier work so that they can r-ntice - the innocent into the movement. And the party is not growing to suit its high command. It has nol gained membership in such industries as steel, auto, rubber and maritime. Small increases in othei industries were called unstable by Winston. In shipbuilding, railroad and textile industries the Communist party is losing strength. But overall party membership increased since 1845 from 5i!,}J24 to more than 60,000. Only IK 1-2 per cent of the membership now is employed in basic industry. Perhaps more significantly, Winston said that only 51 per cent of American Communists were industrial workers at all and of these 11 per cent were unemployed. That is on the situation Winston proposes to change by boring into the heavy industry of selected stales. .
