Tanks clanked between hills cover- ed with glistening snow. Fluffy white clouds sailed overhead in a bright blue sky. The expected battle of Kapsan turned into a Red rout Sunday morning.

But the trap was disclosed by two Reds. Terrified by the ap- proaching tank column, they jump- ed from their foxholes and ran. The American tanks opened up on the hillside where the Reds were dug in. As U. S. infantrymen clos- ed in, the tanks lumbered across a stream, up the hillside and over the Reds' rock barricades. 65 Surrender Associated Press Correspondent Tom Stone, only newsman with the 17th during the battle, said it last- ed only 30 minutes.
