Summarizing the effect of the- ·veather on crops during that period, the report said corn made good progress and was growing fast but was too large in some places for further cultivation. Oats prospects were described 3s generally good. The crop has been harvested on most lower Eastern Shore farms and is ripening in Western Maryland. Some soybeans are still being planted. Local showers iast week hampered wheat harvesting 1:1 the mountain areas, but elsewhere the operation is we*! along. However, actual yields and quality are below earlier expectations.

Army ; headquarters said today only 300 American dependents have left Berlin in six months for reasons other than redeplovment or transfer. Officers estimated this amourittx! to about 100 families. There now are 862 families of occupation and military government personnel in Berlin, a total of 1.627 dependents. Army officials said there has been a substantial reduction in the number of dependent families in Berlin but that most departures resulted from reductions in the military government staff and , transfer of military government ' officers to Western Germany. They :ermed "absolutely absurd" a report published in Xew York that 30 to 40 American families sre ''leaving Berlin secfeli*" each day. They said secret departures ·re impossible for all must be boosed through the Army clear- '· ance office. Air travel now is the only means of exit. Western Powers Likely To Make Proposal To Russia In New Note On Crisis In Berlin London.

Washington axithoritie.- expect the note to reiterate the demand «f the Western Powers that Ru.-sia lift the blockade \\hile stressing that there has been no weakening of western determination to remain in Berlin despite the heavy emphasis now being placed on a peaceful settlement. The British official said the tentative draft of the new protest was prepared here and forwarded to Washington for review by top- ranking State Department ofllcials. The note is subject to revision and it may be several riay« before it K delivered to Moscow, he said. This new step to bi eak the blockade mny be delayed pending formation of a new French government and a decision in Paris as to that government's German policy. The content? of the note remained a secret, but the official said "don't be surprised" if it agrees to widen proposed four--power talk 1 ; "n Berlin to cox'er several other German problems. The Russian-licensed German press has implied repeatedly that the Soviets are using the Berlin blockade as a lever to gain four-power talks on all of Germany. Russia and seven of her satellite nations called for such talks at the meeting of · their Foreign Ministers in Warsaw : last month. Air Activity Quickens Air activity quickened in Britain under the impact of the Berlin crisis. The Air Ministry ordered large-scale Royal Air Force exercises over southern England for Sunday in conjunction with a test of Britain's wartime air raid observation service. In central England, some of the 60 American superfortresses stationed at three RAF fields for "training missions" took off yesterday for flights over Britain. Concern over the international situation was further underscored by the decision to adjourn rather than end the present parliament session July 30. The decision makes it possible for Parliament to be called back into action on 24 hours notice. If the session had been ended, six days notice would have been necessary. A meeting of the full cabinet was reported called today to discuss Berlin. us j uu ::i mml Ti Ix'ti'i \ \ i l h p l e n t y of ;-.::;', :»!".-!:( the o i a f t ^;i!S ate vasji'i* : ·«!! v t i - i :- isi the pioce-s of ««*",":'·.;: --v. i t h at i*.*--t t^:-«- :v.',?£v.iC! ^ ·;« n boa:\"i--h.i\- to bo --ct up si'ni-^s !'ic::!b.-: s of the !:.ut bf.i:ii, !;··.- to bt-« appointed And !!icy have to find ofisce spar** to ^-t j:; shop All :h:^ K ospect- *d t bv !i»!-hcil b the c:;d i f Aiuu^t because-- Hurled bitter comment at the ed States." . . ,. . ,, - .. f ,T-TT-T Bureau' denounced Jugoslav noily.

Says Reds Can't Launch A Blitz Berlin. July 22 .-T»--The French- licensed newspaper Der Kurier claims Russia could not launch a blitz against the western zones of Germany even i* she wanted to. '·Dismantled rail l:"nes east of ihe Elbe and deteriorated bridge-s would hold up the advance of motorized columns." the paper asserted. It added that Ihe Russians would be hampered by long communication line?, and quoted German railway men as saying that Sox'iet sup- oly trains stili arc harassed by band^ of guerrillas in the former Polish Ukraine. Der Kurier also quoted returning German war pr^oncrs as raying :rg The Russian people had no ze?t for war and that the Soviet army :n Germanv was "worried about the relatively great number of deserters."

Maj. Gen. Lewis B. HerMiey suggested vaguely that maybe the iirbt men to be drafted will be those 25 years old. ' If the Army v-. ants In get Ihc 25-j car-oids it has to grab thetn fa^t because t'very month a lot of them reach 26 and are thus over the draft age * But the idea of Hershey'y at this moment is very vague indeed. Her- ·shey at this point frankly says he d'?5n't know whether the 2?« year-olds will be called first. In case you have doubts about it. keep this in mind: All war veterans under 26 must register between August 30 and September 18. That doesn't mean they'll be drafted. But they must register. So must all members of the National Guard and reserve units-if they are under 26--unless they're on active duty. Another thing that ha«n't been worked out yet in detail is the matter of deferments. * Some kinds of deferments--such as youths studying for the ministry--are clearly stated in the draft law. But yiere are various problems of deferment still to be worked out and interpreted by selective service. Under the draft law only men over 19 and under 26 can be drafted. When they are drafted, t h e i r Icnclh of service is 21 months. And they can be used anywhere: Inside the United States or overseas But--youths over 13 and under 19. although they must register, cannot be drafted 'til! they've reached their 19th birthday. Vet--thosf* youths over 18 but under 19 can enlist for one year By doing that, they escape the longer 21 months-" service if they wait "til they're 19 and are drafted. And they'll serve their one year inside the United States. They can't be used overseas. But when they get out. they must spend four to six years in a reserve outfit. But--not ail 13 year old youth? can volunteer ar.d be accepted. That's because the draft law limits the number of such youth? who can enlist to 161.000 a year. There are about 1.200.000 youths over IS but under 19. That means those who can't enlist, because the quota of 161.000 has been used up. must wait "til the;, 're !9 and then face bei:ig drafted for 21 months" service instead of the 32 they could have had if they enlisted at 13.
