Both Great Britain and the united SUtas have been reducing the area of their sovereignty, he said, while Russia hu gone the other way. "The Soviet Union has In effect considerably expanded her frontier*," he added. "Since 1939 she hai de facto (In fact) annexed territory comprising an area of more than 280,000 square miles with population of some 22,000,000 arsons." Admit* Futile Over Policy Marshall admitted himself bared by Soviet Union policy, ejpe- ally the wanton manner In which, le Communists have dissipated American goodwill for themselves nd their government stored up uring the war when the demc- ratlc world applauded the Russian stand against Hitler. Marshall obviously expects Rus- lan double-dealing at the London orelgn ministers conference with Fire Razes Little Rock School's Warehouse LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Nov. 18.— (UP)—Fire of undetermined origin today raged through the warehouse or the Little Rock School District, causing damage to furniture and school supplies estimated at more than $50,000.

We are not blind to any of the forms which this attack assumes. "And we do not propose to stand by and watch the disintegration of the international community to which we belong." That was straight talk — and aimed at the Kremlin. It wai warning; from Marshal] backed by the United States government that (he American people are In the same to stay and willing to play with bine chip,. The stakes could not be higher. When Marshall said Communists and Soviet officials had venomously nnd with calculated purpose vlllifled and distorted American motives In foreign affairs, he wns tnlkliijj about Soviet IVjrelgn Minister V. M. Atolotov, among others and the two top Russian accredi ted to the United Nations, Andre Vishlnsky and Andrei Oromyko. "Theso opponents of recovery,' Marshall said, "charge the United Slates with Imperialistic design aggressive purposes, and flnall with a desire to provoke a third world war. I "I wish to state emphatically that there Is not truth whatsoeve in these charges, an<t I add tha UiosB who make them are fully ware of that fact-" That Is the way one diploma calls another diplomat a liar. Scorning Communist charges o imperialism, Marshall cited th AS FEATURED IN ESQUIRE effort* directed toward keeping Germany prostrate and Europe In economic disorder. That Is the Communist Party line from the tip of the Italian toe to far beyond the Artie circle. The United states will plug as earnestly for Germany's recuperation as the keystone of Europe's economic arch. Germany It the key to Europe's • recovery, Marshall told the Chicago audience. He said (he Marshall plan would fall unless Germany's industrial production Is revived to pre-defermined levels. Until Germany Is restored In part to normalcy and Europe strengthened along with her, there will be no end to the summons for American aid to Rurope.
