PAGI EIGHT BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.)

Said RuiilaiH Did It The Germans, who first rep9rt- ed the massacre during World War II, said the Russians did It. The Soviet government blamed the Nazis, An American congressional committee held hearings for nine months in 1951-52 and laid the massacre at the door of the Russians. The new report from Poland says the Warsaw government has established a roup to Investigate and can be expected to make report in June, which might be made public. To Whitewash Russians If the report is true, it could mean the PoleR intend to whitewash the Russians. Such a step would stem from the fact that the denunciation of Stalin and revela tlon of some of his crimes has wakened bitter memories in Poland. Many Poles nowadays are asking questions—some of th«m no doubt about Katyn. It 'i» also conceivable—barely— that the Kremlin, having admitted so many of Stalin's purges and massacres, has decided to blame hi mior Katyn Forest also. 'Such an action would arouse strong passions in Poland and could be dan- geroui to the Communists. If th« Polish Reds are delving into the Katyn story, it seems certain It is being done with Moscow's approval.

Deliberately Provoked Soviet reaction to the .clash in dicated that the Russians felt Khrushchev had been deliberately provoked Into language which .shocked even the extreme left wins of the Labor party. From all signs, both the British and Russians throughout the past week's talks stood fast on previous policies toward such major issue? as the Middle East situation, unification of Germany and interna tioiifil disarmament. Informants said the communi- que would dwell on achievements in relatively minor I'ields—prob ably increases in nonstrateglc British-Soviet trade and cultural contacts. Reports also spread that the two powers made some progress on ruble exchange rates. The Russians now peg the ruble at four to the dollar, about 2V 2 times its value on the free market in Europe. Revived Geneva Spirit The British and Russians were expected to hail the conference as having revived a measure of the "spirit of Geneva." And Britons feel the talks have g(ven them a chance to assess the trend of Soviet policy .that has followed Moscow's downgrading' of Stalin. , There was a possibility the visit might have given a slight push toward reconciling the U.S. and Soviet disarmament plans now being discussed here by the five-nation U.N. Disarmament subcommittee. President Elsenhower's special disarmament adviser, Harold Stassen, talked for two hours with Khrushchev at the Soviet reception Tuesday night. As a result, Stassen arranged for a special meel- ing today or tomorrow on the arms question with Soviet Deputy j Foreign Minister Adnrei Gromy- j ko. The entire Soviet and U. S I delegations to the five-power talks were to participate. Informed sources said, however, the StnsKcn-Khrushchev chat did : not seem to reconcile any out- j standing arms differences. | The Russians, meanwhile,,' Says Red Attack Is Doubtful PASADENA, Cllit.

Dr. Igor Kurchatov, who came here with the Kremlin leaders, told scientists at Britain's Harwell Laboratory that Soviet scientists have produced temperatures of around one million degrees centigrade by sending electric currents through gas-filled tubes. Such temperatures are almosl high enough to touch oft fusion of heavy hydrogen atoms, the reaction that makes the H-bomb possible. All fusion blasts thus far presumably have been triggered by the atomic bomb, a method that cannot be controlled for Industrial use. Disappointment The Influential Times of- London, which often seems to have authoritative guidance for its predictions, appeared to be preparing the Brit- "sh public for a disappointment on the Russian-British talks. "It should be said," the Times commented today, "that there were never real hopes of startling esults of outstanding importance, 3ut R start has been made. The visit evidently was worthwhile." The talks ended yesterday after an unscheduled overtime afternoon session which was believed devoted to phrasing of the joint communique. Issuance of the com- munique was deferred until the return of Bulganin and Khrushchev from their flying trip to Idinburgh today. The Kremlin chiefs are sched- zled to leave for home tomorrow aboard the cruiser Ordzhonikidze, which brought them here.
