Squirrel Season Shows How Nuts People Can Be COLUMBUS, Ohio W) — There have been some nutty doings in Ohio since the squirrel hunting season opened Sept. 14.

"Sorry, buddy," said the voice at the other end of the line. "I thought that was a funny-looking squirrel I shot."

Thimayya made the statement at a news conference even as thousands jammed streets in the South Korean capital of Seoul in a demonstration against Indians guarding POWs who have refused to go home. It also came amid renewed threats by South Korean leaders to drive out the Indians, whom they denounce as pro-Communist. India is chairman of the five- nation repatriation commission. Thimayya Unafraid Thimayya said, "Wc are not concerned if South Korea threatens us because we have the huge U.N. I Command" and Communist forces "at our disposal." He said the U.N. Command was* responsible for preventing South' Korean troops from entering the neutral zone to attack Indian! forces. Asked, if the 5,500 Indian troops guarding the POWs would try to quell a mass escape attempt, Thi mayya answered with a flat "no.' The Indians put down—but not without bloodshed—two attempted breakouts by anti-Communist prisoners during riotuous demonstrations last week. Three prisoners were killed and 10 wounded.

He added: Threats Can't Win "Such a peace, cannot be achieved suddenly by force, by edict or by treaty. It can come only slowly and tortuously. It will not be won by dark threats or glittering slogans. It will be born only of courage, knowledge, patience, leadership. "To strive faithfully for this peace—even as our science constantly develops new methods of mass destruction—imposes upon us a host of intricate labors. We and our friends in the free world must build, maintain and pay for a military might assuring us reasonable safety from attack.
