f THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1956 BLVTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PACE NTNB British Ready Korean Post-War Plan General Assembly 4 To Hear Proposal Tomorrow BULLETIN- NEW YORK, Sept. 28. W'i — American sources today outlined a six-point peace formula for Korea calling for a unified country /i^* be put hack on Us feet by tbe •Combined resources of the United 'Nations. My STAM.EV \IOHNSON NEW YORK, Sept. 23. (/Pi—British delegates rushed work today on a four-point plan for post-war Korea which they hoped to present to the United Nations General Assembly tomorrow. They are holding almost continuous conferences with other delegations to work out details and es pecially with Asian countries. The Asians would be called on, under the British proposal, to make up the greater part of a U. N. com mission to supervise postwar Korea. , A .source close to the Indian delegation said his country viewed the plan sympathetically and migkU I even become a co-sponsor. The plan, which still Is subject to modification, envisages suv independent, united Korea with a democratic government elected under U. M. .supervision. The U. N. would continue to furnish assistance to prevent an armed attack and woutd set up the supervising commission. American officials, reportedly in favor of the British recommendations, are expected to make positive contributions to the plan during talks today. ,^ Hot Asian Problem Seen 4j|ftnothcr hot Asian problem comes up in the Security Council this afternoon (3 ' p.m. EST) when that body is expected to reach a vote on Inviting Communist China to present in person her charges of American aggression on Formosa. The council has two resolutions to- this effect as the first order of business. They are a Soviet, proposition tor an immediate invitation and one from Ecuador which would Invite Red China provided debate on the Formosa question is put off until Dec. 1. Ecuador's plea for delay is based on presence of the Formosa problem on the General Assembly agenda. Ecuador feels the council might benefit from the assembly's Investigations. Since Ecuador would make the seventh vote needed to invite the Pciping government, she is in a strong position to bargain for the delay, she already has announced that she will not vole in favor of the Immediate invitation proposed by RiLssia.

President Truman took the action yesterday shortly after sinning a bill giving him authority to do so. The? new law also places the Coast Guard within the selective service system — that Is. it permits the Coast Guard to call for men In the draft, it it does not get enough volunteers. Other military manpower developments : The President signed n bill to per- post-war Korean plan to the As- senxbly yesterday ~ which contained many of the British Ideas. The two proposals are expected to be combined before they reach the As- e.smbly as a formal resolution. Pearson called for a free, Uniteti Korea^ with U.N, assistance anc military support for the \mitec country. He urged U.N. assurance to the people of Korea that no na- tton will try to put bases there for military domination of the country and said Korea's future should be planned in such a way that the peninsula's neighbors— Communi.s China and Russia — would find nothing to menace them. Asian Advice Sought The Canadian also suggested that the free governments of Asia take the major responsibility for advts- in g the Kor e a n peopl B in the f u - tiurc. None of tbe proposal, 1 ; yet contain a definite statement that U.N. forces will cross the 38th parallel and occupy the entire country. ^Jtieir substance, though, calling for a united Korea, apparently takes such a country-wide occupation for granted.
