Red Army Slashes Over Trans-Siberian Railway

The capture of Manchouli and Dalainor by the Russian forces means that they have already slashed across the southern branch of the toans-Siberian railway on a 15-mile front, says the Daily Telegraph.

One minute after they had entered the war against Japan the Russians started a powerful new radio transmitter in the Far East for broadcasting to Japan, the correspondent adds. The announcer said: "Listen, Japan. There will be no other chance offered you. It is either surrender or obliteration."

The Times Moscow correspondent says the Russians received calmly the news that their country is again at war. Moscow workers accepted the news quietly because they believe in the speedy defeat of Japan, but though Moscow's calm derives froma sense of strength and general satisfaction at the justness of the Government's action there are few illusions that the Red Army is facing an easy task. The Kwantung armies in Manchuria are held in respect.

The Times, in a leader, says the eventual significance of Russia's declaration is that it broadens and generalises the basis o$ security in the Pacific, in which every nation, from Russia in the north to Australia and New Zealand in the south, is now equally concerned on the same footing. Russia's new role implies not only preoccupation with her own security in the narrower sense but willingness to assume a share of responsibility for the general settlement of Pacific problems.
