Jewel 24-3t One great difference sets apart he Communists from all other jroups which have attachments to other lands, and brands the Communists unmistakably as enemies of the United States. The favorite political protege of he Communist propaganda is the alien "minority" If you damn the Communist as a pro-Russian you >fe a bigoted 200-per center. You hate all immigrants and all who maintain an affection for Ireland, for example. •There is no parallel here. Most Of 'the Irish immigrants and many of their progeny were ferocious against England for her oppression of Ireland But there was no question of their devotion to the United States. During the first world war, some German immigrants and their chil-j Iren ''• were suspected of disloyalty ;o this nation oesause they applied their intelligence to the issues between Germany nnd France. Very few were pro-German to the ex- tent'that they were anti-American. To get our perspecliv, we mast uride.rstarjd first that Russia is our enemy 'and that all Communists are adherents of that enemy. On treason, the constitution says it. consists of levying war against the United;. States or adhering to our enemies, giving them aid and com fort. . Those Irish and. their children who hated England did not levy war.'/against this nation, and Ireland, the country to which they gave assistance, was our friend. A few Irish did undertake to strike a blow for Ireland against England from our shores, but we called that mischief, punishable under another heading. Such mischief misht involve us in war with a friendly power sortie tim'e and the precedent, confirmed in the financing or organization of armies in the Unit ed States to fight in Spain and Palestine, is being used against us even now by Stalin. The Germans'who had come here prior to 1914. some of whom, and some of whose progeny, were caught in the problem of loyalty in the first war, were, on the whole, a fine group. Their virtues have long been recognized and to mention ] those virtues has been to antagonize some other immigrant groups who were inferior in those particulars. Politically they were a doubtful boon, being tainted with socialism. When August, 1914, befell, cur country somehow suddenly came under the spell of a vast, insensate, adolescent crush on France This was a terrible idocy because 'France herself had been an aggressor by trade, and was in efficient, quarrelsome and disorderly,-She had been asking for a return match ever since 1870, when she got a-'licking' which she deserved at. least .as well as she deserved spme : .of her past victories Our people psychologically plumped for'Franco right from the start. We also fell for the pubicily which bade us loathe the kaisei as a \yicked man because Germany repudiated her treaty with Belgium as a scrap of paper. This maae us feel virtuous,- but we forgot the nany scraps of paper we had re Dudiated'in our own relations with he Indians, and by means no less Ji'utal, time, place and military proficiency considered. Many ef our Germans, to give hem a convenient name, had bet er information about France and he French and refused to agree vith our passion. It was as thougl Insurance Firmsto Escape Tax Washington, Dec. 26 —(/P)— Secretary ot the Treasury Snyder said today nearly all life insurance companies will have no federal taxes to pay on this year's income. This results, he said in a statement, from a 1042 law which this ,year brings about the "effective removal of icderal income tax liability from insurance companies." jbnyder asked that Congress give I "immediate attention" to changing the law to prevent' a repetition of his "unavoidable result." The treasury secretary explained that the 1942 law fixes a formula for determining what portion b f net investment income life insurance companies may deduct from tax liability in order to maintain reserves for the Benefit of policy holders. This year, the formula works out so that the companies may deduct 100.66 per cent of their life insurance Invesliment income, Snyder said. "I have no alternative (under ie law) but to determine such a gure," he added. Snyder said the effect is not only o free the companies entirely from axes on income from investments f life insurance funds. They also et an additional "credit" that can used to lower their taxes on in- Wanted to Rent OR 4 ROOM UNFURNISHED apartment. ^References offered. Family of three. Phon.v 1G8.Q-J.

