The United Press reported last
night that the Treasury had pre-
sented to Congress-along with a
request for immediate action-
a new $4,800,000,000 tax bill
which would boost already stiff
individual and corporate income
taxes and social security levies.
Biggest item in the program
would be a new income tax to be
taken out by employers from
monthly payrolls. This would
raise between $2,000,000,000 and
WASHINGTON, Nov. 5-(P)-Sec-
retary of the Treasury Morgenthau

sion with the House Ways and Means
Committee late today, members said,
and discussed the possibility of early
Congressional action on a new anti-
inflation tax program to raise about
Fourteen of the committee's 25
members were present and some of
them said a decision would be made
tomorrow on the Treasury's request
that action be started on the new
pla nat once.,
One member said the Treasury of-
ficials expressedk the hope the bill
could be enacted in time to put some,
of the proposed taxes into effect in
January. He said there was little pos-
sibility Congress would act with such
speed, however.
Another member, who said the
Treasury proposal called for taxes
amounting to about $4,800,000,000.
asserted they involved chiefly higher
Social Security levies and incoW,
taxes. Other members said, how-
ever, the group discussed a wide var-
iety of proposals, including compul-
sory savings plans under which taxes
would be deducted by employers from
their workers' pay envelopes. A gen-
eral manufacturers' excise levy also
was talked of, it was reported.
Legislators said the Treasury based
its appeal for the huge n9ew bill, al-
most double the' $3,500,000,000 de-
fense tax bill enacted a few months
ago, on the threat of inflation.

While the Moscow radio claimed that the German drive on the Central Front had been brought to a
standstill and that Nazi troops were entrenching in an effort to hold what gains they had made, Germany
claimed that their Crimean offensive had broken through to the Black Sea over the Yaila Mountains. On the
approaches to the main Soviet ports of Sevastopol an d Kerch, however, Hitler's legions appeared to have
been halted. Nevertheless, the German march over the Yailas represented an important strategical gain, for
it would enable the Nazis to cut the Soviet defending troops into three parts. The German offensive against
Rostov also appeared to have been temporarily halted. Soviet reports this morning claimed that the Ger-
mans in the Donets Basin (possibly near Rostov) were in full retreat.
At day's end it appeared that Hitler had passed for the time being from the offensive to the defensive

Slogan Of SDD Rally WillBe
'Win The War-Win The Peace'

WASHINGTON, Nov. 5. -(IP)--
The White House today labeled as
important the speech which Presi-
dent Roosevelt is to deliver at &
p.m. (EST),. tomorrow to the In-
ternational Labor Office delegates.
All three major radio chains will
carry the speech, it was announced.,
because of the crisis in Japanese-
American relations, informed sources
said today.
The decision came as a surprise, in-
asmuch as some House leaders had
talked previously of knocking off leg-
islative work for the balance of the
year, as soon as the neutrality and
price control measures were out of
the way.
Influential Democratic legislators,
who asked that their names be with-
held, said that under present plans
there would be nothing more than
three-day recesses for either the Sen-
ate or House in the near future.
Chinese Troops Said
To Be Aiding Russians
NEW YORK, Nov. 5-(P)-Round-
about reports from unidentified sour-
ces were received in New York to-
night to the effect Chinese troops
are going to the aid of Russia against
the German invaders.
The M&orocco radio said the Chinese
would send 40,000 troops to Russia,
asserting its information came from
China dispatches which said the gen-
eral commanding the Chinese 18th
army had made the decision to send

