HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS * Monday, May, 24, 1943 Blow to the Axis Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MacKENZIE Moscow's announcement of the dissolution of the Communist Inter-national, or Comintern, is one of the momentous developments of the war if it proves to mean what it seems to indicate now. The Comintern, which was founded in 1919, long ago defined itself as the "general staff of world revolution." That succinctly sums up ils original mission — the spreading of Communism to other countries by creating revolts against their governments. It was the Comintern, with its agents and propaganda, which caused foreign nations, including Britain and the United States, to raise barriers of fear against Moscow. The implication in the announcement is that Russia has formally disavowed any intention of trying to spread Communism by this method. Henceforth Communist parties in foreign countries aren't to look to the birthplace of Bolshevism for instructions. Most observers, however, are ^inclined to regard this development as one of those puddings which are proved in the eating. Time will be a sure guidt whether the Red Comintern intends to fiery Trotsky was expelled and finally wound up in Mexico where he was assassinated. However, the Comintern continued to function vigorously and Communist parties in other countries looked to it for direction and orders. Observers hold that mosl of the suspicion and distrust of Moscow by foreign countries has been due to this fear of Communism being thrust upon them. Now we have this new Red announcement which ostensibly is calculated to remove the distrust and pave the way for unity of view among the Allies, post - war reconstruction. If things turn out that way it may prevent another world upheaval after we have finished with Hitler. Flashes of Life By The Associated Press Prediction Fulfilled Richmond, Va.

The curious cops wondered why he hadn't driven for so long. Now the erring motorist is on the way to the penitentiary identified as Edward Lewis, an escaped pris- home country. One of the most sensational aspects of this move is that it seems calculated to leave Fuehrer Hitler stranded in the old swimming-hole without any clothes.

This alliance declared the Communist International aimed at breaking up all existing states. The Nazi chief has been depending heavily on this propaganda, right up to the moment of Moscow's surprise announcement, not only to keep his followers in line but to try to create a split between Russia and th P rest of the United -Nations. Berlin and Rome appeared to be flabbergasted when the news broke from Moscow at the weekend. It certainly put them on a nasty spot from which they may have extreme difficulty in escaping. The Comintern was created as a Communist party institution with the idea of taking advantage of the widespread disorganization produced by the First World War to establish govenments. One of ' the chief exponents of this scheme was the late Leon Trotsky, who hoped to be the successor to Lenin. When Lenin died in 1924, however, it wasn't Trotsky but Stalin who came to power. Stalin took the position that Russia's first aim should be not world revolution but development of industrial strength at home. He therefore quietly shelved Trotsky's dream and a. little later inaugurated the industrialization which has been so amazingly successful. Meantime the Art hur W. Hamer.

The heaviest blow fell yesterday at Cleveland as the Indians captured a doubleheader 3-1 and 5-2 and moved into first place by a full game. Manager Joe McCarthy used his two best pitchers, Ernie Bonham and Spud Chandler, who hurled five - hit and six - hil ball, respectively. The Yanks were checked by southpaw pilchers — Al Smith and Chubby Dean — while the Indians bunched their blows for three runs in the third inning of the first game and four in the sixth stanza of the second game.
