(AP)—The miners and steel workers of the Ruhr Valley rejected Russia's policies in Germany and gave Communism a crushing defeat at the jwlls yesterday. But while they rejected Communism, the same workers voted for a state constitution calling for socialization oJ' the Ruhr's basic industries. * The Ruhr workers elected a legislature for their home state o( north-Westphalia, in the. British occupation zone. It Is Die most populous state of West Germany, willi 9,000,000 registered voters. This Is because of the strength gained In the legislature by conservative and right-wing parties which generally oppose soclaliza- cash at a store. then the shotgun which belonged to another Negro. Three Arrested The three were arrested at the intersection of Division and Ash Streets by Deputy Sheriff Charles Short, Chief of police John Poster and Tom Smallcy, criminal investigator of the Arkansas State Police who had set up a road block at tlic traffic light at the Intersection. Sheriff William Berryman said this morning that Baker had admitted the crime but said in his confession that Fleming and the woman hud nothing to do with the actual taking of tlie money. However, the sheriff said that charges of grand larceny will be filed a- against all three. Wohian Ticket! Up Baker and Fleming told officers they picked up-the "Samoan" \vo- on Highway 61 near West Memphis. Smith, after he had been freed by Baker, notified Charles Howard, on whose farm he works, and reported the affair to him. Howard then notified officers and took out in pursuit of the car in which the trio was riding. Roadblocks were set up at Osccola and here by the officers. The smoky Rhur powerhouse once was' west. Germany's Communist stronghold. Three years ago, the Communists got 14 per cent of the vole. They were the third largest party in the state. Yesterday, they got 5.5 per cent, and went into fifth place. Max Relmann, Iheir leader, trailed badly n Dortmund. The thousands of workers who had voted Communist before turned their backs on Russia and blasted Communist hopes of winning the Ruhr from the West. They apparently spoke for all of Wcsl Germany's 46,000,000 people who condemn Russian policies In East Germany. At the same time, the north Rhine - Westplialian voters also showed they have no love for resurgent German nationalism.

By a quirk o! local politics, th conservative voters were responslbl for approval or a constitution call ing fur socialization. They ap parently voted for the constitulioi because it contained a. provisloi calling for denominational school administered by the churches. Many Socialists, however, have opposed the constitution because of tlie school Issue. The exact nature and extent ot possible socialization is not clear in (he constitution.

Neither the Communists nor the extreme right winsr and nationalist larties got a single mrm elected directly. The Communists received their 12 seats on the hasis of votes east throughout tlie state. Because the extreme right wingers did not receive as much as five per cent of the vote, they get no seats in the legislature. ' The Communists lost their strength to right wing parties.
