PAGE SIXTEEN (AKK.J UJUKUiK WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10, 195S Truce Work Moves Swiftly By ROBERT B. TUCKMAN PANMUNJOM (AP) — United Nations and Communist truce negotiators — their work apparently all but finished — today handed staff officers, the job of putting a Korean armistice into final form, then recessed indefinitely. final agreement on the truce would All signs still pointed to a cease- lire within the week, but these developments clouded the picture: 1. Switzerland announced it would not serve on the five-nation prisoner repatriation commission unless South Korea approves the truce. 2. South Korean leaders reiterated bitter opposition and anti-armistice demonstrations raged in Seoul for the second straight day. 3. A spokesman for Syngman Rhee dashed reports that the South Korean President will fly to Washington to make ft personal appeal against the truce. Rhee, he said, will not leave Korea "at this time of grave situations." Details of what went on at to day's plenary session at Panmun- jim were not disclosed, but the delegates presumably completec teir work. Recess After 23 minutes, they recessed at Communist request subject to call by either side. Lower level officers then assembled in the tiny truce hut and reportedly went to work on a review of the cease-fire line that wi separate Allied and Red forces during a truce. They met for an hour and 36 minutes, then adjourned until Thursday. Meanwhile, thousands of Korean youths snaked through Seoul streets in apparently well-organized demonstrations. Shouting "Yankee go home!" they marched on U. N. and TJ. S. buildings, but were held back by military police. Worried About g-wiM . In Washington, the Swiss move worried officials. The State Department reportedly made Jt plain to the Swiss legation that it hoped Switzerland would reconsider. U. S. authorities feared that unless Switzerland changes its mind, be delayed. The other four nations named to take custody of the prisoners—India, Sweden, Poland and Czechoslovakia—were expected to r/--;'ve. Sweden announced Tuesday it would. Despite South Korea's violent on- position to any truce that leaves the devastated country diviciea, American officials reportedly were still hopeful the defiant Rhee would be persuaded to go alons with nn armistice and not carry out its threat to keep on fighting.

Former State Speech Correctionist Teaches Girl to Talk with Stomach Eisenhower CaHs for Unity Miss Cynthia Daly, a Tucson, Ariz., speech instructor and formerly a frequent Blytheville visitor when employed by the Arkansas Department of Education, has gained prominent recognition for her efforts in teaching an Arizona child ;o talk with her stomach. A speech therapist when with the Arkansas education office, Miss Day taught an eight-year-old Arizona girl to talk through esophageal speech—with air from her stomach and food pipe—when the girl's larynx was removed due to a dangerous tumor growth. Miss Daly taught the child belch by swallowing air and emitting it in such a way to produce speech sounds. When the story of the successful experiment was presented before the Arizona Medical Society recently, Miss Daly told the association that in three or four years,, she expects to bring the girl beyond her present utterances and into the world of everyday speech.
