By the time your correspondent caught any- aing in Clear its name would have been changed to Mud. Another of the grea.t newspapers! of America is under legal attack' by the federal government. The Kansas City Star, Republcan spokesman for the Middle West for two generations, has been* ordered by the Anti-Trust Division |, of the Department of Justice to produce all its advertising and J business records before a federal fr grand jury in July. A similar action was brought against the New Orleans Times- Picayune, a leader of anti-New Deal sentiment in rebellious Louis- -•iana, last winter. In Ihe New Orleans case a protest against adverlising procedure was filed against the Times-Picayune by the Stern family which had recently moved from Philadelphia, Pa., li where it published the New Deal- Philadelphia Record until ils dissolution, .and bought the New Orleans Item. It was shown that the Stern family followed for many years in Philadelphia the same advertising procedure it complained of in New Orleans — and such procedure had been customary among American newspapers tor a generation. Bu,t; between the Sterns' publishing experience in Philadelphia and Orleans had "happened: The federalist; politic: ians, had contrived to bring all " newspapers under regulation of the . interstate commerce code. It was j accomplished not by law or con! stitutional amendment, but by the flat edict of a United States Su:- preme Court wholly appointed by either the late F. D. Roosevelt or Harry Truman. 1 Now the federalists are sending 4| their agents of the Anti-Trusl Division of the Department of Justice into the personal files of the Kansas City Star t — ancient enemy ,: of the Prendergast machine and • Harry Truman. I hold no brief for any of the . big and powerful metropolitan papers. But it should be obvious ; to the humblest citizen that you can't publish a big paper without , big revenues, and that when fed > eral politicians start monkeying P directly with the revenue of a newspaper its ability to print the news and comment freely on it is censored just as effectively as ; if a/federal agent told the editor: ' "You can't write that!" The Kansas City Star case is particularly flagrant because of • that newspaper's historic war against the Kansas City Prender gast machine, whose faithful ser^ vant, Harry Truman, now sits in 9 the White House and personally controls every breath the Depart• ment of Justice draws-'and every ' bite that- it eats. This is an issue close to the \ hearts of Americans.

(NEA Telephoto) Allies Unleash Thrusts on Enemy Line SEOUL, (INS)—Two Allied tank- infantry raiding teams unleashed new thrusts into Communist lines on Koreas West front today after other United Nations troops repulsed an attacking Red battalion in the east. Far behind the lines, sections of the industrial port of Chongjin on the northeast Korean coast lay in smoking ruins left by a daylong shelling from four American warships. / The naval task force, paged by ' the'' giant'' 'Battlesh.|p v lowfT, nudged within 100 miles No Matter What the Lure Is Nowadays the West's Romantic Role Belongs to Homesteaders of By HAL BOYLE MILES CITY, Mont'.' m—The old West is still young enough to have its living .pioneers.

On the ground the Korean summer rains let, up sufficiently to enable two UN raiding columns to push out against the enemy west- northwest of .Yonchon at about Dawn Monday. The twin-pronged Western Front atlack bumped' into resistance by Chinese troops and, at last report, both Allied columns were still engaged in sharp fighting. Fog and intermittent rain continued to restrict the operations of Allied land-based and carrier-borne planes Monday for a second straight day. However, after dusk and in Tuesday's pre-dawn hours American Superforts dropped Ions of radar- aimed bombs on the Koindong rail bridge in extreme central NAWIFT Korea. B-26 light bombers simultaneously pounded Red buildup concentrations just behind tho frontlines. Ground action shifted east Monday night during a break in the wet, foggy weather. There a reinforced North Korean battalion, comprising 750 or more men, hit UN positions along an 8,000-yard- wide sector near heartbreak ridge. The attacks, supported 1,300 rounds of Red artillery and mortar fire, came west and east of the Sataeri Valley and provoked battles that lasted about an hour and a quarter. .The North Koreans struck at about six Allied' positions on both sides of the valley nestling within sight,of Heartbreak Ridge which Allied troops captured last fall after one of the most savage struggles of the war. Allied big guns helped the infantrymen onslaughts in groups repulse the which were Red made up to company size. long batlle for enough water and the ' right kind of weather. The land broke many of the early comers, but many stayed and broke the land. Once a year these pioneers meet in reunion here and talk about old times. They call themselves range riders, bpcause thai is whal Ihey were. And if you refer lo them as cowboys, they will dryly point out that a cowboy is a critter thai inhabils Hollywood. They are a wonderful people, marked by a great calm and 1 dignity. Their hard-won victory shows in their sun-crinkled countenances, and the far reach in their eyes. The earth and sky of endless Montana has been stamped by lime in Iheir faces. Among. Ihosc at the reunion of the range riders this year was Mrs. Susan Haughian, about whom I have written before. Mrs. Hciug hian came here as a sprightly lass from Ireland. Now in her (ibth year, she has 10 children and 24 grandchildren — and she is as sprightly as ever.. Today she and her family own or lease more than 100,000 acres, but there were limes when she and the kids weren't even sure of their groceries. Susan has had a rugged life, full of many troubles. "But I wouldn't change one mo- rrient of my life if I could," she said sloully. Courage has been her armor all the way, and it still is. She is a keen and active business woman, and wants to keep ranching as long as the Lord will allow her. "I'm not going to be a baby sitter for 24 grandchildren," she said, laughing. Susan's success story is matched by Leo Cremer, who is one of America's leading rodeo entrepreneurs as well as one of the state's biggest ranchers. "Mr. Rodeo" came here from Wisconsin in 1911 at the age of 20 with his young bride. He homo- steaded 320 water-short acres. Like Susan and many other determined settlers, Cremer, when faced witn the choice of buying bettor groceries or more acres, chose to gamble on acres. Cremer now has t!2,000 acres of deeded land and 18,000 acres under lease—more than 150 square miles He is a big, graying man- with a gusty laugh, who thinks any day is wasted if he doesn't spend at least Bishop Slated to Die on August?

