MONDAY, JUNE 22, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THRB1 Tearful Praise iij For Spies Angry Attacks On U. S. At Final Rites NEW YORK (AP) — Funeral services for Julius and ^Cthel Rosenberg erupted yesterday into tearful praise of the electrocuted atom spies and angry attacks on U. S. government officials. Defense Atty. Emanuel Bloch declared in a funeral oration that the executions were "an act of cold, deliberate murder." He said he placed "the murder of the Rosenbergs at the door of President Eisenhower, Atty. Gen. Browne!! and J. Edgar Hoover." Bloch praised the New York City couple—who died Friday night in the electric chair at Sing Sing Prison—for what he called their "courage and heroism." Semi - orthodox Jewish services p were held for the Rosenbergs at a Brooklyn funeral home chapel, largest in the Brooklyn-Manhattan area. About 500 mourners jammed the chapel, and a crowd estimated by police at 10,000 milled around outside in 93-degree heat. Hisses The chapel filled, with hisses and ^murmurs of "No" when Rabbi Abraham Cronbach said, "Let us give them (the prosecutors )credit for this: that they did what they thought was right." Cronbach, professor emeritus of the Hebrew Union College of Cincinnati, presided over the service. He was one of a delegation of four clergymen who urged President Eisenhower last week to commute the Rosenbergs' sentences to life imprisonment. The rabbi told his protesting au- dienqe not to be vindictive, even though the executions "broke our hearts." He continued'. "We must demonstrate that we are among those most loyal to America. We must not permit any ground for accusations of remission in our American citizenship. We gain when America gains and •we lose when America loses." In his attack on government leaders, Bloch declared: "The people should know that America is living under the heel of ; a military dictator garbed in civilian attire. These people . . . have the souls of murderers. Two-Year Fight Bloch was attorney for the Rosenbergs at the trial in which they were convicted of conspiring to pass U. S. atomic secrets to Soviet Russia. For more than two years he led the court fight to have their death sentence set aside. A precession of more than 300 automobiles followed the hearses to Wellwood Cemetery on Long Island 35 miles from New York. At the graveside the Rev. Glendin Partridge, a Presbyterian minister from Montreal, Canada, delivered the final eulogy. He praised the "true strength of these people who would not put anything—even life itself — above the best they believed in." "They died in the name of humanity, truth and Justice," he said. Mrs. Sophie Roesnberg, 71-year- old mother of Julius, a black shawl tied around her head and under her chin, wailed in Yiddish: "God help me. To lose two child- TRUCE (Continued from Pag* 1) Pyun Yung Tai, told reporters his country had given his troops to the U.N. Command and could take them back if it desired. Pyun said there would be no further mass releases of anti-Corn, munist North Korean prisoners if the Allied command guaranteed that no Indian troops or Communist "brain washers" would enter South Korea. Under terms of the armistice that awaits signing at Panmunjom Indian troops would guard anti- Communist prisoners while in cus- today of a five-nation repatriation commission and Communist representatives would be permitted to give "explanations" about return to North Korea or Red China. New Breakouts New, but small and scattered breakouts of anti-Communist Korean prisoners were reported from several U.N. camps. They brought to 27,160 the number of escapees. Nearly 100 antiCommunist Chinese prisoners escaped Monday from a special interrogation compound at Pusan, but were quickly rounded up by South Korean police. They were the first Chinese to oreak out and wore easily spotted in their prisoner uniforms and because they spoke no Korean. Rhee will have an important visitor shortly—Assistant Secretary of State Walter Robertson, who was scheduled to leave Washington today by plane. It was presumed Secretary of State Dulles was sending a special message to Rhee that the U. S. is going ahead with truce arrangements on terms already ivorked out with the Reds. And in Washington, it was reported that Switzerland, India and Sweden have assured the VO. S. they are willing to serve on the repatriation commission. Poland Czechoslovakia are the other .wo prospective members.

Besides his mother, Julius Rosen)erg's two sisters and a brother vere among the mourners. Members of the committee that arranged the funeral said they did not know whether members of thel Rosenberg's family attended. One of tile witnesses against the Rosenbergs at their trial was her brother, David Greenglass. The Rosenbergs' bodies were brought^ from Sing Sing to Brooklyn Saturday afternoon. They were placed on view and throughout that night and Sunday until 1 p.m. the mourning and curious filed past. Four men, holding American flags stood by the flower-banked biers. The bodies were clothed in white muslin shrouds. The husband also wore a prayer shawl and cap. A piece of white lace covered Mrs. Rosenberg's hair. At times the line of those waiting to get into the chapel stretched four and five abreast for four blocks. The funeral committee estimated 10,000 trooped past the bodies before the funeral. Nearly 200 policemen were on duty to keep order and prevent disturbances. Occasionally spectators heckled those in line.
