TUCKMAN SEOUL, Korea (.fl Battle-hard- ened South Korean infantrymen re- captured Capitol Hill in a wild night bayonet charge and then threw back counterattacking Chi- nese at daybreak today. A U. S. Eighth Army staff officer said "the ROKs (Republic of Korea troops) are on that hill to stay." In five days of vicious close-in fighting for the Central Front hill, Daley, McLeod Victors in Rural District The Winona County primary voting, by precincts, is reported on page 7; reports on voting in Western Wisconsin counties are on page 14; reports on South- eastern Minnesota counties on page 14. Harold E. Schultz, public service company employe, and John D. McGill, attorney, won places on the November election ticket for the office of city representative in the state legislature in Tuesday's pri- mary election, eliminating George B. Neeck who has been active in labor circles. In the only other local contest in the city of Winona, Peter Mer- chlewitz, transfer firm, owner, and John J. Koscielski, garageman, topped the ticket in the five-cor- nered race for county commission- er from the first district. T. J. Pellowski, present commissioner, did not seek re-election. In rural Winona County, George P. Daley, present representative in the legislature, and Donald Mc- Leod won the nomination. In the fifth commissioner district Arnold Zenke, present commissioner, and William A. Witt were the top two candidates. Senator Edward J. Thye, polling nearly votes in the county, led the Republican ticket, which drew double the number of votes cast for Democrat-Farmer Labor candidates. Orville L. Freeman defeated Ed Ryan for L.e DFL governor candidacy. Governor C. Elmer Andersen polled more votes than Stafford King in Wi- nona County. In the city of Winona vot- ers cast ballots, slightly more than 50 per cent of the registered voters.

Fifth Air Force pilots helped soften Chinese defenses before the fight up the slopes of Capitol Hill. The Air Force said 70 individual flights were made over the hill by fighter bombers, raking the Chinese with machine gun fire, bombs and flaming jellied gaso- line. U. N. artillery then took over and pounded the hill crest and Red approach routes with a murderous barrage. South Korean infantrymen at- tacked at p.m. The going was tough. Despite the air attacks and the thunderous U. N. artillery bar- rage, the Reds sent shells scream- ing against the advancing Koreans, Sturdy Korean riflemen inched their way up the rocky slope and in a final charge with bayonets cleaned out-the last of the Chinese on the crest at p.m. The Chinese regrouped for a counterattack but artillery chopped up three companies as they massed for an assault. Another company that charged was beaten back. The Eishth Army estimated the Reds suffered casualties yes- terday. An estimated Reds were listed as casualties by the Eighth Army in earlier fighting for the hill.

Norman Peterson 838 (Continued on Paga 17, Column 3.) SCHULTZ MILWAUKEE Sen, Joseph R. McCarthy was the land- slide winner today of Wisconsin's GOP senatorial nomination. He called his victory an endorsement by the people of "my campaign to rid the government of subversive forces that would destroy it." He promised his "all-out sup- port" to Republican presidential nominee Dwight D. Eisenhower and pledged to the voters he would continue his Communists-in-gov- i ernment charges, which some peo- ple regard as the act of a patriot and others see as smear tactics. But there was no truce between McCarthy and Len Schmitt the man he defeated in yesterday's primary election for the senatorial nomination. Schmitt charged McCarthy had won through "an amazing and fraudulent hoax" perpetrated on the voters, and he added: "The result of this election is an appalling thing. When the full truth dawns, many people will recall their support of Joseph R. McCarthy in this election with shame." The 42-year-old senator, seeking his second term, brushed this at- tack aside by saying: "The people of Wisconsin have spoken for me. They have given I full endorsement to my campaign j to rid the government of subver- i sive forces that would destroy it." i With precincts out of 'reported, the count was: McCarthy Schmitt Four other GOP senatorial can- didates ran far behind, McCarthy's victory will pit him in the November election against either Thomas Fairchild of Verona 1 or Henry Reuss of Milwaukee, j the candidates for the Democratic I senatorial nomination. I Fairchild held a substantial lead over Reuss early today, but re- turns from Milwaukee County were chipping away at the margin and the outcome was uncertain. McCarthy's spectacular victory indicated that perhaps he had some support from switch-voting Democrats who crossed the line to give him help. Cross-voting is legal in Wisconsin, where voters are not required to be registered by party affiliation. But this was only speculation and there was no way to check it. The pre-election guess had been that any such cross-voting would 'help Schmitt and this was one of the concerns in the McCar- thy camp. However, the senator outstripped both Democratic candi- dates and his five Republican ri- vals by more than votes. Only a third of the state's pre- cincts had been reported when Schmitt threw in the towel at p.m. with this bitter state- ment: result of this election is an (Continued on Page 17, Column 3.) MCCARTHY Pine City Farmer Faces Murder Rap PINE CITY, Minn. Robert Billington, 40, a bachelor farmer here, goes to trial Monday on a second degree murder charge re- sulting from the slaying of a neigh- bor over the shooting of a dog. Billington was indicted by the first Pine County grand jury to be called in the .past 20 years.. He was accused in the death of Wil- liam B. Hoffman, 36. He has been in jail at Stillwater ever since his arrest en May 7. Sheriff Hannes Rypkema said Billington claimed a dog owned by Hoffman's family had become so bothersome he shot the animal when it chased his cattle, Hoffman went to Billington's house, an argument ensued and the dairy farmer shot Hoffman, according to the statement the sheriff said Billington made. Adlai States Action Policy In Asia Area By RELMAN MORIN SAN FRANCISCO Gov. Adlai Stevenson stood solidly today on the foreign policy of the Truman and, with a warning of peril, outlined a program for action in Asia. "America is threatened as never he said. The way to avert it, he told a I nation-wide television and radio au- 1 dience from San Francisco, is to give material aid to the new na- j tions of Asia, to recognize their j desire for independence, and to j show them that the United States j is not pursuing a policy of dom- 1 ination. Speaking with unusual serious- j ness, the Democratic candidate for i the presidency made these points last night: War Not Inevitable 1. "I do not think war is an inevitable part of this contest be- tween freedom and tyranny." 2. "With 85 per cent of pur bud- get allocated to defense, it is the Soviet Union which now fixes the level of our defense expenditures and thus our tax rates." 3. Republican nominee Dwight D. Eisenhower's "10-point program does not contribute much to our foreign policy discussion." 4. "I believe we may in time look back at Korea as a major turning point in a turn- ing point which led not to an- j other war, but to the first historic demonstration that an effective system of collective security is possible." j 5. "I want to assure our friends in Asia that America will never j seek to dominate their political and economic development." This was Stevenson's most im- portant effort on foreign policy. It was a peak point as well in the whole campaign he is waging through the West. Nearly seated on two floors of Veterans Memorial Auditorium heard the address. (Continued on Page 17, Column 4.)

