THE DETROIT FREE PRESS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1939 Finns to Take Reply to Reds Position Strengthened by Nordic Parley By Lynn Heinzerling HELSINGFORS. Oct 20 (A. P.) "Morally strengthened" after the Stockholm conference of the four Nordic states, Finland will end her former premier. Dr. Juho Kusti Paasikivt, back to Moscow tomorrow for renewed negotiations, expected to last not more than two or three days. Paaslklvi will leave tomorrow night with Finland's counter-proposals to the Soviet Government, which were expected to reflect the will of the northern countries to teer clear of any entangling alliances and to protect their neutrality and independence at any cost. May Take Aide Along The fact that an additional dele. gate may accompany Paasikivi was viewed in some circles as sig nificant, but authoritative sources Indicated that the discussion would not be concluded at the forthcom lng meeting. A Government spokesman said that another delegate might be added to the party "to give It more authority." Foreign Minister Eljas Erkko, who returned from the Stockholm conference after a 1 a t -minute meeting with foreign ministers of the other northern states Sweden, Norway and Denmark spent the afternoon drafting instructions for Paasikivi. A Foreign Office spokesman aid he knew nothing about reports that the Russians were dissatisfied with the delay in the negotiations. The Finnish delegation left Moscow last Sunday, Not Worried by Omission The fact that the Finnish-Russian negotiations were not directly mentioned in & communique issued after the Stockholm conference was considered of little importance here. It was pointed out that to single out the Finnish difficulties might seem to detract from the united front of the northern nations. Finland, with thousands of her citizens removed from the larger cities and frontier villages, , remained in a state of military preparedness. Thousands of soldiers were concentrated on Finland's natural "Maginot Line" on the eastern frontier, which la made up of deep forests and acres of forbidding boulders, lakes and rivers. Rome G.M. Trial Moves into a Third Week SOUTH BEND. Ind., Oct 20 (A.P.) Fifty-two witnesses from 20 states had come and gone in Federal Judge Walter C. Lind-ley'a court room when the General Motors trade-restraint conspiracy trial finished its second week today. Some attorneys said that the ease might be completed in two months instead of three, the original estimate. W. J. Stolz, of St Louis, testified today that he never had any trouble with the Chevrolet Motor Co. until 1925, when all dealers in St Louis were told they would bave to use General Motors financing "or else ." Continued from Page One The serenity with which Rome today received the treaty which made Turkey a potential enemy In ease of Italian military aid to Germany therefore was taken by diplomats aa further assurance that Italy was determined to stay aloof from the war. May Promote Accord Some diplomatic quarters con. sidered It possible that Britain might utilize the situation to promote better relations between Italy and Turkey. It was suggested that the two countries might be persuaded to exchange assurances of neighborly intentions and eliminate suspicions which bred ten sion in the past In the absence of official or other comment on the treaty. foreign circles considered sig niflcant wide publicity given a French interpretation of the Italian attitude. According to the French view, Italy was favorably impressed with the failure this week of the Turkish-Russian conversations because of her desire to see the status quo preserved in the Balkans. Rome was represented as envisioning the possibility of Italian- Turkish co-operation in maintain ing the neutrality of Southeastern Europe, for which Fascist diplomacy has striven vigorously since the war began. Moscow Comment Limited MOSCOW. Oct. 20 (A.P.) The newly - concluded British - French-Turkish treaty was all but Ignored today by the Moscow press, which limited comment to a warning against any attempt "to make a bloc against Soviet Russia" or to exclude her from settlement of Important European problems. In an article on the twentieth anniversary of fighting against the White (anti-Bolshevist) Russians, the Communist Party newspaper Pravda said that recent treaties between Russia and Germany on one hand and Russia and Baltic states on the other had greatly strengthened Russia's position in world affairs.

Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Belanger, parents of four-year-old Robert Belanger, and their neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Chester Druce, parents of five-year-old Robert Druce, had only faint hope that somebody had taken their children.

KLW Dan Palrol-V , l.Jt WJS oauu4( Ordu Paris Continued from Page One The High Command' night com munique reported reconnaissance and local artillery action between the Moselle and the Saar rivers, The report said that a "few" pris oners were taken but that all was quiet on the front east of the Saar. The French line, marking the more or less active front, apparently followed almost exactly along the frontier to which the French withdrew before a German attack the first of the week. The outpost activity was said to have been confined mostly to the two areas where the Germans attacked In force Just east of the Moselle River and between Saar-bruecken and Zweibruecken in the center of the northern flank. A French disclosure that a unit of one officer and 50 men was lost during a dawn patrol indicat ed to military observers the seriousness of the effort being made by both sides to cover their new positions. The patrols were operating In a cold, heavy rain which has fallen generally on Northern and Eastern France for four days. Behind the lines, however, the poilus In rest billets played soccer and worked at building theaters whero entertainments will be given for men out of the front lines. Meanwhile, French artillery shelled the German road from Perl to Sehndorf, just across the frontier near Luxembourg, in an effort to break up reported troop concentrations at the point where the Germans gained a toehold on French soil earlier in the week. Britain1 s Radio Has Scheme to Lure Germans NEW YORK, Oct. 20 (A.P.) The British are trying out a new idea to get their propaganda over in Germany tempting the Germans to tune In on a radio broadcast of news items favorable to the Allies by sandwiching in the names of German prisoners of war. The Columbia Broadcasting System, describing the new persuasive method today, said that the German language is spoken throughout the daily broadcast from 10:15 to 10:45 p. m., Berlin time. The broadcasts originate in the studios of the British Broadcasting Corp. Twenty names are read daily. Ten names are repeated from the previous day's list and 10 new ones are added. Columbia said that the program was beamed toward Germany from powerful short-wave transmitters In Davcntry. The actual reading of the names takes only about half a minute; the rest of the time is given to news items. Columbia gave several samples from the broadcast: "The Anglo-French-Turkish pact means a diplomatic defeat for Germany. Germany tried very hard to hamper the negotiations among the three friendly powers. . . ." "Two German U-boat officers will be buried with high military Honors at Edinburgh. They are U Boatmen Seidel and Schleicher . . .' This was followed by the read ing or anti-Nazi comments from newspaper in neutral countries.

