BARNARD PANMUNJOM (AP) — The U. N. Command said toda;, South Korean civilians stoned tauting Communist war prison ers moving north for repatriation yesterday, injuring 314 Reds and nine American guards. The outbreak of violence near Inchon brought n o immediate echoes at this dusty village where 400 mors Allied prisoners were freed from Communist camps today. prison within three days. The U. N. Command Friday told the Reds to say definitely whether they plan to withhold any Allied prisoners. The U. N. has made no mention of a Communist' protest. Saturday's group of 60 Americans was the smallest returned so far by the Reds. Fifty British and 300 South Koreans also were repatriated Saturday. Sunday's group the, Beds said, will include 15 Americans, 75 British, and 262 South Koreans. The ROKs freed Saturday stripped off their clothes as parting defiant gestures at their Red captors. Pour American Marines cans back to the Dnited States I had to grab one South Korean who gained momentum. One transport | spotted a Chinese at the exchange Fifty Americans, all of them apparently hale and hearty, were among the group freed on this, the llth day of the great prisoner exchange. Nine others prisoners liberated earlier—eight of them seriously ill or disabled—were due at Travis Air Force Base near San Francisco today after a flight across the Pacific. Meanwhile,, the airlift of Ameri- carrying nine soldiers, eight of them seriously 111 or disabled, landed Saturday morning at Travis Air Force base near San Francisco. Another plane, with four ailing American soldiers aboard left Tokyo for the hop across the Pacific. The U. N. Command said some 3,600 Red prisoners, flaunting banners and chanting Communist songs, hurled boots and metal canteens at South Korean bystanders as they were being trucked to a rail station from Inchon Harbor. The South Koreans responded with rocks. The U. N. POW Command said 314 Reds were slightly injured. Nine American guards also were. : hurt, two seriously. Neu- Atrocity Stories Saturday's liberated Americans added to the stories of horrors in Reel "POW stockades. AiSi Commu-1 nist Peiping radio continued .the war of words over the withholding of some prisoners. Peiping said the Reds had protested to the armistice repatration commission against what it called "the forcible retention of a number" of Communist prisoners due for repatriation. The broadcast accused the U.N. Command of "brutal treatment and murder of Korean and Chinese POWs." The broadcast said the protests were lodged Friday and that an explicit answer" wa.s demanded ! point, and tried to kick the Red. Seven Sentenced Armistice Day Three American prisoners told newsmen at Freedom Village the Communists are forcing: captives to give false stories to U. N. Bed Cross teams in North Korea. The three said that Friday night at Kaesong, gathering point for Allied prisoners just north of Pan- munjom, Chinese guards threatened not to repatriate them unless they told Red Cross workers they had received good treatment in captivity. The three said they did not follow the orders. Pfc. William Blackburn of Monroe, Wash., said British repatriates "did all the talking." But the freed prisoners opened up when they reached Freedom Village, relating steadily their stories of life In bleak North Korean camps. And again, the returned captives told of buddies thrown into Bed jails on "trumped up" Communist charges. They said these men were handed sentences ranging from few months to three years. Pfc. George Pennington of Augusta, Ga., said the Beds In his camp announced prison sentences for seven men "the same day the armistice was signed. The repatriates turned bitter as they spoke of fellow captives who See REDS Pije 8 Delegates gathered at n. S. mission headquarters for their third private huddle on the issue only a few hours after the British government declared it was not committed to a renewal of the Korean War if the armistice were broken by any nation on the TJ. N. side. The declaration apparently was aimed at South Korean President Syngman Rhee, who told a mammoth rally in Seoul today that "it is our wish and determination to march north at the earliest possible time" to achieve unification of divided Korea. The British-American rift over the makeup of the political conference followed Britain's nomination of both Russia and India. The London government has maintained that if the world wants a real settlement Russia must be represented and it put forward India as a symbol of non-Communist Asia. The United States has insisted :hat only countries which fought for the U. N. have the right to represent the international organization at the parley. It maintains his is the clear meaning of the armistice agreement.

Signing of this agreement marks the first of the major steps that must be taken before financing of a new sewer system of any type or cost can be accomplished The agreement was signed yesterday by R. P. Lindsey of the bond firm and Alderman Rupert Crafton. John Caudill, Charles Lipford and L. G. Nash, members of a committee ap- tion to the voters.

