The logic of the situation de- mands it. Many signs indicate it. N-3 inside information is needed to conclude that nothing can stop it, short of a direct restraining or- der from the American adminis- tration or the United Nations to General of the Army Douglas Mac- Arthur. The original directive governing the United Nations war effort in Korea in fact permits the high command to finish the job here without asking for further author- ization which explains why the South Korean divisions have al- ready oeen ordered to drive north- wa'-d without delay. It is still a puzzle why the Washington and Lake Success leadership have run the shocking risk of seeming to shilly-shally about the issue of the parallel during these last ten days. But no doubt it has been thought desirable to clothe the leaked mil- itary decision to go north in a few wisps of pretty political gauze. If this is the correct judg- ment of the situation and It is only a certain questions present themselves. First, it will be in- sane for the Chinese and or the Soviets to intervene in Ko- rea now, in mid-catastrophe, when the smallest, most eas- ily disguised intervention iivo months ago would have won the war there and then. But suppose the Chinese and or the Soviets are insane. What are their capabilities? Much less than has been gen erally supposed, would seem to be j the answer. The Chinese have two "armies" on the Yalu river, but these armies actually comprise on- ly about 150.COO men. with no airj p'ower, feeble logistical support and other weaknesses. In Eastern Siberia the Russians have ground, naval and air forces comprising about men, while the Chi- nese also have other armies else- where in Manchuria. These are powerful forces by any standard, but eastward of ichest'and other injuries suffered in the accident.

By Tom OchHtree New York Britain assured Russia and Communist China today that Genera! MacArthur's forces in moving through North Korea would not advance beyond the Ko- rean border. Keneth Younger, British minister of state, gave this "solemn assur- ance" during final debate' In the U. N. general assembly on an eight- power resolution authorizing Mac- Arthur's forces to proceed beyond the 38th parallel. The assembly rejected a last-min- ute Soviet attempt to gain North Korean participation in discussions of the Korean case. Then it moved quickly toward final ratification of the eight-power resolution, initiated by Britain and supported by the United States. By a vote of six in favor, 41 against and six abstentions, the assembly rejected Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Jakob A. Malik's request that both North and South Korea be invited to appear before the United Nations as equal parties to the dispute. The assembly's 60-nation political committee approved the eight-power plan Wednesday by a vote of 47 to Brannan Plan Losing Favor, BarkleySays Milwaukee The Brannan farm plan for the support of agri- culture, says Vice-President Bark- ley, is losing favor with ths ad- ministration.

Plans reportedly jwere under serious consideration to boost the Air Force up to 95 to 110 groups. President Truman said last week the next question is. how much do the North Koreans themselves have left? Not very much, appears to be the answer. In the southern fight- considered v. thev are now have lost nearly men. North of the parallel, they are be- lieved to have left about But these men who remain are mostly conscripts and trainees, with too few convinced Commu- nist officers, and very few indeed of the real hardcore units that give us so much trouble in the south. Beyond doubt, there is a lot of dirty work still to be done, at the cost of further blood and treasure. But it should not be too long be- fore the organized North Korean forces cease to exist. Finally, when this happy day comes, it will still be need- ful to ask how much guerrilla trouble will there be? Not very much, again appears to be the answer, providing the Rhee government is wise. The greatest sin of the newspaper trade in this fighting has been the continuous misuse of the word "guerrilla." Quite literally, there have been no proven cases of true guerrilla activity since the very- early period of the Korean war. Everywhere behind the. front, of course, infiltrators have always been at work; but these infiltra- tors never appeared more than six (Continued on Page 9, Column 6.)

More Civilians In Defense Dept. Washington The Korean j [war boosted civilian employment (in the Defense department by 372 during July and August, the Byrd committee reported today. The increase brought to the number of persons employed by the department as of August 30. Total civilian employment In the executive branch of the govern- ment rose to at the end of August. The committee said this was the first time it had passed the mark since October 1949, exclusive of temporary cen- sus employes hired last spring. The committee is a Senate-House group, headed by Senator Byrd which attempts to bring pressure for reduction of what it regards as nonessential expendi- tures.

Cabinet Dogs' Draw of John L Lewis he were the nation's No, 1 dog catcher, John L. Lewis said yesterday, the first thing he'd do would be to impound "the sad dogs which now infest our State depart- ment." President Truman had been quoted Wednesday as saying, "I wouldn't appoint John L. Lewis dog-catcher." He couldn't afford to. the Mine Workers' chieftain retort- ed yesterday, or he "would have more brains in the dog depart- ment than in the Department of State." Lewis said in a letter to Colo- rado State Senator Neat Bishop: "Naturally, the first duty of the bureau of the dog, if staff- ed by the undersigned, would be to collect and impound the sad dogs, the .intellectual poodle dogs and the pusillanimous pups which now infest our State de- partment." (The dictionary says pusilla- nimous means: "Destitute of manly strength and firmness of mind; of weak or mean spirit; Bishop had started the whole thing a couple of years ago by suggesting-jokingly to Mr. Tru- man, an old friend, that he ap- point Lewis ambassador to Mos- cow because he offers "a more formidable appearance than Stalin, roars 'no' louder than Gromyko, hurls more choice in- vectives than Vishinsky." It was in Mr. Truman's prompt reply, made public, by Bishop only this week, that the President said he wouldn't name Lewis dog catcher. Since the President wouldn't want more brains in the dog department that in the State department, Lewis said in his letter to Bishop made public here, "his remarks to you are eminently justified." Lewis also said the President's appointment of a dog catcher would entail "creation of a new federal bureau with its accom- panying personnel of thousands of employes and, in conse- quence, aa increase to the tax burden." There was no indication whether Mr. Truman, now cruising in Chesapeake Bay, had heard about Lewis' retort. ithe program was planned i hostilities started in Korea and that the war triggered it. To Continue Calls Moreover, Pentagon spokesmen said today that as far as they knew the calling up of reserves and draftees would go ahead with- out change, whatever happens in Korea. But cessation of the Korean war would help solve an especially thorny problem for the Army. Under the Western European de- fense project the United States is committed to augmenting its forces there. The Army has been faced with the dilemma of finding troops for this purpose, while at the same time meeting the heavy demands of the Korean war. It now has only ten divisions, of which six are in [Korea and one in Germany.
