And these thousands are receiving only whar the Federal Surplus Commodities corporation can ship in for them. There is little evidence or knowledge of Clevelands relief condition on the main streets of the city where business is at its best in years.

This week the FSC is giving out 14 carloads of apples and 10 carloads of flour. That is all. Schedules explain that single persons get three pounds of flour and four pounds of apples, couples get six pounds of flour and eight pound of apples and so on. Next week they will get rolled oats, butter and squash. Negroes Suffer Worst Need is most evident In the negro districts.

Steady streams of people pile in and out of the storerooms where distributing station have been set up. A woman was asked how her family gets along on just applet and flour. We make pancakes, she A man was told that he would get butter next week. His reply wks What will we put it on I havent a nickel to buy bread. In one of the better districts, woman in her 30s, dressed fashionably, walked silently into a station.

She had a good job until a few months ago, explained the super visor, and she still has tht clothes. She was followed by a woman who couldnt speak English, an aged man whose hands shook, and a woman in a cheap checked coat. Supervisors express amazement at how many get along. Some save a little of their weekly dole to have variety later. Others pool their supplies or turn the flour and apples over to families who hav other food and all share in the meals.

It was stated officially today that Russian planes had been sighted yesterday over Esbo. a few miles west of Helsinki. Authorities speculated that the Russians may be seeking a place near the capital for- landing infantry troops by parachute.

The gulf outside Helsinki Is thickly mined and the approaches are well fortified, making extremely difficult any attempt by the Russian fleet to get close enough to shore to land troops. Political circles felt that the Russian command could not long endure the humiliation of being held at hay by a nation of Finlands size. New snow today was greeted enthusiastically by military authorities. They counted it a heavy advantage for Finland's famous skiing machine gunners and infantrymen. No cannonading wgs heard in Helsinki Itself today.

SKINNER FURNITURE CO. 19 Broad Street nov26-tf dropped in northern Finland, was said to have been captured near Salmijarvi on the Finnish-Norwe-gian border. Thousands of Finns strung all along the nation's lake-studded frontier facing Russia observed independence day while clinging to their trenches or pillboxes, or giving ground slightly before the red onslaught. Finnish aviation had opened its offensiv despite low-hanging clouds and snowstorms, a Finnish army communique reported. The fliers, far outnumbered by the mighty red air corps, were said to have attacked Russian troop concentrations yesterday while on reconnaissance.

(The communique also said 64 Russian tanks had been destroyed in the week-old war, and that enemy losses numbered 2,000 men. (A communique of Russias Leningrad command declared, all tanks participating in hostilities since Nov. 30 are present, and Finnish troops did not capture a single one. ((The Russian report declared only two Soviet planes had been brought down by the Finns, while two landed on Finnish soil vyhen the pilots lost their bearings because of bad weather. (The Russian command also denied the cruiser Kiroff had been damaged and two destroyers sunk in action against Finnish fortifications st Hango, at the mouth of the Finnish gulf, as the Finns reported last Friday.

(Shells of the Finnish coastal artillery missed the cruiser Kiroff by two and a half to three miles and caused merry animation and jeering among the crews of the Soviet warships, the communique said.) Speculating- on the course of the Russians' westward drive in the Kuolajarvi sector, observers assumed their planes would bomb heavily the railway communications between Roveniemi and Fin- lands Bothnian seaport, Kemi, op- posite the Swedish iron port of Lulea, Any Russian naval attempt to penetrate the Gulf of Bothnia, I however, seemed to- have been -blocked effectively by Swedish and Finnish mines and Finnish guns being placed on the Aland Islands at the mouth of the gulf. Russian attempts to advance southward from the Arctic coast had not yet overcome the Finnish resistance at Petsamo, according to reports reaching Kirkenes. Two Finnish fishing boats loaded with refugees were reported sunk by Russian warships while trying to reach Varangerfjord from districts west of Petsamo. All aboard were said to have been lost. The half-light of the Arctic day and the long nights are allies of the Finns.

