pushed northward along a nar rowing front patrols have probed this long flank daily for signs of red strength The jagged northern front has been cut to about 75 miles At the height of the communist spring offensive it was 125 miles long Censoring Heavy Precisely what is happening on the front is hidden by tightening military censorship Few front line dispatches have been permitted to come through in recent days Those few are heavily censored Most recent front line dis patches have been poolers These aredispatches shared by the news agencies Normal practice is for each correspondent to write his own story for his own service reports written by military press increased Discussions of front line action by briefing officers have become vague U S 8th army headquarters said only scattered groups of Chi nese soldiers offered delaying de fense of the former red buildup area around Chorwon and Kumlrwa New Anchor Communists were reported anchoring their new defense line on

parade of the 13th North Iowa Band Festival The reviewing stand for honored guests set up in Central park was packed and so was the sidewalk across Federal avenue as the bands marched and the queens rode by waving to the crowd Overhead welcome flags waved with a background of fleecy clouds in a blue sky ON WAY TO some of the 84 queen contenders of the North Iowa Band Festival City are enroute from headquarters to convertibles waiting to carry them in the parade Heading these fairest of North Iowa and some southern Minnesota beauties is the reigning queen of the day Her Majesty Miss Kay Cayou of left At right is Mrs Robert Reibsamen LaDonna Glieden of Corwith Miss North Iowa of 1949 deputy chief of stafr was testify ing for4he second day at the sen ates MacArthur inquiry Watches Europe Leading up to these statements hehad said he was concerned that He United States may not be able o meet its commitments in Surope or elsewhere if we con tinue to pour our effort into Ko rea He had said Monday he be lieved U S troops should be pulled from Korea He said that at present he fore sees no decisive allied victory in Korea andbelieves the present unfortunatesituation may go on for months And the effort put into Korea Wedemeyer said may leave this country unable to fulfill commit ments of much greater importance to us from i security viewpoint and from an economic viewpoint later on He had spoken earlier of the commitments already made in Europe and said we may have to make commitments elsewhere Mac Uncertain Wedemeyer also testified lHe concerned as the war with Japan ended about what the Russians might do in Manchuria and asked for 7 U S divisions to safeguard that area He said Mac Arthur as far eastern commander turned him down because of un certainty over what his own needs would be in the occupation of Japan 2 In his opinion there would never have been a war in Korea if a UN trusteeship over Man churia had been established as he recommended in 1947 We demeyer called Manchuria now a satellite of the soviet 3 He believes the United States should have helped the Chinese nationalists combat communism in the same way the Greeks were helped with aid and military ad vice right down to the battalion level 4 There is more justification more in his supporting the Chinese nationa lists on Formosa than in support ing Marshal Titos communist but antisoviet regime in Yugo slavia He said Tito has in dicated his determination to ad here to Marxist theory but he has just had his own internal little family quarrel with Stalin 5 He favors an investigation of the socalled China lobby but that such an inquiry also should cover a British lobby and a French lobby and others I think the China lobby has been very inept compared to the lob bies of other countries 6 The Yalta agreement giv ing Russia concessions in Man churia hurt Generalissimo Chiang kai Shek deeply and I felt badly i GlobeGazette photo y Sorlicn David Guderian 3 is thie wrong tize

Live Our Band Festival No 1 MASON Citys pride in the North Iowa Band Festival is large enough to be shared All of the bands which have been participating in it year after year Have a bow and a salute coming Here it is Imitation is the sincerest form of compliment as has been pointed out innumer able times And that leads us to the observation that at least a more nearly a other communities in Iowa and elsewhere have modeled their band festivals after ours Down through the years theyve had their representatives here to see exactly how its done Theres been no subtlety about it Theyve admitted frankly that they want their end product to be like ours Heres hoping that theyre on hand for this 13th annual North Iowa Band Fes tival the greatest in the series Eightynine bands strutted their stuff in that amazing parade Tuesday forenoon To say this was a record number doesnt tell the whole There was an even more pronounced stepup in the quality of the musicianship and marching For an area of learning which a brief 25 years ago was often referred to con temptuously as gingerbread band music has done right well How well was drama tized impressively by that parade as it will also be by other events of the day in cluding the evening climax in Roosevelt stadium A final note of prophecy Values reflected in this great event will persist in these youthful musicians long many another

Kennedy Charges Death by Fear By THOR J JENSEN Clear Lake Fear of letting the McKinley potato case come to trial has caused Secretary Charles Brannan himself to deal the death blow to the potato marketing program Iowas mem ber of the north central potato marketing committee charged Tuesday Brannan already knows that the referendum he called for July 9 to 13 will result in the potato growers voting out the marketing plan said James Kennedy Clear Lake But voting out the marketing Dlan will do away with any need or the injunction granted the U S department of agriculture against Harold McKinley and Sons St Ansgar potato growers Kennedy pointed out Thus there would be no need to bring the matter to trial on the question making the injunction permanent The federal court could dissolve the injunction and evidence col lected by the McKinleys would gather dust Dont Want II There is plenty of evidence that the growers want no more of the government potato controls Ken nedy pointed out At the early spring meetings in Indiana the growers passed resolutions sup porting the McKinleys in their court battle against the controls Wisconsin growers turned over evidence previously collected by their attorneys and sent one of those attorneys to the prehearing conference in Waterloo last month Hollandale Minn grow ersalso passed a resolution sup porting the McKinleys and meet ings of the Ked river valley grow ers voted against marketing order No 60 this spring Fifteen of the 18 members of ihe north central committee met in Minneapolis May 15 Kennedy reported and voted to conduct a registered mail vote on two ques ions 1 Are you in favor of the establishment of a cull regulation effective July 1 1951 A Yes vote by committee members would have retained the commit tee and the expense of the gov ernment bureau the lowan noted 2 Shall order No 60 and the north central potato committee be terminated and dissolved as of June 30 1951 Answer Yes or No Not Informed To date he and several other members of the committee whom ic has contacted have not been in formed of the outcome of that vote Kennedy said Tuesday The answers were to have been mailed efore May 25 to Ralph Headley Minneapolis who was named manager of the north central com mittee on the recommendation of he U S department of agricul ure Neither he nor other members of the committee have ever been contacted about holding the July eferendum Kennedy said even though the original marketing act specifies that such a referendum shall originate from petition by he growers and committee Iowa growers petitioned for a referendum two months ago with out ever receiving any answer from the U S department of ag riculture Kennedy said Order No 60 specifies that any referendum must be held at least 30 days be ore the end
