MONDAY, JULT 10, 1950 German Refugees from Red Europe Launch Ambitious Political Program (ARK.) COURIER NEWS _ m Is First Set Out for Unified Action KIEL, Germany, July If). (AP) — German refugees from Communist Eastern Europe who showed themselves Sunday to be a strong potential political force In West Germany, today began an ambitions program. In parliamentary votlns yesterday^ they got nearly a quarter of the vote in the Schlcswig-HoLstein elections and won Ifi of the state parliament's 69 scats. There were 1,341,754 voles cast. H WHS the first time West Germany's 10.000,000 refugees hart an opportunity for concerted action. They showed they could be a co hesive force. Future Indicated Nearly 1,000,000 of them live- many In squalor—In this little North German state. West German observers watched their first test at the polls as an Indication of the iuture. Today Walclemar Kraft, first chairman of the Refugee Party (BHE), outlined a brief initial program. Kraft declared thai one of the first moves would-be to organize the refugee party on a West German federal republic level. This done, he said, the refugees voulri demand disolution of the rurrent federal parliament and new elections in which Hie refugee party would take an active part. No complete party platform lias been formally outlined by the' refugees, but their pre-election campaigning stressed these things. 1. Immediate equal sharing of the war burden in West Germany The West German parliament Is contemplating a law which w>~ distribute (he burden among persons financially able to bear it. 2. Quick creation of jobs for UIP riundreds of thousand* of unemployed refugee*. 3. A broad resettlement program to re-locate refugees into «tat*s which do not now have * concentrated population of refugees. 4. Recognition of official rishts 'such as pensions) tor those refugees who held public office before losing them to Nazis or Communists. Not mentioned on today 1 ! program by Kraft but prominent in refugee speeches In West Germany were demands for return of German territories given to Poland by Rasla. The refugees are particularly bitter and anti-Communist on the point of lost territories. The new group cut deeply into the strength of the established political parties. The left wing Social Democratic Party, which has governed Schleswiff-Holsteln for several years, lost its parliamentary majority. It received less than one- third of the vote. Rkht Wing Bloc Wins A right wing bloc—the Christian Democrat 1 !, FJee Democrats anil the German Party—won Jlrst place by pooling their strength behind the fame candidate* in each of the 46 electoral districts. The combine U similar to the right wing coalition federal government »l Bonn, and opposes the state's present socialist planned economy. Final official tabulation cnve tills division of the legislative seats: Right Wing Bloc, 31; Social Democrats, 18; Refugees, 16; south Schleswlg Voters Union, four. Some sources have predicted formation of a government coalition of Social Democrats, who favor socialist economic programs, and the refugees. The official tabula- tion, however, «av< them only M seats, less than a majority. There were indications that the pro-IHnUh Voters Union might throw Iti four vote* behind the right wing bkx, giving such a coalition M votes, or a bare majority. To Extend i'art.r There are some 1,000,000 refugees from East Germany crowded into Scli«les»'ig-Hols<eiu. Their leaders plan nn extension of their new party Into the neighboring state of Ixraer Saxony, also Jammed with the displaced, They also propose to spread Into the U.S. Zone stale PAGE THREB or Bavaria, which is filled with refugee Germans from areas now occupied fcy Poland and Ctecho- £lovakla. Many members ol the refugee party are homeles and Jobless. They based their campaign on complaints that the state and federal governments hnve not done enough to help the refugees. In the West German stale of Hesse, meanwhile, voters approved a constitutional amendment which may deprive the Communists of representation In llw legislature. The amendment authorizes Hie legislature to abandon thn proportional representation system anil opens the way to direct election contests In each district. hk St! this Mate a ieder";'" federal We're Proud of Our Work Machine work Manufacturing Woodwork Welding BARKSDALE MFG.
