South Korean sailors drove ashon at Inchon in the cold grey dawn to- day and -raided tire port of Seou for four hours. To the east, allied tanks am troops drove thru ankle deep snow within less than 13 air line mile, of the old South Korean capital. TSte tank column leading off twi allied corps of Turkish British and South Korean f o o soldiers thrust four and one-hal miles north of Suwon, site Korea's best airfield. At its northernmost point of ad vance, the column was only 14 road by Seoul. No Chinese Met at Inchon The South Korean commandoi killed 40 red Koreans at Inchon ami captured two. They met no Chinese. raiders swarmed ashore un der the guns of the American cruiser St. Paul, the Canadian de stroyer Cayuga, and the U. S. de stroyer Hank.

United Nations troops fought in the prc-dawn darkness Saturday Red patrols that had sneakei back into Suwon. Guns flashed In the night but the town was report ed cleared of Reds by daylight. Many of the North Koreans werp reported killed by ttielr own of ficers as they attempted to desert One allied officer said some Reds had discarded their uniforms ant joined bands of refugees moving along roads to the south. 4 Reatoni for Lull, Intelligence officers attributed the comparative lull in fighting to one of four reasons: 1. Red Koreans are pulling back after having fought as buffer troops while the Chinese preparec for a surprise power drive. 2. The Reds were so battered by allied artillery and air power that ttiey are pulling back to regroup. 3. Tho might be pulling back to parallel 38, the old border between south and north Korea for political reasons. 4., There is a remote possibilitj the enemy still might be hiding in the area overrun by allied troops.

Two power-packed Allied corps rolled nnrlh ItihiiF nlnni n front in western Korea after hurl- Ing back a strong Chinese commun- ist attack. Backed by bombarding warships and swarms of planes, United Na tions troops and tanks punched within less than 15 miles of Seou on the third day of their drive, a vital hill with the biggest bayonet charge of the war. An actual count showed 474 dead Chinese on the field of battle. Last night, the U.K. assault groups had to overcome heavy Red resistance before resuming the ad- vance this morning, Allied troops two miles north of Suwon repulsed enemy counterat- tacks and then resumed the ad- vance. The air base town of Suwon Is 17 miles south of Seoul. Other Red groups last night slip- ped inside Suwon, which Allied troops captured Friday. American soldiers routed the Reds In a bit- ter street fight The U.S. heavy cruiser St. Paul and two American destroyers shell- ed Seoul's port of Inchon Thursday night and Friday In support of the land operations. Thursday the St. Paul and two Canadian destroyers had bombarded the Inchon port area after silencing a Red battery on an Island offshore. Allied patrols said the enemy re- mained Inactive on the Korean central front. But patrols on the eastern and east-centrol sectors sent back word of fair-sized Red movements. 7 People Imprisoned In Spy Trial Prague, Jan.

Wl A bill to pull the teeth of Colorado's school district consolidation law laces tough going in the state legis- lature. Sen. John C. Phillips, Peyton re- publican and chairman of the sen- ate education commitlee, has pre- dicted passage of Ihe amending bill, which he and Sen. William Al- bion Carlson (R-Greeley) drafted. The amendment comes up for senate debate Monday. Opposilion appeared lo be grow- ing, spearheaded by Ihe Colorado Educalion Associaliou. It was this of teachers from all sections of the state which Phillips charged yesterday was op- erating a Ac- tion Committee. Unofficial reports said two sen- ators whom Phillips had counted upon for support had switched :heir votes as the result of com- munications from their districts. Two house members, who asked that they not be quoted by name, said an unofficial poll indicated the Phillips-Carlson bill could not pass .he house. They claimed there are 33 known votes against the amend- ing proposal. This would he a. bare of the 65 house votes. In addition, they said several other representatives "may" vote to re- :aln the present law. The amending jill might not even clear the edu cation committee in the house they said. Backers of the present law are counting on votes from Denver Pueblo, Boulder, Larimer, Las Anlnias, Huerfa.no and Mesa coun ties and the San Luis valley. Most of the opposition to the present law las come from the short-grass areas of eastern Colorado and the extreme southwest Colorado sec tion. Party lines apparently are split wide open.

