WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5, 1938 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Europe's Question Mark 4 Russia 1938's Big Puzzle; France Unsure of Her Value As Ally BY MILTON BRONN'ER JSfcA Service Stall Correspondent LONDON. Jan. 1.—Soviet Russia enters the new year as the great question mark of world politics. Particularly perplexed is the French government. For Prance lias an alliance with Russia. That alii- ' ance does not sit too well with England and is a cause of distrust on the part of Poland. Two other friends of Prance—Rumania and Yugoslavia—do not like this Franco- Kusslan partnership. Rumania is afraid the Soviets may try to take Bessarabia bnck. Yugoslavia—fillet) •with White Russian emigres—has never had any dealings with Soviet Russia. But aside from tills diplomatic angle, France would give a good deal to know just what material value this Russian partner means to Prance In case of trouble. Russian Progress Intrigued France Etalin is the bi When Prance signed her pac 1 with Soviet Russia, all seemed fair In the military garden. The Soviets had built up their Red Army to the point where it was the largest In the world. They had one of the hlwest air forces in the world. There was considerable secrecy about their navy, but it was darkly hinted they had a much bigger and more powerful submarine force than was generally believed. Furthermore, by reason of the i various Piv= Year plin', th» n»r (T Russia, unlike the Russia of the .*• Czars, had a large home industry, capable of manufacturing al the arms and munitions the country might need. Also in the Spanish civil war—where Russian planes, tanks and guns were tested against similar weapons- of German and Italian origin, the Soviet material had stood up well. So far, so good. Purges Indicate Weakness Within But then began the terrifying series of "purses" by special courts In Russia, followed by dozens ol executions of men who had hek the highest posts in the Soviet state—executives, generals, airforee experts, munitions technicians, mine authorities, manufacturing superintendents, diplomats. All of them were charged with treason to the state or with sabotage or with favoring foreign powers. The In- urmise was: „„ „.„ question mark in the Franco-Russian pact as ho smokes out the foes who harass his regime. Sun's Son Is Soviet Envoy I .. Kf j ' ' ^tkyaiJic aui ii«i3^ nw. 1—Either Hliese men were"'adherents of Trotzky and so eliminated to make the Stalin regime more solid on its foundations. 2—Or they were genuine traitors In either case, it revealed a slate of affairs in which the business of Soviet Russia was honeycombed with people who hated the regime and wished it no good. A government thus menaced and harassed, which seeks and finds traitors under every bush and In every nook and corner. Is probably badly crippled at the start. Stalin Is Key To Internal Puzzle At least, that is what an increasing number of Frenchmen fear They are \vondjring wlVfher in that next war history would not repeal itself, with Russia once more dropping out of the contest, once more beaten from within rather than from without. The main hope of the Frenchmen, who still anxiously desire the alliance, is that Stalin is really the man of steel; that he knows what IV he Is doing and is setting about It I P l with iron purpose; that when he ' * gets through with his purge, he will have a Stalinized Russia stronger than that country has ever been in all its history.

Jan. 5. — ecret New Denl program for deal- lie with the monopoly problem ml curbing great concentrations if financial-economic power calls or action along these lines: 1. Rewriting the anti-trust laws n the IlKht ot Supreme Court decisions which have 'made those laws unenforceable. 2. Revision o fthe Federal Trade Commission statutes In such manner that the Supreme Court will be compelled by law lo respect the FTC's findings of fact In monopoly cases. 3. Disqualifications of all identical bids by companies seeking government business, 4. A tax program which will case or remove the cor|x>ralion surplus profits tax as it applies to small corporations, but keep It operative lor big corporations. 5. A general policy of heavy taxation of "over-shied" cor|>ora lions, possibly with Ihe aim ol making It impassible for holding companies to operate in interslute commerce. C. Hcf|uirement that imllvldua corporations doing interstate business be required to have a cerUih number of competitors. A large industrial corporation, for instance might by prohibitive taxation o some other method, be prevented from doing more than 25 per cent ly shown n disposition to ditch anything lloosevell wants tally.
