Says Collapse I.lkely As for the Insanity theory, one noted European specialist who hns observed Hiller closely for many vcars Is convinced lhal he eventually will suffer a psychic collapse. Certainly, he Is emotionally unbalanced, nnd the news of repeated Germnn defents mny hnve turned n harmless case of rug-chewing into something wane. As for Ihc Imprisonment theory, this Is the least likely of nil. Hlmmler, if he wished lo get rid of Hillcr, probably wouldn't stoi^ short of murder. Should Hitler ever escape from Jail, Hlmmlcr's lite wouldn't be worth nn Inflated German mnrk. If Hlmmler actually killed Hitler, he hns left himself an opening for n future alibi.
