BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THS DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOL. LI—NO. 178 Blytheville Courier Blytheville Daily Newi Blytheville Herald Mississippi Valley Leader BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1956 TWENTY-FOUR PAGES Except Sunday SINGLE COPY FIVE CENT8 Fight for UN Seat Is Deadlocked Yugoslavia's Chances Hurt By U.S. Move By TOM I1OOE UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) — Yugoslavia and the U.S.-backed Philippines deadlocked again last night in new balloting for a disputed Security Council seat. But Russia's bid to seat the Belgrade Communists appeared crippled by an American maneuver which placed the Yugoslavs, on another key U.N. council. When voting resumed in the 60- n«tion General Assembly, Yugoslavia — backed by both Britain and the Soviet was favored to win. Interest in the outcome was keen, since a Philippine defeat would deal a heavy blow to the prestige of the Asian nation's all-out U. S. backing. After three ballots in which neither side got the needed two-thirds majority, it began to look like a standoff. On the ninth and final ballot of the two-day series, the Philippines had 31 votes to Yugoslavia's 27. Election Postponed The picture changed when the United States, over bitter Soviet opposition, pushed through a proposal postponing the Security Council election and switching to balloting for the U.N. Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and the Trusteeship Council. On the second ballot. Yugoslavia found herself elected to ECOSOC with 46 votes — seven more than the required margin. No date was set for voting to resume for the Security Council seat. Jubilant American circles claimed Yugoslavia's election to ECOSOC considerably weakened her chances for the Security Council.

Dixie Development Plan Charted by Governors By DON WH1TEHEAD POINT CLEAR Ala (AP) — Southern •governors •were«eatiy^today!'4o"nnrfce;ihe;.iiis' move toward a cooperative Soulhwide program designed to promote a vast new scientific and industrial development in Dixie. Southern hopes are for 30 pel- cent of the nation's manufacturing facilities in another 10 years—and a program aimed in that direction is being pushed by the Southern Governors Conference under the direction of the Southern Assn. of Science and Industry, Inc. Gov. Orval E. Paubus of Arkansas urgd his colleagues near the close of the conference to make the first unified effort toward regional cooperation by initiating: Uniform Reports 1. Uniform reports on new plant locations. 2. A study of industries which have grown rapidly in the South ince World War II. 3. A regional conference on market research. 'It is believed that .the successful attainment of these limited objectives during the coming year will serve as a starting point for a more extensive cooperative program in the years ahead," Faubus said. Dr. Frank J. Soday, president of the Southern Assn. of Science and Industry, Inc., told the governors at their windup session that the South's industrial output since 1939 has increased from 11 billions to nearly 60 billion dollars. One-Sixth of Construction "To illustrate the rapidity with which the South is" building its manufacturing potential," he said, "the Oulf Souf area, which includes Texas. Louisiana, Mississippi. Alabama and northwest Florida, has accounted for one sixth of all the industrial construction in the United States during the past 10 years." Referring to the South's anticipated 'achievement in t he next decade, he said: "It will be necessary to build approximately three plants per clay during this period, or a total of'lO.OOO plants in 10 years. Each state on an average will add 700 plants to its industrial potential by 1965." The big "pot of gold" for the South, he said, is in chemicals. Belling on Chemicals "The South is betting on chemi- cals in a big way," he said. "Some 710 millions in n ew chemlca plants were completed during 1954 and another 780 million are on the way. The South has one third o: the nation's chemical industry and it is expected that this will in crease to one half within the nex 10 years." On the political side, Alabama's Gov. James E. Folsom told ri porters last night that "segregation is no issue down South as far as I can see," and that he is doing al he can to register Negroes to vote in Alabama. "We have had Negroes for 32* years and we're going to havi them for 325 years more," he said "There's no use getting upse about something we can't do any thing about." The governor a;so plugged again for ex-President Harry Truman as the Democrats' choice for presi dent again in 1956 even though Truman has said he has no inten tion of running. To Air Political Situation? Ike, Brownell Talk Tomorrow By JACK ADAMS WASHINGTON (AP) — Ally. Gen. Brownell is flying out to Denver tomorrow and tht trip raises speculation that President Eisenhower may now want to discuss the political situa tion with his top adviser in that field. It is generally recognized that the 51-year-old attorney general is "the wizard" in political matters for this administration, and that the President frequently turns to him for advice in such matters. In announcing the other day that Brownell had been invited to the President's bedside, White House Press Secretary James C. hag- erty said that Justice Department business would be discussed. Tills might well concern two presidential nominations — from Justice Department ranks — to two judgeships, both of which were sidetracked in the last Congress. The men involved are Solicitor General Simon E. Sohelolf of Baltimore, nominated for the 4th Cir- Plymouth Has A New Model Plymouth's aerodynamic 1956 automobiles go on display at 61 Motor CO., T. I.

