Union of S.E.Asia Forming King Protests Council Stand Of Youngdahl Takes a Walk' Over Decision on Prospecting Permits St. Paul A decision on 53 iron ore prospecting permits still' was lacking today after State Aud- itor Stafford King "took a walk" from an executive council meeting where they were being considered. King left the session yesterday after a spirited discussion- with Governor Youngdahl. It was. prompted by a letter read to the! council by Chester S. Wilson, state conservation commissioner. In it, he asked further time for study before the bids were considered. He also suggested that high bid- ders be asked to submit their op- erating plans. The governor said he agreed with Wilson's views, whereupon King renewed words that have been passing between him and Youngdahl for the past several weeks. "This said King, "that the othfer members of the council will not be permitted to exercise their own judgment and can only decide whether to approve or dis- approve the governor's decisions. May I be excused. I see no reason for us being here." He left the meeting room before the session adjourned. Others Present Other council members present were Secretary of State Holm and State Treasurer Schmahl. Absent was Attorney General Burnquist. King took the position that coun-, cil members, all of them elected officials, have the same responsi- bility as the governor. He main- tained that Wilson should carry out the council's -wishes even if Young- dahl votes against them. In reply to a question after the meeting, King said: "It is not that I am jealous of my prerogatives. I like to live in a free country Red Advances May Determine Anticommunism British Recognition In China to Curb Resistance Moves radiant Elizabeth Sloan Simpson in a simple ceremony at St. Joseph's Catholic church. The Rev. Timothy J, Geary per- formed the ceremony which he de- scribed as "very simple and very Deautiful." The ceremony lasted eight min- utes. Both O'Dwyer and his bride were deeply moved and exchanged vows in voices hardly above a whisper. O'Dwyer's voice could not be heard in the first row. Miss Simpson spoke her vows in a slightly firmer voice. She stood erect and looked at the priest as he blessed the ring, first in Latin, then in English.

But it probably won't end up as the anti- communist front it started out to be. Sources close to President Elpi- dio Quirino said his original idea of a strong union to oppose the spread of communism in Asia has been watered down considerably. For this they cite two reasons: The red military sweep in China and the probable recognition of the Chinese communist regime by British Commonwealth nations. Quirino and Chiang Kai-shek, the No. 1 man of Nationalist China, drafted the basic framework for an Asian union at a meeting in Uie Philippines last July. Chiang later went to Korea to confer with President Syngman Rhee of the Republic of South Korea, who had been an enthusi- astic supporter of Quirino's origin- al proposal. The United States never warmed up to Quirino's suggestion that it be the keystone of a Pacific coun- terpart to the North Atlantic alli- ance. The TT. S. made it plain, how- ever, that the Asian countries were free to go ahead on their own with- out American underwriting. Later, the U. S. issued a white paper on China, writing off the Chiang Kai- shek regime as a failure. Quirino has been reported revis- ing the complexion of his proposal. It was described as noncommunist instead of antlcommunist. Chiang and Nationalist China were quietly eased out of the picture. Whether Chiang or the remnant Nationalist government will be In- vited to the meeting to the Philip- pines in March was not disclosed.
