MONDAY, SEPT. 14, 1953 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THRCB Korean Peace Conference May Be Dead Before It Starts By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP) — The torpedo just shot into preparations for the Korean peace conference may kill it before it starts.. It's too soon to say. But here is an abc on how it happened. For two years — summer of 1951*to summer of 1953 — the United Nations command and the Chinese and North Korean Communists tried to reach agreement on a truce. Big stumbling block was the question of prisoners of war. I The Communists wanted all prisoners returned, whether or not the prisoners wanted to go home. The United Nations said the prisoners should choose for themselves. In the end, the United Nations won. Meanwhile, the two sides had agreed on many other truce terms, called articles, which got far less public attention than the argument over war prisoners. Article No. 60 is causing the trouble now. It said: "In order to insure a peacefu settlement of the Korean question the military commanders of both sides hereby recommend to the governments of the countries con cerned that within Uwee months after an armistice is signed and becomes effective, a political con ference at a higher level of both sides be held by representatives appointed respectively to settle through negotiations the question of the withdrawal of all foreign forces from Korea, a peaceful settlement of 'the Korean t question, etc." Nowhere did article 60 say precisely what nations should take part in the peace conference. It merely said "representatives pointed respectively." That vagueness now is causing trouble, and this is what led up to it: Because of their part and stake in the war there never was any question that the Chinese and North Korean Communists and the tf South Koreans would all take part *in the conference, even though none of them is a member of the U.N. Problem Seemed Small Thus, it seemed the only problem might be for the U.N. to decide what nations among its 60 members should represent the U.N. at the peace conference which, under Article 60. should begin about the end of October. To choose its representatives, the U.N. General Assembly met in New York in special session in mid-August. One question floated around: Should the U.N. representatives be limited to those nations which sent fighting men to Korea? Or should' other U. N. nations, particularly those with a deep interest in Asia, like India, which sent an ambulance unit but no troops, or Russia, which actually supplied the Chinese and North Koreans, represent the U.N., too? Before the Assembly met, South Korea's President Syngman Rhee ' said he'd take no part in the peace ' conference if the U.N. chose India as one of its representatives. So the United States adopted this proposal: Only those nations which sent troops to Korea could sit in on the conference' for the U.N. This would exclude India. It would also exclude Russia. But the United States agreed Russia could take part provided the Chinese and North Koreans wanted her on the Reds' side. The United States got its way. The U.N. said only the nattons which sent troops to the U.N. command in Korea should represent the U.N. It said Russia could sit on the Communist side, if the Chinese and North Koreans wanted her. India was left out. Bitter Fruit , But the vagueness of Article 60 bore bitter fruit. For instance, a majority of the U.N. members, in spite of this country's opposition, voted to make India a representative. The only reason she didn't ity vote was not enough. She need' ed two-thirds and didn't get it. This didn't please the British, who argued the peace conference should be a "round table" affair, meaning: That not only the belligerents but other U.N. nations should sit in. Exploiting this U.S.-British split, Russia proposed that the U.N. should name a number of neutrals. But the General Assembly held to the United States' view. Tomorrow the General Assembly meets in regular session. The Chinese Reds sent word yesterday they want to reopen the whole question of who shall take part in the peace conference. It shouldn't be limited to belligerents, the Chinese said, but should be of the "round table" type to include neutrals. They demanded that Russia, India, Burma, Indonesia and Pakistan — all Asian ;et the seat was because a major- countries — be included. Umpire's Decision Causes Riot Among Reformatory Inmates HAGERSTOWN, MD. (/P) It WaS n't poor food or rough treatment by guards that sent more than 100 inmates on a riotous binge of destruction last night and today at the Maryland State Reformatory for Males. "It was an umpire's decision In a ball game," said the flabbergasted Supt. Henry R. Raymond. Sixty-three young prisoners, still seething over an afternoon an official's call in reformatory league baseball gaine. erupted into violence at bedtime. Before being sudbued by tear gas, fire hoses and Raymond's stern words, they wrecked furniture, shattered windows and smashed lighting fixtures in two recrea ;lon rooms of the western Marylanc institution. Early today a second flareup occurred when a group of 40 prisoners in a basement dormitory trlec barricade doors and staxtec Breaking lights- James W. Curran, assistant perintendent of Maryland prisons said the men had heard about the first riot and staged one of theh own when lights were turned on alJ over the prison after the first rioi was smashed. Authorities said about 40 guards were aided by 25 state troopers TWELVE SUGGESTED STEPS As A Program Of Recovery STEP SIX "We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character." Most of us know what our mistakes are, we know what we ought to do about them, and some day we intend to do what we should, but so often we are defeated by the simple device of waiting until tomorrow. To this writer the most disappointing play in baseball is seeing a batter let the third strike be called on him. He might fly out, hit a foul, ground out, hit into a double play, or he might get a hit. IF he swings at the ball. But to stand there with his bat on his shoulder and go out by doing nothing is to me the worst possible course. Yet I know people who go through life with their bats on their shoulders. They are going to do something, but they never get ready. So Step Six is AA's way of stating the best possible attitude one can take in order to make a beginning on this lifetime job. This does sot mean that we expect all our character defects to be lifted out of us. A few of them may be, but with most of them we shall have to be content with patient improvement. The key words, "entirely ready" underline the fact that we want to aim at the very Best we know or can learn. The only urgent thing is that we make a beginning and keep trying. To we alcoholics these "character defects," such as resentment, jealousy, self-pity, anger, fear, self- centeredness, dishonesty, etc., stand between us and contented sobriety. They perpetuate spiritual illness. Recovery from alcoholism is dependent upon their removal.

They said no force was used to queel the second disturbance. The riot-pvovoking decision came in the semi-final playoffs of the reformatory league, causing one team to stalk off the field midway through the game. Raymond said the umpire in the game was a member of the reformatory staff but added he still wasn't sure, what the controversial decision was about.
