TUESDAY, JUNK 23, 105?. BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE ijked Unification. Talk Designed To Split One-Army Europe Plan By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — Rioting East Germans have dealt their Russian Communist masters major damage if only in the field of propaganda. At the same time they have complicated matters for the Western Allies. ! Shifting; tactics after Stalin's death, the Russians talked of peace jand indicated they might relax 1; their iron-handed grip here and ; there. They even appeared to be mov- tof? in that direction by shifting their occupation control in East i/}ermany from military to civilian !T?.nd<,. But the discontent of the .East Germans had long been [•plain. ';/ The steady flow of refugees into ^•Wcst Germany was proof of that ;'And, with less publicity, the Rus- j'sians held the screws tight on the | East Germans. ft Last week's rebels demanded [.lower work quotas, lower consum- i-; er goods prices, freedom for polit- ; ical prisoners, free elections, ,anc f reunification of East and West J= Germany. Since Russian suppression of the [•.revolt with troops, tanks and Hr- 1 ing: squads was testimony only to /their power and not to their per:. suasiveness, the cause of the revolt i remains: fierce hatred in East ; Germany of the Russians. And it was the, greatest demon; stration against Russian control of ; the satellites since the war. It was ; encouragement to other sate.y.te ti ; peoples to do the same, if they = dared. This break for the Allies, making hash of Russian claims for the Bonders of communism, neverthe- ;_ L less created a serious problem for '" the Western Allies on the question , of reunifying Germany. ; This was a haunting question ever since the war, when Russia held East Germany and the United States, France and Britain occupied three zones which make up West Germany. Eventually the Western Allies get up the West German Republic; the Russians created a puppet East German government. On both sides of the line, millions of Germans longed for a single, reunited Germany. But a new, free, independent and united Germany—linked in with the West—would be the greatest economic and military barrier to any Russian moves against Western Europe. It is no wonder the Reds have stalled on agreements to let the Germans, East and West, have free elections to set up their own, smgle government. The public display of how the East Germans feel about them wril probably make them now even more reluctant to pemiit reunification. > The West Germans, or many of rhem, felt a need for some military defense against Russian am- Blonde, 5-4 And She Can Hit, Too HOLLYWOOD OP)—Sheriff's deputies report a blonde movie-theater en shier—5 feet 4 Inches, 1-15 pounds —floored a 5 foot 7, 145-pound gunman last night.

When the groundwork was laid for setting up a single Western European army—uniting under one command troops from various West ern countries, including Germany- Western Germany's Chancellor Adenauer agreed. But France backed away from even [hat kind of setup. And the single European army idea has been losing ground. Now as a result of the riots Germans, East and West, renew their demands for unification. This makes taugner going for the U. S., which supported and urged the single European army plan when it became plain reunification was a long way off. To quiet the East Germans, whose uprising displayed their attitude toward Moscow, the Russians may talk more about permitting unification. It is difficult to see their agreeing to it. But by talking unification, holding out bait to the Germans, the Russians can try to mess up any U. S. efforts to push for the single European army at this time. So while American problems get complicated in Korea they get complicated in Western Europe too. Royalty Marries In New York TUXEDO PARK, N. Y.

Lucy and Desi May Take Show Around World By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (API- Lucy and Ricky go around the world. That's among the future plans for the nation's most popular TV s h o w, "1 Love Lucy." It used to be considered treasonous to talk about TV shows on sets of the major film studios, but that is a thing of the past. MGM, the last bastion in the cold war against ihe new medium, has rolled out the green (red isn't popular here) . carpet for two of its former employes, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. The redhead and the Cuban are making "The Long, Long Trailer" and are being treated like Elizabeth II and her duke. Fortunately for MGM, the Amazes are not the kind to take advantage of the hospitality. 'Nice' Summer Day in Store By The Associated Press Hot weather continued over most of the South today but a generally fair and pleasant .summer day was the outlook for the rest of the nation. Cooler air and increased cloudiness sent temperatures back to near seasonal levels in sun-baked sections in the East and Midwest after a week end of sweltering weather. There were a few wet spots early today, but no heavy rainfalls. Most of the country had fair or partly cloudy weather.

MAIN STRKET, BLYTHKVIU.E Nothing New When I saw the two top TV talents, I asked what new things were in store for "I Love Lucy." "What's the matter—don't you like the show the way it is?" asked Lucille, and I think she was kidding. "Nothing new for next season," replied Desi. "We've got 12 of the scripts ready now, and we'll have lots of funny stuff with the kid learning to walk and other things. We have a wealth of material we haven't even touched yet. "But I have a plan for the season after next which I hope I can materialize. I'd like to take Lucy round the world. The reason would be logical enough: Ricky's band could be booked for a world tour. Fred and Ethel Mertz would go along too. Think of the situations \ve could get into in all those countries! We could spend several weeks at my home in Cuba and so forth.
