TUESDAT, JULY 21, 1953 BLYTHEVTLLB (ARK.)' COURIER NBWS Report from Moscow— PACE FTTH Recent Panic in Moscow Shows Communists' Concern for Public EDITOR'S VrtTP K*n» 11 va-JI-a VllA-a ^;t-.,-_- _* c..., 1 ,_ . • EDITOR'S NOTE — For 11 years Eddy Gilmore of Sclma, Ala., wa« AP correspondent In Moscow. He married a Russian dancer In 1943, at a time of wartime amity, and found out late In the 40s that the Soviet government would not allow her to leave that country with their two children. Only recently was this rule relaxed, and Gilmore was able to bring his family out. While tliey are enroule to the United States Gilmorei s writing a series of stories about Russia and his experiences there. This is the first of four articles to appear this week. By EDDY GILMORE i ^ .^ n ,a~. PARIS (AP) — For the first time in years the Kremlin seems to be showing some concern for Ivan Ivanovich, the average Russian. It's too early to say if this is because the party and the government sincerely want to do something for the I people; or because they are afraid of the people, or for! both reasons. Maybe that was it. Run on Everything The commission (stores, state pawn shops), were packed and buy- But things are happening. And If Georgi Malenkdv and the others can hold the galloping Russian Troika In the road, and resist going for one another's throats, things are going to continue to happen — I mean things that will make life far " easier for the Russian people. Malenkov is pledged to raise the standard of living. The Russian people have heard that one before, but this time the party and the government are behaving as if it matters somewhat how the people feel about things. The Panic Take the recent citywide oanic in Moscow. I do not believe this story has been reported to the outside world, for the censor was very active with his big red pencil when I left Moscow. Here it Is: Toward the last days of June the rumor got out in Moscow that the money was going to be changed again. It ran around the city like an acre of rabbits turned loose on an ocean of lettuce. We heard it everywhere we went and it gofc so serious the foreign embassies sent people out to look around. Moscow had had one devaluation since the war. Czechoslovakia had just had one. It was at the half year, a logical time. I'd seen devaluation, or reform as they called it, happen before in Moscow. The symptoms were the j same. The people knew about ft several days in advance. I did some investigating. The subways and the buses and the street cars had no metal money. During the last devaluation metal money was not changed. The people were clinging to it. Heated arguments took place on the subway. The conductors demanded metal money, or refused to give change. The people offered paper rubles, or 3 and 5-ruble pieces. They'd get a ride and some metal money back in change. But the con. ductors weren't having any. Or they'd simply run out of change. ing was brisk. All sorts of things were going. The food shops were full. There seemed to be a run on everything, and everywhere the people were saying "Have you heard about it? Do you think it's going to happen?" The last devaluation hurt Ivan Ivanovich plenty. Never a banker at heart, he kept his precious rubles] at home. "When the government de- ] valued, Ivan got 1 ruble for -0, a poor batting average in any league. looked at two banks. Long lines of depositors before the savings account windows. At the last devaluation, the folks who hud their rubles in the bank got the new money at one new ruble for one old ruble. Every indication was that deval nation lay ahead. Yet it didn't read right. It was inconsistent with everything the Malenkov government, was doing. Devaluation would be highly unpopular with the people, for the people don't like governments to monkey with their money— unless it is to give them more of it. It was a panic, all right, and finally the ministry of finance nad to come out with a communique in all papers denying all idea of devaluation. or a change in the money How to Sell Bonds That was a rare step. Under Joseph Stalin it would not have happened. The people would have been left in panic; they didn't matter. But the Malenkov government assured .them. Did it have to? Was it having to answer to a public opinion for the first time .since Stalin got his steely grip on the nation? Give Up Daughter Or Spouse? SEATTLE f/Pj—A judge's ruling left Mrs. Sylvia McCandiess Inoui today with the prospect of being separated either from her Japanese husband or from her 5-year-oK daughter by a former marriage- Mrs. Inoue yesterday asked Su perior Judge William G. Long's permission to take her daughter Heather Hill with her when her present uisband, Dr. Shinya Inoue, returns ,0 Japan from his position on the medical staff at the University of Washington. The girl's father, Richard V. Hill, 'rom whom Mrs. Inou was divorced iwo years ago, objected on the grounds he was paying his daugh- •er's support and had been visiting ler at every opportunity. Judge Long refused Mrs. Inoue's •equest, stating that until the girl caches an age where she can make icr own decisions, "the court must ireserve in trust for the child that o which she is entitled by right f birth." He added the issue was whether iie child should be separated from ler father and the culture of her tative land and taken to a foreign ountry which may be "within the attle area of hostile powers," Diabetes?

The precinct heelers come around to every apartment, They approach every adult and put him down for buying such and such amount in the government loan scheme. It is naturally always oversubscribed. This has led to a Russian story: sentence would affect Rose's health adversely. Rose, he said, has diabetes. "The last diabetic I sent to prison improved considerably while he was confined." the judge commented He sentenced Rose to two years in a federal penitentiary.
