(UP)—Gen Sir Archibald Wavell. hero of the British Empire drive against the African empire, has assumed supreme command of British forces on the Balkan front, it was reported today in well informed quarters. It was indicated that Wavell and his staff had made full dispositions of the British army in Greece and had worked out strategic and tactical plans with the Greek high command. In view of the fact that a German attack on both Greece and Yugoslavia had been foreseen for weeks, it was assumed that the Jugoslav general staff had at least oeen advised of plans. One of the most decisive moments of the war had arrived Britain had challenged Germany m force in southeastern Europe and Hitler had; expressed his determination [ 0 drive the British into the sea from any vantage point they might seize on the European continent. The issue was clear. Great Britain disclosed officially only, last night "the worst kept secret of the war"—that a British army had been landed in Greece Estimates of its number ran from 100.000 to 200.000 But it was indicated strongly that the total strength might soon be. if it was not now. 300,000 men. fully equipped with the latest, types of automatic arms and mechanized and armored transport. The communique announcing the presence of the British army in Greece said: "After the entry of German troops to Bulgaria had brought to a head the long threatened German invasion of the Balkans his majesty's government in the United Kingdom, in full consultation with ihe Dominion governments concerned, sent an army into Greece comprising troops from Great Britain. Australia and New Zealand to stand in line with the soldiers' of our brave ally in defense of their native soil. "The British air force, whirl;. don and Istanbul made plain that the Nazi army was having- no walkover. Nazi sources entered a vague claim that their forces had penetrated the Yugoslav and Greek .frontiers to a depth of 20 to 25 miles, but did not say where the advances had occurred.

Well informed British sources supplemented this communique by saying: 'The extent of the initial force was agreed upon by the Greek and British general staffs and does not represent the full extent of British assistance British contemplated." commentators warned Balkan war front have overcome enemy resistance at fortified positions after fierce battles and that advances continued into Greece and Yugoslavia. Reporting stubborn fighting on the Grr:Pk-Yu»oslav frontier, the agency said the Nazi forces have smashed through unnamed forts and were "continually advancing." Bpigracle. the Yugoslav capital, was known '.o have suffered four srmmhhig air attacks by the Nazi air force despite evacuation of the city by the Yugoslav government and a declaration that it is an open city. In the first of these attacks, 73 persons were reported killed, and it was feared the death toll in the successive "bombardments may have been far higher. The Nazi accounts of the raids indicated that the German air force was meting out to Belgrade such treatment as previously had been inflicted upon Warsaw and Rotterdam. There was some belief based on German emphasis on air force activities and scarcity of accounts of land fighihisi that the German high command was depending upon the air arm to carry the brunt of the early attack upon Yugoslavia. The Germans claimed that their air force had put 98 enemy planes out of action in the first day's operations. 35 of them in air battles, including four British bombers, and the remainder on the be of Great Bri- was said to i , . * "-'* ^-t*i-(iLi JL> l l tain—to avoid any militnry movement for the moment.

British sources said that in thr present circumstances, a Turkish declaration of war would be 'a "devastating" blow to Germanv's position in the Balkans," : even- 3 . r the Turks remained behind their own border and merely permitted British warships to go through the Dardanelles to harry German transports in (.lie Black Sea The Germans were said to emoloying; txvo air fleets in the Balkans operation. comprising about 3400 planes. Against the German air armada ihe British have massed crack squadrons of the Royal Air Force in Greece. Some of these squadrons now may be operating from Yugoslavia. From Hungary, Rumania and Bulgaria came reports and protests of air action by British and Yugoslav planes. "Little Alcatraz" Inmates Break Leys DALLAS. Ga..
