The blaze was discovered short- y after midnight in a 2-story struc- ure housing the 'Metro theater, a avern, a candy shop and a lodge hall. Within 20 minutes, it raged out of control, threatening the entire downtown district of this southwestern Wisconsin community of 5,000 population. At 2 a. m. Tire Chief Claire Mellinger said the flames were confined to the destroyed building and other Duildings were saved from all but smoke and water damage. StJoseph Nationalists in Retreat to Southwest Canton, China, W.R)—National- ist troops throughout the Canton- Swatow area reportedly began a huge retreat Wednesday toward southwest China for a final stand on the Asiatic continent. Nationalist governmental functions disintegrated in Canton to the roaring accompaniment of airplanes flying officials to safer havens on the island fortress of Formosa. Military commanders scraped together the last of their defense forces to brace a line 30 miles north of Canton in desperate efforts to hold open a funnel for the retreat westward. The new nationalist line was based on Yuntan, a station on the railroad 30 miles north of Canton. Rail authorities said trains were running no farther north than Yuntan. The withdrawal' corridor apparently was being held open for troops from Swatow, big port some 200 miles eastward which the nationalists appeared to be abandoning without a fight. Private reports indicated the communists have anticipated the nationalist withdrawal into southwest China and were preparing to strike there before the nationalists can dig in. A mobile column of 2,000 communists last reported by-passing nationalist forces on the rail line north of Canton was understood to have swung westward to slice across the nationalist line of retreat from Canton. Mistrial Is Declared in Tucker Case Chicago, '(/P) —Federal Judge Valter J. LaBuy Tuesday de- lared a mistrial in the multimillion dollar Preston Tucker mail raud case. Then he ordered a new rial to start Monday. He granted a defense request hat the week-old trial be called ff because a government witness •ei'erred Monday to the 15 year iriminai record of one of the de- endants. Defense lawyers said the estimony was improper and that t prejudiced the jury. Prosecutors promptly asked for a new trail and the judge agreed. CAUGHT IN WASHINGTON Des Moines, (/P)—The arrest in Everett, Wash., of an escaped inmate of the Eldora state training school for boys v/as reported Wednesday by the state board of control. The youth is Robert Olson 18, of Jewell, Iowa, who walked away from the institution Oct. 2 The original forest area of the United States is estimated at 820 million acres—nearly half of the country's land area.

Phone 1362 PA Iowa's Com Crop Outlook Is Reduced DCS Monies, (!P) — On the basis of Oct. 1 conditions, Iowa's 1949 corn production estimate was reduced to 53 bushels an acre for a total yield of 585,067,000 bushels. The forecast was, of course, made by the government prior to Monday's damaging winds which are expected to materially reduce the 1949 Iowa corn harvest as a result of dropped ears and lodged stalks. The Oct. 1 estimate is down Gl Prisoner Tries Escape by Parachute Nashville, Ark., (fi>) —A daring young soldier named Pvt. Howard A. Shinneman may own the dubious distinction of being the first military prisoner to parachute 'rom a plane. Records on this sort of thing virtually are nil. \ The 23-year-old Clinton, 111., war veteran dived out of a C-82— commonly known as a "flying boxcar"—at about 3,000 feet over southwestern Arkansas Tuesday afternoon. The plane was carrying a crew and 10 military prisoners from Forbes air force base at Topeka, Kans., to Clarksdale air force base, Shreveport, La. The spectacular break was engineered, Shinneman said, to win a $5 bet he doesn't expect to collect—and for a thrill. He said he didn't intend to escape; but had planned to report to Clarksdale on his own. It also (1) earned Shinneman brief freedom—5 hours of trudging 5 miles over unfamiliar and muddy country a hunted man, and (2) created quite a commotion in these parts. Sheriff Arthur E. Hicks of Howard county and a "courthouse friend," as he was identified, captured the young fugitive by following rumors of a man in uniform cutting across fields and roads. The catch was made in Buck Range community, 5J miles southeast of here. Shinneman was brought to the county jail here to await military authorities. ' sharply from a month ago when Iowa's estimated 1949 corn harvest was placed at 56 bushels an acre for a total yield of 618,184,000. Back in July, before corn borer damage and lack of moisture brought declining yield prospects, Iowa's 1949 corn crop had been estimated at 60 bushels an acre for a total production of 662,340,000 bushels. Iowa's Oct. 1 soybean estimate Is for an average of 21 bushels an acre and a total yield of 27,405,000 bushels. This is a slight increase over the September 1 estimate of a 26,752, 000-bushel production. "Effects of nearly. 