One i.s Adolph Hitler the .shrewd mid judicial diplomat. The other is Adolph Hitler the irrational and fiery /cnlot. By which personality dominates Ihe other, the issue of war or peace in Europe may be decided. Hitler's calm and measured audacity in his dealings with foreign nations, his brilliant flashes of improvisation in doplomacy, his warlike ways without getting inti war, all contrast .strongly with the erratic, willful manner he displays at other SESp^r^isss:"»: SrrSSrs^ ie wl nnrd ^ " ^'"^ '° I F " rmcrs ' Ulli °"' ;incl aflcr that P«U- II!«„, TII , r ,, cular bit t)f business was settled he IHUci I hirsts for Revenge madc Kcvc ,. al morc tri t this Ahcn.s.s h.,, f . , name for it, but m g io n, speaking befor a number ot _..„...„, m; is a brooder.

Part if lliant was due to Archie Wright, leader of the Dairy Farmer's Unios.
