YUGOSLAVIA (Continued from Page 1) her Communist neighbors. That, the Yugoslavs said, wax nearly one- third of the total incidents since the June, 1948 break with Russia. More significantly, the report said recent border Incidents had changed character. Where they used to be clashes between individual frontier guards, the Yugoslavs said they now often encounter scouting expeditions by strong military par- tics. Russian instructors are reported training increased and re-armed Bulgarian and Homanlan forces. Meantime, ,radlo propaganda appeals from Russia and her satellites for revolt against Tito Increase In number and bitterness. Last June 8, Yugoslav Foreign Minister Edward KardclJ told a Yugoslav parliamentary committee In Belgrade Yugoslavia expects to get arms from tlie west to keep the country from .becoming a "new Ko rea." Shortly thereafter, Col. Gen. Koca Popovic, Tito's Army Chief of Staff, arrived in the United States, openly seeking arms. He made a formal request June 28, presenting his list of what the country's 30- odd divisions need to face the hostile Communist ring nronnd It. Last week, Gen. J. Lawton Collins, VS. Army Chief or Stnll, returned Popovlc's visit, spending two day» with Tito. According to official* who reported the arms agreement Collins smoothed out the big snag In the proposed agreement^-the U. 8. requirement that an American military mission be allowed into Yugoslavia to see that the arms are used satisfactorily to the United States. Tito reportedly had balked at this, arguing that U. S. officers roaming indiscriminately over his country would be used by his Communist enemies to support their propaganda claim that Yugoslavia had become a tool of the west, Collins was said to have assured T'to the mission need not rove at will. Just what arrangements were made were not reported. Gen. John W. Harmony, now U 8. military attache in Rome, was said by informants to have been named as head of the proposec mission. It wns understood Yugoslavia wu" 'get arms aid as a gift, out of the 15,000,000,000 set aside in the recently . approved foreign military nnd economic aid bill for mllitarj help to Europe. Yugoslavia was no specifically named In the bill, but provision was mnde for Preslden Truman to use pnrt of the funds for any nation whose security he deems necessary to this country. The Defense Department announced June 30 that a shipment, of small arms had been sent to Yugoslavia, a token of bigger aid to come. Obituaries JOINS TRUCE TEAM—MaJ.- Gcn. Howard M.
