    Korean Reds Flee
From U.N. Forces
Compiled by John Barton
From the wires of Associated Press
North Korean Communists are fleeing before advancing
United Nations forces today in oxcarts and on foot—any way to
get away from the powers of democracy which are sweeping to
ward the Manchurian border and the end of the Korean war.
At one point todayj South Korean troops are about 30 miles
from that border. About five divisions of U. N. troops are slash
ing toward the Yalu river. Most are South Korean troops.
Communist Chinese Fired. . .
. . .upon an American F-51 Wednesday with anti-aircraft weapons.
And the U. S. plane was three miles south of the border between Korea
and Red China. The pilot of the plane was forced to land his craft
at sea. He was picked up by a U. N. naval craft.
That’s the second time Red Chinese have shot at U. S. planes. They
did it Monday when two Marine fighters, 20 miles from the border,
received token bursts from the Commies. The Marines were not hit.
U. N. planes in Korea are usually confined to an area 20 miles or
more from the border. They are to go nearer only on specific mis
sions, according to the air force
U. N. Secretary Lie. . .
. . .will be rehired when his term runs out in February if U. S. Dele
gate Warren R. Austin has anything to say about it.
Austin reportedly told a secret meeting of the security council yes
terday that he would “actively oppose’’ election of anyone but Trygve
ftie as U. N. secretary general.
This means, of course, that the U. S. would use its veto power if
any other candidate should win a council majority. Russia is cur
rently supporting candidates from India and Asia for the job.
Use of Atomic Weapons...
. . .to stop aggression by any nation is perfectly justified, says Aus
tralian Foreign Minister Percy C. Spender. He added that the aggres
sion itself is the worst crime against humanity which could be under
taken. Spender says the way of the aggressor must be' made hard.
The Stockholm appeal, he says, is a “piece of international fraud.”
This document calls for the outlawing of atomic weapons.
Unifying Germany...
. . .under a Soviet bloc proposal, has been rejected by U. S. Secre
tary of State Dean Acheson. The proposal was made Saturday after a
two-day meeting at Prague of Russia’s Molotov and foreign minis
ters of seven Red satellite nations. It calls for the same old line
of disarming Western Germany.
Guided Missile Production. . .
. . .may begin on a large scale before long. Washington experts
predicted that may happen with the appointment of K. T. Keller,
president of Chrysler corporation, as director of guided missiles. Ap
pointment was made by Secretary of Defense George Marshall.
This position is a new one established by Marshall in his own
office. Keller is an expert on production and engineering problems.
There is no official indication, however, that mass production of guid
ed missiles will start. But they’ve been in the experimental stage
for a long time.
Al Jolson's Estate...
. . .is said to be around five million dollars. New York Columnist
Earl Wilson says about one million of it is going to New York Uni
versity, City College of New York and Columbia University. Theatri
cal magazine Variety says Jolson left much of his estate to charity.
The money will go, says the magazine, to Catholic, Jewish and Protesi
ant charities, as well as educational institutions.
Many specific bequests of Jolson’s will are marked for needy
students at the colleges named above.
Maj. Gen. William F. Dean...
. . .is a closed subject, at the request of U. S. Eighth army head
quarters in Japan. The army has asked newsmen to “withhold any in
formation relating to” the missing general. He was captured in ac
tion July 20 during the Korean war, it is supposed. Many rumors as
to his whereabouts have been floating about since then.
Dr. Ralph Bunche. ..
. . .United Nations official and Nobel peace prize winner, is now
a professor of government at Harvard University. The announcement
of his appointment last January was made yesterday by Harvard
officials. Bunche was awarded the Nobel peace prize for his media
tion work in the Palestine controversy.
Universal Military Training...
. . .has again been advocated by President Truman this time be
fore the National Guard association’s meeting yesterday. Truman
dropped in for an informal, chatty session and said he has asked
Congress for UMT eight times with no success. He will try again, and
fie wants the Guard’s support.
Tuesday Night's Storm...
. . .which slapped the campus, was felt hardest around Puget Sound
and other British Columbia and Washington coastal areas. Winds up
to 60 miles and hour were recorded. But this time the Tacoma Narrows
bridge, wrecked once before by a 43 MPH wind, was quite steady
with no sway observed.
Austin Flegel Was Accused. . .
. . .of telling a “plain, deliberate, intentional falsehood,” last night
by Governor Douglas McKay in a speech over a Portland radio sta
tion. Flegel had stated that the governor is influenced by special in
terests and pressure groups. Not so, says McKay.

Do You Know a Rumor~
when you hear one7
During the war we knew enough to
mistrust rumors and particularly
knew how dangerous it was to
spread them. We knew then that
rumors affected our unity, and
, Unity was vital to winning the war.
But perhaps we don’t know that
rumors are just as dangerous today
as they were during the war.
Because — rumors about other
groups, other religions and other
races always threaten our national
unity—without which we cannot
hope to survive.
Be an active citizen—help keep
your country strong, united and
secure—a good place in which men
can live together, prosper together,
and pursue happiness together.
Make sure that you are not spread*
ing rumors against a race or reli
gion. Speak up, wherever you are,
against prejudice, and work for
better understanding. Remember
that’s being \good American,