Thirteen years after he left home for work, James Shannon came back today and was welcomed by the four daughters whose names had helped him recall his past. Shannon, now 65 years old, was greeted by seven grandchildren whom he had never seen and by other relatives who had long ago given him up as dead.

Germany Claims New Proof of British Blame for Athenia BERLIN, Oct. 21 (Saturday) (V. P.) An official Nazi account published by newspapers today under headlines "Athenia crime proved!" said that an American survivor, Gustav A. Anderson, had established that the British liner was sunk on Sept. 3 at the command of Winston Churchill, First Lord of the British Admiralty. The Germans stubbornly have denied the British claim that a Nazi submarine torpedoed and sank the Athenia on the first day of the war and have said that Britain ordered the vessel destroyed In order to arouse American anger. Anderson, a travel bureau operator of Evanston, 111., who was on the Athenia, was revealed last Tuesday to have filed an affidavit with the State Department In Washington stating that the liner carried guns, although none actually were mounted. (Anderson quoted officers of the Athenia as telling him that the guns were to be used for coastal defenses at Halifax and Quebec.) On the basis of Us Interpretation of Anderson's statements, the official German news agency D. N. B., said that "responsibility for the sinking of the steamer and the deaths of hundreds of people rests solely with Winston Churchill." The German statement laid stress on Anderson's purported report that the Athenia, after being kept afloat for 14 hours, finally was sunk by shells fired into her by three British destroyers. (Anderson's affidavit, as reported from Washington Tuesday, contained no reference to the shelling of the Athenia by British destroyers.) The Nazis said that if a German submarine had torpedoed the Athenia it would have been impossible to keep it afloat for 14 hours. (The British have pointed out that, after all survivors were removed from the Athenia after its torpedoing by a German U-boat, the vessel was sunk by shelling in order that it would not remain as a menace to navigation in the sea lane off the southwest coast of Ireland.) Former Dancer Says They Will Marry; HeSaysW HOLLYWOOD, Oct. 20 (A.P.) Elinor Troy, who came here three months ago to enter picture work, boarded a chartered plane tonight for New York, where she said she would marry Tommy Manville, asbestos fortune heir, upon her arrival. . She said Tommy phoned her this afternoon from New York and directed her to leave at once. "I never was so surprised in my life," said Miss Troy, who became engaged to Manville shortly before coming to Hollywood. "Tommy insisted that I drop everything and fly East tonight." The wedding would be Man-ville's fifth and Miss Troy's third. Miss Troy, 23 years old and a brunet, formerly was a bubble dancer.

Jap Reaffirms Asiatic Policy Defiant Answer Given to Crew's Speech ODAWARA, Japan, Oct. 20 (AJ.) Foreign Minister Kichl. buro Nomura declared today that the "determination of the entire Japanese nation to bring about a new order In East Asia is too strong to be changed or affected by the Interference of a third power." Diplomatic observers regarded the Nomura statement s a prompt answer to the strong speech of Joseph C. Grew, United States ambassador, yesterday, in which he said that American pu'o-lie opinion was sharply opposed to Japan's military program in China. Nomura was interviewed here while en route to the grand shrines at Ise to make devotions to the Sun Goddess Amaterasu, a tradl. tional pilgrimage customarily made by ministers after assuming a cabinet post. He became foreign minister Sept -22. Referring directly to Gmv'i speech, despite the reported Gov. ernment attitude that the speech needed no response since It was an unofficial utterance, Nomura said: "I am planning on having a ta!it with Mr, Grew. I am glad to henr that he said he would work for American-Japanese good will. "We are engaged In the recon-struction of East Asia from a broad viewpoint and we hope the United States understands both our aim and our determination. "Such a new order in East Asia as we advocate is not exclusive or unliberal as some third powers suspect. What we are aiming at Is the creation of an Ea.t Asia which can contribute effectively to the peace and progress of the world." The Foreign Minister declared that Japan shared the American hope and desire to remain free of the European conflict. "America and Japan should cooperate in defending the peace of the Pacific while they are striving; to maintain peace In their respective territories," he said.
