Beachhead Battle In Final Stage AMERICANS PULL BACK TOWARD HUNGNAM WATERFRONT TODAY By EARNEST HOBERECHT U. P. Staff Correspondent TOKYO, Dec. 19—(UP) — The battle of the Hungnam Bfeachhead appeared to be entering its crucial final stage today as the revived North Korean Army for the first time joined the Chinese redsiege forces. The U. S. 3rd Division, apparently now alone defending the beachhead perimeter, fought with its back to the sea to hold open the escape Port of Hungnam against Commu nist “Banzai” attacks. Charging Chinese Reds overran two American outposts just before dawn, but Gl’s rose from their frozen foxnojes and restored the line by daybreak. Big guns of warships offshore, rrom the Batcle ship Missouri to destroyers, joined massed artillery and air fleets in bombarding the enemy. ‘Although the enemy assault had slackened again by noon (10 p. rn Monday EST), front dispatches re ported that North Korean units lor the first time had joined the siege. They were drawn from among 13 reorganized North Korean divisions which Gen._ Douglas MacArthur’s communique’ today reported prob ably totalled 150,000 men. Another 50,000 North Korean conscripts and recruits were believed in training in Manchuria safe from allied air attack. MADE GOOD TIME , .."TJwfie full mpepis have elapsed since the disorganized North Korean army f(ed north from the United Nations perimeter after the Inchon landing and the North Koreans, evidently with obvious- assistance from their allies, have made good ; use of this time in reorganizing their forces," the communique said. Eh h iPill ;: Jf * ■y tm DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER Eisenhower Is Still Seen As Candidate By LYLE C. WILSON U P Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Dec. 19.—(UP)—Gen. Dwight D. Eisen hower’s new military command will not disqualify him from the Republican presidential nomination in 1952. No one is counting him out of politics merely because he was nam ed today’ to be headman of Western Europe Is defense against Commu nism. Since Gov. Thomas E. Dewey struck out in 1948 as Republican Presidential candidate there has been a growing Republican boom for Ike. There is opposition, too. But the Ike-for-President move ment has gone too far to be stopped beore the Republican convention by anyone except the General himself. There is neither established tradi tion nor law against putting a mil itary man in the White House. Under those circumstances the General’s boosters can whoop it up tor him during the next 18 months just as loudly as if he were in civ ilian clothing administering his dut ies as president of Columbia Un iversity. Ike has been a General through out his tenure at the University. He and other five star commanders of World War II were not retired when their time came. The top brass were maintained on the military rolls at full pay and in semi-active status. They were entitled to the services of an aide, a military office and, if desired, military transportation. DISAGREED WITH TRUMAN But the new job will silence Eisenhower politically. Since accept ing the Columbia presidency in 1948 Ike has made speeches which show ed increasingly his disagreement with the Truman administration and Democratic policies. Left wingers were trying to nom inate the General for president or* the Democratic ticket in 1948. They were shocked and angered when they finally found out his views on public questions. An organization called Americans for Democratic Action was booming him for the Democratic nomination in 1948 ADA is made up of-Roose velt New Dealers. During its nation al convention a year ago,denounced Eisenhower as an “advocate of a jungle state.” ADA turned against him ater a speech In whiqji Ike directly at tacked administration spending and its individual security policies. In his European defense post Eisenhower will not be able to make more speeches like that. But he already has caught the Republican ear., Gov. Thomas E. Dewey got in front-of the Eisenhower parade in mid-October. Dewey said he was for Ike for president. He said Ike’s political philosophy was right. Un less, Dewey decides to run himself, the absence ot his candidate in Europe will not make any difference. Dewey admitted In October that he didn’t know whether Ike was a republican. But along with many other Republicans, Dewey said: “He’s Republican enough for me.” TWO ARRESTED Two persons were arrested on charges of public drunkenness Mon- Scott Replies To Doffermyre RALEIGH, Dec. 19 —(UP)—Court officials aren’t supposed to base ac tion on any case on an assumption concerning- what the Governor will do, Gov.

BE A CHARTER RECORD SUBSCRIBER NO. 10 Will Defend Europe Against Reds GEN. EISENHOWER TO TAKE OVER EUROPEAN COMMAND NEXT MONTH By DAYTON MOORE U. P. Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Dec. 19— (UP) President Truman named Gen. Dwight D. Ei senhower today as Supreme Commander of Unif ie d North Atlantic Armed Forces to defend Western Europe against Communist attack. United Press Staff Correspondent Eisenhower, who led the Western Allies to victory over Nazi Germany in World War 11, was the unanimous choice of the military, defense, and diplomatic leaders of the 12 North Atlantic Pack Nations. In designating Eisenhower for the top post, President Truman said his “experience and talents make him uniquely qualified to assume the important responsibilities of this position.” Eisenhower’s appointment follow ed promptly the formal notification by the pact’s foreign and defense ■ ministers that they had completed arrangements at their meeting in Brussels to set up a single armed force under a U. S. Supreme Com mander for the defense of Western Europe. They expressed “earnest hope” that Eisenhower would be designated. Eisenhower’s appointment, al though a certainty for more than three months, came in an atmos phere of extreme urgency resulting from Communist China's aggression in Korea. , Underscoring the danger of new Comfnunist move, in. Europe—Sfi£= retary of State Dean Acheson and Army Secretary Frank Pace warned the other pact nations yesterday that they must make greater efforts to arm themselves to meet the threat of Russian aggression. TO GO NEXT MONTH Eisenhower, who stepped down as Army Chief of Staff in 1948 to be come president of Columbia Uni versity, was expected to go to Europe on his new* assignment next month. Fontainebleau or Versailles, both near Paris, have been mentioned as the site of his Supreme Headquar ters. Fontainebleau has been head quarters for the Western Union High 'Command of Field Viscount Montgomery of Britain, which will be absorbed by Eisenhower’s new command. • ■ In contrast to the great allied fighting force uijder his command in world war 11, General “Ike” will inherit only a paper army—and a big headache over the arming of Germany. The plan, approved by the de fense and foreign ministers after a U. S.-French deadlock over the use of German troops was broken, calls for a fighting force of 55 to 60 divi sions. About one-fifth of the force would be made up of Germans in 5,000 to 6,000-man “combat teams” in num bers equal to 10 to 11 divisions. It will be up to Elsenhower to persuade the West Europeans to ac cept- Germany, their historical en emy, as a comrade in arms and So persuade the Germans, who have insisted on equality, to accept limi ted rearmament to make possible a defense line along the Elbe.
