The transfer of US-registered frieghters to foreign flags for purposes of circumventing the new Neutrality Act "impairs the integrity" of that act, according to Secretary of State Cordell Hull. The Secretary's comments come as United States Lines has applied for permission to transfer nine of its ships to Panamanian registry for continued transatlantic service. The Secretary delivered his interepretation of the move to the US Maritime Commission, which has not responded to his remarks. The Queen of the Netherlands and the King of Belgium have issued a joint call on the warring nations of Europe to reach a negotiated peace "before the war in western Europe breaks out in full terror." Queen Wilhemina and King Leopold issued the statement after all-night discussions with their foreign ministers, and intended the statement as an expression of solidarity between their two nations. The British Admiralty reports that light British ships aided by Polish destroyers warded off a German air attack in the North Sea. The celebrations of the 22nd Anniversary of the Russian Revolution continue in Moscow, with Soviet War Commissar Klementi E. Voloshilov telling troops massed in Red Square that while the nation will not take part in the current war, it must remain prepared for war. Today marks the second day of a planned three-day celebration of the anniversary. Turnout is reported brisk in early voting today as Brooklyn casts its ballots, with a last-minute controversy flaring up over a poster campaign seeking to annex votes for Judge Irving Lehman for the Republican ticket. Lehman is the nominee of all parties on this year's ballot, but is officially a Democrat. The posters, encountered in Brownsville and East New York, urge voters to cast their ballots for Lehman by pulling the lever for the straight Republican ticket. Magistrate Charles Solomon, ALP candidate for District Attorney, calls the GOP poster campaign "a cheap and demagogic trick." Polls will be open until 6pm. You can tune in full coverage of the returns tonight over municipal station WNYC -- or you can hear the broadcast right here. A dramatic new development in the ongoing dispute over city milk prices today, with Sheffield Farms, largest New York milk distributor, announcing it will phase in a new two-quart paper milk container, in which milk will be sold at a savings of 1.5 cents per quart. The paper containers, which are lighter in weight than the old-fashioned glass bottle, and which are less costly to manufacture, will be available only in a two-quart size, and will begin appearing on Brooklyn doorsteps as early as next week, with the entire city expected to have them available by February. Sheffield customers who want milk in the one-quart size will have to take it in bottles, at the higher price. The announcement by Sheffield comes even as the company, and its biggest rival Borden, have announced an across-the-board price increase of 1/4 cent per quart, a move which drew sharp words from Mayor LaGuardia, who denounced the increase as an attempt to break the milk-drivers' union by making the cost of home delivery prohibitive without a return to the "starvation wages" of recent years. The Mayor pointed out that this is the third price hike in the past month in a half, most of it, he said, "gypped from the farmers. It seems there is a crime wave breaking out in New York City, I regret to say." The Mayor urged consumers to buy their milk from "honorable companies." Eleven members of the Brooklyn College football team wound up in court today after a wild night of carousing and celebration led them to chop down the goalposts at their arch-rivals' field. The athletes raided the City College grounds in Manhattan around midnight, after a day filled with victory rallies and celebrations marking their weekend win over the City College team. Charges of disorderly conduct against the football players were dismissed in Washington Heights court, after they agreed to pay the costs of the damage they caused to the field, and after noting that when City College players tore down the Brooklyn College goalposts last year, there were no charges filed. The magistrate then returned the splintered remains of the goal posts to the team as trophies. Erasmus Hall leads Manual Training 13-0 at half time in the 32nd Annual Election Day Classic, underway this afternoon at Ebbets Field before 15,000 spectators. Dodgers kicker Ralph Kercheval, who suffered a brain concussion in last night's game against the football Pirates, received word in the hospital that his wife has given birth to a healthy baby boy. Kercheval recovered sufficiently to pass out cigars to his teammates today at the Dodger training camp in Freeport. A key witness in the disappearance eight years ago of city Supreme Court Justice Joseph Crater may have been located in an insane asylum in Brentwood. Investigators believe that 38-year-old Mrs. Jean Covell, a patient at the Pilgrim State Hospital in Brentwood, may actually be June Bryce, Broadway showgirl with whom Crater maintained a relationship at the time of his disappearance. The Rev. Edward Lodge Curran, Brooklyn priest, and president of the International Catholic Truth Society, blames Communists for "the Negro Problem" in America. (The good Father Curran is Father Coughlin's East Coast representative, and he blames Communists for everything, including the laundry that put too much starch in his cassock.) Other speakers at the National Catechetical Conference in Cincinnati urged white Catholics to "discard their previous pernicious assumptions against the race."

