CLOUDY, SNOW FLURRIES WEDNESDAY VOLUME 49, NO. 230 WINONA, MINNESOTA, TUESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 15, 1949 FIVE CENTS PER COPY THERE'S NO STATIC ON KWNO-FM 97.5 MEGACYCLES SIXTEEN PAGES TODAY- Tito Only Irks Reds In Balkans By Joseph Stewart AIsop thoroughly dis- turbing conclusion was reached atj the recent Paris meeting of Amer- ican diplomats from Eastern Eur- ope. The chief purpose of the meet- ing was to canvass the possibility of the emergence of Independent, Tito-like regimes in this area. And those present at the meeting agreed, without dissent, that for the foreseeable future, there will be, and can be, no more Titos in Eastern Europe. This conclusion is disturbing for an obvious reason. It has been a basic assumption of American for- eign policy that the kremlin's grip 01. its European empire could ul- timately be loosened. And in fact, the kremlin's grip is tighter thanj ever before. The kremlin's reaction to the challenge of Titoism was given by Moscow's when it or- dered' "merciless and warned the satellite countries against "magnanimity." Bulgaria provides probably the most strik- ing example of the and this policy. WHAT HAS HAPPENED in Bui garla is no simple purge of a leader or two the better to encourage the others. Instead, there has been a total making over of the entire structure of the state and the Com- munist party. The aging, brilliant, George Domltrov, the man who de- fled Goerlng. died first in Moscow; no one. of course, knows whether his death was natural. The second to go has been Tralcho Kostov, acting premier and secretary gen- eral of the Bulgarian Communist party, universally recognized until His arrest last August as second only to Dlmitrov. Kostov must be extraordinarily tough Hi4 "immediate trial" has been repeatedly'announced, only to be postponed.

A strike was set "for midnight tonight by members of anj A.F.L. deck officers union in a dis- pute with ship operators. The ma- jor issue was rotating jobs. Government mediators made last minute efforts to avert the threat- ened walkout of the A.F.L, Mas- ters, Mates and Pilots union. The strike would not halt movement of oil Ankers and coal carrying ves- sels. As the maritime strike threaten- ed, there appeared little progress in the nation's coal dispute. But the steel industry was gradually re- turning to normal production as additional companies signed strike- ending contracts. Coal Dispute Continues The government marked time in the coal dispute. But there were lints it was ready to make some move in an attempt to effect a! settlement between the soft coal operators and John L.

Government action may be appointment of a fact rinding board by President Truman with authority to recom- mend a settlement of the six- month-old dispute. Meanwhile, the miners who were on strike for 52 days, continued digging coal. But Lewis has threatened to take them out of the pits on December 1 if settlement is not reached.

Wedged in a heap of boxes, a figured Indian blanket tossed care- lessly over her chubby form, the little girl was found by homicide detectives as the climax of an all-night neighborhood search. Nearby was a sharp, short-hand- led ax. In an incinerator a few feet away were her panties and a butcher knife. Detectives said they could not determine immediately whether she had been sexually mo- lested. Detective-Sergeants B. T. Reid and Lloyd Baughn, in charge of the Inquiry, said the man they seek lived in a house near where the body was found, but disap- peared last night, taking his cloth- ing. An all-points police bulletin set' In motion a search for him throughout the West. Officers said Linda Joyce and a granddaughter of the hunted man were almost constant playmates. But they were not together yester- day Linda was playing alone be- cause her friend had gone to a. birthday party.

Little knots I of people gathered at street corn- ers, outside a. police cordon which kept all away from the backyard where the body was found, until crime laboratory experts had com- pleted a minute examination. Because of the absence of blood in an alley behind a six-foot fence detectives believed she was killled in the yard. But they did not dis- count a theory that her slayer had tossed her limp form over the fence as he fled.
