One of the matters presumably discussed was what course the, United States should follow if the present Korean peace talks fail to produce a complete armistice by Dee. 27, the deadline set by truce negotiators when the issue of a buffer zone across Korea was settled on Nov. 27. Mr. Truman cut short hif Flor- ida vacation by a week to fly back yesterday for this and other con- ferences. Meeting with Mr. Truman were secretary of defense Lovett, un- dersecretary of state Webb, the secretaries of the three armed services and the members ot the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Seeking to allay tension which grew out of the sudden announce- ment Saturday that he was fly- ing-back to Washington, Mr. Tru- man told reporters Sunday: "There is nothing get it into your minds that the world is coming to an end." Get Top Billing The Korean negotiations had top billing on the agenda for the White House meeting. Mr. Truman also disclosed that' he will follow up the study of the delicate international situation with, a conference with attorney general- McGrath and other offi- cials of the Justice Department which will presumably cover a congressional investigation into federal tax scandals. Asked by reporters, who inter- viewed him when he landed at the Washington airport yesterday, whether he would discuss the Ko- rean situation, among other things, Mr. Truman said, "of course." And he said this meeting will be followed by a conference with the attorney general and several other people in McGrath's office, "probably? this afternoon.
