THURSDAY, MARCH IT, 1998 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE North Korean Army Growing But No Invasion Is Expected By MURRAY FKOMSON SEOUL (AP) — North Korea's Red army today is larger and belter equipped than when it struck South Korea five years ago. U. S. sources, however, privately discount the probability of.another invasion from the north. So do South Korean officials, despite their publicly pronounced fears. Intelligence reports, gathered by the allies In the past year, Indicate the North Korean army, badly shattered at the time of the flimisltce, has been thoroughly overhauled. Tanks, guns, jet fighters and medium bombers have been brought in since the armistice. The introduction of planes is a violation of the truce. It forbids the introduction of additional weapons although old weapons may be re- pjaced. North Korea had no jet 1 planes at the time of the armistice. Another Dreifus Scoop! A MM FOOD-SAVER 12 PC.

Lee Hyung 1 Keun, chairman of South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff, snid last August North Korea had 'received 200 Russian-made tanks, 300 pieces of heavy artillery, 255 jet fighters and 42 medium jet bombers. The United Nations Command mentioned only the illegal introduction of 150 jet fighters in its protest to the Neutral Nations Supervisory Commission. Conceivably, the artillery and tanks could be replacement of equipment the Chinese Reds took with them when they left. At least 40 new jet airfields have been built. The North Koreans have dug" in deep all across the 155-mile front. But they lack one important thing—full Chinese Communist support. Communist China reported last September the withdrawal of seven divisions from North Korea. But theie is conclusive evidence that up to 11 divisions — about 110,000 men—have been pulled out. The withdrawal still may be going on. Chinese Nationalist intelligence reports these withdrawn troops are now opposite Formosa in the Amoy -Foochow area. Little Enthusiasm With increased Communist concentration on Formosa and Southeast Asia, there appears to be little Red Chinese enthusiasm for renewed adventures in Korea. Without the Chinese Communists to bail them out, the North Korean army could well meet the same fate that befell it at Inchon. The armies were broken and most of their heavy equipment was captured. South Korea has developed one of the largest standing armies in the world. This is far different from that day in 1950 when a poorly firmed constabulary force met the first North Korean onslaught. South Korea has 20 divisions on active duty. Another 10 reserve divisions will be lined out by June. The South Korean air force has been promised 75 Sabre Jets by Neighbors Protest House Sale To Japanese-American Ex-GI SAN LEANDRO, Calif. \» — All American war veteran of Japanese H/ic'esti'y said today he has been trying unsuccessfully for three month:; to buy a home near his dentist office in San Lcandro, a booming suburb of Oakland. "It really hurts when they push you around," said Dr. Satoru Lurry Aikawit, 31, a dentist, born in Stockton. Calif. "They call you up when it i.s time to serve your country in the armed forces." Dr. Aikawa protested after his attempt to buy :i $15.750 home fell through because of neighborhood complaints. Eurl H. Lacount said he was ready to sell his home when an anonymous phone call from a woman warned: "If you sell to Orientals you will not live to sign the deed." Lacount said he then talked to his neighbors, found they were opposed, and called off the deal. Dr. AiKawa said his family — wife and three sons — outgrew the war housing project in which they live.

W)—An official of the City Sanitation Department blames cats for the presence of rats around the Dexter Asylum, the city's home for the homoless poor. | Dr. Edwin Knights said Some asylum patients have pet cats.
