Gen.Hobart R. Gay is commander of the U. S. First Cavalry Division, one of the four infantry divisions in the Far East command of Gen. Douglas MacArthur which have been reported alerted following White House announcement authorizing use of American ground forces in Korea.
The Far East command numbers 123,500 men. Tokyo, July 1 (Saturday) (UP) Reports from Taejon indicated today that U. S. ground troops were landing in South Korea to counter a Communist break-through which drove American field headquarters back from Suwon to Taejon, 93 miles south of Seoul. Word that Americas) soldiers were landing in South Korea had been awaited here for hours following President Truman's an- nouncement in Washington that WOULD FIGHT SOVIETS! Taejon, Korea, July 1 (Saturday) (AP) Brig, Gen.
John Church, commanding American advanced field headquarters, in South Korea, said today that U. S. troops would fight the Russians If they participated with the North Koreans. "If the Rut-skies come down, we'll fight the' Russkies," General Church said. MacArthur's Advice Taken, Is Presumption Coast Will Be Blockaded.
Washington, June SO (AP) President Truman today sent American ground troops Into the battle of Red-Invaded South Korea and ordered a tight Naval blockade of the entire Korean coastline. He also directed United States planes to blast targets in Communist North Korea. Ths Defense Department said American troops already were on the way to help the hard-pressed South Koreans in their battle for independence. All troop movements were kept secret. President Truman announced his decision at a White House meeting attended by his Cabinet, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and ranking members of Congress shortly after news of the break-through had been received.
Presumably, he acted on the urgent recommendation of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, who made a dramatic personal Inspection of the battle (one two days ago, AIR FORCE GETS ORDER. For reasons of military secrecy, Mr. Truman did not specify how many American GIs would be sent Into action out of the men in General MacArthur's Far East command. The order said only that General MacArthur was authorized "to use certain supporting ground units." So far as is known, no Russian soldiers have yet appeared in ths fighting, although the invaders are Russian-trained and have been reported using Soviet Yak planes and Russian-made tanks.
The President's directive authorized the United States Air Force-hitherto restricted to the South Korea area to fly specific military missions into North Korea wherever necessary. In addition, Mr. Truman ordered American warships to set up a blockade around the entire Korean Peninsula, thus moving to prevent the establishment of further beachheads by sea-borne Invasion forces. ARTILLERY TO LEAD. Military experts said American artillery and'anti-tank units would probably lead the United States ground forces into action.
Both are desperately needed by the South Koreans who lack both tanks and anti-tank weapons. Supporting Infantry would be needed for both artillery and anti-tank forces. Under General MacArthur's command are four Infantry divisions the so-called First "Cavalry" Division, the Seventh, 24th and 25ih Infantry Divisions stationed in Japan, Okinawa and the Philippines. President Truman outlined the reasons for his new order to a topflight gathering of Congress members, military chiefs and diplomatic leaders. The group Included Vice President Berkley; Dean Achcson, Secretary of State; House Speaker Sam Rayburn, Democrat, Texan; Senate Majority Leader Scott M.
caa, Democrat, Illinois; Louis Johnson, Secretary of Defense, and the three secretaries of the armed services. House Approves Bill To Step Up Air Force In Compromise Vote Washington, June SO (UP) The House unanimously passed and sent to President Truman for his signature today a' compromise bill authorising a 70-group air force. The measure was drafted by a Joint House-Senate committee re-' cently after more than a year of stalemate, The Senate approved it Thursday, While the Air Force still must obtain the cash from Congress before it can start expanding its present 48 groups to 70-group strength, the new authority is a potent argument for such a request. President Truman has said re-peatedy that the nation cannot afford a 70-group air force. That was before the outbiaak Of war In however.
If the confict continues for any great time he may reconsider his earlier decision. There is no indication now, however, that he will. The compromise also established the maximum strength of the Army at 837,000 men and the Air Force at 802,000 men. It likewise authorizes the Navy and Air Force to experiment with new types of guided missiles. Taft, Wherry, Other Party Leaders Give Up Fight-Sum Is $1 Billion Plus.
Washington, June 30 (AP) In a rare display of unanimity the Senate today approved, 66 to 0, a $1,222,500,000 program to arm nations resisting Communism, including South Korea. Republicans who have assailed heatedly administration methods of defending the free world against aggression suddenly closed ranks behind the bill, Impelled by the Korean crisis. The legislation now goes to the House. It is an authorization measure which requires separate action to finance It. Although the bulk of the funds, $1 billion, would go to strengthen North Atlantic Treaty allies, Sen.
