FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PAGE THREB US Presses UNforAction On 11 Airmen Lodge Holds Session With Korean Allies UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) — The United States pressed today for U. N. action to free 11 American airmen jailed by Red China on spy charges. The move brought quick response from America's 15 Korean Allies. U.S. Chief Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. in Washington, called the Allies into emergency session last night, to discuss the speediest course of action. He voiced confidence the U. N. would support any move the Americans might decide on. President Eisenhower told newsmen in Washington yesterday he did not see "how the United Nations can possibly disabuse itself of a feeling of responsibility in this matter, and retain its self- respect." Similar views have been expressed by congressmen. Dulles May Take Hand Informed sources said Eisenhower may underscore his interest in the case by sending Secretary of State Dulles here to take a personal hand. After meeting with the. Allies, Lodge told newsmen: "We will act to do everything we can to keep faith with these men. They are U. N. men as well as U. S. men. This organization qan't go on if it does not stand by people who go to bat for it when it gets into trouble." Soviet Attitude Voiced Denouncing their jailing on what he called "trumped-up charges," U.S. Delegate James J. Wadsworth said conditions were hardly favorable for new Korean negotiations —sought tiy Russia—"at this time when Communist China has lust furnished fresh evidence of its brutal and illegal treatment .of captured personnel of the U.N. command in violation of the armistice agreement." Russia's Jacob Malik indicated the soviet attitude when he said the case of the fliers had nothing to do with the Korean problem. He charged the issue was "concocted artificially because the United States was short of any serious argument." Allied with the United States in Korea were Britain, France, Canada, Australia, Belgium, Colombi , Ethiopia, Greece, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the Philippines, Thailand, South Africa and Turkey. No Reading Time HARTFORD, Conn. (/P)—Edwin E. Smith, Springfield, Mass., English teacher, told the New England Assn. of Teachers of English that most high school students don't read outside the classroom because: "During November, December and January there are football games. Then the students paint scenery, play the piano, stand up on the stage and shimmy and shake and .sing Ricochet Romance; and it's all wonderful. Then they must watch television and they tell me they have jobs in the afternoon and ev.enings. It's no wonder they don't read." No Short Names Pfease WICHITA PALLS, Tex. Oft— The name Victor Edward Kuhl wasn't satisfactory to a 29-year-old airman at Sheppard AJr Force Base. He had it legally changed yesterday to Vytautas Edvareas Kuli- hauskas.

Russians No Longer Eager to Keep Defectors BERLIN Wi — The Kussians arc no longer eager to grunt asylum to Allied servicemen who cross to Soviet-occupied Enst Gormnny. In the past, they welcomed such defectors — usually soldiers in serious (rouble with Uu'ir own army — imtt triod to make iivopuguiuln capital ot the deserlions. But in recent weeks the Russians have sent back seven British soldiers and one American within a few days after they turned up in the East. Western oflicmls believe the Soviets no longer want to be bothered wilh "small fry." I The first instance cropped up three weeks ago when Sgt. Jnmes R. Blssonnette of Grand Rapids, Mich., asked political asylum In the East and was returned. Testimony at his subsequent court-martini for desertion showed he fled to East Germany because I he was in trouble in his infantry unit in Berlin. Soviet authorities got in touch with American liaison officers here and virtually compelled him to go back. Later, seven British privates crossed to East Berlin. Five had broken out of a guardroom at British barracks and the other two went East while on pass. Soviet authorities returned all within • week.
