Blyllicvlllo Courier Blylhcville Herald Blythcville Dally News Mississippi valley Leader ARKANSAS, MONDAY, OCTOHKU 2, IMS) SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS Belligerents Settle Down For Long War Despite Peace Bids By L'niled Press Kuropo's belligerents, anticipating failure of the Na/i- Soviet ultimatum for peace, settled down today to war with all their resources. As the second month of hostill- *—— tics got underway a new and perhaps final bid for peace by Adolf llliler, perhaps through Italy, was expected but Great Britain and France already had turned It down. On the fighting fronts every move seemed to intensify the determination of both sides to fight to the finish. On the high seas a mysterious German raider suddenly appeared in (he South Atlanlic and sank the 5,C50-ton British merchant ship Clement. The crew of 48 or 49 was believed rescued but the British admiralty, which already had warned vessels thut tlic Nazis threatened to torpedo armed merchant men without warning, advised all ships to take precautions against the unidentified raider. On the Baltic sea Soviet Russia moved to consolidate its hold on Estonia by "inviting" the foreigi minister of Lalvia lo Moscow to discuss leasing -naval and air bases to Russia. The invitation was accepted immediately and indicated that Latvia was scheduled to follow the course of the Estonia! government. Lithuania is the third Baltli slate and the closest to Germain and there were hints tnat the Sov let's spread of influence along tin Baltic would soon include tha government loo. Count Clano, Italian foreigt minister, concluded a 12-hour vlsi to Berlin, where Hitler and For eign Minister Von Ribbentrop ad vised him of the Nazi-Soviet de velcpments and, presumably, tils cussed the possibilily of Premie Mussolini acting as, mediator Ihe new peace offensive. Rome expected that Mussolii would accept the role and suggcs a five or seven power conferenc possibly including the Unite States. Hints At Fascist Aid BERLIN, Oct. 2 (UP)—The Nazi press hinted today that Italy as well' as Soviet Russia would lend military ftid . to Germany if. the allied-powers refused Adolf Hitler's bid fcr peace on the basis of a partitioned Poland.
