But again as usual, the North Koreans had been unable to press their advan- tage and the Americans, in their almost bouncy way, had recovered themselves. On the afternoon after the rout, the counter-attack was being or- ganized.

Now Yonpsan, stink- ing of the dead and the burn- ing, was the front. Just be- yond the village, a new attack was being organized. Along road running out of the town, soldiers were crowded.

A British naval task force was off Korea in the general area of the 38th parallel where, the State department said, the incident oc- curred. A British naval spokesman in Tokyo said he had not received any report from the task force about such an incident. Mud-spattered Allied troops halt- ed the southern flank of the drive in the northeast two to five miles north of Kyongju.

Dewey of New York was back in ths political arena today as immediate atten- tion focused on primary elections in Nevada, and Utah. In Nevada, veteran Senator Pat McCarran is being challenged for the Democratic nomination by a former bomber pilot. In Utah, the chief attraction is a Republican scrap for the Senate nomination. Not Dewey an- nounced last night that he has re- versed his earlier decision and will run for a third term as gov- ernor. He is the best G.O.P, vote- getter in the state and party lead- ers have put heavy pressure on him to change his June 17 deci- sion _to step clown. New York Democrats and Re- publicans meet in conventions to- morrow and Thursday to select their important Senate-governor slates for the November elections. Dewey was assured of nomination, probably on Thursday. ew York Air Crash Kills 13, fO Survive Utica, N. wreckage strewn over a farm pasture was !all that remained today of a big airliner that carried 13 persons to their death.

The tank captain, lookiag a little like the hero of an interplanetary ro- mance in his odd helmet, hurried- ly explained the plan. The tanks and machine guns would cover the attack. Under the curtain of their fire, a company of engineers would take the big hill on the left. The infantry company, hastily assem- bled from men who had escaped from the division's overrun for- ward positions, would advance along the hills to the left of the! valley, until they had reached a little central hill at the end. 'In two mimiies, you open fire and the shouted the tank captain, star- tling loudly, at the enrl of his explanation.

Packing winds well over 100 miles an boor near the center, the storm's forward movement dropped from 16 to eight miles per hour before it moved inland. Latest reports indicate the hurricane will not reach the northeast Florida coast in the St. Aagustine-Jacksonville area before tonight, unless there is some increase in forward speed.
