Business at a newspaper office spells the continual clatter of type- writers from the early hours cf the morning, the nine-hour chatter of three Associated Presc teletype machines bringing In news from ail over the world, the ringing of telephones over an undertone of linotype machines echoing in from the composing room, and the hustle and bustle of reporters and editors and dozens of other Republican-Herald personnel dashing about to meet the deadline for all material going into the day's edition. In spite of the day's hustling. The Republican-Herald today takes time out to pay special tribute to its 66 staff member: Reporters, NEAR IN KOREA SecondSeties 40 Hurt in Erie Train Wreck, lifttU, Oil Tank Car Blows Up In 8th Inning editors, columnists, photographers, proofreaders, compositors, pressmen and advertising, circulation, clerical and bookkeeping personnel.

Fire Siren Wakes Girl Following 40-Hour Sleep U.N. Orders North, South Areas United MacArthur Has Men for Final Assault By Russell Brines Tokyo A United Nations army of up to troops mass- ed today to yank down the iron curtain of parallel 38 and wipe out Red resistance in all Korea. The non-Korean allies kept south of the artiOcial border stood ready cross and join South Koreans who have already pierced the cur- tain and probed 60 miles or more into the Communist-ruled north- land. General MacArthur's headquar- ters made it clear that all his I forces are reaCy to go into North Korea as needed. Non-Korean troops had been held south of 38 since the South Koreans stabbed across Sunday. The question of their crossing from liberated South Korea was considered only as a military is- sue General MacArthur's head- quarters said, and not as a polit- ical hurdle at this stage. Given U. N. Approval The United Nations at Lake Suc- cess Wednesday night directed MacArthur, in effect, to use any means at his command to unify Korea. Parallel 38 was drawn originally to designate American and Rus- sian zones for acceptance of the Japanese surrender after World War II. The Allied political aim is a uni- fied, independent Korea. Indoctri- nated and armed by Russia, tho North Koreans plunged across the parallel June 25. The historic ini- tial U. N. armed peace-enforce- ment action crushed the Red in- vaders in three months. To mop up the remnants, the U. N. forces waited only for com- pletion of the buildup eastward from the Seoul-Inchon west coast area and for final decisions on strategy. There was no indication of where the main Allied, blows would or whether they might be amphibious or overland. The Red regime continued to ig- nore surrender ultimatums first aired by MacArthur last Sunday and repeated since. American Marines punched northward from rubbled Uijongbu, 20 miles south of 38 and about 11 miles northeast of Seoul. Resist- ance was scattered. 60 Miles Beyond Parallel On the east coast, the South Ko- rean Third division -was 60 miles north of the Red border. It was within 25 miles of Tongchon, where the Reds might attempt a stand in defense of Wonsan, an indus- trial center, some 25 miles farther north. At least Korean repub- lican troops were already in Red territory. These are the capital di- vision inland and the third on the Sea of Japan coast. Other South Korean divisions to- taling perhaps 30.000 men were either across the bouiicary or ar- rayed along it. There had been ficial and to whose or- ,ders sent the Republican forces j across the boundary Sunday.
