Communist troops attacked
across two-thirds of the Korean
battlefront last night and early
today in the biggest co-ordinated
operation in many months.
They were driven back almost
everywhere, but intense fighting
for three or four minor hills car-
ried on into the daylight hours.
THE CHINESE opened flood-
gates of a reservoir north of the
battleline-for their assault on two
major hills northwest of Chorwon.
Nearly 6,000 Chinese troops
attacked the two peaks in the
wake of the surging waters. But
the river which coursed around
the two hills rose only two feet,
hardly enough to be noticed.
Allied defenders, fighting with
grenades, fists. and even stones,
drove back the attackers.
AT THE SAME time, .the Reds
punched at the U. S. Marine line
at 13 points on the extreme West-
ern Front near Korangpo and Pan-
munjom. The Communists seized
a new hill north of Korangpo,
