Soviet Prepared To Back
Eastern Borders Against
Aggressions Of Fascists
On Nanking Policy
Foreign Minister Yvon Delbos of
France frankly told the Chamber of
Deputies yesterday that the Brussels
Conference had failed in its efforts
to mediate the Chinese-Japanese
From Moscow issued an order by
the commander of the Far Eastern
army declaring that Russia was pre-
pared to defend her Far Eastern
border against "the fascist block."
China's leaders at Nanking were
debating last nightwhether to de-
fend the capital at all costs or, by
voluntary withdrawal as the Jap-
anese approached, to save it from
destruction by warplanes and guns.
Defending the People's Front gov-
ernment's peace policy from com-
munist attack, Delbos declared the
Conference, even though failing in its
aim, had given concrete proof of the
union of France, Britain and the
United States against the diplomacy!
The French Foreign office con-
firmed the fact that Japan had re-
served the right to seize shipments
of arms to China frpm French Indo-
China after they crossed the border.
The use of the French railway into
Yunnan province has been barred to
transport of munitions for China.
Delbos told the deputies that a new
step to end the Oriental War must be
taken "at Geneva," but after leaving

PARIS, Nov. 19.-(P)-The People's
Front Government was given an
overwhelming vote of confidence to-
night after Premier Camille Chau-
temps told the Chamber of Deputies
that investigation of secret revolu-
tionary societies had disclosed a sit-
uation of "terrible g'ravity."
The chamber gave the Govern-
ment a vote of 399 to 160 when
Chautemps concluded his speech in
which he pledged the cabinet to pre-
serve "republican order" at home
and defend peace abroad.

Large stores of arms and ammuni-

uncover the financial and political
