British Isles Combat New
German Aerial Attacks;
Scotland Is Bombed
Britain's Downfall
PredictedBy DNB
(By The Associated Press) -
LONDON, June 27 (Thursday).-
(A)-Britons were cheered today by
reports from Gibraltar that powerful
units of the French fleet-perhaps
the greater part of it-have steamed
to North African ports for a "fight'
to the finish" despite the Petain
Government's armistice.
They received the news as they
fought off another of the German
pre-dawn raids fast becoming a
nightly circumstance of British life.'
The raids, from Southeastern Eng-
land to Northern Scotlan, were the
sixth in nine days. Bombs were
dropped in Northeastern Scotland.
Warships Leave Strait
From Gibraltar it was reliably re-
ported that French warships and
fighting planes of the West Medi-
terranean command left the Strait
to a rendezvous in Casablanca Har-
bor, on the Atlantic coast of French
There General Auguste Nogues,
French North African commander,
has declared: "We'll fight it out"
despite the Bordeaux Government's
To Support Nogues
Commanders of the French war-
ships were reported -to have assured
General Nogues they would back up
his pledge to fight.
"(It was believed by observers that
the greater part of the French fleet
has been stationed in the Western
Mediterranean, near Gibraltar.)
At Gibraltar unconfirmed reports
also were heard that General Nogues
had ordered immediate arrest of
Edouard Daladier, former Premier
of France who went to Casablanca
to confer with the General.
Guarded official accounts of an
audacious British raid on German-
held positions along the Continental
coastline were taken in some quar-
ters as suggesting the start of a cam-
paign of harassment to prevent the
Nazis from using certain coast bases
for invasion of England.
Britain To Be Bombed
BERLIN, June 26.-(IP)-Destruc-
tion of the British Empire was pre-
* dicted anew tonight by the German
press but first, said DNB, official
news agency, will come a "thousand-
fold" counter-blow for nightly Bri.-
tish air raids on Germany.
The agency acknowledged that the
British on the night of June 20
alone dropped 371 bombs on German
soil, killing 16 persons and woundii1
41, but contended that British bomb-
sighting reflected "general nervous-
ness in Britain."
While Germany gathered strength
for the effort at a final smash
against the British it was disclosed
that Adolf Hitler, sight-seeing in
fallen Paris, had visited the tomb
of Napoleon, whose own idea once
was to crush the British.
Airports Bombed
As territorial provisions of the
German-French armistice set the
stage for a new phase of the war
against Britain, the high command
announced that "several airports
and airplane factories" in Central
England were bombed in the night.
Attacks on such Central England
towns as Bellingham identified as a
munitions making center, have
shown that the "small island, with
its concentrated industrial centers,
is easily reachable by German Stu-
kas (dive bombers) and bonbers,"
observed the commentary Dienst Aus
The high command also announced
further British raids on Northern
and Western Germany, but contend-

ed that no military targets were hit.

'The Critic'
To Continue
Run_ Today
William B. Sheridan's 18th century
farce, "The Critic," will continue its
four day run at 8:30 p.m. today in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre under
the direction of Prof. William P. Hal-
stead of the speech department.
The comedy, according to Profes-
sor Halstead, is particular'ly interest-
ing because it combines 18th century
dialogue in the main plot with 16th
century dialogue used in "the play
within the play."
Starred in "The Critic" are James
Moll as Mr. Puff, the empressario;
June Madison as Timburina, the
heroine of "the play within the play,"
and Roy Rector, star of last year's
Union Opera, as Wiskerandos, the
Spanish hero.

TORONTO, June 26.-()-The
Toronto Retail Fuel Dealers' Asso-

Reason: "We need more metal,

The new era was announced in a
message to workers by the All-Union
Central Council , of Trade-Unions,
which explained that war-inspired
production speed-ups in capitalist
countries have made it necessary to
junk the 5-day, 35-hour week and
step up to the 6-day, 48-hour shift.
Even with this drastic increase, the
message insisted, the Soviet working
day still will be the shortest in the
world, for in other countries "the
thumb-screw of capitalist exploitation
has been tightened to the limit."
Though such "universal militariza-
tion of their economy," the message
continues, the "imperialist states have
tremendously increased their' produc-
tion of all armaments."
Hence drastic measures are neces-
sary to step up Soviet arms produc-
tion, too, for the frenzy of war pro-

United States
Moves To Buy
War Material
WASHINGTON, June 26.-(0P-
The United States began bargaining
with British and Dutch interests for
huge. quantities of rubber from the
Orient for defense purposes today
and simultaneously sent more pur-
chasing power and another man-o'a
war to South America.
Shortly after President Roosevelt
had signed' a bill authorizing the
Reconstruction Finance Corporation
to finance the acquisition of strate-
gic war materials, Jesse H. Jones
announced that he was negotiating
with the International Rubber reg-
ulating committee, which controls
virtually all rubber production and
sale throughout the world.
The increased purchasing power
provided South America was in the
form of a $20,000,000 loan by the
Export-Import Bank to the Govern-
ment and Central Bank of Argen-
tina. This sum was made available
to finance the purchase of industrial,
construction and transportation ma-
terials and equipment in the United
Granting on the loan, next to the
largest ever made by the bank to a
South American country, was an-
nounced as press dispatches reported
that Nazi agents were trying to ar-
range huge barter deals in Argen-
tina and Uruguay.
A fourth United States warship
was dispatched to South America,
meantime, on what was officially
announced as a "friendly visit."
Lewis Compton, Acting Secretary
of the Navy, announced that the
10,000-ton light cruiser Phoenix had
been ordered to proceed from its
station in the Pacific to Valparaiso,
Chile, the first stop on a tour of
South American ports. The cruisers
