SEOUL, South Korea OP)— A
- South Korean navy frigate today
repelled a' North Korean torpedo
boat attack which the navy claim
ed was designed to cover an at
tempt to land Red agents.
The navy said the encounter was
over in less than five minutes and
the three attack craft fled into
dense fog when the 1,200-ton fri
gate returned fire. The frigate
suffered no crew casualties or ma-
, terial damage, a spokesman said.
It was not known whether the at-
‘ tackers were hit.
The Reds attacked 15 miles off
the east coast, about two miles
, south of the truce demarcation
line separating North and South
Korea, the navy said,
The navy communique express
ed belief the Communists were
trying to land spies or saboteurs
in South Korea to “take advantage
of the April 26 political upheaval.”
Such naval clashes have taken
place in the past, but it was the
first Red attack since the upris
ing following the March 15 presi-
w dental elections forced the resig-
" nation of President Syngman Rhee.
The navy gave this account:
“Taking. advantage of dense fog,
i three Communist North Korea tor
pedo boats surrounded and closed
in on our PT66 frigate and fired
five torpedoes and a round of 40
millimeter machinegun bullets ip
two attacks. *
“Our vessel immediately coun-
tered with fierce shelling while
zigzagging to dodge the torpedoes
and repulsed the three Communist
The navy said it had increased
„ its patrols off both the east and
west coasts to block Red attempts
w to land agents behind the land
frontier patrolled by South Ko-
, Tean and U. N. forces.

Chosen for Convention, Exhibit
The model and drawings for a
208-bed hospital by three fifth

Burris C. Jackson, general chair
man of the congress, who gave
the keynote address Monday morn
ing noted that, “A leading adver
tising agency predicts possibly 12

personal incomes after taxes will
be up 55 per cent and that a fourth

Musn’t Be Restricted
He declared that “the cotton in
dustry can realize its share of this
market provided the industry is
not unduly restricted.”
William Rhea Blake, executive
vice-president of the National Cot
ton Congress, noted in the after
noon session Monday that “the
cotton industry cannot afford to
have its future rest on the ‘risky,
precarious foundation’ of govern
Can Be Lost
“Any foundation of competitive
strength based on subsidies could
be swept out from under us at al
most any time,” he added.
Along with an adequate build
up in research, Blake stressed the
necessity for greatly strengthen
ing sales promotion programs for
cotton at home and abroad and
for finding a sensible answer to
the textile import program.
Blake’s report on the demand
for U. S. cotton was encouraging.
Half-Million Bale Increase
“If foreign consumption fulfills
it,promise, and if we can keep for

fast, it’s easy to envision our ex
ports trending up perhaps a half
million bales a year.
