Patton president of the organization replied in Den ver that he knows of no one who has responsibility in our national or state organizations who is a member of the communist party Patton said he has frequently denounced communism In Washington the organiza tion issued a statement in Pat tons name calling Bridges char ges a lie and saying it is sig nificant that the smear was mouthed from the

By HAL BOYLE Tokyo days after fighting broke out in Korea the United Nations force still can play only the role of fireman It hasnt as yet been able to take the 1st real forward step toward carrying out its announced intention of acting as a policeman to enforce peace in the land of morning calm That is the blunt truth today nearly 11 weeks after the battle for Korea began And it must be faced bluntly by those groups of easy optimists both here and at home who blithely talk of having the war over by Thanksgiving This bland confidence can be based only on 2 things 1 A blind hope that the North Koreans have been so worn down by battle attrition and air and naval bombardment that their front will collapse 2 A belief that the United Nations soon will throw into ac tion a tremendous ground force able by sheer weight of men and metal to overwhelm the enemy quickly Unfortunately there is no trust worthy evidence along the battle front that the enemy is weaken ing He appears if anything to be getting stronger And there is as yet no sign here that the United Nations has muscle to end the war in a single mighty knockout blow The sad truth is that the reds still are conducting a siege per ilous the allies withdrew to the Naktong river line on Aug 1 the communists have been able almost at will to start a major fire anywhere they chose along that 120mile defensive perimeter And they have done so Time after time it has taken the utter strength of the United Na tions fire department to clang up and stamp out or try to contain these blazes The last big bonfire ranged from the southern sector by the Korean straits clear around the battle front to Pohang on the Japan sea That fire is still burning dan gerously In some cases the UN fire de partment itself has been all but engulfed by the bandit arsonists from the north And the men who serve in it no longer have the comfortable delusion that the reds are anywhere near running out of matches They would like to believe they could quit being a fire department tomorrow organize as a police force destroy or capture the in retire to the ordi nary civil strife of life at home before the rice paddies here freeze over But there lias falter ing of the enemy to console those who feel this will be mere ly a war for the sunshine sol dier and the summer patriot On both sides it is growing in depth and bitterness It may Jave a wintry decision some veteran combat of ficers final outcome may he postponed until spring or even next summer As is usual in such situations the experienced frontline com manders are more pessimistic about how long it will take be cause they know what they are up against now They know also the time it takes even for an industrial giant like America to gear up its factories flush out its armies and ferry men weapons and food 7000 miles to the battle front Before I left the United States a retired staff officer told me it would take 8 American or Euro pean divisions of full World war II combat strength plus all the South Koreans available to launch a victory offensive here He sail anything short of such a grouni force would meet a long stale possibly even be pushei back into the sea That was D weeks ago Recentl a high ranking officer here echoe the same thought Even after we get 8 division of the type we had in the las war supported by corps artillerj we cant be sure how long it wi take to end this business he sai frankly If the enemy only ha a crust in front of us we ca crack through and wind the whol thing up in a few days or weeks But if the enemy can defend in depth and keep bringing up frcsl troops and tanks coul go on for another 6 nonths Report UN Troops Score Slight Gains Communist Attack on Taegu Falters 7 Miles From City By RUSSELL BRINES Tokyo troops lacked out slight gains at op posite ends of the rainlashed Korean warfront Friday against dangerously rebuild ing red forces Little fighting took place on the whole 120mile battleline Americans surmised this meant a North Korean build up during the lull for a new offensive smash A U S 8th army spokes man said the red drive by 50 000 menon Taegu main allied base on the central front had petered out probably from lack of supplies and sufficient manpower for the present The reds had pushed to within 7 miles of Taegu be fore the U S 1st cavalry di vision and South Koreans broke the back

the east coast in their efforts to close a 5mile gap in their lines AP Correspondent Bill Ross at the front reported the U S and South Korean troops opened separate at tacks through the murky weather to try to close the gap Progress Slow The hole remained after hasty battlefijont patching had sewed to gether a bigger hole punched out by a red breakthrough earlier in the week At dusk the doughboys had made little progress They were halted by rugged terrain plus the drench ing rain which reduced air support to 6 sorties Friday Taegu threatened by 50000 of the 130000 reds on the battleline appeared safe for now The reds were stopped north of it by 1st cavalrymen and South Koreans The Americans counterattacked but had to withdraw from gains made on a hill north of Taegu when expected air
