RMWTWBLVE COUK1KK 17, 1953 Br/'ngs /?e//ef to Much of U.S. IkeReportedReady To Okay Immigrant Bill Compromise By JACK BELL WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower reportedly has told l«gM*tir» leaders he is willing to accept acompromiso on his proposal lions of Illinois and to admit. 240,000 special quota immigrants to this country. Th» President's attitude, said to have been mude clear at a While House conference earlier this week, stirred hope for early approval by the Senate Judiciary Committee of a biU which Sen. Watfcins (R-Utah) •aid would be "usefull as an instrument of foreign policy.'.' Chairman Langer (R-Nd) called the 15-member committee Into a closed session (9 a, m. EST) after being presented with an unusual petition yesterday. Signed by five Republican and three Democratic members, the petition asked for a session of the group tonight if this morning's meeting fails to produce a final vote on the bill. Watkins said the eight who signed, plus Langer, represent a committee majority determined to g«t a bill before the Senate in this session of Congress.

Ready With Elders Sen. McCarran <D-Nev) wa; ready with a series of amend' ments. He has proposed that the total to be admitted be trimmed down to 120.000. plus 4,000 orphans. Watkins has said he would agree to the orphan provision but won't accept such a heavy cut In the total. A compromise figure near 175,000 seemed likely, but McCarran and Watkins apparently still were far apart on what kind of immigrant would be admitted and how long the special quotas would run. McCarran is understood to be insisting that none but Iron Curtain refugees and expelled persons be included in those admitted, while Watkins has held out for the admission of some nationals of coun- ,rics like Italy where the population is overcrowded. McCarran also evidently would like to spread the admissions over j three years, instead of the two proposed by the President, on the ground that the immigration ma- I chinery can't process adequately more than about 5,000 persons a month.

Youths Return To Red China HONG KONG W)—Young Chinese by the hundreds are entering Red China through Hong Kong from overseas Chinese communities. On two days this month more than 430 Chinese students and workers went behind the bamboo curtain after arriving from Pakistan. India. Malaya and Indonesia. Most of them say they are convinced that China has a new and lofty destiny and that they want to work toward it. Some are from families of communist or leftist sympathies who are dissatisfied with life abroad. Some are recruited by the Reds for special activities. Some simply are unemployed youths who want to try life in China and managed to wangle free or cheap transportation.

Atom Cannons Not Overseas WASHINGTON M>)—None of th new atomic cannons are oversea. 1 the Army said yesterday in re sponse to questions prompted b rumors that some of the big weap ons have been sent to Korea. It is known, however, that th' Army has enough of the 280-mi!Ii meter guns to equip some Ameri can forces in Korea if Presiden Eisenhower should consider it act visable. Such a step presumably would bi considered anew if the Commit nists do not quickly agree to ai armistice and if they continue all out offensive operations.
