They also told of costly blunders which might, make some of the air bases unsafe. Two investigators for a House subcommittee also looking into the air base program iejstified that MaJ. Gen.

Johnson It An fry Angrily turning to two Air Force liaison officers In the hearing room, Johnson told them: "I suggest you report in your superiors . ... 10 the chief of staff if necessary—thai I think the Air Force is justified In making some recommendations about closing down this project." He told the officers that if the Air Force Is "not going to back up their own major general, there ought to be an explanation." and that he wanted a reply from "their superiors by today, would ?et one. They said he CEASE-FIRE (Continued from Pa?e 1) armistice talks ngenda in secret. Nothing was 'announced until after the agenda was completed. There was no indication from Thursday's truce talk session that the prisoner stalemate might broken. Staff ftfficers wrangling over prisoner exchange made no'appar- ent headway toward breaking the repatriation deadlock. Questions Answered The Communists answered seven questions asked by the IT, N. command Monday. But Allied negotiators said the replies failed to show how the Reds' latest exchange plan could end the stalemate. Col. Andrew J. Kiraiey said it probably would take a day or two to iron out "mechanical details" on the ports of entry agreement. The biggest detail is fixing the exact area in which neutral inspection teams will operate.
