BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWg PAC1 THRU Rhee Accuses U.S. Or Wasting Korean Rebuilding Funds SEOUL (AP) — President Syngman Rhee today accused the United States of wasting Korean aid funds on "unnecessary administrative expenses" and proposed that he take over the U. S.-financed rebuilding program. Rhee said the ruins of Korean factories "stand gauntly for anyone to see, with few signs of re- uon or rebilitatiod-e true nsnha spite the millions of dollars that supposedly were earmarked for that purpose." "China received billions of dollars worth of goods and materials, but most of it was wasted," Rhee declared in an interview. "Whoever may have been responsible, we do not want Korea criticized as China was." The ROK President suggested that the United States "grant dollar credits to the Republic of Korea, as has been done in the past with France and Great Britain, and procurement advisers and pro- supply a small staff of financial vide for strict accountability." "We want to make sure that every dollar is spent honestly . . . ," Rhee declared. Official Mystified Informed of Rhee's criticism, a highly placed U.S. official said he was mystified by recent statements of South Korean government officials attacking the aid program. He said joint approval of expenditures for all aid measures is required by law and the South Koreans have approved all major j projects. j ''The hardest job we have had here is to make haste slowly and try to advise Korea to spend the money wisely," he said. "They ex pect factories to spring up over night." Rhee said the United States and South Korea should withdraw im mediately from the Geneva conference. "The world knows that we never had the slightest hope that the Communists would consent to the unification of Korea at Geneva or at any other conference," he declared. "That was why we opposed the truce and why we continue to insist that all negotiations with the Communists are futile at best and dangerous at the worst."

Laniel's Foes May Force Him Out of Office Debate on Indochina Is Becoming More Heated 3y HARVEY HUDSON PARIS (.^—Premier Joseph Laniel's foes returned to the National Assembly attack on his Indochina war policy today amid signs the shaky French government may finally be forced out of office. The Indochina debate, which began listlessly last week with the usual assaults from the Socialists and Communists, was expected to warm up today when members of parties in Laniel's own majority open fire on his conduct of the war. Several leaders from these groups have asked to speak. Debate on the explosive issue is not expected to reach the crucial stage until tomorrow. Foreign Minister Georges Bidault, on whom Laniel apparently is counting to turn the tide in his favor, will r turn from the Geneva conference to speak then. Bidault waited over in Geneva to hear Russian Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov's policy speech to the Indochina conference today. Western observers in Geneva generally believed the Russian had scheduled his statement at this time in an effort to influence the National Assembly action. It was generally agreed that Laniel, who twice in the past month had to call for votes of confidence to continue his Indochina policy unchecked, would seek another such vote at the close of the talking. The balloting probably will not come before late Thursday or Friday. $2 Million Fire Sweeps Throug Canadian City WINNIPEG. Man. (#>>— Flames whipped by high winds destroyed three large office buildings and a dozen business establishments today on downtown Portage Avenue Canada's widest main street- Damage was estimated at around two million dollars. Firemen battled the blaze for §even hours before it could be brought under control. One fireman was injured. Only a shell a no pile of rubble remained at the seven-story Time Building, where the fire started possibly from a short circuit in an electric sign. A gale that blew in from the South with gusts of up to 70 miles an hour spread the flames .,in three directions. Westward the fire burned two ladie's wear shops, a cafe, and a billiard and bowling center. Eastward it jumped Hargrave Street to sweep through Dayton's Department Store, and another cafe and a finance company office. Northward the fire spread to a four-story building, which houses a cleaning establishment, the office of Royal Winnipeg Ballet, a furrier's and cafe. The flames destroyed a musical supplies store, a men's clothing shop and a shoe store on the main floor of the Time Building. The fire leaped Portage Avenue briefly to start a fire in the upper floor window of an eight-story T. Eaton Department Store but firemen halted the flames there.

The companies asked Pulaski Chancery Court to force the state Revenue Department to comply with a 1951 law regulating the sale of cigarettes in border areas. The law permits businessmen who operate within 300 feet of a state border to sell cigarettes at the prevailing prict in the border state. Since Missouri does not collect a tax on cigarettes, this would allow the four firms to sell cigarettes at a six cents-per-pack discount. Filing the suit were the Gulp Mercantile Co., of St. Francis; Greer Service Station, Paragould; Lowry Service Station, Leach vil(e; and Johi.-3on's Esso Station, Blytheville.
