Orandi's statement was a couu- tcf-atlack against Russia's charges that Italy, Germany and Portugal. Fascist nations, were open ly aiding the Spanish rebels. i It. was the culmination of ajSavs stormy day. Portuguese Delegate Quits j The Portuguese delegate, accusing Soviet Russia of "an act of hostility," walked out of 'ibe meeting. Portugal's action was preceded by a bilter clash between Italy and Britain. Francisco Caihclros, the Portuguese delegate, resented Russia's charge that Portugal violated the International agreement for neutrality in Spain bv permittim; shipments of amis through her territory. He said he would not sit with the committee again uii- . less Instructed by his government. liussia also has accused Germany and Italy of aiding Ihe Spanish rebels, threatening to give armed support to the government side if such aid does not cease.

"The true Soviet motive for an offensive becomes clear," a foreign office spokesman said, "if one considers frankly the express- disillusionment over the fact that the cause of the Spanish Popular Front--despite support given ills nol making the military progress hoped for in Moscow. 1 ' A spokesman expressed Ihe Foreign Office's view as believing ihat Ihe powers at least had been successful In localizing the Spanish conflict, but that Moscow's move which thinly veiled a threat of official intervention in Si"iln" created danger of the very complications whicii the non-l Carl Bailey Will Speak Here on Armistice Day Carl E.
