The promised second front involving Allied land operations on the greatest scale synchronized with developments on the Eastern front and in the Mediterranean. Decisions on the diplomatic front might include 1. A bid to Axis satellites to abandon Berlin. 2. A plan for the occupation and policing of Germany. 3. A Broad outline on How the peace May be kept secure in Europe. Tadeusz Romer polish foreign minister told the associated press his government was urgently hoping such a conference would also produce an understanding capable of forming the basis Fok Fatmire cordial collaboration by the soviet Union and Poland. Long journeys Premier Stalin s journey outside his own country was but a Short step compared to the distances travelled by the British and american chiefs of state.

And from the Caspian sea which forms Iran s Border with the soviet Union Teheran is Only 70 Miles South. For Many months Teheran and Iran have been the site of much Allied activity. Russians britons and americans have worked together there to see that military supplies got through to Russia. Moscow announcement that the conference actually had been held the decisions doubtless will be published earlier than originally intended. Considerations for the safety of Premier marshal .1 o s e f Stalin president Roosevelt and prime minister Churchill the main reason for delaying an announcement were obviated by the Moscow radio statement.

Secretary of state Cor Dell Hull British foreign Secretary Anthony Eden and soviet foreign commissar Vyacheslav Molotov in Moscow caught both official London and Washington Flat footed. Neither capital had any official news for immediate release. Full details later Tho soviet Monitor said that full details of the conference might be announced Between noon and 1 p. M. Central War time today Basing his prediction on the customary routine of the Moscow radio when announcing future broadcasts. Since he did not take into account any special arrangements which might have been made to release such an important announcement his prediction however was a purely personal observation i j in the absence of an official communique it was believed that these Steps probably will Stem from the conference 1.

Action to shorten War is foreseen this believed to be the prime result of big three conference by John m. Hightower Washington up military action to shorten the War by weeks or months and probably a dramatic ultimatum to the German people to throw off fascism and surrender or else face destruction Are the explosive results expected from the conference of president Roosevelt prime minister Churchill and marshal Stalin. This was Washington s reaction to the Moscow radio announcement that the big three had completed their extraordinary sessions at Teheran and that a statement would be issued later outlining the military and political decisions reached. Probably no pronouncement of this War has been awaited with such intense and worldwide interest. For to the extent that it foreshadows action on the fighting fronts and in the Battle of nerves it May furnish Clear clues to the time and nature of the mighty blows now in preparation against the fortress of Europe. A hint that even greater offensives on the russian front itself May toe in store came from chairman Connally a Tex of the Senate foreign relations committee who said in a radio address thursday night that As a result of the big three meeting the armies of Russia will be strengthened and her Campaign will be buttressed and invasion key topic beyond a doubt however one of the major topics of discussion was the projected Anglo american invasion of Western Europe which the russians have been urging almost from the Day that the United states was precipitated into War two years ago next tuesday. Those most familiar with the russian argument As already presented to Allied statesmen and military leaders believe that Stalin and his military advisers stressed the necessity of invasion As the Only Means of forcing Victory at a reasonably Early Date. On the other hand the Anglo american position has been and at Teheran that any attempt to open a second front would be suicidal without fully adequate preparation. The Aerial onslaught against Berlin already has aroused speculation that direct preparation for invasion May be underway. Germans must know expectation that the Roosevelt Churchill Stalin statement will be at least in effect directed to the German people grows out of the by Nolam Sorgaard Allied Headquarters Algiers put.
