Then at last we'll be back in that tree economy—that free erv-A terprise—which businessmen have w called for since the v/-ar ended. And right there the great adventure begins.

If so, whit form would those •strong government controls lake? ^ Would they be jus: an all-over V ;ighteriing up wnich. levertheless, x-t free enterprise continue in limited form? Or would it mean socialism? Or Fascism? The possibility o* socialism or fascism in this country seems remote now, perhaps absurd. But no one at this mir.u-.e—when America seems to be entering upon a rich and successful era—car. see how much liberty .and yhe people might be willing to yield ;f they became jobless, hungry and nopeless in depression. 1 In this country free enterprise means freedom—from government dictation.—of business to set its own prices on its goods and labor to bargain for whatever wages it can get for its work- in that way the public :s free to buy, or not to bur. a businessman's goods and. in ordsr ..o sell his goods, he sets prices the public is willing to pay. That's the theory. We have been raised on the tradition that free enterprise, fay free men. has made this country great and will continue to keep it that way. 48TH YEAR: VOL. 48—NO. 6 Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex.

America's Teletype corporation (Chicago) is world-famous for its communication equipment, of which The Star has five units, but this German machine is said to be, superior in some respects lo Ihe American product. Our American machines bperatc on the principle of an electrical impulse activating a separate printing key for each letter. In case of interference ,oh the wire, or slalic in the air, the impulse may be distorted and the wrong letter printed. Bul the German machine prints vertical and horizontal lines to form each leller—virtually drawing Ihe letter as you would with a pencil. Any interference or static, instead of printing the wrong word, merely changes the shape of a letter. The advantage for accuracy is enormous. The German machine has o.ne great disadvantage, however: It can handle only 150 letters a minute. Allowing give letters to the word that is only 30 words a min- ulc. The Slar's machines receive 53 words a minute, and some U.S. units can handle 100 a minute. * * * By JAMES THRASHER Clash of Atomic Opinions In his speech before the United Nations Atomic Energy .Commission in June, Bernard M.

Development) Authority shall be in for a first, possession of full information as to the know - how for the production of atomic energy." This seems to Slate clearly thai this cc.untry would participate in the Baruch plan for atomic energy control. Yet it must be ambiguous. For tho recent conference o: pro- grcssivcs in Chicago has seen in it a requirement "that other nations accept binding agreement not to conduct research into the military uses of atomic energy and to disclose their uranium and thorium resourses while the United States retains its; technical knowledge and engineering freedom, until the international system is working to our satisfaction." That position implies that we are the only nation that has eonduclcd or is conducting atomic research along military lines. U implies that, although a party to the atomic energy treaty, this cquntry would not disclose its uranium and thorium resources. It implies thai other countries would lose whatever technical knowledge and engineering freedom llmy may have, while we should retain ours. Such an interpretation of the Baruch plan seems less a criticism of the plan ilsclf than a dc.ubt of our government's good intentions of living up to its agreements. The progressives' resolution on atomic energy also slalcs: "It is not enough to ask other nations to be good, with a promise that at some time, undefined, we may be good loo." That appears to be a deliberate and undeserved slap at Mr. Baruch which is not borne out by the facts in the case. The basic difference between the thinking represented by the Chicago, progressives and by those favoring the Baruch plan is whether we shall destroy our stock in atomic bombs before or after an inter- pand details of our atomic bo.mb national control system is set up and details of our alomic bomb manufacture arc made known. The first group feels that to delay the destruction of the bombs would be to give a green light to all - out international production for atomic war. Bul since this co- unlry would agree, with other co- untrics, to renounce atomic explosives as a weapon before the bombs wcrc deslroyed, the only cause for alarm would be a belief lhat the United States government's word was wo.rthlcss. Destroying our atomic bombs would not destroy our knowledge of how to make them. It would not destroy whatever similar knowledge the scientists of other countries may possess. To release the details of atomic bomb manufacture before a control system were firmly csl- ablished would seem to be more o.C an invitation to an armaments race than the Baruch plan. iod Bell of Hope and Pnrker of Texarkana were ousted from the game following heated words which apparently the referee didn't like.

