A statement by Prime Minister Jawanwl*! Nehru of India, endors- toff toe molt recent Communist propoul for the repatriation of priaonin of war, drew caustic <JlM*nt from tome senators, among them Sen. Knowland (E-Calif) and led. Potter (R-MIch). Sen. Humphrey (D-Mlnn) said the various statements of the transatlantic debate Indicate to him there ought to, be an immediate meeting of the' free world's foreign ministers. Such a meeting, he said, should aim at "a new harmony which will place our minor disagreements to their proper per- •pective." The disagreements were apparent in the crossfire of statements by Clement Attlee, former British prime Minister, and other British Labor party leaders, Nehru and members of Congress, as we,, as an announced move by India's delegate to the United Nations. Attlea said in Parliament Tuesday that some elements in the U. S. really did not want peace, that Congress hampered America's executive branch and it was sometimes hard to tell whether President Elsenhower or McCarthy had more power to foreign policy matters. in a Senate speech Thursday McCarthy called Attlee a "pygmy" whoa* statement insulted Eisenhower and the American people. Aneurin Sevan, leader of the British Labor party's left wing faction, cast aside factional dlffer- lut night to rally behind Dclinr Talk Rajejhwar Dayal, India's permanent delegate to the U. N. ex- pretsed a desire to talk over truce negotiations With the U. S. dele- gat on. This came after Nehru had stated a preference for the Com- muniat proposal on handling pris- oners ot War. Dayal said India wants an ex planatlon ot what It regards as startling departures by U. N. Com mand negotiators from the U. N plan for ending the prisoner dead lock. The O. N. Assembly plan, ap proved last December, was based on a resolution offered by India and backed by the U. S. under It, a repatriation commission woulc take over the prisoners and senc home those who wanted to go home, referring the reluctant one to a political conference and the holdouts among them to the U. N ultimately. The Communists proposed a five- nation commission, including India to handle repatriation for four months, with a political conference ruling on those prisoners who refuse to go home. The American counter-proposa! was to release all Korean prisoner after an armistice, with a commission caring for non-Koreans who declined repatriation. Communists could visit these for 60 days to try to change their minds. Those still holding out would then be freed. Reaffirm Principle The State Depatment issued a statement in Washington yesterday in which it reaffirmed that freedom of choice for the prisoners was a principle "vital to the whole free world" and can not be compromised. Truce talks went into recess unti] May 20, at the request of the Allies McCarthy, meanwhile, promised further fireworks In his bitter word battle with Attlee. The senator said he Intends to develop, at a meeting of his investigations subcommittee next Wednesday, his charges that some ships engaged In trade with Communist China and flying the British flag are actually owned by .he Reds. McCarthy's Wisconsin Republican colleague, Chairman Wiley of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told the Senate yesterday this is no time for "hot headed folks" to be engaging in forenslcs.

Police Nab 250 Rioters in Berlin BERLIN (/P) — West Berlin police arre«ted 250 rioters last night in breaking up a mob ol about 1,000 young German leftists attempting to storm a political meeting. The rioters tried to smash into Tltanla Palace, a former American Army theater, to break up a meeting by 12,000 members of the Deutsche Partie (German party), a rightist group which the attackers branded as Nazi.

A letter that Mrs. Oatis had written to the Czech President ' appealing for the release of her husband was credited with being Instrumental in getting the pardon.

Ike Cruising Before Speech NORFOLK, Va. (/P) — President Elsenhower cruised in Chesapeake Bay today before heading for Washing to work on the address he will make Tuesday night on the related subjects of national security, federal spending and taxes.

