LAMBERT SAID that at one
time during the break-through
American artillerymen threw open
their gun sights and fired point
blank at the Communist tanks,
sighting down the gunbarrels, so
close was the fighting. They later
immobilized their guns and with-
drew when Northern armor over-
ran the positions.
The fighting preceding the
break-through began at 8 a.m.
yesterday and the GI infantry-
men began running low on am-
munition at 3 p.m. at that time
survivors were ordered to evacu-
ate. Some Americans had to
evacuate through a town in
which three parked Communist
tanks kept them under fire.
Others pulled back through a.
less hazardous route.
Meanwhile at advance Ameri-
can headquarters in South Korea

the situation was "a little better

ing pushed forward. The move-

Research for the President's
Committee on Economic Secur-

Altmeyer. T h i s Committee's
work led to enactment of the

THE SAME spokesman said
South Korean troops had offered
only slight resistance to the in-
vaders south of Suwon but had
done better on the front near
Wongju. Lambert reported that
the South Koreans broke and
rushed down from the hills, head-
ing south away from the front,
during the break-through fight.
Lambert said they broke be-
fore an attack by an estimated
40,000 invaders who drove south
despite rain and the fire of
American artillery.

the fall of Inchon, Seoul port, fin-
ally was made at advance Ameri-
