Jyh waiting on Berlin Italy accepts pact regarding Spain blockade not justified London saturday. Italy has accepted the French proposal for a pact of non intervention in Spain but this hopeful development in the tense International situation has been offset by the uncertainty of Germany s attitude. Spanish loyalists claim to have captured Cordoba an important town about 80 Miles from Seville in the South. The Madrid government expects decisive developments in its favor within three weeks though guerilla warfare May i Aniio for months. Britain has informed the Spanish government that she cannot recognise the blockade of ports held by the rebels according to the morn ing Post this decision Means that any attempt to hold up and search British vessels outside Spanish territorial Waters will be forcibly resisted. The diplomatic correspondent of the Manchester guardian says that the italian move Means temporary Isola Tion for Germany and May compel her to accept non intervention with reservations. If it does then the Anglo French policy in the Spanish civil War will have been vindicated and a general european crisis averted. The correspondent adds that although there has been some German italian co operation in Aid of the Spanish rebels Italy throughout has been suspicious of Germany s motives and uneasy lest Germany should gain a foothold in the Western Mediterranean or in North Africa. The Paris correspondent of the Manchester guardian says that Italy s sudden decision to accept the French proposals is almost certainly Musso Lini s own decision. Moreover it Fol lows so promptly the German protest to Spain about the Kamerun incident that it is difficult not to connect one with the other. Possibly the ostentatious interest which Germany has manifested in the Mediterranean has wounded italian susceptibilities. Uneasy feeling the Paris correspondent of the times says that if the italian move Means that Lily is prepared to accept a ban on arms and aircraft in return for a French pledge not to permit organised recruiting and subscriptions for other thar humanitarian Aims in Spain then All is Well ? ? but there is As uneasy feeling that the Ball is now at the feet of Ger Many whose reaction to the Kamerun affair is causing anxiety. Italy s reply to the French note re Garding non intervention was handed by the italian foreign minister count Ciano to the French ambassador in Rome m. Chambrun. Italy undertakes to prevent direct or indirect exportation or re exportation to Spain of arms munitions War mate rial aeroplanes and warships applying the embargo to current contracts. Effect to this declaration will be Given says the note when the French British Portu Raese Ger Man and russian governments have adhered to the pact. Regarding the French reference Toi indirect intervention the note adds that France does not specify the precise meaning of the phrase. J so Italy interprets the suggestion As rendering it inadmissible for adherents to the pact to permit Public subscriptions or enlistment of volunteers for either Side. As other important european states produce arms besides those to which the French project refers Italy also re Gards it As essential that such Powers also should accept the non intervention agreement. French circles in Rome says the times correspondent interpret the i note As a great Effort at conciliation on j Italy s part i nazi press outburst j the Kamerun incident has held up negotiations in Berlin for Germany s j participation in the proposed Nonin Terven Tion pact. The German Steamer Kamerun was prevented from entering Cadiz Harbor by Spanish government warships. The germans say that the Kamerun was going to remove German refugees. The Spanish government claims that she carried a cargo of petrol for the rebels in Cadiz. Meanwhile tie German government says the times correspondent in Berlin has made two additional pro tests the first in Moscow where the German ambassador has been instructed to request the cessation of unbridled agitation against germans in Spain broadcast from Russia and. Repeated in Madrid. A similar protest has been made in Madrid. These Drut fists Aasc accompanied by � blaring anti soviet newspaper Campaign the russian ?. Increase in naval and military \ armaments. \ meanwhile collaboration of germans and italians with the rebels is going on All the time declares the diploma tic correspondent of the Manchester guardian rebel ships Are Coaling from German vessels. J according to the correspondent of the news chronicle at Tangier the International zone on the moroccan coast indiscretions of the president of the International commission Sig nor Rossi Are causing alarm. Rossi j has undertaken consular duties for the rebel Leader Gen. Franco at which step the French have vigorously pro tested. He has also replaced the Spanish president of the port of Tan Gier police by an italian. There seems no doubt that Italy is extending her influence in Morocco. People Are wondering if she once gets a foothold who will get her oat. Italian warships have landed Large quantities of munitions for Rossi s legation. Moreover a sailing vessel on the night of August 8 landed machine guns and four tons of ammunition at Al Cemas Bay which was immediately conveyed to Ceuta the rebel Headquarters on the moroccan coast opposite Gibraltar. Nobody can say How Long the civil War will last declared the Spanish Premier Senor Jose Giral in an interview with the daily Telegraph s correspondent in Madrid. However. I believe that 15 or 20 Days will bring decisive developments though guerilla warfare May continue for weeks even for months. Anxiety in Madrid Page 3.
