• FEELING GROWS IN WASHINGTON that Russia soon will
grant air bases in eastern Siberia to Unittd States for the all-out
, aerial assault on the Japanese homeland.
I The Soviet government repeatedly has pointed out that It techni-
i cally is at peace with Japan whenever the subject of bases la
: broached. r
! But Allied officials never have taken too serious this Soviet claim
^despite Moscow's hard-headed, realistic and oft-times tight-lipped
i diplomacy. •
Experts recall Premier Josef Stalin's Indicated desire to fight one
war at a time. Hence, they think when tho time is propitious for
- Russia to review terms of her neutrality with Japan she wilt do so.
That time, Washington feels, is when Germany no longer is a
danger on the Western front. 0 x ' ('/
