His company was moving forward attacking enemy-held, positions in the hilly region around the town. From well-prepared positions, a reinforced enemy company was defending this terrain, with automatic weapons and small arms fire. Upon reaching the ridge line approaching its objective, the First Platoon became surrounded and was unable to send or receive orders, thus forcing the other platoons to halt their advance. Sergeant Starrfbaugh volunteered to go through the lines with instructions and try to reach the surrounded platoon. Cautiously, he crawled toward the surrounded platoon, realizing that the fate of the men might well lay in his accomplishing the mission. He passed three enemy soldieis and "was wearing the platoon when his presence was detected and he received terrific fire. As a hail of bullets struck the area, be, with complete disregard/ for his personal safety began to inch his way from hi precarious position Continuing his advance, he way able to deliver the nessage and at the appointed time. ;he platoons coordinated their efforts, converging an one point in the enemy line, cracking it and driving them back, killing 50 enemy, wounding many and causing others to flee in disordered retreat. Sergeant Stambaugh's heroic action and devotion to duty wer« instrumental in his company's sue 1 * cessful completion of its mission and reflect great credit on himself and the United States Infantiy. Entered military service from Emmitsburg, Maryland." Calls For Support Of Chinese On Formosa NEW YORK, Nov. 22, )--Gov. Thomas E Dewey today called upon the United States to buttress Chinese Nationalist Government m Formosa with "moral support, technical assistance, political support, combined with arms and financial aid," Reporting in Collier's magazine on his recent 41,000-mile tour of the Far East, the New York Governor said America must "become at least as intelligent as the Kremlin, for once." "Let us keep our friends, back them up and make them, strong," he said. ". . . . Every day the danger grows -greater that Red Chinese soldiers may invade Indochina if they are not busy at home, and I propose that we allow their free countrymen who want to liberate China to keep them busy at home.' Dewey said this does not mean we will be involved in war on the Chinese mainland. HP explained: "Russia is waging wars--violenl wars--through native Communists in five of the countries I visited . . . . Yet Stalin is smugly pointing out to his people that not one Russian has been killed in Korea in the Philippines, in Malaya, in Indochina or in Indonesia " Dewey said the United States can't risk having Its defense "'shrink back to Hawaii or the coast of California." Despite its defects. Dewey said. Nationalist China must be suppoit- ed as "one of the forces nece.ssary to keep the R«*ds from over-ruuninK the Pacific." He added: "If Chiang Kai-Shek were as bad as his enemies claim, he'would still be a thousand times better than Mao Tse-Tlmg, who has killed American boys for a year in Korea."
