TWELVE THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1939. FINN-SOVIET TALKSHALTED Reported Russia Asking For Naval Bases On Certain Finnish Islands HELSINKI, -Oct 14 (£>)— Indefi- nate postponement of further Finnish-Soviet Russian talks in Mos- co-wr -led diplomatic circles to be- "lieve today that'Finland had been faced , with proposals she would -find difficult to accept. • While- the foreign office maintained silence on the progress of the conversations, reports circulated in the capital that Russia had asked the right to establish naval bases on certain Finnish islands in the Gulf of Finland. • There was a general belief that a. week or more might elapse before the outcome of the negotiations would become known. intense activity in the loreign office apparently indicated close study of reports which Dr. Juho Kusli Paasikivi, head of the Finnish delegation, was believed to have relayed from Moscow. Lights burned far into the night In the ministry. DENTAL PLAN IS APPROVED fContinued from Page 1) dental units, one for the city and one for the county, in order to save the expense of transporting children to the clinic in the Health Department, and has also supplied portable equipment which can be used In rural schools. Under the program announced, «,t a meeting last night of the Dental Society, at which time it received the Society's approval, children in the first three grades of both city and county schools will be given limited dental care. It has been proven that by treating younger children, subsequent de;cay and trouble often may be avoid-, ;ed by early diagnosis and treat- 'ment. " : Dr. S. C. Leonard, of the dental division of the State Department of Health, and Dr. John Knutsen. representing the dental division of the U. S. Public Health Service, attended the society's meeting last night and spoke. , Members of the Dental Society pledged their cooperation and assistance in every way to make the program here a success.

The Industrial Committee of the Chamber of Commerce has already sent out letters and is preparing additional ones to be sent to manufacturers who are thought to be possible prospects for locating a plant in this community. These letters set forth data regarding the community that the particular manufacturer would probably be interested in. Already some replies have been received requesting additional data. There is a vast number of con- tactg that the Industrial Committee expects to draw on for information regarding prospects. For example, the salesmen traveling .in our communit}-, the manufacturers of partly finished articles used by local industry, and the purchasers of partly manufactured products from our local plants are all contacts from which information regarding prospects can be obtained. The Chamber of Commerce would be glad to have suggestions regard- Ing prospects.

Migratory Waterfowl Hunters On Increase WASHINGTON, Oct. 14 (#>).—Migratory waterfowl hunters have increased in Maryland in the period since the- first "duck" stamps were issued by the Bureau of Biological Survey in August, 1934. The bureau reported today 6.S61 migratory bird hunting stamps were sold in Maryland last year. In 1934. sales totaled 6.575 stamps. Since these licenses were first required, 23,985 have been sold in the state. The stamps cost $1 and are good for one year. They must be in the possession of all persons over 16 years of age who hunt for migratory waterfowl. DEATHS Mn. Nina K. Furry, wife of the Dr. William D.

WOLFE, Superintendent Fair Board Office SANFRANCISCO, Oct. 14 (#>) Delegates to the second annual CIO national convention turned home ward today carrying instructions Vo organize the "unorganized millions of American workers on an indus trial basis." The last convention word of John L. Lewis, whom the 385 delegates tumultuously reelected president was a warning to the AFL to "beware of the rising potency of the CIO. "We must not believe that because, we have a great multitude of members that all is well, or that our enemies are asleep just because they are silent for the day—and that goes for the AFL as much as for the National Association of Manufacturers.'"' Lewis said as the delegates shouted approval. "Yesterday the American Federation of Labor listened for an hour to some individual * * * accusing vour President of being ruthless and ambitious,"rLewis told the second convention of the Congress of ndustrial Organizations. "He told he American Federation to be- vare." Lewis paused, smiled and remarked, "I think they had better be- vare. The Congress of Industrial Organizations is the only instrumentality in the last half century hat has proved itself capable of dealing, with industry on equal erms. "For the first time industry has >een compelled to recognize the In- ustrial. social and political rights t the workers. That work has een appreciated by millions of rorkers not yet in the ranks of rganized labor." Lewis repeatedly had urged dele- ates to "organize the unorganized'' nto the CIO. He was re-elected after a 32-min- te demonstration in which singing, houting delegates serpentined bout the hall to the accompaniment of a brass band, a drum corps, owbells, whistles and shoes of tocking-footed delegates pounding n tables. Six vice-presidents also were lected by acclamation in a change t organization. Heretofore the "IO has had only two international ice-presidents. James B. Carey, 28-year-old pres- dent of the United Electrical, Raio and Machhie Workers of Amerca, was re-elected secretary by ac- .lamation. This time Carey steps nto a paid job, breaking the CIO precedent of paying * none of its nfficers. All of the international vice-pres- dents are heads of their unions or rganizing committees. Sidney Hill- nan. New York, Amalgamated llothing Workers of America, and Philip Murray, Pittsburgh, Steel Vorkers Organizing Committee, vere re-elected. New vice-presidents are Emil Rieve, Philadelphia, Textile Work- Union; Roland J. Thomas, De- roit, United Automobile Workers; H. Dalrymple, Akron, Ohio, United Rubber Workers, and Reid Robnson, Denver. International, Mine, ill and Smelter Workers. Cleveland and Philadelphia ex- ended bids for the 1940 meeting.

