(UP) —Tension increased through western Europe todny in the belief that Adolf Hitler might at any time embark on the supreme gamble of his career with a gigantic German offensive on the western front. It was believed In some quarters tlmt any attnck would most likely be made through The Netherlands and Belgium with lightning swiftness and on a scale equaling if not surpassing the historic German attack on Verdun In 1916. Home leaves of the French annj and the British expeditionary forces and Royal Air Force in France had been suspended. Belgium and The Netherlands, determined to defend themselves, had made new military preparations. Netherlands authorities had started emeiiating some women and children frnm German frontier areas. 1JKRL1N, April 12.

Tlie Swedish coast had been mined and the key Swedish port of Halmslad had been blacked out during the night. Premier Benlto Mussolini was reported to have called five army classes <o the colors.

But today's newspapers clearly .showed their disappointment that Winston Churchill, first lord of tho admiralty, had been unable to announce a smashing allied victory in his House of Commons speech - . _„ that reports of such greatly extended engagements must come slowly, ft toot several days to clear up the details of the battle ot Jutland, the last groat naval engagement between Britain and Germany.

Responsible sources insisted that Oerman reinforcements were pouring into Norway through the ports of Oslo, Bergen and Stnvniigerand claimed that coastal batteries In Norway had been manned by the crews of the sunken ' cruisers Bluecher nnd Karlsruhe, the only losses Germany has acknowledged In the Scandinavian campaign. Tlie high command announced yesterday evening that the invasion of Norway "continues on schedule." and that two more British -destroyers had been stink at Narvik, making the total six British destroyers at that port alone. The newspaper Hamburger Frem- denblatl said thai British reports of sea fighting nlonj the entire Norwegian coast were- "propaganda colored rumors." and that "the situation really is characterized by the tact that the surprise elcmen't of the German action had Us fullest effect."

LONDON, Apr. 12 (UPi—Great Britain struck powerfully at German supply lines to I7orway today by sowing a vnst new mine field off Denmark and Sweden and by sending Royal Air Force planes on one of the boldest raids of the war against Nazi ships and bases in the Baltic sea. Two German supply ships, one a munitions craft of 8,000 tons, was blown up or badly damaged U was announced In British nlr circles ,'iml ii German scuplnnc base on the coast of the Reich was heavily at-' lacked by bombing planes which ronmed from Oslojfoord to shores of Ihe linltlc sea. Soon ulter It had been announced lhat mines had been laid to sever German lines to Iheir forces battling for control of Norway, air :lrclc.s said that n line of eight or ten German supply ships had been bombed despite heavy anll-nlrcrafl fire from German batteries on ships and on shore, A 5,000 ton German .supply ship was bombed and believed damaged olf Langcsland.

The air ministry said that there was no truth in n German charge that Drlllsh planes had attacked a railway station in northwest Germany—a chaige which Ihe Nazis made the basis for implied threats to bomb IJrIllsh rail cenlcrs or other zones in which civilians might be victims.
