ARKANSAS Monday, December 16, 1946^ Underground Forces at Work Against Russian-Dominated Government of Poland fey J. M. ROBERTS, JR. AP Foreign Affairs Analyst .(Substituting for MacKenzie) Something very like the wartime French underground oam- tiaign 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 vo 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 largelv of members of the old underground army which fought 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- and purely the support publicly, by the major underground groups, especially the NSZ (National Armed Forces) headed by Vice Premier Miko tracted brigand anti-Semitic forces. L-lgctuu iuiv-co. The underground is reported to have killed 15,000 politicians, se- 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 eoods 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 Poland. But even in a free elec- f- U1CIHV1. J-J W fc V- » \- «. i •!»» « .v» *. N» — - — — tion the result would not be fore- ernment came to power. The militia alone admits loss of 2,000 killed and 4,300 wounded in lights with gone. The government ed economic measures fit millions. . What the opposition is sure of is that, under the present system of to have killed 2,000. The govern ment 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 lhat ;f elections are not free there will be a civil war. The government-harassed Polish i _. , Peasant party claims to represent V*llluS a majority of the people and is supported, although it repudiates raids on Polish Peasant party headquarters, arrests of its leaders and interference with its press, the election in January will not be free. And the government, should a completely frustrated opposition resort to civil war, would have behind it the strength of sia. -Q Soviet Rus- How To Relieve Bronchiti Happy Home i Club met at the home of Mrs. Bill | Rosenbaum December 6th.

Pnuley s ic- porl does everything but say outright that the Russians arc weu aware 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 thai Moscow has been contribuling to the continuance of unsettled conditions in China to give the Communists there a better opportunity. It was obvious immediately after the end of the Japanese war th.it if the Red Army was not lending direct nid to the Chinese Communists, it at least was making 11 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, ncv crthelcss has been striving to ar range a truce between it and th Communists with the idea that once both were participating, central government of some ba oward compromise settlement of ome of China's major woes. It was not considered unnatural hat 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 the Allies that the Soviet should take as "war booty" the machinery which they i were known to need, thai, loo, was in lino with Russian policy else- 1 where. So would be a China too weak to represent a threat 1o Russia's border and her Mongolian interests. But now Pauloy, President Truman's reparations investigator, points up the situation in a different light.

Bernard M. Baruch led off with proposal mat the commission ap- rove now his plan for outlawing tomic weapons and -using tne torn for peaceful purposes. Six Alexander Cadogan, British delegate, quicKiy seconded Baiuch and asued that the American prin- iples.be incorporated in tne report hat the commission must make T.O he United Mations 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 had corne. Baruch, the United States representative of the atomic energy commission, came to the meeting with the determination to push lor a decision as soon as possible. The commission is considering policy for its political committee xo lollow in draiung tne recommendations section of a report, the commission must make to the United Nations security council oy Dec. 3i. 'Emphasizing that the United States stood arm on its plan urst 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 cnougn." He said that the debates on arms limitalions in Ihe United Na- Mississippi."

The commitlee -queslioned Jackson aboul $25,000 which F. T. Newton, a:contractor, testified ,he gave an informal commillee, 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 than 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 committee have to file returns on re- :eipls and expendilures, he added. "Then what good is the act?" Ferguson asked. I don't think it is any good," tions General Assembly and ihe speeches of Vyacheslav M. Molotov, Soviet Russian foreign minister, and Ernest Bcvin, Britain's foreign secretary .had covered much of the ground on atomic matters. Keferring 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 vhat abstractions have .been debated, jl and it is now up to us — the atom-,, ;,| ic commission — r to present an im-. t mediate, a practical and a realistic program." . t ~ , Apparently ref erring "to the aop' '^ 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 to its \ fulfillment we believe, and our work follows this belief, that the best way of gaining our objective is lo do first things first. In the t very forefront of that, effort lies k the control of atomic energy. If we are able to solve that,vast problem, the others will come easier." lackson replied. "It's iatch act." like the Jackson said that $11,000 of the noney for the Doxey campaign was The American proposal, stressing international controls and inspections, was turned down flatly by Adrei A.

Collins had teslified 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 Doxey campaign in the run-off. Committee Counsel George Meader suggested to Jackson that f Travis told Bilbo's lawyer he lad a $7,500 deficit and told the jommittee later that the entire amount was spent on the Doxey campaign, he had made "a false 'satement." "I ihink so, yes sir," Jackson replied. Anolher wilness scheduled to appear before the commiltee was the pastor of a Baptist church promoted by Bilbo as a family memorial. The wilness was Ihe Rev. D. Wade Smilh of the Juniper Grove Baptist church at Poplarville, Miss. Bilbo solicited i'unds for the project, which includes an unused iour-bath parsonage, wilh assurances that it would be "bread cast upon the waters. 1 ' Seven witnesses, all conlractors )ec. 17 —(UP) Food hn Strachey told com• that 36,000 tons of lour had been made jr purchase by Great addition to a previous ,f 68,000 tons of wheat .ons of other grains, •d States also promised Uroad priority for the of addilional quantities i wheat, Strachey told are no further delays in these quantities, tot our existing supplies, suffice to avert a very vgency which we fore- e end of January." Id. It remained lo 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 for a strong internalional system of control of atomic energy established and defined by a treaty. This treaty (convention) would set up an international authorily with full powers of inspectipn 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. There are a series of sharp differences beween the United Slates and Russian plans, but observers generally agreed that the interna? tional inspeclion barrier apparently removed by Molotov was the biggest one. The other U. N. body currently active — the security council — yesterday heard representatives of Bulgaria, Albania and Yugoslavia join in a demand that the council investigale condilions inside Greece.

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, former manager of Bilbo's adjoining farm, said the parsonage still needs electrical work and plumbing. But Robert . Ladner, a hardware dealer, teslified that he sold Bilbo four bath tubs to go into the parsonage. He was one of the few witnesses during the first :'our days of testimony who didn't claim that Bilbo owed him some money for a loan or services rendered. Mosl of the conlractors said they contributed to the parsonage Continued on Pago Two bate. DELAYED CAMPAIGN Ketchikan, Alaska, Dec. 17 — (/f) — 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.