Newman's Packing House Smithsburg, Md, Phone 71 U-BOAT SINKS BATTLESHIP (Continued from Paye 1) commanded by Capt. W. G. Benn. Before she was commissioned during the summer at Portsmouth the Royal Oak was with the second battle squadron of the-British home fleet. 1,150 Believed Aboard Her normal complement of men was from 1,009 to 1,046 but in times past the ship's company had approached 1,150. According to Jane's fighting ships, a compendium of the world's warcraft, the Royal Oak mounted eight 15-inch guns and 12 six-inch guns with four submerged torpedo tubes. She carried one catapult for aircraft. The sinking was Britain's second big naval loss of the war. The aircraft carrier Courageous was torpedoed by a German submarine September 17 and sank with a loss of 515 men. The Royal Oak was 620 feet long and was capable of a speed of about 22 knots. Her keel was laid down in January, 1914, and she was completed in May, 1916, at a cost of £2.46S..269 (currently about $10,000,000). The sinking came only a few hours after the Admiralty had announced the sinking yesterday of three German submarines, saying, "Friday the 13th has proved an unlucky day for the U-boats." The Royal Oak was first In line in the British fleet at Jutland after the flagship, the Iron Duke. Jutland was the World War's greatest naval encounter. Both Germany and Britain claimed victory but the German fleet did not challenge the British thereafter. Whether the new blow at the British navy marked the start of the "total war' 'threatened by Adolf' Hitler following Prime Minister Chamberlain's rejection of German terms for peace remained to be seen. The landing of 158,000 British soldiers in France, and British successes against German submarines had led London observers to declare that Britain was ready for Hitler's next move — whether in warfare or diplomacy. The press also generally agreed that Britain could play a waiting game and ultimately crush the Nazi military machine at the "strategic" moment. British observers declared that Britain and France had "Hitler on the run" in both the military and diplomatic phases of the war. The Nazi leaders, they said, were faced with continuing the war against what were regarded here as insup- era.ble odds or making another peace offer that might in itself mean the overthrow of the Nazi regime. It was disclosed also that three Polish destroyers have been operating with the British fleet against the submarines of the power that- conquered Poland.

