Previously the German steamship Heddern- helm, -1.947 tons, had been sunk off the northeast Danish coast. Germany charged that the Edmund Hugo SUnnes IV had been ' attacked within Danish waters.. Receipt by the foreign office of a Norwegian allegation that British warships had violated Norwegian territorial waters in recent days was announced today, and. it was said that an Investigation would be made before a reply was sent. Norway charged In an official slatemcnt that 'British warships had tried to Intercept German ships three times within the last four days off the Norwegian coast, twice - at least Inside Norwegian territorial waters, and had been ordered off by Norwegian warships. The third attempt was under investigation it was said. Diplomatic quarters here specu- .lated on the possibility that Britain intended henceforth to take what was called a "more realistic" policy in its attempt to choke or at least to Impede Germany's vital supply line from Scandinavia. They recalled at once that Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain told the House of Commons lost Tuesday night: "We are trying to keep within tile rules of international law but . . . Germany . . . has absolutely forfeited any right to appeal to International law against any violation of law we might embark on in order to do any Injury to-her," The British navy and air force, were constantly aiid'contln- uoitsiy watching'Scandinavian waters to see if any German warships were violating them, he said, and added: "If we had been able to establish a single case we would not have hesitated to enter those territorial waters to attack such n ship." It is the British view, that Germany has violated International law by sinking neutral as well as Allied ships without warning whenever and wherever the opportunity offered and that its warships have used neutral waters to keep away from British warships. At the same time, the British say, Germany Is always prompt to complain In the ina^t vigorous way against any alleged "technical" Allied Infringement of International law—Infringement which has not cost either a neutral or a German life. In the sinkings of the Edmund Hugo stmnes' IV and Hcddernheim, the British pointed out, they obeyed the letter and spirit of International Ian- by giving warning to the ships am their crews. Diplomats asked, however, If Britain had not now decided to exercise greater latitude as regards such bloodless nnd "technical" violations of law as entering neutral waters to attack enemy ships. British commentators express difficulties in understanding why neutrals protest strongly against . "technical" violations of their waters by British warships in view of the /act thst they do not suffer, while they maintain what Britain regards as an almost complacent attitude of Germany's "constant contraventions of the vital principles of Immune warfare which have caused the loss of thousands of tons of neutral shipping and many neutral lives." Whatever the situation, it is held "ere, Germany has gained an un- tair advantage over Britain, and there is growing sentiment in favor or basing British policy In future .on the dictates of humanity alor ralhnr than on !e» a l phrases. ing ore.
