Three crack battleships, all reconstructed reconstructed to withstand fire of late model airplane bombs, their anti-aircraft batteries doubled, received orders to join the fleet in what is now the world's most dangerous sea. The Royal Oak, on a parade-cruise of seaside resorts--received orders to cancel Its schedule and proceed at once for the Mediterranean. It sailed direct from Liverpool. The Malaya quietly left the home fleet to go to the Meditciranean. The Warspite reached orders to leave as soon as tests were finished on its nexv engines and anti-aircraft suns, and was due to join the Mediterranean Mediterranean fleet within two weeks. Situation Held Grave News from all capitals was grave. Paris reported a Spanish Loyalist charge, transmitted by the Agence Espagne that Italy was speeding war planes to Nationalist Spain. Berlin, through its official agency, alleged In a dispatch dated from th~ French-Spanish border that Basque Loyalists on the Bilbao-Santander front were using gas shells. Valencia, the Lojallst capital, denying this, charged the allegation uas the foundation for the "use ol poison gas by the foreigners who have invaded our fatherland ard by the wretches w ho w ish to hand Spam over to them." Rome reported that Itnjjans were astonished by the sudden hardening of British-French policy and were preparing to meet what they felt would be the grax est crisis since the World war. Nail Demands Refused Britain had considered granting the Nationalists belligerent rights, ·which would ha\e permitted them --with any aid they could get--to blockade the coasts of Spain with the sanction of international law. On Thursday this attitude changed suddenly and drastically. Britain and France agreed to reject all Italian-German Italian-German demands and to permit the collapse of the entire non-mter- vention plan if necessary.
