, JULY 6, 1939 "In The Middle" Status Not Comfortable -For Residents Of Danzig By NKA Service Pajiijig today Is literally "hi the middle." •Sjiculd the long-feared European war break out with a clash ever the possession of this ancient city, |t would probably find Itself immediately tl)e point o'f "convergence of military planes Twin the -Euro- a Jowl point, vast air oiihlcls coiiid begin a linos I Immediately. paijzlg' ,1s,- Cflly )"75 iiiiles, less than »n hour's b'ombliw lime, fr:m Warsaw, 1 the Polish ' capital," 'a'hd p;!Jy 350 nijles-, perhaps an hour Pftd )5 minutes .from B.ei'lin. And bo.tlr Poland and Germany have ----' air fields 'much closer to .,, i thai; these.; distances, in "fact, it seems likely lliat either country c;nld p|ace Danzig beneath a sipwer of bombs in-less .'than a "- half hour. From Moscow, P<iris and London it, is roughly SOD miles li Danzig, which nicans that jn Jess than four hours bombers from the great air forces of those countries could be pver Da«?ig, and the time nnd distance la Rome is scarcely greater. WOBBLY DANZIG Assuming that Danzig became the spark in the European arsenal, a brief but sharp physical struggle for possession of ihc cltj which Is loday nominally neither Polish ;nor.German;.biit a Free City, might te the first "curtain raiser' to the Etiroiwan tragedy. Cut its "ia-llie- mlddle" pisiticn suggests that a very few days after the first bomb fell there might be no more Dan- The present wobbly status of Danzig as a Free Cltj is just one more of the Versailles solutions cf piessing Cui-jpenn problems which Is being questioned today. Trie problem was simple. Poland was being created. It could not exist, economically, without an outlet .to ; lhc sea assured to its commerce. The only . practicable ojie was the vlstanla river with Its ancient port.of Danzig at its mouth. So, said the peacemakers, why not place Danzig back in the pa- siiKn.'it held fcr 300 years, frqm 1454,, to 1793, as an independent city?-.A-'League"of- Nations coin- tnissionec. cguld be installed ,. tq ses fhat Poland got its uninterrupted right of-"a sea opening and jtt that' Iccal EClf-goVeri)rnent- of the Dan? zigers, then nearlj all Germans, was kept intact It sounded good. But the Dan- zi?ers never forgot that since 17D3, at the second partition of Poland, Danaig had been Gennan The gradual intrusion of Poles especially In high positions, customs posts, mercantile jobs and the like, »as resented And Germany ne\er forgave Ibr splitting cff of East Prussia by the neutial 'corndcr' ending in IJanzig at the sea. "RETUHN TO REICH" Now the pressure is rising Theie seems little doubt that most, Dan- the German homeland." But could Poland see that happen by violence and .without guarantee.of a certain sea outlet,-' without the possibility of loss 'of lugir own independence? It would seem a perfect place for peaceable adjustment -of perfectly valid claims by both sides. - But the mcod of Europe just now power in the conflicting claims at Danzig, is no longer in a positio: lo excrcisp li. One .of the liaditional nicclin places, and clashing points bctwec thus bcKme a of the air fleets of Europe as well, distressingly "in the middle" today as it has Ireen for centuries.
