FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 1958 BLYTHEyr.I.E (ARK.) COURIER NEW8 PAGE SEVEN In Tito Land; a Word-Picture Story— Belgrade Shows Samples of Its New Freedom- By FKED SPARKS NEA Staff Correspondent BELGRADE — (NEA) — Peasants in fur hats and sandols turned up at the end like gondolas carry squealing pigs down the main shop. ping section. They pass diplomat.?' ladies frocked in the latest from Paris. That's two items why this capital — private property of Marshal ("Don't Call Me Dictator") Tito — is confusing enough to make tha zaniest Hollywood director screech: the set." It's my first visit here since Tito i convinced Washington he no longer belonged to Stalin's Balkan Bush League. He hns now changed the salute of the clenched Communist fist into an Itching palm—extended for the American dollars and guns. Whether you like Tito or no, he did thumb his nose at the Kremlin. Maybe Malenkov fitill hopes to hang Tito's blood scalp out to dry. At least one of Tito's Government pals thinks so. He told me:. "Sure. We're very nervous about spies. You Americans have an ocean between • you and the Russians— we're next door." There are scads of gray-uniformed soldiers around with red stars on their fatigue caps ,a hangover from yesteryear. The troops are too poorly paid to buy a girl a shlivovitz, the loca' joy juice rugged enough to gag a crocodile. I'm glad they're on our side, for they're hugs, strapping types with shaved heads, jack boots, and "Cut! Too many characters on a bloody guerrilla fighting history. Perhaps as partial payoff for the free gifts from Detroit, Tito has made certain reforms. A lad I knew back when Stalin's portrait shared wallspace with Tito'i said: "At the University we no longer have to labor on public buildings and Marxism, as a com' pulsory course, has been dropped." There is promise of further freedom in official Titoland's new sense of humor. A cartoon in "Porcupine" tickles with: Patient, speaking through his nose: "Can you remove a tooth while my mouth is shut?" Dentist: "Impossible. Why?" patient: "I opened it two years ago and just got out of jail." Recalling Russian peasants, who out the throats of their own catt!*, rather than let the Government have them, stubborn Yugoslav- farmers defeated Tito's agricultural program, which tried to direct their FACES OF YUGOSLAVIA, 1953 — Red stars, hangovers from yesteryear, still emblazon the caps of Tito's sailors (left) and soldiers (center), who mingle on Belgrade's main street with out-of-town peasants, like the old gentleman (right) with fur hat of unprocessed lamb. every plow. He's been guy enough to ^^ . I * * " ~MMMEflHa™JMJa^EW»"*»x »**™— >-. f BELGRADE'S CONTRASTS — The old rubs elbows with the new In Belgrade, where a modern building forms a background for horses hauling an ancient wagon loaded with wood into town. admit this. Pretty primitive folk, who couldn't recognize electric razors, let alone blankets, they horse-and-wagon in Belgrade at dawn with the day's unrationed eats. Outdoor market traditions allow samples, and farm women wearing six or eight embroidered petticoats set up thimbles of free wine and slivers of cheese for prospective clients. Another hint that handcuffs are slipping: is brighter clothes. While ago an average comrade would as soon have a hangman's noose around his neck as a tie. Xow most favor classy craviits. And a hapy woman told a reporter: "A year back a hat was 'Fascist' and no woman would dare to wear lipstick, nail polish, or jewelry. I had a hat—but kept it in the closet. Now I have three hats and I wear them." Why not? If Tito can take tea with the Queen of England. Desa Yvonoviteh can sport a capitalist bonnet. MARX ISN'T A MUST — Two Yugoslavia co-eds frame the new "Economic University" where they're training for government work, Kremlin Marxism is no longer a compulsory course. 37 New Books Added to Shelves Of Blytheville Public Library Thirty-seven new bonks have been added to the shelves of Blythevllle'ft Public Llbrnry, according to Mrs. Ira Gray, librarian.

Weather Stations Trap Radioactive Dust from Nevada NEW YORK (/Pi — Weather Bureau stations across the country daily set up "flypaper" apparttui to trap nnd measure electronletlly radioactive dust from the Nevada atomic blasts.
