C Jostiic Pledges Large Buildup Of U.S. Military Force Communist aggressors were warned that the United States is considering using the atomic bomb in the Korean war. A large build up of U.S. armed forces was forecast by the president. Truman charged that the Chinese assault is Russian Inspired and threatens "all human hopes of peace and justice." But he expressed hope that it can be stopped without using the A-bomb. "Wft are fighting in Korea for our own national security and survival," continued the president. He laid down a three point program calling for na- Hot.il unity una determination to meet the challenge of the new communist aggression, The pro gram called for continued work Jn the United Nations; strength ened efforts to help other free nations build their defenses in order to meet the threat of ag gression elsewhere and rapid in crease .of our own military strength CONGRESS DIVIDED ON A-BOMB QUESTION Congress members divided liharply in their reaction to the A-bomb report. Senator Brew ster said, "It's high time." He has been advocating use of the bomb for gome time. Senator Millikln and Senator Young opposed use of the bomb Said Millikln, "That's the most serious weapon that could be used. It should not be used short of dire necessity, and it should not be used impetuously." Brewster gave the opinion that If It would save our troops in the next two weeks it should be used. CHINESE OFFENSIVE SHIFTS TO NORTHEAST In Korea Communist China shifted its offensive to north east Korea and cut off the en tire U. S. First marine division and part of an army division. The reds cut supply roads behind the marines and launched heavy frontal attacks against marine di visions on the west side of the Chosin reservoir. Allied bombers and fighters swept over the communist lines in a constant stream to bomb, strafe and rocket the enemy, Aerial reconnaissance reports f Chinese reinforcements indi cated that they were swarming south from Manchuria. Accord ing to authorities this may mean that the Red forces are regroup ing for a new attack. GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO DISCUSS CRISIS At Lake Success the United States agreed to take the issue of Communist China's aggression to the floor of the UN general assembly today. Russia is ex pected to veto a security coun cil resolution ordering red Chi nese troops out of Korea. Chief U. S. delegate Warren Austin planned to carry the council into a night session, if necessary on the "Quit Korea" order to the Peking government.

Modern wars are battles of total production . . . and they just don't have it (the capacity to produce) like we here in America." These were the words of Earl L. Butz, chairman of the agri cultural economics department at Purdue university. He talked Thursday with some 400 people at the annual Farm and Home festivities on Ag campus. The nationally known econ omist said America's capacity to produce is far more than the Russian system of slave labor. He said that the difference be tween the amount of human ef fort expended in America for a loaf of bread as compared to that in Russia is an example of this. He pointed out that in Amer ica it requires 10 minutes of hu man effort while in Russia it requires one hour and 18 min utes. Some Americans don't know how lucky they are, he said. Agreement Not Asked Dr. Butz said, "I plead not that you agree with me but that you think." What is agriculture to be like in this new war economy? The outlook is for higher prices with a controlled economy, he said. Military expenditures, he said, will triple in the next few years. This will require a new philos ophy of full production, he said. "We need more output on the farms of tomorrow," he said, ;;and with less labor force." This means increased yield and more work per man, he added. Growth Needed Coupled with this increased economic activity of the nation must come sociological and po litical growth, the economist Vol. 51 No. 53 Ms" , ' Sk'' ( I Courtesy Lincoln StAt Journal. DICK IIUTTON Former Husk- er gridder and track star died Thursday morning, Dick Hutton, Ex-Husker Athlete, Dies Dick Hutton, one of the bright er Nebraska football stars in the post war period, died Thursday morning after a long illness. His death was caused by com plications resulting from cancer. He had boon hospitalized inter mittently for some time. During his college days at the University, Hutton was an out standing halfback on the football team from 1946 through 1948. He was the team's leading scorer during the 1948 season. He was also a sprinter on the track teams through out the same period. Honor Graduate - Hutton graduated cum laude from the University in 1949. He received his master's degree in June, 1950. Ho played one season on the Peru State Teachers col lege team before enrolling at the University. Hutton's track activities were cut short during his senior year upon the advice of his physician. Later, however he recovered suf ficiently to return to school. This year, he took a coaching post at Ord high school, but was forced to resign because of his illness. He had been hospitalized since that time. The 26-year-old native of Au burn was married. Game Dedicated At the Iowa State-Nebraska football game this year, Hutton was honored by the dedication of the game in his honor. The var sity team and card section paid tribute to the former Nebraska athlete. Voicing the sentiments of the athletic department, John Bent ley, sports publicity director said: "He was one of the finest kids we ever had here, a high-type student, a sportsman, a great competitor and a fine boy in every respect." Athletic Director Posty Clark, football coach in 1948, was out of town and not available for comment. Country Dancers To Meet Tonight The Ag College Country Danc ers will hold their regular meet ing Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. in the College Activities building. Steve Eberhart is in charge of the program which includes such square dances as "Forward Up Six," "The Farmer," "Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight" and two new dances called "The Seven Step" and "The Step." One said. With the advent of a war economy and the total production that it must bring, the 10 per cent marginal or even submar ginal farmers now still produc ing should be encouraged to mi grate to urban industries, thus allowing utilization of all farm lands in a more economical man ner by the other 90 percent. Another sociology imnrovp- ment sorely needed is a strengthening of our farm or ganizations and thereby their economic thinking, he said. Mr. Butz said that several land programs have been ad vanced in the past several years, each originally desitmprt a a permanent one. He added some what jokingly, "If all the Agri cultural Economists were placed end to end, they would reach no conclusion." Decisive Decisions The job of each and every American who is interested in the farm situation at all, he said, is to make decisive decisions. Do we want high or low price sup ports? "If high," he said, "we must face its Siamese twin, and that is restricted output." , "If under the all powerful public opinion, congress encour ages an era of full production," he said, "its cousin problem, that of consumption, will also confront the thinking Americans." Bulz said the answer is an increas ing population- last year it was 1C millions. "And above all," Butz said, "when confronted by the vari ous agricultural and world plans that are bound to 'come in the next few months, remember the general economy. Say, 'Is it good for America?' first. Then, 'Is it good for labor, industry and ag riculture?'
