J.S. Charges Red Actions

Dim Hopes


RED PREMIER-Nikita S. Khrushchev set the controversy over the spy flight of an
plane over Russia last week when he announced it had been shot down by Russi

-Red Leader
U.S. Policy
MOSCOW (o) - Secretary of
State Christian A. Herter's defense
of the spy plane incident "is the
kind of statement that could only
be made in a country in a state
of war," Soviet Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev declares.
"If the United States is going to
unleash war and if they have
never experienced an atom bomb
on their territory, they certainly
will in the first minutes of a war,"
he added.
These blunt statements were re-
leased from censorship yesterday
20 hours after Khrushchev made
them at a news conference with
Soviet and foreign correspondents
Khrushchev castigated Francis
G. Powers, pilot of the U-2 jet
reconnaissance plane downed May
Day deep inside Russia for making
"a gangster and bandit raid" and
added, "We shall try him-try
him severely as a spy."'
Sharpest Remarks
The penalty for spying is 10
years in prison to death before a
firing squad.
But Khrushchev saved his
sharpest remarks for Herter as
he talked to correspondents at an
exhibit of espionage articles the
Russians say Powers carried
aboard his plane.
Herter had defended the right
of a nation to make reconnais-
sance flights over the territory of
a possible enemy and declared
such flights would continue.
Threat to Peace
This, Khrushchev said, is "a'
threat to peace . .. if there are
any further such aggressions we
will strike out at the aggressors."
Shaking his fist and looking
very angry, the Premier declared,
"These are audacious and brazen
statements. This is the kind of
statement that could only be made
by a country in a state of war
with another country, and we are
not at war with the United States.i
"And that is why I say these
statements were audacious and
brazen. Impudence! Impudence!
Very excited, Khrushchev con-
tinued, "Herter says the Soviet
Union is to blame because it does
not give the United States access
to its secrets and the United
States needs to have that access."

"The recent student demonstra-
tions in Korea indicate an expres-
sion of a sense of justice of the
students, who are assuming great
responsibility in a growing coun-
try," Prof. Hun Pyo Hong, Tang-
kook University in Seoul, Korea,
said yesterday.
He and Prof. Se Chang Yoon of
Korea University, attributed the
students' activities to several fac-
tors; they are better informed and
possibly more intelligent than the
average Korean, they are learning
the new trends of democracy in
the Western world, and they are
standing up for justice.
Prof. Yoon said the Constitution
of Korea, established in 1947, is
one of the most advanced in the
world. However, as President
Syngman Rhee's time in office
continued, his abuses and consti-
tutional violations increased.
"He tried to curb the opposi-
tion. He set up the National Se-
curity Act, Feb. 24, 1959, to op-
press freedom of the press and to
destroy the system of local auton-
omy. The people in general, the
students in particular, were aware
of this development, and the stu-
dents finally stood up," Prof. Yoon
said. -
General Objection
The general objections to Rhee
were that he remained in power
too long; he curbed freedom of
the press; and that he tried to
destroy Korea's two-party system.
The National Security Act pro-
hibited criticism of the president,
chief justice, and the speaker of
the National Assembly.
"The direct cause of the upris-
ing is the fraudulent rigging of
the election by the pro-govern-
ment party," Prof. Hong said.

The new times are refered to as
the second republic by the popu-
lace. Presumably it will realize
the importance of respecting the
rights and views of the people.
Smaller Party
From the aggregation of people
from the Democratic party and
from the population who make up
the new order, Professors Hong
and Yoon expect a smaller party
to emerge.
The present government is only
a "caretaker government" which
is preparing for the new govern-
ment. Thus, it has not developed
clear-cut policies.
The temporary government's
job now is to amend the consti-
tution in accordance with its orig-
inal spirit, to dissolve the pro-
Rhee National Assembly, and to
run new elections for executives,
cabinet, and National Assembly.
Prof. Yoon expressed hope that
Americans will reappraise Korea,
for "whatever mistakes have been
made in the past, this does not
show an inability of Korea to have
a democracy."~
The two professors are onta
three-month tour of the United
States, visiting courts, universi-
ties, factories, and legal institu-
tions. They both said "Our main
objective is to promote friendship
between the United States and
Korea by studying and observing
the United States ways of life."
