THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 19SO BLTTHEVILLE, (ARK.)' COURTED Soviets Believed Pushing Plans to Arm E. Germany By JOHN M. HKJHTOWKR WASHINGTON, Aug. 24. (tfV-Soviel Russia !• bclievrrt here txi be pushing ahead wetMaid plans lor IIi« political and military development of Eastern Germany while western leaders negotiate on strengih- P'ling the defenses of their sector. Informed diploma is said today (here is now evidence lhat the jB[ iets have split their so-called T*ollce force 1 ' in Germany Into too organizations-one being train- p <i in actual police work atid the other being given' regular army training and armored equipment without further pretense of "police 1 ' activity. Since Germany, like Korea, is a divided nation, there Ls top-level speculation that the aim of this Soviet move may be an ultimate Korea-type assault; that is, an action by native Communist troops •gainst the Western occupation zone* with unification of the country as a fighting slogan. II this is to be the Russian pattern—and asMiminf; the Kremlin "vould risk starling a major war— experts here expect Moscow will first undertake to give Eastern Germany a pretense of legal independence comparable to that of Communist North Korea. Two Morr Nci'cssary 'IVa moves would be necessary to do this. First, the Russians would have to conclude some sort of peace treaty with the East German Communist regime. Second, they would have to withdraw their occupation forces. They would then be in position to give orders through Communist Party channels while disclaiming responsibility for the actions nf their puppets. Also, their troops ^%tild be out ol the way of any Boating. Part of the answer to this threat, in the opinion of policy makers here, is Lo build up the native defenses of Western Germany and to cln so on a scale adequate to deal with any limited German trouble- niakine [rom the East. How and when lo undertake this controlled rrrmnjnc of Western Germany U a problem of intense concern to the Western powers. Initial decisions may be made when the U. S.. British and French foreign ministers meet In New York Sept. 12. The development measure* to offset Russia's strategy is immenM- y complicated by a need for international understanding. Russia's novcs are decided In secrecy and n the last analysis by one man, but Western decisions must be a* Breed to by sharply differing governments, each with an eye to what its own people will support. Possible Aitlon Studied Even within the administration icre there has to be agreement among the State and Defence Departments and White House before the U. S. can lake a definite stand. Several lines of passible action are under intensive .study. They in- ] elude creating a substantially larg- \ er Gorman police force, re in fore- " ing the British-America]!-French occupation armies and drawing on German manpower to bolster Western European forces. At a news conference yesterday Secretary of State Acheron did not rule out any of possibilities Yet he was deliberately vague about indicating what may be done He appeared to be trying to sol.'- j pedal the whole subject pending ' some understanding with other al- | lied leaders as to action. France's traditional reluctance to see Germans given arms again, even under controls, is the biggest single barrier to quick, decision. On the German side. Chancellor Konrad Adenauer is understood to be pressing for agreement among the parties inside Germany on support of an enlarged German police force. PAGE SEVEN Two Anti-Prohibition Groups Set Up Offices in Little Rock LITTLE ROCK. Aup. 24. ffl» r — An "Arkansas Against Prohibition" organization has named O. J, "Don" Greene of Little Rock, as Its executive secretary. Greene, secretary nf Arkansas Retail Grocers Association, said he ha* obtained a three-month leave of absence lo Join the group. Greene said the. organization rvas formed specifically to fight passage of Initiated Act. No. 2 In the November general election. ^The act would ban legal sale of flQhhoiic beverages In ..rkansas. "It is an honor to become associated with a eroup of my tell citizen.* in opposine return of tnta] prohibition to Arkansas. We are fichtinp the return of wholesale bootlegging In Arkansas," Greene said. pled with education and recoerr ton of alcoholism as a medical rr- her than a moral problem. The Rev. Alson J. Smith of Stam- ord. Conn., exer.utive .secretary of he association, has been in Little Rock this month, setting up the re- eional office. He Is on sabbatical eavc from the New York E~^\. Coherence of the Methodist Church. The association will ritstrihuie •hroughout Arkansas a lS-mi!limet- x motion picture entitled "The Truth Shall Make You. Free." This film, the association said. 'shows the evils of the prohibition r« and points the way to a better solution of the alcohol problem." Another Anti-prohibition rroup also has opened headquarters in Little Rock. The Temperance and Tolerance Association of America has opened regional offices at the Hotel Marion In Little Rock that, will serve the 6outh and Southwest. Organized In 1945 by Mrs. Ida M Thnrber of Lincoln, Nebr.. the as- lociation now has 45.000 members throughout the country. Mrs. Thurber. now president ol ;?ie croup, was one of the "dry' leaders who helped bring about thp /•si nation-wide prohibition. Following repeal, she said, she felt temperance could best b€ advanced In other ways. The Temperance and Tolerance 4|kiclation seeks to promote lem- prfancfl through "enlightenment understanding and rteid iceal reru lation" of the liquor industry, con A-Bomb Rote/ Procedure Important as Cooking, Congressman Reasons WASHINGTON. Aue. 24. OI»»— It's at least as important to know what, to rlo in case of an atomic attack as to knoxv how lo cook. Rep. Kennedy i D-Mass) reasoned today. Kennedy proposed in a resolution that the Atomic Energy Commission's report. "The Effects of Atomic Wfapons." be printed as a House document. Each member would art 200 copies to distribute in his district. Kennedy estimated the printins: cost at J53.052.fi9.
