(UP) - An American battleship and a British aircraft carrier
shelled Communist positions on the West Coast today as the Eighth
Army announced more Chinese "volunteers" had entered
The battleship New Jersey and the carrier
Ocean teamed up to hit Communist fortifications shielding the
coastal city of Chinnampo and the North Korean capital of Pyongyang.
Sea shelling of the Red positions lasted
more than three hours as a follow-up of a combined Anglo-American
bomber raid on supply lines and depots south of Pyongyang.
When the "Big J," which shelled
the east coast port of Wonsan, turned its guns on Chinnampo's
fortifications, it marked only the fourth time since the start
of the war that the west coast had been hit by 16" guns.
