FAOR' E, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY. MAT 4, Soviet Propaganda Seen in Germany s By Richard Oregon FRANKFORT, Germany, May 4. (/p,_The growing tendency by West Germany's press to soft-pedal cold war Issues is being viewed by political observers here as a victory for the Russian propaganda machine. An analysis of the German press by the U.S. High Commission's 'Ifcess and publications branch shows » recent trend toward adopting a neutral attitude on most American- Soviet disputes except unification of Germany. Political observers In West Germany believe these newspapers are accepting the line Russia has long trumpeted: that the East-West struggle is none of their affair. Pact Attacked Some solidly anti-Communist anc 'pro-West newspapers have gone so far in their striving for neutrality asito attack bitterly the possibility olAiermany's joining the North At lantlc Defense Pact. The latest review of press trend by the U.S. High Commission' press and publications branch say the German press is following th cold war with "mixed feelings." How much the newspapers 1 Western Germany reflect publi opinion Is not accurately knowi since many have political axes ' grind. The review has this to say abou le noticeable trend: "The press has always whole- eartedly welcomed the firm atti- udc of the United States, especially i Berlin. However, noticeable re- erve In dealing with this (cold •ar) problem now Is being mani- ested, due to the substantially harper tone with which the United "states now speak: to the Soviets nd the announcement of a step- ling up of propaganda activity." The review says the press appears o harbor the thought that if Gcr- nany is not one day to become the arena of Ideological struggle "it be- looves all Germans not to let .hemselves be unduly influences b> one side or the other." Comment Cited The review cites as prime examples these comments: "We are utterly opposed to Wes! Germany's joining the Atlantii Pact," said the Protestant news paper Christ und Welt. It said joining such a pact would cut the Wes Germans off from their last con tact with their easiern brothers who form almost a third of Ger many's population. The Sonnlagsblalt of Hnmbuif cried out similarly against Wc.s Germany's joining the Council o Europe—tile Western European ad visory parliament aiming- at United States of Europe. Success Press Sonntagsblatt said that » "West Germany In a European council vhlch Is part of the Atlantic sys- em must lend to renewed efforts o completely bolshevize Eastern Germany." The Wicsiradcner Wirier recently commented, "the time when Anierl- c,i could have imposed her wishes on a war-tired Russia has gone. . When will the West learn that the cold war cannot be won witli propaganda straw fire?" Horses Unsanitary, Housewives Complain SAN ANSELMO, Cnlif., May 4.
