WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 1956 BLYTHEVrLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THRBI Russian Doctor Tells Of 'Misery and Terror' During 6 Months in US By ROT ESSOYAN MOSCOW (AP) — Dr. Pavel A. Tebenkov has returned to the Soviet Union after what he describes as six years of misery and six months of terror in the United States, By his account, printed in Pravda, it was this way: Assigned to a Soviet rifle division, he was captured by the Gev- Uians in January 1945. After the war he spent four years in displaced persons camps in West Germany. "The Citrus Associated Company was shipping cheap labor from Western Europe to its orange groves in California," he wrote. "Cheap hands from the DP camps filled the purpose of breaking the resistance of Mexicans and Negroes who had no desire to work for the miserly pay the plantations paid." 15 Cents a Crate Tebenkov. a graduate of Tomsk Medical Institute, said he earned 15 cents a crate packing oranges, and that only two or three days a week. So he moved to Chicago, where he said he worked for Mandel Bros, store and at St. Anne's Hospital. "Time went like this," he wrote. "Work a day and then look for a week to find work for another day. Such a fate is difficult." He said he decided to con:* back to Russia last fall and wrote to the Soviet Embassy in Washington. From then on, he continued, his footsteps were marked by fear and dread. He said mysterious plainclothesmen stopped him at railway stations and airports to inspect his documents. In a Washington hotel room he said he was visited by an American who warned him he would be driven to Siberia, then tried to bribe him by offering him big money for three minutes on the Voice of America. (In Washington, State Department officials said there was absolutely no truth to Tebenkov's statement that a Voice of America agent offered him money for a broadcast or tried to persuade him not to go back to the Soviet Union. (These officials said they made a check on that angle as soon as they saw Tebenkov's statement in Pravda, the Soviet Communist party paper, last April 9. (Officials said they had no details readily available on Teben- kov's stay in the United States.) Methodists 7 General Conference Opens In Minneapolis; Faces Touchy Problems By GEORGE \V. CORNELL MINNEAPOLIS tfl — The Methodist Church today swings into its biggest round of church business- some of it alive with controversy. But there were few signs of the touchy problems in store as bishops, preachers and laymen assembled for opening sessions in an atmosphere of comradeship. Ahead of the two-week Genera- Conference, the supreme governing body of the country's largest Protestant church, was a record- breaking volume of pending church business piled up. since the last session four years ago. About 4,000 legislative proposals—many of them routine but others highly ticklish—have been filed with the conference for action. Conference Secretary Dr. Lud H. Estes, Memphis, Tenn., says Us the biggest workload ever. The proposals, like bills put in the hopper of Congress, will go through a maze of committee studies and consolidations before getting to the floor. They're called "memorials," and may come from any of the church's far-flung agencies, regional units or plain churchgoers. One of the thorniest items on the agenda deals with meth- odism's unusual administrative .structure, which places its Negro congregations in a special, separate subdivision of the church. Bishop Richard Raines, Indianapolis, told a dinner for newsmen last night that" there's bound to be sharp debate over proposals* for wiping out, modifying or con- tinning the segregated arrangement. . It has been a simmering issue in the church ever since the separate Negro division was created as part of the 1939 pact that ended .the century of cleavage between Northern and Southern Methodists. In general, a kind of double segregation exists in the church—' first in the customary makeup of the congregations, and second in the . separate governing jurisdiction for negro churches. Before the current meeting, the church took a nationwide opinion poll on the subject and found that 56.4 per cent favored the removal of all racial barriers of any sort. Another large share of those questioned—23.8 par cent—took an inbetween stand: they said some churches should be separate and some inclusive 1 , according to the circumstances. Only 16.6 per cent wanted all churches either exclusively for or whites. i Pet Bunnies Illegal, Game Official Says LOUISVILLE, Ky.
