On Bloody Ridge, the furiously- attacking Communists stormed the outpost slopes and, at last report, the ROKs had withdrawn to the . . Outpost Center and were stream-1 a d™* billowing TANKERS (Continued from Fnge W boats on (he Pan Massachusetts jammed nnd couldn't be lowered. As lookout on the Pan Massachusetts, here's how he saw the collision: '' Privat* Citizens Help "We saw the Phoenix turning in .'ront of us and heard two lona ilasus from her. We gave two back, and took a hard left to the port, but it wasn't enough. We hit the Phoenix aft of their midship house. The crash was about 11:16 p. m. hip time (12:16 EDT). There were explosions on both ships and then ire." Hibler said he was picked up by me of the many private citizens who put out to help pick up sur- 'ivors. Both ships are grounded on the New Jersey side of the river and All Is Quiet as Italy Gets Ready to Vote By FRANK BHUTTO ROME <AP) — A law-enforced pre-election calm settled over Italy today M the nation's so'milllon voters prepared to ballot for their second post-war parliament. The voting begins tomorrow an will continue Monday. At stak are 590 seats in the Chamber i Deputies and 237 In the Senate. Confront the voters are thre clearly-marked choices: 1. The middle-of-the-road-four , could be seen miles from the scene. The general area in which the crash occurred is thick with ship- ing mortar and artillery fire on the Reds. Fighting has been almost con- ping lraftlc . T;illk e r s and freighters tinuous on the Eastern Front hill ,£ •> nm , down the bay between mass since Monday night when -| jn duslrial Philadelphia area the North Koreans got their first foothold on Uie tip of Luke's Castle terrain. Despite repeated South Korean counter-attacks, the Beds lashed further ahead and now hold about one-hall of the forward ridge of the Castle. On the Western Front, other South Korean troops killed an estimated 100 of 300 Chinese who attacked an outpost southwest of Kelly Hill before midnight Friday. The Reds pounded the outpost with 3,000 mortar and artillery shells In tha Z'/ 2 hour fight. There was speculation the Communists stepped up the fighting along the Eastern and East-Central Fronts—despite signs that a tru^ may be imminent—for two reasons: 1. To gain ground for the time when ft buffer zone between the present battlelines is set up after * truce. 2. To weaken the South Koreans, who man that part of the front. The South Koreans have threatened to continue the fighting in the •vent of a truce. Meariwhile, small Chinese forces probed an American division in the Panmunjom sector on the extreme Western Front and withdrew after short harassing actions. Allied aerial strikes over North Korea were hampered by heavy overcast Saturday morning and early afternoon, but 32 fighter- bombers using electronic aiming devices hit scattered Red frontline points. No MIGs Spotted Small flights of Sabre Jets prowled south of the Yalu River but did not spot any Communist MIGs. Marine fighter-bombers from the aircraft carrier Bairoko hit Red command posts Sturday morning at Haeju and Ongjln above the Wstern Front. Other carrier planes blasted targets on the East Coast. The Air Force mounted nearly 1,000 attack sorties against the Reds Friday and during the night. Nineteen B29s hit battlefront positions for the fourth night in a row. The Superforts again concen- nnd the Atlantic Ocean, about 100 miles away. The Pan Massachusetts, enroute from Texas City, Tex., carried a crew of 41 and Capt. dross said he believed all of his men were accounted for. The Phoenix had 45 aboard including Capt. Gustav A. Japachen, Langhorne, Pa., who was burned seriously. 'Inure \w.s no report on the extent of injuries although a few men are believed to be critical. George S. Parent, Lamarque, Tex., first assistant engineer on the Pan Massachusetts, said he didn't know what had happened. He said the last he saw before jumping .into the river was the phoenix breaking in two. John Wilhite, Truman, Ark., a crewmember of the Phoenix, said he was in the water a couple of hours before being picked up by a tug. Micaehl Vove, of West Grove, Pa., mess man on the Pan Massachusetts said he was in his bunk when the crash woke him up. He went topside and said he could see the flames from the other ship. He jumped when he saw his ship was on fire. RHEE (Continued from Page 1) of the Korean people in its hands Dr. Rhee probably feels he musl give In. But you can say this for me, unless the U. S. accepts our counter-proposals, we won't sign.' Karl said in Seoul, "I have never gotten any impression from the President of any sign of withdrawal" of his previous Insistence that the truce offer was unacceptable to South Korea. Karl warned against what he called "selling out of the free world to the Communists." TRUCE Floods Kill 14 In West Japan TOKYO iff] — Torrential rains heralding u typhoon from the .south have flooded Western Japan, killing 14 persons, injuring 25 nnd leaving nine missing. NiHioiml Rural Police headquarters said today. The rnins started Wednesday and were still raging today over Kyushu, Japans' .southern mnin island, and Western Honshu, the central main island.

