Embargo Foes
'Credit Clause
Is Abandoned,
Leaders Plan Amendment
To Relax Restrictions
On U.S. Merchant Ships
Revisionists Hope
To Shorten Debate
WASHINGTON, Oct. 16.-(A)-To
strengthen their position in the fight
for repeal of, the arms embargo, Ad-
ministration leaders consented today
to strip the neutrality bill of its pro-
visions permitting 90-day credits to
belligerent governments.
In addition, the leadership indicat-
ed strongly that it soon would be
ready with an amendment intended
to relax the measure's severe restric-
tions on the wartime operations of'
American merchant ships.
Tactical Maneuver Involved
Separately, or in combination, these
concessions involved a tactical ma-
neuver of much significance in the
present controversy. A number of
Senators who favor repealing the em-
bargo are strongly opposed to the
credit and shipping provisions of the
bill. By meeting their criticisms, the
leadership felt that it could nail
down their votes on the more im-
portant embargo question.
Then, too,, the leaders hoped that
by reducing the points of contro-
versy contained in the bill, much
time-consuming debate might be
avoided and a final vote correspond-

U.S. Should Offer Peace Plan
Immediately, Slosson Believes

Prof essor. Says Proposal
Is Important. Although
Success IsUnlikely
The United States should make
peace proposals at once to the nations
engaged :in the Second World War,
Prof. Preston W. Slosson, of the his-
tory department, said yesterday.
While the prospects for an imm=-.
diate peace are "nil," Professor 8los-{
son continued, we should make the
proposals to show definitely how we
feel about the war and to make what
may prove to be a rallying point when,

Plan Must Reestablish Poland
A peace plan which would be con-
sidered by France and England would
have to contain a clause reestablish-
ing the independence of Poland-
something which is absolutely con-
trary to German aims, he said. It
is foolish, Professor Slosson explained,
fto think of Germany's abandoning
as easy a conquest as Poland. It is
equallyr foolish, he pointed out, to
think of England and France ever
renouncing their war aims and grant-
ing a 'German victory.
"Despite the fact that I can see no
chance for an immediate end to host-
tilities, President Roosevelt should
offer to act as mediator for the war-
ring powers and present them with a
plan which seems to be a lead, to
lasting peace," said Professor Slosson.
This plan would have to contain
guarantees that peace would and
could be maintained, he went on,
regardless of the aims and ambitions
of any nation or group of nations.
Would Limit Armaments
The ideal peace proposal, he said,
would contain a clause which empha-
sized limitations of armaments and
periodic- inspections to ensure their
permanent limitation. This would not
only keep armies and naVies small,
but it would prevent ill feeling from
developing between nations because
of suspicions of breach of faith, he
pointed out.
Compulsory arbitration of all in-
ternational disputes, Profesor Slos-
son continued, must be put into effect
if any peace is to be lasting. This

northern flank of the Western Front,
drove the French out of German ter-1

The fighting lasted all day and as

northern flank of the Western Front.
Here the French established posi-

war to: prevent the Germans from
driving through neutral Luxem-
bourg territory to out-flank the whole
French front.
Since the French had been holding
advance positions some two miles in-
side German territory at this point,
it appeared to military observers here
that today's German attack obviously

there was no official announcement'

The two countries had been re-

have agreed on some sort of a pact.
The Tuirkish Embassy declined to,
state when Saracoglu would leave

Student Senate Will Consider
Peace Resolution And Election

Sipping the national Finnish drink,
coffee, 25 University students of
Finnish descent gathered at the first
meeting of the Suomi 'Club Sunday
night at Lane Hall to discuss the
Finni-Russian situation and to elect
new officers for the semester.
The discussion brought out two
opinions expressed by the group.
One, that their first loyalty was due
the United States. Two, that Fin-
land had little chance against Russia
in a military conflict.

Looming on the "horizon for the
Student Senate are two important
campus functions, one traditional,
and the other in line with the appar-
ent determination of the student body,
to keep out of World War IL.
The first is the semi-annual sena-
torial election. Norman A. Schorr,
'40, and Stuart Knox, "40, were chos-
en last week to serve as co-directors
of elections. The date for the elec-
tion was officially announced as Nov.
According to Martin B. Dworkis,
'40, acting president, pending action
of several collegiate coordinating
agencies in requesting the stand of
the Michigan student body on the
foreign situation and its bearing on
the United States, he has submitted
the following resolution for action

The robbery was carried out be-

Hayes surmised, by someone familiar
with the house and its members. In
one instance, he explained, the thief
took a wallet from one member's
trousers, removed the'bills, and put
the wallet on that member's desk.
Police summoned yesterday took

Stanton Says Turkey Will Sell
Her Support To Highest Bidder

Dr. Stanton pointed out other con-
siderations tending to drive Turkey
into an alliance with the western
powers. Fear of German domination
of the eastern Balkan states, menac-
ing Turkish territory is one consid-
eration, he said. Great pressure on
the Chamberlain government by
English oil interests in Rumania are
responsible for attractive British
loans to Turkey, he added. (By keep-
ing the Dardanelles open, Turkey
could facilitate British aid to Ruma-
nia in case of attack.) Another point,
Dr. Stanton observed, is the late dic-
tator Mustapha Kemal's conviction
that Turkey had supported the wrong
side during the World War.
