The nations of Europe and particularly Italy have taken a grave View of Russia s declaration that As the fascist states were supplying arms to the Spanish rebels she could no longer be bound by the non intervention agreement. Extremely critical developments Are feared. The Rome correspondent of the daily Telegraph says that the situation created by the possibility of the soviet adopting a free hand in Spain is As serious for the peace of Europe As if she had withdrawn altogether from the non intervention committee. Immediately upon Russia s declaration Mussolini had a telephonic conversation with the italian minister of foreign affairs count Cian who is to meet Hitler at Berchtesgaden today. The outcome of the meeting it is believed will be the announcement of a common Italo Gennan front towards the russian decision which is regarded As a Chal Lenge to fascism. A Lloyd George the noted statesman declared last night that Britain was mating the same mis take with Spain As she did with Abyssinia her appearance of impartiality in Banning the Export of arms actually working in favor of the aggressor. He expects that the democracies of Europe will be Strong enough to control the situation and Avert War. Geneva regards the situation As the gravest postwar crisis. It is expected that Russia will demand the summoning of the league Council in the Hope of getting action taken under the league covenant to Check mate Germany and Italy. The daily Telegraph correspondent at Istanbul says that the 15,000-ton soviet Steamer trans Alt traversed the Dardanelles on thursday from the Black bound for Cartagena allegedly loaded with munitions. It is stated that guns were visible on the decks. ? other russian cargo ships Are said to be waiting with steam up in the Black ready to Rush to Barcelona munitions and planes ordered by the Spanish government. It is feared that German and italian warships May at tempt to prevent the Landing in Spain of russian supplies. Tension was increased by the announcement last night that por Tugal had broken off relations with the Madrid government and had ordered her minister to return to Lisbon immediately. Another disquieting development was the capture by a rebel gunboat in the Western Mediterranean of a Steamer flying the greek Flag and carrying a cargo of arms which had been Pur chased by the Spanish government this vessel was forced to put in at Ceuta Morocco where the rebels seized the munitions valued at �1,240,000, and sent them to Spain for their own use. Russia puts her Case in a tense atmosphere the non inter mention committee met yesterday after noon in the Locarno room at the foreign office in London. The soviet ambassador m. Mai sky and two councillors of the russian embassy attended. They renewed their charges that the fascist Powers were continuing to sup ply arms to the Spanish rebels in Viola Tion of the agreement. Russia s representatives told the com Mittee that in adhering to non inter mention the soviet expected that All participants would fulfil the agreement enabling the civil War in Spain to be shortened and the victims reduced. However time had shown that a number of participants had systematically violated the agreement and the Supply of arms to the rebels had continued unpunished. Portugal had become the main base for the rebels supplies while the legitimate government of Spain was boycotted and deprived of facilities to Pur Chase arms outside of Spain. Thus the rebels were placed in a privileged Posi Tion which the non intervention agree ment did not contemplate. Russia s efforts to prevent violation of the agreement had not received the committee s support. The proposal to control portuguese ports had not even been placed on today s Agenda. Thus the agreement was an empty torn scrap of paper. In practice it had ceased to exist not wishing unwittingly to assist an unjust cause the soviet believed that the Only Way ont of the Situa Tion was to return to the Spanish government Normal facilities to Purchase arms outside of Spain. In any Case the soviet was unable to Bear longer responsibility for an unjust situation. It could not consider itself bound to non intervention to any greater extent than other members of the committee. Britain s chief concern in spite of the soviet s announce ment at the meeting that it was no longer bound to non intervention m. Mai sky later stated that Russia had not left the committee and would participate in the sub committee meet ing today. After nearly eve hours talk the com Mittee broke up. A communique states that the chairman lord try Mouth reminded the meeting that Bri Tain s chief concern had been to pre vent the civil War spreading beyond Spanish Borders and to secure cooperation in what threatened to become a most dangerous International situation. He appealed to the committee to fulfil its difficult task by examining All information impartially. Britain had carefully studied the information sup plied and had submitted particulars of certain incidents to the govern ments concerned for their comments. Lord Plymouth proposed and the French Delegate seconded a motion that the chairman s sub committee to Morrow should review the committee s work and consider whether it could be made More effective. Portugal s representative emphatically repudiated the russian allegations. The italians adopted a disdain Ful attitude during the meeting. Interest now centres in whether Germany Italy and Portugal will claim equal Freedom with Russia to Send arms to Spain. Me. Lloyd George who says that Britain is making the same error about Spain As she did Over Abyssinia. Llyd orge e did or four men leap for lives boat afire off coast Sydney saturday.

Talking definite favorite for cup effect of Valley form from the mail special representative who is in Melbourne for the cud carnival. . Sol Turhan. Talking has assumed definite favouritism for the Mel Bourne cup. Three year Olds dominate the Market quotations. Mala s condition is at present in doubt but he is being held on the Safe Side and with Rob Rov and shake Speare ranks on the next line to talking. As a result of his rather disappoint ing display today Silver ring eased i but Sar Cherie gained More friends and so did Sylvan Dale while Silver Stan i Dard who did not race at Mooney Val j Ley maintained his position. Amalia s disappointing display also caused her to lose friends. Naturally As a result of. His Victory in today s cup dark chief has come into the limelight and although there is doubt about Gol Den Promise i do not think he will be fit enough to Start at Flemington he is on the same Mark As Young crusader the Winner of the metropolitan and Oro who has been galloping in great style at Randwick. After the racing today the leading candidates appeared to be fancied in the following order talking. Rob Roy Shakespeare Mala. Sar Cherie Silver ring Sylvan Dale Silver Standard. Amalia desert chief. Golden Promise Oro Young crusader dark chief. Sporting blood Doncaster hot shot. Conan Dale Zhunga.

Moore one of her part owners said that he was amazed at the Mare s poor perform Ance. He added that it was too bad to be True. Amalia is engaged in the Hotham Handicap at Flemington next saturday but there is a Chance she will not have another race until the Melbourne cup. H. Bastian her rider said that Ama Lia did not Gallop at any part of the race. Although he used All his persuasive Powers he could not get her to show her True form. Hegemonic s win in contrast was the performance of hegemonic in winning the first division of the fillies Section of St. Albans Handicap. The Karalon filly showed a clean pair of heels to her opponents and her performances suggested that she is better than South australians think. A comparison Between her and de Light the Winner of the second Divi Sion suggests that there is not much Between the pair although Delight seems the better stayer. Probably hegemonic s next race will be in the Mimosa stakes Over four and a half furlongs at Flemington no Mel Bourne cup Day. She will carry 8 St. In that event and judged on today s form will be a formidable opponent mrs. Walter Rugless of Glenelg paid 55 guineas for hegemonic As a yearling and secured a bargain.
