I South Korean Frigate Repels Torpedo Boat 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 boats.” 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. Winning Theme Edwin Mauzy (left), of Pocatello, Idaho, en- Pi Assn. Donald R.

Subsidy Attacks Highlight Meeting The 21st annual meeting of the American Cotton Congress con cluded yesterday and was high lighted by a general attack on federal subsidies. 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 million more U. S. households in 1970 as compareed with 1958, that personal incomes after taxes will be up 55 per cent and that a fourth of all U. S. families will enjoy in comes over $8,000.” 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 ment subsidies.” 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.
