March 4—(U.P.) j —The official Ankara radio today warned the Turkish people that they suddenly have been brought “closer to war,” after the reported arrival of German mechanized troops at the Bulgarian-Turk-ish frontier less than 100 miles from the Dardanelles. The German forces, spearheaded by tanks and motorcycle units, i were said by travellers from Nazi-occupied Bulgaria to have reached the Svilengrad area where they face strong positions of between 300.000 to 500.000 Turkish troops entrenched along the frontier. Semi-official quarters said that Turkey's two-weeks-old accord of non-aggression with Bulgaria has been "nullified'’ because Bulgaria is now 'only a German province,” and it was intimated that the accord soon would be repudiated to give Turkey complete freedom of action.

March 3—<U.El—Soviet j Russia today informed Bulgaria in j a formal note that Germany’s military occupation of the Balkan nation threatens "extension of the I war’’ and that Russia refuses to give support of any kind to Bui- I garia's new Axis-dominated policy. | Russia's strong statement, break- j ing an enigmatic silence on the | part of the Kremlin toward the Balkan crisis, was handed to Bulgarian Minister Ivan Stamenoff by j Soviet Vice-Commissar of Foreign Affairs A. V. Vvshinskv. The note carried strong criticism I of Bulgaria for agreeing to the brought Turkey'closer ”to‘° war but German armed occupation in what the presence of the Germans ln the Soviet government called a mis-| Bulgaria received calmly here and we are awake to all events,” the radio said. It was generally admitted in Ankara tonight that "war may be just around the comer” but military quarters said that precautions had been taken against any and all surprises. Military leaders remained calm in face of the arrival of the German troops.

The statement was broadcast tonight from all of Moscow’s radio stations, which quoted the official text of Vyshinsky’s note. The last official Russian statement on the Bulgarian situation appeared on January 15 in the form of an assertion that neither Germany nor Bulgaria had consulted Moscow on the possible entry of German troops into Bulgaria. That statement was issued by the Tass agency in reply to reports abroad that German troops would have the sanction of the Russian government in an occupation of Bulgaria, and today’s announcement indicated that the situation had not changed, in the Russian view, now that the Nazi occupation has been carried out. dent's e Notice llan Hancock en-11 offer a recital at morrow in the Han-ditorium and will another program on at 9 a.m. which attended by music tion 91 B1 students exercise, y members, stu-~d their friends are invited to attend itals.

British Say Bulgarian War Imminent SOFIA, March 4—(U.E)—A complete break in diplomatic relations bringing Britain and Bulgaria to the point of war is “only a matter of hours,” a British spokesman said early today as German troops occupying Bulgaria rapidly neared the 300.000 mark. Throughout Monday the advance mechanized forces of an estimated 200,000 Nazi troops rushed into position on the Bulgarian-Greek frontier barely 60 miles from Salonika and, at one point, threateningly close to Turkey’s heavily fortified Thracian border, according to advices in Sofia. Greek defiance of a “last chance” demand which Adolf Hitler was reported serving in an effort to drive Greece into a dictated peace with Italy was reported to be bringing German green-grey troops up to Greece’s Macedonian frontier by the thousands. Aid-Bill Debate Limit Blocked by Opposition Non-Interventionists Promise No Filibuster; Glass Asks Cloture WASHINGTON, March 3—<U.E>— Non-interventionists today blocked the first attempt by the administration to limit senate debate on President Roosevelt's British aid bill but reiterated that they are not filibustering the historic legislation. The move was made by Chairman Walter F. George, D., Ga., of the foreign relations committee, after Sen. Carter Glass, D., Va., had advocated invocation of the senate's most drastic weapon — cloture—to shorten the discussion and after oppositionists had been denounced from the floor as aiding the Axis caused by delaying a final vote. George’s motion would have lim- | ited each senator to one hour of talk on the bill and 30 minutes on each amendment. Only one vote was needed to defeat it, and it came from Missouri’s stocky Bennett C. Clark who said “the destiny of the American republic is at stake and there should not be a limitation of debate." NO FILIBUSTER He protested that there “is no evidence whatever gf a filibuster,” and was joined in this statement by Sen. Burton K. Wheeler, D., Mont., generalissimo of opposition forces. The Montanan said that thousands of letters are pouring into the offices of senators urging them to filibuster, and he regarded these pleas as “fully justified.” “No matter how you sugar-coat or disguise this bill it is still a threat to democracy,” he said. “I intend to fight it ta any way, shape or form that I can. When the American people realize what this bill means, there will be an uprising such as has never been seen before.” CLOTURE SUGGESTED There has been no indication that the administration would seek to impose cloture. Passage of such a “gag” requires a two-thirds vote, a maximum of 60 votes for the aid bill and that it could not count on all of them to support cloture. Glass told reporters that he favored such a restriction because “the talking has gone on too long.” “Let them try it,” Clark challenged. “They haven’t got the votes—and they know it.” The polls that revealed the administration's strength on the bill itself also indicate that it has sufficient votes to defeat an amend-men by Sen. Allen J. Ellender, D., La., which would prevent dispatch of United States troops outside the Western Hemisphere. Ellender, who is a supporter of the bill, believes his proposal will be adopted and so do the oppositionist leaders. All concede the vote will be close. Senator Carter Glass — favors shortened debate. Janssen Talks to Musicians Conductor Discusses Orchestra Tomorrow Werner Janssen, noted director of his own symphony orchestra, will be the special speaker at 3:15 p.m. tomorrow in Bovard auditorium at a recital meeting of the alumni chapter of Mu Phi Epsilon, honorary music sorority. Janssen, who is well known ta music circles, will talk concerning the organization and development of his orchestra.

