LEGISLATURE ENDS SESSION Winds Up Six-Month Program With Vote On Gas Tax at Dawn on Sunday. By Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, 111., July 2 — Illinois legislators scattered to their homes over the weekend after approving much of Governor Stevenson's program, including an increase in the state gasoline tax. The gas tax boost was voted as dawn broke Sunday, and the 67th General Assembly wound up its six months regular session minutes later. Barring a special meeting, the weary lawmakers won't return, to work at Springfield for IS months. The Republican dominated Assembly gave the Democratic Governor some of the things he wanted with reluctance. Settlement of the gas tax question was a case in point. lc Now Anil lc in '58 Instead of yielding to Stevenson's request for an immediate two cents a gallon increase, the legislature okayed an unusual compromise plan (or a one cent boost Aug. 1, and a pennv more effective Jan. 1, 1953. The gas levy now is three cents. It has not changed sincm.vl9£>9^<: The Governor expressed disappointment but added that he was "thankful for this delayed victory at least." Exhausted House lawmakers endorsed the compromise 84 to 57 after three hours debate, and the Senate aproved it 29 to IS. Most Chicagoans voted against, arguing that the plan favored rural areas at the expense of the cities. Only the Governor's signature remais to complete enactment of the higher gas tax. Along with increased truck license fees, the legislation will produce extra revenue, compared with 1950, of S4 0,000,000 in 1952, $60,000,000 in 1953 and $68,000 in 1954. Townships Get Share Under tiie four cent gas levy, towships will get a share of proceeds figured at the rate of $7,500,000 a year for rural roads. Cities, counties and the state will receive about $24,167,000 apiece. The distribution formula will change when the tax goes to a nickel, providing for this annual apportionment: State highways, 535,000,000; cities, $32,000,000; downstair counties. $12,000,000 Cook county. $11,000,000 and townships, $10,000,000. The Assembly approved other features ol the . administration- backed road improvement program •— higher truck license fees, stiff er truck overload penalties and legislation for consolidating control of rural -roads. Truck Licenses Up Truck licenses will be raised by $20,000,000 a year starling in January, 1952 and by $8,000,000 more in 1954. Stevenson asked the $28,000,000 hike at one crack. Apparently focusing on the gas tax and truck bills, the Governor made this comment in a statement yesterdas : "The people had expected the legislature to produce an adequate road program. But the House leadership evidently decided to postpone it until after the next election. ••If this was a political triumph for sofebody, it was a misfortune for the people of Illinois." House Republicans argued that by den\mg all the Governor asked for the tmie being, they were voting i" "save" taxpayers $30,000,001! in the 17 months ending Dec. 31. 1052. It u ;is they who shaved the gas lax and postponed part ol the truck tee increase. Speaker Warren L- Wood, Plainfield Republican, spearheaded the move. Most Senate Republican's upheld the Governor's view.

EARLY REPLY TO ENEMY IS TAKING SHAPE Instructions Sent to Ridg- woy; No Rush to Bring Troops Home; Buffer Zones Mapped. By Associated Press WASHINGTON, July 2. — The U. S. joint chiefs of staff and Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway exchanged messages today on the Communist proposal for Korean armistice talks at Kaesong after July 10. An early reply to the Communists presumably was taking shape. Secretary of Defense Marshall also advised Congress there would be no rush to bring U. S. troops home from the Far Pacific in the event a Korean armistice is negotiated. Marshall made the statement in urging the House Foreign Affairs Committee to act quickly on the administration's request for $8,500,000,000 "for foreign military and economic aid. Responsible officials, who said a series of messages had passed between Ridgway and the joint chiefs, gave no hint of what was said in them. The fact of the consultations pointed, however, to a possible reply within hours to the Communists. A likely time might be the early evening hours of tonight, Washington time. Because of the time difference, nightfall in Washington is Tuesday morning in Tokyo. No Objection to Kaesong Site No objections have been voiced to Kaesong—one of the few places the Communists now hold south of the 38th parallel—as a meetr ing place. Top officials have made plain they would like to have an earlier date. There was no sign however whether Ridgway has been advised to propose this.

