agreement on a Korean War armistice Officially there the closest secrecy but it clear that in high Taft Doesnt Favor Going Without Allies of the government there was very strong confidence that agreement on a truce was at hand There was a notable increase of optimism among officials and some indication the latest Red re sponse could be considered as vir tual acceptance of the UN pro posals of 10 days ago t According to thisinterpretation the only matters left to be nego tiated arerelatively minor differ ences Received by US The Red reply to the UN plan for dealing with the deadlock over disposition of prisoners war was received bythe government Thurs WASHINGTON W Sen Tafl ROhio said Thursday it is permit India and other day morning The Reds presented members of the United it to the

and wrapped itself around the power pole shown in this picture Hansen had been a deputy sheriff for two years America Reaches Milestone in Multiplying Atomic Fuel ATLANTICCITY United States Thursday announced the successful breeding of atomic is the production of at least as much or more new fis sionable material as is burned up in the process of making it The development is one ost revolutionary in the most of the entire atomic program It was disclosed by Chairman Gordon Dean of the Atomic Energy Commission in a speech prepared for the Edison Electric Institute Dean cautioned his audience of 3000 electric andpower men not from atomic energy is hereBut one he called the achievement a stone of progress it holds put the promise of makinga civil ian atomic power industry even more feasible arid attractive in the longrangethan it has hitherto appeared to be The process Dean said was worked out at the AECs reactor testing station at Arco Ida He illustrated it this way To explain to you the impact of reaching this new milestone I would like to use an analogy Wants 143 Wings Senator Promises Tough Fight Over Air Sloshes WASHINGTON 0kA hell of a fight in the Senate to restore some of the five billion dollars cut1 from Air Force funds Was promised by Sen May bank DNG Thursday in the wake President Eisenhowers budget We will try to back whatever is necessary to get the 143wing Air Force as soon as possible Maybank said Eisenhower on his nationwide television report to the nation Wed nesday night reiterated that his administration spend 60 cents of every defense dollar next year for Navy and Air Force air power and he declared We are not going to cripple this nation and we are going specifical ly to keep up its air power This was only a few hoursafter en Hoyt S Vandenberg the re tiring Air Force chief of staff Must Cut Aid WASHINGTON Hoyt Vandonborg indicated Thursday that U S air aid to Ht North Atlantic mutt bo cut if Air Forco goal is changed from 143 wings to 120 Tho chiof of staff of tho Air Forco who is retiring Juno 30 continued his fight against the Eisenhower administration deci sion to aim for 120 wings by De cember HEAD ELC of the south central district of the eran Church were elected Thursday at the convention inMason City The president Dr V T Jordahl Mason City holds over The others left to right are4he Key I B Sorensen Jewell stewardship secretary the Rev Burton W Smith Forest City sec fetarytreaaurer and the Rev Olaf Holen Roland vice president told a appropriations sub committee that cutting back the Air Force goal from 143 wings would increase the risk to na tional security beyond the dictates of national prudence Vandenberg said the Air Force did rot approve the cutback and Idid not I The new administration trimmed about five billion dollars out of the new funds requested for the Air Force in former President Tru mans January budget And it re duced from 143 to 120 wings of 30 to 75 planes each the buildup target for 1955 r v to assume that economic power albeit a greatly pversimplifiec would like to askyou to im agine a world inwhich only one hundred gallons of gasoline existed When that gasoline was used up gasoline would forever be gone earth Butlet usimagine that could make gasoline ou ofwater by burning the gasolln we had in the presenceof water Let us say for example that by burning up our 100 gallons of gaso line we could change 90 gallons of water into new gasoline and that thereafter we could by burning gasoline in the presence of water always make new gasoline equiva lent to 90 per cent of that which we burnedBysuch a process we would quite obviously greatly stretch out our supply of gasoline but we could hardly expect to stretch it out indefinitely for we would always be making a little ess gasoline than we consumed Ultimately we would run out of gasoline before weran out of water and all the rest of the water n the worldwould be uselessto us so far as gasoline was concerned But to pursue our oversimpli fied analogy still further now let us assume that we Succeeded in developing a way by which we puld produce 100 or more gal ons of new gasoline from water or every 100 gallons we burned Suddenly we would have made it possible for ourselves to change gradually all of the water in the world into gasoline Our gasoline shortage would have vanished Dean said that essentially what has happened at Arco defense of his Ike Promises No Munich But No War Either WASHINGTON ft Dwight D Eisenhower inaugurated a new era of presidential contact with the people Wednesday pledging on a family circle telecast there would be no appeasement of Com munism and no risk of a general war Surrounded by four members of his official family he gave these assurances We are going to keep our tem per we are going to build our strength Not Going to CrippU We are not going to cripple this nation and we are going specific ally to keep up its air power Our effort is to secure and prosperity in peace So in easy conversational style and passing the ball repeatedly to his Cabinet aides Eisenhower met head on the accusations aired in Congress only a few hours before that his Air Force budget

Wednesday night Wash ington time Official secrecy covered reaction at the State and Defense Depart ments and the White House But there were indications thai a solution was beingreached It is the prisoner which las blocked agreement for many months It turns on the question of what should be done about pris oners of war who were unwilling to go home after an armistice In putting forth their
