In those' 24 words, Elsenhower not only seemed to say he would take the wraps off Gen. Mark Clark's Far East Command, but also that the armistice talks could result in nothing more than wasted words »nd time. One year ago last month, when a cease-fire line was agreed upon at Panmunjom, quiet settled ovei the cold Korean front. In Ihe pasl 13 .months ihat quiet has erupted frequently In savage. If small- scale fighting. The battle line has changes very little and neither side- has elected to attack in an effort oforce a breakthrough. While Clark and Gen. James A, Van Fleet, his Korea commander, have been un der orders only to hold, the Com munist shave made the most o the opportunity to build up In depth. ever, and Clark couldn't 'expect he mass capiutlation Eisenhower got when the U. S. Ninth and First Armies closed the Ruhr Pocket on he Germans In 1945 and trapped million men. The Communists probably svould try to fight out of the trap and more Red soldiers would pour out of the Manchurlan hills. But if (he stalemate Is ever Droken that's the way it will have :o be done.

It is doubtful now If Clark has enough troops to smash through the 700,000 Communist soldiers fcaing him. Therefore Eisenhower must have a way in mind to build up the Eighth Army to a leal striignk force. < Clark has 10 American divisions, counting two in Japan, 14 South Korean divisions, two air forces and the U. S. Seventh Fleet. . .If that force were bolstered by three or four divisions from Nationalist China and perhaps many additions Hhuosands more South Korean troops still in training, Clark conceivably could take the offensive. Where would be strike? It is not revealing classified information to say that the Crtn- munists are suckers for a body punch.... The Is tMarine Division landing at Inchon caught them flat-footed. ' The Reds have massed their forces" along the front again and are wide open" for an amphibious attack anywhere along the two costs. The fact that there are two coasts makes it doubly hard for them to guess where the man who led the attack on Anzio might smack them. Clark took Anzio with power and It is doubtful if he'd try a landing n Korea unless he had the ships (Continued from Page 1) In good health, although they were kepi In the U. S. Army Hospital here for examination and rest. Pour other seamen slipped into (he sea from rope ladders and were picked up by a small Italial navy boat that bobbed nearby In the choppy water. Savage winds and waves hac piled the 3,800-ton ship onto the hnrbor reef 200 yards off shon here early yesterday and then broke her In two. The stern, with all the crew aboard, wedged fast on the rocks. The ship had been trying to tie up in Leghorn harbor wh'en a 100-mile gust caught her. In contrast to yesterday's gales and swells, clear, sunny weather, slacking winds and a moderating sea aided operations today. One of those picked up by the boat, Serge Flushing of New York City, stepped ashore with the simple words, "Thank God." Those who came ashore in the canvas rescue sling included the ship's 66-year-old Filipino steward, Roman Fernandez. Before being rushed to a Leghorn hotel, Fernandez said-the men still aboard the ship were in good spirits and ate a hearty breakfast. Later three other men slipped down the rope ladder and leaped into the rough sea. They had to swim for minutes that seemed hours, they said. They were First Engineer Salvatore Lentinello of Brooklyn.

Hampden said morale was high WSB Promises Quick Action on Wage Requests WASHINGTON '.fl — The Wage Stabilization Committee, organized o keep Ihe wage controls program [otng, has promised fnsl action on 2,000 pay increases awaiting ap proval.
