. Page SI* NOPE S T A R, HOPE, ARKANSAS Wednesday, November 13, 1946 LV' >s i With Good Reason Truman Says Foreign Policy Is National, Not Party Program 1 There are grave problems al- teady waiting in the foreign iield for that cooperation which has been promised between President iTruman and Republican congressional leaders under the new setup resulting from the national elections. , , '. This is the most critical hour in international affairs since war's end. It is with good reason that : the chief executive characterizes the foreign policy as a "national ' and not a party program," ior peace is in the balance. The western world has come to look on Europe as providing tht greatest danger spots —.perhaps because we are close to them — s and there's no doubt about their seriousness. However, don't forget .the Pacific, for the Far East is as full of explosive as ah atomic :bomb, and if fate decrees that we rriust have another war it may borne out of the Orient quite as easily as from the familiar whelping grounds of conflict in Europe ... One of the delicate questions revolves about the American proposal to place Japanese-mandated islands and other former enemy islands under a United Nations trusteeship with the United. States ds the administering authority. Indications from Moscow are that - Russia will reject this proposition. The official Soviet news agency, Tass, refers to it as a "United States atempt to make a huge part' of the Pacific with a huge ft number of islands its own stra- ** tegic zone which may be bound Up,with plans preparing for future War." The allegation gives us the key- Have Your Prescriptions filled CRESCENT'S Follow your 'doctor's prescription exactly, as to amount and frequency pf • dosage. Some times even a slight variation can lessen the patient's chances for rapid recovery. note to this whole involved Asiatic situation which of course comprises far more than the Japanese islands. . For instance, take Korea which is quite as likely to produce war as most any spot you can mention. This country of some 35,000 square miles (a little more than a third bigger than New England) is small I on size but mighty in stratevical value —so much so that it long has been a pawn in the Asiatic game of power politics. Control of Korea was one of the chief causes of the Russo-Japanese war of 19045. as it had been of the Chinese- Russian conflict a decade earlier. Now We find Korea divided in two at the 38th parallel, with Russia in control of the northern portion, and the United States of the south. That 38th parallel is like a Chinese wall to the unhappy country. The north is the industrial part of the state, and the ' south the agricultural. The Russians permit no traffic between the two, and Korea thus is in a bad way. President Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Generalissimo Chiang Kai- shek at a secret meeting in Cairo in November of 1943 agreed that Korea should be made ilree and independent "in due course." But the way things now stand she is looking at independence through the big end of the telescope. All the signs are that the Soviet intends to stay right where she is in Korea, which is a mighty buttress to her great Siberian port of Vladivostok and to the Manchurian ports of Dairen and Port Arthur in which Moscow is vitally interested. Under the thirty-year friendship treaty signed by China and Russia in August, 1945, Dairen was to be a free port, open to all nations, but administered by China. [The great naval base of Port Ar- Says Japanese Rehearsed Pearl Harbor Tokyo, Nov. 12 —(/P)—Sensational statements that Japan rehearsed its Peal Harbor attack five months in advance and that former Ambassador Joseph C. Grew believes three of the 27 top Japanese defendants are innocent were made to the international war crimes court today. An affidavit from Grew, who was interned at the start of the war, said the three "in my opinion were wholly opposed to war and exerted their efforts to avoid war." It startled the courtroom but Sir William Webb, tribunal president, ruled that it could not be introduced by the defense until it opens its case, probably in December. Defense Attorney David F. Smith, New York, told the court "This seems to eliminate three defendants from this case." They are Kiichiro Hiranuma, iormcr prime minister, and Koki Hirota and Mamoru Shigemitsu, former foreign ministers. Meanwhile, the prosecution 346 Arkansans to Receive High Masonic Degrees Little Rock, Nov. 12' —(/P)— Masonic degrees fro m the fourth through the 32nd are being conferred on 346 Arkansans at n Scottish Rite reunion which opened here yesterday for a three dtiy program. Fourth degree candidates were elevated to the 15th degree in yesterday's ceremonies witnessed by an estimated 1,250 person. The candidates were being taken I through degrees from the 16th ' through the .29th today and the final degrees will be conferred at the closing session tomorrow. o Cotton Breaks Under Full Investigation Washington,Nov. 12 —(/P)—Undersecretary of Agriculture N.

Thus th*e only casement of this, "impossible" and highly dangerous position can come through simultaneous withdrawal of both countries after a cut and dried agreement that assures Korea independence. That's a tougher situation even than the Jap islands. o— : Bizarre Deaths to Be Fully Investigated Toms River, N.

Coughlin said, however, the investigation would continue ?n order lq piece togelher full delails of the Dizarre case which began Sept. 27 with the kidnaping of Mrs. Kimmey from her husband's bed at Little Silver, N.

