THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1950 BLYTIIEVILLE (ARK.) COimiER NEWS Evidence Indicates Truman Is Against Peace Conference Bjr John M. Hijhlomr f WASHINGTON, Feb. 23. </P) — Evidence plied up today, that the Truman administration Is dead set gainst seeking an atomic peace onference with Russia at this time. President Truman himself , warning that the nation must. not be misled by Die vain lope of finding quick and easy so- ii'lons" for. the world's difficulties —of which tile atomic arms race is one ol the greatest,. Instead, the President declared in speech honoring George Wash- iiBton yesterday,that tr* United Slates and other democracies must stick to the "hard path" of build- ng , up the strength !bf the free world in Its struggle with Com- munisin. • Conference Denounced f'ht vice chairman of the Senate- House Atomic Energy Committee. Rep. Durham <D-NC), meanwhile directly attacked the idea of itomie conference with the Soviet Union. In a speech for the North Carolina Democratic Club here last nii;ht. he declared: N "The pressure which Is building up for a conference ot sonic sort with tlie Foviet Union, opinion, is dangerous; it would immediately place us In a position of despair and defeatism." Durham thus appeared to take a position in conflict with Senator McMahon (D-Conii),' the comrnli- tce chairman. McMnhon, has advocated that Die United States undertake: a $50,000.000.000 program of foreign aid, including benefits to Russia, an early for^ntrol ol atomic energy. as a bold effort to obtain international agreement or fjt iam specified that he was expressing a personal opinion. Nevertheless, what he said closely parallels the known opinion held by lop State Department officials and possibly Mr. Truman himself. This view is that'there is no prospect now that Russia and the western powers could agree on a system of armament controls and in- ternation inspection of atomic plants, Including H-bomb factories Mrri Would Fail They therefore are convinced that l conference would result In failure and that this might Increase the dangers of \var In the world by building up a sense of despair and hopelessness among people everywhere.

Both men were employes of Northrop Aircraft inc., builders of the plane, one of the new XF-89 Scorpions'. A company spokesman said the right hand engine area of the plane had been burning for several minutes before the crash. Some witnesses said the plane seemed to explode. The spokesman said that could not be immediately determined. The control system was burned through, he said, and the sudden twisting of the speeding plane may have caused it to disintegrate. Top speed of {lie crnft, a jet-powered version of the Black Widow- night fighter, is listed <it more than GOO miles an hour. The fiery debris ignited some 20,COO barrels of oil, a refinery spokesman snid, but the blaze was quickly brought under control. Smoke rose 5,000 feet into the air.
