TUESDAY, APRIL 5, 1949 BLYTHEVILLE (AHK.y COURIER NEWS PAGE THREB THE NATION TODAY Scrcrtcfi/ng of Peace Pact Pens Echoes Around the World And Eyes of All Nations Turn to UN J By James Marlow WASHINGTON, April 5. W)—Tile bifiS'-if. sound In the world todnj is the echo from the scratching of pens, a ^lild sound any other lnue but not today. Yesterday statesmen of 12 western nations signed the North Atlantic pact,, a 20-year military alliance against UUKsia and Communism. The signing is an open conlcssion that J'.-j years alter World War II the world has failed to find a way to keep peace peacefully. So now the nations climb into* their armor and wait. ' And no soothsayer can tell where the forces set In motion yesterday will end. Real peace for a long time? Maybe. War with Russia? Maybe. And today (lie signers, or some of them, clashed to New York for the newest session of the General Assembly of the United Nations, that huge monument to men's ability to get along. Only four years ago this month statesmen of the allied world assembled in San Francisco to manufacture the U.N. out of men's ancient hopes and new desires for peace. Instead of a temple of peace they built, to the horrified bewilderment of the world, a crude sounding board for hymns of hate, name- calling, obstruction, anger, and distrust. f \\\ Eyes Again on U. N. The proof of the fnUurc of U.N. to do what It was supposed to do was the sound of pens scratching on the Atlantic; treaty yesterday. So the statesmen of the 58 member nations of U.N, flocked to the general assembly opening, as the these: We must keep down expenses; Russia is so strong it can rim over our European allies and capture the arms we sent them. But It we don't help our allies arm. then what real men nine will the pact have? It's too soon to say for sure. They may lose faith in us and lose the will to resist Russia. If that happens, the pact will be ns useless as the United Nations. Or. they may be satisfied to depend upon our promise in the pacl to fight for them if Russia attacks Robbed Widow Feels Los Angeles Unhealthy New York Times says, in a mood of "deep depression and despondency." Russia will be there. So will the big Western powers. Russia will be surrounded by her fr' -mis, the Western powers by their friends. It will be an ugly thing to hear. The 12 siRiier.s of the Atlantic agreement are the United Stales, Canada. Britain, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Norway, Denmark, Iceland. Portugal, Italy. But their signing the pact doesn't mean it's in operation, state-craft doesn't work that simply. There are wheels within wheels. Befire the pact has any meaning, it must be approved by the various governments whose statesmen came here with their pens. Signing was only the first step. The other countries undoubtedly will give it full approval. They're ^ glad to be lined up with the giaiv f strength of the United States be hind them as a bulwark and chain pion against Russia. Senate Action Awaited But the real fate of the pact lie with the U.S. Senate. It must ap prove before we can take part. It' expected to dp that. But— -, That isn't all. Under the agree mciil the pact members are sup posed to arm themselves and hel one another arm. To aid them this. President Truman is expecte to ask Congress soon for the mone needed, estimated at around SI 250.000,000 the first year. On that point Congress may bal voting only a little of the money none at all. Why? For reasons like LOS ANGELES, April Theft of jewels she valued at $434.000 has convinced wealthy Mrs. Eugenia Clair Smith that Los Angeles is not a healthy place for her.

They had missed, lowevcr. a small fortune in other ewels and fuis and $4,000 in cash. Price Supports Held Essential Cabinet Member Says Policy of Aiding Farmer Pays Dividend WASHINGTON, April 5. <AI>> Secretary of Agriculture Bniminn says government support o( farm prices should be continued to prevent another "farm-fed" national depression. The program, he adds, has proved its worth as a "stabilizer" of the national economy dut'ing the past 2 months' period ol downward ad- ustincuts in farm prices. Biannan gave his views In tesli- nony before the House Appropriations Subcommittee which drafted tlic money supply bill for the Agrl culture Department for the fiscal year beginning next July 1. His testimony was made public yesterday. I believe," he said, "that price snpixjru arc n fundamental nnd essential part of our total economy Dial they have K proper basis, and should be continued unless somebody develops 'a very much better improved mechanism for accomplishing the same purpose." Brannan declined, however, to ex press himself on the issue of whethe (lie ilexible price support system o the long-range Aiken law suits Truman administration views. The Alken system is due to go Into eflect next January. But a strong farm bloc in Congress is demanding it' be changed to provide for higher level supports. The secretary Is expected to outline administration views in testimony before the House Agriculture Committee later this week. Brannan said that financially, agriculture is still generally strong, but the peak of prosperity for farmers seems definitely to have passed.
