PAGE TWIiLVB BLYTHKVILLK (ARK.) COURIER NEW1 TUESDAY, JANUARY M, IMS Mississippian Flays Truman Governor Asserts Southern "Way of Life" Endangered By Harold Foreman ITnltccI Prcu Staff Correspondent JACKSON, Miss., Jan. 20. (UP)— Gov. Fielding L. Wright said today that Mississippi may be forced to secede from the National Democratic Party because of "anti-Southern" legislation he accused party leaders of fostering iii Congress. Wright, in a speech marking his second inaugural, accused President Truman, Congress and the northern press and radio commentators of "seeking to tear down and disrupt" the Southern way of life—which Includes segregation of Negroes. Forms of "secession" movements have recently sprung up in South Carolina and Arkansas, but so far appeared not to have won general indorsement. The Mississippi governor suggested no pattern for Mississippi's national political future should ha lead the Democrats out of tho party. "I would regret to see the day come when Mississippi or the South should break with the Democratic Party in a national election," the governor said. "But vita! principles •• and eternal truths transcend party lines. They day is now at band when determined action must be taken." Fe*n Total "Destruction" Wright said national party Icacl- «rs are "using as their tools such infamous proposals as the FEPC. antl-lynching legislation, anti-poll tax bills and now the anti-segregation proposals." The late Sen. Theodore a. Bilbo, D., Miss., was the state's most active opponent of this legislation. "We of the South." Wright- said, "will no longer tolerate bcinp; the target for this type of legislation which would not only destroy our way of life but which, If enacted, would eventually destroy the United States." Wright said the South must show the Democratic National Committee that "we mean precisely what, we say and we must, M necessary. Implement our words with positive action." On the race question,- the governor said: * "The uninterrupted progress •which has been made will be continued in an orderly, effective manner if both races are. left alone by those unfamiliar with the true situation. This problem is being solved by Mississippians and by Southerners in a wholesome ami constructive manner." Wright advanced to the governorship Nov. 2, 194f>, from the oflice of lieutenant governor when Gov. Thomas L. Bailey died in olfice. He •was elected to a four-year term last year.

Dulles, 11 delegate at the United Nations General Assembly, admitted that "the United Nations is not yet a strong enough reliance" to defend Europe from aggression. EAST-WEST Big (Continued from I'age 1) Pour London conference Germany broke down in December. Clay's scheduled Washington conferences will be made against the backdrop of widespread labor unrest in the Western zones, engendered by hunger. The strikes that cost the British zone 3,000,000 man-hours last week spread lo the American zone yesterday when 2.000 workers in the Wiesbaden-Ciebrich area walked otf their jobs in protest against a 50 !«• cent cut in the fat ration. The ration was slushed in the American zone to provide food for Ruhr workers, who struck last week aecause there lias been no fat lo fill their ration quotas for the past three weeks. This deadlock will be examined by the bizonal economics counci In a meting tomorrow at Frankfurt "Not one of the 16 nations participating In (he Marshall plan, sharing a continent dominated by Soviet land power, can be collected, standing alone, lo defy the power," he said. He recommended a regional defense lor Europe "like our hemispheric pact made at Rio last year." "So long as there is no regional unity for security," he said, "each nation will be weak and afraid. Each will turn lo us for moral and material support which could come, and properly should come, from a unity rf their own making." Dulles said he did not feel himself qualified as expert enough to Kivc an opinion on the $6.800,003- OCO first instalment on the Marshall plan. But he suggested it would lie "wiser to appropriate the full amount Which qualified experts think prudent rather than to cut it in the hope that uncertainties will operate in favor of lesser cost." Regarding the administration of Western Germany, Dulles reiterated that the Ruhr area be made productive. He proposed that Germany be included in a proposed customs and monetary union of the European nations.' Warns of Fool's Paradise Dulles urged support for the pro- gratn stating: "It is certain that our nation cannot long survive as a mere citadel ol self-indulging privilege, surrounded by mussed human misery. . . The United States is today a paradise compared to most of the, world. But it will be a fool's paradise if we do not make honest, substantial efforts to help others to lift themselves out of the morass into which they have fallen." Dulles said the plan represented "not c'.inrity" but "a belief that we here in the United States will be much belter off if the 250.000.COO peoples of Western Europe become a vigorous community of free men and a counterbalance to the Soviet system of police states." Tile seven improvements in the ERP recommended by Dulles were. 7. The administrator must have ctrar authority in business matters without Ktate Department Interference, although !n matter! of foreign policy he ihould be under the direction of the President and (he ucretary of state. Meanwhile, Lewis W. Douglas, U.S . ambassador to Britain, has passed the word that lie doesn't want the Job of administering the Marshall plan. However, Douglas' confidante m Congress weren't too sure that tlie 53-year-old diplomat couldn't be persuaded to accept the $20,000 a year administrator's Job. Any reluctance on Douglas' part to trade the London embassy for Washington's political Jungle would add to President Truman's headaches. Mr. Truman yesterday told a group of senators at the White House that one of his toughest Jobs was to find capable men for top Jjbs. One legislator asked if there I "wasn't anyone in Missouri," and i it terminated the discussion. Douetas, who has had extensive business experience in Arizona and New York, has been highly regarded in administration circles for the Marshall plan Job. It would put him in the critical post of determining wtiat should be shipped where and when. As a former congressman, "hard headed" business man, budget director and blunt I talking diplomat he is higly regarded on Capitol Hill. Many Republicans have said their votes on the Marshall plan would depend on Mr. Truman's ability to land a capable administrator. Many congressmen think Douglas fills the bill. 1. The purpose of the plan to sustain free institutions in Europe should be set forth in clear and unambiguous language. 2. Continued aid must be based upon continued cooperation by the The council will vote on a bill to uconlcs nnA governments of the par. face the efficient collection and I distribution ot food from farms | and ports. countries. 3.
