The talks were scheduled for Tacoma, Centralia and Vancouver. Wash., and Port- land, Salem, Albany and Eugene, Ore.

The crowd of some that jammed Truman Told Chances Dim In Colorado President Invades State in Quest Of Stevenson Votes By ERNEST B. VACCARO ABOARD TRUMAN TRAIN President Truman was told that the Democrats face an uphill bat- tle in Colorado as he intensified his campaigning today for that state's six electoral votes. Key Democratic officials told reporters they are counting on the President's "give-'em-hell" presen- tation of the issues to trainside crowds not only to stir up interest among the voters but to lay down the issues for candidates within the states. Moving into Colorado last night, Truman told a crowd at Rifle that his present tour is "only the be- ginning" and that a lot more of the Republicans "will be worried before I finish reading the terrible Republican record to the Ameri- can people from one end of the country to the other." Presence Needed Party officials who climbed Appropriations Cut But Tax Boost Is Inevitable City Budget Figures cheered the Civic Ice Arena lustily. Eisenhower beamed.

Such is the shortest way to sum- marize the impression conveyed by the Truman whistle-stop tour thus far. As a political phenome- non, the thing has to be seen to be believed. For nearly a week now, the same remarkable scene has re- peated itself in the little towns of northern Montana and Washington state. At each small depot, there The crowd cheered again when Eisenhower said of Truman's at- tacks against him and the Repub- licans: "You have been conducted through an underworld of imag- inary devils."

"The present administration's an-, swer to further resource develop- he said, "is the valley authority, a kind of super-govern- ment blue-printed in Washington, B. C., and manned from there. You don't need more super gov- ernment." And then he referred to the "whole-hoggers who want a Col- umbia Valley authority, a Brannan Plan, and socialized medicine." Rather than a federal Columbia Valley authority, Eisenhower ar- gued, there should be a "new inter- state body" in which state mem- bers would have equal authority with federal members in working out navigation and flood control programs. Eisenhower jabbed at those he posses making their horses prance on the outskirts; and in the fore- ground, an elaborately costumed high school band or choir. Warm and Affectionate Perhaps the people are good- tempered because the air is bet- ter than all the diamonds on Fifth Avenue, and because this has been a good year. At any rate, the re- sponse is always warm and even affectionate when the brisk and smiling President makes his ap- pearance, looking like an unusual- ly benevolent and successful den- izen of Main Street. Since the Pres- ident announced his decision to re- tire, the people out this way seem to have forgotten whatever they may have held against him in the past. If the crowd reactions mean anything, the crowds now regard Truman as a nice little guy. What the President has said, at Havre, at Cutbank. at Shelby, at Whitefish, and all the other towns along his route, has not varied greatly from what he said in 1948.

Mrs. Mike Holm Challenged on Use of Name ST. PAUL W) Mrs. Mike Holm was under a Supreme Court order to show cause why she should not use the name "Virginia Holm" in her quest for election as secretary of state at the Nov. 4 general elec- tion. The order was issued late Mon- day after Koscie Marsh, Demo- cratic-Farmer-Labor nominee for the post, charged that using the name "Mrs. Mike Holm would give her an undue advantage with voters and cause untold and ir- reparable damage to the affiant." Mrs. Holm, widow of the -late secretary of state, was appointed to succeed her husband by Gover- nor Anderson after winning the Re- publican nomination in the Sept. 9 primary. Marsh, in his affidavit, said he had personally inspected records in the St. Paul city voter regis- tration bureau, where Mrs. Holm had signed herself "Mrs. Virginia Retta Holm." "She is a widow, not a married woman, and consequently has not the right to use her late husband's the affidavit said. The DFL nominee further pointed out that, under an attorney general's opinion, Mrs. Holm is required to sign her legal name, "Virginia to all stale documents re- train at Grand Junction, Colo., this reporter that they on the White Horse posi- Fair 1uiring her signature.

Lansford of Los Angeles said the Allies knew the attack was imminent when the Yokkok river, which circles both hills, began to rise. That meant the Reds had opened the floodgates of Pongnae Reser- voir. But the Allies had prepared for that by fixing rock fords, cable crossings and a helicopter landing strip. Knowing the attack was coming, the Allies brought up fresh troops, tanks and big guns. When the Chinese attacked they were met with a blistering barrage of fire. Between 800 and 900 Reds were killed at White Horse alone. An- other 250 died at Arrowhead Ridge. Associated Press correspondent (Continued on Page 7, Column 3.)

PAUL a score more witnesses remain to be heard after six appeared Monday before the Ramsey County grand jury studying the Stafford King bribery case. King, present state auditor, was himself called to give his version of the bribe he alleges he was offered to withdraw from the Minnesota gubernatorial contest before the Sept. 9 primary. He was beaten for the Republican nomination by Gov. Anderson. In addition to King, those closet- ed with the jury Monday adding: Gideon Seymour, executive editor I "Our economy is a war economy, of the Minneapolis Star and Tri- prosperity is a war prosper- bune; Totten P.

