Fifth Atrocity Note
Sent by MacArthur
by Merle Mass
(Compiled from the wires of Associated Press)
General MacArthur has again alerted the United Nations to
atrocities committed by the North Korean Communists. This
was MacArthur’s fifth report to the Security Council.
“It becomes necessary to report again continued inhumane
acts on the part of the North Korean killings,” the general said.
His report mainly concerned the treatment of captured troops.
However, an official allied estimate indicates that about 25.000
men, women and children have been murdered along the Red
path back to the North. Some of these victims were prisoners of
war, but most of them were civilians who had been judged anti
In most cases the bodies were dumped into mass graves, but
others were left exposed in the communists hasty retreat.
The United Nation's...
. . . Assembly is expected to give the implied permission for the inva
sion of North Korea by the end of the week. The plan sponsored by Brit
ain, Australia, Brazil, Cuba, The Netherlands, Norway, Pakistan and
the Philippines, was adopted by the Political Committee Wednesday by
a vote of 47 to 5.
Also from UN headquarters comes word that Egypt has offered to con
tribute an army of 1,000,000 to 2,000,000 men as a part of a permanent
international force, if other countries, including the United States will
supply the arms and equipment. The offer was understood to have been
made on the condition that British troops are withdrawn from Egyptian
South Korean Forces. . .
... have captured the North Korean town of Changjon, which is about
60 miles north of the 38th parallel. It was an all-day fight during which
the South Korean third division beat down the strongest resistance yet
encountered north of the border.
Meantime, 175,000 American and allied troops massed along the para
llel with UN approval of invasion expected soon. The North Korea regime
at Pyongyang continued to ignore the surrender ultimatum broadcast
to it last Sunday.
Brazil Election Returns...
. . . are coming in slowly and former dictator Getulio Vargas has a
two to one lead, for the Brazilian presidency. The election was held Tues
day, but only a fraction of the votes had been counted.
The slow counting means that most Brazilians won’t know who will
succeed outgoing President Eurico Gaspar Dutra before several weeks.
It is believed that close to 7,700,000 ballots were cast, and to date Vargas
Austrian Communists. . .
. . . were still demonstrating in Vienna Thursday by halting all rail
traffic into and out of Vienna for three hours. Tracks on the East-West
line from the American occupation zone into Vienna were the first ones
cleared of road blocks.
A flying squad of several hundred communists piled railway ties across
the tracks of that line at St. Poelten, in the Russian Zone, west of Vi
enna. Other lines were blocked the same way, with agitators standing
guard over the barricades at many points. . "
England's Foreign Secretary...
. . . Ernest Bevin, although still weak from a recent illness, found
strength enough to slap down the ears of the far-left pacificists in the
Speaking before the annual conference of the ruling Labor party, most
of his talk was aimed at defeating a left-wing resolution. This resolution
urges the government to seek new talks with Russia, outlaw the atom
bomb, and Britain’s dependence on American aid by 1952, and call a Big
Five conference at once to increase East-West trade.
V In voting following the speech Bevin won overwhelming support, and
the party delegates agreed almost 4-1 to defeat the measure. This al
most solid defeat assures its defeat.
... arrived in Tacoma Thursday by water transport. The ship unloaded
191 fighting" men, wounded in battle, and the bodies of 22 others who
gave their lives. This was the first water movement of Korean victims.
Previously those injured were brought to the States by plane.
As soon as they were debarked the injured were cared for by attend
ants of Madigan Army Hospital, where the men are to be sent. There
were no families at the pier, but medical officials said close relatives of
the men would be able to have a happy reunion after lunch.
John L. Lewis...
. . .replied to President Truman’s remark that he (the President)
“wouldn’t even appoint Lewis for dog-catcher,” by saying the President
couldn’t appoint him dogcatcher because he could “ill afford to have more
brains in the dog department than in the Department of State.”
And if he were dog catcher, Lewis said, his first duty “would be to
collect and impound the sad dogs.^the intellectual poodle dogs and the
pusillanimous pups which now infest our State Department.”
The Ford Strike. ..
... is losing momentum, and there is a back to work movement
for the most part. The company threatened "serious disciplinary ac
tion” against striking employees who failed to return to their jobs
in the steel rolling mills. If the walkout had continued it might have
brought a shutdown of all Ford plants.
In West Coast labor the American Federation of Labor plans to seek
wage increases for thousands of workers in west coast ship construc
tion and repair yards. Rising costs of living are blamed for the desired
increase. On July 1, the workers were granted a 6-cent hourly wage
boost, which brought the minimum hourly scale up to $1.81.
