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.’’

PITTSBURGH.—BOY GRIEVES AT LOSING DOG—Wendell
Glaab, 8, takes a last sorrowful look at a dog that had been his
pal for seven months. Judge Andrew T. Park ordered the dog,
which the boy’s father had found, returned to Mrs. Sydney M.
Kelsea, the original owner. In the Judge’s private chambers
here Mrs. Kelsea holds Wendell’s hand in a vain effort to com
fort him. Judge Park’s offer to buy the lad another dog didn’t
cheer him. —A. P. Wirephoto.

for the C. I. O. Steel Worker* Organ
ization Committee, said the Gov
ernment had been notified of the
failure of all efforts to put the plant
back into production on high pri
ority orders for the Army and Navy.
Mr. Anderson said he was in
formed that a group of union mem
bers had sent a telegram to Presi
dent Roosevelt asking the Federal
Government to take over the $3,- |
000,000 plant where 1,200 workers
are idle.
Mr. Anderson, who said the strike |
was not authorized, listed demands
of the strikers as job classification,
a 15 per cent differential between
day and night shifts and increased
wages for skilled labor, ranging from
10 to 30 per cent. The present pay
scale is 72’2 cents an hour.
Meanwhile, 110 workers who
walked off the Job at the Bethlehem
Co 's plant near Harrisburg yester
day voted to return to work today.
