U. N. ADVANCE HEADQUAR
TERS, Korea, July 26.—Allied and
Red delegates agreed today on the
exact limits of Korean armistice
negotiations.
United Nations spokesmen said
negotiators approved a five-point

peals for World Peace Pact. Page A-6
program and immediately dis*
posed of the first item. A Com
munist spokesman heralded this
as a “progressive move toward an
armistice.”
But a U. N. announcement cau
tioned: (1) Delegates are far
apart on the remaining four
points: (2) Nobody knows how
long it will take for them to agree,
and (3) shooting will continue
until an armistice is signed.
Five Points Listed.
Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway’s
headquarters announced that the
five-point agenda (list of subjects
to be debated) covers:
1. Adoption of agenda. (They
did that in the first nine minutes
of today’s session.)
2. Deciding where to draw the
truce line and establishing a buffer
zone between opposing armies.
3. Concrete arrangements to
end the shooting and supervise
the truce.
4. Arrangements for exchange
of prisoners.
5. “Recommendations to the
governments of the countries con
cerned on both sides.” (The Com
munist demand for withdrawal of
foreign troops from Korea comes
under this heading.)
Session Very Brief.
Negotiators agreed on the agen
da in the shortest session they
have yet held. It lasted only 68
minutes.
“Preliminary discussions began
immediately after the agreement
on the agenda,” Gen. Ridgway’s
headquarters announced.
They will go into it more deeply
in the 11th session, scheduled for
10 a.m. tomorrow (8 p.m. EDT
today).
The announcement emphasized
that agreement on the agenda “is
merely the initial step for the final
goal of a military armistice and
resultant cease-fire.”
The second and third points
listed on the agenda offered the
biggest hurdles that negotiators
will have to overcome.
The first point, adoption of the
agenda, is a routine matter similar
to approval of minutes of a pre
ceding session.
Demarcation Line Question Raised.
Setting a buffer zone raises the
question of whether it is to be
along the present lines in North
Korea, as the U. N. wishes, or
along the 38th Parallel as the Reds
want.
These two possible demarcation
lines are 20 or 30 miles apart in
some places.
In settling this single point, ne
gotiators will outline the exact
position to be assumed by each
army “so as to establish a demili
tarized zone as the basic condition
for cessation of hostilities in
Korea.”
The third point is the most
complex and reaches to the heart
of Communist sensitiveness to any
foreign groups acting as supervis

Ridgway Text on Agreement
# By the Associated Press
U. N. ADVANCE HEADQUARTERS, Korea, July
26.—Following is the text of Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway’s
announcement that cease-fire negotiators agreed today
on an agenda:
This afternoon the delegations representing the
belligerent forces in Korea in the conference at Kaesong
agreed upon an agenda for the regulation of the military
armistice conference.
This agenda is as follows:
1. Adoption of agenda.
2. Fixing a military demarcation line between both
sides so as to establish a demilitarized zone as a basic
condition for a cessation of hostilities in Korea.
3. Concrete arrangements for the realization of
cease-fire and an armistice in Korea, including the com
position, authority and functions of a supervising
organization for carrying out the terms of a cease-fire
and armistice.
4. Arrangements relating to prisoners of war.
5. Recommendations to the governments of the
countries concerned on both sides.
Having agreed upon an agenda, the way now is
clear for the delegations to enter the area of really
substantive discussion of the terms of a military
armistice. Major problems remain to be solved in these
discussions. It is much too early to predict either the
I success or the rate of progress to be obtained. Prelim
inary discussion began immediately after the agreement
on the agenda in order that the potential for halting
bloodshed in Korea may be realized as soon as possible.
It must be fully realized that mutual acceptance of
an agenda is merely the initial step for the final goal of
a military armistice and resultant cease-fire, which
must be achieved under conditions giving every reason
able assurance against the resumption of hostilities.
There are numerous basic points within the frame
work of the agenda on which agreement must be
reached and on which there is presently wide diversion
i of views.
Firm Action on Korea
Averted World War,
President Believes
U. N. Defense of Nation
Curbed Red Aggressors,

