the United Nations to support the American sponsored resolution

an armistice in Korea worthy of the sacrifices made by countless
individuals in the struggle to throw back aggression."
Three main comDromise efforts in the Korean crisis are ex

creation of a new U.N. commission to settle the war prisoner ques
