MOSCOW, March 15.—Immediate organization of ceded Finnish terri tory into an autonomous Soviet Socialist republic was considered today to be the principal task of the Supreme Soviet of the TJ. S. S.TT., convoked for March 29. The summons to the Parliament, coming three days after the peace treaty, led informed observers to predict that after formal ratification of the pact the Supreme Soviet would act speedily to establish Com munist rule in what the government newspaper Izvestia termed a former “anti-Soviet war base.” Territory May Be Split. This reference to the Karelian Isthmus, where Finland bore the brunt of the Russian assault, prompted one observation that war lost Finnish land would be strategi cally split. The isthmus would be assimilated by the Leningrad mili tary district, according to this view, and the remainder of the ceded ter ritory, the northern shores of Lake Ladoga and Eastern •central r.a land, would be incorporated into the existing Karelian Soviet Republic, northeast of the isthmus itself. In the absence of official com ment, however, most observers pre dicted one separate republic would be created for the occupied areas. In demanding concessions on the Isthmus, pre-war negotiators for Moscow pointed out that Leningrad, less than 30 miles from the former Finnish frontier, was within artil lery range of the Mannerheim Line. Leningrad, moreover, was the seat of the Finnish campaign. Would Keep Local Government. In keeping with the policies of Nikolai Lenin, father of the Russian revolution, and Joseph Stalin, his successor, the formation of a Soviet republic in the ceded Finnish areas would promise local self-government and preserve the language and cul tural institutions of the regions. The Supreme Soviet last met in November to incorporate into the U. S. S. R. Western Ukraine and Western White Russia, former Polish areas.

Manufacturers' Head Urges Government End Experiments Halt Confusion and Uncertainty, Is Plea Of Prentis By the AuocUted Prtu. PITTSBURGH, March 15.—H. W. Prentis, Jr., of Lancaster, Pa., pres ident of the National Association of Manufacturers, told 500 industrial ists from the Ohio-West Virginia Pennsylvania area last night indus try can take great strides toward economic recovery, if there is an end to "further experiment, confu sion and uncertainty.” Mr. Prentis, president of the Arm strong Cork Co., discussing what he termed the tendency of Govern ment to absorb private enterprise, said: "When Government ceases to be merely an umpire and with the full strength of its dominating author ity steps into the game itself, many a player concludes his chances to win are so greatly diminished a seat on the sidelines is preferable.” Mr. Prentis asserted the belief the tri-State area now would have been out of the “economic fog" if N. R. A. had ben permitted to remain dead. “But it would not stay dead,” he continued, and now we have: "The Walsh-Healey Act, under which the Secretary of Labor is em powered to tell industry how to run its business if it would participate in Government contracts. “The Bituminous Coal Act, clear ly designed to regiment that great Industry. "The Wagner Act and Its National Labor Relations Board, whicfe we were assured would bring peace to industry. Instead * the ad ministration of the present law has brought strife, controversy and con fusion. "The Pair Labor Standards Act wages and hours—which (admirable though its objective may be) further hamstrings much legitimate activ ity in industry and commerce. “The Robinson-Patman Act which attempts to regiment the countless millions of sales transactions that occur in America every day.” With all of these “so-called little N. R. As” Mr. Prentis said unem ployment remains an unsolved problem. Thomas Holloway Dies; Close Friend of Wilson By the Auocisted Pres*.