Preliminary returns announced by the Agriculture Department today showed 361,382 growers voted for marketing quotas on the 1954 wheat crop. Only 53,252 opposed. The restrictions will cut production and sales about 20 per cent from this year's 10 per cent above normal crop. 7he returns showed a favorable voU=. of 87.2 per cent—far above ,,,«V?,. 2 "'. Per cent required and atf Mg-gfcst proportion ever piled up in a wheat quota referendum. The Agriculture Department said it expects little change from that percentage when the final official tabulation is made. The main issue in the nation-' wide balloting was next year's price resulting from approval or ejection of quotas could have been close to $1 a bushel, or perhaps one billion dollars on the whole crop. Dan Blodgett to work on sewer financing arrangements. To be in effect nine months with extension at the option of the bond firm, the contract simply retains Womeldcrff and Lindsey to act as the city's agent in legal matters pertaining to sewer financing. It does not involve bidding on or sale of bonds. In fact, one clause specifically states that the firm "will not be permitted to submit a bid for the sewer revenue bonds." For the services — should the bonds be issued — the firm will receive one and one-fourth per cent of the amount floated. (If $1.300.000 in bonds were issued, for instance, this fee would be S1G.250.) If for some reason — such as defeat in an election — the bonds are not issued, the firm will receive nothing. A member of the City Council's committee said this agreement could be construed as indicating an election will be called in order to submit the proposi- Top Figure Chosen The Sl.300,000 figure would finance a citywid sewer system, as recommended by Black and Vetch, Kansas City engineering firm, nearly three years ago. Recently, alternative plans involving lower costs -and smaller systems have been suggested. However, the Council felt it should work on the top figure since a smaller one could be used if an alternative plan were finally decided on. While authority to issue the maximum amount will be sought, only bonds in the amount actually needed would be issued. First action Womeldorff and Lindsey will take will be to confer with a firm of bond attorneys to draw up a bond ordinance. The firm also will meet with Black and Veatch to determine the rates to be charged users and the method of collecting these rates. A proposed ordinance including the rates will then be submitted to the City Council. A public hear- ing on the proposed rates will follow and then the Council will act on the ordinance. Bidding: to Be Op«a City officials pointed out that this agreement does not constitute a "negotiated deal" and that bidding on the actual bonds will b» open to all bond firms except Womeldorff and Lindsey. This is the second time the city has entered into such an agreement in connection with the sewer problem. The first was negotiated with C. O. Miles, bond consultant of Chicago, back when the issue also involved purchase of the water company. This proposition was defeated heavily in a special election, however. According to the contract signed yesterday, Womeldorff and Lindsey will, if the proposal is put to a vote, "assist in preparing necessary educational data prior to said election." The bond firm also will bear the expense of issuing a prospectus to potential bond buyers, in- sorting advertising in bond journals and printing bond forms. It also will pay the fee of the bank or trust company authenticating the bonds and the bond attorney's fee. 8-Months-Old Twins Killed As Fire Razes Wilson Home Barbara Ann and Bobby Joe Stout, eight-month-old twins of Mr. and Mrs. R.

"The three other 'stout' children, Larry, Curtis, and Donald, who were in the house were brought to safety by iheir uncle, Jim Stout, who was staying with them. There was no hope of reaching the twins as the fire started in the loft above the back bed room where they were Big Biow Nay Storm Center A/lay Strike Formosa Carnival Hand Fined for Lie Charles Brown, operator of cafe for the Southern Valley Shows was charged In Municipal Court at Oj- ceola this morning with obstructing justice In connection with the capture of R.

Mr. Hyatt said Brown had given a false alibi for Keller, which delayed his capture and almost allowed his escape.

By a margin of 107 to three, Mississippi County farmers approved the government proposal to put the 1954 wheat crop under marketing quotas. Farm law requires the government to support crop prices at 90 per cent of parity—about S2.20 a bushel in the case of wheat—if farmers approve quotas in times of surpluses, and at only 50 per cent of parity—about S1.22 for wheat— if they reject controls. This year's support rate is 52.21. Parity is a price legally declared to be fair to farmers in relation to what they must buy. Inasmuch as market prices usually reflect support levels, rejected quotas could have meant a sharp drop in farm income in major NAHA, Okinawa t^R — Tropical winds shrieked over this key American military tonight in an ominous warning of an approaching typhoon, but the island may osc.ape the full fury of the big blow.

The storm's center, carrying 160 mile winds, may strike Formosa, weather observers s;aid. Winds of up to 75 miles an hour lashed Okinawa tonight and were expected to increase to 100-140 miles by morning. But the island was rendy. In last minute preparations, farmers gathered crops and strung ropes over roofs. Americans were housed i concrete shelters. The big storm was last charted 1157 miles from Okinawa, moving northwest at 15 miles an hour. Lt. Jim Wolff of the Okinawa Air Base communications center said the typhoon veered slightly late Saturday and that if it remains on its present course the center would pass south of the island.
