MONDAY, APRIL II, 1M0 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Purge of Nagy Finally Comes Hungary's Premier Firtd/ Stripped of Afl Party Posts BUDAPEST, Hungary (JJ — Hungary's Communist p»rty mide public today its long-expected purge of Premier Imre Nagy. Former Deputy Premier Andras Keg- edus was elected to succeed him as head of the government. The Hungarian Parliament elected Hegedus in a session today shortly after a party announcement said Nagy had been fired and stripped of all party posts for causing "grave damage to the party, to the people's democracy and to our social building." The brief announcement also said Mihaly Far leas had been ousted from the party's five-man secretariat for supporting Nagy's Ideas and expelled from the party's political committee and central leadership (the central committee). Ouster Anticipated Nagy's formal ouster had been anticipated ever since the party's central committee rebuked him five weeks ago for "right wing deviationism." The 58-year-old leader had espoused the new look emphasis on consumer goods which the Communls', countries quickly discarded when Georgi Malenkov was demoted from Russia's .premiership. The party sharply criticized Farkas for reflecting Nagy's views but its verdict was milder in his case. The announcement said fie would be "commissioned with other party work." At its March meeting, the central committee charged Nagy with being the "chief preacher of anti- Marxist Ideas" which It blamed for a sharp drop in production. The party also accused him of supporting "opportunists and right- wing deviationists." Hard Policy Era In booting out Nagy — who had urged a better life for the masses— the Hungarian hlearchy continued its return to the hard policy of the Stalin era. The action also was another step in the public return to top power of M a t y a s Rakosl, tough first secretary of the Hungarian Communist party and the real boss in Hungary. It paralleled the emergence of open domination by Nlklta Khrushchev, Russia's Communist party chief. Nagy, a Russian-trained, old- time Communist revolutionay. replaced Rakost as premier in July, 1953, four months after Stalin's death. Rakosi stayed on as the No. 1 man In the party polltburo. It was Rakosi who, shortly before Malenkov lost his top job in Moscow, announced after a visit to the Soviet capital that Hungary would return to its Stalin-era emphasis on production of heavy industry. The ouster of Farkas came as a surprise to many Western observers who had considered him a likely successor to the premiership. Nagy's association with the Communists dated back to 1817, when he fought in Russia at the outbreak of the revolution. Repatriate Tel Is Of Red Revolt MAIZURU, Japan (ff)— More than 160,000 slave laborers revolted against their Russian guards in Siberian forced labor camps last May, a Japanese repatriate said today. The Russians restored order "only after machine gunning many of the protesting laborers," the newspaper Tokyo Shimbun quoted Mlnoru Okada. 43. Okada was one of 86 Japanese who returned today aboard the repatriation ship Koan Maru from Soviet ports. $4.6 Billion Spent In Foreign Aid WASHINGTON M 1 )—U.

A theoretical physicist, the tools of his trade were a fountain pen and a pad of paper. Though few people understood Einstein's complex theories, his work is one of the important bases of today's electronic and television Industries, and the great Industrial developments which rely partly on the laws of atomic mass and energy. He received the Nobel Prize in physics in . 1921, and the world heaped honors and adulation upon the modest scientist, who pleaded: "Let every man be respected as an Individual and no man idolized. It is an irony of fate that I mj'self have been the recipient of excessive admiratior and respect from my fellows through no fault of my own." Lifetime Member . A professor, emeritus of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, Einstein spent the last years of his life in the university community. He came to Princeton as a lifetime member of the institute in 1933, a voluntary exile from his native Germany, where the Nazis listed him as "an enemy of the state." During recent years, Einstein took stands on Issues far removed from the realm of theoretical physics. He headed a group of nationally prominent scientists who comprised the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists. The organization was formed "to advance the use of atomic energy in ways beneficial to mankind." Navy Divers Seek Bodies MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark.

N. franklin —Blyth«ville, Ark.— Phone 3-8951 BANDUNG (Continued from Page 1) had been aroused in some quarters that "our aim is to create another source of tension by constituting an anti-Western and even anti- white bloc." The .participants in the conference, he continued, must ask themselves: "where do the peoples of Asia and Arica stand — and for what?" "I answer this question by stating we stand for peace and for peace only . . . We do not want domination either 'jy force or by ideology, no matter from Whatever quarter it may come," he declared. Sastroamidjojo said he had received a letter a month ago from 14 outstanding Amencnn leaders in the fields of science, religion and literature expressing: hope that the conference would have success and adding, "we shall be watch ing you because any solution you discover should help us all."

In a preconference meeting yesterday, 24 of the 29 nations agreed on a seven-point agenda drawn in only general 'erms.

The ngenda items were cultural cooperation, economic cooperation, problems of dependent people, human rights and self determination, use of nuclear energy, weapons of mass destruction and promotion of world peace and cooperation. Some delegates said Red China stilt was determined that the conference tnke concrete action, particularly on its bid for a U, N. seat.
