Sparkman Says Truce Is Near If Reds Actually Want One By the Associated Press Senator Sparkman, Democrat, of Alabama said today that ne notiators are “very near” a truce in Korea—if the Communists actually want an armistice. Senator Sparkman, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Far Eastern Subcommittee and a former United Nations delegate, said in an interview he believes negotiations have reached the breaking point in Korea. “If the Communists want a truce, we are very near to it and we can get it,” the Alabama Sen ator declared. “Os course, no one really knows whether the Communists really want an armi stice or whether they are just stalling again.” He said he feels, however, that if the newest allied offer now being whipped into final form is rejected by the Reds, the nego tiations will be broken off quickly by the U. N. representatives— and he doesn’t know what would happen next. As the negotiations stand, there is only one issue at stake —the fate of 48,000 Communist prisoners who have said they don’t want to go back under Red domination. The Communists have suggest ed giving custody of these pris oners to a five-nation commis sion made up of Switzerland, Sweden, India, Poland and Czechoslovakia, but there has been disagreement over vital de tails of this proposal. Neither Senator Sparkman nor any of the other Senators and House members who attended a lengthy conference at the State Department yesterday on the truce situation would reveal any details of the proposed U.

S. policy on the prisoner issue. Senator Hickenlooper. Repub lican, of lowa, said the session left him “neither more optimis tic nor more pessimistic” about truce chances.

A well placed Government of ficial, declining to be named, said Secretary of State Dulles in two letters to Senator McCarthy has declared the Government policy to be: 1. That a cessation of all trade by Western Allies with China would be desirable but that, 2. The United States is not prepared to insist that the West ern Allies should embargo the shipping of non-strategic goods to the Reds, if there is a net trade advantage to the allied shippers in the goods they re ceive in return. Letter to President Withheld. The subcomittee, which has announced sending a request to President Eisenhower that he state publicly what he thinks of allied trade with Red China, said last night such a demand was never sent and may never be.

Dr. Boris Pachkov of the Soviet Red Cross originally sug ; gested only an appeal to the belligerents to cease bombard ment of towns and villages in Korea.

May 22.—Two former Government tax employes were committed to jail yesterday in default of SI,OOO fines after ; they pleaded guilty to income tax violations. Federal Judge William C. Cole man refused to postpone pa.v --■ ment of the fines imposed on Mrs. Jessie M. Jones, 58. a widow who worked for 10 years as a Baltimore Customs House tax window cashier, and F. Joseph Huppman. 61, a deputy collector of internal revenue with 11 years service. Mrs. Jones was charged with falsely claiming a distant rela tive as a dependent and with fil ing a false questionnaire form in connection with it.

Peace Cross (Continued From First Page.) lature had authorized the Prince Georges County Commissioners, the State Roads Commission and the Washington Suburban Sani tary Commission to use $750,000 on the project. This would be supplemented, Mr. Small said, by $1.5 million from the Road Commission and a similar sum authorized by the Prince Georges Commissioners. The speaker said continual flooding of the area blocks the most important northern and easterly approaches to the Capi j tol, including Route 1 to Balti | more and Route 50 to Annapolis. Mr. Small declared that an ; atomic attack on Washington might knock out the Virginia bridges. If this should occur during one of the periodic floods j on the Anacostia River, he said. ! “I do not like to even think of what would happen.” Damage in Millions. Flooding conditions along the Anacostia have become pro gressively worse since Colonial days, it was said, with the re sult that millions of dollars have been lost In recent years in prop erty damage, delay in interstate highway traffic, and delays im posed on Federal employes going to and from work in Washington. “Something must be done promptly,” Mr. Small continued. “Unless positive action is taken by this session of Congress, the local authorities will have to re sort to some plan of partial re lief, as they do not have the money to do a permanent job.” Such a locol alternative, Mr. Small said, eventually would prove wasteful in that It would afford only partial relief and the work would contribute little. If any thing, to a permanent so lution. 29 Days of Flood. L. S. (Ted) Ray, a member of the sanitary commission told the Representatives: “There are hundreds of peo ple living in the affected area ' whose homes are flooded every time we have a slight rain; even a small rain floods that area. There were 29 days in 1952 in which highways near the Peace Cross were blocked. “The rain water drains into I the Northwest Branch, and the water piles up in this area; the ; river fills up and meanders in almost every direction. It is filled with debris, and also we have tides in this area. The en gineers for both the Government and the commission have felt that it must be dredged and straightened. “We are fearful, because the people are so put out that some temporary expedient will be I adopted that would be more or ; less useless and probably would ; have to be torn out very short ly with the waste of money.” LxacTness A smooth ser vice is achieved through careful point -by - point planning. ©eal *B/2 Georgia Are.
