Browning Photograph
The Star is indebted to John
Browning, operator of the Cape
Fear Studio, for the photograph
of leading personalities attend
ing the dedication of the City
Recreation Center, from which
the halftone on Page One of
Saturday’s issue was made.
Credit for the photo was inad
vertantly omitted from the
mind. The brass of the headlights
and the leather and plush of the
seats delighted them. And the
horns, those old bold stentorian
“ah-oo-gah” gadgets with the
down-pressure buttons and the
flared speakers, enchanted the
Burgawians in a manner which
would have brought the red flush
of envy to the cheeks of the Pied
Piper of Hamlin, Pan, and Benny

Burgawian ostensibly had a good
reason for extending the reverse
invitation to the “Pathfinders.”
“Git our o’ here,” he soared.
“You’re disturbin’ by cows!”
Which was true enough. The
Burgawian’s cows, usually so con
tented with their peaceful Pender
county pasture, were in fine fet
tle inded. One glance at the “Path
finders’ ” cars with their shocked
eyes, one whiff of the smoke and
fumes with their delicate nostrils,
one sound of the muttering motors
and clashing clutches on their
fragile ears, and the Pender
county cows began to behave like
bulls driven out of a Mexican bull
ring into a Cape Fear china shop.
As far as we know, the story
ends here. We guess maybe the
"Pathfinders,” gentlemen that
they were, granted the Burgaw
farmer’s request and came back
to Wilmington.
What we’re wondering about is
whether that farmer ever got con

engine and bought himself a
tractor, and, if so, whether the

Rifle fire also came from the
crowd, but it was believed no one
was struck by those bullets.
Six American Military policemen,
one British soldier, one British of
ficer, an American Associated
Press photographer and 12 civilians
were wounded by the hand grenade.
The photographer, Daniel Jacino,
was in the jeep, which was driven
by Gary Stindt, of Irvington, N. J.,
a newsreel photographer for Metro
Goldwyn-Mayer. Jacino, who was
struck in the foot by a steel splint
er, was the only one in the jeep
who was injured.
Twenty-one of the 22 men wound
ed by the grenade were taken to a
hospital, where attaches said that
all wounds were from grenade frag
ments and none from bullets.
Three of the American soldiers
were returned to duty in the af
ternoon. Three others—Pfc Edward
Jaftrenski, Grand Rapids, Mich.;
Cpl. Conrad B. McMahon, Hickory,
N. C.. and Pvt. Frank Mortimer,
Brookfield, Pa.,—were confined to
their quarters after medical treat
ment. None of them were reported
seriously injured.
Civilians Injured
Military authorities said that a
number of demonstrators in the
crowd were wounded by the fire
of the police and the Americans,
but that the number could not be
determined because they were
taken to their homes instead of
to hospitals.
Police jumped into the crowd as
soon as the grenade was thrown
and hauled out two men. A British
officer announced later that one
had been definitely identified as
the man who threw the grenade.
He was said to be a pro-Yugoslav
resident of Trieste. His name was

they cried.
Earlier in the day some Italian
residents of Trieste had erected
signs saying that if Allied authori
ties permitted Yugoslav demonstra
tions to be held during the day the
“Italians will hold the Allies re
sponsible for all trouble there
after.” Crowds of Yugoslav youths
defaced these and other Italian
Italian crowds still were milling
in the streets at 7:30 p. m., hooting
at Allied patrols who toured the
city to prevent more demonstra
tions and at groups of Slovenes
and communists on the streets.
Area On Alert
The demonstrations and violence
had been expected by Allied com- j
manders in view of the steady de
terioration of relations with the
Yugoslavs, and the entire Trieste
area had been placed on the alert.
Trieste was declared off limits
to all Allied soldiers except those
on police duty and all liberty
passes were cancelled for the
American sailors on three United
States warships in Trieste harbor
this morning.
Officials estimated that some
2,000 Yugoslavs and pro-Slovenes,
many of them living outside Trieste
infiltrated the city for the planned
demonstrations in honor of the
partisan anniversary.
The crowd dispersed after the
shooting and grenade explosion on
and a procession of pro-Slovenes
with wreaths marched to the ceme
tery in the San Giacomon district
to honor partisans who fell three
years ago.
The charge of hostile acts against
the Yugoslavs in Zone B was issued
by the British 13th corps, com
manded by Lt. Gen. Sir John A.
Harding. The corps includes the
American 88th division and the
British First and Sixth Armored
It accused the Yugoslavs of in
terfering with Allied military ve
hicles, confiscating Allied property
and weapons, and interrupting Al
lied communications in violation of
the agreement for the occupation
of Venezia Giulia.
Lee In U. S.
Although issued by Harding’s
corps, the charges undoubtedly
had the backing of the top Allied
military commanders in the Medi
terranean theater. Allied Comman
der Lt. Gen. John C. H. Lee was
here a few days ago before he went
to the United States to confer with
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower and
Field Marshal Lord Montgomery.

