MGESIX HOPE STAR, HOpfe, ARKANSAS Wednesday, OctoWi 'Crises 1 Are Stepping Stones on Hitler's Path to Power By PAUL ROSS NBA Sen-ice Staff Correspondent Adolf Hitler today stands on a height of power achieved by few—if any— other men before him. His slightest action brings international repercussions. His merest utternace is studied down to the last syllable by apprehensive statesmen. The heads of powerful nations fly to meet him at his suggestion. Though the immediate danger of war seems to be past, a word from Adolf Hitler could plunge the world into the most frightful strife in its history. How did the one-time house-painter maneuver himself into this position? Leader of a malcontent group since 1920; co-leader of the abortive and comical but prophetic 1923 "beer hall" putsch in Munich; advocate of a program which promised all things to all men such as abolition of capitalism to the workers and retention of capitalism to the capitalists; hypnotic orator; stooge for some of Germany's most powerful bankers and industrialists— Adolf Hitler was finally called by President Von Hindenburg to take power on January 30. 1933. Within 60 days, he transformed his legal Chan- cellorship into a dictatorship. The day after he became Chancellor. Hitler dissolved the Reichstag and set March 5 as the date for a new elec- WAKE UP YOUR LIVER BILE- Without Calomel—And You'll Jump Out of Bed in the Morning Rarin' to Go The liver should pour out two pounds of liquid bile into your bowels daily.

Hitler scored his fcrealest triumph by marching his army into Austria nnd completing thc "ansch- Kiss." Once more, France nnd Brnltin failed to act. Austria had hardly been digested when Nazi agitation was renewed for "autonomy" for the Sudeten-German nreacs of Czechoslovakia. And again Europe teetered on the edge of war— and Hitler's will. lehmsf the Scenes in Washington By Rodney Dutcher The four-power conference of Great Britain, France. Italy and Germany having granted him virtually all he demanded of Czechoslovakia, Adolf Hitler saunters from the conference hall, the Fuehrerhaus iii Munich, Germany, very much the victor—without having fired a shot. Directly behind him, in the radiphoto above, marches Heinrich Himmlcr, chief of thc German secret police. tion. At the strategic moment—February 27—the Reichstag building suddenly burned down. Although a half- witted Dutch Communist was later beheaded for this crime, there is a widely-held suspicion that Nazis set the blaze going. In any event, it provided Hitler with the excuse he needed. The following clay he obtained from v.on Hindenburg a decree abolishing freedom of speech, press and assembly, privacy of mail and telegraph. Death became the penalty for various political offenses. The day after, the republican flag was abolished by decree. Next, Hitler's storm troopers arrested his political opponents by the thousands and either executed them or put them in concentration camps. Those who could, escaped. With the opposition leaderlcss, the Nazi party swept the elections and brought in a rubber-stamp Reichstag. Eighteen days later this Reichstag gave Hitler dictatorial power and voted itself and the democratic form of government out of existence. Persecution of thc Jews had been organized en a national basis in the meantime. Later thc Socialist and Communist parties were banned. Among thc first moves of Hitler in thc international field was withdrawal of Germany Crom the League of Nations and the 1933 disarmament conference, both on October 14. Four days later Hitler demanded the right to arm the Third Reich and to build forts like France's. On June H, 1934. Hitler laid the foundations for the "Rome-Berlin axis" by conferring with Benito Mussolini in Rome. That same day. he announced a moratorium on German payments of war debts. Two weeks later, on the 30th, armed squads of faithful Nazi slew scores of other Nazi who were planning to revolt against Hitler. Also shot were a couple of generals in the German Army which had been resisting Hitler secretly. Cn August 2, Paul Von Hindenburg died and the last obstacle for Hitler was thus removed. He made himself President, as well as Chancellor. Hitler's first international victory came on January 13, 1935, when the Saar region, long separated from Germany by the Versailles Treaty, voted heavily to return to the Reich under a plebiscite authorized by the Treaty. Having used the Treaty to his advantage. Hitler then denounced it on March 16 and told thc world that Germany wiis introducing universal military conscription. France and England did nothing. Almost a year later, on March 7, 1936, Hitler violated the Locarno Treaty by inarching his new army into the de- WASHINGTON-nehind all maneuvers of the U. S. government in relation to war-clouded Europe has been the strong belief, firmly held by thc man in the While House as well as other officials, that Hitler is aiming toward a German war of revenge against France. This conviction nurtures a certainty that ci'iicossions lo Hcrr Hitler will only strengthen Germany's economic powcr, her war machine and her prestige toward thc day when France will be attacked and Britain will come to her defense. Hence the curiously complicated administration policy of trying to make it appear that the U. S. would not have stood by in complete neutrality if England ancl France had insisted on a prompt showdown with Germany und Czechoslovakia. Mr. Roosevelt ancl Secretary Hull went on thc theory that the only thing which might dissuade Hitler from, further aggression would be a threat i of British-Fiench-Russian military i opposition plus vague threats of some-! thing or other which might bc done 1 by the U. S.. They felt Hitler had been encouraged by assurances this country would cause him no trouble. But their efforts to counteract that impression in Berlin obviously were bound to be useless unless Britain herself made thc strongest and most convincing threats. A sort of corollary American policy developed, based on hope thai strong declarations by Roosevelt and Hull, aimed at Hitler, Might "put spine" in the British and Franch. But public ORDINANCE NO. 533 An Ordinance to Be An Ordinance Entitled: An Ordinance Fixing the Annual Payment to Be Paid By thc Arkansas Louisiana Gas Company, A Delaware Corporation, In the City of Hope, Arkansas, For the Use 'sentiment for pence nnd Isolation prevented Roosevelt ancl Hull from soy- Ing anything strong enough to bc effective. tUtlcr Doesn't Scare Easily Answering the question why the government couldn't mind its own business, White House and State Department counsellors sny its very much the business of the U. S, to work for world pence ,to obtruct efforts of dictators to wipe out democracies, and to use every diplomatic effort to avert a day when the U, S. might stand almost alone in n world of aggressive war machines with guns pointed nt the western hemisphere. The hope Hitler could bo scared or bluffed nt the time was Washington's best bet for peace. American diplomats don't share the belief of some high British officials that Nazi Ger- many cnn be dtpcnded on to spend her strength ngnlnsl Soviet Russlft In- stend of seeking complete European domination by nn nttnck on Prance. Although hnrdly in n position to egg England on to n stronger stnnd, officials kept their fingers crossed as inspired cablegrams reported England had threatened military co-oncrntion with France in case of invasion of Czechoslovakia. They knew better. When Germany first began maneuvers equivalent to mobilization, both Roosevelt nnd Hull made speeches they hoped would directly affect Hitler's plans. The effect hasn't been noticeable. But it's contended at the Stntc Department that the government did all it could. Peace Through Trade Pacts? Stronger gestures, in keeping with thc present neutrality laws which thc administration wants repealed, might have been made. The State Department might have invoked the 1921 peace treaty which forbade shipment 1 ) of munitions to Germany. But Hull recently denied publicly that his department was violating the Inw in issuing licenses for munitions exports to Germany nnd apparently no such step wns contemplated. Faced with proof thnt strong words nnd solemn admonitions hnve no dissuading effect on n man like Hitler, thc Stnte Department fnlls back on its only concrete, program designed lo promote world pence. Tills is the program of international trade agreements so dear to Secretary , •'Its effectiveness as a pence program may bc duoblful. Hull and his associates, nevertheless, insist it's the only constructive effort tlnllties for pence now this worried world.
