FRIDAY. .JANUARY IS, 1<M7 BLYTOKV1LLB (ARK.> COURIER MBW8 Byrnes Sees '47 As Less Difficult Year Of Travel Lies Ahead For Secretary ' Of State BY U. 1C. SHACKFOKI) United 1'ress Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. Jan. 3—(UP) — Secretary' O f State James F. Byrnes Is convinced lhal 1947 cannot be n.s difficult as 194s in wor'.il affairs, but is well aware that Ihe major postwar problems still re- ^niain unsolved. W For Byrnes, who will be C8 years "Id In May, tlie oiillook Is another year of travel -long airplane flights to other major capitals lor more interminable debates on peace set- tlctnonls. Uisl year Byrnes spent almost 29 of Ihe 52 weeks away from Washington—at London, Paris and New York. With the German, Austrian and .Japanese treaties still to be negotiated, the chances of his being at his comfortable desk at Washington even (hat much this year are not very good. Byrnes starts 1947 with .several advantages, however. He himself feels far more confident than a .vear a«o. But it is confidence nnd optimism tempered with some of tiie toughest experience an American secretary of state ever had undergone. A year ago Byrnes, still a neo- phltc at diplomacy, hoped a peaceful world was just around the corner. But today lie knows it Isn't He i.s aware that the road to pcacs after war is harder and longer than the road to victory during war. The major advantages whicl Byrnes starts the New Year arc: 1. An American' public that ii central supports his foreign poll cics. 2. His own belief that responsible .^ Republican leaders in the new If Congress will support his foreig policies. 3. Eighteen months of almos constant dealing with the Soyie and British foreign ministers 01 the five satellite treaties, during which lime he has come to know both v. M. Molotov and Ernes Bcvln very well. Byrnes also has the advantagi • low of dealing with a Soviet nn ion which for two months ha shown a very conciliatory attitud toward the United states. Rightly or wrongly, Byrnes i able to and does chum that thi change of Soviet attitude" is th result or his "firm but patient policy—a policy his critics hav called "get tough with Russia," The secretary's schedule allo him .(wo "quiet" months here . Washington Jjefore flying to Mos co\v_for the March luvopening i peace talks on Germany. Before 1 leaves, there are dozens or pro! lems he must race. These incluc Argentina, Palestine, China, Korea, Greece. Bulgaria, atomic and disarmament issues, and the ever- present problem of general relations with the Soviet Union.

(NEA Tclepholo.l Youthful Talmadge Says Hell Soon Restore White Primary Reinforcements Landed In Indo-China By French PARIS, Jan. 2. <UP)_The first French reinforcements to Indo- China landed from the Liner Pasteur at Cape St, Jacques near Sai- Kon today amid reported Viet Nam threats to blow up a nearby munitions deport, the French press agency reported. The size of the force on the Pasteur was not given. However, the vessel is one of Prance's largest transports. No incidents were reported in connection with the landing although the agency said the Namiio Viot Nam group in Cochin, China had ordered partisans to halt tlie reinforcements by blowing up the deport. The dispatch said that part of the force would continue. tii& .voy- ape up the Indo-Chinese coast to the bay of Along to reinforce troops in Tonkin province. Additional reinforcements were scheduled to go to Indo-China on Hie luxury liner lie dc France which recently was withdrawn from the North Atlantic run. HV ED BKI11GKS Jnitccl Press Hlnff Correspnndeiit ATLANTA, Gil.. Jan. . (UP>Youthful Herman Eugene Talnuuige .iltcd back in a straight chair, Milled n mangled black cigar from lis mouth, hooked a thumb through red galluses and .said. "Ycs- slr. I'll be governor two weeks irom now; we're going to restore the white primary.." It was 12:30 a.m.- in the hotel headquarters where Herman was conducting a whirlwind campaign for the post left vacant by his famed late father, 'Gene Talmadge, who dieil on the Lhresh- hold of inauguration for governor of Georgia for a fourth time. Has Necessary pledges "I've got plenty more than enough pledges for the legislature to elect me and the office will be turned over to me peaceably," said the 33-year-old attorney and navy veteran. ;i You can put this down —there won't be any lawsuits ovei the governor's office. 1 ' But Gov. Ellis Giggs Arnall doesn't quite agree. He has said he will not surrender, the office utiti Lt.-Gov.-Eiect M. E .Thompson is inaugurated as .'governor. Arounc the hall on the I<Hli floor of the Henry Grady Hotel Thompson is waging just as vigorous a campaign for the jcb. Legislators nM5 be seen going from TalmaUge to Thompson headquarters and vice versa to listen to arguments. But not many of them arc saying how they will vote when the assembly convenes Jan. 13. Young Talmadge is a physical carbon copy of his late father. He has the same squarish, jut-jawed face, the same dark gleaming eyes (but no sparliiclesj, the same thick black hair that hangs over his forehead, the same wide mouth. 1 Herman does not consciously im- : itato his father. He does not need to. Heredity took care of that..' Close your eyes and you would swear it was tile voice of "old Gene" himself, transfused with 1 the bounce and boom of youth.' Not quite as rirawly and without j the low country idioms his father, used, such as "ain't a-gonnti do i Geological Laboratory Destroyed By Fire LITTLE ROCK, Ark.. Jan. 2. (UPl —The laboratory of the Department was destroyed By Tire here this morning. The frame building was located just outside the walls of the old Slate Penitentiary which serves as police headquarters. Police Director Jack Porter said I he lire apparently started from faulty wiring. He could give -13 immediate estimate of the damage. Slate Geologist Harold Foxhall said Ihe buiklinf contained an office, considerable -scientific equipment and samples of Arkansas minerals. K The laboratory was used by the ^lepartmcnt's only chemist, Troy Carney. Has Knci'Ky lo 1)0 Closest associates say Herman's mentality .departs from his father's in that he is more easily reasoned with, less impulsive and abrupt, more apt to lake advice on close [joints. His six-foot, 180-pound frame Is chockful of nerveless energy. He bounced up lo answer the telephone a times durini; the interview. After each interruption lie resumed his story exactly where lie had broken off. Like bis lale father, whom he called "Pap: he wastes no words. When he walked Ihc quarter-deck of his ship in Pacific waters oil Okinawa near war's end, Herman said, he vowed he would never re-enler Gcilgla politics if he gol back home. "It seemed a fruillcss life lo me, 1 he explained. "Too full of character assassins." Herman bitterly resented uncomplimentary remarks about liis father in hfs many campaigns Once, when lie was a student at the University- of Georgia, he thrcatcii- °!, to wn 'P a newspaper editor at Athens over an editorial.
