Stands Pat on Truce Talk Agenda Troop Withdrawal Not an Issue, Allies Insist By I.INDESAY PARROTT Sptda! rrom tha Nrw Turk limn TOKYO United Nations delegates at Kaesong Saturday served notice on the Commu nists that they consider the agenda for armistice talks complete without, including an agreement to withdraw foreign troops from Korea as a condition for a ceasefire. Details of the Allied stand rame to light as the meetings in the neutralized city behind enemy lines recessed until Wednesday at Chinese and North Korean request. CHINESE REDS MAY CHANGE AGENDA STAND page in. Pooled dispatches passed through the lumbering army censorship in Korea disclosed that the chief Allied negotiator, Vice Adm. C. Turner Joy, agreed to a postponement in order to allow the Communists to seek further instructions. BUT HE TOLD them the program for further talks "should be considered a complete agenda" on the basis of the area of agreement already reached. As far as has been made known only the question of evacuation by Allied end Chinese forces plus one other point the nature of which was not disclosed is still at issue between both sides. Joy. it was stated, informed the Communist delegation the conferences should proceed with detailed discussions of the means of ending the 13-month hostilities. He agreed to a recess only after the Chinese generals apparently had pressed that course on their chief delegate. Gen. Nam II, chief of staff of the North Korean army. IOY INFORMED the enemy negotiators that as far as the United Nations were concerned he "saw no need" for a pause to review the Allied position. Joy, Maj. Gen. Laurence C. Craigie, vice commander of the far cast air forces, and Rear Adm. Arleigh Burke, three of the five-man Allied negotiation team, returned to Tokyo last night. It was indicated that most of the Communist delegation also had pulled out of Kaesong until the talks resume. On the fighting front Allied airplanes, guided by radar and ground control, flew through heavy rains that blanketed all north Korea Saturday to renew their aerial warfare against the Reds. Meanwhile, muddled briefing officers at the advance headquarters of Gen. Ridgway, the U.N. commander, scratched their heads and tried to figure out exactly what had happened yesterday. PERHAPS THE MOST lucid romment came from Brig. Gen. William Nuckols sent fo Tokyo last year to make publicity for the air force in the Korean war and now deputy information officer at the advance base. "No tangible progress was made, yet I think it would be erroneous to say that no progress was made," was Nuckol's contribution. He found a "general air of reasonableness" among the Chinese-North Korean delegation the Chinese for the first time apparently taking the initiative in pressing for an adjournment. Nuckols, army censors permitted a pooled dispatch to say, discovered "signs of inner tension" in Nam II. THIS WAS DEDUCED from the fact that the North Korean general, a heavy cigaret smoker, did not take time to use his holder yesterday. Thus far the army, with its policy of keeping secret from j the nations involved all except : petty procedural details of the meeting, had not revealed what ! items are on the agendas of j both sides, how many there are. how many are in dispute and how many agreed upon. It was not even admitted that the question of a withdrawal of foreign troops had been brought up until the Peking and Pyongyang radios and the Soviet Union's official Tass agency broadcast the fact to the world.

The business block, 115 Signal s Heard; May Be From Missing Plane ANCHORAGE, ALASKA (UP) A Korean airlift plane carrying 38 persons disappeared over Alaska's rugged coast Saturday. Hours later unidentified signals were heard. Canadian Pacific airlines officials said the "strong, hut intermittent" radio signals could be from their DC-4 carrying 23 United States air force men, three United Stales soldiers, three United Nations 'civilian officials, two members of the Royal Canadian navy and a crew of seven Canadians, including two stewardesses. Searchers feared the plane had hit one of the mountains towering above Alaska's rugged southeastern coast. An air-sea search was organized immediately, but the area in which the plane disappeared is so treacherous search operations were difficult. The transport was on the first leg of a flight to Japan from Vancouver, Canada. The craft's radio went silent after sending a routine radio message while flying over Cape Spencer, Midway between Vancouver and Anchorage. Military officials said the search would center in the southern end of the rugged St. Elias mountain range, known as "the land of missing planes." Weather conditions in the search area were bad.