President Truman told Congress!
today that the firm action by the
United Nations against “treacher
ous” aggression in Korea may
have headed off a new world war.
“There is much to indicate that
the resolute resistance of United

Nations troops has given pause to
those aggressive forces which
cold-bloodedly brought tragedy to
Korea,” he asserted.
“Thousands of men have there
fore sacrificed their lives in Korea
to the end that millions may not
lose their lives in a world war,”
the President said in a letter
transmitting to Congress a report
on United States participation in
the U. N. during 1950
Covering developments only up
to last December 31, the report
and the President’s letter made

Record of Solidarity.
Mr. Truman described the re
port as “a record of decision and
action in the face of danger” and
(“for the most part a record of
(solidarity among United Nations
members against aggression.”
He said there was no doubt that
the Communist aggressors against
South Korea believed the U. N.
would not intervene effectively.
It is probable, he added, that one
of the purposes of the attack was
to break down any possibility of
U. N. action against aggression in
the future.
In meeting the assault squarely,
|the President declared, the U. N.
“ elected to act now rather than to
; drift passively once more down
the fatal trail of failure to oppose
(aggression which leads finally to
total war.”
He termed the U. N. action

Big Foreign Aid Funds
Will Be Needed for
Years, Acheson Says
Truce Negotiations Won't
Affect Basic Facts,
He Says at Hearing
By Cecil Holland
Secretary of State Acheson said
today very large foreign aid ap
propriations will be required “for
at least the next several years”
and warned that the present ar
mistice negotiations in Korea will
not affect “that fundamental
fact.”
“Day-to-day changes in the
news from Korea do not change
the basic situation,” Mr. Acheson
declared. “The danger is no less
real than it waS a month ago.
The strategy of the Kremlin is
still the same.”
Secretary Acheson testified as
the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee began hearings on the
administration’s request for an
$8.5 billion foreign military and
economic aid program. The pro
posed outlay is a part of this
Government’s program for com
batting communism on a global
basis.
For Building Up Forces.
Mr. Acheson said the Commu
nists have been building up their
forces during the peace negotia
tions at Kaesong, in Korea, for a
major assault in the event the
armistice talks should collapse.
“The discussions at Kaesong
thus far,” the Secretary added,
“have not yet produced agreement
as to any points of substance
which are essential to a satis
factory armistice.”
Secretary Acheson made this
statement in his prepared opening
remarks despite the announce
ment from Gen. Matthew B. Ridg
way. the United Nations com
mander in Korea, that an agree
ment had been reached with the
Communists on exactly what
should be discussed in the armis
tice negotiations. Mr. Acheson
told reporters before he began
testifying that he had no comment
on the Ridgway announcement.
Mr. Acheson emphasized anew

