' Russian authorities have
howed their gratitude to the
American seamen by granting
each crew member a soviet port
bonus of an additional month's
pay, Frankel disclosed.
The bonus, by dollar draft
presented to the captain of each

States, amounts to about $3000
per vessel. This is in addition
to other bonuses granted in the
United States.

perts estimate the number en
gaged In the service of supply in
the middle east at about 250,000.
Churchill's somber portrayal
of the war in Africa was re
lieved only by his statement that
"very considerable" reinforce
ments have reached or "are ap
proaching" the battlefield. .
This major strengthening of
the battered British eighth army,
athwart the' axis path to the
Mile delta, Alexandria and Suez,
was the basis of . Churchill s
statement that "1 do not .con
sider the struggle in any way
as decided." . '
He said his conversations with
President Roosevelt were con
cerned "only with movement of
troops, ships and aircraft and
measures to be taken to combat
tesses at sea and more than re
place sunken tonnage."
The United States army air
force has been in action for some
days in the north African strug
gle while United States service
and supply units have been en
gaged on behalf of the allies on
other battle lines.
"Almost everything arranged
was secret," Churchill added of
hlti talks with the president, and
there was never a more earnest
desire between allies to engage
the enemy."
The war, in Churchill's opin
ion, is likely to be a long one
and moreover, he said, there Is
no reason to suppose that hos
tilities will cease "when the
final result has oecome obvious,
Churchill said the balance of
naval power in the Pacific has
been "altered in our favor" by
the "brilliant victories of the
United States navy and airforce"
over the Japanese in the Coral
sea and at Midway.
He said that the fall of To
bruk, the last bulwark in Ital
ian Libya, which opened the
way for eastward invasion of
Egypt, had been "utterly unex
pected" by the cabinet, the
chiefs of staff and General Sir
Claude Auchinleck, commander-in-chief
of middle eastern forces,
50.000 Lost
He said that Britain and her
allies, including the dominions
the Free French and the Poles,
had lost "upwards of 50,000
men" in the last two weeks as
the battle of Libya turned into
the battle of Egypt.
He added to this figure
great mass of material" and
"large quantities of stores."
On the night before the Lib
yan bastion, Tobruk, fell to the
axis Field Marshal Erwln Rom
mel, Churchill said, Auchinleck
advised the cabinet that the port
and fortress city was adequately
garrisoned, with Its defenses in
"good order" and with "80 days
supplies available for the troops."
"We had superiority in num
bers of tanks of perhaps seven
to five and superiority In artil
lery of nearly eight to five," he
By way of explanation of the
debacle, Churchill said that
heavy attacks on Malta, Britain's
mid-Mediterranean island base
as British Fight 'Another Rear Guard Action' Near Matruh
aflank the axis supply line to
Libya, made it impossible to
impede the axis reinforcements
and the enemy "got lots of stuff
across to Africa."

Ownership of the vessel was

He survived the attempts and
with the cooperation of army,

authorities, he managed to
round up all he believed to be
involved, including one man
who was arrested at sea by the
