m A ' h>fw» MOM STAR, MOM, ARKANSAS Rexolt of Nazi Youth Should Convince Us Job in Germany Isn't Done, Says Mackenzie iT\ By DfeWITT MACKENZIE 6f 'E ore| 9' 1 Affairs Analyst _ The Nazi underground plot to re- vjve Hitlerism in Germany, disclosed during the week-end, is grim warning to those who would relax the military occupation that the Allied task of reformation is faf from. *i>ii<;hed.

There you will find the majority of those whoir. Hitler was able to hypnotize with his poisonous doctrine. The youth movement fanatics re- pre'sent the .toughest -of the human problems which the Allies have in German rehabilitation. These young people — the most vital element in the Reich — are so thro- oughly Hitlerized that there appears to be small hope of persuading many of them to a change of heart. They can be kept in hand only by force, for force is their God. But the thing, cuts deeper than that. Since this age group is largely lost to the Allies, the most'ef- lective educational reform .must be made among the younger boys and girls — the sprouting .generation. There our main hope lies, and that is where the Allies are concentrating heavily. .-:.-. HoVyever, the occupation authorities are up against a great handicap because; while the children are friendly enough and are receptive to the'proper m training in their schools, they have to be sent home to parents who belong, to the Hit- lerized group. Thus, it's bound to come about that' many children's minds will.be 'contaminated by their fathers and mothers, who will use every means to undo the Allied teaching. . . So much .for this dangerous Hitler youth movement, but it would-be a mistake-.to think that this is the sole source of support for the -revival of Nazism.'The Prussianmili- tarists,' whose -only interesrin Hr?- lerism wa% that it filed in with their chemes for expansion of the reich by conquest, will do their utmost to 'unhorse the Allies, v Apropos of this, when I was :"a.t the war crimes trials at Nuernburg a short lime ago I reported to you that the defense of former Rei'chs> marshal Herman Goering and some other prominent figures was directed fully as much toward whitewashing the Hitler regime a.s towards securing acquital 'for those in the dock. In-fact it strikes me that Goering is quite resigned to conviction and is devoting 'his energy towards vindicating 'his government and thereby providing propaganda for a restoration. '."-The youth movement plot isn't surprising, of course, for it has been in the cards all along. And^it isn't the last thing of its kind which we shall see, because it's natural for a beaten people to try'.'to overthrow their conquerors. You can see the threat of this in the sullen and .often bitter looks you get from many Germans. Unfortunately the Germans have found more than a little encouragement for hostility in the differences of viewpoint which have cropped up from time to time among the Allies. Then the Hitlerites have taken further hope from what they thought were signs of a weakening of American determination to continue the military occupation over a long period of years. However, these Nazi hopes can be crushed by Allied solidarity and a demonstration-that we have ho intention of abandoning the program of occupation until Germany is reformed. That will take at least a generation, in the view of Allied experts, and it may require even longer.

