Only last week-end, Nazi Ambassador Von Papcn conferred at length with the Turkish president, probably in an effort :to I corn whether -Turkey intends to go in with the Allies. In this connection, the Turks have increased Hitler's jitters by sending stall officers to 'visit Allied positions in the Middle East,- and welcoming Allied mili- lary instructors to Turkey. Hitler is said to be nudging Bulgaria to move in and take Turkish Thrace which forms a ready-made bridgehead between Europe and Asia Minor. And he is .said to have '.threatened that ir the Germans are driven out of Greece, they will leave that country in ruins. N'illis Kvaciia'te Citizens In the Dodecanese Islands, flanking Ihe Turkish coast, all citizens of Greek or Turkish origin arc being evacuated by the Nazis lo head off anti-Axis espionage and agitation. i, . Not only in the Balkans, but in northern Europe, too, the Nazis have their Imnrjs full. So-called police martial law has been declared throughout Holland, a curfew has been imposed, and summary courts established with power to dea! out death sentences even for minor acts of resistance. Across the interior of Europe, the Nazis are alarmed at. the destruction visited upon their transport by Allied air armadas. Tho damage wreaked on locomotives, repair shops and railway tracks is a critical blow to Gerirlan hopes of being able to shift forces at will when the Allied invasion begins.
