' South Koreans
50 Miles Past '38'
Compiled by John Barton
From the wires of Associated Press
South Korean army forces are continuing to slash northward
into Communist North Korea—in some places as far as 50 miles
from the 38th parallel. And some United States authorities are
beginning to believe that the mysterious transport column mov
ing into Korea from the direction of the Manchurian border is no
more than another supply column. There’s been a steady move
ment of supplies by road from the Manchurian border through
out the war, according to an air force spokesman.
Reports Of Red Atrocities...
. . . are piling up in liberated South Korea which was overrun by the
Communist invaders. A Korean Republic official estimated yesterday at
Seoul that the Communists massacred more than 10,000 residents in the
Several thousand more are reported lying slaughtered in the outlying
hills around Seoul. AP Correspondent Stan Swinton wrote from the west
coast port of Kui\san that about 2,000 South Koreans have been reported
killed in that vicinity. When the Reds decided to kill, apparently, they
killed anyone—men women and children—and did it any way they saw
Fighting North Of 38th...
. . . was given tacit approval yesterday when the United Nation’s po
litical committee approved a Korean peace plan providing for unifica
t tion of the country. This is the plan proposed by Great Britain and eight
other nations—and supported by the U. S.
Voting on the plan by the 60-member committee was done by para
graphs. On the whole, the measure was overwhelmingly approved. The
committee turned down an Indian proposal that this plan and the Rus
sian-proposed cease fire plan for Korea be put befdre a sub-committee.
But the USSR delegation didn’t like this idea, either.
Marine Corps Casualties...
. ... in the Korean war up to Sept. 25 amounted to 2,347, Corps authori
ties say. That figure included dead, wounded, and missing. They added
that, since Marines were in the thick of bitter fighting in the Seoul area
that day, the figure has undoubtedly risen considerably since then.
Austrian Communists. . .
. . . have been ordered by the Cominform to drop plans to seize power
in Austria. That’s the report given yesterday by Allied intelligence
sources in Vienna. Don’t try to take over the government, as in Czecho
slovakia, the Austrian Reds are being told. Just play hob with it. “This is
not the time. Your action should be limited to harassing the govern
ment,” the Cominform order is supposed to read.
. . . are being wound up in Helsinki, and Socialists and Communists
still hold a slim lead over the rightist parties. But the rightists are gain
ing some of their lost ground, at last reports. With about 80 per cent of
the votes counted yesterday, the leftist parties held a slim lead of around
And in this hemisphere, Brazil is struggling through a presidential
election. Scattered early (and unofficial) returns have Brazil’s former
Dictator Getulio Vargas a strong lead over his opponents. Vargas was
booted out of office in 1945 by the army during a revolution. He ruled
Brazil from 1930 until then.
... is using the wrong financial policies in striving for economic re
covery, according to ECA Administrator M. Leon Dayton (of Portland,
Ore.). But Dayton’s statement is bringing sharp denials from Italian
sources. The government is “astonished” by Dayton’s charges, accord
ing to Italian governmental spokesmen. The Portlander says that the De
Gasperi government’s policy of curtailing credit has retarded recovery.
War On The Pakistan Border...
. .. has broken out, according to Karachi, Pakistan, sources. The gov
^ ernment announced that the border has been invaded by Afghanistan
tribesmen and regular troops—described as a large force. The two na
tions have engaged in a “cold war” for some time over the long stretch
of barren hills extending from Pamirs to Baluchistan.
Harold E. Stassen...
... president of the University of Pennsylvania, says he has sent a note
to Premier Joseph Stalin asking the Russian boss for a personal meeting
to chart a new course for world peace. Stassen made public his personal
letter to Stalin which he wrote last Monday. He wants a conference be
tween Stalin and members of the Russian Politburo and himself and four
or five other American citizen leaders.
Drafting Of Doctors...
... will be the subject of advice to the selective service by a new seven
man commission being appointed by President Truman. The commission
will be headed by Dr, Howard Rusk, doctor-writer of the New'York
Times, and will advise the selective service on the drafting of physicians
and dentists for duty in the armed forces.
The Nation's Food Prices...
. . . have finally begun a downward movement—expected by officials
for some time. It’s due to the season, they say. At any rate, pork cuts
have dropped from two to 12 cents a pound in many markets across the
country. Pork is now below the level of prices where it stood just before
the Korean war. Other food prices are sliding too, according to a nation
wide AP poll.
An Oregon Sheriff...
.. . yesterday shot and killed a 19-year-old fugitive from law near Mc
Minnville. Charles Farmer, who escaped from Bingen, Wash., police Mon
day night, is the dead youth. It was the fourth time since Monday that
Farmer had been fired on by police. He was on parole from the Monroe,
y Wash., state training school, and broke away from police in Bingen when
picked up on a burglary charge.
