CITY NEWCOMERS Four Additional Warehouses to Serve the Public Economical Rates Fully Responsible "33 Years of Service" Davies Urges Increase In Soviet War Relief By the Associated Presa. NEW YORK, May 8.—Joseph E. Davies, former Ambassador to the Soviet Union, chided the American people last night for the compara tively small amounb of war relief aid they had extended the Red armies which he said stood "at the ramparts of our civilization.” Mr. Davies, speaking at a dinner opening a campaign for $6,000,000 for medical supplies for Russia, praised the volume of promised1 military equipment being delivered to the Soviet ally but added: “The total amount of money which the American public has con tributed to Russian War Relief, Inc., is $1,400,000 in contrast to the $100,000,000 contributed to other countries abroad. “It is not enough to either satisfy the self respect of the great busi ness community of the United States or the great respect and honor which we have for those brave people who have given us the priceless gift of time by their heroic resistance of Hitler. We are the beneficiaries of their agonies. They are fighting on our side and holding the bastions of our defense on the eastern front on this very night.’’ L. Frank Co.
