Oregon, as outlined in the state
constitution, be changed. The
north boundary of the state, as
provided in the constitution, was
changed by an act of Congress ad

the words "to a point near Fort

SEOUL, Korea (UP) South
Korea's tough provost marshal
threatened today to hold more
than 2000 Indian troops in Korea
until India guarantees the future
welfare of 76 Korean war prison
ers who chose neutral asylum.
Gen. Won Yong Duk, who de
layed signing of a Korean armis
tice by releasing 27,000 anti-Communist
North Korea prisoners last
June, said the Indians would be
detained until the guarantees
were received.
Won's statement was released as
the British troopship Captain Job
son sailed from Inchon with 580
turbaned Indian troops aboard. It
was the third homeward shipment
of Indians who had completed
their mission as guards for un
repatriated Korean War prisoners.
Thc Hobson's sailing reduced
the number of Indian troops still
in the neutral zone at Panmunjom
to about 2000. The next contingent
of 1200 officers and men is sched-
