Twice he has used Ihc threat of his make (he rest of Europe bow to his will —when he re-oceupfed (lie Rlilneland and when lie absorbed. Austria. In the following - dispatch Frederick c. Occhsner, ' manager of Die Berlin i bureau of the United Press, writes tlial Germany loday.Is preparing for a "totalltarinn war" in 'which the bntllefront will lie as deep as the nation. } » * * BY FREDERICK C. OECHSNKR United Press Correspondent '(Copyrifhf, 1938, by-United Press) BERLIN. March 22.—(UPI—Once inore Germany is arming for "Der Tag" nnd Ihls lime she docs not Intend to be on Ihe losing side. She has drawn blueprints for •what may turn out to be Hie mosl powerful war machine in Europe, and as fast as factory wheels can turn, those paper plans are being transformed Into ships, lanks, airplanes and forts. .'. In the next war Germany's bailie front will be as deep ns the ntition. Women will be subject to conscription under the defense net. Every wheat bin, dairy, brewery, electrician's shop and even farm animals will be part of the nrmy. Ludendorff, in his grave, no longer counsels the German general staff out of his experiences In Die World War, but one Idea he offered them persists. It is the idea of "Tolalkrieg" — totalitarian war — in which every unit of the iialioii almost down to babies is considered In the lighl of Us military function. For example, Germany must not think of a horse as an animal lhat pulls a plow or can be ridden to hounds, but In terms of hauling a gun carriage or cnrrylno- a cavalryman. Among some Germans Ihc iden still endures Hint in the World War a victorious army was humiliated because of the collapse of the home front. That is why so much emphasis is being placed on welding all units of Ihc nation Inlo n weapon for the next war. It is not a difficult task, for Germans nre a military-minded people. They like parades, martial music and uniforms. Under Den Linden swarms with uniformed'men. On week ends the field gray of the army predominates, but a stroller nlso sees air corps rnen in steel-blue; the black Wlforms nnd berets of the lank corps; the navy's blue; mid the oiack and brown of S3 arid SA men. Those uniforms arc a reminder that Adolf Hitler probably could throw 12,000,000 men Into the scales of llie'next war. No nation is more anxious or more able to guard its military secrets. NO embarrassing questions are asked in the Reichstag- no opposition party man questions the wisdom of n military appropriation, because there is no opposition Party. Adolf Hiller speaks and his words are the law. •Foreign observers say thai there now has been accumulated a secret war chest of 1,000,000000 relchs- marks in gold. Mobilization lias been worked out to the most minute detail and civilians as well as artny reserves will know exaclly where to go and what to do when war starts. One phase or her military preparation that Germany cannot Keep secret is the elaborate system of 'autobahnen," high speed federal highways along which troops can move with a speed hitherto linknown to Ihe military mind The rapidity with which German troops moved inlo'Austria the other day is an indication of what Germany's enemies can expect. The army has between 600000 and 1,000,000 men with one class to reserve. A wealth of military brains Is available despite Hitler's •bloodless purge" of the high command, and many military experts say the German general staff is rivalled only by the French. The average German is a good soldier Austriane Move Out as Germans Move In JTHURSDAY, MARCH 24, 1938 Weekly Sunday School Lesson -.'• 'i nv \v.\r.
