EIGHT PAGES May Hold Special Election The Iola city commission was urged this morning to hold a special election soon to permit the citizens to vote on two propositions: First, a half mill levy with which to finance the promotion of new industries in Iola. Second, a 100,000 bond issue to meet the city's share of constructing new National Guard armory which will cost approximately 182,000.

For this project the state and national governments will, provide $40,000. Both of these proposals have been foneideied by the commission from time to time during the past two or three years but action has been delayed for a number of reasons. The last time they were carefully studied the commissioners believed that the town should recover more completely from the 1951 flood before attempting new projects. However, in recant days several cltixens have called on the commissioners arguing that further delay is not advisable. Last week the board of directors of the chamber of commerce voted unanimously to ask the city heads to hold an election this spring on the industrial levy.

The men who pvt In so many hours trying to pel suede' the National Engineering and Manufacturing Company: to move from Kansas City to Iola are convinced that a local industrial fund is 'essential if the town is to secure new plants. This morning John Sleeper and Prank Thompson met with Mayor Charles Wllaon and the other commissioners, A. R. Looker, and John McNaUy, urging that they call a election this spring at which the voters may vote for or against the industrial levy. If it is approved, the first proceeds, will be available In January, IBM.

Last night Major H. Page, representing the adjutant general of Narrow Escape for Yank Pilot Trapped by Team of Six MIGs WITH 5TH AIR FORCE, Korea U. S. Sabre jet pilot told Tuesday of a harrowing escape from six Red MIGS.which herded htm north towarif Manchuria. Cant.

Robert J. Anspach of South Charleston, W. said he and hls'wingman became separated in a recent dogfight ''Then I saw these six MIG, two on my tail firing away and two on each side. 'iThey seemed trying-' to herd me north," Anspach said: 1 every trlckj in the book to break through, bat they stuck with They took me to the deck (very low) over Sinuiju, fly- king as a team." West Virginian said that when the MIG his tail 1 exhausted their ammunition "they rl I reversed positions with the two flying on my left." Anspach was on his 73rd mission over North Korea. Anspach did not speculate on whether the Reds were trying to force him down across, the Yalu River into Manchuria but emphasized they apparently were trying to herd him north.

Anspach said that at 2,000 feet over Sinuiju Communist flak batteries opened up and the antl- aircraft fire seemed to bother the Red pilots. "I broke back through them and headed for the water," he said "As soon as I got out over the Yellow they broke off the attack." Ansnach streaked home on the last drops of fuel. The gauge read empty as lie landed.

Kansas, met with the mayor flc a i wcease 1 formally to outline the armory pro- posal and the factors that make an early decision on that question most desirable. i Three or four years ago the Congress voted several million dollars for the construction of armories, allocating a given amount Of funds to each state. Kansas accepted its share on a- matching fund basis, which arbitrarily set the amount available for any armory at $40,000. The municipality provides the remainder and the site.

There has been no of- Several towns have built armories under these terms and several more have approved the projects. Trie State now has funds with which to finance its share of only five more armories.

The plans for these buildings are uniform and require a site 350 feet square or about a city block. (In Iola a city block is not quite as large as desired but is satisfactory). The plot must furnished by the city on ground which has never been flooded. All Utilities must be available. When completed the building will be available for public use at low rentals.

One of the features is a good auditorium with excellent acoustics. J. D. Conderman, who is active in the local national guard, met with the commissioners this morning (Continaed an Page 8. No.

Act to End Filibuster WASHINGTON Ufi The Senate agreed Tuesday to bring the bitterly fought submerged oil lands bill to a vote at 1 p. m. (CST) Tuesday, May 5.

Capitol employees were already getting cots ready to put in Senate ante-chambers when Sen. Anderson (D-NM) quarterbacking the opposition to the bill, offered the agreement for a vote on May 5. It was the 20th day of debate on the measure. Taft promptly accepted Anderson's offer and the Senate, by unanimous consent, placed a time limit on debate on the bill and all amendments to it, effective Tuesday afternoon. Earlier Taft had announced that he would insist on continuous day and night sessions unless opponents of the bill agreed to a definite time for a final vote.

HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON Wl faint, fresh glimmer of hope that the Communists may actually be moving toward a truce in Korea has been found by officials here in the latest Red proposals for dealing with prisoners of war. This feeling was not substantially changed by the U. N. threat to- suspend the talks once again unless the Communists produce a constructive solution. In the latest Red proposals, presented to the U.

N. Command Monday, the Communists appeared for the first time to recognize officially that some prisoners held by the U. N. may never be willing to go home to Red China or Korea. If this interpretation is correct, and if the Reds are willing to act on it, no matter how warily, in further negotiations, it may be a key to the future of the truce talks.

In any event it was regarded here Tuesday as good reason for going on with the meetings despite wide differences. References to the existence, or possible existence oi PCW in U. N. hands who will never voluntarily accept repatriation, appear at least by implication in two sections of the Red proposals. In one it is suggested that after prisoners who initially refuse re-' patriation have been turned over to a neutral state all those "who request repatriation" shall be sent home within a period of.

six months. This implies that the Reds recognize some prisoners will not repatriation. Asiain, the Red proposals say that if after the six months period "there are still prisoners of war in the custody of the neutral state," their fate should be decided at a proposed political conference on the future of Korea. Laud Step To Tempt Red Fliers WASHINGTON The a i force-has fired its first "silver bullets" in an effort to get what gunfire hasn't bagged in live' Communist pilot with a flyable MIG-15 or other modern Soviet warplane. In offering rewards to Red pilots who land their plans on Allied airfields, the U.

N. Command has come up with a jet age version of an accepted tactic In the gaudy era of Chinese warlords. The announced price scale for the first man and aircraft is $100,000 and for each subsequent pilot and plane, half as much. Any rewards will be paid out of an air force contingent fund. Senators generally applauded the plan, although fear was expressed that the psychological warfare move might backfire.

Chairman Saltonstall (R-Mass-, of the Senate Armed Services Committee said in an interview he regarded the offer as a bold' stroke. "Any step, however unusual and unprecedented, that leads in the direction of a satisfactory solution of the war in Korea is worthwhile and should be tried," he said. Sen. Morse (Ind-Ore) said the offer furnishes "another example of taking the initiative in demonstrating to the people behind the Iron Curtain that the Western nations are seeking only peace and to bring the war. in Korea to an end without bloodshed." But Sen.

Sparkman a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he wonders if the psychological warfare move might boomerang if no Communist pilot' takes up the offer. "What happens then, do we lose face and is Communist morale boosted?" he asked. No one here knows how the Russians figure the cost of a MIG-15, but its nearest U. S. counterpart the F-86.

runs to about $230,000. And the cost of training an American pilot is nearly $60,000. The idea of tempting the Reds with money has been a high level air force proposal for some time. Despite the hundreds of MIGs shot down by Allied airmen over Korea, not a single undamaged, airworthy Russian jet has been Moavered there. The Red pilots fight and crash weU on their side, battle front.

A Polish aviator flew a MIG to Denmark last month and was given asylum. His picture is used on the leaflets' bearing the air force offer. Will Be No 'Bust' If Peace Comes WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of Commerce Sinclair Weeks said today there will be "no sudden nosedive in defense production." And there is hp reason to fear a business bust when and if peace comes, he said. "Stock market fluctuations, of course." Weeks told the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

"Adjustments during transitions following later reductions in defense spending, sure. Some downturns in business activity in specific lines after stimulation ends, yes. "But no old-fashioned depression. "The administration would not sit twirling its thumbs if at some far-off date it should be confronted by a sizeable economic emergency."

Wheat Makes Good Progress in East TOPEKA (A The 1953 wheat crop made good progress in Eastern Kansas last week but development was poor in most other areas, the federal and state Departments of Agriculture said Tuesday. Moisture is generally ample in the eastern third of the state, the agencies said, while additional moisture is needed immediately in- Western Kansas. The departments said fields are turning brown in a few southwestern areas where moisture is almost totally lacking. Recent freezing temperatures have caused "tip burn" on small grains in widespread areas but the cold weather is expected to be limited to early fields in a few localities.

Rye is expected to suffer the greatest damage. A light first cutting of alfalfa in affected areas also is anticipated as a result of the freeze. The departments said farmers are making good progress in preparing fields for corn seeding operations with about 11 per cent of the planting already completed: The outlook for spring pastures said, especially in western areas of the state. Many pastures have shown no greening to date. Crowd at Emporia For Hereford Sale EMPORIA Nearly 500 bidders -and' spectators were on.

