NAME_____ A ODE ESS___ ■ CITY___ STATE-------—PHOM MO __ Lord Keyes Says End Of War Is Near, Calls for Splitting of Reich I Bj the Associated Pres*. LONDON, Dec. 9.—Lord Keyes, admiral of the fleet, said last night the end of the war was near, with out a shadow of doubt, and he called for a postwar separation of the German states by a great army of occupation. Addressing a Luxembourg Society meeting, Lord Keyes said he hoped that this time the guilty would be punished.

Lord Keyes, the hero of the block ing of Zeebrugge in 1918, disclosed the part he played In a similar ex-. ploit in 1940, and told of the failure of a plan to destroy installations at Ostend. On May 5. 1940, when he was the naval attache at Brussels with' the object of maintaining special liaison with King Leopold, three ships, heavily laden with concrete, were all set to block Zeebrugge once more. When the block ships came in, however, they were met by heavy gunfire because the French Army apparently believed they were Ger man. They were sunk Just out side the mole, he related. Ordera Left to Destroy l ocks. “The next night," he went on, “three more block ships, intended for Ostend, were put In the canal between Zeebrugge and Bruges— and we know It is severely blocked now.” But then, he said, there were no vessels left with which to block Ostend. He said orders were left for the lock gates and harbor installations to be destroyed. later in Eng land. however, a French officer told him nothing had been done. “So when you hear of bombard ments at Ostend by the RAF,” said Lord Keyes, “you know they are trving to do what we meant to do in 1940.” Reds Name Iceland Envoy LONDON, Dec. 9 (JP).—A.
