TAXES (Continued from Page 1) housing boom went right along, rlthough at a slightly lower pace than in 1050. Marks Will Remain The nation is now starting the throes of an effort to control inflation. This has meant rising interest rates, rising yields on bonds and mortgages, and falling prices on government and corporate bonds. It has meant tightening money supply, and squawks from businessmen and farmers who find it hard to borrow money—and much more expensive, too. Many of fchese marks of the Korean War will last. Not because it was such a big war, but because it set off a big defense program, which will continue even if stretched out at a lower level. Americans will be glad to have the shooting stop. But most will keep a watchful eye cocked for the next place where the shooting could start up again—and probably go right on living for some time to come in the costly atmosphere of a cold war to which they are becoming habituated.

BlliikiiiB back tears, he told the hundreds of soldiers: "I come here with a sad feeling and a heavy heart. I do hope we will be allowed to finish this thing with justice and honor." As Rhee spoke, administration sources asnin threatened "physical action" against any truce not approved by the government. They said the ROK Army would either ) continue fighting at the front or would lake part in "small-scale skirmishes" against Indian troops who land to take charge of Red prisoners refusing to go home and Rites Tomorrow For Andrew Cook Services for Andrew May Cook, 68, of Dell, will be conducted tomorrow at 10 a.m. at the Dell Baptist Church by the Rev.

They said such landings would be an invasion of their nation's rights unless approved by the government. They said government officials have decided to continue fighting until the U. s. actually signs a mutual defense pact, but Eisenhower's letter said clearly such a pact would come after an armistice was signed. Citizens Antfry The sources also said they expected the reluctant prisoners as well as South Korean civilians to stage "all-out" demonstrations. Speakers waving anti-armistice banners were already talking angrily on dozens of street corners in Seoul. Eisenhower's letter to Rhee pledged a constant effort to unify Ihis divided country "by all peaceful means" after an armistice. The letter, dated June 6, stressed :hat the economic aid, mutual defense pact and other Allied offer: Services for Mrs. Guy Chism, 62. formerly of Blytheville and sister of Mrs. Ira Lambert, W. B. McMullin and James McMuUin, all of Blytheville, were to be conducted in Parkin at 2 p.m. today. Other survivors include her husband, Guy Chism; four daughters, | Mrs. Rudolph Weeks of Parkin, Mrs. !

It was delivered to Rhee by Gen Mark Clark, U.N. Par East Commander, who flew from Tokyo in lhe teeth of an approaching ty- . . ____ adventures" and forget its oft- Phoon. Rhee released the text with- voiced threats to carry on the war alone. Washington sources said Eisenhower's offer does not by any means meet Rhee's recent demands for withdrawal of all foreign troops, steps toward unification of Korea, and a military security pact before an armistice. They said the proposed pact is not a blank check to get South Korea out of trouble in case it tries to unify the country by force. Rhee revealed his indecision about the Eisenhower terms after a speech at the U. S. 1st Corps. "I have not decided yet," ne told correspondents. Referring to his speech, he added, "I think I have said enough." He would not say whether Korea would fight on if an armistice is signed. "We Can't Surrender In his speech, the fiery, 18-year- old Chief Executive said; "We cannot surrender to the Communists after all the sacrifices you have made and we have made As far as we are concerned, no out comment. Clark flew back to Tokj'o after the meeting. Eisenhower snirl the mutual defense pact would be similar to those the U. S. has negotiated with The Philippines and with Australia and New Zealand—a further step toward "a more comprehensive system of regional security in the Pacific area." Eisenhower noted that the treaty Would require advice and consent of the D. S. Senate, but added that action already taken by the U. S. makes clear "American temper and intention not to tolerate a repetition of unprovoked aggression." He told Rhee the U.S. would work toward unification of Korea in the political conference following a truce and in the United Nations, but he pointed out: "We do not intertd to employ war as an instrument to accomplish the world-wide political settlement to which we are dedicated and which we believe to be just. It was indeed crime that those who attacked from the North invoked violence to peace or no armistice can be ac- 1 unite Korea under their rule. Not only as your official friend, but as a personel friend, I urge that your country not embark on a similar course." "The enemy has proposed an armistice which involves a clear abandonment of the fruits of ag gression. The armistice woulc leave the Republic of Korea in undisputed possession of substantially the territory which the republic administered prior to the aggression, indeed this territory will be somewhat enlarged. "The proposed armistice, true to the principle of political asylum assures that thousands of North Koreans and Communist Chinese prisoners (who don't want to go home) . . . wlU not be forcibly sent back into Communist areas . . "It is my profound conviction that under these circumstances acceptance of the armistice is required of the United Nations anc the Republic of Korea. We would not be justified in prolonging the war . . . in the hope of achieving, by force, the unification of Korea." Rhee's government ordered return of the entire South Korean officers corps now training in the U S., Including Gen. Paik Sun Yup chief of staff, and canceled scheduled departure of any others for the U. S. The Kids Will Love "Frosty" cutting field drains Caterpillar Diesel No 12 Motor Grader R. A.
