N. delivered what Washington sources called a firm demand that the Reds agree immediately to steps leading to a prompt armistice. Informed quarters have said efforts to agree on final details of a truce were stalemated by Red demands for the recapture of 27,000 anti-Communist war prisoners liberated last month and ironclad guarantees that South Korea will honor a truer.

Combs said the deductible clause was designed to be optional but that prices fixed by the Insurance Bating Bureau for non-deductible insurance were making it mandatory. He said he had asked the bureau to file a new application for such insurance. The order, which went into effect June 29, allowed insurance firms to pay all damages above $50, with home-owner bearing the _ first $50 cost. All policies written since June . 29 and containing the deductible clause will be rewritten to conform to any new order issued by the insurance department.

Maxwell D. Taylor called " the first resumption of open warfare in two years." Latest reports cleared by censors said South Korean soldiers hit and overran about 1,500 Chinese Reds in the Kumsong River valley. Taylor, U. S. 8th Army com mander, disclosed that the Chinese Reds' massive lOdivision offensive this week—mightiest in two years —flattened the Allies' Kumsong Bulge. This meant a TJ.

The 9th American Corps and 2nd Korean Corps were identified as manning the Kumsong River line —the first disclosure that TJ. 8. infantrymen were in the area hit by the giant Red push. Tight military censorship hid of iicial mention of whether Ameri cans were taking part in the big counterattacks. Front Stabilized Taylor said the front was etabil ized "generally along an east west line at the base of, the former salient"—where the Allies held a sevenmile northward bulge as a result of gains 20 months ago. Dispatches cleared by censors meanwhile told of successful South Korean counterattacks -it both sides of the front, backed by swarms of American and Allied warplanes and thunderous artillery. The ROK division which Thurs day night smashed a Chinese at tack aimed at the vital highway junction of Kumhwa, western an chor of the Central Front, was identified by Taylor as the 9th. heroes of savage fighting at White Horse Mountain last fall. Friday the ROKs launched a daring counterattack and recap tured two outpost hills. Taylor said the South Koreans inflicted heavy losses on the Chinese. Other South Koreans were offl cially reported to have scored even larger gains—more than a mile— on the Kumsong Front to the east, where the Reds had advanced up i to seven miles Monday and Tues PAYETTEVILLE W) - The new day.
