HOPE, ARKANSAS, TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 1946 Guns Smuggled Home From Battlefield Pave Way for Greatest U.S.Crime Wave By JACK STINETT (First of Two Articles) Washington—The "arsenal of democracy" already is or rapidly is becoming the arsenal for what easily could be the greatest crime wave Ihis country ever lias known. Manufacturers of lethal weapons are, making no contribution whatever to this arsenal. It's coming from souvenirs — deadly weapons from Iho world's battle fronts smuggled into this country by GIs and officers for collections. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover warns that "hundreds of thousands of such weapons" already are chached in the United States. The armed services long ago took cognizance of the clanger, even to the extent of developing the "in- spcctoscope"—an X-ray machine .hat examines all packages and uggage for contraband, especially weapons. The Marine Corps magazine, ealhcrneck, has studied the situa- :ion and reported it in an article titled "Murderous Mementos." Police chiefs of major cities have Jladed it No. 1 on their problem agenda and recently took home with them from a meeting in Wash- nglon Director Hoover's outlines .or a scrap drive to help ward off the danger. Attorney General Tom Clark recently asserted that an "orgy of crime" already is sweeping the country, with a 12.3 percent overall increase in serious crimes last year over 1944; but 'with a 23.9 percent increase in robberies and < 17.3 percent increase in burglaries Leatherneck indulges in wha some may laugh off as a little critic fantasy — the blasting of money-carrying armored trucks with a bazooka. Don't think the armored truck companies .' have laughed it off. FBI officials here tell inc that worried questions al ready have been put to them by some of these companies. J. Edgar Hoover doesn't laugl it off either. Bazookas undoubtedly have been smuggled into private homes as souvenirs. And Hoovei and his boys remember the Brady- Shafer gang. In the park of a small Indiana town not so many years ago, thieves stole a World "War I machine gun. Some time later, the FBI, after a gun battle in Bangor, Me., captured the Brady-Shafei gang. In their arsenal was that machine gun. Hoover resents "the libel placed on the doorstep" of ex-service men that the postwar crime wave will bo due to them. He's convinced that the veteran generally is a better citizen than when he went off to war. But through unscrupulous 'hockshops,' loo-good-lo-resist offers, trades, theft and carelessness, the weapons seep down to the criminal level. That's when trouble starts for law-abiding citizens.

For Ihe second day the Moscow press and radio piled denunciation upon Ihe head of Winston Churchill and the Anglo-American military alliance he proposed as a check to Russian expansion. "The Soviet Union is firmly determined to secure all its frontiers, and in trying to achieve this most legitimate and necessary aim it will not yield to any Ihreals or any sublerfuges, nor to any art of the most modern....weapons," Izvestia said. t The article added that Russia >%vill tread its own road without turning aside, without encroaching op other people's inleresls, and Without conceding those which are its own."

"If OPA," said Donald Montgomery, UAW consumer counsel, "plans to give price Increases to the auto industry, then they'll be dishing them out by the bucket." Montgomery made these statements to a reporter after OPA announced that higher prices are on the way for Chrysler. Ford and Hudson Cars. These companies applied for increases to offset pay boosts granted under the administration's wage-price formula Milk, butter and gasoline also are on the list of items on which pressure is being applied to OPA lor higher prices. Until the new car prices are announced for the three firms, they and their dealers must continue to sell cars at current ceilings, but they can require an agreement that customers will pay the increase when it is put into effect. An OPA official who asked to remain anonymous estimated that the price hike for manufacturers probably will not exceed three percent (or $45 on a $1,500 model), and he predicted that dealers might be required to absorb part of it Dealers' prewar profit margins already have been trimmed by OPA to prevent the full amount of earlier increases from being passed on to the public. Montgomery said that "of all industries, the auto industry is least entitled to price increases." He said OPA apparently was ignoring a provision of the policy which requires OPA to take into account an industry's prospects for increased production and lower costs. , "The auto industry," Montgomery declared, "is'-'galas to have to work hard to make less than it did in 1936-39." The stabilization formula requires a level of prices which assures at least 1936-39 profits.

The popular vole count was Peron 2,030 Tamborini 2,585.

Connally called for maintenance by this country of "an adequate army, a superior navy and a superlative air force." These, he said, would back up American determination not only to resist aggression by arms, but to "oppose aggression by economic or political pressure or maneuver." Pinning his hopes on the United Nations, Ihe Texas senator said that so long as Russia, Great Britain and the United Stales "remain loyal to the obligations of the charter and adjust differences as they arise, there will be peace." But, he added, "Ihose who want peace must not commit acts that tend to provoke war." Expressing the belief that the Soviet Union does not want war, Connally said he believes mutual understanding and cooperation with Russia "are not insuperable." "Russia can have peace by supporting and cooperating with the United Nations," he declared. "Her responsibility is great because, her power is great." Connally's speech, which he said he discussed briefly in advance with Secretary of State Byrnes, carried on the newly-instituted policy of plain-speaking about Russo- American relation's to which Byrnes and Senator Vandenberg (R-Mich) recently lent their voices. It is time, the Texan said, for a new meeting between President Truman, Prime Minister Attlee and Generalissimo Slalin. He said the big five foreign ministers ough to meet frequently, too. "In frank conversations face t< face — in candid explanations, eyt to eye — in language clear ant plain and, .i[.need be", blunt, mans questions wbiiSV-'nVight^dtHcn^^ result in serious international fric tion could be adjusled," he de clared. "Such conversations would gen erate mutual convictions of sin cerity of purpose," he said. "Thej would develop confidence anc trust Like treatments in the fielc of preventive medicine, if used a the right time they iviay be able to avoid a major surgical opera tion." Asserting that enemies of demco racy will attempt to drive "wedges of suspicion and distrust into the ranks of the United Nations," Connally said its members must nol act individually but must pull to gether for peace. "We fought the war together — we must maintain the peace lo- gelher," he declared. "It is complained that Russia, not in a single and isolated instance, but in a lumber of situations in distanl oarls of Ihe earth, has revealed a aattern of conduct x x x which is disquieting and disturbing lo in- lernalional good will and harmony.

Students, Only Egyptians Able to Hold Demonstrations, Lead Fight to Oust British Troops Pitched Battle Looms for Mukden By REYNOLDS PACKARD Peiping, March 12 — (UP) — A pitched battle for Mukden appeared probable today between 50,000 Chinese Communist Iroops massed outside the ruined Manchurian industrial center and a smaller Nationalist force, dug in and awaiting reinforcements. Reliable dispatches from Mukden reported that an additional 40 000 Communist troops were con- verging toward Mukden. A Central News Agency dispatch from Harbin, 315 miles to the northeast of Mukden, said that more than 10,000 Communist troops were assembled 15 miles outside the city, readv to move in if Russian troops vacate it. There was little optimism here over a political selllement of the Communist - Nationalist dispute and heavy fighting seemed probable. Nationalist commanders had an estimated 120,000 troops in southern Manchuria available for battle .there were only 15,000 stationed in <u e i vestern Part of Mukden when the Russians began their withdrawal during the weekend, but reinforcements from nearby areas were being called in. The Nationalist forces held the main part of the city, and the Communists were drawn up on the outskirts. Reports from Mukden said that the Russians officially notified the Chinese Nationalists of their withdrawal Monday afternoon. They handed over five barracks buildings, an airfield and six factories. The Central News Agency said that Lieut. Gen. Andrei Kovtoun- stankevich, Soviet commander, was remaining in Mukden with.' some troops.
