S. at any cost" but declared he will insist to the end on withdrawal of Chi- nese forces from North Korea after an armistice. Rhee said he had received a three-point message from Presi- dent Eisenhower, but refused to disclose its contents. The 78-year-old leader's state- ment came on the heels of a report from Washington that he had pro- posed to Eisenhower a mutual de- fense pact plus substantial U. S. financial and military aid as South Kore-'s price for accepting Allied truce terms. "Out of gratitude to the U. S., Good Excuse ST. LOUIS LtV- The Board of Election Commissioners recently sent G. Paul Hofmann a letter ask- ing why he in the last four years. His reply seemed excuse enough. "I am 100 years old and cannot get out to vote." Hofmann was born Nov. 15, 1852.

Saying he is in a "very difficult Rhee did not elaborate on his statement indicating South Korea's bitter opposition to the latest U. N. truce proposal may be softening. Only Monday, Prime Minister Pyun Yung Tai threatened a break with the Allies because of what he called the U. N. Command's "sell- out" to the Communists. I Washington reports said Rhee, called for Eisenhower to agree to these four points: 1. Sign 'a mutual defense pact with South Korea guaranteeing the U. S. would aid South Korea if the Reds attacked after a truce. The U. S. was asked to promise prompt aid regardless of what other United Nations might do in event of such an attack. 2. Promise to continue i.arge- scale economic and military aid to South Korea. 3. Simultaneous withdrawal from Korea of all foreign munist and United a truce is signed. 4. Agreement by the U. S. that it and the others of the United Nations, would not try to stop South Korea from uniting the country aft- er a truce. Washington informants said this last point did not necessarily mean the Rhee government plans a mil- itary drive to unify Korea. They did not rule out such a possibility, however. The armistice negotiations at Panmunjom have been in recess since May 25 and the Communist reaction to the Allied plan will not be known until Thursday when they are resumed.

They are Windsor not Mountbatten. The breezy, sport-loving duke comes from the Danish royal house and was a prince of'Greece before he renounced his old titles to take up British citizenship.

Fighting for trench-line positions just in front of Luke the Gook's Castle on the Eastern Front still raged. There South Korean troops of the 12th Division were attacking for a second tinie against Reds who hammered their way to Allied lines. An Eighth Army briefing officer said the bitter fighting, on the Eastern Front was the heaviest in that section in- more than a year. Some North Korean Com- munists overran two small out- posts., and stormed four main-line positions on or near Anchor Hill.

A cloudburst drenched the jam- packed capital at the moment- of crowning. It rained steadily for 90 minutes, stopping only a few min- utes before the consecration serv- ice ended. More than persons were counted casualties in the crash of crowds, with 25 hurt seriously enough to go to hospitals.
