WEDNESDAY FEB. 4,' 1953 Army's Coldbar F'ghting Suit Passes 1st Test New Anti-Winter Clothing Is Used In Sub-Zero Cold By JIM HECKKK . CENTRAL FRONT, Korea U1— The U. S. Army's new Coldbar suit has received its first lest in combat and a palrol loader who wore It i»ave il hearty endorsement. "It's amazing." said LI. willia B. Aaron Jr. of Lyon, Miss. "These new suits kept me nnd my men warm in spite of zero weather." Plans call-for (ho brown-colored plastic suit, named from a contraction of "cold barrier," to be Issued to 3,000 Infantrymen of the 32nd Infantry Regiment for mass testa. Aaron and bis palrol engaged a Communist patro] the night of Jan. 16. Tests under combat conditions were continued for several days. The'suit is worn next to the skin without undergarments of any kind. It Is covered by regulation cotton twill flcid trovisers and Jackets to prevent snagging the spongelilce material. If the suit is snagged it can be quickly'patched with special lape Issued wllh each garment. The plastic suit creates a vapor layer next to the skin which keeps body warmth in and outside cold out—like the vapor barrier bool first used last year. The Coldbar suit welglis ab'oul four to five pounds—eliminating eight pounds of ordinary™ winter combat gear. The man wearing the new suit is in a perpetual "steam" of his own perspiration, but Aaron said the slight discomfort was more than made-up by its warmth. As Low as 50 Bllow An Army team beaded by MaJ John W. Irving is supervising the Coldbar test. Irving says the suil will keep a man warm in tempera- lures as low as 50 degrees below Bero. Due to its muHicellular design, the Coldbar gives a buoyancy thai will keep a man afloat even when weighted down with weapons. The small amount of water that seeps into the suit through ankles and wrist holes reaches body temperature in less than » minute. The new and highly successful Mickey Mouse boois have been issued to front-Una soldiers. They seal out the cold and prevent frostbite. Meanwhile, gasoline for heating bunkers and tents have been pul on a quota basis to cut down black m?rket operations in fuel. Eighth Army supply officers said fo'.ir men living in a bunker get Klishtly more than five gallons of gp.?ojine a day for their stove. "No man will go cold," an officer said. "We haven't had anj complaints yet." As for the reported shortage ot ammunition, supply officers claim artillery and mortar shells are issued to imits under a quota system, but they ars Jn plentiful supply. An Eighth Army officer explained, "We hav« found the troops .here are shooting slightly more ammunition than they did in similar situations In World War n. So recently we increased the shell allotment." A front-line visit appears to ron firm that there is no real shortage of anything for U. S. troops In Korea. As one Infantryman put it: "We get enough of every th'ing- except sleep and rotation points."
