Comrades Are Quoted The army issued a 4>,i-page report studded with quotes from com. rades of the two soldiers and theii commanding officers. The two soldiers were Pvt. Kenneth C .Lease Jr., of the Seventh Infantry Division and Cpl. Robert G. Scheirer of the Third Division. Both soldiers were from Allentown, pa. Lease wrote home the day before he was killed—June 198that 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 Jly Sep High 166Vi Chicago Wheat Jly Sep High 1911/s 195% Low 154"/ 2 149% Low 189 1 /, 193'A Chicago Soybeans Jly Sep Nov Jan High 279'/i 265 259ft 262% 257 260'/ 2 Close 155ft 150% Close 190ft Close 277 Vi (2641/4 2581/2 261 'A New York Stocks A T and T Amer Tobacco Anaconda Copper Beth steel Chrysler Coca-Cola .. 153 1-2 ... 74 ... 34 3-4 ... 51 1-8 .. 72 1-2 ... 110 1-2 Gen Electric 72 Gen Motors CO 1-8 Montgomery Ward 59 1-4 N Y Central 24 3-4 Int Harvester 275-8 J C Penney 69 Republic Steel 483-8 Radio 24 3-8 Socony Vacuum 345-8 Studebaker 307-8 Standard of N J 71 1-2 Texas Corp 53 1-4 Sears 59 U S Steel 38 5-8 Bou Pac 44 5- Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, 111 W— (USDA)— Hogs 3,000; weights 190 Ibs up 50 to 75 higher; weights over 240 Ibs very uneven; hghtei weights steady to 25 higher; sows 25 higher; spots up 50; bulk choice 190-240 Ibs 26.50-27.00; 250-280 Ibs 25.25-26.50; 170-180 Ibs 25.50-26.25; 150-170 Ibs 23.50-25.50; 120-14 Ibs 2.5-2.5; sows 40 Ibs down 0.5022.00; heavier sows 18.25-19.75.

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-Corn' munist Korean War prisoners from U. N. stockades. "Insults" Churchill said he was "shocked and grieved" ny 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.

The South Korean President saici 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 harge of violation was not correct." Sum merlin quoted the high source, who asked not to be named, is saying 1 Rhee is "stubbornly Aiming against the spirit of tree 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- day limit on the post-armistice teace talks, with the war to re- ;ume if no agreement is reached. The source said Robertson told Rhee both the U. S. and South •Corea might walk out of a con- erence within 90 days if they greed that the Reels were using he talks to "obtain ends they were ot 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 /ould be set" on the Rhee-Roberton negotiations and the "door is !0t closed."
