WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 1952 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Stalin's Trojan Horse: One of a Ser/es- World Federation of Trade Unions Accused of Being 'Message Center' Editor's Note: The Communists are using sympathetic trade unions M a weapon In Europe. The "front" In an organization with Vienna headquarters. William L. Ryan, AP foreign news analyst who Is tour- in; Europe, denicis the setup in this second of a series which began yesterday with an appraisal of the Trojan Horse Moscow Is setting up In Europe. By WJLLIAM L. RYAN- VIENNA (AP)—Behind every open Communist party in Europe is a hidden Inner organization with strings leading to Moscow. The Cominform co-ordinates the overall drive to dominate Western Europe. One-of the Cominform's principal helpers Is the World Federation of Trade Unions, working to co-ordinate the work of front organizations. The WFTU, with headquarters in Vienna, serves as a transmission belt for the Coinlnform. The WFTU is housed in a building within the Rlngstrasse, the international section of divided Vienna. The building, at 3 Sallerstaette, Is also used by Soviet officials of various industries the USSR has taken from Austria. WFTU is not registered with the Austrian government, as it ordinarily should be under Austrian law. Its foreign officers have asked the police for residence permits and have been refused, on the ground that the WFTU is not a legal organization in Austria. This ordinarily would mean the WFTU would have to clear out. Reds Challenged To Investigation Of Germ Warfare' \VACHINGTON. (IP) — Secretary of State Acheson has challenged the Communists to submit to impartial investigation their "fantastic" charge the Allies are waging germ warfare in Korea. In a sharply-worded statement late yesterday, Acheson said: " We have dented th is no asense | about germ warfare in Korea bc- " fore. We would not bother to deny it agaiu were it not for the fact that the Communists are spreading these charges around the worjd at ihe same time they are stalling in the truce negotiations." Two Drivers 'Arrested' To Listen to Highway Patrol Radio Compliment ANADARKO, Okla. (&) — Two drivers traveling on U. S, 62 towards Anadarko yesterday were surprised by an unusual Highway Patrol maneuver. They were stopped, ordered out of their cars, and brought into patrol cruiser. The cruiser's radio blared: •*] want to thank you men for youx good driving. You're the best drivers I've seen aH day on the road," The voice was that of Trooper Art Hamilton who had been cruising in an airplane above the high way checking drivers.

Gen McGrath's national racketcerin survey has run into some dlfficul tips as a result of questions raisec by U. S. judges on how Tar federa grand juries can legally go. Specifically, it is reported tha some judges have doubts that jury convened under U. S. author ity can inquire into strictly loca offenses. Others are concerned about pos sible "runaway juries" which may g fnr afield in any blanket inquir such as that proposed into genera crime conditions. CEASE-FIRE (Continued from Page I) agents. The request for names of 50,000 ROKs. whom the Reds say "do not exist," was based on Communist radio boasts of the-number of prisoners they had captured. The Allies insist the Reds impressed most of them into the North Korean Army. Men 'Keleasefl at Front' Lee repeated today; "We released at (he front the majority of prisoners of war whom we cap- turert." Adm. libby said none of the day's exchanges makes "any difference in the principle of voluntary repatriation," key issue before the subcommittee. "They ivon't buy voluntary repatriation and we won't drop it.' 1 Mel 14 Minutes Staff officers working on truce supervision met for only 14 minutes. Each side said it had nothing new to offer and there was no point in just talking, Their current stumbling block Is Red insistence that Russia help supervise the truce and Allied refusal to consider the Soviet Union. Both group.s meet again at 11 a.m. Thursday (9 p.m. EST Wednesday). BANKERS (Continued from !*age 1) president of the First Nationr Bajik here; B. A.

Vienna is entirely too valuable to it and to its Communist bosses. Vienna is a WesUin city of great culture, a city respected all over the civilized world. It makes an Ideal point, from the Communist view, for launching various propaganda drives and for coordinating Communist efforts. So the WFTU's foreign officers ipealed the police decision to the curity director, the next author- up the ladder from the police, necessary, the WFTU simply ill ignore the Austrian order and main under Soviet protection, oreigu officers of the WFTU live i the Soviet sector, under soviet rotectlon. Thei r building in the ing is leased from the Society for le Promotion of Cultural and Eco- omic Relations Between Austria nd the USSR", called the Austrd- ovtet Society for short. The WFTU office is on the sec- lid floor. The rest is occupied by oviet officials of such enterprises i the distributing agency for oil •om the zistersdorf fields, which he Russians have taken over. The WFFU serves the Kremlin ell. It Is involved in every peace ffensive propaganda attempt o! he USSR. It is a training ground or agitation and strike techniques t is a sounding board for every Soviet project. Giuseppe di VHtorio of Italy is iresident of WFTU. The Commu lists who shuttle back and forth between Western capitals and Vienna are in the main a shadow; group little known outside the par. :y. It is only for the big show, .hat the big names show up pub icly. The WFTU, pretending to n olely a labor union and not a Communist weapon, attempt :hrough its various affiliates am its slogans about labor rights U attract workers from the non-com :nunist unions. The WFTU alread las been extremely active in thi way in the Middle East, tying th "rights of workers" to the "figh against imperialism." But the WFTU fools nobody wh has followed the Communist drive The recent international conferenc of the Red-dominated Metal Work ers Union in Vienna Is a synthe-s of all the labor drives pushed b WFTU. The Metal Workers Union firs issued resolutions demanding high er pay, shorter hours, paid vaca tions, old age pensions, social curity and many other things. The it unmasked itself, it proceeded i pass resolutions for a five-powi peace pact, the insistent cry of th Soviet peace offensive. It oppose remilitarization of the West, t> North Atlantic Treaty Organiza tion, and rearming in West Oe many. (Neil—Italy, a key point.)
