The tornado also made heroines of four young women from Lincoln—and left them without a ear to finish a trip home from Vacation in Wisconsin. A tornado and heavy rains, plus local flooding, dealt eastern Nebraska points damaging blows Saturday. At least three persons were injured, but immediate property losses were far under the damage done by last weekend’s floods. Several farm families were left homeless by Saturday's events, and wheat fields ^ 'Soldier Cast Try Threatening weather Saturday night forced cancellation of Straus’ light opera, “The Chocolate Soldier,” which opened for a three-night run Friday night at Pine wood bowl.

Leonard Flansburg, attorney for the Citizens Auditorium Site committee, said Saturday night that he will appear at the Monday session to “insist that the council direct attorneys to file for a rehearing.” * * * THE SUIT involved is the one in which the high court last week handed down a decision ] More on council. Page 3-A forbidding an election on the location of the auditorium. The suit was initiated by a group of six citizens in district court. The district court ruled that there could he an election. The supreme court reversed this. The site committee has circu- ; lated petitions with the aim of forcing an election. Their proposal was to prevent the audi- j torium being built anywhere on 15th street between K and R. * * • “THERE IS nothing left to test in the auditorium site question since the opinion and judgment of the supreme court is binding on the district court.” Deputy City Attorney C. Russell Mattson was of that opinion Saturday after hearing that Jim Peters, a former American legion commander here, has threatened injunction proceedings against the council. THE TORNADO struck near Uehling, in northeastern Dodge county, and to the north and east in neighboring Hurt county, near Oakland and Craig. At least a dozen farms u'ere damaged, and buildings on several Were leveled. Mrs, Art Murrell, who lives six miles southwest of Craig, suffered severe arm cuts as the twister demolished the Ilurrell farm home and outbuildings. The other reported injuries resulted from a less serious buffeting suffered by Mr. and Mrs. Loren Bundy, a farm couple living south of Craig. * * * THE INCIDENT in which the four women from Lincoln played rescue roles occurred west of Craig on the Hugo Swanson farm before it was demolished. The Lincoln women saw the funnel-shaped tornado cloud and drove into the Swanson farm yard . Five Swanson children, ranging from about 6 to 16 years of age, were alone. The young women got them into a storm cave in time to escape the wind which leveled the farm. The car belonging to the women was wrecked. The Lincoln travelers were Katherine Weber, 28, of 1417 So. 15th; Hazel Jenkins, 22, of 1429 N, and Gretchen and Winifred DeVries, the former about 26, the latter about 24, of 110 So. 28th. The Lincoln women were taken to Oakland and planned to spend the night there. ♦ $ ♦ OTHER FARMS on which buildings w'ere reported entirely demolished included those of Roy Will nerd, about three miles south of Oakland, and Swan Wahl- itrom. At Craig, Telephone Lineman Oscar Bunderson said he knew’ of ten or 12 other farms on which some buildings were damaged. Bunderson said power lines and telephone lines were down in the area and that there undoubtedly was considerable damage to crons and livestock. The storm struck about 5:45 pm. and cut a swath about a mile wide. It moved several miles east and north. It was accompanied by heavy rain and hail. TO THE SOUTH and west the skies unloaded heavy rains at numerous points. Fremont, about 25 miles south of the tornado area, had a 4.5 inch rain and people in low areas j there were being alerted Saturday night by the Red Cross. No : flooding of homes had been reported late Saturday night, the Red Cross said. Omaha had nearly an inch and a half oi rain up to 10 p.m. Sat- I urday. * * * ANOTHER TORNADO struck along the bottom lands of the West Blue river, six miles north of Cordova. This twister killed a pony and damaged several j buildings on the Oscar Hoff- gchneider farm. Other farms damaged included those owned by Alvin Card, Chris Braekhorn, Ray Miller, Earnest Nabcr and Elroy Wiese. * * sfc* THERE WERE heavy rains in York and Seward counties Saturday night, too — counties which took great losses last weekend after rains ranging up to 13 or 14 inches. At Beaver Crossing Saturday night’s rain amounted to about 2.25 inches, Night Marshal Henry J. Sehark said. To the west, a 5-inch downpour was reported near McCool Junction; Waco had 1?. inches, with an area two miles southeast of there getting 3,6 inches, according to Fire Chief Erwin Bulgrin, In southern Seward county Milford had about 3 inches of rain. Police Chief Bill Rumler said. ONE STREET in Beaver Crossing was flooded for a while, Sehark said, but the west fork of the Blue river had receded later, he reported. The Blue river was bank full j at Milford, Rumler said, but no flooding was anticipated there. A county road six and a half miles east of Waco also was flooded for a while. Hail damaged crops in several localities in Seward and York counties. A power line was knocked out near Beaver Crossing, and Consumers Public Power district Supt.

