Associated Press correspondent John Randolph, reporting from the scene on the Central Front, said the drive "obviously is a new major I hardy to do more than hope until Ike and Advisers Study Tax Cuts By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH AUGUSTA, Ga. Dwight D. Eisenhower and his fiscal advisers are taking a cautious approach to the problem of reducing federal spending and the companion goal of cutting taxes as soon as possible, A week after Eisenhower's election, the signs are there will be little or no bullish talk about quick achievement of either goal by the Republican administration over in January. I T Man Killed, Two Hurt in Stillwafer Fire Russell Pledges 'Every Possible' Support to Ike Big Objective World Peace, Senator States Evidence of that came after the weekend conferences the general htld at his vacation retreat here with GOP leaders. Sen. Eugene D. Millikin of Colo-1 rado, who will be chairman of the tax-writing Senate Finance Com- mittee, said he would like nothing better than to see taxes reduced. But he added it would be fool- effort" by the Reds to win back the latest gain made by the Allies in the 29-day-old battle for the Kumhwa ridges. One American military adviser said the hour-long kickoff barrage was the heaviest artillery concen- tration he had ever seen. At p.m., the first Red in- fantrymen advanced through com- munications trenches in a drizzling rain and under low hearvy clouds. By nightfall the attack had built up to two-battalion size. Chinese artillery continued to pound the Al- lied defense positions. Randolph said heavy action raged along the entire Sniper Ridge sector. The new assault came as action stepped up ali along the front. The Eighth Army said the Reds had suffered casualties on the Eastern and Western Fronts the last two days. Earlier today United Nations infantrymen threw back Red at- tacks on both the Eastern and Western ends of the bleak, rain- swept Korean battleline as well as a company to 175 men- attack on Sniper Ridge. On the Western Front, Allied infantrymen repulsed a second attack by 350 Chinese Reds on Porkchop Hill. Only four hours earlier the Reds had stormed their way through barbed wire and into U.N. trenches on the hill before being driven off. Eighth Army troops -fought a bloody hand-to-hand midnight battle to eject the Reels in the first battle. The second lasted less than an hour.

The president-elect is awaiting Congress sees the budget President Truman will submit in January, before Eisenhower's inauguration. Key to Program The spending program, said Mil- likin, will be the key to the whole thing. And while he noted that Eisen- hower, once in office, will be free to recommend a reduced program, the senator didn't appear optimis- tic about the possibility of big-scale cuts that would open the way for tax reductions. A similar note of caution was sounded by Joseph M. Dodge, De- troit banker who drew the assign- ment at the Eisenhower conference of representing the president-elect in the Budget Bureau until inaug- uration day. After that, Dodge may head the bureau. He refused to speculate on what the new administration may be able to do regarding taxes and spending. To do so, he said, would be a dangerous thing. Eisenhower himself pledged dur- ing the campaign to cut both spending and he didn't fair.

But Judge Gunnar H. Nord- bye doubled it Monday after deny- ing a motion for a new trial. The surety firm which provided the original bond canceled it when sen- tence was passed.
