Cheer From House Churchill said the big power conference he suggested -should be composed of the smallest number of powers and persons possible, and they should meet with a measure | of informality and a still greater j^,. • measure of privacy and seclusion." \*lU)J The House gave him a loud cheer when he said: "I must make it plain Unit in __. spite of all the uncertainties and croft Terry and Jimmy Richardson Chicago Wheat confusion in which world affairs will be speakers Thursday night 3 and plunged.

President Oil Smythc w,ll preside , Largely optimistic In tone, Churchill injected a note of warn- ta "To fail to maintain our defense j ter'and Mr. Smythe is to be topic-j effort up to the limit of our strength would be to paralyze j every beneficient tendency towards; peace in Europe and Asia. "This would be the most fatal moment for free nations to relax their comradeship and preparation." Churchill opened with a discussion of Korea, saying the Communist truce proposals require sympathetic examination.

The Communist compromise proposal on Korea calls for establishment of a committee of five neutral nations to handle the problem of war prisoner repatriation. The United States opposes the forced repatriation of Chinese and North Korean prisoners now in the hands of the United Nations. Churchill described the conclusion of a Korean truce as the "immediate aim" of British diplomacy. He added: "I should be very content with even ft truce and a cease fire for the moment. ' 'Terrible injuries have been done each other by the North and South Korean Armies. But even if both sides only stood still where they were now and ceased fire and tried to replace foreign troops by Korean forces—even if only that happened—time might once again prove to be a heavier." Position Less Service Referring to the expansion of the . Communist-directed military offensive In Indochina, Churchill said he was informed that the position of the anti-Communist forces there now was less severe than was assumed at one lime. * "Measures taken by the French, together with the arrival of the rainy season, will probably give a lull of several months," he said. In' my opinion the sudden advance ot elements of the (Com- munited Viet Minn forces to-vard the Siamese frontier ought not to lead us to conclude that it is a Soviet Inspired move inconsistent with the new attitude of the Soviet government. "This may, unhappily prove to with less than an inch. More than three inches of rain were recorded at Jesslcville, De- Queen, Augusta nnd Newport, where some hail was also reported. The Weather Bureau at Little . Rock snid the extreme southern i nnd northern fringes of the state j got off with the least amount of rainfall. In Blytheville, yesterday's rainfall was guaged at 1.40 inches by R. E. Blaylock, official weather observer for this area. In Jonesboro, high winds nnd a heavy rain blew limbs off trees and inundated the city power plant. Jonesboro streets were flooded and many cars were filled with water. Werner, 22 miles south of Jonesboro, also was hit by winds which blew down a 2-room Negro house. A stove was upset, setting the house afire. Five Negroes escaped without serious injury. A billboard sign in Wciner, just replaced after it was knocked down in a storm a few weeks ngo, was blown down Sfenin today.

"It Is to the work of citizens' groups, so often undertaken in a voluntary basis," Elsenhower added, "that we rightfully look for constructive nnd long-term solutions to problems such as these."
