The U.N. peace delegation would Include representatives of the 17 nations which contributed fighting forces to oppose the Communist invasion of South Korea. Western diplomats believe it Jikely the Communists will turn down all three conference sites and denounce the form of the conference as well as the absence of neutral India from the lineup. The Reds, It is believed, may propose New York as a conference place, a site which American diplomats flatly oppose because U.N. headquarters are located there. Secretary of state Dulles is reported to believe any peace conference in New York while a U.N. session Is in progress would give the Chinese Communists a tailor- made propaganda forum to plug for U. N. admission. The move to get set for the Korean peace parley came after Dulles gave notice the United States .would be .willing to talk about end- Ring the 8-year-old Indochina War against Communist rebels if ihe Korean conference shows the Reds are reasonable.

And there may be more Americans in the final day's exchange Sunday. The Reds have not given any figures for that delivery. Seven U.S. sergeants returning Friday estimated there were still uetween 450 and 500 Americans in Kaesong, the Red collection center 'or prisoners to be repatriated. The Communists also delivered i British and 200 South Koreans Friday and promised 25 British and 13 South Koreans Saturday. The Allies and Reds agreed Thursday to end the huge swap with Sunday's exchange. The Reds said that If any unforeseen difficulties arise, they would notify the Allied command Saturday.

He said the as sembly would vote to pay the damages. A representative of the Asian-Arab group, which sought a special personnel policy investigation Jnst year, said he did not foresee any great debate. British and Russian spokesmen declined comment. The Indian delegation had taken no stand. Wiley said that unless the tribunal decision is reversed by the assembly, "it would cause a further disastrous decline in the esteem which the American people hold for the United Nations." At the same time he cautioned against "any rash action against the United Nations." saying: "Some few persons have looscjv recommended that we get out of the United Nations. "That would be like recommending that we abolish a city police department because we didn't like couple of policemen, or because we don't like how it handled a particular case."

Wings range from 30 to 75 aircraft, depending on type. Douglas did not disclose what planes might be ordered in place of those dropped, but did say the Air Force has already ordered more of the new supersonic F100 fighters and that serious consideration is being given to developing n second manufacturing source for the B52 heavy bomber. Sen. Potter, from a state which holds a large share of defense contacts, said he thinks the Defense Department should spell out Ihe extent of the order cancellation and tell what plans it has to place these. Douglas said the Wichita, Kan plant of the Boeing Airplane C would be least affected by the cu back, but that the Douglas Ai craft Corp. plant at Tulsa, Okla and Lockheed Aircraft plant Marietta, Oa., would stand a larg er share, of the cancellations.

This was disclosed as the greatest transatlantic transfer of jet bombers ever attempted, involving two .medium bombardment wings of 45 B47s each, gdt under way. Wherever the big six-jet planes, capable of carrying the atom bomb nnd fitted with secret electronic devices, are used, they have orders to stay at least 300 miles from ihe Iron Curtain. That is less than half an hour's flight for them. One squadron of B41 of the 305th Wing flew from MacDill Air Force Base. Tampa, Fla.. to Limestone Air Force Base, Me., yesterday. Today the squadron took off for England at about the same time that a squadron of the 30(ith Wing. now in the United Kingdom, sets out to fly nonstop to Tampa. The transatlantic flight record was made this year when a B47 flew the 2.?S5 m'lcs from Limestone to FMrf^-ri in four hours, 45 minutes. A second 15-bomber contingent flies from Tampa to Limestone today, to effect' a similar exchange with a Tampa-bound squadron from England tomorrow. The third 30-plane shift will take place Saturday. The B47 leaving England have completed a three-month training period at Fairford, 90 miles west of London. The 305th Winf will go to another former Royal Air Force base— Brize Norton— about 10 miles northeast of Fairford, where runways are reported in better condition. The air force confirmed that bases suitable for B47 are available in North Africa and that if Britain's winter weather limits combat training too severely, units may operate temporarily down Morocco way.
