U.N. Forces Retake
Compiled by John Barton
From the wires of Associated Press
South Korean ground forces today are recapturing territory
lost yesterday when a two-mile penetration by Communist for
ces drove them back. The Reds were stopped by heavy attacks of
United Nations’ fighter-bombers. An estimated 1,000 Communist
troops were killed in the air attack.
Elsewhere in Korea, United States First Cavalry forces are
slowly advancing near Wonni on the south bank of the Chong
chon River. They’re making other gains on the north bank above
An Allied Offensive...
. . .called “limited” by MacArthur spokesmen in Japan, is enlarg
ing the U. N. beachhead north of the Chongchon river. Not too much
Red resistance is being met.
: This action and that in the South Korean sector (mentioned above)
was the extent of heavy fighting in Korea yesterday.
The U. S. Third Division...
. . .has completed its Korean disembarkation. The historic Third,
thick with tradition from two world wars, is now ready for action in
Korea. So the fight between Democracy and Communism in Korea
isn’t too active today, but it’s going strong elsewhere in the world.
Tibet Has Demanded Withdrawal. . .
; . . .of Chinese Communist forces from her nation. Red China boss
\Mao Tze-Tung has been given the word to get out by the Tibet govern
ment in Lhasa. As in Korea, the Chinese Reds are reported to have
mysteriously stopped advancing or fighting. Rumors persist they’re
still at it, but official sources say they have slowed to re-group forces.
High in Tibetan mountain passes, no one moves fast. And India’s sec
ond official protest may have something to do with it.
U. N. Korean Investigator...
. . .James Plimsoll of Australia is off to the Far East today for
what he hopes will be direct negotiations with Red leaders of North
Korea and China. Several members of the U. N. commission on Korea
are already in the fighting zone. Red China has refused to answer
U. N. security council calls to answer aggression and intervention
charges. But some authorities feel the Chinese leaders want no more
than we do to become mixed in another world war. They may have
gone to Korea because they felt shaky about their Yalu river frontier.
Revolution in Nepal...
. . .is reportedly going bad for the government today. Trouble is
between the Nepali Congress party supporters, angry at the exile of
t,heir liberal-minded king, and the powerful prime minister of their
nation. Nepal is high in the Himalayan mountains. Rebel forces are
driving toward Katmandu, the capital. Government sources say they
have been stopped. Rebel sources say they are still going.
A Powerful Russian Navy. . .
. . .is reportedly being built up behind the Iron Curtain. This is the
claim of “Brassey’s 1950 Annual.” That’s an unofficial British survey
of the world’s armed forces. Somewhat similar to “Jane’s Fighting
Ships,” this annual has been published for 64 years. This year it says
the Russians will have 1,000 fast submarines by the end of 1951; now
have two 35,000-ton battleships, with more under construction; are
working on two nearly-completed aircraft carriers, and are going great
guns in all other divisions of conventional naval armament. But the
manual says the Reds seem to have a “faulty conception of modern
President Truman Still Doesn't. . .
. . .know whether he will call a special session of Congress. But
Presidential sources say he may decide by next week. Yesterday the
President, now back from his five-day vacation cruise, presented to the
nation the Gray report—compiled by ex-army Secretary Gordon Gray.
The report is intended to answer the question, “After the Marshall
Plan— What?” And the answer seems to be—more aid, military
and economic, to the rest of the world, with moderations in some
Less "Fair Deal" Programing...
. . .will be forthcoming from President Truman from now on, his
friends in Washington are saying. The friends, un-named, say the
President must go easy on the Fair Dealt a campaign banner in 1948)
because of the small Democratic majority in Congress. Truman may not
even put in his oar when it comes to picking the new Democratic
Senatorial leader to replace defeated Scott Lucas of Illinois. He needs
all the Democratic support in Congress he can get. And Fair Deal
proposals in the past have lost him at least eight Senate votes.
Public Interest. . .
. . .got a word from federal mediators to straighten out the cur
rent telephone strike. A government mediator yesterday appealed to
both the union and company to subordinate their desires to “the
paramount public interest.” They’re talking again today. Most local
phone service is still normal, but lack of operators (kept out by picket
lines) is slowing long-distance service.
Northwest Airlines is Suspending...
. . .operation of all Martin 2-0-2 twin-engined airliners temporarily,
company spokesmen said yesterday. The withdrawal is being made for
a complete fleet inspection. Inspection of Martin 2-0-2’s started Sat
urday. Three crashes of these planes in the last year are responsible
for the overall inspction. The last one, Nov. 7 in the Rocky Moun
tains of Montana took 22 lives.
A Federal Kidnapping Case. . .
. . .alerted the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Santa Fe, N. M.
over the weekend. Dr. Nancy Campbell, Yale-educated woman doctor,
may get the death penalty. She kidnapped Linda Stamm, 9, Friday
night, drugged her and left her in a cabin alone overnight when the
temperature was barely above zero. Dr. Campbell was caught by the
F\Bl late Saturday night when she reached for the $20,000 ransom
near the kidnapped girl’s home.
