Paved Way for Early Victory In mid-September th« Allied forces '. In Korea were pinned down in R small bridgehead in the Pusan corner. Two woe.:* later they were in, command of nearly all "South' Korean, and major ,' North Korean resistance had crumbled. Not even th« most, optimistic American* probably imagined that such * mirmculoug change in our Korean for- •unec wai possible. Th« key to this lightning-like rever- ' Ml, of course, wa* the brilliantly-ext cut«d asMuit upon the ; Inchon-Seoul mr»*. But it'» doubtful that the plan- »«r» of thi« maneuver foresaw BO upeedy - a eollaps. of North Korean arrnie*. They wanted Seoul because it con- trok the supply lines to th« south, and . thu» could b« used to chok« off the flow of men and materials to North Koreans pressing against the Pussn bridgehead. Yet when they won the capital city, re- •istanc* by the enemy not only weakened in the south; it-all but disappeared. This was the priceless intangible dividend of the Inchon-Seoul landings. The Aiiie* had «xpected to havr to fight their way doggedly up t| le peninsula, slowly retaking the cities they had yielded so reluctantly in the painful early days of retreat, The first clue that the story would be different cams on Friday, Sept. 22. It was announced that troops of the Inchon-Seoul force had swept into Suwon 20 miles below Seoul, and at the same time that Pusan bridgehead forces had sprinted northward 20-odd miles from their old perimeter. It was plain the North Koreans were breaking up. In the days that followed Allied forces raced on to a junction near Suwon. -The list of cities recaptured read like a gazeteer of Korea—Hamcliang, An- rioug, CJiongju, Chinju, Kumciion, Choch- nvon, Chonan. American news accounts hardly took notice of the regaining O f Taejon, scene of bitter fighting less than two niouhs ago. Now South Korea j s free again and the only question is how far we shall go into North Korea. President Truman and our military leaders in ihe Pentagon are fully justified in proclaiming victory without awaiting further de velopmenU. Our basic (ask, to clear the enemy out of the territory he invaded, is to all intents and purposes ac- tomplished. General M.cArthur, UN commander in Korea, wholly merits the lavish praise poursd on him by th. President and th. Pentagon for his bold and tactically •uperb leadership. His performance in th. Inchon-Seoul area was » military classic; it produced a military miracle ' But no amount of leadership could hay. dont th. job without th. remark-' ab!« cooperation of all the fighting for «s involved. The Navy', handling of th« Inchon landings was without parallel. The spearheading- Marines carved a MW dupur i. th«ir brav, hUlory. Th. Army carried out it» miaaion b««utifu)ly. Behind all thii wai the «ourag• and (kill ot th« battered force* wh« held th. Pusan bridgeliead against repeated enemy attack week after week. Thus what gave promise at the start cf being one of the grimmest passages in U. S. military history has be«n trans- : formed almost overnight into one of the most illustrious. Every American hails this achievement. Every American hopes that Russia's Communist leaders tak« it wisely as a token of what they may expect wherever and whenever they seek to narrow further the area of world freedom. .)

Views of Others Longer 'Hitch' Proposal On. Hershey and Sen. Gurney, former armed »ervices committee chairman, want the draftee term of service boosted from 21 months to 30 or 36 months. But they probably will have to make i much better case lor their proposal than they have so far If they expect to (el anywhere with Congress. Up to now they have simply argued, without a showing of .fact*', that It will take the longer "hitch" to build the forces up 'to 3,000,000 men and. keep them- there. It could be that they are thinking the current rat*, of rejections -will be maintained.

