THURSDAY, MAY 28,1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NTN1 Ike in Disagreement With Taft's Statement (Continued from Page 1) to act by Itself. But, Eisenhower added, you can't have cooperative action In these great matters only in isolated cases. i, Mult Have Frlendi He said that if you go it alone !n one place, you, of course, have *»-£o it alone elsewhere, '"instead of taking that kind of course, Eisenhower said, there must be compromises which will serve the good of all of us. Those compromises, he added, must b« between local conflicting considerations. He said no single free nation can live alone In • the world, but must have friends. Eisenhower said he realizes that every man is. faced with irritations and frustrations in the business of trying to win world peace, and that men find themselves balked. Eisenhower said then with much feeling that only patience, optimism and a very deep faith can carry America forward. After giving this dissertation, the President apologized for the length of it but said he felt it was something that had to be said. Later in the news conference, Eisenhower was asked whether he was aware that Taft—besides say- Ing that the U. S. might as well forget the U, N. so far as the Korean War was concerned—also had sild "We must do our best now to .rt"?otlate this truce" and, If we ***J, withdraw from further negotiations. Eisenhower replied that he had not read Taft's speech in detail. He said he believed the senator csrtainly did not mean we should throw everybody out, apparently referring to the United Nations. When newsmen attempted to pursue that point, Eisenhower finally said' that there was appar- Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton Open High Low Close July 3348 3361 3345 3348 Oct 3355 3365 3354 3357 Dec 3361 3368 3359 3359 Mch 3368 3375 3365 3367 New Orleans Cotton Open High Low Close July 3340 3356 3339 3345 Oct 3353 3363 3353 3356 ,,Dec 3351 3367 3351 3362 /-Mch 3364 3373 3363 3366 Soybeans Open High Low Close July . .. 285% 28614 38414 286« Sept . .. 269% 27014 268« 269M Nov . .. 261« 262>J 261!i 26114 Jan . .. 264% 265% 264!4 256!t.

At the news conference, the President also: Defense Budget Best Answer 1. Declared he Is thoroughly convinced that the military high command in general believes the pvo- posed defense budget is the best answer for this country at this moment. There has be.en sharp criticism in Congress of cuts in military spending. The President said he himself as of now feels the proposed spending program will not jeopardize a reasonable posture of defense. \ 2. Said he Is opposed to admitting Red China to the United Nations. 3. Said international trade is a great influence in the hands of diplomats, and certain kinds of East-West trade, in his opinion, should continue. He said no permanent philosophy on that subject has been developed, but added that while there have been instances where Communists have been helped by certain kinds of trade there also have been instances when the free world has benefited. The President said this country would be foolish to refuse to trade at all with people we do not happen to like at the moment. He said if trade were cut off in such cases we might lose the friendship of a country we were trying to win over. No Isolationism 4. Said his mail shows no sign of a growth of isolationism in the IT. S. On the contrary, he added, the great mass of the people obviously believe there is no safety in one country's going it alone. 5. Said he had received no official report but had read newspaper accounts of the unsuccessful attempt of a Romanian legation official to blackmail a naturalized American into spying for the Communists. Eisenhower's conference was well attended and was given over almost entirely to questions and answers. At the outset, the President said he had just been Informed of a Moscow radio broadcast saying that the Soviet military commander in East Berlin had been relieved of all duties except command of troops. Eisenhower said he had no idea as to the possible significance, and that newsmen might as well as ve- ~rain from questioning him about it.

TRUCE Memphis'New TV Station Joins CBS MEMPHIS (IP) —Memphis' second television station, expected to go on the air early this fall, will be n affiliate of the Columbia Broadcasting System.

