foes of the new order.
The 85-year-old chief of state

a radio address in which he fra
admitted to his uneasy countryj
that his own program for the re

and that French democracy
dead-in fact never had lived in
American pattern.
To Aid Against Russia
He aligned France squarely be
Germany in its fight against Ru
a fight which tonight found the G
man legions piercing deeper into
Ukraine in what Petain called
gantic tasks in developments to
East (he strongly accented
phrase) in defense of a civiliza

other indications of French coll
oration with Hitler.
The subsequent broadcast of C-
of State Henri Petain, despite re

States, served mainly to strengtl
the impression here that far-reai

France into Adolf Hitler's "new
der" in Europe.
Senator George (Dem.-Ga.), w
until recently was Chairman of
Senate Foreign Relations Com
tee, told reporters the partners
between Germany and France mi
mean the United States wouldr
it necessary to occupy such Fre
territories as Martinique in order
forestall any move by Germany.
He said the United States and
other Western Hemisphere repub
would refuse to recognize any ri
of Germany to exercise joint cont
over such territories.
George also remarked the Fran

As the Soviet-Nazi war theatre turned to the Ukraine region, the
Germans were reported in the region of Uman (1) and possibly in the
Dnepropetrovsk (2) area, forming a two-pronged drive threatening the
Black Sea naval base of Odessa (3). London reports expressed fear of
the fall of Nikolaev and Germans claimed the area of the Dnieper River
bend could be considered in Nazi hands.

Hemisphere Intervention
Means No Isolationism,
Council Head Declares
"We cannot frame a policy which
will adequately protect our interests
in this hemisphere which does not
involve open and continuous par-
ticipation in world affairs," Dr. Percy
W. Bidwell, director of studies of
the Council of Foreign Relations,
stated in his lecture yesterday for
the Graduate Study Program in Pub-
lic Policy in a World at War.
"Actually," Dr. Bidwell pointed out,
"the United States cannot be inter-
ventionist as respects Latin America
The last lecture of the Public
Policy series, to have been given
today by Prof. Edward Meade
Earle of Princeton University, has
been cancelled because of Profes-
sor Earle's illness.
and at the same time isolationist as
respects Europe and the Far East."
Proof of this, Dr. Bidwell indicated,
can be found in the "galvanic effect
of Hitler's victories in Europe early
last summer upon our policies in
this hemisphere. We felt ourselves
threatened by the world-shaking
events across the Atlantic. For the
moment the threat was indirect. We
were not menaced by the prospect of
an immediate attack on our shores.
The danger lay in a more vulnerable
part of the hemisphere, in South
We cannot defend the hemisphere
by a hemispheric policy, Dr. Bidwell
asserted. "No effective Latin Ameri-

BERLIN, Aug. 12.- German troops
stormed forward to the shores of the
Black Sea today, hemming in large
Russian forces in the Odessa area
and making the Red Army's posi-
tion in the Ukraine virtually unten-
able, German military sources de-
clared tonight.
They did not disclose where the
sea was reached, but earlier Ger-
man, Italian and Slovak forces were
reported moving down both banks of
the Bug River, and it appeared they
had followed that stream southward
toward Nikolaev, port of the Bug
estuary 70 miles northeast of Odessa.
Russians Cut Off
Since German and Rumanian
troops have stood for weeks on the
Dniester River south and west of
Odessa, the drive down the Bug has
virtually closed all land escape for
the Russians at both Odessa and
Ochakov, 40 miles east of Odessa, it
was said.
The Russians were described as
hastening to try to withdraw what
troops they could by sea, and DNB
said six Russian transportsshad been
sunk by bombers off Odessa.
Soviet Forces 'Sit Tight'
Other Russian forces were said to
be still sitting tight in "a small area"
to the eastward in the big bend of
the Dniester River, which swingsI
southeastward from Kiev and then
cuts back southwest to empty into
the Black Sea.
The broad-flowing Dnieper itself
was portrayed as under control of
German weapons below Kiev, making
Russian traffic along it virtually im-
possible. DNB said German gunfire
sank three gunboats in the lower
Dnieper Sunday and Monday and
that 27,000 tons of Soviet shipping
had been destroyed there.
Meanwhile Moscow reported Soviet

