wounded and missing for the whole Korean War The tentative total was given in what the Pentagon said would be the last regular weekly summary of battle casual ties It showed a net decrease of 17 fromlast week reflect ing the addition of 19 killed a decrease of 23 missing and the transfer of 19 wounded to a nonbattle classification Auditing ofcasualty figures will continue for months possibly years before a final figure can be reached to tell the full story of the cost of the Korean conflict in terms of dead wounded and miss ing The revision process will inevit ably raise the tentative
