Names In The News
By CHARLES GOMON
Staff News Writer
VICE ADM. C. TURNER JOY, chief UN negotiator at the
Panmunjom, Korea truce talks, asked for a full-membership ses
sion of the truce committee and the head Communist delegate,
North Korean Gen. Nam II, accepted.
For the first time in two months a full-dress meeting will be
held. Since Feb. 19 staff officers from both sides have been at
tempting to iron out differences in the respective stands. These
talks "got nowhere, so the high level group will try again. ,
GEN. MATHEW B. RIDGWAY, supreme allied commander
in Korea, spoke in Japan on the question of repatriation of pri
soners. The Reds demand the forced return of all Communist
prisoners, some 40 per cent of which do not want to go back to
Ridgway insisted that these men should not be forced to
return, and that this position would be the basis of "any further
A major propaganda victory for the U.S. may be in the mak
ing since Ridgway's stand marks the first time in the history
of the white-man in Asia that an occidental nation has shown
a willingness to risk some of its own people for the freedom of
a group of Asiatics.
MOHAMED MOSSADEGH, prime minister of Iran, pledged
that his country would support the UN, build up its own mili
tary strength, and defend itself against attack "from any direc
tion." On the basis of the promise the U.S. will resume arms ship
ments to this oil-rich Middle-eastern state. Shipments were
stopped on Jan. 8, the deadline for nations to comply with a
Mutual Security Administration ruling that they would help
build the "defense strength of the free world."'
Mossedegh wasn't keen about accepting this condition. He
complained that such a commitment would violate Iran's neu
trality. Iran borders on the Soviet Union. After an exchange
of notes between governments, Mossedegh was apparently more
satisfied with the conditions.
LOUISE SPRINGER of Chicago went to six different den
tists and, while they bent .over her with the drill, picked their
pockets for a total take of $2,000.
