K> „ A 2 f Page Six HOPE STAR/ HOPE, ARKANSAS Monday, December 16, Underground Forces at Work Against Russian-Dominated Government of Poland ®- 6y J. M. ROBERTS, JR. AP Foreign Affairs Analyst (Substituting for MacKenzie) Something very like the wartime Frencn underground campaign against the Germans is going on now in Moscow-dominat- ed'Poland. Although the government controls the country's resources and major arms supplies, widespread guerrilla warfare .heavy casualties, the number of troops involved and overflowing jails indicate a movement of sufficient size \o suggest the possibility of civil war. The government itself estimates it holds 10,000 political prisoners. Heightened pre-election activity by security police and military courts increases the number daily. Underground bands are increasing their atacks on villages, state institutions and government officials. The bands apparently consist largely of members of the old underground army which Sought the, Germans. The government claims they are supported u-om outside by the Poles who joined the Allied forces in Europe. The necessary secrecy surrounding the guerrilla bands also seems to have attracted anti-Semitic and purely brigand forces. The underground is reported to have killed 15,000 politicians, security police, Russians and plain "civilians since the Communist government came to power. The militia alone admits loss of 2,000 killed and 4,300 wounded in fights with the guerrillas, of whom they claim to have killed 2.000. The government has had to use regular army divisions at times to maintain even a semblance of control in some areas. Refugee Poles have predicted that if free elections were held the government would lose, and that if Elections are not free there will be a civil war. The government-harassed Polish Peasant party claims to represent a majority of the people and is' supported, although it repudiates How To Relieve Bronchitis Creomulsion relieves promptly because it goes right to the seat of the trouble to help loosen and. expel germ laden phlegm, and aid nature to soothe and heal raw, tender, inflamed bronchial mucous membranes.

The NSZ takes the position — or al least some of its widely scattered commanders do — that a Pole who fails to support them is in effect supporting a foreign-controlled government, and that his home is subject to the torch and his goods to confiscation. Existence of the underground forces undoubtedly has been used for selfish purposes, just as cheap politicians and common criminals came to hide beneath Ku Klux Klan regalia in the South of reconstruction days, and this has given the government a broader excuse for retaliation than it otherwise might have had. But patriolism seems the main theme. Just what chance the opposition might have of forcing a cnange in the government is problematical. The number of guerrillas and the membership of the Polish Peasant party, taken with the number of citizens who sympathize with them but are afraid to take any active part against the government, must constitute a vast cross-section of Poland. But even in a iree elec tion the result would not be fore gone. The government has instituted economic measures which benefit millions. What the opposition is sure of is that, under the present system of armed government poll-watchers, raids on Polish Peasant party headquarters, arrests of its leaders and interference with its press, the election in January will not be ree. And the government, should completely frustrated opposition esort to civil war, would have be ind it the strength of Soviet Rus ia. \ Like weird dancing figures engulfed in flames, a war-born airport fog dispersal device is pictured/ J being tried out on runways of Landing Aids Experimental Stalion, Arcata, Calif.

Fenwick Thieves Seize MoreJewelry During Fog London, Dec. 14 —(IP) —Fog today dogged Britain for the third straight day, hopelessly snarling traffic, tying up shipping, causing at least three deaths and giving comparatively free rein to thieves and pickpockets. Train and plane schedules were disrupted and motor traffic was at a virtual standstill. Scotland Yard operatives, already hard pressed by a series of new crimes, announced that the Kara was robbed last night of $22,American-born Marquise de Zahara was robbed last night of $22.000 worth of jewels and cash by someone who apparently cut her handbag from its . shoulder strap in Victoria railroad station. The marquise, the former Betty Byrne, widow of a Spanish minister to Paris, was returning irom Paris. The jewels, which included a Russian emerald and diamond brooch and a diamond and ruby bracelet, were bought in the United States, she said, and were gifts from her late husband, a i'ormer counselor of the Spanish embassy in Washington. Police also sought a mysterious "woman in slacks" — believed to be a skilled judge of fur, able to mingle in high society, and endowed with the agility of a trapeze artist — in connection with recent burglaries. The officers disclosed, that a woman's heel print was found outside a bedroom near Bagshot, where Mrs. Irene G. Roberts was robbed Thursday night of ;J32,- 000 in jewelry. It also was understood that there was other evidence that a woman was a member of a gang suspected of a long string of robberies, including the theft last October of $80,000 worth of jewels from the Duke and Duchess 'of gardening ick; Poul- Drawing Cards Windsor.

