PAGE SIXTEEN BLYTHEVJLLE (AWL) COUMKR * ChurchiH or AtttaF ConMrvotKt or Soci«lt«t? Second of a S«HM— Return of Churchill Might Unleash Nation-Rocking Wave of Strikes By LEON »ENNEN NEA Staff Correspondent LONDON—Britain la moving tr- restibly — almost fatalistically — toward a new economic crisis which neither the Tories nor Labor will be in ft position to .solve ivilhout additional U. S. aid. Coal production is running at least 3,000.000 toiis behind coosump tion. There Is an oil shortage primarily due to the Iranian seizure of Abadan. Cuts in power and more rationing this Winter seem Inevitable. The more than S.000,000 members organized in the British Trade Union Congress are getting restless. The Labor government WHS large ly the TUC's baby and the unhappy union leaders had to toe the ifcie Jn the face of mounting criticism from their membership. For six years they had to subsist on the tasteless diet of wage stabilization—while their American counterparts in the AFL nnrt CIO engaged Jn dramatic struggles for higher wages. Despite the eloquent (and desperate) plnns of the Labor Party's speakers, the union members now insist that "it's the Job of the unions to square us with Die cast of living." ''Labor government or Tory gov- ernment—ami God help the Tories if they do get in—we ore going to make it difficult," said a railway- man. "It's our duty. We're going to get a decent living for our men." The national wage average In Britain is n per week (about $20>. This may have been sufficient for a family of three or four—in addition to all the other benefits they get from the welfare state—to exist before inflation set in. But now the lower Income groups find it extremely difficult to mnk« ends meet. Some millions of Britons, nt (lie bottom of the income level, are exempt from paying Income tux. But none Ls exempt front the purchase tax and other "hidden" taxes, AXKURIN BEVAN: The Tories Insist he's not the Duty one with totalitarian Ideas. Father 'Playing Cowboy' Fatally Wounds Son CLEVELAND. Oct. 11. I,T»> — A young father playing cowboy with his two-year-old son killed the boy with a borrowed pistol which he believed was unloaded. The victim was Dale Ferry, only child of Mr. ntul Mrs. Dominic Ferry. The bullet from the .45 calibre automatic ripped through the boy's chest and slightly wounded Mrs. Ferry, 2:t. in the side. Ferry, a 28-year-old truck driver, told police he played cowboys with the boy after they watched a western film on television. PROGRAM SCHEDULE ROSE 860 On Your Thursday, Oct.

The purchase tax on clothing, electrical appliances and leather goods runs from 33 per cent to 125 per cent. On tobacco, cigarets and other luxuries It is nliuost 200 per cent. Rationed foods are relatively cheap. But no family caji subsist entirely on the meager rations. Un- ratloned goods are practically Itl- flccc.s.sib!e to ihc nvcrnjje Hrit-on. A Conservative victory at the polls on Oct. 25 will free the hands of the frustrated union leaders. Already—under Communist and lelt whig pressure "from below"—there are demands for immediate wage Increases and threats of strikes. Winston Churchill's return to power might unleash a strike wavo that would rock Britain and have wide repercussions throughout Europe. In the furious battle of "Election Manifestos" the Tories blame Labor for all of Britain's domestic and foreign troubles. Including the debacle in Jj-aj) and the new crisis over the Suez Canal. They profess to -see In Labor as a whole, not merely ifs left wing "lunatic fringe" led by Ancurin Be/van, a deliberate drive towards the totalitarian stale. Labor gees back to the 1030's to try to demonstrate not only Tory incompetence but also Tory Ill-will towards the wage earners. Labor speakers denounce the Conservatives as greedy "capitalist profiteers" and "warmongers" who will plunge Britain into war practically on the day of their election victory. Unfortunately, both the Laborites and Tories (as the authoritative London Economist recently wrote) appear to be as firmly united as ever on one main proposition—that the voters should not be allowed [.o give a verdict, on the real issues facing the British people. Elderly Mans Lost Bonds Are Found ST. LOUIS, Oct. n. (AP)—Defense bonds worth $8,800, representing part al the money an elderly man said he had dejx>sited in a bank at some small town he couldn't recall, have been found on a street in East St. Louis, 111. The bonds arc to be returned today to nernhart r.evyson, T4. About two weeks ago I.evyson, a Spanish - American War veteran, sought afd from the St. Louis Travelers Aid Society in returning to his home at Van nuren, Ark. He told society authorities he had withdrawn about SO.OOO in government bonds and aobut $700 in cash from a Van Buren bank a few days before. lie said he then deposited the money in another bank In a small town somewhere In Missouri or Illinois. He couldn't remember whore The first lead came when an East St. Louis bank official recalled Lcvyson had been In the bank, but' had bought more government bonds instead of depositing what he had. Police now believe Levyson's bonds and what cash he had were stolen from him and the brmds abandoned when they couldn't be cashed. Crop Harvest Delays Circuit Court Session WALNUT RIDGE. Ark.
