By coincidence or by the timing of master axis propagandists reports fell into a pattern today mat appeared to lift a curtain on the ..shape of tilings to come. These were'the developments: Americans Warned An urgent war alarm was sounded in the Par East. Australia called an emergency .defense meeting Americans in China,, Japan and even 1 .some in the Philippines were urged to return home. Big Japanese naval concentrations were reported off Siam and French Judo-China. Dutch merchant shipping was warned into neutral ports. in Prance Generals Francisco Franco and Ramon Serrano Suner of Spain conferred with Marshal - Petain. Yesterday they met with Benito Mussolini and achieved "complete identity of views." German Sea Victory Off the shores of Portugal German naval forces, including surface vessels, were reported by Berlin to have struck a crushing blow at a British convoy, sinking 13 ships including .large liners. London.re- ported a powerful British naval force had swept loop square miles of the Atlantic, possibly huntin°- Nazi raiders. The reports gave support to suggestions that when and if the Nazi Spring- offensive starts it will be confined to no single front, but will 'seek to engage the British at every pptential weak point of the empire's life lines. •" Women, Children and Non- Essential Men Advised To Leave Shanghai .; ^J SHANGHAI, Pel)/13.

(UP) — Reports thai Greece had rejected a German peace plan, that the Yugoslav premier and foreign minister had been-.summoned to Germany, and that Germany was moving additional men to Bulgaria and massing a great striking force on the Bulgarian frontier increased anxiety in the Balkans today. No Comment On lVa<* Rumor Well informed quarters said it was "quite possible" that Greece had rejected a German peace of- ler with full knowledge that ii might mean u German march toward Salonika. Sources close to the foreign office refused to discuss a report that the British government had been advised of the rejection. The view was thai any such action was Greece's affair and that Britain could not properly comment until Greece had announced .it.
