(AP Wirephoto to The Republican-Herald) Ike Super Council To Guide Cold War of a super council in the Eisenhower ad- ministration to mastermind a cold war offensive against the Kremlin seemed assured today by the announcement that John Foster Dulles will be the next secretary of state. Dulles, like President-elect Eisenhower who announced his selec- tion for the post Thursday, has 'made clear that his first major new goal in foreign policy will be to wrest the initiative in the global conflict from Russia. x Dulles has declared that one way to go about this is to set up a Cabinet council, including not only some regular Cabinet members but also "ministers without portfolio" charged only with high level cold war planning. Word that the veteran diplomat, recently a Truman ambassador in the negotiations of the Japanese Peace Treaty, would get the num- ber one Cabinet post next Jan. 20 was generally well received by State Department officials here despite some bitterness toward new weapons as the hydrogen j him resulting from his attacks on bomb, seems likely to emerge, Truman foreign policies during the from the crisis that is now over- j presidential campaign.

He announced three cabinet ap- pointments Thursday, two of them for offices that deal directly with the Korean problem. They were John Foster Dulles, veteran foreign policy adviser, for secretary of state, and Charles E. Wilson, president of General Mo- tors, for secretary of defense. Oregon's Gov. Douglas McKay was named for secretary of the interior. At the same time, Eisenhower's office and the Department of De- fense announced there will be no news reports about his Korean trip while he is outside the United only one news writer will go with him. 3 To Make Trip His press secretary, James C. Hagerty, told correspondents here I yesterday that three news media representatives will be taken on the trip, a correspondent, a "still" photographer, and a newsreel cam- eraman. Secretary of Defense Robert Lovett announced earlier that "no news reports of the President- designate's'activities will be cleared through the Korean Thea- ter of Operations until after the President-designate leaves Korea. Lovett .also said there will be no published schedule, relating to Eisenhower's departure, return, or whereabouts, at any time.

Western Allies moved closer to agreement today on changes they hoped would bring full support that of the U. India's compromise plan for ending the Korean War prisoner deadlock. An eighteen-nation group headed by the U. S., Britain and France planried to meet behind closed doors in the U.N. this morning to work over amendments to plan submitted Wednesday by In- dia's V. K. Krishna Menon. Other nations in the group are Canada, Australia, Turkey, Denmark and Colombia. They have as a working basis changes suggested yesterday by British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, who said the Indian plan brings the U. N. nearer to agree- ment on the one outstanding issue holding up an armistice in Korea prisoner of war problem. Strong American objections to Putnam May Postpone Soft Coal Decision WASHINGTON Iffi Economic Allied Infantry Stops Fanatical Chinese Attack All Other Red Drives Halted On Frozen Slopes By ROBERT TUCKMAN SEOUL CB Allied infantrymen smashed a fanatical Chinese as- sault today on Sniper j Ridge the Central Korean Front and stopped lesser attacks elsewhere on the battle line. A U. S. Eighth Army spokesman told correspondents: "No ground' was lost." He said an estimated 750 Chinese i stormed the frozen, forbidding slopes of Sniper Ridge but were killed, wounded or driven back by stubborn South Korean troops who have lost and retaken the height 16 times in 38 days. Some of the fighting was hand- to-hand. Battalion Slams A Red battalion slammed against Pinpoint Hill, the dominating ground of Sniper Ridge Thursday night. The Communists supported their assaults with a tremendous barrage of mortar and artillery. Within an hour, one company of Chinese pulled out and left two companies to push ahead. But by 10 p.m. the drive 'was blunted. The Allied spokesman said four Communist armored vehicles, probably tanks, rained 50 caliber machine gun fire on ROK positions on Sniper just before midnight.

Count on Bombs Once a U. S. senator and a close associate of the late Sen. Arthur Vandenberg and of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey, Dulles had a hand in the formation of the United Na- and in obtaining bipartisan in government. Lodge led the fight for Eisen- hower's nomination as the Repub- lican candidate, both before and i commission, an umpire to targets. As n result, even continu- ing American aid plus recruitment of the Germans will not produce a force of much more than sixty-five divisions by 1954. Certain of our allies, most notably the British chiefs of staff, have therefore de- veloped a new strategic concept, to rationalize, as it were, their own lowering of targets. This new Western defense concept comes in three parts. First, the primary deterrents of Soviet aggression are to be Ameri- ca's strategic airpower and Amer- ica's stock of atomic weapons, prospectively reinforced by the hy- J for it.

