It said that between 20 and 25 jx-r cent of the corn acreage re- rnalned unplanted June 1, which Is n date, because of wet weather. A short corn crop would force farmers to cut down on the produc- tion of meat animals, milk and pr.ul'ry products. Reduced supplies of these foods would force prices While the department's crop re- port Mill held out hope for a full com acreage, one official said he Is "pretty well alarmed." Harold K, Hill, assistant director of the corn belt region for tho de- partment's production and markct- Inc administration, told a reporter: "The situation looks dark because weather conditions since June 1 have Improved very little In hcavy- prr-duclnc areas of the Midwest." In a crop weather report, the TVnither bureau said frequent rains and wrt fields in the northern por- tion of the country east of the Itockles delayed corn planting last week. It said planting is approach- Ing K "critical date" In the Great Lakes replon and In the northern portion of the Ohio valley, Wheat Crop This year's wheat crop was fore- cast at twice the prewar average. This cstl- m.v.e Is bushels more than last year's record crop and Is about bushels more than was forecast a month ngo. A wheat crop of this size would bf widely retarded as ft blessing. With world production still far ihort of needs, such a crop would eriabln this country to ship more wheat abroad than ever before from a single crop. Wheat exports from the JSMB crop are expected to total about bushels. Some other Important crops bc- rjdes corn have been delayed by wet. cool weather.'

The State department notu re- portedly carries a threat to take the case before the United Nations If necessary. The main proposal for action con- tained in tho protest Is understood to be a request lor a Joint Amcrl- can-Brltlsh-Russlan Investigation.of the situation In Hungary. It was possible that some last- minute changes were made In the text of the note by Secretary of State George C. Marshall, who went over it finally shortly before it was sent out, State department officials declin- ed to detail tho note's proposal im- mediately, but it waa learned that the message on this country's views was sent to Soviet Lieutenant Gen- eral V. P. Svlridov. chairman of the Allied Control commission In Hun- gary, with copies to Moscow and to London. As the document was originally prepared, it accused the Soviets of unjustified Interference In the In- ternal affairs of Hungary and of violating the Yalta agreement.

The planu was en routo irom Buenos to Europe, Pilot Wills Possessions to Navy Buddy La a human block- buster, Gordon Schultz, 22, deliber- ately power-dived a borrowed plane Into his father's tavern-restaurant last Saturday. Dr. George Rcay. La Crosse coun- ty coroner, ruled Tuesday the for- mer navy aviation cadet committed suicide in the crash which blasted the Hot Pish shop building on the Mormon Coulee road and set it on fire. An Innocent victim of the crash, Harry Schultz, 53, the boy's uncle, was trapped In tho building while asleep and burned to clealh. Father Escapes Death Less than 200 feet away, the boy's father, Orlando, escaped because he had just stepped out of the tavern nto the home. Rcay also held that the death of Harry Schultz was "accidental. Schultz died Saturday night at a La Crosse hospital. Dr. Reay said he had learned from the father that he and his son had had recurring bitter argu- ments ever since the. boy left the navy about two years ago. Asked whether the boy .might have planned to destroy his father as well as himself in the fatal crash. Dr. Reay replied, "It's In the realm of Slated for Hoipltal Dr. .Reay disclosed that, .young. Schultz had been under, a psychia- trist's care since his discharge from tho navy and was soon to be re- moved to a veterans' hospital lor psychiatric care. He said the boy had been unable to work at the same job for more than two months. Dr. Reay said he had learned the boy's mother had died In an Insti- tution about eight years ago. May Have Blamed Dad Asked whether young Schultz might have brooded over the trag- edy and blamed his father for it, Dr. Reay replied: "There's been a lot of rumor to that effect." Dr. Reay revealed that young Schultz had mailed a will from the YMC.A. here shortly before going to the airport to rent the plane. The crash occurred 20 minutes after the takeoff, as Schultz headed his plane toward the tavern-restaurant and power-dived into it from feet. The will, mailed to Jack Dummcr of La Crosse, a wartime navy buddy, read: Left All Belongings leave, will and bequeath to Jack Dummcr all my possessions and belongings." Members of the Dummcr family turned the will over to Schultz's father, who brought it to Dr. Reay. Gordon Schultz is survived by his father and two sisters. The Inquest, ended abruptly with the suicide verdict, disclosed details of the suicide plunge. Schultz. in order to hit the cafe building, skillfully maneuvered the plane to clear several telephone wires along tho main highway. He then headed the craft directly into the main entrance. Reay said. The coroner and District Attorney John S. Coleman canceled an in- quest set for Tuesday. Criminal Cases on U. S.

Prospects Bright For End of Sugar Rationing Invaded Friday The Mongols rode Into Sinkiang Friday, apparently to attempt to force the release of eight Mongolian soldiers held by the Chinese. Two Chinese soldiers were reported killed and others wounded In the Initial assault on Peitashan. Chinese sour- ces said today a number of Mongols were killed when Chinese warplancs ordered to disperse the clash Inad- vertently dropped bombs among the invaders. In the background of the clash, eight Mongolian soldiers had been seized-by a Chinese border patrol. Reliable sources here said the Mongolian commander had issued a 48-hour ultimatum demanding the release of the captives. The Chinese garrison commander ordered the men freed, these sources said, but his order reached Peitashan too late. 200-Mile Invasion Reported The government-sponsored Chin- ese Central News agency correspon- dent continued up to the time he filed tlie story and fighting between Mongol and Chinese ground forces still was under way. One Chinese dlspltch reported a 200-mile inva- sion of Sinkiang. He reiterated earlier Central News reports that four planes bearing Russian markings hnd supported the Mongol invasion and were "bombing and strafing troops and Ills was the only reference to air- craft so marked.

He also promised that Ameri- can resources will be used to promote world recovery by aid- ing those who are willing to make the "maximum contribution to the same cause." Addressing the Canadian parlia- ment in a speech in which ho called ;or completion of the St. Lawrence project, a subject which long has stirred controversy in the United States, the President declared: "We seek a peaceful world, a pros- perous world, a free world, a world of good neighbors, living on terms of equality and mutual respect, as Canada and the United States have ivcd for generations. "We intend to support those who are determined to govern themselves n their own way, nnd who honor the right of others to do likewise.
