SiARREHIS A'THENRY'S "Wei tern Caravan," Opening Yesterday, Is Full Of Action. .Charles Starrett, Columbia's ace action star, hag an- action-packed new cowboy ,as a flgating sheriff who brings an end to the range "wars raging between cattlemen and homesteaders in "Western Caravans," the Western film based upon historical fact, showing last times today at Henry's . Theatre. Too, Starrett unearths a desperate cattle-rustling ring responsible for the range wars. Their clever tactics of rustling, the ranchmen's cattle , and throwing suspicion on "nesters," as the. homesteaders were called'by the Cattlemen, are brought to an abrupt end when Starrett brings them to justice in a lightning climax. The songs of the Sons of the Pioneers .highlight the production. Chapter three of the stirring chapter play, "Overland With Kit Carson," which stars Bill Elliott, hero iof-the recent serial hit, "The Great Adventures of .Wild Bill Hickok," and an hilarious new Andy. Clyde comedy entitled "Trouble Finds Andy Clyde," are also 'showing today at Henry's Theatre. - - - THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1939.

STOCKHOLM, Oct. 14.—Sweden Friday called the Kings of Denmark and Norway and the President-of Finland to confer here next Wednesday on their status in the European war and at the same time ordered strengthening of the Swedish-Finnish border, long a friendly frontier similar to that of Canada and the United States. It was understood that about 10,000 additional men had been sent to the upper Norland border sector, in preparation for any eventuality be'.wc^n Finland and Russia. Follows Invitation The troop movement closely fol- owed the conference invitation by Sweden's venerable King fustaf. The communique announcing ac-1 ceptances by King Christian o Denmark, King Haakon of Norwaj and President Kyosti Kallio of Fin land said they would be accompa nied by their foreign ministers. It was not immediately disclosed what specific questions were to be discussed, but the fact that Presi dent Kallio's homeland is present ly in a state of emergency—its capital deserted by many residents its armed forces in readiness— makes it a foregone conclusion that Finland's situation in the face of Russian expansion in the Baltic will loom large in the- conversations. A Finnish delegation is now in Moscow for conversations at the Kremlin with Soviet leaders. Because King Gustaf already had been suggested in some quarters as a possible m€diator of European peace, there has been some specu- ation over the likelihood of a general peace move by the north- rn countries. THREE Greeted In Finland HELSINKI, Oct. 14 (/P) — Finland reeled with enthusiasm Friday the ews that Sweden had called a con- ference of rorthern Europear States as President Kyoesti Ka lio broadened the makeup of hi. cabinet working for the preserva tion of Finnish neutrality and in dependence. The President by decree also or d-ered Finnish civilians to "hold themselves in readiness for non military pursuits if required- by the present emergency. Regula tions previously drawn providing for wartime emergencies were put into effect. All citizens may be required to work directly or indi rectly for the national defense. Crews of volunteer workers al ready were going through the city clearing attics and alleyways o"f inflammables as a precaution against air raids. "With the second* of the Soviet Russian-Finnish conferences in Moscow postponed, some, observers ^peculated pessimistically on -he nature of the proposals the U. S. S. R. may have made. Travel agencies estimate that in 1939 American automobiles will ravel a total of 250,000,000,000 miles, or an average of about 8,875 miles each.
