ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. .Pennsylvania had a corner on the beauty market today, with lovelies from that state the winners of the 105-1 Miss and Mrs. America j crowns. As Evelyn Margaret Ay launched a whirlwind tour today, her victory Saturday night over 51 other beau- ties in the Miss America pageant seemed like a dream. It was the same for Mrs. Erne Snyder, chosen from among 32 other wedded beauties to wear the Mrs. America crown at Asbury Park last night. Miss Ay. who prefers to be called j has a week of television appearances and wardrobe fitting in New York to go through before taking to the road. j Her heart belongs to a naval of- ficer trainee, and she sported a diamond engagement ring on the third finger of her left hand at her j first press conference yesterday. The 2U-yoar-okl pageant winner, who hails from the small town of Kphrata, Pa., is a University of Pennsylvania coed. She got the ring a week ago from Car! Scmpier of Verona. N. J., 22, an ex-football player now in a navy officer train- j ing school at Newport. Pv. I. Evvy's surprised she was the j victor, because she thinks she's too fat in places. She weighs 132 and stands 5 feet S inches high. Her bust-waist-hips measurements are I 37, 24, and 35 inches. I Besides in personal ap- pearance fees, Miss America gets a S5.000 scholarship and other awards worth another There'll be an ironic touch to Mrs. America's appearance today at a fair in Reading in her home state of Pennsylvania. Mrs. Snyder had entered two beauty contests there in the past, but the best she did was to finish as a runnerup. "I didn't expect to she said after being given the crown last night, "I still can't believe it." The 115-pound, 5 feet inches- tall mother of two boys also has a year of personal appearances ahead of her as the Queen of mar- ried lovelies. Mrs. Snyder, 24, has a 34-inch bust, 23-inch waist and 34-inch hips. Beauty alone isn't enough in de- termining a winner in the Mrs. America contest. Homemaking ability was equally important. Runnersup in order in the Miss America pageant, and the scholar- ship prizes they won, were: Miss New York City, Joan Cecelia Kaible, Miss Vir- ginia, Anne Lee Ciglis, Norfolk, 500; Miss Alabama, Virginia Mc- David, Birmingham, Miss Mississippi, Susanne Dugger, Pic- yune, In the Mrs. America contest, second place went to Mrs. Connec- ticut, Mary Ann Marcus of Dan- bury, and third to Mrs. North Carolina, Melvyn Harper of Snow Hill. To Korean Talks U.S. Rejects China's Demand for Russia, India at Parley By A. I. GOLDBERG UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. Tension built up again in the Uni- ted Nations today as explosive new debate became a certainty in the wake of Communist China's de- mand for a "round-table" Ko- rean peace conference. A spokesman for the United States at once emphatically reject- ed the Peiping proposals, made :n a long telegram yesterday from Chinese Premier-Foreign Minister iChou En-lai to U.N. Secretary Gen. JDag Hammarskjold. With the U.N. General Assembly i opening tomorrow, delegates pre- pared for another oratorical battle over Chou's demands that Russia, India, Burma, Pakistan and Indo- nesia be invited to the peace con- ference as and that Red China and North Korea be in- vited to send representatives to the U.N. Assembly "to discuss the question of enlarging the member- ship of the political U. S. Asst. Secretary of State Robert Murphy voiced the Ameri- can rejection, tolling the American Association for the United Nations in a speech in New York that the American plan for a two-sided con- ference must be carried out. The Assembly approved this plan 43-5 last month. No Reason Seen Murphy said the U. S. govern- ment "sees no reason whatever" for new Assembly debate on the conference makeup, or for inviting the Red Chinese to the Assembly. But delegates generally felt the question would break into the open soon after the body elects its of- ficers and organizes for what is supposed to be a three-month session. Qualified quarters said the Uni- ted States, rather than risk having no peace conference at all, would withdraw its opposition to renewed debate. U. S. delegates gathered in New York for their first briefing on the new developments and on other U. S. policies for- the coming session. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles arrived last night to attend the Assembly opening. Chou's telegram said his govcrn- j merit "cannot be satisfied" with the U.N. plan for a two-sided con- Iference and "expresses deep regret at it."

