WEDNESDAY, JULY 29,1953 U.S. Wants to Know Who Will Sit in Peace Confab By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — The answer to this question — what nations will take part in the Korean peace conference? — is of great concern to the United States. But no one, including the United States, has the answer yet. BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.)' COUKrER NEWS PAGE THREE Army Tells Of Massacre On one side of the peace table will be the Chinese and North Korean Communists. On the other will be the United States and South Korea and some members of the United Nations. But just who those other D. N. delegates will be is to be decided [ some time between 'and late October. mid-August Secretary of State Dulles was reported to have told a Senate foreign relations subcommittee behind closed doors recently that one of his gravest problems is how to prevent this country being outvoted by other U. N. members at the conference. Withdraw Troops? Whether the United tSates would be outvoted by its friends would depend on the issue being considered. For instance: should the Communists and the United Nations withdraw all their troops from Korea? One State Department official said he thought the United States would do in the peace conference what it does regularly In the U. N. Itself: It tries to iron out differences between itself and others before there is any formal open voting The peace conference opens about Oct. 28. On Aug. 17 the U. N. General Assembly meets in New York to pick a place for the conference and consider the composition of the U. S. delegation. The U. N. has 60 members. ; ) The fighting against the Communists in Korea was made in the name of the U. N. but only about one quarter of the 60 contributed any fighting forces. Besides the United States anc South Korea, which is not a U. N member, these were the only U. N. members who provided ground 01 air forces: Britain, Australia, France, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, jjelgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Greece, Turkey, Ethiopia, The Philippines, Thailand and Colombia. Small Contribution Some of those 15 contributed only a tiny fraction of the fighting force. Should all of them sit down with the United States and South Korea? And what of others which didn't contribute any fighting strength at all? India, for instance, might be given a delegate's seat at the conference because It had worked for an armistice. Would Russia be included in the U. N. delegation? Russia not only Christians Are Arrested BONG KONG (/?)— A pro-Nationalist newspaper today said 30 Christian clergymen in the Communist China city of Szewui were arrested Monday on charges of guiding a plane which dropped anti-Red leaflets over the city. The newspaper Wah Kiu Yat Po said the clergymen were tried and beaten, then released. didn't help the TJ. N. forces but i State Department that officials contributed supplies for the Com. munists on the other side. At the General Assembly meeting next month the United States no doubt will fight to have at the most only those nations which contributed fighting forces allowed to take part in the conference. Perhaps it will try to get the assembly to authoriez an even smaller pence delegation. But there Is no indication at the there yet know what their position will be in the assembly meeting. They don't seem to have made up their minds yet. No decision is likely until after Secretary of State Dulles returns from South Korea. He Is flying there this weekend to confer with President Syngman Bhee. Dulles has indicated he would object to Russia as a U. N. representative.