Monday, ApriM, 1947 Middle Road Policy Wins in Greek Vote By ROBERT MEYER Athens, April 1 —(UP) —The Royalist Populist party won a limited victory in Sunday's Greek election, incomplete returns indicated today, but failed to record an overwhelming demand for the return of King George of the Hellenes. Populist leaders, who advocated a quick plebescite for the king's return to the throne, conceded that returns failed to fulfill their expectations of a major victory. Returns indicated that the Populists polled about twice the vote of any other participating party, but the total Populist strength was roughly equal to the combined voting power of the liberal party and national pplitical union. Informed quarters believed that a rightist- center coalition would result, and a plebescite on King George would be delayed until 1948. Greek voters apparently rejected both the left and extreme right in generally orderly voting. Despite strenuous appeals by the EAM Left-wing coalition to boycot the election,.an estimated GO to 70 percent of the eligible voters cast ballots. There were no left - wing canididates, The extreme right, represented by the militant monarchist organization called "X", was roundly defeated. It • polled only a few hundred ivotes. Ninety districts' in Athens and 38 districts in Salonika gave the Populists 33,593, the Liberals 15,022 and the National Political Union 14.-114. Both liberals and the National Political Union showed unexpected strength. i The exact extent extent and sig-' nificance of the abstentions was' obscure. It appeared that an average of 50 per cent of the voters boycoted the polls in the EAM strongholds of northern Greece, heeding the EAM charges that ihe election was unfair and loaded with ! Illegal voting lists. i In some conservative districts in I the Athens and southern areas, I there were only 20 per cent abstentions. Also pushed into eclipse was the Democratic National Union. (EDES) led by Gen. Napoleon Zer-1 vas. The strongly Nationalist Royalist group, which fought against EAM forces in the civil strife of December 1944, polled only a handful of votes. Premier Themistocles Sofoulis, aged leader of the Liberal party, and four other cabinet ministers were reelectcd members of Parliament from their districts. The balloting was'for seats in the National legislature, not for a list of national candidates. An authoritative government source estimated that abstentions from the polls, urged by the EAM parties, averaged 40 per cent throughout Greece. The absentions exceeded 60 per cent in some strongly left-wing districts, and approximately 20 per cent in other conservative areas. Aproximately 20 persons were killed during the election weekend, most, of them before the polls opened Sunday morning. Nevertheless,- the voting generally was orderly despite high pressure campaigning and propaganda efforts both from those parties participating and those abstaining. .,- An official communique said eight gendarmes were killed and eight ; others were missing, presumed -dead, in a clash with so- called Communists at Litochorn, near Salonika, Saturday night. One man was killed in a clash at the polls in Angelochoke, northern Greece, and three died Saturday afternoon in the Peloponnesus. Greek troops patrolled the streets Greek trops patrolled the streets and guarded the polls. A force of 240 .Allied observer teams including American, British and French personnel witnessed the balloting and vote counting. The British foreign office announced that the 'mission will release its report on the freedom and honesty of the elections on April 10. The Populist party is the chief Royalist party of Greece. It refused to participate in the Sofouli« government. The National Political Union is a coalition 01 tnree ngm- wing but Republican parties. The Liberal party once was the largest party in Greece but has been split by factionalism. Red Cross Continued from Page: One J. O. Johnson, Sr Dannie Hamilton Alvin Hamilton B. C.

The most needed Army reform, I believe, is the decrease of officer privilege. "As the campaign goes on I will try to explain what I believe in and how I would vote. Briefly: Inforeign policy, I am for the support of United Nations Organization and enlargement of its powers; a larger measure of free trade; oral and political support o! the struggle of Asiatic peoples for freedom. I believe Democracy is an "exportable commidity". On domestic economic policy I am in favor of a fair balance between labor and management. If the middle road swings to the right we are threatened with Fascism, if to 'the left with a Collectivism which labor wants no more than management. For Sputh Arkansas, I am anxious to see the per capita income and the educational standards raised. Both are below the national average. I will eagerly watch for Federal Government assistance to help develop our section. I am for South Arkansas institutions; farming, business, industrial, financial, educational, and religious. One thing seems clear in the confusion: We will all be prosperous together, or not prosperous together. To keep employment and income high and to keep us working together is the main thing.; "My campaign will be run as a man who has been on a soldier's income. No one is running me as his special candidate. I am completely dependent on my friends, who taken together, represent the whole community. I hope my support will come from the whole people just as my responsibility must be to the whole people. I invite aii to join me who agree with my stand, whether they are 'rich or poor, high or low, labor or management, from town or country.

