BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OP NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOL. L—NO. 184 BlytheviUe Courier Blytheville Daily News Mississippi Valley Leader BlythevlUe Herald BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER, 27. 1954 TWELVE PAGES Published Dally Except Sunday SINGLE COPY FIVE CENTS US Protests Indignities' in Moscow Reds Charged With Detaining Embassy Wives WASHINGTON (AP) — Russian secret police illegally detained two U. S. embassy wives in Moscow and subjected them to "personal indignities," the State Department charged last night. The two women went for a morn- Ing stroll Monday, carrying a camera, and landed in the middle of a first-class diplomatic set-to between the United States and Russia, with these results: 1. U. S. Ambassador Charles E. Bohlen presented—and the Soviet Foreign Ministry rejected— a strong protest that the women had been held for some 90 minutes "in violation of generally accepted diplomatic practice that prohibits the detention of persons having recognized diplomatic status." First Secretary Prank Siscoe was sent to the Foreign Office with that oral protest. Soviet Replies 2. The Foreign Office countered with a verbal statement, later put in writing, accusing one of the women—Mrs. Karl E. Sommer- platte—of "hooliganism." a Soviet term for rowdy behavior. Her removal from Russia was demanded. 3. Bohlen returned the Russian note saying: "This version is in such flagrant contradiction of the facts that I am sure thnt after further Investigation the Foreign Ministry will wish to change it." 4. The Soviets again sent their note to the American Embassy, early today, and at the same time formally returned Bohlen's original protest. There were reports in Washington that Bohlen would seek a personal meeting with , Russian Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov to demand full respect for the diplomatic rights of embassy personnel and to seek reversal of the action against Mrs. Sommerplatte. The embassy takes a grave view of the affair, taking the view it strikes at the basic issue of the personal safety of American diplomatic personnel in Russia. No Precedent Diplomats here could recall no precedent for a government dec- larating a diplomat's wife "persona non grata." or personally unacceptable. Mrs. Sommerplatte, 32, is the wife of the embassy's second secretary. The other women involved was identified as the wife of Marine Lt. Col. Houston Stiff, assistant naval attache. Officials in Washington said the hooliganism charge against Mrs. Sommerplatte apparently stemmed from a scuffle that developed when See U.S. on Pasc 12 Know Your Bollot Amendment44Could Mean Six-Year Stint For Next Governor This Is the second in a series on measures which will be voted on at the general election. By LEON' HATCH LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Adoption of proposed constitutional amendment No. 44 at the general election next Tuesday could give Orval Faiibus or Pratt Remmel — depending, of course, on who's elected — a running start toward being a six-year governor. Proposed amendment No. 44 is the one Which says that beginning with the 1956 general election Arkansas governors will be chosen for four year terms. The six-year speculation is based on the assumption that this year's successful candidate Will run again in 1956. If he should be re-elected it would be for a four-year term. But assuming that the proposed amendment is approved Tuesday, whoever's elected in 1956 can't serve for more than four years be- jinning with January, 1957. The proposal specifies that a governor may not succeed himself. Could Come Back However, there's nothing in the measure to prohibit a governor from serving one four-year term and then, after a four-year lapse, becoming governor again. It's been done in other states having provisions similar to the one proposed for Arkansas. The proposal also would prohibit An exception is made In the governor's own behalf — that is he may campaign for himself. Since he can't seek re-election as governor, it would seem that our Hypothetical governor must be a candidate for some other constitutional office. Conviction of violating this section would be punishable by a fine of from 55,000 to $20,000 and by removal from office. No Aid For Party Apparently this provision, If strictly construed, would prohibit a governor from aiding a candidate of his own party. For example, a Democratic governor couldn't make a speech in behalf of a Democratic candidate for attorney general who had Republican opposition.

"They call it the great crusade." Stcvensou said In addressing a Democratic rally in Brooklyn last night. "But if Thomas Jefferson es- , cape's without being charged with ; uurglary or treachery it will be a wonder." S'ixirn, Dnwey Blamed Stevenson said Vice President Nixon and New York Gov. Thomas E. Dewey are primarily responsible for the type of campaign being conducted by the Republicans, and he added: "I think 1 sueak for all Democrats when I say of this method: We don't like it. we don't want it ami we don't need it. • "So I say that ahusiveness and the corruption of our political coin- am- is a) reason why the Republicans will be defeated this fall.

Stevenson spoke in behalf of the New York stale Democratic candidates — headed by former Mutual Security Administrator Avercll Harriman, Democratic Liberal par- tj candidate for governor against U.S. Sen. Irving M. Ivcs, Republican. Predicting return of control ol both houses of Congress to the Democrats, Stevenson said of the 2(. months of the Eisenhower administralion: "I ... blnme them for the unhappy fact that our prestige and esteem nnd the international respect for the United States has fallen to an .all-time low.

Dr. George P. Bran.scum, Little Rock dentist and chairman of 'he committee, mode the offer here yesterday. He said the $1,000 offer would stand until Saturday. The statement issued by Branscum called the $1,000 offer "a reward" to be paid if Faubus would: 1. Make public all the applications he filed with the U. S. Postoffice Department. 2. Make public the Loyalty Oath he executed as a major in the U. S. Army Reserve this year before announcing for governor. Brarwcum, practicing Little Rock dentist since 1841, said It would be remembered that Faubus asserted publicly, "on mrire than one occasion, in press interviews, in advertisements and on radio and television that the FBI hns cleared him after an InvcstiKallon of his connection with Commonwealth College." Defunct Commonwealth College, operated at Mena. Ark. during the 1930s and was declared "communistic" after investlRatioas by state and federal organizations. During the runoff campaign In which Faubus opposed Oov. Francis Cherry, Faubus was accused ol having taken active part In the school's student activities. Faubus denied that hi: ever had enrolled at the colk'KC. He .said he had vtaltcd on the campus several days alter receiving a scholarship offer, but did not remain as a student. Faubus said that his background had been thoroughly Investigated when he served as a major in the U. S. Army during World ar II and again when he was postmaster at Huntsvllle. Dr. Branscum charged, however, that in a telegram from Washington last week, the Department of Justice publicly stated that neither the FBI nor any other division of the Department of Justice, had investigated his Faubus') Commonwealth College conneetlon and that It never had cleared him. "We deduce from that information," Dr. Branscum snid, 'that Mr. Faubus withheld from the Army, from Iho Postofflce Department nnd from the «vll Service Commission vital data about his record and activities." BrnnKcvim, who said he became Interested In activities of the Citi- zens for Clean Elections Committee because of a desire to maintain free country for three growing .sons, noted that Faubus hdd one week in which to "claim his reward." "It gives Mr. Faubus an opportunity, if he has the courage lo do so, to receive the $1,000 reward and reimburse the Democratic Committee for a part of the money It Is spending on his campaign," Dr. Branscum said. "Besides, the people of Arkansas are entitled to the truth from Mr. Faubus before the election." Faubus, speaking from Fort Smith In a telephone Interview with the Associated Press said'.
