Freighters May Be Called
To Haul War Supplies,
Food To Democracies
Churchill Claims
Troops Are Safe
WASHINGTON, April 30.-(W)
President Roosevelt asked the Mari-
time Commission tonight to obtain
service of "at least 2,000,000 tons of
merchant shipping" to be used to
supply "all out aid to the democra-
In a letter to the commission's
chairman, Rear Admiral Emory S.
Land, the President indicated that
cargo vessels of all types might be
taken from their existing or proposed
trade routes to haul war supplies and
food across the seas.
He said also that the American
Merchant Fleet must be expanded
faster tha was planned "so that
ships and more ships will be avail-
able to carry the food and the muni-
tions of war to the democracies o
the world."
The President's action was another
in a chain of steps designed to help
insure that weapon of war produced
in American factories shall arrive on
the other side of the Atlantic.
Already Mr. Roosevelt has said that
American naval vessels may range
the seven seas, even into combat
zones, to be on the lookout for craft
that might prove a threat to the
Western Hemisphere. These' naval
patrols are expected to be of help to
Britain by spotting Axis warcraft and
giving warning of their presence.
Mr. Roosevelt has said the govern-
ment has no idea of using American
naval vessels for convoy purposes,
however. Today, with administration
forces arguing that he would not re-
sort to convoys without asking the
consent of Congress, the Senate For-
eign Relations Committee defeated
a half dozen attempts to force anti-
convoy resolutions to the Senate Floor
for Debate.
BEF Saves 45,000
In Greek Evacuation
(By The Associated Press)
While Prime Minister Winston
Churchill told a cheering House of
Commons in London last night that
45,000 of the 60,000 troops which
comprised the BEF in Greece had
been saved, Berlin reported that Nazi
troops were cleaning up in the Pelo-
ponnesus, and thatthe Germans were
ready to incorporate Greece in the
"new order." From Moscoe came the
report that 12,000 Nazi troops had
been landed in Finland, only 50 miles
from a military base acquired by
Russia at the end of the Finnish war.

Detz erCalls Press Freedom
Essential To Present Liberties
Freedom of the press and censorship are the concern of every American
if our present liberties are to be preserved, Karl Detzer, roving editor of
Readers' Digest, declared at a meeting of the Adult Educatirn Institute
yesterday in the Rackham Lecture Hall.
Asserting that we must constantly ask ourselves "How can we keep
America free?" Mr. Detzer spoke of freedom of the press as one of the
factors that made possible the very sort of meeting that he was addressing.
While we are safe for the moment from "the logic of the bayonet and
the culture of the firing squad" only in the United States and Great Britain
could such a meeting be held, he pointed out.
We are concerned not only with censorship of military information, but
of publications, movies, radio and private individuals, and to the censor-
ship of these Mr. Detzer announced ~---- - --

Little Mase Gould, left-handed re-
lief hurler of the Michigan baseball
team, stood arm in arm with Cliff
Wise on the doorstep of the diamond
hall of fame for a few brief moments
yesterday afternoon.
With a joint no-hit game over the
powerful Broncos of Western State
Teachers College almost within the
grasp of the two Wolverine hurlers,
Gould weakened in the ninth and
gave up two hits, two runs and the
ball game. The final score was: West-
ern State 2, Michigan 0.

hurled hitless ball for the first four
innings, and Gould was not the only

Some type of control, self-imposed

the Boston police censor as deroga-

the country.
