Uwis Hugh Gorrett of history — or at least that's the way it seems to liic present generation which has to endure the consequences — out it would be equally tragic if the world allowed wish Ul thinking to blind it lo the true nature of this struggle. There still are folks in the United States, and in other democracies, .who think thai because Russia was our ally in the world war the present clash must be based on misunderstanding. Therefore, they think the difficulty can be cleared up by comradery and concessions toward the Soviet Union. It would be grand if the problem could be solved so easily! The trouble with such an argument is that it's based on wishes and not on facts. What are the facts which should govern our attitude in this historic clash? Well, in the first place we must recognize that the Soviet Union was our ally purely by force of circumstances over which it had no control. Russia signed the non-aggression pact with Hitler willingly and Knowing thai Ihis would precipitate the world war, and at the same time the to countries partitioned Poland between them. Furthermore, Nazi Foreign Min ister Von Ribbentrop (hanged for his war crimes by Ihe Allies) testified at Nuernberg that Moscow also offered to join Germany against tne Allies, but that the Red urice was luo high. Then when Hitler became suspicious of a double-cross by Russia, he attacked her and thus forced her to become one of the Allies. try lo appease a wildcat. It's encouraging therefore to see steadily growing recognition of the truth by the democracies. One of the most striking examples js Ihe Judge Dodge announced that any sensational defiance of Russia by j other prosecuting attorneys who . . Once the war was over, immediately resumed her Russia world revolution i'or the spread of communism. The fact that she had armies throughout eastern Europe enabled her to commanize country after^ country by strong-arm methods. The post-war chaos cloaked the full extent of her operations from ihe western world. Having brought eastern Europe under her domination she began reaching in a big way for the west. Hence the present near-revolutions in France and Italy, and Moscow's open warfare on the Marshall plan. Russia, is making war on the democracies. It's none the less a war because bombers aren't being used. These hostilities have been labeled "cold war," and it is vital for our own security to recognize Little Rock, Dec. 12 —(/P)— The suit of 42 county judges seeking 11,553,000 from the State Highway onstructipn Fund under Act 100 if i!947 will be tried on the main sstte by Pulaski Chancellor Frank Dodge on Dec. 20. As result by Pulaski Chancellor Frank Dodge on Dec. 10. ,A.s result of controversy over iling of the suit by private attorneys, Leffel Gentry, Little Rock, and Marcus Feitz, Jonesboro, announced at a hearing before the chancellor today they were withdrawing as attorneys for the iudges. In open court they hand- pd; to Judge Clarence Freeze of ~!raighead county, secretary of the County Judges association contracts which they had received authorizing 'them to represent' the various county judges. In announcing their withdrawal, Genrry said that Prosectuing Attorney Millard Hardin of Newport would intervene and represent his counties and possibly all other as a class. After'Hardin moved to adopt the compalint previously filed, 'three other prosecutors — John F. Gibson, Dermott; Dave Partain, Jr., V,an Buren, and James Pilkinton, Hope ; — announced their Jntcrven- ion as representatives of their various counties. Pilkinton was represented by his deputy Koyee Weis- cnberger. After intervention of the prosecutors, the court sot rhe cns;e :"or hearing on Dec. 20. Hardin . announced that he would not pjsh the motion for a tomperorary retraining order contained n the original complaint. The order would have halted expenditure of state highway funds below a balance of the figure sought in the suit. "I am speaking only for myself," he said. "But as far ns I am concerned wo only want this case tried on the main issue to determine whether.or not the counties are entitled to that money. Of course, I would like to have that done as soon as possibe."

Three of the survivors — none seriously injured — were fl^wn out of the icy wilderness in an air transport command helicopter yesterday to Goose Bay. They will be transferred lo Walter Reed Hospital, Washington, D. C. A light snow fell this morning in the region but meteorologists said it was not severe enough to prevent flying. The mercury dropped to eight degrees during ths night, but to 18 at 7:30 a. m. (EST).

CoL "5-havry Bullis, of Portland, Mich London, Dec. 12 •— (fP) — Soviet sources reported today Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov might offer to defer Russias $10,000,000,000 reparations claim against Germany if the foreign .ministers' conference would agree to immediate establishment of all-German economic and administrative agencies in the Reich. These sources, close to the Russian delegation at the conference, said Molotov might propose today a deferment of the claim for reparations from current production until German economy is balanced and the country is paying it. There was no immediate estimate of how long this would be. Whether such a concession would open the way for an overall German settlement remains questionable. The Russian approach to the creation of alt-German administrative and economic agencies differs substantially :from U. S. views. Russia prefers the vesting of more power in a central autrority. The United States, backed by France and Great Britain, favors a limited decentralization. Molotov is expected to make a major- statement today or tomorrow. This statement probably will be Molotov's promised response to U. S. Secretary of State Marshall's assertion Wednesday that Russia's reparations demands could not be paid without either -wrecking German economy or making the American taxpayer carry the load.. The Soviet minister contended that Marshal was incorrect and said he would prove it. me hard-pressed French government. America is showing her recognition in her housecloaning to i;ct rid of fifth-columnists who have been infiltrating into all walks of life includng the public schools. The United Slates House of Representatives lias voted in favor of shutting off American assistance to countries which fall under Commu- ist domination, and has gone on record against distribution of relief 1'ood by'Communist officials or organizations. Canada and South America also have, been cleaning house. This doesn't mean that we don't want to be friends with Russia. We do. But it takes two parties to make a friendship, and we aren't p,oing to tie our hands with friendly feelings while our throats arc being cut. •There is no place whatsoever in our way of life for bolshevism. We won't stand for it in our own country, and we will assist weaker countries to defend themselves against Red aggression.

