Davies conferred with Premier Stalin at the Kremlin last night and delivered President Roosevelt's secret message a letter that some quarters thought might contain an invitation to a personal meeting with other Allied leaders. Davies was presented to the Russian political and military chief by Admiral William H. Standley, the U. S. ambassador, and was accompanied to the meeting by Vyache-slav Molotov, Soviet commissar for foreign affairs, with whom he previously had conferred at length. Tass, official Soviet news agency, told of the meeting in a brief statement early today, but gave no details of what had occurred. There was no immediate indication of Stalin's reaction to the president's message. (Some observers in London and Washington, however, were inclined to couple the mysterious missive with Prime Minister Churchill's statement in Washington Wednesday that he and President Roosevelt "earnestly hope that at no distant date we may be able to achieve what we have long sought namely, a meeting with Marshal Stalin and if possible with Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek." (President Roosevelt, on announcing Davies' mission in Washington May 7, said only he and his typist knew the nature of the letter, but that Davies presumably would become acquainted with its contents after delivery and then discuss it with Stalin.) The Tass statement said that Davies, who reached Kuibyshev by plane Tuesday, went immediately to Stalingrad and there addressed Red army troops and placed flowers cn the common grave of that city's j fallen heroes "on behalf of President Roosevelt and the people of the U. S. A." "The people who defended this city were able to check the Germans," Davies said in his Stalingrad address. "The peoples of the Soviet Union, the United States of America and Great Britain, under the guidance of their leaders will be able to defeat Hitler. Glory to the Soviet soldiers!" Davies, who reached Moscow yesterday for his first visit since he left five years ago after completing his period as ambassador, was given considerable space in the Soviet press. A statement that the special envoy gave to newspapers praising Russia's "wonderful resistance to the Huns" was prominently displayed. "My country entered this world war late," the statement said. "But I can assure you that in respect to preparation of human reserves and mechanized might, we at present are reaching high standards of our possibilities." . Germany's defeat, Davies added, "is as evident as the fact that after night comes day." Bob Waterfield To Be Officer LOS ANGELES.

Kaiser wants to begin building railroad equipment in his shipyards. 'Kaiser's engineers have been at work for months designing new streamlined passenger coaches, lightweight freight cars and diesel-powered locomotives. The shipbuilder wants to have everything in readiness even to the signed contracts when the war ends. "I want to see construction started on that very day," Kaiser said yesterday in an interview in disclosing his plans. We haven't got time to waste." Kaiser said shipyards could quickly be converted to build railroad equipment. "They can turn out welded cars on a mass production basis with speed and economy," he declared. The shipbuilder expressed the opinion that most of the railroad cars now in service would be ready for the junk pile at the end of the war. "The rest," he said, "should be turned over to lend-lease for use in the Orient and South America where they can help these countries build up their transportation system at low cost." Railroads now are the most antiquated part of the nation's transportation equipment and must be rebuilt and modernized as soon as possible, Kaiser declared. "But I'm more interested in this job because it will give immediate employment to hundreds of thousands perhaps millions of workers on the first day of peace. Our planning and investigating and studying must be completed long before and our contracts should be signed at once." Nobody knows yet what the new trains should look like, Kaiser said, but they should be built largely of aluminum and magnesium to insure lightness. Kaiser admitted the proposed light, fast trains would compete for cargo with the giant freight planes he plans to build. "That's just what I'd like to see," he said. "That kind of competition would result in lower rates, better service, and consequently a need for more trains and more planes. The people couldn't help but benefit. That's been my belief all along the more production the more prosperity. Post-war retrenchment can only bring disaster." Kaiser believes his program "would hurt nobody and would give a great boost to all the railroad industries." He said negotiations already are under way with some of the nation's greatest railroads, including three of "the largest transcontinental lines that serve the west coast." "They are all extremely interested and their response has been very encouraging," he declared. VOTE AGAINST UNION At a meeting in the offices of the New York state labor board last Wednesday, the Mutuel clerks decided not to affiliate themselves with the AFL. The vote was 407 to 124.

UP) There is no partiality in enforcing Laramie blackout regulations.

The committee was in charge of the blackout. Jury Convicts Woman Slayer Shooting of Boy Brings Conviction ANNAPOLIS, Md., May 21. UP) Mrs. Helen Aileen Randle, thirty-one -year -old wife of a wealthy Washington and Annapolis sportsman, was under conviction today for the fatal shooting of Allen Willey, seventeen, in a case which her attorney said was "redolent with passion." Mrs. Randle was found guilty last night by an all-male jury which deliberated for two hours and a quarter after hearing the attractive third wife of Ulmo S. Randle, thirty-four, tearfully deny she had intentionally fired the shot which resulted in he death of the high school student. Chief Judge Ridgely P. Melvin of Anne Arundel county circuit court said he would pronounce sentence at 9:30 a. m. next Tuesday. Under Maryland criminal code the penalty for manslaughter is a prison term of from two to ten years, or a fine not to exceed $500, or both. Mrs. Randle, who showed virtually no emotion during her two-day trial except for the period she spent on the witness stand, received the verdict calmly. She had broken down several times on the stand. State's Attorney Marvin I. Anderson had asked for a murder verdict without specifically mentioning the death penalty. The jury, however, convicted on the lesser charge of manslaughter. During closing arguments, the defendant broke down while William Curran, of the defense staff, referred to epithets which the defense charged the Willey youth had applied to her before the shooting last January 30 in the Randle home at fashionable Bay Ridge. When she had been asked on the stand to tell specifically the names she contended Willey had called her, she sobbed, "I can't! I can't!" Curran told the jury that the case "is redolent with passion," and he charged that the story presented by the state's witnesses "doesn't hang together." The other defense attorney, George B. Woeflel, called the shooting accidental, and declared that Mrs. Randle had "a right to protect her home, and not let a boy drive her out. Justification means you are justified in doing what you did, and that could mean self defense." Anderson, in asking a murder verdict, called the shooting "willful, deliberate, premeditated." Mrs. Randle testified young Willey had been insolent to her and "called me the vilest names." She said the shooting, which also sent her husband to a hospital with a leg wound, occurred when Randle attempted to take from her a small caliber rifle which she declared she obtained in an effort to frighten Willey from her home.

Arnold of Livingstone, Calif., is lifted out of a Liberator bomber after return of the raiders to Seventh air force headquarters. Arnold has his arm around Maj. Russell Wolf of San Antonio, Texas.. It was the fifth raid by the army at Wake. Swedish Bomber Is Developed By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Details of a new twin-engined Swedish bomber built entirely of Swedish materials and capable of serving as a dive-bomber were disclosed yesterday, the Berlin radio said today, quoting a Stockholm dispatch. The German broadcast, recorded by the Associated Press, said the plane "type B-18" carried a three-man crew and was heavily armored and armed with stationary "swells" and movable machine guns. It said the ship could drop bombs from great altitudes, but that its speed was unknown. The United States office of war information at the same time said the Hoerby radio in a domestic broadcast reported that about three hundred Swedish parliament members visited the Barkaby airfield in suburban Stockholm and inspected the J-22, a new plane which "in relation to its engine power must be considered the fastest fighter in the world."
