Lovett's reply said battle casualties through Feb. 22 numbered 105.992 and that the Army had not been making the non-battle casual- ti-s public In recent months. The defense secretary said these formerly Included men who checked Into sick bays or even asked for an aspirin. He said the defense department had revised Its data under the title "non-battle dead, missing and evacuated sick nnd injured." Lovett said U. S. armed forces all over the world suffered 17.75'i battle deaths from June 20. 1950— the starting date of the War — through the end of 1951. There were, he said, "8,935 deaths from all other causes." Total deaths were listed at 26.680. The secretary said only 1.600 of the non-battle deaths were in the Japan-Korea area. Knowland said he also will ask Defense Department spokesmen about reports from Korea that tanks and artillery recently have not been getting enough ammunition. He read parts of a letter from a frontline U. S. soldier, who said: "Our tanks are set upon a ridge and have unlimited targets to shoot at, but they only give them a very limited supply of ammunition, so they fire their load for a day in about a half hour or 45 minutes. "At the rate this war Is going, It ought to last at least 20 years. I think the next step will be to take away the weapons and start throw- ins rocks. It will be cheaper thai way."
