U.S. Aid To Russia
Worries Nipponese
SHANGHAI, July 1.-MP)-On the
eve of an expected announcement by
Japan of, her position in the Ger-
man-Russian war, Germany and
Italy and their Axis satellites tbday
granted Japan's request and ac-
corded recognition to the Japanese-
sponsored Nanking government of
China, headed by Premier Wang
This Axis recognition came a full
17 months after estatlishment of
the Wang regime to rule Japanese-
conquered areas of China, but only
10 days after Germany invaded
War Stand Expected
After deliberating almost con-
stantly since outbreak of Russian-
German hostilities, the Japanese,
government, according to the au-
thoritative Japanese news agency
Domei, was expe'cted to state tomor-
row whether it has made a choice
between Germany, its Axis partner,t
and Russia, with whom it has a neu-
trality pact.
This recognition of the Wang re-R
gime appeared to have been timed to
influence Japan's decision, or per-
haps to make payment for pledges
already undertaken by Tokyo.
At Chungking, the government of
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek in-
structed its diplomatic representa-
tives in Germany and Italy to re-
turn to China."
U.S. Worries Japan
The Axis move came amid mount-
ing indication that Japan had cast
her lot with Germany against Rus-
sia, her old-time Far-Eastern rival.
Japan has been reported worried
over the possibility of United States

can aid to Russia, which might be

Joining Germany and Italy in rec-
ognizing the Nanking regime as the
Nationalist Government of China
were Rumania, Bulgaria, Slovakia,
' Croatia and Hungary, all minor Axis
partners, and Spain, whose govern-s
ment is an outspoken enemy of Com-
munist Russia.
Russia, before signi g its treaty1
with Japan three months ago, gave[
much material help to Generalissimo
Chiang Kai-shek in his war againstt
The move was announced in Tokyoc
as "a telling blow to those who, hav-
ing not yet realized the great ideal
of the establishment of an East Asia
new order, continue to follow a policyt
of resistance against Japan."
U.S. Is Preparing
To Rush Supplies'
To Soviet Uniont
WASHINGTON, July 1.-(P)-The
United States prepared to do its ut-
most today to comply with an official
Russian request for help in rushing!
supplies to the embattled Soviet
Sumner Welles, the acting secre-

tary of state, disclosed that the Rus-
ian ambassador, Constantin Ouman-
sky, presented the request yesterday.
It has been forwarded, he added, to
all the interested governmental de-,
Since Russia is a belligerent in the
war, and such information might,
come under the heading of data use-
ful to Hitler's armies, Welles declined
to say what weapons or other arti-
cles were on Oumansky's list.;
Authoritative sources said the or-
ders would not be a part of the
American lease-lend 'program, but
would be 'strictly business transac-
tions," with payment being made by
the Soviet government.
The Russians, it was learned, are
seeking the assistance of the United
States government in placing orders
here and in securing priorities,
wherever possible in order to expe-
dite deliveries.

Jesse S. Reeves Discusses
Foreign, DomesticPolicy

To Talk Today

Finding a statesman who can com-
bine the idea of immediate gain with
the concept of long range advan-
tages is one of thie major difficulties
of a democracy, Prof: Jesse S. Reeves,
William W. Cook Professor of Ameri-
can Institutions, pointed out in a
lecture yesterday, adding that even
when such a statesman is found
there is continually a conflict with
those who persist in thinking only
in terms of present advantage.
Professor Reeves' lecture opened a
series of twenty sponsored by the
Graduate Study Program in Public
Policy in a World at War. His sub-
ject was "Interrelation of the Do-
mestic and Foreign Policies of a Na-
The government of no country will
take on a foreign policy contrary to
its national interests, Professor
Reeves stated. The formation of pol-
icy, he noted, involves alternatives,
and the limits of choice within for-
eign policy is the limits set do'wn by
international law. Differences of
opinion make peaceful change nearly
impossible, he stated, saying that na-
tionalism, seeking change, leads to
a need for self-sufficiency, which in
turn leads to autocracy, not peaceful
isolation, but warlike change, and the
more complete the self-sufficiency
the greater its international signifi-
cance and danger.
As one factor in a number leading
to the development of what is known
as "power politics," Professor Reeves
traced the result of the combination
of the industrial revolution and the
French Revolution. The industrial
revolution, he said, led to the shrink-
age of the earth through technologi-
cal advances, bringing peoples and

national army rather than a small
group of professional soldiery, and
universal military service. The com-
bination of these two led to a com-
parative armaments race among
countries which the United States
joined in after the Spanish,American
Lands, peoples and boundaries play
an important part in the determina-
tion of policy, Professor Reeves main-
tained. Since there are no more free
lands to be occupied, when a coun-
try needs more territory today it
must take it from an already occu-
pied country, he pointed out, while
boundaries set off one legal order
from another, as each state repre-
sents its own legal order.
The last great migration of peo-
ples, he noted, was that of the 19th
century from over-crowded Europe to
the United States. Now, Professor
Reeves stated, it has become neces-
sary to place restrictions on immi-
gration, and domestic policy in re-
gard to immigration has had a great
influence in the formulation of for-
eign policy.

