South Korea was reported today advocating San Francisco or Hono- lulu as the site of the Korean peace conference. An alternate choice would be a city in Latin America, perhaps Rio de Janeiro. This development came as U. N. delegates waited for Communist Reaction to the General Assembly decision yesterday that its side I would be made up of U. N. countries which sent troops to Korea, plus South Korea. The Soviet Union is to be invited if the Communist side desires it. The U. N. hopes that Red China, North Korea and the Soviet Union will be the Communist represent- atives. Some sources here pointed out, however, that the Reds have the right to invite other countries besides the Soviet Union. These sources speculated they might undertake to enlarge their side to meet the U. N, representatives nation for nation. Send Instructions As the special Korean session of the Assembly adjourned yesterday, U. N. Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold sent its decisions regarding the peace parley to Red China and North Korea. No date has been set yet for the conference but under terms of the Korean armistice it should convene before Oct. 28. The United States, which bore chief responsibility for the unified command in the Korean fighting, was asked to consult the interested nations as to the time and place for the meeting. In addition to the reported South Korean choice of San Francisco or Honolulu, Geneva, Switzerland; Beirut, Lebanon; Stockholm, Swe- den; and Ceylon have been men- tioned as possible sites. South Korean officials reportedly t want the conference held in United I States territory in order to keep I the Korean question before the American people. They were re- I presented as fearing that if the i meeting were convened in some (other country the U. S. public might tend to forget. U. S. Loses Move The Assembly adjournment came at p.m. EST after the United States lost a move to delay the opening of the next session, set for Sept. 15. Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., chief U. S. delegate, wanted the gathering postponed until Sept. 129 to give delegates more time 'for preparation. An informal suggestion for the two-week delay, however, drew vigorous objections from Hammar- skjold. The secretary-general said such a move would cost the inter- national organization a lot of money since extra help already has been hired to start work Sept. 15. Swedish and Australian repre- sentatives also voiced opposition to the proposal and the suggestion was dropped. Fire at i White Bear Lake WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn.

Shattered Glass Shatters Nerves GREENVILLE, S. C. G. French brought his truck to a jarring halt here when he heard a sharp explosion. Shattered glass was strewn about the truck but French could find nothing the truck might have hit. Then he looked up a street lamp over his vehicle was minus its large glass globe. The globe had shaken loose from its mounting just as the truck passed under it. French drove on, shattered glass, shattered nerves and all. ments of swine which have been fed cooked garbage.

Tough American sergeants who were separated from their men in North Korean prison camps be- cause of their outspoken resistance to Communism began coming home today. Among the 145 Americans freed today at Panmunjom were 36 non- commissioned officers from the sergeants' compound at Camp 3, Chongsong. North Korea. M. Sgt. James C. Goelzer, 37, of New Albany, Ind., who was cap- tured six days after U. S.. ground troops went into action in Korea in July, 1950, said: "As long as the sergeants were allowed to stay with their men, the Communists had no success preaching their propaganda." Two Australian officers, three Turks, and 250 South Koreans also were returned. One Australian, a Mustang pilot, was the first Australian airman captured. The Allies returned North Koreans. The Reds promised to return 110 more Americans Sunday, as well ar 250 South Koreans, 25 British, 4 Turks, 5 Filipinos, 3 French and 3 South Africans, a total of 400 on Scientists Still Seeking 'Gravity Shield' NEW BOSTON, N. H. W. Babson said today he still hopes a gravity deflector will be developed that will make super- aircraft not enable people to whoosh through the air by themselves, as some do in comic books. The 78-year-old statistician and one-time Prohibition party presi- dential candidate told his Gravity Research Foundation one practical use for a gravity insulator would be lightening the packs soldiers have to carry. He said in a speech prepared for the foundation's annual meet- ing that scientists working with it think some sort of gravity shield, perhaps an alloy still to be discov- ered, may some day be used to reduce the weight of hermetically enclosed objects, "If a partial deflector of gravity waves could be discovered, this would be a great boon to our Babson continued. "The first army which has the benefit of such 'weightless' packs might make great progress in the early part of a conflict. "The ultimate goal would be totally enclosed pressurized air- planes. The partial reduction of the weight of these would revolu- tionize their use both in war and peace." Babson established the research foundation here several years ago to further scientific studies of tne earth's gravitational pulL ;
