Last night in Berlin, 8,000 Ger-
mans heard that figurahead of
German Communism, Wilhelm
Pieck, demand that the Western
Allies get out. fhst was accom-
panied by his pious protestation
that the Russian blockade really
wasn’t meant to harm Western
Berliners, since the Soviet authori-
ties had promised to feed the en-
tire city. And ft’s so about the
Russian Offer—but what Pieck
conveniently neglected to add was
that tha blockade began the last
week in June and it wasn't until
one month later that the Russians
made their somewhat less-than-
magnanimous offer. And what, it
might be asked of Herr Pieck,
would have happened between
those dates without the American

So last night more of the dis-
ruptive propaganda. And again to-
day in Berlin, still more of the
same aa several thousand Com-
munists and fellow - travelers
stormed the city hall. You may be
sure that It was intended by the
Ruseian authorities that the mob
get into the assembly chamber and
stage its tirades against the city
government. That was easily man-
aged because the city hall is in
the Soviet sector of Berlin. Here,
toe, the intention was obvious—
the disruption and collapse of the
anti-Communlst city council, There
will be other attempts to achieve
this goal, barring some last-minute
reprieve from Moscow.
All these things require a cer
tain physical and mental climate
—an atmosphere of want, confu-
sion, and despair. Berlin provides
all those. And we are indebted to
Richard K. O’Malley of the Asso-
ciated Press who has just arrived
