Officers Meet toSetUp Peace Talks By JOHN RANDOLPH And WLLIAM C. BARNARD PANMUNJOM U. S. Everyone Kenneth Young said tonight allied and Red liaison officers will meel tomorrow in the first step toward resuming talks to set up a Korean peace conference— apparently on Red terms. The Communists asked Monday for the low-level meeting —but only to discuss a elate for reopening preliminary talks broken off Dec. 12 by the United States. The Allies replied Tuesday with a note asking that the staff officers discuss both date and conditions for resuming the conference. The Reds answered with a new note Wednesday, When he first announced that the ifficers would meet Youny said they would discuss the conditions. He did not release the text of :he Red note, but paraphrased it his way: 'The Reds agree to a meeting to agree on the date 'or political discussions regarding a political peace conference."

Peiping the preliminary said: "The only condition required to reopen the discussion is that the Americans come back to the conference table. There other condition. can be no Strike Vote Is Left Up to the Workers By NORMAN WALKER WASHINGTON W — President Eisenhower said today he is leaving up to Congress whether a workers' strike vote should be taken before or after a walkout. The President declined at his news conference to say whether he regards his proposal for a strike vote as "must" legislation. Such a vote was among his recommendations he sent to Congress Monday in outlining a 14-point program for revising the Taft-Hartley Labor Relations Act. In his special message, the President phrased his strike-pool idea in general torams. He said that since going on strike and thus losing pay is so important to the individual worker, he should have a chance to "cxoress his choice by secret ballot held under government auspices." This left it unclear, whether the President had in .mind a poll taken before a walkout or after the workers were ,,on strike. Reporters were primed with questions on this uncertainty when Eisenhower met with them. First off the President was asked to clarify whether the strike balot system he proposed was intended to : apply -before a strike could begin. Eisenhower declined to give a direct answer. He said in making the recommendation he was trying to establish 3 principle •— 'that he care- Cully avoided spelling out exact details because that is the province of Congress.

Annual School Elections Set By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK WJ — Tenors are getting almost as scarce as larks at the north pole. Not bathroom tenors. Too many of them. But real tenors, opera tenors are in short supply It's got some of them worried. "In the entire world today there are only. 10 tenors who can sing major dramatic roles with author, ity," said Ramon Vinay, a for- ner baritone who became a tenor jy accident rather than intent. "As a result we have to travel ike mad, and we are getting tired. And some of us are showing voice strain." This may not appear much of ragedy to the average man who ordinarily doesn't list tenors as among the earth's major blessings, go hoarse it is a real blow to the vorld of serious music. Some fel- ow has to hit all those big notes and kiss the soprano or how can ;he opera go on . And it isn't as easy as it looks. "Before a new production we •ehearse for about three weeks" !>aicj Vinay, who keeps in shape by weight lifting. "And believe me. ive blurs on the stage of of the Metropolitan Opera is 'like 12 hours on the docks. It's like pushing a street car 20 blocks, y'kovi come K>me and diop dead." All tenors are unusual but even among his fellow tenors Vinay is a standout. He 4s a big bear-like nan who looks like I*w|s Firpo, he former South American heavyweight boxer.