The repatriation commission would take custody of 14,500 Chinese for two months, and those who refuse repatriation after Red explanations would be freed. India's delegation to the United Nations said Friday It will ask the United States to explain what India regards as three major differences between the U. N. Command proposal at Panmunjom and :he plan approved by the U. N. Assembly last December. Prime Minister Nehru of India IBS said the Indian plan closely •esembles that offered by the Communists. Harrison told Red negotiators Saturday that their proposal easily could result in the coercion of jrisoners into returning to Communist-ruled homelands against their will. North Korean Gen. Nam II re- llied that the Communists never lave been "advocating forcible repatriation." The Indian proposal adopted by the U; N. Assembly would turn 3alky prisoners over to the United Nations if no agreement were •cached within 30 days. Communist negotiators hinted Saturday that they might possibly modify this particular phase ot ;helr proposal.

(JP) — There's a quiet bedroom in a modest Phoenix home that has been waiting for Associated Press Correspondent William Qatls for a long time. And a. proud father is hoping he will came here to make use of It. J. Ross Oatis, 61, who accepted the news of his son's pardon from a'Czechoslovaltinn prison with caution at first and then rising optimism, thinks a long rest in a warm desert climate might, help him forget his ordeal of the past two years. "I have a nice place with a bedroom I've saved for Bill," he said. "No one has ever slept in it yet." Oatis, who runs the Oatis photo lab in Phoenix, talked slowly and calmly of the news reports that his boy had been set free. "I only hope It is true," he said in a telephone Interview.

The Americans counted 152 Reds tilled or wounded. Another 206 Communist casual- les were inflicted by ROK troops when three companies of Chinese —some 500 men, assaulted Sniper Ridge and Jane Russell Hill on Triangle Hill.

There were some smaller :Iashes on the Central Sector. Other fronts along the curving 55-mile battlefront , were quiet, Imited only to patrol actions.

DELL —THEATER— Dell, Arkansas Box Office Open 6:45 SUNDAY & MONDAY [\ • • • • • • Mississippi Gambler" Tyrone Power / Piptr Laurie Julia Adams (Continued from Page 1) dared: "We are already integrated to the full extent contemplated by Amendment 28, and the Supreme Court already has full authority see that any lawyer lives up to his professional obligations." Amendment 28 is that provision in the Arkansas Constitution which gives the Supreme Court authority to regulate the practice of law and the "professional conduct of attorneys." "If the Arkansas bar should be under the direct control and supervision of the Arkansas Supreme Court, why not integrate the American Bar Association under the Su- reme Court of the United States?" Gantt asked. Gantt predicts that "If this Su preme Court order stands, this will be the last meeting we'll ever have of the Arkansas Bar Association." This assertion was in line with contention of opponents of integration and that an integrated bar would mean the end of the Arkansas Bar Association as a voluntary organization. Chief spokesman against the resolution — and for integration — was Joe C. Barrett of Jonesboro, who declared that leaders of the Association had been seeking integration for 15 years or more. He urged the Association to heed ;he experiences of other states which have tried integration. All of these, Barrett said, went through experiences similar to that of Arkansas before integration was approved, but none has since abandoned the system. He was supported by Prosecutor William J. Arnold of Batesville, who said he believed most younger members of the Bar favored inte- ration and that the arguments of 'regimentation" and the like ad- '^ced against It were groundless. The Association elevated former Lt. Gov. James L. (Bex) Shaver of .Vynne from the vice presidency to succeed Triplett as president. That was in line with an Assocla- ,ion custom which calls for advancement of the vice president vithout opposition.