"When the general speaks of our prosperity as being war-born, who can gain comfort except the So- viets, who shout to the world that we have undertaken our defense program, not to insure peace, but! to prevent a depression at home by waging war the Illi- nois governor demanded. He add- ed: "We expect this kind of talk from irresponsibles and isolation- ists, but not from a man who was formerly looked upon as an under- standing leader in world affairs."

The grand jury was told by a St. Paul attorney today about a meet- ing in a St. Paul hotel at which it was suggested to King that he withdraw. Robert Leach said King was ask- ed at that time to quit the primary race and also disclosed that the auditor had agreed to consider the proposal. Asked if any inducements were offered to King for quitting the race, Leach replied: "Heavens, no." Not so, said Stevenson. Instead, he contended that "our high stand- ard of living has been maintained since the Korean outbreak, not be- cause of the defense program but .in spite of it." 1 Stevenson's prepared Saginaw speech was only a preliminary to a major address he has scheduled tonight in Detroit on all phases of the Communist and external.

EISENHOWER Another Potato Shortage Seen By Next Spring WASHINGTON (PI There may be another potato shortage next spring, the Agriculture Depart- ment said today. Basing its outlook on the Sept. 1 crop report, the department said for 1953 as a whole, however, farm- ers probably will produce more potatoes and other fresh market crops than in 1952 if the weather is average or better. It added that supply and demand prospects indicate prices will aver- age slightly below this year's levels. A seasonal drop in potato prices is expected when the 1952 late crop begins to move in volume, the re- port added. Next year's production of truck crops may be larger than this year when unfavorable weather in some areas reduced the yields, causing alternate periods of glut and scarcity and sharp price var- iations, the department said. Because of relatively high prices received for most truck crops in the last two years, the department predicted growers likely will at- tempt to produce at least as large a volume as this year and in that event grower and consumer prices probably will average a little lower than in 1952. The department said prices for canned and frozen vegetables from now until mid-1953 are expected to remain generaEy near present levels. Favorite Projects 'Out the Window' For Time Being By ADOLPH BREMER Republican-Herald City Editor Aldermen adopted a tax budget Monday night that will help boost the 1953 tax bill in Winona about 12 per cent. That is considerably less than the originally proposed tax budget, calling for a 25 per cent hike, and aldermen accomplished the reduc- tion mainly only by using money 'that was appropriated for other purposes in recent years. Out the window in the all-out ef- fort to keep the taxes down in 1953: River terminal construc- tion, In 1949 taxpayers paid for this project: about two years later, half of it went for unbudgeted salary increases. Latsch Island small-boat harbor construction, The sum of was appro- priated in 1949 for harbors, part of which was spent for the East End boat harbor. Athletic Park improve- ment, This was built up in three appropriations, 1950-52. Levee wall repair, S25.000. This was established by suc- cessive appropriations. Storm sewer construction, accumulated similarily. These designated items in the general fund, totaling will be wiped out, one way or another, by the end of the next fiscal year in April, 1954. To arrive at its tax budget the Council did some complicated fig- uring. 1. It took the refund from the Minnesota Disaster Relief Com- mission and the total it hopes to have in its Dike Fund and credited it as a reserve in its tax budget. Actually that money is considered as a payment on the bill for the construction of the Crooked Slough dike, leaving on taxes, so to speak. 2. That left aldermen with the problem of replenishing the general fund for losses resulting from the expenditure of for fighting the April flood. The question: Whether to reappropriate for such future projects as the terminal and small-boat harbor. Aldermen decided they'd kiss their favorite projects goodbye and keep the taxes down. They just wrote the projects off the list of intended improvements by deciding they had spent the money for another purpose: Fight- ing the April flood. The project funds, totaling 000, fall into two categories, ac- cording to the Council's compli- cated budget figuring. That's be- cause aldermen decided that of the in the general fund for storm sewers, should be considered as having been used for the flood fight; the remaining is to be used to make up the impending deficit in the street department budget. At any rate, when aldermen had added, subtracted and multiplied, they found that the tax budget called for appropriations of 448.36 for the Council and its boards. That's the highest in his- tory and a 28 per cent increase over the budget for the current year. In addition, there's a ap- propriation for the Board of Educa- tion funds, to make a grand total of about over a year ago. But taxpayers are concerned about the entire tax bill levied against real and personal property in the city: 1952-53 1953-54 Stite County School City Special at- seisments Salary Increase Principal budget actions by the Council Monday night: Allowed sufficient sums in the various funds to provide up to a a month salary increase per man next May 1.

Discussed the possibility of fi- nancing some improvements next year by a bond issue or long-term certificates of indebtedness, both of which would require action by the Minnesota Legislature. Early in the evening the possibility of a bond issue for dike construction was strongly favored by such al- dermen as First Ward Alderman (Continued on Page 3, Column 4.) BUDGET ;
