TODAY Satellite Hatred Intense By STEWART ALSOP VIENNA A sullen, numb, yet ferocious hatred for the Soviet pup- pet regimes 'is now unquestionably the chief political characteristic of all the satellite states. In trying to understand the real meaning of this phenomenon of mass hatred, two facts are important. First, short of a war, there can be no really effective, organized, centrally directed resistance move- ment in the satellites, as long as the Red army supplies the Soviet and satellite police apparatus with the essential ingredient of naked In Czechoslovakia, there been no less than 48 Yesterday was the first day of serious reports on the 63-year-old Ohio Republican, who has been at the hospital for several weeks for treatment of a hip lesion. His wife Martha was brought to his bedside yesterday for her first visit to him since he entered the hospital. The day also marked the first time the hospital had issued more than one bulletin on his con- dition. Besides Mrs. Taft, the senator was visited by two of their sons, Lloyd- and Robert Jr., yesterday and last night. A third son, William Hoard Taft III, American ambassador to Ire- land, said in Dublin last night that the last word he had was a tele- phone call from a brother Sunday saying the senator was improving. The ambassador said that in any event he did not intend to return to the United States until he had later news today. Taft's sudden turn for the worse stirred speculation in Washington concerning changes in the national political scene if his illness should force him out of the Senate per- manently.

These cells pro- vided the leadership for the re- volts in the Soviet zone. Yet they lacked any concerted plan, any arms, or any central direction, oth- er than that provided by RIAS, the American radio station in Ber- lin.

Defense Budget Set in Congress At Billion Approval Indicated Before Congress Quits This Weekend By EDWIN B. HAAKINSON WASHINGTON leaders driving for adjournment this weekend ticketed for quick ap- proval in the House and Senate to- day the biggest money bill of the session, a defense budget of The figure was a compromise reached late yesterday by a Senate- House conference committee which ironed out some 50 differences in versions of the bill passed earlier by the two branches. The group accomplished the rare congressional feat of agreeing to a total that was about 62Vi million dollars below that originally voted by the House and nearly 140 mil- lions less than voted by the Senate. The usual practice is to arrive at a figure between the two. Final Action Final action was planned today, first by the House and then by the f 2nate, to send the bill to the White House. The total it carries is about billion dollars less than Presi- dent Eisenhower asked and more than six billions below the budget recommendations of former Presi- dent Truman. I the 13 regular money bills Congress must pass to run the government in the fiscal year which started July 1 are still in Congress. Eight have been sent to the White House of them yesterday, carry- ing funds for the Labor and Wel- fare departments, for a score of non-departmental agencies, and for the District of Columbia. Three of the money bills have not yet passed the Senate; the re- iraining ones are in the process of being compromised. Still to pass the Senate are appropriations for foreign aid, slated for action today, for Congress itself, and for a num- ber of miscellaneous agencies in- cluding the Voice of America and j Civil Defense. Foreign Aid Bill The foreign aid bill was slated to follow Senate action on an emer- gency immigration measure, on the administration's "must" list. The House passed its version last night.

After the war, the Soviets embarked on a pro- gram of ruthless satellite in- dustrialization and exploitation. In cold hard terms of guns and steel, this program has paid off hand- somely.

To meet the Kremlin's demands, the satellite pro-consuls have been forced to ex- polit their labor force in a manner to bring a blush to the cheek of the most hard-hearted 19th century industrialist. The Kremlin has thus, as it were, paid for guns with haired. While the Red army holds East- ern Europe, the Kremlin can make the bargain stick. But the price is certainly a heavy one. Although there are now no effective resist- ance movements in Eastern Eur- ope, the human material for such movements certainly exists. In the event of in the unlikely event that the United States de- cides on a preventive showdown with the Soviet human material could certainly be used. The Soviets themselves are clearly aware of this possibility, as their constant outcry about "imperialist provocateurs" sug- gests. Moreover, the Soviets must now also be aware that their satel- lite "peoples' armies" are doubt- fully loyal.

Armies Withdraw Before Deadline By ROBERT B. TUCKMAN SEOUL withdrawal of two mighty armies from the Ko- rean demilitarized zone continued smoothly today as the Thursday night deadline approached. Enemies a few days ago, Allied and Communist troops worked within shouting distance of each other, salvaging material and wrecking fortifications that took months, sometimes years, to build. Although Allied troops were warned by the 8th Army against fraternization with the Reds, there were reports of friendly contacts all aiong the war-shattered front. Under terms of the armistice signed Monday, both sides arc to have pulled back V-A miles each from the truce line by 10 p. m. Thursday (8 a. m. days after the cease-fire.

