COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVB Egypt Ex-Premier Of Arrested Nonas, His Wife, 12 Others Face Treason Trials CAIRO (AP) — President Mohammed Naguib's government arrested former Premier Mustafa Nahas, his wiife and 12 other onetime Egyptian bigwigs today. All 14 face trial before a special court created to deal with "traitors" to the revolutionary regime and corruption during the time of ex-King Farouk. No specific charges were an- unounced against any of the 14. It also was not known when they would appear before the court. The roundup came as the three- man special tribunal prepared to begin trials of alleged plotters. The court hearings were scheduled to open later today and'to remain in session throughout the three-year "transition period" — proclaimed last January — in which Egypt is operating under a provisional constitution. Political parties have been banned during that period. Those arrested today included leaders of two once powerful political parties, several close advisers of Parouk and other persons previously accused of ccuTtiption under the monarchy. Nahas, premier of the Wafdist government that governed Egypt from 1949 to 1952, his wife, and Hafez Affifi, former chief of Farouk's Royal Cabinet, were put under house arrest. The other 11 were taken into custody by military Included: police. They Ibrahim Abdel Hadi, a leader of the Saadist party and nremier during the 1948" Palestine War.

Arkansas Agri Income Behind '52 WASHINGTON (/P) — Arkansas farmers headed into the .last hal; of 1953 considerably^ behind lasi year in cash income from sale of crops and livestock. A report by the Agriculture Department shows that the state's farmers realized $137,477,000 from sale of crops and livestock the first six months of this year. This compares with $187,644,000 the first si months of 1952. The 53-million dollar drop was due both to lower prices and to decreased marketings, the report indicated. Most of the Arkansas decline came in reduced receipts from sale of crops — $53,575,000 first half of 1953 against $92,858,000 the first half of 1952. Much of the drop was attributed to smaller marketings of cotton and lower prices for this important crop. However, money received by Ar- Kansas farmers for livestock and livestock products also declined— from $94,786,000 the first half of 1952 to 580,902,000 the first half of this year. This could indicate that unless there is a big upswing, Arkansas farmers will wind up 1953 far under 1952 in cash income. The 1952 total was $598,642,000, including 56,422,000 in government payments.

Other government sources, also asking not to be quoted by name, were skeptical, saying the chances of Beria's having escaped from behind the Iron Curtain were "one in a million."

At the same time, it was made clear tills ;overnment would be glad to receive anv man who knows as many of the Kremlin's secrets as Beria does. So far as is known in the West, Beria was last seen in public in Moscow on May 1. Soviet Premier Mnlenkov denounced him as a traitor July 9 and ousted him from his posts as home minister and first deputy chairman of the Council of Ministers. His name has not been mentioned in the Russian press or radio in recent weeks, and there has been no recent mention of any trial. This has led to some speculation here that he may already have been executed. The Senate source said an agent of McCarthy's subcommittee had flown to a "neutral, non-Communist country" in Europe and, after talking with the purported Beria, reported he is convinced the man is who he says he is. It was then, he said, that another agent who could identify Beria was sent. This source predicted that the State Department would issue a statement about the whole matter shortly. But a department spokesman said he did not know anything about the Beria ease. The Senate source said the man representing himself as Beria said le had escaped with three aides in an airplane and that, if given refuge in the United States, will talk only with McCarthy or Vir» President Nixon. The source said McCarthy's agents have been In touch with him about a month.

A psychological warfare colonel near Seoul Said American Sabre jets met the MIG over the southern boundary of the demilitarized strilp across the Korean peninsula and escorted the Red fighter to Seoul. However, the MIG apparently caught Kimpo Air Base by surprise. * A crowd scurried out to the runway after the .plane stopped. The pilot was described as short and black-haired. An American pilot who met him said the flier pulled a picture of girl from his blue flying suit and tore it up. The American pieced together the shreds of the picture, which he said "looked like North Korean." Col. Don P. 'Hall of Kingsville, Tex., commander of the 4th Fighter-Interceptor Wing, said the pilot was "smiling; and very happy it was over with."

"The captain pointed toward the gun on the MIG and the MIG pilot urned off the switch. Air police mmediately surrounded the plane nd the MIG pilot accepted cigarettes that were offered to him by those milling around." Asked why the pilot brought the MIG, Hall quoted him: "I'm happy to leave communism." ¥ "It is believed he knew of the reward," Hall said. The. pilot's first words were reported to be "O.K." His only other word in English was "no." Hall said his clothing was "npn- descript. . .. a blue-colored flying suit, a leather jacket and light colored shirt and flying boots." The pilot was armed, but he turned over his loaded pistol to Guerra. Hall said the Red pilot is about 25 years old and an officer. Asked what the Air Force planned to do with the MIG Hall explained: "I do not know if we will fly the MIG but we will get the most out of it. We definitely will go over it from all angles in a thorough examination." Hall said the plane may be taken to the United States for testing but indicated this had not been decided.
