A motion to disapprove the plan was rejected Friday by a 310-11 roll call vote. The new agencies will come into being Aug. 1 disapproves. unless the Senate Russia Signs Trade Pact With French, Danes TODAY Awful Dilemma In Berlin By STEWART ALSOP MUNSAN possible show- down meeting of Allied and Com- j munist truce negotiators was post-' poned for 24 hours today at the request of the Reds. The recess put off until 2 p. m. tomorrow (midnight EST today) an expected Red reply to reported Allied demands that the Commu- I nists sign an armistice now or face I the prospect of a breakdown in the negotiations. i The second consecutive 24-hour 1 recess requested by the Reds was arranged during a 1-minute 'meet- ing of liaison officers at Panmun- jom. North Korean Col. Ju Yon said the delay was needed for "admin- istrative reasons" and the U. N. quickly agreed, an official spokes- man said. The extra day gives the Red high command more time to arrive at what may be a momentous decision vitally affecting the chances for a quick end to more than three years of fighting. In Washington, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles said Friday night "We are ready for honorable3 peace" in Korea. At the same time, however, he declared that "If the Communists want war, we must be ready for that, too." Dulles and Assistant Secretary of State Walter S. Robertson reported to the nation by radio and television on Robertson's efforts to win South Korea's President Syngman Rhee over to a truce and on the recent Big Three foreign ministers' meeting. Dulles branded as "absurd" a Red demand that the Allies guar- antee the future conduct of South Korea. I wish that someone would guar- antee the future good conduct of the Communist regime of he said. "But President Rhee has given explicit assurance that he will not obstruct in any manner the implementation of the proposed armistice." Robertson said the U. N. Com- mand now feels it can in good faith proceed with an armistice and that Rhee will offer no obstruction to carrying it out. In San Francisco. South Korea's ambassador to Washington said bluntly Friday that if the Commu- nists have not agreed to unify Big Red Buildup May Signal New Attack on Allies Waves of Planes Bomb and Strafe Advancing Communists- By GEORGE McARTHUR SEOUL of Chinese infantrymen supported by tanks and field guns today swarmed recklessly southward in daylight as the Communists boldly beefed up troops which smashed through the Kumsong Bulge this week. Even as Allied air watched Red infantry lemma of American foreign policy is startlingly visible. The nature of this dilemma is very simple. There are all sorts of reasons why the United States should now be engag- ed in an all-out political and diplo- matic offensive for German unity. But, it is difficult to engage in an all-out offensive for something you do not really want.

There was no indication whether the big Red buildup signaled new attacks or was a frantic effort to hold newly-won positions. Heavy fighting broke out east of the Kumsong Bulge as the Com- munists slammed about men against South Korean and Ameri- can positions on the Eastern Front. Co-ordinated Assault One North Korean regiment- about three hill positions northeast of the Punch- bowl, about 15 miles east of the Bulge, in a co-ordinated assault backed by rounds of artillery and mortar fire, the Eighth Army said. In a fierce 3-hour fight, the ROKs drove back the assault force and killed or wounded an estimated 977 Reds, the Army said. Infantrymen of the U. S. 45th Di- vision smashed back two 700-man Red attacks near Christmas Hill. Waves of Allied planes strafed and dive bombed the Red troops as they openly crossed the Kum- song on bridges or forded the river. Heavy trucks rumbled through the shallow water, apparently ob- livious to Allied planes overhead.

HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON UPK- Grim United States concern over Communist conduct in the truce negotiations was mirrored today in official word that the Allies must fight on in Korea if the Reds reject an "honorable peace." With the negotiations at a critical recessed again at Communist request until tonight (midnight of State Dulles told the nation and the world last night: "We are not suppliants.
