'Mil it! f ITWOl POl Vol. 51 No. 42 n ci SI0H Russians Ask U.S. Withdrawal The United . States and five other countries called on the U.N. Security Council to order the immediate withdrawal of all Chinese troops from North Ko rea. Jacob Malik replied that the Korean conflict can be peace fully settled only if the U.N. and United States withdraw from the battle. His motion to block out the Korean question was defeated 10 to 1. The council voted 9 to 0 to put the problem of the Chinese intervention ahead of the Pales tine case. The United States, France and Britain asked the council to dis cuss the Chinese communist ac tion instead of the Palestine problem. UN Action The security council has in vited a representative from Peip ing to discuss the charges that the Chinese communist forces are deployed for action against Korea and U.N. troops. Warren R. Austin said that the attitude of the council may save the Peiping regime from a grave and tragic miscalculation. The Korean war has resulted in a new farm land boom. Prices have climbed five per cent since last March. Largest increases in land value have been in the corn belt and great plains states. Bridges Destroyed Strong allied air blows de stroyed two border bridges in the supreme effort to choke off the Chinese red troops pouring into Korea. The last of the four big hydro electric plants which supply power to North Korea and parts of Manchuria is now in the hands of the U. S. marines as a result of a five-mile advance on the northwest front. The U. S. superforts struck widely, dumping 10,000 fire bombs on the military center of Pukchin in north central Korea. They loosed 96 tons of fire bombs on the red command post and supply post of Uiju. On the east coast they blasted the port of Chongjin.

U.S. Ag Agent Cites Projects For Mo Basin "The Missouri Basin Develop ment Program," was the topic discussed by Mr. Gladwin E. Young, field representative of the U.S. agriculture department, before a joint meeting of three Ag college departmental clubs Thursday night. "River basins have taken on special significance as units for developing and making effici ent use of our wealth of natural resources," Mr. Young said. He went on to state that the Missouri river basin develop ment program is an outstanding effort in this direction "because of its size and complexity." "The objectives of the pro gram stated simply," he said, "are to create new agricultural and industrial opportunities and to protect those we have." "For the last 10 years the cli mate has been very kind to the people in the Missouri basin," Mr. Young said. But he added that this situation could not last forever. "A stable foundation for ag riculture in a region where drought is en unusually high risk in farming is, of course, a primary target of the program," he said. He also said that the project is designed to contribute to flood control in the basin as well as provide irrigation. Mr. Young emphasized that the individual farmers must carry out conservation on their farms in order to make this project work the best. "Foremost among the contri butions that you will be able to make is to go back to your home communities and become the sci entific farmers, ranchers and homemakers of your generation," he told the group.
