American reports have been received in London that a Large portion of the French Fleet has been sur rounded by British warships outside Alexandria and has surrendered. From the same source it is also reported that two unfinished French battleships have been blown up in French naval Yards. The names of these vessels Are Given As the Richelieu and Clemenceau. No admiralty report has been issued and there is no official confirmation in London of either report. The american reports which Are stated to come from a reliable source Are conflicting As to the actual num Ber of French warships surrendered to Britain.

But it is realised that Hitler cunning and Clever May not otherwise at the moment be typically harsh in the Long Hope that he will attract temporary sympathy while. With his usual treachery leaving the Way Clear to later Deal properly with France. Nobody doubts that Germany is seeking the French Fleet and air Force As one of the penalties of defeat. It is stressed in Berlin that the French merely have to choose Between whether they will hand Over All their War material or have it taken from them. By Force. It is obvious that any armistice depends essentially of guarantees that the War against Britain can be continued from French soil and. Hitler does t want his ? future worries even worse complicated by the strengthening of English sea and. Air Power which would gain enormously from French additions.
