Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1950, Winona, Minnesota COLDER, LIGHT SNOW TONIGHT WINONA, MINNESOTA, WEDNESDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY KWNO-FM fops In Radio Entertainment EIGHTEEN PAGES Strength Held Best Peace Weapon TODAY- Timetable Of Soviets Speeded By Joseph and Stewart ALsop The evidence is In- creasing daily that the Soviet time table has moved into a new phase. As one authority puts the krem- lin has now passed the point thatj Hitler passed with the reoccupa- tlon of the Rhineland. The krem- lln is now beginning the phase of accelerated preparatory action of picking off the exposed salients before attacking the main positions Hitler began with the inva- sion of Austria. AH the kremlin's bluff and blust- er of the last four years have only served to conceal the central real- ity, which has been the active, in- tensive build-up of Soviet military strength. The new phase is now opening, just as It did in Hitler's case, because the rearmament ef- fort has begun to produce, solid results. Hence the kremlin Is en- couraged, Just as Hitler was, to take larger measures and to run greater risks. A. GREAT DEAL of pure non- gense has been talked and written on this head, mainly to the effeci that the Soviet Union has enjoyed dominant military power ever since the end of the second world In point of fact, however from the end of the war until this year, the Soviet Union had no atomic bomb, no air defense what- ever, and no solid Industrial base. The Western confederation, on the the other hand, possessed atom- ic bombs. Despite demobilization, the Western confederation also re- tained the strategic air power to deliver these bombs to the unde- fended cltiM of Russia. This situa- tion'WftS a decisive deterrent as long as It lasted. But this situation has now been liquidated by Soviet rearmament. As Secretary for Air Stuart Sym- ington pointed out In his courage- ous and Illuminating Texas speech, the kremlin has not merely over- come all the difficulties listed above. It has also built up the greatest air force and submarine fleet In the world, to supplement the red army's strength. THE KREMLIN'S planners are Justified in deriving a glowing new self-confidence from their revolu- 25-Cent Egg Support Price to Be Continued Washington Already swamped by eggs, the govern- ment will continue through March to support the prices the fanner gets for eggs at 25 cents a dozen. The Department of Agricol- tnrc announced yesterday that it alsu will maintain its prices for dried eggs at 96 cents a pound. The department now owns worth of eggs it doesn't know what to do with, and an official commented re- gretfully, "hens are laying their fool heads off." Under the egg support pro- gram, the government buys eggs at 75 per cent of price established as fair to both egg producers and eggr eaters. In the past two years, the government has accumulated about 000 pounds of dried eggs which nobody seems to want. Russ Spy Activity Mounting in U. S. undercover activity in the United States- was reported today at an all-time high. The report came from a lawmaker familiar with evidence on the Klaus Fuchs case which FJBJ. Director J, Edgar Hoover has been plac- ing before Congress. Hoover, seeking enough, funds for at least 300 more G-men, was said to have told a Senate appropriations subcommittee there are -------------------------------------------communists and fellow travelers in this country, of them card- Girl Acquitted In Slaying of Stricken Father carrying party members.

Paris Western Europe wants private American investors to take up where U. S. govern- ment aid tapers off toward the end of the Marshall plan In 1952. In a survey of the progress of the Marshall plan at the half-way mark, the European member areas yesterday discussed their needs for the final two years of the aid program. Private invest- ment is needed to keep their eco- nomies stable after TJ. S. stops, the report said. The report estimates these coun- tries will need from 000 to during the fin- al two-year period to carry out their plans. This compares with already given by the U. S. for the first two years of the plan.

Officials here say these involve two specific leaks of atomic Information to here In 1945 and the other In Bri- tain In 1947. The German-born, 38-year-old scientist came to this country in 1943 as a member of a top British atomic team. He remained in the United States until 1946. Senator Ferguson (B.-Mich.) dis- closed last night that he is asking Attorney General McGrath to try to extradite Fuchs from Britain for trial before an American court. He said such procedure would provide- the "best deterrent" to atomic espionage in the United States. Two Indiana Republicans said the Truman administration must bear a large share of the responsi- bility if there are as many com- munists in the country as Hoover reportedly said. K. U. M.

The new bargaining sessions were set for this afternoon with tne board members sitting In as Ob- the exception of Greece and west- ern Germany which have needed extra sums to keep them going, Marjolin predicted that Western Europe will be paying for three- fourths of its American Imports with Its own exports and services by 1952. He said, however, that they may have to cut down on planned 1m-, ports from the TJnlted States in or- close the dollar gap unless large scale private American In- vestments are made to cover the predicted 25 per cent deficit be- tween imports and exports. The gap is expected to amount to over In 1952. The survey, compiled by a com- Carol Ann Paight Bridgeport, Conn.

Lewis once Two Men Rob Phoenix Bank Acheson Cites Futile Efforts For Arms Checks No New Overtures To Moscow Planned On Atomic Weapons Washington Secretary of State Acheson today ruled out any new overtures to Russia on inter- national control of atomic wea- pons, including the hydrogen super- bomb. Acheson also said the United States should avoid what he called self reproach in connection with atomic weapons. He said this might paralyze American action Ln developing a strong American policy. The secretary's remarks were made in a news conference dis- cussion of U. S. policy. He told newsmen that if this country can reach its goal of world peace by the process of agreement ;hat will be the best way to do it. he added, "four years of trying have brought us to the rea- lization that Is not possible." Acheson spoke directly in com- menting on recent Senate speeches jy Chairman McMahon (D.-Conn.) of the congressional Atomic Energy commission and Chairman Tydings (D.-Md.) of the Senate armed serv- ices committee. McMahon proposed a five-year, American crusade for peace, including International control of atomic energy. Tydings urged that President Truman call a. world conference for disarma- ment.
