r'tt Page Four HOPE STAft, HO* I, ARKANSAS Saturday, January U. S. Must Participate in Occupation of Reich, Our Cost of Future Peace J:by DeWITT MacKENZIE Paris, Jan. 12 — We have been ' -.watching with understanding—But f .with much anxiety—the demonstra- i -.tldns here in Paris by the GI's who want to be sent back home. \ , The GI viewpoint is inded easily Understandable. He isn't a professional soldier, but one of the millions of fellows who have given up college or employment and have left their homes lo risk their lives bil the 'battlefields for (Uncle Sam. :He's a grand chap, whd has done a 'magnificent Job—and done patriotically. Now he is homesick and aching to get back to his folks and own pursuits. If that were the whole story, .the only concern would rest, in how long it would take to demobilize . the American force in Europe. But it isn't the whole story by a long shot, for when the GI gives ;up his duties as a part of the occupation troops of Germany, he milst"be replaced by another well ^trained soldier—or at least there "must be sufficient replacements so ."that America can maintain a pow- 'erful force in the Reich indefitely. -*-Long before the war ended, the ^Allied leaders had decided that there was only one possible way to insure the world against further German aggression. That was for 'Allied troops to occupy the father land, over a long period of years. tDuring'which the people would be re-educated in the ways of peace ' and democracy. i. -VWe-invited the Second World War —and got it—by our failure to oc- , .copy. Germany in 1918 arid finish off the job. Now we are faced with a similar problem. How will it be ^solved Well, a lot of Germans are ..thinking, and hoping, that in a year v.or two there won't be any Americans left in the country. , However, that won't happen unless America decides to wash her bands of Europe. We could, of .course, withdraw'all troops from Germany and leave the occupation to- the Russians, British, French and Belgians, but that would be k \neither fair nor expedient. We certainly want a hand in re-educating ..the Germans, since twice within a .generation they've dragged us into war and thus demonstrated that American isolation is impossible . * So we arrive at the conclusion that Yankee troops must participate in the occupation of Germany. That much is apparent to •the careful observer. Obviously it isn't the business of. the observer. however, to determine how these soldiers shall be provided. One might venture the thought, though, that service in the force of occupation might be made attractive enough so that sufficient trained men would want to volunteer Surely none can over look the .fact that it's better to serve in a peacetime force of occupation, than ' to be in actual combat because peace has been rupured again by .the warmongering Germans: , As thing now stand we haven't completed our task of defeating the ', Germans .We have them beaten I, physically for the time being, but ( we haven't thrashed themjnental- ly; Many of them still cherish thoughts of revenge and of fresh conquest. ^'If we make the occupation in- Hope Star Star of Hop* 1199; Pr«M 1927, Consolidated January II, 1929 Published every weekday afternoon by Star Publishing Co.,- Inc. \(C.

'. .—r ^—0 Washington By JACK STINNETT j Washington — Presidenl Truman has been criticised for a number of his importanl governmcnlnl ap- pomlmerils. Some of it certainly is undeserved. ; Rarely, if ever, has a new Chief Executive had to sit by while so sciany.ace executives and. advisers have left his staff nor has a pres- idenl had.more difficulty persuading top-hotchers to come into the government . .'Dollar-a-ycar men and executives who served for $10,000 a year or less during the war, when they could make many times that in private industry, now feel free to accept those attraclive offers without being accused of lack of patriolism, Also, though il is rarely • mentioned, many of these men •are •'certain thai a period of infla- lion is coming when government white-collar salaries will hardly kcfep the wolf from the door. 1(2) President Truman's ideologies, being much more near the middle of the road than President Rposevelt's, don't allracl the men who are willing to sacrifice every- Ihing for an idea. Without casting any reflection on the men who have succeeded Ihem, let's just glance at the men who have joined the great exodus from Washington. We could go back to the Thomas Corcorans and Leon, Hendersons who look 'Iheir talents elsewhere and for much more money before President Roosevelt's death.

