WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1949 (ARK.) COURIER THE NATION TODAY— r~End Reviews Emphasize Gains in Western Europe in Struggle for a Lasting Peace Ily James Marlow WASHINGTON, Dec. 28. (/I'j—In reviews of 1949 great emphasis Is put on this fact: Another year gone nnd still peace in the world. That's something, although no one really expected war this year. And, so long as there's peace, there's always this hope; If, year after year, peace can be maintained, maybe, somehow, Bomeway, things will straighten out and there'll be no war. Nevertheless. 1949 wa.s R year of* maneuvering, O f getting ready for that time whon—or If—the show- do'.vti comes, In world affairs the United States made some gains, suffered some jxttspsiior of the atom fiomb, hr : U.S. h:iti a great psychological ach'ama^e over its pnteiUial loe, Ru.^ia, in the eyes of the world. It had lost thwt advantage by Sept. 23, when President Truman announced there v:a.s evidence of an atomic o;pla=ion in Russia, And the U.S., bonding the driyc to stop communism, suffered another blow, psychological nml actual, when the communists took over Clv.niv This means that communists now control most of Asia and Eastern Europe. with 731,000,000 of the world's 2,254.000,000 people now Jiv- tuc under communism. There's no reason to believe that now, having gobbled up most of A.-J.T, the Communists won't try to prah the rest. That try may be one of the most critical moves of 1950 If not in 1950, then later. U.S. Closer to AVest Europe On ihi> other hand Ihe U.S. tied iUdf closer to Western Europe bj sE-ming the Atlantic pact with Us Etllics there and promising then plenty of arms to stand off a Russian attack , Both these moves, by solidifying Die West a JJttle more, strengthenec It in Its effort to halt communism It meant, really, a U.S. promise t< go to wnr if Russia attacked Western Europe. And the Marshall plan for heh> lu» Europe economically was doing figine good, for European production ijj'i rising although European Irndj ^s*as .si HI not ns high as tt might bn And the Wftst gained when Mar shall Tito of Yugoslavia broke witl Staliii and the Russians. It was th first break in the hitherto soli front of communism. The West has promised to helj Tito and one of it-s main hopes an policies for the future Li to encour na,e other Titos in other comniti nist lands to throw off the Russia! yoke. \Vhcn 1D49 started Germany Ftill split into two sections: th Eastern part run by the Russian: the \Vc.stern part by the Unitci Siuics, Britain and France. Berlin Blockade Lifted The West \vas still sending in sup plias to its .scctioiLs of Berlin by nil lift, .since the Russians - --in whos section of Germany Berlin lies—ha cut off nil land supplies. Finally the West ami Hussta made a deal, the blockade was lifted, and the airlift ended. Hut this didn't end the struggle for Germany between East and \ ^Before the year's end the west -'IPfc --^t up a German government in the West, nnd the Russians had set up another Gentian government in the East. So the problem of Germany v,n.s still n total mess. WILSON NEWS Hy Mrs. R. F.
