Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 18, 1953, Mason City, Iowa y j North Iowas Daily Newspaper HOME EDflON i DN CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THI NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH lOWANS NEIGHBORS VOL LIX Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY MARCH 18 1953 This Paper Consists of Two One NO U S Asks Russia to Agree to Disarmament Plan Instructs Russia to Punish Pilot Protest on Attack by Two MIGs WASHINGTON iff The United States Wednesday demanded that Eussia discipline the Soviet jet fighter who attacked a US weather reconnaissance plane last Sunday 25 miles off Kamchatka The State Department announced a protest has been delivered to the Moscow Foreign Office bythe American Embassy The note asks measures to pre vent a repetition of such an at tack and disciplinary action against those responsible for Sun days incident Trailed by MIGs The Air Force announced Tues day that the American B50 bomb er flying out of Alaska was trailed by two Soviet MIG15s and that one Russian plane opened fire on it The B50 returned fire and the Soviet plane did not press the attack The exchange apparently did no damage to either plane It has been made clear here that the US Air Force will continue to fly its missions despite Russias implied challenge to its use of air space over international waters of the North Pacific That was the word which top Pentagon spokesmen gave out Wednesday Military officials who may not be named also let it be known that the Pentagon had talked down a State Department suggestion to postpone any public announcement of the Kamchatka incident Pacts Monday The State Department had the bare facts of the Kamchatka clash early Mondayit waslearned and advised caution in announcing the event because neither the attack ing MIG15 northe defending XJS B50 suffered human casualties or any apparent damage The line of reasoning of some diplomats ran like this Silence by Washington might help to smoke out Russian inten tions Publicity could weaken the psy chological impact of the strong U S and British protests in recent days over the unopposed shooting down of two Allied aircraft over Germany The Pentagon won the decision to announce the Kamchatka affair after maintaining the military view that it would be better to get out the factual story before Mos cow could use a perverted version for propaganda purposes or to ex ert diplomatic pressure Boy 13 Kills Aunt Sister in Row Over Television HEBRON Neb 13year old boy who said he took gun in hand after being refused permis sion to watch

simple questioni of the Soviet representative sitting here with us To these questions wo want no quick debaters answers Instead we wouldprefer the con sidered reply of the soviet govern ment 1 Is this time w h e n the Soviet government is willing to dis cuss constructively the subject of disarmament which the charter recognizes is so importantfor the setlement of conditions of peace 2 Is this a forum in which Soviet representative will negoti ate with his colleagues in orderto jive tangible form in this particu lar field to what the Sovietrulers claim is their tried and tested policy of peace The Soviet government should recognize the challenge in newed suggestion that they gotiate in good faith on the prob om of disarmament An effective system of disarmament will pro vide the best insurance against aggression by anybody against anybody for it will remove the armed strength which makes ag gression Seams Foolish Gross remarked that it may seem to talk about dis armament while the world is re arming but he declared that it is the highest part of responsibility to continue efforts to disarm Gross said the United States did not pretend that the Western plan represented the last
