Ten Communist
Aliens Arrested
While shattered remnants of
the red Korean army were flee
ing frantically toward the moun
tain triangle north of Kanggye,
South Korean forces swept with
in 50 miles or less of the Man
churian border.
It was at Kanggye that the
red chieftain, Kilil Sung, carried
out his guerrilla war against the
Japanese before Russian occupa
tion forces installed him as pre
mier of North Korea after
World War II.
The city is in the center of the
penninsula about 20 miles from
the border.
Three South Korean divisions
were driving for the Manchurian
border to finish the four-month
And while the North Koreans
fled, in Washington the govern
ment announced Monday it has
arrested ten top alien com
munists and is rounding up 76
All Active
The justice department de
scribed all 86 as "very active
communists." The arrests and
roundup are being made under
the authority of the new internal
security law.
The new law gives the attorney
general authority to hold such
aliens in custody for six months
pending their deportation.
And the supreme court also
had something to say Monday
about communists. It agreed to
consider the appeal of 11 com
munist leaders from their year
old conviction on charges of con
spiring to teach and advocate the
overthrow of the government by
The tribunal will start hearing
arguments in the case Monday,
Dec. 4.
Justice Tom Clark did not'take
part in the court's decision to
hear the appeal. He was attorney
general when the 11 were in
dicted. Other news of communists was
reported in Saigon, Indochina.
Attack French
Communist-led Vietminh troops
have begun harassing attacks on
French positions defending Tien
yen, key supply center at the
new 100-mile French frontier de
fense line.
A French military spokesman
said one small French post in
the Tienyen area was attacked
two days ago.
Meanwhile in Washington the
United States court of appeals
Monday affirmed the perjury
conviction of John F. Maragon,
who once had white house con
nections. Maragon, who was a former
friend of the presidential aide,
Maj. Gen. Harry Vaughan, was
convicted last May for having
lied to senate investigators who
were looking into alleged ped
dling of influence in Washington.
On the less serious side of the
news, a writer for the Mexican
news magazine Manana said he
was quite impressed with
