THURSDAY, JULY IS, 1950 BLYTHEVFLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Solons Ask Use Of Atomic Bomb; National Guard ongress Indicates Regard for Growing Seriousness of War WASHINGTON. July 13, UP) — Congressional demands for threatening the Korean Communists with the A-bomb and calling up the National Guard served today as index to the growing seriousness with which lawmakers nre treating the world situation. Members of the House npplauded yesterday when Rep. Bentsen (D- Tex) said that Mr. Truman should give the Coinmnnist.s one week to get out of Southern Korea. If they refuse, he said, the President should then supply their commander with a "named list of principal North Korean cities which would he subjected to atomfc attacks by our air forces." Call Up Cuarri? Another Texas Democrat, Senator Lyndon Johnson, raised the proposal of calling National Guard and reserve forces immediately, ire followed it up by telling a reporter: "We ate going to be forced to do this anyway in time and the sooner |.the better. ^|Sk.less we move quickly there is a cmtnce that our boys will be pushed clear nut of Korea." Senator Brewster (R-iMe> proposed that it be left up to General MacArthur whether to use atomic bombs on the Communists. He offered this idea of his own: Bombs for Lives "The Communists should understand that we are not spending billions for bombs out of scientific curiosity. Presumably they are designed to save the lives of American boys," Tracy S. Voorhees, former under secretary cf the Army, told a House committee that an atomic attack on the United States itself is now "more than a possibility." He sairi that if an attack does come, it wil doubtless be a big one aimed at Industrial centers.

An advanced headquarters spokesman said several bridges across the winding Kum River. 13 miles ! north of Tnejon, were blown up I last night. One was u large railway ! bridge. General MacArthur announced; the appointment midnight of Gen. Walker, chief ot the Eighth Army in Japan, as commander of ground forces in Korea. The Eighth Army lias .set up an advanced command post in Korea and taken over the jou or U. S. Army Forces in Korea (USAFIK). The latter command was abolished. Walker commanded the famed armored "ghost corps" of General George Pattern's Third Army in Europe. He was cited by Britain and praised by the U. S. War Department (now the Department of the Army) for his coordination of infantry and armored groups. Walker made a flying visit to the Korean fighting front Saturday. One squadron of the B-29s carried more than three times the we .. of explosives carried by the famous B-24s of World War II. Jettison Bomber The planes carried men like Staff Sgt. William T. Ayres ,a tall gim- ncr of Jonesboro. Ark., and Oraville, Wash. He was shot down In Europe and imprisoned by the Germans In World War II.

Continued from Page I their plants In materials lo keep full operation. With the arrival of increasingly Kslmlstic reports from the Korean front, there has been growing sentiment for much more drastic measures. However, the advocates of a quick plunge Into homc-Ircmt mobilization apparently are less numerous than who feel Unit action should be delayed until the needs of the armed forces become more clear. U Is understood that the Defense Department has not yet .supplied a fully rounded estimate of Ms probable needs.
