GENERAL GIRAUD TO SUCCEED DARLAN

UNANIMOUS ELECTION BY IMPERIAL COUNCIL

PUBLIC CALM AFTER ASSASSINATION

GENERAL DE GAULLE TO VISIT WASHINGTON

General Giraud has been elected unanimously by the French Imperial Council as High Commissioner in French North Africa in succession to Admiral Darlan, who was assassinated on Thursday.

There was no public disorder after the assassination and there is every hope that French military cooperation will develop substantially.

General de Gaulle and General Catroux, Commander-in-Chief of the Fighting French in the Near East, are to visit Washington soon.

ADVANCE FROM SIRTE

EIGHTH ARMY’S PROGRESS

APPROACHING THE SALT MARSHES

RUSSIAN ADVANCE INTO THE UKRAINE

PENETRATION OF NEARLY 20 MILES

HEAVILY DEFENDED STRETCH OF RAILWAY SEIZED

Russian armoured columns in three days have penetrated between 10 and 20 miles into the Ukraine. They have reached points on the railway between Millerovo and Kamensk and have cut the trans-Don line at Tatsinskaya, which is 175 miles west of Stalingrad.

The fall of scores of towns and villages has placed in Russian hands an area of 20,000 square miles bounded roughly by the Don, the trans-Don railway and the Rostov-Voronezh line.
