(U.P.)— Tho official Moscow newspaper Pravnd'i today accused Winston Churchill of trying to start a war against Russia and warned that an Anglo- America!! military alliance woud mean the death of the United Nations Organization. Pravada unleashed its full fury against the wartime Kntish premier in an editorial denouncing his speech at r-uHon, Mo., six days ago.

Woman's Body Found As the search continued among tile ruins, to ascertain if they had been burned to death, the charred body of the woman was found lying on bed springs, the remainder or the bed having burned. There was no other body found in the house. Whether she had been slain before burning could not be ascertained because of condition of the body, according to Ernest Caston," Negro undertaker. Police were notified about 6 a.m., that Dowell's. • former wife. Retha Dowell. 64. had been found fatally ho professes himself. "A military alliance of two partners of the coalition anainst the third means the liquidation of the coalition of the three great powers which was formed during the Second World War. Thus in one stroke Churchill sweeps away what he had helped to build during the war." Caustically remarking (hut Churchill fancies himself ns the saviour of Europe Iiom Communism. Pravcla said his plan was "a policy of force" which M-ould mean liquidation of the UNO. Then it referred to his st'ato- im-nt rejecting the inevitability ol a new war.

A Moscow dispatch from United Press correspondent Henry Shapiro described the Pravda article as "bit- :er, vigorous Inngungc such as is seldom used" in that paper.

A gun, found outside the house, was identified by relatives us the property of Dowell. Police Chief William Berryman said. Dowell's former wife, who lived alone, was described as a woman of good character with no known enemies. She had been shot below the neck by some one who had .entered through the front door as blowiy tracks were found both inside the house and on the front porch. Hei body was. lying on the floor ncai the front door. Whether Retha Dowell voluntarily allowed the intruder to enter the house was unknown but otflcer; said it appeared that she unlocked the door in answer to a knock and that Ihe slayer entered the house and then shot her. All other doors were fastened. As officers continued their search for the man who had been married to both dead women, they received ;\ report that the Seratt house hart been fired mysteriously but that the llamcs had extinguished before serious damage was done. Mrs. Scralt, while working this morning in the yard of the farm , residence two miles south on HiGh- way 61, saw a charred wall or her home an ( l nearby were soaked rags and a can which smelled of both kerosence and gasoline.

Officers were working on the theory that Dowell suddenly may have become deranged to cause him (o slay his- present wife, destroy the house, slay his former wife and then fire' the residence of Mr. crite fo Russia. The editorial filled three columns on Pravdn's front ftngc. While Radio Moscow was slamming at Churchill, a United '.Press dispatch reported the unexriectcd and unexplained postponement of and that if the state had sufficient' trlcal Workers Union and the General Electric Co. resinned' negotiations In New York City in an effort to end a two-month-old strike of the Supremnr.Boviet, meeting in Moscow from today until 5 p. m. Tuesday. The Russian denunciation of Churchill contained more fury and invective than nny Moscow pronouncement, about a major' world figure except Adolf Hitler. The editorial was broadcast three tlmu&. Pravda -said the proposed alliance against Russia "would Ijc directed against that power which bore on Its shoulders the main burden of the war and performed the decisive part in the defeat of Hitlerite Germany." The editorial appeared to admit that such an alliance would "ensure Anglo-American domination over the whole world." It said Churchill wanted to use the alliance to continue British imperialistic policies. Pravdn slapped tit Sen. Arthur Vandenburg. R.. Mich., who rcccut- ly urged a stronger American policy toward Russia. "The false speeches on democracy and freedom made by reactionaries of the Churchill type and his American friends of Ihc Vandenberg camp will not succeed in deceiving those who arc real friends of both democracy and freedom." it said. With bitter irony Pravda said that the only consolation Churchill finds in Eastern Europe is in Athens. '•Churchill's idea or liberated Greece is a CTrccce where Fascist and monarchist activity Ls freely carried out funds to remodel its road system there would not be near enough j construction workers and contrac-1 tors to do the job, in his opinion.

A strike at the Glenn L. Martin Airplane factory. Baltimore, Md., was iivprtcd when CIO employes accepted an 11-cent hourly wage Increase. President A. F.

Pravda said Churchill's plan for aligning the western powers "does not lack the open formulae of a cordon sanitaire against the Soviet Union." It' accused Churchill of masking his real feelings against Comrnun-«cloudy, ism throughout the war and hiding "intentions and plans which arc hostile to tho Soviet Union." The Pravda warning of the possible destruction of the UNO appeared to reter only to developments thai would follow adoption of a formal Anglo-American alliance, rather than to t'.ic present international situation.