The natural blackout greatly hampers Russian aerial activity. The Finns also count on the snoyy to help them, giving their GET our estimates on paint-ing and paperhanging. Reliable. Verzal Studios. Phone 332.

octl-lm CONDEMNATION (Continued from Page One) The United States government began a series of steps to aid the besieged people of Finland and emphasize its condemnation of Soviet Russia. Secretary of Treasury Morgen-thau, on instructions from President Roosevelt, gave orders that Finlands forthcoming semi-annual debt payment of $234,693 be held in a special account. Miy Roosevelt indicated he would ask congress for authority to use $he money for the benefit of the Finnish people. The president denied firmly at a press conference yesterday that Russia might consider such action unneutral. A question raisin this possibility presupposed, hs said, that perhaps the funds would be used to send airplanes to Finland.

Actually, he adjied, the money might be used to help the wounded or refugees. The state department was ready, meanwhile, to join with the Latin American republics in a Pan-American denunciation of the Russian invasion. Reliable sources said also that governnient credit agencies were studying the possibility of advancing credits to Finland. The little republic has indicated she wants to purchase military supplies here, ranging from rifles and light field artillery to airplanes. The state department announced the American Red Cross was beginning a survey to ascertain what the relief needs of Finland would be.

(At Palo Alto, former President Hoover undertook'to Bet up an organization to appeal for and co-ordinate United States contributions to the homeless in Finland.) Today was the twenty-second anniversary of Finnish independence, and it was almost certain that Mr. Roosevelt would send the government a congratulatory message, much stronger than the usual anniversary greetings. There were indications that decisions as to invocation of the United States neutrality act and severance of diplomatic relations between the United States and Russia might be aw'atting the outcoma of possible peace negotiations between Russia and Finland. President Roosevelt threw his authority behind the foreign policy of Secretary Hull with ironic comments yesterday as to sources of criticism. He said at his press conference that, with regard to the general method of handling foreign policy from day to day what Secretary Hull was doing must be very good indeed and have the approval of tha great mass of the American people.

This was obvious, he contended, because of the criticisms and accusations coming in. They arrived, he said, In larga part from sources: 1. The Soviet press. A portion of the Nazi press. The publicity expert of the republican national committee and the Hearst newspapers.

All, he said, were in substantial accord in attacking United United States foreign policy. 2. Statesmen of Russia and Germany and a comparatively small number of politically-minded people in the United States house and senate. Senator JB a Idaho) soli tided a warning that severance of diplomatic relations between th United States and Russia might draw the Soviet and Nazi governments more closely together and thus prolong the European war. Criticizing those who he said would stampede President Roosevelt into breaking off relations, he declared he could not see how such action would aid Finland.

Atwell Floral Co. decl-lm 35 Miles Covered By Invading Red Army KIRKENES, NORWAY (AT THE FINNISH FRONTIER), Dec. 8 (IP) On this 22d anniversary of Finnish independence, a Soviet Russian army was reported to have driven almost a fifth of the way across northern Finland apparently under orders to cut the country in two. This army was said to have penetrated 35 miles into Finland, reaching Kuolajarvi, on the seventh day of the war, and leaving only 150 miles to be traversed before Finland would be bisected.

Completion of the drive would put red forces on the Swedish border. Just beyond the border lie Sweden's rich iron mines. Observers saw in the relentlessly developing Russian strategy a great menace to Sweden apart from the disaster it might mean for Finnish troops in the far north. Region Not Strategic Finnish sources contended the i Russian advance was discounted in advance because the region already penetrated is practically uninhabited. The Finns declared the invaders would encounter "unbreakable resistance when they reached Finnish defense positions west of Kuolajarvi.

The base of this Russian crosscountry thrust was reported to be Kandalaksha, at the western most extremity of the White Sea, railway station nearest the Finnish border in that region. Kandalaksha lies 50 miles east of the Finnish border. In reaching Kuolajarvi, the Russians also gained access to a good highway running 110 miles northwest to the important communications center of Rovaniemi, where Finlands arctic highway continues northeast to Petsamo and a railway runs southward to the Gulf of Bothnia between Finland and Sweden. To support this drive, the Soviet Union continued the landing of thousands of troops along Petsamo Fjord and aerial forays for recon-noitering and bombing. Finns Fight Stubbornly Finns, fighting stubbornly in the cold and twilight of the Arctic, told of repulsing sporadic Russian attacks and of shooting down a Russian bombing plane.
