Threatens to Send Yugoslav Units to Border Note Fourth to Italians Since Maneuvers Began By ALEX SINGLETON BELGRADE, Yugoslavia Iff) Yugoslavia threatened officially to- day to send troops to the Italian- Yugoslav frontier unless Italy ends her maneuvers, termed a "mili- tary in that area. The warning was contained in a note the fourth in three days sent by President Marshal Tito'f government to Italy's Foreign Min- istry in Rome as a result of new tension in the seven-year-old feud between the two nations over the future, of the Free Territory of Trieste. "If the Yugoslav government es- tablishes that the Italian govern- ment continues to adhere to tht abnormal situation on the the note said, "it will be forced to undertake corresponding mea- sures on its territory." March in This means Yugoslavia plans to march in troops to back up her frontier guards in the Gorizia re- gion, north of Trieste, unless Italy withdraws the forces on the oppo- site side of the frontier there. The note described as unsatis- factory Italy's rejection of previous Yugoslav complaints con- cerning border incidents of the past week. The Yugoslavs say Italy had two divisions (perhaps to men) in the area and Italian de- tachments twice have strayed onto Yugoslav soil. The note protested Italy's action in undertaking a military demon- stration along the border "when normal diplomatic channels exist through which an explanation could have been sought about between the two countries." (In Eome, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said "There has been no military demonstration on the Yugoslav border." Italy the maneuvers are strictly rou- tine.) In both government and diplo- matic circles of Belgrade, the the- ory was advanced that the new government of Premier Giuseppe Fella has seized upon the Trieste issue to sidetrack Italian over domestic affairs. General Reaction That was the general reaction of the Yugoslav press, too. President Tito's government ap- parently seeks a showdown on the whole Trieste question. He is ex- pected to outline Yugoslavia's posi- tion in a major speech Sunday. The Belgrade Radio charged that Italian engineering units are build- ing pillboxes and other strongholds near Yugoslavia, in violation of a peace treaty clause banning mili- tary installations within 20 kilo- meters (about 12 miles) of the I frontier. (The Italian news agency ANSA i said a Yugoslav plane violated the border north of Trieste Thursday, flying over the Italian town of iSalcano.) Gen. Mark Clark, U.N. Far East commander, flew from his Tokyo headquarters to greet the return- ing soldier. Spokesmen said Dean would be flown to Japan Saturday after a checkup at a military hospital in Seoul. la a ceremony at the hospital, President Syngman Rhee personal- ly pinned on Dean's chest South Korea's highest military award, the Taeguk Medal with gold star. The 275 Americans coming back Saturday will be by far the largest number returned on any single day. They will bring the total of Americans returned to well above the the Reds promised before the exchange began Aug. 4. And there may be more Americans in the final day's exchange Sunday. The Reds have not given any fig- ures for that delivery. Seven U.S. sergeants returning Friday estimated there were still between 450 and 500 Americans in Falls Soldier In Action7 in BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. the end of hos- tilities in Korea over a month ago, telegrams reading "We regret to inform you. are still being re- ceived by families of area serv- icemen. This week, Mr. and Mrs. Bert Sanford and Mrs. Archie Sanford, were informed by the Department of Defense that Pfc. Archie San- ford has been missing in action since Aug. 21 in the Philippine Is- lands. The 22-year-old soldier was serv- ing with a survey crew of the 29th engineer base topographic batta- lion at Bolos Point, Cagayan Prov- ince, Lueow in the Philippines. He was reported missing exact- ly a year after he left the United States with the 85th transportation company. Sanford had written that his unit lived aboard the transport boat and was engaged in surveying the jun- gles for air bases. He also men- tioned guerilla skirmishes with the Huks. 'Missing Philippines (The Hukbalahap is a Commu- nist-supported faction that has staged an active armed revolt since the establishment of the Republic of the Philippines.) Sanford is a 1949 graduate of Black River Falls High School and attended La Crosse State Teachers College before joining the produce business with his father. He entered the service in Jan- uary, 1952 and married Miss Shiela Hanson in August of 1952, just 17 days before going overseas. The telegrams received'by the parents and wife of the soldier stat- ed that additional information would be sent to the family and, that a confirming letter would fol- low. No letter has been received as yet. So the Sanfords are attempting to secure further information on the soldier, who last wrote to them Aug. 9. They contacted the Red Cross, and are now seeking cor- respondence with relatives of men with the 29th engineer base in the Philippines.
