PRICE Sc COPY En route with Dewey to Oklahoma City, Oct. 13 —(/Pi—Southern Illinois gave Gov. Thomas E. Dewey a "Wallace welcome" of flying tomatoes and rotten cgss last night as he headed for Oklahoma with 13 speeches on his program. Dewey was beset by a mishap at Besides the flying groceries, Dcwcy was beset by a mishap at Beaucoup, 111., where his special train backed up into a crowd of about 1,000 persons who had turned out to hear the nominee in an after dark speech. "That's the first lunatic I've had for an engineer," the Republican presidential candidate commented. "He probably should be shot at! sunrise." Dewey added, "but we'll lei him off this time since nobody was hurt." Officials of the Louisville and Nashville railroad identified the chief engineer of the GOP special -~ Lee Tindle of Evansvillc.

But even here she discovers the long shadow of the NKVD terror blacking out the sunny promise of life in a "fairyland." By OKSANA S. KASENKINA Edited by Isaac Don Levine INSTALLMENT 16 Within two weeks of my arrival in the United States I found myself enclosed by the iron curtain which shuts off all Soviet citizens on assignments Abroad, out which remains invisible to the people in whose midst they live. I first saw New York at dawn of June 15, 1946, from the Soviet freighter Kirov, a former Liberty ship. Being just a plain teacher, and not a Soviet bureaucrat, I had spent some seven weeks traveling from Moscow to America with long stop-overs at Black Sea ports, Official Greeter Getting Workout in Oklahoma Oklahoma City , Oct. 13 —W — The Republicans are sure getting a lot of work out of Roy Turner — the 100 per cent Democratic governor of Oklahoma. Every time a big Republican like Tom Dewey comes to Oklahoma, hospitality forces Turner down to the station to glad- hand them. First it was Earl Warren. Today it's Dewey himself. And tomorrow it'll be Harold Stassen. Since Turner is national president of the Truman-Barkley clubs, you can imagine how happy this makes him. Today it wasn't so bad. If the thought of shaking hands -with Dewey was a pang, at least it was the lesser pang. Turner called off a serious personal appointment to meet the Republican presidential candidate. It was cither Dewey or the dcntistt. Russian Plan Tindlo and I comment. officials made no ,• , r, . , ,,, „ c . • stro P.M At Mt. Vernon, 111., in a South- first Russia s Wall Street is spoil- | crn I1]inois scct ^. g encral , volre . ing for a fight. It is the author of i garclcd as friendly territory. Dewey was the target of two fly- tSAmcrica's "imperialistic" plans to enslave all Europe, crush the So viet Union, and make itself richer in the process. Then there is Henry Wallace's Wall Street. Mr. Wallace is a capitalist and admits it. What's move, his left-wing admirers boast, he's the only one of the presidential candidates who ever met a payroll. But Mr. Wallace's Wall Slrceet is not only pining for war and plotting Russia's downfall. It is , also running this government. It's the head -coach of lhe-««w,var mongers," a group that seems to include all Americans except those who will vote for Mr. Wallace next month. Now we come to Mr, Truman's I 1 Wall Sarcet. That Wall Street is not running the government now, but it will be if the voters should elect Mr. Dewey. It is not doing any war mongering, but it is intent upon a domestic program that would lead inevitably to depression. <|B We also have President Peron's v Wall Street. The Argentine dictator says that there was a plot to assassinate him and overthrow his government, hatched by a former American Embassy employe in Buenos Aires and "foreign capitalistic interests." The boys enclosed in quotation marks surely couldn't be anybody else but Wall Street. President Peron's Wall Street, he says, "wanted another Bagota here." This composilc picture of Wall ^ Strcel resembles Ihe composite " picture of the elephant given by the six blind Indians after each had examined a different portion of the beast with his hands. Judging from this picture, Will Streel is violently opposed to both the left and the right. II is planning a war of extermination against Communist Russia. But it also planned to exterminate a fascist-type dictator and create "another Bagota" in Buenos Aires. The composite Wall Streel is ^ running our government and die'-'" tating its policy. Only it isn't, really. It's really working its head off lo turn out the present government so it can run the next ono. We've noticed that the Wall Street stock market takes a dive P.ny time thai a war scare grows really severe. We've also noticed that the big bankers and brokers seem lo prosper, along with most everybody'else, when there is no depression and industry and agriculture are busy and people have •' mono to spend. But, from the evi- ** dencc above, this probably doesn't explain anything. AH wo can say is that if the composite picture of Wall Street is anywhere near true, it sure is a wonde. that the big bankers and brokers could be so dumb and still have made all that money. ing tomatoes. The candidate's security patrol said youngsters lo'jbod the vegetables from a nearby roof and promptly ran. R. L. Biles, porter on the seventh car away from Dewey's reported the train also was pelted with eggs at Beaucoup where the train backing-up incident occurred. "They were rotten, I know, because I could smell them," Biles told reporters. pcw.ey. ..whose . train was struck by one over-ripe tomato in Colo rado two weeks ago, took no no| tice of the tomato-heaving inci- ident. Hea did not learn immediate lly of the egg tossing. Mt. Vernon is near West Frank fort where Henry A. Wallace's Progressive party candidate for LT. S. senator from Illinois, Curtis MacDougall, was driven out of :own by stonethrowers who' broke up a rally several weeks ago. Dewoy, in his speeches, continued on his theme that only the Republican party can c o n- vince the world that the United States is not' 'faltering" in its search for' peace. He urged that the American people "east off the shackles of confusion and defeatism and despair" by electing a Republican administration in November. Mt. Vernon witnesses estimated a half dozen tomatoes were lobbed toward Dewey and his party on the train's rear platform. Mayor Harry Bishop said the candidate's trousers and his own were splattered. A listener standing in the group caught a direct hit. "II was a great shame that it rnunisY had to happen after the big effort ! that had been made to have governor Dewey stop