Reds Claim Price Cuts But Mix Propaganda in with Economics Romania Grabs AH Farm Land For State Use —W-i—Romanla today stripped former big landowners of the last remnants of their acreage. A decree of the supreme presidium of the Romanian government, effective at once, expropriated nil remaining land of the former landed gentry without payment. The decree was broadcast by the Bucharest radio. About 315.000 acres were taken over by the government, It was estimated. The decree said the reasons for Ihe step were the landowners' noncompliance with government regulations and sabatoge of machinery. Punishment for not complying • with the new decree was set »t three to 15 years imprisonment. The government in 1945 took over all land "on ordinary farms of the landed class in excess of 150 acres. It exempted some so-called model-o r Intensive-agriculture—r arms from this list.. The new decree exporates ml farms, regardless of size, Bnt j a u model farms belonging to the former big landowners. It does not affect holding of small peasant landowners, "Living und rtcad Inventory" that Is livestock, poultry and farm machinery of the big owners also are taken over. Only their personal belongings were exempted from the decree. The state Farm Administration presumably' will run the farms taken over under the decree this season.

By Ben Baurll , IIP) fortltn New* Kdllor "Living is becoming better Ml the time." Soviet clttwiu were tolrt that yesterday, along with the announcement of 10 to 30 per cent price reductions In many articles of tood, drink, wearing apparel and hardware. The quotation above, from the Russian trade union newspaper Trud, seems to keynote tills latest mixture of Russian economics and propaganda. The whole situation is being made a part of a campaign In Russia and satellite countries designed to convince the cHlwns' there (hat tlielr conditions nre improving while things arc bar! in the United Stales. Living certainly can gel « 8<It ,tt deal better In the Soviet Union before the living standards there approach western levels. A dispatch through the Moscow censorship notes sginificantly that: "The price reductions are a new step toward reatlalnlng the Soviet Union's prewar standard of living That Is a back-handed way of Faying that conditions in the Soviet Union, three years afler the fiKliting ended, are still below the levels attained before the war. And the conditions known to exist before the war were low by western .standards. Pur example, homing for the average Russian Is hardly comparable with standards In the Uniled Stales, even when the latter re subject to criticism. Evidence that the price cuts are part ot an economic program that crosses over into the field of propaganda can be seen In the Russian press' insistence .that conditions In the United States are chaotic. Por years, the Russians have been predicting nn American depression. Now they say that one out ot seven city dwellers Is starving and that 10.000,000 farmers live in dire need. That is the approximate total of farm employment in the United Stales, so you can judge it accordingly. Rich But Worried Executives Ideal Targets for Ulcer LOS ANGELES.

PARSON FEED MILL Serving 50-Mile Arts Around Havli Two Blocks Rust of City Square, Hayli, Mo. Owners of the i949 Cadillac arc gning to get a pleasant surprise when they take it out for that first cross- country run. Without any extra effort whatsoever they arc going to wind up thnt first day's touring about a hundred miles farther from home than they expected to be! 1'or here, beyond any doubt, is the greatest 'mile-eater" that ever rolled over a highway. We arc not talking about excessive speed—because, regardless of the power they have at dieir command, sensible people observe the laws of the road and the rules of safety. But the 1949 Cadillac is so cat-quick and cagcr-so smooth and easy and cffortlcss-that it covers an amazing amount of distance inside t'/ics.ifc and legal limits. You take the hills as fasi as the level stretches—you make the first hundred yards away from a stop light as fast as you make the second hundred—and the car's matchless agility enables yon to avoid many of the pockets in slow- moving traffic. The secret, of course, is found in the great new Cadillac V-type engine-plus the marvelous new engineering in (he Cadillac chassis. Actually, you almost seem to move by automatic propulsion. I here is no performance like it—anywhere in the world. SULLIVAN-NELSON CHEVROLET CO. 301 W.
