Reds' Purges Hove More Than One Dark Purpose ~— Communist actions always are susceptible of many interpretations, and • often they have many purposes at pncti. For instance, Bast German Rerls are now weaving a net about certain former top .party members, seeking to link them with the so-called Slansky group ' in Czechoslovakia. Fourteen of this group recently were convicted of treason and other crimes, and 11 were hanged in Prague. ' In this new effort, the Communists -seem basically to be striking at the t 'problem of disloyalty to the Soviet Union — Tiloism, if you like. It is not ^enough to be.a good Communist. You must bt loyal to-the Russian Fatherland. This is not easy for men who want to be not only Communists but good Germans, Czechs, Hungarians, Romanians, etc. The conflict is deep. The • stronger personalities, the very'individ- uals most useful to Russia in-fastening Red control upon a country, ultimately bfccome the most likely candidates for elimination. For in their leadership runs inevitably a marked nationalistic strain. The Soviet Union's relations with the satellite powers are at the stage where nationalistic tendencies must be suppressed if the process of consolidating the Iron Curtain countries is to make substantial headway. Tito's example is a painful reminder to the Kremlin of the dangers of independent satellite action. In this East German case, the Reels are striking also at "Zionists." The Slansky group is so labeled, and the former German Communists! under fire bear the same tag. Again, the problem is disloyalty, but in a different sense. The Jews have a cultural unity all thtir own, internationalist in scope. The Russians cannot tolerate so powerful a rival. Anti-Semitism in the Communist world thus does not have the same base as elsewhert. It is just one more reflection of the ruthless Red policy of allowing no competitors o£ any kind — whether cultural, political, economic or spiritual. Divided loyalty is the enemy of the totalitarian principle of government. Always alert to propaganda potentialities the Kremlin may not be im• mindful of the fact that its current blast against "Zionism" among satellite Reds will sound good to the Arab world. The Arabs bitterly resent western, especially American, attention to the young "Zionist state of Israel. In Czechoslovakia, too, the Commu- , nists were looking for scapegoats for BTVYTHEVTLLE (ARK.)' COl'IHEK NEWS THURSDAY, JAN. 15, 1953 •conomle failures. Ai the Red attack on disloyalty broadens in Germany and other places, we may find the vic- timis similarly made scapegoats for failures ot one sort of another. Moscow seldom tries to kill just one bird with a stone, Views of Others What Would Be Left? There may be renewed talk ot a federal sales tax If revenues from existing sources fall below expectation! and the deficit anticipated by the president materialises. The president, who has been notoriously wrong in such matter: before, Is estimating that the treasury's deficit may come to »10 billions for this fiscal year. Secretary Snyder Is concurring In that estimate, although it Is'not clear whether his pessimism is based on Information unavailable to more cheerful forecasters who sec a deficit of no more than $4 billions. Eisenhower advisers who have spoken of the . t possibility of a federal sales tax say It should not Include food, housing, fuel and utilities. Nor do they advocate a sates tax on goods already subject to federal excises. But If exceptions were mado of goods and services already subject to federal taxation It H'ould sewn rather difficult lo find targets for a sales tax. , —Oklahoma City oklahoman. ' General of the'Army Private Enterprise Can Do It .One'of the opening cries or the socialised electric power enthusiast* In the New Deal attack on free enterprise was'.the untrue charge that free enterprise "can't do the Job." And today the sanie cry Is being used against the proposal that free enterprise build the necessary stearn plants to provide additional'power Instead of permitting an extension of the socialized power empire. : But the cry that free enterprise can't do the job Is still n rhony one. During this year, for example, 15 private,power companies worked together ^to create the Ohio Valley Electric Corporntton to build two st<mm .plants with a combined capnclly at 2.2 mil]Ion kllowsUfi fo suppty power to tlic Federal Government's Atomic Energy Commission. That- in Itself demonstrated that private enterprise not only Is willing and able to meet conventional needs, but also Is ready lo meet tha extraordinary needs resulting from defense projects which require large amounts of electricity. Another example of private enterprise's ability to meet the challenge Is found In plans for development ot more powqr In the Niagara Falls area- Five New York St'nie power companies have mtuie both physical and financial plans to cnr- ry out the project nnd provide the. needed electric capacity as soon n,i the Federal Government approves Hie plan.

America has grown to be a great nation on the muscles and brains of free enterprise.

De Gustibus A French court has refused to award damages In a suit brought against an architect on the grounds that his building Is an eyesore. The court held that artistic tasle Is "changeable, varying, too vague and controversial," and that one man's opinion on the subject could not be called a crime. It's a wise decision. A Latin proverb covers the subject: "De gustlbus non dlsputanrlum" — there's no dispute about tastes, it artists were condemned according to popular .lasle In their time there'd be many a painting unhung, and many an artist hanged. —Charleston (S.

"Say 'Billions!' " suggested a reporter. , Obediently. Mr. Dodge said "Billions," emphasizing it with n wicked shake of the right forefinger. Flush bulbs went oft and "the incident was recorded for history. Thus was the new budget rlirector- to-l>c initiated and given the password he will be using most often 'n his forthcoming official capacity.

He held his cigaret in his left hand and there was a gold ring on the little finger. He didn't have a great deal to iny that was new. The press conference was his own idea/ He had a two-page typewritten statement of 10 points which ,he had written or dictated himself. " The gist of it was that he was disassociating himself and the Eisenhower administration as a whole from any connection whatever with the Truman administration budget. Period. It he had quit there, everything would have been all right, maybe. But Mr. Dodge was willing and eager to talk about his statement for background only and not for attribution or quotation. That threa ened to spoil the story, but later on lie relented a little and allowed a few quotes. The new budget director wanted to take up his prepared statement point by point. "Let's go to numbers nine and ten," suggested a reporter In the back of the room Mr. Dodge, smiled quietly. The last two points brought out were first, that Mr. Dodge was Immediately beginning a review ,0! the Truman budget, with Eisenhower's new department heads. Later he said this would be completed in early April. There was no qualification on the Eisenhower administration's determination to balance the budget. "Are you confident you can bal- l was necessary to make certain assumptions — You didn't last summer," buttonhole was the red roof the Medal of Merit, award- Im by President Truman for ance the budget?" askert a reporter. Mr, Dodge dodged. He started to say that lo answer that question new have polici broke in the same reporter. Finally Broke No-Quotes Rule Mr. Dodge let that one have a real belly laugh and the press 'orps joined him. This was a typical Initiation ceremony that every new official in Washington goes through, be he Republican or Democrat. Mr. Dodge finally had !o break down his own rule and authorize a quotation that it took six months to prepare a budget and it wasn't logical to expect anyone could reverse a budget in 60 days. You just .couldn't take a federal government of two-and-a-half-miilion em- ployes, with thrcc-and-a-hall million more 1 in the armed services, and shut it off by turning n cotiplc of switches like you do with a. toy train. Mr. Dodge said he believed there were people who thought that switches could be thrown this way to shut off expenses. He judged this by many of the letters he. had been receiving. The problem was first to deter mine what the expenses of the government had s to be, then consider wat revenues were necessary to cover them. If cuts were marie, their effect on the economy had to be considered. The meal-axe approach might balance the budget, but it migtv also create more problems than could be foreseen. Mr. Dodge said he preferred to make cuts on spec! tic items than across-the-boaril cuts of 10 per, cent or so. For some time to come, said the new budget director In closing, the administration was goine to have trouble in putting into effec policies it could call its own.
