(UP)—On this Arctic front where the Finns and Russians arc lighting in a temperature of 28 degrees below zero, I have just heard the story of the battle in which the Finns t u r n e tl threatened disaster into triumph and started the Russians, in red-cat, toward their own frontier. Finnish headquarters officers' said that on the mornin: RY WEHR MILLER FINNISH ARMY GRN- ERAf, HEADQUARTERS, VIIPURI, Dec, 2G.

It was outlined by Hulsoi about 15,000 men on the Salla front. It was estimated by them that at least one-half the division either had been killed or had been put out of action during a fight that lasted altogether for 14 days. Only three days ago, at the spot where the battle was described to me, there was a fierce fight. Fifty., Finns ..with Ice axes had worked for several hours, after the fight.-.; digging',; graves, for .between 600 and 700 Russians in the earth, frozen between 15 inches and two feet deep. The only reminders of the- fight were empty knapsacks, pieces of frozen bread, a case of hand grenades and some light machine guns, all Russian. The machine guns seemed in good condition. I found a Russian newspaper, dated Kantalahti Nov. 30, which must have found its way here through the pocket of some Russian soldier. Kantalahti, on White AH services such as gos and water hart been cut off. Restaurants and shops were closed and there was no food for hotel guests. The constant air alarms delayed telephone communications. Sometimes Viipuri was cut oif for hours al a time, and calls were often interrupted after a connection had been established,. • '; All through Christmas Day the planes lia'd bombed the city, and F Combines 'Certificate Plan' And 'Domestic Allotment' In Proposal WASHINGTON, Dec. 2c: (UP) — Secretary of Agricuilurc Henry A. Wallace's plan lo siphon a minimum of $300,000,000 a year directly from consumers to help finance the farm program was described in detail today 'in an official statement. The statement was prepared by Assistant AAA Administrator J. B. i Unison and distributed lo all agrl- 'culture department heads, wllh approval of Wallace. Officials described Ilic statement as a "guide sheet" for discussion of the plan. The proposal faces an uncertain future, having met a cool reception from the treasury. | It combines the "certificate plan" j for raising direct revenue ami (he ! "domestic allotment" or two-price , syslcm whereby the tax would be collected only on that portion of agricultural products consumed In the American market.- The plan still Is', tentative as lo details, but Wallace lias itted by Hulson to the American Farm Bureau Federation convention In Chicago early this month. It has been approved by the Grange, second largest organized group of farmers,' but the federation was noncommital. The officially-approved statement said that principal features of the plan would be: "Prior to the beginning of a marketing year for each commodity, the secretary' of agriculture wouTS estimate the quantity of the commodity required for domestic consumption during the marketing all through the night the shells'; year.

I • "These poor fellows knew they were going to die," commented a , Finnish officer who took part in the fight. "We found diaries in their .pockets' in which they had written 'None of us will ever see Russia again.'" Tliis front is one of thin black fir trees against a pale gray sky, of long stretching wooded hills with snow covered slopes. The sun appears over the hills like a disc of red hot iron for a few hours, then it Is night again. From a Finnish battery position at the edge of a. large clearing, sloping to the east, I looked across what normally would be a r.o man's land. On the slope opposite, the officer with me explained, were Finnish Finnish' the Russians. "You don't see lliein nor do they see us but you will soon hear them," he commented. A few moments later explosion. there was a distant "Those are Russian trench mortars shooting into our woods," the officer said. "This is only the aftermath. They are retreating am firing as they go lo remind us tliat they are still there." "When do you expect them back?" I asked. "Not so soon—if at all," he responded. As we talked .1 Finnish ski patrol in white snow shirts glided by. They halted suddenly wliei a rifle shot was heard from no far away. There were other shot; tlien the rat-tat-tat of macliim gun fire. The soldiers smiled when they saw our curious looks. "Some of our fellows in tli woods firing at reindeer, maybe, said a sergeant, laughing. ing new victories. They say that ow, following up a Russian re- reat, they have cut their way cross the frontier north of Lake adoga to take the war, for the rst time, onto Russian soil, and o threaten .the Leningrad-Mur- nansk railroad which is the vital rlery of supply to the Russian ar north army.

But it was to be expected Hint fighting would continue on Christ- nas Day. The mockery war makes Df such days was best shown here. A few weeks ago Viipuri was a bustling, prosperous city of 80,000 people. About 7,000 remain, Hie rest having fled. The first ot Ihe Christmas air raid alarms came yesterday morn- and from then on, fleets of frcm six to 12 Russian planes flew over the city in relays. Except. lor air raid wardens and policemen the streets were deserted. There j were no street cars, buses or private automobiles. The gas and water were cut off al our hotel and the only food was bread with butter. Bombs that smashed down with detonations that made one think of an earthquake were interspersed with Incendiary bombs which started fires in wooden buildings. At each explosion hundreds of crows would lise from the snow covered street. 1 ; and housetops. catcs I "The secretary would determine the price to be fixed for certificates during the marketing .year on the basis of n prescribed formula. One suggestion is that the price be equal to the amount by which the current farm price for the commodity Is . below the price, "Each farmer would be given certificates amounting to his individual share of the American market in each commodity. The remainder would be sold at whatever It would bring for export. Farmers in order to receive certificates would have' to comply with AAA and other farm programs. "Farmers to whom certificates are Issued would obtain the cash vain? of the certificates by selling them at the ilxo'd price. One sug- ;eslion is that tiie Ilrst purchaser of the product be required to buy the certificate. The cost would be passed on directly to the processor who would have to show that he hud purchased certificates for all of Ihe commodity he sells in the domestic market.
