MONDAY, APRIL 27, 1053 m/TTHEVILT,E (ARK.)' COURIER rxtrs Sfi V EN ROW Exchange. Brought Happiness to Some and Disappointment to Others By The Associated Press The prisoner of war exchange brought happiness and relief to a comparative handful of American families but for thousands of others it meant disappointment and more dreary days of waiting. In the seven-day period last week, 149 Americans regained their freedom in Korea. % But there are an estimated 'V&;000 more still in Communist hands. The end of the exchange Saturday dashed the hopes of their relatives who had waited tensely throughout the week for word their servicemen might be among those freed. Thirteen Americans were in Saturday's trade. , Among the lucky relatives were Mr. and Mrs. Henry 'Clay Dean of Douglass, Kan. They are parents of Air Force Capt. Zach Dean, released after two years. "I'm wonderfully happy," Mrs. Dean told a reporter. "At first I cried but the tears are all gone now." At Lawton, Okla., Mrs. Cleola Green, wife of Army Capt. Marin W. Green, said: "I'll bet if you could take my heart beat right now it will be going !IO miles an hour." Mrs. Jose 'Villegas, who lives near San Antonio, Tex., said through an interpreter she, her husband and their eight other children often prayed at a small shrine erected in honor of their son, Cpl. Ellas B. Villegas. 24. He was freed after two years and five months. "I knew my boy would come home," said Mrs. Villegas. News of Pvt. Earl L. Beck's release momentarily stunned his mother, Mrs. Nellie M. Koopman of Wheeling, W. Va. Then she exclaimed: "Bless God, I've prayed every day. Bless God." Annual Daylight Saving Debate Due in Lower Chamber Today By B. L. LIVINGSTONE 4 WASHINGTON W—Today is the day when the House makes its annual stand in defense of the sleeping habits of the cows and chickens. At issue is the desire of voteless citizens of the District of Columbia to get up an hour earlier this summer. Daylight saving time began' at 2 a. m. yesterday for an estimated 60 million Americans. • But not in the nation's capital, where Congress acts as a city council. It's still Eastern Standard Time here. The Senate already has passed a bill authorizing the District commissioners to move Washington's clocks ahead an hour. But the House didn't get around to debating it until today. When all the oratorical shooting is over. Congress probably will approve—as it ahwys has—the right of the District to go on fast time if it wants to. But not before the champions of the barnyard take advantage of the annual April whingciing to get on the good side of the farm.folks back home by denouncing daylight time. This year some 26 states with large rural populations remained on standard time. They take a dim view of daylight time on the indisputable grounds that milking, and roosting habits aren't controlled by the clock. Middle Western barnyards wouldn't be affected by a change in clocks here, but congressmen with rural constituents nonetheless denounce "fast time" on principle. It probably will be at least several days before a daylight time bill becomes law in Washington. House and Senate versions differ, necessary.
