PAOB POVSTHM BLYTHEYILLE (ARK.)' COURIER MlWi WEDNESDAY, APRIt IT, 1968 World Peace Hopes Better, Newsmen Told (Continued from Page H a meeting with the Russians. Eisenhower declined to give details of his correspondence with Marshal Zhukov until the Soviet government official gives the word. , Elsenhower and Zhukov boon me well acquainted during occupation days in Berlin immediately after the defeat of Germany in World War H. Planned Visit At that lime, Zhukov once made plans — never carried through — to visit the United States. Today, in the talk about Elson- hower's correspondence with Zhu- kov, the President was asked .specifically about a published report Mint he 'asked Zhukov to intervene •to seek the release of American airmen imprisoned by Red China. The President replied he was not at liberty to discuss the contents of the correspondence exchange. He added that he would not want to be a party to possibly jeopardizing any world betterment that might flow from the exchange. He described the exchange as personal and confidential, and added that it would be up to Zhu- kov as to whether it should be made public. The report of ihe correspondence was published by Newsweek magazine which said Zhukov initialed it. • This was Eisenhower's first news conference in a month nnd It dealt with this broad range of topics: POLITICS — The President touched off a round of laughter when he Said that on V-E day marking the end of the war in Europe 10 years ago next month, he thought that he hnd reached the end of his career. With a somewhat wistful smile, Eisenhower added that he envisioned peaceful days of retirement on his farm nt Gettysburg, PH., but that retirement there still seems to be a long way off, Thinking they may have unearthed a clue to a presidential decision to seeking a second term next year, newsmen laughed heartily. The President joined In tho laughter, then remarked that nt his nge, 21 monUis— the length of the remainder of his first term — Btill seems like a long time. CONGR£SS~The chief executive declared it Is still too enrly for any assessment of the record of the Democratic - controlled 84 Ih Congress. On one point, of legislation, however, he said a couple of amendments which the Senate Finance Committee wrote into the administration bill to extend the reciprocal trade net three years will require considerable study before their full effect unn be determined, He added, however, that one amendment put into the bill by the committee is a very fine one. That was the proposnl sponsored by the committee chairman, Sen. Byrd (D-Va), giving the President discretion to Impose import quoins on certain commodities, where national security might be involved. GOVERNMENT INFORMATION — Eisenhower declared he is unalterably opposed to publiciilion ol any technical military secrets merely because, as he phrn.scd it, one or the other federal department dbslres to be first with the He can see no reason, Eisenhower added, for having to make public information about a U. S. airplane which is nble to fly straight up. The Navy hits developed such a vertical Inkoolf craft. The President's remarks were in reply to a request for common! on the Defense Department's now information policy, which lias done muchv to dry up military in'u-s.

It was not disclosed whether or not the vehicle was damaged. The Ford was found near the spot where another car was reported stolen. BRICKER (Continued from Paee 1) but Kefauvcr disclosed Monday that Ihe While House hud ordered an indefinite delay. Dulles aalcl yes- iL-rdjty he remains opposed to the Brlckcr amendment. He sftld tl>» delay had been ordered bocnu.se some other administration officials were not prepared to testify: The Bricker amendment would provide that: 1. No treaty or other intornatlon- al agreement which conflicts wiUi the Constitution shall have any effect; arid 2. No treaty or executive agreement shall be effective as U.S. Internal law except through legislation which would be valid In the absence ol a treaty. Keiil Danger Bricker contends there i* a real clanger that a treaty, or even an executive agreement not requiring the approval of the Senate, may bu used to take away basic constitutional rights or to encroach upon legislative fields which the Constitution reserves to the states. President Elsenhower said the amendment would hinder his conduct of foreign affairs. Bricker, taking note of the argument that his proposal would tie the President's hantlw, said they already arc tied by restraints written Into the Constitution, and he continued: "My amendment would ... Lie the President's hands . . . only to the extent that he could not make international agreements In conflict with the Constltuion nor make one-man law for he people of the United Stales by executive agreement. "Why shouldn't the President's hands be tied to that extent?" ". . . My amendment would not tie the President's hands in the scn.se that he could not act promptly In lime of emergency or carry out an effective foreign policy."

