Such newspapers as the Times, Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph did not even mention Group Capt. Peter Townsend in connection with the decision to amend the regency' laws.

TUCKMAN PANMUNJOM and Communist officers worked on final details of a Korean truce today and then recessed indefinitely as an advance party of Swiss and Swedish members of a commission which will supervise an armistice arrived in Korea. There was mounting speculation that the long-awaited armistice ending more than three _years of bloodshed on this battered penin- sula would come soon despite renewed South Korean opposition. There were persistent re- ports that the historic docu- ment ending the fighting could be signed within 72 hours. Four Swiss and four Swedish members of the Neutral Nations Armistice Commission flew to Seoul from Tokyo and were hustled to the U. N. advance camp at Munsan by helicopter, A cordon of military police sur- rounded the plane as it landed. No one was allowed to talk with the party and their names and positions on the commission were not revealed. The armistice commission mem- bers landed in Korea as Allied and Red liaison officers huddled secret- ly here. The officers, who arrange meetings of the full truce delega- tions, met for an hour and 44 min- utes, then recessed without sched- uling another session. Could Set Truce Date The liaison officers could set a tentative date for signing a truce, then call a meeting of tbe full I delegations to approve it. Earlier in the day staff officers conferred for 2 hours and 42 min- utes, then recessed without sched- uling another session. It was an- nounced that the next meeting would be set by liaison officers. There was no word what details Dentist Drowns As Boat With 3 Aboard Capsizes TOWER, Minn.

(AP Wirephoto) South Korea will follow its own course of action unless the Reds agree within six months after a truce is signed to evacuate North Korea. The Reds said an armistice was endangered but indicated a truce was still possible. And Communist workmen continued work on a new building for the armistice signing ceremonies. On a visit to the battlefront dur- ing the day, Rhee told Associated Press Correspondent John Ran- dolph he would not obstruct an j armistice "under certain condi- I tions." "If we can see our way to sur- vive, we can reach he said. "But if we cannot see our way to survive that is a different thing." Can't Survive Divided The old statesman has said many times his nation cannot survive divided and with Chinese Commu- nist troops in the North. Before ..Rhee left Seoul for the front, he talked for 55 minutes with U. S. Ambassador Ellis 0. Briggs. Briggs delivered a message released in Washington by U. S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. The statement said the United States presumed Rhee would abide by assurances that he would not impede an armistice. A high South Korean source said late today that a II. S. State De- partment note delivered to Rhee yesterday was "quite unsatisfac- tory." The source, who asked not to be identified, said the letter failed to give satisfactory answers to ques- tions raised by South Korea dur- ing talks last month between Rhee and Asst.
