NEW MANILA, ARK. Air Conditioned By Refrigeration Matinees Sat. & Sun. Phone 58 "Your Community Center" Starts Tonight THURS - FRI - SAT DON'T MISS! from Kumhwa Itself. Kumhwa, protected by a single hill on its west side, lies as a prize between the twin claws of Triangle Hill and Sniper Ridge, which descend from the towering 3,600- foot Communist fortress of Papa- San, only four miles north of the road junction. Kumhwa Is vitally important because of its military roads. To lose it would mean that the Allies would have to readjust their east-west road network and face the long- range possibility of a Chinese attack toward either Seoul or Chun chon. Any battle around Kumhwa could turn into one of the great actions area and is the keystone of the 8th five major arterial roads in its Army front in its present line. Allied officers said South Koreans on the Kumsong front aunched their counter-offensive on oSstanding orders to march when Red drive petered out, as happened Wednesday. Clearing skies permitted swarms Allied warplanes to pound the Chinese for the first time. The tank-supported South Korean columns rolled north under the personal observation of their hard- boiled chief of staff, Gen. Sun Yup Paik, and with an exhortation from President Syngman Rhee not to "Yield even one inch of ground regardless of its importance." Gen. Mark W. Clark, U. N. Pal- East commander, told newsmen on arrival in Seoul en route to a firsthand look at the battle, "The front situation appears to be in hand from reports I have received." Associated Press Correspondent Forrest Edwards accompanied Gen. Paik on a helicopter tour of the embattled ROK division. Edwards said Paik is confident the Chinese will be thrown back and kept north of the Kumsong River. Earlier an ROK corps commander said he is confident his men would be able to push back to the river. Gives 'Em Hell Everywhere Pail landed, Edwards said, he strode forward, hand on his, huge pistol and tongue lashed any soldier sloppily dressed, inactive or downcast. Summing up his tour, Faik said, "Discipline and morale much better. I give 'em all hell." Allied fighter-bombers opened their attack at dawn by knocking out the main bridge on the Kum- song River just west of its junction with the Pukhan, the Air Force said. Although the span had been mined, the ROKs had failed to blow it up in their hurried withdrawal Tuesday. The South Korean counterattack followed a lull in the fighting • f ?r (lie massive Red drive Monday and Tuesday. Allied officers said the Chinese push, although the greatest in two years, apparently was intended to be only a limited offensive, aimed at flattening the Allies' Kumsong Bulge in the mid- tile of the 155-mile front. The officers expressed confidence any new Red attacks in the ftrea would be held off, especially with air power back in action. Asked if he thought the Chinese had attacked for propaganda purposes, Paik shook his head and said: "The Chinese have many reason for many things. Who knows what this one way?" MCCARTHY TRUCE (Continued from Page D of the facts developing from South Korea's opposition to a truce. Some observers said the Allied position might have been couched in terms approaching an ultima- um. Officers in close touch with the •I'gotiations made no effort to hide 'loir growing concern over the "nuthenind truce sessions. There was speculation that the '5-minutc delay in toda5''s meeting .was to enable Harrison to receive new instructions from higher authorities. (Continued from Fig* 1) subcommittee staff personnel came hard on the heels of a controversy over a magazine article written by J. B. Matthews. Matthews, hired by McCarthy ns the subcommittee's executive staff director, wrote in the article that the largest single group supporting the Communist apparatus in America is composed of Protestant clergymen. The trio of Democrats denounced this as a shocking and unwarranted attack on the Protestant clergy. Matthews submitted his resignation, but MCarthy accepted it only after President Eisenhower joined in criticism of the article. Matthews yesterday asked the House Un-American Activities Committee to hear his contentions of Red subversion in the clergy. Committee Chairman elde (R-I11) Vtold newsmen his "purely personal" opinion was that Matthews' request should be grafted. But he said it was up to the full committee. No Questioning McCarthy's earlier suggestion that the investigations subcommittee question Matthews was rejected as outside that group's jurisdiction. In his letter today, McCarthy said he was "totally unaware of he controversial article written by Dr. Matthews at the time he was engaged." He said that, if the Democrats lad followed his proposal to "work out a solution agreeable to you, . . this entire matter would have been disposed of ... in an orderly manner without the injection of partisan politics and the fanning of religious bigotry, witti resultant damage to the reputations of all concerned." McCarthy wrote that, after they Jrst discussed the issue at a con- erence July 3, the Democrats advised him they had decided to demand Matthews' resignation. He said he attempted to dissuade them "in the belief that to create a religious controversy where there rightfully was none and to give this situation a partisan complexion would do injury to our churches, :o the work of the committee, and to public opinion in this country ] which might erroneously conclude our committee had some intention of investigating the churches." The three Democratic senators also got a letter yesterday from Patrick Murphy Malin, executive di- •ector of the American Civil Liber- Union, questioning whether Matthews' civil liberties were vio- ted.

This word comes from the President's press secretary, James C. Hagerty, who was interviewed last night on the initial program of nn NBC radio broadcast series, "Report from the White House." Hagerty, who has been with Eteenhow- er since the Chicago nominating contention last year, told interviewer Ray Scherer the President "has a healthy respect for the integrity and honesty of the men and women covering the news here In Washington." "This goes for the top officials around Eisenhower, too," Hagerty said, adding: "We don't always agree with what you write, but we don't challenge your right to write it."

Benson said he was not yet ready to make positive recommendations for changes in farm programs. Nevertheless, he said the "American way" to push ahead is self-help programs of farmers' own development.
