"The Americans cannot sent the Korean people," Korean Col. Chang Chun San re- toned angrily. Brig, Gen. William P.

Command to be known in Korea as "Allied Forces." The U.N. prefers "International Allied Forces.". One of these is about as close as you can come in Korean to United Nations. Today's arguments was in a session on supervising the truce. Nuckols said both Allied and Communist staff officers working on prisoner exchange made "extensive statements which are apparently well-considered views." Comment Declined He declined to comment "on what the views are and the extent of their divergency, if any." "We further explored the Communist proposal of March 21 with ramifications and we still have not, come to any agreement," said Col. George W. Hicknmn. Nuckols said the three secret sessions on prisoner exchange have "produced some clarification." He £id not elaborate.

The Missouri PSC sid it approvcc only .slightly more than two-thirds of (he requested increase because tlie reduced amount ".should enabl' (he company to pay Its operating expenses, meet its fixed charges and earn an amount on its common .slock sufficient to enable it to attract necer.snr.v capital." Ark-Mo disagreed with this In n statement today. Avk-Mo had a.skod the increase to offset increased operating costs. The utility cited higher costs of equipment, ' materials and labor. A rcriucst for increased rates in Arkansas is on file with the PSC in this state, but no action has been taken yet. The Missouri PSC said Ark-Mo's rate of return on its investment nn- [ rier the new rate increase would be 23 pei- cent. Under the present rate-j, the return is 5.11 per cent, Ihe decision said. If the requested rates had been approved, t,\e return would have been C.94 per cent. which the PSC adjudged too high. Take Effect April 5 The new rates will take effect April 5. In a .statement on the Missouri PSC'.s action, Ark-Mo President Cnhrlcs Czeschin said: "The amount of the increase granted by the commission is not in our opinion, sufficient to provide the allowable rate return on the money invested in our business, li is of, course, the commission's prerogative to regulate our business ami \ve will continue our efforts to operate in the most efficient manner possible withi:: *he amount o revenue available. •'The recent storm damage which necessitated the expend! turc of many thousands of dollar^ for line repair, is one of the man Wilson Drops Plan For Top-Level Talk About Steel Strike WASHINGTON (AP)— Defense Mobilixcr Charles E. Wilson dropped plans today for a top level parley of government officials concerned with the threat of a steel strike April 8. Instead, lie talked separately with [he various price and wage control executives and ruled out r\ny announcement today of what he may do next to head off a strike. Wilson has declared the recommendations of the wage stabilization hoard, proposing a 17>j-cent hourly pay increase anri oilier benefits for Hie CIO steelworkers are inflationary and too high.

Putnam. Then he had a lalk with Nat haii P. Fcinsingcr, WSB chairman who has upheld his board's recommendations as un!n- flationary and justified. Price stabilizer Ellis Arnall was listed for a later, separate- talk. "No Comment." Issued A spokesman for Wilson's office of Defense Mobili/alion refused to confirm or deny that lie plans to keep hands off the steel wage dispute for the present in hopes of progress in union-management negotiations which started yesterday in Pittsburgh, and resumed today. The situation was such that it even appeared possible that, with President Truman ciue back from his Florida vacation in late afternoon, someone in the mobilization hierarchy may quit soon. Bargaining talks between Murray's union nnd U. S. Steel Corp. ami Junes & LaugiiHn Steet began yesterday in Pittsburgh, but nothing was accomplished. Both sides looked to Washington for 'guidance. Task Is Two-Fold The administration's real task was two-fold: to answer the question's 1. whether Peinsingcr's WSB over-stepped iUelf in its suggested solution, nnd 2. assuming a wage boost, whether steel profits require any price boost to keep them in the black. Wilson's fenrs were based on possible effects to the economy generally. John L. Lewis Is waiting to see what Murray does In steel before trying to drive a new wage bargain for coal miners. Jn short, a new wage pattern is in the making, at least in Wilson's view. More Inflation Feared Back of that, if steel firms raise prices, n whole host of other Industries will be breaking down the doors for higher prices, too. • In other \vordi,_ Wilsons group fears price ceilings fixed prior to last sum program and has enlarged 'its S -17.000 Nhu— S 5.000 2.- no 4.CGO August, when the amendment, began to operate.
