But If there was international unity on that issue, there was a sharp dissent from South Korea on the latest United Nations truce proposals. Alid at home, dissatisfaction was voiced by members of Congress wilh the current course of events. "Even the best truce under present conditions' will be extremely unsatisfactory," said Sen. Taft. Rep. Hand (E-NJ) took issue with the no-forced repatriation principle, urged that the administration stop "splitting hairs" and get a d.uii* trUc«. Elsenhower's statement, Wh!i:h the White House said Was issued to clear Up unspecified misunderstandings, was a firm declaration that the U. N. will not agree to any plan under which' reluctant prisoners Will be forced to Communist control. "Certain principles inherent in the! United Nations Command position . . . are basic and not subject to change," the President said. "No prisoners will be repatriated by force. No prisoners will be coerced or intimidated in any way. And there must be a definite limit lo the periud of their aptivity. "The procedures used in handling the pr'-;";rs must reflect these principles." South Korea, through Ambassador You Chan Yahg, told the Stale Department late yesterday the latest Allied truce proposals are "completely unsatisfactory. 1 ' Rising anger over the proposals, which have not been officially disclosed, was evident In Seoul.

S. will press for a umfied Korea despite plans for an armistice along the battleline. U. S. officials, disturbed by this"' criticism, expressed confidence that the South Korean objections would not upset current negotiations. They said the idea of a unified Korea would be presseo? nt, a peace conference, set to follow any truce'agreement. The Panmunjom talks are in recess until the weekend, but the Reds asked for a meeting of liaison officers today. The usual purpose of such a session is delivery of a message from one side to the other, Sen. Taft spoke out last night in a speech, read for him by his eon, Robert A. Tuft Jr., to the Cincinnati chapter of the National Conference of Christians and Jews. Tuft himself is in a Cincinnati hospital for observation. "I think we should do our best now to negotiate this truce," he said, "and If we fail, then let England and our other allies know that we are withdrawing from all further peace negotiations in Korea." Taft termed the U. N. an ineffec live agency for halting aggression, and said that in that role it "might as well be forgotten for the mo ment." Sen. Jenner (Rind) demanded in the Senate yesterday that Eisen hower issue a statement "that we PRETTIER than the picture! will not recognize (he bloodstained murderers of Keel China us the legal government of China or *dinlt tliein to the U. N," Ben, H. Alexantlef Smith (HNJ) snid in an interview he thinks "the Communists want a truce in Korea in order to put us on ft spot." "They want to get us Into a posi tlon where they Can say 'let us in the- U. N. and we'll agree to an independent Korea, otherwise we won't, 1 " he said. South Korean sources have Bald the latest Ailed proposal Would turn over to the U. N. General Assembly the fate of war prisoners whose disposition is not settled by a supposedly neutral commission of five nations. Smitli said this ivotild give ths' Chinese Reds a toehdlcl in the U. N., since they probably collld appear as "Interested parties." But Sen. Sparkman (DAla), like Smith a member of the foreign relations committee, said this was not necessarily so. He said the truce offer made by the Allies "adheres quite closely" to the proposals in a resolution by India adopted by the U. N, ,. r W. C.
