The) planes inflicted heavy damage. The populace of Karar, of fled to tha hills for safety as recoinnaissance planes swooped down on that city, goal of the Italian Somaliland army which is on the line of march toward the capital of the emvire, Addis Ababa. A report from the southern front said thousands of troopi and civilians had been killed by the air raiders. Great Britain abruptly cancelled the cruise of her grand fleet to Greek waters and military quarters believed it would be kept around Gibraltar and the Suez Canal. Suez Canal stock dropped on the Paris bourse. Large scale British maneuvers began on Italy's route to East Africa. Authoritative circles in London made it clear, that any pro- posals for an Italo-Ethiopian peace must be submitted to the league of nations, thereby disposing of reports that yesterday's conference between Premier Laval of France and Ambassador Clerk of Great Britain had anything to do with peace proposals. A small body of British troops being sent to' Egypt from Bermuda rested only six hours at Southampton and was hurried on the way. Former Governor Henry J. Allen of Kansas, after an inter- view with Mussolini, said: "Apparently he frankly that England means war."
