FRIDAT, MARCH 4, 1949 BLYTHEVTLLK (ARKT COURIER State Department Gave Indirect Approval of Around-the-W or Id Flight by Big Air Force Bomber Ry Tohn M. HfghloHer WASHINGTON, March 4. W>)-Diplomals loday assigned the inn•top round-the-world (light, of an American uombcr a significant and highly dramatic place In the grand strategy of the cold war. An Important fact in terms of ln- + lei-national politics Is that the State , Department had opportunity to' block the flight but did not do so. Two and a lialf years ago a somewhat similar project was vetoed by the diplomat*. Attitudes Change Thus the changed attitude may be taken as a measure of the extent to which relations between Hlussla and the West have gone downhill. The decline started at the peak of hopes for East-West cooperation In peacemaking. Its present low point Is characterized by the belief of the Western powers that military readiness to strike back Is now an absolute essential of peace. In this sense the B-50 trip which ended Wednesday at port Worth provides a single dramatic Instance. It shows what the United Slates and other Western powers are try- Ing to accomplish on a broader scale and In a different way through the proposed Atlantic security treaty. Top American officials define the purpose of that treaty as being to confront any potential aggressor— by which they currently mean Russia — with such -"overwhelming" force that he would not dare attack. Tn the [light of the B-50 bomber the Soviets can now read unprecedented evidence of the range of American strategic air power. They may reason that no single one of their cities, should war ever come, would be safe. Chairman Tydlngs (D-Md) of the Senate Armed Services Committee commented solemnly: "This flight offers some measure of what another world war would mean to a)l peoples." Avoided Soviet Areas However, the air force was meticulous In laying out Us flight plan for the B-50. It made sure that at no point did the route approach either Russia or Soviet-held areas. The, nearest the B-50 came to Russia was hundreds of miles to the south, when the bomber flew over the subcontinent of India. Assuming that the Atlantic treaty project goes through, the Russians will have further evidence that America's striking power could be provoked Into action not alone by an attack on the United States It could be set off by an attack on any of the other countries in the North Atlantic MHance. So far as the State Department is concerned, the flight apparently wus not made primarily ns a sabre rattling gesture—whatever meaning other countries may attach to it. II seems to have been conceived an effort by the Air Force-—perhaps with an eye on congressional appropriations—to prove that such a thing could be done. But officials confirmed today that the proposal was put before the State Department and It was cleared there. Mofac Blames Business Slump /or Personnel Cut ST. LOUIS, March 4. W)_A business slump is forcing the Missouri Pacific Railroad to lay off 10 to 20 per cent of its employes in repair shops at North Little Rock, Ark., and Sedalia, Mo., me railroad announced. A MoPac spokesman said the railroad hopes the layoffs will be only temporary. He ntti'lbuted part of the decline in business to cold weather damage to perishable crops in the South and West, which has reduced the amount of rolling stock necessary for shipments. At Sedalia, where the shops normally employ about 1,200 workers 53 employes were notified they will be laid off Saturday. Nine Germans Killed, 76 Injured in Train Wreck BERLIN, March 4.
