Pentagon Official Says Allied Position in Korea Is 'Grave' Students to Give By ELTON C. FAT A* MUJUry Affair, Etporfer WASHINGTON, Dec. «. <AP) _ The situation of United Nations Pound forcea In Korea U looked upon u "very gr»vt" by a high '•Pentagon official who sees scant «»Vipe that diplomatic negotiations \*n change warring Red China's mind. But neither this official who cannot b* named nor otheu In the Pentagon appeared today to have anything resembling a sure-lire Plan for stemming with Allied arms alone the tidal wave of a 1,000,000- man Chinese Communist army. This didn't mean the attempt wouldn't be made bfeore the United States and its Allies might be compelled to use the last desperate and dismal device of evacuoling all their fighting men from the KoiWn peninsula and leaving It to triumphant Communists. Indeed, a statement by Gen. Omar Bradley, head ol the-joint chiefs of staf/. left a suggestion that while at least one evacuation move In northeast Korea was imminent the Iroops there might be shifted to help hold elsewhere on the peninsula. Bradley Issues Statement Bradley Issued a formal statement last ' night after a senator hacj quoted him as telling a congressional committee withdrawals of UN «>ops In recent days have put them a position so that they could be scuatcd from Korea if necessary After seeing the published report Bradley Issued his own version. He said: "One report seems to indicate that I stated that a 'Dtinkcrque' pan is set. and that the withdrawals by United Nations troops have now made it nossiWe to evacuate them if the defense line cannot be held, "This applied only to. the hard- pressed troops In the extreme northeast sector which are now moving back to a concentration In a beachhead. "Any reports other than this arc misleading and merely speculation." Practice Is Common It is common military practice to pu! troops out from an Impossible tactical position and land them elsewhere In the battle zone. It has happened on several occasions In small scale, during the Korean War. Despite Bradley's statement, none of It contained any direct denial that plans existed which could be used to snatch out allied forces If Red China armies rolled over all Korea. Evacuation of 200.000 men would be a complex operation which could become highly dangerous If Red China decided to throw in air and eea units to harass the operation While Communist China's surface navy Is .negligible, she Is known to have at least a few submarines Thg greatest menace, however mignt come from her air force.i She ^fjht use it to strike at evacuation \Schheads as rfell HS troop transports in the narrow seas between Korea and Japan.
