In Production,

By Roosevelt
President Hits 'Misguided
Industrialists, Leaders
Of Labor' In Warning
Says U.S. Ready ;
To Go All The Way
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6. -(A)-
,While representatives of 35 nations
applauded, President Roosevelt pled-
ged today no "misguided" industrial-
ist or labor leader shall prevail against
America's defense production nd its
"unlimited commitment that there
shall be a free world."
Warning that United States was
prepared to go all the way to bring
about Hitler's downfall, the Chief
Executive told the final session of the
Intternational Labor Office Confer-
ence that this country must make'
"full sacrifices" now or postpone the
day of, real sacrifice-as did the.
French-until it is too late."
President Speaks
The President spoke from the east
room of the White House before 250
delegates to the conference estab-
lished by the League of Nations to
iipdove the ;standard of living of
workers the world over. His words
were broadcast over three networks
and to every other nation by short-.
wave. .
Repeatedly the delegates broke in-
to applause, their first when Mr.,
Roosevelt, speaking directly to repre-
sentatives of occupied lands, asked
them to transmit this pledge to their
"You have not been forgotten; you
will, not be forgotten."
President Also

said, think only of profits and "de-
liberately delay defense output by
using their 'economic power' to
force acceptance of their demands,
rather than use the established ma-
chinery for the mediation of indus-
trial, disputes.
"Yes, they are but few," he said,
measuring his words. "They do not
represent the great mass of Ameri-
can workers and employers. The
American people have made an un-
limited commitment that there shall

mitment no individual or group shall

Lack Of Two-Front War
Bolsters German Army
LONDON, Nov. 6--P)-Russia's
setbacks at the hands of the German
Army were laid by Premier Joseph
Stalin today primarily to the fact no
second front had been opened in
Europe by Great Britain-or the
United States.

"What is the cause of the tempo-
rary lack of success of the Red
Army?" Stalin inquired in a speech
broadcast to the world by the Moscow
radio. Then he said:
"One of the causes is definite lack
of a second front in Europe against
the German Fascists. ,
"The matter is that at the present l
time on the European continent there
are no armies of Great Britain or the
United States conducting war against
the German Fascist armies.
"Therefore, the Germans need not
divide their forces to conduct a war
on two fronts--on the west and in
the east."

Russia To Receive Arms-
In Lend-Lease Extension
President Grants' $1,000,000,000 Credit To Soviet;
Stalin Appoints Litvinoff Ambassador To U.S.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6-VP)-Pres-
ident Roosevelt threw the vast lease-
lendcoffers of the United States open
to Russia tonight, granting the Sovi-
ets a $1,000,000,000 credit, witout in-
terest, to buy weapons to battle Hit-
The announcement came unexpec-
tedly from the State Department
which made public correspondence in
which Joseph Stalin thanked Mr.
Roosevelt for this "unusually sub-
stantial aid" in the "great struggle,
against our common enemy, blood-
thirsty Hitlerism.'
Great Loan
Th great loan was announced only
a few hours after it became .known
that Maxim Litvinoff, former Soviet
Commissar for Foreign Affairs, had
been taken off the political shelf in
Russia, and named Ambassador to
the United States.
It was assumed Litvinoff's mission
would be to strive for greater aid for
his country. Whether he would urge
more active aid than credits was not
immediately known.
In announcing the credit, the State
Department made public a para-
phrase of a letter the President ad-
dressed to Stalin Oct. 30.
In it the President spoke of the
recent Moscow conference, attended
by American and! British representa-
tives, at which arrangements were
made to speed supplies to Russia.
cial difficulties," Mr. Roosevelt wrote,
immediate arrangements are to be
made so that supplies up to $1,000,-
000,000 in value may be effected un-
der the lease-lend act.

the U.S.S.R., I propose that the in-
debtedness thus incurred be subject

It was expected that most, if not
all, of the weapons and materials to
be bought with the $1,000,000,000
would be produced in this country,
although the announcement did not
say so definitely.
The Presidents note assured Stalin
all the "implications" of the Moscow
conference would be carried out to
the limit.
Stalin replied Nov. 4 that he deeply
appreciated this pledge, and went on
to agree completely with the terms
on which the $1,000,000,000 loan was
He also agreed to another pro-
posal by Mr. Roosevelt, that the So-

ments to sell the United States raw
materials and commodities urgently

Film' League

The Art Cinema League believes in

Acting on this principle, the

There Was
A Disturbance
Last Night,
The legal minds of the Phi Del-
ta Phi house said it was only
"nocturnal nonsense," but more
than 200 freshmen at the West
Quad and the local police would
term that a gross understatement.
There was a fracas between the
freshmen and the lawyers late last
night caused by some derogatory
cat-calls arising from members of
the two factions--who cat-called
first is not known definitely.
At any rate, the lawyers, who
were playing football in the street
below the dorm, proved irritating
-or possibly tempting game-and
the Class of '45 swarmed from the
West Quad en masse.
Faced with overwhelming odds,
the lawyers executed a strategic
retreat into the Phi Delta Phi for-
Heroes to the end, (when the

not they who summoned the
guardians of the peace, but some
sensitive coeds in the neighboring

Phi Delta windows broken, one
Phi Delta garden hose stolen, and

(By The Associated Press) i <
The Germans appeared last night
to have about given up for the for-
seeable future their efforts to take
Moscow and Leningrad and there,
were plausible suggestions that Hit-
ler was preparing to turn the mfain
force of his northern and central
armies southward soon to join his
already immense southern columns
in a great struggle for the Caucasus
and the Crimea.
First, there was a reports by British
informants that most of the German
aerial squadrons were being with-
drawn from both the Moscow and
Leningrad fronts, some being sent
directly to the south and others go-
ing ba~,k to Germany for refitting
and reorganization of pilot person-
This substantial concession of fail-
ure for the Leningrad and Moscow
offensives-so London described it
and is, indeed, it seemed to be on
the basis of the, available infor-
mation-was attributed principally
to the inability of the air arm to
smash the extremely strong Russian
outer defenses before Moscow and
Leningrad as it had done in so many
other theatres. The British thought,
too, that the task of supplying ad-
vanced aerial bases over 1,500 miles
of hard-contested communication
lines had proved too great.
Second, in Berlin itself there was
speculation of the possibility of a
grand offensive down uponi the broad
Caucasian. Isthmus between the Azov
and Caspian Seas. An operation of
such scope would imply the use not
only of the existing southern Ger-
man Armies, which are approaching
the Caucasus from the west, but, a
thrust to the south of the strong
forces now all but immobilized before
Leningrad and Moscow.

KUIBYSHE, Russia, Nov. 6.-
(- The Red Army was reported

tion of Volokolamsk, advancing as

and throwing a large German force
into retreat.

fact something worse-would sharply
weaken the northern German wing
and quite possibly would permit the
reopening of the railway line runiing
from Murmansk to Leningrad.
The Finns are understood to have
cut that line in some points-and it
is prospectively at least a vital supply
route-or at any rate to be command-
ing it in those areas.
"It is realized that our frontiers
cannot finally be determined until
the coming peace conference," said
the Finnish announcement. This
could be read to mean that the Finns
expected such discussions soon, but
there has been nothing to indicate
any such development.
Finland Insists,
Finland has insisted all along that
it was fighting Russia not as an out-
and-out German ally, but only to se-
cure its frontiers for the future and
to regain certain territory taken from
it in the past by the Soviet Union.
