25, 1939 BLYFHEVILLE, (ARK)' COUKIER NEWS Can They!Really Be Friends IUHE1 Announced Goals Fa r Apart But Life For Average Man Similar By NBA Scrslce two vast peoples, 170,000,000 Russians and 80,000,000 Germans have, after years of mutual name- calling, been drawn logelher apparently into political and economic understanding. The Hitler revolution of 1933 and the Communist revolution of Inte 1917 were . based on Ideas about as divergent as possible Their announced goals were far apart, They were mutually an- ta'gpnistic. Yet strange parallels have arisen and in many practical aspects there are marked similarities. The Bolshevik revolution soueht world socialist revolution, translci In all countries of means of production and management to Ihe workers. The Communist party, ns self appointed representative of the proletariat, first sought to rule until class lines should dissolve political government more or les disappear, ana 1 actual manage ment of economic life and affairs could be placed with the masses of productive workers. Foundation of the German revolution was in nationalistic racial consciousness' of a world destiny of Germans as such. Under a single leader who should be obeyed without question, the *'purifjert" German race was to march a military read to its expanded destiny. Discipline was lo be extended alike to worker and private owner of productive property. RUSSIA SIDETRACKS IMMEDIATE AIM Russia, forced by circumstance to abandon its Immediate aim of world revolution, compromised on "socialism in one country." This resulted in nationalism, militarism, and an effort at self-containment not unlike that in Germany. At the snme time, German expansionist tendencies produced an effort to extend Nazism tD other countries similar to the Russian efforts to promote the world revolution. In each country control fell to 'a single party, which, with "violent purges," has "liquidated" opposition. In each country there is permitted only a single legal par},}'. The Russians assert faith In" eventual democracy, wKile' - Germany in any parliamenlary sense, rejects it. Each is a planned economy with all economic decisions am vital administration, including foreign trade, centered in a government bureau. Each, faced win- shortages of food and supplies fron time-to time, has-had to vatior them out by government rcgulii tlon. Beside the summary "purging" of leaders who became .out of favor with the ruling clique, each has arrested nnd placed in confinement thousands of "recalcitrant" people who failed to ' siip- Tfjrt , the regime with -cutflcient fervor. Both have suppressed tile churches whenever they appeared to be exerting nay influence on the political cr economic regime. THE STATE ' ' ;',,'& COMES FIRST In each, the average cilizen;is n "child of Ihe slate",Jn a sense ! iin?' known in the western world. In each, the citizen reads in the papers, hears over the radio, and sees on slage and screen exaclly what the government wishes him to, and nothing else. Press, radio and theater are regarded as organs by which the government moulds public opinion, and not as avenues of expression for individual views. Education is similarly controlled in both, nnd confined to the views of the controlling regime. WORKERS SUBJECTED TO CONTROL The workman's job Is subject to considerable control in bsth cases, though in Germany the trade unions have been broken up and a government-controlled "Labor Front" substituted, while in Russia the unions remain 'o speak for the workman in his job, though usually 111 Russia, women Jiave •* been encouraged to hold jobs outside the home. on the reports of FBI men, has ' PAGE THEEE New Industry May Bring rosperity To Area In Caruthersville Society — Personal John Rogge Pushes Louisiana ProbeJDespite Threats Of Death in subdued tones.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. <up) — Grass, nemesis of Alabama farmers in Hie days when cottcn wns king, has founded a new dynasty on the fertile limestone lands of Hit- stale's »!nck licit. The new ruler of the 'isama plains Is the white-faced, gentle Hereford. Hundmls ol purebred Hereford sires ami their herds of grade cows today roam the broad, lush pasture lamts of southwest Alabama where the little while cotton boll once grew supreme. 'llie Black Bell's new overlord received olllclal recognition leccnt- )i when more than 100 caltlewci from six southern states made n three-ilny Inspection tour of the nreii under auspices of the slati agriculture department and statewide civic groups, Official recognition of Ihe entile Industry has comu from another, contrasting source. Hustlers, scourge of the old West. Imvc appeared by the scores (o raid the herds. Squall lo Klghl Itiislllns: In fact, the stale itcparlincnl of agriculture, because of Ihe ever- growing menace, has found It' necessary lo set up an "antl-cntlle rustling division." Department agents have been sent Into the Black Ilcll to cope vvllli the Millers. Department officials reported, after (he three-day tour, that a majority of the visiting cattlemen were ns Impressed by the luxuriant grass lands as by the cattle which thrive upon them. Southwest Alabama always has produced Ihe grass which at last Ims been turned to good account. It was only by a ceaseless struggle against the ruthless growth that King Cotlon maintained Ills throne. And it was this siunc Irrepressible enemy thai finally toppled the little white king from hls'rulcrshlp. Ccllon fanners were able lo con- Irol the grass only by keeping fields completely clean. lu-thls wa'y, they constantly were eroded by Ihc wcalher. Finally, soil fcrllllty begin lo full and cotton crops suffered. Agricultural leaders, seeking a solution to foiling crops nnd the never - ending fight against the grass, finally arrived nt tile decision Unit an enemy might be lurued into a ,frlcnd. Growlh of grass 'was "encouraged for pashirelands and callle were Imported to replace the long, trim rows ol colton plants. Bunks Grant Loans . Chief impediment was financing the new venture. Finally, Alabama bankers were converted and loans to tin! slrlcken farmers brought about complete success ol Ihe venture. . . Although a majority of agricultural leaders believe the new Industry is still in its infancy, most ol them (ire enthusiastic In predicting the Black Hell soon will become the, major cattle-producing area of the Southland. Only one problem of thu area remained—and the stale department of agriculture believes the tour by Southern cattlemen has offered a solution. The Black Bell lands are unfavorable for corn produclton. The grain Is csscnlinl lo finishing off the.bcsl grade of beef. The department believes that contracts made during the tour will result In "feeder" cattle — cattle which have been fattened on grass and nre ready for corn — being shipped lo other markets next fall when the southwest pasture lands begin to full, Department officials predict thai in the future Alabama cattlemen will follow this plan ol fattening Ihelr cattle upon the rich grasses until the fall, then ship them lo grain producing areas for the final tenches.
