H was nn- parent that the Russians sought to advance northwestward alone the south side of the lake system, and thus cut into the heart of southern Finland, it was reported that the Russians now were about 25 miles inside Finland on the -eastern side of the isthmus as they had been for days. An official spokesman said that more than too Russians were wounded in u fight, MOSCOW, Dec. 11. (UP) —Russia made it plain today that it would not accept the British blockade against German exports and would reserve the right to demand compensation of any suffered under it. Premier Viaclicshv Mototov, who is nlso foreign commissar, asserted In a note to Great Britain OF NORTHEA8T^AliKAN3A3 AND 800THBAOT MISSOURI BLYTT1EV1LLU, AHKAN^," MONDAY, DKClffllHIoiTTT Mississippi Couniy Fann- ers Vole 4610 To 1!5 For Quotas that Hie blockade was unprecedented.

It was announced that nu.ssl.iii roops had occupied Kuolojaervi, 35 miles inside Finland uml 1GO nfles northeast of Bothnia. the Gulf of the Ladoga. Four surrendered spokesman said. They said lint the others did not because thev had been advised that the Finns shot all prisoners. Baron Carl Gustav Miinncrhel-n commander In chief of thc armies' yesterday extended martial law to the eastern and northern provinces of Finland.

Survivors, arriving at Tallinn, were quoted as saying that one member of tile crew was missing. Finland's appeal lo Ihe world foi aid was broadcast yesterday at a plenarj' meeting of parliament. Finland asked aid in'a'struggle '•-i-for .'the- .de'feiise'' of oitr-. democratic regime, our religion' oui homes, which all civilized people hold sacred." Speaker Vlinoe Hakkila made tho broadcast in parliament's naiiic. "Our position as advance guard of western civilization gives us Hie right to expect active help from other civilized nations,'' he said.- "To all these nations' the Finnish parliament now sends this appeal." Finland, which always had tried to live at peace, had been the victim of brutal aggression by Russia without cause, he said, and It had no course but to resist, "So far WP are fighting- alone against an enemy which threatens to invade our soli. But in reality it Is a struggle for all lhat humanity holds most precious. ". • . We believe that the civilized world, which has given us testimony of iU great sympathy, will not leave us to fight alone against an enemy more numerous than ourselves." The broadcast suffered interference which Finns attributed lo Russian stations, but it was audible clearly in Finland. The diet at its'meeting authorized a loan of 1,700,000,000 marks ($34,000.000). The loan had bc»n considered since September. Two unique Finnish weapons, .the "jjuuko."- a razor sharp dagger, and a remarkable litlle machine gun which, weighs less than a portable typewriter, seemed dea- . lined to play 'important parts— along with skiis—in 'this strange and unpredictable war being fought In ice • and snow and the obscurity of the Arctic night. You have to forget all preconceived Ideas to comprehend how litlle Finland Is able to oppose great Russia. Tactics, geographical and climatic conditions nre not those of usual wars. In the north, thc Finns fight with long white cloaks over their uniforms, to make them invisible against the snow. They hide behind rocks or trees, permit liie Russians to pass through them, then on their -sklis sweep down on the Russians as dizzy to attack them with the "puuko." their six Inch knives which they wield with upward slashes. Seventy thousand lakes cover nine per cent of the area of Fin- land and they are Interspersed by interminable forests, thickly dotted with luiae outcropplngs of rock—all ideal for defense especially against tanks. Much of the fighting is in Arctic obscurity. Even In the south there is only about five hours of daylight, and in the far north there Is practically none. It turned AWAY IN A MANGER 'Away in n manger, no crib for his bed, The Hlllc Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head . . ." Singing of Christmas hymns around a manger, begun in the parish church of St. Francis of Assisi in the 13lh century, was a custom carried down through the . - ...- years. For such a ceremony Mared much colder yesterday and tin Luther, 16th century German there Is more snow. The Finns! minister, wrote this ' Christmas hope it will snow heavily—the song, now long popular as a man- more, the better. Then the lakes fier carol, will freeze.

The communique, Issued by the Leningrad military authority, said the Russian.-; had made general gains of from three to 4',i miles on all fronts. iia's blockade note was handed lo the British embassy here . yesterday. It was pointed out thai Russia previously had made protests against the British "contraband control." But Ihe new blockade, it was said, further prejudiced the interests of neutral states and further violated international law. Britain's demand that neutral ships call at control ports was "wholly arbitrary," the note said. : Finally, Molotov said that Russia, protesting against the new measures, reserved • the right to compensation for losses If merchant ships of Russia were forcibly 'Escorted lo British or French ports,, or If the application of the blockade caused 'other ' lass"of foreign trade to' Russia.
