THURSDAY, APRIL 2, 1958 BLYTHEVTLLE ( ARK.) COWlim HBWI PAGl THSM Armistice Won't Settle The Korean Problem By JAMES J1ARLOW WASHINGTON Wl — A Korean armistice would not settle the Korean problem. Peace talks begin when the shooting ends. Haggling over peace terms may make the 22 months of haggling over truce terms look mild. An armistice is not peace, even • though men stop dying when the shooting stops. It's a temporary cease-fire, supposedly until a final peace settlement can be worked out. f . Representatives of the United.Na- i tions and the Communists agreed long ago they'd begin discussions about a permanent peace within three months after the armistice went Into effect, if they could ever agree on an armistice. When an armist'ce- begins the U. N. troops and the Chinese Communists would not suddenly turn and walk out of Korea. Each side would withdraw one mile from the fighting tront, leaving a demilitarized zone of two miles between them. And there, presumably, they would stay until peace was agreed upon. Neither could clear out before then for fear the other would suddenly resume the attack, flow long would that go on? It's anyone's guess. The U. N. probably would con tlnue training South Koreans, even tually letting them take over the forward positions. Other D. N troops could then withdraw to sup> porting positions in the rear, jusi in case. Both Agreed Both sides also agreed long ago that with the coming of an armistice neither could thereafter bring In more troops or build up its armament, although each could rotate its troops and replace beat- up equipment. If the TJ. N. found the Communists cheating and building up strength for a new attack, again it's anyone's guess what the U.' N. would do. But the problems of a final peace settlement are greater than .those which bogged down the armistice- talkers for almost two years. Here are some examples: Should Korea be left divided into two by the 38th Parallel, as it was before the North Koreans attacked the South Koreans in June, 1950? The Chinese Communists and their North Korean allies could hardly settle for anything else. To do otherwise would be to accept at the peace conference a defeat which the U. N. hadn't been able to inflict on the battlefield. But would the U. N. and Chinese troops have to withdraw from Korean soil, once peace was signed? The Chinese might welcome that idea. They could withdraw just across the border and be ready to pour in suddenly at , Adenauer Leaves For United States BONN, Germany W1 — Chance lor Konrad Adenauer left by plan yesterday on the first leg of h Journey to the United States confer with President Eisenhowe and Secretary of State Dulles.

N. and the Chinese withdrew, would the North Koreans and South Koreans be disarmed? If they weren't, they might start war on one another again and the whole thing would start over. Withdrew in 1949 The U. S. withdrew its troops In 1949 from South Korea and the North Koreans attacked in 1950. But neither North nor South Korea Is likely to agree to being disarmed. And if the.TJ. N. withdrew from South Korea, what assurances •would it have that the Chinese or Russians wouldn't secretly build up the North Koreans for a new sudden attack? Meanwhile, the United States, which has paid out so much in lives and money to protect South Korea, would hardly agree to withdraw and not rearm the South Koreans well enough to stand off a new attack until help came. And the Chinese Communists might want some guarantees that the U. S. would not only not encourage Chiang Kai-shek on Formosa to invade China but that It would stop military help to him. That the Chinese would raise the Formosa question seems pretty sure. There is a tricky little symbol—"etc."—in the agreement the U. N. and Communist truce teams agreed on when they said peace talks would begin within three months after an armistice. It's contained In a paragraph which says both peace teams would discuss "the peaceful settlement of the Korean question, etc." What else the Communists might Include under "etc." Is limited only by their imagination.
