(NBA Telephoto) Lester Pearson Gets Nobel Prize For Aiding Peace Helped To Settle Things Down In Korea And Mideast OSLO, Norway W — The 1057 Peace Prize was awarded ay to Canada's Lester [kwles Pearson, who helped stop the fighting in Korea and the Middle East. It was voted by a committee of the Norwegian Parliament, acting wrader the will of Alfred Nobel, inventor of dynamite. The $40,275 prize money wall be handed to Pearson, Dec, 10., anniversary of Nobel's death in 1696. Ironically, the', awamd comes to dm four months after he lost his ob as Canadian foreign secretary. He was a victim of June Sections which ended the-Liberal party's hold on the Canadian government. The new foreign secre- STy is Sidney E. Smith, a Con- siervaitive. The Awards Committee made 10 statement of its reasons for lonoring Pearson, but it must rave had. in mind tihe work he did in the United Nations last faJI -after Britain and Firan.ce joined Israel in attacking Egypt. Peace was brought about there by formation of a U. N. Emergency Force to separate fine bdliger- ants, and Pearson is known as the father' of that force. He proposed it "beep the Palestine border at peace while a Pacific settlement is- being worked out," and pledged Canada's ing for it. "• US,Backed It Tine Uinited States supported the proposal and the U. N. Assembly approved it. The force, known as UNEF, is still operating. Pearson in his nine -years as foreign secretary engaged in ma my behiod-the-scenes' conferences on world problems. He was a member cf a U. N. committee •which, tried vainly to win a cease- fire to Korea in 1S50. Later he was president of the U. 'N. General Assembly when -an agreement was reached for the Korean armistice. He was a leader in tihe fonma- tion of the Atlantic Alliance. An indication' off the distinction of the award came in the Norwegian committee's announcement that'it bad found no one eligible for bhe M56 peace prize. It previously passed up -fche award for 1055. In 1954 the award went to the office.of the U. N. axmmis- sioner-for refugees. , : , • Pearson is the first ; Cana<iian to get it • Ancestors Ministers^ His fathier acd grandfather were Methodist clergymen." .He was born in Toronto April 23, 1B97", and .got the nickname "Mike"- in Worid.'War I, in which he served •wifih.' a hospital unit and later became a flight lieutenant.

It was a pretty safe bet that the 1957 Nobel Prize would go to someone who helped stop tine fighting in Egypt last fall. The only question was whether it would go to.Lester B. Pearson, former foreign secretary of Canada, or-'to U.N. Secretary General Bag Hainmarskjold, Botih .were key .figures in the outstanding peace adiieveinieint of the past year. .---..-. Just why Pearson got tie nod over ; Hammarskjold tor the $40,275-award is known only to the Nobel committee in Osto. one ait the U.N. disputes foe importance of the role "Mike" fear- son played during the critical.days of, early November. Pearson,, long an energetic and resourceful negotiator," was the father of the U.N. Emergency Faroe. And, what is not, generally known, he worked tirelessly behind the scenes-to get Britain, France and Israel to withdraw tiheiir forces torn Egypt. . . . Perhaps' the initiatove of Pearson in proposing the creation of ONEF, .more i'han anyone factor, pointed the way to. the cease-fire and subsequent troop withdrawals. He tossed it out during a night meeting'of- tihe General Assembly last Nov. 2 and it was quickly-endorsed -by Siecrefcary of State Dules and others. Pearson worked closely with Hammarskjold in drafting ' the UNEF.plain. He was the. first'to offer to contribute troops.for it and he • later took a, leading part ia working out the formula for de- pioying : tine-forces in such a«way as to win over Israel to pull out the last invading forces; In giving the award to Pearson, tfae committee may also have had in mind has many years as peacemaker., For example, ..he served on a U.N. cease-fire group which tried 1 umsuccessfuiUy to halt fche Korean fighting in 1950. In • tihat year, incidentally, another U.N. figure, Dr. Ralph Bunche, won the Nobel Prize for helping bring about the 1949 armistice which ended an earlier Palestine conflict. It's interesting that Pearson gets the award- at a time he is dSier foreign secretary of his country nor. a delegate to the U.N. Assembly. "He lost both jobs following last June's election upset. The award • may • help him po- litiicaly when Canadians hold their next election, perhaps next year. There is a good chance, that he wil" become leader of Ms party before fchen. He would become prime minister if: the Liberals win: Sees Higher Rale For Newspaper Services BOSTON m — Associate Prof. Pointer McEvoy of Indiana- University, an expert 'on newspaper finances, said in an ^interview here that increased newspaper production costs must lead to increases in the ' price .-of. newspapers and their advertising rates. He predicted metropolitan newspapers, will -make increased use of separate local editions advertising suburban stores.
