FAfil? 'I JIN BLYTTTBYTLLB, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Allies Chilly to German Police Proposal Request Tosses New Hot issue At West Powers ' By BRACK CURKY FRANKFURT, Germany. June 6, (4*j—High Allied officials arc giving n chilly reception to West German government proposals to form a federal police force. The Germans have Just lossetJ a politically embarrassing issue into the laps of the Allied high commissioners by asking for 25,000 police ansuernble only to the federal government at Bonn. Allied officials said they ate fcnr- fu] of the reaction in HriUiin, i ; Francc and America if they give En to the German request. The French, particularly, fear a central- ireci police force would be converted into a new German army. No Kin ill Decision However, there has been no final decision on the request by West German Chancellor Konrad Aden, atier. A decision probably will be marie .within A month by the Allied high commissioners. Officials here call the issue one of the most explosive to face the Allies since the Germa occupation began five years ago. Such complex questions as thes be answered before the Allle can give the Germans their deci sion: 1'iiblic Opinion? How will public opinion in th , West, especially security-consclou France, react to the creation of t police force which could form th mic'eus of a new Wehrmacht? What safeguards could be .set uj to prevent this; force from acting a. a cloak for the formation of a new German Army? How could the Allies and Wes Germans offset the inevitable Sovie propaganda attacks on the creation of a force which Ihe Communist would certainly call a Germar B rmy ? Is there a real need for a centra police force when the state police could be expanded? Police Broken Down The autocratic central police system ot the Hitler regime has been broken down by the Allies since 1945. In Its place, each of the West German states now his its'own separate police. These now total about 100,000 men.armed with light wea pons. ^ - . Now .Adenauer has told the Allies that the state police are inadequate. He aays he needs federal police for "prestige and security reasons." While the West German police have been broken down Into separate state groups, Soviet Russia has molded a Nazi-type police system Independent of slate control in East Germany. This force Is directly under the thumb of the Communist Interior ministry. Its objective 's not mnhitenance of law but maintenance 7 of the Communist government, . It Included a militia of 50.000 men •quipped with heavy weapons. The Allies have charged that this militia "has the character of an army." Stalin Given Clothing 'Bird' WASHINGTON, June , 8.
