U.~S. Envoy Still

SEOUL-(P)-President , Syng-

nation "will never abandon half-
way" the struggle against Com-
munist aggression even though
the U. S. made it clear it could
not guarantee to resume the Ko-

Despite this impasse, President
Eisenhower's special envoy, Wal-
ter S. Robertson, continued ef-
forts to gain Rhee's support for
an immediate cease-fire with the
Reds on terms already agreed at
Panmunjom. Rhee has rejected
those terms as a "death warrant"
to his country.

Gen. Mark Clark, UN commander,
Jlast Monday that a date be set
for signing the truce.
It seemed almost certain that if
the Red high command should' de-

would tell Rhee the time had come
when he must decide to join in the

Rhee said in, an impassioned

Soviet Supply Line
Cut Off by Poles
BERLIN--(")-Polish partisans have cut a Soviet supply line and
alarmed Russian authorities are rushing tanks from East Germany to
Poland, reports reaching West Berlin early today said.
The West Berlin newspaper Telegraf said demonstrations have
broken out in Poland and that several persons have been killed in
clashes with Soviet troops.
THE TELEGRAF also said several Soviet troop units have been
pulled out of East Germany because they proved unreliable in conflicts
with German rioters and have been replaced by new units rushed
from the Soviet Union.
Accumulating reports trickling through the Iron Curtain indi-
cated that the bloody revolt which swept East Germany June 17
may have spread to Russia's neighboring satellite.