GOODRIDGE TJ"" 1 Rear 115 W. Franklin St. 2 Doors from Mn.vflowor Cab SIGN$ of Every Description Join My Lettering School LOW RATKS BERLIN, Oct. 14 (fl>) — The lul in military activity on the western front is expected here to continue a little while longer—at least iinti Italy and Soviet Russia have spoken. German conversations with these countries were said already to be under way. Only a few high-rank ing Nazis, however, can predict Adolf Hitler's next step now that Prime Minister Chamberlain has rejected his terms for ending the war. Informed German quarters said nothing more may be expected from France or Britain, but they expressed belief the door still is open for a neutral nation to step in as an intermediary. The only official comment on the progress of hostilities in the west was a communique reporting that three enemy planes had been shot down near Coblenz. The supreme army command also noted "minor artillery activity." In the east, the communique said, German occupation of the Nazi "sphere of influence" in Poland was completed as troops took over "the last sectors at the Bug river." Meanwhile the impression prevailed that Germany would launch vigorous attacks from the sea and from the air on the British navy and coastal points—which some Nazi strategists apparently believe are vulnerable. FRENCH ALERT AS GERMANS ARE MASSING (Continued from Page 1) lars left standing on their side of the river. Destruction of the bridges— which connected Mulhouse and Mullheim, Colmar and Frieburg, Ha- geunau and Rastatt—left only two other spans across the Rhine. Both are located at Strasbourg. The French reported' their observation planes had taken advantage of the brief period of clear weatl*- ey yesterday to take photographs of the German lines at several points. Riddled By Bullets Both the pilot and observer of one of these planes were found dead in their seats after the craft, riddled with bullets, had landed safely behind the French lines, it was. said. A camera in the plane was undamaged and contained "valuable" photographs of German positions, the French declared. The ship apparently had been engaged in a dogfight Avith a German plane, but the pilot, though fatally wounded, lived long enough to make a landing. The French watched the diplomatic situation closely. Some quarters expressed belief that Germany would continue her "pea.ce offensive' 1 through pressure through neutral states following the refusal of Britain and France to talk peace on Hitler's terms. Jury Says Sound Pictures Helped LOS ANGELES, Oct 14 (£?)— Jurors who convicted DeWitt Clinton Cook. 20, of first degree murder in th&' bludgeoning of Anya Soso- yeva told Superior Judge Thomas L Ambrose sound pictures aided them materially in reaching the verdict. The all-male jury did not recommend leniency and the mandatory sentence of death in the gas chamber will be pronounced Tuesday. Cook originally confessed killing the former follies dancer for whatever money she might have in her purse. Police made sound pictures as the Hollywood printer reenacted the slaying with the aid of a girl who volunteered to pose as Miss Sosoyeva. Motion pictures have been used here before in trials, but this was the first sound film shown a jury. Judge Ambrose said he questioned the jurymen in his chambers to determine what value they placed on such evidence and was told they were assisted materially in clearing several points they had under discussion.

Charles A WASHINGTON, Oct. 14 (£>).— Herbert Hoover's proposal that the United States retain an embargo on '•'offensive" port today Lindbergh, who suggested also that this country must demand ultimately that Britain and other European powers get out of the western hem isphere. Members of the Senate, who are considering President Roosevelt's request that the ban on arms sales to warring nations be lifted, refrained from immediate comment. HoAvever, their reaction to the idea of continuing the embargo on "offensive" weapons such as bombing planes — to use Lindbergh's example—while- repealing it as to "defensive" weapons like anti-aircraft guns was indicated when former President Hoover made the suggestion last Tuesday. Chairman Pittman (D-Nev) of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, a leader of administration forces in the current controversy, commented at that time that "that's piddling around with immateriali- ties." Senator Borah (R-Idaho), a leader of the- foes of embargo repeal, said the first thing that occurred to him wag now the plan :ould be made feasible; and Senator Nye (R-ND), another opponent of repeal, said he agreed with Hoover's suggestion in principle but ,hat it might be difficult to draw the line between aggressive and de- ietisive weapons. Col. Lindbergh, in an address last night over a radio (Mutual) network, recommended a four-point program: "We desire the utmost friendship with the people of Canada," said in a radio address prepared for Mutual Broadcasting System. 'If their country is ever attacked, our navy will be defending their seas, our soldiers will fight on their battlefields, our fliers will die in their skies. "But have they therright to draw ,his hemisphere into a European ivar simply because they prefer the n-own of England to American independence?" "Sooner or later we must demand the freedom of this continent and its surrounding islands from the dictates of European power. American history clearly indicates this need. As long as European Powers maintain their influence in our hemisphere, we are Hkely to find ourselves involved in their troubles. And they will lose no opportunity to involve us. Lindbergh's stand on whether this country should refuse to sell arms to warring nations was similar to one recently taken by Herbert Hoover. The flier advocated the following four-point program: An embargo on offensive weapons and munitions. The unrestricted sale of purely defensive armamen'.s. The prohibition of American Chipping from the beligerent countries of Europe and their danger nes. The refusa.1 o£ credit to belig- erent nations, or their agents. Repealing the present embargo on arms, he said, would not assist Democracy in Europe "because I :lo not belive this is a war for Democracy." "This is a war over the balance of power in Europe—a war brought about by the desire- for strength on the part of Germany and the ear of the strength on the part of England and France. The more munitions*'the armies obtain, the gei' the war goes on, and the more devastated Europe becomes, he less hope ther is for a Democ- •acy." If England and France had offered a hand to Germany when that country was Democratic, he said, 'there would be no war today.'" "It is impossible for me to understand how America can contrib- ite to civilization and humanity by sending offensive instruments if destruction to European rattle- fields," the aviator wont on. "This vould not only implicate us in he war but it would also -iake us >artly responsible for Its devasta- ion." "Our bond with Europe," he said, is a bond of race and not of po- ilical ideology. * * * it is the Eu- opean race we must preserve; po- itical progress will follow. * * * f. the white race is ever seriously hreatened, it may then be time or us to take our part in its pro- ection, to fight side by side with he English. French and Germans, )ut not with one against the other or our mutual destruction." ANNAPOLIS, Md., Oct 14 (£>)— The case of a man arrested on wha his attorney said wag a warran outlawed 300 years ago wag pend ing before the Court of Appeals to day. Attorney George B. Woelfel, ap pealing the case of a convicted numbers operator, said his clien had been arrested on a "warran of investigation," which he des cribed as the same thing as the "writ of investigation" which he said was one of the causes of the Revolutionary War. Under the warrant, police hole suspects for a limited time for in vestigation. "Our statutes make nb provision for the issuance of a warrant o investigation and I can find no authority for its issuance at com mon law," Woelfel said. "By the promiscuous use of this heinous warrant every individua in this so-called free country can be made the subject of an arrest on mere suspicion. The state does not have sufficient evidence to charge an alleged culprit with any crime but it has enough circum stances to warrant his arrest, to search his person and even to thrust his into solitary confinement in order to make him confess and thereby 'assist' the state in con victing himself."