In any event the British inference lhat the Russians are trying to atain their objective of Azerbaijan autonomy by indirection is not likely to smooth re' lations between Whitehall and the Kremlin. The Truman-Byrnes conferences in Washington, before Byrnes returns here tomorrow for Wednesday's council meeling, will have for guidance a full report from Lt. Gen. Walter Bedell Smith, America's new ambassador to Moscow, on his first few days in the Russian capital. He saw Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov over the weekend. Before Byrnes left New York Saturday, he had a last-minute conference with British Delegate Sir Alexander Cadogan. British sources reported that Byrnes and Cadogan agreed then that in case the Soviets snub the council's request the council must go ahead and hear the details of Iran's charges against Russia. The Soviet Union's payment of her financial contribulion to UNO was a welcome sign to those who are striving lo keep UNO from foundering in its infancy. No responsible officials have ever thought that the Soviets would pull out of UNO, especially over a case like Iran or even after Soviet Ambassador Andrei A. Gromyko's dramatic "walk" from the council chamber Wednesday. To support their view they had Gromyko's own statement thai Russia was absenling herself only from Ihe Iranian case and Ihe feeling lhat a tolal Russian walkoul Monday, April 1, 1947 Detroiters Walk; Strike in Transport agant political noise.

The system's daily load has been estimated al 1,8001000 fares. .Anticipating the strike, most of the city's workers were able to arrange transportation in advance.

HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Germany and Italy Failed to Get Three-Power Pact With Russia, Ribbentrop Testifies By WALTER CRONKITE Nuernberg, April 1 — (UP) — Joachim Ron Hibbentrop tokl the war crimes court today that the Nazis tried for months before the war to wangle Russia into a ful fledged Axis pact bill failed because the Soviet counter-demands were too stiff. Ribbentrop testified that Russia wanted Finland, "points of support" in the Balkans -and specifically in Bulgaria, and access to the Baltic, the Skagcrrak and the Dardanelles as Ihe price of a tripartite pact with the Nazis and Italy Afler conferring with Benito Mussolini, the witness said, Adolf Hitler turned down the Sovinl demands and Ihe negotiations looking lo Ihe three-power pact including Russia collapsed. Ribbentrop said that by the inclusion of Russia, the Axis would have become "such a strong coalition that it would have forced Eng- land to seek peace." The prosecution opened the cross-examination of Rlbbcnlrop after the. tribunal permitted the reading of an affidavit concerning a secret Nazi-Soviet pact on the dl^ vision of Poland. • Rudolf Seidl. defense counsel for Rudolf Hess, was allowed to read the disputed affidavit of Federick Gatis which the defense tried lo introduce last week. U gave substantially the ,sarne account ut\ Rib- bentrop. who said il was agreed during the Soviet-Nazi negotiations that "terrilories taken from others two powers by force of arms would be reunited with them by force of arms."

II was typical thai he should bow oul as he had bowed in — doing somebody a favor. He had disappeared, but it is to be hoped that the red tape cuting talents of this able and efficient man will be put to some worthwhile civilian use. Perhaps the Nalional Press Club can gel Harry a job in Washington. Comb 4-F Lists for Replacements Washington, April 1 — (UP) — Local draft boards have been asked to comb their 4-F lists thoroughly to supply ihe army with n minimum of 12;>,00p men this month, Selective Service headquarters said today. Monthly calls since last August have been about 50,000 The number was more than doubled for April to make up for the shortage of 118.000 under army requirements in inductions since V-J day. A Selective Service spokesman said thai probably more than 150.000 would be called up in iho effort lo induel 125,000. The higher lolal will be called because many men still cannot meet army physical standards, although they recently were lowered. The army said that it would accept men with non-serious hernias.

The Rev Michael Coleman, former vicar of All-Hallows Church, destroyed in the London blitz, cas- ligated the "befuddled thinking" of the democracies in a sermon at St. Mary's Episcopal cathedral. , "Democracy in your country and mine is dying on its feel, because for forty years we have taken the I fruit of Christian democracy, and I for the same length of time we have steadfastly turned from God," he said.