defenders battling desperately today
to stem German rushes into the
Ukraine, where the outcome of fight-
ing was obscure.
The early morning communique
said there was nothing important to
report from the front.
It was the first time since the war
began that a communique failed to
mention the areas in which fighting
Torpedo Boats.Destroyed
The communique asserted the Red
air force cooperated with land troops
attacking German motorized and
mechanized units and infantry. It
also reported the destruction Monday
of four German torpedo boats and
two transports by the Baltic fleet.
Russian fliers were credited with
destruction of 41 planes as compared
with a loss of 34 in air fighting Sun-
day. Final results of Monday night's
German raid on Moscow showed the
Germans lost two planes, the com-
munique said.

Japan Plans
Near Siam
Manuila Reports Nipponese
roop Will Enter Thai
To Meet British Forces
MANILA, Aug. 12.-(OP)-The Jap-
anese High Command is planning to
place 180,000 troops in French Indo-
China, the majority of them in West
Cambodia adjoining the border of
Thailand, it was learned authorita-
tively tonight.
Foreign observers agree the Jap-
anese will enter Thailand when they
are organized and prepared to, meet
British troops now stationed in Bur-
ma and British Malaya along the
west and northwestern Thai border."
The number of troops the Japan-
ese are reported planning to move
into Indo-China is far greater than
has previously been mentioned. It
was announced officially by the
French Indo-China government July
30 that under last month's agree-
ment with Tokyo the Japanese would
move only 40,000 troops into south-
ern Indo-China to occupy military
bases granted Japan on its demand.
In northern Indo-China the Jap-
anese last September were given per-
mission to garrison 6,000 troops, but
the number later was swollen to
38.000 -actually there. Then the
northern forces were decreased.
I arrived in Manila from Indo-
China aboard a vessel carrying 55
American evacuees, a majority of
whom are missionaries. The Ameri-
cans felt Japanese control of Indo-
China had eliminated the possibility
of future religious and business ac-
tivities in the French colony.
Indo-China has been completely
occupied by the Japanese army-,
which controls all transpor'tation fa-
cilities and all internal communica-
tions and navigation at Indo-China's
principal ports.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 12.-()--By
the breath-taking margin of a single
vote, the House tonight passed the
Army Service Extension Bill.
With the chamber tense and
hushed, Speaker Rayburn announced
the result as 203 to 202 for the meas-
ure. Rep. Short (Rep.-Mo.), from the
Republican committee table, imme-
diately demanded a recapitulation,
which Rayburn granted. The reca-
pitulation, a form of recount, showed
the same result.
In its final form, the bill called for
an eighteen-month extension of the
service of draftees, National Guards-
men, Reservists rand army enlisted
Service Bonus Granted
It also would grant a $10 bonus for
each month spent in the army be-
yond 12. In addition it removed the
limitation of 900,000 upon the num-
ber of draftees who may be simul-
taneously in the army. All these
provisions were included in the bill
passed by the Senate last week.
The measure is now expected to
go to a Senate-House conference
committee which will iron out minor
differences in the legislation as it
passed the two chambers. Under the
usual Congressional rules, matter ap-
proved by both houses cannot be
stricken from the bill in conference.
Service Extended 18 Months
Early in today's fight the House
had accepted the Senate's provision
extending the active service of army
personnel for 18 months.
The provision, sponsored by ad-
ministration leaders, took the form
of an amendment to the bill which
originally called for an indefinite ex-
tension of service. The amendment
went through on a voice vote after
the rejection of a proposal that the
additional service be confined to six
months. This proposal, offered by
Rep. Hinshaw (Rep.-Calif.), was re-
jected 97 to 61.
Short Amendment Killed
The first test came on an amend-
ment by Rep. Short (Rep.-Mo.) elim-
inating from the resolution a decla-
ration that "the national interest is
imperiled" by events abroad. The
amendment, which also provided the
extended service of selectees should
be on a voluntary rather than a com-
pulsory basis, was rejected by a teller
vote of 185 to 146.
The balloting followed party lines
almost exclusively. When a division
vote was called for prior to the final
teller ballot on the issue, members
on the Republican side stood up vir-
tually en masse in support of the
