TWO UN Starts Systematic Bombing of N. Korea In Effort to End War WASHINGTON Uti — The United Nations Command has embnrkert on a systematic bombing campaign deliberately calculated (o destroy the enemy's will lo hold out against an armistice in Korea. Military officials here placed this Interpretation on the Tokyo announcement that military targets in 78 North Korean population centers have been selected for destruction, after civilians hnve been warned by rnrtio and leaflets that bombs are coming their way. The psychological warfare ficc- tion of Gen. Mark Clark's U. N. Command borrowed a leaf from World War II history in stressing the warning phase. The most notable precedent for telling enemy civilians lhat, their cities were ear- mnrked • for obliteration was p.s- labllshed in the final, atomic bomb chapter of the war aKainsL Japan. No Hint of Atom Gen. Clark's disclosure of the scheduled effort to smash North Korea's will and ability to continue resistance held no hint, however, of atomic bombings or the kind of mass destruction raids Unit were launched against German mid Japnne.se cities during Hie last war. The U. N. Command niut more, than Hi million leaflets have told North Korean civilians lhat the Allied air forces "must destroy all Communist military supplies and installations—and it knows where they are." U. N. intelligence has Known [or a long time lhat the fleds have been using cities mid loivris not. only to house troops and supplies but also for important headquarters and military communications centers. The Allies hit some of these objectives earlier in the war but generally tried to avoid bombing population centers unless urgent military needs dictated otherwise. The campaign announced from .Tokyo said flatly that civilians in North Korea arc subject, to bombing and strafing when military taV- get.s in their areas arc attacked. The leaflels dropped behind enemy lines blame the Red leaders for Jeopardizing civilians by hiding military objectives in population areas. Phycholcigy Used The psychological (ingle is frankly calculated to wear down the will of civilians and their leaders and thus to weaken the enemy's war effort. Should North Koreans be permitted to leave the cities and the military support Jobs they havi been doing the Red commander, will fmd it even more dtfficul than now to gel supplies and equip inent to their from lines. Ou the other hand, should thi military bosses use force to pre vent civilians from leaving the oil ics. the Allied campaign by leaflet radio and hombs In expected li engender a feeling of helnlessne.s, and futility among the civtlial population.
