FRIDAY, JULY T, 1950 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COUKIER NEWS Russians Step Up Summer Maneuvers PAGE SEVTH Soviet Divisions ' Begin Exercises In East Germany By THOMAS A. REEDY ^UERLIN, July 7. (/!'>—U.S. Intel- fl^ncc agents disclosed today that the Russians have stepped \ip nor- inal .summer maneuvers In East Germany. These Informants said that fn Enst Germany eight Soviet divisions are going through special exercises Some Involve lank-supjwrted river crossings. Experts, who with Increased In- teiest have noted every Russian move here since the Korean fight Ing broke out,, said this Increasec Red troop activity could be a normal step—designed to let the Germans know who Is boss and possibly to give Western Allies a dose oi jitters, A senior American . officer concurred In tills view nnri said Alllec military leaders aren't too concern' ed about the stepped-up Sovie maneuvers, American Intelligence agents have been told to watch the Russian moves closely, however, on th« chance that the Soviets might b. planning to stage something similar to the Korean action over here. 5 Divisions Train The Informants said that five Soviet divisions are training between Berlin and the Elbe River. 3fcey reported anojher three Rod ^jw'sfons holding war games north faT Berlin in the Mecklenberg area. trying'to illustrate the best, ways of encircling the fortified position. In the course of the maneuvers, the Russians have shifted divisions from Magdeburg to Dessau • and north from there along the Elbe River, facing the British zone. Between now and the end of August, Allied experts believe the Russians will stage at least half a dozen maneuvers to sharpen the training of their Enst German armies. The people's police, who have been expanded into what amounts to an infantry force, will be used for odd Jobs in these maneuvers. Maneuvers Minimized The high American officer, minimizing the significance of the maneuvers, commented: "The Soviet army in East Germany was 20 divisions in 1946. It is 20 divisions in 1950- It Is no bigger than before and certainly a lot less effective than In the past. The total number of Red Soldiers is peg' ged at about 2,000,000. The Korean outburst did not affect It in the least. "One thing has happened," he added. "Soviet soldiers with three years foreign experience have been recalled. This means replacement with rookies.

These mc;i arc commanded by Virginia Military lusti*. tute graduate General Sun U Jen- Germany have been getting young \ boys who have a lot to learn." \ Armed Force Kept The Russians have always maintained an armed force In East Germany as large as the combined American, British and French force in the west. Intelligence sources say this relationship has not changed but add that the Russians decided six months ago they were under- armed and sent in anti-aircraft battalions to bolster infantry divisions. They also shifted numerous tank outfits from the Balkans to Germany. Observers now estimate that the Russians have 2,0(10 tanks in the East zone—far more than the combined Western armored forces could possibly muster. Introduction of antiaircraft units was not considered unusual by Allied military observers. Until recently Soviet Infantry divisions simply lacked this essential part of their makeup.