By Marion /V*wr Cfvmten to HIT Maiiar A Royal romance has no privacy. While motoring, and even whili Princess Elizabeth and Lieut. Philip Mounthatten always Tornado Damage Toll ST. LOUIS i.'™—Tornadoes in six Midwestern and Southwestern states destroyed 549 homes and 984 other buildings since last Friday, the Midwestern Headquarters of the American Red Cross reported today. Another 2.536 homes and 1,146 other buildings were damaged. CHAPTER 10 Plenty of romances have been written about the loves of Princesses, but the settings are foreign and strange, and the Princesses are nothing at all like real Princesses. The story of the factory girl who is loved by a Lord and becomes a Marchioness can hardly thrill a girl to whom Marchionesses must :urtsy. The love of a real Princess is important not only to herself and ;o the man she chooses, but also millions of other people. It is an affair of State. And yet, as we have seen, It can be truly a love affair. It certainly is so with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. In the clays when Princess Elizaaeth first questioned me about ove and marriage, there was no bought in anyone's mind that she would ever be married to the /oung Prince of Greece and Denmark, who could speak neither Greek nor Danish, but was known o be a first-class cricketer and a teen yachtsman. That the Heiress to the Throne vould stay unmarried was un- hinkable. The first Queen Elizabeth went unwed throughout her ife, but times had changed since hen. j So our Princess Elizabeth in due course of events would marry— )ut whom? The field could not be wide. Only a few can be considered when the question of choosing a husband for a future Queen arises, There was a great deal of guesswork and speculation, but from my own observation I must say j now that no serious effort was made to choose a husband for Princess Elizabeth. The choice was her own. Naturally, as any girl growing into womanhood does, Queen Elizabeth often spoke to me of love and mpiringe. Far from avoiding Ihe subject, I welcomed it. It seemed to me that at this time, lon^: before her engagement, such a discussion would be of help to her only as it was then possible to talk of marriage as woman to woman detacheclly and without the introduction of any personalities. Whenever she asked me questions, I tried to answer ns truthfully and clearly as possible. In her own circle, she had seen happy marriages, and she was anxious that her own marriage, when the time came, should follow this pattern. "What, Crawfie," she would ask, "makes a person fall in love?" Then I would try to explain to her the deep common interests that can not only first draw a man and a woman together immediately, but hold them together for life. "When you marry," I once told her, "you must not expect the honeymoon to last forever. Sooner or later you will meet the stresses and strains of everyday life. You must not expect your husband to be constantly at your side or always to receive from him the extravagant affection of the first few months. "A man has his own men friends, hobbies, and interests in which you cannot and will not want to share. A man's life is built on the foundation of a happy marriage. A good wife realizes that and will help him eve.-y way she can." The Princess listened attentively to these words. But she had read and heard there were homes Without that atomosphere of love and affection which had surrounded her all her life. One morning. I found her depressed. The newspapers were full of the divorce of an acquaintance of hers. "Why do people do it, Crawfie?" , she asked me. "How can they break up a home when there are children to consider?" It was difficult for her, who had e taking short walks together, were ID the limelight. never seen anything but the perfection of her parents' home life, to realize tnat some personalities are incompatible, some homes unhappy. But since there were such people, she asked, why did they get married in the first place? She was deeply distressed by this. I tried to explain to her that many marriages had been .contracted in wartime, on impulse alone, without reasonable vellec- tiop or true love. I tried to explain that the shortage of houses made marriage difficult for some people. It is hard for a Princess brought up in a Palace with endless rooms to appreciate that. But she tried to. We mus f , remember now that a Royal Princess has nothing like the same freedom to fall in love and marry that most other girls have. Most of the romances she reads are about a world that she does not and can never know, about people of different back- rounds who meet and part, quarrel and make it up again, as a Princess, trained to self-control, cannot do. When I hear of Hollywood stars who complain that successful marriage is impossible for people like themselves, "Living in a goldfish bowl" and never having a minute to themselves, I stop and think of the much greater trials Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip have had to face in their marriage.

Committee Okays Bill to Bar Unused Vacation Pay WASHINGTON UP) — The Senate Post Office and Civil Service Committee has approved a bill to bar top government officials from col- ; lecting cash settlements for unused vacations. But the bill, as the committee approved it yesterday, would allow the President if he wishes, to give : his appointees longer vacations than the 13 days a year now allowed by law. The measure stemmed from d:|f closure that many outgoing men? hers of the Truman administration collected thousands of dollars for vacation leave they had accumulated but never used. Sen. Williams (R-Del) had charged, too, that some government workers were fired one day, paid in cash for vacation leave due, then hired back within a few hours. He called it a racket.
