The Waterfront Was Still Smoking ...
. . . when the two ships eased out of the inner harbor and joined the
other navy and merchant ships. Army demolition squads had set off
charges throughout the harbor, making it almost useless for the enemy.
The navy fleet in the outer harbor had sweated out the evacuation of
the last two ships. Chinese troops were nearing Inchon as the navy await
ed the Qpming of high tide.
But the Chinese Reds were kept at bay by the big guns of the heavy
The Main Body of the Eighth Army ...
... was marching southward from Seoul while the Communist army
poured through the ruined city, following the destroying of all port in
stallations. Only major structure still standing was the 1,500-yard con
crete causeway from Inchon to Wolmi Island in the harbor.
President Truman Told His News Conference .. .
... that we are not at war—we are carrying out an obligation for the
United Nations in Korea. The President said that American planes will
not bomb Red China without asking United Nations permission. Fur
thermore, he said, he is not even thinking of asking for that permission
at the present time. The President voiced hope for peace in 1951, but he
refused to make a prediction that war would not come.
The Republican Senate Minority Leader...
... Kenneth Wherry of Nebraska, has made a proposal to have Ameri
can forces withdrawn from Korea unless other United Nations members
supply more troops within 15 days. Wherry said, “This is not isolation
ism. It is good common sense.”
The Battleship Wisconsin ...
. . . has been taken out of mothballs. She arrived for reconditioning
Thursday at Portsmouth, Virginia. The navy said that the 27,000-ton
aircraft carrier Tarawa will also be reconditioned soon, probably at the
Brooklyn navy yard in New York.
A Special House Committee . . .
... says it has found widespread irregularities in the billion dollar G.I.
education program. After a three month inquiry, the House group says
that many schools are more concerned with the amount of money that
they can make than they are with the value of their courses to war vete
rans. The committee reports that the Veterans Administration, which
runs the education program, has been overcharged for school supplies
in many instances.
The Long Island Railroad . . .
. . . was ordered to carry two men in the cabs of its electric trains in
ftfee future by New York state’s Public Service Commission. The com
mission also ordered the railroad to add better warning lights to the rear
of each train. One hundred and thirteen persons have been killed in Long
Island accidents in the past eleven months.
Price Administrator Michael Di Salle ...
... has named New York financier John Hancock to preside over hear
ings on automobile price ceilings. Hancock says that the hearings will
start as soon as possible.
President Truman said Thursday that mandatory controls on prac
tically everything will be necessary as the defense program gets into
high gear, indicating that he has given up hope of halting infiltration
with voluntary price and wage controls.
A New Series of Tanks ...
. . . designed to be light and powerful, will start rolling off production
lines early this spring, according to Archibald Alexander, undersecretary
of the army. In addition, development of a new medium tank—one that
can disable a heavy enemy tank—is underway, and a new heavy tank is
planned. This heavy tank would be large enough to carry a big gun and
still retain good maneuverability.
At the present time, sad Alexander, production is concentrated on the
Patton medium tank. He predicted that the billion dollar tank program
will be in full operation by the end of the year. He also said that the army
will need more than the billion dollars voted by congress if industry can
keep pace with the tank program.
A New Unofficial Altitude Record ...
. . . for light airplanes was set by aviatrix Caro Bayley of Springfield,
Qfeip, climbed 30,380 feet over Miami, Fla. Miss Bayley said that it was
34 degrees below zero at the top of her climb, and that she could see
Bimini Island, which was 60 miles away. She flew a Piper Super Cub.

friend was unperturbed. He pondered the facts of the case and decided that

conclusive. Proof of cigarette mildness doesn’t come that fast!
