1*5 Fage Six Underground Forces at Work Against Russian-Dominated Government of Poland &y J. M. ROBERTS, JR. \P Foreign Affairs Analyst (Substituting for MacKenzie) Something very like the wartime French underground campaign against the Germans is going on now in Moscow-dominated '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 10 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 arfny which bought the Germans. The government claims they are supported irom outside by the Poles who joined the Allied forces in Europe. The necessary secrecy surrounding the guerrilla bands also seems to have at tlO-PI STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS /Fog Dispeller Presents 'Ponce of Flames') Monday, December 16. 1946^ tracted brigand anti-Semitic forces. and purely LlgCltlll AW A VV-*J. The underground is reported to have killed 15,000 politicians, security police, Russians ar.d 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 be- fcause 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, tander ; inflamed bronchM mucous membranes.

CREOMULSKON for Coughs, Chest Colds, Bronchitis the support publicly, by the major underground groups, especially the NSZ (National Armed Forces) headed by Vice Premier Miko 1-aczyk. The NSZ takes the position — or at 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 patriotism 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 Entire Blame for the Chaos in Manchuria Is Laid on Soviet Russia's Doorstep *?^ . i Orient. She is the logical "monl« %,t°n Stable China and r.China in which Ihc Communists en ex- panel their sphere of control tut two different things. Pnuley » report does everything but sny 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 •casons" for stripping Manchuria of its industry seems to imply that Vloscow has been contributing to the continuance of unsettled conditions in China to give the Comma nists there a better opportunity. It was obvious immediately aftei the end of the Japanese war that if the Red Army was not lending direct aid to the Chinese Communists, 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 nil that it should be, ncv crlhclcss has been striving to ar range 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 stnn oward compromise settlement of some of China's major woes. It was not considered unnatural that the Russians should let the Chinese Communists fill the vacuum created by the defeat of the Japanese and their own subsequent retirement. And while there was unhappincss among tile Allies that the Soviet should take as "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 to Russia's border and her Mongolian interests. But now Pauley, President Truman's reparations investigator, points up the situation in a different light. "The chaos caused (in Manchuria) by the Soviets", his report says, "has produced a condition of instability both politically and economically which will take a long ur Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex.

The military, under the slate of ^iege, has full authority to seal any publication it considers harm- ul to the security or tranquility of .he public. The state of siege, already in force here for three years, recently was. renewed for another six months. The two new political parties, branches of which were outlawed in the stale of siege zone, were the Workers and Peasants Socialist party and the Turkish Socialist party. Suspended indefinitely by the army were the political magazines Sendika, Ses, Gun, Yigin, Dost and the Amercian newspaper Npraor, all of which.were accused in -the communique of "propagating opinions" of groups affiliated with the two outlawed political party branches. Informed sources said a military court already had begun an in vestigation and would examine all seized documents. The importance the government .apparently placed on the army's action was reflected by the fact the communique was broadcast by the official radio in Ankara.

CARPENTER Lake Success, N. Y., Dec. 17 — (fP) —The United States and Great Britain formally called upon xhe United Nations atomic energy com' mission today to approve me United States plan for narnessmg the atom ior peace. Bernard M. Baruch led off with proposal that the commission ap- rove now his plan for outlawing: tomic weapons and -using tne torn for peaceful purposes. Six Alexander Cadogan, British elegate, quicKly seconded Baruch. nd asked that the American prin- iples be incorporated in tne report hat the commission must make to he United Nations Security Council. ..;••In a brief speech to the full , meeting of the • commission, Baruch said that the question had been debated long enough and tnat the time lor action haa come. Baruch, the United.States representative of the atomic enei-gy commission, came to 'the meeting; • with the determination to push j.or a decision as soon as possible. The commission is considering policy for its political committee u> loUow in draiting the recommendations section of a report the commission must make to the United Nations security council oy Dec. 3i. 'Emphasizing that the United States stood iirm 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 enough." He said that the debates on arms limitations in the United.Na- tions General Assembly and ihe M. Molo- Theodore G. Bilbo, D., Miss., testi- ied that the Mississippi corrupt practices act is worthless as a imit oti campaign expenditures. Sen. Homer Ferguson, R., Mich., charged that if Jackson's interpretation 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 from war contractors whom he nelped get government jobs. The committee' .questioned Jack- son'about $25,000 which F: T. Newton, a-'contractor, •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 tjie corrupt practices act of Mississippi by collecting more than can legally be spent tor,any. one campaign?" Ferguson asked. . •: Jackson said that under the act any. single 'committee can. spend tov, Soviet Russian foreign minister, and Ernest Bcviri, Britain's foreign secretary had covered much of the. ground on atomic matters. ueferring to Secretary of 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 that abstractions have .been debated, and it is now up to us — the atomic commission — to present an im-mediate, a practical and a realis-' tic program." . .. ,, v v . Apparently referring' to the" -lop'-' NJI priority given the atomic problem '• by the general assembly is its resi' olution on arms limitation Baruch said: "We have accepted the duly and we must proceed promptly LO its fulfillment we' believe, and outwork follows this belief, that the best way of gaining our objective is to do first • things first.