Penn State Coach Bob Higgins expects it. And, statistically, it's the only chance for the Mustangs. The Nittany Lions boast a ter rific paper edge over Southern Methodist, both in defense and offense. Only in the air have the un beaten, once tied Mustangs an edge. The Mustangs haven't a spectac ular aerial record. On 134 attempted passes, 74 were- completed for 921 yards. But most of tnem paid off. • Passing won the UCLA, Texas and Texas A. & M. games for the Mustangs, salvaged a tie with Texas Christian and made the Bay lor score respectable. In the only games of the season in which Matty Bell's sharp-shoot ers really cut loose, the result was amazing. Against Texas A. & M.

Cleaners Seven Perish in Texas Hotel Fire Orange, Tex., Dec. 26 — (^P) — Seven persons perished in the flame-swept halls and rooms of a small hotel last midnight while six other guests jumped from windows to safety. Only five of the seven dead had been identified early today. Nineteen persons were registered but only 13 wre in the hotel when the blaze broke out. The identified dead were listed as Junious Q. Carter, from Pennsylvania, city not available; W. L. Jordon, 41, Tampa, Fia.; Bill Douglas, 35, address unknown, and Ralph Slade, 72, and Early Gisler, 43, both of Orange. . The bodies, of a man and a wom-i an had not been identified. • Three of the bodies were found in halls and four in rooms. All' were in sleeping garments. Assistant Fire Chief E. L. Barker estimated damage to the building and furnishings at $50,000. One of the seven was alive when found by firemen, but died on the way to a hospital. Mrs. Liska Sikcs, owner of the hotel, said 19 persons were living at the hotel, including herself. Mrs. bikes was in Lake Charles La when the fire started but returned here as soon as she was notified. The blaze started around 11:45 p. m. and was discovered by a taxicab driver.

Little Rock, Dec. 26 — (ff) —The 1947 Arkansas strawberry crop brought producers $4,376,000 — an all-time high, the federal-state crop reporting service said today. The 1946 income was $4,095,000 and the 1947 production was 28 percent above 1946. The value of commercial truck crops grown for fresh market and processing in Arkansas in 1947 was $4,153,000, only about half of the estimated value of these crops in 946. The decline in value was attribut- d mostly to lower prices for most resh market crops and to both ower prices and a sharp reduction i prodaction for processing crops. Tomato production for fresh mar:et was about 18 per cent less than n 1946. A fairly good crop was arvested in the "green wrap" rea of Monticello and in the 'pink" area of adjoining Bradley minty.

The fact that her emmity lung was ignored and only lately was acknowledged by our own government does not alter the fact that the Soviet government has been actively hostile to us for 30 years. It was our enemy even during the recent great war. It infested our country with a plague of spies when American generals were not allowed to visit tne Russian fronts It sabotaged our industrial war preparations during the Hitler-Stalin alliance. The record need not be reviewed in detail. The fact to be emphasized is the fact of Russia's hostility. This is the groundwork for proof of treason by those Americans who adhere to communism, which is but the political war program of Soviet Russia. The infestation is worst in New York. It is dangerous in Hollywood and Washington and m ihe C I. p It is active in groups which receive and pay money to notorious Communist propagandists in the guise of lecturers on Poland and Palestine. It would be pathetic if 'we had to rely on the dictum of Francis nidlc, late attorney general oi f United Slates, that communism is inimical. By a thousand testimonials of better authorities that implacable hostility was proved in our own congressional hearings anc reports and in confessional warnings ol sell-accusing apostates Bid- ctle s official opinion is wlecome merely as corroboration.

