BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS Acheson Rejects Soviet Plan for Unified Germany Plight of Germans Blamed on Russia's Postwar Actions WASHINGTON. Oct. 25. (AP) _ Secretary of Slate Acheson turned down today a Soviet bloc proposal (or a new big power effort to cs- lablisli a jingle German government. The proposal was made Saturday following a two-day conference at Prague of Russian Deputy Premier V. M. Molotov and foreign ministers of seven satellite nations. Acheson in a statement blamed Germany's plight on Russia's posl- war actions. The proposals made at Prague, he said, -should be directed to the government of the Soviet Union." Russia. h« declared, could make the postwar Potsdam agreement, "one hundred per cent complete In Germany by taking Ihe required steps in the Soviet zone." ''The lime has long since passed when the world can be stirred to hope by general phrases from the Soviet Union about disarmament and peace and German unity," Acheson sold. Want Actlonc "We who have striven so hard want actions—we want the threatening East German army disbanded, Ihe capricious restraints on internal German trade removed, and free democratic elections held in all Germany. "We want an end to threats such as that utiered by the Communist Ulbricht. deputy head of the East German regime, on August 3. when he declared that the government of tlie federal republic would share what he hoped was going to be the late of the Republic of Korea." Acheson gave reporters at a news conference a 900-word statement which look up and dismissed one by on«, the proposals advanced at Prague. The statement concluded: "We will always hope /or and welcome tangible proof that Soviet Intentions have changed. The Prague statement give* us no such proof. Instead it abuses by its perversion of language and the world's hope for peace «nd understanding, -for an end lo fear and threats. Against that abuse I raise a sol- ffnn protest." x Daring Robber Walks Off with Hospital Cash Blythevlll* polic. were combing the city today in search for the well-dressed robber who walked boldly into the office o( the Blytheville Hospital Ilils morning ind walked oul with Kveral hundred dollars while i number of hospital visitors looked on. ~~ " * Tlie robbery occurred around 9 ARKANSAS, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER IKS, I960 4,839,436 Boles From 1950 Crop Ginned by Oct. 17 WASHINGTON.

U.5. to Fight Red Refusal to Sign Justici Department Starts Work to Force Commies to Register WASHINGTON. Oct. 2S. UP)—The Justice Department, currently rounding up alien Communist leaders for deportation, squared away lodny for a fight to register Ihe Communist Party as » "foreign- dominated" group. It expects a prolonged and bitter battle.

'' And if the board after the^ hearings orders Ihe party lo register, it may then appeal to tlie courts The trial of the 11 consumed nin- fllll months of 1949. and llmt case Is still going through the appeals process, more than a year, later. Based on the "subversive" list maintained by the attorney general, there are some 100 organizations and groups in the country which he regards as communist or communist controlled. Since none stepped up to supply the private operating data during the 30 days allowed by the new Internal Security Act for voluntary disclosure, the assumption is that the long-drawn-out enlorce- mcnt procedure will have to be Invoked against, each in turn, starting with the Communist Parly. The department's drive lo get some B6 alleged foreign Communist leaders into custody and then out of the country meanwhile went forward in a dozen cities. The roundup, like the registration process, was started under the new security act. which permits extended detention of aliens cited for deportation and also provides prisonmenl for any who "willfully" remain ' order. o'clock this morning while Ihe hos. pllal was humming with activity.

He entered the office from Ihe waiting room where he was sitting. There were several persons sitting in the waiting room of the hospital which is located directly across the hall from the glass-enclosed oflicc, anil practically all of them saw the man enter and leave the office, Mrs. Simmons said. Two of the persons in the wailing room look off in pursuit of the man after [hey had realized what had happened. Mrs. Simmons said, but the robber had already made good his getaway.
