Soviet Foreign Policy the Soviet Union's six-point htate- . mcnt of foreign policy issued in this country by the Soviet Embassy is :i welcome and enlightening document. It lulos out differences of political system as a deterrent to coopeialion and friendly relations with another nation, ami makes love of freedom and peace their prime jequisite. It further rcnoinicus imperialistic expansion by the Soviet , government at the expense of any other But|njost-- Americans will piobably find groatesf jhtere'st in the officially announced 'nrmciiVal of "non-intervention in lhe",.interhal affair's of other ' r. .. ' Thisi,reaffirnis the hands-off -policy implicit in -thX Comintern's dissolution and, for all- apparent purposes, lays the persistent ^host of a Soviet government-sponsored^ world revolution. -The^etpnn'ciples of foreign policy • were issued Wer the signature of Col. ' A, 'Galin, who identifies them as the .program which the Soviet Union has cbnsistently followed throughout its existence. We may conclude, then, that frequent 1 similarity between the thoughts anil actions of the Commmmt Parties 'in the United States and Soviet Russia is -not to be constiued as an alliance between the American Communists and . the Soviet government, of which the Russian Communist Party js the dcm- jna'nt political body, • We may also conclude that those • yrtjo^ before the recent election attacked critics of American Communists as pei Eons bent on alienating our. Russian ally, \ycre not completely infoimed For it is clear in the light of the Soviet - foreign - policy statement that these drities were no more. likely to injure •Rtksp-American relations than weiethe authors of articles in the oificial Soviet • ; paper Izvestia which critized American Republicans. ; _,Some may say that these six principles 'have been contradicted by , the Soviet Union in its 27-year history,, and that the Russian definition of such terms. as "imperialism" or "non-intervention" do not coincide always with ours. And others may answer that few fcomiiments can point to a lustoiy free i «f contradictions between puncipal and action,' of can say that immediate aim ' has .never dictated policy. . '' • The point is that the Soviet govern- ,me_nt has published a considcicd statement , of admirable policies, ami has thus invited its Allies and the world i to judge us future actions m accordance with them. Contributions for Health Wartime America has been lucky in the matter of health, but its good luck is no accident. Health authorities have been vigilant and active. Many physicians have done the noimal work of two v or three men. Government food and price control, however much ciitized, BLYTHEVILLE .C.OURIEK NEWS lias . kepi; within reach of all « food ; supply normal in in' quantity and nutrient value, and only slightly curtailed in variety ancJ quality. But our health authorities must continue to be vigilant and industrious, and the country must continue to give them its support wherever possible. One opportunity for such support is found in the 28tli annual Christmas : Scal Sale of (lie National Tuberculosis' Association. : • ; The association may take a share of credit for the^fact that our tuberculosis? death rate declined slightly in the past! ; year. But other, Jess encouraging fig-;. ures reveal that the death rate jrosii', hi'? 21 imiusd'ial states. This rise is'dii'e'Ur such fiiclurs as crowded or poor housing, long hours of hard work, and insufficient rest. To combat the rise, the Association cooperates with public and private health agencies, maintains clinics and public health nursing and consulting services, ami carries on rehabilitation work and mass industrial x-raying. This last activity is doing much to discover unsuspected tuberculosis in tlie early, readily curable stage. ' The National Tuberculosis Association is financed solely by its sale- of Christmas Seals.. And the war should not make us -forget that our modest contributions are still needed in the conquest of a> disease that hus taken more American.lives since Pearl Harbor than have been lost in battle. < £! Lawful Mutiny . The German-.''army, long « "synonymous- with rigid discipline,:, has now sanctioned mutiny in the 'interest of "total resistance." The Nax.i Party, which clearly controls the army, advises German -soldiers, or home guards to shoot anyone who contemplates surrender—even if it be a soldier's superior officer. The announcement of this surprising move was found in a captured copy 'of a Na/.i army-circulated publica- " tio'n, and its text included admission that "our will to resist is the only thing we have left against the' 'material 1 superiority of our enemy until [he new weapons are ready for the'front." ; RciiulU; of such an anarchic loosen: .ring, of Discipline ..can, only, bo guessed "for the time'being 1 , but surely' H/'wili be an invitation to many disaffected .soldiers,, especially the older and. less ardently Nazi. Obviously there must be widespread disloyalty or war-weariness among German troops and officers lo require such a desperate remedy. And while there is danger'of building up t 00 much hope on this premise, it would appear from this that "fanatic resistance" is being despaired of, and that "the new weapons" are truly the Nazis' last hope.'

Each time I touched the buzzer I hoped a Powers model would glide in for dictalion. < And the^e was plenty of dictating to'dp. I'd been making out confidential stalcmenls on the Doggio enterprises and juggling around with figures that took your breath away. I was tho fair-haired boy all right. Outside of Boggio himself nobody knew as much about his financial empire as I did. For my own edification I'd drawn up a map that would have done credit to a professor of economic?. Every source of revenue in every city war. marked. I had dope on the numbers rackets, the bookie establishments and Iho high class gambling joints, and was learning how much graft it took to buy oft cerlain officials. I'd also checked the records of those otic had lo stay away from. All this information had been gathered by Boggio over a period of years but it had never been sifted Out. lie himself didn't know how much he was worth. Ant! it would take me a long lime to find out.

He snapped the case shut and put it on the desk. "I'll leave you the whole works. That'll make it simpler." He removed the glasses he'd put on to look at the papers and began fumbling in one of his pockets. Pulling something out he laid his head. I didn't have to oe a mind reader to understand. It wasn't the incongruity of the situation that had tickled his fancy It wasn't the fact that Leo Kabalcck was afraid of a gun while his en- lire existence was tied up with individuals whose first reflex was to grab for one. It went deeper than that. He'd never forgiven me for having seen him bellyaching that night. Now the balance was restored. Gradually the laughter tapered off to end in a fit of coughing. over it. "Leo," lie said softly, "I wouldn't want you to come to any harm now. So look what I've brought you." v lie lifted his hand, revealing a sm,all pearl-handled revolver.
