One j morning the correspondents watch- j ed a British battalion make a calm and studied counter-attack 'against the enemy 18 miles north nf Ihe city. But when we returned late that afternoon the press camp was breaking up and the order ·went out: "Pack and leave immediately. The army is pulling out tonight." Several correspondents, including Dwight Martin of Time maga- line and myself, decided to remain overnight and watch the .withdrawal. It gave us an eerie feeling as we stood at the entrance of the empty Hotel Chosun, one of the ·largest hostclrics in Korea, and watched flames licking, at the newspaper plant across the street. Fires began to break out all over the city and a smoke pall quickened the twilight. Night fell. "The pavements echoed with the roar of tanks and guns being wheeled out of th rily.

By noon Ihe last Allied unit had trundled out of the smoking cilj and across the two bridges spanning the Han Hivcr. About 2 p. m. U. S. Army engineers blew the final bridge, and one said: "Well, lhat'i the last we'll ever sec of Seoul." Thai was the general feeling among the Allied Army then. Many officers and men then thought we would have to give up Korea entirely and withdraw lo j Japan. And there was bitterness in their going, for while the/'had known little joy in lhal weary peninsula Ihey had no wish to be pushed from it. But they formed « new line and held it. r 'l'oday we hold Seoul again.