Tom Con.ially, Democrat, Texas, voiced assurance that "the bill contains plenty of funds for Korea." Senator Cnnnally, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said that the bill's $16 million earmarked for Korea and the Philippines could be Increased at any time by a shift of funds. OrEN FIGURE REJECTED. He asked the Senate to reject an amendment of Sen. Harry P. Cain, Republican, Washington, which would have left open the figure (or Korea so that it could be increased later.
The Senate rejected the amendment by voice vote. Senate leaders had not expected much opposition to the measure-perhaps a dozen votes in view of the sudden turn of world events. But one after another some of the most outspoken GOP critics of the administration fell into line. The bill represents the second year of arms aid, mostly going to Europe to discourage any aggressive ideas Russia might have. Besides $1 billion cash, the Atlantic nations would get $230 million in equipment.
The bill also carries $131,500,000 for Turkey, Greecenand Iran, and $75 million for the general area of China. There is provl aion for sale or donation of arms to other nations whose security the President considers vital to American defense. TAFT SUPPORTS IT. Sen. Robert A.
Taft of Ohio, Republican policy leader who had opposed the Truman arms aid program, told the Senate he was voting for the bill although he was against the general idea of arming foreign nations at heavy expense. He voiced belief that the program could not now be ended "without more danger than it Creates." He said that his vote too was Influenced by the Korean aid it carries. This was the reason given by Sen. James Kern, Republican. Missouri, bitter critic of administration foreign policy, for his own vote.
Sen. Kenneth Wherry of Nebraska, the Republican Floor Leader, reversed his position of last year on arms aid, and voted for the bill aylng that the war In Korea had altered the situation and "the President must have our unanimous support." MUST WIN, BYRD SAYS. Sen. Harry V. Byrd.
Democrat, Virginia, one of Mr. Truman's strongest antagonists on many domestic Issues, told the Senate that "This Is the time for unity, as we must win." He pledged the President his "full and unqualified support In measures to drive the Koreans back. Senator Byrd said he hoped that ether United Nations members would help present a united front against the agKrcssors by joining In the Korean military action. Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge Republican, Massachusetts, member of the Foreign Relations Committee, asserted that "we must raise our sights" In aiding Europe's defense.
He said the bill did not carry enough for Atlantic Pact nations. Another look at Europe's situation is urgently needed, the Massachusetts Senator counseled. Barges, Convoy Damaged, Too B-29s In Action 161 Sorties Flown. Tokyo, July 1 (Saturday) (AP) The U. S.
Far Eastern Air Force, seeking to stem the North Korean breakthrough south of Seoul, reported today it destroyed 15 Red tanks by strafing Friday and heavily bombed other Communist armor along the Han River east and west of Seoul. A communique issued early Friday by the Air Force said it flew 161 sorties over Korea, including a third raid by B-29 superfortresses. The B-29's bombed along the Han River. "Barges and troop concentrations received heavy damage as well as tanks, convoys, and road Intersections. Elements of the 5th Air Fore provided cover, and incomplete returns Indicate approximately 30 trucks destroyed, two locomotives, an undetermined rum her of boxcars believed to be at least 10 and 15 tanks were also destroyed," by strafing, said the communique.
B-26 bombers supported South Korean ground forces and strafed "targets of opportunity." U. S. PLANES SHOT DOWN. F-80 jet fighters rrlday continued strafing the Kimpo Airport, which South Koreans earlier claimed they had recaptured. The big airport, 16 miles west of Seoul, already had been damaged heavily by B-29's the day before, the communique said.
Three American planes were shot down and four destroyed on the ground, a North Korean broadcast from Pyongyang claimed. The report, not confirmed elsewhere, was relayed by the Peiplng Red radio in a broadcast heard here. The Pyongyang report said one plane was shot down out of six penetrated north of the 38th the Imaginary tine that "i ipllts Korea In half. (An earlier Pyongyang broadcast claimed 27 American bombers had hit the northern capital today, but listed no damage.) Another was shot down over Suwon, 20 miles south of Seoul, and four were wrecked there on the ground, the radio claimed. It added that one "P-38 type plane'' was brought down by ground fire over Kaesong, just south of the 38th Parallel.