I
Officials Here
Voice Cautious
Optimism
By John M. Hightower
Associated Press Staff Writer
Military and diplomatic officials
here consider that United Nations
negotiators got everything they
sought in the first round of the
Korean armistice talks without!
making any concessions on vital;
issues.
In fact it was the Communists;
who gave ground by backing down^
twice from positions they had
taken.
Yet despite these initial sue-!
cesses, responsible officials here
are only mildly optimistic about
the chances that the negotiations
w ill actually produce an armistice.
Many difficult problems remain to
be solved in the round now start
ing.
Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway’s an
nouncement of the agreement on
an agenda noted there are nu
merous basic points on which
there is “presently wide diversion
of views" between the Reds and
the U. N. command. That cau
tionary note is fully indorsed here
by officials familiar with all the
problems facing the negotiators. '
May Take Another Month.
Some authorities believe it may
be as much as a month before the
negotiations are concluded, and
said it must still be determined
how high a price the Reds are
willing to pay in what Washington
considers “real concessions” in
order to end the fighting.
The two most serious problems
now foreseen here are those hav
ing to do with the mapping out
of a buffer zone between the
0/>MM TT _• «
vv».u»v.iHuv uiiu v. ai. amuto, auu
with the arrangements for super
vision, or enforcement, of an
armistice once it is established.
The agreement on an agenda
was possible only because the
Reds abandoned yesterday their
previously insistent demand for
an agreement, prior to an armi
stice, on removal of all foreign
troops from Korea. That broke
the week-long deadlock of the
Kaesong meetings.
The price the United Nations;
paid for this apparently is cov
ered in Point 6 of the agenda.
The point provides that the nego
tiators can later make recom
mendations to the governments
on both sides.
In Line With Basic Policy.
It is understood that in ac
cepting the modified Red proposal
on the troop withdrawal issue, the
United Nations agreed to discuss
arrangements for coming to
grips, after an armistice, with
the whole problem of withdrawal
of outside forces from the Korean
peninsula.
This was in line with the basic
American policy position that
troops would be pulled*out some!
day but no time could be fixed
now.
Previously, the Communists had
given in on a procedural point
when they agreed that the area
where the talks are held at Kae
song should be treated as neutral
territory. They agree, too, that
Gen. Ridgway’s right to send any i
one he wished, including newsmen,
into this area, was beyond ques
tion.
When Gen. Ridgway went into
the truce talks, according to in
formants here, he had instructions
to seek in the first instance sub
stantially the agenda now adopted.
This provides for discussion of
the demarcation line, armistice
arrangements and prisoner of war
arrangements without commiting
either side to any particular line
of action. The real arguments
therefore are now to begin.
_: it_i_1,_l
vvxxxivvvxuti nun uxiu luvavivll
of the buffer zone, the Reds have
made clear they will insist that
it be precisely on the 38th Parallel.
Gen. Ridgway’s instructions are to
work it out along the present bat
tle line—most north of the paral
lel. Argument on this could go
on for many days.
As to enforcement of armistice
terms, Gen Ridgway has instruc
tions to seek a firm system of in
spection all over Korea by inter
national truce teams. The argu
ment runs that this would make
preparation of a surprise attack
or other truce violations by either
side impossible.
On the third point of sub
stance, arranging for exchange of
prisoners of war, the difficulty will
come over the ratio of exchange.
However, many more Communists
are held prisoner by the U. N.
forces than the other way around.
A one-for-one exchange would
free all U. N. troops held captive
without freeing all Red soldiers.
So it is expected that the Com
munist negotiators will insistently
demand, an agreement for each
side to release all its prisoners.

Justice Department Rounds Up
11 Secondary Communists
Arrests Include That of California Chairman
Called to Top Party Post in New York
By the Associated Prest
The Justice Department today
launched a new roundup of sec
ondary Communist Party leaders
in Los Angeles, San Francisco and
New York.
The department announced 11
arrests have been made.
FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover
said those arrested have been ac
tive in Communist Party work,
largely in California.
The new move against party
leaders followed the arrests of 17
Eastern Seaboard Communists last
month.
All of those taken are accused
of conspiracy to teach and advo
cate the violent overthrow of the
United States Government.
This is the charge on which 11
top officials of the party were
convicted and given sentences
ranging from three to five years.
Four of these top officials are
now listed as fugitivies from jus
tice because they failed to sur
render for imprisonment after
their convictions were upheld by
the Supreme Court. In addition,
the FBI is seeking four others
who slipped through the dragnet
when the 17 arrests were made in
New York City and Pittsburgh on
June 20.
Among those arrested today
was William Schneiderman, chair
man of the California Communist
State Committee and a member
of the party’s Alternate National
Committee.

