The P.eds did not indicate when it would be ready or it would be like. Tr u c e negotiators adjourned their full-dress meetings until the new plan is ready. Presumably it will come from Pyongyang or Pei- ping. Communists made two concessions Tuesday in another truce tent where staff officers are trying to work out machinery for supervising a truce. Reds offered to boost limits on monthly rotation of troops to 30,000 and establish four ports of entry for incoming troops and war materials to be inspected by neutral teams. The Allies said the figures are not high enough. They are asking a 40,000 rotation limit and eight entry ports. The previous Red proposals were 25,000 troops and three ports. Split on Two Issues Staff officers working on the third unsettled point of an armistice remained split on two issues and a number of "minor places and wording." said Col.
