RUMANIAN IS ON WAY TO CAIRO Reportedly Will Offer 6 Point Surrender Plan By JOHN A. PAKKIS London, IU.R)--Rumania is ready to offer a realistic (i-point surrender, and Bulgarian letlisls have decided to attempt to overthrow Premier Dobri Bojilov, reports on activities of Adolf Hitler's troubled Balkan satellites said Wednesday. Prince Barnu Stirbc, 70 year old former Rumanian premier now in Turkey, reportedly was enroute to Cairo and a London Daily Express dispatch quoted reliable sources at Ankara that he was ready to offer Rumania's sur- rnder. The terms were said to include: 1. Rumania lo cede Bessarabia to Russia without reserve. 2. Rumanian troops to withdraw west of the Pruth river. 3. German forces to be invilet to withdraw from Rumania and lo be ejected forcibly if they refuse. 4. Rumania to maintain its sov- eign independence and no communist regime to be imposed. 5. Russia lo be requested lo guarantee the return to Rumania ot Transylvania, now held by Hungary. 6. Rumania asks that any occupying allied force to include British and American troops as well as Russians. Stirbe's authority was not clear. He probably is an emissary of premier Ion Antonescu, although it is unlikely that Russia ever would accept the Rumanian strong man on a long-term basis It also was considered possible however, that the prince represented right wing liberal groups with which he long has been associated. These groups certainly would be against Antonescu am likely are identified with the royal household. CHARLES E.
