WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 1940 Russian Oil Lines Open To Attack By Allies Through Turkey ny BRUCE CATTON NKA Service Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON. March 20.-\Var in the southeast moved claser with elimination of the Northern Front by HIP peace of Finland, in (he opinion of many world military authorities. In the cento of the stage- In the new potential theater of war is the ». Wg oil pipe line from Baku to ~ Batum, across the Russian province of Georgia, which carries IJ.nich of the oil on which Knssia depends and from which Germany hopes lo increase her supplies. ; Observers in the capllnl believe dial, If Turkey, France mid England should unite in a war against. Russia, tills pipe-line would be the chief military objective. An allied army, It i s assumed, would strive 10 cut it; Russia's chief objective would be to prolect it, since It carries the output ot the rich Baku 011 fields, and its capture or ctit- 'llng would seriously cripple the Soviet Union. MOUNTAIN RANGE WOULD BE FRONTIER Formidable mountain ranges lie along the Turkish-Russian border, and .it. is assumed Hint the Hussion • defense line would be drawn [here. These mountains are not Impassa- . ble, however— Russian troops got te well beyond them at one time dtir- '^ ing the World War; furthermore, it might, be passible to send an allied army around lo Ihe region of Bntntn by sea. Sea pewer would be important in such n war. If the war did take place, a German-Russian drive on Rumania might accompany it—in which case Britain and Prance would need Turkish permission to transport a rescue force to the mouth of the Danube by sea. Hpiv- ever, Germany is reported to have pledged Russia to leave Rumania alone. Good figures on existing naval strengths . in the Black Sea are .not at hand here, but the consensus is that Ihe Turkish forces are stronger than the Russian- with French and British additions, they certainly would be. Transport of an army to Rumania would thus be- possible;- so would a blow at. Odessa, . Russia's principal naval base, arid- conseijiieiit-'cultlng of (he « ,sea Irine by which ol] goes from Batuin to Odessa. Turkey has a' capable army with . a peace strength of half a million men. No one knows how many troops Russia now has in the Georgian area, but their number is believed to be large. . The general opinion in Wash- ingloli is .that the number of Prei^h troops hi Syria has been a good deal exaggerated recently; this. It is held, was done by the French government intentionally as a means, of. pulling pressure" on Russia. Even so, It Is admitted that '• France has strong forces in Syria, available for use In a drive against tlie. .pipe-line II necessary; in nd- j ditlon.

Little stock Is Inken here in the stories about a Russian drive toward India; distances would be too great and supply lines altogether loo sketchy, it is bejleved, to mnke such nn offensive practicable. Should there be an allied effort to invade Russia itself,, the line would probably go via Rumania and Odessa; the Caucasus mountains offer Russia n formidable defense line, bnyon'd which an invader's supply difficulties would be immense.
