Italy and France, the demonstrations will be dealt with by the police and handled as strictly jmerr.s! matters The prospects ; 6 7s excellent for a few cracked toads but probably no international incidents Tae real danger spot is Ger'.- and the core of it is the divided city of Berlin. There, East Berliners are being urged by the Russians into massive demonstrations^ against the Western peace contract, and three days of hysteria could result in a real international incident In fact, therein lies the possibility of just such an incident as Western leaders have feared—that Russia, by under or over-estimating Western intent, could trigger off a major conflict by accident. Any attempt by Communist-led East Berliners to take over West Berlin by force could be the firing pen. It is obvious that Russia will take every step short of a major conflict to sabotage any German alliance with the remainder of Western Europe- It might be she even would risk touching off a German civil war. . During the three big days, Western eyes, of necessity, must be on a number of points at once. For example, French Communists plan as unfriendly a reception as possible for Ridgeway. Paris police are concerned enough about it to assign 15,000 men to smash the hostile demonstrations. Greeting Ridgway will be such epithets as "Korean War Criminal" and "Germ Killer." [40,000 Aliens Turned Back Monthly ? WASHINGTON -'L'.P)— The U. S. border psrtol is turning back ille- fgal aliens, trying to enter this counter/ from Mexico and Canada, at a I rate : of more than 40,000 a month, 1 immigration officials said today. \Vhilethe problem is most acute 'jrg' the Mexican border, offici- ls'said, "many thousands" of il:al alien- have been caught Ir.eaking acres from Canada in ent months. Reports from the border patrol Indicate'a' "sharp increase" in II- tlegal crossings around Detroit and the east The aliens are attracted to this ountry in many cases by job opportunities outlined in the want ad oiuffiRs' of U. S. newspapers. Many of these are Europeans rlio immigrated to Canada when unable to get into the United States directly. They hope to eventually get into this country un,der regular quotas for their homelands. The Justice Department is seeking greater appropriations from Congress to hire new immigration agents along the Mexican border. When asked by a Congressional committee recently what the result would be if the patrol of that border were dropped. Assistant Immigration Commissioner W. F. Kelly replied: "Weli. it has been borne out by expressions of opinion of the Mexican officials that in a few months' time we would have half of their labor force in the United States, labor of all categories." It will be a minor test of strength for the French Communists who plan demonstrations in all major cities. The fact^tnat Ridgway's arrival m Europe "coincides with the Italian elections may prove a blessing to Italian police. Italian law prohibits political demonstrations on election day or the two days preceding. Yogi Pair Never Heard Of Marijuana BROWNSVILLE—(U.E)— Two self- styled Yogi practitioners who preferred to be called "Ahmed Rasool" and "AH Yosuf A1-A1 Baran" said they had no idea where a bag of marijuana customers agents found in their car came from.

Allred did not sentence them immediately. Customs agents said when the pair was arested March 3, a bag of Marijuana dropped out of their automobile. The men complained to officers that the "vibrations" were wrong, something which seemed to have a bearing on their bein<" arrested. HOBBY CARRIES OX JACKSON, Miss.

Gen. Lewis A. Pick, chief of U. S. Army Engineers, has accented an invitation to be principal speaker at the annual fish fry at Fort Anahuac park on Saturday, June 21. it was announced today by Guy C. Jackson, Jr., secretary of the sponsoring Fraternity of the White Heron. This acceptance by one of the world's outstanding engineers —a man who has personally inspected the master Trinity valley development project—was enthusiastically received by E. W. McLendon of Liberty, president of the Trinity Valley association, cosponsor of the fish fry. He and Jackson freely predicted that 'the 1952 crowd will reach 5,000. More than 4,000 attended in 1951. , Fish fry committee chairmen gathered in Anahuac last Wednesday night to map" .plans for the biggest event of its kind in Texas. * Improved facilities of all kinds will make it easier than ever before for thousands of men, women and children to come by boat, plane or car. Dozens of boats, large and small, can be accommodated at better and more permanent docks that are being planned. Last year more than 15 bpats jammed in?o the limited docking area just a few hundred yards from Fort Anahuac park. New airport facilities are being fmade available, and car-parking areas have been enlarged and streamlined. Rest-room accommodations »will be much improved over 1951. At least 5,000 pounds of Trinity river catfish will be the chief item on the tantalizing menu. Anahuac Division of the American Rice Growesr Cooperatice Association will furnish the jambalaya again this year. AH the "trimmings" of past years will be on all plates, and coffee will be unlimited. Soft drinks will also'be offered on the grounds, the American Legion Auxiliary of Anahuac having this concession. Articles manufactured in Chambers county or Liberty county may be sold on the grounds, it was decided, but all outside salesmen and concessionaries are forbidden, as in • the past. Letters of invitation to the 5,000- plus.rnembers of the fraternity in 23 states-and several foreign coun- tries are being mailed this week. Fish tickets, membership cards and souvenir White Heron ribbons are attached to the letters. Each member la requested to return his $1 membership .fee immediately. This method of sending fish tickets in advance, begun Jast year, eliminated the long lines of registrants. AH tickets will be $1 this year, the 50-cent child's ticket having been eliminated. The American Legion band of Houston has been invited for a return engagement. Top talent from Liberty and Chambers counties will entertain throughout the program. Political speeches will be forbidden, as in the past, but candidates are invited to join in the day's festivities. Each candidate will be recognized by the master of cere- "monies.