WHOSE AIR FORCE? Late Friday night Clarence Ryee, South Korean Information Minister, said "our Air Force" had struck at Red air bases in North Korea, including Pyongyang. Ryee, who telepho ed the information from Taejon, the Southern Republic's provisional capital, did not explain what he meant by "our Air Force." The Southerners have only 10 F-51 fighters, given them by the United States after hostilities broke out nearly a week ago, plus a few light observation and training planes. Ryee's statement, however, followed Gen. Douglas MacArtr.ur's decision to strike North Korean air bases no matter-whether they are north of the 38th parallel or south of it in Red-occupied territory. "We must their planes on the ground without waiting until they get Into the air." General MacArthur decided In the course of his dramatic flight to the Korean front Thursday.
His chief of staff, Maj. Gen. E. M. Almong, said American plnnes were hitting the Reds "wherever they are," and operating against northern "facilities for Invading South Korea." President Truman approval specific air missions Into North Korea wherever necessary.
Major Almong said this did not constitute an abridgment of the 38th parallel as a war bounnary. It is a normal operation to neutralize an enemy attack at its source, he declared. The country was divided along this line, some 215 miles long, for occupational purposes after World War II. After both Russia and America withdrew their occupation forces in 1948 and 1949, it continued to divide the little country into two opposing regimes.

Washington, June 80 (AP) President Truman today signed the new draft law which leaves him unrestricted authority to order inductions resumed at any time. The law, which runs until July 9, 1951, also empowers him to put the National Guard and the reserves on active duty any time he sees fit to do so. Males from 19 to 26 are subjected to Induction. When extension of the selective service law first came before Congress last spring, there was considerable doubt that the lawmakers would grant a continuation. At the minimum, they wanted to limit the President's power to start Inductions going again.
But with the Communist invasion of South Korea the picture changed swiftly. The revised measure, putting no strings on the President's authority, clicked through with only four adverse votes In the House, and none in the Senate. No men have been inducted since January, 1949, voluntary enlistments having kept the military ranks filled. The new law, as did the old one, requires every male to register with his local draft board within five days after he becomes 18. But no one, can be Inducted until he bo-comes 19 or after he reaches 26.
Anyone between those ages can be forced to serve for not more than 21 months unless exempted. Exempted groups include ministers and students for the ministry; aliens who have not applied for citizenship; mentally, physically or morally unfit persons; state and Federal Judges, Congressmen and members of State Legislatures, and officials elected by statewide vote; conscientious objectors whose religious beliefs won't let them perform military service; sole surviving sons of families who already have lost a member in military service, and war veterans who served at least 90 days between December 7, 1941, and September 12, 1945, or at least 12 months between September 16, 1910, and June 24, 1948. Ohio Boards Prepared For Full-Scale Drafting Of Man Power For War Columbus, Ohio, June 30 (AP) Ohio's draft machinery Is ready for full-scale induction of men into the Armed Forces In case of a national emergency. Col. Carl G.
Wahl, chief of the man-power section of the Ohio Selective Service System, mado an estimate of the situation today. He said Ohio's boards are ready to begin Inductions at any time, estimating It would be in full swing within 60 days of Initial inductions. He outlined these points: Through the almost five years of peace, the system has quietly polished and refined Its plan for quick expansion should another emergency arise. CITY DRAFT BOARDS LISTED Because of many calls requesting information on draft status, the Army Recruiting Station yesterday announced the location and telephone numbers of the seven local draft boards. Draft Boards No.
49 and 50 are In Norwood City Hall and can be reached by calling RE 8621. Boards 61, 52, 53 and 61 which serve persons In the Western Hill district, are located at Knowlton's Corner, Spring Grove and Hoffner and can be contacted by calling MU 8806. Persons living in Wyoming and the surrounding areas are requested to call Board No. 55 at the Municipal Building in Wyoming. The telephone number is VA 6862.
Most veterans of World War II would be exempt from service under present laws. Exemption is provided If: The veteran has 90 days' service between December 7, 1941, and September 2, 1945; The veteran has one year's service between September 16, 1940, and June 24, 1948, or The veteran has completed three years' service after June 24, 1948. (The last provision won't affect very many veterans. The second provision would apply if ths veteran's one year was up on June 24, 1948; If he entered service the following day his three years would have ended only last Sunday. Colonel Wahl pointed out that Congress can pass new laws almost overnight but as of now, only, single nonvet-erans between the ages of 19 and 28 can be Inducted.
