BLYTHETILLl (ARlC.y COURIER NEW! MONDAY, AUGUST f, 1954 Reds Feel Time Is Ripe to Press For Isolation of US in Europe, Asia B7 LEON DENNEN JfEA Staff Correspondent BERLIN — -(NBA) — Victory in Indo-Cbina and Western dissension seem to have convinced the Reds that time is ripe for an all-out drive to isolate the U. S., not only in Asia but also in Europe. The free world is rapidly approaching the eleventh hour in West Germany," one of the ablest U.S. officials in Berlin told XEA Service. Pravda r/x'ikes it clear that the Kremlin wants a Europe divorced from "imperialist America" and' completely at Russia's mercy. Such a plan was also outlined July 2 by East German "Premier" Otto Grotewohl at a secret session of top Red chiefs according to the underground anti- Communist Information" Bureau of West Berlin. * * * Grotewohl went to Moscow to confer with Soviet Premier Georgi M. Malenkov. He quoted Malenkov as saying: "Conversations of Soviet Ambassadors in Ixmdon and Paris as well a* talks with a number of West European diplomats in Moscow indicate a growing: readiness to accept the Soviet proposal for a European Security Pact." The offer to discard the European Defense Community .in favor of a pact which would include Russia—but exclude the U. S.—was first made by Moscow at the Berlin Big'Four meeting. It was rejected by-the West. However, the political climate in Europe has been radically changed by the Geneva conference. As a result of the Red victory in Indo- China, TJ.

Jfew hopes have been raised that the willingness of the Moscow- Feiping Axis to negotiate on IncLo- China now makes possible a settlement of differences on Germany. "How much longer will Chancellor Konrad Adenauer be able to keep the Bonn Republic in the democratic camp?" asked the U.S. official quited above. As this diplomat sees it, tht present danger is that the whole European policy of Chancellor Adenauer may be written off by Germans as a failure if France delays its decision on EDC much longer.

By ALLAN JACKS BELGRADE, Yugoslavia W — The centuries-olcl practice of a tiny Albanian minority in Yugoslavia—selling girl brides—poses the government one of its toughest social problems. President Tito's Communist regime has been trying, principally through education and propaganda, to stamp out the practice, but it is slow business. The difficulty was pointed up recently in a report from the district of Orahovac in the southern Yugoslav province of Kosmet. Young girls still are being sold to husbands there for as much as 300,000 dinars ($1,000). Even worse, said the report, greedy fathers are selling their daughters to old men who can pay the highest prices. Bride selling is a custom of Moslem Sciptars (Albanians), a custom as old as the opposite practice of a . girl taking a dowry to her husband. To this day many young Sciptars leave their native villages to find jobs in more re- Former Mental PatientTellsOf Brutal Beating DETROIT (ffl—A 33-year-old man who told police he beat and kicked his mother to death last night "because she was possessed of the Devil" was held as a police prisoner today in a hospital mental ward. Glenn Green told Detective David Harris that he assaulted his mother, Mrs. Alice Green, 70, of Vicco, Ky., as she lay in bed "because she was possessed of the Devil and the Bible says the only thing to do is to beat the Devil out of them." Mrs. Green was visiting her son, his wife and two children. She died shortly after admittance to Receiving Hospital with a fractured skull and internal injuries. Green's wife Ollie Louis, 21, told police her husband pulled his mother from her bed, beat her, threw her to the floor and stamped on her. Mrs. Green said her husband first, showed signs of a mental strain while training with the Army reserve; at Ft. Eustis, Va., last June. He is a veteran of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. She said he had been admitted to Valley Forge (Pa.) General Hospital, where doctors said he was a violent mental case. She said she had checked him out of the hospital against the Army's wishes. As Green was being locked up, he asked police, "Is my mother dead?" When told she wasn't, (police had not yet learned of Mrs. Green's death) he remarked: "That is too bad, because if she lives the Devil will leave her and get into me."
