NEXT OLYMPIAD

CLAIMS BY FINLAND Rec. 9.30 a.m. HELSINKI, July 31. The Minister of Education, M. Johan Helo, urged that the next Olympic Games should be held in Finland. The 1940 Olympiad was allotted to Finland but was never held. "Although I am not empowered to speak for the Soviet Union I am under the impression that they would have nothing against the project but would, on the contrary, he glad to see the Olympics staged at Helsinki, for undoubtedly Russian athletes would fulfil our hopes that they should participate. There would be no difficulty about housing the athletes and spectators."
