One important fact the general public, including the writer herof, should bear in mind i.s that the streets were built and are maintained lo travel over and if everybody would bear this in mind it would avoid a lot of confusion and delay on the part of people who desire and arc seeking to travel over tlie streets, but are prevented from so doing by other people who thoughtlesslf use the streets to park their cars while they arc visit- I wo.

Russia Good Trade for Hitler (, But It Raises the Possibility Italy May Join Allies Germans Letting Russia Into Balkans Would Frighten Italy RUSSIA ^NEUTRAL No Intention of Firing a Shot, Says Expert Eliot What lies behind this siddcn new German—Russian friendship? It scuts tn have called Italy and Japan toward their former Nazi ally. Did Hitler make a good bargin in trading them for Russian aid? George Fielding Eliot, fmimtis authority on military subjects, answers tlio.se questions in the exclusive dispatch below to NEA Service, By GEORGE FIELDING ELIOT (Written for NEA Service) LONDON — Tlie consensus of Europe's "expert gucssers" as to the Moscow strategy in this present con- flictjs the Russia hasn't the slightest intention of moving a soldier or fir'- r i ing a shot until western Europe is I in shambles. On the basis of information here and my previous observations in Warsaw, Bucharest, Belgrade, Athens and elsewhere, this would seem to be a fair analysis of Russia's role in the current war. From the German viewpoint, there is little doubt that Berlin expected Poland to .surrender at the mere announcement of DID Russo-Germa'n pact whereupon Britain and France would make the best of a bad bargain. The Russians may also have considered this possibility, in which case Russia and Germany would divide Poland. If Russia had made a deal with the French and British, and (lien Germany beat Poland, Russia would get no cut of the melon. However, the possibility must not be rejected that the Russo-German pact goes deeper and envisages real cooperation—in which case the whole situation changes. Rumprs continue of secret agreements partitioning the Balkans. To Russia goes Turkey, Bulgaria and Bessarabia, Plus a free hand in the Baltic states including Finland and the eastern part of Poland. To Germany goes Yugoslavia, Rumania (less Bessara- bia i, Greece. Hungary, Danzig, the Corridor, upper Silesia and Posen leaving of Poland only a small rump of a state around Warsaw. The Germans must, have known that, the pact with Russia would alie- nale Japan and Spain and do no good for the Naxi standing in Rome. Yet they went ahead. Unless the Russians are deliberately double-crossing Germany, a new and startling situation may arise. Consider Russia as Active Ally Considering Russia purely on' speculative basis, as an active military ally of Germany attacking the Pole's at the proper time, it is difficult to sec how (he Poles could resist the .sheer weight of numbers of Russian troops, dc.spilc the band quality "f the Russian command, staff and transport. Similarly, H Russian attack on Bc,s- siirabia, coupled with lightning German moves by air. using troop transport planes to sci/.e Rumanian oil fields, would create an impossible .••ittiatinn in Rumania. Meanwhile. Turkey, which holds Ihc key to the Black Sea, might well if hesitate because of the long, exposed. Black Sea coast and the Cacasu.s frontier .

The announcement called the unit armored troops. It further announced that troops were forging rapidly ahead and had reached Nadarzyn, Polish capital. "This would indicate an entry had been made by the German column which has been driving on Warsaw from the north," the statement said.

"The Polish air fleet is intact. The world will understand this before long."
