WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY, 16, 193TJ BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINI Reds Charge US Newsmen with Ink Gangsterism Press Unleashes Heavy Barrage at American Reporters MOSCOW (ff)—The Soviet press unleashed a heavy barrage against American newspaper men today, accusing them of "Ink gangster- ism" in their interpretations of Soviet government shakcups last week in which Georgl Malenkov lost his job as premier. The newspaper Literary Gazette led the assault. The organ of the Union of soviet Writers said the American press was trying to represent the Soviet Union as headed toward a militaristic policy and war economy. It said this was an American attempt to mask "the aggressive policies" of the United State*. Ryan Scored Like Pravda before it, the Liter' ary Gazette directed particular abuw at William L. Ryan, foreign news analyst of the Associated Press, calling him a "hack, liar and distorter" for his comments on Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov's statement of Soviet foreign policy last week. Molotov's "peaceful", report and last week's Supreme Soviet events were distorted by American commentators, said the paper, to "justify the American ruling circles' boundless arms race and ther hysterical calls for atom war." AP Analyst Ryan Interpreted Por•Ign Minister Molotov's statement of foreign policy as one which indicated & turning away from compromise and conciliation and presenting & tough front to the Western world. Congress Pay Bill Posses 1st Test WASHINGTON WJ — The House Rules Committee yesterday cleared a $10,000-a-year congressional sal ary increase bill for House consideration, and predicted approval, today, The committee sent the bill to the floor for a vote under procedure barring In advance , possible efforts to enlarge It by wholesale addition of raises for other federal workers. Chairman Smith (D-Va) said there were, "differing opinions," and that no recorded vote was kept. Before the committee acted, by a split vote, misgivings were voiced by several members against Congress voting itself a raise before authorizing salary increases for lower paid federal workers. Read Courier News Classified Ad*. STARR GAZING By BETTYE NELLE STARR Courier Newi Staff Correspondent On this date in 1838, Kentucky granted school suffrage to women. It covered only widows with children of school age. And by the way, the name "Kentucky," is from a :omblnaUon of Indian words mea- ngin "Dark and bloody ground." Ocean mail service to China was authorized on February 17, 18G5. On February 18, 1837 the first labor paper" The Mjin," was published. Washington's Monument was dedicated on February 12, 1885. A salute to those Marines, who planted Old Glory on top of Mount Surabachi on Iwo Jima ten years this coming Saturday. It must have been a beautiful sight to those boys at the base of the mountain, when they looked up and saw the American flag proudly waving In that cold February wind. This entire month should be dedicated to those boys, who ten years ago, made history. Those on Bataan and Corregidor, too, who survived the ordeal are now relating war stories, first handed to their little sons and daughters who were not even dre- amedd about 10 years ago. Drinking water neither makes a man sick, nor in debt, nor his wife a widow. Beethoven and a gal's best friend, Liberace, (if you'll pardon the expression) have an awful lot in common. Their music is meant to strike fire from the heart of man and bring tears from the eyes of women. Outside of that, they have nothing in common and I'm wearing my bullet-proof vest when I say, Llbernce kinder makes me sick at my stomach. Please—no responses. Ain't I brave? I knew all time the applause on Eddie Fisher's show came out of a can but didn't want to disillusion the younger set. Now there's a singer who has the rare distinction of singing practically any type song and good, but of course, as my grandma always said, that's what makes horse trading good, we can't all see eye to eye. Repentance is not so much remorse for what we have done as the fear of consequence*. Something Wpodrow Wilson said that needs repeating: "It is just hard to do your duty when men are sneering at you as when they are shooting at you." Blessed IB the man who, having nothing to say, keeps his big fat mouth shut. They say you can always get the truth from an American statesman after he has turned 70, or given up all hope of being presi- dent. Honest bread is very well, it's (lie butter that makes the temptation. There are no crown-brearers in heaven who were not cross-bearers in the world. They say the place where optimism most flourishes is in mental institutions. It Is better to know nothing than to know what ain't so. People are usually treated according to the age they act. Some grown up folks act like two year olds and are treated thusly, some two year olds now-a-days are so darn smart they are treated like school kids and display more sense thai} some of their mamas. I hope I'm still around to see what the next generation is Like... or do I? Mrs. X left her long white kid gloves at the home of Mrs. Y, pure forgetfuliness, not having need of gloves, a la Buckingham Palace, but once in a life time, she had even forgotten where sh'e had left them and after a year, Mrs. Y thought it was safe to put them to use so she dressed herself up and donned the gloves at the next big function. Upon seeing Mrs. Y and the gloves, it came back to Mrs, X that she had left them at Mrs. Y's house, but didn't want to approach her in a tactless manner before all the guests. So when the opportunity came, Mrs. X asked If she had left a pair of long white, kid gloves, size G'/i, at her house. You should have seen Mrs. Y peeling off the gloves and handing them over to Mrs. X This actually happened, so never wear what's left at your house unless it's a pair of panties. I believe, but wouldn't guarantee it, that you might get by without being embarrassed. It would be my luck to trip over the bear rug and my dress would come up over my head. Sgt. Jimmy D.
