(AP)—The government lias no power to seize, freeze, or ration any commodities, and has not even (liscimed Ihe possibility of asking voluntary curbs, a top official said today. H. R. McCoy, chief of the Of(Ice of Industry and Commerce, In the Commerce Department, made the statement when questioned about scattered rumors of Impending "freeze" orders on rubber, zinc and other materials. "There ts no Indication of such action," McCoy told a reporlcr. "The government's needs arc being supplied, 1 see no need for controls." His office would administer any such controls. This could be dont only If. first, Congres or the president should declare an emergency and, second, congress should vote the legal authority. The "war powers" of World War H have expired. New legislation gives the government certain conlroLs over atomic materials and rubber. In the case of rub- •ber, the allocation authority has been exercised only to Insure that enoiijh synthetic U used to keep the industry In shape for any future emergency. There Is no power, officials said, for the government to interfere with the disposal of tires, tubes 01 rubber hi the hands of private linns or persons. H a serious shortage of rubber should develop, they said, a probable step would be to reopen some lals-up wartime synthetic plants, rather Irian ration Industry or consumers. - six, killed, and 12 miss- Ing.

IUItl<; at Jlan Klvor U.S. and Korean strategists at the war front have drawn their main battle line along the Han River. About 25.000 troops on each side face each other along the line, which extends from a point near Seoul along the river west to the Yellow Seacoast. The Communist drive southward has not crossed the river. Tlie 75-mile battle line protects the American air beachhead In Korea and field headquarters of Gen. MacArlhur's officers. MacArthur's olficcrs said IVicy believe the South Koreans can hold It now. MacArthur, back in Tokyo after a 15-hour flying visit, lo the front, appeared heartened by the stiffening resistance he saw and the morale of tlie Koreans, who cheered him. Tile southerners apparently were recovering from Ihe initial shock of the Communist Invasion. Infantry units once cut off by the Red lank attack which cnvelomd Seoul were being regrouped swiftly to join the counter-offensive.
