U. S. Places 84 Finnish
Companies on Blacklist


Two Firms Are Head ed
B Cabinet Members
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, June 3. - The
United States, seeking to force Fin-
land to break its alliance with Ger-
many, tonight blacklisted 84 Finnish
firms including two headed by mem-
bers of the Helsinki cabinet.
The action, the most drastic taken
against Finland in many months
means the Finns will suffer economic
penalties after as well as during the
War under the new policy of continu-
ing the blacklist in operation in the
post-war period. The 84 firms are
the first to be placed on the American
One of the firms listed bore the
name of Bruno rProcope, identified
ing official +quarters as the cousin
of the Finnish minister here, Hjal-
mar J. Procope.
The two cabinet officers in-
volved in the blacklisting operation
are the foreign minister, Henrick
Rarnsay, and the minister of de-
fense, Gen. Rudolf Waldexn.
Ramsay was named in official
quarters as chairman of the Board of
Finland-Hamburg Befraktningskon-
tor which was described here as a
shipping agency and center of Nazi
propaganda in Finland. Walden was
described as owner of a paper and
carton firm called Paperituote.
The same blacklist supplement
issued tonight also listed 53 Swedish
concerns. It was announced several
days ago that 38 Swedish firms would
be on the list. The additional 15, it
was learned, consist of eight firms
previously put on the British black-
list but not on the American list and'
seven others described here 'as among
the important business organizations
in Sweden.
Americans are forbidden to deal
with blacklist companies.
It was thus brought out that the
United States in the last few days has
reinforced its policy of playing a
strong hand with the Swedes. j
The effect of the action was viewed
here as an economic knife slashing
into the vitals of Finland's early
post-war recovery and trade pros-
Meanwhile the United States
continues to maintain diplonatic
°elattions with Finland and has its
legation in Helsinki although no
minister has been on active duty
for many months. The question of
breaking relations has come up for
consideration ion one or two occa-
sions but the decision has been
negative in the hope that by con-
tinuing to remain friendly with
F'inland the United States might
be able to pry her loose from Ger-

Orchestra and Little Symphony, will
conduct the Concert Band in the
University's football March, "The
