(Continued from Page 1) not negotiate in good faith." A reporter had asked him If the UNO was considering a new Bus- pension. "I think it Is far too early to come to any definite conclusion on a matter of that kind," Harrison said. He added that no one can reasonably expect negotiations, where two sides are far apart, to give any clear Indications at the start. Proposal "Unacceptable" Harrison opened the meeting by :elling North Korean Gen. Nam II .hat a six-point proposal by Nam Sunday was "unreasonable nnd obstructive." He later said bluntly that the proposal was "unacceptable" and that the Communists "have proposed nothing which we can consider as either a reasonable or constructive basis for an armistice agreement." Nam devoted his remarks to a restatement of the Communist pro- >osal. It calls for: 1. Within two months after an irmlstice, .repatriating those pris- >ners who want to go home. 2. Within another month, Bend- ng to a neutral state, to be chosen >y the negotiators, all who refuse o go home. 3. Six months for making "ex- tlanations" to the refusing prison- rs by representatives of their lOmelands. 4. Sending home those who hange their minds. 5. If there are still some left who refuse repatriation, leaving their fate up to a high-level post- armistice, political conference. 6- Ail expenses of prisoners held in a neutral slate to be paid by their homelands. To this plan. Harrison said; "It is a proposal fo: their (the prisoners) indefinite retention. Many of these men have been held in custody unnecessarily for nearly two years as a result of the unwillingness of your side to recognize their attitude. . . . These captured personnel have the right to be released from custody as soon after an armistice as is practicable." Harrison continued: "Does your proposal drag on the captivity of the captured personnel endlessly or until that day, when exhausted and discouraged, they are forced to accept the fact that -here is no alternative to endless captivity?" At the outset Harrison berated Nam for the Communist refusal to accept the Allied plan to make Switzerland the neutral state which would take custody of balking prisoners while still keeping them in Korea. "You implied," Harrison said, "that we nominated Switzerland in order that it would represent our side alone rather than to serve in the role of a true neutral. Your argument ... is groundless."

That's why over three million Americans have "planted" their money in electric light and power companies. Time people are direct owners. Eighty-six million people own life insurance, sixty-five million have savings accounts. They are indirect owners, because banks and insurance companies know they're on good safe ground when they invest t'neii policy owners' and depositors' money in electric companies securities. That means that electric light and power companies — like this one - serve millions of people two ways: one, with good, dependable, inexpensive service; two, as fertile soil for investment of savings.
