PAOB BIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, HEPT. 1Z, 1»H British Guiono— First Red Government in Americas Beginning to Show Signs of Chaos By DANIEL JAMES NEA fp*clal Correspondent GEORGETOWN, British Guiana — (NEA) — The first Communist-led government in the Western Hemisphere has been in office for three and a half months in this British colony, and already there are signs of panic and chaos. It li not a government, liks Guatemala's, in which Communists exert Influence through others. It« leading ministers are themselves Communists. Why Communism selected as it* first hemisphere victim this colony o! 84,000 mil*8 and 450,000 people it not clear. But a few facts about British Guiana may be enlightened. British Guiana Is the world's Mcond largest producer of bauxite, an aluminum ore with numerous peacetime and wartime uses. It also mines gold and diamonds, and is believed to contain uranium and oil. * * * The colony k politically part of the British West Indies, which are about to unit* in a Caribbean Fed- On* of the first applications of the transitor, the tiny low-power (adget that may take over a lot of the Jobs of the radio vacuum tube, itttn the hearing aid.

Communist-run British Guiana could,, as a part of that federation, create plenty of trouble in an area that touches U. S. Interests at many points. The Caribbean, in fact, contains the so- called outer rim of our hemespheric defense bases- Through English speaking British Guiana is geographicaUy located in northern South America. Prom that position It could have an Influence on a continent wide open to nationalist and Communisl agitation. The leader of the British Gui- anes government, Dr. Chcddi B Jagan, a dentist of East Indian origin who wae educated at northwestern University frankly admitted his Communist sympathies to me in the first interview he has granted a U, S. newsman since assuming office. "The Communist movement champions the underdog, and I consider myself part of it," he said. In a radio talk he frankly asserted: "I am a great admirer of the Soviet Union, People China and the Peoples Democracies." With views like these broadcast throughout British Guiana, no Wonder many people are expressing concern. There Is first, something of an exodus of people out of the colony. Emigration to North America has increased 20 per cent in the past few months, according to Pan American World Airways, chief carrier of the passenger traffic. Brltalsh Guiana lost $500,000 In new revenue, between Jnmmry and Mny, because foreign exporters hes- Itnte to ship to the colony. This will take a good slice out of a normal $18 million budget.

Guzzlin' Time Cut by ABC LITTLE ROOK Ifl—The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board yesterday cut a half hour off the deadline for legal beer sales on Saturday nights for on-premlses consumption. Previous regulations allowed beer to be sold until midnight. An amendment adopted yesterday halts beer sales at 11:30 p.m. Another amendment says beer bought before the' deadline must be consumed by 12 midnight. The new regulation goes into effect this weekend. The ABC also adopted a provision to prohibit establishmepts i where beer is sold from covering' their windows.

School Boat Ousts Bus AVALON, Catalina Island (ft — Children of Empire Landing, an island settlement, may enjoy the distinction of a school boat instead of a school bus. Long Beach Unified School District adminsters Catalina's schools and Superintendent Douglas A. Newcomb said yesterday he is studying cost comparisons between bus and boat transportation for the kids.
