Jr. (center), head of the American Delegation, and Sir Alexander
Cadogan (right), British delegates' chairman, who welcomes the
envoy on his arrival at National Airport in Washington, D. C. from
Russia with members of his delegation. The four-nation conference

Lange Predicts Continuance of
Red Collective Security Policy
Town Liberated After
Four Year Occupation

WITH THE FRENCH MAQUIS
OVER 100 MILES INLAND FROM
THE RIVIERA BEACHHEAD, Aug.
21- (Delayed) -(AP)-High in the
lower Alps, French forces of the in-
terior came out of the brush and
woods from which they get the name
"Maquis" and descended on a Ger-
man-garrisoned village last night.
Today the town is liberated after
four years. Nearly 1,000 prisoners
were taken in and around the moun-
tain-pass town, which nestles at the
end of a long, green valley.
Motley men of the Maquis stormed
the city at sundown. Obviously sur-
rounded, most of the German garri-
son surrendered following parleys
with American officers working with
the FFI. However, fighting burst out
here and there and one group of
combined German army and Gestapo
personnel barricaded themselves in
the big stone schoolhouse in the mid-
dle of the village square.
Led by such men as a 20-year-old
French patriot who had been sen-
tenced to be shot this morning and
had just been liberated from a Ges-
tapo prison a few moments before,
the Maquis unleashed four years of
pent-up rage, stormed across the open
courtyard, kicked down the barri-
cades and killed or captured the Ger-

Quarantine on Dogs
In1 Washtcniaw Ends
A 90-day quarantine of dogs in
Washtenaw County came to an end
yesterday as Dr. Otto K. Engelke,
county health officer, revealed that
only two reports of suspected rabies
cases among dogs in the county were
made during the past month.
The quarantine, imposed' last
spring when as high as 40 reports of
rabid dogs were made a month, was
lifted simultaneously throughout 17
other southeastern and c en t r a 1
Michigan counties, Engelke said.

The end of the war in Europe and
the closest presidential election since
1916 both occurring this November,N
should make that month the mostC
important in the history of the Unit-
ed States, Prof. Preston W. Slosson
said yesterday in the final current1
events discussion of the summer ses-
Professor Slosson has been lead-
ing up to a definite statement of
the war's end for several weeks,
and his prediction yesterday was
substantiated by the fact that the
German armies are being swiftly
surrounded in both eastern and
"The most important battles in
the history of the human race are
now being fought by the largest
armies ever assembled at one time

in France, Italy, and Russia," he
"I expect that the war with Japan
will take on an immensely accelerat-
ed tempo now, and it will be a matter
of only ten or twelve months before
it is over. We must reach the break-
ing point, and then Japan will crum-
ble rapidly. We should see the end
of the war in the Far East by Novem-
ber, 1945," he predicted.
As for the presidential election,
"so far, it has been very dull,"
Prof. Slosson remarked, "but I pre-
dict that the political battle in
November will be the closest elec-
tion since 1916. The result will
primarily depend upon the size of
the total vote cast. If the voting
is heavy, Roosevelt will win; if it
is light, Dewey will be elected,"
Prof. Slosson said.
To justify his predictions, Prof.
Slosson pointed out that the two
fortresses of FDR's strength, the lab-
or force and the young people, will
probably cast less than a normal
vote in the November election. It
can hardly be contended that the
soldier vote will be the deciding fac-
tor in Roosevelt's election; it is the
vote of the young pepole, soldier or
civilian, which Roosevelt depends
upon," Slosson indicated.
"With the decrease in the labor
and youth vote, and the probable
increase in Dewey's rural and farm
vote, the election will narrow down to
a close struggle," 'Slosson said.
Slosson Sees European War
Near End, Pacific in 1945
The Soviet Union will continue its
present policy of collective security
and alliance with the democracies
and the liberal elements in the capi-
talist countries, Prof. Oscar R. Lange
said Monday in Rackham Amphi-
theatre in his discussion of "The
Soviet Union and World Politics."
"Collective security will be based
on an alliance of the great powers
and will be bolstered in eastern
Europe by a kind of Good Neighbor
Policy," Prof. Lange said. He re-
cently returned from a trip to the
USSR during which he conferred
with Stalin and other high offi-
cials. This policy, he explained,
would parallel that of the United
States with respect to the Western
Russia's major purpose, swift eco-
nomic reconstruction and further
internal development, supercedes her
interest in fostering international
communism, Lange pointed out. He
cited the dissolution of the Comin-
tern and the appeal by the Russians
to anti-fascist forces in occupied
countries as evidence.
The Soviet Union expects inter-
national collectivism as the conse-
quence of the failures inherent in
capitalism, said Lange. The USSR,
he believes, will act as an example
which will force the capitalist pow-
ers to adopt similar planned eco-
