which have4arhed Basel. These news
napera said tnV ultimatum was iaaued
I by General voa Mackensen on Wednes

to make overtures to the peace confer

News of this ultimatum to Rumania
was confirmed, according to despstches
from London which added that the Brit

It is admitted thnt if the reported

will be in a sorry plight. The food

And for what little food was obtained
from outside sources Rumania was
absolutely dependent upon the I'kraine.
