PAC TWJ5H II". BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1955 Battles of Minds Raging In Strife-Torn Argentina By BRUCE HENDERSON' BUENOS AIRES (AP) — A battle royal for men's minds is going on in Argentina. The outcome could decide whether this nation builds democracy from the ruins of shattered Peron- tem or reverts to dictatorship . . . A press campaign, is.trying to persuade the working man still fanatically dedicated to Juan Peron that he.can get along even better without the fallen president — and be free besides. It is being conducted by the provisional government set up after rebels ousted Peron last month. B's an Important propaganda job and a fough one. Without at least the passive cooperation of these peoples, achieving: stability will bo difficult. Peron has a 10-year head •tart in drilling into their minds the dea he was the only one ca- pitate of leading them to the better' Mfe. I Argentina's General Conferera- Uon of Labor (CGT) claims six! million of the country's 19 million! citizens. The CGT was Peron's big fist. i In 1946 a daylong strike and demonstration by the CGT forced a militars' clique which had arrested Peron to free him. That show of mass support hoisted Peron into the presidency the following year. Could Be Threat How many of the CGT's claimed six million are still avid follower of the exiled Peron is questionable but surely the figure is high. Un less taught something other tha "Peronismo," they could be n coi slant threat to iranquiliiy. The government of Maj. Ger Eduardo Lonardi is trying to sho\ the Peronistas the difference be tween labor unions free lo char their own course and those dom inated by a government. It is als trying to gel across the meaning of "hard money." Newspapers un der temporary direction of the pro the same page of "La Epoca' ono day last week. One, aimed at CGT-nffiliatcd un ions which will elect new officer soon under government supervi sion. said: "An effective union democrats Rich Omaha Widow Is Robbed Of $145,000 in Jewels, Cash OMAHA fjfl—"They really cleaned me out," said Mrs. Margagret Kellogg yesterday, motioning to a big bedroom safe from which two masked men had taken $125,000 in Jewels and $20,000 in cash. The robbers smashed their way Into bhe big brick home on Omaha's fashionable .West Side Tuesday night while. Mrs. Kellogg, 58-year- old banker's widow, and three woman friends watched television upstairs. The women said the gunmen were nervous and confused, but when they spied Mrs. Kellogg, who had come to the head of the stairs, one shouted, "She's the one we want," and dashed up. "Mrs. Kellogg retreated to her bedroom but the bandit slammed his shoulder through the door pan- el, jammed a pistol in Mrs. Kellogg's back and ordered her to open the big, old-fashioned safe. The,two men laid a bedspread on the floor and tossed the jewels anc money into it. The jewelry included a diamond dog collar for one oi Mrs. Kellogg's three pet chihua- haus. During the confusion, one of the women, Miss Gladys Rohrs, slipped out, alerted neighbors and callec police. A neighbor fired at the fleeing pair with a target pistol and police arrived shortly afterward but the gunmen escaped safely in a waiting car driven by a third man Hiram Stevens Maxim invented the Maxim gun and his son, Hiram Percy Maxim, invented the silencer for guns.

The second editorial, entitled "Salary and Money," carried forward the contention of Peron's opponents thai salary raises he gave the workers were quickly gobbled up by inflation. "The people work and for their work receive a salary in pesos made of paper," it said. "Pesos have value because they represent the nation's \vealth. Governments spend and spend. When their money is gone, instead of reducing the spending, they print pesos, which is easier. Paper costs little and is printed rapidly. What happens then? "If more pesos are printed but no more wealth is developed, each peso is worth less wealth. The salaries, then, are not enough. One must augment them, because prices go up." In Argentina such thoughts have not been brought publicly for a long time. NEW OLD-TIMER—John E. Peters, retired farmer of Inman.
