Pass 38th Parallel
Compiled by John Barton
From the wires of Associated Press
Troops of four United Nations are continuing to push north of
the 38th parallel todajv British and Australian forces, crossing in
to North Korea in force for the first’time, have advanced as fast
I as 10 miles in some places.
U. N. Pincers...
. . . are closing in on the Red City of Kumchon, which sits on the main
road leading to the Communist Korea capital of Pyongyang. The Red
refusal to accept General MacArthur’s surrender terms are slowly spell
ing “finish” for the Korean Communists.
The Allies aren’t hurrying into North Korea—they’re taking their
time, saving as many lives (Allied) as they can. But reports indicate it
won’t be long before the all-out push to destroy Communism in Korea
Russia Pulled Another Surprise...
... in the U. N. yesterday when its delegation proposed that the se
curity council speed efforts to establish an international police force. The
police force, of course, would be for stamping out aggression wherever
it should arise. •
The Russians, say Delegate Vishinsky, also want the five major pow
ers of the U. N. to confer among themselves on steps to maintain peace.
And to the Russian statement, Canada’s foreign minister, Lester B.
Pearson, said the Russ should back up their statements with the peace
ful intentions and actions. “We will wait with eagerness for that . .
East German Elections. . .
. . ..are being blasted by the United States, as U. S. officials say the
Russians are attempting to consolidate the Soviet Empire in Germany
with the one-ticket election.
And as the U. S. issued its broadsides condemning the elections, Reds
in East Germany prodded 13 million voters out to the polls to try for a
unanimous ballot for the hand-picked single slate of candidates. About
70 per cent of the names on the ballots are Red.
Railroad Wage Increases. ..
. . . are being asked by firemen and enginemen—to the extent of 35
cents an hour. And yesterday heads of 15 railroad unions representing a
million non-operating employes decided to ask for a 25 cent an hour wage
hike. The demands are on a national basis.
Also on the labor scene, United States Steel corporation has decided
to meet with the CIO United Steelworkers for negotiations on a new
labor-management contract. U. S. Steel, maker of one-third of the na
tion’s steel, will talk to union heads Oct. 16. Wage talks are already
underway between the union and 35 other steel companies.
The present contract says new wage talks don’t have to start before
Nov. 1, but union head Philip Murray says they must talk now for “a
very healthy and substantial increase.”
President Truman Is Off...
. . . for the Pacific and his scheduled talk with General MacArthur.
He left on the first leg of his trip yesterday when he took off from a
Washington airport for an'overnight stay in St. Louis. Truman has
never met MacArthur .. . Doug left the country in 1937 and hasn’t been
back from the Pacific since then.
Alaskan Elections Look. . .
. . . good for Republicans as the first returns are counted. The old
saying of “As goes Alaska so goes the nation” is making some Repub
licans rhighty happy. Alaska sends a non-voting delegate to the House of
Representatives in Washington, D. C. Right now, the Democratic candi
date ( and incumbent), E. L. Bartlett, is ahead of the Republican candi
date, but he’s not far ahead.
A New Casualty List. . .
. . . has been issued in Washington. The official total in Korea now
stands at 24,163—that’s a rise of over 3,000 in one week. Deaths amount
to 3,^14; wounded, 16,289, and 4,260 are missing in action.
Also in Washington, Secretary of State Dean Acheson says we will
have to send food to Yugoslavia. A bad drought there has cut crops way
below normal. That would mean sending American bought food to in
dependent-Communist Marshall Tito’s nation.
Seizure of 95 Foreigners...
... by the federal government as they entered the port of New York
has brought official protests from Italy and Western Germany. The move
was a quick application of the new internal security act.
Beside the 95 persons sent to Ellis Island for investigation, nearly the
entire crews of the two ships they came on were confined by immigra
The persons were interned because they are either past or present
members of Communist and other totalitarian groups.
Their final destination, as it applies to the U. S., will be determined
by the attorney general.
Crime in the U. S...
... is coming under scrutiny of the Senate crime committee. The
committee opened the New York-New Jersey phase if its interstate
crime investigation yesterday. But one of its key witnesses is still mis
sing. He’s Joe Adonis. Joe’s wife has been subppoenaed. Senators lead
ing the investigation say they are trying to uncover a "large scale gamb
ling operation that has interstate connections.”
Color Television. . .
... as presented by the Columbia Broadcasting System has been given
the go-ahead by the federal communications commission. CBS was given
permission yesterday to commercially operate its color TV. And some
TV set manufacturers are howling that they can’t make quick changes
in receiver designs so that their black-and-white sets can pick up CBS’s
colc^ programs in black and white. CBS color starts Nov. 20.
