It's an easy road to cut. There never has been any substantial "U.N. force west of it. A month ago tlie Chinese came In once and temporarily Isolated two battalions. Now the Chinese are hittinp forward on this sector In tremendous force. They arc advancing by sheer weight of numbers—despite n gni- lant fiRbt by the Marines and Seventh Division. Ovrr on the Western front Ihr Eighth Army has retreated and badly needs reinforcements. TL would .make strategic sense In pull lh*! I0th Corps out by soa nnd move It in behind the Eighth Army on a southern line. You could move the two ROK divisions out by sea from I won r>r Chongjin. The U.S. Third Division could embark from Wonsan. But the Marines nnd Seventh Division must got down that long lonely road to Hungnnm or be evacuated by air. There's only one make-shift airstrip. Perhaps two divisions could be airlifted from Jt but the odds are against it. That means unle&s the situation changes the Marines and Seventh Division mhst claw their way down tbe gorge road, ^t cannot help but be a bloody, vicious battle If such a withdrawal is necessary. And othor Tenth Corps forces must .stay in northeast Korea until that evacuation is possible—or until the situation is restored. So far there is no sign it will be restored in ! he cast. '. The necessity of backing up the Marines finrt Seventh Division probably explains why General MacAr- lh\ir left five divisions in northeast Koren when the western front crumbled. It is a grim situation. And It poses R basic question: tlie official reason for sonriinK 10th Corps troops Into northeast Korea was that their prescncr. wpuld dissuade the Chinese from moving In.
