fAGE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18, 1956 of Cominform. Doesn't Change Reds' Aim, Pravda Says By STANLEY JOHNSON MOSCOW (AP) — Pravda made it clear today the dissolution of the Cominform — the international organization of Communist parties •— does not represent any change in Communist aims. The Soviet party organ served notice that party organizations in the various countries will find new "beneiicial forms for their mutual ties and coordinaton of ther activities." Pravda made the comment in connection with the official announcement of the dissolution, car- Commodity And Stock Markets- N«w York Cotton Mar May July Oct. . Dec .

First Word yesterday First word In Moscow of the move came yesterday from Deputy Soviet Premier A. I. Mikoyan. The official announcement said the purpose was to "overcome the division of the workers' party." Tills was a frank reference to Moscow's desire for establishment of united fronts between Europe's Socialists and Communists, as well as to the Stalin-time split between Yugoslavia and the Soviet bloc. The expansion of the Socialist system beyond the Soviet Union's borders, it added, had carriec new conditions. "The information bureau of the Communist and workers parties (Cominform), both in its composition and In the substance of its activities, does not meet these conditions,'' the announcemem said. Matter of Expediency The dissolution was ngreed on by the central committees of Europe's Communist parties after they decided the Stalin-sponsored bureau set up in 1947 had "exhausted its functions." Pravda's editorial clearly indicated the move was a matter of expediency. It said it was vital for Communists to take into consideration the new dictum by Soviet party chief Niklta S .Khrushchev that It has now become possible for Commu nists to take power by parliamentary mentis, without violence. "New possibilities have opened for utilizing p'li'HamenLs for transforming capita]Jst society Into n socialist or.?. In Individual countries," the editorial declared.

Last night, Nixon may have indicated, at least Indirectly, that he had made a decision to seek re-election. Introduced by GOP Chairman Leonard W.

A salute boomed out from shore batteries as the Russian warship came to anchor just a cable's length away from Lord Nelson's wooden-hulled battleship Victory, symbol of Britain's longtime supremacy of the seas. Prime Minister Eden and Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd arranged to meet the Soviet chiefs personally upon their arrival London this afternoon (about 9:15 a.m. EST) by train. Security Screen Scotland Yard, determined to avoid anything in the nature of an International Incident, threw up ft security screen unparrallcled In British history. Comdr. Leonard Burt of the Yard's special branch led a team of detectives to Portsmouth to escort the visitors to London. Security officials swarmed about the London hotel where they will stay A half-dozen of Scotland Yard's best marksmen were armed with pistols. Normally British police don't carry arms. Also on duty were 12 Russian guards. Eden's hopes for some plain fa,e-to-face speaking on the subject of world peace during the visit were buoyed mildly by Rus- Kin'.s declm-ntion that It would support U. N, efforts to cool off the troubled Middle East. GRACE his "rich business friends to crucify the farmers of the U.S." Eisenhower said every mcssage he had from a business man urged him to .sign the bill. Eisenhower .stressed the civil rights theme with an assertion tho Republican party ".sets up no walls of birth or creed." He said it was one of the fundamental principles of the GOP that "every Amerlcnn is equal before the law and the conscinnr.c of government."

Actually the couple are married now according to French and Monacan law, but for the Catholic Church they will not be wed "In the eyes c* God" until the church rites. Later tomorrow the couple will sail on the Prince's yacht for a Mediterranean honeymoon cruise The civil ceremony was conducted In French by Marcel Por- tainer, Monacan minister justice, in the glare of lights for the grinding cameras. No Special Reason There was no special reason why both civil and religious ceremonies could not have been held the same day, as they often are, but this marriage is a great event for Monaco and Monacans are living it up. I3y a 1918 treaty, Monaco would scome French and Monacans subject to French taxes and the French draft if Rainier died without issue. 'They are half way," said John B. Kelly, father of the bride, iii'tcr today's ceremony. 'The events of the last three months have been much of a .surprise in our lives," said Mrs. Kelly, mother of the bride. The new Princess looked delighted and happy, but certainly a little dazed. She took a glass of champagne with three American reporters who were invited to a private apartment afterward. They wished her happiness. She smiled and replied and Prince Rainier came up and was also ,ORStcd, After a round of champagne in ,he little apartment on the ground loor of the palace overlooking the j Mediterranean, the bridal couple came out on the balcony to bo cheered by about 2,000 tourists and Monacans gathered In the Both the Prince and Grace vavt!d and smiled repeatedly to j Just, iis they stepped out, on tho, 'iilcony, the sun came out for the I irst time today.

On the right side 1 was a tiny cluster of flowers and green loaves. I Rainier and all the other men at the ceremony, exrept member?; of the clergy were in formal morning cutaway and striped trousers. Grace was the first to reply "Oui" In a low voice when asked if .she took the Prince lo be her husband, Then Portanier turned to Rainier with the question. the Prince replying with an even lower "Oui." Portanier then picked up .the hupro book of marriagr registration. He took it first, to the Prince, who signed with n Found in prn PRIMARY (Continued from Pane 1) service for the people of New Jersey. He showed great politico courag by coming into the state The people gave him a good vote It is by no means a defeat fo him. Hiyhly organized Democratli rncahines in 21 counties were toi much for him to overcome." Neither Eisenhower nor Kefau ver got as many preferential vote in this election as '.hey had in 1952, but the President's percen laso was better. Four years ago after a hot fight with the late Sen Robert A. Taft, he polled 390,59 votes — nearly, half the total cas then by both p'artles. Kefauver got 154,964, in 195: when he was also unopposed. He did not contest then for conven tion delegates and at the conven tion got only three of New Jersey'; votes on the first ballot. Clcar-Cut Defeat In a battle for convention dele gales this time, the senator me a clear-cut defeat. Before the elec tion; he had predicted he would win at last 10 delegates. Democratic State Chairman George Brunner said early todas that "results were as we antic! pated. We were interested In elect ing a full slat of unpledged del gates because w fit th party must be interested in selecting the strongest possible Democratic candidate. We feel as a party thai tho Democrats will elect the nexl President." Kefauver's preferential total ran ahead of the statewide votes of his strongest delegate-candidates but he did not keep up with organization candidates. Since his was the only name on the "popularity" section of the ballot, many Democrats evidently did not cas't a vote there. Some Stevenson backers had asked support of the organization slat and a boycott of the presidential balloting. The extent of ihis "cutting" of Kefauver seemed especially apparent in Mercer and Middlesex Countls. Both are Democratic strongholds where a Democrat could be expected to run ahead of any Republican, but in this primary Eisenhower outscored Ke- faucer in both counties. There was little likelihood that the vote reflected any reaction to the President's veto of the farm bill. New Jersey's farm population is not large. Cominform's Death Expected TOKYO Ml — A Foreign Office spokesman said today the "Com- inform's dissolution has long been expected by us." The spokesman told reporters the Japanese Foreign Office had expected the move since Soviet Premier Biil^anin and party boss Khrushchev visited Yugoslavia last year "because it was the Comin- form that accused Tito." and a flourish. Then the book went fo Grace, who fixed a dainty, feminine signature. Announcing... OUR NEW WAREHOUSE AND OFFICE Located on North Highway 61 ACROSS HIGHWAY FROM THE BLYTHEVILLE WAREHOUSE CORP.
