'•' ..." :••'-_•- " Russia Slaps at Britain BERLIN, Germany — (&)— The German press Thursday interpreted Russia's rejection of Britain's contraband list as a "sharp protest against blockade warfare" which might lead to serious trouble between the two DOW. ers.

These sources believed Roumania would have to fight alone in defending Bessarabia. In such event, they said, Hungary probably would be forced to move immediately into Transylvania, which she lost to Roumania after the World war, as a "self-defense" measure to secure the Carpathian mountains as a barier against any further Communist expansion into Central Europe. Roumania has received assurances that Moscow has no demands on Bes- sarabia, former Soviet territory. Despite these assurances, new tension has wen reported in Roumania and King parol's envoys to Bulgaria and Turkey have been summoned home. Political circles have reported from Roumania that "important developments are imminent in the Balkans." Roumania officials maintain their country would fight, even without Allies if necessary, to maintain her territorial integrity, but these diplomats pointed out that: 1. Turkey, aligned with Roumania in the Balkan Entene, was exempted from fighting Russia under her new mutual assistance pact with Britain and France 2.
