Seoul Hit By Large Red Raid Syngman Rhee Residence Nearly Bombed By WILLIAM C. BARNARD SEOUL (AP) — Nine Communist planes bombed Seoul tonight in the biggest Red raid of the war, narrowly missing President Syngman Rhee's residence, killing two persons and injuring eight others. One of the eight injured was an American, Michael Rougier, Life photographer, who was cut by Hying glass when one of four 250- pound bombs that hit the capital struck near the Eighth Army press Billets. Other bombs hit an air field near Seoul. The raiders swept in low and laid their first bomb 1,000 feet from Rhee's residence while the capitas lights still blazed. Rhee was unhurt and unruffled. The city was then blacked out, anti-aircraft, guns opened up, but the Fifth. Air Force said no planes were shot down. Radar picked up the planes bar- reling in from the northwest, but they were over the city before it could be blacked out. Lights Out The first bomb hit near Rhee's j residence as the city's lights still blazed. Then the lights went out, searchlights were turned on, and anti-aircraft guns opened up. Rhee, key figure in the bitter anti-armistice resistance that is rocking South Korea, was reading when the first bomb went off. His secretary said he was calm, put down his papers and waited until he police reported to him a few moments "later. It was possible, of course, the Reds aimed the raid at his residence. Their planes rarely nave appeared over Seoul, and no more than two or three at a time. The second bomb barely rmss-xi a crow.: of coirespor.dents. ^n^ con'esponden*,s had rushed fr j.-n their billeU ?rd were racing it ward Rhee's home to investigate the first blast, unaware that an air raid was on. AP Correspondent Forrest Edwards, who was riding in an open jeep toward Rhee's compound with AP Photographers George Sweers and Fred Waters, said he heard a single-engine plane Hying low. "The blackout was on then, and we could see nothing, but it was remarkably low and I could hear it loud and clear," he said. "A few moments later we heard the blast from the billets." The bomb near the billet burned for more than ten minutes .with a bright glare, indicating it was incendiary- It was much heavier than the mortar shells and light bombs dropped on Seoul previously by "Washing Machine Charlie," a light propeller plane which has been doing niost of the hit-run night raiding on Seoul. + Wilson told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee headed by Sen. Ferguson (R-Mich): "I assure you most emphatically that \ve are not going to have tne second-best air force, We are going to continue to have the best air force." Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg, outgoing Air Force chief of staff, spent three days before Ferguson's subcommittee last week assailing a five billion dollar cut the Eisenhower administration has made in the Air Force budget recommended last January by former President Truman. Vandenberg indicated it would produce only a "second-best" air force. Wilson testified at a televised public hearing. Not First He told the senators he was not the first Secretary of Defense "that has had to hold down the extravagant expenditures proposed by a military department." Wilson said there, has been ' 'waste and inefficiency'' in the armed services and promised to cut this to a minimum. The Truman Air Force budget called for new appropriations of 16 billion dollars and a December, 1955. target of 143 wings—30 to 75 planes per wing. The new budget reduced the appropriation request by five billions and set a December, 1955. tar^-t, of 120 wings, with from 110 to lU "combat ready" wings by.

HEAVYWEIGHT HAILSTONES — Hailstones the size' of baseballs pummeled the Huffman area yesterday during the height of a thunderstorm that passed over this area. These stones, four of which filled an ice cube tray, were picked up by Stanton Pepper, Huffman planter, and preserved in his refrigerator. No damage was reported.

TUCKMAN PANMUNJOM (AP) — The last big stumbling block to a Korean truce was swept aside today with the signing of a prisoner exchange agreement, but South Korean opposition shot toward the boiling point as their leaders vowed to continue fighting. Agreement on a full armistice in the three-year-old war could come tomorrow when Allied and Communist negotiators meet at 11 a.m. However, South Korean President Syngman Rhee told the Associated Press, "The. Korean people will pay no attention" to the impending armistice. Rhee told AP photographer Fred , rea 120 days after a cease-fire. The agreement—signed in accord with the Allied principle of voluntary repatriation—reads that "no force or threat of force shall be Waters: "Our boys are fighting the Communists nt the front, and now they want to open the back door and let the Communists in that way." The South Korean Cabinet and National Assembly crisis committee resolved to disregard any truce under present terms ana keep fighting. Anti - Armistice demonstrations, parades and mass meetings throughout South Korea were scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday, a government spokesman said. • The prisoner agreement provides that of the 138,000 Allied and Red captives, those wanting to return home will be exchanged within 60 days after a truce is signed. Communist prisoners who steadfastly refuse repatriation will be released as civilians in South Ko* * * used against" the prisoners—either Allied or Communist-held. A total of 14.200 Chinese and 32,180 North Koreans in U.N. prison camps have indicated they will re- iuse repatriation. The figure was revised downward from a 48,500 total. A last - minute message from President Eisenhower to Rhee said he felt the U.N. and South Korea were "required" to accept the present terms and warned Rhee against any "reckless adventure" by South Korea's armed might. However, South Korean officials reacted with sharp resentment. "There will change in our be absolutely no policy," one high government source declared. The prisoner agreement was signed without ceremony In the tiny truce hut by the chief delegates—the U.N. Command's Lt. Gen. William K. Harrison Jr. and Communist Gen. Nam II. It came suddenly at 2 p.m. (midnight Sunday (EOT). The news spread swiftly to Allied troops In the trenches and foxholes along the 155-mile front. Their immediate reaction: "When do we go home?" U.N. troops won't be leaving Korea, however, until peace comes to this land—months, maybe years away. Only minor administrative matters now stand in the way of an armistice and there was little doubt at Panmunjom that an historic truce would be reached shortly. However, that's only a cease-fire prelude to peace—negotiations for which may take many months, or years. Under the agreement, a neutral nations commission of India, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland would take custody of the 46,380 captives in Allied hands who refuse to return to their Communist homelands. Bed agents will be permitted to "make explanations" to those prisoners about returning home.

Under these circumstances there is a strong possibility of spontaneous demonstrations and popular campaigns against the United Nations' move."

He said banners and placards are being prepared. Meanwhile a government spokesman said:: "There will be absolutely no change In our policy of opposition to the armistice.

No photographers were believed. present. Other Factors Lt. Col. Milton Herr, U.N. official spokesman, stepped from the conference hut and told reporters: "The United Nations Command has reached an agreement with the Communists on the prisoner of war issue and terms', of reference have been signed by both Bides here in Fanmunjom this afternoon. . . . "Please remember this is not the armistice agreement. It deals with the prisoners of war issue, only. "There still are some administrative matters to be negotiated." Asked about the administrative matters, Herr said: "Things have changed since the original agreement—such things as the line of demarcation would be one of those matters." He said he did not know how many administrative matters remain. The prisoner agreement was hammered out in five secret meetings since May 25, when the U.N. Command presented the Reds with a "now or never" compromise proposal. The South Korean delegate on the U.N. truce team, MaJ. Gen.

The first reaction of all soldiers Interviewed was: ''How soon can I go home?" The answer was disappointing for all: "Not until after a peace settlement, which may be months —could be years—away." Pfc. Roger F. Bennett of Toledo, O., said, "It seems too good to be true that the last issue has been settled. I'm glad for all of us. especially the guys who have been over here a long, long time."
