A both colonel Knox and colonel Stimson having Long desired to intervene in the affairs of Europe. I the democratic party now by their very appointment has become the War party of this country. And we May accept that i sue at its face former president Herbert c. Hoover a dark horse possibility for the presidential nomination said Knox and Stimson a Are not representing the Republican still in dispute president Roosevelt s formation of a Cabinet with Henry l Stimson and colonel Frank Knox in the key defense posts was still in dispute today out administration leaders counted More than enough Senate votes needed to confirm the two republicans Loc their new jobs while groups in and out of Congress joined in Praise or denunciation of the move or Roosevelt reiterated that his sole desire was to achieve a National he told a press conference at Hyde Park.

N. Y june 21. president Roosevelt charged today that opponents of his a National Solidarity Cabinet Are acting from partisan rather than patriotic motives. Or. Roosevelt defended his nomination of col. Frank Knox and Henry l. Stimson a it secretaries of Navy and War As a step to solidify the United states in the face of a grave inter a a a. National crisis. He refused at a press conference to comment on Alfred m. Landon a assertion that nomination of the two republicans to his Cabinet is indicative that he has Given them assurances he will not seek a third term. The president said that after retiring on his special train last night. He turned the entire Cabinet matter Over in his mind. And feels that his conclusions on the subject approximate those of a great Many other people. These conclusions he said have bearing on the difference Between different types of Peoples one Type he said. Think in terms of patriotic motives the other in terms of partisanship. He said the situation is complicated by the fact Miat the United Staten is involved in a very difficult situation although some of his opponents would contest that conclusion or. Roosevelt said the same conclusion applies to those opponents who charged that by forming a bipartisan Cabinet with Knox and Stimson in key positions he was forming a War Cabinet and making the democratic party a War party the president said that he has heard so Many and various comments in his Cabinet shake up since it was ordered yesterday that he could not possibly comment directly on any one assertion. La he commented on one he would be led into endless comment on All he said. The shift in Heads of the War and Navy departments probably completes his plans for Cabinet revisions so far As he knows right now he said.

Column 4. Today a War moves by j. Vav. T. Mason i United press War expert reports that Germany May postpone announcement of peace terms but will demand unconditional surrender of France at the armistice conference imply a High degree of psychological efficiency to Hitler. If the germans declare at this time the infliction they intend to impost on France it would stimulate the activities of those frenchmen who wish to form a Rump government and continue the War in opposition to the retain ministry.

The germans had captured 400 air planes which had just arrived from America and 2,000 motors Complete with plans for mounting. Here s summer summer came into Anni it ton today with the most Friendly temperatures of several Days prevailing. The mornings Low was 64. Which the weather Bureau called practically Chilly compared to ome of the minimums such Asti 69 and 68�?markej up in recent Days. An Outlook for a continuance of Quot liable weather conditions was voiced. Yesterday s High was 49, pretty High but still not 90. A realistic War policy therefore would seem to Point to enforcement of French surrender without at the same time driving the French to such despair that they might prefer to fight on. Even in their weakened state. Without stating final peace terms the germans can use any part of France As bases for their own future operations once French surrender Lias been arranged. If conditions in Germany were becoming so disquieting As to require action to heighten civilian morale then immediate dismember a meat of France could serve a use Lul purpose for Hitler. But there is no evidence that the German Home Trout is in any present danger of collapse. It does not yet need to be stimulated for the German victories have been sufficient for that purpose. A ruthless partitioning of Frame and division of her colonies might Well be postponed too until the War is Over so that Neutral resentment against Germany Max be kept within Bounds. Germany certainly is uneasy regarding the trend of Public opinion in the United states and it would show psychological realism for Hitler to postpone the immolation of France on till account alone too. The japanese Are uneasy concerning the future of French Indochina. As Long As the War goes on the japanese Are in a better position to Check German Leisure of this territory than they would be if the germans concluded the War with Complete Victory for themselves. Although the germans talk of forcing unconditional surrender on the British Empire it is far More reasonable to believe they expect an i eventual Compromise peace with the i British. But if France were torn asunder now the germans might Well conclude that great Britain would fight More bitterly and the War might be prolonged to the Point of exhaustion for the germans with j no Hope of Compromise. Also the germans understand very Well that whatever terms might be inflicted on France now can have Only temporary Validity. Their permanent wig depend on the outcome of the struggle against Britain. I if that struggle were to result in the necessity for a Compromise ending of the War the British would insist on France being a party to the peace negotiations. Any previous peace conditions might have too discarded requiring open retraction by Germany and so indicating in this respect a German defeat if Wisdom prevails in the Hitler Camp therefore it would seem advantageous for Germany to refrain from an immediate impetuous grab of Frances possessions though perhaps militarily occupying some of them. Tire French army made impotent by unconditional surrender would then have to sit imm. Banned watching the Fate of plane being decided by the Tot tween Germany and the British i Empire though perhaps with the French Navy and St me of Tho Fri he air Force participating ;
