Today, there are rumors streaininjr out of Bulgaria that .some important event is near. Most notable are the reports of virtual general mobilization and of ;i civilian evacuation of the MariUii valley which leads down into Thraeian Greece. King Bovis 1ms ousted Bo^dan *-• Philoff as premier and Ihus eliminated . the last ranking moderate from Bulgaria's government. Although Philoff Is tlic man who hi 1941 signed Bulgaria Into the Axis at Vienna, it was done under immense German pressure. PhilolT himself always Unit been considered pro-Russian • and anxious lo maintain peaceful relations with Bulgaria's neighbors — a rarity among Balkan statesmen.

(UP) — President Roosevelt warns, nil \mcrlcniis to face the Iiicl; (hat icace-loving Thomas .Jefferson accd, "Thnt men who will, not iglit for Liberty can lose It." The President rodedicaled tlie Nation todny lo the Ideals of the hlrd president of the United Slates at the formal ceremony opening Ihe while marble Jefferson Memorial on the Tidal Basin In Washington. Although Jefferson was Ixirn '203 /cars ago, Mr. Uooscvcll suid the author of' the Declaration of In- [tependencc was confronted by Issues similar to the ones we face .otiay, Tlic President said the cruelties and oppressions against which we arc fighting taught us the inclining of these words of Jefferson: "I have sworn upon the iillur ot God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man." Mr, Uooscvcll had laid the cor- ncrslonc 01 the memorial In I'.KM. 1'odny he stood before the completed structure, shining beautifully In Ihe sun on Ihe .south side of Hit- Tidal llasln. Tim I're.sldenl said Unit Jeffer- sun is "closer by much to Ih'lng men than many of our leaders of Ihe years between." ^ "Ills cause," Mr. lioosevelt salil, '.'was a mime lo which we also are coiumitlced, nut by our words ulimc bill by our .sacrifices. . . , "Thomas Jelferson believed, as we believe, in man ... he believed, us we bfliere, In cerlaln Inalienable rights, lie, as we. saw U'.ose principles and fnviloms challenged, lie foiiRJil for ilieiu, a.s we light lur ihein." A:»erllii|; Ihal Jefferson proved "lhat Ihe seeming e:lip:<e ol l,tb- cily can well become Ihe dawn of more l.UnTlv," Ihe President pinm- hed; '"I'lils lesson, so blllci'ly buineii, will never be Iiirgiilten while Mils geniM'nllun lives."

And she foughl bordei- bailies wilh Greece in 1924. Then, in 1940, Germany forced Rumania to give Bulgaria the Dobfudja province in payment for Bulgaria's World War services. That was how Bulgaria deserted her traditional friendship with Russia- and adopted Germany as Jicr "fathcr-prolcclor." In addi- lion, Boris' wife, Queen loanna. is the daughter of King' Victor Emmanuel of Italy, and since the army's coup in 1034, Bulgarian governments have been more pro- Fascist than pro-democratic. '. Now. it seems, Hitler may be about, to demand of Bulgaria payment for favors bestowed. The evacualion of the Maritza valley and 'the reported imminence of general mobilization would indi- cale a possible Axis allack inlo Turkey, wilh two major objectives. Counter-Sieves Possible One would be lo hamstring what seems to be an impending Allied invasion of southern Europe by .striking at the Allied western flank. A second, anil perhaps, primary • objective would be lo, drive across northern Turkey inlo (lie Caucasus and reach the Caspian Sea. Germany certainly has not given up hope of taking the Caucasus despite the resounding defeat she suffered in that region .at Ihe hands of Ihe Russians last winter. That .attempt failed primarily because ot over-extended communication lines in a pincers lhat developed from the Ukraine In the north, and from ' the Crimea and Kcrcli slrails in Hie south. A drive into Turkey aimed at the Caucasus in conjunction wilh a massive new assault from the Ukraine and the Kerch straits would constitute a classic "pincers within a pincers" and if successful would nullity the entire Soviet Black Sea flcel. Strategisls never have ruled out the possibility ol a German "mad- dog" allack into Turkey. And if there is to be one at all. (he lime never seemed more propitious than this summer. It might secure the Caucasus for Hitler and perhaps even open the way for a Near East juncture with the Japanese. Tlic Nazis have promised thai surprises arc in store for the Allies in the future. This may have been vain braggadocio by a frightened enemy. But in war one learns to expect anything—especially from the Nazis as their position worsens, and that the best defense against the enemy is to atlack ourselves. other persons in the neighborhood discovered the fire which had gained great headway.
