BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOL. XLIX—NO. 79 Blythevllls Courier Blythevllle Daily News Mississippi Valley Leader Blythevllle Herald DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OP NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AMD BOBTHBAST MISSOURI BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, JUNE 22, 1953 TWELVE PAGES SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS Red Uranium Mines Are Hit BERLIN (AP) — Communist East Germany admitted today sabotage had occurred in the Soviet-managed uranium mines and violence continued elsewhere against the Red puppet regime. -- • - • *> The Communist Party leadership hurled new face - saving charges that Western agents had parachuted into East Germany to spread havoc after the workers' revolt flared last Wednesday. U. S, officials derided the accusations Ike Must t\n Mil Foreign Aid Could Use Pressure for EDC Approval By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — •tsident Eisenhower probably will have to decide this week whether he Wants to put heavy financial pressure on America's 'allies to speed agreement on a West European army. The House last week voted to withhold by law about a billion dol-, lars in foreign aid funds until Euro-' pean Defense Community treaties are ratified. Yesterday. Sen. Taft <R-Ohio) suggested a compromise which would give the President discretionary authority to do the same thing. Legislative leaders may find out «t a \Vhlte House conference Wednesday whether the President believes such a financial threat to West European nations would be wise. The EDC treaties, ratified so far only by Western Germany, would call up 500.000 men from six nations for service in a unified army. Livingston T. Merchant, assistant secretary of state, told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee In testimony on the foreign aid bill he believes "the logic of events" I will bring ratification of the EDC treaties also by Prance, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg. Testimony Made Public Merchant said: "We must not, in my judgment, become impatient and make the passage of EDC and ratlficr.'ion by a certain date a condition pre- cendent for aid ..." The testimony of Merchant and other officials, taken behind closed doors by the committee, was made public over the week end. In it Gen. Omar N. Bradley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was disclosed to have told senators he believes Russia is "pulling back" in the cold War. Bradley said the Soviets fear increased U. S. military strength and need time to consolidate their position at home. Bradley said the U. S. already is stockpiling equipment and supplies in West Germany for the arming of German divisions if they are ever created. ' The hearing transcript included Taft's statement that it is "ridiculous" to claim the U. S. is saving money by financing the manufacture of fighter planes in Britain and France. Scores Funds Use The Senate Republican leader said funds those countries receive under the offshore-purchase program represent economic aid which he asserted will be used "for socialistic purposes in England and for something else in Prance." In the fiscal year ending June 30, such contracts reported let total 272 million dollars worth of equipment in Britain, and 263 million in France. Meanwhile the state Department was reported planning to offer separate arms aid agreements to the Arab nations as a stopgap to obtaining ultimately a formal Middle East defense alliance. Funds for such separate agreements would come from 100 million dollars requested by Eisenhower for Middle East military aid. However, should Congress decline to appropriate the money, administration plans are to transfer some uncommitted foreign aid funds to the project. ADN, the Soviet-controlled German news agency, confirmed reports that the anti-Red mutiny had struck in the Saxony uranium fields which have been exploited by the Russians since 1947 in the atomic weapons race. ADN quoted statements of loyalty by uranium miners saying they would expand their efforts to make up for lost production "and to reconstruct the areas destroyed by the Fascist provocateurs." No Estimates Given No estimate of damage was given. A West Berlin newspaper, Telegraf, reported yesterday that 100,000 Germans went on strike Thursday in the Saxony uranium mines after a Soviet firing squad executed 12 anti-Red demonstrators. The strikers represented more than a one-third of the men in the mines. ADN said Aue, heart of the low grade uranium ore fields, was hard hit. Accusations that American and West German money and effort supplied paratroop saboteurs to keep the flames of revolt alive were contained in a Socialist Unity (Communist) Party declaration which pleaded with Bast Germans to get back to work and support the Red government. The party declaration said a "great number" of the parachutists had been captured but admitted that in the sixth day of Soviet martial law "quiet is not yet entirely secured." U. S. officials in Berlin, in denying the paratroop accusation, said: "The idea of parachuting underground saboteurs into the Soviet zone is ridiculous. They'd better realize as long as this Communist gang is in power there are already 18 million there." 85 New Casualties WASHINGTON Wl — The Defense Department today identified ' 85 Korean War casualties in a new list No. 839 that reported 15 killed. 63 wounded, 2 missing, 1 captured and 4 Injured.

Mr. Farmer also will meet with the full committee in the afternoon session. This meeting will largely determine what will be discussed at the afternoon session, Mr. Morris said. The BlythevUle Stewer Committee was organized at a meeting June 30 to seek ways of ending the stalemate that has prevented any progress in obtaining a badly-needed new sewer system.