Toft-Ike Fight Down to Few Score Votes CHICAGO' W>— The Republican National Committee walked out on television cameras today as it took up the} question of deciding contests between rival delegations to next week's convention. The fight between Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio and Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower for the GOP presidential nomination was at the heart of the delegate dispute. Meeting nearly a half-hour late, the 16-member National Committee suddenly shifted its meeting place frorn a third-floor bairoom to u second-floor room at the Conrad Hilton hotel, leaving TV lights blazing and TV cameras with nothing to photograph. i Convention sergeant - at - arms Charles Hacker roared out the announcement of the change of plans. "Cameras and microphones will not be admitted (to the new meeting place) until there is a decision by the committee," no shouted. Other officials said it was possible the National Committee itself would change its mind and allow telecasting. Obviously those running the meet ing didn't want to argue about the television question with the debate itself being televised. Some of Taft's .supporters had been cool to televising the row over delegates, although Taft himself yt-slerday abandoned' his earlier Ho left the inference at a news conference that other states ot the traditionally Democratic S o u t h might split away from their party or even vote for some third candidate. Byrnes, a former Secretary ofj State and Supreme Court Justice.' indlcntcd that Gov. Adlai Stcvon- son of Illinois, a possible "draft" candidate, would not be acceptable because of his position on Civil Rights. Stevenson said yesterday ho favored letting the Individual states enact their own employment practices acts, but that he favored compulsory legislation it they foiled to do anything. Byrnes called such a proposal "sugar coating." Byrnes, a leading supporter of Sen. Richard Russell of Georgia for the Democratic nomination, declared the Democrats' 1048 Civil Rights plan is "entirely unacceptable to me." This endorsed President Truman's advocacy of fode FEPC, nnti-lynching and anti-poll tax legislation. Byrnes said he would be surprised nnd disappointed It Russell doesn't have liOO voles on the first b.-illot at the national convention. The Democratic nomination requires 018 votes. Gov. Howard Pyle, Arizona Re publican, told newsmen that his state's delegation is split 10 tot Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, two for Gen. Dwight D. Eiscnhowei and two neutral, He snid' ho sus peels it will be seven to seven as between Eisenhower nnd Taft on the second ballot. Pyle snid he had found "quit a growing undercurrent" among Republican governors here for Gpn. Douglas MncArlhur us a compromise candidate if there is a Taft-Kfcbnrmwer deadlock. The South Carolina governor's statement placed him in direct opposition to the no-compromise view expressed yesterday by Demo- cralic Gov. G. Mennen Williams of Michigan on Ihe conlroverslal issue.

In all probability the council will take some action to force conser vatlon at n meeting tonight. governor says he isn't a candl- date. Stevenson issued a statement yesterday which was widely interpreted as opening the door for a draft movement, but Byrnes observed, "they don't draft people for tho presidency." Gov. G. Mennen Williams, of Michigan, .here for the National Governors Conference, stirred up the old flgh(. deep in states rights country by indicating a no-compromise position on a question which fostered the Dlxlecrat movement four years ago. Gov. James F. Byrnes of South Carolina, a leader of the anti-Truman wing in the South, was expected to reply at a news conference scheduled for 10 a.m. Williams said Michigan would stand strongly for the 1048 platform on civil .rights.

As a state senator one right with the National Committee. Eisenhower forces strongly demanded that the whole thing bo televised. The first contest to come be- for the committee for decision was that of Florida's IB-member delegation. A "regular" delegation turned up to defend its selection by Florida's State GOP Committee last February. Seventy-two votes at next week's national convention were at stake. In a close race — and this one looks nip-and-tuck — the GOP presidential nomination might well be decided by the committee's recognizing delegates favoring Sen. Robert A. Taft or those backing Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower. The latest Associated Press delegate count shows 475 tor Taft and 409 for Eisenhower. Nomination re- o.uires 6C4. Eisenhower's backers say the national committee is packed ination, lynching and Ihe poll tax. Williams told a news conference yesterday, "Labor wouldn't be satisfied with anything less than the 1848 platform." Williams made it clear he goes further than Gov. Adlal Stevenson of Illinois in support of President Truman's civil rights proposals. Stevenson said he hopes the Democrats can compromise the issue The Illinois governor said he was for state federal fair employment practices commissions with the federal government stepping in only when the states failed to act. .Republican Gov.

In a statement, Truman in effcc scolded Congress for not filvlnj him Ihn stronger powers he usket and lashed particularly at provi sions limiting the Wage Stabilize tion Board to advisory powers in the future. The change as to the Wage Board, Truman said, "destroys the existing system without providing any substitute." In this respect, ho said "thi Congress has opened a dangcroui gap in the mobilization program,' Truman got out a 1200 - wort statement of his views on the nov law. But at no point did he mon tion a provision requesting him tc invoke the Taft-Martley Act in ui effort to end the steel strike. The new law continued for 1 months powers to curb wages prices, and rents and to allocate scarce materials. But sornu of these powers arc whittled down instead of Htrongtl ened a» Truman had asked. He also had requested a two-year ex tension of controls instead of the 10 months congress voted'. Truman signed the bill yesterday and it la now law as the old controls law expired last midnight.
