M. Molotov wound up his negotiations and blasting:- again at Italy's crippled war. fleet in Taranto. * Molotov left by train for Moscow , at 11 a. m. A German communique said the talks with Adolf Hitler were conducted In "an atmosphere of mutual trust." which resulted in unanimity of opinion on all questions of interest to Germany and Russia. No official statement, was issued as to the nature oi" these questions " but suggestions were spread by Nazis that they concerned Hitler's projected '-world order", continental peace after the war, Turkey . and the Near East and economic rela- , >t tiohs. The British thought. Germany might have obtained permission to build aircraft factories on Russian soil out of reach of British bombers. Molptov's stay in Berlin was .marked by a demonstration of Britain's growing air power. Royal Air Force bombers flew through • stormy skies to ' attack Berlin while the Soviet embassy was giving him a farewell party.

' ; • ; Specific details on'the new. bombing ".of Taranto were lacking. The British simply said the naval base ..had been-attacked again.- The Italians-admitted it but offered no report on damage.
