pillboxes on her frozen and lake-
dotted frontiers, Finland gave ground
slightly before a gathering Soviet at-
tack today but reported the capture
of many prisoners and the destruc-
tion of eight tanks in one sector.
Finnish aviation also took the of-
fensive, despite bad weather, a Fin-
nish army communique announced,
and Finnish fliers attacked Russian
troop concentrations while on re-
connaissance flights.
The communique did not mention a
Norwegian report that Finnish fliers
had destroyed 60 Russian planes with
incendiary bombs at Murmansk, So-
viet port of the Arctic Ocean about
60 miles from the Finnish border.
Another unconfirmed report said
Finnish planes had raided Paldiski,
Estonian port 45 miles across the
Gulf of Finland. Russia has leased a
base at Paldiski and from there Soviet
planes were alleged to have set out
to attack Helsinki.
The communique said 64 Russian
tanks had been destroyed in six days
fighting, and that enemy losses
amounted to 2,000 men.
The situation by sectors, as out-
lined by the communique was as fol-

Petsamo, on the northern front-
the Soviet is moving great numbers of
troops against the Finns in the Arc-
tic, but the Finns are engaging in
frequent machine gun battles and are
using new automatic rifles with
devastating effect.
A little farther south, the Russians
captured the vlilage of Kuolojarvi,
about 31 miles from the frontier and
about the same distance north of the
Artie Circle.

front-the Finns withdrew according
to plan, they reported, from the vil-

Uusikirkko oh the railway line near
the Gulf of Finland coast, is about
200 miles from the border. Valkjarvi,
near the center of the isthmus, is

way issued a rush call today for a
conference of Scandinavian countries
to explore the possibilities of peace-
ful settlement of the Finnish-Russian
war and to take stock of their own
alarming situation.
Emphasizing the earnest desire of
the northern countries to reestab-
lish peace, Norwegian Foreign Minis-
ter Halvdan Koht invited the foreign
ministers of Sweden and Denmark to
meet with him in Oslo Thursday.
The prospect of any stronger stand
by the three nations in support of
Russian-invaded Finland was dim-
med, however, by a subsequent dec-
laration by Prime Minister Thovald
Stauning of Denmark that his coun-
try would maintain neutrality.
Sweden, showing increasing alarm
at the Soviet incursion into Finland,
mined her territorial waters near the
Fininsh-owned Aaland Islands, in the

Baltic and took other precautionary
steps to strengthen her defenses.
