MONDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1.038 SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTO GREAT tiRITAIN SEEKS ACCORD WITH ITALY Ui """ ;i1 " Ite '"' ~ " Directs Query At Great Britain; Would Protect Germans Elsewhere BERLIN. Feb. 21. (UP)—Ac Hitler's declaration of Germany's inleni lo prelect German minorities In olher countries was interpreted In official circles today as a warn- in" in Czechoslovakia to guard against any action which Dei Fuehrer would consider a violation of Ihe rights of minorities. Although Hitler did not mention Czechoslovakia specifically he left no doubt of his implication and it was believed that he meant that in the future he will take more positive action if in his opinion the 3,500,000 Germans there are mistreated. Czechoslovakia borders Germany. Much of it' lies between Genn<inv and Austria. Official circles professed not to know whether the pronouncement presaged new activity by the CzeOi- oslovakian Germans. These quarters sold they believed that individual eases of Infringement against the German minorities would be treated separately. Meanwhile German s awaited confidently expected overtures from Great Britain that would break the increasingly sharp division between the totalitarian and the Democratic nations of Europe. Hitler yesterday warned nations wllh, sizeable German minorities on the borders of the new Reich to desist from inflicting sorrow" on 1lir>se peonies on the pain of possible conflict with his armed forces. He (old Great Britain .she could have peace wllh Germany at the price of disgorging colonies she gained ^by World War, victory. iiVi.-HiiSaaf'-df•!Ihe. greatest oratorical, efforts of. his. meteoric careef-^i three-hour speech beforethe Reich* sta<? and the diplomatic representatives of virtually all the world- Hitler ranged over scores of points en foreign policy and domestic affairs.

He sided with Japan In what he termed her war a°ntnsl "Bolshevism" in china. One by one he eliminated Prance. Spain and Eastern Asia from tlie scope of his territorial desires, but. turning to Britain, he said: "Much has been snltl nnd even more has been written in recent vears about the basic differences between France and England on one hand nnd Germany on the olher. "It is not exactly clear to me Just what these differences are supposed to be. Germany, as I more tlian once have emphasized, has no further territorial demands againsl France in Europe. It is our hope that with the return of the Saar the period of Franco-German territorial disputes Is definitely ended Nor has Germany any quarrel whatsoever with England — aside from our colonial desires. "For any remotely conceivable conflict there is no visible basis. The onlv thin? which poisons and therefore burdens relations between - these states Is the almost unendurable newspaper agitation which is conducted by those conlrles (Prance and England) under the slogan 'freedom of individual opinion.' " Hints at New Aid to Insurgents in Spain Of the civil war in Spain, he said: "Germany and Italy have like views and hence are dealing; wllh the problems In Ihe same manner. Their aim is lo make sure Ihere shall be a nationalist Spain completely independent. He devoted several minutes to an attack on the foreign press which he said. In part at least, constantly misrepresents Germany. Two hours of the three of speechmaking were a grandiose review of his five-year administration. He piled statistics upon statistics, plc- Inrlng Germany as a nation in which the citizenry, army and political party worked hand In hand, wllh production and'foreign trade on the increase, health and comfort assured for the people, and strikes and lockouts rendered Impossible.
