A termination dale for the exchange would be set when the head of each liaison group signs the agreement. May Re-open Truce Talks If the agreed upon exchange of sick and wounded POWs is completed to the satisfaction of U. N. Commander Gen. Mark Clark, he has indicated he will agree to a reopening of the full-scale armistice negotiations as suggested March 30 by Red China's Premier, Chou En-Iai. Clark made the U.

The • Reds had ignored all previous U. N. offers to exchange. The Reds agreed on March 28. Two days later, as Moscow began showing a softening attitude in its relations with the re^t of the world, Chou made his proposal for resuming full-scale truce talks The talks were broken off hist Oct 8 when the O. N. failed to get Red agreement on the main prisoner of war exchange issue. The Reds wanted all theirs back. The U N refused to give up the R.ed POWs who have said they do not - tliclr health.

Mrs. Frances Gammill, executive secretary of the Mississippi County Tuberculosis Association, gave the principal address, in which she stressed that tuberculosis can be cured easily if discovered early. She was introduced by John Mayes, county school supervisor. Other speakers Included Dr. T. D. Alexander, president of Shorter College In North Little Rock; Carrie B. White, Dr. Thomas J. Brown, Leo D. Jeffers, George Hollis, A. Walker and James White. Following the talks, an Easter program was presented under the direction of Juanlta Tillmari, Willie Mae Robinson, Robert Wiley, Beatrict Knlghten, B. Boyd, Alice Dupree and Sofa Buckner. wish to return to Communist terri- torv. The U N. said then it would listen to the Reds at Panmunjom a^ain only if they agreed to one of three Allied POW exchange plans or came up With a new plan of their own. Chou's proposal contained over-all POW exchange plan that resembled a U. N.-approved plan proposed by India and quickly rejected by Red China. It also was similar to one proposed by the U N before the earlier negotiations were broken off. But it was unclear on the question of voluntary repatriation. Detailed Statement Asked Clark asked the Red high command Sunday to submit a detailed statement on Chou's plan, "in order that it may be studied while reasonable settlement" of the exchange of sick and wounded POWs is being worked out.- The U. N.holds 132,000 Red POWs. About 51,000 have said they don't want to go back to Communist territory. The Reds said last Dec. 18 they hold 3,198 Americans, about 1,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers, and some 9,000 South Koreans. A Communist P e i P i n g radio broadcast heard in Tokyo Sunday night quoted a Peiping Peoples' Daily editorial that "following the settlement of this question of the repatriation of sick and Injured prisoners of war, we should go further to seek a reasonable settlement of the entire question regarding prisoners of war." The^editorial said "our new proposal" is "a concession" and "designed to bring such a Korean armistice and to go further and to seek a peaceful settlement of the Korean question." At today's Panmunjom meeting, Maj. Gen. Cho declared: "Our side is prepared to repatriate all the sick and injured prisoners of war entitled to be directly repatriated or accommodated in the neutral countries according to the provisions of Article 109 and 110 of the Geneva convention." Article 110 breaks down the Kick and wounded prisoners into categories, some of which would be returned directly to their homelands and other to neutral countries. In messages leading up to tin- new talks, the U. N. had referred only to Article 19 which, in effect provides for direct repatriation and also that no sick or wounded pris oners may be repatriated during hostilities. Article 110 provides that prisoners sent to neutral countries include those expected to recover within one year of the date of theii injury or beginning of their illness The proVision is intended to pre vent such exchanged prisoner: from fighting again after their re covery. It also stipulates that prisoner: whose health is seriously threaten ed by imprisonment may be sen to a neutral country if such a transfer would remove the threat to WHEN YOU THINK OF OnMatice / TH1NKOF UNITED INSURANCE AGENCY Leading legal reserve, old-line companies, approved by every state in the Union and Canada.

The Israel foreign office has already said it will welcome resumptions of relations, broken off following the blasting of the Soviet consulate in Tel Aviv shortly after the arrest of the doctors. The Pravda article, a lead editorial, declared that "leaders of the former Ministry of State Security fell down on the job." It explained: "Former Minister of State Security S. Ignatiev manifested political blindness and gullibility and turned out to be led around by such criminal adventurers as former Deputy Minister Ryumin. who was chief of the Investigatory section which was immediately in charge of the investigation and acted as a secret enemy of our state and our people and who is now arrested." When the doctors were arrested, it was charged they had prescribed faulty medical treatment and caused the deaths of two prominent leaders—Andrei A. Zhdanov, died in 1948 at the age of 52, and Alexander Shcherbakov, who died in 1945 at 44. Falsely Accused It was announced upon the doctors' release that they had been falsely accused and that persons responsible for "incorrect conduct of the investigations" had been arrested and brought to Justice.

BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS ADENAUER (Continued from Page 1) I will be wiser than I am now and then I will answer all your questions." Adenauer, who goes to Washington tomorrow, will be in this country for 13 days. He said he plans visits at universities here and in Chicago, and plans to fly to the West Coast "to get some idea of the magnitude of your country." James B. Conant, U. S. high commissioner for Germany, flew here yesterday from Bonn. He will attend Adenauer's conferences with the President and Secretary of State Dulles in Washington. Adenauer, like the President, is a strong supporter of Western European unity. His support of plans to put 50,000 Germans back into uniform as part of a European army has powerful opposition in his own country and in a nervous France. Of the six national legislatures which must ratify the army treaty, only the German Parliament's lower house has approved it. Wants Promise or Aid It would seem Adenauer also hopes to take home with him some substantial promises to aid him some substantial promises to aid lirn override political opposition. Adenauer faces the task of plunging immediately into an election campaign upon his return to Bonn. Its Christian Democratic party vill be seeking another four-year ,erm. The problems Adenauer is taking to Washington include: 1. More U. S. economic aid. 2. Military aid. 3. Help in solving the quarrel vith France over the rich indus- ,rial Saar. 4. What are the new tenants of the Kremlin up to, «nd what does It mean to a divided Germany? And it fifth, and probably the knottiest: How can the West Germans be rearmed if France finally balks on the European army plan? En route here aboard the liner United States, Adenauer already has spoken out on Moscow's growing peace offensive. He said Western statesmen should examine the moves of Premier Georgi Malen- kov's government "like detectives." He added: "There have been positive as well as negative clues to the change in Soviet policy." Negro Grade Students Give faster Playlet An Easter playlet entitled. "The Christ the Children Knew" was given in the Elm Street Grade School assembly Friday by the fifth grade section of Jewell Faucett's room. Other numbers on the program included songs and recitations. Following the program, Shirley Brown, a second grade pupil in Arizona Haley's section, was crowned "Easter Lassie" and was presented a dress by Octavia Shivers and Ollie Rae Sumerall, who sponsored the contest in which 20 pupils participated.
