.... ■UBICF’M
The Russians bombed two towns,
wounding three civilians.
There are tremendous physical
problems for the Finns as a result
of the treaty which takes historic
Viipuri and the whole Karelian
Isthmus into the Soviet union
makes a Russian inland lake of La
doga Europe’s greatest; leases Gi- 1
braltar-like Hanko to Russia for a '
naval and military base and pro- 1

A total of 450,000 evacuated resi
dents from the Isthmus and Ladoga
areas must be resettled and pro
vided for.
Cession of territory taken by Rus
sia and the withdrawal of Finnisli
troops will start March 15 and end
nn Anril 1ft
Hanko must be handed over
within ten days.
Tanner, however, said Finland in
tended to make every preparation
o£ her own to protect her new bor
ders.
Asked if she would be permitted
to fortify these borders under the
peace treaty, he asked: “Who is go
ing to stop us?”
“Our military commanders say all
borders are defensible,” he added.
The nickle mines of the north, he
asserted, remain in Finnish hands.
Tanner said the peace terms, de
spite the fact they were “unexpect
edly severe,” had to be accepted
"in the national interest.”
The Finnish army and the Fin
nisli people, he said, had done their
best against a vastly stronger foe.
“As we have no hope of securing
better terms by continuing the
war,” he said, “it has been preferred
to agree to the present terms rather
than continue a hopeless war.”
The war ended officialy at 11 a.
m- with fighting continuing righl
up to the moment of armistice.
Fags Lowered
After Tanner had given the nation
the first Finnish word of the capi
tulation, flags on all Finnish build
ings were lowered to half staff.
Women wept in the streets. News
of the end of the bitter fighting
brought no celebration, no scenes of
joy. Helsinki’s newspapers appear
ed with deep black borders.
The members of the government
who resigned in protest against ac
ceptance of the Russian terms were
War Minister Juho Niuukanen and
Minister of Education Uuno Han
nula.
For the future, Tanner appealed
for absr’.jte unity with which to
build a new Finland.
Finland has "been devastated be
fore,” he said, and her people “have,
ascended again.” The Finns can da
it yet another time, he added.
“It would be easily comprehen
sible,” Tanner declared, "if opinion
among Us were to be divided in re
gard to the decision now made.”
A funeral silence fell among
groups of Finns as they listened to
Tanner. The voice of Tanner him
self was tired. It was Red Russia’s
peace, not Finland’s.
Mothers took their children out
into the streets, safe for the first
time since last fall. Soft, glistening
new snow covered the ruins of many
homes.
Bodies In Snow
The snow covered the sharp edges
of shells of apartment houses. At
the front lay frozen bodies of fallen
soldiers.
“We have shown the path which
small nations must take in the face
of demands by dictator states," Tan
ner said.
It has not been our fault that
democratic states have been either
unwilling or unable to help us in
this unequal struggle.”
Tanner was specific about Sweden
and Norway and their course of neu
trality.
"All our efforts,” he said, "have
been hampered by one great de
ficiency. We are a small nation and

Doak Brothers ]
Rookie. Talent
By FRANK B. GILBRETH
RALEIGH, March 13—(A*)—Twen
y years ago, when Coach Chick
Poak tip-toed into the hospital room
md saw his first son, the proud pap
rrinned a grin a mile long and
vhispered to his wife:
"Boy-oh-boy, there's my catcher.”
Two years later, when another boy
vas born, Chick grinned again and
vhispered:
"And there’s my pitcher.”
The two boys still were in three
:ornered pants when Chick started
:oaching varsity baseball at N. C.
State, but it was decided at that
:ime they would go to State and
play for their father. Chick looked
'orward plenty to the day when his
ions would be out there on the field,
tnd he’d be on the sidelines coaching
:hem.
This spring, the Doak brothers are
perhaps the leading sophomore base
ball candidates at State. Charles
Wilson Doak, the older, is a catch
er; Robert Renfrew Doak, the
younger, is a pitcher.
But Coach Chick Doak, at 55, is
no longer head baseball coach—he’s
assistant professor of physical edu
cation. He relinquished the coach
ing job this spring to Williams
(Doc) Newton, who also is head
football coach.
The rest of the story about State’s
1940 baseball team is cut-and-dried.
The nine should finish about where
fraction of the forces which have
been set rolling against us.
“Because of this, the same men
have had to remain under fire the
whole time. And even the pluckiest
troops gradually become weary.
Gaps, too, are always caused in the
ranks of war. Thus we were in
sore need of reinforcements.
“But these have not b.;en forth
coming ... we have continued to
send out appeals for help in over
coming this deficiency.
“Our neighbors, the Scandinavian
states, for whom it would have been
the easiest for geographical reasons
to send troops to our aid, have not
regarded themselves as being in a
position to do so.
“The attitude of neutrality adopt
ed by them has prevented them from
doing so- Numerous inquiries and
appeals in these quarters led to no
result.
“A negative answer in this respect
was even made public with great
harm to the military position of this
country.”
Britain and France offered to send
troops and were ready to do so, Tan
ner said, as soon as Finland asked
for them.

