WEDNESDAY, MAY 7, 1952 Art Stalin's Co/onies BLYniEVIU.S (ARK.) COURIER NEWS- Spark o/ /.ifcerty Still Glowing Among Peasants in Red Poland Editors Note: Cliaolic conditions, «nd the grim overcast a! /ear, rule today In the European countries which stslln has turned Into colonies. Of the satellites, Poland Is particularly valuable to Stalin because It provides p. bridge to Germany j and the riches that lie bevoml. How B|re things in Poland today? William i,. Ryan interviewed scores of persons abroad and in the United States to present below the best available information. This is the third In 'a series of five articles on the satellites. By WILLIAM L. KVAn AP Foreign News Analyst The spark of liberty still glows in subjugated Poland. Many a Polish peasant risks his freedom and even his life to keep the spark aglow. Marry a city dweller takes a long chance to give expression to his contempt for the Communists who are Moscow's willine tools. Against the might of Soviet anus, airainst an army run by Russian officers and a secret police system which honeycombs the nation with s|)ies. the Polish resistance la pathetically weak. But it is there — and it lives in hope that some day it will have help Stalin Tirlsls Screws For more than seven years Stalin has been twisting the screws on Poland, transforming it into n .Soviet colony. The Kremlin has ^stalled a Soviet marshal with double Russian and Polish citizenship as its viceroy. But with each new indignity, the ancient enmity of Poles for Russians burns more fiercely. Even the kids in the streets of Polish cities reflect sullen, bitter mockery for those who are Moscow's willing tools. Kids still imitate American ways, to the rage of the party. They go to extremes to try to dress American style and act like Americans, and the party rants about "Western decadence." There used to be American movies in Warsaw. Now there is nothing much but Soviet propaganda. The movie houses showing the Soviet films are almost empty, except when mass attendance is ordered by the party. Even then, from the darkness of the movie house come jeers and catcalls at Moscow propaganda. They Still Resist They are still resisting on the Inrms. The stubborn Polish farmers shy away from collectivization. The government, (earing the consequences, must proceed slowly. Only about 5 per cent of Poland's peasants are on collective farms and 10 per cent more on state farms, which are bigger. Most of these are in former German territory. They are resisting in the forests and in the factories. A guess is that 60.000 persons are actively engaged in underground work in Poland. These include members of the Pak CPolska Armla Krajowa, or Polish Home Army) and the Roak, a movement which makes armed stabs against Communists. There have been arrests, trials and executions, but still the cells of resistance go on. working in units of three in attempts to escape detection. Humiliation of Communists is a Honk weapon, m one instance, Roak fighters seized a Communist official and stripped him. They sent the clothing to the local Communist leader with a letter tellin? of the incident. The story spread. In another instance, partisans invaded the home of a Communist village mayor, locked his family in the cellar and beat him up. Many partisans have escaped from labor camps. They live off the land and peasants help them. Enraged, Ihe U.S., the dread secret police, stages frequent roundups, frequent invasions of homes in the dead of night. Party activists also are sent out on spot checks and similar missions to root out partisans. But the secret police fear enemies in their own ranms. U.B. agents spy upon one another. Many other spies are hired, some of them youngsters under 16. The liaison department of the Foreign Ministry is controlled by the secret police, and so is the special school for training lower personnel and officials of the Foreign Afinistry. System One of Terror The system is one of terror. Its chief weapon is a chain of prisons and concentration camps. The U.B. and its companion police organizaton, the K.B.W.. or security force, are not responsible to the government. Like Ihe Army of 500,000 or more, the police units come under Konstantin Roko.ssov- sky. a Soviet Army marshal who is now Poland's defense minister and Moscow's viceroy. The party is laced with suspicion. Wlndislnw Gomulka, former vice premier, awaits trial for •Titolsm." Jailed also is Ihe former Army commander. Gen. Marian Spychalski. There had been reports that Hilary Mine, ihe Communists' economic boss, was in trouble too But he is still riding high, a [|er bowing to Moscow's demands to push through some unpopular measures. Many Holes still hope for a day of liberation. The hope is shared by exiled leaders. SUnislaw Mik- olajcv.yk, former Premier and head of Ihe Polish Peasant paiiy. is an exile in the United Stales. Vie puts it this way: "It does not matter when, where or why the beginning of ihe liberation will come, but one thing Is sure: Our, people believe It will come, and they are able to endure the terror and intimidation. .And surely In the decisive moment Ihey will rise up and help in the liberation of their country."

But the problem is to put that energy to work. So Buick engineers aren't content just to mix that drop with air and touch it off. They've designed an engine that brings it catapulting into a cylinder head where it strikes a turbo-top piston —gets whipped into a churning, swirling ball of tight-packed energy. TJien it's fired. And when that happens, a drop of gasoline certainly lets loose power. Ihis isn't something that happens in a "car of the future." It happens in a'Buick Fireball 8 Engine today. It's a high-compression engine. It's a valve-in-head engine. But it's also a Fireball in performance as well as name. And it puts extra power under the hood -and extra miles in the fuel back in the gas tank. iNow, power is great, but what goes with it? Mister, that's something you ought to find out—and soon. What goes with it is an automobile as sweet-handling, eager and willing as anything that ever made your pulse leap to a faster beat. It's a car that seems to know what you want it to do—true and sure in its course on a straightaway-^beautifully balanced on curves. It's a car with Dynaflow Drive* to feed power with infinite smoothness—and a road-hugging fcvelncss of ride that took a million in cold cash to perfect. And it is, with ail this, a very tidy bargain. Why not price it, drive it, know it for yourself? We'll he glad to arrange a demonstration. Equipment, atceuvrm, trim m j m «i c \ s are ,,^i fel „ ch u about notice.
