Ciark left today for the United States and retirement after 36 years of Army service, including three wars. The general and Mrs. Clark boarded a Constellation that took off from Tokyo International Airport at 9 a.m. (7 p.m. e.s.t. Tuesday). were scheduled to make their first stop at Hawaii later today. The moment Clark's plane left the ground his command of United Nations forces in the Far East and American security forces in Japan passed to Gen. John E. Hull. Japanese Prime Minister Shigeru Yoshida and leading diplomats were on hand to bid farewell to Clark, who served 17 months in the dual command held formerly by Generals Douglas MacArthur and Matthew B. Ridgway. "I hope and pray the armistice we have signed will bring peace and security to this part of the world," Clark said in a statement at the airport. Although Clark publicly said he was reluctant to give up the command, he made no secret privately of his relief over the prospect. A week ago he greeted Gen. Hull with "Boy, am I glad to see you!" In a farewell statement to his command Clark said he was retiring "of my own choosing" but found it "more difficult than I had expected," He urged U.N. troops to maintain "utmost vigilance and fidelity." He left to Gen. Hull a new and growing crisis in Korea where the U.N. Command, South Korea, the Communists and the Neutral Nat i o n s Repatriation Commission were embroiled in an explosive quarrel over 22,500 anti-Communist war prisoners. Clark succeeded to the post of U.N. commander May 12, 1952, when Ridgway went to Paris to become Allied commander in Europe. Ridgway is now Army chief of staff.

(N?;A Tclephoto) ^gfsfer-Mail THE DAILY. GALESBURG, ILLINOIS, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1953 stc. a, PAOi if Sec Legislature Meet on 'City Aid' As Unlikely to Be Held Altona ALTONA—Clell Rylander went to Kcwanee Saturday and attended the barrow show. Rolland Rylander, vocational agriculture instructor from Waterman, was the judge | of the day. j Mr. and Mrs. Robert Johnson of 1 Moline and Mr. and Mrs. W. E. SPRINGFIELD (UP) — Chances of a special "city aid" session of the Illinois Legislature appeared extremely slim today. The Illinois Municipal League Tuesday adopted a resolution asking Gov. William G. Stratum to call a special session to pass a law making it easier for cities to levy a sales tax. A.L. Sargent, executive director of the league, had told delegates to the league's annual convention he didn't see a "Chinaman's chance" Stratton would go along with such a request. j Stratton himself had no comment but an aide said Sargent was right. He pointed out a similar sales tax bill failed to get a simple majority in the regular 1953 Legislature. In a special session, bills need two-thirds approval. Cities now may levy a half-cent sales tax but only after getting it approved in a referendum. The resolution adopted Tuesday urged passage of a law allowing a city whose government votes the tav to collect it until the next election, when it would be placed before the voters. State Sen. Frank P. Johnson (R-Kewanee) told city officials they "have fallen down on selling the people on the services of municipal government." He said a reason why voters won't okay higher taxes Is city fathers have failed to convince them they need the money to provide services which citizens demand. Hannon and children of Manhattan, spent the weekend with Mrs. Hildur Johnson and other relatives. Mrs. Mike Jones and son Larry, of Decatur spent a week recently with her sister, Mrs. Edward (Bill) Johnson.
