MONDAY; JUNK 23, loss BLYTIJEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Postpone New Aid Cuts: Taft Study Asks Committee Before Taking Action By JACK BELL WASHINGTON ( A P ) — Sen. Taft (R-Ohio) today urged that the Senate postpone any further cuts in the administration's $5, 318, 000,000 foreign aid program until later action by its appropriations committee. In 'advance of the opening of debate on the program today, the Ohioan said in an interview he feels the, place to make any fight for fund reductions will come when the Senate considers a bill for actually providing the money which would be authorized in the pending measure. The Senate foreign relations committee approved the authorization bill, which would set a ceiling on the amount of military and technical assistance to be siven U. S. allies. Taft said he believes the appropriations committee headed by Sen. Bridges (R-NH1 is in a "much better position" to decide how much money actually should be spent. "The appropriations group has a more adequate grasp of where cuts can be made." Taft said. "It can make its decision after it finds out just what funds are left unspent from previous years." Big Balance The Joint Committee on Reduction of Federal Expenditures, headed by Sen. Byrd (D-Va), reported yesterday that on April 1 there was 812,700,000,000 in unexpended balances in appropriations made to the President, mostly in foreign aid.

Iff! — The difference between "laughter" and "slaughter," a speaker told Junior Chamber of Commerce members at a luncheon here, is the letter "S" — which, he added, "stands for selfishness." Louis E. Throtr- mort, vice-president of Republic National Life Insurance Company, was the speaker. He described America as "a nation built, on moonbeams — voluntary desires to create — and not bound by chains of force. "Break a chain and there's nothing left, but cut a moonbeam and it still remains," he said. LAST TIMES TON IT.

In his letter, Clark firmly denied Red accusations that the UNC "connived" with South Korea in the mass prisoner escapes. He wrote that it would be unrealistic and misleading to imply that any large number "could be recovered now that they have disappeared among the population which is disposed to shelter and protect them." Recovery Impossible Clark said: "You undoubtedly realize that the recovery of all these prisoners would be as impossible for us as it would be for your side to recover the 60,000 South Korean prisoners 'released' by your fide during the course of hostilities." Clark was referring to 50.000 South Koreans believed impressed into the Communist armies after being captured in the fighting. Clark inferred that he, as U. N. commander, was prepared to sign •rmistice with the Communists regardless of South Korean objections to the armistice. Twice in his letter he told the tommunist commanders that the armistice talks sougnt is "between nilitary commanders" and then | added that he considered himself commander of the KOK Army as well as the otner United Nations troops. Clark also called for an immediate meeting of the full - dress (nice delegations to pave the way for setting a date for signing the armistice.

Engineers who have been appraising our national needs figura that the bill will run over three billion dollars for the country as a whole. And that's just for physical equipment and installations — that's just for the things which make up a water supply system. What about the men who make these things function? How much should we pay for their knowledge, their experience and, above all, their unceasing vigilance? Everything about a water works involves hip; money except the remuneration of the men responsible for its dependable operation. I'erhaps no other enterprise in America puts more solemn responsibilities upon men and pays them less for accepting them. Our people have been fortunate that so many able and conscientious men have been willing to accept these responsibilities in the face 'of the low financial rewards their services command. But their numbers grow fewer as the cost of living mounts. Already, water systems are finding it difficult to enroll and hold on to younger men qualified fo radvancemcnt to key executive jobs. The will to serve is there but it withers in the face of a dollar that has lost almost half its purchasing power in the course of a decade. Satisfaction in discharging a great public responsibility with honor unfortunately doesn't heat the house or clothe the children or buy food for the table. If billions of dollars must be spent on plant facilities, it becomes all the more important that the men who direct these purchases and operate these facilities shall be of the highest character and ability. Can we afford not to invest thousands in human intelligence and integrity? We need to spend a few dollars more. : Blytheville Water Co. "Water It Your Cheapest Commodity" Command "does not exercise authority over the Republic of Korea." Replying to an angry Red protest over President Syngman Rhee's release of 27,000 anti-Red Korean War prisoners, Clark said: "I believe you realize the armistice which both of us seek is a military armistice between the military commanders of both sides." .In a full-dress meeting June 19, the Communists demanded recap-1 ture of the prisoners 'and assurances the UNC would control South Korea if an armistice were signed. The South Korean government has threatened to continue the war if the UNC signs an armistice on I present terms, which it has resisted stubbornly. Rhee's arbitrary release of the Korean prisoners froze the truce talks Just shore ol signing. All major problems had been settled and only a few minoV details reportedly stood In the way. Clark held to earlier UNC statements that the prisoners "escaped" far as the UNC was concerned, saying: knowledge of and contrary to the intent of. the United Nations Command, planned and arranged the breakout, and the Republic of Korea Army security guards made little real effort to prevent tha escape."
