TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1947 BL ,LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE Russian Press Preaches War Readers Led to Think U.S. Leaders Plan Attack on Soviets BV WALTER CHONKITE United Presc Staff Correspondent MOSCOW. Sept. 30. (UP>—Soviet newspapers constantly t*U their readers that the leaders of the United States are like the Nazis, so the Russian •man-ln-the-stre*t has .started to talk about the possibility of an American attack on the Soviet Union. There U a lot of war talk In Russia now, probably more than at any time since August, 1939, when widespread fear of an attack by the Nazis was lulled by the signing of a 10-year treaty of non-aggression between Russia and Germany. None of the talk Is about Russian war against the United States But every Russian who crosses the path of an American lias one que« lion: "Why does the United States want war against us."

Jonathan Walnwrighl, the hero of Bataan. had made a speech to the amateur athletic union conference and that the Sullivan award went to Felix Blanchard, a West Point football player. "This is also a gesture toward militarism," the newspaper that printed the article told its readers.