Capital Transit Net
5 Times a Year Ago;
Passes to Be Kept
Directors Also Study
Plan for Listing Stock
On New York Exchange
By Donald B. Hadley
Capital Transit Co. today re
ported earnings for the first half
of this year were more than five
times a year ago and its board
of directors decided to continue
the weekly pass as part of the
company’s fare structure.
President J. A. B. Broadwater
announced that directors took
cognizance of the many requests
of its patrons that the pass be
included in any petition to the
Public Utilities Commission for a
rate increase. “The management
will see that the weekly pass Is
continued.” he said.
New York Stock Listing Studied.
Mr. Broadwater also announced
that directors had considered
steps for the listing of the com
pany’s stock on the New York
Stock Exchange and approved
the redemption of another $1 mil
lion of the company’s first and
refunding 4 per cent bonds.
Net income of Capital Transit
itself rose to *925,262 in the first
six months of this year in con
trast to *170.385 in the same 1950
period, Mr. Broadwater an
nounced.
Including subsidiaries, the
Montgomery buslines and Glen
Echo Park Co., the six months’
consolidated net income was
$960,129 or *4 a share, compares
with $207,916 or 87 cents a year
earlier, an increase of 362 per
cent.
Jane income Soars.
June net income of the parent
company soared to $164,704, com
pared with $40,482 in June, 1950,
while the consolidated net was
$202,637 or 84 cents a share was
151 per cent ahead of $80,704 or
34 cents a share in the same 1950
period.
Capital Transit shares already
are listed on the New York Curb
Exchange. A proposed 4-for-l
splitup in the shares, still await
ing approval of the District Pub
lic Utilities Commission, would
increase the present 240,000 shares
to 960,000 and meet requirements
for the new listing which the di

Judge Cockrill
Favors Easing
Of Records Ban
Juvenile Court Jurist
At Odds With Other
Witnesses on Methods
By Miriam Ottenberg
Eight witnesses, including Juve
nile Court Judge Edith H. Cockrill,
testified today in favor of legisla
tion to make Juvenile Court rec
ords available to other agencies,
but they differed on how the pres
ent law should be amended.
After an hour-long hearing be
fore the judiciary subcommittee
of the Senate District Committee,
Senator Johnston, Democrat, of
South Carolina, subcommittee
chairman, said he too thought
new legislation was needed. The
details of the new act, he said,
will depend on what comes out
of an executive session of his sub
committee after the other mem
bers read the minutes. He sat
j alone ir today’s hearing.
Judge Urges Ample Study.
Although some of the witnesses
urged immediate action to get a
law that will, in effect, lift Judge
Cockrill's information ban, the
judge herself took this position:
“While I trust that this can be
accomplished promptly, I should
hope that ample study and con
sideration will be given to the
problems and principles involved.
The real facts in the situation
certainly do not warrant emer
gency or hasty, ill-considered
action.’’
The hearing steered clear of the
controversy that has swirled
around Juvenile Court since Judge
Cockrill shut off information and
her policies brought resignations
from three ranking court officials.
Two of the resigned officers. Miss
Helaine A. Todd, former director
of social work, and Mrs. Grace W.
Bell, former case supervisor, at
tended today’s hearing but did not
testify.
jonnston commends witnesses.
Apparently fearing that the
court controversy would get into
the hearing, Senator Johnston
said at the outset that he hoped
; that the witnesses would 6tick to
the facts involved in the question
whether a new law was needed. At
the end of the hearing, he com
mended the witnesses for "staying
on the main issue.”
Judge Cockrill herself came
closest to recognizing orally that
jthe court has been the target of
| considerable criticism. In urging
■that court hearings be opened to
! visitors with “a legitimate interest
in the case or the work of the
j court,” Judge Cockrill said the
court needed community support
iand confidence to operate effec
| tively. She said this was not pos
sible unless the community,
: through responsible channels, can
have direct and accurate' informa
jtion on the court’s operation.
Need for Information Cited.
"Lack of information, misin
| formation, half-truths and specu
lation as to the court’s operation
I has in the past been very detri
Imental to*he court,” she said.
"The court should not and does
not have any reason to shield its
operation beyond that of protect
ing the interests of the children
before it and it should not be sub
jected to criticism before the pub
lic unless the public can have
some intelligent and accurate
means of passing on the validity
of the criticism.”
The bill proposed by the Com
missioners specifically provides
that the Board of Public Welfare
and its employes shall be entitled
to Inspect the social record of tha
court, which includes background
information. The Judge in her
discretion could make social in
formation available to other in
terested persons or agencies.
