1'W^L.VJl! Early End of War Wilt Leave U.S. 4rms Program Unchanged •ight Vie for Cotton Contest Queen at Cooter By ELTON 0. FAY Ar MlliUty A Hit™ Reporter WASHINGTON, Oct. 6. (Ht— An early rnd of the Korean War may \ make • difference In how the United States deploys Us military force but leave unchanged the program fnr building that force up to • 3,000,000-man strength. All evidence today ported to continuation of the rearmament program, including more manpower, even II the shooting In (lie Far East slop* »oon. Plans reportedly were under serious consideration to boost the Air Force up to 95 to 110 groups. President Truman said last week there miut be no let-up In the defense program. High military officials since then have told Con- grew the program was planned before hostilities started in Korea and that the war triggered It. Moreover, Pentagon spokesmen Mid .today that as far as they knew the calling up of reserves and draftees would go ahead without change, whatever happens tn Korea. A Thornj- Army Froblem But cessation at the Korean war would help jolve an especially thorny problem for the Army. Under the Western European defense project the United States is committed to augmenting Its forces there. The Army has been faced with the dilemma of finding troops for'this purpose, while at the same time meeting the heavy demands of the Korean War. It now has only ten divisions, ol which six are In Korea and one in Germany. To date, army thinking has been along the line that a start on augmenting the European forces could be 'made In one of two ways: by sending a National Guard division (of- which live are now being brought into federal service) or by Bending a "cadre" division. Some high Army officials have looked with coolness upon the idea of using a National Gilard division. They raise questions like this how Jong could a guard unit be kept abroad under non-war conditions? What would happen when the service of draftees sent into the uhtl to build It up (o strength expired? Would complaints of diS' crimination be raised by a state i Its guard division was singled oil SOT a long overseas tour of duty' "Cadre" Division Considered These same officials thought thn ~ perhaps the answer might be the "cadre" division—a nucleus organization which could be filled out with recruits, sent overseas and whipped Into combat shape at a training center in Germany. •"When the Army announced on Tuesday that it' was reorganising Uie .4th division to convert it from & framing to a combat division H waa assumed that this might be the cadre division'destined for European service. But a change In'plans might follow,an early fold-up of the Korean war, releasing some of the six battle-experienced divisions now on duty there for Western European defense buildup. * ' ' No Release I>ate "WhUe there is no'thought In the Pentagon that'the tens of thousands of reserve officers and enlisted men being-called into service now Individually or in units will remain a permanent part of the armed forces, neither is there any clear idea on when they will be released. Generally, the plan Is to hold them in service until new men. and in .many instances new officers, 'can be trained'and fitted into their spots. ' The law itself is a little vague It' says reserves and National Guardsmen can be called up to serve 21 consecutive months (which also Is the term of service under the draft) or such other period as may be authorized by law or unless sooner relieved. COTTON Obituaries (Continued from page 1) and certain on those who exceed (heir allotments," he said. "Otherwise there would be an unfortunate effect on future compliance and the whole control program would be In danger," The program Is designed to keep the supply of cotton as near the anticipated demand as passible. There is as yet no accurate figure on how much ihe government will collect in cotton penalties on this ,'ear's crop. One cotton expert In he department estimated thai ibout 51,000,000 has been collected date, with more to come. Oddly enough, the $1,000,000 or more in penalties on excess cotton come.s In a year when Uie total ootton acreage planted was far be- ,ow the total cotton acreage allotment. That means that while a lot at cotton farmers planted more than their allotted acreage, many more planted less. Cotton farmers were allotted a total of 21.554,000 acres on which to grow upland cotton. The department's July 15 estimates of Ihe former Blythey'tlle Resident*' Son Dies Mrs. C. E.

In addition to his parents, Mr Oliver Is survived by hts wife. Mrs Ruth Parks Oliver and six-year-old son, Gordon. BOOKS harvested was 8 iier cent of acreage to be 921,000 acres— allotment. Allotted Acres Uplanlrri Thus, upwards of 2.500,000 acre* allotted were uplarilcd. He said that a majority of farmers who exceeded their acreage allotments probably live In the newer cotton areas, where the crop can be produced more economically. And department figures show that western states used a greater proportion of their allotment than the southeastern states.
