Associated Press War Analyst The world's most important gain from the tripartite conference in Moscow, as I see it, is contained in Secretary of State Hull's unemotional statement that the meeting has created better understanding, mutual trust and a spirit of cooperation. There lies the keystone of victory and peace afterward. Upon it must be bum the detailed structure of a nev. world. As this column pointed out be fare the conference met. the great est thing it could achieve would be lo remove the cloud of distrus which has been hanging between the Anglo-American Allies on the one hand and Russia on the other This suspicion even threatened t produce another world war on top of the present one. If we now have achieved a spirit- ot mutual trust, we've broken the back of our problem. While we , must remember that there are difficult issues still to be ironed but, yet disagreements needn't be feared so long as they are friendly. There are times when the Allies will have to agree to disagree. It must have been a grand moment for Cordell Hull when this evangelical worker for world peace was able to tell newspapermen in Moscow that the conference had rendered impossible any isolationism, on the part of the United States, Britain and Russia. "But even so, he was restrained in his language, explaining that the Soviet leaders in turning away from Isolationism have accepted a policy of moderate international cooperation. In short .he didn't encour- , age us to indulge, in wild dreams. ' Agreement that there ought to be a post-war international organization to maintain peace gives hope that at long last we shall have some sort of workable peace-machine such as man has been trying to create for five hundred based on military alliances among 'years. Presumably this will be based on military alliances among Russia,' America, Britain and China, with other nations joining as they wish. I think we should recognize, however, that it's likely to take a long time to achieve the full ideal of a global peace organization. It's good to see China thus early brought into the peace agreement. China, India and other Oriental ' - countries have been suffering their own suspicions of the western ' ' world. They have doubted whether the four freedoms and the Atlantic i 1 Charter were meant for them as :'. well as'for the Occident. -.

Jap Puppet Government of the Philippines Has No Success (Editor's Note — In the following dispatch Raymond P. Cronin, chief of the Associated Press bureau in Manila when the Japanese invaded the Phil-., ippines, gives the initial first hand account of conditions inside Japan's "greater East Asia co-prosperity sphere" since the first American repatriates returned from Japan in July, 1942. Cronin, returning home aboard the exchange ship Gripsholm, went to the Philippines in 1935 after serving in Associated Press bureaus in Pittsburgh and Columbus, Ohio. He covered the growth of the Philippine independence movement, the rise of the Japanese menace, Gen. MacArthur's defense preparations and finally the invasion of the islands.)

Then one particular log was followed in its manufacture through the entire process of being manufactured into an axe handle. First, the log was cut up into blanks of the correct I size. The blanks were then sized out by another operator. After that they were run through a lathe which cut" the handle down to Ihc rough \ shape of the axe handle, i The handles were then sent i through what seemed endless opcr- I ations during which several sancl- ! ing belts and other machines were ; . used. Finally they came out completely polished and waxed, ready to be labelled for shipment. The Kiwanians then were shown the large power plant where shavings are taken through air ducts from the lathes direct to the furnace and converted into the clec- U-icily that runs the plant.

That danger has been very real, and has been strengthened by the British- Indian political crisis which has created much bitterness in India China's sympathies have been decidedly, with the Indians in this matter.; There's blood on the moon for Nazidom in the pledge that Ger mans guilty of war atrocities in oc cupied Jands shall be sent back tc the scenes of their crimes fo punishment by the people of the countries concerned. That sound like a 'Russian proposal, for the j Moscovites have methodically compiled a huge black-list of Germans guilty o.f war crimes and punishments won't be light. The Allied decision to re-establish an independent Austria is said to be having its effect already. News from London is that Austrian soldiers in the German army are reported to be deserting by hundreds, and a leader of the Free Austria movement predicts a "gigantic uprising" of the Austrian people when the Allied armies get near the border of the country. The tripartite conference has left us in the dark as to the future of the Baltic states and other territories in Russia's hands when Hitler attacked the Soviet. Prior to the conference Moscow said that Rus sia's borders were outside the limits of discussion. There in no indication that the Muscovites h^ve changed their view 1 in this matter. The Soviet government newspaper Isvestia says important decisions pointing to the opening of a second front in Eurppe by America and Britain were made at the conference. Right up to the time of the conference the Russians insisted that this front be opened in the sphere of influence. It is quite evident to all that Japan created the so-called repub- .ic to serve her war purposes and aid her in making East Asia safe and self-sufficient for the nese. chief aide in the role of secretary of the interior. Laurel also was chief of the pacification and order drive by which the Ja.panese hoped to rid the islands of widespread guerrilla activilies.

Detroit's recent race riots were in issue in the campaign and Fitzgerald, conceding his defeat, touched on the subject by saying he would continue to strive to "serve the city in Ihe interest of peace, safety and goodwill." The G. '0. P. retained two congressional scats vacated by party members. In New York's 32nd district, Hadwen C. Fuller won over Democrat Norman F. Ward, as successor to the late Rep. Francis D.

