'U.P Yugoslavia offered today to make peace with Russia and the cominform on a basis of mutual respect. The offer was made by minister without portfolio Milovan Djilas, influential member of the politburo of Yugoslavia's ruling communist party, in a speech at the opening of the congress of the Yugoslav national committee for peace. Djilas said: "The Yugoslav pepoles and their state organs endeavor and wish that all questions which the governments of east European countries consider as disputed be settled in agreement, in a way that would not infringe on either the prestige of those countries or the sovereignty and equality of Yugoslavia." Wish to Live In Peace "Yugoslavia," he said, "does not threaten any other people and no alien country has nor can have any means and groups in Yugoslavia which might threaten another country." He said Yugoslavia has no secret or public obligations to or agreements with any foreign government or political group, nor does it "harbor any plans which could in any way threaten another country." The cominform, a closed corporation of eastern European communist states dominated by Russia, expelled Yugoslavia in 1948 for refusing to accept dictation from Moscow and instead following its own brand of communism. Since then, Titoism has become synonymous with Trotskyism throughout the communist world to signify treason to Russian communism. New Delhi has broadcast that he The EVENING EXCEPT SUNDAY Farm Homes Destroyed By Tornado Estimated Damage In Oakland Area Placed At $600,000 OAKLAND, July 17 LP) A tornado that lasted a few minutes demolished four farm homes, damaged buildings on a dozen other farms, injured six persons and inflicted damages estimated at "about $600,000," including heavy livestock losses. Cashier Chase Neumann of the Farmers and Merchants National Bank here the damage estimate as residents of Burt and Cuming county picked up after the violent twister which struck Saturday night. County officials met with citizens this morning in an emergency meeting to determine how to help the stricken farmers. No Fatalities There were no fatalities, apparently because most of the families whose homes were hit were in towns for traditional Saturday evening shopping. "It's unbelievable that no one was killed," said Les Carleton of the Oakland Independent. Farms in the path of the twister today looked like battle-ravaged areas twisted tree stumps, piles of debris, hundreds) of dead cattle, junk-filled holes that once were basements, and fields littered with boards and debris. Heavy rains accompanied the storm and new rains fell yesterday afternoon and this morning in the general area. The injured Included five members of the Loren Bundy family. Bundy and hia wife, two children, anoj his father, huddled in a storm cellar as the tornado lifted and crushed their home, spilling debris on them. None were seriously hurt. The only other reported casualty was Mrs. Art Hurrell, who lived on a farm near Craig. She suffered a severe cut. "Wiped Out" Besides the Bundy home, the houses and outbuildings of Roy Willnerd, Hugo Swanson and Bill Weise were "wiped out .- . . just like a mowing machine had swept through," Carleton said. Carleton said that "when you say these houses were flattened . . . you mean flattened, literally." Damage was reported "fairly major" on about 14 other farms. District 13 school house near here was completely destroyed. A separate tornado of less force damaged about six homes Saturday night near Cordova, 90 miles south west of Omaha. Curious motorists clogged county roads around the area yesterday and American Legionnaires and Veterans of Foreign War members from Craig directed traffic. Hundreds drove to the scene despite appeals' to stay away. Clio Packwood, a photographer, reported that the fields around the stricken area are "like a battlefield, only substituting cattle for soldiers." Cattle Killed He said "dead cattle were strewn everywhere you looked . . ." Carleton said on the Bundy farm 40 .head of cattle were grazing on a hillside when the storm hit. He said the terrific force of the tornado lifted the cattle off the ground and dumped them down again several yards away. All of the cattle were killed. Also on the Bundy place, 100 head of hogs were caught in the storm only three survived. Those families whose homes were leveled are living with neighbors, relatives and friends today, trying to figure out how they'll start rebuilding and where they will get assistance. Vernon Zetterman, Burt county Red Cross chairman, said he wired Red Cross headauarters at St. Louis requesting helD. He said he had been informed that a