*AGE TWELVE BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NBWf WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1J, Dulles Skeptical Of Malenkov's H-Bomb Claim No Evidence Found Of Explosion Inside Soviet Union WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Dulles said today he accepts with some skepticism Russian Premier Malenkov's implied claim that Russia has mastered production of the hydrogen bomb. Milenkov said last week-end that the United States no longer has a monopoly on H-bomb production —apparently meaning the Soviet Union knows the secret, too. Dulles told a news conference the United States has no independent evidence that Russia has the super-powerful bomb. Specifically, he said. American authorities have not detected evi dence of a hydrogen bomb explo slon within the Soviet Union, ei ther before or after Malenkov', surprise assertion Saturday. Dulles said also that Malenkov's hydrogen bomb speech by impli cation confirmed the truth of Western charges that the Soviets have faild to give adequate return in consumer goods to the Russiar people for their labor. He said too, Malenkov's address showed Russian despeotism has been so complete that the Soviet people had no knowledge or participation in the plans of their rulers. Other Points Dulles made these other points: 1. The middle of October would be a good target date for the Holding of a political conference with Chinese and North Korean representatives. He said the site could be in a neutral country but he did not specify any one. 2. The United States believes the United Nations Assembly session In Korea, beginning Monday, should not consider any move to admit Communist China because the agenda is supposed to be limited strictly to Korean problems. 3. State Department employees who voted for Adlal Stevenson and the Democratic ticket in the lust election are not disqualified from participation in the making of American foreign policy under President Eisenhower. 4. He knows of no plan or proposal for a mutual security treaty between the United States and Nationalist China.

Mass. (VP) — Four Navy men were killed today when their p 1 n n e crashed and burned while taking off on a routine training Ilight. Helicopters now can fly twice as fast, six times as far. and can carry 15 times more payload than they couM ten years ago. Vew Korean asualty List Announced WASHINGTON M—The Defnnse Dopart.mont. today announced n new total of M2.2f)4 U. S. battle cnsunltics in u-hnt may he thp next Lo last weekly summary of the Korean War. The new total was 589 higher than" last week's. It reflected the start of the prisoner exchange by listing 35 fewer current mlsslnt* nnd 166 fewer known prisoners. Today's summary did not reflect the Communist report that 1,169 Americans died In captivity or escaped from Red pri.ion camps. The military services continued to view with suspicion the lists of dead furnished by the Communists. Therefore the men identified by the Reds as hnvinp died will continue to be listed as missing in nc- tion until all efforts to determine their fate have been made. The Defense Department's weekly summary based nn notifications to families through last Friday showed: Inc New Total Killed in action 78 22.706 Wounded 500 lOS.ian Missing 11 13.UOB the Courts CIRCUIT: (Criminal divisioni st.alp of Arkansas vs. .lack Freeman, involuntary manslaughter.

Each released POW said the Chinese knew too much about their plans and where they had hidden supplies for the discoveries to be accidental. Each said he was either thrown In Jail on reduced rations, beaten or made to stand motionless in the freezing North Korean winter cold after he was caught. Others told of "spy rings", that worked against them. They said names of informers will be turned over to Army authorities. The men said they would testify against them If the Army held courts martial. Others threatened to get even In their own way. Repatriate after repatriate vowed in interviews to newsmen they would get revenge against "the rats and squealers." Pfc. John Powazi of New York City, said an informer was responsible for his being caught in an attempted escape. "Seven of us," he related, "tried ;o get out but our supplies were found nnd we were stopped just before We were ready to go. An informer, one of the progressive rats, turned us in." "I had hidden bread, sugar, matches and tobacco in the fire 5lace and under the paper of the ceiling," PowazI continued. 