Writer Says British Expeditionary Force Preparing For Germans m By DREW MIDDLETON WITH the British Army France, Oct. 12—Delayed—passed by field censor— (ff>)~ Britain's highly mechanized army in France is waiting and drilling—waiting on a possible German attack and drilling to be ready with its French allies to turn it back. It is hard to believe that within a short distance of these quiet, poppy strewn fields me-n are being killed and wounded. But the evid- ences'of war are near—long lines'of trucks with munitions and supplies crowd the roads. In the fields women with only old men and boys to help them are harvesting the crops. British truck drivers eat their lunches like picnic parties on the side of the road. Unlike the World War, the horse is not much in evidence. So mechanized is the British Army that in two days driving I have not seen a horse being used for military purposes. Both sides in this war seem to be sparring—like boxers In a fight. Neither is prepared to let his Sunday punch go until he has felt out the strength of his opponent. There is little ot the "professionalism" between the- officers and their men which existed during the World War. Caste Feeling Gone "The old feeling of caste, which was deep in 1914, is gone. Men and officers seem to feel that we're all in it together." A trip to France on a troopship is like a journey on the river Styx. The moment the anchor goes up the lights go out. The journe-y is made In a murky darkness. AFLPROGRAM IS DEFINITE Convention Closes After Arguments On Neutrality Legislation CINCINNATI, O., Oct. 14 (ffi).-r The American Federation of Labor left the scene of Its 59th convention today carrying a program that called for strict aloofness from war and the continuation of its established policies .toward labor peace, partisan politics and revision of the Wagner Act. In the closing hours of the convention yesterday, trade union delegates topped off two weeks ot debating and speaking on the controversial issue of revising the neu- irality act by adopting a stand that foreign powers making: purchases n the United States should be required to accept title here and car- y them away in their own ships. The report renewed the Federation's insistence that the United Slates remain neutral, keep Its ships and citizens out of war zones and prohibit the extension of credit' .o foreign powers which would 'give this country a stake In the outcome of war." Adopted without debate, the council report said nothing about ifting the arms embargo from the neutrality act. LIBERAL LOANS on Diamonds, Watches, Guns. Muslcn.1 ln*Lnimenta.
