SAIGON, French Indo-China, Wednesday, July 39.-()-A convoy of
15 Japanese naval ships arrived here today with troops as the Japanese
sped the occupation of bases in Indo-China.
The arrivals here followed the movement of Nipponese forces into
nearly Camranh, French Indo China naval base 800 miles from Manila.
Thus proceeded in force the occupation of eight air bases and five
garrison posts which, it was annbunced officially today, will put a total of
40,000 Japanese troops in southern

Saigon was calm, preparing for
reception of the Japanese army of

Citizens were warned against anti-
Japanese demonstrations, and news-

lucky to have avoided the kind of
war into which Syria was propelled.
There were unconfirmed . reports
to the effect Japan had served new

Dutch Action
This action of the Dutch colnial
government (which will permit ship-
ments of oil only under specific gov-
ernment~ approval followed closely
upon .new and stricter rationing of
gasoline for the relatively few private
cars operating. It seemed likely that
taxicabs would be limited to seven
;allons of gasoline a month, begin-
ning in August.
American and other foreign firms
whose assets had been frozen in re-
taliation for similar action by the
British-U.S. bloc of nations were
virtually at a standstill, and there
were no clear indications as to when
jhey would be able to operate again.
U. S. Assets
American citizens without a supply
of money simply were doing without.
The only U.S. firms whose assets
were not blocked were those -more
than 50 percent owned by Japanese
interests, such as plants of the In-
ternational General Electric.
As to the adtion of the Dutch East
Indies it was jasserted here the colo-
nial ,government was a tool of the
United States and Britain, and it
gas clear the situation was becom-
ing more tense.

U.S. Advancing
Toward War,
Churchill Says
(By The Associated Press)
LONDON, July 29.-Prime Minis-
ter Winston Churchill told the Brit-
ish in a thunderous outpouring of
words that the United States "is
giving us aid on a gigantic scale and
is advancing in rising wrath and con-
viction to the very verge of war" on
Germany. But he warned his people
solemnly that they must count on
their own strength to repel any
September invasion gamble by Ger-
Successfully, he defended his gov-
ernment's direction of industry and
labor toward total war organization
in a long and trenchant speech which
inundated all but the sharpest peaks
of Parliamentary criticism. He ended
on a high note of resolve to, if need
be, "proffer the last drop of our
heart's blood" for Britain.
The Prime Minister refused flatly
to name a super-minister of produc-
tion, which a large number of his
press and Parliamentary critics had
demanded. He declared such an ap-
pointment would be a "fake and
fraud on the public" and challenged
the House of Commons to a vote of
confidence on the matter.
The debate on production ended
quickly without a vote and thus

nine actress, Crab, in the title role,
the 100th production of the Michigan
Repertory Players of the speech de-
partment, James Bridie's "Storm
Over Patsy," will be presented at
8:30 p.m. today in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre.
Purchased from the dog pound by
Prof. William P. Halstead of the
speech department, Crab has long
been a favorite of local audiences in
such plays as "Two Gentlemen of
Verona," " . . . One Third of a Na-
tion," "The World We Make," ana
"Hansel and Gretel."
In "Storm Over Patsy," Crab plays
a mongrel whose dog tax becomes
the source of misgivings to a large
number of people. A reporter's job
on a newspaper, two divorces, the
imprisonment of several individuate
and the election of a member t-o
Parliament finally hinge on a trial
involving the dog tax.
Based on the German play "Sturm
in Wasserglas" by Bruno Frank, who
is in exile in the United States, the
play is under the direction of Prof.
Claribel Baird of the speech depart-
ment at the Oklahoma College for
Women. Alexander Wyckoff is in
charge of scenery while Evelyn Co-
hen is costumiere.
Among the featured performers in
"Storm Over Patsy" are June Madi-
son as Mrs. Flanagan, James Moll as
Francis Burton, Clara Behringer as
Victorial Thomson, Lillian Canon as,

Unofficial Sources Declare
Germans Thrown Back
As Much As 100 Miles
Soviet Annihilation
Claimed By Berlin
MOSCOW, Wednesday, July 30.--
()-The German advance generally
has been checked and Nazi divisions
in many places have been forced to
retreat, the Soviet government said
today as the Red Army announced it
had thrown the Germans out of their
trenches in the Smolensk sector on
the front before Moscow.
Vice Commissar for Foreign Affairs
S. A. Lozovsky, who also is official
spokesman for the press, declared
leading Reichswehr units had been
driven into retreat by strong Soviet
tank forces.
Unofficial advices reported that
at some points German units -had
been thrown back as much as 100
miles from positions once reached
by Nazi spearheads.
One large-scale Red Army offen-
sive was reported in which the Rtis-
sians recaptured city "N" from the
German invaders after a two-day
battle involving infantry, artillery
and armored forces.
Official Analysis
Lozovsky, giving an official analy-
sis of the situation on the long,
bloody front, declared more than
9,000,000 men were locked in battle,
with the lines swaying in a highly
mobile campaign of attack and coun-
This sixth week of the war, he
said, is characterized by mobility,
and there are no signs anywhere of,
a "frozen front." Trenches have
been dug in some sectors, he said, +
but they are intended as; sprhig-
boards for action and not for posi-
tional warfare.
A series of Russian counter-at-
tacks, said-Lozovsky, have hurled the
Germans back in their main drives,
and action is continuing along the
front at other places on the flanks
in the German rear.
Some German units were reported
Eno'ugh To Spare
Despite German claims of destruc-
tion of the Russian air force and
tank power and manpower, Lozovky
declared "we still have enough to
spare of all of these."
The Red Army in its daily com-
munique announced the Germans
were thrown out of their trenches in
the vital Smolensk area in particu-
larly heavy fighting Monday and
Tuesday during which Nazi losses
were heavy.

Russian Annihilation
Claimed By Germans
BERLIN, July 29.-()-The Ger-
man Army was reported tonight to
have virtually annihilated' Russian
'forces encircled in the Smolensk area
and to have pressed forward to cre-
ate chaos in a surprise attack on the
multiple track rail line to Moscow.
German advance units, said the
official news agency DNB, made the
surprise attack east of Smolensk on
July 26, destroying 20 fully-laden
freight trains with 1,200 cars, a
thousand trucks and a great mass of
Soviet war materials.
Nearby roads were said to be
jammed with Russian columns when
the Germans opened fire, resulting,
DNB said, "in mad confusion as
shells burst among marching troops,
trucks caught fire and boxcars lod-
ed with munitions exploded."
DNB also reported a terrific one-
hour battle between Russian tanks
and a German anti-tank unit ad-
vancing southwest of Smolensk in.
the Mogilev area Monday, resulting
in destruction of 83 Russian tanks.

The High Command, reporting
progress in each of its four main
drives into Russia, stated the trapped
Russians in the Smolensk region
"have been vitually wiped out," and
informed quarters added that at-
tempts of remaining trapped troops
to break out of the ring have been
repulsed with bloody losses.

Campus Feels Repercussions

Repercussions of the border war
between far off Ecuador and Peru

when the 31 Ecuadorean students at

conditions at home.
Letters received from friends and
relatives in the South American re-
public painted vivid and disturbing
pictures of a once peaceful nation

Speaking of conditions in warring
Ecuador, Dr. Miguel Albornoz,. col-
umnist for "El Comercio," promi-

ganizer of the Quito 'group here,
pointed out that the army had al-
ready requisitioned all private auto-
mobiles in Ecuador, and that his
country was launching an "all-out"
war in "defense of her territories."
News received from soldiers return-
ing from the war front, Dr. Albornoz
indicated, told of alleged Japanese
and Italian participation in' the war