State By WILL GRIMSLEY New York, Dec. 26 — (ff) — The "ootball bowls have grown into an expansive, $2,000,000 business, but the older, established events still carry the big part of the load'. An Associated Press survey shows that sponsors of the 16 renaming postseason gridiron parties are looking for a total turnout of around 534,UOO customer.-, who will toss approximately $2,097,000 nto the vauojs tills.. But more than half the. fans — i 329,200—are expected to attend the "Big Five" of New Year's Day ex- :ravaganzas — the Rose, Sugar, Orange and Cotton Bowls and the East-West shrine game. These attractions, too, are slated to get about two-thirds of the cash. The Rose Bowl at Pasadena, :alif.—daddy of them all—is assured a capacity flock of 93,000 fans who will lork over something like $400,000. The Sugar Bowl at New Orleans has its 72,000. seating places already asked for, portending a gate of $360,000. The Orange Bowl at Miami expects 58.700 to pay $300, OCO while the Cotton Bowl at Dallas has its budget figured on $205, 000, representing an attendance of 45.500. The Shrine's East-West Ail-Star game at San Francisco is expected to draw the day's third largest crowd—60,000—but only the fifth largest intake—$200,000 — because its tickets are scaled lower. Two of the freshman bowls, the Dixie at Birmingham and the Delta •at Memphis—are looking forward to $150,000 and $110,000 gates, respectively, which would put them right on the rim of major league classification. Other figures: Dixie Bowl, Birmingham — Wil liam and Mary vs. Arkansas (35, 000) $150,000. Cigar Bowl, Tampa, Fla.—Westchester (Pa.) Teachers vs. Missouri Valley (16,700) $32,000.

Washburn Armory No. 1 Need in National Guard Recruiting Drive Right now the National Guard is conducting a recruiting drive from coast to coast in support of our jAesent voluntary defense program. Hut the National Guard in Hope operates under a distinct handicap. Always it has been the tradition of National Guard units to furnish not only military instruction but to serve as social centers ior thousands of young men and their friends. From one end of America to another the National Guard is known as "the poor man's country club." But to be a social center you first have to have a house—or arm- Oiy, in the parlance of the Guard. The Hempslead county Ciuard has no armory. Obviously the boys aren't going to be in a rusli to join up with an outfit whose prospects are all work' and no play. America has always carried on her national defense program in peacetime as a leisure- hour business—and that's where the social angle has been, for generations, the National Guard's strongest inducement in recruiting'young men. gHope has been trying to get a permanent armory building lor 20 years, but always the issue seems to have completely evaded governors and legislatures and the state military departmucnj,. Today there never was greater need ior an armory, when the National Guard wants it to help support the nation's voluntary defense plans— for if you are going to ask young men to divide part of their free time with the military you are going to have to give them adc- .fjpate training quarters and at the same time let them use those training quarters ior the social activities that Guard work has been associated with for years.

Typhoon To!! in Philippines Reaches 49 Manila, Dec. 27 — (ff)— The toll of dead and missing — including 32 of he ho 61 persons who were aboard sunk motorship Jina — stood By JAMES THRASHER Same Symptoms, Different Remedies If we lived under a Soviet-type "democracy," we should be told that Russia's devaluation of the ',$lfable signals the collapse of communism. Obviously that is not the case. Still, the Russian monetary shuttle is of interest. For it shows that when totally different economic systems are subjected to the same external forces, the reactions are the same. Only the remedies differ. The Russian government's explanation of its anti-inflation program tells a familiar story. Military spendiing during the war put a,lot oi.iresh money,-in civcula- i$bn. Military production cut down oh goods and services for civilians. Essentials were rationed, and their prices controlled. But the pressure of much money "' and few goods brought about the "commercial" market. This seems to have operated much like ' our black market, though it was legal in Russia. And the effects were even worse. The government admits officially that prices of some goods were 10 to 15 times the prewar figure. ^Besides these war-born influences, the Soviet government had to contend with a woefully un- Marxian factor—the natural cupidity of most human beings. Since there are only about 6,000,000 Communists among some 200,000,000 Soviet citizens, it isn't surprising that there were people who yielded to the temptation of making a little side money. So the government made a drastic move to soak the rich (by Soviet standards) speculators. It also soak- yil those who were merely thrifty. All loose money is being called in and redeemed at a tenth of its face value. Even the government's own bonds are devaluated by two- thirds. Of course, the Kremlin couldn't do all this without slipping in a little propaganda—and false, at that. "The currency reform in capitalist countries," the government statement said, "is accomplished by large increases in the prices art consumer goods, and consequently by a decrease in the real wages of workers and employes. . . and an increase in the army of the unemployed." This capitalist country, like Russia, has had large increases in prices and a decrease in real wages. But it hasn't had an increase in unemployment. And what has happened to prices and wages is no more a result of currency reform here than it is in Russia. Actually, those factors are the cause of Russia's currency reform, as the statement admitted elsewhere. The Russian reform will probably do the job it sets out to, and efficiently, since there is no opposition that dares object to its highhanded methods. But the Soviet government evidently recognized that there was considerable injustice in its efficiency, and so threw in an end of rationing of food and industrial goods as a sort of consolation prize. That may be a popular move. But Ut is noteworthy that the government said nothing about an increase in production of farm or factory. So the Soviet citizen is likely to find that the end of inflation only means the loss of most of his savings and, new ruble or old, the same low standard of living that he is stuck with today.

