MONDAY, APRIL 11, 1949 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE THE NATION TODAY 47,000,000 in Germany Given Chance by Western Powers to Set Up Their Own Government *j By Jmues Marlow WASHINGTON, April 11. (ffr— Here's su ADC oil the i\gicement to ici up * «ew German government, which will split Germany In hull. The agreement, announced last week, was mnde by the United States, Britain and France. This Is how it came About: When Germany collapsed In 1945, tho U. S., Britain, Fiance and Russia agreed to divide Germany into four parts, or zones, Each of the four powers would occupy one zone with Us troops. And each of the four would run Its own zone absolutely. The four were supposed to work' together to get Germany back on its feet economically and politically. This is how: By getting trade, business aixl jobs going again and, eventually letting the Germans set up their own gov- Blossom Time Go! eminent for all Germany. It didn't work put. Instead of working together economically, the zones were working separately, with trade barriers between them. But this couldn't go on if Germany was ever to get back, to anything like normal. The US. and Britain decided to treat their two zones as one. economically. Prance finally joined them. Ru.'siu wouldn't, take part at all. But the ixjlUical fousl-up was worse, lor Russia and the three WjVesteni powers couldn't agree o the kind of government Germany should have. Reds Wanted to Set Sta^e The Russians wanted a strong highly centralized government Such a government could hold al Germany in a tight grip, controlling education and information even have a secret police. Under that kind of govcmmen the Communists one day might b able to grab control of the whol country. The Western powers wanted not-too-centralized government for! all Germany, marie up of 16 separate states, each with its own leg- islaturt 1 and keeping strong powers. although there's to be one congress, oi parliament, for all. That kind ol government would be something like the United States 1 . Communists would have a tougher time getting control of that. The Russians and the Western powers couldn't agree. So early last ye ar the Western powers set * n motion the machinery for creating A —in their zones of Germany—the ^kind of government they wanted. They let the Germans in their zones elect representatives to a constituent assembly. It's the job of that assembly lo draw up a constitution for a government covering tile three Western zones. But there were a number of details on which the U.S., Britain and Prance couldn't agree. They've been trying to reach agreement for many* months. This week they've agreed. They'll let the new Germany government be created. Each of the three, for some time, at least, will keep troops in its own zone of Germany. They'll be able t« stop the new lie three Western allies don't want jone. But, generally, the idea is to t the Germans run themselves as nuch as ixxssible. There are 16 states in Germany 1 of them are in the three Western zones, five in the Russian zone. There are 41,000,000 Germans In the hiee Western zones, 11.000,000 in ,he Russian zone. Since the Western Allies arc set- ling up a government rim by Germans in their part of Germany, the Russians probably will set up another government run by other Germans in their part of Germany, Thus Germany would tx- split In two, with the Russians making sure they dominated the Germans in their zoi:e of Germany, the Western allies making sure their Germans were tiea in with them.
