BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOL. XLVII—NO. 2D2 Blylheville Courier Blytheville Daily News Mississippi Valley Leader Blytlieville Herald THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OP NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI UMT 'Dead' For Session Of Congress House Shelves Administration Bill Yesterday WASHINGTON <AP) — Bitterly debated universal military training appeared today to be n dead issue, for the next few months at least. The House yesterday shelved an ad tn in 1st rat ion bill to start UMT. It voted 23G-162 to send the measure back to committee, climaxing a dramatic and unusual session. 'No Mori-' Rep. Vinson (D-Ga) chairman of the Armed Services Committee, then killed off any immediate chance for reconsideration. He told newsmen his committee would not bring up any more OMT legislation during this session. Sen. McParlamI of Arizona, Democratic leader in (he Senate, said that In view of the House action tlie-Senate probablv would not consider UMT before' the end of th; 82nd Congress. Temporary proponents Say ) But proponents insisted that UMT was not permanently dead. "We'll start all over "again in the 83rd Congress, after the election," Vinson said. Chairman Russell (D-Ga) of the Senate Arraed Services Committee, another strong supporter, said in a statement that "it will be little short of a national tragedy" if the House action "means the death of UMT legislation." 'Soviet Happy' Donald R. Wilson, national commander of the American Legion, commented, "I can imagine a large number of people are happy io- • night and most of them are within the confines of the Soviet Union." House members did not actually vote on tlie merits of the bill to establish compulsory six months' training for 18-year-olds, plus 7!i years in the reserves.

Brownson suggested an alternate plan of requiring military service of all physically Jit high school students while they complete their last two years. This would be augmented by two summer encampments. Non-students would be required to complete equivalent training. The house first tentatively approved the Brownson proposal. 100145. on teller vote.

Officials said lliat is the present basic policy, but, how It would be applied will undoubtedly depend on the Communists do and what the American people think about it.

That remains our policy, it is up to the Communists. II they want to widen the conflict and engulf the world in a terrible world war, then they must be the ones to do it."

Three Reasons for Collapse Policymakers have envisioned three main circumstances of' collapse of i^he truce 'negotiations:''' • 1. The talks might simply break off with both sides holding lo their present military positions—that is, avoiding a major ground offensive. In this circumstance tbe administration's present policy is that the United States should not act to enlarge Hie war. 2. The talks might break off with Communist offensive aimed at driving the united Nations forces out of their present entrenched positions. Gen. Ridgway is reported to be confident that his position is so strong that he could .smash such nn offensive at terrific cost lo the enemy and might thereby start the Reds talking peace more earnestly.