TUCKMAN PANMUNJOM of the 320 Allied prisoners who refused to return to their homelands from Red captivity have arrived at near- by Kaesong, Communist Corres- pondent Wilfred Burchett said to- day. They are expected to be handed over to Indian custody in the Ko- rean neutral zone Sunday. Burchett, the Paris 1'Huraanite newsman who often speaks unoffi- cially for the Red command, did not say how many men are at Kaesong nor did he give their nationality. About 20 of the 320 are non-Ko- reans and probably most of the 20 are Americans. Meanwhile, Indian troops guard- ing anti-Red Chinese and North Koreans squelched angry but small outbursts among the Chinese being handed over today. The POWs hurled rocks and in- sults at Communist observers watching outside, but the crack In- dian soldiers moved into the stock- ades and quieted the shouting, fist- swinging captives. Today's shipment brought the total of POWs already in the de- militarized zone to almost Chinese and North Koreans.

St. Charles Area Accident Fatal To Girl, Motor Noise Prevents Driver From Hearing Yells of Observers ST. CHARLES, Minn. Their warning shouts unheard, the hor- ror-si ricken parents of a 2'.i-year- old Douglas, Minn., girl Sunday morning saw their daughter crush- ed beneath the wheels of a large milk truck at Saratoga, five miles south of St. Charles. Winona County's ninth traffic fatality of the year, Peggy Ann Erickson was killed at about 11 a.m. when a milk transport in front of which she was standing drove away from a curbside parking place. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wal- ter Erickson of Douglas, a com- munity about eight miles north of Rochester, were visiting Sunday at the Tim Carver home here and were among a group of bystanders who sought unsuccessfully to warn the driver of the child's presence in front of the large semitrailer. Sheriff Investigates Winona County Sheriff George Fort investigated the accident and identified the truck driver as James Goodrich, 27, St. Charles. The sheriff said that Goodrich and Carver are both employed by the same trucking firm. Good- rich's truck was owned by George Evans, St. Charles. Goodrich, the sheriff said, is a new driver for the company and came to Saratoga during the morn- ing to have Carver assist him in checking the lights of the vehicle preparatory to a night's hauling as- signment. The sheriff said that Goodrich drove his truck to the street in front of the Carver residence and parked there. Carver and his brother-in-law, Erickson, both came out in the yard when t.he truck stopped. Sheriff Fort said that Goodrich and Carver inspected the truck and then talked for a short time before Goodrich's departure. Peggy Ann was playing in the yard at (he time the inspec- tion was being made, the sher- iff said. At about 11 a.m. Goodrich got info the truck and started the mo- tor. While Goodrich was warming up the motor, the sheriff said, two teen-age Saratoga youths who were astride horses nearby noticed the girl in front of the truck. The two Lar- mier, 14, and 12-year-old John j to the driver in an effort to attract his attention to the presence of the girl. Driver Couldn't Hear The sheriff said, however, that the noise of the racing engine made it impossible for the driver to hear tlie warning cries. The girl's father heard the shout- ing, though, and joined in the at- tempt to halt the driver. Sheriff Fort pointed out that the large hood of (he milk transport obscured the child from the truck- er's vision. A moment later, Goodrich began j to drive away from t.he parking place and the child, who was stand- ing directly in front of the right I front wheel was thrown under the truck. Goodrich had driven only about j 20 feet, the sheriff said, when he j finally became aware of the shout- i ing and gesticulating bystanders. Discovers Girl I He was first aware of the acci- dent after he stopped the truck. Sheriff Fort said that the girl j died almost instantly under the wheels of the transport. i A St. Charles physician was call- ed to the scene and Sheriff Fort summoned Coroner R. B, Tweedy. I An investigation of circumstances j of the mishap resulted ir. a pro- j nouncement that the child's death stemmed from accidental causes and the trucker was not held, the sheriff declared. I Second in Month i This was the second traffic fa- tality to be recorded in the county in less than a month. On Aug. 15 a bicyclist was killed when he was struck by an automo- bile on Highway 61 near LamoilJe. Thus far this year, four of the nine traffic deaths in the county have occurred in ths city of Wino- na and five in the rural areas. Sunday's accident victim was i born April 22, 1951, in Chatfield and is survived by her parents, a I sister, Carol Jean, and grandpar- ents, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Ericksoa, Chatfield. Family funeral services will be j held Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the Jacobs Funeral Home in St. Charles, the Rev. Troy Keeling of-- ficialing. Burial will be in the Chalfield Cemetery.
