FAGI tnc Yanks Look at Korean War With Humor for First Time (AM.)' COURIER *f HAL BOVLE OK TH1 ROAD TO SEOUL WR— There Is * lift of laughter along the front. For the first lime the American Midler can look at the Korean campaign with a real sense of humor. He has lost his grudge against his country. For long weeks he was dazed by .the realization thai he was an outpost warrior of a Innd wealthy beyond belief—but a land to weak mllltarly to quickly settle a peach-threatening war In an ob»cur« »ud backward oriental nation. Men and machines now have ap- , peared on the battlefront to end ! the days of sacrifices and to muscle through to victory. And that has restored (he fntth •of Army men In the American homeland. Some of them have been overseas so long that subconsciously they had come to think ol the United Stales chiefly as a supply base that had helped them occupy Japan In comfort. The middle and upper level Army. • brass, however, is less happy than the average rifle-carrying foot sol- dier. Casually R»U ii Hl(h The casualty rate, as usual In warfare, has been particularly high among junior offlcsrs and jion- coms. They are the ones who must generally tell the men to get up and go—and w ho must then personally lead the privates into battle. At the combat level the army feels It has lost, in a small-scale war, too many trained soldiers who ought to be saved for a possible large scale action. These include the battle experienced sergeants from the second wroli) war and the young graduates of West point, in whom the country has invested thousands of dollars to learn the tactics and the strategy of warfare. A cynical officer of the National Guard would put It this way: "The war In Korea came up so fast that the regular Army had to fight. They didn't have time to corral and tralnt he civilian draftees." "We Hart to Right" But a staff officer of the regular Army said: "We hati to fight with what we dad. We have lost In combat men who ought lo serve u a tr*lnlng corps for the future. "And we have kill off future leadership here during a n emergency that we may need later In a bigger war. The west Point class of 1940 In particular has been hard hit. We have lost lieutenants we might want as generals 10 years from now. And they ore gone," This doesn't concern the average soldier in an army he joined for security and which suddenly had plunged him into the insecurity of battle. More signed up to learn A trade than signed to hold a hill In Korea. But they're finding fun again now—just as the drafted soldiers died In the last world war when the tide turned. They've got back to quarrelling about the team that will win the world series. , "The war Is all over, "jokes a veteran. "Really—no kidding?" says a recruit hopefully. And the answer comes: "Yeah, all over the next hill." But It is true. The United Nations has won a short war In a long grope for world peace. 85 Per Cent of Naval Enlisted Reserve Have Been Called Up .' ORLEANS, Sept. 28.

Iron Goes Begging GOA, Portuguese India W|—An estimated 10.COO tons of iron ore have piled up here because of a sudden fall in foreign demand.