T. R. Jones, superintendent of the

Rountree, Jr„ urged a further ad
vancement of the Port of Wilming
:on through increased facilities for
shipping interests using the local
port.
"North Carolina consumes 500 mil
ion gallons of motor fuel annual
y,” Jones said, “and 66 per cent or
130 million gallons are shipped
;hrough the Port of Wilmington,
with 45 per cent by truck and 55 per
;ent by rail.”
Jones said 150 million gallons of
gasoline are consumed annually in
^orth Carolina, of which amount
;he local port ships out approximate
y 70 per cent. The advantages of
sayrolls. and shipping facilities of
he local port, and the need for more
squitable freight rates out of Wil
nington were cited by Jones.

Newton, an experienced baseball ,
coach who guided the Gastonia ,
American Legion Juniors to a na

talent on hand. Never unduly opti; i

about his chances in the Southern ,

"We haven’t got a prayer,” is the
way he puts it. "Not a prayer.”
Lost from the 1939 squad are O.
F. Peatross, catcher; A. H. Green
and Pete Bruinooge, pitchers; Bill
Hoyle and John Hendren, second
basemen; Bob Walker, third base
man; and Adolph Honeycutt and
Billy Griffin, outfielders.
Returning varsitymen are Oader
Harris, captain and first baseman;
Pat Fehley, Cutie Carter and Her
man Ritter, catchers; Sammy Kauf
man, Ray Smith and Delmore Har
per, pitchers; Barry Griffith and
Fred Broyhill, shortstops; Bill Mor
rison and Don Hamilton, third base
men; and Wade Brown, outfielder.
Kaufman is a good hitter, and
probably will play in the outfield
when he isn’t pitching. Morrison
suffered a broken shoulder early last
season, but is in good shape this
year.
Coming up from the frosh, besides
the Doak brothers, are Norm Wig

TALKS WITH ITALY
(Continued From Page One)
fense budget revealed that Italy
has a million men under arms and
fortifications protecting the length
of her land frontiers, including
those facing Germany.
Power Increased
Soddu said Italy’s military power
had been increased since September
by creation of three new army
corps, 20 new divisions and 20 ad
ditional regiments of divisional ar
tillery. He sad army personnel had
been increased by recruiting 1,000
officers, 1,500 subalterns and 6,500
non-commissioned officers.
During the past year 30,000 re
serve officers received fresh train
ing and 18,000 specialists, tank and
truck drivers, were recruited.
Details of naval expansion were
not given.
Italians expressing government
views accepted Finland’s peace with
Russia as inevitable. While they ad
mired the Finns’ “heroic resistance’’
they said Helsinki acted wisely
since Finland never had a chance
against Russia’s numerical superi
ority.
11 Giornale D’ltalia, like other
papers, said the “100 days kar” end
e dat the “right time” with honor
for the Finns. Some commentators
termed the peace a diplomatic suc
cess for Germay and the Scandi
navian countries. All agreed Russia
had turned the Baltic sea into a
Russian lake.

Pull the Trigger on
Lazy Bowels, and Also
Pepsin-ize Stomach!
When constipation brings on acid indi
gestion, bloating, dizzy spells, gas, coated
tongue, sour taste, and bad breath, your
stomach is probably loaded up with cer
tain undigested food and your bowels don't
move. So you need both Pepsin to help
break up fast that rich undigested food in
your stomach, and Laxative Senna to pull
the trigger on those lazy bowels. So be
sure your laxative also contains Pepsin.
Take Dr Caldwell's Laxative, because its
Syrup Pepsin helps vou gain that won
derful stomachcomtort, while theLaxative
Senna moves youi bowels, 'tests prove the
power of Pepsin to dissolve those lumps of
undigested protein food which may linger
in your stomach, to cause belching, gastric
acidity and nausea. This is how pepsin
izing your stomach helps relieve it of such
distress. At the same time this medicine
wakes up lazy nerves and muscles in your
bowels to relieve your constipation. So see
how much better you feel by taking the
laxative that also puts Pepsin to work on
that stomach discomfort, too. Even fin
icky children love to taste this pleasant
family laxative. Buy Dr Caldwell’s Lax

in prosecution of the war against

Chamberlain's voice shook as he
told of the nation’s sympathy for
the Finns whose fight ‘‘will remain
alive in the memory of all peoples.”
No Requests Made
Although he said every Finnish
request for aid had “been answered”
he denied under Hore-Belisha's prob
ing that any “requests for men had
been made by the Finnish govern
ment.”
Firmly the prime minister insisted
“it always was understood that it
was for the Finnish government to
decide upon the course of action.”
Hore-Belisha then condemned the
government for pleading “as an ex
cuse for inaction a pure technicali
ty”—the absence of a direct public
appeal from Finland for troops. He
asked a full debate on the Finnish
honor Finland but offends the Eu-'
