UN Spearheads
Near Pyongyang
Hamhung and Hungnam Captured
As Troops Pound Red Defenses
TOKYO-()-United Nations armored spearheads pounded to
within eight miles of Pyongyang yesterday and were confident they
would smash into the capital of Communist North Korea today.
Organized resistance on the road to the Red capital appeared
ended. The climax to the 15-week-old war seemed near at hand. Unit-
ed States and South Korean columns sped forward on all fronts.
Hundreds of Red troops, ordered to make a death-stand defense
of Pyongyang, downed their arms. Advancing United States columns
sped past huge piles of abandoned supplies, arms and ammunition,
field dispatches said.

COMMUNIST CHIEFTAIN Kim Il Sung and other leaders of his
collapsing Pyongyang government may have fled to the Manchurian
border or to a mountain hideout near it, some high American army
officers and Korean civilian sources believe.
As the massive United Nations breakthrough drive gathered
momentum, the South Korean Capital Division and elements of
r other Republican troops captur-

Although until now he has

Belin said that he would continue

In SL's meeting tonight, Belin

The'letter was written to a GOP
supporter after a conference with
Gov. Dewey in September.

HANLEY SAID there was "no
commitment of any kind" and fin-

"even remotely" when he decided
to run for the Senate-leaving the
gubernatorial field to Gov. Dewey.
"If there was anything crook-
ed about it, I wouldn't have writ-
ten the letter," he said, a trace
of emotion in his voice. "I have
more sense than that."
In talks with Gov. Dewey, Han-
ley said he was pleased to learn
that a state pension was available
to augment his Senate salary if
he were elected.
This solved one problem for him,
Hailey said.
But, Hanley added:
"My 'financial affairs were not
discussed with Dewey either then
or at previous meetings."
