Fight Rages Once More on Bunker Hill SEOUL, Korea, (m— United Nations infantrymen threw back their furious Chinese Communist assaults on Bunker Hill on the Korea Western front Monday nighl and early Tuesday. A U. S. Eighth Army officer estimated a third' of the 800-men Red force was killed or wounded. The fighting raged nearly eight hours.. At some points troops close to hand-to-hand combat on the muddy slopes soaked by six inches of rain in the past 48 hours. U. N. tanks and artillery kept up a steady barrage throughout the night in reply to Red artillery. U. S. B-29 bombers again raided supply and communication centers near the hard- hit North Korean capital of Pyongyang. It was a continuation of the U. N. plan to hit the Reds where it hurts worst —their supply dumps. The U. S. Eighth Army disclosed that U. N. guards wounded 38 prisoners of war Aug. 11 in putting down three demonstrations among "known Communist troublemakers" in a POW pen on Koje Island off South Korea. In Tokyo, Gen. Mark W.

Nationwide Threat Of Elevator Strike KANSAS CITY «l — A union official said Monday that a nationwide walkout of elevator workers may occur as a result of difficulties over a contract with operators of 15 Kansas City terminal elevators. The 300 men who- stayed off the job here Monday returned to work Tuesday while awaiting the outcome of the regional Wage Stabilization Board's action on the local contract. Sam Ming, Minneapolis, President of the American Federation ol Grain Millers (AFL), said a national "protest holiday" might be taken by its members if the board's action is unfavorable to the union. The regional board, which approved the 15-cent hourly wage increase in the local contract last week, was scheduled to reconsider the case Tuesday afternoon «t the request of an industry member, David W. Hill Jr: Hill said he voted last week in favor of the contract, but asked for the reconsideration after receiving calls from elevator companies in other cities. He said those companies told him the Kansas City contract was affecting negotiations with their local unions. Hill said he believed the Kansas City contract should be considered by the national WSB "because It is more than a regional issue." Local 16 negotiated the contract with elevator operators here June 30 after a brief strike threatened to tie up the industry just as the record Kansas wheat crop started flooding to market.
