Blythcvllle Courier Blythevllle Hernia Mississippi Viilley Lender Blylhcvllle Dally News L PINTS Miller's Future Actions May Test Peace Plans Of Britain By United Press Tlie roar of cannon in Spain and the words of Chancellor Adolf Ifiller In Germany foretold today a coming test of Europe's armed peace. These developments Illi'iKlrated the trend: 1. Tlie Spanish war entered a decisive stage with General Francisco Franco's Insurgent army hurling itself against the desperate loyalist forces on the Catelonian frontier. Loyalists conscripted every man of military age In an uneven attempt to stop the superior armaments of the nationalist troops. 2. Hitler, opening a prebiscite campaign on annexation of Aus- Iria. warned that the Nazis would not ue halted in their effort to "make national socialism lhe creed ol all Germans." He said there were slill grievances to be settled—presumably such as Nazi rights- in Czechoslovakia—but expressed hope ihat compromise would be possible. Spain and Germany danger- marked the two principal obstacles which must be overcome if Great Britain Is to make effective her new policy of curbing the dictatorial powers and maintaining peace by a combination of threnls and compromise. Repercussions, felt acutely in France, made it likely that the rabinet of Premier Leon Blum would be defeated next week. Efforts were underway to prepare for a strong national union cabinet designed to strengthen French policy by uniting as maiiv political factions as possible. In Czechoslovakia Conrad Henlein, head of the Czechoslovakia Nazi party, demanded new elections to give the German minority greater representation in parliament but his proposal was likely to falll for lhe present.
