(Studio) At meeting of Korea armistice commission at Panmunjom, DMZ, today, North Korea proposes physical separation of its troops and American and South Korea troops along DMZ (demilitarized zone) area as way to avoid incidents such as recent 1 where 2 Americans killed. Americans says North Koreans responsible for killings should be punished; agree to study North Korea proposal.
REPORTER: David Brinkley

(Panmunjom, Korea) Film of meeting shown and remarks of each side noted. Concern in South Korea is that Americans softened on position with regard to North Korea statement on incident; many feel timing wrong and only strong warning can be issued, like others which North Koreans have ignored. Consensus is North Koreans tried to escalate level of violence here but miscalculated United States and world reaction.
