    Colorful And
Fete Of Schools Entertains
Huge Throng At Finlay Field
All the superlative adjectives used by motion picture producers
to describe their latest film creation would be needed to fully de-
scnoe-ine May rete, produced jointly last night by Senior High
School and Roseburg grade schools, under the supervision of Cece
Sherwood, athletic director, and
me noseourg school system.
A crowd that overflowed be
yond the cindertrack filled the
huge Finlay Field grandstand.
The rafters were literally filled,
with spectators even jamming
the press box on the stadium
roof. '
The grand entrance, headed by
the Roseburg band and ma
jorettes, was impressive, as near
ly 600 students marched onto the
field. The vari-colored costumes,
the stalwart youth togged in
gymnasium suits, the backdrop of
lights and trees, the musical back
drop provided by the High School
Band and the green carpet of
grass all added up to a spectacle
of pageantry rarely seen in this
If the Russian leaders could
have seen the local May Fete,
they would undoubtedly have shot

Performances Delight
Grade school performers started
the action. Especially crowd
pleasing was the Ringling Broth
ers' relay, as staged by the Ful
lerton Elementary School. They
conducted a race, that included
various physical contortions and
exercises. At one portion of the
race two runners grasped a stick,
ran on either side of their line
while holding the stick parallel
to the ground. This made it neces
sary for those in line to jump as
the stick cut toward their shins.
In the heat of the race, one small
stick-holder ran "like mad" so his
team could get ahead of the com
peting team. As those in line
jumped successively, it created a
smooth rhythmic pattern that
was also humorous to observe.

Twould seem we're currently engaged In the. battle-of-the-bop
... or at least there's a cold-war attitude toward this seemingly
nit-wit stuff the record companies are making a haul on. We'll
admit that bop isn't going so well around the country ... Its fans
are centered only in certain sections of New York, Hollywood, and
Chicago . . . with a tiny sprinkling here and there throughout the
rest of the U. S. Those in the "Night Riders In the Sky", and
"Buttons and Bows" school of music undoubtedly won't like bop.
Acceptance of the bop pattern Is definitely snail's pace . . . as it
was with swing in the beginning. Bop-klng Dizzy Gillespie first
introduced the instrumental version . . . and was followed up by
Dave Lambert and Buddy Stewart with their vocal version ... a
difficult to accomplish voice-used-as-musical-lnstrument interpreta

Four Lanes.
Salem's grid-system highway .
routing plan ultimately to cost

East Germany Swat At Communism
Upsets Soviet's Strategy Plans
(AP Foreign Affairs Analyst)
The Kremlin must have been set rocking by the election In the
Soviet Zone of Eastern Germany, where more than a third of the
voters balloted against hand-picked, Communist-approved candl
dates for the new "People's Congress."
The Red command had antlcl-1
pated the usual favorable vote
of virtually 100 per cent in such
elections. This was to be a tri
umph for presentation at the
forthcoming meeting of the Big
Four foreign ministers' Council
In Paris.
Moscow's strategy was to lay
before the Council this "People's
Congress" of 2,000 delegates
which would match the federal
republic of Western Germany.
Not only that, but the Congress
contains 500 delegates specially
designed to represent Western
In short, the "People's Con
gress" was to have been put for
ward by the Russians to repre
sent all Germany.
What line of strategy th3 Mus
covites will pursue to offset this
upset is a matter of keen specu
lation in Western diplomatic cir
cles. Certainly the so-called "Peo
ple's Congress" has lost any
magic which it might have held
for Western Germany had the
election been practically "unani
mous" as planned.
This revolt of the German vot
ers in the Soviet Zone Is In Itself
a momentous development, but it
seems to me to fit into a picture
of much broader significance.

lyzed the statement by Paul G.
Hoffman, director of the Econ
omic Cooperation Administration,

Now comes this rebuff to the
Russians in Eastern Germany
which was supposed to have been
thoroughly Communizod. We see
tnat Were Is a nowerrui anti-
Communist element in that zone,
and that it dares raise Its head.
Then take a look at Yugoslavia.
This Balkan state was supposedly
the most thoroughly Communized
of all the satellite states. It was
Communism's forward theater
for training and supply . In the
cold war. But Moscow s hold on
that state cracked up on the
rocks of Yugoslav- nationalism.
Marshal Tito and his followers
subscribed to Communism, but
doggedly clung, to nationalism
rather than acknowledge Moscow
as the seat of sovereignty. The
Cominform launched a drive
against Tito and thus far has
been beaten at Its own game.
In neighboring Bulgaria there
have been purges of prominent
Communists, then Bulgarian
