British troops were described by general headquarters ut Cairo as "now in contact with the enemy along the whole of our front" in Greece, while British reinforcements were reported from London hurrying through a sandstorm to battle the Axis columns in western £gypt and 'Libya. London heard that the Italian* . 1 viceroy of Ethopia had sent an emnmsary to Dire Dawa to negotiate for capitulation of Fascist East Africa. British Pushed Buck The German high command said that British forces had been (pushed back to the rugged sector overshadowed by Mount Olympus and that all of the weapons of modern mechanized war, including Nazi dive bombers were being hurled against the allies' lines in an effort to cut through the center, attack the important junction of Larisa and trap Greek forces -that had been forced to draw back from Alba ryia to the west. British military sources at London said that the Germans were punching at- the main defense line running from Mount Olympus west ward in the general direction of Corizza from which the Greeks had withdrawn, giving up much of the ground they had won in Albania to avoid being trapped by the German advance from Yugoslavia.

LONDON, April 10 (UP) — German .planes rained bombs on Belfast and almost the whole of northern Ireland for hours during the night in a blitz attack, and bombed towns in northwest, and northeast England heavily. The northern Ireland ministry 1 of public security asserted that the bombings in .some areas were "vicious and indiscriminate" and it was indicated that both dajnage and casualties were heavy in Belfast, a city of 440,000 people and a great shipbuilding and linen center. Belfast had been attacked in pulsed in preliminary fighting as j fP rce . on , ,^ e L ni ^ ht .° r April _7 but the Nazis sought to find a soft spot according to Athens reports. The mountain passes in this section were regarded at Athens as strongly defended and so rugged that they would provide formidable obstacles for German mechanized units, although the danger remains •that the allied defenders would be encircled if the through elsewhere. Nazis broke was indicated this attack was the most serious which northern Ireland had suffered since the war began. The Belfast communique said: "A heavy force of bombers carried out an attack lasting several hours over an area covering; practically the whole of northern Ireland.

(UP) — Yugoslav furc-es, rallying with i aid of bat] weather which hampered the (ierman air force, have muled a bitf Clennaii armored c o I n m u north of Skoplje, advices fi'om the front said today. Since I he Hermans started their invasion with a terrible bombing- of Uel grade and an attack on southeast Yugoslavia which had taken them beyond Skoplje, the situation apparently has improved. Three days of nun, .snow and cloudy weather hampered the German air operations and enabled the Yugoslavs whose morale is high to rally for a renewed defense. General Milan Medic now promoted to Voidvode (comtnander-in- chief) bided his time until a German column of '100 tanks and 1000 trucks reached a deep canyon 01 the Ncroclinka River .north oi Skoplje. _ Near the Katchanic Pass me Yugoslav counter attack concentrated first on destroying the gasoline- supplies on which Nazi motorized columns depended and secondly against the German infantry force with the column. The result wa.s that the German motorized and m eel la nixed column was thrown back upon itself and the Yugoslavs entered Skoplje. It wns believed that they still held the city. In the bombing of Belgrade between 2000 and HOW) persons were killed and about one fifth of thc city destroyed. Most of the ruin was in the center of the city. The homo of American Minister Arthur Bliss Lande and the German legation were among the buildings wrecked. Lande. who left thc city with his wife and the legation staff, had a narrow escape and a harrowing experience.

Defending Ships Not A Matter of Aclminisl ration Policy, He Says WASHINGTON, April 111. UJPV- President Rooseveli is in a position today to continue or lit abandon his plan lo .send American merchant vessels into (he Keil Sea, but he is unqualiliedly committed to. defending them against attack if they enter those walers. What his Red Sea intentions aro j remained obscure after a press conference yesterday in which the president told questioners thai defense of American merchant vessels operating outside actual combat /ones was an obligation Imposed upon him by iVderal statute. He said it was not a matter of administration policy. But. on the specific question of protecting American ships in the Red Sea, Mr. RooseveH replied only that he did not. know of any of our ships in that area now and that he had no information that any would go there in the relatively near future. The matter arose in connection with Axis threat* that any vessels seeking to brlnr/ aid to tin- British by the Red Sen route would be attacked. Until last week the Red Sea wtu closed to American merchant vessels by a presidential prochitmUiot which established a combat '/otu at the point of entry from flu Indian Ocean.

Further details will be announced later." Two churches, a movie theatre. a library, a hospital, a nurses' 1 home, and many commercial prem- j ises and homes were ruined.
