The German navy, once free of its lassie with England, could attacks Leningrad from the west. That means the Kussians must have naval bases on both the northern and southern shores ot the Gulf of Finland, and in the Gulf of Bothnia. That would give warning and outer defenses for vital Leningrad and the I iuz.il lo Moscow. Otherwise, bombers ! could swoop down over the paper-thin little son,' metal roofs of Leningrad, and the in- in flammable timber stored in the harbor and make a shambles of Russia's .second largest city.

Help Available for Worst Cases Some of the reliefers get by. And .some don't. The critical cases gel varied help. Families with children under 10 still get milk. Chronically ill have special diets. Unemployables get 70 per cent of their former handouts. Underlying the Toledo situation is the same stale politico-relief tangle that, has brought other large cities in Ohio into difficulties over the rame problem, only Toledo is in a more critical spot. The crisis came in Toledo when a real eslatc tax for relief was defeated at the polls in September, and the city found itself with a relief debt, of around S1,ODO,000 and 5140,000 cash on hand to run to Iho end of Ihe year. Few "Professionals" on Ihe Rolls • The survey of the Council of Social Agencies indicated thai remarkably few of those taken from relief rolls were "professional reliefers." Fifty per cent of the names were not on the rolls in 1938. Relief Commissioner C. A. Benedict verified the fact that Ihe "reliefers" were willing lo work.

Furthermore, u Russian attack on Finland is most advantageous from the Russian point of view in the month of December, because the marshes and lakes of south and central Finland arc frozen hard enough to sustain motor transport and infantry troops. Snowfall is nol yet heavy enough to impede progress, and above all the usual January thaw is slill ahead. Thai means Ihe Russians can threaten from the air first, as they arc doing, in the hope the Finns will quickly give in. But. if they should resist further, the Russians could spread a huge army across a wide front and overrun the Finns with u motorized attack similar to the one used by the Germans against the Poles. This is Ibe only month of the year such an attack would be feasible and practically guaranteed to succeed before it started. Points three and four: Because world opinion inevitably sides with the underdog, and Finland is the uncler- est possible dog, the Russians may well be content to soften the force of that opinion against her, and allow the Finns to keep nominal independence, so long as the Soviet retains the Auhind Islands, the Hango naval districts, the Finnish Islands in the Gulf of Finland, Petsamo on the north, and a strip of territory sonic Z~> miles wide to protect Leningrad from a surprise attack. Point Five: Robbed by the expert Russian timing of the protective heavy sand dunes, marshes, granite boulders, and open forests between Leningrad and the border, and the protection of water close inshore along Ihe Finnish const (because the ice is already forming), the Finns must look with considerable despair at their prospects. Kinland Needs a Miracle Heretofore German friendship gave them superior moral over the Russians, for they felt assured of German aid. This is obviously not forthcoming now. Sweden can send no airplanes or other help, because her safety, too, is threatened by the Russian advance. Despair could lead the Finns lo retaliate against the Russian^ by bombing extremely vulnerable Leningrad. The January thaw could help, by bogging down the Russian infantry and the Russian planes. But, that is entirely unlikely. Jf the Finns should have any such miraculous piece of luck, however they might be able to count on a revolt later on among the Russians of the north against tile Stalin regime. Anti- Stalin feeling is reported here to be comparatively strong around Leningrad and among the Russian sailor.-, t.n the Baltic. But that too, is a flimsy possibility, because the Stalin opposition i.s not well organized. So, short of a miracle, the jig's up for Finlju'id—for the present. Jt is .said that j 00.000 people are engaged in the 550,000,000-u-yvur "coal hootjegging" business. The first, book printed from movable type was not that by Johann Gulen- Lerg, it is said. A Chinese, Pi Sheng, is credited with the accomplishment m 1011. tcl counter to. make out her shopping o ff of relief. This was referred to by I the council: The apathetic attitude of many sends me lo gel something out of stock and leaves while my back is turned. " . . won't wait her turn, but says, 'Won't you wait on me next?" "... is so afraid that the customers on cillicr .side will find a better bargain that she has to «;e everything they are being 1 shown." When each salesgirl had finished the sentence and added "but most shoppers are really, pretty nice and considerate," they were asked another question: "How would you describe the perfect shopper?" "That," they said answer is it man." easy. The persons is based on absence of demonstrations or other concrete indications of actual suffering, which conclus- U'lily proves to them that clients cut off from relief arc somehow managing to get by without it." A raven is kept at Merscburg castle, near Halle, Germany, as u reminder of a grave injustice. Many years ago, a servant was executed for the theft of a valuable ring belonging to the Eishop Thilo of Trotha. The ring actually had been stolen by a raven.