He was one of those who helped to new president, becom- put across the Marshall Plan for Eisenhower's "Harry Hop- European recovery and to shape the North Atlantic Treaty Organi- zation. In April, 1950, Dulles became a full-time consultant to Acheson. Last March Dulles resigned his consultant position to be free to criticize the administration and to campaign actively for a Republi- can victory in November. In the course of this campaign he broadly supported all efforts to ing supplied, by serving their communications with the Russian homeland, as well as to destroy these attacking forces themselves. On the surface, this looks lite a scheme that will allow our hard- pressed allies to stabilize their re- armament at approximately the present levels; will allow us at home to stabilize our aid to Eur- ope also; and will afford what is essential a secure defense of the free world. In the end, the new concept will do all these things. (Continued on Page S, Column 4.) ALSOPS global strategy in the cold war. i NEW YORK W) Federal Judge Urges Super Council I Irving R.

The ninety-eight division scheme for Western European defense was based on an estimate that the Kremlin could attack with 100 divisions across northern Eur- ope, and send seventy-five more southwards against Italy, Yugo- slavia and Greece.

Although the Indians have said they would not have introduced their resolution without reasonable assurance that both Communist and Western nations would accept it, there still is no reaction from the Russians. In his speech yesterday, deliv- ered after he had a luncheon con- ference with Eisenhower, Eden asked Menon to revise two main points of his resolution. Allied artillery drove off the vehicles. It was cold 10 degrees above zero. Both sides kept up. a crackling exchange of gunfire, aad early this morning a suicide platoon of Chi- nese charged Sniper Ridge, hurl- ing hand grenades when they got near the ROK foxholes. But the South Koreans held their ground and shortly after dawn the Chinese pulled out. On Western Front Eighth Army headquarters re- ported a series of Communist at- tacks all along the 155-mile battle line. On the extreme Eastern Front, North Korean troops stab- bed twice Thursday night and twice this morning at Allied positions south, of Kosong in the Anchor Hill sector. All the probes were driven off. On the Western Front, west of Yonchon, Chinese platoons attacked two outposts in early morning dark- ness and U. N. troops withdrew temporarily. Allied field guns pum- j meled the enemy and Allied forces I reoccupied the positions without j opposition. On the Central Front, southeast' of Capitol Hill, 175 Chinese hit an Allied outpost early today and en- gaged U. N. defenders in hand-to- hand fighting. The battle raged for three hours until Eighth Army troops brought up reinforcements and the Chinese broke contact at a.m. and withdrew. William Green, AFL President 28 Years, Dead WASHINGTON OB William Green, 81, president of the AFL, died today at his home in Coshoc- ,on, 0., the AFL announced. An AFL official said death came at p. m. He said Green died of a heart attack. It was the second death of a major labor leader within a month. Philip Murray, head of the rival CIO, collapsed and died at San Francisco Nov. 9. Green started as a coal miner and rose to the presidency of the Federation. His original ambition had been to be a Baptist preacher. The man largely responsible for his original choice in 1924 was John L. Lewis. A little more than a decade later Lewis split with the AFL and formed the rival Congress of Industrial Organiza- tions. Thus was created the great division in organized labor in the United States and the two former Ike Appoints Brownell as Attorney General George M. Humphrey Of Cleveland Treasury Secretary NEW YORK Dwight D, Eisenhower today designated George M. Humphrey, of Cleve- land, Secretary of the Treasury. He named Herbert Brownell Jr., of New York, attorney general, and rfarold E. Stassen, former governor of Minnesota, director of the Mu- tual Security Agency. Brownell, New York lawyer, was a leader of Eisenhower's cam- paign for the GOP nomination, and he directed strat- egy in the elec- tion campaign. Stassen it now president of the University o i Pennsylvania. He also was a key figure in Eisen- hower's nomina- tion. Humphrey, 62. is president or the M. A. Hanna Co of Cleveland. H. Brownell, Jr. jje is a director of numerous large corporations. It was the second day in a row that Eisenhower had handed out a new list of appointees who will take over key posts in his admin- istration. James Hagerty, the press secretary, announced the new designations. The following are some of. the positions held by Humphrey in in- dustry: Ore Firm Executive President of the M. A. Hanna Company, coal and iron, ore ship- pers; .chairman of the executive committee, National Steel Corp.; Dulles advocated not only the crea- tion of a super Cabinet perhaps through revision of the present National Security Council also: 1. A psychological campaign by "peaceful means" to make Russia uncertain of its hold over its satel- lite nations in Eastern Europe and over China. 2. Development of means to de- fend weak nations on a global basis, probably by threatening Russia with direct retaliation if Communist forces tried to open up any more Koreas. 3. Action to streamline relations between the departments the government dealing with foreign as state, defense and the Mutual Security Agency so that decisions on legislative action could be more efficiently worked out and the time of Cabinet mem- bers spared for policy making. Dulles' lines on Korea has beep exactly the same as that of Presi- dent-elect Eisenhower. In a speech at Boston Oct. 11 he estimated that 20 million South Koreans should be able to provide an army which "could gradually replace the estimated U. S. troops now in front line positions." convicted atomic spies. Last week the United States Supreme Court refused for a second time to rehear the case of the husband and wife prisoners.
