FAQC SOC BLYTHZVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWi Russians Adopt Role of Protector Soviet' Union Say* It 'Dtfcnds' Rights Of Both Jiwt, Arabt By DMuld 3. G (United IVew Staff Compondent) WASHINGTON, D:=. 17 (UP)— Government Intelligence expert* today reported a shift In Soviet propaganda . to play up Russia as the protector of both the Jews and Arabs against American and British "Imperialism." These experts analyzed the trend as an effort by the Russians to lay the ground work for & toehold In Palestine which would be used as a Communist springboard for infiltration into the oil-rich Middle East. Russian propagandists were said to have ignored or played down the United Nations decision on Palestine partition until aljoiil a week) ago. Then the Communist press and radio began a campaign apparently directed at making political .capital out of the move, the experts said. Official intelligence studies made available today said the Russians • in the last few days have: 1. Emphasized that the Soviet Union "has no direct material nr . other interests In Palestine whatsoever." 2. Declared that the Soviet Union "defends the rights ol both Arabs and Jews." . 3. Asserted "there is no. guarantee that the Anglo-U. F imperialist circles will carry out these U. N, decisions in good faith." SoTiet Interest Urmcadvmlc Diplomatic officials said Russian Interest in the Middle East is far from academic. Russia's known oil reserves are estimated at about «,000.000,000 barrels, compared with • n estimated Middle East reserve of nearly 30,000,000.000, mainly held by American and British Interests. These officials said the Ruslans obviously were bent on taking advantage of the withdrawal of British troops from Palestine, and at the same time playing up decline if American popularity in the Arab world over the Palestine issue. Additional tension In the area would threaten the oil production so necessary for the Marshsll Plan. Informants poinled out that the question of forming an International force to replace British troops after May U li closely tied to ths future Century-Old Pioneer Gets Face-Liftin( Rolling again, but under borrowed power, the venerabl* "Pioneer " trail-blazing locomotive, heads for the shopi of the Chicago and North Western Railway Syrtcm, lor a complete overhaul and "retread" treatment.

Abrasive Makers Sued For Fixing of Prices WASHINGTON, Dec. 17. (UP) — The Justice Department, yesterday charged the Ahraslvc Grain Association and five of* Its member corporations with fixing prices In vlolRllon of l!ie federal And-Trtist balance o( newer '» the Middle East. Russia, they recalled, has never con- iwnted to place Soviet troops under n foreign commander. Hence It Is expected to press for a "zone'* of control similar to those now in effect In Germany and Austria. This, it was said, could serve as a "breed- Ing ground" for Communist expansion In the Middle Enst. Despite the tension In the Middle Enst, Arab states have yet rrmrte no formal threats to American Interests there. American companies own or hive concessions on an estimated 10,500,000,000 barrels of the estimated 30,000,000,000 barrels believed to be In Middle Eastern fields.