3 months of moisture deficiency in many areas are now shown by the relatively high percentage of small ears and shallow kernels, both of which measure only low yields," the Iowa Crop and Livestock Reporting Service said. "Corn borer damage and loss has been the most serious by a wide margin to be experienced in Iowa." 2ND LARGEST CORN CROP SEEN Washington, (£*) — The agriculture department Tuesday estimated this year's corn crop at 3,476,980,000 bushels, the 2nd largest of record. This estimate is 48,755,000 bushels less than the 3,525,741,000 forecast a month ago. It compares with last year's record of 3,650,548,000 bushels and with the 10-year (1938-47) average of 2,787,628,000 bushels. The indicated production of other crops compared with a month ago, last year and the 10- year average, respectively, included: Oats 1,321,075,000 bushels for October; 1,314,258,000 a month ago; 1,491,752,000 last year and 1,234,082,000 for the 10-year average. Order Mental Tests for Mason Cityan Danville, 111., (^P)—Judge Walter C. Lindley ordered a mental examination Tuesday for Cleo Trowbridge,- 24, Mason -City, Iowa, charged with driving a stolen car across a state line. The order was issued in district court at the request of Ray Foreman, U. S. district attorney. Trowbridge is awaiting trial on a Dyer Act charge that he stole an a u t o m o bile Thanksgiving day, Nov. 26, 1948, at Concordia, Kans., and drove it to Tuscola, 111. Foreman said Trowbridge insists he is insane. He and Joseph Ferguson of Concordia, Kans., were convicted in Champaign county circuit court last December of robbing Mr. and Mrs. Ray Craig of Ogden, 111., and sentenced to jail. Boone County Fugitive Sought in Adel Area Adel, (U.R)—The search for Kenneth Hulett, 24, Omaha, turned to this afea Wednesday after a man believed to be the Boone county jail escapee fled from Dallas county Sheriff Evan A. Burger. Hulett, awaiting trial on a charge of possessing burglary tools, sawed his way out oi his Boone jail ceii Monday night. Burger picked up a hitch-hiker here Tuesday on the tip of a traveling man who said he became suspicious after giving the man a ride from Des Moines. The sheriff said the man ran away from him as they reached the county courthouse door. Burger fired 3 warning shots, but the man failed to stop. Soybeans for beans 211,198,000 bushels; 204,207,000; 220,201,000 and 148,381,000. Sugar beets 9,882,000 tons; 9,865,000; 9,422,000 and 10,145,000. The production of milk in September was reported at 9,390,000,- 29 lowans Indorse World Government Iowa City, (#•)— Headquarters of United World Federalists of Iowa announced here Wednesday that 29 prominent lowans have sent congress a message indorsing world government. The message was sent to Rep. Kee (D-W. Va.), chairman of the house foreign affairs committee which began hearings Wednesday on a resolution for world federation. The message sent by the lowans said formation of "a federal world government with power to prevent war is now the most urgent task facing America and the world.'' The message described a limited federal world government with power to enforce world laws necessary to maintain peace as "the only logical solution" for preventing World war III.

But even before the storm, the bulletin said, there was "plenty of reason" for farmers to get their corn cribbed as soon as possible. It said ear drop and stalk breakage were widespread last week and lodged stalks were numerous enough in many fields to slow down picker operations. Seven per cent of Iowa's corn acreage had been picked by last Saturday, the bulletin said, compared to 4 per cent on fye same date last year and 3 per cent in 1947. Warm, windy weather continued to reduce the corn's moisture content and "much of the corn is dry enough to store safely," the bulletin said. It said some corn has now been cribbed in all sections of the state. < Soybean combining was reported two-thirds completed by the end of last week. . . 000 pounds compared with 10,546,000,000 in August.
