Soldier in Korean War By DON WHITEHEAD j On Chongcnon River Front Korea purely personal story is in essence at least the story of the disappointment of every soldier in the U S army in Korea Three weeks ago I thpughtthe war was all over but a final quick march to the Manchurian border The army had the same idea nd every man jack was thinking about how long it would take him to get out of here I felt the job was done and there was that vacation ahead in the sunshine of Hawaii There was no doubt the North Korean reds had been soundly and completely whipped I had seen them come out of the hills bythe thousands to surrender or to join ihe columns of refugees streaming down the roads Ameri can troops were moving toward the Manchurian border in a tri umphant final sweep Starts Shopping Orgr I hurried to Tokyo and plunged into an orgy of shopping Gifts for wife and daughter and the grandson Ive never seen Knick knacks for relatives and friends and even a few for myself I even made a reservation that guaranteed a plane would deliver me in Honolulu within a few hours time for that vacation It was good to get back to Tokyo and good food and clean sheets and hot baths and noises ridlouder than the honk of an au tomobile horn I said to myself No more being shot at no more jeep fides to shake up my liver no more dust and filth and grime and smell of death There would be no more com muting byplane for 1300 milesto deliver one story I could recover some of those 34pounds I had dropped along the way Thought War Over Life wasv good The long night mare of the Korean war was over for me and it would be over soon for all the UnitedNations troops Thats the way of us were thinking just 3 short weeks ago I rememberlying inbed one night thinking how good it was to be alive and to be safe again how goodit was to be the lucky ones Many of my friends had not been so lucky They were among those killed or maimed by war My luck had held through 36 months of the last war andf 4 one a scratch I was glad it was all over I kept thinking of Charles Rose cranz the little photographer we all knew as Rosie Rosie was a wonderful little guy He was the kind who always was doing something for his a can of beer when beer was impossible to find or sitting in his undershirt and shorts playing a piano by the hour just for the pleasure of those around him Chinese Changed It We all loved Rosie but our love couldnt shield him when a plane exploded as he was returning to the war from Japan Someone said of Rosie all of us owed a little something to Rosie which we could never re pay but Rosie was gone and I was glad that the war was over and that no one else would be snatched away as Rosie was When a friend dies a little of you dies with him All this was past now because the war was overV That was what I thought until the morning the news came that the Chinese reds were in the war Sadly I cancelled my plane reservation to Hawaii I packed away aH the gifts and went on another shopping this time to buy winterclothing for the cold North Korean front I have come back to the war back to the filth and the grime and the cpld and the noises I had hoped never to hear crashing of guns Cold Wave Coming Close By UNITED PRESS Temperatures climbed a few degrees in many parts of the country but forecasters said a new cold wave Was oh the midwest fromCanada Forecasters said a mass
