WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7.1S48 Modified Pact Signed by Finns Parliament Must Ratify Treaty to ^ Make it Binding HELSINKI, April 7. (UP)-Rus- :ia and Finland signed last night n Moscow a friendship and mili- iary alliance which specified that nnnish troops shovild be used only .or the defense of Finnish itrr!-- wi'les and waters. The Finnish government announ- =eri the completion of the pact proposed by Premier Josef Stalin directly after the Communist, coup In Czechoslovakia. The treaty terms as sketched by official quarters here guarded Pinland against one of the possible provisions which Finns had feared the Soviels would demand-a military agreement so broad that Finnish troops would be called into service by (he Russian* anywhere. The signing ceremony was held in the Kremlin at 9 p.m. Moscow lime. Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov signed /or Rawla. Premier i Mauno Pekkala' for Finland. I The conclusion of the |>nct gave Russia a broad Western cordon of allied statc.s across Europe from i the Mediterranean to the Arctic! ^ high government official said I the military pan O f Hie treaty was I based on a Russian proposal, the ' third put forth by the Soviets, of eight articles. He said the Russians made several concessions during the negotiations, and the pact was lined out entirley in accord with the instructions given the Finnish delegation by it.s government. The first article, the spokesman said, sated that Finnish troop; should he used only for the defense of Finnish territories and waters. He said the second provided -that Finland and Russia through negotiations should decide if and when threats of aggression by foreign powers existed, and whether there was a need for Russian troops to participate In the defense of Finland. The treaty must, be ratified by parliament to become effective. A high political source In Helsinki had said before the actual signing was announced that the pact did not Include permission for • the Russians to establish peacetime - bases in Finland.

(UP) — The country's H.000.000.000 atomic bomb and energy program "is now at its most critical stage," David E. Lilienthal said yesterday. "We have the momentum." the Atomic Energy Commission chairman said. "We dare net lose that momentum, if we do we will have lost one of history's greatest opportunities." •' T 'In a speech to .the National Press . Club, UlienUial said he saw no more than a "remote" hope that the United Nations ever will reach agreement on world control of atomic energy. This country, therefore must keep on expanding the vast project which, he said, came close to collapse after the end of the war. If s in the Italian Election O L- Communists g^ > real majority, they will immediately attempt to take over complete control of Italy. If they get less than a majority but more than 40 per cent, they will demand .representation in th« cabinet. This will put them in position to work for f, D 01 ? , as they ex «c u ted in Czechoslovakia. If Reds get less than 40 per cent of the vote, their strength in the unions will still enable them to continue trouble-making by calling strikes, demanding wage increases and .mor» food State Brewers fleet Five New Directors UTTU5 HOCK, April T.
