U.S. Patrol Routs
Reds From 2 Hills
Compiled by Dave Cromwell
From the wire* of AHUorlittod Press
An American patrol crossed the border into Red Korea under
fue Wednesday and routed Chinese Reds from two hills.
A field dispatch said the crossing was niade at 11 :20 on the
central front near where the Communists have massed almost
one half million troops for an expected spring offensive.
The strong force which crossed the 38th parallel Tuesday
alon^- a 10 mile stretch of the western front withdrew by night
fall under heavy fire.
In the air, American Sabre jets destroyed one Russian-type
MM.-In jet fighter and damaged two others Wednesday in a
swirling dogfight near the Manchurian border.
Other allied plunes ripped into communist ground forces and supply
lines. They destroyed four tanks, six trucks and five railroad cars in
270 sorties flown hy noon.
From the central front came an ominous report that a large group
of Reds was moving into the Communist buildup area north of the 38th.
Intelligence reports say there are now nearly 500,000 oombat troops
in this area, primed for the long expected Red offensive.
For the second straight day the big air battle wus fought near SinuijU,
south of the Yalu river. Twelve F-86 Sabre jets tangled with eight
red-nosed MIGs. The Communists broke off and raced to refuge in
their Manchurian sanctuary.
