S.) State Department are determined to build up Japan at the expense of Korea." Rhee told The Associated Press this was a major obstacle in a previous American attempt to mediate Japan-Korea differences and said the. complaint still holds. In the .State Department, the 80-y e a r-old President declared, "there are those who blindly love Japanese and who fail to suspect what they (the Japanese) say. Who believes Japan except you Americans?" Feeling; Unchanged Rhee smilingly demonstrated his unchanged passionate distrust of Japan during the first face*to-face interview he has granted since his defense chiefs threatened to shoot or sink Japanese fishing boats which venture inside the Rhee Line. The line is a no-trespassing zone proclaimed by South Korea from 60 to 200 miles off her shores. Rhee said the threat to shoot or sink stand- as "a fair warning," and added, "As far as I am concerned we are trying to avoid an incident or clash . . . Why should the Korean navy want to shoot Japanese or make trouble if you calmly analyze it? "But if they come with a patrol boat or navy boat, we don't care what happens, we want to defend ourselves." SUN, Undecided Rhee also declared: 1. "I have not decided whether I shall be a candidate for re-election" next year. He charged pro- CommunistJf 1 and pro-Japanese are "raising money in Japan to have one of their friends in my place." It is considered almost certain Rhee will run for a third term. 2. The recent Geneva foreign Ministers conference has made those who believe in conferences with the Communists realize that "such conferences will never get us anywhere. They serve to put the United States and the rest of the free world in a very humiliating position, as each failure reveals the relentless march of the Communists toward their unrepu- diated objectives!" 3.

To Get Priority These include President Eisenhower's open-skv proposal for Russia and the United States to make aerial inspections of each other's country and exchange defense plant blueprints, to avert surprise attacks. Soviet proposals for ground inspection teams also would be given priority.

The action was launched on an eight-mile front last night to silence gun position: Israel claimed fired on , fishing boats and an Israeli police launch Sunday. No one was hurt in that incident. ,Israeli military sources said army units moved in a four- pronged advance aimed at four Syrian positions along the eastern bank of the Sea of Galilee. The positions were in the Kursi Na- quart and Beth Habeq sectors anc in the sector where the Jordan flows into the Sea of Galilee. Blocked "Reinforcement The river leaves that sea again to the south to continue its way toward the Dead Sea. The attacking Israeli units were supported by two detachments to block the approach of Syrian reinforcements Military sources said the Syrian opposition was heaviest in the Jordan Kiver sector. U.N. truce observers rushed to the area to investigate at the first word of thv. Israeli attack. A U.N. spokesman saia the situation in the area was quit now. "Israeli forces advanced against Ihe Syrian positions to silence the batteries responsible for the unprovoked attack atid secure the security of Israeli citizens enlaced in their lawful occupations." the Foreign Ministry declared. Israel claims her territory includes the entire Sea of Galilee, a lake about 13 miles long and 3 to 7 miles wide along whose .Chores many of the events in the lite uf Jesus Christ took place. Syria holds the Northern half of the lake's eastern shore. A narrow strip along the -southern half is held by T-r:tel.

She says she will support Stevenson for the top nomination, and hopes Kefauver will be nominated for vice president.

MILKS NEW DELHI, India (AP) — Nikita Khrushchev today told Indian peasants in a model village being improved with U. S. help that they are victims of "exploitation and discrimination." The excited crowds at Sonepat, 40 miles north of New Delhi, hailed the Soviet Communist party boss and Premier Bulganin with shouts of "long live the Russian emperors" as the two walked for nearly a mile along lines carpeted with rose petals. The village is the shofrplace of India's community development program, a joint Indian-U.S. technical cooperation plan. Khrushchev told the applauding crowd, who listened to a translation in Hindu, that "peasant. everywhere have been deprived of education and other facilities of life." But the peasants in Russii he asserted, "have political power and have built themselves materially and spiritually to the great est extent possible." More than 100,000 The Red party chief recommended "the collectivization of agriculture and its speedy mechanization so that you may have more leisure for studies and other enjoyments. ' More than 100,000 Indians from. the surrounding area packed Sone- pat to see the Russian visitors, who returned to New Delhi yesterday from Kashmir. Many influential indian leaders were upset by Khrushchev's weekend outburst of support for India's claim to the disputed state in the Himalayan foothills. They fear the declaration of the Soviet Communist party boss may fire the controversy between India and Pakistan on the status of the border state. Khrushchev, speaking Saturday during a visit to Kashmir, as serted: "The question of Kashmir a; one of the states of the Republii of India has already been decide b the people of Kashmir. This i the people's own affair." Khrushchev's statement drew prompt reply from Pakistan pre mier Chnudhrl Mohammed All. He said in Karachi the speeche.

In most districts anti-Communist* parties had formed two or more alliances instead of the single solid front which froze the Reds out in many districts in the last voting. The Communists lost. 67 seats in that poll. The split resulted from the feud in the Radical Socialist party between former Premier Pierre Mendes-France and Premier Edyar Faure. Under the French electoral law, a party or alliance winning a majority in a district gets all the seat-s. The anti-Communist, split made majorities in .such districts unlikely, in which case the seats will be distrjbut d on a basis proportional to the vote each party gets.

His outline of administration views and plans likely will be the basic blueprint for 1956 GOP campaigning. The meeting got under way promptly at k 6:30 a.m. In the face of orders from Eisenhower's doctors for a slowdown from his recent work pace, :he schedule called for an afternoon session in addition to th« morning meeting. It was taken for ranted, however, that careful observance would be given to the need for a 2^-hour midday break. The physicians laid stress on that after a weekend check on Eisen- lower's recovery from his September heart attack. "Peace and Prosperity" All the signs indicated the President would offer a program geared closely to the "peace and prosperity" theme which Republican National Chairman Leonard W. Hall has been sounding for months. High 0^ the Eisenhower list may be a broadened farm program aimed at halting falling agricultural prices. Rep. Martin of Massachusetts, the House minority leader, already has forecast proposals offering compromises with the Democrats, on highway and school construction —two controversial issues left over from the last session of Congress. Martin also has forecast tax reduction if the budget is balanced. But Sen. Knowlnnd of California has come out for debt reduction instead of tax- cuts, and has indicated his own farm views may not parallel those of Eisenhower. Normal Recovery A weekend medical report said the President still is recovering normally from his Sept. 24 heart attack. But his personal physician, Maj. Gen. Howard M. Snyder, said Eisenhower has shown signs of "fatigue" after some of his busier periods at Gettysburg. Arrangements now call for a complete rest period from noon until 2:30 p.m. each day, with no interruptions. Otherwise there will ba no changes in his schedule. Snyder suggested the President wait at least until mid-February before deciding whether he feels physically able to seek a second term. Meantime. Eisenhower went ahead with his announced schedule. Tomorrow he will meet both Republican and Democratic congressional leaders for a review of defense and foreign policies before returning to his Gettysburg farm and office to continue his convalescence. Sen.
