UN Patrols
Meet Heavy
Red Artillery
Chunchon Area
Probing Repulsed
By The Associated Press
Chinese Communists, throwing
in fresh troops and artillery along
the Korean Front, yesterday re-
pulsed Allied patrols probing de-
fenses of the vital Red base of
Chunchon, Tokyo reported yes-
The Allied offensive ground
ahead less than 20 miles from the
38th parallel. But the Commun-
ists showed every indication of
being ready, after days of retreat,
to stand and fight.
b *
A HEAVILY-censored field dis-
patch said Allied patrols moving
north of captured Hongchon, 15
miles southeast of Chunchon, were
forced to retire.
An intense enemy artillery
barrage also suggested Red de-
termination to hold Chunchon,
their last big base below the
38th parallel.
Around Hongchon, entered
Thursday by the Allies, the last
pocket of "no surrender" Chin-
ese was wiped out yesterday.,
A CENSORSHIP blackout then
was thrown abruptly over Allied
operations. Units smaller than
the Eighth Amy itself could not
be identified.
The UN line stretched tightly
from points north of liberated
Seoul in Western Korea to
Kangnung of the east coast.
Of this 120-mile front, the main
Chinese defense appeared to be
in a 30-mile-wide sector south of
Chunchon in Central Korea.
Chinese Nationalist assertion that!
the Chinese Reds were planning
a big summer offensive in Korea.
A Nationalist Defense Ministry
spokesman said between 12 and
18 Chinese Communist armies
were transferred to Korea recent-
ly and still more are on the way.
This would be 360,000 to 540,000

Britain Asks
UN Halt Near
38th Parallel
LONDON-(P)-Britain has told
America the United Nations should
seek a Korean settlement with
Red China when UN forces stab-
ilize themselves around the 38th
parallel, Western diplomats re-
ported last night.
They said the British suggestion
has been received with some sym-
pathy in Washington, where talks
on the political aspects of the
Korean war take place frm time
to time.
BRITAIN reaffirmed that she
is against the idea of a major UN
thrust into North .Korea, the
sources added.1
That kind of action, her1
spokesmen in Washington have
argued, would expose the UN
forces-with extended lines ofs
supply-to another strong Com-1
munist counter-offensive.
When a stable military line has
been established-either just be-

low or just above the parallel,a
whichever is militarily more ten-
able - Britain has suggested a
cease-fire offer should go to Red
China to open the way for a
political settlement in accordance
with declared UN objectives.

The Committee to Save McGee

night, stating that it would appre-

sized that such efforts should not

Costello Still State Democrats Launch

"Behind angry and embittered
criticism of naturalism, there lies
an actual fear of reality," James
T. Farrell, noted author and critic,
maintained yesterday before an
overflow audience in the Archi-
tecture Auditorium.
"I have been called an embat-
tled naturalist, but it is the cri-
tics themselves who are really em-
battled. They are limiting them-
selves, as is shown in their pole-
mics against horassty in fiction,
and drawing back out of the weal

FARRELL, the author of such
controversial works as Studs Loni-
gan, A World I Never Made, and
The League of Frightened Philis-
tines, pointed out the hostile re-
ception which greeted other auth-
ors of great realistic fiction.
"Critics overreacted to Zola,
to Flaubert, Hemingway, and
Crane. They have consistently
reacted against authors who
ground their writings in reality,
but they read them because
they are drawn to something
that they don't want to face.
"Yet, it is these writers, the na-
turalists, that new generations
turn to, to laugh and weep."

EXPLAINING the illogic of
damning all realists, or all na-
turalists, simply because they are
what they are, Farrell said that

Balks Crime
NEW YORK-(AP)-To avoid ar-
rest, racketeer Frank Costello
walked back into the Senate CrimeI
hearing yesterday.
But he solemnly, stubbornly!
again refused to talk.
The Senate Crime Committee
asked Costello if he had "a
meeting with O'Dwyer in 1942?"
(The reference was to William
O'Dwyer, then Brooklyn District:
Attorney on military leave. O'-
Dwyer, who, later became mayor of
New York, will be questioned Mon-!
THE DAPPER racketeer, who
left his bed to appear, said he:
wasn't answering "until I'm fully
well and able to."
Costello defiantly walked out
on the all-star hearing Thurs-
day, complaining that he was
too ill to testify and was going
home to bed.
He has laryngitis and his voice
yesterday sounded like little more
than a hoarse croak.
THE COMMITTEE treated him
with kid gloves but still got no-
where. So they let him go until
a committee physician can look
him over and see just how sick
he really is. Costello said he was
going back to bed.
Costello's about-face return to
the hearing came in its fifth day
-a day highlighted by state po-
lice testimony that gambling ran
wide open in Saratoga Springs all
through the 1940's.

Colleges Not;
To Speed-Up
Colleges and universities have
not been asked by the Defense De-
partment to accelerate their aca-
demic programs, accqrding to
Robert L. Williams, assistant to
the Provost.
Williams, who serves as a co-
ordinator to keep the University
in touch with national emergency
developments in Washington,
spoke yesterday before a' confer-
ence of Michigan's junior college
faculty representatives.
He also said that the 'ex-
tensive special training pro-
grams, such as ASTP and V-12,
conducted during the last war,
are not yet being considered.
Williams quoted an assistant
secretary of the Army as saying
"the Department of the Army has
no occasion to request the col-
leges and universities to acceler-
ate their academic programs at
this time."
He also said that college en-
rollments may not be reduced as
much as was anticipated a few
months ago. He quoted, a U.S.
