FRIDAY, MAT 29, 1953 BLTTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGET!fRBB Ike and Taft Avoid Major Split Over Views on Far East (Continued from Page 1) directly from Eisenhower's corn- merits on the Taft speech. Normally, the President's remarks at news conferences may not tis quoted directly. These differenes of opincion be- 1 tween the two men followed closely a we-marked division- of views within the Republican party. Their trend loreign policy debate is likely to take in Congress. Taft's colleagues among Senate GOP leaders discounted talk of a break that might split the party, although none of them wanted to talk publicly about the differences between the President and the senator. Sen. Saltonstall of Massachusetts, assistant GOP leader, didn't want to comment on either Taft's speech or Eisenhower's news conference remarks. But he added: "I have faith that the United Nations will be a helpful organization in maintaining the peace of the world and I am not ready to give up that faith. Eased Minds In New York, U. N. delegates would not comment for publication, but they indicated that Eisenhower's stand had eased their minds considerably of concern wcich they felt over Taft's speech. Sen. Bricker (R-Ohio) inclined toward the Taft view, and commented -that so far- "Congress hasn't had very much to say about the conduct of the Korean War." But he, too, saw no "split" between Taft and the President end called for the "fullest presentation of both points of view." Sen. Green (D-RI) said Elsen- hower was too easy on Taft. "It should have had a much belter effect both at home and abroad U Mr. Eisenhower had expressed the resentment he should feel," Green declared. "I should think the President would have resented Mr. Taft'e statement because it handicaps him in foreign relations. It Is not only bad taste bui- disloyalty to the President to throw a monkey wrench into the machinery of foreign relations, and that Is what Taft has done." Sen. Lehman (D-Lib, NY) said he agrees with Eisenhower "and I am very glad he took that position." "It may help to clear up some of the confusion," Lehman said. "Unless we are careful, we are going to break up the unity of the free World." Sen. Copper (R-Ky), a former U. S. delegate to the U. N. General Asembly, said in a speech here last night: "We should weigh the values of the United Nations from -. selfish standpoint and then as a forum for negotiations for peace and we should not allow provocations and resentments to turn us against it." In New York, Secretary of Commerce Weeks said in a speech: "Despite what you read in the TRUCE SEVEN PIECE FiRE'KIHG STARTER SET Set Includes One-1 Qt. Casserole & Cover One-8" Pie Plote Four-6 oz.

ILYTHEVILLE AND DYERSBUR8 (Continued from Pate 1> in the two year old negotiations Government leaders have said the boycott would continue unless thi U. N. Command withdraws or changes Its proposal. Neither Harrison at Munsan nor Gen. Mark Clark's U. N. head quarters in Tokyo would commeni on the boycott threat. Unhapiilness Expressed American and foreign diplomats in Seoul and Tokyo expressed unhappiness with the South Korean move. They said the proposal had been cleared with major allie: Britain, Canada, France, The Netherlands, United States and other countries. President Eisenhower in Washington told a news conference Thursday the 0. S. never would accept any solution for the wni which its conscience tells it is unfair to South Korea. But, Eisenhower, added, he believes the U .S. will be in a better position to go ahead with what it considers just if an agreement is reached along' the lines offered at Panmunjom. The President said there is no wavering on the basic issue blocking an armistice. No Chinese North Koreans will be sent home against their will, he said. Choi-wrote Harrison he boycott-ec Monday's session because "My conscience did not allow me to change my position to go along with you." Choi listed as the "firsf major concession" In the new Allied plan the dropping of the May 13 Allied proposal to release 34,000 North Koreans in South Korea immediately after a truce. Under the new plan, these prisoners along with 14,500 Chinese prisoners would be turned over to the custody of a five-member neutral nations repatriation commission. As a "second concession" Choi cited the lengthening of the period of custody from 60 to 90 days, and the provisions calling for turning over the POW question to a political conference and the U. N. General Assembly. Still a "third concession" listed by Choi was a provision calling for a majority, rather than unanimous vote on the repatriation commission. The commission would be made up of Poland, Czechoslovakia, India, Sweden and Switzerland. Choi argued that three of the five nations "are on the Communist side . . . "It is very doubtful if the traditional neutral nations, Sweden and Switzerland, will volunteer to be the members of this commission under such circumstances." Choi said -"more than 150 Communist brainwashers will lawfully Invade Into Korea with their free movement guaranteed." This apparently was a reference to Communist representatives who ivould be allowed to talk to unwilling prisoners to give them "explanations", about returning home.

Ike Lunches With Advisers WASHINGTON W) — President •lisenhower invited his chief rcor- anization advisers to lunch at the White House today. Press Secretary James C. Hag- irty said the luncheon was arrang;- ;d to permit a discussion of government reorganization matters. Nine of 10 Americans worked at producing food in Revolutionary times; today only one in five works on farms or produces foods, papers, Bob Taft is giving the President of the United States great support. Despite some differences of opinion, we are molding the best team-play between the legislative and executive branches of the government that I have ever seen in Washington.' In Los Angeles, Sen. McCarrar (D-Nev) said in an interview he agreed with Taft. "If we had gone it alone at the outset, the war would be over by now and thousands of American boys killed in Korea would be alive today," McCarran said. "The United Nations angle of this controversy has been a retarding feature for U. S. arms. We have never lost before and there is no reason to lose now."

A unanimous vote of approval hy*~ ——. the Semite Armed Services Com mittee, after relatively brief hearings, yesterday sent the nomina- .ions to the Senate for indlcatec asy confirmation, probably Tuesday. Adm. Arthur W. Radtord, the first non-Army man selected chairman of the Joint Chiefs Staff, was hurrying back to the Pacific to wind up his duties as Navy commander in that theater "I was due in Formosa Monday 3ut I probably can't reach there until Tuesday," he said, adding that he visited Formosa every six nonths just to check affairs. The island is headquarters for Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist China forces Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, who will take over as Army Chief oi Staff, headed back for Europe even before the committee vote. As Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, Ridgway had appointments there and in Iceland before assuming his new post here, Adm. Robert B. Carney, named as Chief of Naval Operations, and Gen. Nathan P. Twining, who will be Air Force Chief of _ Stall also shared the unanimous 'committee approval. Won't Hurt Defense President Eisenhower told his news conference yesterday he can give personal assurance that proposed Air Force budget cuts will not reduce America's defenses beyond a margin of safety. But Twining, in his committee appearance, said he felt the sug- estcd reduction of five billion dollars would "delay the building of a' 143-wing Air Force." And 143 wings, Twining said, are essential -o the nation's security. A wing includes 30 to 75 airplanes, depending upon type, Forner President Truman's budget :alled for about IB 1 /-; billion dollars 'or the year starting July 1 and 143 vings by mid-1055. Eisenhower's; t trimmed these to about ll 1 ^ billions and 120 wings. Sen. Byrd (D-Va), one of the awmakers who backed the new Joint Chiefs, said the air power sue is far from settled. Pointed questions by Senators Margaret Chase Smith (E-Me), Russell (D-Ga), Stonnis (D-Miss), Hunt (D-Wyo), Symington (D-Mo) and others at yesterday's hearings made this clear. Radford assured several of the lawmakers that he has modified his former opposition to long-range strategic, bombing; missions and to unification of the armed forces. Each of the future military chiefs in turn assured questioners he would' speak np—even if it meant carrying a fight to the President—if he thought defense budgets inadequate or dangerous.
