Britain today pledged “no truce

the Nail Teglme and Prime Min-
later Winaton Churchill for the
first time promised 'that Cermati
cities would feel a"^ weight of
bombs equal or exceeding any
thing suffered 'by the British
. The pledgee made by Churchill
came at a moment when Berlin
asserted her forces are '’■^“enine
through the Stalin fortifications
toward Leningrad, Moscow and
KIot—a claim qounti^ed by a
Russian declaiation that there
were no important changes in the
front fighting- lines.
Churchill spoke in confident,
aggressive tones. He revealed that
“in the past few weeks” since the
start of the Royal Air Force of
fensive upon Germany a weight
'of British bomibs equal to about
half of all those dropped by the
Luftwaffe on Britain since start
of the war has fallen on Nazi ob
» This weight, he promised, will
grow and grr w and grow as
Britain gains greater strength in
the air with the arrivai of more
and more American-buiit long-
range bombing planes.
He said Britain wanted mo fav
ors from Germany and if a truce
on the bombing of cities should
be proposed it would be rejected
with indignation by British civil
ians who are determined to see
the ravages of London, Coventry.

and other objects of Luftwaffe

Moscow.- Rus-ian counter-at
tacks on the vital central sector
protecting Moscow have recaptur
ed from the Germans th" towns
of Rogpehev and Zhlobin. while
Nazi offensives on the Baltic and
Vkrainian sectors have 1) e e n
stemmed w'ith heavy losses to
German panzer and motorized
units, an official comm unique
.said early tdoay.
The communique admitted Rus-
su n losses in three weeks of
fighting of 250.000 men. 2.200
tanks and 1,900 planes and as
serted that German losses were
at least 1.000.000 men, 2.300
planes and 3.000 tanks.
Tbf? claim of Ru*^sian pains on
the pivotal cenln-1 front, the
‘‘Road to Moscow,” came a few
hours after Russia and Britain
signed in .Moscow a new pact
pledging each other ‘’support of
all kinds” against Germany and
promising thcl neither side would
make a separate peace. A Soviet
apokesjuan said the new Londou-
Moscow pact made the 1 nited
States--pledged to give Britain
all-out aid—virtually a partnei
of Russia “for the inevitable an-
nihilation of German fascism.
The Sunday nighl communique,
describing Saturday’s fighting,
said that in the northwestern or
Baltic sector heavy fighting rag
ed all day Sunday when large
Nazi meeha.,nized and motorized
units launched a large-scale of
“Stubborn resistance b> oui
troops held it up and the enemy
suffered heavy losses,” the com
munique said.
Rogachev is 35 miles due east
of Bcbniisk. some 145 miles
southwest of Smolensk, and
Zhlobin is about 12 mites due
south of Rogachev.
