The authorization was reported to have been given'by President Eisenhower in recent days in order to put Clark in position to act quickly once technical details were cleared away. Officials expressed confidence today barring some last-minute shift by the Reds or some unexpected disruptive move by President Syngman Rhee of South truce will be signed sometime this weekend; possibly Sunday night, Washington time, which would be Monday in Korea. At Seoul, a source close to the armistice talks said the signing probably will come Sun- day, Korean time. It was understood here the day and hour of the signing would be set 24 hours in advance and then would be immediately announced so that the world would have 24 hours notice of the formal conclusion of the agreement that has been two years in negotiations.

TODAY Czechs Out To Regain Homeland Rhee Denounces Armistice Terms By SAM SUMMERLIN PANMUNJOM Korea's President Syngman Rhee today angrily denounced an armistice agreement which appeared all but signed and warned that some Allied promises to the Reds "cannot be allowed to happen."

It could come this week. The liaison officers met for 2 hours, 48 minutes, then recessed without scheduling another session. The stubborn, old South Korean President acknowledged that a truce was imminent but added bit- terly: "I have no word on this crucial matter." In a strongly worded statement, Rhee accused the Allies of giving the Communists pledges which "render impossible a fulfillment" of some of South Korea's basic un- derstandings with the United States.

Kohler Signs Bills, Goes on Vacation MADISON, Wis. UP) Before heading for a vacation on the West Coast, Gov. Kohler cleared his desk Thursday by signing two bills into law and vetoing three others. Bills rejected were intended to: Give county boards a voice in determining whether proposed power dams have enough econo- mic value to outweigh scenic and recreational values that would be lost.

HAAKINSON WASHINGTON UP! President Eisenhower and Secretary of De- fense Wilson have won their long battle to cut funds and target goals of the Air Force. Without a record vote, .the Senate late yesterday shouted approval of a bill carrying to operate the defense establish- ment for the fiscal year which be- gan July 1. The real tests had come earlier after lengthy and at times angry debate. First, by a 55-38, roll call, the Senate rejected an effort by Sen. Maybank (D-SC) to give the Air Force an additional 400 million dollars to order 200 B47 jet bomb- ers, capable of delivering atomic bombs. Big Test This was the big test, since it j was the first to come to a vote. Republican lines held firm against the increase and they picked up 9 valuable Democratic votes to add to the 46 GOP ones. Voting for Mayfaank's amendment were 37 Democrats and 1 Independent. If Maybank's move had succeed- ed, other Democrats planned amendments to restore more of the five billion dollars cut from former President Truman's Air Force budget by the GOP admin- istration. Sen. Hayden (D-Ariz) lost 48-41 in an effort to add about 50 million dollars to .step up pilot training. He recalled that many World War II pilots had been called back into service in Korea and said Con- gress should train enough pilots to avoid this in the future. Sen. Ferguson floor manager for the bill, said the Air Force should be able to turn out new pilots this year in addi- tion to some new trained. Not a change was made in the bill as it had been reported by the Senate Appropriations Committee. A conference committee wiU be named to adjust Senate-House dif- ferences. May Cause Trouble The Senate upped the House totals for the Air Force by about 200 millions, for the Navy by 96 millions and for the Army by 31 millions. It offset this in part by chopping out 250 millions the House voted for a machine. tools pool asked by Secretary Wilson. As the bill cleared the Senate it contained about 77 million more than the House voted. The Senate bill still was more than 1 billion below Eisenhower's budget, more than 6 billions under the Truman requests .and more than 12Vi billions less than Con- ____ gress voted defense agencies last Chewed Remains of bodies identified by police as two missing Hollandsburg, Pa., hunters, were found Thursday in the Gaspe, Quebec, woods, four miles west of the spot where the body of the third hunter was found last week.

ARBOGAST WASHINGTON UP) concerned about the effect of the farm situation on the 1954 elections a delegation of farm state con- gressmen arranged to talk it over with President Eisenhower today.

A med- ical expert said he believed bears could have eaten the two missing heads. conferees indicated that politics as well as agriculture was on the dis- cussion agenda. Rep. H.