Appointment of Bell lo succeed Ihe'"resigned" Elmer Layden was the final touch to signs the Moguls of. the National have been hanging out Xbr weeks about how they feel toward the brand new circuit, U'hich already has signed up some three dozen of Iheir players and is aiming at bucking them in several cities, notably New York, Chicago and Cleveland. ' Officially, the National League announced last night that tall, inild Layden, late of Noire Dame's four- horseman backfield, had resigned as president and commissioner after « five-year term, and that Bellj a short, stocky, "give-mc-a- fighl"- kind of guy, had been named to, succeed him under a three-year contract calling for $20,000 salary a year. The National League moguls .said, too, that Layden would remain in an advisory capacity at $20,000 per annual "advisory." o Little Rock, Jan. 11 —(fi 1 )— Application of the General Waterworks.

Discontent There Is more than homesickness .behind Ihe sorry picture of dislonlenl. low morale and van- lushing discipline among American troops in Manila. A deep re- scnlmcnl is also evident, which apparently arises from a number of conflicting stories and half truths as to why Ihc men aren't being sent home. A service newspaper, Ihe Dnl'y Pncifican, may have struck al Ihc rool of Ihc trouble wilh this illu- i/nnaling statement: "We were briefed on our mission during Ihc days of combat. Let us be briefed now!" No ones blames Ihc soldier or sailor overseas for wanting lo come home. Combat veteran or nol, the man wilh months of foreign service deserves the speediest possible return to civilian life. It is the duty of the Army iiind Navy and of Ihe whole country to sec lhal he gets it. Bul unfortunately there must be tAtncrican troops in Europe and Ihc Pacific regions for a long time to come. The fighting has slopped, but turbulence and unrcsl remain. The men of the occupying forces have an extremely important, task lo perform in securing Ihe viclory so dearly won. The Army has made il clear to those al home lhal voluntary enlistment and Selective Service arc not now providing enough men lo handle Ihis occupalion job. Thus Ihc rale of discharge for men in the service must be slowed up for 'a time. It has explained lhal Ihe precarious and volalilc state of peace in the Pacific makes necessary the presence of a sizable force in the strategic base of Manila, and that our soldiers arc there to guard the peace, nol the Filipinos. But has the Army explained Ihis fully lo Ihe men involved? Are they briefed for their peacetime mission as fully as Ihcy were foi combal? Apparently nol, judging from the service paper cjuotcc . ijbovc and from other statement? by soldiers in Manila. At any rate, something has happened lo lurr part of a mighty fighting force ol superior spirit and slrcnglh inlo an army of protesting, dcmonstrat ing malcunlcnls. One ol the world aspects of ai obviously bad situation is lhat Ihc soldiers' grievances arc playing right into Ihe hands of the domestic Communists, whose lalest line is "bring the boys home"—a solicitude which no one can be so jfliive as to lake at face value. Soldiers were asked at a Manila mass meeting if they wanted lo be used lo further British imperialism in Java and to help Chiang Kai-Shek defeat the Chinese Communists. They were given handbills which asked: "Do you want to be used as pressure for compulsory military training legislalion?" There is ;i threat of real harm to domestic accord, American policy and, ultimately, world peace if this situation is allowed lo continue and develop. It is up to Iho •Jirmy lo straighlen it out, quickly, C vankly and fairly. o U.S. Merchant Ship Sinkings Agreed On By ANN STRINGER < ' Nuernberg, Jan. 14 —(UP) — 'The war crimes tribunal heard evidence today thai Germany and Japan agree early in the war to sink U.

Documents were presented from Nazi naval files showing thai Adolf Hitler oullinecl the U-boal cam paign againsl the United States in a talk with Japanese Ambassador , Hiroshi Oshima soon after Iho oul- '.Kreak of war. An official memorandum said Hitler "hopes to put 20 to 24 U- boats into operation along the coast of the United Slates" in short order. "The fuehrer pointed oul that however many ships the Uniled States built, one of the main problems would be lack of personnel," the memorandum said. "For that reason even merchant ships would be sunk without warning with the intention of killing as many of the .crew as possible. - "We are fighting for our existence, and our attitude cannot be ruled by any humane feelings. Foi this reason we must give an ordei thai in no case should foreign sca- inen be laken prisoner." Oshima "heartily agreed" anc said Japan would be forced to foi low Ihe same melhods. Col. H. J.

