It took that long for a crew with digging equipment lo arrive from nearby UmatiHa where McNary dam Is under construction. As hundreds watched under the' glare of searchlights, John Morton of the McNary Dam contractors took charge of the rescue. He had a 24- Inch Iron pipe forced down around the trapped man.

Postoffice Lines Getting Longer As far as business Ls concerned, Christmas i.s already here for Postoffice workers and the lines ol package-toting patrons are getting longer every day. Contemplating the Inevitable last-minute rush, Postoftice officials loday reminded Blylheville residents that the longer they wait to mail gifts and cards, the longer a wait in line they will have and the greater the chance of delayed delivery. Christmas cards going to other states should be mailed by this Saturday, they said, and locally- addrc«ea cards should be In the mail at least a week before the holiday. Packages? They should be In llic mail new. Once-a-tiay mall delivery and shortage of train .space due to the defense effort create the need for early mailing.

(>p> _ The United Nations command today demanded an answer tomorrow from the Communists on the Allied TWELVE PAGES iropoxal to slarl immediate nego- .iations for exchange of prisoners of »'«r in Korea. There was no indi- lation what the Red reply will be. The Reds have stood pat on their demand that the tJ.N. answer their proposal lor bchind-lhe-tines In- ;peclion by representatives of neu- .ral nations before discussing prisoners. U.N. negotiators said the matter ilill Is under study. From Tokyo, the United Nations radio Monday night lambasted Ihe . accused the Hcd.s of holding U.N. prisoners for blackmail ami ransom to win their point on the question of policing an armistice. The Allies in effect told the Communists at Panmunjom Monday to quit stalling on the prisoner issue. Officer to Seek Answer They told the Reds that an Allied liaison officer will be in Pan- munjom at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday 19:30 p.m. Blytheville time Monday; for their answer. And a one-man U.N. subcommittee will be ready to start negotiations for the exchange of prisoners 2ii hours later. Joint subcommittees working on arrangements for enforcing a truce met only 41 minutes Monday. They quit as far apart as ever but scheduled another session for 11 am Tuesday (8 p.m. Blytheville time Monday). Excerpts from the U.N. radio broadcast were distributed to correspondents in Tokyo by Gen. Ridgway's headquarters in a bulletin labeled "not an official release." "Reds Hold Hostages" The broadcast declared that the Communists "have made hostages of all U.N. prisoners still alive in Red camps" by their apparent refusal to talk about exchanging prisoners .unless;, the; U.N. gives hi to their .demand's for policing the truce. ; <; "This which is Communist blackmail, a thousand times more repulsive than the ordinary act ol kidnaping by the lowest form of gangster, should not come as a complete surprise to the free world " „:. ..f, tructure will be L-shaped " 1C broadcast continued.
