WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1«, 1950 PAGEOTB Red Army Grows Despite Casualties Explanations Include Russian Help By ELTON C. FAY AP MiliUrr Affairs Keporter WASHINGTON, Aug. 16. (ff) — How can the.. Korean Red Army have casualties estimated at more than 40,000—yet continue to strike hard and have far more men than when It started? There are several explanations, some obvious and sonje assumptions, among them these: 1. Conscription of men In both Jfcfth and South Korea, a practice 1^! widely In Asiatic wars, has replaced battlefield losses and swelled (he over-all strength. 2. Manpower may be filtering Sown from Manchuria and from Communist China, fed into Red army units In 'small but steady numbers to augment the North Korean force. 3. Estimates of Red casualties may be too high. Perhaps the original estimate of 90.000 to 100.000 •nen In the Red army at the start of the war was too low. There maj have been many troops in reservi that are lust now being sent inii action. Last week the Far East commam sent the Pentagon an estimate i about 37500 tit nl casiwlies for th Communist forces. Comnumloue since then contain figures tbtalln about 3 loo more. 5« Days of For 50 days of fi-'htlng by an orig inal force of 100 030 men that wou! be a hiah rate. But It is not at all Impossible that the Communists would have been able to replace them from tbe manpower pool in and outeide of Korea, ii-smr* the conscription method and providing 1 little or no training of such • "recruits: 1 Although the casualty estimate comes from headquarters and field commands. It Is, at best, only an estimate. An accurate count of ene- Bt dead and wounded* Is difficult ^Bn when the forces making the estimate are moving forward in former enemy territory where nose's can be counted. It Is even more difficult when the force is in retreat or standing at a fixed position, as Is the case of. 'the United States and South Korean defenders. It- Is much easier to estimate the strength of the enemy's troops and units In action. They can be seen across the firing line. Captured prisoners give information on iden- , ttty of units. Estimates of the present strength of the Red army, therefore, is Interesting. 15 Communist Divisions A dispatch from Tokyo yesterday Bald 15 Communist divisions, with a total strength of possibly 150.000 men, have been identified In and around the Korean front. That would indicate that the enemy not oniy-hns made a net increase of about 50.000 In his manpower strength, but has doubled the number of h! E combat units.

Captured Mortar "shell The Russian spokesman at the United Nations claimed recently that material in North Korea could be only that sold by Russia when her occupation forces withdrew two years ago from the area north of the 38th Parallel. His explanation stood only until the Pentagon received from the front a picture of a captured Russian mortar shell, bearing the manufacture date of 1950. The picture apparently confirmed what had been suspected since the early weeks of the war, that Russia continues to be an arsenal for the Korean Red army Some questions have been raised about the means by which the Reds continue to get ample sup- JjLis of ammunition and food to the IWnl line troops when American ait attacks constantly cut up highways and rail routes from North Korean depots.
