The sheriff's office at Edwardsville reported a driver's license in a plastic container in the car tentatively identified the dead man as Charles E. Smith, 63.

His car had crashed into the ditch and came to rest upside down, with Smith pinned inside. A farmer and two truck drivers re'moved the body, which was brought to the hospital in a Straube funeral home ambulance. Deputy Coroner Carson Quinn was called by the hospital to take charge of the body and reported later a brother of the dead man was to come from East St. Louis to identify him.

The wind hit 75 mph several times and the highest observed was a gust of 81 mph, (A reading of 70 mph is the bottom of the sale of hurrican winds). M. D. Walston, airport manager, said planes had been brought into hangars or chained down when it was known the high wind was, coming.

UN Will Give i Answer Friday On Truce Talks Expected to Agree to Resume Stalled Conference By nonKHT B. TtJCKMAN MUNSAN, Korea /P - The U. N. lommand will tell the Communists Friday whether It is ready to resume the long-stalled Korean armistice negotiations — and It Is expected to say "yes." The U. N. late tonight asked for a meeting to deliver a letter answering repeated Red requests to ?et the talks under way again. Negotiations we're indefinitely suspended by the U. N. last Oct. 8. The request came only a few hours after the first group of Allied sick and wounded from North Korean stockades arrived at Kaesong — just six miles from freedom. Communist staff officers said half of the first 100 POWs to be exchanged Monday at Panmunjom are non-Koreans. U. N. officials were hopeful as many as 50 Americans will be freed. The Communists have promised that 120 Americans will be among 600 U. N. prisoners returned, i To List I'OWS The Reds said they would reveal Sunday the exact number of prisoners from the U. S. and other Allied nations to be traded Monday. The U. S. Fifth Air Force said reconnaissance planes sighted six vehicles of the Red POW convoy on the outskirts of Kaesong before dusk. These vehicles apparently were elements of two convoys which joined north of Kaesong earlier Thursday. Other units were strung along the road 40 miles north to Sinmak as darkness fell, the Air Force said. \ Units of a third convoy were 15 miles north of Pyongyang, North Korean capital. They still were moving southward. For the second day, Allied reconnaissance pilots reported t Reds were using the attack-free route of POW convoys to shielc streams of Communist supply trucks headed for the front. At a staff officers meeting Thurs day tha Allies informed the Reds that the first group of Communis sick and wounded would leave Pu- san aboard a 12-car train Sunday noon and arrive at Munsan early Monday. Red staff officers again askec for renewal of full-scale armistice talks, suspended by the Unitec Nations last Oct. 8. The U. N. has not replied to the request. In Washington Wednesday, offi cials said Gen. Mark Clark, U. N Far East commander, had been instructed what to tell the Reds Details were secret, but it was assumed Clark would accept. The Reds have promised to. ex change 600 disabled Allied POWs at the rate of 100 daily. The U. N agreed to return about 5.0QO North Koreans and 700 Chinese at the rate of 500 a day. Army Cutting Down Draft Requirement)WASHINGTON /l> The Army i cutting down its draft require ments for June 32,000 men com pared with the 53,000 quota fo each of the preceding four months The lower quota, set Wednes day, was anticipated. The Defensi Department had said the highe draft calls in the early part of thi: year were occasioned by the re lease of large numbers of men called in during the first month of the Korean conflict. Men an expected to flow more evenly ind the services hereafter, unless th< international situation changes. The June quota brings to 1,4-16, 430 the total number drafted or earmarked for induction since September, 1950, when Selective Service was resumed.

The alternative, • he said, is at worst atomic war and at best unending fear which finds "humanity hanging from a cross of iron." "Is there no other way tft* world may live?" Eisenhower asked. < "What Is the Soviet Union to dp? The United States is ready to assume its just ipart."