Joseph McCarthy at Appleton, Wis., after he heard Leonard Schmitt, his opponent in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, concede the election.

Police estimated that at least half million Hoosiers turned out to welcome the Republican presiden- tial nominee Tuesday and last night in Indianapolis. That was his last stop before flying to Washington today for a brief chat with the GOP National Committee staff. He will continue on by plane to New York this afternoon. Indiana, like Ohio, gave its sup- port to Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio for the presidential nomina- tion at the Republican National Convention at Chicago last July. But in both states, Eisenhower won pledges of all-out support from party leaders, with the exception of Taft himself. And in Indianapo- lis, the heavy public outpouring gave the general hope of grass roots strength. Taft, who was in Washington during Eisenhower's Midwest trip, is slated to meet the general soon to determine how much of a part he will play in the campaign. Police estimated that per- sons welcomed Eisenhower as he drove into Indianapolis in the after- noon. As the general drove from his hotel to the Butler University field house to make an address last night, crowds were lined in the darkness on both sides of the street along almost every foot of the five-mile route, Estimate Police estimated this outpouring at field house itself was packed to the rafters with ab'out persons and another or 12.000 were seated in a football stadium nearby to listen to the speech over an amplifying system. In the speech, broadcast nation- wide, Eisenhower delivered anoth- er of his increasingly frequent gibes at his Democratic opponent for the presidency, Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson of Illinois. Hitting the Democratic adminis- tration of President Truman as one that "fumbles and stumbles and falls flat on its face every couple of Eisenhower said: "Why, my distinguished oppo- nent is using every trick in the book to get himself off the hook of the present administration's rec- ord." "When the hand-picked heir wants no part of the heirlooms, why should The Allied wartime field com- mander was interrupted 45 times by applause. Eisenhower said he went into politics because "No American can stand to-one side while his country becomes the prey of fear-mongers, quack doctors and bare faced looters." He drew a laugh when he said a heavy registration to vote would mean an election day turn-out that would "dwarf every cept the Democratic national debt." In his quest for Midwest support, Eisenhower: In Cleveland complimented Ohio- ans on their loyalty to Sen. Taft and expressed hope of meeting him soon. In Indianapolis, flatly endorsed the re-election bid of William E. Jenner of Indiana, who bitterly criticized Eisenhower's wartime and comrade, Gen. George C. Marshall. 'Living Lie' Jenner a year ago termed Mar- shall "a living lie" and a "front man for traitors" as a result of China's turning Communist after Marshall- served as an emissary there. Eisenhower since described Marshall as a "perfect example of patriotism." Jenner also has criticized, and Eisenhower has upheld, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the United Nations, and American en- try into the Korean War. In backing Jenner despite their differences, Eisenhower told his Butler University and radio au- dience that political victory de- pended upon a "united party." Eleanor Holm arrived in court in New York today with her attorney, Louis Nizer, to bring suit against Billy Rose. Rose was also suing, but dropped his charges and Miss Holm went on to win a separation dewee. (A?
