(AP)-Kast Germany Is to have its regimented youtl i a nil a 11 - powe rf»1 G es t a po, just like in the days of Hitler. With an unquestioning raise of hands the Communist-com rolled Volk.skamnier (People's Chamber) | ye.sterday passed two laws whk'h appear to roll the calendar back to 1933. One bill creates a new Ministry Of State Security to direct a special secret police force outside the Ministry of Interior, his political force Is to have unlimited authority Ui arrest and imprison ai*y saspecied ; "enemy agent. 1 ?, .spies and saboteur*." , The other law virtually forces i some 3.000.000 youth In the Soviet Zone of Germany to become members of tiie FDJ—the Free German Youth. They must Join if they want to participate in even the most ordinary every-dny activities, including sport-s .certain school work and the choice of profession. Betrayal Encouraged By the language of tlic law, the tree German youth becomes a potential gigantic home spy ring much like the Hitler Jtigend In which boy.s and girls were encouraged to betray even their parents if they were anU-Nazi. There was nothing but acclaim and approval hi the rubber stamp People's Chamber, the legislative body for the Ru.ssian-backed regime, after Deputy Prime Minister Walter Ulbrlcht said the youth organization would have n-s its "sacred duty" the "deepening of Soviet- Gevman friendship and anti-American ism." The new police bin was introduced by East Germany's interior Minister Kar! Stcinhoff. who said it was nece.ssary because "enemy American agents" had threatened peace and order in the Soviet ?.one. The force, modeled after Russia's own secret police, the MVD, may embrace a vast network of informers similar to that of Hitler's Gestapo. As th« bill* were passed, German sources were reporting an intensified purge among East German minority party leaders accused Of falling to cooperte ' sufficiently urith the Communists. Officials Ousl*d Members of the Christian Democrat and Liberal Democrat parties who held public poste In Saxony, Bradenburg and Sachen-Anhalt are •aid to have been ousted and other key members arrested. ' At the same time the Red Army newspaper Taegliche - Rundschau reported that 127 East German •gents of "American imperialists" had been caught in. acts of sabotage. This report has been termed by Western officials a Soviet smokescreen to hide discontent in the east German Zone. , Political teasion in divided Ber- Un was accentuated yesterday when Socialists staged an anti-Communist m!Iy in West Berlin, just at the •border of the Russian sector. A crowd of S.OOO, including many from, the Eastern sector just across the itreet, attended despite snow »nd biting cold to hear West Berlin's Mayor Ernst Renter declare tnat Communism would never win here. Dewey Attacks Democrat Ideas On U.S. Politics PRINCETON. N. J., Feb. 9—07V- Gov. Thomas K We wry of New York ays the Democrats have "trJcci to divide the country on economic and class lines" and the policy will Icail to disaster for the nation. Dewey al-so said that reallsnmeul of the Democratic and Repnn]ir:)]t ParUes "would result in a one-party system and finally totiillnrlan government." The 1948 pre.sidentEal candidate last night delivered the first «f four lectures on "llic Ainerlean Political SysU'in" at the Wood row Wilson School of Pnhlic and In- leniaLiuiinl Affairs of Princeton UniversJl-y. Dewey .-said "Impractical theorists wtih a '|jass!on for neatness' demand that our pnriles be sharply divided one a gainst the 'other, In 1 nicest, rntMiibcshlu and doc tine. "They want to drive alt moderates and liberals out of the Republican Parly and then have the remainder join forces with the ron- scrvntivc groups of the south. The Democratic Party would he. the liberal-to-rnclfcfll party. The Republican party would be tiie conscrvii- live-to-reactlonary party." Police Use Tear Gas To .Capture Veteran PATKRSON, N. J., Feb. 9—f/P]— Pollre used tear gas yesterday (o capture a deranged veteran who barricaded himself In his apartment and shot off bullets by frying them in a skillet. Police siud the 26-year-old man had held them at bay by threatening to shoot anyone who came hi. When they got in, they said, the veteran was found with both arms slashed and bleeding. The man. Identified a.s David Hicham, needed 50 stitches to close cuts on his arms. The cuts were not serious, doctors .said. Police captured Hlgham by climbing a fire escape across an inner court from his apartment mid loss- Ing tear gas bombs through his window. But when they searched the apartment, there was no gun, despite Kigham's threats to shoot. He told! police he had shot off bullets by putting them in a frying pan on the stove and heating them up. Police hearing bullets, thought Higham had a gun. are no big names in the cast. The leading man i.s George Dolenz, onetime Hssistant manager of Ciro's night club, who played minor roles Ui several B pictures. A Hughes pres agent, was bemoaning this lack oi names one day, saying it would be a difficult Him to publicize. Said Hughes: "I don't see why. It's a picture with all new faces. " The pres agent finally had to agree that Hughes was right. All of M.s films have siii-ee.ssfiUly brought new faces to the screen.
