Tho only official wotd of thc HiiMian demands had come in a comimmlquo which said: "Accord- Ing to Information in possession of the Finnish government the Soviet government Is believed -to have planned the presentation of demands lo Finland more far- reaching fn character than thobc presented Jnsl nuttinm. Details, however, of these demands arc so far lacking." ifov.-onjr, the details as received hero In dispatches front the Scandinavian • countries were icgaidcd as Inacccptablo. Cession of the tntlru Karelian Isthmus, It was •said, would leave Finland at Rui- sa's mercy, without.nalmal fion- llcr defenses, and cession of Hiin- go would bo,n..fo;qtiioUl for sovtctl- zntfon of Ilia country. -But'it was snld 'tltat 'it the Russian demands were : liiere dljilo- nmtlo talking points, subject to moderation In negotiations, the Minis would welcome Hie piosp'ct of pence.

There were many Imponderable 'actors: What atlllude Great Brl- aln, France mid Germany had aken in the lust few days; whiit iclp Finnish leaders thought they iilitlit get from abroad; what jiuirantccs Germany or other na- lons might be willing lo give; the nnnl attitude of Sweden and 'i-Jor- vay toward direct assistance and ownrcl the passage of foreign .roons and matcrlaL'i across tlielr territory. ; It wns not clear whether Fln- nnd had actually rejected any <;|>cclflc Russian proposals. It was rtjmrlrtj in reliable miarters that cvernl prominent Finns, Including men closely associated with the negotiations at Moscow just before-. Ihe war, were in Stockholm to-day. It was learned that Foreign Minister V. A. Tanner had been in Stockholm a few days ago, possibly in connection with the peace move. Many Finns believed Germany had actually been the initiator of thc peace proposals. A report wns circulated here that Germany had susgesWd to Russia recently that it liquidate the Finnish war as soon as possible after capturing: Vlipuri. -' There was an Increasing belief In neutral circles here that events of thc next few days might determine the fate of all Scandinavia.
