Ajmm n r o) o)fo On &jo n Vol. 51 No. 5 r; ti. ynit7plan Revealed Stand Against Aggression Approved An attack on west Germany or Berlin, "from any quarter will now. be considered an attack on the United States, Britain and France, the three countries pledged Tuesday. The Big Three foreign minis ters made the announcement fol lowing a week-long conference in New York. The countries have agreed to stand against agression adopted previously in the Atlantic pact. The Rio de Janerio agreement has now been extended to all of Germany not under Russian con trol. Plans for sweeping revision of controls over the German econo my were also announced by the ministers. Agreement Revolutionary The new agreement is the most revolutionary in regard to Ger many since the four victorious World war II nations, including the Soviet Union, decided five years ago at Potsdam to reduce Germany to a powerless, semi- agricultural state. On the Pacific front, U. S. ma rines stormed across the Han river in darkness for their final assault against Seoul, climaxing the surprise landing last week. In Indo-China, a French army communique said Tuesday com munist let Viet-Minh troops newly armed in China were used for the first time in atacking the outpost town on Dong Khe on the Chinese frontier. The army said the town fell Tuesday to the guerrillas after atiitter three-day fight, but that the exact identity of all attackers was not yet known. City Attacked The French communique said that the city was attacked Sept. 16 at dawn by Vilet-Minh units not completely identified, but ex ceding four battalions in strength and surprised by artillery and heavy mortars. Because of the inability to identify completely the attackers, the possibility was left open that Chinese communist troops might have assisted in the fight which left the town in flames. So far there has been no official evi dence of Chinese communist com plicity in the attack. In the United Nations Tuesday India stole Soviet Union's thun der by asking that communist China be given the Chinese seats In the United Nations. Sir Bengal N. Rau introduced the Indian motion after outgoing President Carlos P. Romulo called on the delegates to back up the authority of the United Nations with adequate military power. For the first time at a united Nations meeting the delegates of the 59 nations observed a minute of silent prayer before beginning their tasks. Rent Controls Asked Concerning home front prob lems. Rent Director Tighe E. Woods is asking congress for new authority to keep or impose rent ceilings where needed, and for the first time to put commercial property under rent control. A 45-year-old professional di ver, Charles Delphs, was pulled free from under a steel beam and the mud, sand and darkness of the Mississippi river late Mon day. He calmly announced he'd be back at work Tuesday. He had been trapped in his divers suit for eight hours and 40 minutes. The depth of the muddy river was estimated at 30 feet. President Syngman Rhee of the republic of Korea said Tuesday that the South Koreans will ad vance through North Korea to the Manchurian border. Addresses Meeting He told a mass meeting that the republican army will not stop at the 38th parallel, which di vides North and South Korea, and said he expected the "Uni ted Nations forces will not stop there either." In London aging Winston Churchill issued his bitterest words Tuesday for a political at tack aimed at striking down the labor government on a vote of censure and forcing a quick general election. The tory .thunderer chose vio lent opposition to state owner ship of Britain's steel industry. Physical standards for army and air force enlistments are be ing lowered at once to the level of those fixed for draft induc tees. This was announced Monday by Fifth army headquarters in Chicago.
