*AGE EIGHT BLYJTIEVILUB, (ARK.) COUHTER NEWS Laborites Seek Block Of Action on Proposal For European Army STRASBOURG, Aug. 16. W> — British Laborities battled toduy to block European Assembly action on Winston Churchill's proposal for a European army. Led by British parliament member James Callaghan, the Ijaborltes enlisted Scandinavian support in the assembly subcommittee on security, now debating Churchill's recommendation. Callaglran threatened to walk out of the subcommittee last night after it voted seven to six, with one abstention, to take action on the army proposal. The subcommittee's stormy three- hour session was marked by bitter clashes. Callaghan and representatives of Norway, Sweden and Iceland contended the European con- sulaiive assembly has no right to act on the proposal. Question Is Decided E. De La Valle Poussin, Belgian member of the subcommittee reminded Callaghan and the Scandinavians that the question already had been decided by the full 125- member assembly last Friday when it approved Churchill's motion by a vote of 89 to 57 abstentions. The whole dispute went today to the assembly's committee on general affairs, headed by former French Premier Georges Bidault. One informed assembly source said Bidault may demand appointment of a new subcommittee if the security group fails to speed up its action on the army proposal. Subcommittee Deadlocked The security subcommittee was deadlocked six to six on its first vote on the proposal. Chairman Leon Maccas of Greece then cast an affirmative ballot to break the dead- loci:. The subcommittee's vote was on a formal proposal by British Conservative Duncan Sandys, Churchill's son-in-law, to take immediate action on the proposal to create a European army and European defense ministry. Most assemblymen feel the group, Europe's s unofficial parliament, should appeal for action directly to Western Europe's individual governments rather than be content •with mere recommendations. Under present assembly statutes, such recommendations first must be forwarded to the committee of 12 foreign ministers, the council of Europe's upper house, where each minister has a veto. Alpinists Trek Downward with Youth's >Body LONE PINE, Calif.,' Aug. 10. (AP) —Liijby Holman Reynolds, who flew 7.000 miles from France hoping to find her missing son alive, waited today for a party of Alpinists to bring his body down from the heights of the nation's taltet mountain. The former torch singer arrived last night by chartered plane, leaning for support upon the arms of a nephew, Michael Kahn, '/ Media, Pa., and a friend, Harvey Poc, a British Oxford student. Oniy a few hours earlier, seven members of the Sierra Club enctod a six-day search when they reached the frozen tody of 17-year-o'id Christopher Smith Reynolds, heir to tobacco millions.

This can be chalked up 8S an error or a good tiling, dependin" on how you look nt it. If the South Koreans had been the aggressors It is doubtful if they would have got outside help. And they might have got a beating. What South Korean Will (Jet As for later military assistance to Korea. Congress didn't complete action on MAP—the military assistance program—until Sent. 28, 1940 Then it took three months to make an arms aid agreement with the Koreans nnd another three months to get It rained, on March 29, 1950 This was the first date on whlcli it was legally possibl to furnish new militar yald to Korea. Ten million dollars worth of arms aid was then authorized for Korea. Rut it appears that only $253.000 worth of .supplies wire delivered'be- fore A-clny, June 25. 1950. The main trcuble seems to have been that Korea was not given a hish priority by the Joint Chiefs of staff. The story of economic aid to Korea is another icartache of compounded delays, president Truman first asked Congress for $150,000000 for Korean aid on Jan. 7. 19-19 On Oct. 6—nin months later—Confess gave him $30.000,000. The following January, the House killed an additional $00000000 ao- propriation for Korean aid by a vote of 191-191. A month later the House reversed this action, but that still save the Koreans only 40 per cent of the assistance (he President, had originally asked for the period ending June 30. 1D50.