The freeze, announced last nlghi ordered, wages held to their levels of last Thursday while the wage stabilization board seeks to work out a flexible formula. with the important exception of many food ordered to ;o no higher than the top level of Dec. 25. In most cases, that means the prices that were charg- ed Thursday. The price freeze, too, :s temporary pending the working out of separate orders for the vari- ous kinds of goods. William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor pro- tested: "Prices have steadily while wages have been pretty much standing still. Unless we are accord- ed the opportunity to work out in- equities, the freeze is unjust to ahor." The general reaction of business- men who commented was to offer iupport to the price control pro- Tarn, even though a number with- icld approval and forecast hard- hips in their various fields. Predict! Production Low Allan B. Kline, president of the Bureau Federation, predicted hat 'under controls "America will ose 10 to 15 per cent of its poten- ial production In five years." Congressmen who commented ;euerally agreed that controls had o come, unwelcome os they are to nany people, some said they think hey should have been slapped on nonths ago in view of the constant ise in the cost of living.

Disalle aid rationing is not planned in the mar future, and may not come at FBI Aid as Enforcer Asked The office of price stabilization, leaded by Disalle, sent an S.O.S. 0 the FBI and other bureaus for lelp in enforcement. President Truman ordered all 'ederal agencies to pitch in as leeded. One official said the OPS plans 1 "ruthless enforcement effort at he outset." Enforcement Heads Resigns Oddly, at tire same time, the OPS enforcement chief, suddenly resign- ed. He is Rear Admiral John H. "loover, retired naval officer. Another official somewhat hesi- afitly quoted Hoover as saying he ad "completed his job of setting up the enforcement organtzattdn." Govf, Freezes Most Prices and All Wages at Thursday's Figures; No Freeze of Food at Farm Level Washington, Jan. government, ending a period of dizzy uncertainty, tonight froze most prices mid nil wages at yes- terday's levels. Except for any increases wlilcli occurred today, no attempt was made to roll hack Iho price-wane ine which lias been rising so Taut. But officials said some price roll- backs miiy be achieved later In certain industries. The prim order, signed by Price Director Michael V.

Stearns told a ;roup celebrating the University of Colorado's 75th Anniversary to- ay: "my visit to Japan convinced me that American democracy, dapted to local needs, Is an ex- ortable commodity." Stearns recently returned from a rip to Korea and Japan as a gov- rnment observer. He asked that Americans square way to "the responsibilities of rorld power that have been thrust ,pon us." Speaking of the role universities lay in training men for the armed ervice, he stressed the importance f the schools, but added: "we are ot a training camp. It is our func- iou to discover how toe people of he earth may live in peace." Gov. Dan Thornton told the roup of students, faculty members nd state officials: "In this, your 75th Anniversary ear, the people of Colorado wish ie university well. You may count n their support. Perhaps it will ot always be as generously given s you would like. But they will upport you as much as they are hie Tile governor said the university as turned out u number of state laders, affording "low-cost b u t igh-quality education."

