federal loan administrator had told him that if congress approves the recon struction finance corporation would use raw or manufactured agricultural products to pay al mosUwholly for reserve defense supplies purchased abroad Wagner cited a letter from Jones in reply to republican con tenbons that a pending bill might cloak the extension of credits to belligerent nations in actual if not technical contravention of tiie Johnson act The latter act bans credits to defaulting debtors The legislation would let the KFC set up a corporation author ized to purchase strategic war ma terials and pay in advance of their delivery The corporation could require jbat whenever chase American farm Senaror Townsend R Del said it appeared to him that this provision contained a loouhole by which Great Britain for in stance might be able to obtain needed cash immediately for the purchase of war equipment here by contracting to deliver rubber or tin at a later date That might be a wise tiling to am not passing judgment on that Townsend said but 1 doubt the wisdom of granting such broad power to a corporation set up by the government If it is to be done congress ought to know about it Wagner said it was his under standing however that the bar ter method was to be employed as much as possible in order to channel surplus farm products mto markets which largely have been closed bythe European war

Generalissimo Weygands tanktrap battleline was reported as holding firmly against renewed German attacks Friday morning but it had developed two danger spots progress on both flanks of the offensive sector which I draw your special at tention It should be noted that while crafty old Weygand thus far has held the enemy successes to low rear in this battle of France the German army isnt yet in full cry Hitler has a lot of power in reserve to throw into the drive The allies certainly will be wading up to their necks in sweat and blood before they get relief from the pressure of the nazi war machine Now as to those danger points One of these developed where the French left flankrested on the coast by the mouth of the Somme close to Abbeville The Germans made a furious assault on the allies extreme wmg by the sea and managed in the face of fierce resistance lo drive down the coast seventeen miles The second heavy German as sault was made in the zone ofthe Aisne river and carried the in vaders to the famous Chemin DCS Dames This is a voad running along the crest of the hills east to Soissons VT The Ciiemin Des Dames is 60 miles north of Paris and is one of the bulwarks of the capitals de fenses This ridge was the scene of some of the heaviest fighting of the World war In this attack we have an ex ample of the workinr of Wey Kands depth defenses which I described Thursday When the German avalanche roared down towards the French front the line ivas opened by the French and the nazi mechanized forces and tanks were allowed to rush through Thursday night after the Ger mans had slackened the French counterattacked The purpose of the drive on the coast is not only to capture the important port of Le Havre and so erect a further barrier between France and England but to turn the allied left flank and swine toward Paris At the same time Ihe attack at the Chemin Des Dames is calculated to cut the French line The allied line has been an chored on the coast If the Ger mans could turn that flank and at the same lime could create a new allied flank on the Aisne by cutting the line the allies be tween the sea and the Aisne ob viously would be without any anchor andwould be floating out in the open We then should have another position such as existed in the German High Command Claims Inroads Made Into Weygand Line BULLETIN PARIS UP The French high command re ported Friday that German forces attempted lo cross the Aisne cast of Soissons and those forces reaching the south hank were an nihilated By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The German juggernaut appeared at least temporarily stalled Friday night as can Honetjuipped allied planes blasted the allimportant ad vances of Germaii tanks and Paris reported the Weygand line was holding firmly in the three day old battle for the French capital Even Germans at accustomed to frequent de tailed communiques telling of successes in the nazi con quest of Holland and Bel waited in vain for news A terse German high com mand communique said oulv that the fighting was pro ceeding on schedule and that inroads had been made in the Weygand line Paris reported that the en tire area just north of the capital between the Somme Aisnc battlefront and the Seine river has been sown with antitank defense nests such as have wreaked havoc with the German onslaught so far Nazi warplanes swarmed over France in a new scries of raids during the day the German high command said attacking Cherbourg harbor and several air dromes in eastern France Meanwhile an ominous hint of Italy s imminent entrance into the European conflict