Jonas, instructor ta Quakers DisCUSS rr Re|i9io°s °biee,ors recently-published book, ‘ Rocky Mountain Politics.” Dr. Jonas wrote the first chapter of the publication, which is a study of the Rocky mountain states’ individual political background, and the economic and historical factors that influence them.

March 4 — OLE) — Streams of German raiders, following the regular “fire-blitz” pattern that reduced Coventry to smoking ruins, last night rained “thousands” of incendiaries on a south Wales coastal town, then blasted it with high explosive while raging fires ate through buildings. The raid on the south Wales town, where it was believed damage and casualties were considerable, came as Britain and Germany traded powerful aerial blows in a burst of widespread bombing raids so unusual during the winter months that they aroused speculation whether the heralded spring offensive might be taking shape. Striking in a steady stream, the Nazi night raiders concentrated on the south Wales town. Observers reported the Germans loosed the “greatest quantity of incendiaries the town ever saw.” First check of the damage revealed that a hospital, several churches, stores in the shopping center, and a charitable institute were hit by bombs while many homes were completely wrecked. ASSC Drive on Violators Opens Today Open warfare on “park sharks” who clutter up campus parking lots will begin today as student service and judicial groups unite in the first concerted anti-muddle drive in recent years. Daily morning and afternoon checks of parking lots will be made by Trojan Knights and Squires who will issue citations to automobiles which “block access to or exit from lots or which unnecessarily hinder the orderly movement of cars on the lots.” OWNERS TRACED Names and addresses of registered owners of the cars will be taken by the inspectors and checked with university files to determine identification of the student drivers. License numbers also will be listed and traced with the cooperation of the Automobile Club of southern Califomia. Student violators of parking restrictions will be summoned before the men’s council and women’s judicial court, disciplinary groups, beginning next week. The extent of punishment will be determined by the organization, with possible suspension from the university as a final course for consistent violators. VIOLATORS PUBLICIZED Names of violators also will be published each day ta the Daily Trojan. Faculty members who receive citations will be referred to the university administration for action. Citation slips notifying drivers of their offenses will be placed ta cars. Inspection will be concentrated on lots adjacent to Aeneas hall, Science building. Bridge hall and Dentistry, and the Foyer of Town and Gown. The drive is an outgrowth of sporadic attempts to improve parking conditions ta the university area by minimizing congestion on the lots. Since former efforts by university administrative departments did not achieve desired success, the entire problem last week was turned over to the Associated Students, under the guidance of Leo Adams, assistant general manager of the ASSC. STUDENTS INFORMED A widespread effort to inform the campus of the drive was begun last night when members of the flying squadron, under the leadership of Paul Barthel, chairman, visited campus fraternities, sororities, and dormitories. At the direction of a special committee of the student senate. 50 wooden signs stating, “You Gain by an Open Lane,” were posted at the entrances of the lots yesterday by the" operation and maintenance department.
