Hkli2 believe tyranny is a Wayto collapse berliners Are Bent on revolt from Dou las brass Derlin june 28 revolt in Eastern Berlin a fill come again. Sooner or later unrest will Bubble Forth again into resistance which is not As it is just now passive. That is what they confidently Tell you Here in this strange Island of a City whose Eastern half is still barred off by German Rifle men and russian tanks. This the free berliners Eay. Is the beginning of the end. The events of the last 10 Days have pointed the Way surely to the col lapse of the Eastern tyranny. Are confident t his View is held by Many Western Allied officials Here As Well As by the Jubil ant West German authorities. In West Berlin s lofty City Hall where professor Reu Ter the chief burgomaster has held court and kept Faith All through these mad Post War years they give you solid arguments apparently based on reliable in formation from across the Frontier in support of their confident belief that Malenkos Jand Grotewohl and company have had if in Eastern Germany. One View is fairly general Here in this Western listen ing Post. It is that the russians when it suits them will sacrifice the pieces Grotewohl and Ulbricht the communist party leaders with a cynic Cal disregard for services rendered. Moscow s line i Berlin believes that mos cow is set firmly on its new line of Cooling the International temperature for its own purposes of course and that the Berlin riots of june 17 will not make it waver in the slightest. The russians still have troops and tanks in Berlin. But they Are clearly anxious to quieten things Down As quickly As possible and to pull out and leave matters to Ulbricht s people s police it is not at All inconceivable that a War could have started in Berlin last week if the russians had let their hair Down and started shooting up the City. The fact that the risk was kept in tight Check and that Moscow has now dictated a policy of conces Sions to the workers encourage the belief that there Are much bigger stakes than Berlin in the present East West game. 10 injured in smash ten people including.

Big development needed in final two Day s play has England s team resources to pull 2nd test out of fire London june 28 England s Hopes of winning the test at lord s ran High for a while yesterday. Then once More came a breakdown in the Middle Register of batting. It will need a develop ment Over the final two Days beyond English re sources so far noticed if the match is to be won. A. Draw May Well be beyond her. I the australian attack on his dry slowly wearing pitch seems More versatile my better fitted to make Jse of it and England j just Bat last. We saw test Cricket at its toughest yesterday morning. Che australians evidently decided that the first hours May would be crucial and hey put everything into it. Telling blow in his opening Over Lind Vall bowled Graveney with i Ball which was either a porker or. Near enough de scribed As one. Anyway it meant such a lot both ways. Graveney had batted like \ True test batsman and o get rid of him yesterday before he settled Down was i i telling blow. Importance of it was not Only the Dis Missal of a Fine batsman but the fact that it brought Compton in to face the new Ball from the moment the Battle became fierce. Lindwall bowled at his fastest and Miller neglected finesse completely in favour j of the More Normal weapons i of a fast Bowler. Compton and Hutton were subjected to a test of courage with real Pace at both ends but they held on grimly despite some narrow escapes and a few bruises. Did t falter i admired Compton s de termination even More than his skill. Pate had not smiled on him during his last australian tour and a Duck at Nottingham added to a rather agonising run of Low test match scores. With that background the desire to erase the memory of pre Vious failures and the Des Perate need to make runs for England he never faltered. I remember vividly the trouble Denis had in 1948 with bumpers. Somehow he could not avoid getting into what we Call no Man s land in a Long talk we discussed this subject and t propounded to him the theory i still hold. The safest Way to negotiate a bumper on the slumps or leg Side is to move inside the line of flight. Yesterday he did just that and looked All the better for it. The partnership brought 102 invaluable runs. Irrespective of runs it was a feat to survive Tiit period. Had one of them faltered England could have been out within an hour. If that appears a rash state ment the answer is Plain to see by what happened after lunch when six wickets fell at one stage for 54 runs of which Brown made 22 by a do or die Effort. The pitch again revealed occasional uncertainty in the Bounce which was to some extent a mental Hazard for the batsman. Tide turned pull Marks to Hutton and Compton. They paved the Way which regrettably was not followed by their Succes sors. The tide was first turned by Bill Johnston Bowling spinners to three Short leg Fields men. Johnston always looked More dangerous with his close leg Field. Of All play ers to fall to it. I least expected Hutton to be the Man for he was negotiating the danger with relative ease. The Ball before his dismissal had nearly decapitated Hole and for that reason alone Hole s catch ing of Hutton was the More meritorious. Left a Gap England s dependence on Hutton was quickly revealed. Upon his dismissal one end looked open and when Benaud beat Compton with a Fine leg spinner both ends were open. Pent up feelings of the crowd were let Loose when Wardle off drove taller to the Fence giving England n first innings Lead. It was a magnificent drive in the Hammond manner and showed that fast bowlers can be driven if batsmen am prepared to try. Once More Lindwall deservedly emerged with the Bowling honours. After throwing everything into the morning session he came up for More and narrowly missed the hat trick. Quick wicket when Australia opened there were portents of aggressive intent which were Cut Short by the dismissal of Hassett who was adjudged caught behind on the leg Side. I heard the sound and whether the subsequent Atti tude of the players indicated some doubt about it or merely gave expression to Surprise at such a Quick wicket i Don t know. Toward the end of the Day we saw an innings by Miller containing his usual six but. More than that some beautifully executed shots and Calm certainty of control Over his Bat which for bodes ill to the Fielding Side should he resume in the same Frame of mind to Morrow. Morris had to fight hard for his runs but is still there a rather discomforting thought for England s bowl ers who must somehow make a last minute Effort if the initiative is to be regained. I lotion in whole or part forbidden. Miller the menace p. 8. Not asked for report on team from Tom Goodman t Ondon june 28 a the australian Cricket ers arc upset Over suggestions from Sydney that the australian Board of control Mihr ask team Mana Ger George Davies for a special report on the players conduct. Or. Davies says he has not had a request from the Board for a special report and he sees no occasion to make one. The players feel that the team s executive could Deal with cases of excessive drinking or Loose living if necessary but they ridicule j reports apparently by people not associated with the team that such behaviour exists.

