editor Earl Hall was back at his desk Satur day after 2 weeks of travel in the south and east as a guest of the department of national defense and as a delegate to the Red Cross national convention in

ad vanced tan too bespoke some ex posure to the sunand a temper ature which approached the 100 degree mark in Georgia and Flori da In an editorial in this issue of the GlobeGazette Mr Hall makes some references to his observa tions and experiences on the fast moving odyssey But a more de tailed narrative will follow later in radio commentaries and per haps an article or two prepared especially for this newspaper Optimism Rises With Korean Report By MAX BOYD tinge of op timism in reports Saturday from Korean combat headquarters took a good deal of the emphasis off earlier indications of a virtual col lapse of the South Korean army Nevertheless the prospect still was for a hard bloody and per haps long campaign for American troops before invading North Ko rean communists are thrown out of the Americanbacked South Two developments served to lighten the somber picture painted by dispatches Friday night 1 Gen Douglas MacArthurs headquarters in Tokyo reported Saturday morning that South Ko rean forces still held Suwon from which U S headquarters had been 2vacuated and its airstrip Con flicting with a report from Penta gon defense headquarters in Wash ington only a little time before the MacArthur announcement said North Korean forces which broke the Han river line were concen trated some 10 miles north of Su won and that advance elements which penetrated to the vicinity of the city apparently were in too small strength to hold 2 The South oKreans own mil tary headquarters reported also hal Suwon was still in their lands and asserted that no North Korean tanks were south of the Han river Defense officials in Washington said their best evaluation of re ports as of 6 a m CST was that communist forces held Suwon but hey emphasized the situation was extremely fluid and subject to rapid change Moines com plete unofficial census returns in dicate Iowa gained about 72000 population in the past 10 years increase is the largest since World war I decade between 1910 and 1920 The figures from all counties except Woodbury indicate the final total will be about 2810000 The 1940 population was 2538268 The district census office at Sioux City reported Woodbury county has 19925 people outside Sioux City The same area had a population of 21263 in 1940 The finalunofficial total for Sioux City itself is not yet ready The most recent estimate is 83500 Woodbury county appears to be in danger of losing its position as the 2nd most populous county in the state If the estimate for Sioux City is correct the coimtys popu lation would total about 103500 The final unofficial total for Linn county was 103725 Scott and Black Hawk counties appear to be in a close race for 4th largest The unofficial figures give Scott county 99600 and Black Hawk 99480 The 10year increase for Black Hawk county was almost 20000 or 245 per cent The overall state gain is slightly more than the increase in the 192030 and 193040 decades but faUs far short of the 191020 fig ure In that 10year span Iowa gained 179244 people Margarine Violations Expected By VINCENT J BURKE United Press Staff Correspondent Washington federal government stopped taxing mar garine Saturday and its a safe bet thousands of restaurants started violating the In repealing the 10cent a pound tax on yellow margarine congress decreed that public eat ing places senving the product must give patrons double notice that it isnt butter theyre eating The restaurants must post a notice in the menu or on the wall saying that margarine is served And the margarine must be served in triangular pats or in a repeal went Into effect at a m There were no federal in spectors on hand to police the res taurants The food and drug administra tion said it wijl send inspectors into the restaurants as soon as congress provides the funds In requesting for that pur pose the agency told congress that surveys indicate perhaps 50 000 of the 525000 public eating places will serve margarine without giving customers the re quired legal notice The agencys inspectors will be trained chemists who can tell quickly whether a restaurants spread for bread is really butter Violators will be prosecuted of ficials said Expect Violators Officials expect to find some vi olators evenin the 15 states where state law bans sale of yellow mar garine These states are Iowa Iowa Minnesota Montana Penn sylvania Southv Dakota Vermont Wisconsin Connecticut Delaware Illinois Michigan New York Ore gon Wyoming and Washington The FDA hitherto has confined its investigations to foods and drugs crossing state lines The new law therefore may bring up a constitutional question about the right of the federal government to regulate the manner in which restaurants can serve margarine which never crossed state lines The argument for federal regula tion is based on congress conten tion that fraudulent substitution of margarine for butter would burden interstate marketing of butter N o r t h K o r e a n C o I urn