Probe Ordered in Cotton Drop of $25 Bale Washington, Oct. 10 — (IP)— The Agriculture Department called for an investigation today of a three- day price break which forced cotton down around $25 a bale. The cotton future markets, at New York, Chicago and New Orleans were directed to report ident ity of traders active Wednesday, Thursday and Friday—the days of the break—and the nature and volume of their transactions. Chairman Elmer Thomas (D Okla.), of the Senate Agriculture committee says the break resulted fro'n a "bear" raid on the market. Declining to comment or>. possible causes, Administrator J. M. Mehl of the Commodity exchange act said last night "analysis of trading will bring forth the facts." Meanwhile Thomas renewed assertions that the Agriculture Department has secret plans to buy soon another 1,000,000 bales of cotton for shipment to Germany and Japan. .Officials of the cotton section had told newsmen they knew nothing of a new program, but that 'ihcy were buying some 1,044,000 bales and had shipped two-thirds of it. Last night Thomas issued an other statement insisting that within a few weeks the department will tart buying another million bales o ship for the army. He declared: "During the past year or so the Department of Agriculture has ecu buying' commodities Jor the rmy and other government agen- ••ies on a secret basis in an effort o hold down prices instead of an louncing this buying program in advance and giving all sellers an equal opportuity to submit bids;" In a telegram to Secretary of Agriculture Anderson, Thomas said ic has "positive information" that he cotton exchanges "have ilanncd and arc now executing a arogram to drive cotton prices down to the lowest possible point." The Agriculture Department's weekly cotton market review suggested these causes for the price decline: 1. Speculation over possible dc control of cotton textile prices. 2. Uncertain outlook for sale of cotton textiles. McCellon Attacks Communism As Peace Obstacle Little Rock, Oct. 19 — — Sena- tir John L.

Citizens Denied by Slavs By GRAHAM HOVEY Washington, Oct. 19 —f/P) — The United States and Yugoslavia locked horns today in a bitter diplomatic debate over whether Tito's government has enslaved and caused the death of American citizens. The State Department charged Yugoslavia has thrown at least 165 into concentration camps, rented them out at forced labor without pay, shipped' three to Russia, and permitted maltreatment fatal to as many as 10. The Yugoslav charge d'affairs'in Washington pro.mptly countered with a press statement declaring that "under Yugoslav law, which Is the only relevant law in this matter" the persons concerned arc Yugoslav citizens. The statement denied i'lally that iiny Americans are enslaved, or that slave labor conditions exist in Yugoslavia. The. controversy exploded with an American note delivered in Belgrade yesterday, which asserted that persons having "a valid claim" to American citizenship were being denied their international rights. \ Enlarging on the note, government officials said the American embassy-in Belgrade had furnished details on the slavery charge, adding the fact that those held were of German ancestry. Dr. Sergcijc Makicdo, the Yugoslav charge .d'affaires, conceded that the Tito government is detailing about 110,000 persons "of the German minority in "Yugoslavia," and said this group included "those to whom the State Department referred in its press release." But these persons had belonged to the Yugoslav equivalent of the German-American bund and had ormcd "Hitler's most effective ifth column in Yugoslavia," Ma- kiedo said. He declared that many of them lad joined the German army when t overran Yugoslavia and had 'ornied the Prince Eugen division, 'an SS outfit that was unequalled n the barbarity • with , which it- slaughtered .Yugoslav soldiers; and civilians'-alike:"—. " A: " : ' V: - ^~' :- ' 'Others served as Gestapo agents," he said. Many claiming American citizenship under the laws of this countrv were born in Yugoslavia, returned there "during the depression when they were unable to find work in America," and never gave up Yugoslav citizenship, Makicdo added. Makiedo said Yugoslavia had 15 Injured in Three-Way Crash Near Jonesboro Jonesboro, Oct. 19 —(/P)— Fifteen persons were injured—two seriously—when the Mathis Bus Coach in which they were riding was wrecked on Stale Highway 18 near here yesterday. The bus, a gasoline truck and an automobile collided and plunged nto ditches beside the highway between Jonesboro and Lake City. Two occupants of the car fled nto nearby woods after the accidents and Craighead County Sheriff Leon G. Brown said bloodhounds were put on their trail. He said two other persons in the car were Hitchhikers and remained on scene. the Most seriously injured were the bus driver, Paul Drake, of Blytheville, and Irene Smotherman, Black Oak, both of whom suffered back injuries.

