TUESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1947 Yugoslav Sentries Camera Shy But Determined to Prevent Glimpse Inside Iron Curtain By VI rtll Unkley United Prtn Staff Correspondent HOAD BLOCK NO. 7, Trieste Free State, Dec 16. (U.P D-YUBU- •lav sentries are camera shy. They act as if a pointed camera Mre a machlncgun.

The OI's are well-disclpllnefl but little they know they could ' do against a determined attack. Just a Symbol, They Saj"II you don't think we're Just a symbol, take a look at that rugged high ground all around us," they said calmly. "That's Yugoslavia. If the Jugs ever really try to come in here, it's Bataan all over again for us." The Americans, under command of Col. Numa A. Watson, live In a warm pineboard shack. They have first class winter clothing, weapons, food Held gla.wes, cameras, radios, and modern field communications. They guard an ordinary red-and- «'hlte painted steel rail roadblock In pairs, day and night. They think it Is a little silly. All they do is control civilian traffic- using the asphalt road to get from their homes n Yugoslavia to their fields on Jobs In the free territory, or vice! Only 25 yards down the road is a similar Yugoslav road block symbolic r" iTTV" " lll "" cs la 'er. but kcp •" the Iron curtain.

This road block tells the story of suspicion and totalitarian fenr Two truckloads of people escaped from lugoslnvia several weeks ago by crashing through both the Yugoslav and American road blocks. Now the Yugoslavs are taking no mor« chances. The Yugoslav sentries are billeted In a cave In the side of the mountain beside the road. The cave is covered with a piece of sheet Iron. Guards are Camera Shy The guard at the road block diir- t ng my visit was a large, tough- looking soldier carrying a German' maiiser rifle and a German army cartridge belt. His cape, greatcoat pants and boots were of Russian color, cut and make, rt was cold but he wore no gloves. The Americans said the Yugoslav sentries were neither friendly nor unfriendly but Incredibly camera shy. Some of us stood against the American road block while one leveled a camera' The lens looked at us and on past toward the Yugoslav sentry. The sentry promptly turned his back. Then he retired into the cave completely out of sight. He came ^ t ^;f r . a '"' inutcs Ia >". but kept tlnvla, are two additional stone barricades. These are three-foot walls of loose stones,.Each Is built three-fourths of the way across the road, starting , g from either side and overlapping In his left shoulder. Col. Watson said this behavior avor was common with Yugoslav troops all along the line. He attributed It to the use of seemhfgiy harmless photographs in Yugoslav political trials, with damaging results. The Iron curtain seems silly when you get up next, to it—But both American and Yugoslav sentries at Outpost No. 7 held their rifles at ready, with bayonets fixed BLYTH EVILLE Machine Shop III So. 2nd St. Phone 2821 Taft-Hartley Act Ruling Announced by NLRB > WASHINGTON, Dec. 16 (UP) — The National Labor Relations Board ruled yesterday that unions may not use closet! shop agreements to prevent members from switching bargaining representatives The board's ruling was the first, .such under the Tan-Hartley Act but only a restatement of policy established under the old Wagner Act In the Hutland Court c.i.5e. The board said that "a labor organization cannot, by means ol Us membership rules, restrict the freedom of employes to designate R ne>" collective bargaining representative." The board's ruling was in a case involving the Carpenter's Union (AFL) and the E. L. Bruce Co Mem phis, Term. The .board ruled that the Carpenter's Union illegally forced the company to discharge the employes because of the closed shop agreement. But by a 2-1 vote the board refused to make the union liable for the worker's back pay They were discharged in !945 and subsequently rehired within six mouths when they rejoined the Carpenters Union. The charges against the company were brought by the firemen and Oilers, (AF1>). The six carpenters had withdrawn to Join the other AFL organization.
