Two armed men were shot
down by White House guards as
they attempted to torce tneir
wav into Blair house, President
Truman's home.
One of the assailants was kill
ed and another escaped in the
melee. Three White House guards
were wounded in a gun battle.
Inside the house at this time was
President Truman.
The assailants, dressed in civ
ilian clothes, approached the two
Blair house entrances, shooting
with German Lugers.
This occurred in the broad day
light Within a matter of sec
onds following the shooting,
Washington police roared up in
squad cars.
Truman Unharmed
Mr. Truman was unharmed but
three White House policemen
were wounded. One of the assail
ants was killed and another ser
iously wounded.
It is suspected that one of them
toad a communist record. Forty
five minutes after the shooting
the president drove to Arlington
cemetery for a ceremony. His
car was filled with secret serv
icemen. Also in Washington, Secretary
of State Acheson said the North
Atlantic treaty nations are agreed
that there shall be no German
national army, German in
dustry or a German general staff.
In the Korean area, American
divisions took over from losing
South Korean troops in three ma
jor sectors of Korea today as
communist ground and air forces
reached a new peak.
The U.S. First marine division, )
the First cavalry and the Seventh
infantry division drove hard
against the communist forces
which had driven ahead in shat-
tered parts of Korea.
At Lake Success the U.N. gen
eral assembly extended Secretary-General
Trygve Lie's term
for three more years. This was
passed despite a soviet bloc
Vote of Confidence
The assembly supported the
U.S. position that Lie should
keep his office as an expression
of confidence by a vote of 45 to
5, for the way he handled the
Korean problem.
The United States and 14 other
nations backed the . resolution
providing for Lie's retention.
Vishinsky told the assembly
that when Russia objected to Lie
is wa6 "the duty of others to re
spect the Soviet view. Otherwise,
the majority would be trampling
the right of the minority."
