FACE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, MAY 30, 1949 THE NATION TODAY Much Talk in Paris Concerning Germany's Future But Outcome Still is Anything But Certain Bjr Jame* Marlow WASHINGTON, May 30.(A't— The bigger you are, the lc,« cliance there is lor «n outsider to lei) you what to do. What ha« happened in Detroit, and what's happening In Paris, are good examples. » The Ford Motor Company and the CIO Auto Workers' Union arc pretty big. They had a disagreement and • strike. ' They talked for days, couldn't reach an agreement, and finally decided to let an outsider, an arbitrator, settle the ftrgumane for them But when you move Into the realm of nations, you're dealing with the biggest there is. And that's the case with the United States, Russia, Britain and France. The foreign ministers ot those four countries have been meeting in Paris for a week, talking out an agreement on Germany. One Ajtainst Three ! So far tney've been miles apart with Russia pitching tor what she tvvnnU and the oilier three, slaiul- :ing together, wanting something .else. • Ah four foreign ministers, Indml : mg Russia's Vishiiv&y, who not Ion;, ago was screaming at the west, nr being very polite. In fact, the New York Time even used the word "gentlemanly to describe the conversations. But at the rate they're goinK the imy keep on being polite for week and wind up nowhere. If they break up, as they've urok en up In the past, at the end a dead-end street, they Just pit- up their marbles and go home. And no outsider, like an arblt rator, can be called In to make decision for them and tell thei what each must do. They're all too big to let an out slder do their thinking (or them, and each has too much at stake. It's too soon to pass Judgment on what's happening in Paris because the meeting only started la-st Monday nnd because— What's happened so far, at lenst on the part of the Russians. Inoks more like sparring than anything else. KunU Wants Reparations So far the Russians haven't contributed a new idea about Germany at »11. The suggestions they've mnrte for running Germany were either tried In the past and failed or they're outdated. The Russians certainly want to win th« good-will of the Germans but after a week in Paris they haven't offered one Idea lhat would Increase their popularity. .' In For example: They're still talking of Setting $10,000.000,000 in reparations from Germany for the • war. The West said that's too tough on the Germans. In the conversations so far the West has looked like a friend ot the Germans. The Russians are ftill talking of Inflicting severe penalties on the Germans for the war. Since It's unlikely the Russians ame to the Paris talks without omc cards up their sleeves. It's 111 too early to talk of Hie outcome Jniversity of Arkansas raduates to Organize ialt Century Club June 4 PAyfriTEVtlXE.

Crawling through the hole, they squeezed through the space between the floor of the fourth story and the ceiling of the third story and then dug through the ceiling of another plumbing closet located on the third story. From the third floor closet they walked down a corridor and a slair- way to Ihe second floor and entered the county Red Cross office.