'Guards came in and went right straight to the places Where the stuff was hidden and ripped all of t out." "They gave us a trial—five of us—and put two wen in Jail. They asked me to write a promise I would not escape again. "They did not put me In jail. They took me to a room and sat me across a table from a Chinese officer. He took out his .38 revolver and took all the bullets out of it except one. Then he looked at me across the table, put the • gun under the table and pulled the trigger. Peipinf Propoganda "I did not say anything," Powazi went on. "I was sitting it out. He pulled the trigger again and then I said I would sign." Pfc. Laurence A. Rix of Dowagiac, Mich., said he tried to escape aut was caught because an informer found out his plans and relayed them to the Chinese. "I know the man who turned me in," he said. Asked whether he ntended to turn the name over to the Army, Rix replied: "I would ust as soon handle it my way." Peiping radio, meanwhile, con- inued broadcasting what it called Wednesday "a ghastly picture of American brutality" in U. N. Com- n.lnd prison camps. The broadcast said a group of Korean women repatriates re- urned Aug. 0 was attacked by Americans "with gas grenades wice and threatened with gas attack on five occasions," from July 27 to Aug. 8. Rep. Gathings Protests Cotton Acreage Plan LITTLE BOCK (P)— Rep. E. C. Gathings of West Memphis said here today the tentative national cotton acreage allotment of approx- Icately 18 million acres will create "havoc" in Arkansas' economy. He said the United States Department of Agriculture's 17.5-18.5 mil- lio nacreage allotment would force a 33 per cent reduction In the state's cotton production. j Gathings called for a special session of Congress to increase the allotment. "If we don't." he said, "it | will create havoc in Arkansas' eco- i nomy." i The Arkansas, congressman also ' urged a congressional measure to provide for transfers of acreage quotas among farmers In the same county. This would mean, he said, that a grower could use unplanted cotton acreage of other farmers. Gainings said he thought, a special session of Congress would have to be called by October to boost the 275 billion dollar national debt limit. WORLD'S LARGEST SELLER AT IOC St. Joseph .''". ASPIRIN SAVE MORE-BlinOO TABLETS.49C FRANCE fContinued from Page n of unexpected Business. France's countries got ready for a bonanza tourist industry faced huge losses. Laniel remained grim but calm, to all outward apearances. Showing: no signs of weakening, he planned ft broadcast appeal to the nation tonight. His aides talked themselves hoarse, trying to convince union leaders their fears of the proposed government decrees were unfounded. To all indications the unionists were unconvmncd, and the strikes were expected to spread- Troops Called The government called on troops to man trucks and buses to help with the transportation crisis, and some troops also worked on the piled-up mails. All of them made little headway against the confusion. The strike wave began last week when non-Communist postal, telephone and telegraph employes quit, saying they would stay out until Lnniel abandoned his then only rumored retrenchment plans. The Socialist FO, backed by the Communist-controlled COT (Gen- : eral Confederation of Lnbori nnrl the Christian Trades Federation brought the striking total to two million with a 24 to 48-hour walk- COUNCIL (Continued from Page u area, outside the city limits even If it had the money. Ha quoted County Judge Phillip Dsfr as saying the county didn't have the money, either. The council neither nccepted nor rejected the proposal, but tabled it instead. Received July 27, the proposal Is good only for 60 days and in view of opposition to the free right-of-way policy of the Highway Commission, it seems doubtful that the proposal will be accepted before its expiration. Alderman Jesse White and John Caudill reported that work getting Mathias Street extended across a Frisco crossing near the Negro schools was nearly finished. They said it the city would buy a 45-foot right-of-way across land owned by Mrs. E. E. Hardin of Blytheville, the street can be extended. The city can obtain possession about Jan. 1, they said. Extension of the street will provide a safe crossing for Negro students who for years have nego- gotiated the railroad tracks by crawling under freight cars. The Council voted to buy the right-of-way for $1,000 and to request the Frisco to construct a crossing. Renewal of the franchise of Blytheville Coach lines for five more years came up for consideration last night but action was delayed pending a meeting of aldermen with the owners, T. J. and Utho Barnes. Fourth ward Alderman Charles Lipford said he felt extension of out last Friday and Saturday. The Red COT called this week's outbreak, tacking on demands for general salary increases and the ouster of what it termed Laniel's "reactionary" Cabinet. Non-Communist unions were quick ;o support the strike calls Both Communists and Socialists urged the recall of Parliament, now vacationing until October. That is a long procedure, calling for signed letters from 209 deputies, one third of the National Assembly. To further add ' to Laniel's harassment, the wine growers of southern France announced plans for their third widespread barricading of highways in their section —for 12 hours on Friday. Demanding that the government buy their huge surplus of wine, they have already blockaded traffic in the region twice, for four hours two weeks ago and for six last week.