Production al "basic" sleel plants — those which convert ore io pig iron and the iron and scrap lo sleel — was below normal as the companies soughl to restore the outpul of blast furnaces and open hearths banked and cooled in anticipation of a shutdown. An industry spokesman said this task might not be completed before Wednesday. But reports from the steel centers of the continent said workers were obeying Ihc order of CIO- USW Chief Philip Murray to go lo work as usual. Murray at the request of President Truman following an eleventh-hour parley with Presidenl B. F. Fail-loss of U. S. Sleel Corporalion, had delayed the scheduled strike until next Sunday midnight. Murray and Fairlss arranged lo resume Wednesday, again at the While House, discussion of the latesl wage offer by the steel firm and a counter-proposal from the union. Neither of these offers has been made public, bul when Presi- denl Truman intervened to summon the two leaders for Ihc Saturday White House parley they were only a few ccnls apart U.

Also unsettled, and figuring romincntly in Ihe wage discus- ion, was the projected sleel price icrcnse.

Barron said lhal Taguc tried to commit suicide by taking poison in jail at Farmer City Saturday night. On the way to Chicago, however, Tague said he had been "joking" about his possible conncclion with the case. Barron said Taguc had been selling knives on a street corner in the vicinity of Ihc Degnan home about a week before Ihe kidnaping. Caruso was picked up in a tavern at Suburban Mclrose Park where he was telephoning police thai he had information about Ihe Degnan case.

Senator Lucas (D-I11) said fJcwey's statements to Marshall's cprcscnlativc who. delivered the oilers indicated that the New York governor already knew the ode was broken. Lucas has said he wants to know vho told Dewcy about this highly mportanl military secret. But the llinois senator told a reporter to- lay he will nol insist upon Dewey's jciiig called iC the committee dc:ides to shorten the hearings. Lucas and Senator Ferguson (R- Vlich) agreed that the commilcc nusl clear up evidence aboul the 'winds" message.

Yugoslavia was elected to the inal vacancy on the economic anc social council after New Zealand vilhdrew. Neither country had •received the necessary two-thirds najorily in voling Saturday in which 17 members were selected. Later this week UNO will heal spokesmen of many others of the 51 member nations, including Brit sh Foreign Secretary Ernest Bev British sources said Bcvin probably would offer lo place Britain's Tiandalcd territories from the first world war — including Palestine — under a New United Nations trusteeship system.

