The American hill positions were described as good for defensive fighting. Red pressure mounted on almost all fronts. At Hwanggan, near Kumchon, First cavalrymen offered stubborn resistance "to each North Korean attack." The communique said South Ko- reans were battling for Yongdok on the east coast anchor of the battle But the city, once re- ported in southern hands, belong- ed to "neither side." As the battle progressed the Americans seized the heights at Sangmun, ten miles east of Chin- ju, King said. The Reds closed be- hind them. Quickly the Americans seized positions at Wonbung1, five miles southwest of the village of Chungam, King reported. Loaded for Combat The U. S. Marines came loaded, for heavy combat.

The inade- quate existing American conven- tional forces have been w h o 1 ly committed in Korea. And through- out the rest of the non-Soviet1 world there is a yawning mili- tary vacuum.
