WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5, 1938 Europe's Question Mark Russia 1938's Big Puzzle; France Unsure of Her Value As Ally BY MILTON BRONNKa NKA Service Stall' Correspondent LONDON, Jan. 1.—Soviet Russia enters the new year as the great question mark of work! politics. Particularly perplexed is the . French government. For Prance has \ ( an alliance with Russia. Thai alli- " once does not sit too well with England and is a cause of distrust on the part of Poland. Two clher friends of France—Rumania and Yugoslavia—do not like this Franco- Russian partnership. Rumania is afraicl the Soviets may try to take Bessarabia beck. Yugoslavia—filled •with White Russian emigres—has never had any dealings with Soviet Russia. But aside from this diplomatic angle, France would give a good deal to know just what material value this Russian partner means to France In ease of trouble. Russian Progress Intrigued France When France signed her pact with Soviet Russia, all seemed fair In the military garden. The .Soviets had built up their Red Army to the point where it was Ihe largest in the world. They had one of the air forces in the world. There was considerable secrecy about their navy, but it was darkly hinted they had a much bigger and more powerful submarine force than was generally believed.

Stalin is the big question mark in lite Franco-Russian pact smokes out Ihe foes who harass Ills regime. as ho Sun's Son Is Soviet Envoy various Fiv° Year plins. th° w.v Russia, unlike the "Russia of the Czars, had a large home industry, capable of manufacturing al the arms and munitions the country might need. Also In the Spanish civil war—where Russian planes, tanks and guns were tested against similar weapons- of German and Italian origin, the Soviet material had stood up well. So far, so good, Purges Indicate Weakness Within But then began the terrifying series of "purees" by special courts In Russia, followed by dozens of executions of men who had held the highest posts in the Soviet stale—executives, generals, airforce experts, munitions technicians, mine authorities, manufacliirliw superintendents, diplomats. All of them were charged with treason to the stale or with sabotage or with favoring foreign powers. The inescapable surmise was: • 1—EitnifHYiese men were' adherents of Trotzky and so eliminated to make the Stalin regime more j solid on its foundations, s 2—Or they were genuine traitors Tn either case, it revealed n slale of affairs In which the business o Soviet Russia was honeycombec with people who hated the re»ime and wished it no good. A govern ment thus menaced and harassed which seeks and finds traitors tm der every bush and In every nook and corner, is probably badly crip pled at the start. Stalin Is Key To Internal Puzzle At least, lhat is what on increas Ing number of Frenchmen tea They are -wondering whf'Jher i that next war history would no repeat itself, with Russia once mor dropping out of the contest, on more beaten from within rath than from without. The main hope of the Frenc men, who still anxiously desire the alliance, is that Stalin is really the man of steel; that he knows what he Is doing and Is setting about it with iron purpose; that when he gets through with his purge, he will have a Stallnized Russia slronger than that country has ever been in all its history.