in Mt. Vernon." M;iyor Bishop said. In an address for delivery in Oklahoma Cily, Dewe asserted that the United Stales "in the interest of national security" must increase State Official Resigns From Position il.s potential oil producing capacity. "Because of our present needs we have no reserve productive capacity today to help cushion the shock of any emergency," he said. "Our peacetime demands arc actually so great that the United Slates has become a net importer of petroleum. Obviously, the time has come when to be careless wtri our oil reserves is to gamble with our country's security at home and abroad, oil is of vital importance to everyone -of us." In the interest of our national security we must increase our oou:ii- tial oil producing capacity. We must go on with research in the development of better methods of re- iining and secondary recovers', so that we can realize'the full pot u:- tials of our oil supplies." In addition the nominee assailed: That America, if she is to remain free, must be strong. I That his administration, if ei-'d- led in November, will back its d;p- jlomalie representatives by )ett:i;,'! them "know that America is not divided." That the "abundance ca" must be maintained on board ship in Marseillies and Gibraltar. "The natural science teacher is here," was the word that spread in the Soviet colony as soon as was conducted to the diplomatic .school on East 87th Street at Park i Avenue where I was quartered in a pleasant room. Vice Consul Sorokin assigned a teacher, Valentina Orlova. to act as my escort. She had been in the United States for quite a while, and it was not long before I discovered that she was a member of the Communist party. My fiist contact with life in America was a visit to a delicatessen store. I could not believe my eyes at the sight of all the meats and other food products. Everything seemed so cheap to me, with no ration cards, and no queues in the street. "What wealth!" I could not help exclaiming. My companion looked askance at my unconcealed exuberance. I was taken on a tour of the parkway along the Hudson River, and it seemed to me like a scene from paradise—-the fabulous traffic against the background of great natural beauty. To think that all those myriads of automobiles were being driven by capitalists! Could it be that everybody in the United States was a capitalist, I mused. NexTl went" "on "a shopping trip to some of the leading department stores. The variety of goods offered was simply breath-taking. That there was no limit to what anyone could buy and that the stock was inexhustible, seemed incredible to one who was accustomed to standing in line in Moscow, often to be told that the article you had been waiting for was all sold out. And what Moscow teacher could afford to shop in the be.st department store there— the Mostrog? The wonder of wonders was the five-and-ten cent store on Fifth Avenue where I was taken. A I Soviet citizen in her sweetest dreams cannot conjure up such a profusion of everyday goods, and I was astonished that the throngs outside did not clean out the shelves and the counters in a mad rush such as would occur in Moscow were such a magic store to be opened. "So this is what Ihe Uniled Slates gives its people." I remarked lo my guide. This was heresy, especially since it was the unwritten law among all the Com- flicials lo run down everything American. These Communists stocked up with more American goods than the ordinary Soviet citizens, and yet they were the loudest in berating American merchandise as compared with Russian. On a walk through Central Park, By LOUIS NEVIN Paris, Oct. 13 — UP) — The six neutral powers of the United Nations Security Council met tonight to consider Russia's answer to their proposal to end the Berlin blockade. There was no immediate indication of what the note from the Kremlin said about Berlin. Earlier in the day Sir Hartley Shawcross of Britain charged before the 58-nation political committee that Russia's fifth column is sabotaging world reconstruction through Communist parties in every country in the world. By agreement between state and ! defending attorneys union members and organizers re-entered pleas of guilty lo aggravated assault in Hempstead Circuit Court early this afternoon, five received fines of $100 each and a sixth was Riven a two-year suspended sentence. They previously had pleiid not guilty to charges of violating the Arkansas anti-violence strike law and the first trial, held here in January on change of venue from Miller county, resulted in a hung jury. Owen Bolcn, UMW organizer of Dora, Aln., who admitted witnessing a fight between 3 union men and a 51-year-old Texarkana cotton mill worker, received the suspended sentence. The others, H. Lee Martin of ^ynchburg, Va., Fred Thomason of Springfield, 111., organizers and -larence Bean, Dan Ryan and W. 3. Jackson of Texarkana, Texas, union members, were fined $100 each. The organizers were charged with having beat up Jcrdcn Haw- cms, Negro, with a chain during a strike at Texarkana October 8, 19'17. Sawkins worked at the plant involved and did not belong to s union. During the first trial surprise testimony entered the case when three Texarkana, Texas union members. Clarence Bean, Dan Ryan and W. B. Jackson, testified 1 it was they who beat up the Negro, Jcrdcn Hawkins, 51-year-old REDS WOULD BY ORIGINAL ABIDE PACT Paris, Oct. 13 —(IP)— Russia has asked the Western powers to drop the Berlin dispute from the security council and go back to the Moscow agreement of Aug. 30, a usually reliable source said tonight. The Aug. 30 agreement "in principle" provided for a settlement -based -upurr''establish- ment of the Russian mark, under four-power control, as Berlin's sole currency. The four military governors in Berlin were never able to agree on the details. The informant said the Soviet reply was delivered to the representatives of France, the United States and Britain by Argentina's Juan Atilio Bramuglia, acting president of the council on the Berlin issue. "The Russian answer puts the Western powers back where they were," the source said. "I imagine some of the 'Little Six' who have been attempting to mediate the situation will be disappointed."

For Bramuglia, Argentine foreign minister and president of the security council, is .trying to resolve east-west dispute over Berlin. Rebuffed in his attempt to "bring " the" disp'utnhis together 1 outside the security council, he is now trying to solve the crisis within the council.
