WASHINGTON, May 5.-(1P)-The
United States has sent Russia "sev-
eral thousand planes," "many tens
of thousands" of trucks, jeeps and
other military vehicles, and over one
million tons of foodstuffs.
This was disclosed today by lend-
lease administrator Edward R. Stet-
tinius, Jr., in his most detailed report
on the extent of this country's assis-
tance to Russia. Altogether, ship-
ments up to April 1 aggregated 3,-
500,000 long tons,,he said, and were
valued at $1,825,477,000. A long ton
is 2,240 pounds.
In the first three months of 1943
shipments were 35 per cent greater
than in the preceding quarter, and
more than twice the total shipped in
the corresponding period of 1942,
The overwhelming majority of
lend-lease shipments have reached
Russia, Stettinius said, adding that
losses were suffered principally on
the north Russian route, and a large
proportion of the supplies are moving
by the Persian Gulf route.
The lend-lease administrator re-
ported that among other items sent
to Russia were:
Thousands of tons of steel and
armor plate, copper, brass, alumin-
um, zinc, TNT, toluol and other
chemicals, large quantities of rail-
road rail, signal and other communi-
cations equipment, and smaller quan-
tities of electric furnaces, presses,
forging hammers, and other machine
Along with aircraft and motor ve-
hicles, food shipments now hold the
top priority, Stettinius said. Most
lend-lease shipments of dehydrated
vegetables are going to Russia along
with wheat flour, sugar, canned
meats, dried peas and beans, lard and
vegetable oils. So that the Russians
may produce food in newly-developed
agricultural areas, this country also
has shipped 8,000 tons of seeds.
Divided as to value, shipments in-
clude: ordnance, $280,891,000; air-
craft, $328,975,000; tanks, $179,820,-
000; motor vehicles, $229,822,000;
watercraft, $27,888,000; industrial
products, $461,348,000, and agricul-
tural products, $316,733,000.

Veal rea t
By MARY RONAY
Between fervent motions of his
hands and rapid-fire conversations
in Italian with his manager, Salva-
tore Baccaloni, world famous basso
buffo, yesterday expressed an opti-
mistic future-for the classic opera.
"The modernists are so afraid that
the critics are going to say that their
operas are based on the classic form,"
Baccaloni declared, "that they have
gone back to the theory of composi-
tion. Their music is then without
melody-there is no emotional ap-
With dramatic gestures to his
heart and to his head, Baccaloni said
that classic opera will always remain
popular because it touches the feel-
ings of the audience. People want
melody, music that will live for them.
"The modernists have not done this,"
Although Baccaloni's English vo-
cabulary is limited to such phrases
as "good morning," "good after-
noon" and "I don't speak English
very well," he was able through his
manager and by the quick move-
ments of his face and hands to put
understandable emphasis to what he
Especially was this so when Bacca-
loni described his visit to Fort Reilly.
He said he wanted to ride in a tank,
but just wasn't able to squeeze his
300 pounds into one. A jeep was
finally compromised on to give him
a taste of Army transportation. At
this moment, Baccaloni bounced him-
self up and down on the Union couch
to show exactly what had happened.
Baccaloni has given many per-
formances before soldiers ' and for
various relief organizations. He has
his own company and with Bacca-
loni joining the cast give selected
acts from favorite operas. Because
he studied to be an architect and
has done a lot of painting, Bacca-
loni designed all the sets and equip-
ment for his productions.
"I am very grateful at this time
of war that I am qualified to be a
comic character," Baccaloni said.
"It is very hard to entertain soldiers,
some acts that you would think would
be popular don't come off. That they
were able to laugh at me justifies the
roles I play."
His manager then explained that
Baccaloni had gotten expressions
down to such an art that even the
stern Mitropoulos had to laugh. Bac-
caloni started a grim rehearsal with
the famous conductor who in his
usual serious fashio4 was concentrat-
ing on the selection. Mitropoulos
turned to give him a cue and then
Women Trained to Fill

Increasing demand for trained per-
sonnel to fill vacancies in the Ameri-

cation. Requirements include one

catching one of Baccaloni's expres-
sions burst out laughing with such
vigor that he wasn't able to go on
This was Baccaloni's first appear-
ance in Ann Arbor, and he encoun-
tered only one difficulty with the
local environment-the same trouble'
that Mrs. Rachmaninoff had last
year. The trouble was in the person
of George, the conscientious door-
keeper at the Union. Although Bac-
caloni's wife tried to explain that
she wasn't an offensive character,
she had to learn the hard and fast
rules of this institution.

To complete tabulation and make
further contacts. the United Jewish
Appeal Drive now being conducted
on campus was extended five days,
chairman Herb Levin, '43M, said
According to the original plan the
drive was to have ended yesterday,
but Levin pointed out the need of
additional contacts to insure fulfill-
ment of the campus quota of $1,000.
Campaign captains reported at a
meeting yesterday at Hillel that the
drive has passed the half way mark.
