Finnish War Imposition
Repealed; New Action
Called 'Friendly Step'



WASHINGTON, Jan. 21. -(P)--
The United States Government to-
night lifted its "moral embargo" on
exports of airplanes and air equip-
ment to Soviet Russia.
The embargo was imposed Dec. 2,
1939, during the Russo-Finnish war,
as a mark of American disapproval
of Russian activities at that time.
The Soviet ambassador, Constan-
tine Oumansky, has now been noti-
fied by the State Department that the
embargo is no longer applicable to
the Soviet Union.
The decision was interpreted as a
friendly gesture.
The embargo was announced by
President Roosevelt to discourage, the
export of airplanes, aeronautical
equipment and materials essential to
airplane manufacture to countries
which were declared guilty of un-
provoked bombing and machine gun-
ning of civilian populations from
the war.
The State Department later ex-
panded it to include plans, plants,
manufacturing rights or technical in-
formation required for the produc-
tion of high quality aviation gaso-
line. '
President Hits Critics
Of 4id-To-Britain Bill
WASHINGTON, Jan. 21-(R)-
While Joseph P. Kennedy was telling
a house comittee that he opposed the
administration's aid-to-Britain bill
"in its present form," President
Roosevelt characterized certain ob-
jections raised by critics of the bill
as "cow-jump-over-the-moon stuff
-old Mother Hubbard."
The president referred to talk on
Capitol Hill that the measure would
permit the president to give away
the navy or use it to convoy supplies
to Britain. There was no indication
that his remarks were aimed in par-
ticular at Kennedy, his retiring am-
bassador to England, although one
of the suggested amendments that
Kennedy approved was a prohibition
against American convoys
State Pastors
Meeting Hears
Dr. E. Aubrey
Theology Professor States
Value Of Christianity
To True Democracy
Democracy is not really Christian
until all its acts are dominated\ by
the Christian faith, Dr. Edwin E.
Aubrey, professor of theology and
ethics at the University of Chicago,
asserted here yesterday in an address
before the second annual Michigan
Pastors Conference.
"We must not automatically think
of democracy and Christianity as be-
ing inextricably bound together," Dr.
Aubrey said. "For the democratic
form of government is not necessar-
ily Christian in its actions. Nor is
the church dependent on any one
particular political faith. We must
never forget that Christianity em-
braces all classes, all nationalities
and all races."
Dr. Aubrey declared that if the
Protestant Church wishes to help ob-
tain a Christian democracy it will
be forced to sacrifice some of its own
vested interests. It must develop a
"profound fellowship" within its
ranks and substitute a certain
amount of centralization for the'in-
dividualism it has hitherto enjoyed.
The church must not repeat the

mistake it made in 1918 and make
the present world conflict a "Holy
War," Dr. Aubrey continued. "Our
nilap is tn rnvire the blood trans-
