WASHINGTON, Nov. 25-(P)-Ad-
ministration leaders and Lord Lo-
thian, British ambassador, appeared
to be in agreement tonight on putting
off the question of financial aid to
Great Britain until the new Congress
convenes in January.,
Lord Lothian, just back from Lon-
don, spent an hour each today with
President Roosevelt and Secretary
of State Hull, but said that credits
were not mentioned at either confer-1
The ambassador told newsmen that
financial assistance was one of the
problems to be met "in the-first half"
of the new year but could wait for<
action by the new Congress.
Earlier, Senator Barkley of Ken-
tucky, the Democratic leader, said af-4
ter a White House conference that7
the question of British credits would
not be taken up at the current session
of Congress. The matter was dis-
cussed, other sources said, at the con-
ference which Speaker Rayburn
(Dem.-Tex.) also attended.
Secretary Hull indicated a belief
that action by Congress would be nec-
essary to permit financial aid.
He was asked at his press confer-
ence whether there might be ways of
extending financial assistance with-
out revising the Johnson and Neu-
trality Acts, which bar credits to a
debt defaulter or a belligerent. Hull
repled that .he would not undertake
to say there was any without action

(By The Associated Press)
BERLIN, Nov. 25-Bulgaria; long
viewed as a likely convert to the Axis
lineup, is staying out, for the present
at least, informed Nazi sources indi-
vated today.
This disclosure came with the sur-
prise statement by the informants
that the signatures of Hungary, Ru-
mania and Slovakia to the Rome-
Berlin-Tokyo pact ended the pres-
ent series of additions.
Authorized quarters hinted, never-
theless, that Adolf Hitler's diplomatic
maneuvers, which already have cov-
ered most of the continent, will con-
They added that the fact Bulgaria
is not expected to join up at this time
has nothing to do with developments
in Turkey.
There was unconcealed relief in
Sofia, where a high government of-
ficial's reaction was that "it now ap-
pears certain to us Bulgaria will not
be involved in war this winter." At
the same time it was disclosed Bul-
garian Foreign Minister. Ivan, Pop-
off already had packed his bags to go
to Berlin early this week.
Diplomatic circles in Sofia saw in
the developments an indication that
Hitler and Joseph Stalin do not see
eye to eye on division of German and
Russian spheres of influence. The
Bulgarian argument against joining
the Axis was believed generally to
have been inspired by the Russians,
who were represented as still not wil-
ling to concede that all the Balkans
belong in Germany's lebensraum -
living space.

Ann Abor may yet have a new
airport, for the special Airport Com-
mittee of the Common Council,
though balked by the Council at the
last meeting Nov. 18, is still working
on the proposal for a new and larg-
er airport.
At a meeting of the Michigan
Aeronautical Societ "at 8 -p.m. today
in the Union, Prof. A. D. Moore of the
engineering college and a member of
the Airport Committee, will explain
what the committee hopes to do in
regard to the proposed larger air-
On Sunday six aldermen and sev-
eral county officials participated in
a trip to Detroit to inspect the air-
port there. The trip was sponsored
by the Ann Arbor Junior Chamber of
Commerce, which has been backing
the new airport plans.
Seventeen of the party of 35 - all
who cared to - were flown back to
Ann Arbor in one of the American
Airlines' flagships, to view prospec-
tive sites for the airport from the
air. The rest of the group toured the
Detroit city airport.
At a dinner at the Union held af-
terwards, Mr. A. H. Wait, Chicago,
regional supervisor for the Civil Aer-
onautical Board, addressed the group.
Mr. Wait stated that he thought a
new airport would supply a "real in-
centive" for new industries which
might locate in this community, since
manufacturers now prefer to have
airport facilities near.
He said that Congress has recently
appropriated $40,000,000 for develop-
ment of coastal airport, and that he

believed a similar appropriation
would be made for interior airports.
The new airport, - he observed,
would probably not operate at a
profit, but would easily make its own
George M. Downs, co-operator of
the Ann Arbor airport also addressed
the meeting, pointing out that the
facilities of the present airport are
severely overtaxed.
Speech Contest
Finalists Picked
Six Compete Tomorrow
In N.S. Auditoriun
Six students were selected yester-
day in tryouts for the finals of ,the
semi-semester speech contest for stu-
dents in Speech 31, by members of
the speech department.
William Baker, '43; Libby Faunce,
'43; Stanley Frye, '42; Jim Bob Steph-
enson, '43; William Wadworth, '43
and Joy Wright, '43, were chosen
from among the 18 representatives of
the class sections. Finals will be
held at 4 p.m. tomorrow in Natural
Science Auditorium.
Judges for the finals will be Prof.
Louis Eich, Mr. Maxwell and Mr.
Beal of the speech department. Prof.
Henry Mosher will act as chairman
for the first contest of the year. The
second Speech 31 contest will be held
in January, Professor Moser an-

