War in Finland hardly had ended and Finns still were withdrawing by tens of thousands from territory ceded to Russia but the center of German diplomatic activity already had shifted to the southeast where the Nazis have been hinting for a week nt the possibility of a vast economic siretchm° from Moscow to Berlin lo Rome and including the smail southeastern stales. If that goal can be achieved it was Indicated in Berlin then the war In the west will resolve itself into a military deadlock that can be decided only by a hazardous armed adventure—or perhaps by a successful peace move after a military "demonstration." The German viewpoint was that the Nazi forces were prepared to undertake a demonstration of military might if necessary. This view of successful economic notion to frustrate the allied economic blockade was obviously merely the German viewpoint and was Inspired, partly at least, by wistful thinking in . Berlin. Nazis were eager to promote better trade relations between Italy and Russia butj mI(M . their claims that an agreement was at hand was viewed in Fascist and i ate Soviet sources as over oplimistic ' ' although the Italians indicated Pill imm LONDON, March 15 (Ul')i .ivr. , «,vrn, 1>JIUIII 1,) \Ul f ' £ ~ Great Britain believes Ger- «->talc Committee bets August 13 And August 27 For Elections many and Russia inny start a new "ponce; offensive" tim-1 cd to coincide with Undersecretary Stunner Wclles's i return to Washington, it was understood today.
