PRICE 5c COt* Divided Berlin Set for More Red Disruptions By RICHARD KASISCHKE Berlin, Dec. 2 —(M— Divided Berlin braced itself today for new Communist attempts to disrupt Western sector election plans after Red hecklers last night tried to break up a Western political rally.

As a matter of fact, the South , has had no lynchings this year, and had none last year, I believe — but the North coins its own words, and, having all the country's big newspapers and magazines, it is able to perpetuate the legend that the word lynch is legal tender for mob violence only in and West. the South Up North you call it by another name — any name will do. as long as you don't say "lynch." Thomas Boles, superintendent of Hot Springs National Park, forwards me a clipping from the Argus, published at Carlsbad Caverns, which reports that J. P. Skinner, a potash miner in that vicinity, has finally convinced his neighbors that what they say about Hope, Arkansas, watermelons is true. , Mr. Skinner, a native of Hope, got a copy of Hope Star earlier in the Fall showing a picture of one of the largest melons raised this season, and reciting the history of the 1935 world champion which weighed 195 pounds. Looking at the picture of the 1948 model, and reading about the 1935 champion, the editor of the Carlsbad paper closed his article with this modest paragraph: "The Hope melons, we must admit, are bigger even than those grown in Hall county, Texas." Commented Hot Springs Park Superintendent Boles in his letter to me: "A good show — both the Carlsbad Caverns and the Hope melons." He ought to know: He was in charge of the Caverns for 20 years; and he now lives in Arkansas and can check on our watermelons personally.

In Western Berlin, the elected city assembly, which has declared a state of emergency, called another meeting. Western allied liaison officers attached to the city government was withdrawn today from the central city hall. Col. Frank L. Howley, U. S. Commandant in Berlin, said: "We are going with the legal! government. We only stayed there yesterday to witness the illegal act of the Communists of locking out the elected city officials." Western sector German police forces were on the watch to break up raids on anti-Communst election campaign rallies, prior to Sunday's elections. Undaunted by attacks by Communist rowdies Western Berliners slopped up their campaign to get out a huge vote under the slogan 'Berlin answers the Russian blockade." One such rally resulted in fist lights and police intervention last night when Communist hecklers tried to break up a social democratic gathering in the American sector. German police arrested nine heck lers, whom they identified as members of the Russian-sponsored socialist unity (Communist) party. One was an editor of the Soviet- licensed "Berliner Zeitung." All were released today after questioning.

The veteran lawmaker is slated for a key role in settling the mounting dispute over how much this country will spend on defense next year. He is due to become chairman of the Senate appropriations committee, which must give clearance to federal spending requests. A staunch administration supporter, McKellar indicated he is backing President Truman's plan to hold military outlays within a 715,000,000,000 limit in the fiscal year starting July 1. Sccrclary of Defense Forrcstal had proposed a budget allotment ranging up to $23,000,000,000. McKellar told a reporter he is greatly interested in learning if consolidation of the army, navy ar.d air forces has produced savings by elimination of duplications and overlapping. I certainly hope they have." The Tenncsseean added that his committee "is going to get to the bottom of this" with "full and complete hearings" "No money will be spent unnecessarily," McKellar said.

Hirohito told Mr. Truman that in . his position as a constitutional question, tat Mr. Truman "was very much gratified' ' by his report "because he is deeply, concerned" by the price situation.' In fact. Noursc added, it is "his very first concern," Nourse also said that if military spending in thc next fiscal year should be pushed up beyond the proposed $15,000,000,00 that would increase inflationary pressure.

Authorities said there is no doubt here thai Ihe situation created by Communist advances in China is critical. But they said these two factors work against any, speedy American action: 1. Congress — which must .authorize any aciditonal . aid — will not meet for another month. 2. Military and political conditions in Cliina are considered so unstable that officials believe any program worked out now probably would not apply a month from now. There arc no indications lhat either Ihe Economic Cooperation Administration or the stale department has yet presented President Truman specific plans for helping Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalists in their battle with the Chinese Reds. China's desire for swift American action was he;;vily emphasized by Ambassador Wellington Koo in a speech before the China Institute in New York city late yesterday.
