Howe, Alden, Minn., looked sorrowfully at a picture of her son, Pfc. Richard R, Tenneson, listed Thursday by the Communists as one of 23 U. S. servicemen who prefer to re- main with their Red captors in Korea. The pic- ture she is holding of her son is shown at right. Mrs Howe told a newsman, "This whole thing is so unlike" her son. "If I could oniy talk to him for at least 10 minutes I could at least make a dent in that kind of she said, add- ing, "If you accept Communism you turn against God." Tenneson, 21, was captured late in 1950 and spent several months in a Red hospital, Alden is about 10 miles west of Albert Lea.

TUCKMAN PANMUNJOM The Korean Repatriation Commission, appar- ently' wrangling over rules, today postponed until as late as next Thursday the start of Allied and Red efforts to coax home prisoners No specmc new date was set for the start of prisoner interviews, a phase of the truce which an Philippine Election Important By JOSEPH ALSOP MANILA, P. the most trying characteristic of the new world in which we live is that what is distant often matters more than what is near. Whether Gov. Thomas E. Dewey leaves politics or runs for re-election in 1954 will certainly matter to the people of New York State. But even to New Yorkers, it can perhaps be less important in the long run than whether Elpidio Quirino is beaten or is re-elected in the current con- test for the Philippine presidency. But why should this be so? The answer has to be deduced from the circumstances of the Philip- pine election itself. These-may be briefly summarized as follows: First, all impartial observers here agree that there is almost no doubt about the popular verdict. Quirino and his Liberals have al The U. N. Command agreed to postponing the start of interviews, scheduled to begin Friday or Sat- urday. It was not clear whether the neutral commission agreed to an Allied demand that the delay be deducted from the 90-day inter- view period, which the U. N. Com- mand said must be counted from the time all unrepatriated prison- ers are in neutral custody. But a commission spokesman's statement that "it is understood" the 90 days will begin on the ac- tual starting date of interviews would indicate the Allied position may have been rejected. During the 90-day interview per- iod, former prisoners of the U.N, and 359 prisoners captured by the 23 Americans to be questioned by their original side. The five-nation neutral commis- sion, composed of India, Sweden, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia and Poland, said the delay was neces- sary because "arrangements and j ui facilities" for the interviews had sentenced here Saturday.

Delegates Told By STANLEY JOHNSON UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. France today offered to negotiate with the Communists for peace in embattled Indochina and suggested that the projected Korean political conference be broadened to take on the task. Deputy Foreign Minister Mau- rice Schumann also told the U.N.'s 60-nation General Assembly that France would do all in its power to have the conference invite India to join in its work. Schumann said that if the Ko- rean conference didn't get around to the Indochinese problem, it might be taken up on a diplomatic level afterwards. Such a negotiated peace between French Union forces in Indochina and the Communist-backed rebels "would make it possible to look forward to the return of more normal conditions of international relations in he said. The French diplomat said he had heard "unofficial declarat ion s" from the "two powers which in- spire and arm the Vietminh reb- els" that they were disposed to negotiate an end to the war. This was a clear reference to the Soviet Union and Communist China. He then declared that "it re- mains for them to prove that these ambiguous hints are not mere propaganda" and suggested that the peace talks begin during or immediately after the Korean con- ference. endangering national defense.
