Battered Reds retreated northward in some sections. Some hills were completely abandoned after days of bitter fighting. Elsewhere s only diehard rear guards delayed U. N. forces.

However, there are believed to be enough^Chl- nese trty'nj i" -vestern'Korea to launch a stable R'.tack there. If the Chinese attack in the west, the Korean Reds could be expected to attempt at least a limited offensive in the east to keep the Allies from cutting behind the Chinese. 1. The air over northwest Korea flamed with three jet battles involving 220 planes. It was tne greatest number of jets ever reported in action on one day. The Fifth Air force reported one Jet shot down.' two damaged. It said all Allied jets returned from the first two battles, but didn't say how they fared in the third. Allies I^ish Forward 2.
