S, Tradition tf- Europeans are ionr. o," kidding Americans about (heir allegedly low level 'of literary and musical taste but the fact is—especially in music—America's long pockelbook and her willingness to dig info it has been a major factor in keeping talent alive all over (he world. And this ha.s been true from the (iuliest days of the American nation. Although our car.--, naturally inclined to folk music for everyday entertainment we recogin/.ecl 'a fundamental truth—that while pop- ifclar music, like election.-;, is judged uy the majority of the mom-nt there is a standard of good music that transcends generations and therefore achieves immortality. Even in colonial days Americans were eager to bring over here—and pay—talent that could perform with music that had stood the critical test of tune. And our national interest in this has never faltered. So that whatever native talent America! has today for good music is owed to a tradition that was established the moment our ancestors »ot off the boat. Hope has organized a Community Concert association and is this week conducting a membership campaign which will deU-rmine whether we open a Winter Concerl series next month. The record shows that we are considerably behind the rest of Arkansas in getting around to this, several cities smaller 'than Hope having their concert associations firmly" established by this time.

Nov. 30 — i/D — Russian-, backed Berlin Communists established a separate city government today in opposition to the elected anti-Communist administration. The Communists made virtually complete the political division between Eastern and Western Berlin. A now anti-Communist government to administer the Western sectors of the city— occupied bv the United States, Britain, and France — will be chosen in elections Sunday. The Russians have forbidden voting in their sector of the city arid the Communists have ordered their followers to boycott the election. The Communists, joined by a few splinter elements from other parties, set up their government at a mass meeting in Admirals Palast auditorium in the Soviet sector of Ihe city. j The rally was called with the (avowed aim of taking "decisive : measures for the protection of a I united Berlin" — apparently a move to gain control of the whole city before the election in the Western sectors, where about two thirds of all Berliners live.. j An outdoor demonstration of : workers marching along Unter Den • Linden in the Soviet sector was ar- i ranged to follow the rally. : The Communist rally adopted a resolution proposed by the so-called : "democratic bloc of Berlin" cle- | nouncing the deleted government ;i'.nd demanding it be replaced. • '1 hen the Communists elected '• Fi-icdrich Kbcrl, 54, as their own 'mayor.

As a member of the senate armed services committee. Hill said, he will demand in the next congress that the army, navy and r force put aside their "petty fighting'' lor the country's good. In an interview before leaving for Alabama, the senator said: The time has come for Secretary of Defense Forrcstal to knock some heads together, or if need be, to knock some heads off. to carry out the intentions of the law passed by congress to give us unification m fact and not in fancy." Hill was a member of the senate armed services subcommittee which began studying unification legislation in 1944. He said "The navy raised such strong objections" that the bill was not approved until last vear. "But the spirit and the intent of the act have not been carried out," Hill said. Air force advocates claim that despite service agreements on wartime tasks the navy is trying to cut into the air force's long' range bombing job with ils carrier based planes. Hill said the country now is "confronted by two dangerous sil- ' nations" because the armed serv- jices have not settleld their disputes. The "first danger" he said, is that "we do not have a team of armed forces which congress felt was necessary for defense. The three separate services arc fighting one another.

Her attorney told Judge Julius H. Miner all the attempts had made Mrs. Lewandowski "highly nervous." He added, "we think it was all a bluff, x But we want him to stop."

This brought the following statement from MacArthur's public information office; "In reply to a query from the press as to whether the condemned Japanese war criminals would be executed before action could be taken on appeal to the supreme court of the United States, General MacArthur categorically replied 'certainly not.' " Later the public information office said this applied to all seven major war makers, although only two appealed.

DO — (;T> — The army today cut in halt' its proposed January draft call for 20,000 men. Lack of money was given as the reason. At the same time, the army announced the February call would be for only 5,000 men. "The reductions were necessitated by the limitation of the military budget for fiscal 19SO to $14,000,000.000 of which $fiOO,000.00 arc for stock-piling of strategic raw materials, the national military establishment said in a statement announcing the army plans. The new draft calls are far below the 3,000 a month average which Army Secretary Royall estimated last 'June when plans were being made for the peacetime draft. The first call for November was 10,000 and the December call 15,000. The announcement said that neither the navy nor air force has j requested any inductions under the selective service act. The present strength ot the army is about 045.000, The last congress authorized .a total of H37.000 men ' .-'r ^ ; :• '„; '^y. not including 110,000 i.o?.<»i^id volunteers who would enlist %0Pme year.
