WW5NBSBAY, AUGUST 1, 1181 BLYTHEVTLLE, (AT?KA COURIER VTEWS PAGE SEVEN Russians Crack Iron Curtain to Let Party Faithful Read Briton's 'Friends Article LONDON, Aug. 1. '«>}— Russia opened the Iron curtain & crack today to let the Communist faithful read a "let's be friends" appeal from the British Foreign Secretary Herbert Morrison. The party newspaper, Hravda. Published the Morrison statement »nd, In the same Issue, lashed back with a bitter reply denouncing all h» s«id as lies or distortions. f The unprecedented East-West exchange resulted from a challenge by Morrison last June daring Prav- <1« to print his views. Pravda agreed, provided the British press would .give equal prominence to its reply. Six London newspapers Morrisons charge that there Is no Mittal. But, the paper added: printed the full change today. Said Morrison: text of the ex- "We are * peaceful people niho want to feel secure" Russia maintains but can't while "vast armed military establish- reedom In Russia. "In no country Is there such freedom c( speech, and freedom of organization of workers, farmers, and intellectuals as In (he Soviet Union" it said in a 2,600 word re- "In the U. S. S. R. freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom o! organization does not exist for the enemies of the people, for the landlords and capitalists overthrown by the revolution. Nor State Department, Pentagon Link By-Passes 'Civilians' forces and ments. " Why not, he asked, topple the barriers set up by Russia across Europe and allow a free exchange of news, broadcasts and even tourists? "Warmongers" Charged Oh. noi Pravda answered, the' British and Americans are warmongers who threaten the Soviet Union and we cannot allow freedom to "thieves, subversive agents, terrorists and assassins." Morrison pegged his appeal to the Russian people on the argument that ignorance breeds fear and fear leads to violence. He said the possibility of a third world war would be lessened if Russia lifted restrictions and permitted Western views and visitors to circulate freely. "News" to Open Columns « Weanwhile, Russia's new English nguage propaganda magazine, News, offered to open its columns to American writers for the purpose of promoting "friendly relations." The offer was directed specifically to the New York Times. 'In New York, the Times said It had no comment on the offer.) In his 1.500 word statement, Morrison called untrue the Soviet propaganda line that Britain, in alliance with other European countries and the United States, is "arming to the teeth to attack the Soviet Union." Pact IK to Avoid War He said' the main purpose of the Atlantic Pact i* to avoid war and preserve the peace. The foreign secretary said his government Intended to devote Its energies to the economic recovery of England, but was forced to switch to rearming when it realized that Soviet Russia had adopted a postwar policy "whose only purpose aeerns to be to stir up trouble and International hatred." ifo'the Russian people were allowed, tc- leave their country ' and | travel about more, Morrison said, i they'icould learn a lot about the ' West's friendly Intentions. I Charg* Rejected % Pr»vda, which has a circulation more than two million, rejected WASHINGTON, Aug. 1. (/Pi — The liiA between the State Department and the Pentagon's military chiefs appears to have become so direct I' even by-passes some of the civilian secretaries of the armed services. This situation differs considerably from that during the pre-Korean War days of sharp policy wrangles. The reason for the change seems to be In the unique position held by George C. Marshall, a five-star general in mufti. He is secretary of Defense. Hi was secretary of stale. Congress made special dispensation to allow Marshall, a soldier, to be :iamed to Uie post of defense secre- :ary. The national security act says the defense secretary must be a civilian ard must have Been one for ten years preceding appointment. Marshall doffed his uniform In 1945, but under terms of the law creating live-star rank he remains a general ni the army. Lovctt Is Housekeeper Marsha:! gives major attention to the military side of Pentagon af- (airs The housekeeping duties tall chiefly to Deputy Defense Secretary Robert A. L/>vett, a financier who ha.s become something of the business manager for the Defense Department, and to the civilian heads of the Army, Navy and Air Force. Against this background, the Pentagon Icr.rned of this incident: The firs* word Air Secretarj Thomas K. Finletter had of the late Admiral Forrest Sherman's mission to Spain to negotiate for air and naval bases was when he read newspaper accounts on the day Sheiman arrived in Madrid.
