The choice will be between Rep- resentative John A Hartle of Owa- tonna, a house member lor 14 years, and Representative Ed Chilgren, Littlefork newspaper publisher, who the Soviet com- mand in Ger- many with the German com- munists. What makes the letter Interesting Is the fact that it was signed by Wil- helm Pieck and Otto Groiewohl. Pieck is a lifetime communist, who took part in the Spartacist re- volt In 1919. Grotewohl is a rene- gade Socialist, who sold out to the over Representative Lawrence Haeg of rural Hennepin county by a 47- 31 ballot, the second taken by the conservatives to settle a four-way contest. Representatives A. F. O'Berg, Lindstrom, and Aubrey Dirlan, Red- wood Falls, the other candidates in the conservatives' race, withdrew with Haeg after the second ballot. _ .The speaker post was left open has a record of 24 years service in, when Representative Lawrence Hall the house.

They are their man against the needed 66. Chilgren defeated Representative ored Socialist Unity party, in real- Sty the So-.iet zone's Communist party. There were four other sign- ers as well as Pieck and Grotewohl, all important but subordinate Ger- man communists.

Negev Desert Russia Abstains From Voting On Proposition Paris (IF) A security council committee approved today a plan apparently intended to demilitarize virtually all of southern Palestine's Negev desert. The United States, Britain, China, Prance, Belgium and Colombia sup- ported the plan, submitted by the FOR THE GERMAN communists begged Sokolovsky to end the block- ade of Berlin. They stated flatly that the blockade was underminini the German communist movement by turning the German masses against both the Socialist fatherlanc and the German communist party Discipline within the party was more difficult to maintain, and the party was daily losing previously loyal adherents. German commun- ists were good communists, the six wrote, but they were also Germans Sokolovsky's response was 'une- quivocal. Piecfc and Grotewohl were hauled on the carpet and charged "narrow -nationalism" and "deviationism." They were allowed to retain their positions, perhaps because their purging would have created an unwelcome uproar. But they were warned that no repeti- tion of such insubordination would be tolerated. And to force the point home, the four lesser communists were carted off to Jail. Taken alone, this episode is signi- ficant enough. But what makes it more -Interesting is the fact that it Is not an isolated incident. For within the last few days evidence has been obtained that Moscow is having very similar difficulties with the high command of the French Communist party. EARLY THIS SUMMER, as first reported in this space, burly, ham- fisted Maurice Thorez, leader of the French communists, was hailed be- fore a communist kangaroo court on orders from Moscow and charg- ed with "excessive nationalism." At the time, Thorez performed the usual communist rite of public re- pentance and confession of sins. Since then, however, there have been reports that Moscow's troubles with Thorez were not over. According to these reports, Thorez has been intriguing within the French communist party to split his very considerable personal fol- io wing away from Moscow's con- trol, and to head a national French communist party more or less on the Tito model. The nature of the sources of these reports, within the French party, has cast doubt on Owner Wins Car Back From Dog Des John Murphy has repossessed his car from a big dog.

The dog snarled so savagely that Murphy took a hasty glance at the registration certificate to make sure that he had brought home the right automobile. He had. Russia Assails U. S.

The Negev desert, originally as- signed to the Jews under the United Nations partition plan of a year ago, has been the scene recently of fighting which resulted in Israeli victories over the Egyptians. Count Folke Bernadotte, the assassinated mediator, recommended before his death that the Negev be given to Arab Palestine. Dr. Philip C. Jessup of the United States was the first member of the seven-nation committee to express his approval of today's Bunche plan. Other committee members, except Jacob A.
