The South Korean executive called it a counter-proposal to an expected truce agreement "unacceptable" to his government. Rhee said if his proposal Is not accepted "We must be allowed to continue to fight." The South Korean counter-proposal calls for withdrawal of both Communist and Allied 'roops from Korea with the understanding that U. S. aid will be nstantaneous" in event of any attack upon Korea. It also asked the U. S. to main;ain iU present air and naval 'orces in Korea and to supply arms, ammunition and logistical support to South Korea's armed orces.

"We will stick to it," said the spokesman, Dr. Karl Hong Ki, di- utomatic and i rector of Rhee's office of public information in Seoul. Two days ago, however, Rhee said in on emotional declaration that South Korea would accept the expected Allied-Communist truce agreement, although it would be South Korea's "death warrant." But Rhee's ambassador in Washington and Karl insisted today South Korea will oppose the Allied truce offer. South Korea opposes any truce agreement that does not provide for unification of the nation. It alsi objects strenuously to turning over to a neutral commission 34,000 North Korean prisoners of war who refuse to return home. Rhee wants the prisoners freed In South Korea when an armistice is signed. The Korean Embassy in Washington issued a statement Friday night outlinin g Rhee's proposal and said it supersedes the 78-year- old leader's earlier statement. You Chan Yang, Korean ambassador to the U. S., said: "If the D. S. does not accept the counter-proposals we won't sign the truce. Actually only Gen. Mark Clark, as U. N. commander, needs to sign the truce for the Allied side to make it official. "The U. S. has been forcing our government to accept this (truce)", You Chan Yang said. "Knowing that the U.

Radford to Tour Korea and Japan TOKYO (ffl—Adm. Arthur Radford, newly-named chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, arrived in Tokyo today for a one-week inspection of military installations in Japan and Korea. He came from Formosa by plane. Radford told newsmen as he landed, "I hope to go to Panmunjom If I can get up there," Coe, pleading at yesterday's stormy hearing that replies might tend to incriminate him, refused to answer 51 questions as to whether he had been a Communist or a spy, or had connections with Communists. But he said he was a good American and no espionage agent. He refused to say whether he knew Taylor or was a fellow member of a spy ring with him. McCarthy called Coe "an extremely dangerous individual," and said the government ought to close the U. S. borders to him. The tall, fidgeting witness flung back that this was "persecution."

This system, to be controlled from the Frisco's River Division headquarters at Chaffee, Mo., will provide control form of of trains 000. Most of the Injured were in nearby small cottages and apartment houses. Only two men were in the fireworks warehouse and both escaped with minor injuries, running outside as soon as a spark touched off a blaze that resulted in the explosion. The explosion smashed nearly everything in the block surrounding the Alco Fireworks and Specialty Company warehouse. At least a dozen homes blazed. Other homes gaped openly, their windows shattered, roofs, stripped and sides sheared away. The dead were identified as Mrs. Jean Walton, 25, and her two children, Cathy. 4, and John Jr., 2. formerly of Hot Springs, Ark., and Mrs. Jessie Jane Barziza, 22. Investigation Ordered Mayor Roy Hofheinz ordered an investigation into why the explosives were stored inside the city limits. City Attorney Will Sear's said it's against the law without a permit. He quoted Fire Marshal P. W. Ciooney as saying the Alco firm had a permit for a small warehouse but not for the big one which blew up. The small warehouse, stacked to the rafters xvith fireworks, was damaged only slightly. It was across the street from the larger building. The cause apparently can be traced to a hammer being used by Kenneth B. Williams, 35, Alco's general manager. He had minor points, including those which pass through Blytheville. Frisco officials here explained that the centralized system will control light signals at passing points. Some operators and individual train orders will be eliminated by this system. Some of the passing points will be push button" | injuries. He was driving nails into between these! lhe framework of fl.p.ressed-paper display containing explosives.

TUCKMAN PANMUNJOM, (AP)—Allied and Communist negotiators met in tight secrecy for 19 minutes today as mushrooming reports of near agreement on the key issue of prisoner exchange bolstered hopes for an armistice in Korea. There was no official hint of what went on inside the conference hut, but an authoritative South Korean source said "No new proposal was made by either side." The Reds asked for and got a •ecess until 11 a. m. tomorrow (9 J. m. EST Saturday). The South Korean source Indicated—without elaboration—that progress might be made then. He described the atmosphere Inside the conference hut today as jusinesslike—"neither good nor bad." Other observers said the V. N. Command probably asked for clar- fication of an hour-long statement •ead Thursday by North Korean ien. Nam II. This was reported to have been counter-proposal virtually para- ihrasing the latest U. N. plan for breaking the long prisoners exchange deadlock, last major bar- •ier to a Korean truce. The Reds were said to have suggested fiv« changes, none of them major. An informed source close to th« negotiations said there was a pos- sibilty the- Communists would agree to refer final disposition of prisoners who refuse to go home the U. N. General Assembly. The' ds reportedly had objected to this provision of the May 25 U. N. proposal. The same source said there were ndlcations the "minor points" of difference would be ironed out Sun- lay or within a "matter of ciays." In Western and Communist cap- Hals around the world hopes mounted that the end of the bloody Korean War was in sight—perhaps before the conflict winds up its third year on June 25. Even In Moscow There was optimism even in Moscow where the official government newspaper Izvestia said It "is clear that the sides participating in the talks are extremely close- to signing an agreement . . ." Only in South Korea was there deep gloom.
