THURSDAY, JULY 27, 1950 BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEW* British Troops to Arrive During U.S. Darkest Hour By ELTON C. FAY AooeUtrd Press Military Reporter WASHINGTON, JuJy 27, (AP) — AjBjbuncement that Britain ' is wading, and other United Nations countriet may »end, ground troops to Kore* comes In one of the durk- est hours of American military history, What American military men want now are more combat-ready troops — quickly, urgently. How quickly? There are no firm estimates now, but the next two or three weeks can be highly-critical. United States Army troops lighting the Red Invades of the republic of Korea do not yet have their backs to the wall—but the room is getting alarmingly smaller. In the strategy of trading space for time, they are running low on both commodities. Army Combal Group The British government's announcement that it is sending to Korea a regular army combat group including artillery and armor, reached Washington at a time when Pentagon officials were growing increasingly concerned about from United Nations members. Reinforcements from the united States ire on the way—2nd Army Division troops, First Marine Division fighters—but some pentagon make it plain this can't be tained until the build-up for a counter-offensive Is ready. They maintain that view publicly and privately. They say that during the next few weeks the reinforcements from the United States, plus more and better arms and ammunition, should be able to get into action. That is the critical time. If they can't, or if the Red Forces get more power from hidden resources of manpower, then the situation will be more than critical. Coe to Demand Recount of Vote Candidate Claims Oklahoma Nomination Was 'Stolen Deal' More lighting manpower Ls needed not only to bolster the battered Army troops and help them hold the diminishing perimeter, "but to allo wsoldiers exhausted by weeks ol unrelieved combat to rest. lOM Men Units Pentagon leaders prefer that any troop units contributed to the United Nations campaign in Korea be in organiations of not less than 1,000 men, trained, equipped and supplied for initial fighter. Later, the Far East command of the United States can provide the supplies, bub it Is desired that when ground forces land in the war one they be r&arfy to go into action quickly with their own equipment and field supplies. . • The London announcement did not specify the size of the combat group to be sent, but' it apparently would be substantially more than the 1,000-man minimum. London news dispatches speculated that it might range from a batalion to a brigade, from 1,000 to 5,000 men. There was other help in the offing, including the announcements of two British commonwealth countries, Australia and New Zealand, that they will send land forces. Turkey already has offered 4.500 trains' combat troops, y Combat-Wise Units •It is the- combat-wise veteran units that could be of special value in Korea if they could be landed there soon. The Pentagon looked sadly on the departure from the eastern hemisphere of Holland's colonial army. Units of the Royal Netherlands, Indies Army were getting ready yesterday to pull out of Indonesia,-headed for home. These soldiers have fought for years, are - highly skilled at in- lighting through rugged, mountainous terrain like Korea. But Lt.-Gen Burman Van Vreden, 'commander of the Dutch forces in Indonesia said diversion of his troops to Korea was "out of the question." His soldiers' want to go home alter years of service abroad, he explained. ..-.."'•" Pentagon officials still Insist tha * ioothold in Korea will be PAGE NINE th* Bike, Babcrt II, ud WtUtktek, Ukt, hn*h*d b*ek to apolofiied ud uld!

Coe charges Hint thi Democratic governor's nominatini was stolen from him and says h will demand today that a complete recount be made. In the face of an unofficial 886 vote defeat by Johnston Murray Coe declared "some county and pre cinct election offic^ls in this staf are going to the penitentiary fo the election frauds practiced me" Tuesday in the runoff prinwrj The unofficial totals gave Murra 235.525; Coe 234.639. No officials were named, but th bitter candidate asserted: "Already. In Oklahoma Counl ilone, we have uncovered at lea. 3.100 votes stolen from me and gi 1 en to Johnston Murray.' In anothe county of this state, 29 people we: , p oted out of one four-room hous listed as their residence, all voti for Johnston Murray." Campaign of Accusations After a campaign fraught vdJ scathing accusations by Coe con cerning Murray's character, Coe skyrocketed from n 88,000 vote deficit In the first primary. He called Murray a child deserter and draft I avoider. | Murray said he would withhold • comment, pending outcome of the | official tabulation expected laJe to- ! morrow or Saturday. Rcpresenta- ' Lives of both candidates are guisrrl- ing ballot boxes all over tne state. Only eight counties are officially reported, and they changed bul one vote—to Coe. "Coe Has Evidence" Coe claimed he had evidence that one man was paid $1,500 to "deliver 10 precincts to Johnston Murray, after the poils closed in Oklahoma County." He sent out an appeal i for funds for the recount, which costs $19,250 for the 77 counties on the basts of S250 per county. Both candidates are Oklahoma City attorneys. Murray is fi son of former Governor William H. (Alfalfa Bill) Murray, and Coe is a former state senator.