representative of the St. Louis office would be here to look over thei situation. The tornado was described as Burt county's second worst disaster in history, and the worst one ever in the immediate Oakland vicinity. Burt county had its worst storm when a tornado hit Teka-mah in 1930, killing several persons. Even thoug-h there were no fatalities in yesterday's storm here, city officials said the total property damaee was greater even than the Tekamah storm. Hit Saturday The tornado struck about 5:30 Saturday. It started apparently about eight miles west of Craig, cut a mile-wide path through the area and finally blew itself out going toward the Iowa state line. Most of the farm homes hit were empty, but at the Swanson farm, the five Swanson children were at home alone. Four Lincoln girls who happened to be driving by when the twister approached ran to the Swanson home for shelter, helped the children into a storm cellar where they remained during the storm. The Lincoln girls, enroute to Wisconsin for a vacation, were Hazel Jenkins, Katherine Weber, and Oretchen and Winifred Devries. They said later the air pressure in the storm cellar was "terrific." Their auto was badly damaged. Craig telephone exchange mana ger Oscar Bunderson said many telephone lines in the area were knocked out. He said crops were damaged and livestock losses mitrht be high. Bunderson said the tornado cloud "waa Kjo and hlarlr nnd rolled and j twisted." Bae'ily Teileotam COLUMBUS, Budget For County Is Up $50,012 Totals $577,637.50 of Which $213,687 Must Be Raised By Tax. Levy Platte county's budget for the fiscal year which began July 1, compiled and filed by the county board of supervisors late Saturday afternoon, totals $577,637.50, or $50,012.95 higher than last year's, which was $527,624.95. It is estimated that $213,687.35 of the new budget must be raised by the 1950 tax levy, the rest being available rrom balances carried over from last year in the various funds and from other sources such as gasoline tax, motor vehicle fees, etc. Last year the amount raised by general levy was $157,801. That was raised by a levy of 3.6782 mills on the dollar, based on an assessed valuation of $42,903,040. It is estimated that the levy may reach 4.9702 mills this year, based on a valuation of $43,000,000. How. ever, the $43,000,000 figure is incomplete, as it does not include the "specials," such as railroads, terminals and others whose valuations are determined by the state board and have not yet been certified to the county assessor. These items may raise the total valuation sufficiently to lower the mill levy rate. Caused by Floods, Elections Damage done to roads in the county toy the spring floods is chiefly responsible for the substantial increase in the budget. Last year the budget provided $81,000 for the road fund and $54,000 for the road-bragging fund, a total of $135,000. This year, under a new statutory provision, the road and the dragging funds are combined as one road fund. The total provided for it in the new budget is $167,800. Most 'of the increase can be chalked up to the floods, but the board included in the new budget an item of $5,000 for purchase of a gravel pump and loader. The board contemplates possibility of establishing a county-owned gravel pit. Other principal cause of the over-all increase is the fact that the 1950 primary and general elections both are to toe held in the 1950-51 fiscal year, whereas none was held last year. This required a boost of about $12,000 in the general fund. Budget By Funds The new budget provides for the various funds as follows: General, $178,000: bridge, $74,700; road, 167,800; county relief $2,000; poor farm, $3,000; soldiers and sailors relief, $3,900; county fair, $4,000; bindweed, $1,000; 4-H clubs (allocated by the state from race meets in the state) $500; drainage improvement, $1,000; county assistant fund, $6,000; mother's pensions, $1,000;; rural mail route fund (from gasoline revenue under state law) $112,686. Last year's budget for the several funds, in round figures, was: General, $166,000; bridge, $74,000; road (including dragging), $135,-000; county relief, $20,000; poor farm. $1,000; soldiers and sailors, $3,900: :countv fair, $2,000; bindweed, $1,000; 4-H clubs (from races) $500; drainage improvement, $4,000; county assistance fund, $6,-000; mothers pensions, $1,000; rural mail route fund (from gas revenue) $112,285. A new item in this year's general fund budget is $1,500 for washing walls inside the court house. Included in this year's budget for the poor farm is $2,000 for repairs and improvements to be made at the teounty farm.

