Dean today proposed a "flexible" agenda to speed up talks for arranging a Ko- rean peace conference but the Communists immediately rejected it as of hand." The diplomats debated an hour and three minutes, got nowhere for the sixth straight day and called it quits until Monday. Dean told newsmen he was not depressed over the lack of head- way in his week of talks with the Communists to set up the Korean peace parley. He said he stilll feels the Reds want the conference and "It is not _ _ surprising that it has taken us some time to get shaken down on VV CSPOllS a working Dean proposed a "flexible or un- numbered agenda" under which the negotiators could slip around among various problems that must be settled before the political con- ference can convene. Two Navy fected 'Won't Anti-Red POWs Tel! Communists Only 20 of 430 Elect to Go Back After Explanation By JOHN RANDOLPH PANMUNJOM Long-defiant anti-Communist Korean War pris- oners marcherl from their com- pounds today and with shouts, kicks and screaming curses over- jwhelmingly told Communist ex- i plainers they will not go back to Red rule. By late afternoon only 20 of 430 North Koreans had elected to go j back to the Communists, an Indian spokesman said. The Koreans came out peace- fully to meet Red persuaders af- ter two weeks of negotiations with Lt. Gen. K. S. Thimayya, Indian chairman of the Neutral Nations Repatriatkn Commission. But once before the explainers, most of the POWs were anything but peaceful. As many as four Indian guards were assigned to each prisoner, but frequently this wasn't enough. One enraged prisoner broke free and hurled a folding chair into the faces of three smartly-uniformed explainers. All were slightly in- jured. Jn at least two instances prison- 1 ers kicked over field tables used j by the Communists. j Almost all of them screamed, I shouted and spat at the Commu- agents.

It is an exploration of the cases of 10 American ex-prisoners who repudiated "confessions" they said were made to fend off starvation and brutality, as well as of the cases of five airmen who defied Communist pressure. Filmed statements of the 15 men made to American interrogators upon their return from captivity, were released to the public by the Pentagon last night. In addition, there were four films made by the Communists of "con- fessions." These films reached American hands through propa- ganda channels. j WASHINGTON Marshall Plan for bringing war-shattered The idea that leading medical j Europe back to economic life is passing into history as Gen.

A host of over 3.000 Boy Scouts-, high school and college students, sportsmen and other interested persons was counted upon to comb the countryside this weekend on three sides of this town on the western border of Wisconsin for a trace of the 15-year-old girl who has been missing a week.