M. Oatis Follows the Usual Line in Red Trial at Prague When He Recites His Guilt in Testimony Previously Memorized. Secretary of StatogAcheson over the Korean^flevelopmei with his top advisors at. a staff meeting during the morning. Later, he went to the White House for a review of foreign issues with PresideQtiTrwr^n. The President has been kept n close touch with all developments and regularly meets with Acheson on Mondays. Assistant, Secretary of State Dean Rusk meantime called in British and French embassy officials for separate conferences during the afternoon. Tomorrow representatives of 17 countries with armed fighting in Korea are clue to exchange views on true developments in a regular^ semi-weekly meeting at the State 5 Department. By agreement last week, South Korea will be represented for the first time. GOP Not Consulted In a speech in the Rouse, Rep. Armstrong CR-Mo) urged that President Truman dismiss Acheson from his cabinet and call a conference of Democratic and Republican leaders on foreign policy. Armstrong complained that no GOP congressional leader has been consulted on cease-fire proposals in Korea. Hopes for an early end to the war in Korea were steadily mounting, although State Department officials kept a tight rein on any strong optimism. They emphasized that the agreement to hold truce talks, though making peace a definite possibility, leaves unsolved the whole problem of working out cease-fire terms acceptable to both sides. Qualified informants said terms which the United States would like to see negotiated has been sent to Ridgway at. Tokyo Saturday. They were described as tentative, pending full consultation with other nations with troops in Korea. 20-Mile Buffer Zone They are reported to provide principally for a 20-mile wide buffer zone between the hostile forces along the present battle line which cuts across the 38th parallel in the west. If the armistice calls for the troops to stand in this area, they will have better defensive positions and shorter lines to worry about on both sides, military experts here said. The main item which this government feels must be included in any truce arrangements, however, is one for inspection of forces on both sides through an international, United Nations, cease-fire commission. Washington feels this group, charged with preventing armistice violations, should have authority from both sides to investigate throughout Korea during the period from the end of the fighting to the establishment of a political settlement. That would be 'he next; objective and it would take a long time to work out. FRANKFURT, Germany, July 2.—William N. Oatis, Associated Press chief of bureau in Prague, went on trial before a communist Czechoslovak court today and testified he had been an "espionage agent." Reporting this. American officials who are attending the trial said Oatis looked pale and strained. They said he spoke in careful phrases which indicated he had memorized his^ testimony. He has been jailed/' since his, arrest April 23 without being permitted to see any, persons except his communist jailers. His trial brought to mind for westerners tho. experience of American busii^s^m|in Tlobert A. Vogeler, tried byvconimunist Hungary. Vogeler, released after 17 months, rept'd 'af vit!

Czechoslovakia's law for the defense of the republic, passed in November, 1948 and now embodies in the new 1950 penal code, makes it unlawful, for instance, for newspaper correspondents to make public "information regarding any enterprise, institution, installation or measure that is important for the defense of Ihe republic or its - Hies." Even the reporting of crimes against the defense of the republic would be illegal under this law, unless such information had been released officially. Charge AP Spying Center The official Czechoslovak news agency, reporting on Oatis' trial said the AP reporter is accused of heading a spy center directed by the Associated Press. The Associated Press says this charge is "so preposterious it will deceive no one in the free world." The two U. S. embassy observers at the trial—the only Americans permitted to attend, said Oatis, as if acting on instructions, did not look around the spectators as he was led into the courtroom. He was not wearing his eyeglasses. Oatis spoke slow- 1:. in a firm voice, pausing often he wait for the translators. The observers said he admitted he had obtained political, economic and military information which was not officially published by the Czech government. Oatis, 37. a native of Marion, Ind., has been in Prague one year as AP chief of bureau. No Americans Allowed No western correspondents were in Prague to cover his trial. Several had been expelled and the last three western reporters withdrpw after Oatis'' arrest. The embassy observers at the trial are relaying their reports to the U. S. high commission office in Krankfurt, which is making the reports available to the western press. The Czech prosecutor charged in court, today that the last three western reporters to leave Prague, Ruspil Jones of the United Press; Robert Bigio of Reuters, and Gaston Fournier of the French press agency, also engaged in spying. Orders From New York The prosecutor asked Oatis if he had been an espionage agent, and had acted on orders from his Associated Press superiors in New York and London. He answered "Yes."

