COURIER NEWS PAGB THREB Molotov Makes Big Claims for Soviet Power, H-Bombs MOSCOW (AP) — In a 2'/>-hour statement of Soviet Foreign policy, Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov today bitterly arraigned the United States and declared the Soviet Union has 'developed hydrogen bomhs with "such success that the United States could appear backward."

He delivered tills warning: "In case of an eventual war. world civilization will not perish but what will he destroyed Is the rotten social system with its blood- saturated Imperialism which is being rejected by oppressed peoples." But he insisted, in a speech to the Soviet Parliament, that "the Soviet Union wants a competition with the United States, not in the production of atomic weapons but in using atomic energy for peaceful aims."

Aware of Effect Malenkov and Khrushchev evl- denMy were well nware of the shocking effect their 'announcement would have. Malenkov, in his confession of failure, predicted it would lead to "slanderous" speculation in the West. That is, the West would suspect the truth. The prospect seems to be this: Khrushchev will revert to the old Stalinist policy of everything for heavy industry, of belt tightening for the Soviet people, and ,of planning against tfie eventuality of war in the not distant future — say in terms of a few years. He seems out to use overwhelming industrial power as a political weapon in the cold war— a weapon which can decide battles without a shot being fired. But he has given every evidence that he believes implicitly in the Lenin-Stalin doctrine that an eventual bloody clash between the Communist and non-Communist worlds is inevitable. in charge of the agricultural program, he had done the job badly. Diplomats were interested in the fact that Marshal Bulganin was elected to the premiership by the same session of the Supreme Soviet which unanimously approved the new 1955 budget which raised Soviet military spending by nbout 12 per cent. The same Soviet also appropriated vast -sums for the development of heavy industry. Molotov's sperch before the intent, packed nailery rang- with bitterness against the United Staffs. He accused the United States of seeking world domination. "They want to spread the capitalistic system over the whole World, and this means preparation for war." he said. Failure Claimed "North and South America are apart from the road the people of Europe and Asia are moving along, but the iron curtain with which they want to separate themselves from other people is not so firm as it seems." The Foreign Minister charged thai Western capitalist, countries under American leadership "wasn't to turn back the people's democratic countries to capitalism and they also want to restore capitalism in the Soviet Union." But he .said such attempts will f»il and that communism is making great gains in "the peoples' liberation movement against colonialism" in Asia.

It is to be expected that various bourgeois hysterical viragos will busy themselves with slanderous inventions in connection with my present statement, and the fact itself of my release from the post of chairman on the U.S.S.R.

Repeatedly lie jabbed at the British Prime Minister, accusing him of having attempted to strangle the Soviet Communist regime ever since the civil war days of 1919. "One of the chief ideologists of capitalism, Churchill, had the idea to strangle bolshevism in iLs embryo." Molotov said. ". . .But it is a little Inte to speak of this now." Malenkov, in hi.s statement of resignation, said (he Soviet Union's agricultural program under him, even in the days before Stalin's death, had. "bad results." Although he had made a full acknowledgement of hi.s error and lack of experience, Malenfcov did not appear ill at case on the stage. He chatted informally with other Soviet leaders on the platform. Continued from Page 1 already passed the House — and lower exemptions on state income taxes were suggested by Paubus. He also plugged again for exemption of livestock and poultry feed from the sales tax, and said the two new taxes would be enough to offset the anticipated loss resulting from the exemptions. Paubus said that the four million dollar state deficit has been covered in recent years by spending from the reserve fund, but that the fund now is near depletion. In addition to helping the public schools, the proposed new taxes also would go in smaller amounts to the Welfare Department and the state-supported colleges. Reaction Here s a sample of comment from the legislators on the Faubus program: Sen. Marshall Shackleford Jr., El Dorado — "I approve wholeheartedly of his proposal for equalizing tax assessments, but I have very serious doubts that raising taxes as a temporary measure would help solve the basic problem of unequal assessments at the local level." Sen. James P. Baker Jr., West Helena — "My folks are against a tax increase at the state level." Sen. Marvin Melton, Joncsboro — "On a whole, I think it was a sound program, taking into consideration the current emergency. I'll support a sales tax increase for 13 months as an emergency measure." Sen. Lawrence Blackwell, Pine Bluff — "I'm not for any tax increase which is necessary to bring in the amount of money asked by the governor." Sen .Clifton Wade, Fayetteville — "I think now I would vote for a temporary sales tax, coupled with legislation to try to equalize assessments." Rep. Robert Harvey, Jackson County — "A constructive speech. If we want increased money, we'll have to up the sales tax. It's up to the Legislature." Rep. Pa». Robinson. Lafayette County — "I disagree on giving the | Local Students On Honor List Two BJythcville students at Henri m: CoUege were among a group of 40 winning places on the dean's list for the first semester just,,completed, according to Dean W.

Nationalist sources in Taipei insisted Nationalist ships were in Ta- ehcn waters Sunday night or yesterday morning and began loading. If so, it may have been a fast shift ol guerrillas to Narichishan or some other offshore island the Nationalists hope to build up. Fourteen Nationalist ships wore assigned to the task of taking off civilians. They included 13 landings ships, 8 of tank sine and 5 mediums, and the .steamer Ti Hua. Will Take Week The evacuation was expected to take a week or longer, even with U.S. ships joining in the operation. Tides as high as 18 feet and rocky beaches cut loading time to six hours daily. A mighty U.S. fleet of warships and amphibious craft converged on t ii e Tachens yesterday. Navy beachmasters and Marines went ashore to set up the evacuation while underwater demolition teams and minesweepers cleared the approaches. This opening phase of the evacuation operation yesterday passed without serious incident. Communist, guns on Yikiangshan fired a few bursts at Navy planes, without hits. Adm. Pride, in a dispatch from his 7th Fleet, expressed the belief that "the Communists thought our aircraft were coining too close." "Our pilots are instructed to avoid provocative action and not to overfly pending any overt act by the Communists," Pride stressed. In addition to the Tacheru, two other island groups were to be cleared. They are the Yu Shans, 35 miles northeast, and Pishan, 32 miles southwest of the Tachens. In all, about 40,000 troops and civil- ians will be moved. The troops Include Chiang Kai- shek's 4fith Division, on Upper Ta- chcn, and guerrillas on all three island groups. At the northern Formosan port of Kcelung, preparations were in full swing Lo receive the refugees. Beds were set up in 26 schools, kitchens were prepared and teachers and college students volunteered to aid the migration. Trains and trucks shuttled into Keclun«. Ultimately they will disperse the refugees through five counties, with tho fishermen going to coastal villages where they can work at their livelihood. Some refugees already have passed through Kecking. They were orphans from the Tachens and widows and children of Nationalists killed in action. A few wounded and sick troops came too.
