Mr. Roosevelt gave reporters yeslcrday a skelchy glimpse of his epochal meetings with Prime Minister Churchill, Premier Stalin and President Chiang Kai-Shek. He promised more detail in a world broadcast at 3 p. m. (EWT) next Friday, the day before Christmas. Whi'jhc doesn't say in that speech will be conlained in a report to Congress later. The president got to Washington at 9:30 a. m,, yesterday, promptly met with congressional leaders,, representalives of Ihe Brilish, Chinese, Russian, Turkish, Iranian and Egyptian governments, and his cabinet. Meeting the press alter this, Mr. Roosevelt, with his usual ilair of the the unexpected, revealed why he moved to the Russian embassy in ^Tehej-fln,„-Iran,, lor -.hijw tallts- with Stalin and Churchill. Stalin, he said, warned him that, there was a Nazi plot afoot againsi all three Allied leaders. By moving, Mr. Roosevelt explained, it was possible for them to .communicate without walking the" streels . because the British embassy was next door to the Russian headquarters. Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt would have been a pretty good Jiaul for any Nazi terrorist, the president observed wryly. He brushed aside any elaboration of the Cairo-Teheran announcements except to say the talks were a success in every way and he hopes that they laid the foundation lor a postwar era of peace lo lasl through the lives of Ihis generalion. The olher leaders feel Ihis way, loo, he said. (More meetings mighl be held, Mr, Roosevelt implied. The way to put it, he said, is Ihat all the leaders are on call. Plunging into home front mailers, the president said he had reminded government heads Ihat their employes may have Christmas off, plus two hours Christmas Eve for shopping. He has a mile-high balch ol do- meslic issues beiore him, some ol which will go along to Hyde Park, N. Y., over the holiday. Penny-Pitching Fund to Entertain Kids London, Dec. 18 — ((P)— A few pennies pitched into a glass bowl in a London pub by two American sergeants have •grown into a lund with which 40 British children will be given a Christmas party next Sunday. Sgts. Clifford J. Morgan of Malison, Wis. and George A. Laelon, of the Bronx, New York, started pitching pennies at the bowl a while back just to pass the time. Other soldiers joined in, and then someone suggested a part of the "kitty" go toward a Christmas party for a few British youngsters. . Six weeks ago the fund had grown enough lor a party for 40 children, and the Americans thought that was pretty good. When they made the final count this week, however, they went out and hired a hall to accommodate 40. hang up, you know—it simply isn't being done."

Joe Doakes tails me, however, it's a line come-off when a man can't get a connection with his own house. The operator says "The line is busy, sir." "Well, break into it, Ihen," says Joe.

Midway Field Adds 40th Producer Former Slave Dies at Age of 123 Years Chattanooga, Tenn., Dec. 18 /P) "Uncle" Mark Thrash, who would have celebrated his 123rd jirlhday December 25, died early yeslerday at his log cabin home on he Chickamauga-Chattanooga Na tional Park reservation. Dr. W. A. Thompson, his physician, said the aged Negro had been ill several days with a mild type of influenza. Uncle Mark's claim to his great longevity had been substantiated by government investigations, Edgar Garden, chief clerk of the reservation, said. The Negro was employed in .the park from 1892 to 1922 when he was retired and had lived the entire time in a simple two-room cabin 'furnished by the government. Active until a few months ago, Uncle Mark lived with his filth wile, Jessie Thrash, whom he married nearly 20 years ago. He said, he had, as iar as he knew, 18 living children, the oldest 98 and the youngest 60.-In all he was the la- Iher of 29 children. Uncle Mark was born in slavery at Richmond, Va., Christmas Day 1820, records showed. Hc had told interviewers Ihe iirst president he remembered was John Quincy. Adams. | At the time ol the baltle oi Chickamauga he was 43 yars old and had moved lo Georgia with his master. He has told many times oi his helping bury the dead on the battlefield, "the Blue in one grave, Ihe Gray in another and horses in another." Uncle Mark never attended chool but learned to read irom his hildren. He voted regularly in iresidenlial elections and was ieat- ured on a nationwide broadcast on he eve of the 1940 balloting as the 'nation's oldest voter."

Konev's Second Ukraine Army have strengthened heir encirclement of the industrial city of Kirovograd, killing 800 coun- er-attacking Germans, Moscow announced today as Nazi sources reported new and heavy fighting in White Russia. Capture of Kirovograd would seriously menace the German garrison at Krivoi Rog, principal source of manganese for Germany's war' machine. The Germans have held to this vital mining center for months, hurling back repeated Red Army frontal attacks. y Today's Russian communique^ was unusually laconic, confining itself mainly to action around Kiro?' vograd, but Berlin reported terrific battles in White Russia, possibly; heralding the opening of a 'full- scale Russian winter drive lor the Baltic. •.

The Americans, now hold heights north, east, south and southwest of the village, a military commentator said, leaving the Germans only one road to escape. The attack on San Pietro was co- rdinated with an assault on 1,000- oot Mount Lungo, to the south of he Rome road. Closing ol the pin- ers would chop off a large section of the road near the entrance into he Cassino plain. Further inland Allied troops cap- ured Lagone, a 2,000-foot moun- ;ain village two miles west of Fil- gnano in hard street lighting. Three German attacks northwest ol Venalro were repulsed, but in Central Italy on the Fifth Army front Allied positions were driven back jy a lierce German mountain unge. The critical nature ol the struggle on the Fifth Army front was evidenced by the lact that the Germans had reinlorced their delense ol the hills with a new division, the Filth Mountain Division, which military commentator said had come direect Irom Russia.
