WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 1!)49 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Yugoslavs Blast Russians Again Accuse Soviets of Taking Children for Red Indoctrination BELGRADE, Yugoslavia, Aug. «. (AP)— Yugoslavia accused Russia last night ol holding captive 63 of thw i»untry's children sent to the Soviet Union for education after the war's end. It described the youngsters as between 10 and 13 years old—most of them either war orphan* or boys who served as army messengers during the fight for liberation. A forma! statement issued through the ministry of information said the children have been permitted to speak only the ffiisstan language, that they are no longer allowed to receive letters from home. Tin- statement said that after persistent attempts to obtain the children's return during the past two years foreign minister Ecivard KardelJ on June 11 sent a formal protest. Yugoslavia reported that the Soviet. Qovernmciit "turned a deaf car" to this, too, and lhu.s far has fnin- ished no reply. • In view of the fact lhat. the So viet government continues its silence -inil docs not wish to change its stand." the statement said, "it is necessary to acquaint the public with the contents of the note." The statement then went into the details in stiff language with which Yugoslavia emphasized its "unequivocal demands" for the reiurn of the children, saying at one point lhat Yugoslavia expects Russia to "take positive action immediately and inform the government of Yugoslavia of the dates and banner of repatriation ol the aforementioned Yugoslav children." Pitching Horseshoes BY BILLY ROSE During my rag-lae career as a showman, I've met up with a lot of fortune tellers, and it's my bumptious belief that, when it comes to fortunes, there's just no telling. After watching these heralds of the henceforth In night clubs and side shows for a quarter of a century, I'm convinces that (a) a palm is something to rest the chin on, and (b) that the creases In » man's skull usually come from a rolling pin, rather than the day after tomorrow. Which brings me to the story of Princess Winona, the mind reader, a 200-pound bundle of omens and onions, all Woolworth and a yard wide. . . . Back in the good old miss-meal days of the '20's. I was writing comic material for any two-bit vaudevill'an who could scare up two bits. And so I was ready and willing when Princess Winona'f agent informed me that his client was prepared (o part, with fifty bucks If I could come up with some pei>py chatter lo fun up her act. That night, I borrowed a nickel from a solvent shoeshine boy and subwayed my way out lo the vaudeville theatre at Brighton Beach where she wa< pluylng. And. sure enough, her act was as stilted as the tall man in a circus, choeka- blocl-: with the kind of wheezes an embalmer might get off after hard day at the office. "Princess." I said when I saw her after the show, "the first thing I'd suggest is to drop the emphasis on your supernatural powers. What the act needs Is a little kidding In between the miracles," ''The booking office would probably like It that way," said Her "but I have no intention of making light of the powers Providence has given me." "It Isn't the booking office I'm thinking of." I said, "it's the customers. And the best way to keep them from .squatting on their hands is to poke fun at your own racket. You know, null a pawn ticket out of your sleeve instead of the ace of spades—something like that." Waddlesome Winona looked it me as If I had caller her a sub- Webster name. "Young man." she said, "you're evidently confusing me with some of the charlatans you've worked for. Not only can I read minds, but nature has given me an extra sense—the ability to look into the future and predict what is going to happen." "Okay, okay," I said hastily, afraid of missing out on the fifty. "It'll <akc me a week to frame up a new act. «id then I'd like lo go over it with you. What theatre are you playing next week?" "I wish I knew," said the Princess. GOP to Protest Naming of Clark To Supreme Court WASHINGTON, Aug. 10. (/D — Some Republicans were reported working up a token protest yesterday against President Truman's appointment of Attorney General Tom Clark to the Supreme Court. Nevertheless, Senator Wherry ol Nebraska, the GOP floor leader. flatly predicted Clark's confirmation. The attorney general, named to succeed the late Associate Justice Frank Murphy, was on the witness list before the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday for any questions members might have. Wherry told a reporter he didn't think there would be any strong light against Clark. "Tom Clark's gohiK to be confirmed and' what's the. use of batting at him—that's my attitude*" he said. Senator Kem fR-Mo) may sail into Clark for what the Missourian has chareed; was the attorney general's failure to prosecute Kansas City vote fraud cases two years ago.
