Truce in Korean War May Movie Tax Repeal Puts Ike on Spot WASHINGTON President Eisenhower was put squarely on the spot today by Congress' passage of a bill to repeal the 20 per cent tax on movie theater tickets. If he signs the bill, the estimated net loss in federal revenue will be 100 million dollars a year and other industries may ask for similar tax relief. If he vetoes it, he will be rejecting a bill which won support of Senate Leader Knowland of California and Sen. Millikin TODAY chairman of the conference of all GOP senators. Knowland, like Vice President Dixon, hails from California, heart of the motion picture industry. The House and Senate which acted yesterday, passed it by over- whelming voice votes.

They said lack of storage is threatening to undermine the farm price support programs. Sen. Murray (D-Mont) told his colleagues the spot cash price of wheat now is 50 to 75 cents below the support price. "But the farmer cannot get stor- age for his crop so he has no alter- native but to sell at the depressed the Montanan said.

(AP Wirephoto to The Republican-Herald) Rhee sent Dulles Friday. The message was delivered by U. S. Ambassador Ellis 0. Briggs, who would say only that it "con- cerns the recent negotiations we have been having the past few days." An authoritative South Korean j source said Rhee asked what defi- nite moves the United States would make if a post-armistice political conference failed to unify Korea. Briggs was in Rhee's presiden- tial mansion 25 minutes Saturday. The meeting was the fourth in many days. At United Nations headquarters in New York, General Assembly President Lester B. Pearson Canada said he would act within 24 hours of an armistice to call the Assembly into session. Pearson said he had reason to believe a truce would be signed in the next day or two. Truce officers here worked at feverish pace on the final details of a cease-fire. There were reports that plans for exchanging nearly prison- ers of war had been approved, leaving only minor details to wrap up. The U. N. Command scored a minor victory Saturday when the Reds pulled big Communist peace doves from above the three entrances to Armistice straw mat-covered building erected by the Communists for the signing ceremonies.
