ing a free and united Korea under

which dovetails closely with a pro-
posal being circulated by the Brit-
ish, follows in brief :
1. Korea should be free and
2. The method of unification can
best be determined by a strong
United Nations commission in Ko-
rea with between seven and four-
teen members.
3. Korean people 'to be con-
sulted by the commission should
be chosen in free elections by
secret ballot on the basis of uni-
versal suffrage.
4. Strong emphasis on a pro-.
gram of rehabilitation and recon-

problem must not be dominated
by any one nation but must be

Korean people.
6. It must be made certain that

pose no threat to its neighbors.

Willilams Proclaims Atom may'

A4-Day' Proclamation
The following is Gov. William's Atom Day proclamation:
Forces which throughout time will affect the lives of all
mankind have been set in motion by the release of atomic energy.
If these forces are to build rather than destroy, they must
be identified and controlled. The sooner we learn to live with the
atom, the sooner will we benefit by the now incredible pgtentialities
of atomic science.
In these days of world-wide ideological conflict, the United
States and its free people must take the lead in applying the awe-
inspiring possibilities of atomic science to the promotion of
universal health and welfare. The University of Michigan is now
engaged on such a project at, its atomic research center.
To focus the attention of our people on the benficient poten-
tialities of atomic energy, the University of Michigan has proposed
that the first Monday in October be observed throughout the
nation as ATOM DAY.
Therefore, I, G. Mennen Williams, Governor of the State
of Michigan, do hereby proclaim Monday, October 2, 1950, as
ATOM DAY in Michigan, and urge all our people on that day
and every day thereafter to aid in putting atomic energy to work
as an instrument ,for the good of all the peoples of the world. ,
Given under my hand and the Great Seal of the State of
Michigan, this twenty-seventh day of September, in the Year of
Our Lord, One Thousand Nine Hundred Fifty, and the Common-
wealth of the One Hundred Fourteenth.

BUT he agrred with General
Omar N. Bradley, Chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, that the
greatest danger facing the UnitedI
States'is that it may let its guard
down after the war is over.
The President predicted there
would be what he called sincere
efforts in Congress to block de-
fense programs now under way,
when the fighting ceases.
But he said it would not be Ad-
ministration forces doing the
blocking and he hopes the effort
will not succeed, although the pro-
gram will take money.

whether American forces would
pursue fleeing north . Koreans
across the 38th parallel dividing
North and South Korea. He could-
n't answer that now because that
line had not been reached, he said.
Other officials have said the
resolution gives MacArthur au-
thority to cross the parallel if
necessary to destroy the Commu-
nist army.
