STUDIES SOVIET AIMS Whether Russia Will Go to Aid of Germany Is Question By (lie Associated Press Hundreds of thousands o£ French and German troops were reported Saturday to be engaged in a. terrific battle along the 40-mile western front after two week's of skrimishing. • Fighting, including reported "over the top" advances by Nazi infantry, , was said by military observers to be "" raging all the way from the Moselle river southeast to the Saarbruecken area. Observers estimated that at least 15 German divisions, and an equal if not larger number of French divisions, were fighting in no-man's-land between the Maginot and Seigfried lines.

Each time Europe seemed on llie point of get- linn together, the United Stales drew back into isolation. To understand the complicated background of !hc coming debate on neutrality, it is necessary to trace the evolution of the Roosevelt foreign policy. Going back over the record, this is the amazing sequence of events: The Now Deal Marled out in U)33 with participation in the London economic and monetary conference, a broad effort at international co-operation in those fields in the interest of peace.
