Priee Charges
Violated Pledge
Caused 'Leak'
Kellemns' Letters to
Nazi Investigated
Before News 'Break'
WASHINGTON, April 8.- (P)-
Censorship Director Byron Price im-
plied today that somebody in the
government violated a pledge to keep
intercepted foreign mail secret and
that's how letters of Vivien Kellems
to a German count became public.
Price told Senator Reed (Rep.,
Kas.) that his office has been inves-
tigating since 1942 attempts by Zed-
litz "to maintain a line of communi-
cation between Berlin, Buenos Aires
and the United States." Moreover,
he said, an inquiry has been started
into the "leak" that made Miss Kel-
lems' letters public property.
Coffee used quotations from the
letters to criticize the businesswoman
who suggested businesses skip income
tax payments if necessary to set up
post-war reserves. The Congressman
said she was the sweetheart of the
Nazi count.
Her tart denial was followed by a
demand by Senator Reed (Rep., Kas.)
for an investigation of how her let-
ters got into other hands. He said he
expected the inauiry to be ordered by
the Senate post office committee as
soon as Chairman McKellar (Dem.,
Tenn.) returns to Washington.

6aiter 1944

Associated Press War Analyst
A Russian-Allied siege ring is vir-
tually complete about Hitler's inner
fortress and foreshadows possible
early collapse of the Balkan segment
of the Axis defensive arch.
The junction was effected in south-
eastern Rumania when American
heavy bombers based in Italy started
blasting such Nazi supply hubs as
Bucharest and Ploesti at indicated
specific Russian request. There were


,& A y-
oV" ¢

in these

intimations from both London and
Naples that Allied air power is to
play an increasingly important role
in the Balkans as the Russian ad-
vance into Rumania develops.
Design Takes Shape
It is the first staff implementation
of the strategic design for three-point
war on Germany laid at Teheran. It
makes the Allied air bombardment of
Hungarian and Rumanian targets
the most significant development of
last week in the European war thea-
There were repeat Allied bombings
from Italy of Bulgarian targets also
during the week. Since Bulgaria is
not at war with Russia, however, they
fall into a different category although
they serve to illustrate the fact that
Bulgaria rather than doubly war-
stricken Rumania, now under the
heel of the Nazi boot, is the weakest
link in Hitler's Balkan military
Berlin Worried About Bulgaria
Berlin likely is more worried about
Bulgaria than Rumania, and with
good reason. Sustained Allied air
attack on Nazi communications in
Rumania could make Bulgarian rail-
roads urgently necessary for Nazi use
tQ bolster her Black Sea flank. Ger-
man use of the roads unopposed by
the Bulgarian authorities would cre-
ate a Russian-Bulgarian crisis.
There seems -little hope of more
than unorganized guerrilla resistance
to the Nazis in Rumania, for the
present at least. The Nazi coup that
took over a wavering Rumania war
ally was apparently complete. Ger-
man military deployments in the
country and its close proximity to the
Reich itself made that possible.
Occupation Would Be Difficult
Similarly swift complete Nazi occu-
pation of Bulgaria would be less easy.
It is more remote from Germany-
and more disaffected due to the Rus-
sian leanings of its people. The Bul-
garian army is intact, having con-

I tributed nothing to the ill-starred
Nazi war effort against Russia.
In Washington, President Roose-
velt noted enthusiastically during the
week the swift Russian progress. He
said to a press conference that the
Red Army advance to the Carpathi-
ans had given the Russians more
places to go-to the west, the south-
west or the south.
Geographically translated, west
would mean a Russian drive north of
the Carpathians into western Poland
and toward Germany's own pre-war
frontiers. That is even now impend-
ing in the Lwow sector:
Route for Russia
Southwest would mean the drive
into Rumania's Danube Valley via
the Galati gateway now in progress.
That is the route from the east for a
Russian thrust across the top of the
whole Balkan peninsula to meet an
always possible Allied invasion from
the west.
The President's reference to a pos-
sible Russian drive south is not so
clear. Short of a Russian march into
Rumania's southern neighbor, Bul-
garia, there remains in that direction
only the Bulgarian Black Sea coast
from the Dniester to the Rumanian-
Bulga'rian border to be Russian-
taken. That gives Mr. Roosevelt's
words a possible ominous significance
for Bulgaria. It amounts to a cryptic
warning of what might happen if she
fails to desert her Nazi alignment in
time, or affords Germany any aid and
comfort against Russia.
Speed of Red
Drive Puzzles
Allied Generals
Associated Press Correspondent
LONDON, April .-American and
British generals planning the invasion
of western Europe would like to know
how the Russians are able to move so
fast against the Germans, and would
like to be permitted by Moscow to
study the problem first hand.
The speed of the Russian advance
is as much a puzzle to American and
British military leaders as to the man
in the streets, and thus they are
lacking information which might aid
the forthcoming assault on Hitler's
western wall.
The chief problem in western front
preparations is supply, and the Allies
-and undoubtedly the Germans too
-would like to know how the Red
Army is able to maintain its supply
system over hundreds of miles of
devastated land to keep pace with the
swift advance of its forces.
The Russians have been reluctant
to permit Allied military observers
or newspapermen to go to the front,
"It is a source of constant amaze-
ment how the Russians are able to
go on week after week," said one Am-
erican general, who has handled sup-
plies in Africa, Italy as well as Eng-
land. "It is something we would like
to be able to study at first hand.