'THE VOICE OF A FRIENDLY NEBRASKA, MONDAY, JULY I ruman in Taejon Is Abandoned By Americans TOKYO, Tuesday, July 18. HUJ) The main American force has abandoned the strategic city of Taejon, a dispatch from the front said today. The communists are closing in on the city from three sides. Tae jon formerly was the emergency capital of the South Korean gov ernment. Heavy Pressure Gen. Douglas MacArthur's mid night communique did not men tion abandonment of Taejon, but said heavy pressure from two and possibly three communist divisions had forced an American withdrawal in the Taeion-Kongiu-Nonsan triangle. The communique said the communists were paying a high price for the ground they gained and that the American withdrawal was orderly. It added that only two communist tanks had succeed-in crossing to the south bank of the Kum river and that both of them had been destroyed. The news of the abandonment of Taejon came from Gene Symonds. United Press war correspondent who toured the city around o'clock Monday night (5 a. m. CST). He said that technically the Americans still held Taejon, but added: "The only persons in the practically deserted city were some South Korean soldiers whose vehicle had stopped, one or two civilians and about a dozen G.I.'s." I May Be Caught Symonds had reported earlier that some Americans already had left Taejon, and there was some doubt whether the rest could get out before the swiftly closing communist pinchers trapped them. '-. The battered by furiously fighting GI's had fallen back into the City after communist forces, outnumbering them 10 to 1, broke the defense positions along the Kum fiver north of Taejon. 5 Their defense of Tajeon was the stiffest delaying action yet fought In the Korean war. Gen. Douglas MacArthur praised their valor and effectiveness against overwhelming odds. ) Out flanked and threatened witn envelopment, the Americans gave up their airstrip outside Taejon af-ler destroying the four planes left there. Then with the communists slugging into the suburbs they began to fade back along the trunk transport .lines leading to Pusan, the entry port on the southeast coast. Nebraska City Paper Imposing Censorship NEBRASKA CITY, July 17 tP The Nebraska City News-Press says it is imposing voluntary censorship in its handling of Korean war news "for the duration of the emergency." The newspaper said it would not report the departure of troops from American) ports, names or nature of the transports, their destination or the numiber of troops-en route to the combat area. The news-press said it took the action "to help safeguard the lives of American troops moving from the continental United States toward action in Korea." Farmer Is Happy Over Experiment ARAPAHOE. Julv 17 W Farmer Mac Anderson is a happy , "guinea pig," the University of Nebraska reported today. Anderson's farm was the first to recejve irrigation under the Frenchman Cambridge Reclama- ti project- It is being used by the University's agricultural ex tension service, the Reclamation Bureau and other government agencies to demonstrate how dry land may be converted economically and effectively to irrigation. The University reported Anderson took more hay off 55 acres in two cuttings this year than he usually received all year under dry land condition. At Lincoln, the University said four irrigation clinics and demonstrations will be held over the state next month: the annual clinic at Columbus Aug. 3, a dem- ! onstration on the Demonic Merlo 'farm near Oshkosh in Garden Swedish Premier jlssues Protest STOCKHOLM.

CITY" 17, 1950 American positions are overrun y- . 1 A boecial Messaqe Bed tanfes, shrouded by fog and rain, punch, down s main road. Following up the tanks, Red infantry leaps from trucks into battle. Why Yanks Got A Kicking-Around I North Korean troops, undoubtedly binder Russian in IxOreQ instruction, have consistently used a technique of tank warfare that repeatedly smashed the Americans' lines, scattered the defenders like marbles kicked by an angry boy and sent them reeling in retreat. It was successful largely because the Communists outnumbered the Americans and Red armor and artillery were superior to anything opposed to them. These sketches illustrate the three phases of the Communists' tank-spearheaded attack. First the Reds bring up anywhere from 10 to 30 tanks under cover of darkness. They're 40-ton nasties mounting rapid-firing 76 or 88mm. guns capable of smashing a U. S. 105-mm. gun emplacement like a hammer on an egg. The, tanks, assembled behind a ridge if possible, then punch straight through along a main road preferably in foggy or rainy weather, when the American air force is blind. The punch is like a six-inch left hook so sudden the Americans' positions are overrun before they know what is happening. And too late for the air force to strike. Yank officers report: "They split my company before we could get into the fight." And "When the sun came out there were eight of their tanks right in front of us." After the tanks have crashed through, the North Korean infantry leap from trucks and proceed to envelope the Americans. Frequently fog blindfolds the defenders, enabling the infiltrating Communists to infest defense positions. In these early attacks, it was a story of too few with too little against too many with too much. When