ussian Army Captures Enemy Stronghold Near

Stronger Chinese-American
Relationship Observed by Gale

Editor's Note: Three films on con-
temporary China will be shown next
Saturday at the Rackham Auditorium.
In anticipation of this, a series of ar-
ticles representing the opinions of a
number of people who are especially
interested in China, will appear in The
Daily,. The first of these, which ap-
pears below, is by Dr. Esson M. Gale,
director of the International Center,
as told to The Daily.
Like all old friends who find thehn-
selves in mutual straits, China and
America are becoming better ac-
quainted with each other than ever
before. This is one of the more use-
ful by-products of the war.
The process of knowing each other
better is at times painful. Gone are
the days of romanticising our great
sister republic across the Pacific.
Thousands of American ground forc-
es, technicians and airmen are see-
ing China with their own eyes. It
is an utterly unanticipated world for
most of them.
Previous Knowledge Abstract
American knowledge of China hith-
erto, save for a favored few mission-
aries and businessmen, has been ab-
stract, based upon the individual
viewpoint and experiences of return-
ing lecturers. Some of these had

specific axes to grind and adapted
their picture of China to their ob-
Certainly the system of mutual aid
cannot be effective unless each of
us takes a strictly realistic attitude
towards the problems of sucessfully
conducting the war. While Ameri-
can military representatives are see-
ing West China suffering from infla-
tion, from acute shortages of com-
modities and in many other respects
from the effects of a protracted war,
the sterling qualities of the Chinese
people canot but impress them.
Educational Exchanges Praised
On the other hand, the cultural
exchange involving the visits of pro-
fessors from Chinese universities and
the continued arrival, though now re-
duced to a mere trickle due to trans-
portation difficulties, of Chinese stu-
dents in this country continue to pro-
vide the Chinese with first-hand in-
formation oftheir friends and allies,
the people of the United States.
As a factor in this process of get-
ting better acquainted, the Chinese
Student Club at the University will
sponsor a showing of three films on
contemporary China. These will be
shown next Saturday at the Rackham

Reds Renew
Fight at North
End of Front
Nazis Repeat Attacks
Near Stanislawow
By The Associated Press
LONDON, May .20, Saturday -
Moscow announced early today that
the Red Army was attacking in the
Vitebsk area of White Russia and
had captured a fortified Nazi strong-
hold in that vicinity after a fierce
two-hour battle.
This disclosure of renewed ac-
t vity on the northern end of the
long front, made in the broadcast
supplement to the Russian com-
munique, was accompanied by Red
Army reports of repeated Nazi
assaults on Soviet positions near
Stanislawow in old Poland.
Five hundred Germans also were
killed, the supplement said, during
Nazi efforts to wedge into the Soviet
lines near Tiraspol on the Dniester.-
The Baltic Red air fleet set fire to
the Finnish port of Kotka without
loss and other Soviet planes bagged
seven Nazi aircraft and two patrol
vessels in a sweep off the northern
coast of Norway, Moscow said.
The Soviet communique said
there were no essential changes
during the day along the eastern
land front, noting simply that 43
enemy planes were shot down. But
there were several indications that
the Rusians were preparing for at
new offensive.
From the German side there wasP
increasing propaganda emphasizing
the weight of an imminent Soviett
onslaught, and there was stepped-upI
bombing of Russian supply lifelinest
in east Poland.C
Although the Germans made much
of air attacks at Sainy and RowesandE
other nerve centers in that area,t
there was nothing to indicate that4
the raids were any more severe thani
the blows struck by Red fliers re-
cently against the enemy's weakened1
feeder routes for men and munitions.
New Budget Is

The City Council Thursday night
unanimously approved a revised
1944-45 city budget calling for the
expenditure of $673,975.88, higher
than last year's budget by $64,520-
.88 and the largest in the city's his-
Aldermen who had previously ap-
proved tentativ~ely a budget totaling
$696,575.88 for 1944-45 while acting
as a committee of the whole pared
this estimate by $22,600 in the new
During a towvn meeting last Satur-
day, residents of the city, by a vote
of 156 to 141, refused to raise the
tax rate. A motion was defeated
which would have permitted holding
another town meeting before June 1,
at which time the voters would again
discuss the question of raising the
tax rate.

A t t h e S a e . . .
"Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,"
technicolor feature opening today at
the State Theatre, co-stars Maria
Montez, John Hall and Turhan Bey.
Edmund L. Hartmann, who wrote
the original screen play, describes the
movie as "fiction in that we have
taken liberties with the character
of Ali Baba, and written a new tale
about him-one designed purely as
entertainment. It is fantasy in its
treatment of 'Open Sesame' and the
40 casks. It is fact in that our story
is based on historical accuracy."
The original musical score for "Ali
Baba and the Forty Thieves" was
written by Edward Ward. J. Kiern
Brennan wrote the lyrics for the
thieves' theme song, "Forty and One
for All."

Brumfield and Brumfield, 308 S.

(AP)-On a hill overlooking the Verdi-
gris Valley, where Will Rogers hoped
some day to settle down among the
homespun folks he liked the best, his.
body will be brought to its final rest-
ing place.
Private Ceremony Planned
The time of the body's arrival is
being kept secret to avoid curious
crowds. A brief private ceremony
will be conducted beside the crypt
with attendance limited.
Arrangements to move the body
from Glendale, where it has rested
since 1935, the year Rogers and Wiley
Post were killed in a plane crash in
Alaska, were made by the Will Rogers
Memorial Commission.
The Will Rogers Memorial, a native
stone structure in rambling ranch-

house style, was built in 1938 and
dedicated on Rogers' birthday anni-
versary November 4 that year. The
crypt is on a gently sloping terrace
in front of the main building.
Is Proposed Home Site
It commands a sweeping view of
the valley where the great actor and
writer was born and rode the ranges
before his adventurous spirit took
him off on the road to fame and
Rogers purchased the land many
year ago, intending to build a home
there after his retirement.
"When I'm old and the world is
tired of my act," he said then, "I'll
build a home on this hill and just
sit here and whittle and gab with!
my friends until the big boss stages
the last roundup and heads us strays
into the home corral."
