MONDAY, NOVEMBER IB, 1954 BLYTHBVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Relations Between So. Korea And Japan Are at Low Ebb Br MURRAY FROMSON SEOUL (AP) — Relations between Japan and South Korea — bitter rivals although two of America's principal allies in the Far-East — are at low ebb. South Korea has indicated no intention of settling its long-standing Seud with Japan, even at the risk of losing American aid. Dr. Karl Hong Ki, Korean government spokesman, said recently, "Japan is rapidly becoming a willing tool of the Communists." He also accused the Japanese of helping smuggle Communist agents into Korea and of flooding the country with narcotics. Even though the Japanese ignore such statements, it is feared they have hurt the possibility of forming a northeast Asia defense alliance, long a rumored but never acknowledged project in U. S. foreign policy plans.

The Koreans have refused to meet again until the Japanese apologize for that remark. Koreans want Japan to withdraw all property claims on Korea. They also want the controversial "Rhee Line" recognized before meetings are resumed. And they want back their national art treasures which they claim Japan took during the occupation. The Knee Line, extending 60 miles out from the Korean coast, is one of the most critical issues. It originally was established by Gen. Douglas MacArthur at the outset of the Korean War in 1950 to clarify areas of military commands. President Syngman Rhee oi South Korea in 1952 directed that the line be considered the boundary of Korean territorial waters. His ships have seized and confiscated 66 Japanese fishing boats and their 690 crewmen within those waters since September 1953. The fishermen were returned but Chicago Wheat Dec .. 226 7 A 227 225% 226 l /i Mch ... 228% 259 227% 228% New York Stocks A T and T 173 3-4 Amer Tobacco 585-8 Anaconda Copper 437-8 Beth Steel 93 1-4 Chrysler 64 5-8 Coca-Cola ......:....

MCCARTHY Continued from Page 1 the floor censure debate on McCarthy was scheduled to resume. The small hearing room in the Senate Office Building was crowded with spectators, television men with their equipment, and reporters. • Watkins said Secretary of the Army Stevens supplied a list of 30 names of Army officers involved in the Peress case to Acting Chairman Mundt (R-SD) of the McCarthy subcommittee last June 23. Watkins said he had talked to Stevens since he got the summons Saturday from McCarthy for today's hearing. Watkins said the secretary showed him the letter sent to Mundt on June 23, and offered to give him in confidence the list of 30 names. But Watkins testified he refused to accept the list and told Stevens that if the McCarthy subcommittee had it, that was all hat was necessary because that group was handling the matter. Stevens believed the list should be confidential, Wntkins said, because making it public would subject "the officers and their famines to unfavorable publicity completely out of proportion to the facts," It also would have harmed the procedures of the inspector general's office which made the detailed investigation of the case, Watkins quoted Stevens as saying. Would Produce Stevens assured him, Watkins :nid, he would "do his level be'st" to produce all of the 30 officers before the McCarthy subcommit- Korea kept the boats. Two Other Issues Two other smouldering issues are little Tokto (Takeshima) IS' land and the need for an increase in Japanese-Korean trade. The Koreans have occupied Tokto, a bleak stack of rocks mid way between the two countries. Both countries claim it. On trade, many feel that Japan's industries are in an excellent position to supply Korea's consumer and capital goods needs but Koreans say this is not so. Tile United States has indicated that unless Korea weakens Its opposition that American aid may be curtailed. There is renewed talk of bringing the adversaries back around the conference table. Some believe the United States, prompted by Red China's growing strength, may have to step in and take a firm stand. American observers here and in Korea don't feel that would accomplish much. They say Korea wants to win the game before It even starts by forcing Japan to give up any bargaining position. tee if they were called. "You can go into executive session and call them in" Watkins testified, adding that this should produce the answer to the question McCarthy long has propounded— who promoted Peress and who gave him an honorable discharge. McCarthy's immediate response to Watkins' testimony was to comment "I don't want to waste my time or that of the other senaors here." Peress, now a New York City dentist, was promoted to major and given an honorable discharge despite his refusal to fill out an Army security form and his invoking the Fifth Amendment last January when asked by McCarthy about alleged Communist activities. Some confusion attended the call for the session of McCarthy's investigations subcommittee. Sen. McClellan of Arkansas, the ranking Democratic member, said he did not get notice of it until shortly before it convened. The session was originally set for 9 a. m. then postponed to 10 o'clock. There was some misunderstanding, even among McCarthy's staff, right up to the opening minute as to whether it would be public or held behind closed doors. At the end it was open with a glare of klieg lightsan d With movie news cameras grinding away. McClellan was on hand when McCarthy raped his gavel. So was Sen. Symington (D-Mo). A little later Sens. Jackson (D-Wash) and Dirksen (R-I11) came In. The absent members were Sens. Potter (R-Mich) and Mundt <R- SD). Watkins himself showed up just before 9 o'clock and had a wait of more than an hour. The hearing delay pushed the Gl Sailors Rescued from Tokyo Bay YOKOHAMA, Japan W — sl * U S. airmen were pulled out of tne cold 'ind choppy waters of Toxyo Ba yesterday after their 26'u-foot yacht Geisha Girl capsized on a racing turn.
