He descrpipbecl the conference prospects of success as "leasonably good."

Hull declared this principle will be the foundation stone upon which the future internalional organiza- Uon will be built Nowhere, he said, has the conception of sovereign equality been j applied more widely in recent years than in the American family of nations. He declared the four nations have thereby "laid the foundation for cooperative effort in the postwar world toward enabling all peace loving nations, large and small, to live in peace and security, to preserve the liberties and rights of civilized existence, and to enjoy expanded opportunities and facilities for economic, social and spiritual programs." Hull said military discussions which took place in Moscow were aimed at closer cooperation. "I am glad to say thai there is now in Moscow a highly compe- ent United States military mission headed by Major General John R. Deane."

Great loads of yuletidc packages are being rushed to the front by truck, mule train and hand to cheer the boys now living in cold foggy weather in ankel-decp mud. It was pouring rain today as we skidded in a jeep along a rough muddy trail to the foot of a mountain near the front line. For some reason this sector of the front was fairly quie! ;>nd the guns were not booming strongly as usual. In the doorway of a barn on an improvised table Pfc. Herman Sumncr, Cranberry, W. Va., carefully wrapped a package. "Sending that one home?" "Naw," he said "I'm wrapping this for the sergeant." Sergeant Thomas Wallace, Walnut, la., held .string in his hand. "I'm sending home bed spreads for the folks," he said, "I have one for mother and another for my wife. I hope they gel there in time." Most of the boys are sending packages home to parents, friends, wives. Tons arc arriving here with each mail delivery. They are taken into the front line with rations and distributed. They ignore the warning "do not open until Chrislmas" and strip off the paper tu get at candy, cigarettes, cakes and other gifts. Private Louis Laudonc, New London, Conn., was feeling gay. "We are selling our presents a month sooner than we expected," he said, "but that's all right by us." Laudone wrapped a package carefully, tucking the paper in lo make neat corners. "I'm sweating one out myself," he said. "I know I've gut one on the way, but it hasn't arrived yet. The boxes are getting here pretty regularly and of course none of the boys wait for Christmas lo open them." Washington, lor Serugham (D-Nev.), whose resolution set off the Senate's current investigation of'liquor supplies, asserted today lhal Iherc is enough whisky in bonded warehouses to provide every American citizen with more than 12 quarts apiene. Asserling Ihe rale of withdrawal from warehouses has dropped by half since last year, Serugham said internal revenue officials told him Ihe bonded slocks sland roughly al 400,000,000 gallons. There is no way of lolling, he ! straight and how much will be | added, how much will be sold blended with neutral spirits and coloring matter for sale under, new brand names. Senator Overtoil (D-La) said if analysis of such blends showed them to be deleterious to pure food ind drug act should be invoked. Overlon, although purely a by- Uander in the investigalion, sug- jcsled additional whisky could be iried loose by cutting in half the n-esent eight-year period in which iquor may be held untaxed in bond, and applying a sliffly gradualed lax for each exlra month il is icld. Serugham and Chairman George of the Senate finance commitlee likewise thought taxes might be the key to the scarcity problem, which the Office of Price Administration said was complicated by a growing "gangster element." OPA officials said they were working secretly on a program de signed to combat hijacking and illegal trafficking in liquor. U.S.-Trained Chinese Win Big Victory By ALBERT RAVENHOUT United Press Staff Correspondent Chungking, Nov. 18 UP— I have jush returned from the front where I watched American-trained Chinese troops win another victory in their battle to clear the way for Ihe new supply route lo China. The Chinese have cul a Japanese water supply route along the Ta- rung river in upper Burma despite the facl lhal the Japs have been fortifying each river crossing and trial junction ahead of the American-trained road builders and fighling desperately until overpowered by the Chinese. There are no large-scale battles on this front. Instead, there are endless patrol fights, ambushes and scouting thrusts', each supported by American bombers and fighter planes which swoop low to rake the Japanese with machine;' gun and cannon fire. ••There are no front lines. Instead there arc fever and snake infested swamps and trails slashed through grass that grows ten feet high. The terrain makes it impossible to rec-1 ognizc friend or foe at a distance of 20 feet. Under such conditions, most fighting must be hand-to- hand. The latest battle which I witnessed was fought with three-fool natives knives and hand grenades it close quarters. : Just behind the,.Chinese' 1 troops are the road builders, facing almost insuperable odds in their own particular fight to hack the road lo in a shaft on the slopes, dug their way out after the slide had passed China through thick bamboo for esls. They use elephants, sappers and bulldozers. Often the bulldoz ers take on slopes so steep they begin to topple over. tha SHERIFF SOLVES CASE La Junta;' Colo. —(/Pr— Sheriff John Armstrong/.? found a safe near the highwayV ''V Investigation jdisclojsed a truck driver casually had tossed the safe from a load he was hauling for a customer.
