MARCH 8, 19-18 Finland Agrees To Discussions Asked by Stalin if, Military fact to Get Consideration Along With Friendship Treaty HELSINKI. Miu-ch 8. <UP) —President Juho K. Paasikivi announced today the government has agreed to Marshal Josef Stalin's proposal to negotiate a Russo - Finnish friendship and military pact. Paasikivi said he iiad -recommended negotiations begin in Moscow. It was understood the majority of Finnish parties, who did not want to negotiate a military alliance, proposed the Moscow site for [car Communist demonstrations might be touched off during any conference here. The rovcrnraenl's decision was made at a momentous cabinet meeting today. It was understood AsrarUns and Social Democrats held out against negotiations to the end. Paasikivi then sent a note to Moscow through the Russian smbassa- dor here. His announcement later today indicated he hart confirmations Moscow had received the note. A government spokesman said Finland would appoint n .joint government-parliament delegation to handle negotiations. The first violence of the Russian treaty crisis occurred yesterday ••when Communists broke up a mect- r»Jng at which Ernesti Hcntmicn, leader of tile small radical party with 3.000 members, spoke against the treaty. The Communists also tried to kick and beat Huntencn. Spontaneous Outbreak Hentuncn attacked the Russian proposal bringing laughter from the crowd with his pointed remarks. The laughter stopped suddenly, however, when a dozen Communists leaped to the platform and assaulted Hentunen. Hentunen cried for help and police guarding the platform stepped in. They whisked Hentunen from Hie scene in a police car. The police chief took the microphone and or- deied the crowd to leave quietly. In 15 minutes the square was deserted Hcntunen's coat and shirt was torn, b-ot- otherwise he• was-unhurt" Police said they believed the attack THN PACKS Czechoslovak Party Mergers Sought by 'Reds' PRAGUE, M.-ircli g.