The former President, resting up from a three-day, nearly 1,200-mile automobile trip from his home in Independence, Mo., avoided any direct reference to the Eisenhower administration in an interview with I'll be pretty well informed be reporters, however. But, he told them a man who has been in political life for 40 years senhower administration is functioning, he replied with a grin: "I'm not in a position to make a statement.

"1 am authorized at the present time to sign tht armistice which has been drawn, up," he told newsmen after what was apparently a showdown meeting with the rebellious Rhee. Churchill Lashes Out at ROK's Rhee LONDON (AP) — Prime Minister Churchill told a cheering House of Commons today, "We have not committed ourseives in any way to yo forward and conquer the whole area of Korea and place it under the authority of Mi*. Syng- man Rhee." At the same time, the prime •(• minister disclosed Britain had sent stiif note to Rhee denouncing his "treacherous action.' ' Churchill said the South Korean president's release of thousands of anti-Communist prisoners oi war had created a situation "lull of danger." Churchill told the House "the matter is obviously very serious. We can all see the casting away of the fruits of these years of fighting." Moved Troops He said the U. S. Vmci a "very heavy burden to bear" in the ruardms of the prisoners, explaining that the U. S. has moved "about 30,000 troops from guarding prisoners to the holding of the front." The British protest note to Rhee, delivered by the British minister in South Korea today, told him: As a member of the U. N. whose military forces are participating in the Korea action her majesty's govern ment strongly condemn this treacherous violation of the authority ot the U. N. command to which the government of Korea had agreed in 1950. Violated Pact Moreover, her majesty's government understand that during recent weeks the government of the Republic of Korea have actually "eaffirmed tliis position by assurances to the. U. N. Command that unilateral action of this kind vould be taken by them." "Unless tht^re is a government in the Republic of Korea which will :ooperato loyally with the Unit,ed Nations command, the .security aud welfare of its peoplr, as well as all .he gains which have been made by the sacrifice of so many, including the gallant Republic of Korea army, will be jeopardized." Churchill told the House the U. . Command was nmv "confronu-d ft'ith grave and serious problems." The prime minister declared 'nothing could lj'> 1'urllu'r from tile ruth than to allccn, as ha.s been lone, by the Communists that HIP j U.N. Command connived at these "lappf'nings."

GREEN WASHINGTON Wi—The Office of Defense Mobilization plans to stockpile executive talent, as well as war materials, for any future war emergency. Director Arthur s. Flemming, it was learned today, expects to obtain, from key officials he is "borrowing" temporarily from industry, promises that they will come back to Washington when and if the nation mobilizes. Flemming hopes to obtain from the men and their companies assurances that: 1. Having served six months or a year in ODM, they will return to Washington periodically for brief "refresher" tours of duty, perhaps as consultants on special defense probems. 2. They will ke,ep up to date the information in their personal loyalty-security files here. Time Savpr The latter assurance is not being requested because of any fear that the industry talent will suddenly turn subversive. It is a matter of saving time if the experts are recalled in a crisis. Officials have learned by experience that, in emergency periods, the Federal Bureau of Investigation can fall 60 to '90 [lays behind in its task of completing security checks on the flood of new appointees.

I feel somewhat more encouraged; more hopeful," he add Clark said he could not reveal why he was encouraged. What effect the talk might hava on an armistice was not apparent. Although Clark Indicated the truce document was virtually complete, he said there still are problems and added, "The truce timetable is more or less up to the Communists." He said a truce could be completed promptly "if the Reds desire it.' ' Clark's comments indicated the free-swinging South Korean government would check with the U. N. Command before taking any more such lone actions as its single-handed release of 27,000 anti- Red Korean prisoners sines Wednesday night. No Remorse Rhee's action froze the armistice talks on the edge of signing and left the UNC a plump target for the Reds, who demanded recapture of the prisoners and U. N. control of South Korea if the Allies wanted an armistice. South Korea showed no remorse or inclination to change its stand against any truce which would leave Korea divided despite a burning Allied anger. Its Prime Minister insisted just before the Clark- Rhee meeting that South gave the Allies command Korea of its mistice had been signed only 8,000 o 9,000 "remain in the camps, which are new under U.

However, Clark made it clear that he feels he is boss of all U. N. forces—including the 16 ROK divisions. He said there Is no question that the ROK Army la "under my command." Asked if he thinks the ROK troops loyal, clark replied with an emphatic "Yes." He was asked if he would sign an armistice without advance approval by Rhee. He told newsmen the armistice is between the U.N. commander and the Red Chinese- North Korean command, and said: "I am authorized at the present time . to sign the armistice which has been drawn up." Asked if Rhee would accept an armistice that doesn't unify North, and South Korea, Clark smiled and answered: "I hope so." The U.N. commander said Hypothetically ...

"Hope So" Asked if such a truce would b« • useless, he answered: "It would depend on the. amount of co-operation 'by South Korea)."
