ABOUT FACE, RAY CLAPPER ASSERTS By ii.\VMO.\n C Washington, .N'ov. 5—The poor at- •ndance at the Senate, the blocks of empty gallery seats, tho casual ill (Terence of the few senators on the (loor, would not suggest that myl.lilng unusual was going on. Yet somnlhi'ng most unusual is taking place, Tho Senate is considering whether to reverse the solallonlst policy which has hud such a deep hold on the country for' wenly years. Isolationist senators say they are licked and that the iale will vole within tho next: lay or two to scrap tlie. main fea- i fensc 11 res of the Neutrality Act. House aders expect the Senate action 1M be approved In the House. This Neutrality Act that Is now about lo go out was tho final embodiment of Isolationist policy, its theory was that we could' avoid wjir by keeping our ships out of the war xones, so that no provocative incidents would occur. Most of UH- country believed that we. would he immune from any war If wo ducked Into Ihc storm cellar and stayed there until tin; trouble blew over. Thu isolationists then were not a dwindling band of desperate [•ast-dl tellers, lighting a rear-guard i action to keep the'record straight They were then the real voices ot America. x x What has caused the. collapse ol isolationism?

The shadowy characters who are mixed up in some of the fringe groups, the anti-Semitism, the offense!vo tactics, the DCS iVJolncs blunder of Lindbergh, Wheeler's Inept campaign against tho movies, the frankcd-mail Incidents—these have uH been a burden,' to the isolationist movement. They have sickened sonic of the high-minded isolationists. But every movement has its lunatic fringe and its barnacles. They are not enough lo account, for the collapse' of the isolationist movement. XXX Neither has it been due to Mi Roosevelt's, persuasiveness. His attempts to frighten the country have been received with much indi/fer- nce, ills serious attempts to spell out the dangers of gradual cncircle- nont, his warnings that real dc- of this hemisphere requires attention to off-shore, strategic points, did not awaken any notice, able waves of public clamor. lie has had to take the-necessary actions, such as tho occupation of Iceland, by going out on his own and trusting to public approval' after the act. XXX .Events have driven the country reluctantly along step by step. Germany and Japan have done it. .'Japan's threatening course in tho Paenlo, tlie news dispatches from the Far East, have themselves sound- L'd the danger signals. Germany's actions 'have spoken 'louder than anybody's words and a/anns. Tho sinking of American ships far outside tho war zones has told this country that there was- no safety for our ships anywhere except tied up In our own ports. Hitler's surprise dawn attack on his partner, Russia, following his repeated invasion of countries whoso borders ho had promised to rospcc told this country that the'man was too treacherous to bo trusted, Tho ruthless execution of hostages In the occupied countries told, this country of the unbounded brutality of this rcKlnie. In all, Germany's actions have shown first that ho is a dangerous person to try to do business with and second thai, he is disposed to show no consideration for our rights, His sea warfare, in so' far as It can, wonl'd-cut us off from slip- plies of raw materials necessary for our own defense. Hitler has said his system or ours must go, .'His acM'ons say that even more convincingly. So the news dispatches come roll- g in. This sinking and then tlia.t one.

GLORIA AND BARBARA BREWSTER Popular twins of stage an^d scr««n To give you the one that Washrngton, Nov 5—(UP)—Well-informed KOvcrnment officials said today thai: Great Britain is preparing for a largo.scalo aerial offensive on the Russian front. That will be the British, govern- meiU's reply to demands by the British .public for direct .military aid ,to the Russians, these officials said. , For the last six weeks, according to information received from competent sources abroad, the British have been moving an ever-increasing number of both fighters and bombers into Russia. Tho pianos will be manned by seasoned RAH 1 pilots. Major combat' operations will hot. be undertaken by tho. RAP expeditionary force until all arrangements have been completed for maintenance and supply, y Even British ground crews,' these officials said, arc being sent to Russia. The bombers,, it was understood, are being flown directly to Russia from the. United Kingdom. The fighters are being sent, i'n all- sorts of surface vessels, including presumably aircraft carriers, to Russian ports, whence they are flown to bases well behind the lines. These" sources, said, few, if any, planes have been sent to Russia from Britain's middle east. British . ai'r aid is sorely needed by the Russians, the officials said, to slow or stop the onslaughts of German dive bombers. The Russians were f,o feel they could cope effectively with German pander divisions if the-Stukas, which operate in cobrdnml.ion with •tlicm, could be counteracted. The Russian-aid program in this country, meanwhile, was invol-vcd in a mild controversy. Certain defense officials, one authority said, opposed the shipment of machinery and machi'ne tools to Russia on the ground thai, if the Germans win, these machines may be used against the United States. These officials contend the machines could be used in this country to produce supplies for t,he Russians, find thus would .bo available for country, if Russia falls. The • issue "is now before the top policy- .making defense officials. Officials in close touch with military supply probl-ems .revealed that t,hc .dollar value of the American portion'Of the Russian aid program as worked out at the three-power Moscow conference is between $1,500,600,000 'and $2,000,000,000, The British share was said to be -less than the smaller .figure. Plans are bei'ng worked out, it was said, to complete delivery, of the Russian -requirements by the lato spring.

Nichols, 032(5. "1 thoroughly believe .thai; there arc serious doubts of the honesty of the returns," said GurJey, who was smarting under his fourth successive 'defeat for major public office within live years. Tobin supporters hailed his victory as symbolising the "final destruction of CurJeylsm." Defeated for U.-S. senator in J03J>, for mayor in JO.-J7 and for governor in J0,'j8, Curley showed .surprising strength in yesterday's, battle, lie , carried JO of the city's 22 wards and his total vole exceeded that with which Tobin beat him in .IM7. Tobin was one of J-'i Massachusetts mayors who won reelections. Upsets occurred at Gardner, whore Mayor Kred 13. Perry was defeated for a third term by City Council President 0.
