    UN Forces Near
Manchurian Line
Compiled by John Barton
From the wires of Associated Press
Weather in Korea today is getting colder, but things are get
ting hotter for Communist North Koreans and Chinese. Cnited
'States tanks are rushing forward—at one point to within 13 miles
of the Manchurian border—c^ver snow-covered ground under
blue and sunny skies.
One column has captured the city of Kapsan and gone nine
.miles beyond it. This is on the Northeast front. Communists had
an ambush laid on the outskirts of Kapsan, but some of the Reds
bolted when they saw the American tanks coming. And that gave
the plan away. Dozens of the Reds were crushed and buried by
bull-dozer tanks.
Chinese Reds Are Still Retreating.
, . . in the Northwest sector of the Korean front. TJ. S., British and
Korean patrols are keeping contact with strong Chinese forces but the
Commies continue to pull back just as rapidly as the United Nations
forces surge ahead. They’re leaving equipment and warm campfires in
some places. Elsewhere in the Korean war today, it’s the same story.
U. N. forces are pushing forward toward the end of the war.
The World Peace Congress Was Jolted. ..
... yesterday in Warsaw when the U. S. delegate, O. John Rogge, came
up with the idea that the Communist-backed assemblage should accept
some ideas from the Western world.
The former assistant U. S. attorney general said there is widespread
apprehension that the congress for peace is becoming an instrument of
Russian foreign policy. He was nearly laughed out of the meeting hall,
of course, but he stuck to his point and even got some applause when he
Most of the shouts and jeers came when he praised Yugoslavia for its
independence of the cominform. He commended the efforts of the Balkan
nation to work on non-agression pacts with its neighbors.
A Socialist Election Victory in Germany...
. . . over the weekend means that the fight against rearming Germany
has more backers now. The Socialists won in the states of Hesse and
Wuerttemberg-Baden. Leaders hailed the victory as a vote against Ger
man rearmament. U. S. officers of occupation interpret the election out
come as being caused by domestic issues, and they say the international
situation had little bearing on it. Communists took a terrible licking, and
Christian Democrats also lost considerable ground.
The "Vishinsky Doctrine" Must Go...
. the U. S. has told the world. This doctrine preaches that war
against non-Communist countries is just and virtuous, says the U. S.
delegation to the U. N. general assembly. Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge (R
Mass.) made the denunciation of Russ policy in a formal statement to
the U. N. and the world. He’s the U. S. delegate to the general assembly.
Lodge says he hopes the Soviet will give up this policy, because no
peaceful settlement of the world situation can ever come about until it
is changed. Because they believe in this doctrine, Lodge says the Rus
sians have branded as agressors all the nations who went into the Ko
rean war at U. N. orders.
A Republican Tax Plan. . . .
. . . designed to replace President Truman’s plan for getting up foui
million dollars, will probably be defeated in committee, Washington
sources say. The GOP idea is to let corporations have a choice of which
way they shall pay their taxes—either through excess profits (at a rate
not yet determined) or through a 55 per cent corporation tax. They could
pay which ever was least. And the Republicans say this plan will yield
more revenue.
The Telephone Strike Is Over. . .
after 11 days of telephone hold-ups and slowness. Strikers started
back to work yesterday throughout the nation. End of the dispute came
after continuous mediation sessions in New York had gone on for more
than 24 hours. Both union and company are satisfied.
A Scheduled Television Strike. . .
... in New York yesterday was called off at the “eleventh hour.” Com
panies got together with performers at the last minute and enabled the
big Sunday programs to go on the air. Union spokesmen say the em
ployers won good concessions in pay and on other demands.