The city's other T-V station, WMCT, Is a National Broadcasting Company affiliate. (Continued from Page 1) selves stood still. The negotiators are scheduled to meet at Panmunjom Monday after a week-long recess. The Reds are expected to answer the U. N. plan then. Allied and Communist liaison officers met in the truce village for two minutes Thursday. A U. N. spokesman would say only that the session dealt with an administrative matter. The meeting was called by the Allies. Presumably U. N. officers delivered a written message to the Reds without discussion. This is usually the case in such brief meetings. Brigffs Call on RtlM • In another development, TJ. 6. Ambassador Ellis O. Briggs called on South Korean President Syng- mah Rhee in Seoul for the second .ime since the Allies submitted their proposal to the Reds Monday. What went on was not divulged and a spokesman for Khee would not confirm or deny a report ;hat Briggs brought with him a message from Washington. Behind the ROK opposition to the Allied truce plan is the ROK government's . demand for unification with North Korea. Another objec- ,ion stemmed from the Allied plan to give a five-member neutral nation commission custody of sorrte 48,500 prisoners of war unwilling to return to Communist rule. These Include 34,000 North Korean pris- .oners, whom the Ehee government wants released in South Korea immediately following a truce. The South Koreans also object to possible use of Communist satellite troops to handle prisoners while their fate is decided. In a 40-minute report to National Assembly members at Pusan, Pyun complained that the B.OK government was not kept informed of Allied decisions in advance and was not called in for discussions when the proposal was drawn, as were other friendly nations. Pyun said he was "shocked" by SHAKE-UP (Continued from Page 1) while the taking's good. Soviet zone iSermans who have fled to West Berlin report: 1. The Red army has sharply increased Its requisition requirements for food, without increasing the size of its forces. 2. Russian experts have been placed in strategic German industries to expand deliveries of output to the Soviet Union. 3. State ration-free stores are selling only what's on the shelves and are receiving no new shipments. The air of poverty has frightened the East German population anew. After weeks of slowing down, the flow of refugees to the West has suddenly leaped into big figures again. Pour thousand showed up in West Berlin yesterday. Almost 5,000 came across the border over last weekend. The new stream of refugees stems directly' from the fear of hunger. Inspired by the recent Soviet grab policy. WAR (Continued from Page 1) strafe attacking Red troops and Communist artillery and mortar positions. Other fighter-bombers pounded Red supply centers northwest of Yonan and north of Sinchojv in Western Korea, the Air Force said. Pilots reported 13 buildings destroyed. Sabre jets prowled North Korean skies without finding a Communist" MIG willing to fight. Fourteen B29 Superforts dumped 140 tons of bombs on three storage areas near Wonsan on Korea's east coast Wednesday night. The attack followed'a new bom- aardment of the battered port by the battleship New Jersey and other naval warships and carrier planes. The Navy said the New Jersey destroyed two 76 MM coastal de- ense guns and heavily damaged another. Hits were scored on five shore batteries. / he Eisenhower administration's policy. "The aftermath on such an appeasement policy," he said, "will result in accepting Communist China In the United Nations." He .said it would "inevitably lead the whole of Asia to communism." Choi sidestepped a question from ,he floor on whether the South Korean truce delegate would continue boycott the Panmunjom nego- .iatlons. Gen. Choi refused to attend the last meeting, at which the new Allied plan was presented. FARM | (Continued from Page 1) today he said. "The remainder goes for transportation, processing and other In-between handling. Hood urged farmers to utilize curb markets, and direct selling to chain stores to eliminate the country buyer, wholesaler and jobber. Hood also told Arkansas farm leaders to take advantage of "shortage months on such products as eggs, livestock and milk. Prices of these Hems are higher then. Farmers also should concentrate on new marketing methods such as milk dispensers, selling milk in gallon jugs and packaging of fruits and vegetables fresh on the farm, he said. Hood said emphasis should be placed in self-help programs by farmers to get away from government assistance. The clinic is sponsored by the Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation, the Extension Service and the Arkansas Chain Stores Council. FOREIGN AID (Continued from Page 1) tlons under the program. The House and Senate foreign affairs groups are currently studying the administration requests for an authorized program of $5,828,000,000 next year. The actual appropriations must be voted later. In his letter, Rand said the 354 million dollar reduction represents saivngs through lower costs, deferment of some military programs not immediately necessary, and such things as over-estimates on crating and transportation costs.