PICTURE ROTO MAGAZINE THIS WEEK MAGAZINE CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING SECTIONS COLOR COMICS SECTIONS Airview of Shattered Richfield Stores British Ban Russ Trip for Atomic Scientist LONDON (UPl Britain Saturday prevented British atomic scientist Dr. Eric H. S. Burhop from making a planned "friendship visit" to Moscow and announced it has suspended a foreign office official. A foreign office announcement declined to reveal the names of either man both of whom had their passports canceled as a "precautionary measure" but Burhop confirmed he was the scientist involved. Burhop, scientist at London university who worked on the atomic bomb in the United States during the war, said he was "incensed" at the government's action. The foreign office spokesman insisted that there was no connection with its action yesterday and the mysterious disappearance two months ago of diplomats Donald McClean and Guy Burgess. THE TALL, BURLY Australian-born scientist said he had surrendered his passport at the demand of the home office in stead of joining a group who left yesterday on a plane trip to Moscow. The government had said it had canceled Burhop's passport because his trip was nor "in the national interest." It said his case had no connection with that of the foreign office man, suspended "as a result of certain inquiries." Burhop complained that once a scientist works on atomic energy, he is "a marked man. "It is now nearly six years since I had any connection whatever with the atomic energy project. DURING THAT TIME I have had no access whatever to documents of a secret or restricted nature," he said in a statement. '"As far as I know the great bulk of the restricted information which I had any contact during the war has long since been published." Burhop, secretary of the atomic scientists committee of the Association of Scientific Workers, was to have accompanied 19 others-among them doctors and professors - on the Russian trip sponsored by the Anglo-Soviet Friendship society.

Controls Bill to Hike Prices By FLETCHER KNEBEL MtnnetpolU Tribune Stuff f orrraponrifnt WASHINGTON You can expect a slight increase In cost of living in months ahead. That's the net result of house passage of the wage-price controls bill early Saturday morning. It followed a hectic two-month battle through both chambers of congress. Conflicting items as passed by house and senate still must be compromised by a house-senate conference committee. But the main outlines of the final version which president. Truman will sign into law now are clear. Here's how the final law probably will affect you as a consumer: The wages you, receive and the prices you pay will remain under government regulation until about next summer. The house said until July 31, 1952, the senate proposed Feb. 28. A compromise between the two dales is expected. If you rent your house or apartment, your rent probably will increase unless it already has gone up considerably since 1947. Both house and senate proposed to grant landlords a 20 per cent increase above the levels of June 30, 1947.

In the aftermath of the storm, a St. Paul man and a raynesvillo, Minn., man were electrocuted by fallen wires. A Virouua, Wis., family of six was reported to have drowned in a flash flood, and another Wisconsin man also drowned. Three other person., died In the Twin Cities during the storm. The storm death toll yesterday was 13. The properly damage estimate by insurance men Is conservative, they said, and does not include n "terrific amount" of damage to public utilities. Nor does it take In damage to private anil military installations and airplanes at Wold Chamber-lain airport, or to Veterans hospital and Fort Snelling buildings. OFFICIALS reported they will have to ask an additional federal appropriation of "at least $100,000" to repair damage to hospital buildings and a hospital annex and other structures at the fort. From a property damage point of view, the storm was the most destructive In local history, Insurance m e n said. There will not be as many claims as there were following a windstorm Oct. 10, 1919, when damage totaled about three million dollars. Rut claims are expected to be larger in the aftermath of Friday's storm, insurance men said. A survey of damage in the Twin Cities and the Lake Minnetonka area already has begun. FROM A WEATHER bureau point of view, the storm also was the worst summer "blow" on record. It was "an extremely severe thunderstorm," w e a th e r m e n said. The storm knocked out wind and rain measuring instruments, so the weathermen never will know for sure how intense it was. But tornadoes probably hit parts of the area during the storm, weathermen said. This was Indicated by the numbers of residential and business sections demolished, they said. Two wind records were shattered in the storm. There were gusts of at least 100 miles an hour highest registered here. There was a sustained velocity of 80 miles an hour, 15 miles an hour greater than the previous velocity for a five-minute period. THE NUMBER of death reports in the storm increased Saturday.

Filemeno, the Filipino driver, Bob Dudley of Northwest Airlines nnd I set off early this morning to retrace a portion of the Bataan death march route-wit h a shovel. A SERGEANT had told Bob the story of burying $100,000 in army, cash and 200,000 pesos (worth $100,000) just before tha Japanese captured his finance unit in .1912. Of the three men who burled this $200,000, two died on the march through Bataan. The sergeant, in Madison, Wis., had given Boh a map and his best wishes.
