Whatever he was two years ago. the terrible fighting on While Hor^e Mountain has shown that Kim has graduated into one of the world's best infantrymen. · KEY BATTLE FEATURE · That peak is a key terrain feature dominating Ihe supply road to Seoul, only 50 miles away. And Seou.1 is to Kim what I/ndon is to an Englishman or Paris to the French. In days and nights ol continuous battle fought in mud and cold rain. the vital peak changed hands many times.

Whether It Is finally won or lost it is a kind of Alamo to the new Republic of Korea Army. Psychologically, Pvl- Kim for centuries has felt inferior to Pvt. Chang of China. He has always been "the little brother" In an Oricntial sphere bossed by "Ihe big brother." Pvt. Cbmit;. DAVID STILL A R O U N D But Pvt. Kini now has proved to lilmseif and doubtful world on White Horse peak that, man for man, he is equal to or better than Pvt. Chang--that David still can take on Goliath. And Pvt. Kim won't forget it. The truth is, of course, that Pvt. Kim. whenever he has been properly trained, well officered and .given enough weapons, has been good soldier all along.