Warn Reds To Quit Truce Stall PANMUNJOM N. negotiators today threatened to break off the renewed Korean armistice talks unless the Communists come up soon with a concrete proposal for exchanging prisoners last big obstacle to a truce. Lt.

Gen. William K. Harrison said the U. N. Command "does not intend to become Involved in protracted and useless arguments." And he warned the Reds that they "should be weU aware that we mean what we Official sources in Washington, however, were said to see a glimmer of hope that the Reds may be moving toward a truce despite Tuesday's U.

N. threat to suspend the negotiations again. The session at Panmunjom was the third since the negotiations were revived Sunday in an effort to decide what to do with prisoners who refuse to go home. The Allies asked the- Reds to name a neutral state which would assume custody of prisoners unwilling to return to Communist rule but received no definite answer. The Communists have indicated they might name Red run Poland or Czechoslovakia, neither of which would be acceptable to the U.

N. Command. The Communists rejected Switzerland. The full, five member delegations, met for 38 minutes and (8 p. m.Tuesday, CST).

They were hung up on three main points: 1. The neutral state to 1 handle balky prisoners. 2. The length of time after an armistice, necessary for disposal of prisoners. 3.

Whether prisoners will be shipped to the neutral.state or be held in Korea while their fate is decided. 35 Yanks On Way Home TOKYO (AV -L Thirty-five American soldiers, freed from Communist prison camps in Korea last week, boarded a big hospital plane here today and headed eastward across the Pacific toward home. The plane will land in Honolulu, across the International Dateline, Tuesday afternoon, Hawaiian time. After resting about 24 hours the men will leave for California on the last leg of their homeward flight. No definite schedule was announced.

But the plane probably will land at Travis Air Force Base, 40 miles northeast of San Francisco, early Thursday. The lucky 35 picked for the first homeward bound plane were moved shortly after noon from two Tokyo army hospitals to Haneda Airport where the big transport was waiting. Some were litter cases. The army refused to let newsmen talk with the former prisoners at the airport. Another 114 Americans freed last week at Panmunjom still are under treatment -at army hospitals in Japan.

There has been no announcement when a second plane would leave for the U. S. Among those on Tuesday's plane was Pvt. Robert L. Dunn, USMC, Muskogee, Okla.

Red Pact Plan 'Unnecessary' WASHINGTON (fl The U. S. said Tuesday that a Soviet-proposed five power peace' pact is suggested that discussion of peace settlements not "degenerate into a mere propaganda battle." Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov told Communist sponsored peace partisans in a statement published Monday that Russia favored their appeal for a peace agreement among Russia, the U.

6., Britain, France and Red China. State Department Press Officer Michael McDermott told newsmen that this sort of pact "appears to be unnecessary in view of the charter of the U. N. which is a peace instrument binding on all signatories, most of the nations of the Labelling the Five Power pact idea as a familiar piece of Soviet propaganda, he said the State Department is still waiting for the Soviet government to act for peace instead of just talking about it.

Admits Stealing U.S. Secrets WASHINGTON Thad Mason, a self-identified tormer Communist spy testified Tuesday that he stole secret U.

S. plans for a military diesel engine during World War n. The witness who is from Wallington, N. said the thefts were from a General Motors plant in Cleveland, Ohio, and not from a Detroit plant of General Motors as reported previously by the Senate internal security subcommittee before which he testified. Mason said he stole the plans one by one from files of the inspection division, and smuggled them to fellow spies who worked as a cook and "second assistant dishwasher" in the plant's calfn teria.

The- plans then were photographed in a secret hideout in the basement of the cafeteria, he.said. Mason 1 said he also stole from a DuPont Chemical Plant in Cleveland the formula for a preparation for the prevention and cure of diseases among livestock. He said he did it under orders from the Communist underground in 1943, and that "the comrade in charge said it would be of great use'to our comrades in Russia." Mason related he had an "unhappy experience" as the leader of a prep school strike in Cleveland. As a result, he said, the school authorities refused to recommend him for a job when he finally was graduated from Ohio University; 'Embittered, he said, he looked upon himself as "the man behind the eight ball" and joined the Communist Party in 1936.