Hungry Throngs Continue to Surge to West Harassed Communists Trying to Halt U. S. Relief Program BERLIN Communist police arrested scores of East Germans who accepted gifts of Western food today but they failed to check the hungry throngs surging through the Iron Curtain. The biggest crowds yet jammed West Berlin's food relief centers on the third day of the big Ameri- can-financed relief program which has put the spotlight on food short- ages in the restive Soviet occupa- tion zone.

The Reds made the charges at today's second meeting of the joint Korean Armistice Commission. They asserted three aircraft flew over the demilitarized buffer zone, and that four artillery rounds and one burst of three machine-gun bullets were fired after the cease-' fire became effective. U. S. Maj. Gen. Blackshear M. Bryan, chief Allied commissioner, disclosed after today's 1-hour, 2- minute meeting that the charges were lodged by his Communist counterpart, North Korean Lt. Gen. Lee Sang Cho. The commission recessed until 11 a, m. Thurs- day. "We were accused this morn- Bryan said. "These were allegations, broad- and general, and nothing serious.

Air Shipment Meanwhile, the first air ship- ment of American relief food ar- rived in Berlin this morning. It consisted of pounds aboard a regular Pan-American plane from Hamburg. The food was the first delivery of a 15 million dollar stock being sent by the United States to replenish West Berlin's emergency food stocks now being depleted by free distributions to the hungry East Germans. In West Berlin, meanwhile, the biggest crowds yet thronged across the Iron Curtain border for the third day of the distribution of free food parcels. Stepping up efforts to stem the rush for free Western food, the So- viet zone radio implied today that East Germans getting the food faced arrest as spies. It broadcast hourly the names and addresses of food recipients. And it charged they were being recruited as fu- ture agents by Western espionage experts. The intent of the radio name- calling was warn East Germans they risk arrest as West- tern agents if they persist in corn- ing to the West for aid. But the trek of the hungry con- tinued on a massive scale. Long lines again formed at the 40 West Although American GFs and oth- er United Nations forces were un-____ der orders to avoid the Reds, there Berlin food distribution points were reports of contacts and injfore dawn in preparation for the some cases exchange of foods, cig-' arets and souvenirs.

A news correspondent told of an incident at Outpost Heddy on the Western Front where Chinese pre- sented him with a red and gold "peace dove" insignia inscribed with English words "We demand peace." He reported the Chinese passed! out the small emblems to Marines! working in the area. South Korean forces, who manned two-thirds of the battleline, were pulling back in orderly fashion.

Dulles Blocks Deal With Reds On Unification WASHINGTON of State Dulles has virtually elim- inated the possibility of making a deal with the Reds for unification of Korea. Instead, he appeared to be shap- ing a policy similar to that of the West towards to principles, counting on the attraction exerted by the free world on Communist satellites, and constantly keeping open the possi- bility of unification. As applied to the Korean situa- j ed agreement on marking tion, such a policy contemplates f e, bcredentials. aircraft All Swiss members and some Swedish members arrived in Mun- san today and Maj. Gen. Sven Grafstrom, head of the Swedish: team, said the neutral inspection teams would be ready to start work soon. He said a meeting with Polish and Czech members will be held in Panmunjom within a few days. The final swap in the compli- cated signing of the Korean armi- stice documents took place at Pan- munjom today. The documents were first signed in the Oriental-style hall here Monday by senior truce negotia- tors from each-side. Half of the 18 copies were taken to Munsan for the signature of Gen. Mark W. Clark and half to North Korea for the signatures the Red high commanders. Next, the documents had to be swapped again so the top com- manders could sign the set already bearing the other side's signatures. In today's armistice commission conference, the Allies presented the Reds a proposal for civil shipping on the Han River Estu- ary. The U, N. also turned over failure of the forthcoming political conference to achieve Korean uni- fication. Thus it sharpens the problem of what to do about South Korean President Syngman Rhee's Western police said a Commu- nist attempt to incite West Berlin jobless to riot against the give- away food program for Eastern needy was doomed to failure. Some Red agents scattered leaf- lets late yesterday in front of West Berlin labor offices with phony instructions for the West Berlin unemployed to show up for free food today at points which have been supplying the Easterners. The leaflets copied the format of midget throwaway editions of the Telegraf, West Berlin Socialist newspaper. Police said the relief program was so well known in West Berlin that few, if any, of the unemployed could be tricked into vainly going to the food distribution points. unity if it is not accomplished by agree- ment 90 days after the conference opens. Dulles will fly to Korea, leaving here next Sunday morning. One of his principal tasks well may be to try to persuade Rhee not to re- sume the war, whatever happens in the political meeting. Meeting reporters for the first time since the armistice, Dulles said yesterday: "As far as I personally am con- cerned, I think I have made it clear I would not be prepared on behalf of the United States to try to buy the unity of Korea at the price of a concession which would involve bringing Communist China into the United Nations and, above all, into the Security Council."
