By RUSSELI, TOKYO, June 27. (AP)- BRINES -A report that apparently was well founded said American planes tonight would begin bombing all towns captured by north Korean troops and would continue bombing until the northerners have re- Mfrealed back across the 38th parallel. The report that American-manned bombers would take such action was confirmed by usually informed sources. • + The Seoul radio maintained a consistant series of broadcasts saying that American planes will come over south Korea and urging all Koreans to keep up their spirits. The broadcasts also have repeated that a MacArthur field headquarters will be established. , The broadcasts said American troops, too, will join the battle. Col. M. P. EchoLs MacArthur's public information officer, said he knew nothing about th^s. Hut the'apparently well founded report said American planes will begin their bombing runs tonight.

Ship Excalibur Hits Freighter NEW YORK, June 27. (£")—The cruise ship Excalibur, outward bnund with 114 passengers, collided with a freighter in upper New York Bay shortly before noon '-"day and was beached off Brooklyn. The freighter, Columbia, a Danish «hip, caught fire within moments after the crash, but half an hour lalcr the flames were reported under control. A r range me n Is were ma d e to remove the passengers from the Excalibur and return them to Jersey guCity, N.J., the point, from which **the liner sailed. Surface craft rushed to the scone. Tugs towed the Excalibur to shoal water, where she was beached off GDth Street, Brooklyn, the nearest shallow water. firming whether the attacks already have started. Attempts to place a call to Seoul failed. MacArthur's headquarters, mean- white, announced that American embassy and American military advisers have not left Seoul. "'Reports Exaggerated" A brief announcement said that tanks reported in Seoul's 'suburbs "appear Lo have been isolated for- ,ays." -It added "reports of seizure of Seoul,, have been : exaggerated but thirds liiriteraliiTflSS^le due. to ' war hysteria resulting from the unpro- ,vbked north Korean assault." The announcement confirmed that four Russian built north Korean planes had been'shot down by American ma lined', ^fighters over Seoul's Kimpo Airport when they -'Interferred with the evacuation of women and children." . MacArthur's announcement added that "previous reports that the Korean government had left Seoul for the south appear to have been unfounded." It was not clear whether this meant that. President Syiigman Rhee and his key officials were back In Seoul. Two Korean newsmen previously said the cabinet had evacuated and this presumably included Rhee. Other in formation strongly indicated that Rhee had left Seoul to go south. Since it also was believed that U,S. Ambassador John j. Muccio and key members of the military mission had left the.south Korean capita), tonight's official announcement indicated they might be plan- attcnUon to Sid McMath. Thus, the two chief opponents for the governorship followed the now well-set pattern of their respective campaigns. Lnnny is on the second week of an intensive slumping tour of the state in behalf of his candidacy for a third term as governor after retiring voluntarily two years ago. McMath continues a busy schedule of public appearances—none calculated to rio harm to his bid for a -second term bul most of them having no out-and-out political flavor McMath hasn't indicated when— or If—he's going to change his pattern. The Governor spoke yesterday n!

The first report that American planes would bomb northern Korean held cities, was coupled with a report that Muccio would return immediately to Seoul. (Associated Press Correspondent O. H. p.

If Muccio returns to Seoul, this could he coupled with the bombing plans. if they could- stop even if the; should wish," McMath told i cheering audience. "Whether we like It or not thi United States is the only natioi that has the power, the resources— material and human—and th charaler to stop the advance o Communism." .McMath criticized persons h termed -"retrealists." He described these as "person who want to retreat, to withdra\ from the problems around us." He said they're the same type as those who praised "isolationism" before World War Two. Now, he said they oppose the building of a strong defense on ground that it's uneconomical. In a speech at Malvern Laney accused McMath of "spending a lot of highway money on private projects." Facts I.ater He didn't specify any projects or otherwise amplify his statement. "I'll get around to that later," he said. At Arkadelphia last night he repeated an assertion he's made previously that Arkansas schools are facing a ?4,5CO,OW deficit in slate assistance. And, he declared, this is result of McMath-directcd tampering with the Revenue Stabilization Act by the 1049 Legislature. The only reason there hasn't been deficit already is because the state used a surplus left over from Racial Issues Emerge In Georgia Campaign B.T CHARLES F. BARRETT ATLANTA, June 27.

Qucuille insisted he must have tlie Socialists to slmre the responsibilities ot power If lie resinned the premiership. His earlier cabinet lasted 13 months. The Socialists, third strongest party in the national assembly, were members of every cabinet after the liberation until hist February.

Last Saturday they withdrew their support, because Bidault opposed wage Increases for government, workers. The cabinet was forced to quit. An important section of the par- ly led by Secretary-General Guy Mollet opposed participation In a, nc\v coalition regime.

The antl-Coirummist. parlies differ also on the domestic _issues 'of finances, the election li'iws and Catholic schools. Thf: Socialists, however, also have doubts about the west European coal-steel plan of Bidault's Foreign Minister Robert Schumnn.

June 27. lift — i Chairman Murray (D-Tenn) of the 1 House Postoffice and Civil Service Committee said today the House, by overriding z veterans' b cflts bill velo, has Invited new demands for veterans' legislation. The House overrode the veto yesterday by a vote of 213 to 72. In applying it, President Truman described the benclit measure us the equivalent of "an indirect bonus or adjusted service payment In recognition of military service." The bill would gvle pay raises to World War II veterans who cnUr the postal service prior to July I of this year but who were not in the postofffce department when they went Into military service. It would do this by advancing them one pay grade—or 4100 a ycnr — lor each year of military service. Heeds Senate OK The Senate has not yet acted on the veto. If it musters a two-thirds vote and passes the bill again. It will become law despite Ihe President's disapproval. In that event, Murray told newsmen, there undoublcdly will be demands for similar benefits for other veterans in the government service and for those not in the government's employ. "It certainly would seem," he said, "that Congress could not single out only one group of veterans for this special benefit and Ignore the others if Ihey ask for the same consideration.

The House did not debate the bill before voling. Th« Senate deterred action. NRW YORK. June 27. W-The stock market finally touched bottom this afternoon after a two-day plunge.

This is nc-ladle which superior American orcc.s could quickly slop. (Seoul brondcasts said an Anierl- an general would lake command f the "Joint defense operation."