"I don't think it is any good," Tac'kson replied. "It's like the .iatch act." Jackson said that $11,000 of the noney for the Doxey campaign was .urned over to Cecil Travis, a fackson, Miss., attorney, as part )f an arrangement to swing behind Doxey the political organization of former Rep~ Ross Collins. Jackson said he understood that J7.500 was to defray expenses Travis incurred while operating Held forces for Collins in the first VUssissippi Democratic primary in 942, The remaining $3,500, Jackon said he understood, was for xpenses of the field forces work- ng for Doxey in' the run-off pri- nary. Collins had testified that he had o part in the arrangement and hat he had no deficit after the irst primary in which he was elim- nated from the Senate race. Travis had testified that the en- ire $11,000 was spent for the Ooxey campaign in the run-off. Committee Counsel George Vleader suggested to Jackson that f Travis told Bilbo's lawyer he lad a $7,500 deficit and told the ommittee later that the entire amount was spent on the Doxey campaign, he had made "a false atement." "I think so, yes sir," Jackson replied. Another witness scheduled to appear before the committee was the >astor of a Baptist church promoted by Bilbo as a family memorial. The witness was the Rev. D. Wade Smith of the Juniper Grove Baptist church at Poplarville, lem, the others will come easier." The American proposal, stressing international controls and inspections, \yas turned down flatly by Adrei A. Gromyko of Russia last summer. During the recent general assembly sessions, however, Soviet Foreign Minister, ,V. M. Molotov agreed to international inspections and controls, which would 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. Gromyko's original resolution, also put before the commission last summer, would ban atomic weapons and leave control and punishment to the individual nations. Baruch, convinced of the "imperative necessity for speed," has prodded the commission continually and now points to the fact that the body must report to the parent security councij by Dec. 31. Baruch's resolution calls ior a strong international system of control of atomic energy established and defined by .a treaty. This treaty (convention) would set up an international authority with full- powers of inspection and control oj 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. There are a series of sharp differences beween the United States and Russian plans, but observers generally agreed that the interna* tional inspection barrier apparently removed by Molotov was the biggest one, The other U. N. body currently active — the security council — Miss. Bilbo solicited i'unds for the project, which includes an unused ;our-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 vhat they contributed at least $7,605. One of them said the church and parsonage couldn't be duplicated for less than $100,000. The committee heard testimony that there are weekly services in the church but the parsonage is unoccupied because it isn't finished. James . Ethridge, 'prmer manager of Bilbo's adjoining farm, said the parsonage still needs electrical work and plumbing. But Robert . Ladner, a hardware dealer, testified that he sold Bilbo four bath tubs to go into the parsonage. He was one of the few witnesses during the first Sour days of testimony who didn't claim that Bilbo owed him some money for a loan or services rendered. Most of the contractors said they contributed to the parsonage Continued on Page Two yesterday heard representatives ot Bulgaria, Albania and Yugoslavia, join in a demand that the council investigate conditions inside Greece. After hearing all the charges and counter-charges, the council recessed until Wednesday morning, when it will begin general debate. . DELAYED CAMPAIGN Kelchikan, Alaska, Dec. 17 —tfP) —Ross E. Kimball, running 'for territorial labor commissioner as an independent, mailed out his campaign literature last September 13 at Fairbanks. He finished a poor third, however, in the October 8 general election, receiving a light vote in southeastern Alaska. Today he found a possible reason for the light balloting. The relief ship Grommet Reefer arrived in this southeastern town from western and interior Alaska bringing mail long delayed because of a maritime strike. It included Kimball's campaign literature mailed last September. Almost half of the 650,000 fires in the United States each year occur in private dwellings.
