BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS ,T(X,. JR-YIH—NO. 41 Blythevllli Courier Blytheville Daily Newi TUB DOMINANT NEWSPAPER Of NORTHEA3T ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI UN Will Force Release Of Officer Held Prisoner By Koje Island POW's Seoul, Korea (AP)—. Gen. James A. Van Fleet said tonight he will use force if necessary to rescue Brig. Gen. Francis E. Dodd from the Communist prisoners of war who captured the general on Koje Island prison camp. Van Fleet said he would not give in to the Reds "unreasonable" demands for special privileges before they release the prison camp commander. Mississippi Valley Leader Blytheville Herald BIA'THGVILIYE, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, MAY 9, 1952 The U. S. Eighth Army commander made his statement after a Hying trip to rebellious Koje, off the southern tip of Korea. . Van Fleet was under orders from Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway. supreme Ten-Minute Talk On Truce Held Months-Old Parleys ,. Still Stalled Over " Prisoner Exchanges MONSAN. Korea (flv-Deadlocked Korean truce negotiators met for only ten minutes today. A u. N. Command spokesman said the Reds probably awaited new Instructions from higher up. The 10 months old negotiations are stalled over the Issue of prisoners exchange, the only major block in the path of an armistice. After today's brief session, Brig. Gen. William p. Nuckols, Allied •pokesman, said he did not think the Communists have had an opportunity to "get new instructions." He called attention to recent statements by top officials in the U.S., Britain and Canada supporting thu uncompromising u. N. Command stand that no prisoners will be forced to return to Red rule against their will. North Korean Gen. Nam II again demanded unconditional return of Red prisoners in Allied hands and rejected the U.N. proposal to return only those who would go vol- 1 untarily. Y Vice Adm. C. Turner Joy, chief PTI.N. delegate, replied: "The firmness and finality of the United Nations Command position ahould be unmistakably clear to you by this time. I have nothing els< to say." They agreed to meet again to. morrow In Panmunjom at 11 a.m (8 p.m. Friday Allied commander, "to use whatever force is necessary" to free Dodd without delay. The 52-year-old Dodd has been a prisoner since Wednesday, when North Korean POWs seized him at the gates of a compound. Ridgway said the Communists were demanding "phones, permission to organize, writing paper and some other things" befcre they would release Dodd. The Army released only meager details of the new rebellion at Koje and kept newsmen from going there. Van Fleet said "we have not yet been able to determine why the guards didn't rush In for a rescue attempt. That question will be answered by a military board of Inquiry." He expressed confidence Dodd •would net be harmed. The Eighth Army commander attached considerable significance to Dodd's own expressed optimism over an Army telephone which kept him in contact with American guards outside the stockade. "However." Van Sleet said ,"if necessary, force will be used to effect his release." An Eighth Army spokesman said Dndd and I.t. Col. Wilbur Robert Raven of Newton, Tex., were seized while standing at the gate of a prison compound talking to leaders of the 6.000 Communist prisoners. "The gate was a wide one," the spokesman said. "Dodd was siand ing in the "center of the gate. Organize*! Mob "When the prisoners grabbed him, it was an organized mob am he was swept inside.. "But Raven was standing Insid. a post of the gate. When the pris oners grabbed him. he seized Che post, held on, and by fighting an kicking managed to free himself The post saved him, but Gen. Dod' had nothing to cling to." Treated Well The Army said Dodd has been treated well by the Reds.

The disagreement is over a claim by Japan to the vast properties she held before V-J Day In Korea, which for 35 years was Japanese- governed. Included are the railroads, shipping, utilities and public buildings — almost everything of value In her former territory. Tokyo's Insistence that the Korean government must agree to restore the property Id its "original state" and pay indemuilcs for damage resulting from thc current Korean conflict has stalemated treaty negotiations. Diplomatic authorities said today that a Korean appeal to the State Department has produced a crisp opinion approved by Secretary Acheson that the Japanese claim is not valid. The American position is that Japan lost any rights she may have had in the peace treaty which last month restored her sovereignty. In article IV of the treaty Japan accepted the disposition of former Japanese pro]>erty which was made by the U.S. military government before American occupation troops were pulled'out of Korea in 1048; LI. Gen. John R. Hodge, the occupation commander, who had con- fkcBted,; tt ail in ISr15, ordered it turned'over to the South Korean government. Some of the property is now privately owned. Japan and South Korea for months have been trying to work out terms of n treaty of friendship and commerce — in effect n separate peace treaty — because the Koreans were not permitted to sign the 49-nation San Francisco pact. Technically Korea was never at war with Japan. The Japanese argument that its former property must be replaced is puzzling to American officials. Eisenhower, In a cable from Paris to Sen. Tom Connolly of Texas, said a billion-dollar cut already proposed In Congress v.'cutd hurt. Any deeper slices off Die $7,000,000,000 asked by 'president Trumun would endanger the nation's security. Taft promptly replied (hat even n slash of two billions would not imperil the program or U. S. Security. Connally, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, had asked Eisenhower's views. In Copenhagen today, Elsenhow- er snid "reasonable cuts" In U. S. foreign aEd would not be fatal to Western Europe's defense. Eisenhower made today's comments in reply to a reporter's question just before he took off from Copenhagen for Oslo. He Is visiting the two Scandinavian capitals before leaving his supreme Allied command in Europe about June 1 to return home. President Truman told his news conference yesterday he has not budged in support of the civil rights plank adopted font 1 years ago by thc Democratic Party. The resultant Southern revolt then cost Truman 39 electoral voles in the 1948 presidential race. Key southern lawmakers, in view of Truman's pat stand, disagreed to whether civil rights differences can be patched up. Senators Burnct May bank of South Carolina and Waller George of Georgia snid they expected a compromise and a united party by general election time. Sen. Harry Byrd of Virginia, however, said he sees little difference between the 1948 and 1952 situations. Russell, In a press club speech, sharply denounced proposals for compulsory Fair 'employ menl Practices Commission (FEPC), core of the dispute.

Joseph Curran, president of the National Maritime Union and vice president of the CIO, was scheduled to appear before Ibc committee todny. Curran opposed every detail of Ihe bill as "viciously anti-labor 11 in a statement prepared for Ihe com- mlltce. He will be asked for further views, however. Several committee members have expressed belief that the measure is not adequate' as it stands. They said they wanted suggestions for improvement. The measure was spurred, by the controversies in the slecl and oil Industries. Smith said it is designed in both in any these other to prevent strikes fields as well a; critical Industries. Chairman VInson (D-Gk) offered two tttxcndments in mi apparent effort to make Ihe measure *rnore Appealing to Congress. • •- ' ''One would authorize Ihe courts, nfter 30 days of receivership operations, to determine any necessary wage or price changes. The Smith measure has been crilicizecl for specifying that wnges should, be frozen during the receivership period. The second amendment would require Ihe courts regularly to publish detailed financial reports on both plants and unions under receivership. Those would include profits nnd losses and the salaries of top Inbor and union officials. Committee officials said this would apply more pressure on Industry to seek a settlement before heing thrown into receivership. Industry representatives were invited to testify on the measure. John A. Stephens, chief* negotiator for the steel companies, replied by letter that preoccupation with the seizure case prevented this. He said industry-wide opinion was not available and voiced (tic personal opinion that the bill would insure continued production but would not solve basic problems of such controversies.
