N. headquarters In New York announced that 16 Allied nations with troops in Korea have promised to take up arms again in the event of a new Communist attack. But Britain and Canada later hedged their commitment. Dulles and Rhee. in a joint statement issued as the security pact was initialed, hailed their work as "an Important contribution to the development of independence and freedom in the Par East." Agree to Walkout They also announced a United States-Korea agreement to walk out of the forthcoming political conference if both feel after 90 days that the Communists are "exploiting" efforts to achieve peace in Korea. Dulles, his mission to Korea completed, flew to Tokyo Saturday evening on the first leg of his trip back to Washington. Dulles said he and Japanese Prime Minister Shigeru Yoshida would meet Saturday night to "talk over matters of common concern, both relating to Japan and to the as is consistent with our respon sibillties." Dulles and his advisers also dls cussed with South Korean leaders a vast program of economic sic planned by the United States t< rebuild the war-shattered land. Th< three to four-year program con templates one billion dollars in American aid, of which 200 million already has been approved by Con gress. Joint Statement two governments swapped ideas and drtfted plans for working side by side to achieve peace, just as they did in fighting the war, Dulles said. The joint Rhee-Dulles statement said they hope their exchange of views "will establish a prepara- :ory foundation for coordinated ef- orts at the political conference." The high-level international talks, according to the armistice terms, free world position East.' in the Par Dulles promised another statement before leaving Japan for Washington Sunday. The security pact agreed upon by Dulles and Rhee provides for basing American troops in Korea. But the secretary of state told a news conference that "we want to get our armed forces home as soon must open by Oct. 27. The talks are aimed at finding a way to unite North and South Korea by peaceful means and fixing a time for withdrawal of Chinese and U. N. forces from the peninsula. Dulles told newsmen other matters might arise for debate. These could include such Asian issues as the fate of Formosa and the Indochina war. But Dulles' and Rhee agreed not to let the political conversations drag on without progress. If, after 90 days, the United States and South Korea see "that the conference is being exploited by the Communist delegates mainly to infiltrate, propagandize or otherwise embarrass the Republic of Korea," the two nations will walk out, they said. The conference almost certainly would collapse if these two countries pulled out, official quarters agree. Fiery President Rhee has clamored for Allied support of resuming the war if unification is not achieved and the walkout becomes fact. Great Results Possible But the Dulles-Rhee statement said the two nations if they leave the talks will "consult further regarding the attainment of a unified, free and independent Korea which is the post-war goal the Dnited States set for itself during World War U. Dulles told newsmen "I believe :t possible to complete great and 50od results by peaceful means. This is an abiding conviction of EIGHT PAGES SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS nine." But Rhee bitter foe of a truce vhich left Korea divided, has expressed absolutely no faith in political talks with the Communists. Time and again, the 78-year-old Korean leader has said what cannot be gained on the battlefield will never be won at a conference i able. | The joint statement said the O.S. ecognizes that South Korea 'possesses the inherent right of overeignty to deal with its prob- ems, but it has agreed to take no nilateral action to unite Korea by nilitary means for the agreed du- ation of the political conference." In response to newsmen's questions, Dulles explained that "the agreed duration of the political con- , subject to a cutoff. Se« DULLES Page 8 KEDS DON'T LIKE THEIR U. N.

Both men said the Americans who turned down repatriation were hated because they had turned in former for the Reds. "We had quite a bit of that," said Cpl. Tommie Hampton of hicago. He said one "stool pig. :on" had been killed by fellow prisoners. Cpl. Thomas Murray of Balti nore, Md., who spent 32 months n a Red stockade, said definitely knew of eight Americans who :urned down a chance to return .0 freedom because "they were scared to come back." He said bitterly of one:, "He was a rat, a squealer. If ic came across the line I doubt f he would have lived to get here at Inchon." Murray talked to newsmen at Jichon where he is awaiting return o the United States by ship. M. Sgt. Louie M. Leach of Co- umbus, Ga., said three Americans t his camp stayed behind.

We told them we would throiv lem over the side of the ship, here's guys up there who would ive their lives to get even." Murray said prisoners called the ght "progressives," or Red eym- athizers. but he didn't think that as why they refused repatriation.