By Associated Press TOKYO, July 2.—Red Korea tonight urged its soldiers to fight on while the world waited for news of an expected armistice. Pyongyang radio repeated Chinese and North Korean acceptance of a United Nations proposal for cease-fire talks. But the Reds made this clear: They are claiming victory in the year-old conflict. The North Korean Communist station started each broadcast with this statement: "The Anglo-American aggressors have at last realized failure of their sinister attempt and that is why they are seeking peace." Between news items the Communist announcers inserted these statements: "Soldiers on the front, fight bravely and continue annihilation of aggressors," and "anti-aircraft batteries, aim sharp and increase the bag of enemy intruders." Japanese radio monitors, who heard the Ted broadcasts, said 1 10 * five years imprisonment for the Communist tone was even (teaching the violent overthrow of stronger than usual.

Ryan today ordered seven top Communists to begin serving prison terms and issued bench warrants for four who failed to surrender. Minutes later, the seven were handcuffed, loaded into a van and whisked away to the Federal House of Detention. Small groups of bystanders outside the courthouse waved goodbye. * Ten of the 11 had been sentenced Found Dead Warren Lee Irwin (above) Identified by police as wanted in rape and kidnaping of Carolyn Barker, 17, at Flemington, S. J., was found dead (July t) ending the grimmest manhunt in New Jersey history. FBI agents found Irwin's rain- drenched body, a bullethole in the left temple, lying; flat on his back in a soggy dense wheat field by a barbed wire fence. Flood was still oozing from the nose and a .38 caliber weapon was close to Irwin's left hand. —(AP Wirephoto) y The Reds f'rst. announced over the two stations Sunday night that they are willing to meet U. N.' representatives and discuss a cease-fire. They want the meeting held in the Kaesong area between July 10 and 15. Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, Supreme Allied commader, had proposed Saturday that a meeting be held aboard the Danish hospital ship Jutlandia in Wonsan harbor. He said he woud propose a da,te, if the Reds agreeed to the meeting. The world talked peace, but it was "business as usual" on the fighting front. There were bitter ground skirmishes at scattered points. Heavy TJ. N. Air Attack Allied warplanes threw another heavy blow at the Hwangju airfield north of Sariwon in the northwest, Other plants hit supply centers, rail and road lines, brdiges, troop concentrations and gun positions. B-29 Superforts hit military barracks at Hungnam on the east coast. United Nations Naval forces continued to blockade and pound the North Korean east coast. Heaviest ground fighting of the day apparently was on the western front. An Allied patrol stormed a hill north of Yonchon. The foot troops killed 33 Reds and captured four. The Allies withdrew and called down an air and artillery barrage. Another 30 to 40 Reds were killed or wounded. Kaesong In Ruins There was no action reported from Kaesong, the rubbled town on the western front where the Reds want to hold the negotiations. There have been reports the town has been abandoned by the Reds. The Kaesong area is the only place where the Reds have a foothold south of parallel 38. It is about three miles south of that pre-war border. On the west central front. Allied patrols pushed up to the coast of two strategic hills south of Pyongyang. Pyonggang is the northern tip of the old Red "iron triangle." The patrol pulled back under heavy Red mortar fire. Although the fighting was bitter in spots, there still seemed to be some reluctance on both sides to push too hard or too fast. There is no way of knowing how long such a situation might continue. Predict Truce Belay Chinese Nationalists on Formosa predict cease-fire talks will be drawn out over a long period. They said the Reds asked that the talks be scheduled July 10 to 15 to give them an opportunity to consult with Moscow. In Hong Kong, a gateway to Red China, many observers expressed the opinion the Reds have tentatively agreed to future peace in Korea for a reason. They say the next step will be a Russian demand for a greater voice in the. proposed Japanese peace treaty. The Communist agreement to meet for cease-fire talks was broadcast by Peiping radio late Sunday night. The statement was repeated by North Korea's Pyongyang radio. . The message was addressed to (Continued on pas* lU) ifeiiry Winst6n,""o5, Vrganiz secretary of the party; Gus Hall, 39, Ohio State chairman; Robert Thompson, 'Nevt,York, state chairman, and Gi\10m'~':.e , 6ti, 43, Illinois chairman^^>\,^jL _ All haur ,.-j £**7', liberty under , bail of $2u ,tk>if each, furnished by the Civil Rights Congress, which the U.
