RAW BLYTHEVU LE (ARK.) COURIER NEW! 'Showdown' Is Due On Truce Thursday (Continued from Page 1) In good faith with the Communists," said Assistant Secretary of State Walter Robertson on his •nival at McChord Field, Wash. Wsenhowsr himself was pictured by V. S. congressional leaders in Washington as believing a Korean truce ie near. The lawmakers said the President and his military advisers regard the big Communist attack as an attempt to straighten out a bulge in the battle line rather than an effort to block a truce. The Communist radio at the North Korean Capital of Pyongyang said last night that 90 per cent of the 27,000 anti-Communist North Korean war prisoners freed from Allied camps last month now are at Pohang, north of Pusan on the east coast. The Red radio attributed its information to a special correspondent at Panmunjom. The broadcast said that since the prisoners now are concentrated in one place, the Allied claim that they have melted into the civilian population and cannot be recaptured does not hold water. The Reds have insisted on the recovery of these prisoners since the first big group fled from U. N stockades on orders of Presiden Rhee June 18. Allied spokesmen declined to comment on the Red broadcast Communist Correspondent Alan Winnington, who frequently'reflects official Red views, said negotiators apparently "made no progress" at Wednesday's session. Winnington has stressed for days that the Communists are far from satisfied with Allied assurances that Rhee will abi£e by the terms o fa truce. "There doesn't seem to be any change today," he commented. Robertson told newsmen at McChord' Field that there are no agreements "which in any way would interfere with an immediate implementation of a truce." The assistant secretary of state stressed that U. S. aims and those of South Korea are the same- unification of the war-battered peninsula, and that he tried to impress that upon Rhee. Jobora Downs 15th MIG; Now Runner-Up Ace SEOUL W—MaJ. James Jabara America's first jet ace, bagged hii 15th Communist MIG today to become the world's second-ranking iet ace. Jabara was on the 95th combat mission of his second Korean tour. The victory also made him the second triple jet ace in history. The 4th Fighter-Interceptor Wing said Jabara downed his I5th jet in a late-afternoon fight with a 'bunch of MIGs." One other MIG was downed in the fighting, the 5th Air Force said, by Capt Clyde A. Curtln. Today's victory puts Jabara within one MIG of the all-time record held by Capt. Joseph McConnell of Apple Valley, Calif., who bagged IS. The Air Force said earlier this week that Jabara would leave for home before the end of July whether or not he completes his tour.

State Ban on Firecrackers To Be Enforced as of August 1 LITTLE ROCK (ff) — Arkansas' new fire marshal, Ernest H. Cox, said today he will begin a campaign to enforce a 1909 Arkansas law banning ihe sale of lirecrackers Aug. 1. Cox said he made the announcement yesterday so that merchants can get rid of fireworks in stock before his campaign begins- The law to which the fire farshal refers prohibits the sale of toy pistols, cannon crackers or guns that shoot blank cartridges. Cox said he won't attempt to enforce the portion dealing with toy pistols. "The law needs revision," Cox said, adding that he hope the Legislature will enact new statutes, to outlaw the sale of firecrackers and other pyrotechnics. Cox blamed fireworks for a great many fires, and said the present drought situation in Arkansas calls for caution. A Little Rock fireworks Wholesal- er, W. H. Goodman, said he didn't think Cox would apply the 1909 law | to present day fireworks because! the "cannon" firecrackers have gone out of existence. — j Officers Installed By Blytheville KG Council Officers of the Blytheville Coun cil of Knights of Columbus for tin coming year were installed las night at the Catholic School b; State Deputy J.
