TUESDAY, JULY 25, 19-14 SINGLE COPIES FIVE;CENTS' TODAF'8 WAR ANALYSIS East Europe Poses Knotty Peace Problem By JAMES HABFKB United Frew gun Writer Eastern Europe, now a military problem for Germany, soon will become a political problem fur the whole world. The area Is not only the birthplace of the war, but also the birthplace of some of the war's knottiest problems. Conquering tribes, have washed, tide- like, across Its flatlands, then receded, after depositing a sediment of their own peoples. The whole area Is checkered by different nationalities, Poles, Ru- thenians, Jews, Ukrainians, Ger- mins, Romanians, Letts, Swedes and others. Each has, , „ „ —its own desire for . JamcsHar P«.independence, its own suspicion of rival groups, Its own religion and set of customs. Thus, eastern Europe is a breeding ground for discontent. Let's take a few examples. It's a • safe guess that the Red army soon will take Dvinsk, Daugavpils nnd Dunabure al the same moment. Because they're the names of one city. For centuries national boundaries have ceaselessly swung back and forth across it. When the Russians owned'.the city they called it Dvinsk, then the Latvians owned it they called It Daugavpils, then the :' Germans owned it they called it . Dunaburg? In addition, the Poles, > Swedes and Lithuanians have con* 'Colled it witnmjt Bothering to cJFvnge' the current name. --Each conquering nation left behtnd.soijie of'flit, own people, so that Ihe'poinU .latibn'now is an ethnological.hash Nearby' Kaunas has been burned 13 _. tiijies^by/ Invading armies:.;. /) Many Changes •As, another example, take'the city with 'flic dark-bark namef Lwow. It was founded by, Ukrainians, conquered by Tartars/reconquered by roles, soon became^ Austrian, re" turned to Poland, w^as taken by Germany and is about to be recon- quered by Us founders, men of the Ukraine. The city is a Polish island in a Ukrainian sea. One of the knottiest problems ' in eastern Galatla Is this: The cllies are made up of Poles and Jews, and Ihe rural districts are populated by Ukrainians, or little Russians. In addition, Lwow has large Armenian, German' and Italian populations. : The nearby city ot Brest-Litovsk, now surrounded by Ihe Red army, has changed hands last in recent times. Russian before World War 1, it became German during the war aiid Polish afterwards. Neighboring Biulyslok was Polish until 1795, then Prussian, then Russian, then German, then Polish again, then German, And soon it will return to Russia. Nationalises Mixed This is only a sample of the hcl- erogeneous mixluie of races and peoples populating, eastern Europe. No man can draw a line and say that all on one side of It are of a certain nationality and all on the other are of a different nationality. Modern Poland was carved from ' territory owned by three powers. Russia held the bulk of the country, Germany owned its seacoast and western areas, Austria held the southern part, called Galitia. After the War all'Poland's landlords were evicted ,and the Allies went to work on Its boundaries. The western and southern frontiers were easy, but the eastern line was a problem. Poland wanted a big slice to the southeast but the Ukrainians objected. It wanted a large area to the north- casl, but the Rulhenians and Lithuanians hart other Ideas. Tlie Allies suggested what came to IK known as the Curzon Line. Bui by that time the guns were firing and Poland and Russia were fighling it out. The Poles finally beat Russia lo Its knees and grabber! a laigc slice of Ruthenla and the Ukraine. But Moscow never forgot. Tlie Baltics, like. Poland, have been kicked around for cenluries for Instance, Latvia was ruled successively by Germany, Sweden, Poland and Russia. Estonia by Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Russia. *"- Tlic Red army now is ruling that ™ Germany shall not own those nations. It's up to the post-war peace makers to decide who shall own Ihem.

The state is electing a governor, a senator, two congress- u. and a galaxy of minor officials. Negroes lire voting, too. When Secretary J. If McCotiico 9f the Arkansas Negro Democratic Association appeared at the polls this forenoon, he was given a ballot because the record showed he had paid his poll tax. ' ' Election officials say they linvc.t— : —— been inslrucled lo allow Negroes lo vote if they have paid their poll lux and If they pledge themselves to support the Democratic nominees. McConico says the word will be passed out In ,t!ie slale today and lhal perhaps 10,000 Negroes will vole In Ihe Democratic primary for the first time In history. Meanwhile, a hot sun is shinini; down on the voters who must give their preference for the runoff primary two weeks from now. All the candldalcs for major office have expressed optimism at Ihc result. They include Governor Adkiiw, Colonel Barlon, Senator Caraway, and Congressman Yulbright in the Senate race, and Bryan Sims, Dav-j Terry and Ben Laney In the governor's race. The powerful Garland. Comity Democralic machine'has put out a partial list of preferences In Iho, primary. At a meeting in Hot Springs this morning. Mayor. Leo McLaughlin expressed no preference in the Senate race other than to say Fulbright. Barton nnd Senator Caraway always had been friendly to Hot Springs. He ignored the governor's race. Olhcrs getling a'nod of approval from McLaughlin were J. L. Shaver for lleulcnant governor, Guy Williams for attorney general, J. Oscar Humphrey for auditor and Lawrence C. Aulen for associate justice of the Supreme Court. The weather man has backtracked on his prediction of Ihundershowers.
