MONDAY, JUNE 25, 1951 ONE YEAR AFTER ... THE PRICE OFJ<OREA By HAL ilOYLK Al» Staff Writer NEW YORK — What is the price of Korea? Has the battle there been worthwhile to the United Slates a year later? What have we gnimA? World respect — and time to arm ourselves. And today we have a mishly field Army. What have we lost? Well, ifiorc .^lan 70,000 Americans have been '^urt or killed or are missing. Along the way some of those 70,000 casualties insisted on going right back up into the fighting, and only in the last few weeks have been rotated home. The statistics of this engagement that began as a United Nations "police action" ai*e on the staggering side. We claim we killed or wounded more than a million of the enemy. They don't say. But the Ambassa- (Jor or our South Korean ally says nhe war so fai has cost the Jives of 3,000,000 of his people and made 10,000,000 homeless. All of Korea North and South, has about 30,000,000 ijeople. Misery and Confusion From a strictly humanitarian standpoint it therefore appears that wo have given more death, misery and confusion to the South Koreans than we have liberty. And we have. That is only fair to say. But we have kept the pattern mt freedom pretty clear in the United States and elsewhere. And under the United Nations flag a solid right block has been thrown Into Soviet Russia's attempt to take Asia by force. flistory may yet say that his attempt to grab all of Korea by pure muscle was on of .Joe Stalin's greatest mistakes. It is there ho abandoned promises for attempted performance. Magnificent Army In a dozen months a magnificent iiU. S. - U. N. Army has been built up able to stay in Korea as long Bs it wants to, no matter how many more trops the Chinese may want *.o waste against it. The story of ihe Korean campaign has been his: The moio they throw against js the loss we have to retreat. As ^lie enemy has massed, we have muscled. Today we hold a new "Chinese wall" of our own, a steel shell cur- lain against the iron curtain. Rus- ^sia's bid by force has been blocked •»by force. Capacity to mine coal is 30 to 40 per cent above demand in the United States. THE REGISTER-NEWS — Ml VERNON. ILLINOIS Dr. Whitaker DENTIST First National Banik Bidg. Phone 1022 Hold Long-Haired Piano Player in Holdup of Tavern •y AttMisM Prut ROCK ISLAND. 111.. June 25.— A long-haired musician was seized at his piano yesterday in connection with a $5,000 tavern holdup. Claus C. Miller, Rock Island police chief, said he and two fellow officers slipped up behind shaggy-haired Joseph De Salvo, 21, and seized him as he tinkled out a tune on a piano at the Pifth Avenue club. Dc Salvo, of 217 North Laporte Avenue, Chicago, had a .45 caliber pistol strapped beneath his armpit but made no attempt to use it. Dc Salvo signed statements at the police station, the chief said, saying that he had robbed three taverns within three months In Rock Island, the latest yesterday. The chief said $4,700 in cash was recovered from De Salvo's car parked near the tavern where he was taken. Miller said the money came from the Viaduct tavern near the Farmall works of International Harvester Company, which De Salvo said he robbed yesterday. Miller declined to reveal how he came to suspect De Salvo. The robber who held up the Viaduct escaped with $5,500 in cash and $4,000 in payroll checks. Bartender John Delp, 35, described the robber as about 25 years old, badly in need of a haircut, and wearing blue jeans, a corduroy packet and peaked cap. More cooked dry beans are canned than any of the so-called seasonal vegetables, such as peas, corn, and tomatoes. AactionMr T. B. RITSSELL Ml Vcrnm. III. SALE BARN.

Dewey will fly to the Korean warfront early next month as ' part of a 25,000 mile tour of critical areas in the Pacific. The twice-defeated Republican candidate for president announced today he would leave July 1 by plane and would be gone a month. Asked the purpose of his trip, Dewey said that "for a good many years I have felt the importance of the Pacific area and southern Asia to the free world was critical. "It is clear that our own security and that of the rest of the free world depends to a large extent on developments in the Pacific. "I think it is important to go and see it first-hand, the way conditions are developing." Dewey said that on the trip he would not be representing the United .States government "or anyone else," "I am traveling at my own expense."
