By Associated Press ON THE KOREAN FRONT, July 5.—Exactly a year ago today, a tiny band of ill-equipped and vastly outnumbered GIs fired the first American shots—and lost the first American battle—in Korea. Le.«s than half of the Americans engaged managed to withdraw from that first battle near Osan. It pitted badly outnumbered and poorly equipped GIs against North Korean Reds led by Russian tanks. All of the U. S. artillery guns were lost. But the GIs made a new stand to the south. Today. 44 of the slightly more than 400 infantry and artillerymen of the U. S. 24th Division who went into that action are still slugging it out with the Communists. These men have weathered the dark days of the Pusan perimeter. . . . The "home hy Christmas" enthusiasm of the November drive to the Yalu ... the chilly, crushing retreat in the face of the charging Chinese, and the steady drive back north of the 3Sth parallel. ' Today, there are hints that a cease fire soon may be negotiated. But the veteran battlers of the Arrowhead division are not excited. "This war has been 'almost over' too many times," explained one. "We will believe it when we see it." In a year of battle the 24th Division has developed into a tough, talented crew that has gained the For A Happier Tomorrow ...

TAX* Ffttf FIRST For Completing Jingle In BIG 10-2-4 CONTEST Levee Breaks at St. Charles, Mo. By Ai »ocl «t«d Pi -t »j ST. CHARLES, Mo.. July 5. — The rampaging Missouri river broke through a railroad embankment levee north of here today and sent its muddy flood waters pouring over 15,000 more acres of rich bottomland. More than 100 workmen had patrolled the Missouri-Kansas-Texas levee through the night, alert for any water boring and opening. Just when victory appeared to be in sight the break through came. ' Sheriff Lester Plackmeyer said the levee failed about 6 a. m. when he got there he said the break was about 10 feet wide but 40 minutes later it had widened to 100 feet and flood waters surged through Ho estimated that about 15,000 acres would be flooded. About 24,000 acres in St. Charles county already was under water. The river stood at 36.3 feet at St. Charles this morning. This was a rise of three-tenths of a foot since yesterday. The weather bureau at St. Louis thought the river had just about reached its crest here. Upstream at Hermann in Gasconade county the Missouri had started falling slowly and farther up at Boonville it had dropped nearlv a foot from its crest of 29.4 f «t there. Heart Stops 12 Minutes But She Survives By Associated Press BOSTON, July 5 — Mrs. Helen Keith's heart stopped for 12 minutes on an operating table but she is alive today. An account of the San Francisco woman's experience — how a surgeon maintained heart action and kept her alive by massaging the heart — was published today by Peter Bent Brigham Hospital. The report, by Dr. N. A. Wilhelm, director of the hospital, did not identify the surgeon. Few people have been revived when the heart has been stopped as long as Mrs. Keith's, the hospital said. "Not only had her heart stopped," Dr. Wilhelm's report said, "but it had gone into what is called "ventricular fibrillation,' a final dying form of quivering commonly considered fatal. The period of arrest was eight minutes and the fibrillation four minutes." Yet the 37-year-old California woman, mother of two children, was strong enough to leave the hospital 12 days after the operation and make the long trip across the continent. Mrs. Keith, suffering from Rheumatic hart disease, was operated May 26 to correct a severe Coon-On-A-Log Contests Held Over Protests By Associated Press • FULTON. Mass., July 5.—A sad- faced hound named Rowdy look only 30 seconds to win the July Fourth Coon-on-a-log contest that several humane societies tried to stop. The protests didn't faze the dogs, which kept the six coons in the water much of the afternoon. None of the coons was hurl. Sheriff J. 11. Gilliland of Itawamba county said it was just as well that none of the humane societies sent delegations in pro- obstruction of the mitral valve. This guards the opening between the loft auricle and left ventricle and prevents return of the blood to the auricle. The heart pumps its blood to the extremeties from the left auricle. "One of the most remarkable feaures of this prolonged experience of cardiac arrest," the hospital's account said, "was that Mrs. Keith was able (o tajk, answer questions and move her arms and legs within half an hour of the . time her heart action was restored." |'.est. "We would have run tbem out of town if they had," he added. Among the organizations protesting the event as brutal were the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Memphis, Tenn., Humane Society. ^ Gilliland (old newsmen thai: "more people are killed in boxing and wrestling matches in New York and Memphis than coons are killed in these contests." About 4,500—several thousand from outside this town of 1,300— turned out for the contest. Rowdy's owner, A. J. McNutt. of Blue Springs, Miss., won $75 first prize. The contest designed to lest coon hounds for stamina and termination, works like this: A coon is put on a log about 60 feet offshore in Sportsmen's Lake. There is a handler for the coon and one for the dog to make sure the coon is unhurt. 3ach dog gets Ihree minutes to disloge the coon. The dog taking the least time wins.
