WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20, 1951 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS II GREEK SOLDIERS WOUNDED BY U.S. TANK GUNFIRE Potroh Cross Pofhstin Korea; Longuogo Borrier it Handicop. •y AtMtlalcri ^r «ft WITH THE GREEK BATTALION IN KOREA. June 20 — There were two stretchers. In one, a Greek infantryman lay critically wounded. "There's where the language •barrier hurts," said Lt. Edwin Watklns of Burlington, Mich., forward artillery observer with the Greek Battalion. The two Greeks had been hit today by fire from an American tank. "The Greeks were out on patrol and the tanks were out on patrol and they just crossed paths," Watkins said. "If we had known there was a tank patrol out there wc would ^have been on the radio channel with them and this wouldn't have happened." The Greeks said the tanks fiiat •hot at them were American Shermans. A third Greek was hit in the le^. Still able to walk, he was not considered wounded. ]l«turna To Foxhole "That kid will be back in his foxhole in a minute," said Wat- ^ktnt. "In an American unit he •would have been sent to the hospital." A Greek medic was bandasing one of the wounded men, who was unconscious. "I don't know whether he will live or not," Watkins said. This Greek forward observation post is atop a hill overlooking Chinese territory. The Greeks would have to carry him half a mile by stretcher to a bump mountain trail. From there it was two 3 miles by jeep to a medical aid station. The patrol already had carried its two casualties four miles over mountainous terrain. "The Greeks will be bitter for • while," Watkins said. "Not bitter at Americans but bit ter at the tanks. They won't have anything to do with tanks for a few days." . . FOR JET SUPREMACV '-A new G.E. turbojet engine, developed by General Electric and being tested at the Lockland, Ohio, plant, is far more powerful than its battle-tested predecessors of the same size. Described as "an Important step in the world race for jet supremacy," the new J-47 engine will be the power plant for such fighting planes as the North American F-86 "Sabre" jet and the six-jet Boeing B-47 "Stratojct" bomber. Total power of the new engine is a secret, but It puts out far more thrust than the current J-47, rated in excess of 5200 ponrfl.«;. Prepare Form For Families of i War Prisoners By Atia«Ut«4 Praia WASHINGTON, June 20.—The governiiient has prepared a form for use by families trying to communicate with relatives who are prisoners of war in Korea or communist China. Announcing this yesterday, the Defense Department emphasized that so far the Reds have not supplied prisoner information through the International Red Cross. The form to be used was prepared by the Postoffice Department. It requires the name, rank and serial number of the supposed prisoner. Letters must be addressed "Care of the Chinese People's Committee for World Peace, Peking, China." No postage is required, but the words "Prisoner of War Mail" must be written in the upper right corner of tht envelope. Tke return address should be in the upper left corner. Through June 8, 153 Americans were listed as prisoners and another 10,211 as missing. MINOR RUBBISH FIRE Mt. Vernon firemen were called at 1:50 p. m. yesterday to the Mt. Vernon Iron Company to extinguish a rubbish blaze. Firemen reported there was no damage.
