BIGHT BLVTHEVXLLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, JULY 23, 1949 Eastern Europe's Tensions, Conflicts Aid Cause of Allies By James Marlow WASHINGTON, July 23 (AP)—President Truman this week aaici that "tensions and conflicts appear to be increasing" within the circle of Russia's control. There are some tensions and con-+ •— filets In Eastern Europe, and here' »re three examples of them: 1. The Catholic church has thrown « time-bomb into Communists' ranks by excommunicat- any Catholic who helps them. This bomb will cause damage for years. 7 Marshall Tito, busy communions Yugoslavia, has been having a cal-and-ciog fight with the Hus- jlan lenders and the communists ol the other European countries under Russia's thumb. 3. American government experts on Russia point out that the Communists of Eastern Europe are having economic troubles. For example: F*d« Need Tools Th« Communist world wants to build up its industries as fa-'t as it can but still lacks many tools It would like to eel from this country and Western Europe. So it would like to Increase trade between East and West. But — These same American experts brush aside any notion that there In tension or conflict—in the sense of » split or <]inn>!-among the dozen top communists who run Russia and direct Communist world strategy. Those 12 men. headed by Josef Stalin, are members of the Politburo They're the rulers of Russia. And this is what the American experts have to say about them: First of all, the Americans 1 Information Isn't good enough to say precisely what happens inside the polltburo.

"These are false hopes," Judge Hand said. "Liberty lies In lhe hearts of men.. .While it lies there, it needs no constitution, no law and, no court to save it, It i.s not freedom to do as one likes that is the dental of liberty and leads straight to its overthrow. A .society in which men recognize no check up on their freedom soon becomes a society where freedom is Ilic possession of only a savage lev." Citizens Have Kespanslbiliiies Mr. Morley also quoted Gen. Omar Bradley as saying "Self-government is not a luxury on which men may grow fat and indulgent. ..Because self-government, is an instrument which demands unceasingly the services, the energies, the participation of those who would benefit from it. self-government Is weighted a.= heavily with obligations as it is with privileges." Emphasizing (he responsibilities of citizens under self-government, Mr. Morley said "Totalitarian groups advocate and practice change b> violence. Nobody can be loyal to both the American way of life and one of these totalitarian systems. "With Americans, progress anc change must lie brought about by constitutional means. Loyalty, like liberty, comes from within anc springs from a basic sense of decency."

Youngdahl's demand that the council order the dismissal of Charles Paster, secretary of the Slate Investment Board, Governor Youngdahl brought the issue Up at a special meeting of the council. He said Foster acted Improperly in using state funds to buy the Arkansas bonds. The governor charged at the meeting that records of the investment board were "tampered with and falsified and that a secret deal was made to purchase these bonds He a>kcd (or a motion to dismiss Raster bu t other members of the council refused to act. Governor Youngdahl was asked If he intended to bring criminal action but he replied that he had no intention of pursuing that course. He announced, however, that he would name an advisory committee to investigate the state's investment setup. Members of the committee will include investment experts, business men and others interested in tinancing matters. He said he would ask the committee to report an procedures the state has followed in buying securities He did not. Identify prospective members. Youngdah! said the Slate Investment Hoard met J-.ine 8—when he was absent—and approved purchase of the bonds from the Charles Fuller Investment Co.. of Minneapolis. 'Fuller appeared In Little Rock and purchased the entire block of Arkansas' S7.000.0CO highway bonds. His low bid drew whistles of surprise from competitors. The bonds are the first of a proposed $28.000.000 Issue to finance an S80.000.COO highway construction program for Arkansas.) Younodahl said a resolution authorizing the state purchase was omitted from the records but a copy was sent to Fuller. Stafford King, state auditor, dc- 'ended ihe action. He told the gov- the board members feared that the vrlccs of lhe , nlght go up u the public learned of the deal. CHURCHILL Continue a from Pag* 1 power—I lell you very plainly this afternoon—we will reverse or prevent every one of them," The Conservative leader described British socialism as a "dangerous ami co-stly fallacy" of which the nationalisation of coal mines, railroads, airlines, gas and electricity was lhe "most direct expression." At the same time he explained why the Conservative Party election platform pledged to retain most of the nationalization projects already placed into effect by the labor government. "It is physically Impossible to undo the harm that has heen done," he declared. "You cannot thimt the coal mines and railways back on their private owners after their property has been commercially mined. British newspaper comment on the platform's pledge to retain existing nationalized industries generally followed party lines but even .some newspapers which normally back the Conservatives were not over-enthusiastic about it. Critical of Labor Leaders Assailing "wrong-headed planning and official interference," Churchill charged the labor government had uo effective plan for Negro Woman's 'Bank' Is Lost During Fire; Loss Placed at $30 dealing with the economic crisis. He rapped the laborites for "squandering" the sterling area gold and dollar reserves despite aid from the United States and Canada. The Socialist Party make a great parade of their quarrel with the Communists but there is no real difference between a full application of the Socialist system and Communism. "Both are fatal to liberty as we have known ii, to our prosperity and happiness and what we have called the "British way of life.'" Summing up with a review ol Britain's role as leader of the empire, commonwealth and western Europe, Churchiil asserted: "If we sink through Socialism In to economic decline and collapse, • j not only will our own sufferings be Beatrice Boyd.

Want* "Fair" Department Mr. Morley said he was trying to set up a "completely fair" revenue department organization but 'one editorial can undo what It takes 10 years to do." Calling such attacks "unfair," he said he expects opposition to his activities from the "rats in the state and liquor dealers who are not operating as they should." Asking the support of Lhe "right- thinking citizens" of the state, Mr. Morley said: "I have been trying to do Rood, but when I have misguided people questioning the integrity of the revenue department, it makes me wonder If It's worth while." He also denied that he has received any "suggestion of advice" from Gov. Sid McMath, who appointed Mr. Morley revenue commissioner in January. 'T told Sid," Mr. Morley said, that if he wanted to rim the revenue department, there was .no use in having me around and I'd quit." That "understanding," he said, has pi evalled since he has been in office. He said he had no part in any political campaign and challenged his listeners to disprove the integrity of the Revenue Department. Warns Exporters Before issuing the liquor export licenses, he said, he checked the validity of the new law. "I told the exporters that if any one of them made one mistake. I would jerk not only that firm's license but all their licenses." he declared. "I arn not making one thin dime out of these export licenses," he said, asking his audience to check rumors they might hear of licenses being "sold" before believing them. "I need your help in combatting rumors." he said. "I want to merit the confidence of all the right- thinking people of the state." . He said earlier that "integrity in public office is the basic need In the United States and other countries. We must have this or lose our democracy." He said he had read the Gazette editorial during his flight here from Little Rock and that it had "changed the tenor" of the talk he had planned. Report of '/VessuiV On Physicians Checked LITTLE ROCK, July 23. (£>>— Arkansas' two Senators apparently haven't heard a report that the Internal Revenue Department is putting the pressure on physicians for possible income tax evasion. But, Sens, McClellan and Fulbright said in a letter to the Arkansas Public Expenditures Council, if such a report is true then Congress should investigate, Sam Hays, director of the council, last week said he had received reports the Revenue Department was singling out physicians for possible income lax evasion. It was In retaliation tor the doctors' general stand against the proposed federal health program. Revenue Department officials Iti Washington and Arkansas have denied the reports.
