To Win Both War and Peace Aim at Moscow Bv RICHARD G. MASSOCK, Associated Press Foreign Correspondent. LONDON, Oct. 21.—Agreement or the whole range of mintary and eco nomic problems involved in co-ordi nating Allied strategy to win bott the war and the peace is regarded here as the ultimate objective of the tripartite conference in Moscow. Definite ways and means of de feating Germany, encouraging a democratic successor to Hitlerism and controlling Germany's militaris tic tendencies after the war pre sumably are among the complex is sues before the conference. The Allied attitude toward at least two kings—George of Greece and Peter of Yugoslavia—not tc mention young King Simeon of Bul garia, also is expected to figure in the frank discussions. Military aspects of the conference appear to be secondary, notwith standing Russian insistence on the immediate opening of a front in Western Europe and the view of the Soviet press than military questions should head the agenda. May Explain Delay. The assertion earlier this week by Field Marshal Jan Christiaan Smuts, prime minister of the Union of South Africa, that a "grand assault" on Hitler's European fortress would be made in 1944 seemed to dispose of that issue so far as London is con cerned. Although the conference is one ot diplomatic personalities, this does not preclude the generals who ac companied Secretary of State Hull and British Foreign Secretary Eden from explaining the reasons for the delay in an amphibious attack from the west. The British recognize, however, that military strategy must figure in the discussions to the extent that the timely defeat of Germany is es sential to the application of any pre arranged plan for political reform in that country. It likewise figures in plans for German-occupied and satellite countries. The Moscow publication War and the Working Classes has warned that a prolonged war would bring the risk of revolutionary upheavals in the latter which would be difficult to control. Russia Cautions About AMG. The London Economist inter preted this as a suggestion that Russia might be able to “act as a force of law and order in Europe if the war is brought to an early con clusion," but that she "may have to wash her hands if by unduly pro longing the war the Allies them eel ves let loose revolution." In the field of Allied agencies the Russians want to invest the Mediter ranean commission in which they are represented with wider powers than those of a mere advisory body. The Russians also remain cautious about the AMG <Allied Military Government of Occupied Territo ries i setup in the Mediterranean, although they apparently are ready to assume co-responsibility if given certain assurances. They are ex pected to insist that it shall not function in liberated areas and that its ban on political activities be lifted in areas under its control. The question as to the Kings pre viously referred to hinges on differ ences among the Yugoslavs and Greeks as to whether their mon archies should be superseded by re publics. This is complicated in Yugoslavia by differences between the Com munist-supported Partisans of Drug Tito and the forces of Gen. Draja Mihailovich. Little difficulty is ex pected on this score, however, in view of the Soviet government’s ac NEW SCHOOL HEAD SWORN IN—Richmond W.

Senate Bloc Approves Bond Ad Restriction ' By the Associntfd Pres*. 1 Backers of a bill authorizing the Treasury to spend $30,000,000 an nually for War bond advertising in Snewspapers agreed yesterday to an amendment designed to keep "polit ical propaganda" out of the adver tisements. Senator Danaher. Republican, of Connecticut proposed such an amendment in a hearing before the Senate Banking Committee and it immediately was agreed to by Sena tor Bankhead. Democrat, of Ala bama, author of the bill. Senator Danaher exhibited a copy of a Third War Loan drive adver tisement prepared as a newspaper model by the Treasury Department and bearing a picture of President Roosevelt. "Here's an example of the kind of ads the Treasury would put in everv newspaper in the country, if no re strictions are put in this bill," Sen ator Danaher said. "Thew would use this to attempt to capitalize on the bond-selling campaigns for the benefit of incumbent officials. The people shouldn’t have to pay for ad vertisements containing pictures of political candidates." Phil Rich, publisher of the Mid land 'Mich.) Daily News, testifying at the time, said he thought pub lishers would not object to a definite restriction such as Senator Danaher proposed. ^ ceptance of King Victor Emmanuel in Italy. In all these questions the British ‘take pains to emphasize that there is no Bntish-American bloc con fronting the Russians, but that Mr. Hull and Mr. Eden represent sepa rate and sometimes divergent view points. With regard to the Medi terranean Commission, for instance, the British view leans more toward Russia than America. On the British-American side. Mr. Eden and Mr. Hull are expected to seek a Russian statement on the exact meaning of the "Free Ger many" Committee formed in Moscow of captured German officers and ref ugee German Communists, as well as the similar Free Poland, Rumania and Hungary Committees. Frontier questions apparently have been ruled out of tf>e discussion as far as the Russians and British are concerned. In the Soviet view. Russia claims only the territory which Moscow already has incor porated in the Soviet Union. The British government has expressed the view that frontiers should be left for settlement among all the powers after the war rather than piecemeal now.

Teachers whose status does not change from month to month will be paid always on the second ol each month. Teachers whose salary status is changed for any reason will be paid on the tenth of the month. These teachers will be noti fied of the impending delay. The change in the system of try ing to get all names on one roll was made by the board at its meeting yesterday. A large summer turnover delayed some teachers’ checks two weeks this month—without previous notification. Mrs. Velma G. Williams, chairman of the student activities committee, was asked by board members to take up in committee a proposal to lengthen the Christmas vacation four days to permit 1.600 youngsters 12 and over to work in the City Post Office. The Easter vacation would be shortened to make up the four days difference. Lengthening of the vacation would save fuel as well as open a labor market for the post office, stores and other organizations especially active at Christmas, Supt. of Schools Hay cock declared. Girls would work only indoors and in units by themselves. Mrs. Philip Sidney Smith objected to shortening the Easter vacation. Dr. Robert A. Maurer suggested that only junior and senior high schools be closed. The question will be de rided at the next meeting. Novem ber 3. Mrs. Madeleine W.

Knox Called to Clarify Views of Navy on Service Vote Issue Bs the Assocliteri Press. Some clarification of the soldier vote issue was promised today as Secretary of the Navy Knox was called before the House Committee on Election of National Officials to give his views on proposals for ab sentee balloting by servicemen. Acuteness of the situation was emphasized by Chairman Worley, who expressed belief it would be "physically impossible” to give serv icemen a vote in the primary elec tions because of the short time be tween primaries and general elec : tions. Legal Bar Possible. ! Representative Rankin. Democrat, of Mississippi declared straight bal lots cast by absentee voting might be illegal in his State, where the law forbids straight party tickets. The Worley bill would permit the voting of a straight party ticket or for in dividual choices. Mr. Knox's views have not been made known to members of the com mittee. However, they expect him to favor the principle of absentee bal loting by servicemen throughout the world. In addition to Mr. Knox. Navy, maritime and' Republican National Committee representatives have been invited to attend today’s hear ings. • | In an effort to speed the measure to the House floor. Mr. Worley said he would seek to complete commit tee action on it by the end of this week. Opportunities Called Uniform. Replying to Mr. Rankin's conten tion that laws of his State banned straight voting, that there might be conflicts between Federal balloting and other State laws and that ab sentee voting should be. left to States, Mr. Worley said: “Under terms of this bill service men do not have to cast a Federal ballot If they don’t want to do so. They can vote a State ballot If they de«ire.” He denied any party would have an advantage under his measure. ‘‘Republicans will have the same opportunity as the Democrats to inform voters in the field,” he said. "Little or no Information can be transmitted." Five-Year-Old Boy Given Medals Won by Father By the Associated Presa.