President Truman in a directive June 27 ordered the Seventh fleet to protect Formosa from invasion hut requested the nationalists to refrain from air and sea attacks on the mainland. defense lines along the twisting river thru Saturday night and early Sunday. THE NUMBER of reds who slipped across the wide, shallow river in the early morning darkness was not reported.

MY The 82 Y ton Caroline Mars—world's largest operational flying boat— won a dramatic 480-mile flight against disaster over the Pacific Saturday night, arriving at 6:17 p.m. from Honolulu on only two engines. Both were on the right side and one of them was faulty. Her nerve-tingling arrival at Alameda naval air station meant safety for 14 crewmen and four navy passengers who only 80 miles out faced the risk of going down on a Pacific with a five-foot crest. That was at a time when the third engine, put to a strain to j help make up loss of both 3,000 horsepower engines on the , left side began to sputter.

Correspondents at the front said the communists were expected to try to close their pincers on Taejon within the next 24 hours. The communists made major I breakthrus both on the south Korean front north of Taejon and on the American front to the west. The northern arm of the ( pincers attack smashed three to : five miles thru south Korean lines holding the American east flank in the horseshoe bend of the Kum north of Taejon. IN THIS AREA the communists reached within eight to ten miles of Taejon. Pilots reported they already had crossed the Kum river at two points north of Taejon. Pilots skimming over the battlefield in fighter planes said the communists brought Taejon airfield under artillery fire from positions on the north. The airfield is two milfes northeast of Taejon, Bat Eradication Advice Is Simple WASHINGTON. (UP). Rep. Burr P. Harrison (d., Va.) has a constituent who is troubled with bats in his attic. He asked Harrison what could be done about 1 them. The congressman put the problem up to the U.S. fish and wildlife service, which offered this ; suggestion: "Sit up and wait for the little varmints to leave on their nightly hunt. Then slam the door I in their faces. Don’t open the attic door—or window—again until it has been screened.” Top Congress Demos Oppose Wartime Curbs WASHINGTON. (¡P), Demo- j cratic opposition arose in congress Saturday against any action to clamp wartime price- wage and rationing controls on the country as a result of the Korean fighting. Senator George (d., Ga.), who heads the senate finance committee, told a reporter he believes it would be "a very serious error” for the administration to seek cither to impose sweeping controls now or to ask for standby authority to put them into effect later. SENATOR (ONNAEEY id, Tex,), who head the senate foreign relations committee, said he doesn’t believe such controls are : necessary now. Senator Taft (r., O,) already 1 has announced his opposition to granting the president standby powers. The attitude of the democratic senators made it apparent that the administration will have to move slowly on the subject of mandatory controls or face a possible congressional setback. * * * CLOSER SENATE 1 iaison with the war effort was sought Saturday when five republicans asked that daily armed services committee sessions be held to provide facts on the Korean fighting. The five senators, all members of the committee, said the sessions w’ould be used as a basis for defense recommendations to the senate. IT WAS a harrowing experience for those aboard the behemoth of the airways which only recently drew’ nationwide attention by flying 144 men over the slightly longer distance of 2,- 609 miles from Honolulu to Ran Diego, a record load for such an over-water attempt. As the 200-foot wdng-span plane dipped ever lower from an original altitude of 7,000 feet to one of only a scant 1,000, nearing the Golden Gate, it looked like Lt. A. C. Snyder and his men just could not make it. The big plane flew ungainly even tho both pilots pushed against the rudder pedals with all their strength. "You can tell they’re under n hell of a strain,” said operators at the communication station. WHILE 125 MILES out, the Mars was down to the 3,300-foot level and losing altitude slowly but steadily. Then, 80 miles out, a third engine began sputtering. The crew kept ears cocked for a continued roar from engine No. 4. Finally the Mars fluttered in to harbor.

Lawton Collins predicted Saturday that American forces will be able to hold an "extensive bridgehead” in Korea and ultimately throw’ back the commu- j nist forces.

