Detroiters Ask
Milk Rationing
Meeting Sponsored by
Consumers Council
DETROIT, Nov. 5.-(P)-Agitation
for milk rationing in Detroit received
fresh support at a meeting of con-
sumers today in the course of which
policies of the Michigan Milk Pro-
ducers Association were assailed and
a "Wall Street" influence was al-
The meeting, sponsored by the
greater Detroit Consumers Council
and attended by farmers and repre-
sentatives of various organizations,
followed upon Governor Kelly's re-
cent conference hereon milk short-
ages in industrial areas.
At that time charges were made
that thepublic had been refused a
voice in the consultations.
Prof. Edward W. MacFarland of
the Consumers Council, who pre-
sided, said he had "yet to find any
producers' or distributors' associa-
tion that has even tried to cut out
wastefulness" in providing milk for
the consumers.
MacFarland, who is Professor of
Economics at Wayne University, as-
serted the Detroit retail price was
sufficient to give the farmer a "fair-
er and much higher price" if distrib-
utorstwould cease "waste of iasoline
and tires in needless duplication of

Oil Truck Explodes;
Five Houses Burned
GRAND RAPIDS, Nov. 5.-(')-
Flames towered 700 feet into the air
when a gasoline truck hit a tree and
exploded here early today, destroying
4,250 gallons of the precious fuel.
One house, fifty feet from the acci-
dent, was completely demolished.
Four other houses were scorched
while rivulets of the burning fluid ran
down US-16 wrecking portions of the
pavement and flames leaped 50 feet
to put telephone and electric light
wires out of commission.
Earl E. Darling, of Muskegon, driv-
er of the truck, escaped with minor

Mr. and Mrs. Harold Mulder, who
were sleeping on the first floor of the
destroyed house, heard the first blast
which blew in seven windows. They
rushed upstairs and rescued their
four children, herding them to safety
through a rear door. Mulder returned
to the second floor for clothing and
then entered the basement, manag-
ing to salvage 500 quarts of home
canned fruits and vegetables.
The qualifying round of the Stu-
dents Bridge. Championship will
be held at 2 p.m. Sunday in the
Grand Rapids room of the League.
Interested teams of two need only
appear at that time in order to
enter the contest.

Berlin Issues Official
Denial of Report, But
Speculation Continues
STOCKHOLM, Nov. 5.-()-Dr.
Juhu Paasikivi, Finnish diplomat
who once before helped negotiate a
peace with Russia, was reported to-
day preparing to go again to Moscow
on a similar mission, and while bffi-
cial denials came quickly they failed
to dispel rumors of new Finnish ef-
forts to quit the war.
The Swedish newspaper Social De-
mokraten, organ of the dominant
Swedish Party, reported that Paasi-
kivi, who aided in the first Russo-
Finnish peace negotiations in 1940,
had been instructed ti leave for Mos-
Official denials-which might be
expected at this state whether the re-
ports are true or not-were reported
soon afterward by Berlin and by the
Stockholm newspaper Aftonbladet
which quoted a foreign office spokes-
man as saying the report was "abso-
lutely false."
Berlin Radio told of a newspaper
interview with Paasikivi himself in
which the aged former Minster to
Russia was quoted as saying he knew
nothing about the report.
But secrecy is paramount if any
agreement is to be reached and there
was considerable speculation in well
informed Swedish quarters that an
iniportant development may come
with the suddeness of the Moscow
peace announcement made in 1940.
(The report was accepted without
skepticism in London.)
Social Demokraten said Paasikivi
would be followed to Moscow by K.
A. Fagerholm, Minister of Social Af-
fairs and George A. Gripenberg, Fin-
land's Minister to Sweden. It specu-
lated that the United States and
Sweden had helped arrange the par-
ley as Finland's food and political
situation reached a critical stake in
more than two years of war.
Gripenberg, Minister to Sweden,
will return to Helsinki Sunday to re-
port to Ryti and, while the trip is re-
ported as routine, Finland's ace dip-
lomat and nephew of Field Marshal
Baron Carl Gustaf Mannerheim has
been surveying avenues to peace.

There was bad news for japan last
night from Washington as well as
from the South Pacific, while Ger-
many reeled under multiple blows
by land, sea and air.
On top of the Moscow Conference
from which was born the vitally sig-
nificant Anglo - American - Russian-
Chinese operational agreement has
been worked out at Chungking weeks
or months sooner than had been
hoped for in Washington and Lon-
don. It is designed, by President
Roosevelt's definition, to unify Unit-

throughout the whole continent of
Asia from Burma to the Russian bor-
Bracketed with a Washington dis-
closure that the long-awaited Amer-
ican super bombers-B-29-are rea-
dy for battle action test, the Chung-
king agreement takes on special sig-
nificance. The undisclosed but sub-
stantially increased radius of action

and stepped-up gun power of the
monster-bombers earmark them for
the Pacific-Asiatic theatre, where
distances are the greatest.
Nazi held regions of Europe, in-
cluding all Germany itself, are al-
ready under Allied bomb fire, from

someone suggested the girls might

"Oh, it won't be that bad," he said.
