The Korean War reached a new crisis Wednesday, as United
Nations forces were pulling out of Seoul in face of a blistering
attack by seven Chinese Communist armies.
On the Korean west coast, Rear Admiral I. A. Thackrey an
nounced that United Nations Naval forces are ready to redeploy
their ground troops by sea should developments make that nec
"We Are Ready.
. . . to provide naval gunfire and, if necessary, naval transports and
merchants ships to redeploy our ground troops by sea,” said Thackrey,
senior U.N. naval officer off the Korean west coast. Thackrey added
that he had American, British, Candian, and Australian ships wait
ing to do whatever they can to aid ground forces.
U.N. Vessels Are Evacuating.
. . . thousands of Korean refugees south of the 38th parallel—in
cluding South Korean officials and other government workers and
their families, Admiral Thackrey also disclosed.
While long convoys poured south from Seoul and the U.N. line in
central Korea was pushed back in a deep dent, a threat of a great
encircling action seemed imminent as Communist spearheads drove
South from Chunchon toward Wonju, 55 miles southeast of Seoul.
The Communists Will Drive...
. . . the United Nations oiil of Korea, predicts a veteran Associated
Press war correspondent. The newsman, Don Whitehead, says, how
ever, that it will be a fighting withdrawal.
Whitehead went on to say: ‘‘We can hold a beachhead in Korea
indefinitely if we are willing to spend the manpower. But Korea isn’t
the place for a major effort against Communism. We don’t have
enough men to fight the kind of Indian warfare we are fighting in
Whitehead said the Chinese Reds, for the most part, are exceptionally
well-trained troops. He added: “They don’t break and run. I watched
our planes firebomb some Chinese troops on a ridge. The Chinese just
jumped out of their foxholes beat out the fires, and went right back
to their guns.”
A Former Connecticut Senator,. . .
. , . Hiram Bingham, was appointed by the civil service commission
Wednesday to head the government’s Loyaty Review Board. Bingham,
a Republican, takes the place of Seth Richardson, who was named to
head the Subversive Activities Control Board under the McCarran law.
Legalized Wire Tapping...
. . . was called for by the House Committee on Unamerican Activi
ties Wednesday, as the committee called on Congress to make legal
any evidence obtained in that manner in order to create a weapon to
run down Communist spies and fifth-columnists.
The Excess Profits Tax...
. . . bill was signed into law by President Truman Wednesday, as the
president warned the nation that more and much heavier taxes will be
needed to finance the defense effort. He indicated that the little fellow—
the individual—will probably feel it the next time. But he said that he
had told the treasury to check the excess profits tax returns closely and
had questioned whether Congress may not have been too liberal with
some corporations in special circumstances.
At The Suggestion of...
. . . Economic Mobilizer Charles Wilson, Mr. Truman today created a
new agency, the Defense Produmtion Administration, and ftamed Wil
liam Harrison to head it. Harrison, former president of the Intemationsi
^lephone and Telegraph Company, will have full apthority over pro
duction from mine to factory.
The National Production Authority...
. . . Will soon put the squeeze on the use of tin and aluminum in metal
tubes for shaving cream and other products. The NPA has told manu
facturers that the order is being drawn up.
An Oakland boxer who* fled from the ring during a fight in Portland
Tuesday night says there was just too much confusion in his corner, so
Billy Smith sat in the office of promoter Tex Salkeld today, wating
for some word' from the Oregon Boxing commission, which already has
suspended him. He told newsmen he doesn’t mind being suspended. And
it’s all right if he loses his share of the purse.
It is entirely probable Smith won’t get a nickel, but members of the
boxing commission are scattered over the state and none could be reach
ed to find out when a final decision on the held-up purse will be made.
