Winona Republican-Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1949, Winona, Minnesota SNOW TONIGHT, THURSDAY THERE'S NO STATIC ON KWNO-FM 97.5 MEGACYCLES VOLUME 49, NO. 237 WINONA, MINNESOTA, WEDNESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 23, 1949 FIVE CENTS PER COPY TWENTY PAGES TODAY- Europe on 1910 Basis Proposed By Joseph and Stewart Alsop Secretary of State Dean Acheson and E.G.A. Chief Paul Hoffman returned from their respective trips to Europe, it has become Increasingly clear; that American policy in Europe revolves about, one magic word. I This word is "Integration." And it is about time to inquire what this word really means to Ache- son. Hoffman, and the other Amer- ican policy-makers. A groper through the fog which more and more obscures Ameri- can foreign policy soon discovers that "integration" is thr wrong word. To integrate, according to the dictionary, means "to unite or become united so as to form a more complete or perfect which would suggest that this country is trying to create a Unit- ed States of Europe overnight. In fact, what Acheson and Hoff- man arc trying to promote is noth- ing of the sort. The real objective, as one of the authors of the in- tegration project put it, is "to get back to 1910 by 1952." What the United States wants is a Europe whose internal trading relation- ships arc as close as possible to those which existed before the first world war.

Byrnes might be laying the ground work for an anti-Truman organiza- tion with his attacks on the Pres- ident's "fair deal." Some officials on the administra- tion's side repeated reports that a movement may be under way to form such a group.

Chinese Reds Rule Consul Beat Workers Prison Sentences For Diplomat, Aides Suspended Washinjrton Angus Ward, the American consul general at (Mukden, has been released from jail by the Chinese communists and ordered out of the country. The communists also released lour consulate aides who were jailed with Ward October 24 on what the State department called "trumped up" charges of beating and insulting two Chinese in a wage dispute. The department announced today that it tod received word of the releases from Ward himself. It was the first direct word from the con- sul general in a month. In winding up what the depart- ment has denounced as their "bar- baric" treatment of Ward, the com- munists gave him a trial before a "people's court." Tills court found them all guilty and meted out varying prison sen- tences. Then the sentences were commuted to deportation. Message Received Ward, 56-year-old veteran diplo- mat, made his report In a telephone conversation with American Consul 'General O. Edmund Clubb at Pei- iping. Clubb rushed the information I to Washington, I Ward said the other four men and he were "up and about." The State department instructed Clubb to tell Ward "that he and ois entire staff are to deport from Mukden forthwith." The four jailed with Ward Ealph KeHberg, of Rochester, N.

There was no explanation here as to what kind of transportation from (Mukden might be given the con- sulate staff.

Acheson asked the 30 nations to express their concern to the I Chinese communists. Official hopes for their early re- lease were based on (1) Prece- dents In communist eastern Eur- ope where American officials and others have been charged with such crimes as spying and then expelled and (2) The belief that the Chinese communists have won all the domestic propaganda ad- vantages they can hope for.
