* DBC. 4 ( Truman Adminstration To Make No Further Effort for Korea Peace •'"''' By"JOHN H. RIGHTOWER WASHINGTON *—The Truman .-administration apparently plan* to '-make no further policy moves to solve the Korea situation. The next • |tep, officials said today, will be up '•« to Pre*ident-elect Eisenhower.

Tht Truman administration Is •aid to feel no new policy moves , are advisable before Elsenhower's Inauguration seven weeks away, ' : ^Two reasons are advanced: 1. Any large undertaking could , hardly be completed be/ore Jan. , , ; M. thus, committing the new ad,> ^ministration to deal with a pro-.,'gram It.may not approve. . -; 2. The United Nations' fight In '"'Korea is an .Allied fight, requiring Allied co-operation in any -policy '_''development. Before agreeing to a ;' new project, it Is said, the U.

It Is expected, therefore, that the resolution will be rejected when officially forwarded to Peiplng. That will raise another big policy question: What steps should the U. N. then take? The United States government has discussed with other countries fighting In Korea the possibility ol imposing an economic boycott or naval blockade on Red China, Both proposals, highly controversial among the Allies, would commit the U. S. to long-range courses poslngr difficult problems for the new administration. What seems most likely to happen, officials said, Js that two or three weeks will be consumed in ra'nsmiltfng the Indian resolution o'.Red China and in getting a re ily. This, then, would do away with any need for follow up action unti after the U. N.
