I. .. March 14 The proposed United States loan of $:!,"f0,0(Kj,0O( to Great Britain was pnvisHful today by Ralph h. Flanders, research chairman of the Committee for Economic Develop ment, as an aid in halting the tpr-ad of Russian Communism. Testifying before the Senate Banking and Currency Committee, Flanders said t he nation was disturbed by a "lack of comprehension of Russia's purposes and policies. Rightly or wrongly, we have the feeling that this lack of comprehension is the most serious problem we face in maintaining peace for the next generation." War Contrary to Interest. Flanders said that Russia does rot want to go to war, "because it is so obviously contrary to her in terests to have war. liut, he added, when it comes to a war "between different types of social organization, we may be sure that Russia does want that kind of struggle." "Furthermore, it is a conflict which we ought to welcome, pro vided the superiority of either side is finally determined by the favorable effect on the living conditions of the peoples living under one or the other set of ideas. Tins kind of competition Russia will engage in, and we should gladly join in it, berouse fundamentally it is competition to improve the material conditions of humanity." Sees Friendly Competition. Flanders said the loan to Britain was the "first skirmish" in the battle between rival ideas which "strive for mastery of the world's economy and social organization" If the loan is granted, he said, it will lead the wny to "friendly competition with the Soviet Union for the well-being of the world." 40$ Slash Near In Milk Supply Fully l.f.OO.OOO quarts of the city's 4.000.000 quart-a-day milk supply will be cut off next week by the 12-day strike of fiber milk container makers, a spokesman for the Milk lH-alers Association of New York Inc., said yesterday.

'Gitfa' at Music Hail; Romantic Melodrama By KATE If it's escape you want in a movie, you will find surcease from the worry of today's scary headlines at the Music Hall, where Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford are pitted against each Thomas Acts To Bar Fixing Of Margins Washington, D. C, March 14 (U.R). Chairman Elmer Thomas (D-Okla.) of the Senate Agriculture Committee moved today to block the Government's attempt to fix margin requirements on cotton or any other farm commodity on the nation's exchanges. Leading the Congressional attack on Economic Stabilizer Chester Bowles' order boosting margin requirements on cotton to $30 a bale, Thomas said he would offer an amendment to the Administration's minimum wage bill which would bar such action.

Arthur Walsh, vice president of the National Association of Manufacturers, today termed price con trol "just as unworkable as the Volstead Act and just as detri mental in the long run to indi vidual freedom as prohibition was, The former Democratic Senator from New Jersey said that although people think of price control in "terms of holding down prices and are for it," in reality, price control becomes "entangled and bound up in the fantastically interwoven economic life of our country." Russian-Born Aid Quits State Dept. Washington, D. C, March 14 (U.R).

Gilda, with Miss Hayworth, in the title role, has been given as slick and fancy a background as Columbia's woman writer-producer, Virginia Van Upp, could manage on what must have been a very; generous budget. The picture is a romantic melodrama, set against the glittering background of a gambling casino in Buenos Aires. The characters "Gilda, Columbia picture directed by Charles Vidor from screen play by Marion Parson-net. Presented at Radio Music Hall. Running time, 1 hour 50 minutes. THE CAST: OiW.i Kita Hayworth Johnny Fajrrpll Glenn Ford -George Macrpaly . Joseph Cail-i;t Stevon Oniy Jnp Sawyer Gerald Mohr Rolwrt Scott Ludwiff Ponath S. Z. Mrtcl Georre J. lin Kopa K y l:nolo Pio Captain Dpttrado.. abe Evana Thomas Langford T.ittle Man Maria of the drama are interesting and well played and although the) story has all the elements of high-class trash, director Charles Vidor and his experienced players have given it considerable holding power, by keeping the audience in suspense from one dramatic shift to the other. The audience is never let into the entire secret of what actually passed between Gilda and Johnny Farrell before they met, again in the Argentine capital to resume their particular segment of the everlasting war of the sexes. Our introduction to Johnny is at the end of a crap game on a Buenos Aires dock, when Johnny walks away with his merchant marine mate's dough and preserves his life only through the intervention of a stranger. The latter turns out to be the owner of a gambling casino, who hires Johnny, makes him his manager and is repaid by Johnny's devoted loyalty to the boss's interests, even when the latter returns from a trip abroad bringing Johnny's former girl back as his bride. Miss Hayworth is at her most beautiful and alluring best as the tempestuous Gilda. She does one solo dance to the tempo of an Argentine tango and sings two songs with considerable zip. "Put the Blame on Mame," and "Amada Mia." "Gilda" brings Glenn Ford back to the screen after more than two years spent in the Marine Corps, and although his part in the film requires him to glower and sulk through most of the action, he does that with conviction. George Macready, Joseph Calleia. Steven Geray and Joe Sawyer give the principals substantial support. The Music Hall, as usual, gives it patrons a sprightly, tuneful and colorful revue between exhibitions of the feature picture. Hilda Eckler . is the ballerina, Richard and Flora Stuart the specialty dancers, the Gaudsmith Brothers furnish the comedy, and Edward Reichert is the tenor soloist.
