THTTRSDAT, OCT. 19, tOT Few Europeans Believe War Imminent, Publisher Says BLf JHETfLng (ARK.)' COURIER NUWB TEXARKANA If) — Europeans*. do not believe that war Is imminent but they realize that Russia Is "calling the tune and the free world Is dancing," a veteran Southwestern newspaper publisher said today. "I met no one in Europe who • thought war is imminent but no one knows when Russia may change the lune," said C.E.Palmer, publisher of the Texarkana Gazette and Daily News and a chain ol newspapers. Palmer recently returned from «. 6-week tour of Europe during which he spent most of his time talking to businessmen about world conditions. The publisher said Europeans apparently are divided as badly as *e American people on the man they want for the next president of the United States. "There is great interest in all the European countries in our presidential election", Palmer said. "Everyone seems to have a sincere respect and affection for Gen. Eisenhower and would like to see him have the honor of being president. "They feel that he has a thorough understanding of their problems and they know they can work with him. On the other hand, many lear that if Eisenhower is elected, very substantial cuts may be made In American assistance." Palmer said that great progress had been on the restoration of the war-ridden countries but that it did not appear to him to be In proportion to the amount of money which had been spent in Europe.. "There is much evidence", he said, "that the money could have been spent with less extravagance and with more efficiency and competence by the various, agencies representing our government", he said. He said West Germany had made the greatest progress to wards recovery. "West Germany is very prosperous", he said. "There is practically no unemployment and much new construction's going on. This Is understandable when it is taken into account that they have no reparations to pay and no. army to maintain, it seems to me that Canada is probably the most prosperous country In the world with West Germany a close second and probably Switzerland or the United States third." He said he received the impression that Germany seem headed lor sincere co-operation with the West in defense and in an economic union of Europe. "While they ardently desire a reunion with East Germany", he said, "it is pretty generally recognized that with the present attitude of the Russians, this is Impossible. ' "The biggest stumbling block now is getting _ together with J'rance on the SnaV and this probably will necessitate concessions from the French and Germans. Neither is anxious to concede anything inasmuch as public sentiment is strong on both sides. "I received the impression that France is much more afraid of Germany than Russia and views any moves for the rearming ol Germany with much dread." "No oile is enthusiastic in Europe about rearming." Austria Calls For Elections VIENNA, - Austria HV—Austria's two government coalition parties have decided to call for new parliamentary elections next April 28. The decision of the Conservative People's party and the left-of-center Social Democrats must be approved by Parliament, in which the coalition holds 144 of the 165 lower house seats. The last elections were held In October, 1949. Observers expect the coalition to win a new majority In the voting. Group to Study Improvements To State Industrial Schools LITTLE ROCK (/Pj—Recommendation: for improving conditions at the state's four training schools fas to be presented the Arkansas Legislative Council today by a fed- :ral specialist oh juvenile delinquency. Richard CLendenen, chief of the Juvenile Delinquency Branch of the federal security Agcscy. recently completed a 3-week spot «tudy of the state training school program. It was made at the request of the Council. Clendenen yesterday criticized the state Negro Boys Industrial School, saying "there is virtually nothing offere^ there for training except In limited agricultural pursuits. "The emphasis Is on production— on the production of cash crops." Clendenen said the schools for white girls and white < boys have "shown steady improvement." The state also operates a school for Negro girls. Clendenen said his recommendations will deal with supervision after Inmates leave the schools; fuller use of existing state facllites, and POSTURE PERFECT-H would lake more than "Eight Iron Men," in which Mary Castle stars, to deny her the title of "Mia Curvc-X." According to cponsors of Better Poslurt Week I perfect posture will giv* «nj' jou ttuy'i Ihe addition or certain services lacking at all the schools—particularly mental and aptitude tests. He said Arkansas had' few problems in its training school program that money wouldn'fcure. but added that some improvements could be made without additional funds. Although some snakes seem to be Immune to their own venom, this Is not always the case. Curtain Falls on Peepers ANDOVER. Mass., Oct. 16 (/»>)— A legal curtain came down today on peeping Toms.
