Finnish Territory •
Will Become New
Soviet Republic
Russian Parliament Is
Called for March 29
To Create New Stare
By the Associated Press.
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;

DALLAS, March 15.—Thomas

ident of the Dallas Bar Association

half-century ago.