Ernest Bewn's Health Causes Britain Concern TM DOCTOR SAYS AS of todaya question* deal rilh the problems involving breathing apparatus. the Ptter fdson't Washington Colum Heads of New War Agencies Have Country s Most Thankless Jobs WASHINGTON (NBA)—There Is some cause to wonder whether this country know* what it let itself in for under the "Defense Production Act of 1950," , passed by Congress early in September. A lot of things were authorized under that act which haven't begun to happen yet. When they do begin to happen, there may be ing of the type much j loud squaring of the type there was again s t O P A, Teter edwn WPB and the other civilian agencies of the last war. The only part of this act now 'unctiomng .Is the NPA—National Production Authority under wil- iam H.- Harrison. Even It is in em- iryo form, having headquarters on he filth floor-of the Commerce Department. But it has barely he- gun to assemble its staff. When it tarto growing, it will slop over into >ne or more of the nearby tempo- •ary structures still left standing from the last war, NPA has Issued only one order at this writing—an allocation and inventory order whose effects have not ,yet begun to be felt. One of thue.fine fall days, small business concerns are going to wake up and find that they are having difficulty getting materials. The old small business problem of World War II will then become a hot . potato again. If It isn't solved any better ,lhls time than it was last, It won't | be solved at all. Another Item with n. hidden punch In this production act is "Title III—Expansion of Productive Capacity and Supply." This Is to all Intents and purposes the same thing as President Truman's production expansion plan of a year and a half ago. Some 1-oud Walls were Kurlhrnrninr. You may recall how much criticism the President caught for this when he first proposed it. His idea then was that the government should step in and expand pr Auction in any industry whose capacity was not considered great enough to keep up with the growth of the country. For this he was accused of wanting to socialize industry. The wall of criticism that went up was deafening. ; Now. however, it seems to be all right. It is so all right that Congress authorized *2 billion for such government financed expansion of Industry. And It has made »600 mil. lion available for 'use' at once i;i furthering this program Wnlt till the orders start'"dropping under this provision. It will be handled a little different this time. Instead of an "Uncle Jesse" Jones as federal loan administrator making most of the decisions, the regular departments of Commerce, Agriculture and Interior will do the planning. Reconstruction Finance Corporation will be Just the fiscal agent, carrying out the orders of the other three. W. Stuart Symington, chairman of National Security Resources Board, has been designated as the top moblllier, but he has not begun to make his weight felt. Three other unknown officials, any one or more of whom may be named by the President even before this gets Into, print, will be worth watching. These will be a director of Economic Stabilization a price See —•»--• Disquieting news comet out -.

"We got to a perfectly ridiculous slam contract and It Is obvious that there was something radically wrong with our bidding in fact .each of us Is so sure that the other one Is entirely wrong mat we have made a small bet on your decision. ""ere are our argument*. South claims that hi, hand Ls almost equal to an opening two bid In strength and that he was entitled to go to a. slam when North showed strength by jumping to four hearts. "North claims that his bid ol [our hrarl.s showed strength all right hut that at the same time U, shower!

Strangely enough, the way the cards lie I imagine that' poor south was set three tricks at j his slam contract. All it required ! waj the normal opening of the club ten and one lead of tnimps by the defense before he got a chance to trump his third club In dummy. On the other hand Morth would have no trouble making his four heart contract with an overtrick. According to modern expert bidding North Is entirely correct.

[fc As foreign secretary .In BrllahTi first outright labor (Socialist) government, Bevin has been constantly engaged In Important international affairs. In this role he hat been a pillar of Western-power solidarity. Defeats Pacifist MOT* One of the achlevements~~of th» foreign secretary's speech yesterday was the defeat of a Ift-wlng pacifist resolution calling for new talks with Russia. His attitude towards th» V.N. was summed up like this: "We have tried the four power and live power business of settling he fate of all little powers. I don't like the prospect of assuming that' every little country can be bandied about on the decisions of the bit ones." • > * Instead, he declared, he prefers to work entirely'through the UN Well, should this prove to be B»v- fn's last address before Labor Party conference as foreign secretary he will have wound up with a fighting speech. It typifies his whole attitude towards public life 'since the hoginnlug of his political career when he threw a noisy opponent bodily into a river. « For some time now Mrs. BtWi ias been accompanying her husband on his trips to watch over his health.

On the other hand I do not feel that South should hold his heart In shame. It would have required a very strong constitution to pass th« four heart bid. Actually, South would have been better off had he opened with two diamonds. Then he might have been willing to pass at four hearts on the theory that his two diamond opening had shown his full strength. Incidentally, this" .la.u point Is well worth bearing In mind.
