SATURDAY EVENINO, AUGUST SO, 1»S2 AP, Kin f ami NiA NtrtumT nna nvi cent U. N. Dead And Wounded In Korea Total 262,421 United Nations, N. Y.-W Casualty figures for United Nations reflecting bitter fighting waged during the deadlocked truce talks, an Associated Press survey showed today . Dead and wounded for the 17- nation force fighting -under the U. N. flag now total 862,421, an increase of 29,288 since a survey in April. Overall casualty figures, including dead, wounded and missing, total 384,609. The April survey--based on figures supplied ' by delegates of countries fighting in Korea--gave total casualties as .419,456. South Korean officials 'since havo revised their list of missing, however, dropping 63,000 from the April roll.' The South Korean figures do not include the hundreds of thousands of civilians who have fallen victim to the tide of war. In comparison to the U. N. totals the latest Army estimate of Communist Chinese and North Korea military casualties--issued in June--gave an overall figure of 1,623,404. There was no attempt to break this down into dead, wounded and missing. The Republic of Korea has had the most dead and wounded of any of the nations ranged under the U. N. flag-.-37.167 dead, 112,427 wounded. The Ignited Stales is next with 18,301 dead and 65,298 wounded, based on this week's pentagon report. T h e ' U . S. also lists 1,611 known prisoners and 11,042 missing, bringing its current casualty total to 116,252. This is an increase of 1,403 U. S. L-illed and 7,082 wounded since 'he April tabulation.

Aber-, nethy, 49, has served in Congress; lor 10 years. ' . - | Miami, warnings Fla.-yp)- H u r r i c a n e were hoisted along 250-mile stretch of Atlantic coastline between Fernandina, Fla., and Georgetown, S. C., today for a dangerous Atlantic hurricane moving slowly toward land. The center of the disturbance was located about 110 miles cssl of St. Augustine, Fla., the middle of the morning. It was moving slowly northwestward at about 10 miles per hour, packing winds of 80 to 90 miles per hour. The advisory warned that "this is an emergency" and said tersely. . . 'All interests on the Georgia and South Carolina coasts should take immediate huricane precautions.;' Storm warnings remained up from Jacksonville, Fla.. to- Wilmington, N .C. Grady Norton, chief storm forecaster at the Mi, ami weather bureau, said it probably would be another 12 hours before the hurricane center hit land if it continued the present ~~iurae. The weather bureau said tides would be abnormally high along the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina and the extreme northeast section of Florida. Residents have been battening down and getting ready for the blow. Thousands of labor day have changed plans away from coastal weekenders and movod areas.

Many Top Wage Earners Leaving The State Trend Sold To Be Disturbing; Tax Problem Faced The top wage earners of Arkansas are migrating to other states, and the population of the very young and of the old is on the upswing, according to the current business report of the University. Bureau of Business Economic Research. The bureau sees the trend as "probably the most disturbing fact about the population changes during the last 10 years," and notes that it may result in "larger burdens to be borne by the taxpayers." The bureau says population losses in Arkansas during the past 10 years have been concentrated in the 15 to 35-year-old age bracket. "These are among the more productive members of the labor force," the report said, adding that their loss may be attributed "to better economic opportunities in other area." Concerning the increase in poo- ulation of the young and the old. the report said that higher taxes "can be expected to extend in the future." . "The problem of overcrowded schools has been of primary con- concern to - educational authorities and public officials since the j war . . . fet the same .time society has become more conscious of the I problems of the aged." Business Improve* Business activity . in Arkansas showed improvement in the second quarter of 1952, the University experts reported. But they warned that many communities may experience a decline in business activity during the next few months--although, in many lines and especially in the larger cities, business activity will probably continue at a high level. In an analysis of population and employment trends in the state, the bureau also declared that there is "strong evidence that the population is experiencing a readjustment to economic realities within the state." Hither Income* On this point the bureau, in its Rent Boss James Mclnnes Henderson, 40, native of Daingerficld, Texas, was named in Washington as the new director of rent stabilization to succeed Tighe E. Woods when he becomes price chief September 1. Henderson now is general coun sel of ESA.

W. Trimble of Berryville apoke informally last night to a group of Washington County Farmers Union members and guests at Harmon Playfield, where a get-together and watermelon feast was held. The congressman spoke briefly and answered a number of questions from those present In the course of his remarks, he said he always felt that if a man stayed on the farm, close to thc land, that man would continually oppose any of the "isms" which creep Into the country. That is one reason he is always so ready to support farm legislation, he remarked, In replies to questions, h? said federal aid to education "is an dead as a doornail," for the present, at least.

He has spent 3fl years in Europe where he has been foreign director of the Near East Foundation. Mrs. Archer is the former Evangelinc Pratt Waterman of Fayetteville, and has been teaching musical appreciation in the community high school in Athens. Mr. Archer will remain a consultant with the Near East Foun- drtlon the remainder of this year, and will travel back and forth to New York and Washington. However, the family plans to make Fayetteville their home, and Mr. Archer, the author of "Balkan Journal, An Unofficial Observer In Greece," plans to write another btok, and to spend much of his time fishing, riding and wood- siwlng, He left Greece mainly, he said here today, because of the very great inflation there.

Greece Is maintaining IS crack divisions of armed men, which Is a heavy drain on the country's finances, Mr. Archer reports. He pointed out that thousands of towns were destroyed during the war and later on by the Communists, who at one time occupied much of the country. When thc Reds found they were not going tu stay in Greece, they laid waste to considerable property and there are thousands of Greek farm families who do not have farm animals to do their work. As a result, (he economy in the country in lhat country Is hard hit.

He hopes the number of projects so well started with Marshall fund aid can he completed but there Is tome question about Turkey, he reports, Is not In the tame situation, for Turkey can raise IU own wheat. Greece im- pnrts much of the grain It needs. On the other hand, much of the exports of Greece are of the kind which no longer are In such demand as formerly. For example, merly American cigarette manufacturers used a large amount of the tobacco raised there in American tobacco factories. Now this use had been cut sharply. Olive oil is another item cited--thc use of this material in America has dropped. Mr. Archer has been decorated by three countries: hy Greece as Commander of the Order of the Phoenix and with the Order of the Redeemer; by Tsarist Russia with the Medal of thc Red Cross and by pre.Communist Albania as Commander of Ihe Order of warmonger." Malik, however, was putting words in the general's nouth. Eisenhower actually told the Legion America needs security forces "whose destructive ..nd retaliatory power is so great that it causes nightmares in the Kremlin whenever they t h i n k of attacking us." Malik peppered his long icpec- lion speech before thc 12-nation Disarmament Commission' with attacks on thc western powers, part i c u l a r l y the Uniled Stales. He accuicd the U. S. of seeking World domination by putting forth proposals that would delay arms reduction '"and squeeze porflts out of Ihe world by its monopolies." He said U.