He also stated that aviation has
grown considerably in Ann Arbor
since 1933. During that entire year
local fliers flew only 300 hours, while
in July and August alone of this year
they flew more than 1300 hours.
Approximately 140 trainees, includ-
ing the 70 CAA students of the Uni-
versity, are now taking lessons at the
field, he said, causing crowded con-
ditions which make the training in
some ways inefficient.
Dr. C. Merle Dixon, chairman of
the Junior Chamber of Commerce's
airport committee, and toastmaster
at the dinner, announced that ne-
gotiations are under way to have
American Airlines designate Ann Ar-
bor as a regular stop for commercial
flying if the new airport is obtained.

Jewish Refugee Ship
Explodes Off Palestine
HAIFA, Palestine, Nov. 25-(AP)-
The refugee steamer Patria, packed
to the gunwales with 1,771 wander-
ing, homeless Jews, exploded and cap-
sized in Haifa Harbor today with an
undetermined but possibly heavy loss
of life.
The refugees, who had sought il-
legally to settle in Palestine, had been
placed aboard for transporation to
some other British colony for the dur-
ation of the war.
The causeof the explosion was not
determined. Many of those aboard
managed to swim ashore.

Hitler Is Reported Leaving Italians

Spanish Club,
Robert Friers, nationally known as
Hitch-Hiking Champ of the World,
will speak and show his color movie,
"Overland to South America," at a
special lecture sponsored by La Socie-
dad Hispanica tomorrow at 8:30 p.m.
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Last summer Friers thumbed his
way 6,000 miles through Mexico,
Central America and Colombia. At
Monterrey on election day he was
seized by followers of General Alma-
zan, who accused him of being a spy
of the oppositionists camp. They
roughed him up and stole his pocket-
book, and then had a sudden change
of heart and allowed him to take
pictures of them.
In Colombia Friers interviewed the
deposed President of Ecuador, Senor
Ibarra, who told the young traveler
that he still dabbled in domestic pol-
.tics by influencing six revolutions in
six successive months.
Tomorrow night's showing of "Ov-
?rland to South America" will be its
Michigan premiere. The film has re-
-ently been shown six times in Chi-
-ago, including an appearance at the
Adventurers' Club. Friers' talk will be
in English.

(Associated Press Staff Writer)
An informal but apparently auth-
orized intimation has come from
Berlin that Italy is to be left for
the present to work out her own mili-
tary destiny in her clash with the
Greek-British Allies.
Just what it means is not clear.
It may represent almost as serious a
hitch in Herr Hitler's diplomatic-
political drive eastward in the Balk-
ans as does the military setback Mus-
solini's armies have sustained in
German failure to extend the Ber-
lin-Rome-Tokyo alliance to Bulgaria,
Yugoslavia or Turkey would leave the
conflict along the Greek-Albanian
frontier isolated. It is only through
Bulgaria or Yugoslavia that Nazi mil-
itary power could be thrown quickly
and effectively against the Greek

ian retreat all along the 104-mile
battle front is an effort to draw the
victory-flushed Greeks into a trap.
Once they drive forward beyond the
mountains of Northern Greece and
Southern Albania, Italy's mechanized
forces may be able to turn the tables.
It is also within the realm of pos-
sibility, however,.that Berlin regards
the neutrality of Bulgaria and Yugo-
slavia protecting the vital war re-
source of Rumanian oil from British
bombing attack as too important to
risk at this stage. That alone seems
to provide a logical explanation of
Hitler's tactics.
There are many symptoms that the
Greek successes have stirred anti-
Axis elements in both Bulgaria and
Turkey to resistance of any internal
move to knuckle down to Berlin.
The Berlin attitude is hailed as at
least a breathing spell for Bulgaria.
