Informed officials said \ this decision is reflected in instructions sent to Gen. Malt- » hew B. Ridgway. These officials said Ridgway, being given the author- · ity, might act quickly, perhaps within a matter of-hours, lo call for a meeting of repre- f senlatives of his own U. N. command, tho South Korean command, t'.the North Korean (Communist) · command' and the. Chinese armies in Korea. That was. the formula suggested ( by Soviet Russia earlier this week as the way to bring an end to hostilities i n x Korea. ( would be on a military le der' terms and conditions which presumably would be proposed by Ridgway in his initial call for * meeting. The only official announcement from the 'government was a state- i nient from Robert A.

The board approved a 5 per cenl cut on appropriations for the com ing year for seven other state institutions. The colleges "which were cut 10 per cent are: AiM Included Eastern New Meklco University, Highlands University, New Mexico Military Institute, New. Me.xico Mines, New Mexico Western, New Mexico AM, University of New Mexico^ -Northern New Mexico Normal (El Rito) and the schools for the Blind at Alamagordo and the Deaf at Santa-Fe. All of these schools except ENM U and NMW had budgeted only 90 per cent of their appropriation. They took his action after the finance board last month warned them of the possible reduction. BNMU and NMW each had ignored the board's warning and budgeted the f u l l amount appropriated. Earlier today, the board acted quickly in-making money available 3i- fighting forest fires. Col.

This money will be used to on state lands or where state lands are threatened. Later todny the board was scheduled to Lake up the proposed budget for the next two fiscal years. It totals $67,790,027 compared with . .60.607,865 the last, two years Payroll increases, including raises in pay and personnel additions, accounted · for approximately 40 per cent of the increase. Price Rollback Ban For July Voted In House WASHINGTON, June 20 The House passed and sent to the Senate today an emergency measure extending price and rent con-- trols Until the end of July and ban-- nlng price rollbacks during that month. It then headed toward a final vote on the emergency measure, which would continue the present Defense Production Act until the end of July while Congress works out a new law. The temporary measure also keeps in operation for another month the federal rent control program and tho program for controJl-' ing imports of fats and oils. The r.o-rollback provision came as an amendment' sponsored by Chairman Cooiey ( D - N C ) of Lhe Agriculture committee, tnld tiie House "the status quo" should be maintained during the one-month extension of the present law, It was approved by standing vote of 165 to 10G. In addition to banning price rollbacks, the amendment prohibits imposition of price ceilings during July on anything not now under a ceiling, except farm commodities which could be pegged when their price reaches parity. The House laid aside until next week consideration of a comprehensive new controls act passed early this morning by the Senate. The Senate still must act after the House passed its emergency measure. If it doesn't, and if the House doesn't -net on the Senate bill by thnt time, there will be no 50 Golden Years Predicts :Nuzum Strongly Protests His Budget jlnnocence In Coogler Death Of SR Billion THE DOOR on international problems is closed for one day by Warren R.

It changed hands six times ieforc Allies forces withdrew. Chinese Reds threw some small probing attacks at the center of the line. Elsewhere ground action was confined to patrol activity.

One Russian-made jet was damaged, the Mustangs .unhurt, Far East Air Forces said. Two American jets were shot down by ground fire. , Communist radios at Pyongyang in Korea and Peiping in China ignored cease-fire talk. United Nations sources in Japan and Korea would not comment. But a spirit of optimism was apparent ti\ U. S. Eighth Army headquarters. The Korean legislature unanimously adopted a resolution opposing a trucfi on the 381)! parallel, 20 miles south of the most, recent fighting. Sources at Eighth Army headquarters speculated Kansong, antcent capital of Korea, would he a logical plnce to talk about n ceast'-fire order. The town is three miles south of the ,18th parallel, west of the western front. The Reds still hold it.

The drought, has been so severe that traffic over the intracoastal \viilcr\v.ij' -- a main artery for easl-wesl gulf water traffic -- !K threatened. Army engineers p o n d e r e d .whether to open locks to let Ihe waterway fill \ViUi .sail water from ihe Gulf of Mexico. But farmers in Louisiana's rich rice bowl feared the salt water might damage their 40 million dollar ilce crop. Flood waters covered hundreds of thousands of acres in Kansas and Missouri. There was no drinking walcr in Sedalia, a city Of 25.000. Hundreds of farm families have been evacuated. Many highways and roads arc closed. Major wheat centers reported harvest delayed a week to- eight dnys or more by rains, winds, floods and mud. Manhattan and Junction City expccled the biggest flood of the year from the Kansas river. Water was 10 inches deep in front of the Manhattan city hall. National guardumcn patrolled (liken protecting most sections of Topcka from the surging Kansas river. 2.
