PAOB TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COUKIER NEWS German-Russian Cooperation Is Asked By Stalin of Communists in Germany By DMlri D« Lot* BKRL1N, Oct. 14. in — Joseph SlaUn today told east Germany's »w Communist republic that the German* and Russians together could k«P Europe peaceful by llfhUnt M hard for peace u they fought in war. SUHn'i message of congratulations to east Germany's Communist le&derii: brought predictions from pro-Soviet sources here that the Soviet bloc would sign peace treaties with the new red satellite by January. The» sources claimed tentative drafts of auch treaties already have been prepared. Stalin's congratulatory message Ust night to east Germany's president Wilhelm Plech and Chancellor (premier) Otto Orotewohl called establishment of the satellite regime * "turinlng point In the history o( Europe." He declared that the Russian and German peoples made the greatest sacrifices in World War Two. "If both peoples," Stalin continued, ''will show the same determination to fight with the same intensity of effort for peace with which they waged war, then peace In Europe can be regarded as secure." . "End Bloodshed" The statement was distributed here by ADN, the official Soviet news agency. It was given prominent space In Moscow newspapers today. "There 1« no doubt,". Stalin said, "that- th« existence of a peace- loving, • democratic Germany, along with -tHe 'existence of a peace- loving. Soviet Union, excludes the possibility of new wars in Europe, makes an'end to European bloodshed, and makes impossible the servitude of European countries under .world imperialists." "Both these peoples," the Russian premier declared, "have the largest potentialities in Europe to complete great actions of world significance." The sources who reported the impending peace treaties said the pacts would bind the new enst Ger- "jnim republic to renounce forever any claim on the. former German territory now held by the Soviet Union, Poland and Czechoslovakia. They, would also commit the republic^ give the Soviet Bloc the reparations it demanded and to forego "remilitarization " The Communist Polish regime's representatives in Berlin were especially enthusiastic at the piospect of-a treaty putting the Pohsh- Gerinmn frontier oh the Oder and Nelss* rivers. East of that line, In the former German provinces of Silesia, Ppmerania and East Prussia, six million Poles have settled since the war. An political elements in the allied-sponsored west German republic except Communists have demanded recently that the Oder- Nelss* frontier be revised. The major jpoint of the program of east Germany's Communist Prime Minister Otto Grotewohl Is German renunciation of these eastern war- lost colonies.
