absence from Washington of President Truman and his advisors Ridgway has a free hand in the handling of the ceasefire talks and the Kaesong neutrality con troversy But there was no doubt here that moves require at least informal approval from higher headquarters The last communist message de manded that the UN reinvestigate the red charges of neutrality vio lations and then either give guar
