MONDAY, APRIL 19, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS South Korea Will Attend Geneva Talks Rhee Warns: 'This Is The Final Attempt' SEOUL (AP) — President Syngman Rhee announced today that South Korea will attend the Geneva conference opening next week. But he warned it is "a final time-consuming attempt" to unite Korea by peaceful means. He didn't say what his government would do if the conference fails. But there was a thinly veiled threat in his statement that "we obviously cannot continue to sit idly by while the Communists exterminate or exile our people to the North and make a Bed Chinese province out of half our country." The peppery 77-year-old President said "clear and encouraging" assurances from Liie United States "enable us to go to Geneva with confidence and considerable hope." Rhee didn't elaborate on the assurances. But in New York You Chang Yang, Korean ambassador to the United States, said his nation had been assured (1) the United States will aid in greatly increasing the Republic of Korea's army and (2) a prime objective of the conference will be to reunite all of Korea and eliminate all Red Chinese troops from that country. A highly placed Korean source said the assurances were contained hower delivered to* Rhee Sunday in a letter from President Eisen- by U. S. Ambassador Ellis O. Briggs. HOUSING" (Continued from Page 1) home repair and improvement program. Excessive Ixrans Cole asserted that high-pressure home-improvement salesmen had induced householders to obtain larger loans than they needed, provided shoddy work and short value and in some cases perpetrated outright fraud. Hollyday, saying he knew of such abuses when he took office, told the senators that he undertook first of all to determine their extent and found them "small in proportion to the scope of the Title 1 program." He decided the remedy was to "prevent them at the source," he said. Hollyday said he asked the vice- pvasidents of seven banks, all active in making home repair loans, to come to Washington to study the problem. That was last June; by September the committee recommended new regulations which were adopted, Hollyday said. The regulations went into effect Dec. 1. Hollyday said that not only wss he satisfied then that the regulations "would go a long way toward preventing improper pra- tices;" that they also were considered sufficient by President Eisenhower's Advisory Committee on Housing, which developed the administration housing legislation now before the committee. Nevertheless, Hollyday said, PHA continued to follow up complaints, even though PHA's investigative staff consisted of only three persons when he took office. "The position of FHA commissioner is the only public office I have ever held," Hollyday said. Declaring himself grateful for the opportunity to serve the government, he went on: "It is my earnest hope that this committee's hearings and studies will result in measures to strengthen FHA and make its usefulness even greater in the interest of our national housing policy."

And whether or not 62-year-old Mrs. Eva Bowring writes history as a states'woman in her alloted seven months, friends say she's a cinch to add a dash of Western color.

(Continued from Page 1) thorough working over. Both men have reputations as forceful campaigners even though McClellan hasn't been called to demonstrate his ability in his own behalf in the 13 years since he was first elected to the Senate. He didn't have opposition for Democratic renomination in 1948, the same year McMath was elected to the first of his two terms as governor. In temperament and political thought, the two men differ greatly — and perhaps that's one reason the contest between them promises to be bitter. McClellan is essentially of the conservative wing of the Democratic party. McMath is a thorough-going Fair Dealer who rated a futle endorsement for a third term as governor by former President Truman in 1952. With the governor's race at present an uncertain factor—so far Gov. Cherry is opposed for a second term only by Ous McMillan of Sheridan, a political unlmown— two other contest besides that for senator may result in fireworks. One is the race for attorney general where incumbent Tom Gentry is opposed for a second term by State Sen. James D. Johnson of Crossett. Both men are young, vigorous—and ambitious. Gentry announced yesterday for re-election. The other involves the Fourth Congressional District seat. Rep. Oren Harris of El Dorado is opposed by Prosecuting Attorney G. W. Lookadoo of Arkadelphia and Union Conuty Tax Assessor Robert Hollinger of Smackover. So far Harris is the only congressman who has drawn opposition. Perhaps the opposition didn't have anything to do with'it, but Harris and McClellan were the only members of the Arkansas congressional delegation to return to the state for the Easter holiday.

Pope Asks Ban Of A-Weapons VATICAN CITY (;?)—Pope Pius XII has called for an international agreement bamming the use of atomic and hydrogen bombs except in self defense. The head of the Roman Catholic Church, broadcasting his annual Easter message yesterday, appealed for outlawing of the "destructive arms of unprecedented violence." He said the new bombs and germ and chemical warfare have brought "the fear of a third world conflict and a dreadful future" to the people of the world. The world's rulers, the Pope said, should turn their new knowledge of atomic energy exclusively to the purposes of peace.
