Comrades Are Quoted The army issued a 4'/ 2 .pnge ve- port studded with quotes from comrades of the two soldiers and their commanding officers. The two soldiers were Pvt. Kenneth C .Lease Jr., of the Seventh Infantry Division and Cpl. Robert O. Scheirer of the Third Division. Both soldiers were from Allentown, pa. Lease wrote home the day before he was killed—June 198tliat. ammunition had been taken from his unit because of the expected signing of an armistice. Scheirer wrote home the day before he was killed on June 11 that "armored vests were taken away. We were told we would not need them any more." Family Changes Mind In Allentown, Scheirer's family said they now considered their son's death a battle casualty. They said one letter received from their son told of surrendering his helmet and armored vest because his outfit was "going into reserve.' 'But another letter written a short time later said the equipment was reissued because Scheirer's outfit was going back Chicago Corn Jly Sep High Low Close 156(4 154'/ 2 15 151>/3 149% 150% Chicago Wheat Jly High Low Close 1911/s i89>/< 190'/ 195% 193J4 194i/ 2 Chicago Soybeans Jly Sep Nov .......... 259',i Jan .......... 262% High 2791/4 265 Low 275i,' 2 261i/ 2 257 2601/2 Close 277!/2 258V 261 1 /2 New York Stock* A T and T 153 Amer Tobacco 74 Anaconda Copper 34 Beth Steel 51 Chrysler 72 Coca-Cola 110 Gen Electric 72 Gen Motors 60 Montgomery Ward 59 N Y Central 24 Int Harvester 27 J C Penney Republic Steel ...

S. co-operation in striving for "peaceful unification" of Ko rea. The source said Rriee first ap peared delighted with Eobertson't oral explanation, but later injected "new angles, new meanings" which were rejected by Robertson. He said Rhee agreed to write "in his own hand" another Elate ment of South Korea's stand on a truce and Robertson is awaiting this statement. No More Talks The source made it clear the Robertson mission is the only one which will negotiate with Rhee fore an armistice is signed. If this attempt fails, there will be no more. There was no official confirma- >ion of reports that a mutual security pact has been drafted, but a U. S. news correspondent saw a document titled "Military Alliance Between the United States and the Republic of Korea" lying on a table in the South Korean Defense Ministry. He did not have an opportunity to lift the cover. ROK officers snatched it from the table and carried it away. Rhee has demanded a security pact before a truce is signed. President Eisenhower, in a letter to Rhee June 6, promised to negotiate a pact after an armistice. Any such treaty would require U. S. Senate approval and there were reports from Washington that senators would turn down a pact calling for American soldiers to start shooting again in Korea in -the event war breaks out once more. Rhee attacked British Prime Minister Winston Churchill Wednesday for criticizing South Korea's release of 27.000 anti-Communist Korean War prisoners from U. N. stockades. "Insults" Churchill said he was "shocked and grieved" Dy Rhee's action in ordering the release. Rhee, in written answers to questions submitted by a correspondent for the London Daily Herald, declared: "I must say we were quite shocked by the remarks of the British Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill. All our people take them as insults." Rhee also said Gen. Clark made a "mistake" in accusing Rhee of violating his promise to the Allied command by releasing the cap- CONCRETE BEAUTY—Screen stars Marilyn Monroe, left, and Jane Russell have their hand- prints preserved for posterity at Grauman's Chinese Theater, home of Hollywood's Hall of Fame.

The South Korean President said Clark apparently thought the prisoner release was an initial step toward pulling the ROK Army from the U. N. Command. Rhee said this was not so and "he (Clark) should have reported that his charge of violation was not correct." Sximmerlin quoted the high iource, who asked not to be named, is saying Rhee is "stubbornly turning against the spirit of free vorld unity." Asked about Rhee's public de- nands that he needs "something concrete" to show his people be- ore approving a truce, the source •eplied: "He has everything he needs to show his people." Rhee often has called for a 90- lay limit on the post-armistice leace talks, with the war to re- lume if no agreement is reached. The source said Robertson told Rhee both the U. S. and South £orea might walk out of a con- erence within 90 days if they greed that the Reds were using lie talks to "obtain ends they were lot able to obtain otherwise." "It is too early to say it (Robrtson's mission) is a failure," the ource said. He added that "no time limits vould be set" on the Rhee-Robevt- on negotiations and the "door is :ot closed."
