ROME, May 19-Field Marshal Sir Harold Alexander declared today
that Marshal Tito apparently intended to resort to force in backing Yugo-
slavia's claims to northeastern Italy and southern Austria-a course of
action "all too reminiscent of Hitler, Mussolini and Japan."
Belgrade radio broadcast Tito's reply that the Yugoslav army, the
same as other Allied armies, had the right to remain in territory it liberated
and the presence of his troops in the disputed zone would not "prejudge
decisions of the peace conference as to whom these territories belong."

self sacrifice in this great war of
li:;eration," the agency quoted Tito
