?AGI EIGHT BLYTHKVJLLB, (ARK.) COURIER NEW* Army Finds Hew Evidence of Aid By Soviet Russia Report Also Says Chines* Red Arm let Massing Near Korea WASHINGTON. Aug. 26. (fl>)—Tile Army reported new evidence today of recent Russian shipments of fighting equipment to the Korean Communists. A briefing officer at defense headquarters told reporters of the development. The disclosure came on the heels of a report from the same source yesterday that 120 heavy tanks were shipped to North Korea in July from the Russian- controlled port of Dalren. Russian spokesmen have insisted that the Soviet Union has provided the Korean Reds with no additional lighting tools since Russian soldiers were pulled out of North Korea. Coupled with the report on tanks was an account of the massing of two Chinese Communist armies near the Korean border. At this morning's regular briefing at the Pentagon, the Army Spokesman said: ; "Interrogation of North Korean prisoners tends to confirm reports that Soviet Russia .has sent equipment to the North Korean Reds after 1949. Prisoner Testifies "In one case a prisoner claimed fo have seen as late ns June, 1950, the delivery of Russian weapons. He nald he saw the Russian seal oni boxes. Among the weapons he claimed to have seen were 24 76-mm. 1 and 12 122-mm. artillery pieces. Representatives of the United Nations other than American representatives witnessed the questioning of fhe above prisoner and stated that he made his statement without being subjected to threats or being offered any reward. In response to inquiries, the Army spokesman said 'reports on llic- shipmcnt of 120 tanks from Dajreu described them as heavy tanks. He said the only heavy tnnks Russia Is known to have are Joseph Stalin Ill's, believed to weigh between 50 and 60 tons each and to mount. 122- mm. guns, considerably larger than the 90-mm. guns on U.S. medium tanks. . The officer said, however, that the Information did not specify that the tanks were Joseph Stalin m. Whether the reported tank reinforcements can be brought to the •battle area Is a question in view of mounting American air n.tSncks on communication lines.
