WEDNESDAY. MARCH 27,1940 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS HITLER'S IP Cold Toward Adolf Now PAGE THBEfe •"- •Spanish Leader Remains Aloof From Present Ktiropean Troubles RV MILTON HKONNEK NEA Service Suropcaii i Correspondent LONDON, March '27. — Perhaps the greatest disappointment, lo Nazi Germany and the greatest relief to Britain and France lias been the cool, aloof attitude of Franco Spain. 1. Regardless of British sea power, he hoped Germany would get iron ore, copper and mercury from Spain in payment for war supplies General Franco received from German}' during the civil war. 2. He believed Genera! Franco would adopt such an equivocal, if not semi-hostile attitude, that Trance would'find It necessary to divert several hundred thousand troops to watch the frontier between Prance and Spain. On foitn, Hitler's expectations were not without good ground. He had intervened in the civil war on Franco's side after signing a nonintervention agreement with Britain and France. His Condor Legion, air squadrons, and teclini- • clans played a considerable part In righting the republican government of Madrid. SOVIET TACT ALIENATED SPAIN' III January, 1939, Franco made a cultural agreement with Germany, so that, by study, each nation would have a closer anil friendlier knowledge oi the other. In April, 1930, Franco signed the anti-Comintern pact, So Franco was shocked beyond measure at news that Hitler and Stalin had signed a pact. Then Franco had his next surprise, for Franco dissolved the Communist party, as it entered (he war, and suppressed Red activities. France sent as ambassador to Spain Marshal Pctain, the hero of Verdun, who is well-liked in Spain and who smoothed the way to closer relations. The old-time friendship between Spain and Britain was also resumed. Britain has always been the principal buyer of Spanish oranges and sherry, FINNISH AVAR MAKKED LAST STRAW The final blow for Franco came when , Russia made war upon Finland, and'Hitler kept the ring clear , for ..Stalin by holding, up Italian supplies for the Finns ant.' by threatening Sweden and Norway. The Franco regime had reason to be grateful to Finland. Duriiis the civil war, the Finnish minister in Madrid look under his protection mnny friends of Franco and preserved their liberties and lives as long as he could. The new Falangist paper, "Alcazar," organized a reception to the Finnish minister lo siiow Spanish sympathy for Finland's cause. .lust before the European war started, the Germans organized a trading monopoly to get minerals Germany needs. Part of this was to be In payment for German war material turnlslied (luring tlie civil war. Part wns to have been p.iid for by the bailer system. There was a fleet of German freighters in Spanish ports ready for loading. They are still hua- dling 1 there. Many of them Imve no cargo because the war lias pit!. a stop to the whole trading scheme. Apparently, no new Spanish minerals will go into German shells. Name Supervisor For Manila School Cafeteria Manila Society—Personal vvlio dnys, h now Mo., Arc Husli'sstts (« Sui-lely Mrs. H. M.
