WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINB Russia Warned US Will Resist Attack With All Weapons LONDON (AP) — NATO's supreme commander in Europe, U. S. Gen. Alfred M. Gruenther, warned Russia last night that the West will meet a Soviet attack with "every weapon in our arsenal," including atomic bombs. "In our thinking we visualize the use of atomic bombs in the support of our ground troops, we also visualize the use of atomic bombs on targets in enemy territory," Gruenther told a D-Day anniversary dinner at which Prime Minister Churchill also spoke and the Duke of Edinburgh presided. If war with Russia should come this year, the NATO commander said, "the Soviet Union would be defeated." "I do not want to say we would win," he added, "because I am sure in a third world war there would be no winner." .Gruenther also told his audience he.was not sure time was on the side of the West. Russia's industrial and atomic stockpiles are mounting, he explained, and her air power displayed at the recent May Day parade in Moscow was "devastating." But at present, he said, the Soviets have no answer to the Allies' long-range aircraft. He cited the big American B47 jet bomber, "a plane which can fly so fast and so high that there is no defense against it in 1954." Gruenther told of one B47 which recently flew the Atlantic in 4 hours 34 minutes. . Churchill told the West that "peace through strength must be our guiding star." He warned that if the free nations relax their defense efforts, it would imperil European peace, and if differences split the Allies, it would lead to "general ruin and enaimvement." Most AFL, CIO Unions to Sign 'No Raiding' Pacts WASHINGTON UP) — A sizable majority of AFL and CIO unions prepared to sign a labor peace pact today despite efforts of some powerful unions to kill off the idea. By signing, unions would pledge not to "raid" the memberships of other labor groups which agree to abide by the pact. Almost 70 of the AFL's 110 affiliates and more than 30 of the CIO's nearly 40 unions were reported ready to sign. AFL President George Meany and CIO President Walter Reuther have plugged the plan as a preliminary to possible merger of their two organizations into a single 15-million-member labor federation Among the holdouts were known to be the 1,300,000-member AFL Teamsters union, headed by Dave Beck, the 700,000-member AFL Carpenters union, and the 1,200,000 member CIO Steelworkers union, headed by David J- McDonald.

The lot, now owned by J. D. Robinson, WHS once designated as a street but was not inside the city limits. The surrounding property in that section became the property of an insurance company which went into County Court, and had the land repluted and this piece of land changed to a lot instead of a street. Want Street Opened The people who live in that area want the street opened to aleviate traffic problems. The Council asked them to have a petition circulated asking for that action. It was explained that the people in that area would have to bear the cose of buying the Jot. < Another delegation a-sked for the paving of Tenth Street and more speed limit enforcement on that street Tenth street was not included in the new paving district because of the low property valuation along the street. Few houses face Tenth Street. The delegation stated that since the stop signs had been changed to make Tenth a through street, the traffic had increased, causing dust and speeding problems. Mayor Jackson appointed a committee to meet with County Judge Phillip Deer and see how much help the county would furnish in paving the street. He also said the city street department would canvas the residents of that street to determine their readiness to pay the usual $1 per running foot fee for blacktopping the street.

Molotov also called for discussions on the sovereignty of the throe Indochincse states, even though they all claim to be independent. He called for withdrawal of all foreign troops — meaning French I'oivo.s—-before elections could be held. At the same time, he stuck to his demands that supervision of the armistice agreements be handled by a mixed commission of Communist and non-Communist nations, made up of Poland. Czechoslovakia, Switzerland and Sweden. The West already has rejected the Communist, supervision plan. British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden advanced his own proposal yesterday that policing of the armistice be placed in the hands of the five Asian nations whose premiers recently met at Colombo, Ceylon. They are India, Pakistan, Ceylon, Burma and Indonesia. U, S. Under Secretary of State Walter Bedell Smith supported Eden's proposals. These statements, after more than six weeks of intense debute, left, the conference still tightly deadlocked on every major point. The same was true of the Korean question, which is being considered by a 19-nation group here. OSCEOLA NEWS (Continued from page 3) school grounds where he was graduated in May. * * • BUCK IS the great great grandson of Admiral Raphael Semmcs, who was commander of the "Alabama," the most famous Confederate vessel in the war of secession. Having grown xip on stories of his famous ancestor, Buck learned early in life of what the American flag stands for and as soon as he was old enough to become a Cub Scout, he rigged himself up in everything pertaining to the order and while he was a Cub, he was made mascot of the Osceola Scout Troop 51. When he reached 12, h* laid *slde his Cub Scout uniform and nobody in Osceola could have been any prouder than when hi« parent*, Mr. and Mrs. W. V. (Lefty) Alexander, took him to Memphis and outfitted him from,head to foot in what his older brother had been eligible to wear a couple of years previously. You know how those two yean can lord over the younger brother. It's quite a rarity having two Eagle Scout sons, but Buck said his older brother sure made it hard for him to earn merit badges, especially the swimming badge. He thought he was a pretty good swimmer and was eager for the test but he almost drowned trying to pass it — he had to pass it before the most critical person on earth — his brother. • • • BUCK CLAIMS he could have passed it at camp with flying colors — red, white and blue that is. He had been swimming since he could walk but Brother Bill had him performing tricks that had never been given a Scout before nor since. Buck was made an Eagle Scout the day of the Memorial services for Steve Ralph, and up to this writing he has earned 34 badges. Like father, like son, Buck is interested in sports of all kinds and was one of the star football players during his high school career. He's young enough, 18, to say he's quite a ladies' man and was recently elected president of the new teen-age Cotillion Social Club. He is acting as one of the life guards at the new swimming pool and will enter the University of Arkansas in September. He's an all-around American Youth and is as proud of his Eagle Scout training as a second lieutenant would be coming out of Officers Candidate School. Through his Scout activities, he was given the opportunity for all the virtues that make for efficient manhood and good citizenship and those are the things that are represented in our American flag.
