FRIDAY, TUNE 18, 1950 BLYTHEVTLLE. (ARK.) CUURIEK NEWS Jap Reds Challenge U. S. Purge Order By TOM LAMBERT TOKYO, June 16. (/I')—Japanese Communist! today challenged application of General MacArtliur's purge order In the Japanese courts. at The suit, filed in district court, '•peciflcally accused Prime Minister Shigera Yoshlda with violating the constitution by his purge of 41 top Communist leaders and editors. Court officials said they would have to study the Communist complaint before deciding what action they would take. They were doubtful however that the court had jurisdiction since the purge action was taken on direct orders from General MacArthur to trie prime minister, Courts Have No Power The Japanese courts have no power of review of a directive from the supreme commander. Earlier Eiichl Iwata told newsmen that he, as representative o! the central headquarters of the Communist Party, would file the suit. He said It would allege that Yoshida had violated the constitution and the Potsdam Declaration in carrying out Mac/lrlViur's directive to" purge 24 party officials and 17 party newspaper workers. He added that it would request revocation of the purge because \; was intended originally to ban mil- tarlsts from public life and hence did not apply to Communists. Black Into While To try to apply the purge directive to the Communists, Iwata told newsmen. "Is making black what Is while." The Communists ran Into some delay at the court when they attempted to file the complaint. Court attaches insisted that the complaint be in triplicate instead of the single copy presented. Piling of the complaint was the first direct action on the part of the Reds to fish', back against MacArlhur's crackdown ot last week, observers surmised that Its chief purpose was propaganda. The communists did not explain the "violation of the Potsdam Declaration but it was presumed that they will revive the oft-repeated Red phrase which goes like this: "The Potsdam Declaration stipulates that the Japanese govern- lustron Case Heads Toward Appeals Court COLUMBUS, O., June 1«.

When you buy a car on time payments, trie so-called "easy" way, you will find that it is the expensive way. You continue to pay for the extra time you take each and every month until your car is paid for. The smaller your down-payment and the longer the terms—the greater the final cost of your car. Make your down-payment as large as you can and pay as much per month as you can comfortably afford. That's the only sound and economical way to buy a car on time-payments.