The question of trusteeship, which is urgent for Britain, is nol :il the moment so important to the Uniled Slalcs, whose chief aim is lo make sure thai il keeps control over strategic base areas captured in the Pacific Russia holds no mancialcs but has indicated she wants a leading role in Ihc supervision of truslecships The log jam which had blocked action of Saturday's assembly session on selection of Iho 18th and final member of the economic and social council was cleared when New Zealand withdrew her candidacy in favor of Yugoslavia. A ballot then gave Yugoslavia 45 votes to three for Now Zealand. The assembly decided lhat China, Peru, France, Chile, Canada and Belgium will bo the three- year members of the council. Russia, Britain, India, Norway, Cubs and Czechoslovakia were elected to two year terms. This left the Ukraine, Greece, Lebanon, the United States, Colombia and Yugoslavia to serve one-year lerms. The assembly then decided that henceforth in assembly elections a majority should be counted on the total of voles deposilcd instead of on those considered valid. Two ballots have been nullified so far in assembly elections U .S. Secretary of State James F. Byrnes said he would open n general discussion on international issues, including atomic energy, either late today or tomorrow — depending on how rapidly the as- sr^ibly completes discussion of the storing committee's report. Byrnes also may be selected to present to the assembly a six- power proposal recommending the establishment of a commission to supervise alomic controls The proposal is sponsored by Russia, Great Britain, the United States Canada, Britain and China. Byrnes said that no definite decision had been reached on who would make the presentation, but today heatedly invited the CIO to mind its own business and let the commitlcc handle its 'own affairs Their anger was aroused by a CIO charge that the investigation was causing delay in congressional action on needed special legislation while'the investigators "vie for headlines." The CIO demanded a hall to the inquiry. Sen. Scott W. Lucas, p., 111., n member of the commillee and usually friendly to the CIO, declared lhal il was "jusl asinine to ay thai the hearing is delaying any legislalion." "I don't think it's any business of the CIO lo Iry lo lell an invesli- laling commillee of Ihis kind what I should or should not do. We arc ible to take care of that ourselves." The CIO blasl against the 10- •ncmtaer committee was made by .he organization's legislation direc- ,or, Nathan Cowan, in a letter to committee Chairman Albcn W. Berkley, D., Ky. He listed anti- ooll tax legislation, the permanent 'air employment pracliccs com- millee bill and Ihe proposed 65 cents minimum wage law as examples of the legislation the CIO [eels has been delayed by the Pearl Harbor invcstigalion. Lucas pointed out that none of the Senate members of the com- millce is chairman of the committee considering the legislation in question. Sen. Owen Brewsler, R., Me., another commillee member, noted that the Senate met regularly up to Dec. 22, when it adjourned for the holidays. "1 know of no legislation delayed because of this inycsligaling activity," Brewster said.

Her counsel, a Benton attorney, f.aid Ihc reduction would be accepted. The aclion was Ihc outgrowth of a grade crossing accident Aug. 21, 1944 north of Benton when Mrs. Yandell's husband, Erwin, was killed. The Supreme Court said the jury should have found Yandell was guilty of negligence in driving his truck upon the track while warning lights were flashing aiid, therefore ,it was the jury's duly to diminish the amount of damages soughl.

An affirmative vote of ten of the quipment workers' 15 locals was iccessary to meet the federation request. That number had not acceded when the poll was halted emporarily shortly after 4 a. m. CST). Postponement of the threatened nationwide strike of all telephone workers plus CIO acceptance of he government-sponsored wage compromise for General Motors workers had served earlier to brighten the labor . picture. These late developments, coupled with the earlier one-week delay in the steel strike .offginally set for today, raised hope in some government circles that tension over postwar industrial strife soon might slacken. Behind this hope was the feeling that a "brather" in telephones and , steel and further pressure on General Motors Corporation for settlement of the 55-day;old auto .Strike would vimpTjiiye changes for^ set-*' tling all three disputes A steel settlement, particularly, could provide a wage pattern,for other industries. On the less hopeful side, however, Vas the absence of any indication that tomorrow's scheduled strike in the electrical industry or Wednesday's in the meat packing industry could be averted. The telephone strike, affecting some 250,000 workers throughout the nation, was ordered last night by the executive board of the National Federation of Telephone Workers. . Within minutes after the strike call was announced by Federation President J. A. Beirne, however, Ihe board ordered it delayed to permit member locals to file 30- day strike notices. The board also asked Western Electric Company strikers to withdraw pickets from telephone exchanges. Ernest Weaver, president of the Association of Communications Equipment Workers whose members are on strike against the i—Mrs. I Western Electric firm, began an the Senate ap immediale poll of 15 ACEW locals on Ihe federalion request. Shortly after 4 a. m. (CST), however, Weaver's office announced that not enough acceptances had been received to call off the picketing. A two-third majority, or ten locals, is required to defer the Western Electric strike, a spokesman for the union president, said, adding that the poll was being discontinued for the night. The status of the poll at that lour was not announced. "The only thing we can say now," the spokesman said, "is that .his union (the equipment workers) is still on strike. We may have something else to say later in the morning. Withdrawal of the pickets would mean that telephone operators, who as federation members have been honoring the picket lines, could relurn to their switchboards, Federation officials directed their 48 member locals to file individual strike no-tices in conformity with Ihe SmilhrConnaUy war labor disputes acl which requires notification to the government 30 days in advance.
