TUESDAY, JUNE 9, 1D53 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NTN1 ROK Congress Stands Ready Scores Truce, Votes Preparedness Measures PDSAN. Korea (JP> — The South Korean National Assembly called today Jor "all necessary measures' at the front lines "to prevent another Communist aggression and be prepared for a northward advance.' The Assembly also'voted unanimously—129 to 0—to reject any arm- iscice unless it provides Jor the withdrawal of Chinese Communist ,{' forces and dissolution of the North Korean Army. Shout Approval The lawmakers shouted their ap proval of a. four-point resolution reaffirming South Korea's opposition to an Impending truce and threatening to fight on alone. "In order to prevent another Communist aggression and be prepared for a northward advance, all necessary measures must be taken quickly at the front lines as well as in the rear area," the resolution said. This was not further explained immediately, but observers said the Assembly apparently was recommending that the South Korean Army prepare to fight on. Tha first point of the resolution read: "No cease-fire agreement will be accepted unless and until the ROK five-point principles on a truce and President Syngman Rhee's three- point proposal to President Eisenhower are adopted." The five-point principals call for North Korean Army to be dissolved and Chinese evacuation of all Korea. Rhee's three-point proposal called for a mutual assistance pact with the U.

STOP AND CO NOT NEW TO THESE "DRIVERS"—In spite of difficulties remembering whether red or green lights mean to stop or go, these young drivers are reported doing well in their "driving lessons" at Jacksonville, Fla. Sgt. O. P. McCulIy instructs children of kindergarten age in a drive to teach safety. The light is an exact replica of Jacksonville's traffic lights.

Talk Costly In Parliament ROME' W>—Talk costs about 20 cents a word in Italy's long-winded, name-calling Parliament. That's based on the official statistical records of the Chamber of Deputies itself, for the past five years. The figures are taken from the number of words deputies have used In five years and the operating costs of the Chamber. .Many deputies wonder whether most of the words have been worth the 20 cents. They have included some dandies, however, in this Chamber where ir.snlts are common. Still based on the Chamber's o\vn statistics, the most frequently hurled insults have been—in this order —''fascist," "shameless liar," 'shut up, you rascal." "scoundrel," and "coward". Crowding close after these, in number of times used, have been "slave of the Americans", and "shame on you." Man Has Weighty Argument Here MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (ff)—J. Jack Stoerh weighs 340 pounds. The airlines would like him to buy two seats. Stoerh, who is the Eastern Regional Director of the Loyal Order of Moose has to travel a good deal. He has been waging war for some years, against airlines. He bea t down TWA by asking Ralph Damon, the president, why he should be penalized because of his weight. Another airline capitu- Container Protest- Asked by Solon HASTINGS, Neb. f/P>—The Hastings City Council has adopted a resolution asking that Nebraska en- net a law ^prohibiting the sule of beverages in "throw-away" containers. Such a law presumably would outlaw such things as paper milk cartons and beer cans. Councilman Louis Benner said the law Is neetled to clean up streets and yards now littered by beverage cans and bottles. A copy of the resolution was forwarded to Gov. Robert Crosby. lated to Stoerh's argument. Eastern Airlines was a holdout. But on his last trip — from Pittsburg to Miami he \Vas allowed to buy a family excursion ticket. Stoerh proffered the stewardess a fare and n half for his ticket, and not knowing what to do with it, the stewardess only picked up one fare. Jnck was chuckling with high glee when he told about It.
