forever," but if it is won, "the fate
of our enemies will be sealed."
Advanced British striking forces,
bombers and motorized troops, oper-
ated west of the fallen Italian base
of Derna toward Bengasi today, me-
thodically clearing the way for the
expected general assault upon that
important naval center and capital
of eastern Libya.
Official news was scarce, but it
appeared the same program that re-
duced Bardia and Tobruk, and yes-
terday Derna, was at work again-
-dashes of reconnaissance and at-
trition by Britain's dusty tanks and
an endless offensive patrol of the air
by British bombers.
The Royal Air Force told of a
heavy bombardment of the Italian
air base at Barce, 120 miles beyond
Derna on the road to Bengasi, an-
nouncing its day-long activities of
yesterday had been "mainly focus-
sed" on that military settlement.
'The airdrome was declared to have
been repeatedly attacked, and direct
hits were claimed on hangers and
other buildings. A single Italian
plane was reported downed.
The British command itself covered
its activities on every front-from
Libya to the fighting along the fron-
tier areas of Italian Somaliland 2,000
miles to the south-in ten words:
"On all fronts operations continue
to develop to ouradvantage."
From Kenya itself it was reported
Nigerian troops operating in the
coastal sector had joined the British
in harrying the Italians in Italian
Somaliland, destroying the village
of kiamboni and meeting not a sin-
gle Fascist soldier.
The town, said to have been a cen-
ter of Italian native troop activity,
was reported burned by the Nigerians,
who were aided in the operation by
ships of the Kenya coastal defenses,
which transported troops.
The RAF reported here new bomb-
ing attacks upon Moyale, which lies
in the Kenya-Ethiopian zone of fight-
ing. Italian artillery and infantry po-
sitions were attacked.
On the, other side of the globe
peace came as French Indo-China
ended four months of undeclared war-
fare along their 1,000-mile jungle-
covered border today with an arm-
istice drafted by Japanese mediators
and signed at 6 p.m. (7 a.m., E.S.T.)
aboard the Japanese light cruiser
The agreement left Thai forces in
possession of several areas in Cam-
bodia, southern Indo-China, and one
section in Laos, in the north. It es-
tablished a neutral zone extending
ten kilometers (6.21 miles) on either
side of a line fixed as the front at
the official hour of cessation of hos-
tilities, 10 a.m., Jan. 28 (although
fighting actually continued some
hours longer.)

Roosevelt Is Silent
On Hitler Address
WASHINGTON, Jan. 31.- (1P) -
President Roosevelt declined today to
comment in the speech in which
Adolf Hitler said yesterday that ships
carrying American aid to Britain
would be torpedoed.
The truth of the matter, he said
at a press conference, was that he
had not read the speech, because he
was having a birthday and was busy.
"The speechwastmeant for your
birthday," a reporter remarked.

'Expenses Nearly Three
Times Reported Total,
Senator Gillette Believes
(By The Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24-A "rough
guess" that between $50,000,000 and
$60,000,000 was spent on political
campaigns leading up to the recent
elections came yesterday from Sen-
ator Guy M. Gillette (D) of Iowa,
Chairman of the special Senate
Committee investigating campaign
The Senator's estimate was based
on a report approved by the investi-
gating Committee which showed
that contributions aggregating $24,-
174.223 and expenditures amounting
to $22,740,313 actually were reported
by national, state, and senatorial
More Than Reported1
"I believe expenditures probably
were three times the reported total,"
Senator Gillette said. "The Com-
mittee compilation does not include
campaign funds used by county or
local candidates and committees. It
does not include campaign costs for
Housencandidates. It does not in-
clude hundreds who are under no
legal requirement to make reports
such as money spent for newspaper
and billboard advertising within
tate and local jurisdictions.
"No one could make an accurate
estimate on the total campaign
The report, approved by the Com-
mittee and to be sent to the Senate
later, said Republican organizations
reported spending $14,941,143, and
receiving $16,476,040, and Democrat-
ic groups listed $6,095,357 in expen-
ditures. and $6,284,463 in contribu-j

Among expenditures by other po-
litical groups was $89,500 by the
Communist Party, and $377,000 by
the Committee to Uphold Constitu-
tional Government.
