WEDNESDAY, JULY 8, 1958 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THKEH Ike Looks For Unified Korea But It Will Come by Quiet, Peaceful Means By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH WASHINGTON (AP)—President Eisenhower said today this government looks forward to and intends to work for the peaceful re-unification of Korea. The President declined at his news conference, however, to eay whether he lifts received any indication that South Korean President Syngman Rhee might be will- Ing to go along with the proposed armistice. And he declared that at this point no man can tell bow the : troubles in Korea are going to | come out. Eisenhower noted at the start of his conference that the Communists have announced willingness-to proceed with truce arrangements, in line with the U. N. proposal of June 29. That proposal, submitted to the Reds by Gen. Mark W. Ctr;-k, called for proceeding without the South Koreans if necessary. Eisenhower said he wanted to make it clear that every one in the U. S. understands the aspira- '*-; tions of Rhee, who has balked at signing an armistice unless it calls for unification of North and South Korea. Win.? Work For It The President said every one has a warm spot in their hearts for all that South Korea has done in the three-year old struggle against Communist aggressions. Then he went on to say we look forward to reunification of Korea by peaceful means and intend to work for it. The President itlso: 1. Commenting on the uprisings In East Germany, said he finds it very significant that representatives of two great American labor organizations have asked him to take the initiative in aiding workers of Soviet-occupied Germany in their struggle against Soviet totalitarianism. The appeal, he added, is significant because the Communists claim that workers in Soviet-controlled areas are living in a workers' paradise. 2. Declared the time has come to crive the American people more information about the atomic energy program. The present law covering that matter is outmoSsd, ha said, and it is time to be more frank with the people. 3. Said he would have no real objection to traveling to London, instead of Bermuda, for a Big Three conference with British and French leaders. He added, however, that he has received no proposal that such a switch be made. 4. Declined to express any view i on the possible outcome of gubernatorial elections in cither Pennsyl-, vania or Virginia. His policy, the ' President said, is to keep hands off local and state elections. i 5. Said Secretary of the Interior . McKay is trying to find the best j possible man to serve as Indian commissioner. The President said he promised the Indian tribes dur- j ing the campaign they would be Commodity And Stock York Cotton Open High Low Close July ....... 3364 3364 3348 33S1 Oct ....... 3416 3430 3404 3418 Dec ....... 3432 3446 3420 3438 Mch ....... 3451 3466 3437 345« New Orleans Cotton July Oct Dec Mch Open High Low Close 3350 3365 3350 3350 3413 3430 3406 3420 3433 3447 3422 3437 3450 3468 3442 3457 Chicago Soybeans High Low Close Jly ........ .'. 2.75% 2.71K 2.74 Sep ......... 2.63y< 2.61 2.62V4 2.57i4 2.5414 2.56',4 2.61 2.58 2.60 Nov Jan Chicago Corn I Jly High Low Close 1.57 1.55% 1.56 Chicago Whear Jly Sep High Low Close 1.98 ',4 1.94% 1.97V4 2.0214 1.9814 2.00 New York Stocks A T and T .................. 153 3 i Amer Tobacco ............. 14% Anaconda Copper .......... 34 r /2 Beth Steel ................. 51% Chrysler .................... 72 V4 Coca-Cola .................. 110 Gen Electric .............. 13% Gen Motors .. .............. 60Vi Montgomery Ward ........ 59'A N Y Central ................ 25 Int Harvester .............. 27 7 / 8 J C Penney ................ 71 Republic Steel ............... 4914 Radio , ..................... 24% Socony Vacuum ............ 34 7 / 8 Studebaker ................. 31 Standard of N J ........... 72% Texas Corp ..... . .......... 53 14 Sears ....................... 58y a U S Steel .................. 39 Sou Pac . . .................. 44% consulted regarding that appointment and that will be done. 6.

"1. Break relations between the Republic of Korea and America. "2. Ruin the negotiations now.go- ing on between President Rhee and the American government. "3. Make the United States' world position more difficult than ever." He declined to say what eteps his government planned. . The Communists' letter was addressed to Gen. Clark, who as U. N. commander is empowered to sign a truce without South Korea. The letter was signed by Marshall Kim II Sung of North Korea and Red Chinese Gen. Peng Teh-huai. Displeasure The Reds expressed displeasure because Clark did not guarantee in his June 29 message that Rhee will order his troops to observe a truce. And the letter added:: "Our side holds that your side must take effective steps regard- ins the observance by the South Korean government and Army of the armistice agreement nnd all other related agreements . . ." The Communists also again accused the U. N. Command of 'conniving" in the mass breakout f anti-Red war prisoners. Clark denied the accusation in his June 29 message and blamed Rhee for the escapes. 'We hold that regarding this your side must shoulder the absolute responsibility for ensuring that no such incidents will occur again," the letter said. And as for the prisoners who escaped, the Reds declared: "Your side bears at all times the responsibility for recovering all those escaped prisoners of war." In his letter to the Red high command, Clark told the Communists it would be "impossible" to recover the escaped captives because they have melted into the civilian population. The Communist letter was sped ay helicopter from Panmunjom to the advance base at Munsan, from where it was relayed to Tokyo and Washington. NEXT? — Walter TJlbricht, Moscow-trained, and the Kremlin's most trusted German henchman, may replace Otto Grotewohl us East Germany's prime minister. Even now, although only a deputy premier, he wields more power than Grotewohl, the front man. The premier is reported on the Soviet purge list because of the rebellion in his puppet state.
