Alexandria's Fall Won't Rout British Fleet, Admiral Says The British fleet in the Mediter ranean is in "no particular danger of being cut off" as a result of the Avis land force's advance through Egypt, Admiral Sir Andrew Browne-Cun ningham. who left command of the Mediterranean unit to join the joint chiefs of staff in Washington, said on his arrival here today. Admiral Cunningham admitted there is some risk involved to the fleet in remaining in the Mediter ranean. but pointed out the land battle for control of the Suez Canal was far from decided. Even if Alexandria. Egypt, fell into Axis hands, the fleet could use other bpses in the eastern end of the Mediterranean, he said. Alex andria. however, is the principal fleet base in that area. He admitted the capture of Alex andria by the Axis would be “very, very awkward" but said it "wouldn’t drive all of the fleet out” of the Mediterranean. Reviewing the naval action In connection with the battle of North Africa, he explained that Axis at tacks on Malta during the early months of this year had made it impossible for the British to cut the supply lines between Italy and Rommel's forces. "Last November our submarines, the RAF, and the fleet air arm operating from Malta were devas tating Axis supply lines to Libya. At one time 50 per cent of the Axis supply ships were sunk.” But when the Nazis began to bombard Malta heavily, the Axis began again to get through their supplies.

June 30.— Ruth Mitchell, sister of the late Brig. ! Gen. Billy Mitchell, an early advo | cate of the use of air power, de clared upon her return from Nazi dominated Europe today that the way to beat Germany was by bomb ing from airplanes. The slim, blond-haired woman, who joined the Yugoslav Chetnlk guerrilla army in April, 1941. and later spent almost a year In 12 dif ferent concentration camps follow ing her arrest by the German ges tapo, was the first of 949 passengers to disembark from the diplomatic exchange liner Drottningholm. "Bombing by planes is the way to beat Germany,” she told inter viewers. "They can't take it.” She said the Chetniks still were fighting “magnificently" In the mountains of Yugoslavia and ‘‘an Army Commissions Allen and Warner Commissions as majors in the Army have been granted to Robert.

Also aboard were 42 Canadian and Latin-American nationals and a group of minor United States diplomatic officials. Miss Mitchell, the wife of Stanley Knowles, a British subject, told of spending miserable months in Ger man prison camps during which she said she and others were ill-treated. By contrast she said the Germans fell over backward to be nice to her during her last five days in Germany at the Spandau concen tration camp near Berlin, She said she was arrested by the Gestapo as she was bathing on a beach at the Adriatic resort port of Dubrovnik in September, 1941.

At that point the bottleneck of hard desert floor between the Medi terranean and the Qattara Depres sion narrows to about 45 miles. The announcement tonight did not indicate whether the Axis ad vance was in force, or whether only isolated units had broken through. Alexandria in Grave Peril. It was apparent, however, that the swift progress of even the ad vance enemy units posed a grave peril to the great naval base of Alexandria and the rich valley of the Nile. The battle of swift maneuver in the torrid desert sands still was highly fluid and the actions of the milling masses of men, machines and artillery was confused and bitter. Linked with the German drive to ward the Suez Canal and the Near East, the furious Nazi onslaught against Sevastopol in the Crimea today appeared to be nearing a climax. Latest Soviet dispatches said the Germans are throwing 15 divisions— about 225,000 troops—into the siege of the key Black Sea naval fortress. Nazis Score New Gains.
