PAGE BK THURSDAY, SEPT. 4, 1WI Red USO: All Heroes -And No Betty Grable UN TROOPS IN KOREA Rcl a break from wnr with R fong hy Dorothy wenzcl, "Miss USO-Camp Shows." iwslMrrt hy a or. Roils get musical entertainment, too — but It's prupacanrta music. SEOUL, Korea (NEA) — no the Chinese Communists ever takr n break In Korea to relax and enjoy some entertainment the way the UN forces rto? Most certainly, according lo n etory in the Communist-controlled Pelnlng newspaper. "Ta Kung Pno." l copy of which turned up in Seoul. Judging by the description of the "entertainment," however, it's unlikely that the Chinese Reds (eel the same way about it as our own OIs feel about USO-Camp Shows. The idea behind Ihe USO shows, which have been back In operation for more than a year In Korea and other bases throughout the world where Allied troops arc stationed, 1* to try to B've our fighting men a reminder of "back home." Singers, dancers and comedians put on the. same kind of performances they do on American stages. Hut for (hr Reds, It's sfricfly propaganda. Their "entertainers <»'hi actually are nllnrihed to military groups) dramatize heroic dccd< And the same entertainer who's ready with a sotiR or fitory that h?s a "mcr-sntje" must be ready to sho'i!- der a gun or carry ammo during battle. "Tf a man Is on duty and cannot pet away, an entertainer may crawl to his position, crouch behind him and softly sing or tell n story," the Pelptng newspaper, reports. You can figure out for yourself how an American O1. swelling it ortt in his foxhole in Korea would react lo a front-line minstrel. Movies are shown to the Chlnrsr fled armies In rear aren.s. Most of the films glorify Communist heroism, particularly in guerrilla warfare. Love -stories are taboo. And there isn't a Betty Grable IT) the lot.