Above the Large Mellow Brick House fluttered the prime minister s Flag the red purple and Gold Standard of the lord Warden of the Cinque ports. Fatigue from the exacting engagements of the last few months has forced the prime minister on of his doctors to rest for at least a month. Sir Winston had a comfortable night and continues to rest a bulletin from his doctors said to Day. His personal physician lord Moran staved overnight at Chartwell and saw him this morning. The Bermuda big three talks for which sir Winston was to have left in the battleship Vanguard on tuesday Are off temporarily this was announced 25 Miles away in London after president Eisenhower and the new French Premier m. Laniel Hod been consulted. I president Eisenhower Laid in a message to sir Vinston that he re added the postponement of he big three meeting As my a temporary defer nent there was no ques Ion of cancelling the con Terence As far As is known he is lot suffering from any complaint.

He Felt tired and decided to rest for a few class before boarding the Vanguard to go to Bermuda. But yesterday a medical Lepoint signed by lord Moran and sir Russell brain a neurologist with a world wide reputation said the prime minister has had no respite for a Long time from his very arduous duties and is in need of a Complete rest. We have therefore advised him to abandon his journey to Bermuda and to lighten his duties for at least a month did not die sir Winston s health save Rise to concern in april of last year when he was con fined to Chartwell with a heavy cold. But he quickly threw it off. Earlier that year Rumour of his illness was so persistent that he had to Issue a denial. In february 1950, it was reported that he had died. In typically churchillian fashion the prime minister then announced this is quite untrue during the second world War sir Winston had three serious attacks of pneumonia. He quashed a Churchill is dead Rumour in 1944 by quoting Mark Twain s immortal words that the Story was grossly exaggerated. Three years later he had in operation for hernia. Heavy Burden it is doubtful whether any prime minister whatever his age and Constitution could have borne. Such burdens As sir Winston has done recently without his health be ing impaired. O for months now he has been doubling the Job of prime minister and foreign Secretary and. On top of All this he has had the Corona Tion the accompanying non Stop ceremonies and functions the Commonwealth prime ministers conference and has had to be Host Clay and night to a great array of visiting statesmen.
