PAGE TWELVE BLYTHKVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY. JANUARY T, 1V4S Marines Bolster Anti-Red Morale Supplement to Fleet Not Regarded at U.S. Movement of Troops WASHINGTON, Jan. 7 (UP) — Dispatch of nearly 1,000 additional Marine* to the O. B. Fleet in the Mediterranean lj generally regarded here u a gesture to bolster the morale ,of 'antl-Communist forces Ln the area, especially In Greece, In the face of bold diplomatic and military offensives by the Communist. Although there has been a lot of unofficial tallc about the possibllty of eventually having to send Arner- lean troops to Greece if the situation there continues to worsen, departure of the Marines is not con- ildered that kind of a step. However, the administration ha not yet closed the door to the possibility that sometime It might have to aslc for Congressional approva to move troops luto Greece. The administration Is In a difficult position Ui Greece. Nearly a year after asking for the Greek aid program, the military situation is still deteriorating and the economic construction program has hardlj fotten under way. Reluctant to Ask Funds With the Marshall Plan dchali about to start In Congress, the ad ministration Is very reluctant t> Interrupt it to ask for more mono for the Greek army or authority I take more drastic action in Greece Thus It Is diverting to the Oreo military forces money originally al located there for economic recon struction. The present crisis In Greece was I precipitated near the end of 1947 i by guerrilla announcement of the 1 formation of a "free Greek" government In Northern Greece and ! new guerrilla military offensives in the mountains. The United States ts greatly concerned lest Greece's Northern Corn munlst neighbors reccgnh.e the "Free Greek" government and lias warned them against doing so. The result has decn that the administration is trying by various means to bolster the forces resisting Communism in Greece, especially by means which are short of requiring new requests from Congress. .

Oov. Vail pittman admitted here that Utah officials had complained Nevada wai sending jreople on a roundabout trip through every Nevada watcrhole to get to Salt- Lake City, Utah. The Nevada signs claim the Nevada way to Utah Is the "fastest route." Utah snys the Utah way Ls 100 miles shorter and has better weather. Since the signs went up, they added, the Utah cities oi SI. George and Cedar City had lost 18 per cent of their business, Pittman, attending a Senate sub- commltte hearing, said he was Investigating the complaint and would have th c signs changed if , they were wrong. I It was Utah's second cry of thief j In a week. When Nevada tried to i make snow by bombing cumulus clouds with dry ice, Utah Attorney [ General Groves Giles got out his ' law books to "consider carefully" filing for a federal injunction to keep Nevada from stealing water , nature meant for Utah. 1 "Nevada should cease anil desist Its attempts to milk our clouds and appropriate water intended by nature for us." Salt Lake City Chamber ol Commerce wired. The city of Reno, seeking legal advice In turn, said that If those were Utah's cloud 1 ;, It would slap a fax bill on them for Hying over Nevada ground.