Married men are exempt from service under the present law. So are 18-year-olds although they must register within five days after their 18th birthdays under threat of five years' Imprisonment and $10,000 fine. No one has been Inducted by the Ohio Selective 6ervic System since January, 1949. The 37th Division (Ohio National Guard) can be called into active service as a unit at any time the President or Congress declares a national emergency. If war over the Korean situation should come, Colonel Wahl believes Ohloans would be called to service this way: (D National Guard and reservists.

Reds Imneriling Peace By "Religion Of Hate," President Tells Scouts Valley Forge, June 30 (AP)-Presldent Truman charged tonight that a "cynical group of leaders' in Communist-dominated countries was endangering peace by making "a religion of hate." Children In these countries, he said, are being mobilised and manned "under the hammer and sickle" and taught to despise religion and "believe that God does not exist." "They are being made Into tools of power politics, and their masters will not hesitate to sacrifice their lives if that will advance the cause of Communist Imperialism," the President said. Addressing ths huge National Boy Scout Jamboree, Mr. Truman assured Scouts that peoples in other lands share their "unconquerable belief in freedom" and their "willingness to make sacrifices for it." His prepared speech made no reference to stepped-up V.
S. military aid to Communist-invaded South Korea, Including ground forces. Nor did he mention Russia by name. But he gave an Implied warning to Communism everywhere that Americans were made of the same material today as those who suffered in tattered rags and bare feet with George Washington at Valley Forge. "But ths men of that Army stuck it out," he said.
"They stuck it out because they had a fierce belief in ths causa of freedom for which they were fighting, And, because of that belief, they won. "I know that we still have, In this country, the same unconquerable belief In freedom." The opon-air arena at the place where Brig. Gen. James Mitchell Varnum's Rhode Island troops dug in for ths historic winter of 1777-78 was ths scene of the PreU dent's addrns to the massed thousands of Scouts and their leaders. St "certain supporting ground units" would be sent to aid the U.
South Korean Government. A C. 8. Army spokesman here said earlier that a battalion of the 24th Infantry Division was being flown to Pusan and would be rushed to the battlefront by train. The landing was reported shortly after the U.
S. field headquarters withdrew from Suwon as Communist armored forces surged forward from Seoul. Peter Kalischer, United Press staff correspondent, reported by telephone from Taejon that Brig Gen, John H. Church. U.
S. forward commander, ordered the U. S. retreat when South Korean defenses "melted away" In the face of the Communist armed forces. TWO ADVISERS ARE HIT.
Two American military advisers were injured slightly in the fighting which prefaced the withdrawal-one hit in his shoulder by a shell fragment. In the Han River area, and one wounded in hi bead by a trm a Russian-made Yak fighter plane strafing Suwon Alr- field. Their names were not disclosed. 1 General Church said grimly that the U. S.
Army was through retreating. "We are not going any farther back," General Church said. "We are going back to the 38th Parallel (the North Korean frontier)." The evacuation order was Issued at about 9 p. m. (7 a.
m. Eastern Daylight Time) Friday. All Americans in Suwon, as well as the headquarters staff, were ordered to fall back to Taejon. Within 10 minutes after the orde was given, headquarters had been cleared and the troops on duty there had assembled at the Suwon Airfield. DECIDES TO EVACUATE.
After consulting with headquarters in Tokyo and the South Korean commander at Suwon, General Church decided to evacuate ths airfield as well as the town. General Church and his staff traveled to Taejon by road, arriving In the Korean "emergency capital" about 4 a. m. today. He went at once to confer with John Muc-cio, U.
S. Ambassador. The North Koreans broke through the Han River defense line. South Korea's main defensive front, near Soblnggo. Infantry swarmed across the river and esabllshed a beachhead under cover of a heavy artll-lery barrage.
Forty or 50 armored vehicles poured through the gap. B-29 bombers already were blasting Red positions along the Han River, scene of the break-through. CAVALRY UNIT ALERTED? There were repeated rumors that th 1st Cavalry Division had been alerted to go to Korea, but an official spokesman said the famed combat unit was not preparing for any such move, and added, "aa far as I'm concerned, It won't be for some time." U. S. and Korean officers In Suwon, Korea, said today that South Korea's fighters r.erded tanks more than any other itirgle weapon In their battle with the Communist invaders.
Perhaps significantly, the usual midnight communique from Gen. Douglas MacArthur's headquarters was not Issued today, and up to 4 m. the only word of American operations was a communique by the Air Force. U. S.
