FOU*TEENThe News, Frederick, MUL, Tuesday, Deo«mb«r «, 1M1 Casualties Of AllU.N.Put At 107,611 PARIS, Dec. 3--#»}--The number of reported United Nations casualties to the Korea war today total- led 107,611. This does not include the 212,544 casualties suffered by the South Koreans as of their last report in June. The Pentagon estimated that Communist North Korean and Chinese Communist losses through Oct. 13 were 1,402,504. Of the total announced U. N. casualties, 16,805 were killed, 75,949 wounded and 14,113 missing. The difference is accounted for by the failure of some nations to break down casualty figures and by the fact that some counted as missing or prisoners have since returned. S3 Per Cent Of Total The U. 5. total of 100,883 makes up 93 per cent of the total U. N. casualties. Th'e British total of 3.073 announced by the war office October 31 represented 343 dead, 1,024 wounded, 1,097 missing, and 609 known prisoners. The war began in June 1950. v Other casualty listings: France: 152 dead, ITS, wounded. 14 missing, total 338Canada: 106 dead, 130 wounded, four missing, total 540. Australia: 140 dead, 451 wounded, 13 pilots missing, total 604. Philippines: 45 dead. 164 wounded, 67 missing, total 276. Colombia: 50 dead, 126 wounded, total 176. Netherlands: 68 dead, 128 wounded, three missing, total 200. . New Zealand: 35 dead, 41 wounded, two rnissing, total 58. South Africa: 23 fighter squadron pilots missing, 43 aircraft lost. The latest U S- figures showed a total of 100,883 casualties since the beginning of the conflict, of which 15.323 were killed in action. 72,952 wounded and 10.856 still missing. The latest figures for Belgium- Luxembourg, Turkey, Greece and Thailand are those reported last October 31. Bureau To Let Out Knowledge Of Gamblers WASHINGTON, Dec. The Internal Revenue Bureau decided today to spill the beans on about 2,500 registered gamblers to local police officers throughout the nation. And it tightened the squeeze by preparing a crackdown of its own on a conservatively estimated 15,000 suspected gamblers who haven't bothered to register with the Government. The bureau has now received detailed information from about 2,575 bookies and punch board and numbers operators who applied for the new Federal gambling tax stamp by the Dec. 1 deadline. Their operations are illegal under most State laws. The tax agency is required to keep a public roster of gamblers who get stamps. But officials decided today to go further in cooperation with local police--they will turn over complete copies of all applications. Double-Barreled Attack * This data is supposed to include the names of nil officers and partners in the gambling business, all agents and runners, all places of business from a street corner to a casino, and other information. As Federal and local officers planned to push a double-barreled attack, reports mounted that gamblers are deserting the field in droves to try to make their quick dollars in other lines. They face this dilemma: If they fail to buy the occupational tax stamp they will have Federal agents after them for violating the new tax law; if they do buy a stamp, they could expose themselves to local criminal action. The question of how much information the Revenue Bureau could turn over to local .police arose over the weekend in the eastern Missouri Revenue district. Collector Donald Gunn was reported to have withheld copies of the applications from police! IT'S FUN, BUT IT'S SNO'-FAIR, ARMY SAYS--Chinese Communist photographers had a field day at Panmunjom, as UN correspondents built snowmen to caricature the MP guards at the truce site. A while later, the Army spoiled the fun by ordering the snowmen scuttled, and banning future ones because, as an officer explained, "It dosen't fit the dignity of the occasion." Belgium-Luxembourg: total cas- pending a decision in Washington. ualties were S3, with 18 killed and 65 wounded. Turkey: total 1.920. with killed, 1,170 wounded and missing. Greece: total of 312, with killed and 226 wounded- 458 282 86 135 Officials hero said instructions would go out shortly to make the complete files available. Thailand:. casualties were as of last June. No figures have been made public on Ethiopian losses. VOLS PRESENTED AWARD KNOXVILLE, Tcnn.. Doc. 3 t/P)-- The Father J.

Bucket Brigade Saves Farm House In County Neighbors operating a bucket- brigade saved a rambling farmhouse on the D.olly Harwood property near Doubs, from fire Monday afternoon. Three colored children all under ten years'of age, returning home from school discovered the shingled roof of their rented residence on fire about 4:15 p. m. The children notified the Hume R. Davis family nearby, who immediately phoned for the Independents' county fire-engine. While the Independents were making a quick r u n , the Davis family and other white neighbors assembled and passed buckets o:f water to the attic of the house rented by Ralph Bowens, colored, who with his wife were just getting oil duty from work at the hospital In Frederick. The roof which had caught fire from a defective chimney, firemen said, was well wetted down by the bucket-brigade, when the firemen arrived. Using a booster stream, the Independents extinguished the blaze. Damage was confined to approximately $600, Capt. Melvin Schwearing o£ the fire company estimated.