whether it becomes law Acting unanimously and under the spur of the Korean war the house Friday approved compro mise legislation to authorize the 70 groups The senate had actad only the day before had broken through southern defenses below Seoul It was a critical situation which might call for the use of infantry For des pite the amazing sci ence in treating fearful weapons of war we havent yet reached the point where footsoldiers can be dispensed with The seriousness of the position is further emphasized by Mr Tru mans authorization for the U S airforce to fly specific military missions into northern Korea where necessary The president also authorized the blockade of the entire Korean coast Moves Bring Hope These moves should tend to al lay your anxiety rather than heighten it They bespeak a vig orous response to the open aggres sion launched on southern Korea by sovietcontrolled North Korea That aggression is part and parcel of the communist drive to take over all Asia This Korean imbroglio is apar ticularly good demonstration of the cuckoointhenest methods employed by communism in furi thering its world revolution Its a perfect example of the bolshevists scheme of getting the other fellow to do their work for them The present dangerous situation grew out of the unwise allied agreement under which Russia as sumed control of northern Korea at the end of the war while Amer ica undertook guardianship of the south This naturally resulted in the establishment in northern Korea of a puppet communist govern ment which claimed to act for all Korea This wasnt recognized by the United Nations and a repub lican government was set up in southern Korea Russian Routine Then things developed accord ing to bolshevist routine Russia proceeded to communize north Korea A red army was created and thoroughly equipped Commu nist agents swarmed into southern Korea and started their task of the government and spreading disaffection Thits the cuckoos egg was de posited in the Korean nest for hatching And now the egg is hashing While Russia sits tight others carry out her program for Northern Gas Hikes Wholesale Price in Area Council Bluffs customers of

invading communists but it wont keep them from get ting military supplies frorh Russia In order ingthe naval ring to be thrown about the embattled penin sula Friday President Truman ap parently had 2 main objectives in mind 1 To prevent the attacking North Koreans from making any more landings on the southern coast and 2 to keep the sea lanes open for the movement o U S troops and supplies from Japan But the blockade probably wil have little effect on the shipmen of any supplies Russia wants to send to the communist troops In the days when Japan con trolled both Manchuria and Korea she tied the road and rail system of the 2 countries together anc angled both in a northerly direc tion toward Russia borders At the time the Japanese were prepar ing for a showdown with the Sovietsin Siberia Good Land Route Thus a fairly good land route exists for shipment of supplies into North Korea from Russian territory The American navy expects to as tight as make the blockade ships can forge it Naval men say that it will not be necessary to steam fighting ships up and down the whole Korean coast They believe the same effect can be achieved by throwing naval cordon across the top of the Yellow Sea between Dairen in Manchuria and the northwes1 Korean port of Heijo Similarly Seishin near the ex treme northeastern tip of Korea could be isolated by a sea block ade from the big Russian base Vladivostok only 75 miles away Asked whether blockading American vessels would operate near Vladivostok a navy official said We believe in the freedom of the seas outside the 3mile limit Air Force May Succeed While the blockade may not lamper soviet shipments to the Korean reds the U S air force may succeed in doing so now that he out of bounds sign has been ifted from the 38th parallel which divides Korea Mr Trumans announcement hat American planes henceforth strike at military targets in he invaders home territory was expected to set off a series of U S ir attacks on North Korean roads nd rail lines on B29s Bomb USv Troops Washington Confused on Reported Capture of Strategic Point By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tokyo a North Ko rean communist column has been hurled back from Suwon by stiffening South Korean defense and apparently nev er actually took that strategic town or its important airstrip quarters indicated Sunday The red forces are concen trated now 10 miles north of and have thrown at least 3 makeshift wooden bridges across the broad Han river 23 miles north of Su won indicating imminence of a heavier thrust A S air fore commu nique said B29 superfortres ses bombed the bridges and railroad yards and antiair craft batteries inside the red held capital city of Seoul Sat urday This sudden reversal of previous accounts of the fast shifting Korean war situation came as American foot sol diers were being poured into far South Korea in a historic airlift They started moving by rail more than 200 miles north to the front but latest word was that none had yet completed the trip comrnumquV that defense forces were holding Su won came at i almost the same time as a Washington defense depart ment announcement that it was lost Smile at Washington Officers at MacArthurs head quarters greeted the Washington annpnucement with silent stailes Curcumtsances of just what hap pened when the reds made aa breakthrough across the Han river and advanced on Suwon Friday night were admit tedly hazy It was theorized in Tokyo that the red advance coupled with the hasty departure of the American field headquarters and South Ko rean officials from Suwon led in telligence officers either in Tokyo or Washington or both to trans late probability into fact Public information officers at headquarters had refused either to confirm or deny however until the mornings communique Even then it quoted undisclosed sources to indicate that the southerners retained Suwon Without detailing exactly what happened MacArthurs communi que said Late reports indicate that Suwon itself and the Suwon airport are being held by South Korean forces was pene The Suwon area trated by advance elements of the communist forces on the night of June 30 but apaprently not in sufficient force to hold their gains Reports direct by telephone from Taejon the temporary South Ko rean capital 73 miles south of Su won had said Saturday that the South Korean defense collapsed at Suwon and the reds were roar ing southward with an armored column Too Pessimistic By Saturday night however the South Korean defense officials stated flatly there are no tanks south of the Han and indi cated their defense had suffered only small breaks on the right flank The MacArthur communique painted a somewhat grimmer pic ture than the latest South Korean report but was not so pessimistic as the previous South Korean ac counts of a major breakthrough by the reds MacArthurs communique said There was some increase in ene my activity south of the Han riv er but not much It intimated that American air forces might be attacking the northerners bridges across the ai rf ht pered both air and naval activitv Saturday y Defying the bad weather air force steadily threw American nfantrymen