'o — • • •- By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst We arc verging on several im portant international show-downs which at last may give us an answer lo the paramount question of the day: Whether there is a point at which Russia would be willing to compromise on her program of expansion or whether she is bent on driving straight on, let happen what may. This crisis has been boiling up for many months. It marks the arrival of the lime when there must be an all-around spirit of "give" us well as "take" among the major allies if grave consequences arc to be avoided. That, I take it, is the message between the lines of Secretary of State Byrnes' foreign policy broadcast last night. Mrs. Byrnes voiced concern over Iho "continued if not inorcn.sing Iension between us and tho Soviet Union", and made clear tlv.it while America won't expect other na- lions to yield lo all of our demands, on the other hand she won't yield lo all demands of other countries. Our policy is to be "patient but firm", and he urged rejection of the idea that delays in achieving peace "make armed conflict inevitable." Thai's the over-all picture. Specifically the Big Three are up against several major problems which will put the acid lest on their relationships. One of these lies in Moscow's twice staled demand on Turkey for joint defense of the Dardanelles — a proposal which Ankara now has rejected flatly. them in 1932. The -Democrats have had a majority in both houses since 1932. Since a bill must be passed by a majority vole of both houses before it can become law, a Republican house could block anything passed by a Democratic Senate, Or, just the other way around. So a Republican majority in one house could tie President Truman's wishes in knots. A Republican ma- orily in both houses could prelty well run the government show. (Even though Republicans controlled Congress, they might not always vote solidly together. Some might join forces with the 'minority Democrats at 'time- to defeat the Customers Balk 1 -i' 1 At High Prices Asked for Meat By The Associated Press "* ' Only a small supply of fresh meat appeared in most of the nation's butcher shops today but already there were indications many customers weren't going to pay the higher prices being asked for steaks, pork chops, ham and other' cuts. Despite a flood of livestock into markets this week after removal of price controls, packers said 'chat , several more days would be needed to move even a "fair" supply'of \ meat into retail outlets. But there was more meat in the country's butcher shops this weekend tharii for the last several weeks. And at much higher prices. The • American Meat Institute,! 1 representing the country's major packers, urged consumers to "shop around for the best buys" in meat and it appeared many housewives were, heeding the advice. , < From cities across the country came reports'of buyers' resistance to tho- soaring prices asked Zor^ meat.

Indeed on Oclo- jcr 9 Washington delivered a note lo Moscow, reiterating America's opposition to the Russian roposal and advising that Uncle Sam doesn't intend to be squeezed out of a voice in control of tho straits. Turkey is being backed in her stand not only by the United Stales but by Britain. Another phase of the crisis \yill arise in the forthcoming meeting of the Big Four Foreign Ministers in New York to approve (or disapprove! of the peace treaties) adopted by the harassed Paris Peace coiucrcnce. Russia indi cated at the; conclusion of the par- Icy in the French capital that she likely would kick over much of the work done there. The difference hero marks the division between the .Russian-dominated Slavic bloc and the western allies. ACtor that will come an even more delicate proposition — the framing of a peace treaty for Germany. Tho rcioh is the focal point of the upheaval represented in the realignment of the balance of power in Europe. Before the war it was the politico-economic keystone of the continent, and the future oC Europe is wrapped up in the decisions which arc made by Ihe Allios in framing a peace treaty. Those arc of the show-downs which must come soon. And there arc others, not only in Europe bul in the Far East. The trend of thp limes would seem to be rather well illustrated by Washington's sizzling note to Moscow's protege — Yugoslavia. Prices Now Depend on U.S. Pub!ic-OPA By ROGER D. GREENE Washington, Oct'.19 —i/P)—Amer can housewives are now buying food on 90 per cent "free" mar%-ct, the OPA estimated today, and their own thriftiness is the last barrier against runaway prices. They are making headway in the fight 'against inflation, reports indicated. A downward trend in prices was noted in most food and commodity markets after a brief- lived tendency to reach for the skies. In addition, many retail stores were advertising their intention to keep prices down as far as the costs permit. Less than a week after President Truman's action signalling the end of most controls, the OPA calculated thai approximately 35 per cent of the items in the average family basket have been freed from ceilings since last Tuesday. It figured the average budget expended 30.5 per cent on meal, 2 per cent on fats and oils, and 2 per cent on coffee. All those have now been decontrolled. Previously, about 45 per cent of the nation's food items were still under OPA ceilings — thus leaving only 10 per cent in the restricted asked American aid in speeding the transfer of these persons back to Germany, "as provided .Cor in the P ot s d a m agreement," but "there were no replies to these requests." U. S. government officials earlier had indicated that this country is not concerned only with the persons of German descent now in the Yugoslav camps. They said estimates of the number of persons in Yugoslavia regarded by this country as American citizens run from 2,000 to 3,500. They estimated."80 to 90 per cent' would like to return to the United States.

Members of the majority party are always committee chairmen.-Democrats arc. chairmen now. These jobs are. considered plums. They carry prestige and power. The committees are tho backbone of Congress. They, hold hearings on bills, they make investigations. They include those which pass on the amount of money the government needs and committees on veterans and foreign affairs. Besides the committee chairmanships, the Republicans would have a lot of patronage to hand out to Republicans, or friends of Republicans patronage, in this case, means paying-jobs. The people in those jobs now were put there by the Democrats, since they have the majority.

