DUCK PREVIEW WEEKEND
Reds Open Gates
By Larry Hobart
From the wires of Associated Press
The Chinese Ke<ls opener! the sluice Rates of the big Hwachon
Reservoir in the face of advancing Allied troops M«>ml»\, but the
Hood fell short of ite intended mark.
The rushing water raised the level of the Pukhan River three
feet, hut by noon the peak had been reached.
An Allied tank column sped northward, seeking to seize con
trol of the dam.
A United Nations technical engineering expert said it was ap
parent that the Communists had not been able to open enough o
the dam gates simultaneously or had tailed to open tin 1,11
enough to cause anv real damagi.
The dam 880 feet wide and 275 feet high, had 18 galea. The engineer
ing spokesman said that if it all had been opened wide, a 10-foot wall of
water would have poured down the Pukhan Valley toward Chunehon
If the dam Itself had been destroyed. Army experts said, the entire him
chon plain would have been put under one foot of water.
The onrushing flood waters were first reported by two American mili
tary policemen on duty at a pontoon bridge over the Pukhan 200 yards
south of the 38th parallel. The dam is six and one-half miles north of
Disciplinary Action Against General MacArthujL.
because of his latest public statements was reported Monday to
have been decided against by President Truman if It would upset the
General's status as Supreme Commander in the Fur hast.
An informed Congressional official, who asked that his name not be
used, told the decision to a reporter Monday. He said that I lUman s
action did not mean there would be no inprimand to Mac Arthur but
that the President apparently has not yet made up his mind about that
The White House itself was silent about what, if any, action might be
Democratic Congressional leaders acknowledged that there bad been
i .some discussion of MacArthnr at a forenoon conference with the Prest
dent. But they said the general was mentioned onJy incidentally.
It was learned, however, that Congressional leaders have been told
that any action to relieve the general of his command might upset the
existing situation in occupied Japan.
France Teamed With Great Britain...
Monday In opposing Gen. MacArthur's proposal for use of Chiang
Kai-Shek's troops by the United Nations in an effort to win the war in
This was reported by the semi-official French News Agency and later
confirmed by a foreign ministry spokesman.
The news agency said the government "confirmed that throughout the
conversations carried on by diplomatic channels at W ashington and Lake
Success to fix the common position of the powers with troops in Korea,
j France as well as Great Britain has constantly opposed any extension
; of the conflict, whether by bombing Manchuria or the use of Nationalist
! Chinese troops, and in general by activity of the Commander-in-Chief
! not expressly appiovcd by the U N."
Universal Military Training.. .
. . . advocates backed down still further Monday. They agreed to a
: draft bill amendment which cuts their proposal down to nothing more
than authorization for drawing up a plan for Congress to pass on lut'-r.
Under the new language approved by the House Armed Services Com
, mittee, it would take a regular new law, passed by Congress and signed
by the president, to put any training plan into effect.
Speaker of the House Raybutn again told White House reporters Mon
day that the United States is in “terrible danger” because tlic Russians
are building up concentrations "here and there and everywhere.”
Last week Rayburn came out of a White House conference and said
| not all the troops gathering in Manchuria were Chinese Communists,
i Rayburn also said that the U.S. was threatened by "a terrible danger”
! which might bring on another world war.
Rayburn’s statements were made on the House floor last week as de
1 bate on the controversial-Draft-Universal Military Training bill.
The U. S. Supreme Court...
. . . agreed Monday to step into the government's thus far unsuccessful
efforts to outlaw' medical and hospital insurance plans operated exclu
sively by doctors’ societies.
The Justice Department risked the high tribunal to review a lower
court's finding that such plans do not violate anti-trust laws.
The test case was brought in Oregon in 1948 against the Oregon Phy
sicians’ Service, its sponsor, the Oregon Stute Medical Society, affiliated
county societies, and a number of doctor members.
The U. S. District Cour t at Portland dismissed the case after a trial
which ran through many months last year.
A State Cigarette Tax...
... of three cents a package and a five per cent boost in liquor prices
might make it possible to take care ot emer gency building needs of state
institutions and the State Board of Higher Education.
The cigarette tax, to raise $10,000,000 during the next two-year budget
period, was approved Satur day by the poinL Legislative Ways and Mea^rt
Committee. It also asked the Liquor Commission to produce an extra
$3,000,000, which would mean an average liquor price of five per cent.
The committee would put the entire $13,000,000 in the State General
Fund. Committee members would like to take care of the most important
of the $24,000,000 worth of buildings asked by the State Board of Con
trol and the Board of Higher Education.
