Abilene Reporter News (Newspaper) - January 18, 1954, Abilene, Texas CLOUDY, COOL0bflcne SorterMDRMNG VOL. LXXllI, No. 216 Russian Ax Falls Again LONDON. Jan. 17    (.?i _ The Kremlin widened it.s purge in the troublesome republic of Georgia today and pointedly warned that a similar fate might lie ahead for the nationalist-minded Ukraine Latest to come under the av in Georgia was Vilian Zozelava. first ileputy premier of the Black Sea birth site of Joseph Stalin and Lavrenty P. Beria. the police czar who was executed as a traitor. A broadcast from the Georgian c.apital of Tbilisi (Tiflis) merelv R.iid Zodrlava had been “relieved of his dutie.s” and that i\I. I. Kiich-ava has been given his job. But it appeared to be the latest chanter in the purge tnat began in Georgia after Stalin’s death and v as stepped up with Beria's downfall. Warns of Nationalists At the same time the Ukraine’s new rrcmier, Nikifor Kalchenko. warned against “attempts bv bourgeois nationalists to break down and destroy the inalienable right of the Ukrainian and Russian peoples" Kalchrnko’s appointment as re-m:« r was announced only yesterday. along with two other major | changes in the government of the i U^kraine—breadbasket of the So- ; Viet Union, His statement, carried i bv rhe government newspaper Iz- ! vestía and Mo.scow radio, combined a plea for unity with an implied warning for those who do not comply. “The great achievements of friend>hip between the great people of Russia and the Ukraine bril-1 lianily and convincingly unmask j the anti-national nature of hour- j geois nationali.stic distortions in i the Ukraine’s historic unification ! wth Russia.” Kalchenko wrote. “They bear witness to the futility of attempts by bourgeois nationalists to break down and destroy the inalienable union of the f Ukrainian and Rus.sian peoples a'id all other peonies of the Soviet Union."    j Overrun by Germans    j The Ukraine —long an uneasy spot for the Kremlin rulers, was ¡ overrun bv the Germans in World War II and thousands reportedly went o\er to the German side. The latest changes in Georgia and the Ukraine came on the heels of reports that Premier Geoigi .Malenkov had made a personal four of the republics to see how things were going. There was no hint whether his visit had any connections with the shakeups. which were handled in routine fashion without fanfare by the Soviet radio and press. It was .Malenkov who launched the purge in Georgia and intensified it in the showdown with Rer-1.1. Rena was accused of trying to increase his ixiwer in Georgia bv .ippointing friends and follower« to kev snots.

Jan. 17 Sen. Knowland iR-Calif) predicted to-da.v that Congress will “closely scrutinize” President Eisenhow'-er’s proposal to share more information about nuclear weapon.s with Allied nations. The Senate Republican leader told a reporter h e would decide his own position after learning the specific changes the administration wants in the present atomic energy law. Several other members of the Senate- House Atomic Energy Committee said they do not oppose the idea of sharing atomic information but they want to know the details before committing themselves. Urges Ease The President, in his state of the union message, urged Congress to ease the present rigid restrictions on giving atomic information to foreign powers. "Our defense.” he said. “wiH be stronger if, under appropriate security .safeguards, we share with our allies certain knowledge of the tactical use of our nuclear weapon.s.’’ Rep. W. Sterling Cole (R-NYL chairman of the Atomic Energy Committee, said he has prodded the administration for quicker action on specific legislation to carry out the President’s idea. Cole said he had told administration officials that, unless they send a bili to Congress next week, he will introduce one of his own in order to get committee hearings underway as quickly as possible. “They’ve been talking about this for more than a year" Cole said. “But all they've done is talk.” Competent sources say the keep-ihem-posted proposal lies at the heart of Eisenhower's new strategy of building up nuclear striking power so that ground forces can be reduced.

A spokesman in the airlines operations office said Sunday night no Talks Will Open In Berlin Jon. 25 BERLIN, Jan. 17 (AP)—The Western Big Three and Russia agreed tonight, after 10 days of wrangling, on a formula for holding a four-power conference on German unity and an Austrian independence treaty. The agreement, reached after hot arguments that had to be referred to the respective canitals for adjudication, guaranteed opening of the parley in Berlin on Jan. 25. Identical communiques issued by each of the four powers after more than 50 hours of»—-—   ~ - deliberations disclosed that both the East and the West made concessions. Favored Their Sector The Russians had demanded that half the meetings be held in their sector of the quartered city. The Western Powers had wanted three-fourths of the talks to be held in the former Allied Control Authority building in the American sector.
