Navy Planes in Biggest Raid Hit Near Siberia By SAM SUMMERLIN SEOUL, Korea Wl — Three U.S. carriers, staging the greatest Navy air strike of the Korean War, struck within sight and sound of Soviet Siberia today in the U. N. air campaign of utter destruction for Red military installations. The attack by 164. Navy bombers and fighters from the Boxer, Essex and Princeton hit an oil refingery and an iron works in extreme Northeast "Korea. Pilots reported the Reds were so totally surprised they didn't even throw up flak. The refinery was at Aoji, 12 miles south of the Siberian border and northernmost air target of the war. The iron mine works was at Musan, across the Tumen River from Manchuria. The Navy said 70 per cent of the Musan works — including ore- concentrating and hydrogen plants — was destroyed. The synthetic oil refingery at Aoji was left burning, with smoke rising four miles. U. S.

Slaying Almost Perfect But Not Quite BALTIMORE Wl— Maryland police, who stripped the accident masquerade costume off a brutal killing, are charging a quiet New York office manager with the "perfect murder" of his Sunday school eacher wife. The plot that police said led to he. death ot 33-year-old Dorothy May Grammer involved a scheme so engineered that the woman ap peared to have died in a traffic ac cident—actually witnessed by two Baltimore city policemen. .G, Edward Grammer and the woman he is accused of beating to death seem strangely out of character in the story unfolded on a Baltimore police docket. She is described by neighbors 11' the well-ordered' Bronx' a past men* community where she lived as a "sweet, nice person," a woman "without an enemy in the world.' Grammer, who sometimes served as an usher in the Methodis church they attended, is describee a.j a "quiet man" by his neigh bors. His wife, the mother of three devoted extensive time to Camp fiye Girls and Bluebirds, neighbor said. ' Her body was found in an overturned car early the morning o Aug. 20 near Towson, Md., where the couple had been living sine the recent death of her father. Two policemen had seen the ca careening wildly down the hill, th engine roaring at full throttle. Th wheels of the car were still spin niha when they removed th woman's body. It appeared to be a routine high way tragedy, brought on by to much speed and poor control.

(Toe Duke, alone with Ljitie Jimmy Little Seventh Fleet commander, said the carrier raid "signals to the Communists that we mean business and will fight for our way of life." A Navy officer said the raid 'will just about eliminate industry in that. part of Koea and make definite dent in the Red economy". He added that the raid was a continuation of massive destruction on previously untouched Red Korean targets. The series began with big hydroelectric raids on June 23. From his post aboard the Boxer, Waters said the heavily laden Navy planes were catapulted off the deck into a bright blue sky of a brilliant dawn. The planes staggered under capacity loads of gasoline, machine-gun ammunition and 1,000 and 2,000-pound bombs. Sixty-four planes from the Boxer hit the Musan mine and 100 planes from the Essex and Princeton blasted the Aoji refinery. The Fifth Air Force reported August'the best month of the entire war against the Communist MIG. It said 32 MIGs were shot down, three probably destroyed ,and 42 damaged — against only 'one American jet lost in air fighting. Eleven U. N. planes were shot down by anti-aircraft and 13 were lost to other causes. More Migs have been shot down in previous months — 44 in April — but never before with & low Allied loss as only one plane downed in air fighting. Fighting on the soggy, steaming battlefront continued light. But yesterday was a big pay day for 40,000 combat soldiers.

Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Ru sell S. Fisher pointed out that dea bodies do not bruise. And, he sal there was nothing in the car thi could have caused the deep cut and gashes on her forehead. Ther weren't even any broken windows. Besides, a pebble had been forced under the accelerator to keop it down. ' His verdict — murder. State's Atty.