Nearby was a white sweatshirt with the words "Hollidaysburg Tigers." A white sweater was stained with dried blood and with a small, circular hole, as if made by a bullet. Widely scattered about were rib bones, parts of spinal columns, leg and arm bones. Two hip bones were found on the far side of the stream. Strewn about were bits of chewed clothing, a watch believed to have been young Lindsey's and other small possessions. Investigation Asked Searchers said none of the bones appeared tc have been broken by human violence but all had been gnawed and dragged about, appar- ently by bears which followed up the murderer. Relatives and, friends of the hunters in Hollidaysburg and near- by Altoona, Pa., pressed for a complete investigation of the kill- ings. A group of Altoona sports- men' last night urged that the ing and told newsmen the general farm picture would be discussed. He said no specific legislation was on the agenda. Asked if the presence of Hall meant that politics also would come in for consideration, Ander- sen said "You can draw your own conclusions." Besides Andersen and Hall, oth- ers invited to the session included Chairman Hope of the House Agri- culture Committee and Reps. Har- vey Horan, Holven, Lovre Hill and August H. Andresen Republican political strategists are known to be concerned about dropping farm prices. Much of the Republican strength in the House is from farm states, but the GOP chieftains remember that in the 1948 elections, when farmers were discontented, the Republicans lost not only the presidential election but control of Congress, which they had held. They don't want that to happen famed Royal Canadian Mounted j again next year, when all House Police be assigned to the probe. The group said it would wire Rep.

There were other contradictory reports that Kim himself had been purged, but there was no way of checking. South Korean intellig e n c e sources, who say Kim still is in, the saddle, say the reported swing toward closer ties with Red China could be the start of a split be- tween China's boss, Mao Tze-tung, and Moscow. They call it a fight between Com- munists trained in Yenan and Reds trained in Moscow. Yenan was the headquarters Red China's Mao before he took over all of China. Out in Purge Among the first officials report- ed kicked put in the purge was Marshal Kim's arch rival, Vice Premier Hu Ka Week, Soviet- trained Korean described by South Korean sources as the real ruler Of North Korea until Russian secret police chief Lavrenti Beria was ousted. Beria's downfall apparently gave Kim the upper hand in his fight for power with Hu. Other members of the North Korean Red heirachy reportedly fired by Kim were Foreign Min- ister Park Hun Yung, a South Korean Communist leader who fled North in 1946: Justice Minister Lee Sung Yup, whose background was not available; and ambassador to Russia Choo Yling Ha, Moving up alongside Kim in the new order, Korean sources say, is Kim Too Bong, a Yenan-trained Korean. Other Yenan-trained Ko- rean Communists recently an- nounced by Pyongyang radio to be in the cabinet are Hong Myung Hi, Jung II Young, Park Yi Won and Choi Yong Kum. All are vies premiers. Replace Foreign Ministers The renegade South Korean Park Hun Yung, who became North Korean foreign minister, was re- ported to have been replaced by Vice Foreign Minister Lee Tong Kun, another South Korean who was trained at Yenan, Park Hun Yung was reported in a Communist jail. He is said to have fallen from power three months ago. In Seoul, South Korean Home Minister Chun Hun Shik said the fight was between Chinese and Russian-trained Reds and that Marshal Kim, whose real name is Kim Song Ju, has become the supreme power. Other Reports There were other reports that Marshal Kim, whom the South Ko- reans call an imposter, was close to Lavrenti Beria, the deposed se- cret police chief of Russia. South Korean Intelligence sources said they did not know whether Kim had any close con- nection with Eeria. There were still other reports that Kim II Sung had been given the ax in North Korea and would not be at Panmunjpra to sign a Korean armistice, if one is ar- ranged. However, the last report seemed doubtful because Gen. Mark W. Clark's headquarters in Tokyo has had signed truce communications bearing the name of Kim II Sung in recent weeks. If Kim does not go to Panmun- jom to sign the truce document that would mean his Red Chinese counterpart, Gen. Peng Teh-huai, would not be expected to be there. The truce must be signed by the opposing and Peng for the Reds and Clark for the Allies.
