Anderson spotted a Negro farm house 2,000 yards away and broke in when he found no one at home. He wrapped himself in the blankets of the bed and as soon as he got warm, he fell asleep.

TROOPS CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE night The reds rushed supplies and nien to the front without hindrance from Allied night bombers that so far this month have knocked out a near-record 2.606 enemv trucks. As the sun broke through the ciouds at dawn Fridav, Allied warplanes roared into North Korea after 24-hours on the ground due to heavy cloud layers and fog. The winding 155-mile battlefront was almost as quite during the night as the silmt fog that settled ever th. shell-battered hill positions The western front reported no contact at all during the night. The Chinese, hopping from their honeycomb of caves and tunnels at the northern end or the ridge, sprung a 200-man assault against the South Koreans early Thursday, trying three times to gain a stronger foot-hold on the strategic height. They failed. t'mted Press staff correspondent \ ictor Kendrick reported at 11 p.m. •8.00 a.m. est) that it was “verv quiet” at Sniper, as an ominous lull again settled along the 155-mile front. Haze and rain lent a helping hand to the Reds in their desperate rush of supplies to the front. Clouds ar.d haze kept all but a few UN fighter-bombers grounded, halting temporarily the Allies' pulverizing blows to their transportation svs- tem. The UN sent patrols through no­ man s land to flush any Communist troops forming for mass attacks down the invasion routes to Seoul, where Dwight D. Eisenhower is expected to make his headquarters. So far, no buildups have been reported.
