TWO BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COUNTER NEWS THtmSDAY, MAY 12, 1949 THE NATION TODAY Lifting of Blockade in Berlin Gives Boost to Hopes for Peace But Soviet's Cold War Continues B<r Jamr* Marlow WASHINGTON, May 12. Wj A big part of mankind, which had •tumbled into a ditch, picked Itself up today, keeping » sharp eye out for booby traps, and slarted down * new road. Thlj happened In Germany where the Berlin blockade ended at midnight. What was really llfled was the blockade on the peace hopes of the Past »nd West. We'll know more about lliat after thi! start of Ihe May 23 meeting between the united Stales, Britain, Russia and France. Gaming Paraphernalia To B* Publicly Burned imUS ROCK. Mny 12. <f> — Gambling equipment which Arkan- sa» State Police seized In raiding iilack Fish Lake Ciuslno went up in smoke today. State Police Director Herman Undsey said the paraphernalia w«i burned In "ceremony" at police headquarters here. Llndaey said the equipment which can not b« burned will be smashed by hammer-AWliiRlni? Iroopern as ordered by the SI. Francis Circuit Court. Ever since word leaked out lhat Russia might llfl the blockade, I've been reading everything 1 could find, looking for the reason. Tliis is a great exiXM'icnce and recommended reading—not for the exact Information you'll gel, but Just to see how many people can be puzzled in print. Only the Blockade I.lfled Yesterday, just before the blockade was lifted. Secretary of Stale Acheson said a few cold words about the meeting with Russia. He said (lie Ru.ssinns will sel nowhere if they Iry lo throw sand In the machinery Ihe West has set up for bringing Germany back to life. So. before the Inlks slarl, Russia has a warning not to try tricks. And we're still talking of arming Western Europe, and probably will. This makes the Russians uneasy although they have made the West uneasy for a year with the Berlin blockade. They've been tough, and we gal tough, and there's nothing to show that either side has become less tough. This ought lo be enough lo cool off anyone who has Illusions lhat peace wllh Russia will come easily or at any price. And since the Big Four lalks ought lo last quite a while, It will be some lime before you know whether we all land in another ditch. But at the moment, -except for what's happening in ChiiiR, the 'earlh Is comparatively quiet In Greece the Communists anr government troops still lake poi shots at one anolher. Rerls on Move In China And yesterday the Arab nations walked out of the United Nation, when the new Jewish stale of rael was admitted as the 5911 member.

In China, though, the Comimm Ifits are still plugging ahead. Ihe hearts set on all t^hina. Peace ther Is rerhote. Of course, that may have some immism, all Russia, all Siberia, and all China more or less soon to be under communism, the Russians may think they'll have their hands full for a while. Some of Ihe people who've been guessing about Russia's Intentions guess thai way.
