MENNER Wrillcn for NBA Service Soviet Russia is currently looking at the world through the pince-nez glasses that porch on the nose of her kcwpie-faccd foreign commissar-premier, Viachoslav Mikhailovich Molo- lov. His recent harrangue at the democracies for prolonging Europe's war and the "war of nerves" clamped against Finland for refusing Russian military demands, throw light on the personality, background and outlook of the man who since last May has been directing affairs at the Soviet foreign office.

They're embodied in the first feature-length cartoon since Snow White and her pals began charml mg the customers in February, 1938, and they'll reach the nation's screens two months in advance of Disney's second feature, "Pinocchio." "Gulliver's Travels" has been drawn mid filmed in Florida, during (he past 18 months, by Max Fleischer, an assortment of excutivc Brothers Fleischer, and a crew of about GOO. Holly- Wood pays no attention to activity outside its generous environs, and until now it has scarcely been aware that anybody is daring t o compete with Disney in full-length animations. But Gulliver and company have come to Movietown for final organization and inspection, and the Paramount lot these days is as busy us Lilliput itself in the scramble to get everything sct f ol - pro-Christmas release. A few odds and ends of film tor insertion in the picture arc arriving almost hourly from Miami by plane. Comedy Broader Than Because of the production's disjointed condition, your correspondent was able to see only numbers 3, i, and B of the eight ,-ecls. Parts of them were without dialog, und other sections had no sound effects or music. They were enough, however, to show that the Fleischers have turned out a swell piece of entertainment. If the colors seemed slightly Jess rich than those of a Disney product, it may have been due partly to reflections from a low metal ceiling in the projection room. If the comedy seemed a little broader than the Di.sncy brand, what of it? Maybe Disney's stufl would be improved by a little more slapstick. Sonic changes have been made in Swift's original story, und the script deals only with Gulliver's adventure in Lilliput und the war with the diminutive people of Blefuscu. In fact, it's told from the viewpoint, of thy (Continued oa Page Four) 'Gulliver's Travels" is moviedom's latest contribution to the rapidly c.xjianding collection of foiblcd film cartoons. Top picture shows Wax Fleischer's Gulliver in (he middle of one of his many adventures. Bottom picture is that of people wln^u voices you'lfhcar ;md who posed, for some of the scenes—Lovcy Warren, Sam Parker and Cal Howard. Molotov is Stalin's alter ego. Forty- nine years of age and son of a clerk, he won his spurs by becoming a revolutionist at 17 and a Siberian exile in his twenties. Ever since he has been stumping for Soviet "ideology" in general and Joseph Stalin in particular. Careful Grooming Doesn't Fit In personal appearance, he is nol unlike the late Thcdore Roosevelt. He is pale, rather thick-set with heavy He is pale, ratclir thick-set with heavy shoulders, and seems out of place among most of his colleagues because of his Anglo-aristocratic bearing and careful atention to grooming. Like Rykov, whom he replaced as chairman of the Council of People's Commissars, he speaks with a noticeable stammer. During my recent trip to the Soviet Union, I found his picture everywhere, often beside those of Lenin and Stalin. Sometimes entire top-stories of Soviet office buildings are covered by canvas poster-portraits of the Soviet quadrumvirate: Lenin, Stalin, Molotov and Voroshilov, commissar for defense. The foreign commissar is popular and personality capable, but is destined to remain a figurehead so long as Stalin is master in the Kremlin. Close observers of long experience in the capital refer to him as the Georgian's "good man Friday." Hasn't Faced Single Firing Squad For 18 years he has been the immediate assistant of Stalin and has escaped the successive purges which have depleted the ranks of the Old Bolsheviki. As new master al the foreign office (which has known only three changes _n its leadership in the last 21 years— Chicherin, Lilvinoff and Molotov; he is me of Ihe youngest foreign ministers j m Europe; .speaks German and French fluently.

Reasons for this action by Adolf ..Hitler's Blackshirt guard were vague. Shots were heard at Masarvk college but apparently no one was injured. On Wednesday about 2,000 Czech students demonstrated against the Bo- hemina-Moravia protectorate government set up by Germany hi the dissolution of Czechoslovakia. Jap-Russian Peace TOKYO, Japan —(If)— A foreign spokesman asserted Friday that relations between Japan and Soviet Russia had changed to a point where the situation was more favorable "than ever before" for solving their outstanding differences. He said the change was due to the following factors: L The September 6 truce which ended '.fighting ; ojjj the.-bjqrder, vbejjwe'en., Outer Mongolia and Manchbukub. 2. The European situation. 3. Japan's "fundamental policy'' for conclusion of the conflict with China.

Mediation Isn't Wanted by Nazis But Would Respond to U. S. Request for Statement of War Aims BERLIN, Germany —(/Pi— Authorized sources said Friday that any general mediation! offer by President Roosevelt at this lime would be "uninteresting" as far as Germany is concerned. France's injection of Austrian restitution into the issues at stake in the European conflict, these sources said, shows conclusively that the Allies regard all peace talks as futile. However, should President Roosevelt ask both sides to disclose their war aims to him with the view of finding some common basis for mediation Germany would be most likely to respond, these sources said.

The aerial traveled 30 yards and Payton ran the remaining distance. Tommy Newton, Spartan quarterback thrilled the crowd with a 98-yard run in the fourth quarter.