This fellow apparently wasn’t an "eager beaver” in his younger days. For that reason, it’s likely to take an act of congress to get him the 16 days of drill pay he said he has coming from the national guard. The unnamed gentleman showed up at the state adjutant general’s office and wanted his pay. Officials agreed he had served in the national guard. But, they added, he should have collected Iris money when he completed his service—in 1917. Two Are Injured In Traffic Crash Miss June Hamilton, 29, of 1643 O, received a possible fractured ankle Saturday night in a two-car mishap near 20th and O. She was detained at St. Elizabeth hospital for X-rays and treatment.

She was not hospitalized. Police reports said both cars were going east on O at the time of the accident. The Helltg car was following the Smith car, the report showed. U.N. Considers Korea ‘’Lemon’ LAKE SUCCESS. </R). Top- ranking United Nations officials ; are considering seriously formation of a volunteer international légion to throw into the Korean fighting in support of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, it was learned Saturday night. The disclosure came as the U. N. waited for concrete offers of aid from non-communist members in answer to U. N.

After being arrested, Officer Bauer said, the man jumped into his car and sped away. At 18th and G, Bauer said, the run-away driver’s car collided with a car driven by Don R. Pool, 20, of 1237 C.

Officials at the Allison plant, where jet aircraft engines and tank transmissions are produced, Saturday cancelled a tw’o-week shutdown at the request of the army and air force. The plant, a division of General Motors, had been scheduled to close for the first two weeks in August. But E. B. Newill, general manager, said the air force asked cancellation of the shutdown "to accelerate completion of present orders and to have facilities ready to take care of additional orders we believe soon will be forthcoming.” meet the Korean crisis and the broader westem-Russian emergency, it was said, but will not put the country on a full war footing. Final decisions on the precise steps to be taken will be made by Mr. Truman by Tuesday at the latest, some responsible informants said, and the message to congress will go forward immediately thereafter. It will be the president’s first such pronouncement on the crisis which broke upon the world three weeks ago. • * • INFORMATION vital to the final decisions was given the president and other leaders Saturday by Gen. J. Lawton Collins and Gen, Hoyt S. Vandenberg, the army and air force chiefs of staff, who had just returned from Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s headquarters and the Korean ; battlefront. Called to Blair house to hear Collins and Vandenberg report to the president were the following; Secretary of Defense Johnson, Deputy Secretary Stephen Early, the secretaries of the army, navy and air force; Gen, Omar Bradley, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff; and Adm. Forrest P. Sherman, chief of naval opera- Í tions. The session lasted 45 mm\ utes and produced no announce| ment. Secretary Johnson told } newsmen "Nobody will have anything to say. It was principally a report by the twm men who Were over there, that’s alL” IT WAS LEARNED that the buildup of American military power on which tup administra- . Don leaders have b ten planning [/ will cover: 1. Men and weapons needed fo gain the offensive in Korea and roll back the red forces out of southern Korea. 2. Reinforcement of the American military position in the world outside of Korea on the ground that this nation must have power somewhat in line with the total responsibilities it bears. 3. A stepped up program of assistance to the countries of western Europe, This program will depend in large part on their ability to help themselves more extensively than they are now doing under the north Atlantic treaty. AT THE MOMENT, no final decisions have been made on the partial mobilization program, highly placed informants said, but they may be completed even in detail by late Monday. There is speculation among informed officials that the president may tell congress: 1. He needs an increase of several billions of dollars in military appropriations. The figure has not yet been worked out— it w’aited Vandenberg’s and Collins’ return— but it is estimated to range between $2,000,000,000 and $6,000,000.000. 2. He plans to call up between six and nine national guard divisions as well as a number of members of the organized reserve corps and to reactivate two or more regular army divisions. 3. He needs greater mandatory power for placing armaments orders than that contained in the draft law which in general makes acceptance of orders compulsory only by those firms known to bo able to fill the orders without difficulty. 4. Possibly he may also ask or forecast a future request for authority to allocate scarce materials or materials which become scarce in a stepped-up arms production program. These ideas are not firm pending the president’s own final conferences with his leaders. registering last or who has changed his name, must register Enraged Convict Shows to vote.

But Collins said weapons designed to stop the tanks—including American tanks — are being delivered to Korea. Some already are in the hands of U.S. forces. And even more powerful anti-tank weapons soon will be on the way, he hinted. Vandenberg described as erroneous reports he said he had heard that the morale problem was causing concern.