"Important Distinction" "In any question where property is involved, the Nationalists must be represented," he added. "I think this country .is in the wood to stop the killing now." Smith said he thought Dulles had drawn an "Important distinction" between cease-fire and other talks in saying this country Intends to try to find out if Red China's premier Chou En-lai was sincere in proposing a two-nation conference to seek relaxation of Par East tensions. Sen. Bridges 'R-NH), Senate OOP Policy Committee chairman, told newsmen: "Personally, I think it Would be a great mistake to sit down in any conference and ignore the Chinese Nationalists who have been our allies through thick and thin." Senate Republican Leader Knowland of California, one of the Nationalists' chief backers in Con- Kress, withheld comment. But Chairman George (D-Ga) of ilie Foreign Relations Committee .said he "Wouldn't lose the opportunity" to sit down with the Chinese Communists to discuss present tensions even if the Nationalists weren't represented. In the House, Rep. Judd (R- Mimi) said "we would he falling... for a characteristic (Red Chinese) maneuver" in agreeing to direct negotiations with Peiping over Formosa. Same Maneuver Judd sad "this is the same ly passed a version containing some four million dollars less cash. A Senate-House conference committee will adjust differences. maneuver" Chou En-Ui used In 1946 to win a truce In the battle with the Nationalists for the Chinese mainland and later to obtain protracted Korean truce talks. Judd. a House Foreign Affairs committeeman, suggested that Red China's offer to negotiate be referred to the United Nations. He said, too, any U.N, negotiations should await concrete concessions such as 1. release of American prisoners held "in violation of the Korean truce," 2. Chinese evacuation of North Korea and reduction of "their illegal bu'ldup" there, and 3. An end to strengthening of Communist North Viet Nam "in complete violation" of Geneva armistice terms. The administration has indicated it would prefer United Nations handling of Formosa cease-fire negotiations. Chairman Richards <D-SC\ of the Foreign Affairs Committee said in a separate interview Chou's offer to negotiate was "not encouraging" in view df a subsequent Chinese statement of unchanged intention to "liberate" Formosa. ' Meanwhile, Dulles was expected to ask Premier Mohammed AH of Pakistan to seek clarification of Chou En-lai's intentions concerning Formosa negotiations. Mohammed Ali has emerged in the role of go-between. Dulles told his news conference yesterday he was uncertain what Chou meant in saying no cohfer- ence should deny Red China's "sovereign right" to "liberate" Formosa from the Nationalists. Wholesale Food Prices Drop NEW YORK f/P)—Wholesale food prices as measured by the Dun & Bradstreet index dropped this week HOUSING (Continued from Pag« U allow only six to eight per cent net return, roost local builders are not Interested in tying up their money In such projects. Under Title 608,' a builder could get almost 95 per cent loans on rental housing, but this was the area of much fraud and abuse. Recent Investigations revealed housing scandals, and this provision cannot be used any more. Three Wayf There are three general ways in which the rental housing problem can be met, though chances of aid from any of them is considered slim by real estate men here: 1. Defense housing under Title 9, under which the area must be declared a critical defense area. 2. Use of the Wherry Housing Plan under Title 8, which provides for PHA to contract for housing on or adjacent to the base to be built by private contractors who must provide 10 per cent of the amount needed in cash. 3. The Air Force get a special appropriation from Congress for to the lowest point since May 12, 1953. The Index stood at $6.42 compared with $C.52 a week ago and $7.39 a year ago. The decline this week was the sharpest in eight months. The index represents the total cost of wholesale of one pound each of 31 foods In general use. Dun & Bradstreet said no one food accounted for the decline this week. Foods going down in prico at wholesale Included corn, hams, bellies, lard, butter, sugar, coffee, tea. cocoa, beans, peas, eggs, hogs and lambs. Higher were flour, wheat, rye, oats, beef and rice. base housing- need:. Some help miy bt obUlncd through the Title 9 plin though to have any locale declared t "critical defense area" Is extremely difficult anil usually from two to three years. Under this plan, contractors would b* able to finance rental projects much more easily. They would ,be able U> g«t »S per cent loans with better terms. Mortjait Market Lackinf This provision also permit! financing through Federal National Mortgage Association, which would provide the mortgage market which ll now lacking. The wherry Housing plan would probably be the most desirable for the Blytheville situation. This i* the emergency housing plan which provides for PHA to come into a defense area and contract with private builders to construct needed housing unite. The builder i« required to put up 10 per cent of the project's cost. The only difficulty here is that the Wherry Act expires June 1, and chances are slight that any action can be taken under the law in that time. There is a bill before Congress now to replace the Wherry Act, with some changes, though when, and if, it will be enacted Is conjectural. Analysis Made The possibility of a special appropriation to the Air Force for construction of needed facilities is considered unlikely, particularly within the time space during which the units will be needed. An FHA market analysis of the Blytheville housing situation, both present and future, has been made, but results of the survey have not been announced. However, present available rental facilities in Blytheville would supply no more than 10 per cent of requirements, one realtor estimated. Most real estate men and contractors view the prospects in * pretty dismal light. I GOODALL-SANFORD. INC. MFG. OF CLOTH here's 5 summer outfits on one hanger...
