THURSDAY, NOVEMBER SO, Divided Command In Northern Korea Draws Critics' Fire (ARK.) COURIER KEWS By DOS' WHITKHKAO WITH US. EIGHTH ARMY. Korea, Nov. 30. (AP)—Collapse of the United Natolns offensive has drawn sharp criticism here of the divided command hi General MacArthur's military forces in Korea. **Wany military men are question's the setup in which the U.S. Tenth Corps U operating in north-| east Korea entirely independently of the Eighth Army on the northwest front. The Tenth Corps, conimniulcd by MaJ. Gen. Rdward M. Almond, frequently is referred to in this theater as a "special police force," In effect, MacArthur has two forces lighting in Korea—one lab- elled ax an army and the other as a corps. ,Tb? coordination of forces is not handled (n the field hut the GHQ in Tokyo. Thus sharp separation of command responsibilities in the field has been one of the puzzles of the Korean War. No one yet ha.i given an official explanation of why Tenth Corps is divorced from Eighth Army. Swlnton Sees Reason Associated Press Corre,sj>ondenl Stan swinton, who has covered Tenth Corps since Almond's men went ashore in the northeast, pointed out today there was a physical reason for the separation o/ commands. He said the north-central mountain jnass splits North Korea in hnlf so Eighth Army and Tenth Corps could not operate as a single unit. Swinfon said many officers at Tenth Corps privately believe there should be closer liaison between Army and Tenth Corps but'a pop- dR.T opinion there Is that Tenth CTprps — actually operating ns an army and not as a corps—should be given army status and an overall army group command set up at a central point in Korea. LI. Gen. Walton H. Walker commands the Eighth Army. But actually he is responsible for only haH the fighting front despite his three stars. The other half of the responsibility rests on the two-star command of Almond. No Officer Will Talk No office]' dares talk for publication but privately they have begun to question the wisdom of thi. cleavage in field command. This L where the spot decision must be •• made in fighting the enemy, , Right now Eighth Army 'is fight iiV for its life against hordes o well trained Chinese Red troops But Walker has no power to shif any positions from the east to bols ter his western front. lie canno order Tenth Corps troops to bols ler his battered line. This would have to be a GHQ decision. Actually, officers say. there 1 only makeshift direct liaison be ^.-een tbe Eighth Army and the T"enth Corp.'; and between the U,S Fifth Air Force anrf the Tenth Corpfi. Both the Eighth Army and the Tenth Corps operate almost a- though they were in differen worlds and fighting two separate wars.

'Letter' Predicts End of World PENANG— (/Pi—Is the end of the world near? That seems to be a main topic of conversation among villagers in outlying districts of Penang and Province Welleslcy these days. Those doing the talking say that the sun will 'soon disappear for three days and nights arid after that it will be seen rising in the west. This, say rumor-mongers, (s a sign that the world's end is near. All of this kind of talk originated from a letter reportedly discovered in far- off Mecca, and sent here.
