WEDNESDAY, AUGUST' 9, 1950 BLVTHEVILLE. (ARK.) COUKIER NIWS PAGI THREM Pentagon Pins Watchful Eye On Red Drive Aimed atTaegu Move Regarded As Dangerous But Not Disastrous ., By ELTON C. FAY •liMekatcd Prta* MlliUry Affair* ~ Reporter) WASHINGTON', Aug. 9. (if>— The Pentagon high command 1 was keeping i watchful eye today on the North Korean plncer move aimed at the Important United Nations communications «nd .supply center of Taegu. H was viewed here as potentially dangerous, but not necessarily disastrous. Through Taegu's rail and highway center flow the ammunition supplies and reinforcements needed by American and South Korean divisions manning the central northern front, along the Naktong River line on which a firm foothold is behu attempted. The fall Taea'u thus would lie more than loss of territory and another dent in the now contracted defense perimeter. The problem of supply Jrora the rear area of Pusan would become even worse. But it was pointed out, even ! the defense line at Taegu should be pushed back there are a number of good positions in mountainou country behind the city along which a new defense sector could be es tablished. Nalttonf Not Final Line The pentagon has insisted tha the Naktong River line and th area near it should not be consider ed as definitely the final line, tha v [all-back to a still shorter inne f&ition- in the hilly country the southeast might become neces sary. While on estimated 12,000 Korea; Reds pushed across the Nakton Hiver in three prongs, one of whlc had moWd up to a dozen miles from Taegu last night. American infantr and Marines on the south flan were making progress with the own attack there, the first larg offensive action against the enemy Veteran military men here sa nothing unprecedented In the fai that each side should have mounte «n offensive almost stmultaneousl They remarked that was a eammo tactic and practice and a risk arm ies must take. When one side com mils large forces to an attack at certain point, the other side make its own strike elsewhere for th two-fold purpose of gaining grou and attempting to divert some strength from the opposition's attack to his own menaced area. Handicaps for the American troops which have existed all through the Korean retreat phase will tontlnue even during offensive »c- s. it .is pointed out.:~- anguajce, Roads A™ Problem* nong them are these: 1. Language difficulties. This difficulty «xlsU not only between American and their South Korean alliet, 'but cause complications in other ways.

They also made off with 50. pounds of steak, a pound of coffee, a quart of whiskey, and five packages of cigarettes. the area or find they must talk with villagers lor information. 2. The lack or adequate highways for moving supply trucks and weapons. Many Korean roads are single-lane affairs—a traffic headache when convoys must move up with supplies while others " must head back empty for reloading at the rear. Rain turns these country lanes Into ribbons of bottomless mud Bridges, built for animal draw vehicles, can't carry the weight o! trucks and tanks without virtual rebuilding 1 . ;t.
