Many houses were smashed oil the southeast coast, but only a few bombers n_cne- trated to London. Loss of 4 RAF bombers was testimony to the effectiveness of the quickened pace of the war against nazi air defenses, and ot" the British feinting tactics. Bad weather at -ground level on the continent also was a factor, kccp- , ing many fighters grounded. The assault on Stuttgart, transportation junction on the route to Italy and center of the Daimler- Benz engine and Bosch ignition works, was the 15th major blow against nazi war facilities in 12 days. (Field Marshal Hermann Goering, in an order of the day on the 9th anniversary of the German ail force, declared "you have again excelled yourselves both in attack and in defense, doing your duty.' He praised the "magnificent bearing of the German people" in the broadcast recorded by the U. S f o r e i g n broadcast intelligence service.) 55 miles below iPskov, the bulletin added.

The Russians said they had captured more than 30 towns and villages in a converging movement which drew a noose tighter around the key German-held fortress city. Vitebsk has been under siege by Bagramian's army since late last year, when all rail lines into the city except one running to Orsha, 0 miles to the south, were cut.

In still other actions, a medium sixcd Japanese supply ship was sunk by a torpedo and a small vessel of the same category was destroyed by gunfire, the admiralty said. The d a t e ot the operations on the sea lane to Singapore was ;iot revealed, and except for a succinct summary of the attack on the a i r c r a f t carrier details were meager. Carrying the seawar back to the region where a Japanese cruiser was sunk recently, an unidentified British submarine sighted the carrier, escorted by 5 chasers, during a patrol on the northern approaches to the strait between Mayala and Sumatra, the westernmost major island of the Netherlands ^ast;indics. ; .

A "spelling out" of Ihe provisions of the act, incjuding the a u t h o r i t y to correct "gross inequities, 1 ' so as to permit less latitude for liberal interpretations of the law by those who administer it.

Stettinius, former Icnd-lease director, told the house foreign affairs committee--now considering resolution to extend the Icnd-lease act 1 year beyond its present June 30 expiration datc-r-lhat the program is needed "to f i g h t this war victory in closest concert w i t h our allies.'' "1 should like to emphasize," he added, ''what seems to me to be the first principle guiding all our thought and action: The war is not over--not even almost over. Lend-lease is a powerful weapon which we must maintain and strengthen in t h i s war of 33 united nations against aggression. The great battles of western Europe and of Asia have yet lo be fought.'' Any change in the lend-lease and reverse lend-leasc program, lie said, "would disturb the far- f l u n g system on whose smooth and continuous f u n c t i o n i n g we depend for victory.''

(/I'j--Russian peace terms, published in Finnish newspapers for the first time Thnrsdav morning, fell like a ' : cold shower' on the people, the Helsinki, correspondent of the Swedish newspape Aftonbludet reported.'; Even circles opposed to a '"Wail and sec" policy of the government ·egarding armistice terms took the view t h a t the conditions were im- jossible of acceptance, lhc cor- ·cspondent wrote. He added that recent developments in the. move for peace xvcrc clothed in such secrecy the people were under the impression Lhat there were grounds for hope lor a settlement. The correspondent said there was evidence of great disappointment Thursday. Russian terms called for restoration of the 1!HO boundary, immediate cessation of hostilities, no occupation or change in the Finnish government, internment of German ships and 7 nazi divisions with or without red army help. Even as the peace issue was disclosed, a Finnish communique reported lively a c t i v i t y on the fighting front with both sides attacking.
