WEEK IS PRAISED
Red Cross Official Cites
Advantages of Not Being
an ‘Aquatic Liability.’
Several advantages of knowing how
to swim, particularly from a safety
atandpoint. were emphasized yester
day by Commodore Wilbert E. Long
fellow, assistant national director of
First Aid and Life Saving Service.
American Red Cross, in indorsing the
men's leam-to-swim campaign to be
conducted by the Young Men’s Chris
tian Association, in co-operation with
The Star.
"I am mighty glad to indorse the
leam-to-swim campaign of the Wash
ington Y. M. C. A. for men, and hope
that a capacity crowd of adults takes
advantage of the opportunity to be
come properly introduced to the art
of awimming,” Commodore Longfel
low said.
"It is sort of unfortunate," he added,
“that so many men now living in
Washington have had to grow up
without having learned to swim. We
have so many fine waterways near
here that call us to indulge in rowing,
canoeing, motor boating, sailing and
aquaplaning that it is tough not to
have the basic skill that would enable
us to enjoy any or all of these fine
sports without worrying about a spill.”
Commenting further on the cam
paign, Commodore Longfellow said,
in part:
"This learn-to-swim week gives a
ehance for a fellow who has not been
properly Introduced to the water to
get acquainted with a lot of chaps
equally uninformed about it, as fel
low learners.
"Signing up for these swimming
lessons at the Y. M. C. A. may mean
you will get the key of the sea handed
you, without costing you a cent, and
get such a start that by the end of
the summer you can be an aquatic
expert instead of an aquatic liability
for any one to take on a boat trip.”
The free course in swimming instruc
tion will begin Wednesday at the Cen
tral Y. M. C. A.. 1736 G street K.W,
under expert instructors. All appli
cants for the course are urged to regis
ter not later than Tuesday. Besides
instruction on Wednesday, lessons will
be given on Thursday and Friday of
this week and on Monday, Tuesday
and Wednesday of next week.
Colored applicants will be registered
and taught to swim at the Twelfth
Street Y. M. C. A. Branch, 1816

DAVIES WON’T TALK
ON STALIN PARLEY
Interview Is Revealed in Rare
Communique From Office of
Communist Leader.
By the Associated Press.
MOSCOW, June 6.—United States
Ambassador Joseph E. Davies kept
diplomatic silence today after his two
hour talk on world affairs with Joseph
Stalin.
Stalin, secretary general of the Com
munist party, but with no official title
in Soviet Russia’s government, dis
closed the interview in a rare com
munique. But he, too, was careful to
avoid making public any details.
Pravda, the Communist party
paper, however, prominently published
on its first page Stalin's brief an
nouncement of his meeting yesterday
with Mr. Davis, the first occasion for
such a communique as far as diplomats
could remember. It merely said:
"On June 5 United States Ambas
sador Davies was received by Com
rade Molotoff with Comrade Stalin
present. The conversation lasted two
hours.”