A reader takes issue with Helen Worth's advice concerning etiquette for teetotalers at parties. She argues that if hosts don't want non-drinkers at their parties, they should have the nerve to come right out and say so on the invitations: "Non-Drinkers, Non-Smokers Stay Home! You Are Not Wanted!" This would, she says, make it easier on those of us who don't want to have to clean out and disinfect the car again after giving "woozy guests" a ride home. Two steelworkers plunged to their deaths yesterday in the collapse of the Plum Creek Channel Bridge, under construction in the Sheepshead Bay section. A 75-ton girder broke loose while being swung into position and two workers who were riding on the girder, 41-year-old Daniel McDonald of 151 S. Elliot Place and 19-year-old George McCoy of 320 E 71st Street in Manhattan, fell into the channel and, encumbered by heavy clothing, were drowned. A 46-year-old homeless woman is being held on $3000 bail by a Felony Court grand jury after she allegedly shot a 50-year-old Glendale man in the head with his own pistol. Mae Diehl is accused of seizing the gun from Tony Allgaier and shooting him with it, while Allgaier was displaying the weapon at a drinking party held at the home of a friend at 243 Moore Street on October 10th. Allgaier, who faces charges himself under the Sullivan Law for illegal possession of the pistol, was blinded in one eye and is losing his vision in the other as a result of the incident, and the magistrate ordered him remanded to the custody of the American Legion, who will send him to a veterans' hospital in an effort to save what remains of his sight. The famous Trapp Family Choir of Vienna captivated an audience at the Academy of Music with their unusual ability, writes music critic Miles Kastendieck, who declares that the best thing about the program was that "it was not quaint." NYU will meet "The Dizzy Dean of Football," gabby hillbilly quarterback Paul Christman, when they take on Missouri on Saturday at Yankee Stadium. World Series checks have gone out, reports Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis. Yankees receiving full shares will get $5,541.89 each, Reds will get $4,193.39. The third place Dodgers earn full shares of $769.86 each. The Football Dodgers shone under the lights last night, with Ace Parker's outstanding performance leading the Flock to a 17-13 win over the Pirates. The Dodgers are now 4-3 on the season with 1 tie, clinching at least a third place finish in the NFL Eastern Division, with three games left to play. A scientist who claims to have invented a working death ray, Dr. Antonio Longoria, will tell his story to Gabriel Heatter tonight on "We The People." Also appearing, English Channel swimmer Gertrude Ederle, tonight at 9 on WABC. The chief obstacle to world peace, opines Robert Quillen, is nationalism born of race prejudice. With Uncle Boohoo crawling around stuck in the ceiling, George does the only thing he knows how to do -- he grabs a saw and starts cutting more holes. Aaaaaand a cascade of diamonds falls out. Well, that ought to cover the damage. Murdock the Butler asks for the night off to visit "his previous master," and Leona perks right up when she hears that this worthy is "Prince Frederic of Kordja." Better known, no doubt, as Fritz. Dan Dunn tells Irwin all about how he's going to tie the owner of the shoe to the gun that shot that guy -- remember him? -- even as Kay and Babs dine again with John Barrymore Dook. Kay is slamming Dan all over the place, causing even poor little Babs to recoil with dismay. Dook laps it all up but keeps his own counsel.
