N. auspices, the "Voice of America" and the British Broad- easting Company began a news bulletin service, opening with A statement that governments with more than one billion population are backing the U. N. efforts to halt the conflict. Ellipinos Celebrate In Manila, the Filipinos celebrated the fourth anniversary of their Independence and, with anxious attention to the Korean war, they heard President Quirino warn of the "not-to-far-dlstant threat to Philippine independence." In an Independence Day address before the American Society in London, Winston Churchill, British Conservative Party leader, said that eome what may In Korea the Western world "shall not be trampled down Into serfdom and ruin." He emphasized that he does not believe a third world war is Inevitable." Heart Attack Fells Morrilton Mon MORRILTON, Ark.. July 5. f/p)— O. I,.
