Political sources said Maher be- came involved in a-dispute with 4he. palace, which installed his In- dependent government January 27 following bloody 'anti-British torch.riots in Cairo. It was reported Ahmed Naquib Hilaly Pasha, also an and one of Egypl's elder states- rr.en, may be asked to form a new government. He said he had lie-rd nothing about it. Maher Pasha's son, Mohammed Aly Maher Pasha, said the 69- year-old Independent leader re- Jigned because of "Inability to work due to mysterious currents behind his back." King Farouk ii- -tailed Maher Pasha after ousting the strong Nationalist government cf Wafdist Party Leader Mustapaha el Nahas Pasha.

And only twice during his word, nationally-broadcast and televised address did he even re- fer to the "Soviet" by that name.

Leaders Reds .Reject Proposal To Exchange Sick, Wounded Prisoners Munsan, truce negotiators--said today'they would reject" efforts' to e no early truce and called for an immediate exchange of all sick and wounded prisoners. The Communists rejected Lib- ly's .-eq'uest and accused the U. N. of "deliberately serving Allies notice" that they planned to ay the armistice negotiations. The Red notice that they will land by their nomination of Rus- ia .as a neutral inspector came only a day after U. N. negotiators nnounced "final and irrevocable' ejection of te Soviet Union. Gen. Chang Chun said the two- week deadlock over Russia could be broken only if the U. N. ac- epted one of two alternatives, both which would include Soviet fpresentatives on neutral teams which would inspect behind the lines during a truce. The first, he said; was for both to agree to all neutral na- tions nominated. The second would be for each side to seiect its rep- resentatives without agreement .on the part of the other side. "Apart from these two, there will be no other solution in re- solving this Chang said. "In the interests of any armistice we demand that you withdraw your unreasonable opposition."

High Levels Expected To Be Maintained, Says Bulletin Business activities in Arkansas reached new high peaks in 1951. Present indications are that high levels will be retained during 1952, Thp- Arkansas Business Bulletin reported today. The Bulletin is" edited by re- search workers on the staff of the Bureau.of Business and Econo- mic Research in the University College of Business Administra- lion under direction of Dr. Merwyn Bridenstine, associate director. "Inflation and the shifting of production to meet the needs -of the defense program were the ma- jor problems confronting our economy as 1951 the re- port stated in reference to the national situation. "Price increas- es were significant during the first quarter of the year, but were substantially curbed during Ini second and third quarters with only moderate increases occurring during the fourth the report added. Referring to business conditions in Arkansas during the year, the Bulletin-stated: "General business activity in this state, as measured by the greal n ajority- of the available busi- ness indicators, continued to -rise above the high levels of the pre- ceding year. This increase In Ar- kansas business resulted largely from increased farm receipts, ex- panding consumer purchases i durables. Jnccea en in- business investment in -ne plants and equipment. "Capital invested in new indus- tries and major expansion totaled more than This ex- pansion accounted- for more than hew jobs. Increased build- ing construction in this state is reflected in the larger number of employes in the construction in- dustry." Cash farm income totaled during 1951, or an in- crease of approximately 10 per cent over the amount for the pre- vious year, the report stated, while the estimated production of lumb- er and. petroleum was, in general below the figure for 1950. Total wages, however, increased ap- proximately 9.4 per cent over the previous year, and the monthly dollar volume of bank debits was 11.8 per cent above the figure for the preceding year. "All indications are that income in Arkansas will be maintained at 1951 levels or perhaps slightly higher" during 1952, the Bulletin reported. "A shortage of employes may develop as Ihe year pro gresses." Senate Armed Forces Pay Hike Bill Favors Enlisted Men And Junior Officers Foreigners Hurt In Hong Kong Rioting Hong spire'd riots broke out this after- noon in Hong Kong's crowded Kowlpon section. At least six for- eigners were Injured. The rioters were demonstrating against British refusal to let a Red Chinese delegation enter the crown colony. They attacked foreigners who happened to be in the area, but apparently none was seriously hurt. Three. Chinese were wounded, presumably by fragments of tear gas shells police fired info the rioting crowds. Four other Chinese reportedly were beaten up. Eight Doth Athens, Greece A court martial today sentenced to death eight members of a 29-member spy ring. Four others were sen- lenced to life imprisonment. Relumed Decorations From Relatives Brings No Comment Washington The armed forces are accepting, wthout com- ment, or attempt to explain, the rejection by servicemen's relatives of medals awarded Korean war forces. A Defense Department spokes- man said today that unless ac- companying letters ask number of cases compares with World Wars I and II. But officials of the decorations boards of the services are reason- ably certain of one thing: Never until the Korean war had the na- tion's highest military award, the Medal of Honor, been returned to the government by an angry and questions, the returned medals and j aggrieved relative -of a dead correspondence from relatives arc placed in the serviceman's per- sonal file and the matter consider- ed closed.

The few records available In the Pentagon Indicate that during World War I a Distinguished Service Cross and a Sliver Star were returned .to the Army, with the' possibility there may have been other unrecorded Instances.

The House had- approved a flat 10 per cent boost in base pay and allowances for all of the persons expected to be in the armed services during the next year. The Senate-Armed Services Committee yesterday approved a bill that "completely revised this by limiting the Average increase to 5.6 per cent, and giving most of the boost to lower ranking officer; and enlisted men with families. "This is nearer an actual cost- Chairman Rus- sell (D-Ga) of the Senate commit- tee said. He estimated the Senate Jill cost about a year less than the House bill. Based on an expected persons in the armed forces, the House bill cost was estimated at compared with for .he' Senate's. Three Per Cent Boost The Senate bill would allow everybody a three per cent boost n base pay. For officers and men with dependents, such as a wife and child, the Senate bill upped allowances by lump sums. Thus every officer from a second licu- cnant to a five-star general would get a a month boost in quarters allfiwance if .he has one or two dependents. If he has three or more he would get addi- tional. Similarly under the Senate bill all officers would get a -in- crease in the monthly subsistence, which now is This would be compared with under the House bill.