Heavy Nazi Losses Told
As Fierce Battle Rages
Over Eastern Sectors
No Advances Made
At Finnish Frontier
(By The Associated Press)
MOSCOW, Wednesday, July 2.-
Red Army troops supported by a tre-
mendous artillery barrage have
checked the German invaders of
Russia on the Minsk front with
heavy losses, the Soviet Information
Bureau stated today, in announcing
a series of defense successes against
numerically superior foes from Mur-
mansk to southern Poland.
Lwow, Poland, hotly contested al-
most since the German invasion be-
gan June 22, finally was evacuated
by Russian forces, thehinformation
bureau announced. The city's loss
previously had been announced as
occurring Monday, due to a Hun-
garian flanking maneuver, but later
this was said to have been prema-
Elsewhere, all up and down the
great battle line, the Russians said
they were holding firm, although
exact locations were not specified.
German Losses Heavy
Large German losses in manpower
and equipment were claimed every-
where, particularly around Minsk,
capital of Whiterussia, and Luck, in
Southern Poland.
(A German military spokesman
said Monday that Minsk had been
captured, but there were later indi-
cations that the racing German
panzer units had merely swept around
In the Dvinsk sector the story was
the same: heavy German losses in-
flicted by Red Army forces barring
the Nazis' path over the western
Dvina River. There the German in-
fantry was in support of the tanks,
On the Finnish front, big battles
raged in two areas: Kakisalmi on the
Karelian Isthmus and Murmansk,
the ice-free Russian Arctic port. In
both cases the Finnish-German at-
tackers were'stopped, the Russian an-
nouncement said, although they were
far superior in numbers to the Rus-
sian defenders.
Lwow's Loss Admitted
The loss of Lwow was admitted in
a single cipped sentencel: "Our
troops, retreating according to pan,
and in accordance with orders, left

The Russian communique heaped
scorn on the Rumanian forces on the
Bessarabian front, saying they had
been unable to gain and that Ruman-
ian generals "duped by Hitler were
cruelly disillusioned."
The Russians reiterated the charge
that the Rumanian allies of Germany
had been sent into battle ahead of
German units, to face certain death,
with German machine-guns trained
on their backs to make sure they did
not falter.
South Front Quiet
This southernmost front apparently
was the quietest of all. It was stated,
however, that Russian planes again
bombed Constanta, Rumania's Black
Sea port, and there were reports that
seven German submarines had been
sunk in the Black Sea and the Baltic.
The biggest Nazi thrust continued
to be concentrated in the central
The main German push to the
south and east of Minsk, a drive
which the Russians emphasized was
by "superior enemy forces," reached
the vicinity of Bobruisk and was
poised there either to wheel north-

east with other columns striking at
Moscow or south down the Dnieper
River basin into the Ukraine to join
forces with German troops striking
into that rich wheat region from

LONDON, Wednesday, July 2.-(IP)'
-Gen. Sir Archibald P. Wavell, Bri-
tish middle eastern commander-in-
chief whose desert armies drove the
Italians deep into Libya before be-
ing forced back by the Germans, to-
day was transferred to India., ex-
changing posts with Gen. Sir Claude
Auchinleck who is almost unknown
to the general public.
No reason was given in the an-
nouncement made at No. 10 Downing
Street, residence of Prime Minister
Winston Churchill.
But this surprise military shakeup
which stunned Britons was predicted
by some who claimed:
1. General Wavell had been shelved

in directing the British attack on
Narvik, Norway, his organization of
English coastal defenses, and long
career in India.'
But he has long been an advocate
of the new defensive warfare in-
volving mobility and surprise.
Evidence that British leaders con-
sider the middle eastern command
all the more vital now that Germany
is marching into Russia was seen in
the simultaneous appointment of
Capt. Oliver Lyttleton as Minister of
State and member of the war cabi-
net to represent the cabinet in the
Middle East.
Lyttleton relinquished his post as
head of the Board of Trade Sunday.

erfiment's "promising young men"
will be on hand to handle the armis-
tice terms.
Those who hold that General Wa-
vell has been "given a rest," that is,
demoted, point to the British public's
dismay and anger when Nazi troops
smashed through his desert armies
in Libya and overwhelmed Crete.
The Middle-Eastern command's
admission before the onslaught on
Crete that the island could be de-
fended with available RAF support
was said to have weighed heavily
against the General in judgment of
that defeat.
But others said Wavell's shift. to
India was further proof of the gov-
ernment's fears of a German strike
