Robinson, who claimed "slush" fund hod been raised t assist In Its Investigation. The March Jury was directed t investigate Robinson's claim. At Payetteville, Thomas said h regretted that he had not beei given a chance to be heard by th grand jury before they named him as the initiator of the movement He said, I do not believe thi facts as they (the jury members: know them justify this criticism.' Thomas said that in a convcr sation with Q. L. Porter he had expressed the view that .it was the responsibility of good citl zens to see that there were ade quate funds to investigate our (highway commission) audi thoroughly." He said Porter agreed with him and said he would see what he could do. i Urged Appointment •I have not seen Mr. Spltzberg ten years," Thomas said. He added that when he saw lhat Spitzberg had been naked to assist the >rosecutor he talked to him and irged that he accept the appointment. Spltzberg told him. Thomas said, that beyond a certain amount ot ime and attention he could not afford it and would have to be iompensated. I told him of Q. L. Porter's re- ctlon and views and I felt con- ident other citizens would feel ikewise," Thomas said. The Payetteville banker, refer- Ing to the jury's suggestion that fund would be needed It lould have been raised through ome public officials said: "I would be most anxious to now what public official the rand jury believed would havi articipated in raising funds to urther Investigate this case." Spllzberg said today, "It Is regret- ble that the grand Jury should onsider it proper to criticize the ublic spirited gentlemen who con- ibuted from their own resources the expense of Investigation." He tugged as "untrue" the Infcr- ice by the jury that he received Korean War Casualty Toll Uppedbyl,039 WASHINGTON IIP)— The Defens Department today Teporled 1,03! additional battle casimltles In Ko rea, the largest weekly rlfie since last November 12. The additional toll, reflecting tin recent bitter battles for Westcrr Front hill tops, raised the war tol of Americans killed, wounded anc missing to 132,967. Killed in actloi: Increased 158 to 21,097. The 1st Marine Division reported 554 of the week's casualty increase including 95 of the 183 who were killed in action or died of battle wounds. The army's share of the Increase was 440, largely borne by the Seventh Division fight for "Old Baldy" and Its supporting heights. The marine action was largely centered In the Bunker Hill area, where all but one of the hills taken In Red onslaughts was eventually recaptured. U.N. AMMUNITION (Continued from Page 1) hadn't been able to spend all the money appropriated by Congress for ammunition. Lovett said the chief of ordnanc had authority to make contracts— and if he had wanted to delegat authority In the making of sub contracts then "he should hav asked for It." But he said lack of authority b the army "had absolutely nothing' to do with the problem of gettini ammunition production. Lovett testified before a Senat armed services subcommitte which pushed ahead with nn in quiry into reported ammunition shortages even though there inigh be a negotiated end to the shooting in Korea. Also before the committee wai Lovett's former assistant, W. J McNeil. Lovett and McNeil were asked to give their views in the Senate group's search for the persons and conditions some senators believe were responsible for a serious and sometimes critical lack of ammunition in the hands of American fighting men. Gen. James A. Fleet, retired former U. S. Eighth Army commander, has testified he was unable to carry out even limited missions in Korea due to ammunition shortages. Top military chiefs have said there were some shortages in ammunition reserve stocks but that ' Van Fleet had all he needed to carry out his mission. The full Senate Armed Services Committee has sided With Van Fleet on this issue. Letter Read Lovett's name was injected into the inquiry last month when Van Fleet read Into the record a letter he received last Dec. 1 from Oen. Mark W. Clark, Far Eastern commander of United Nations forces. In this letter, Clark said: "I have just received a personal letter from Secretary Lovett which contains the first firm indication that our ammunition supply situation Is fully appreciated In Washington and that positive action is being Initiated to orient production to meet your requirements. "Mr. Lovett now advises the Army will now deal with the short rounds of ammunition problem »« though we were under full mobilization...." $2.500 for the services of a special Investigator. He said the Investigator was employed by the prosecuting attorney and paid by the county.

The Indonesian delegate took the !oor Immediately afterwards to rovide a starcrng point for prog- ess." He said Indonesia would ay that" in view of the statement y the USSR, it Is our view that the iovlet amendment may provide parting point for progress." He said ndonesla would vote for the reso- utlon as a whole If the, amendments ere adopted. Britain's Sir Gladwyn Jebb Bald his country would approve the first amendment — to take out the praise — since we "are most anxious to reach agreement." But, Jebb added, the second amendment — to take out the reaffir- matlon — "seems to rescind the resolution already passed by the Assembly. That resolution contains POWs (Continued from Page 1) incredibly small." Figure "Controversial" Daniel told newsmen the figure is "controversliil." 'It depends on what category you put them in/ 1 he said. "In other words, how sick is ft man?" Of the (300 ailing 1 prisoners the Communists offered to return, -150 would be South Koreans.

