, WAT If, 1988 BLTTHEVtLLE (AMC.T CTOHIER WBW» PAGE ELEVEN Step Backward, Communists Say Nit-Point Plan Proposal Gives Okay To a Five-Nation Prisoner Commission (Continued from Page 1) custody of » neutral commi Ion. , t jt. Conditional acceptance of th Rhmunist nomination of Indi oland, Czechoslovakia, Swede nd Switzerland as members i he custodial commission—but on! India heads the body .and pr ides any troops needed. 3. Rejection of the Reds' prop a! that a political conference ermine the fate of prisoners using to go home after being ; eutral custody. v The Allied plan voiced no objei on to the Bed proposal that rep isentattves of the Communist gov rnments be permitted to expla hings to reluctant prisoners. Hbu. ver, the Allies warned again ny effort to intimidate or. fore le prisoners. "It is an excellent basis for a rmistice," Harrison told Nam. H skcd the Communists to study in the same spirit of constructiv egotiations in which we hav udied your eight-point proposa n.which it is based." Nam 'observed coldly that th Hies had not accepted the Com lunist proposal, which the Red ad put on an ''all or none" basis r said the new Allied proposa "a step backwards from th iree-point proposals put forwar the letter of April 16 by you de." , I The Allies had nominated Sw: ;rland as a neutral to handle a :luctant prisoners. "Obviously," Nam went on, "thi not an attitude that should b iken in the negotiations, but or at threatens the prospects of th bole armistice riegotiatons." Would Constitute Charter Harrison told newsmen the de iled Allied plan "would const te the charter" for the neutra itions' duties. He said the U. N. Comman und "a major portion" of th >mmunist plan acceptable bu ere were portions "we cannot ac pt in their present form." The Allied counterproposal rule t the postarmistice political con rence as a final court to dccid e fate of prisoners, sets a 60 time limit during which pris ers may be given "explanations' id spells out the function of th /e - nation repatriation com isslon. Speaking of turning prisoner ho refuse repatriation over to th utral nations commission, Harri n said:: . ' "The United Nations Commani cepts this point for non-Korean isoners of war. Prisoners </ orean nationality who have elect not to avail themselves of the ght to be repatriated should bi leased to civilian status on thi le the armistice becomes ef ctive." He said any Korean who sub quently desired to be repatriatec mid be free to do so and Would given "all assistance in so re; rnlng." 'Your side followed this proce^ re throughout the course of the rean War," Harrison -said, re •ring to^ Communist arguments at many prisoners they capturec rly in the war were freed a e front. 'The United Nations Command cedes to the viewpoint of your e that explanations te made to e prisoners provided it is clearly derstood that the prisoner is noi be subjected to force or coer- >n of any kind to prevent or to ect his repatriation." Harrison said Allied acceptance this point was clearly condi- 25ied on "the mutual acceptnce >f terms which will insure that the explanations are not coercive in lature." The Allied counterproposal w lown to iforea Tuesday by Oen. tfark Clark, U. N. commander, ollowing its approval in Washing- on, Harrison spent an hour and a alf reading the plan to the Reds.

Rental of nearly 1,200 acres of base land for farming purposes was authorized by the Co\mcil last night. In all cases, rental of the land would be at the renter's own risk. Ward Gets 1.000 Acres Of this land, 1,000 acres, located east of the runways, was leased to Lloyd Ward of Blytheville with rental set at the value of one- third of the soybeans and one- fourth of the cotton raised on the land. In a resolution authorizing rental of the base land', it was specified that the land would be rented to Mr. Ward, who was represented last night by Mr. Fendler., In bringing up the ma tier of base land rental, Mr. Fendler told the Council that the air base fund trustees, B. A. Lynch and E. M. Regenold, had decided the 192 acres of added base land purchased or optioned by the city should be vented only at the renter's risk should the Air Force move in before the crops were harvested. The resolution approved rentfll'of this land, nearly nil of which the .city now holds title to, on the "third and fourth" basis. Mr. Fendler also reported to the Council that the Federal Housing Administration has changed its mind about wanting to sell the city 40 acres and 204 dwelling units comprising the Veterans Housing Quarters at the base. About four years ago,, the cily tried to acquire this property, but the FHA wasn't interested in Kcll- ing, he said. Recently, however, the FHA wrote him offering to sell for $8,696.14. Sees Free Grant At Mr. Fendler's suggestion, the iouncil adopted a resolution on transfer of the quarters Lo Ihe cily but made no committment on the price. Mr. Fendler said he felt the ;ity could acquire the property without cost by negotiating with the government under the Lanham Act, which provides for grants of .his nature to cities. Mayor Dan BlodRett said that; according to unofficial information 1 given him, the Air Force feels It cannot justify spending money on rehabilitation of these units for their use while giving airmen quarters allowances. In a brief discussion of the apparently stalemated loth Street paving situation, the mayor announced that the Blytheville School Board had offered to put up only $2,500 as their share In this $30.000 project. The cit.y is awaiting further word from the school board before taking action, he said. Mayor Blodgett also said the long-delayed conference between city Officials and attorneys for Blytheville Water Co.. on the proposed boost in the utility's annual payment to the city may be held this week. An ordinance increasing this payment from $650 to $8,000 a year passed Its second reading two months ago. Water company officials then asked for this conference before a final vote was taken. The utility has threatened to cut oft what it sa'ys is free water serv- ice'to schools and the city if the raise goes through. The city, however, has displayed no concern for this tnreat. Street "Work Asked In regard to city streets, the Council was told: Residents along a 525-foot strip on South Second Street have collected funds for a paving project and seek cit,y participation on the usual basis of property owners paying for materials and the city providing the labor and equipment.

(AP) — An explosion forced the crew of a mothering bomber to jettison a highly secret rocket plane last night, and two airmen fell from 30,000 feet over Lake Ontario. The chief test pilot of the Bell Aircraft Corp. and another crewman were feared lost. The E50 bomber was carrying the experimental Bell X2, reported capable or flying at speeds well over 1,000 miles an hour. A widespread search v/ns on io- tiay for the two men, but scant hope was held that they survived. It was reported that the para- chule of Ihe test pilot, Jean L. (Skip) ZlcKler, 32, did not open. The other crewman, whom the aircraft firm declined to identify except to say he was a Bell em- ploye, reportedly parachuted from the bomber. Both Dropped Out A Bell spokesman said no one was in the X2 when it was dropped Into the lake about 15 miles from Rochester. It was indicated that both men dropped out a! the four-engine mother plane which was damaged but landed snfely here. The .spokesman said the explosion was aboard the mother ship. But he explained that the X2 was damaged and that the complicated mechanisms of carrying a "parasite" plane made it difficult to be certain thai me X2 itself did not explode. He said the firm had been unable to determine the cause ot the explosion. Conway Missionary, 6 Other Repatriates Arrive in U.