At commodity exchanges the sus- eusion order was issued just as ading was about to open when of- cials expressed uncertainty over revisions of the Washington order. The New York, New Orleans id Chicago cotton exchanges ere the first to announce there ould be no trading, today at least. The board of managers of the ew York produce exchange took milar action on trading in cot- mseed and soybean oil futures. In Chicago, major packers were osed, the agriculture depart- ent's marketing service was not icraling and only a few animals at the livestock market to- ay. Thus, there was no testing of ,e freeze order in today's uctiv- y. While commodity markets were osing, the New-York Stock Ex- lange had a good rally. Steels, rails, motors, oils and other lead- ing groups participated liberally In the A Wall Street broker explained It this way: "What more could you he said, "with prices frozen at their highest point that means more profit for everyone." Freeze at a Glance Washington, Jan. 27. UP) The government's new stabiliza- tion order at a glance: It freezes all wages as of mid- night last Thursday, and almost all prices at their highest levels during the period from last Dec. 19 to Jan. 25. Applicable it Once It is applicable immediately. It Is designed to hold back ris- ing prices and wages while gov- ernment officials work out celling formulas aimed at staving off dangerous inflation. For prices, it specifically pro- hibits buying or selling "in the regular course of business or trade" any commodity or service at a price higher than lhat charg- ed during the Dec. 19-Jan. 25 pe- of any contract or other obligation." Wage Restriction! For wages, it prohibits paying or receiving of w.-tges higher than those in effecl last Thursday. New empolyees must be paid no more than the Jan. 25 rate for the "jobs 'or which they were hired." Over- .ime, vacation and holiday pay, liensions, benefits, etc., also must lie held at the level in effect Jan. 25. Wage Appeals Allowed However, the wase regulation allows for appeals and the price order lists numerous exceplions nnd of ag- ricultural products sold on the farm. Both were apparently drawn up with an eye to future adjustment fcnse production act limits Dl- Sallu's power to check them. The order simply freezes all wages and salaries as of yes- terday, ft was sisned by Economic Stabilizer Eric Johnston and given to the press by Cyrus H. (Jhing, chairman of the wage stabilization board Ching Disgruntled DiSalle and Ching announced the double-barreled action at a hurriedly called news conference thai was a nightmare of confusion, with reporters dashing in and out, photographers standing on chairs, and many reporters unable to hear what was said. said tiie wage freeze or- der was handed to him only ten minutes before the news confer- ence. It was obvious that tile or- der had not been approved by China's nine-man board. ClmiR did not fay so, but inform- nits said he was unwilling to freeze wages without a unanimous vote of the hoard and the labor members of the board wouldn't vote "yes." But both the price and wage or- lers are temporary "stopgap" measures. The price freeze will be replac- ed as fast as possible by specific ceiling prices, industry by indus- try. The wage freeze will bo wiped out as soon as Ohing's hoard can complete a flexible wage policy, under which lagging wages will be lermitted to come up to a certain standard. Together. DiSalles office of price stabilization (OPS) and Citing's wage board have less than GOO employees to carry out the gi- gantic operations that began to- night. The OPA had about at its peak. But President Truman issued an executive order to help enforcement. lie called up or down as conditions dictate. Violations are punishable by fines up to one year in prison, or both. Congress May Draft Veterans with Brief Service in America Washington. Jan. house armed services committee today was reported considering opening the way to a draft of World War 11 veterans with brief service records nnd those who did not go vorscas. The now automatically ex- empts all veterans. Chairman Vinson (D-Ga) told a draft law hearing It Is hard for to understand why a youth War It should ho given automatic deferment whllo another who didn't serve must be required drafted) to itay In uniform II with the upon all other federal agencies to lend in- vestigators, economists, and other employees to the price and wage agencies. He also said the program needs the fullesl support, sacri- fice, and self-restraint of the whole country. Freeze at Farm Level The price order is extremely complex with respect to farm pro- ducts and food. First of all, there is no freeze t any too! prices at the farm level. But on the processing, whole- sale, and retail levels, food prices are frozen tight If the farm prices of those foods are above parity. Thus, beef, Veal, and lamb prices are frozen. At first officials were uncertain about porlc, but later tonight they unnounced that pork and all pork products definitely are included in Hie freeze. Parity is a sliding scale designed ,to keep farm prices ,at a fixed relation to the farmer's costs. The law prohibits price ceil- ings below parity. But most farm products are be- low parity. Poultry and eggs are examples. And on those.things, the wholesaler and retailer may not raise prices to increase their mar- gins, but when the farmer's price goes up, Ihe increase will be au- tomatically passed along all the way to the consumer. The defense production act ex- empts a number of other things 'rom price controls, including the irlces charged in the communica- tion and publication ewspapers, books, magazines, ra- dio, television, and theater admis- sions. Utilities and common car- riers are also exempt because their rates are fixed by other regulatory agencies. DiSalle replied to dozens of questions about the price order 'rom anxious reporters who were old they couldn't get copies of .he 45-page text until later in the light. Why didn't he roll back prices further Ihan one day He explained that such a move would have delayed the effective date when companies must start three or four weeks. Instead, the effective date of both the price and wage orders is last midnight. DiSalle said it may be possible to roll back some prices when ceilings are issued for specific pro- ducts. He said his work-in on three orders now that will conlrol retailers' and wholesalers' margins. Xow that the nation again has all-out controls, as in the war years, many wondered how long the controls would remain this time. On that point, Eric Johnston told the senate-house economic committee earlier in the day that he thought controls could be re- moved before too of the American people will understand the causes of inflation and cooperate to remove them. To accomplish this, he said taxes must he high enough to balance the budget, "not just this year hut for two or three and the people must accept curbs on the ability to buy on credit.