In a statement prepared before he knew that other prosecutors would join him in the' action Hardin said "after the suit had been filed it appeared that the merits of the case would be clouded by an issue concerning employment of special attorneys and two of the country judges in my district requesled me to represent their counties." The statement continued that following conferences Frietz and Gentry agreed to withdraw from the suit and "there now remains the only issue which have ever been in this suit; that is whether the counties have any road money coming to Ihem under act 100 of 1947. I feel that the counties in my district need and want whatever money is due Ihem under the law, and that they are entitled to have this issue, which is purely a legal question, decided by the courts."

Mr. and Mrs. Hugo Elkins of He was called on lo show that loyalty by an act of idolatry worse than that of bowing down to wood and stone — the sacrilege of setting up a-man, and a very bad man at that, in the place of God. In some respects it was no sterner a test than many have had to lace In our own time. The penalty of disobedience, in refusing such disnonest anct blasphemous worship, was hardly more severe than mat that thousands in this century have; suffered, as the mass executions, gas chambers, ana ovens of destruction bear wit- ess. If the Book of Revelation, with its symbolism and its strange ana colorful images, is in many parts hard lo understand, and aoubtful or' interpretation, it is because of the dangers that beset both its author and its 'readers in those uays of persecution. It was written in a sort ot secret code, though us symbols and figures would be understood by those lor whom it was written. Dogmatic interpreters, who are sure that they have the right key and understand all its mysteries, will condemn me for suggesting that much in the Book is aii'fictilt and of doubtful interpretation. But the very fact that tne interpretations differ so much, is he surest evidence of what I am suggesting. But, if much is difficult to understand, much also is sublime and moving in its beauty and power, anct there is an unfailing sureness in the, assertion of God's DOROTHYDIX Marrying lor Money DEAR MISS t)IX: What is youf . opinion of mothers Who try lo mar- .ways cheerful letters. ry their daughters to rich men?

THE STORY: It all started after I had been in Hollywood three months, writing the movie script for one of my own mystery books —arid lelling Jeff Haverson help me get over Oscar Craig. Jeff was director of my picture and a very attractive man. When Liz Leyden, my unpleasant collaborator, informed me vindictively lhal Jeff had been married for some lime lo Avis Vaughn, our glamor star. I was stunned. Jeff had been searching for an actress who looked enough like Avis to play her sister in Ihe film, but not finding one had cast Avis in both roles. Thai days rushes showed bil-player Madge Na'rney lo be Ihe perfect double for Avis. But the star didn'l line Ihe idea and Ihreatened Irou- ble. Jeff walked me back lo my office afterwards, admitted his marriage, said Avis refused to divorce him. . .: ' -IX His voice was a monotone. He deliberately squeezed all - emotion from it to keep it from • beiraying mm. "Irs hard lo believe now, 1 ' Jeff said, "bul I was in love with Avis when I married her.

Never give other aclresses or directors a chance lo come between us "I had an attorney friend draw up an agreement and Avis and I signed it. as long as we were married to each otner. I was to clir- ecl every play she starred in; and she was lo have Ihe feminine lead in every play I directed.

This was strictly between Jeff and Avis. And I was beginning to get an idea. If Avis stood pat on her refusal to play the part of the wife unless she played the part of the sister also, it would mean the breaking of the contract between her and Jeff and if she lost the hold on him which made him her meal ticket, she'd divorce him fast enough. And Jeff would be free to marry again. Liz read my mind as if it was an open book. "And don't get any screwy ideas sister," he said. "Avis will never let this part in technicolor gel away from her. Or Jeff ether, she- will slall and scrap and make difficulties until everybody is in an uproar, and then she'll turn up at the studio sweet and meek and ready lo go on with her part. And the contract will still hold, see. She's done it before. And she cart' sic her attorneys onto Jeff and cost him a lot of dough if he doesn't let her play Ihe part of the sister, top. You see, it's already been assigned to her." "I slill don't see what we can do about it." "I think we can fix it so that Avis will lei Jeff casl Narney in Ihe sisler parl—which is whal he really wants. And then everybody will be happy again." He paused thinking it out as he went along. "What about you inviting Art and Avis oul lo your place for a few drinks Ihis evening? I'll come along and we'll hash over Ihe scripl and make Avis think we've re-written the part of the wife for her and built it way up to here—" Liz gestured at his chin.

You see—I left her first And haven't been an angel either." I never answered that. The door of the office opened without warning and Liz Leydon oozed into the room. He ignored me ond gave Jeff a disagreeable look. "Well, you've fouled things up, haven't you." Jeff looked at him but didn't answer. He continued to look at him. It was as if he didn't see him or hear him, either. "Have I?" He said finally. "Have I?" His face changed. He goi to his feet. "It might be," he said slowly, "That I'm just salting things straightened out." "Look here, Haverson," Liz decided to be conciliatory. "You know Avis was only bluli'ing." For a moment Jeff hung on Ins heel. "Was she?" he said. "Woli, maybe she bluffed once too often. I'm tired of her pushing me around. and I'm going in do something about it." His face was ugly and stubborn and deadly. He walked past me without a word and went out and slammed the door. Hard. 1 guess it was tne way he looked thai affected me. A little chill played hide-and-seek up my spine. Liz. of course, was undisturbed by any such hypserscnsitivity. He said bluntly and matter-of-fact- ly, "Well, it's up to us."