enough reinforcements in man-power and fire-power can be brought into the fight, the dark page of the Korfean war's introduction can turn to disclose a brighter chapter. Blue Is Slopping Over Again 74 1 p. 61 low this morning 87 Saturday's high 75 Sunday's high 65 Sunday's low .19 inch of rainfall Sunday .05 inch of rainfall today Heavy weekend rains poured new strength into the swollen Blue river and posed new flood threats I in southeastern Nebraska Monday. I Downpours Saturday night that accompanied a tornado in Burt and Cumming counties caused the Blue i to continue to rise. New rains this morning pelted down over the Blue drainage area. J SIXTY-EIGHTH YEAR 4 before Yanks know what hit them The Blue was expected to crest sometime today at Crete at about 20 feet high at mid2 Hha TTy 22 feet. It was nearly 20 feet high at mid-morning and slopping over into lowland areas. At Barnston, near the Kansas border, the river was 13 feet high, well below flood stage. Torrential rains in northern Kansas, the weather bureau reported, had sent the Blue up to 24 8 feet at some points. More than an inch of rain fell this morning at Burwell, Hayes Center and adjoining areas. Showers were general in the state. The Weather Fair, Cool NUMBER 166 Wednesday To Outline Home Front "Problems' 1 1 UMSHTKnTON JulV 17 IP) President Truman will send to Congress Wednesday a special mocuntr. outlining: what the home front must do to assure victory in the Korean war. was revealed today by Congressional leaders after a con- ference won ir. irumau. Indications were that Mr. Truman would announce plans for calling some of the National Guard into federal service xo repi.c regular army divisions sent to the Far East; ask more money to fin-vnn th war: Derhaps ask for'ex- cess profits taxes on corporations; seek anti-inflationary controls on consumer credit; anu some controls to assure that armament plants get sufficient steel without delays. On Radio At Night The President will follow up the message to Congress with a broadcast to the nation at 9:30 u.m. CST Wednesday. It will be carried by all major radio and television networks. White House Secretary Charles G Ross said the message to Congress would be "quite comprehensive, giving the background of the situation, explaining all the steps taken by this government and containing certain legislative recommendations." Ross said the radio address would be "possibly a simplification" of the message to Congress "a speech that everybody will be able to understand." Domestic Problems Reporters asked if the message would contain any "domestic rec-emmendations as opposed to military recommendations." Ross replied that of course it would be concerned with domestic problems, but he would not go into details. It seemed certain that Mr. Truman will ask for more billions In military funds the guesses range as high as $8,000,000,000 but that probably is too high and spell out the needs in industrial and military manpower. The nation eventually may be asked to accept higher taxes and many burdensome wartime controls unless spending and time limits speedily are fixed in the Korean fighting. Controls and taxes may be proposed piecemeal because this is a campaign year. Not In Person Vice President Alben W. Bark-ley said Mr. Truman will not go before Congress In person. Senate Majority Leader Scott Lucas said Congress will act "with all speed" on whatever recommendations the President sends to Capitol Hill. "There is no legislation pending that would hold up action on the Presi dent's recommendations," he said. "We will act immediately on the President's recommendations to implement the military aid needed to meet this crisis." Lucas said the Congressional leaders discussed the message with the President only "in a general way." When reporters asked what type of controls the President would seek, Lucas said, "I do not know if there will be controls." He said that once the President's requests were disposed of "there will be no trouble in reaching agreement between Senate and House leaders on the type of recess wanted." See Military Mobilization As to whether Mr. Truman will ask for "all-out mobilization," Speaker Sam Rayburn said the Presidential message not yet completed will have to speak for itself. With the Korean fighting going against the Americans, the President is expected to request at least partial economic as well as military mobilization. Some of Mr. Truman's advisers are said to be urging that he call for full mobilization of the nation's resources. At the moment, however, the odds seemed to be against that. On the basi3 of the President's record in office, here is what to expect if the Korean breaks con tinue against us: 1. A Presidential request that Congress boost taxes by an overall $400,000,000 or more. 2. That Congress authorize the government to build steel plants and other facilities if private initiative fails to do so. 3. Installment buying and per haps real estate credit controls to close the easy purchase markets. 4. Strict priorities and allocations authority for transportation and key materials. 5. Standby power to impose price ceilings on scarce and vital commodities and wage controls of some kind. - 6. Renewed administration pressure for extension of rent control. 7. Enormous emergency appropriations for national defense.
