Dispatches cleared by heavy mil- itary censorship said the ROKs smashed to a bloody standstill a Chinese attack aimed at the vital road center of Kumhwa, western anchor of the Central Front. Then they launched a dar- ing counterattack which recap- tured two outpost hills.

McCarthy has just suffered his first total, unmitigated, unqualified defeat by the White House, The Administration strategists are still seeking to preserve the meaning- less facade of Republican unity. They have allowed McCarthy to conceal his defeat behind a typi- cal smoke screen of misleading statements. But the background story proves that the junior sena- tor from Wisconsin went down for the count of ten, all the same. The occasion of this remarkable event was the case of William P. Bundy, an official of the Central j steady movement north toward the j Kumsong River. Edwards said it was more a reoccupation of lightly held terri- tory than a genuine riproaring offensive such as the Chinese launched Monday night. In some places Chinese resisted only with small arms and machine gun fire and lacked artillery.

For its support of France's anti- Communist war, however, the Uni- ted States has drawn considerable criticism from Asians who inter- pret the French campaign as an effort to reimpose old style, white man imperialism on the Indochi- nese.

There was no hint of what was discussed during the secret eleventh- hour conference, but sources said there was no question but what the U.

Clark told newsmen before flying back to his Tokyo headquarters that he talked over the truce situa- tion with the U, N. delegation, led by Lt. Gen. William K.

The columns of Soviet tanks, troops and armored cars stamped and rumbled ostentatiously before dawn through Stalin Alice, a riot focus point a month ago. The Rus- sians poured into East Berlin from the southeast, the east and the north. Soviet martial law, proclaimed at the June 17 outbreak, was lifted in East Berlin only last Saturday night. The last of the Rus- sian armored troops who put down the rebellion withdrew at that time. Soviet Forcei It could not be confirmed im- mediately whether the Soviet forces had also gone back into other East German cities where martial law ended last weekend. At Merseburg, near Halle, a Soviet-owned Buna, synthetic rub- ber plant has been paralyzed since Wednesday by a sitdown strike of workers demanding release of comrades jailed after the June 17 rebellion. An anti-government slowdown has been under way at the Zeiss Optical works at Jena since Tues- day. Zeiss employes walked out last Saturday but were forced back: on the job Tuesday when the local Russian Command threatened to "shoot every tenth striker." The new Russian march into East Ber- lin apparently was intended to pre- vent such strikes from spreading to the East zone capital. Stalin Alice In East Berlin 82 tanks we'-e counted by German eyewitnesses on Stalin Alice in the first hour of the march. Thirty-eight truckloads of ar- mored infantry followed the tanks through the troubled housing pro- ject center.

Harrison was said to have told the Reds: 1. The U. N. will not meet their demand for the recapture of the prisoners freed on orders of Presi- dent Syngman Rhee. 2. The U. N. has given adequate assurances that South Korea will abide by a truce. 3. There no longer is any reason why the Communists should delay signing an armistice. President Eisenhower's truce en- voy back in Washington after more than two weeks of conferences aimed at winning Rhee over to a truce, told Congress Thursday the South Korean President promised in writing to co-operate in an armi- stice. Clark told newsmen he had "noth- ing to say" when asked about pros- pects for a truce signing. The U.

We have an for executive sessions and neither I nor any of my sub- ordinates will in any way violate it." Accuse Allies Peiping radio accused the Allies of walking out on the negotiations Wednesday and Clark later called the Red broadcast a violation of the secrecy agreement. The U. N. commander flew to Munsan in a light plane Friday morning and immediately went into conference with Harrison and the three other U. S. truce dele- gates. The fifth member of the Allied truce team, South Korean Maj. Gen. Choi Duk Shin, has boycotted both Munsan and Panmunjom since May 25. The boycott is an expres- sion of President Rhee's violent opposition to a truce which does not guarantee prompt unification of his nation.

Many Britons think he was exiled from his post as a palace aide because the 22- year-old princess reportedly wants to marry him. But if his absence or the talk about them bothered the princess, there was no outward sign of it on her pretty face as she and Queen Mother Elizabeth arrived at Lon- don Airport by Comet jet airliner after a 16-day tour of Rhodesia. Margaret quickly set at rest any apprehension that she might be embarrassed by the stories being told about her. She faced the Londoners behind the airport rail- ing with utmost poise and confi- dence. Dressed in pink, she stood under a silver wing of the sleek airliner and waved gaily at the1 crowd. Queen Elizabeth II, in a light green frock and white shoes and gloves, was at the airport to greet her younger sister and her mother. With the Duke of Edinburgh, she entered the plane for five minutes of private greeting. After goodbyes to the crew and officials, the royal party drove off to Buckingham Palace and to Clarence House, where the Queen Mother and Margaret now reside.
