By The Associated Press
LONDON, April 7-The Norwegian
government, declaring that a Nazi
force of approximately 200,000 would
make a "last desperate stand" in
Norway, appealed today to Sweden
to drop its neutrality and rescue
"what can be saved" of Norway.
"The general feeling in Norway,"
a statement-issued by the royal Nor-
wegian government said, "seems to
be that the war against the Germans
has reached the stage where neu-
trality has become a mere, empty
word, that both the Swedish people
and the government are in fact
aware of their moral responsibilities
and are prepared to assist in saving
what can be saved."
A Swedish communique issued
yesterday said a Swedish-Norwe-
gian volunteer assceiation had
been granted permission to train
200 of its voi-nteers at Swedish

military establishments. Th com-
munique gave no further details
about the "Volunteers for Norway"
movement.
The statement of the Norwegian
government said the Germans were
bringing heavy guns and other war
material into Norway, sending in
ammunition by air, increasing the
number of fortified U-boat pens, im-
proving their air fields and stocking
up supplies of gasoline.
The statement declared that Nor-
way with its 'mountains and fjords
was "easy to defend and fortification
work is going on today in Norway
on similar lines to those which have
been reported from the Bavarian
Alps. 14 is also known that the Ger-
mans all over the country have
planned destruction on the most
extensive scale.
The statement added that Nor-
wegian economy already had suf-

fered a hard blcw in the loss of the
greater part of its merchant navy
and "if the Germans are allowed

"The number of arrests is increas-

been German prisoners as now and
all reports also confirm that torture
is being increased.