For Ihe second time Ihis year Mr. Roosevelt ordered the mines seized Monday night. He gave Ickcs authority to work oul a contract wilh the union, provided the terms follow the war labor board's rules. The UMW asked wage increases of at least $1.50 a day. Most of the operators consented to 88 cents. The WLB suggested $1.12. The fourth strike in the soft coal fields this year meanwhile crippled war industries and prompted Ickes to forbid dealers to deliver coal to any home which has more than a 10-days supply. Deliveries were limited lo one ton. Ickes also diverted 2,000,000, tons of soft coal on trains toward in- dusi.ru:] plants. The secretary urged home owners to share their extra supply with neighbors who need help. Union miners in the field were out;,pol:en in continuing the strike until instructed by UMW headquarters lo do otherwise. John J. Ham-ally, union official at Birm- Lady pokes Testifies in Marigny Trial By E. V. W. JONES Nassau, Bahamas, Nov. 3 —W)— In the silence of a crowded courtroom gripped by the drama ol the momunl, the widow of Sir Harry Onkcs told in tones sometimes hall- ing, sometimes firm today of a family break which followed Alfred De Marigny's marriage to the daughter of Ihe man he now is accused of killing. Even the red-robed, while-wig- gcd chief justice dropped his voice while Lady Eunice Oakes leslificd in the Bahamas supreme court against her dashing, twice-divorced son-in-law, who is charged wilh bludgeoning and burning Ihc multimillionaire Sir Harry lo death last July. "We tried lo make the bcsl of a bad situation," the mourning-clad, woman said, after the handsome defendanl married red - haired Nancy Oakcs, then 18 years old. But Nancy became pregnant even before she recovered from a ncarfatal allack of lyphnid fever, Lady Oakcs related and Sir Harry's resentment caused ill feeling between the baronet and dc Marigny. She said Nancy stuck with -her husband and moved away from her family. Then, and the witness' voice now was firm and cold, de Marigny even wrote to the eldest Oakes' son, Sir Sidney, "(he most diabolical letter a man could write to child of 15 about his parents." Clad in mourning, the widow was dry-eyed as she took the stand She took the oath in a low voice and under prompting of Atlorney General Eric Hallinan began re laling her story of a family tragedy She fanned herself nervously with a palmetto fan as she told of Nancy's marriage to the twice- divorced de Marigny, a man 16 years her senior. "We were frightfully upset," the widow continued, repeating the testimony she first gave at a preliminary hearing for the defendant. From the prisoner's cage, de Marigny stared solemnly at the witness. "I take it, Lady Oakes. that you did not break with Nancy because of the marriage," said the attorney general. "Oh, no. We tried to make the best of a bad situation," explained the former Australian beauty. . Her eyes downcast, she said the younger Oakes children — Nancy has four brothers and sisters — liked do Marigny very much. "He played with them." she said. Then, she continued, de Marigny and Nancy went to Mexico City. Nancy became gravely ill of typhoid fever. "I telephoned Sir Harry and he left from Nassau and I started rom Bar Harbor (Maine)," Lady Oakes continued. She said de Marigny gave two jlood transfusions to his wife. "I gave three, and a donor gave ,wo others," the widow went on.

She was no bigger than Nancy and her figure was almost as good, her hair very nearly as bright. She came down the walk toward him now and slipped her arm in his. "Break any bandage-rolling records today?" "No. I seemed to be all thumbs ..." She sighed. "But Millie serves such marvelous food and far too much.

David followed slowly. * o * WHEN they reached their big, * many-windowed room Milli- ccnt took off her hat and tossed it on the bed. She said, with animation, "Well,, there's news." "What news?" asked Daviq. He I went into the bathroom and spoke presently over the roar of descending water. Milliccnt raised her light, true voice. "Frank Edgar's coming home." "Furlough?" shouted David. Milliccnt shook her head. She said, "Discharged!" There was a brief silence and then David came back inlo the room, in a shabby bathrobe. Ho was toweling his damp hair vigorously. "Injuries?" he inquired. "Yes," reported Millicent. "Elsie Edgar called it perforated eardrum, I think. Would that be •ight? Anyway, he's seen aclion." "Perfecily possible," Ihe doclor •eplied. "Shell concussion might do I. Won't affect his hearing any. Just leaves him open to disease. Reason enough for a discharge. He'd be a liability under most conditions. Perfectly normal otherwise. Nice for Elsie." Millicenl meditated. "It will be nice for Nancy, too. He had quite a crush on her when Ihey were kids." 'Belter let Nancy do her own match-making," he advised. "She hasn't been too good at it so far," said Millicent. She was silling al her mirror, a pink bed jacket around her shoulders, brushing her short, thick hair. "Of course the field is pretty limiled now. I could kill Martha," she added viciously. "Nice for Christopher," said her husband grinning. "Well, that makes two young men." "Two?" "I'm considering an assistant." He told her about it, prowling about tho room and she turned from her dressing table in con- slernalion. You mean he'll live with us?' she asked, incredulously. "Not exactly. He'll take over Mat's apartment. You'll hardly begrudge the boy his meals?" She said, after a minute, "Just as you say, of course. However—it doesn't seem very wise, David." "Wise?" "Because of Nancy. . . ." <To Be Continued) 40 miles across the Ukraine steppes yesterday from captured Pcrckop, norlhweslern gale lo Ihe Crimea, a Moscow communique disclosed.