Only a few hours earlier, however. Rhee declared in a recorded interview that "we would accept almost any proposal the United States asks of us because the United States is the only friendly nation which has done so much for us in the past and who will do much more for us in the future." Truce negotiators have met in secrecy since Lt. Gen. William K. Harris Jr. handed the Communists on May 25 a "now or never" plan to break the prisoner exchange deadlock. After Saturday's session Lt. Col. Milon Herr, official U. N. spokesman, would say only that the meet- Ings were still in executive session. This places the cloak of secrecy around at least the opening of Sunday's session. One source here said negotiators might be waiting Until all loose ends are tied up before any announcement is made. Boycotted Session South Korea's truce delegate. Maj. Gen. Choi Duk Shin, again boycotted Saturday's session. The boycott, which began with the May 25 session, is to protest armistice terms Rhee and other South Korean government leaders lave branded "unacceptable." a "death sentence" and a "sellout." Rhee's counter-proposal called for: 1. Withdrawal of all foreign troops—Allied and Chinese—from Korea. 2. Immediate and automatic U. S. intervention in the event South Korea is again attacked. 3. An adequate .supply of arms, [immunilion find other supplies to party coalition headed by Premier Alcide de Gasperi, whose pro-united States. pro-Europeon unity government has guided Italy for the past seven year.s.

De Gasperi brought his Christian Democrat party's intense campaign to an end in Rome's central Piazza del Popolo. An estimated 100,000 ad- rers gathered there shouted "No! No! No!" to his question: "Do you .nt to return to Fascism?" CHAPTER tt Queen Mary broke through much of ihe red tape which surrounded a woman of the Royal Family. Queen Elizabeth has followed In her grandmother's footsteps and gone a good deal further. At the age of 16 she insisted on being allowed to Join the ATS, and there obtained a valuable Insight into the lives of other women, a knowledge she could never have picked up from a lifetime of tours and inspections.

She hates to think of people suffering, or being denied sustenance or comfort. Although as Qyeen she must remain above politics, it is certain that she will always keep an eye open for the rights of the Individual. Then, after those Invaluable months in the Army, where for the first time the public read of a Princess lying on her back in oil- stained overalls, tinkering with the engine of a lorry, she married Prince Philip. That was a love match comparable with any in fiction. It is a beautiful and wonderful thing that | Queen Elizabeth should have found the man she loves a new and refreshing source of contact -with the kind of people she will rule over. The Duke of Edinburgh's life has not been led behind cloistered walls. He has lived always among men of action, whose thoughts and feelings he can translate to the Queen, giving her an insight she would never have been able to gather in any other way. There is no doubt that the posi- crX*^*'; tlon of the Throne has undergone great development and expansion in the past 50 years. Britain's Royal Family hive gone through some hard times in the history of the past few centuries. Never have they been so loved and so much part of their people's lives as they are today. When they visited South Africa on that triumphal tour of 1947, such was ther charm that even the Republican critics who most keenly attacked them, were silenced by It and completely won er. Queen Elizabeth has that natural dignity so necessary to a position which makes her the center of all eyes wherever she goes, she has the charm and personality which make people warm to her a person regardless of her rank, and she has a profound background knowledge about the meaning of her position in the world. I often used to think, as I watched Princess Elizabeth leading a long line of dancers round .he Palace ballrooms during those nformal evening parties she so e.l- loyed, that this was an emiiely new view of Royalty. Not for her the distant dignity which makes the Throne a thins of awe, and sometimes terrifying. She prefers that human appvc/.ch more in keeping with the times and her own modern temperament. Queen Victoria loved to dance herself, and certainly did so with her beloved Prince Consort, but can you imagine her so throwing off the solemnity of her position as to lead a cheerful .romp of fliat nature? I cannot. In every way Queen Elizabeth's nature proves her to be a Woman of Her Time. She Insisted that her husband battles this week in which 10 MIGs were destroyed, one probably de- troyed and eight damaged. Three Sabres, however, were lost to "other causes." the Air Force said, and one T6 propeller- driven spotter plane was lost to enemy groundfire. The 700th MIG downed by Sabres was claimed by the 4th Fight- er-Intercepter Wing late Friday afternoon. Koje Incidents Kill One Red POW, Injure 2 work's mr,"tinc u-ill bf Worth Holder.

It would not be hard to visualizt Queen Elizabeth as Mrs. Montbat- tan, an entertaining sort of person, easy to please, ready to laugh, invariably considerate of Uie feelings of others. I see her as an excellent housefl'iN and mother. Whatever she does, she does well. And then, with a humanity which warmed many hearts, she flew out to him as soon as she could catch for a little while the delight any wife takes in her husband's presence. All this places her in an entire- part of the law of the land that ly personal position in British hearts. No one can feel about her that she is just a figurehead. She is too alive, too wairm, too vital ever to be thought of in that way. There are mauy State duties on the highest level which the Queen has to perform.
