BTX BLYTHEVILLE (AUK.) COURIER NEWS Soviet Paper Sees War Threat at Polish Border BERLFN, June 12. W—A Soviet flwupatlon newspaper threatened Yesterday that "any altempt to annul Poland's annexation of German territory would provoke a new war."

Announcement Assailr-il Both the West, German government and the western Allies have assailed the announcement last Wednesday that the East German and Polish governments had agreed on the river line as the "permanent" boundary. The line cedes to Poland 38,936 square miles of former Germany territory which Poland has administered under the Potsdam agreement. The Western allies'contend that the final fate of this territory must, be decided in the German peace treaty. The. United States had refused to recognize the Oder-Ncisse line the Soviet newspaper asserted, because "it intended at a given time lo make the unclarificd frontier (he occasion for a third World War, as Hitler used the Polish corridor." \Vestern Charges Western Allied sources termed the newspaper's charges a new attempt to convince the Soviet bloc countries that Western nations are preparing armed aggression against them. Meanwhile at Fulda, in West Germany, 50,000 refugees from the Polish-occupied section of Germany and from Czechoslovakia staged a protest march and rally against | the Polish-east German agreement. t No incidents were reported.