Press reports listed all killed ai Laguna, where an entire family was blown into Laguna De Bay with their house; five in Manila and one in Cavite. There 'was no word of casualties in other sections traversed by the 120-mile-an-hour storm, but communications still were so disrupted that days may pass before a com pi etc check is possible. The bureau of posts reported telegraphic communication with only five provincial cities had been reestablished and that 15 of its radio transmitters were out.

The company, agents for the Kina, made the report after an exchange of messages with the mo- torship Samuel Ba,kke, anchored at Calbayog. Samar island. The Bakke earlier had ' erroneously reported that all but five aboard the [Cina had reached shore, then messaged a correction. Chief Officer F.L.W. Dalberg of the Kina reported, the company said, a total of 12 passengers and 17 crew members were safe. Capt. Aage Hjernum, 30 other crewmen and one passenger were listed as missing/ Dalberg and four of the crewmen were landed at Calbayog after being picked up at sea by the Bakke. The other survivors were reported to have reached Dinalio Point, north of Calbayog, in lifeboats. Planes and tugs continued their search for others from the Kina, who attempted to ride out the typhoon in lifeboas or on pieces of wreckage. The East Asiatic Co. estimated the Kina was worth $2,000,000 and said that because of tis speed of 17 knots, the motorship ran the Atlantic throughout the war without benefit of convoy. The typhoon, with winds which rose to 120 miles an hour, uprooted trees, falltened power and telephone lines and blew off roofs in Manila, where five persons were killed and at least 20 injured.

DAVIDSON Jerusalem, Dec. 27 — (#>) —The spluttering war of hatred in Palestine brought death today to four Jews and six Arabs, raising to 379 the number of fatalities since partition was announced a month ago. Throughout the Middle East 'iOO lives have been lost since Nov. 29. Police said the Jewish underground force, Hagana, made a reprisal raid on the Arab village of Silwan on the slope of the Mount of Olives. One Arab was killed and two were wounded. Five houses were destroyed. A second Arab was found dead later on the village outskirts. Hapana clashed again with ten armed Arabs in the border area between Jewish Tel Aviv and Arab Jaffa. An Arab was official report said an found dead later on a nearby track. Arabs attacked a Jewish childrens home in the fashionable Katamon quarter of Jerusalem with revolvers and grenades, but police announced no casualties. Police reports said two Jews were killed defending a pipe line from Arab attackers on the Negrev region in southern Palestine. Brit- sh police and troops broke up the battle. The "government said that since Dec. 1, police had received reports of 316 persons killed -..in Jewish- Arab clashes. Four were missing, 270 were injured seriously and 474 wounded in lesser degree of the dead, 125 were Jews, 162 Arabs and the rest soldiers, police and foreigners. The Associated Press tabulation Cor the same period showed 379 dead. The difference was due apparently to the practice of Arab snipers, who frequently hide their victims from authorities. The government announcement stressed that casualties were only those reported to police. ~**t Testing a new human pickup in Pittsburgh, Pa., daredevil Bernie Cain is whisked through the air and pulled into the plane.
