PAGE TEN BLYTHEV11.LE. (ARK.) COUKTER NEWS U.S. Fight Talk' Gives Business Idea of Future Autumn Breeze Tugs at Korean Cotton Bolls As Allies Rest on Weary Road to Victory By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK, Oct. 19. W/—The President's warning that the United States will fight wherever In the world the Reds try new aggression gives businessmen—and customers —« new Idea today on what may be expected of them in the months and years ahead. To back up such ft policy, businessmen say, American military might will have to be built up beyond anything yet proposed—or the alternative of government borrowing and further upward 'pressure on prices. Cu< in Civilian Goods Seen Industrialists believe a defense program large enough to insure against Red aggression anywhere would also mean further and much more substantial cutbacks in civil- Ian goods. Steps already taken In this direction are bringing walls' today from some sections of business and industry and assurances from others Hint no curbs or rationing is needed In their line of business. Spokesmen for home builders, auto makers, tire makers, milk dealers, oilmen, 'vool dealers, transpor- tation men, credit men are among those discussing today either (he prospects of shortages in their fields or curbs already put into effect, or curbs they fear some one In the government may be contemplating. Home Builders Displeased Home builders charge the government's move to cut back building )>y a third through mortgage regulations Is loo drastic. Some of the directors of Ihe National Association of Home Huilders, meeting in Efouston, say the new rule's will cut back building even more than !he government plans will "ruin" some builders, and spread unemployment through tiie construction industry. Auto dealers—particularly used car lot owners — say curbs on in- stalment buying will force the low- income customers out of the market. Some tire makers charge that the expected curb on use of rubber- designed to cut back monthly consumption from 105,000 tons to between 85.000 and 110,000 tons is unnecessary and unrealistic.

FORCES IN RED KOREA (If)—ll was a quiet "mny afternoon. An autumn breeze tugged at Brawny bolls of cotton In the fields. Dry brown cornstalks crackled like tin. Jeeps chugged lazily along the Dust clouds drifted skyward In :helr wake. It wns one of those brief, bright respites In war— n time for planning the next move. And Hie U. S. Cav- iry Division's Seventh Regiment— unfit since Ihe days of General Custcr—was hatching an attack. 1'lan Outlined Lt. Col. William Harris of San Antonio, Tex,, « slight blonde who walks and talk s softly, outlined the plan. A platoon of tanks carrying Infantry would rumble north to the walled city of Namchonjom and jrovc its defenses. If they were weak the city would be occupied. If they were strong more tanks and men would move norlli. The order w cut to Battalion Commander Lt. Col. Gilmon Huff of Greenville, S. a. a great, rctl- iinired man "AWOli from the medics." whose right arm is in ft sling because of a recent shoulder wound. Abruptly, the compound hummed wl/h activity. Tankers churned their Shermans and Pershings Into position. Impassive Infantrymen clamborcd aboard..The tanks rum- Wed out. Jeeps chugged along behind. ri >c t from the column rose swiftly. In a few minutes the tanks and jee,» were oul of sight. But not out of hearing. In the command post yar, a jeep's radio crackled. The tank liaison officer, Lt. Warren Allen of Ord, Neb., barked into is microphone, "Give me your position." The reply: "Going through py- rujsan, shooting, no return fire." Allen relayed the report to Huff. "What about air on Namchon- jom?" Huff asked. He turned to nnomer jeep. Lt. Jon Robertson of Akron, Ohio, an F-80 pilot on ground liaison duty, outlined the air situation: "P-51s working over the town now and p-BOs comin 1 in." Huff nodded, satislied. "What's The Target" The jels called in. "On station." Robertson's radio crackled. "At 18.000 feet. What's the target?" "Wait a minute," called Robertson, "i can't see you. Come down 51s are working now." a little nnd wait n. minute. The Then he called of the 51s—they can stay In the area longer than the fuel hungry jets. The F-80s went to work. Hashing quick and silvery hi the sun, build- Ing a lower of smoke. Allen's Jeep-radio snapped again. The tanks were outside Namchon- jom and waiting for the air strike on the town. "Tell 'em it's on," Robertson nrl- •Ised Allen, "Tell 'em to look." Huff p.dded. There was silence for a moment. Then Allen's radio crackled again. But there was interference now and the voice was not clear. Ovcr- icad tlie jets streaked south from the target. "The 51s .say the tanks are on :hc outskirts ol the town," report:d Robertson. Allen marked a cross on his map, tfuff was suddenly agitated. "Don't let those airplanes hit thai town and those tanks," he or- ,dered. "Call 'em off," Robertson grinned. "Too much air power." Then he told the gist to move north and hit another town. The 51s "rogered" their okay. The way was clear now for the tanks and cavalrymen to move into Namchonjom—another mllenost on the fled road to Pyongyang. $50,000 to Texas Co//ege PLAINVIEW. Tex.. Oct. 19.
