PAGE EIGHT BLYTIIEVILLE (AUK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, .MAY 5, 1017 Russia Plagued With Crime, Too But Communists Say Lawlessness Capitalists to Blame Editor's note:—R. H. Shackfon!, veteran Unileci Press diplomatic correspondent, returned last week froin covering the Big Four foreign ministers conference at Moscow, Following is another of a sc- ries of background dispatches lie lias written on Soviet Russia. BV H. I!. SIIACKKORI) United Press Staff Correspondent 'WASHINGTON'. May 5. — Vine immorality, and crime are very embarassing to thp Soviet rcRunc. Communist Party propaganda teaches that these spring from de- fecU in the social order and thiil they are primarily caused by "capitalistic remnants." They arc rarely mentioned in the Soviet Press. Soviets always critici?* the American Press for giving so much attention to them. •' Thus. aj:p:aranre of an unusual number of Soviet press references to crime i" recent months led f-ii 1 - eign observers is Moscow lo the conclusion that the Russians arc poping with a postwar crime \vavCj just as other nations are. c ' Since last Fall there have bcci frequent references to crime m Moscow's only evening paper, the Moscow News, and the Newspaper' Trud. During the Soviet crime wave <ii 1945. even the leading dailies, Pravda' and Izvestia. reported crime. /Presumably Soviet papers carry reports of crime only when the prcblcm becomes serious in an effort to convince the public thai cxinie doesn't, pay. And in view nf the kind of sentences handed out it certainly doesn't pay in when one is caiiBhl. Totifili to He CiuiRlit Recent crime news included automobile murder, which liroug.-.t a' death sentence to the convictei rhan, counterfeiting, theft, and rpany forms of food speculation. For the latter type of crime, scnt^- ences ranged from 5 to 10 yeavs of "deprivation of liberty" (form labor in the Urals or Siberial. ant confiscation of property of tlie guilty.