" Tatient But Firm' Policy Toward Any Nation Voiced by U. S. Secretary Byrnes American citizens as slaves and causing the deaths of some of them in horror camps. This is along the lines of Se^veUiry Byrnes' dcscrip- against taking military measures lion of the American policy as be- in Iho waterway "jointly with some ing "patient but firm." Meanwhile, Ihe OPA moved ahead in Us program to junk a great majority of war-time curbs by November 1 — with the notable exception of Ihose on rents, automobiles, refrigerators and building materials. An OPA official said OPA Administrator Paul Porter and his aides were so busy that ihcy decided not to make the usual weekly radio broadcast to the nation's housewives. It was the first time in 15 weeks thai Porter h-id passed up his Saturday radio talk. Other key developments in the decontrol pccture included: 1. Wage controls appeared slaicd for early action. Secretary of the Interior Krug told reporters that President Truman and his cabinet considered freeing wages i're.m control among other things at a 50- minule session ycslcrday. No inkliiig was given of any decision, but presumably Mr. Truman and cabinet members discussed growing demands from some labor and business leaders for immediate action in freeing wages- from control, -2. The Price Decontrol Board announced a slash of about 50 per cent in its slaff. leaving only a "skeleton force" to deal with rapidly ebbing busines. Not a single petition was pending before Uie board today. By ALEX SINGLETON Washington, Oct. 10—W 1 )—Secretary of Slate Byrnes pointed the United Stales along a "patient but firm" foricgn policy course wilh Russia today, declaring that this country will neither yeild to all demands of other nations nor expect them to yield to all of ours. Voicing concern over "Ihe con- tjnucci if not increasing tension between us and the Soviet Uion," Byrnes urged rejection of the thought that delays in achieving peace "make armed conflict inevitable." "It is entirely possible," he said in a radio report last night on ihc Paris conference, "lhat the failure or inability of the Soviet leaders to lid themselves of that relief lies al Ihe very rool of our difficullics." His address, obviously aimed at Moscow as well as his home audience, acknowledged Byrnes' distress over war talk which is "Ihrot- tling tho economic recovery of Europe," but affirmed his hope that a just peace can be attained without one-sided concessions. Byrnes said this nation will stand "irrevocably" behind the "right of every people to organize their economic and. political destiny through the freest possible expression of their collective will." "We oppose privilege at home and abroad," he asserted, "we defend freedom everywhere. And in our view human freedom and human progress are inseparable." He made it plain that his goal is cooperation with the U.S.S.R.—bul not continued concessions. "We must be willing to cooper ale with one another—vela or '.10 veto—to defend, with force if nee cssary, the principles and purposes of the Charter of the United Nations,' 'lie said. An apparent reference to the debate which stormed up over Henri A. Wallace's criticism of the ad ministration's policy toward Rus sia came in Byrnes' delcaration: "In following those policies we havp been criticized at times ioi being loo 'soil' and at limes for jeing too 'tough'. In dislike both orms. Neither describes our earnest efforts to be patient but firm." Wallace commented later: "After islening to the speech of the sec- rclary of slate I am more certain han ever that we must adopt a real American foreign policy. I am glad that he has progressed since his Stutlgnrl speech (warn- 'ng that Germany must be neither pawn or partner 1 in any power struggle between east and west). "I sincerely hope that further progress will be made and that ihc secretary of stale will eventual- y realize that the American people demand justice, good neighbor- iincss and peace in the world." . Byrnes expressed ''bewilderment" al Russian accusations that the United States "enriched itself during the war" and now seeks "to enslave Europe economically. 1 " "Coming from these charges would be regrettable to us," he said. "They arc particularly regrettable when they are made by the Soviet government to whom we advanced mqrc than ten billion dollars of lend lease during the war and wilh whom we want to be friendly in.lime of peace." Byrnes added the United States wants to assist 'in European reconstruction "because we believe that European prosperity will contribute to world prosperity and world peace." He conceded that the peace treaties born of the Paris Conference were "not writlcn as we would wrilc them if we had a free hum!," but s-wl "they arc as good as we can hope to get by general agreement nor or within any reasonable length of lime." Turning to Soviet-dominated Yugoslavia, which wall'cd out of the conference in protest against Yugoslav-Italian boundary decisions, Byrnes said he hoped "after consideration Yugoslavia will realize that just as other stales have made concessions she must make conces- less. Minneapolis: Only male buyers "obviously irked," paid the higher prices in silence, one letailer reported. He said what women said, in refusing to pay.65 cents for pot roast and 75 cents for pork chops was "unprintable. 1 ' t Dallas; A newspaper survey revealed a number of butchers refusing to buy meat. One butcher commented: "All that's needed to bring prices down is just to let that meat hang in the coolers for a , while." San Francisco: Many shops re- , ported a decline in meat sales and said shoppers were quick to com- ' ment that current prices were too high. Supplies increased since removal of controls. Chicago: A guyers' strike against all commodities except tirjse es- ' sential to life was pledged by rep- resentalives of 25 civic, labor and church organizations. A committee has been formed to arrange for "flying squadrons" of housewives , to picket stores whose prices were deemed excessive. Omaha: The president of the city's Retail Meat Dcalers predicted plenty of meat at lower prices by the end of next week and said it was too early to tell whether" a meat buyers' strike was shaping up. ^ •vl lo bring about the peace."
