break off diplomatic relations with Vichy's week-end was one of public uneasiness and intense governmental activity This capital is of conflicting authentic information be- to approaching a rupture be- tween the United States and France would be the deepest to France since its defeat by and French official circles seem dent to-day that nothing of the sort is in the air Never has America and cans been shown more friendliness by the French than during recent dramatic days And Marshal himself and his entourage con- to emphasise the Chief of State's for Ambassador William B interesting contrast to the attitude of the Paris Press As for yesterday's BBC that is dismissed as mere British propaganda Week-end meetings held between the Chief of Henri Philippe and various members of the Government haps the most important of all was that on Saturday night between Vice Premier Admiral Jean North African General Maxime Jacque Vichy tive in Paris for the and Georges Vichy's Ambassador to on all questions to French war prisoners The confused situation hereabouts may well last for some according to well informed sources It appears likely that Vichy is awaiting new proposals from the Germans Otto ler's emissary to left there for Berlin on Saturday and has not yet returned A NEW PUZZLE A new puzzle developed on when the Important Cabinet meeting slated for that day was postponed The reason given here is that the been making n i a t inh before announcing his decision to the now scheduled at 5 o'clock to-day Between complete acceptance of German demands and blunt refusal there is plenty of leeway But the announcement to-day to the effect that General Weygand is to return immediately to his North African without at- tending the Council of Ministers meeting this be taken as indication that France has taken its l has yet been issued on the outcome of this afternoon's ing of the Vichy Cabinet which was presided over by Marshal Petain Lyons radio stated that the com- would be issued later this evening and another message from Vichy said it was not considered that any important decision would be announced b General Weygand who has having talks with Marshal Petain and Admiral Darlan left by plane to return to Algiers this afternoon It was not quite clear whether he attended that Cabinet meeting or not JSome reports said he did and others that he did not attend the session before the meeting of the an unofficial Vichy man was reported to have told the Press that General Weygand was summoned to Vichy because his Government wanted to ward off any events which might follow the was being prepared The not specify what action was Earlier reports suggested that the Cabinet was meeting to consider the decision which the Vichy ers had presumably reached on the German demands for the control of French Empire bases It was thought in Berlin that while Marshal Petain and General Weygand had shown some tion about accepting the German Admiral Darlan was re- pared to meet them in spite of the unfavourable reactions such a deci- sion might have in the United reported to be reviewing the position of French possessions in the western since the occupation by Germany of bases in

relations with Government contingent on the de- to be to-day by the Petain Cabinet and it was reported that relations would be severed if the Vichy Government accedes to the latest German collaboration de- mands and permits the Nazis to which they in de- fending the French Empire involved include bases on the Atlantic coast in French African colonies Officials were chary on formal comment but there seemed a disposition to ex- the worst from at Some quarters opined the Vichy Government had a definite purpose in view on Saturday when they re- leased statements made in a Paris interview by the envoy in the Fernand de Brinon These sources pointed out the mary of de remarks was that had decided fo accept the Nazi version of world as opposed the Anglo- American concept It was pointed out that any programme allotting Germany a share in defending French possession would ately bring into question the status of French colonial holdings in the western the island of Officials apparently entertained only a small hope that last-minute United States diplomatic efforts might off a collaboration de- at Vichy The possibility the United States might be forced to sever relations caused conjecture whether the United States might then extend recognition to the Free French forces It is known that the United States regards the Nazi demand for French bases along the Atlantic and in the Mediterranean as a preliminary to a gigantic Axis with Japan thrusting at Britain from the east while Germany strikes from the west Meanwhile the entire Iberian peninsula and Spanish and Portuguese island possessions Europe and Africa provide the Germans numerous bases for- air and sub- marine warfare against British sels in South Atlantic shipping bloc to main event which is yet to
