BHTHEVI THE DOMINANT VOL. XLIV—NO. 209 Mjrthevill* Courier Blythevllli Dally Newi Mississippi Valley Leader Blythevlll* Herald Y, NOVKMBER 26, Paris Police Use Tear Gas to Halt 'Rioting Strikers 20 Russians Ordered Out of France as Disorders Increase PARIS, Nov. 26. IUP)—Thousands of strikers marching on police headquarters in Lyon today were scattered by tear gas in a flareup of violence in the Communist-led strike wave which had all but paralyzed France. A call for a general strike of railroad workers fell short of realization. Some trains were running in and out of Paris, although nationwide transport was crippled. Premier Robert Schuman's government decided to retreat before the "legitimate" demands of French labor for wage Increases. Schuman expected to announce his program to combat the strikes in a nationwide radio broadcast tonight. The government ordered 20 Rus- alaiis expelled from France. Interior ministry officials said they were active in fomenting the dis- .o «rder» which began with a Com- v| munlst-led strike and riot at Mar- *^ Kill*. The flurry of violence at Lyon was the first on such a scale since the Marseille riots two weeks ago. Strikers in Lyon held a. meeting at the Central Labor Exchange under the auspices of the General Confed eration of Labor. After the meeting several thou- san dstrikcrs moved on the prefecture of police. A large force of officers resorted to tear gas to disperse the massed strikers. The finishing touches were put to Schuman's program In a four- hour cabinet meeting. Pending communication/ of the cabinet's decisions to labor leaders and employers, no details were revealed. But a spokesman said the cabinet contemplated an at least partial satisfaction of the,workers' demands, coupled with strong: measures to combat inflation. Tha spokesman said that within a week new-legislation would be put before the assembly to regulate the right Schools to Close Two Days for Thanks Holiday Pupils in Blythevllle schools will get a long holiday weekend, It was disclosed today when W. B. Nicholson, superintendent of schools, announced thaat classes would be dismissed both Thursday and Friday in observance of Thanksgiving.

(U.P.)—Russian Foreign . Minister V. M. Mololov today called for an early end of the Big Four administrative role In Germany and proposed the Immediate creation o[ a democratic eto. Besides boosting personal ex- npllons, it would extend comnmn- y property rlgljts to taxpayers In II .states. This would permit hus- ands and wives to split Incomes for ix purposes. It woulrt also grant oinc percentage reductions In tuxes. The Truman administration, I through Secretary of the Treaiury | John W. Snyrier, has reaffirmed Its opposition to any lax cut] until all foreign aid need> are met and provisions Is made for Uebt «-' ductUm and a balanced budjet. Originally, Kniitson frowned on proposals lo raise personal exemptions by $100, largely because It would represent a heavy loss in revenue and leavt little for tax reduction through other means, However, he assented to the wishes ol a majority of' his Republican colleagues who believe that feature would make the measure more palatable to Democrats and hence more difficult for the President to veto, especially In an election year as 1948 will be. Mr. Truman twice vetoed Republican tax reduction bills at the last ty and oilier sweeping powers originally requested by President Tinman 'In hi* I0-jx>lnt anli-lnllntlon and the split-Income features.

Community property rights, It us estimated, would cost the Treasury 1800.000,000, oi which »600,000,000 would be In personal tuxes awl the remainder In estate taxes, This would leave $1,200,000,000 ol the proposed $4,000,000,000 cut available for the percentage reductions. These reductions, It was learned, would be smaller for the to-called midd»;-lncome taxpayer* .because they would benefit most from community properly rights. The percentage detalln are now being developed by experts of the joint congressional committee ou internal revenue taxation. Knutson expects to have a bill ready for Introduction by Dec. IB.

It was believed that they would be taken to the border of the Russian zone of Germany, probably by plane. The Communist-dominated federation of transport workers failed in its attempt to paralyze France's railroad system with a general strike. despite sabotage and violence. Some Trains Operating Trains ran In and out of Paris, the center of France's rail system, though on a reduced schedule. At two provincial points, Bordeaux and Valence, trainmen voted overwhelmingly lo stay on the Job. police guarded locomotives at Gare Montparnasse, where there were several cases of sabotage yesterday. At Choisy le Roi, 50 miles •«! south of Paris, strikers stopped V? a train, beat up the engineer and made all the passengers get out. police arrested three strikers. Other violence was reported, especially at Gare du Nord, where strikers tried to persuade working rallwaymen to quit, police reinforcements were rushed to the station to protect the non-strikers. A complete walkout of railroad men would add 480,000 to the 1,200,000 workers on strike. And, It would bring the long-expected showdown between the communists and the government. The Christian Federation of Railroad Workers, only a fraction of the size of the transport union, ordered its members to stay on thfi- job. It charged the strike was "unleashed by the Communist Parly' although a majority in the Communist-dominated unions did not. want it. Thirteen thousand more miners in the Mcuthc and Moselle department obeyed an order to go out on general r^strike. stentlons to "yes" votes If the United States made clear it really ;wanted their support. Hostilities Feared ippines Delegate Carlos P. lo, absent at all ^ previous on the .Palestine-'issue,' told :mbly his governrhent could 'approve" partition because It would invlt* hostilities in the Holy Land. The 1 indications of strengthened Arab support came in the wake of a warning by Canda that if the UN votes down partition, ferocious warfare will break out in Palestine and spread to other parts of the world. Great Britain took the rostrum in closing hours of the meeting to underscore Britain's coolness toward partition and at the same time reaffirm its promise to d"o nothing to obstruct partition If the assembly approces it. Sir Alexander Cadogan reminded the UN that Britain would not allow any of its troops or administrative oficers in the Holy Land to participate in forcing a Jewish state on the Middle East. the A majority of the councllmen reported that they have received numerous complaints in regard to [Hughes cement plant because noise'and dust resulting Iri operation.

Operators at the cleaning firm had blocked the street with a fence, it was explained. The resolution stated that this street had been a public thoroughfare for more than 25 years. Two Issues .were postponed for consideration until December session of the Council. One was acceptance by the city of approximately eight and a quarter acres on the West edge of Blytheville that were annexed by a County Court order. Uncertainty as to one boundary ol this area led to delaying voting on the matter by the aldermen. Tho other was an application by W. B. Nicholson, superintendent of Blytheville schools, for some surplus buildings to be transferred from the air base to Harrison Negro School to alleviate crowded conditions there. Action on the application was postponed because the ciiy ,-irdlng to.reports of the 'Mu'nez had placed several pi«wood around the wash kettle In an effort to re-kindle the fire After placing the wood around the kettle he obtained a live-gallon can of kerosene from the back porcl of his home and poured oil on tlv wood, the report said. : Live coals under the wood ignited Immediately causing a flash.

Its adoption ous stemmed from the shipping of 1100 bales of West Coast -cotton to Blytheville compress. Farmers and buyers of that area hotly protested this shipping practice, declaring 'that It gave Ea*t Arkansas' superior rain-grown fiber a bad reputation with millers. The convention was climaxed by an address lost night by National Farm Bureau Federation President Edward A. O'Neal, who called for farm unity and retention of the basic farm legislation now in force.

O'Neal said that what farmers need is to find ways to Improve and . strengthen existing legislative programs rather than seek program. The pleas were made by Secrc? lary of Agriculture Clinton P.