Charges Interference
Gomulka, who is president of the
communist-backed Polish Workers’
party, one of those in the govern
ment bloc, accused both Britain
and the United States of interfer
ence in Polish affairs.
Seated on the speakers’ platform
with him were leaders of other
parties, but none from Mikola
jczyk’s party, sole opposition to
the government bloc.
Gomulka said he was astonished
that Byrnes had the "audacity even
to give the Germans the hope”
that their sastern border could be
revised “while the stench of death
of the Nazi victims of the last war
still hovers over Poland.”
He said that Poland "was not go
ing to be a football to be kicked
around again,” referring to the
1939 partition which he blamed
mostly on Germany.
He charged that Byrnes was
aware of a big anti-Polish move
ment In the British and American
zones of Germany, and said Poland
wanted no Polish soldiers abroad to
enlist in the British army. The
British are offering enlistments to
the Polish corps of Gen. Wlady
slaw Anders.
Don’t Want War
“We would rather have open
enemies than masked ones and we
don’t want to be the same rabbits
as in 1939, when England did not
help us,” he said. "We don’t want
more wars and we don’t want to be
devoured by German dogs.”
Gomulka said Poland did not
have many friends but that the
greatest friend of all was the Soviet
Union, "with which Poland is join
ed by the sacrifice of blood.”

The direct American policy
would be to build up American
power at a selected point where,
if war comes, the Soviet Union
would from the outset be on the
defensive. That point is manifestly
in the Eastern Mediterranean in
the direction of the Black Sea. For
at that point American sea and
air power can be brought within
reach of the vital center of Rus
sia, and can, therefore, most surely
counteract the striking power of
the Red Army. There it would be
feasible for the United States, em
ploying the kind of force with which
we are best equipped, to redress
the balance of power which has
been radically upset by the de
mobilization of the western land
armies, by the enfeeblement of Eu
rope, by the disunity of China, and
by the reorganization of the British
Any policy designed to check
the expansion of a mighty world
power entails grave risks, and the
direct policy certainly entails grave
risks. But if it is adopted openly,
and is explained clearly to the
Soviet government and to the
world, and is applied resolutely, it
can lead us back to direct negoti
ations with the Kremlin on the
great questions of power which now
divide us. They are whether Ger
many is to be neutralized and paci
fied or is to be sought as an ally;
whether the British Empire is to
be transformed peaceably or dis
solved violently, whether the civil
war in China is to become an in
ternational war.
* * *
These are the questions we have
to discuss and settle with the rul
ers of the Kremlin if there is to
be any sense of security in the
world, and the beginnings of peace.
For twelve months, indeed since
shortly before the death of Presi
dent Roosevelt, we have had what
amounts to a suspension of diplo
matic relations on all the funda^
mental questions. But diplomatic
discussions of these questions must
be brought about or these ques
tions will in the end lead to war.
To bring it about we must want
the discussion so much that we are
willing to take the risk of acting
to convince the Russians that their
power and our power are in bal
ance at a point, which is so vitally
important, that it is no longer pos
sible to evade negotiation.
* * *
The alternative ta a direct Ameri
can-Soviet policy is the indirect
policy which, thus far at least, we
have been following. It is to wage
defensive diplomatic war by sup
porting wherever they appear gov
ernments, parties, factions and per
sons who are threatened, or can
make out a claim to be recognized
as opponents of Communism and
the Soviet Union. We must ask
ourselves whether this policy, which
is certainly not succeeding very
well, can he expected to succeed.
To confront Russia directly with
a concentration of American power
under American command is one
thing. It is quite another thing to
confront Russia with dispersed
American power in the service of
a heterogeneous collection of un
stable governments and of con
tending parties and factions which
happen to be opposed to the Soviet
Union. Direct action involves the
risk of how the Rusians will react.
But indirect action, which means
reinforcing, subsidizing and sec
onding the undisciplined members
of a loose coalition, entails the
additional risk that we cannot de
termine what our allies, partners
and proteges will do, as we lend
them our support, with the power
which we have put at their dis
A policy of lend-leasing Ameri
can power and influence to an anti
Soviet coalition means that we do
not deal directly with Moscow but
indirectly via London, Chungking,
Rome, Athens, Cairo and Tehran.
This policy, which entrusts to others
the keys to peace and war, is
bound to arouse the maximum re
sistance of the Soviet Union. It will
see it as'the organization of a coali
tion war. And yet for us it offers
no prospect of a reasonably prompt
decision. For it will take a long
time to restore Europe, unify China
and reorganize the British Empire.
Our object in checking the ex
pansion of the Soviet power is to
give Europe, China and the British
Empire the time, the freedom from
interference, and the opportunity,
to solve their enormously compli
cated problems. The coalition poli
cy puts the cart before the horse.
It is an attempt to solve their prob
lems- in order to check the Soviet
expansion. The real need, however,
is to check the Soviet expansion in
order that their problems, which
invite the expansion, may be settl
ed peaceably.
* • *
It is most important, I submit,
that in conducting this great cam
paign we do not make the fatal
strategic mistake, which we avoid- ,
ed during the war, of mortgaging
our power and exhausting our
strength in minor theaters where
no decision of the main issues can
be had. The pressure for support
is persistent, strong and appealing.
We must not, however, confuse our
interest in cooperating with free
men to construct a free world with
the immediate and urgent problem
of world politics, which is to halt
the expansion of the Soviet empire
and to bring about a negotiated
settlement of the conflict of power.
Since this is a problem of power,
we cannot delegate it to our friends,
partners and allies, but must deal
with it ourselves. We alone are
strong enough to deal with the

But many were delighted by
the accomodations. M. C. Murphy,
a war veteran who brought noth

“I heard about this on five min

“We’ve been living in two

cleaning out most of them of ali
available fresh meats. Buying also
was heavy in New York city, where
shortages already were apparent
in some stores in chops and steaks.
