REPORT OF A TASS CORRESPONDENT IN FRANCE

A TASS correspondent in Paris reports that the France Presse agency has received a secret instruction of the Minister of Information not to distribute foreign policy information favorable to the USSR, and also to give information about the situation in Eastern Europe not from Soviet, but from Anglo-American sources.

Troops have appeared around Paris in places where they were not previously. In particular, units of Le Clerc’s tank division have been deployed in Fontainebleau.
