British Ship 'Coulmore,'
Supposed Sub Victim,a
Reported In No Dangera
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2.-(P)-The
British freighter Coulmore, which'
had seemed to be a victim of a sub- t
marine attack within 'the American t
"neutrality zone," was reported safe
today and authorities here called off
a search for her. s
Coastguard headquarters was ad-c
vised by the cutter Bibb early today t
that a Canadian radio station at5
Camperdown had been informed the
Coulmore was safe. Later in the day1
the cutter Chelan received similar ad-
vices from the United States ship
American Trader.
The Coast Guard and Navy, how-
ever, did not abandon the search un-
til still further confirmation was re-
ceived at mid-afternoon.
The freighter. carrying a cargo for
England, left Philadelphia Oct. 28.
In the black hours of yesterday morn-
ing, while heavy seas were running,
shore stations picked up a message '
purporting to have been sent by the
Coulmore from a position about 680
miles east of New York.
Instead of the conventional "SOS"
call, ships now use a special war-time
distress code-a prolonged series of
the letter "S." Officials here ex-
plained such a signal can mean eith-
er a submarine has been sighted or
the ship itself attacked. .

sacking two Hungarian newspaper
offices and a number of Hungarian
shops, following a mass meeting
called to protest Hungary's acquisi-

a result of the Munich settlement.
Police looked on with folded arms
as the rioters, shouting anti-Hungar-

streets of this capital of Slovakia,

at Michigan, the conference will bring
ogether the national student secre-
aries of seven Protestant denomina-

MOSCOW, Nov. 2.-(A)-Reopen-
ing of Finnish-Russian negotiations
on further extension of Russian pow-
er to the West was delayed tonight
while the newly-arrived Finnish dele-
gation watched the Supreme Soviet
unanimously approve the admission
of Western White Russia, formerly a
part of Poland, to the Soviet Union.
Most foreign observers agreed the

Finland's five-man delegation,
headed by Dr. Juho Kusti Paasikivi,
arrived this morning for the third in
the series of talks precipitated by the
Western drive of Russian influence.
In the public outline Tuesday of
Russia's aims, Premier-Foreign Com-
missar Vyacheslaff Molotoff said
Russia wanted a strip of Finland
north of Leningrad, a naval base on
the Finnish mainland at the entrance
to the Gulf of Finland, certain is-
lands in the gulf, a part of the Fin-
nish Arctic coast and demilitariza-
tion of the Finnish frontier.
Finland was offered in return a
portion of Soviet Karelia twice the
area of the territory Russia wanted
from Finland and withdrawal of
Russian opposition to the fortifica-
tion of the strategic Aaland Islands,
between Finland and Sweden, i'f
carried out by Finland alone.
Early tonight the Finnish delega-
tion had received no intimation as
to when it was expected to go to the
Kremlin to renew the vital talks.

Role Of Communication
In Modern Aviation
Internal combustion engines and

second session of the Michigan-Life
Conference on New Technologies in
Transportation here yesterday.
In the second address of the after-
noon session, Otto S. Schairer, vice-
president in charge of patents for
the Radio Corporation of America,
emphasized the important role played
by radio and its associated fields in
the advances of transportation. Avia-

New methods in communication
Mr. Schairer indicated, are even no
lending themselves to safety in opera-
tion of railroad trains, steamships anc
other means of surface transporta-
f tion. The extension of methods o:
facsimile transmission to transporta-
tion needs was also outlined.
By this means, Mr. Schairer ex-
plained, ships at sea may receiv
orders and weather maps in graphi
- forms, and the responsibility of air
e line pilots may be reduced by havini
printed instructions from ground sta