Burner of Minneapolis, pro-l posed for a place on the U.S. Court of Appeals here. ' Questions Settled Both nominations evoked opposition and never got out of committee before the .session ended. The question of resubmission in the January session now has to be settled. Discussion of this business of course would not preclude some further talk about politics, perhaps including the President's heart attack and its implications for 1956. The meeting of the two will be the first since Eisenhower was stricken. Brownell's reputation for skillfully masterminding difficult political situations stems from his close 25-year association with Thomas E. Dewey, two years of service as chairman of the Republication National Committee, the management of two Dewey bids for the presidency, and finall; his major role In the sueessful Eisenhower campaign of 1952. Needs lo Say Soon There are politicians in both parties who believe that If the President Is not to run for a second term, he will, have to make th'at fact known before the end of the year in order to give other Republican aspirants time to build up their forces for the August convention In Son Francisco. Or, some Republican say, the President might publicly pat some one on the shoulder, indicating This is my choice." and thu settle the San Francisco dust be fore it has arisen from an intra party fight over the nomination Brownell goes to New York to day to attend the Al Smith Dinne there tonight. He will fly direc from there to Denver. Weather More Secret Yalta Papers Released Lack of Cooperation By Russia Is Told In. New Yalta Release By FRED S. HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — Although the Russians agreed n 1943 to go to war against Japan after Germany's defeat, .hey persistently dodged American efforts to work out plans for such military operations. -This picture emerges from a> ne\vly published account of behind,he-scenes events leading up 10 Russia's entry into the Far Eastern war— only a few days before the Japanese surrendered in August 1945. The Defense Department yesterday made public the 35,000-word report. The Pentagon document said that "to coordinate United States operations in the Pacific with prospective Soviet action, the military Manners in Washington needed detailed information on Soviet capa- ailities and intentions in the Far East." Tried to Get Information Maj. Gen. John R. Deane, a member of the U.S. mission in Moscow, tried to get his informa- ;ion, but the report said his efforts nad "produced no return" by the beginning of 1944. Then, during the first months of that year, Deane submitted lists of questions to Soviet officials. "The Soviet response continued to be disappoint- g," the report said. "During the first half of 1944," it added, "it appeared impossible to arrange for any systematic Soviet-United States discussion of Far Eastern matters." Early in February 1944, the documents related. Soviet Marshal Joseph Stalin told U. S..Ambassador Averell Harriman the United States wold be allowed to opef- t^^iveraftJronvSiW'ia afterHhe Russians declared war on Japan "No opportunity was ottered . . , for consultation with Soviet Air officers about the details of such an undertaking," the report said. In April the Soviet, government requested delivery of 500 heavy bombers . . . but negotiations on this matter also failed to make progress." "Encouraging Attitude' The Pentagon study tells of a more "encouraging 1 attitude" encountered by Harriman in an interview with Stalin June 10, 1944 Then, in preparation for expectec conferences, the Joint Chiefs of Staff forwarded additional instructions to Deane. They told Deane: "To facilitate planning (.for early operation of U.S. heavy bomb e,rs and long-range fighters from Siberian and other bases) we neec detailed information on the loca tion, condition, capacity, and probable availability 01" airfields, pro visions for air defense . . . and logistical capacities to include supply, maintenance, servicing and See REDS on Pajre 3 Report Brings New MacArthur, Pentagon Dispute By ELTON C.

New Chrysler Has New Power Arthur as twice concurring directly in the opinion that Russia should get into the conflict—once when the war began and again in June, 1945. MacArthur, acknowledging that he wanted the Soviets to strike Japan right after Pearl Harbor, denied that he ever again advocated Russian entry into the war until after the Yalta conference trf February, 1945, when great concessions were made to Russia. In a statement in New York, MacArthur declared the 35,000- word Pentagon report "fully confirms" that he was never consulted about Yalta. Become Binding And he said that once the Yalta decisions were made they became binding upon him as upon other military commanders. He commented: "The attempt to interpret any statements I may have made in the course of such post-Yalta discussions as reflecting my pre- Yalta views and convictions is wholly unwarranted.'' MacArthur also said in his statement: "There is not the slightest hint ol documentation over my signature in the entire Defense Department report which even remotely suggest my support of these territorial concessions (to Russia) . . . "I repeat, had my views been requested concerning the secret agreements bearing upon Russia's entrance into the Pacific war I would have opposed them as fmi- tastic." Had No Connection Last March, when a Republican- Democratic debate over Yalta brought up questions oi Mac Arthur's views at that time, the general declared he had not had the slightest connection with the conference, and asserted: "Had my views been requested with referenc to Yalta I would most emphatically have recommended against bringing the Soviet into the Pacific war at that late date. To have made vital concessions for such a purpose would have seemed to me fantastic." Yalta was a meeting of President Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Churchill and Russian Premier SLalin at a Russian Crimean resort of that name. Stalin asked there for territorial and other concessions, largely at the expense of China. He was given them, and pledged in return to enter the war against Japan three months after the defeat of Germany. As mailers developed, the Russians came in six days before Japan's surrender. In the years since, critics of the Roosevelt administration have contended the Yalta concessions are to blame for many of the Western world's present difficulties in the Far East. Some Democrats have replied that Roosevelt acted on the basis of military advice, including that from MacArthur. li, was in the light of this argu- i ment that the Pentagon agreed to ! make public an edited record as ' the entry of Russia into the See YALTA on I'ai;e 3 •kiss of death" by pinning' J- P( . orc i player, lifeguard door latches "the business label" on U. anc [ instant heat aircraft-type heater.
