PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Arraigned Soviet Union's 'War of Nerves' Fails to Cause Any Fears on Part of U.S. General in Berlin BERLIN, Jiin. IS. (U.P.)—Gen. Lucius Clny. connn*nder-ln-ch!et of American forces In Germany, said last night that American repre- MoUtittt ait In Berlin with "no (ear* and no nen'et" refardleM what may h»pp«n. Ttie statement by the top United States commander In Burop* wax made to responw to a V. P. request for clarlflcntlon of the American position in the light of Soviet "hints" that the Western Allied clear I out of Berlin, » —— I Clay made plain that the United States reprewntatlves have full confidence in their position, regardless of what happens. "We sit here as representatives of a country with Immeasurable Btrehgth," said' Clay. 'As such we have no fears and no nerves." Clay said flatly: "I am here and Intend to stay here ns long as the decisions are in my hands." The American commander revealed no alarm over veiled Russian warnings, indicating a Soviet de- air* to turn Berlin Into a one-power rather than a four-power city and indicating the start of a war of nerves directed toward that end. Olay said he had no advance Information onwhat might occur at the scheduled Jan. 20 meeting of the allied control council—first meeting on the four-power group since the breakup of the foreign ministers meeting in London. The Ruslans today prohibited the publication In newspapers under their control of American statements refusing In advance to discuss any change in the four-power rule of Berlin. The American statement, however, cheered thousands of Germans In the Western zones of Berlin who feared they might be left under R«s- tian rule if the Americans and British were forced out. Assurances that the American." are In Berlin to stay were given the Germans In the British and American tones by Maj. Gen. George r Hays, deputy American governor, and printed on front pages of West- trn zone newspapers. The Ruslans, fanning the propaganda fires against the Western allies, broadcast a report ov6r the Soviet-controlled Berlin radio asserting that the Jan.. 20 meeting ~>t the allied control council might be postponed. The radio report said the postponement might result from delays in meetings of two subordinate bodies, the coordinating committee and the allied Kommandatura. American officials said the meec- Ing scheduled was unchanged an,! they knew nothing that might prove to be a basis for the Russian report. and Curious Boys End Junkman's 15-Year Record a* Counterfeiter NEW YORK, Jan. 15 (UP)-A tiny, wrinkled 73-year-old junkman waa held today by the Secret Serv ic* wh» aatd he wu "one of the most successful counterfeiters in history."