ROME, Nov. 3.--W)--An exchange
of Greek-Italian notes expressing a
desire to give their friendly relations
a "more concrete form" was pub-
lished today, showing Italy is busily
improving her non-belligerency sta-
tus to strengthen her influence in
Southeastern Europe.
Coupled with a reliable report that
Italy also will sign a new Italian-Bul-
garian treaty shortly, the Greek-Ital-
ian exchange lent emphasis to state-
ments of informed Fascists recently
that Rome has no intention of yield-
ing her position. in the Balkans to
any power.
These Fascists pointed out that
Italy fought in Spain to prevent
Communism from spreading to the
Mediterranean, and was not likely to
stand by while it penetrated South-
eastern Europe where her interests
are paramount.
The notes exchanged by the Greek
and Italian governments were dated
Sept. 30 and expressed the hope a
new agreement shortly would replace
the treaty of friendship and concilia-
tion that was signed in 1928.
Diplomats here have forecast re-
cently that a Greek-Italian nonag-
gression treaty would be signed soon.
The Greek note, signel by Premier
John Metaxas, expressed apprecia-
tion of Italy's "spontaneous gesture"
in withdrawing troops from Greece's
Albanian border on Sept. 20.
He said. Greece was reciprocating
the action and that Premier Musso-
lini's "assurances" of Sept. 12 had
"created an atmosphere of cordiality.",
Both governments, in the.notes
which were exchanged at Atherj;,
expressed a hope that "the evolution
of the international situation will
furnish the two governments in the
near future an occasion for giving
their relations a more concrete form."'
Italy considers her interests in the
Balkans are not only economic but
also political and strategic since she
occupied Albania last April. Lately
the Fascist press has dwelled on the
possibility of a southeastern bloc
under Italian leadership.

Committee Meets Today
Goods Now Available
To Warring Powers
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2.-()-The
House voted today to repeal the em-
bargo on arms shipments to the bel-
ligerents of Europe, approving as did
the Senate last week, the Administra-
tion's policy of "cash and carry" sales.
The 243 to 181 decision left the
vociferously-argued neutrality bill
just short of becoming law. The re-
maining stages of the legislative pro-
cess, regarded generally as mere for-,
malities, were expected to take no
more than a day or so, with the bill
becoming effective early next week
at' the very latest.
.Vast Supplies Opened
The result of the action of today,
taken in a crowded chamber tense
with excitement, was to open Ameri-
ca's vast supplies to the nations en-
gaged in the European conflict. On
dozens of Eastern seaboard jetties,
goods falling into the instruments of
war category ani particularly air-
planes, sorely wanted by the Franco-
British allies, have been stacked up,

Today's vote meant that soon they
would be released for shipment. But,
before they can leave this country,
title must pass to the belligerent
governments purchasing them. Since
the bill also forbids loans or credits of
any character to the governments at
war, it :also requires that they pay

Moreover, it requires tat the pur-
chasers furnish non-American ships
for the dangerous process of trans-
porting their purchases across the
submarine-infested North Atlantic.
It forbids American ships to enter
belligerent ports in the European area
or to sail through "combat areas,"
still to be demarcated by President
Roosevelt. Under it, too, American
citizens are forbidden to travel on
belligerent vessels.
In actual operation, all concede,
the bill means that the Franco-Brit-
ish allies will have access to the ar-
senal and granary of America, to
the almost virtual exclusion of Ger-
many. This is true because the Brit-
ish fleet holds control of the seas.
However, some argued that it was
possible for Germany to receive Amer-
ican supplies through her diplomatic
allies, Russia and Italy. The law
permits shipment of war-goods or
any other materials to neutral na-
Conference Group Meets Today
The Senate-House conferees will
meet tomorrow morning. Everyone
expects them to approve a bill closely
following the Senate measure. The
next step, expected to be taken to-
morrow or Saturday, is for the Sen-
ate and House to ratify the confer-
ence report finally. Then the mea-
sure goes to President Roosevelt for
* his signature.
- Administration leaders expected to
have the bill ready for the President
by Saturday night and then to ad-
journ the special session of Congress.
The only possible hitch in their plans
was the chance that extended debate
might break out again in the Senate.
l There was still a chance-admittedly
slender-of a filibuster against the
e conference report.
