March 6—<U.P)— Administrative strategists in the senate succeeded today in sidetracking the restrictive Ellender amendment to the British aid bill in favor of a compromise omitting reference to western hemisphere limitations on the use of U. S. armed forces. The compromise—declaring that nothing in the bill changes existing law relating to the use of the U. S. land and naval forces—represented at least a temporary victory for President Roosevelt. SUBSTITUTE ACCEPTED It was accepted and introduced by Sen. Allen J. Ellender. D. La.. as a substitute for his original amendment opposing the use of American armed forces outside the western hemisphere or U. S. territories and possessions, including the Philippine islands. The compromise was drafted by majority members of the foreign relations committee after Secretary of State Cordell Hull and other administration leaders were represented as opposing reference to the hemispheric limitation on grounds it would have a “bad psychological effect” on the fighting democracies and give cause for Japan to strengthen its expansionist aims in the far east. COUNTER-SUGGESTION Opponents of the compromise promptly countered with a substitute proposal by Sen. Joseph C. CMahoney, D„ Wyo., who termed the new Ellender amendment “meaningless.” O'Mahoney’s amendment would forbid the president to use the nation’s land, sea or air forces to deliver war materials into combat zones delineated under the neutrality act, without consent of congress. O'Mahoney’s proposal embodied one by Sen. Francis T. Maloney, D., Conn., to prohibit use of American naval vessels to convoy supplies to Britain. Originally, O'Ma-honey's amendment placed a western hemisphere limitation on delivery of war materials. -rau rain by an open lane- Pilgrim Fellowship Convenes Today Congregational students and their friends will gather ln the social hall of the Elisabeth von Klein- j Smid hall from 2:30 to 4:30 pin.

Some neutral quarters speculated that Eden and Gen. Sir John G. Dill, chief of the British imperial staff, may have discussed with Greek leaders the conditions under which a British expeditionary force would be sent to Greece. ‘SENSE OF SMELL’ Asked what they believed Eden’s proposals to the Greek government to be, Nazi spokesmen said it was to be suspected “from one's sense of smell” that any British propositions would mean trouble if Greece accepted them. These German quarters said the Athens communique can be dismissed as “inconsequental” since it had “neither content or substance and it indicated that the Greeks are evidently delighter to get rid of this tiresome guest,’’ meaning Eden. Correspondents asked an Informed German source whether the German diplomatic offensive in the Balkans might slow down in the next few days and obtained the quick answer: that it would not.

I That students are taking heed of the drive to improve parking conditions on the campus is shown by the fact that only seven citations were issued yesterday to drivers ! violating parking rules. This decrease in the number of offenders may be attributed to increased student interest, aided by the fact that Thursday campus attendance is low, thus reducing the number of possible violators. IDENTIFICATION DIFFICULT Of the seven cars issued citations, identification tags revealed the names of two students: John Brondreth and Harold E. Staub. The license numbers of the other cars Issued citations were sent to the Automobile Club of Southern California for identification. Inability to trace names by license plates with greater speed is due to the fact that all 1941 license plates have not yet been recorded with the automobile club.

We tend to forget the great force of his ideas, and ideas are the most powerful force in the world.” In support of his position of reverting to Buddha for inspiration, Dr. Long remarked: “Philosophers are often chided for going back to antiquity for their material. The existence of such criticism is based upon the unfortunate loss of sense of history that appeared in the 17th century. “With the influence of Rene Descarte and Francis Bacon, the prevalent disposition of refusing to look to antiquity arose with major advances in mathematics, natural science and music,” he said.

Dr. Larry Holt, former secretary’ to the Austrian ministry of propaganda, yesterday declared in an address to the Associate Graduate students luncheon that he “was not at all aware of the blitzkrieg that was brewing in home politics.’’ Not only did the Nazi “blitz” find Austria in 1935 with its guns down, but the propaganda secretary himself—Holt—“was sitting in his bathtub, pleasantly anticipating an cpsra performance for the evening.” “In America I wanted to say good-bye to public life and to politics.” Now. since he has "seen the handwriting on the wall,” Dr. Holt is devoting much time and effort to warn this nation of subversive techniques of totalitarianism. In the light of recent developments in the Balkan area, Dr. Holt declared that Mussolini is not playing as bad a “game of chess” as many would believe. “II Duce cculd not have guided his country any differently than i he did. If Mussolini had not de- clared himself sympathetic with Hitler, Italy would have been invaded within two weeks by the Germans,” Dr. Holt indicated. After an alleged raid on the “Brown House,” headquarters for the Gestapo in Vienna, Dr. Holt related that “secret documents” revealing that the FBI of America was shot through with German agents. “There are six Nazi agents to every American agent in the United States today,” cried the speaker. Unfolding the fact that the headquarters of the Gestapo is in Washington, the “secret document” also divulged the fact that every German consulate is a hotbed of intrigue. Dr. Holt expressed his respect for the efficiency and organization of the German secret police, in spite of the fact that such damning evidence was found in a Viennese raid. German propaganda, Dr. Holt conveyed, was combatted in Austria by offering the people “more concerts, educational and cultural projects.” Honoring southern Califomia composers, the Trojan band will present a public concert in Bovard auditorium on Tuesday, at 8 p.m. The band, led by Pete C. Conn, will present an entire program of compositions of southland musicians, including the Trojan, “Fight On,” by Dr. Milo A. Sweet of Los Angeles.
