Austria. Sept. 30.— Prohibition rum-runners, who used to smuggle Scotch Into the then dry United States were strictly small-timers compared to the smuggling network currently sponsored by the Soviet Union. The American rum - runner sometimes had the nod from some crooked officials, who looked the other way when he beached his load of whiskey. Soviet smugglers are even bet ter fixed—they work for Moscow. Every night truckloads of Hun garian textiles, Polish hams, Ro manian woolens and Baltic lumber make a quick spring past Austrian or German border posts—not stopping to pay any customs or tariffs. All this is by arrangement Austrian or German federals look the other way not necessarily because they are paid off—but because they are scared off. Policemen Won’t Stop Trucks. For the smugglers’ trucks carry a badge of terror—the red star of the Soviet Union. An Austrian or German police man will no more stop, question and annoy a van with that red star on it than he would annoy a rogue elephant. All of which permits the Soviet i Union and its satellite states— operating through the great Soviet i crime ring—to dump millions In goods onto the black markets of the occupied countries—and ex tract needed dollars in return. American and Allied business men who trade here, having that strange capitalistic habit of obey ing some laws, pay tariffs and customs, The Government of the United States—unlike the U.S.S.R.I —is not in the smuggling profes sion. By depriving the occupied coun tries of custom duties through this muscle method the great Soviet crime ring picks another few million dollars from the wallet of the American taxpayer. For by his Marshall Plan—and other i various organizations—he has guarenteed to support the econ omy. While the occupied countries are the depots for most smuggled goods, the smuggling ring extends around the globe. A British police official told me that the present huge black mar ket in jewelry in England is sup plied by valuables from behind the Iron Curtain. These gems are collected by the Russian import-export companies, sold in the black markets of Vienna, Munich or Berlin, and hustled into England by crooked sailors. The great goviet crime ring ordinarily leaves the smuggling— outside of the easily accessible occupied countries—to the inde pendent operators. But recently portable items—diamonds, gold bars, vintage wines—have been sneaked into various lands by diplomatic attaches. The Russian and satellite state officials are given packages to de liver under their stamp of im munity. Very often they do not even know what the mysterious wrappings contain. They merely, get the parcel from a Soviet im port-export outfit while leaving j the motherland, and are told to hand It over to Mr. X, on arrival in Paris, Copenhagen or Shang hai. Without question Mr. X had already paid a Communist con cern a good fee for the package— and a sizeable delivery charge in addition. The deal was nego tiated, no doubt, in one of the coffee houses of Vienna.