Puuloy 1 a report does everything but say outright that the Russians are well nwnrc of this. By J. M. ROBERTS, JR. AP Foreign Affairs Analyst Edwin W. Paulcy's report that Russia had "long-range strategic reasons" for stripping Manchuria of its industry seems to imply th.it Moscow has been contributing to the continuance of unsettled conditions in China to give the Communists there a belter opportunity. It was obvious immediately after the end of the Japanese war that, if the Red Army was not lending direct aid to the Chinese Commu nists, it at least was making it easy for them to arm themselves with former enemy materiel. The United States, well aware that the Chiang Kai-shek regime was not all that it should be, nevertheless has been striving to arrange a truce between it and the Communists with the idea that, once both were participating, a central government of some balance would be established as a step Swindle Ends With Month Long Spree Chicago, Dec .14 — (/P)— Inability to win at dice games brought an end to a near month long spree by a Negro charwoman and her boy friend, a federal prosecutor related yesterday in charging the woman with stealing $11,000 from her employer.

The two, Laura Martin, 34, and Arthur Wylie, 38, were arranged before U. S. Commissioner Edwin C. Walker yesterday on charges of •iolating the national stolen property act. The charwoman waived examination and Wylie pleaded in- locenl. Both were held in $5.000 bond for further hearing on Dec. 18. Kelly said Ihat Laura Martin while cleaning Ihe home of her em- oloyer in suburban Western Springs Nov. 16 took $11,000. Then, said, she and Wylie starled on a fling, laking a cab lo Delroil, chartered plant to Little Rock, Ark., and a cab to Hot Springs. Enrpute, Kelly said, Laura bought Wylie a $400 diamond stickpin; a $700 ring; a $750 watch and other items, including a $50 hat, and also gave him $1,500 to pay old gambling debts. Al Hot Springs, Kelly said, Wylie losl $3,900 in dice ga.mes and in efforts to recoup he pawned his newly purchased jewelry and other gifts.

It was not considered unnatural that the Russians should let the Chinese Communists fill the vacuum created by the detent of the Japanese and their own subsequent retirement. And while there was unhappinoss among the Allies that the Soviet should take ns "war booty" the machinery which they were known to need, that, too, was In line with Russian policy elsewhere. So would be a China too weak to represent a threat 1o Russia's border and her Mongolian in- leresls. But now Paulcy, President Tru man's reparations investigator points up the situation in a differ cut light. "The chaos caused (in Manchu ria) by the Soviets", his rcpor says, "has produced a condition of instability both politically and economically which will lake a long time to correct. H left a populace cold, hungry and full of unrest." Those arc conditions under which the world Communists do Ihcir best work. It means as much to them in preparing for their ultimate harvest as do plowing and harrowing to the farmer. With its industrial plants and natural resources, Pauley points out, Manchuria would have been the logical place to being the rehabilitation of China. That was undoubtedly in the minds of Hoose veil and Churchill at Cairo they promised Chiang, long before the defeat of Japan was in sight, that Manchuria would be returned to China. The aren represented the nucleus of a new economic order without which all of China's plans for stable government terribly handicapped.

Its chief, Sta'nley Woodward, says he's been trying to live this idea down for years. "Why I sat next to a man on the streetcar right here in Washington one day who thought the government had a whole division devoting their time just to seating people at table properly," he protests. Strictly speaking, the division's duties are limited to matters of protool and precedence attendant upon a visit of the head of a foreign country to the United Slates. The division makes out the program for the visitor's slay, plans the details of his reception on arrival, gets hotel and transportation reservations, arranges ftir tours, junkets and \vrealh-placings, for interviews with mayors and governors, for police escorts and so on. When the visitor arrives he is met by the secretary of slate or an assistant secretary of state at the railroad stalion or airport and is escorted to the White House, where he is formally received by the president. .The night the president gives a state diner in his honor, and the visitor is put up at the White House. The next clay he moves to Blair House, Uncle Sam's official residence for visiting dignitaries. On Ihe second evening he is entertained at dinner by the secretary of stale. When he leaves the capital and unlil he leaves the country he is accompanied by a member of Ihe Division of Protocol. All of the plans are made in collaboration with the embassy or legation of the country which the visitor represents. The embassy, in turn, advises him in respect to the obligations and duties required of him while he is a visitor. Another duty of the division is to see that all such big shots are advised of the immunities and privileges which this country allows them during their slay and lo see Ihat these are granted them. Under the International Organizations Immunities Act of December, 1945, such visitors are granted immunity from income tax on salaries paid by organizations such as the U. N. for instance. They also get immunity from arrest for actions performed in the line of duty. Woodward, who is tall, slender and handsome with very blue eyes and an easy grace, says the job of his division is coniparable to that of a public relations officer of a big industry — "a tried and true system of American hospitality." "We simply follow the natural laws, as simply as possible and try to keep relations as direct nncl pleasant as we can," he explains. Naturally there are e lot of headaches. About 1,200 representatives of foreign nations live in Washing ton, and 1,200 to 1,500 other repre sentatives are scattered about the country in various consular offices Q Although no woman on recorc has ever visited the Antarctic many (if the reuions around the South Pole are named afle women.

