The Real War Victims
The people of South Korea, accord
ing to newspaper reports from Seoul,,
are looking for a "black winter" and
iTnitad States officers, who have the
foh of looVinir after the welfare of
the civilians in the war-stricken area,
reluctantly admit that "many will
die" before the winter ends.
The South Koreans have suffered
severely from the fighting which has
taken place in their homeland. Many
of them have subsisted on a minimum
diet for months and are without ade
quate clothing for the severe winter
weather. While civilians 'in the North
ern Communist are said to be suffer
ing even more, this is little consols'
tion for the South Koreans.
. Newspaper reporters " also report
.that the average Korean looks to the
future with disillusionment and des
pair. They seem to be losing some
pf their loyalty to the South Korean
regime. While they want peace, they
are terrified at the prospect that UN
troops will evacuate their land and
that they will eventually be' conquer
ed by the Communists, v
Too Much To'
. Two years ago, a two-stage rocket

from New Sands, New Mexico, and
rocket experts assert that such a roc