(By The Associated Press)
The Germans. claimed last night
that their central offensive in the
Crimea had broken through to the
Black Sea over the 5,000-foot-high
Yaila Mountains somewhere be-
tween Kerch and Sevastopol, but
there was no evidence of progress of
consequence for the drives directly
upon those major ports.
Moreover, a strong improvement in
the Russian position about Moscow
was plainly suggested both by Ger-
man silence as to that theatre and by
a Sovietdeclaration that theNazis
had been halted everywhere along the
Central Front and were urgently dig-
ging in, even emplacing tanks as
stationary pillboxes, in an effort to
hold what gains they had made.
Hitler, it appeared, had passed at
least for the time being from the of-
fensive to the defensive and was for
the moment fighting a mere holding
action in the hope of preventing the
possible shift of troops from about
Moscow to the South.
As to the Crimea the available in-I
formation plainly implied that on the
approaches to both Sevastopol, the
main Soviet Black Sea naval base,
and Kerch, which stands at the
northeastern extremity of the pen-
insula and is separated by only two
miles of water from the Western
Caucasus, the Nazis had come down
to a substantial halt.
As much was indicated by Berlin's

that these thrusts had materially

to be that the Nazis had reached

been falling back in a retreat which
was now ending.

Marshal Semeon Timoshenko had

He has been active in the peace-
through - international - organization
movement ever since his return from
active duty in France at the end
of the last war. It is his firm con-
viction today that lasting peace and
a democratic world order can only
be attained if the United States helps
Great Britain and Russia defeat Ger-
many and its allies.
Rust was the originator of the pe-
tition which urged Congress to wage
"total war on Hitler now" and was
signed by 275 members of the Wayne
and Michigan faculties.
Professor Slosson, well known
among the students of the University
and a nationally recognized historian
and authority on international or-
ganization, will demand that we
"Make the Peace Stick."
Like Rust, Slosson has long advo-
cated world organization for peace
and is now an interventionist. He
was a member of the Wilson peace
delegation to Paris after the last war.
At present, in addition to his teach-
ing duties, he broadcasts three times
a week over WJR.
The third speaker on the rally pro-
gram-Don O'Connor, '42,-will look
at the war and the peace from the
student's point of view. As treasurer
of the Student Defenders of Demo-
cracy, he has taken an active part in
the fight for greater aid to the anti-
fascist nations.
The local meeting will coincide
with student rallies on other campus-
es all over the countryt. By far the
largest of these is the one which is
to be held in New York City under
the sponsorship of the American
Youth for Freedom, of which the

The Tokyo radio said tonight
Japanese observers have aband-

an understanding with the Unit-
ed States in the light .of the hos-
tility of American public opinion

The radio, heard by NBC, also

TOKYO, Nov. 5--(P)-Saburo Kur-
usu, the dapper diplomat who signed
the Axis alliance for Japan, is flying
to the United States in a new hurry-
up effort to ease the admittedly "very
serious situation" in the Pacific, it
was announced today.
The urgency of his mission was be-
tokened by the fact that the China
Clipper was being held two days at
Hongkong to make connections with
the plane in which Kurusu already
is en route from Tokyo. This was ar-
ranged last night in a radio-telephone
conference between U. S. Ambassador
Joseph C. Grew in Tokyo and Sec-
retary of State Cordell Hull in Wash-
ington, a Japanese government
spokesman said.
(Although Kurusu signed the Axis
treaty he is not considered either
strongly pro-Axis or anti-American.
He has held posts in the United
States and married an American wo-
(Secretary Hull said the United,
States had nothing to do with Kur-
usu's mission except to extend the
usual courtesies of travel. Sources
close to Hull said the Pacific situ-
ation was at such a critical stage that
the less said about it the better.)
Simultaneously, the Japan Times
and Advertiser, organ of the foreign
Affice, boldly called on the United
States to "take the right turn in the
:oad" or "face the alternatives."
The gist of a seven-point program,
which the paper said the United
States must adopt if any agreement
were reached, called for withdrawal
>f American influence from the Far
East, recognition of Japanese mii-
ary, diplomatic and economic con-
luests of the past decade, and acqu-
oscence in Japan's "new order" for
treater East Asia.

vette designed to fight U-boats.
(If U-boats reach Nova Scotian
waters, they would be adjacent to
areas of the United States. The West-

miles from the easternmost point of
