Acceded to as Soviet Planes Swarm Overhea BUCHAREST Ru manian grand council with Kin Carol presiding has decided to ac cede to a soviet Bussian ultimatum calling for the cession of Bess urabia and the northern jlart o the province ot Bucovina diplo mafic quarters reported Thursda The Berlin radio reported tha Russia also had demanded con trol rights over Constanta Ru manias principal Black sea porl and Tulcea Danube river port The ultimatum which Ihe in formants said was to expire at 10 p m 2 p m C S T was said also to have demanded hat Rumania give Russia railroad bases at Constanta and certain Danube ports Foreign military attaches re ceived reports from the provinces that huge squadrons of Russian warplanes were flying over Bess arabia arid northern Bucovina The ultimatum it was said wa handed to Rumanian Minister Davidescu at Moscow by Premiei Foreign Commissar Molotoff Wed nesday night The first session of the gran council which met at noon ter at pm Then the Huarters draft a formal reply to the soviel ultimatum No declaration wa forthcoming The chief of the Rumanian gen eral staff visited King Carols pal ace for a conference just before the grand council meeting The German and Italian min isters also had talks with Carol and it was reported reli ably they had urged the mon arch on behalf of their eovern ments to accede to the soviet wishes Foreign military observers were informed that heavy concentrations of red army troops tanks and ar tillery were massing along the Dniester river and the former PolishRumanian frontier Bessarabia which was Rus sian before the World war set tlement and Bucovina a former province of AustriaHungary both have large Ukranian popula tions and the Berlin radio re ported Russias demands were for all Rumanian territories chiefly inhabited by Ukrainians T h e Ukrainian homeland with a populalion of about 32000 000 is one of the component re publics ot the Russian soviet union If Russia gets Bessarabia and Bucovina she will haveunited virtually all Ukrainian territory except the CarpathoUkraine 3 small portion of the now dismem bered CzechoSlov a k republic Rumania has nearly I5008M men under arms many of whom have been concentrated in Bes sarabia and Bucovina Foreign diplomatic and mili tary observers Ions have ex pressed belief however hat Kin Carol would be unwilling to at tempt to oppose Russian demands by force They held this view particularly since Germany and Italy author itatively were reported to have consented to Molotoffs demands as the price of Russias pressure to keep Turkey out of the side of the allies and soviet economic aid to the axis powers Report Nazis Massing Ships Facing British LONDON UR Germany ws eporied concen Uating a vast fleet of small ships m nazioccupied ports facing Great Britainarousing intense speculation as to whether the hour was near for Aclolf Hitlers ex Blitzkrieg invasion of tile ritish Isles Reports reaching United SUtrs sources in London said it was indicated that the predicted Ger man attempt to invade Britain was near while British parlia mentary quarters reported that Hitler might make a speech Fri anniversary 0C the signing of the treaty ot Ver the way for general peace negotiations Any such proposal if Hitle speaks would presumably be fo peace on nazi terms and in an event would be met with an un quahiied rejection by the Brjtisl government these sources insisted Thereafter it was believed th axis powers might launch their in vasion attempt As a result considerable im poitance was attached to report that many small ships were con centrating m Germanoccupiei ports in the North sea and else where for a possible invasion o Britain regardless of whether th Oerman fuehrer speaks One report said that hun dreds of small fishing craft re cently had been sent by the Germans to the Norwegian port bUt 35 attempt is ordered Experts pointed out however hat anyattempt to predict wher the expected offensive might oc cur was futile because the Ger nrm strategy probably would be o attempt to weaken British re sistance by a long period of aerial lombardment during which crack roops would be trained in landing maneuvers It was pointed out that one of he German methods in the war n France was repeatedly to hreaten invasion Belgium and lolland and to mass troops on the ow country borders on various occasions so that when the order was given to