(President Eisenhower was informed immediately of the report but had no comment. U. S. Atomic Energy Commission officials declined to discuss the matter. (The United stales has never said officially that it has developed a hydrogen bomb, which would carry many times the wallop of the atomic bomb.

Poverty-stricken Korean civil- tional referendum Aug. 14. The quotas, which require approval of at least two-thirds of the votiiiy, are designed to help restrict production in the face of a record supply and a surplus far above needs. Benson said his department had tried hard "in a completely unbiased way" to see that every fanner has a chance to know exactly what is involved in the referendum. "The decision." he added, "is I now up to wheat fanners themselves." The secretary gave this exnln- nation of the Apartment's talk tion on the referendum in for a radio program: He invoked the quotas—subject to farmer approval — because in ., the first place, "we have too much ' , e , wheat." lj:lck "All-out production was continued too long.

Allied officers estimated returning Reds have discarded thousands of dollars worth of prison gear which under the Geneva Convention must be the same quality of clothing as American soldiers wear at the front.

N. prisoners' went off much as the Keds. the Communists showed no Murray yesterday told newsmen e knew of seven Americans who !fused repatriation, but today hanged the figure to eight. He id he had miscounted. He said six were white and two igroes. Another POW, Cpl. Roosevelt Powell Jr., 25, of Okmulgee, Okla., said he and Leach knew the same three Americans who refused repatriation. "They tried hard to get information," Powell said, "and we tried to keep it from them." Others of the SO Americans, including GO Negroes, wiio came back Saturday from North Korean prison camps added a new twist to life in the Red stockades—the smoking by some captives of a narcotic weed, possibly marijuana. They said prisoners held at Pyoktong on the Yalu River just south of Manchuria found the weed—which gave an intoxicating effect when smoked—while on wood gathering forays outside the compounds. Ffc. Robert I. Brooks, 23, o! Reidsville, S. c., said the Chinese "could have stopped" its use "it they had really wanted to." Another liberated POW, Cpl. Albert Dixon, 26, of Manchester, Iowa, declared the Reds had made some effort to stop the practice. Brooks said he thought the Communists encouraged its use "because if they figured they .could make a junkie out of you, you would be willing to do what they wanted." Acted Drunk Some prisoners said only a few men smoked the weed, but Pvt. Willie J. Rudd of Los Angeles told newsmen that at one time in his camp the Reds isolated 50 prisoners in a special narcotics ward. Pvt. Godfrey Jones of Scarboro, W. Va., likened the weed to hashish or East Indian .hemp smoked In many Oriental countries for its intoxicating effects. D'xon said the weed reacted on it. jsers like a drink. "It seemed to make them feel good," Rudd declared. Dixon ssl.d the prisoners were forced to .submit ,H i3doctrina:.V,.ti classes hut added, "Communism isn't fit for a dog." Agreeing with Dixon were Pfc. Nathaniel S. Thomas of Alliance, Ohio, and Pfc. Leroy Broom of Albany, On. All three were in the same camp. Cpl. Robert I.

"I thought they were taking tho wrong road." He said some of the "progressives" were separated from tho others and given further courses in communism.

The gas contract negotiations Were completed at a. meeting i Thursday in Little Rock attended by Jack Cuadra, Ark-Mo's chief gas engineer, and representatives of Strategic Air Command, Tactical Air Command, Corps of Engineers and Air Force contract Officers. A connection charge of $20,982.90 will be assessed the Air Force [or installation of the base gas system, but this money will be recovered through credits given by Ark-Mo on monthly base ens bills. Each month a 10 per cent credit will be given ntll the Air Force has been repaid tbl» »mount. This paid for last year totaled $20.041. Tom Tinnon of Mountain Home, attorney for North Arkansas Electric Co-Op of Salem, was the speaker. He stressed that members own the co-operative and have the final sny as to its policies, warning that "you must support public power development for your own self-interest — competition keeps rates down and means you pay less for the electricity you use than you would if the commercial power companies had the field to themselves. " Mr. Tinnon praised the co-ops for Improving the standard of living of rural people, reminding his listeners of the hardships on the farm before the days of rural electrification. Harry L.