The Communists nrc not ibenil in defining sick and wound:d pri.sonei-s—a reason suggested by Daniel. 2. The Reds may claim .some of he Allied troops they hold have i mbraccd communism and decline epatvtnUou. 3. A final, and more dismaying 'xplanntion, mny be found in the •icds' policy of "liberating" cap- ured soldiers at, the front. The "'ommunist.s have captured many lore U. N. troops than they admit. ome Allied estimates place the otnl nt 65,000. Move tht\n a year ngo, at Pan- munjom. the Reds explained the discrepancy by saying large numbers of captured U. N. troops— | presumably South Koreans — were released at the front. Allied officers believe most of these men wnrr drafted Into the North Korean Army. Since nny disabled captives would hardly be drafted for war service, the U. N. might, reasonably expect to find a hffther proportion of sk-k and Injured in the Red camps than would be normal if the Reds had interned all. their prisoners, If the Reds actually captured 50,000 more Allied troops than they have ever accounted for, Ihe United Nations—applying the Reds' own proportion of 5 per cent—might expect to find about 2,500 more disabled Allied soldiers thnn the 600 admitted by the Reds. The talks Wednesday lasted slightly more than an hour- They resume Thursday nt 11 a. hi. very Important safeguards. I think deleting reafflrmation of the resolution would give the Impression, rightly or wrongly, that we no longer agredd with the principles of that resolution." Jebb remarked he had "seen it suggested that the Soviet action represents a major concession of the Soviet Union. I hone this may be so." He said proof would come when the disarmament commlssioy meets again. At-that time, he hoped "we shall find the Soviet has abandoned Its own proposals or are ready to consider other proposals dispassionately." Some delegates viewed Vishln- sky's amendments us a compromise offer because, though they threw the commission's deliberations wide open again, they did not specifically restate the Russians' own proposals for immediate one- third arms cuts and bans on atomic and germ weapons. The Americans, however, feared Vlshinsky's efforts Lo knock out the proposed endorsement of the commission's previous work, if successful, might be employed later by the Soviets ns a propaganda point against the Western proposals. over, he would not repeat In the Assembly at least the old Soviet demands that the Big Five reduce their conventional arms by one- third Immediately and ban all atomic and germ weapons. Russia's delegate on the disarmament commission can bring them up there later—and probably will. Should the Russian amendment be rejected, the Soviets are expect ed lo vote against the resolutloi continuing the disarmament group It appears certain of endorsemen by the Assembly, however, and tr. Soviets arc expected to continu sitting on the commission. Won't Press For Details Russian Delegate Valerian Zorlr told the Polotical Committee yes terday Moscow would not press de tails of its old germ warfare charge against the U. S. if the American would drop demands for an Impar tial investigation. The Russians alsc want the Americans to ratify thi 1!)25 Geneva Convention banning bacterial weapons. The U. S. has refused to ratify he convention. American delegates contend it is a nonenforcible "paper" prohibition which should be superseded by an effective International program of control for all weapons. The committee was scheduled to meet again today in hopes ot fin- shing up the debate on the U. S. demand that the Reds let neutral observers look into the Western•ejected charges that American airmen dropped germ bombs on North Korea and China. The Americans served notice in advance they would press for the nvestigatlon to clear the record of he charges they contend are Red iropaganda lies. Chief U. S. Delegate Henry Cabot lodge Jr. told the Assembly yesterday that, progress is being made at the Panmunjom talks on prisoners of war and expressed hope the talks would lead to an armistice in Korea. ? The Assembly also was getting ready for the arrival of the new U. N. secretary general, Swedish diplomat Dag Hammarskjold, whom it approved yesterday as successor to Trygve Lie. The Norwegian Lie, first administrative boss of the U. N. and holder of the post for seven years, will turn over the post to the 47- year-old Swede at ceremonies here Friday. Ford Follows GM in Penny Salary Cut DETROIT (IP>— A pcnny-an-hour cost of living pay cut was extended today to more than half a million auto workers. The Ford Motor Co., following the lead of General Motors, announced the pay cut for Its approximately 120,OCU production employes. GM, employer of 397,000 hourly rated workers, took the step yesterday as the first producer In the auto industry to make the move. Another half million auto workers face the same amount of reduction.
