H. SHACKFORT) (United Press Start Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Nov. 4. (UP) — Secretary of State George C. Marshall today placed total blame on Russia for the failure ot the world to get back to a peaceful status. He warned that the world was headed for catastrophe unless the United States continues its initiative In world affairs and Its "containment" of totalitarian governments. He acknowledged that Germany Is temporarily partitioned and predicted that the United States will have to admit permanent division of Germany if the great powers continue to disagree. He praised American foreign policy for what it has done to date to block totalitarianism since the war. And he reminded Americans that the eclipse of former great powers had thrust the United States ito a position of "outstanding lead•ship in world affairs." These were the highlights of a ne' pamphlet published by the State Department at the direction of Marshall. Entitled "Aspects of Current American Policy," the 52-page booklet, for sale at 40 cents per copy at the government printing office, attempts to outline American policy on the major foreign policy problems. Publication "Timed" The pamphlet was designed for the general public and Congress because, the introduction said, because never before have the American people asked so many Questions about the facts of our international life.' The written Inquiries average 5,00( a month. The pamphlet was published 01: the eve of a special session of Congress on foreign aid and less than a month before Marshall goes to London for another Big Four meeting on Germany. Throughout the pamphlet runs this theme—Russia's interference has blocked peace; U. S. policy has blocked the spread of totalitarianism. Totalitarianism is used stead of Communism. ; 'Behind pur inability the fruits; of peace the ' " - b — Qbjcctues?8MtaHaJ curih the pamphW tant in this connection has been the attitude of the Soviet,Union, which has been characterized by intran- sigearvce in. implementing agree- menls reached on a broad range of ibjects at wartime conferences, f.ich as those at Yalta, Moscow and Totsdam." Although the pamphlet recites at length American troubles with Russia, it sidesteps some of the other major "current" problems. There is no mention anywhere of the difficult problem posed by China. Likewise it ignores such other crucial issues as Palestine, Argentina, and Spain. Emphasis on Germany Probably the most significant section, in view of the forthcoming Big Four conference, deals with Germany. For the first time the United States has admitted that Germany Is in fact temporarily divided. It blames Russia for unilateral action in Germany and charges that her chief concern is getting maximum reparations and establishing a regime "friendly" to the Soviets. "Continuation of this situation could only lead to a divided Germany, in which case tht United States would be confronted with the -task of assisting Western Germany, least, in developing along Democratic lines and in taking part in the economic rehabilitation of Europe." the pamphlet said. This was the first public warning that If the Big Pour meeting in London fails the United States will proceed with attempts to create a Western Germany and fit it into the Marshall plan program for reconstruction of Western Europe. SINGH jporaa yira ten* j Accord Possible Among Big Four Change of Attitude Seen on Part of Blustering Russians B.V JOHN B. McDERMOTT United Press Stiff Correspondent BERLIN, Nov. 4. (U.P.) — The reeling grew In informed American. British and Russian circles today that the Big Pour foreign ministers conference, opening Nov. 25 In London,, would turn ont to. be at least partly successful. The fear that the conference would be a complete failure, that East and West would be split, irrevocably and that they would go their separate ways WHS now almost completely discounted. It was a real fear as recently as only month ago. Observers here feel that the Kremlin at last has decided that the Western allies can no longer be pushed into agreements. Russians recently returned from Moscow expect surprising developments toward unification of Germany will be reached in the conference. These Russians insist that the pessimism among the Western powers is unfounded and that the German Issues confronting the foreign ministers can and will be solved. C«e veteran American diplo matio official put It like this: "Don't sell the Russians shor The Soviets will not give up their doorway to Western Germany and the Ruhr. Ruhr steel production is too important to them. They are good business men." The majority of British ind American observers In Berlin lake this practical vieu-. They believe the Russians are ready to make some concessions to retain the unity of Germany and prevent the setting of a solid barrier between East and West. Such a barrier, they believe, would to a large extent stifle the Russian aim to spread communism through the Reich across the low countries and to firmly entrench the Communist Party in France.

