AIIL.I.EK : Director. Institute 'for Prii- pngcinda Analysis ! (Written for the AP feature Service) . ] NEW YORK — So fur. German ' war propaganda has been much better than the British or French. This is due to the nature of the war itself. The Germans, amazingly successful in their military campaign in Poland, could afford to send out rhotographs. and to let newspapermen go right along behind their armies. The British and French, on the other hand, have had very little news , to give out. There has boon little action on the Western Front. And a Ions colorless capaign to strangle Germany : by economic blockade will not pro- I duce many news stories. ' One factor of enormous important i is the difference between 19M com- ; munication.s and today's. ''• In 1914, the British cut the German ; cables. Tho result was that the Allies controlled most of the news. Today —thanks to radio and monograms- all the countries in Europe can reach us an our newspaper. 1 ;. i Results? ; Despite the work done by German , propagandists to date, there is nn (sign that, Nn/i propagandists are be- i ginning to win even mild U. S. ap- i proval of Hitler's alliance wtih St/ilin j or of Hitler's conquests. i The very efficacy of Germany pro- ! paganda has boomerang possibilities, ' This is because Hitler is so gcncrnlly \ distrusted. The better the clissenminat- ion of his propaganda, the mure arc the American people reminded of ;> conquest they don't like and of a leader they like still less. Britain's Eight-Hall Pronounced as U. S. sentiment is in favor of the Allies, the French and British still have a great deal to over come as a result of their previous concessions —- notably at Munich— to Hitler. The British propagandists arc well aware that tho memory of Czechoslovakia presents, in the ease of many Americans, an extraordinarily difficult hurdle for the British. Taking Winston Churchill, a bitter opponent of the Munich p;ict, into the British cabinet, tended to make some Americans forget the appeasement policy. Honce Churchill's appointment was effective propaganda in America for England. •Iro(|imis' Incident On the other side, a recent Germany propaganda act was the warning issued by Admiral Raoder that the S.
