TRIAL PREPARATIONS Precaution Against Shots From Outside N.Z. Press Association—Copyright Rec. 12.30 p.m. LONDON, July 22. Several hundred police, armed with rifles and tommy-guns, are to-night guarding the Palais de Justice, in Paris, to which Phillipe Petain, a marshal of France and head of the Vichy Government, following the German invasion, was moved to-day in preparation for his trial, which is to begin to-morrow, reports the Daily. Express correspondent in Paris.

Six hundred police will be ranged throughout the trial in seven cordons in and around the building. Workmen were employed this morning preparing the room in which Petain will be lodged during the trial. They bricked up the lower half of the window to protect him from anyone trying to shoot him from the outside.

Petain arrived at the Palais de Justice, accompanied by his wife, in a convoy of four cars in which also rode police escorts. The authorities, in order to forestall demonstrations, concealed the time of Petain's transfer from the fortress in which he has been a prisoner to the Court.