A patch of red dress . spotted from a navy blimp led yesterday to the discovery of the bodies in Lebanon state forest and ended a nation-wide hunt which began : 45 time the so-called "Yamomota plan" for Japan's sneak allack on Pearl Harbor. The testimony, based on a recorded prison-cell intcrrogalion of Adm. Osami Macano, a defendant, last March 21, pictured Emperor Hirohito as figuratively chewing his fingernails in anguish over the prospects of waging a war which might be lost while militarist at the same time hold rchearslas for Ihe sneak altack. Nagano said the plan was rehearsed at Kagoshima bay in July, 1941, with torpedo and dive bombers using aerial torpedoes specially designed for the shallow Pearl Harbor waters.

Dodd told Wickcrsham that if tlie investigation now underway discloses any violations of existing laws the department will take "ap propriate action." "The extremely disorderly conditions which have prevailed in the cotton market in recent weeks are | detrimental alike to producers, merchandisers and processors," Dodd wrote, adding: "If the markets are to perform the useful functions x x x effective safeguards must be set up against repetitions of such disorders." Dodd said that from information thus far obtained, it appeared that for several months prior to the October decline there was "a great volume of speculative activity in the cotton markets, representing widespread trading by persons of moderate or small means scattered throughout the country."

The British'also were understood to be working on a plan to restrict use of Ihc veto. But all delegations agreed that restriction is nly possible through Russian greement. Meanwhile, the Union of South Africa appeared headed ior defeat n her proposal to annex her South frican mandate. But, in the face of this threat, >outh Africa warned yeslerday hal she would administer the for- nor German colony as an integral iarl of Ihe union if annexation Jin- illy failed. Soviet Russia pointed up the issue with a demand that all former ,eague of Nations mandates be ml under Ihc proposed U. N. trusteeship system and specifically charged South Africa with violat- ng Ihe U. N. charier by not sub- nilting a trusteeship agreement. Field Marshal Jan Christiaan Smuls, 76Tycar-old prime minister of the Union, said it would be impossible to submit a trusteeship agreement in conflict with the "clearly expressed wishes of We inhabitants" of Southwest Africa : or annexation.

Sccrtlary General Trygvc Lie, Albania registered a "strong protest" with ihc United Nations against an alleged American demand thai U. S. warships be permitted to enter Albanian waters to remove the American diplomatic mission from lhal country. Tile protest, which also contained representations against Great Britain for attempting a mine-sweeping job in Corfu channel, was filed by Gen. Col. Enver Hoxha, president of Albania. Meanwhile, authoritative sources disclosed thai the Unilcd States black market trading. Several of the men seized were not registered inmates of the camp, and UNRRA officials said there no doubt were "several hundred" more unregistered residents. Twenty or more unlicensed or "qucslionablc" aulomobiles and Irucks were impounded. One displaced person, who had escaped from the Frankfurt jail, was recaptured. One of the black marketers, whose name \yas withheld until his accomplices in other cities have been arrested, was awakened in a room he shared with two women. One of the eight men' arrested was Moses "Motek" Feldenstein, one of the major "targels" of Ihe raid. An army secret agenl reported thai Feldenstein telephoned an accomplice at Munich several times daily to discuss business deals ranging as high as 2,000,000-(M) marks. He said Feldenstein once mentioned watches in lots of more than 1,000.

Rankin (D-Miss) -of "Gestapo" ladies today afler Rankin had threatened him with a contempt action. Rankin summoned Shapely before him for a closed-door hearing of the House Committee on Un- American Activites, of which Rankin is acling chairman. No olher committee members were present and Shapely later issued a statement declaring that Rankin: "Forcibly seized^ a prepared statement from him and tore it. Refused to permit Shapley's attorney, Thomas H. Eliot, or his secretary, Miss Nelly Thomas, to remain in the room. Eliot described the seizure of Shapley's statement as "technical assault." Rankin told reporters he had 'never seen a witness treat a committee with more contempt," declaring the witness had refused to answer questions or produce subpoenaed documents. Eliot told reporters the Harvard professor was called on to produce records of four organizalions, including the CIO-PAC and the National Citizens Political Action Commitlee. Shapley is not a member of either PAC group, Eliot said, and therefore did not bring any records. The scientist, protesting against what he called "the star-chamber methods of the Gestapo used by Rankin." described the subpoena as 'a flagrant fishing expedition." Eliot said that before last week's election, Commitlee Counsel Ernie Adamson went to Massachusetts and asked Shapley about campaign contiibulions and aclivitics of the four organizalions in connection with the election contest between Bonier County Circuit Clerk John j R 0 p.
