U.S. Still Trying To Free Airmen Conference Set With 15 Allies Of Korean War By A. I. GOLDBERG UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. UFi— The United States scheduled another conference with its 15 Korean War allies today to discuss how to push in the U. N. Assembly for release of U. S. airmen and other Allied personnel in Red China's hands. IJecide Resolution The session was expected to decide the language of a resolution to be ^presented to the Assembly later this week, and whether the United States would sponsor it alone or be Joined by its allies. . Later in the day the 15-nation Assembly Steering Committee, .--;-. by Assembly President Eelco N. Van Kleffns. was expected to vote overwhelmingly to add the prisoner question to the Assembly work program.. The Allies, were prepared to withstand demands by Russia for Red China to be invited here tor the debates and then vote for the Assembly to take up the question. An .Assembly session Thursday has already been planned. How Strong? One problem facing, the Allies was how strong a condemnation of Red China to seek. Another was how to make the T I. N. machinery go to work, since the Chinese Communists rejected diplomatic overtures at Geneva and through British channels. Over the weekend, a State Department statement indicated the United States is seeking U. N. action on the two American civilian employes of the Army whose sen- -""c?s were announced along with the 11 airmen. The civilians, John jowney of New Britain, Conn., and Richard Fecteau, of Lynn, Mass., were captured when their plane was shot down in November 1952, but were not listed in the first American call for.U. N. action. Wants Action The further memorandum presented here Saturday by U. S. Delegate Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. said prompt and decisive action was needed "to bring about the release of these 11 officers and men (the Air Force group) and all other captured personnel of the U. N Command still detained." U. S.. sources said all the Korean allies approved the memorandum. Last Aug. 17 the U. N. Command at Panmunjom demanded an accounting; for 2,840 missing Allied soldiers, including 526 Americans, 50 from other Allied forces and 2,264 South Koreans.

Butler, Democratic national chairman- elect, yesterday called the OOP's incapacity to govern." On EisentiOM'er Butler put the finger directly on Eisenhower at a news conference, asserting: "We intend to call to the attention of the American people President Eisenhower's lack of capacity to govern and to unite the people. The responsibility is with the President to see that the nation is united and there is ever-increasing evidence of his lack of capacity to do it." That language was perhaps a little stronger than Stevenson himself was prepared to use. But the former Illinois governor made it clear he thinks the November elections which gave Democrats control of Congress proved the people don't have nearly as much faith in the OOP as they demonstrated in the past for Eisenhower. On this basis, Stevenson has told friends he believes that other Republicans in time will drag Eisenhower down to their much lower level of popularity and that the President will be vulnerable If he runs again. Publicly Silent Stevenson has kept publicly silent on his own plans. He has indicated he is not in an eager- beaver mood for the nomination. Neither has he shut any doors against the possibility. In his own mind, Stevenson was represented as believing that despite any present intentions, Eisenhower will be forced by his par- i" 'a take the GOP nomination in 1956. atevenson's announcement at a SlOO-a-plate dinner here Saturday night that he "cannot participate in party affairs as rigorously as in the past" was accepted generally as indicating only an intention to get off the political speechmaking circuit for a while. Butler, elected by 70 of the committee's 105 votes to succeed Stephen A. Mitchell as national chairman, said the Democrats plan no personal attacks on Eisenhower. "But that does not mean," he said, "that we should refrain from pointed criticism of either actions, or lack of action, that we do not consider in the best interests of the country."

Rlnif* Roads d Cenciefe Will Save Every citizen has a vital stake in building main roads that meet civil and defense traffic needs. You want safe roads. You want roads of proved economy because you pay for them with license fees, gas and other motor vehicle taxes. Most main roads are concrete. Of the most heavily-traveled road sections in the U.S. 92 per cent is concrete. Some of this pavement has been resurfaced but it's the rigid concrete slab that still carries the load. Most of America's heavily- traveled turnpikes also are concrete. Main roads should be built of concrete. It's the safest, most economical pavement. Concrete's light color reflects up to four times more light than dark pavements. You see objects on the road sooner, thus get more time to slow down or stop. Ij you can't ice, you can't he iajel in Concrete has a gritty surface texture that enables you to stop fast id emergencies without skidding, even in wet weather. Concrete is free from hazardous, ruts, washboard ripples and raveled edges. Concrete is moderate in first cost yet can b« designed accurately for any load—and will keep that load-carrying capacity for life. It costs lesi to maintain than other pavements, according to official state highway department records. It lasts longer; engineers now know how to build concrete roads that will serve 50 years or more^ Moderate first cost-flow maintenance expense + long lifc = fou> annual CM!, or savings of millions of dollars for taxpayers.
