PAGE TWO Bl,TTHEVTLT,E (ARK.V COURIER , WAT 8, Tto't C«t History— Iff* f VHi» ninmj — Yugoslavia Becomes Land of 'Never Mind' , a iinu-i>H t,o ihoot a mnvla unle By FKED Sl'ARKS .NBA Staff Correspondent JBLORADE — (NBA) — In this Communist town people say. "There to no deposit on the boUle." Nobody cares If you return It or sling it at a yowling en I, The •Ute owns the store — mid everything else. It's the land of "never mind." Walk on the furniture in your hotel with spiked bouts nmt ite manager will shrug and say: "Never mind." Insult a customer and your boss will yawn: "Never mind." Here is the payoff for eliminating private properly and destroying the dignity of labor by giving it an Impersonal serial number and tying It to a political machine, 'in "the biggest reversal since I set 12.000 dinars for pushing this ' truck" and an easy 30-40 hour '.\eek. Why swea i?" Dempsev got off the deck to lie Firpo, Tito's tyranny has issued i ssries of vague proclamations turn ln« Yugoslavia right toward a freer economy. Ii's still too early to tell whethe these are more than campaigi promises. But there's no donbi. tha the walls of woe are accumle Yugoslavia has been plain running down. i Take Ihii confession by Edward Kardelj. one ot Tito's five top Jim iordictators: "It does happen that often the director or administrative committee responsible permit an incorrect use. and even pillage, of general publicly owned property." Also Kardelj, speaking this time about labor: "Under such (the new) conditions our workers will learn to think as producers, as masters in this country and not as hired workers (hired today by the State.") The government also admits that the present payroll, which rales highly skilled workers little oetter than ditch diggers. Is mad. For example, I know a pholoen- graver, trained In England, who drives a truck. "If I work at my trade, which is short of help," he said, "I might be on the jobs six dp.ys a week, nine hours a day. I'd make maybe 13,000 dinars (slightly over MO) a month. The treat Bolshevik brains In Belgrade (who never managed anything but revolutions) are junking their system of "production planning" which told a phut exactly how much to produce in a year. One year —on such a guess-work assignment —the country was flooded with bedroom slippers, but desperately short of working shoes. Now. sounding like Harvard Business School, Tito's financlnl whizzes say: "We'll have to let. the public, by their purchases, decide how much we make." Now. swears the government, monopolies will be divided tind several outfits, operated by "workers' councils," will make identical items and compete in quality and price. Advertising, louft as dead as freedom in Yugoslavia, will come back nnd soon gorgeous Rals will flash white Ivories as they urge you to buy "KARL MARX SWEET KISSABLE BREATH TOOTHPASTE." Slowly, bureaucracy Is becoming fhe siime word in Belgrade as in Washington. Every industry groans under acres of useless party pay- rollees shuffling useless papers These executives won their posts by getting "A's' in Communist cnowledge, not on the assembly line. 'NEVKB MINI)'—Never Mind attitude, doesn't extend to church goers, like this peasant woman with Bible, who give thanks to God for stopping socialistic planners. Tito (if he-s smcerci will have plenty of old pals to purge. I know a machine tool shop when the director (elected by the CP) used to be n minor tile clerk. The former chief is no wunemployed nnd each month he sells another piece of furniture or uri, treasure for food. * • • When Tito captured Yugoslavia he scratched, as "reactionary." all business talent as well as ownership. How to brine fellows with "know how" back to life? Suppose Sam Ooldwyn were not allowed to ihoot a movie unless a politician from the ruling party OK'd the script, picked the starlets, checked the cameras? You'd gel the boring type flickers now made In Belgrade. That's what happens when party know-nothings meddle. But the story of Yugoslavia's reform Is not only today's "Confession Hour" but what will happen tomorrow. And how will Russian satellites, in an Identical economic mess, react to the weird acrobatics here In which Communists prove communism can't] work? Tomorrow: The farmer wins a victory. FARMERS TRADE — In Yugoslav town square etched atmosphere of land of "never mind" Into thia farmers buy and sell wine under new rules of free scene, economy. But year* of Communist operation have Too secret to photograph Too hig to believe! America's newest atomic project is being rushed to completion in Pike County, Ohio. Details are secret, of course. But fin's much fa known; the A-bomb project will be (lie biggest single electric power customer in hisloiy. Two of the largest electric power plants in the world will supply the needed power. Together they will generate more electricity linn New York City uses . . . nearly as much as all Ihs people and industries in Ohio now use. To speed America's defense, they are being built fast. From the construction workers to the equipment manufacturers, everyone a geared to record-breaking performance. These are impressive facts, but so is this fact... The two big coal-burning clrclric plants were conceived, designed and ore being built by a group of neighboring electric light ami power companies. Fifteen ofjhcm have jojned together lo form the $-100 million Ohio Valley Klertric Corporation to finance nnd operatq this huge power project, This means quick action for the Atomic Kucvgy Commission. For the companies will supply urgently needed power for construction from their own systems - even before the new electric plants are completed. It also means Ihat a large reserve or electric power will always be available should the atomic project ever need ill Here's further proof that tlie very biggest clccnic power jobs can be handled quickly nnd efficiently by America's Electric Light and Power Companies. For if one c alone can't do it, several together CM* and will 1 "MEET CORLISS ARCHKR"—ABC—Fridays, 8;30 p.m., Central Tlm« Ark-Mo Power Co.
