PAGE SIXTEEN JBLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Gen. Bradley Believes Europe Can Be Defended from Attack WASHINGTON, June 6. <JP> — 4 Gen. Omar N. Bradley said today the free nations of Europe, if given time and aid, will be able to rte- Jend m n d hold Western Europe from attack. The chairman of the Joint chiefs at afaff made the statement to th« House Foreign Affairs Committee in supporting President Truman's request or $1,222,500,000 to continue foreign arms program for another year. Bradley said the military aid to Atlantic Treaty Allies already has brought this nation "one step closer lo establishing a reasonable se curity for ourselves as well as for our friends." Ijooking back over the first year of the program, he said "we have confidence In what Is being accomplished." Defense of Europe "A year ago, the successful defense of Western Europe, in the face of a coordinated enemy attack, was a remote possibility. The mil itar'y estimates were discouraging. "But it now appears possible that these European nations, with the help that Ihe United States lias given them, and the strength derived from our collective security planning, will—If given time—be able to defend and hold Western Europe, if our present rate of progress continues." Bradley would not hazard a guess on the time that might be needed. Rep. Smith (R-Kas.) asked whether the situation in Europe Is "critical" or of an emergency nature. Bradley replied: "No Immediate Threat" "I do not think there is any Immediate threat of war but at the same time war might come at any time either by accident or design, ^although I think the chances arc •gainst it." He added that the military aid, plus strong American defense forces, might alone head off any war entirely. The senate foreign relations committee has given indications it probably will rewrite the arms bill to curb President Truman's powers, Sen Vandenberg had the assurance of Secretary of Defense Johnson that he would go along with the rewriting of a section of the bill Vandenberg said now is so broad that It would let President "take in the whole world" In supplying arms. The Michigan senator said he object* to a section that would let the President transfer up to 10 per cent ol the total lunds to give military supplies to any nation whose defense he deems vital to the United States. Stiff Objection* •• Johnson also ran into stiff ob- Jecjlons by Senator Green (D-RI) '»galnst a section .which would per- "niit^ the- President to give arms aid to nations outside the North Atlantic Treaty group. Green said the language Indicated this country might go into the business ol putting down revolutions. Johnson disagreed but he said he wouldn't object to having the section revised. Chairman Connally (D-Tex) of the foreign relations group promls- td the committee will look over the bill with a sharp eye. v ''We don't want to turn a lot of wild militarists loose without any guidance," he said. Supervised Park Program Begins The supervised program to Blytheville's parks and playgrounds began officially yesterday afternoon, J. p. Garrott, director of the Blytheville Y, announced. Mr. Garrott said Ihat Little Park will tie used for baseball and softball as It is the only park equipped with proper facilities for the two sporls.

Crass, president of the University of Oklahoma, said the ruling affecting his school "apparently knocks out all segregation In graduate schools at Oklahoma University." But he added he doe«- n't think it will mean a great Influx of Negro students next fall. Soulh Carolina's Gov. J. Strom Thurmond, candidate for President, in !9!8 on a States Rights ticket, said In a statement: "Fruits of Truman" " decisions are the frails of the campaign President rriunan and his cohorts have been waging against the South for many months. It is apparent that they are a part o( the effort to destroy states' lights in this country." President Samuel Higgins of Allen (Negro) University at Columbia, S.C., said the decision In the educational case.s "sets forth the spirit of American Democracy". fn the Texas and Oklahoma cases, the court stuck by the old legal theory of "separate but equal." Dili the decisions caught the South with its "equal" facilities for Negroes down. Not. one Southern state supports a Negro medical school. Not, one -southern Negro university can award R Ph. D. degree.' M. D. Collins. Georgia's public school superintendent, estimated it would take S100.0C.O.OOO to bring this state's Negro public schools to a par with the while schools. "Line Is Drawn" Governor Talmadge added in his statement: "The line Is drawn. The threats that have been held over the head of the South for four years are now pointed like a dagger ready to be plunged into the very heart »f Southern tradition." The Atlanta Constitution observed editorially: KcvitMv Is Ignored "The court pointedly refused to review a 54-year-old doctrine that separate but equal facilities comply \vith constitutional requirements. It merely found in the Texas case that equal facilities were not offered. In the Oklahoma case it found that the state, having admitted Negro students to the same classroom, discriminated against them by requiring that they sit in separate rows. "The Texas decision was not unexpected. It ought to serve as a warning to Georgia and the South that educational facilities must BE Mlfo MONEY AHEAD... FOR A DODGE TODAY!

U.S. Congressmen Offer Plan For Disarmament Meeting WASHINGTON, June 8. W) — *> Seven senators and four representatives proposed loday that th« United Nations call an Immediate disarmament conference. The 11 lawmakers offered a resolution which would pledge the United States to turn over to the U.N. for peace developments the funds that .would be saved In the next five years by any workable disarmament agreement.

Iffi _. fc Senate crime Investigallon turned suddenly today to the underworld'* traffic In narcotics. Senators have a strong susptAn that overlords of organized g«Tn- bling and crime have—or have had —a finger in the narcotics traffic. They are searching for proof. The first witness on the subject was commissioner H. J. Anslinger of the U.S. Bureau of Narcotics— the government's top expert in the field. House Group Votes To Keep Bulb Tax WASHINGTON, June 6. M>).-The House Ways and Means Committee reversed ILself today and voted to retain 'he 20 per cent excise tax on light bulbs. But It went ahead to give final approval to other excise cuts that pushed total proposed reductions to S1.0D5.000.000 a year. These slashes only tentatively voted earlier, would apply to telephone, telegraph, travel ticket and property transportation I axes. The committee also stood by a previous decision rejecting an administration proposal for a 10 per cent levy on television sets that would have yielded $45.000,000 annually.