Baruch, the United States representative of the atomic energy commission, came to vhc meeting, with the determination to push ior a decision as soon as possible. The commission is considering policy for its political committee u> lollow in draiting the recommendations section of a report the commission must make to the United Nations security council by Dec. 3i. 'Emphasizing that the United States stood arm on its plan iirst put forward last June 1st, Baruch said: . ."We have no pride of authorship but we can not, in justice to our trust, accept changes in purpose. We have debated long enougn." He said that the debates on arms limitations in the United Nations General Assembly and vhe led that practices 'the Mississippi corrupt act is worthless as a imit on campaign expenditures. Sen. Homer Ferguson, R., Mich., charged that if Jackson's inlerpre- .ation of the law is correct, the aw is "a fraud on the people of Mississippi." Jackson testified before a Senate committee investigating charges that Bilbo accepted gifts !rom war contractors whom he nelped get government jobs. The committee questioned Jack- son'about $25,000 which F; T. Newton, a'.con tractor, 'testified .he gave an informal committee headed by Bilbo and Jackson for the reelection campaign of former Sen. Wall Doxey, D., Miss. ,"How do you get around the corrupt practices act of Mississippi by collecting more lhan can legally be spent for.any one campaign?" Ferguson asked. Jackson said that under-the act any single committee can, spend up to $64,000 in any. one campaign. He said there -is- no limit on .the •number of committees that can be organized. Nor do any groups except the official campaign com- millee have to file returns on receipts and expenditures, he added. "Then what good is the act?" Ferguson asked. 'I don't think it is any good," Molotov, Soviet Russian foreign minister, and Ernest Bevin, Britain's foreign secretary had covered much of the ground on atomic matters. Keferring to Secretary o£. State James F. Byrnes' speech to the assembly, Baruch said that Byrnes had brought the United Nations and the public to a "refreshed,understanding of the fact ihat < abstractions have -been debated, and it is now up to us — the atom- „. ic commission —r to present an im-^ mediate, a practical and a realistic program." ,, .'J Apparently referring' to the ""top- .; priority given the atomic problem , by the general assembly is its res-* olution on arms limitation Baruch'' said: "We have accepted the duty and we must proceed promptly Lo its fulfillment we believe, and our work follows this belief, that the best way of gaining our objective is to do first • things first.

The remaining $3,500, Jack:on said he understood, was for ;xpenses of the field forces work- ng for Doxey in' the run-off pri- nary.

If we are able to solve that.vast problem, the others will come easier." The American proposal, stressing international controls and inspections, was turned down flatly by Adrei A.

Molotov agreed to international inspections and controls, which W9uld operate outside the controversial. veto but within, the framework of the security council. It remained to be seen whether, in the light of the development, Gromyko now would accept the Baruch plan, seek to amend it, or again insist on his own proposal.

The witness was the Rev. D. Wade Smith of the Juniper Grove Baptist church at Poplarville, Miss. Bilbo solicited funds tor the project, which includes an unused iour-bath parsonage, with assurances that it would be "bread cast upon the waters.' ' Seven witnesses, all contractors on army air base work in Mississippi, told the Senate War Investigating subcommittee that they contributed at least $7,605.

This treaty (convention) would set an international authority with fu powers of inspection and control of the treaty regulations. The atomic bomb would be outlawed and the United States would reveal its secrets step by step with the setting up of effecive safeguards.