Significantly, the Soviet cable lo UNO Secretary General Trygve Lie was dispatched by Vice Foreign Minister Andrei I. Vishinsky on March 30 — The day after the council sent its appeals to Moscow and Tehran for clarification of the conflicling slalemenls in Ihose iwo capilals. The cable said merely: "On instructions of the council of ministers of the USSR, I have the honor to inform your excellency that the Soviet Union's contribution to the working capital fund of the organization, $1,723000, has been transferred on 31st March by the state bank of the USSR to the account of the United Nations Organization in the Federal Reserve Bank, New York." Only three other small nations have paid their full initial contributions — Belgium, her $332,750; Netherlands, her ?357,000; Norway, her $169,000. The Uniled Slales, which will foot about 25 per cent of UNO's bill under the scale of payments which is based on a country's ability to pay, has advanced only $500,000 of its $6,153,000 due. Great Britain has advanced $300,000 of her $3,692,750, and China $200,000 of her $1,600,000. The working fund was established in London to provide a means of financing UNO until the first budget is approved at the September assembly" meeting. The annual budget will run somewhat less than $25,00,000 — the provisional one for 1946 being about :B18,750,- •000. Soviet payment emphasized two almosl irreconcilable current policies of the Soviet Union — profession of its intent to give UNO its absolute support and coperfytion and .unwillingness to abide by a majority rule on procedural matters in the Security Council. Big Three relations have been plunging to lower and lower depths ever since the opening of UNO in London. Bui jusl prior lo Ihe opening of this council meeting, Stalin helped the situation by staling cal- egorically that the Russians considered UNO an important international instrument in the maintenance of world peace and security. , Less than a week later his ambassador was shocking the world by walking out of the council because 'the latler would nol posl- pone . consideration of the Iranian case until April 10. mild mental deficiencies and chronic neuroses and those who stammer or suiter.

The 2-CL class includes men deferred as farm workers who otherwise would be classified as 4-F's.

Accidents from fires are more apt, lo occur in crowded dwellings because of Ihe nature of their construction and the difficulty in getting large numbers of people out through only a few exits Those who must live under these conditions should adopt all known fire prevention practices. Inflammable material should not be stored, and extreme cure in handling healing appliances should be maintained. Mflny fires in crowded homes result from carelessness in the use of gasoline. Overcrowded living conditions may have a marked effect on school work, especially if adults occupy the room where the children sleep. Some parents permit children to remain up beyond their regular bedtime if others arc around, forgetting that if given a chance, the average child can learn lo sleep under averse circumstances. IDEAL REQUIREMENTS Ideal living conditions provide good safety standards. con- slruclion, lighting, ventilation, size and arrangement of rooms, and toilet facilities. A large family living room is required, and there should be separate sleeping quarters for each member of the family. Control ol noise through sound conditioning will reduce nervous irritation. Sanitary facilities for the preparation and serving of food should exist in all homes. Housing conditions should also be improved in rural districts. Public health authorities insist lhat rural electrification will .aid tremendously in bettering farm health conditions.

Old Bird Now Made Tender by'Shots' Baton Rouge, La., April 1 —(/P)—• Scientific attempts lo tenderize roosters with injections of female sex harmone:; have been successful. Dr. 0. E. Goff, head of Louisiana state university's poultry industry department, said today. Results of tests conducted on a large number of treated birds, Dr Gofi declared, have disclosed that the make bird's meal becomes more lender and palalatale through Ihe hormonixing process. The injections, he said, give the cock the desirable meal qualities of the female bird. The softening process begins about Iwo weeks after the initial injection. After from four to six weeks, il was found, the flesh of harmonized birds compared favorable with that of hens jr fryers. The discovery is expected lo represent a considerable financial ^ain for poullry growers since bct- er market prices may be expected for Die tenderized male birds, he poultry specialist said. ~ o — Ethnologists arc compiling a wordless dictionary, which is •jieant lo preserve Ihe sign language of Ihe Norlh American Indians. p Latitude is said to have been' first determined by Hipparehus of Nice, about 162 B.C. m a THEATRE DOUBLE DEAL" Pius Musical Shorf "FUZZY WUZZY'l-. u beautiful day, and she fell con- and full oi well-being.