The Investigators are to hear representatives bureau federations in expected of farm Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi, the Dcita Council and the Agricultural Council of Arkansas. The group will report back to th« full Senate committee on agriculture and forestry. barrage Russian-con trolle d informed on the way democracy thinks and acts. The British more quietly have followed suit. Clay's counter-attack was opened yesterday when the American military government's newspaper printed a documented account of the secret agreement Russia and Germany reached just beore their mutual invasion of Poland. At any rale, there has been a marked change in Russian policy, observers here said. One American, long familiar with European politics, said it was so marked there was a strong possibility Foreign Minister Viacheslav M. Molotov might be replaced as too anti- British and anti-American. He said this was an "extremist .view," but It should not be discounted. Six-Year Term Recommended In Theft Case Arthur Beck of Lcachville was found guilty of burglary and grand larceny yesterday by a jury In the Chickasawba District of Mississippi County Circuit Court and his punishment was fixed at a total of six years In the state penitentiary. .Separate verdicts were returned and the jury recommended that he serve three years for burglary anil three for grand larceny.

Tax Cut for All Recommended Advisory Committee Asks Consideration Of Cost of Living WASHINGTON, Nov. 4. (UP) — The Tax Advisory Committee today recommended to the House Ways and Means Committee a reduction in individual income tax rates "for all." -with consideration given to living costs for those In the lower income groups. The committee's report was signed by nine of the 10 members of tlis advisory committee created by the House Ways and Means Committee to recommend revenue law changes. The full text, ol the report was distributed to the Ways and Means Committee and reporters, but publication n-as set for newspapers of Wednesday morning. In presenting the report, Advf- ._ .. sory Committee Chairman Hoswell | SI ? ecl Balanced Farming Judges to Inspect Missco Projects in State Competition Members of the state Judging committee of the Arkansas Balanced Fanning Contest will arrive In Mississippi County Tuesday lo visit the farms of the county's two entries In the state contest. The committee, which is composed of six state agricultural experts, will visit Ihe farms of Hnrshel D. Jackson of Blytheville Route X (Irsl place winner in the tenant division of the North Mississippi county contest and Lawrence Woodurd, of Osceola Route 3, winner In the landowner division of the South Mississippi County contest. These two Mississippi County*family Mngil], New York lawyer and former undersecretary of the treasury, read one paragraph from it to support the committee's contention that the. equitable adjustment of tax rates and exemptions was "a No. 1 federal tax-problem today." ".We recommend," Hie report said. "a. reduction in individual in- 'come tax rates for all, with due regard fc>r the cost of living Jet those in-{he lower Income erovps, and for the needs of the Valance of the economy." Sole' dissenting member of the 10-man advisory group was Matthew Won, a member of the American Federation of Labor's Executive Council, who submitted a mi-. nority report which was received by the committee and made a part of the record of its tax hearings. The Woll report also was to be published tomorrow. Chairman Harold Kmitson, R., Minn., of the Ways and Means Committee [hanked the special committee for its work. He. said it will be the basis for the committee's study o( a long-range tax bill. Knutson said that his group "hopes to conclude hearings on this major tax bill before the end of the year and secure passage of It in the House not, later than March 15." To Introduce "Quickie" Mill Knutson also plans to introduce a -quickie" tax reduction bill when the special session convenes on Nov. 17. "It has been our intention," Kiiut- son said, "to have this important price of (long-range) tax legislation devoted largely to so-called administrative changes in the revenue code. "This is a task long overdue because there have been no major changes enacted since 1942 and in the interim the need for amendments has become very evident. In .Tome instances conflicting court decisions on some provisions of the ]RW have added to the nece.ssity for this step." Knutson already has announced his determination to seek quick enactment, at the special session of a, bill to give taxpayers relief beginning with Jan. 1. He wants this legislation considered at the special session but has promised to abide by the decision of the House Republican Steering Committee. faun family were chosen from the four county winners submitted by County Agents Keith.
