MONDAY, MARCH 28, Ifl38 'HITLER HIS EDGE BLYTKEVILLE (ARK.) COUUIRR NEWS Nazi Troops Now At Very Doorway To Industrial North Italy By MILTON BRONNKK NBA .Service Staff C'orrefliindenl PARIS.—Only yesterday lientto Mussolini was the teacher of Adolf Hitler. Today the teacher is thoi full force of this is not yet d. That will came In some not-distant tomorrow. Today there Is still much fair talk of the Berlin-Rome axis. Today there js still Ihe memory of Ihe long lei- ter the Fuehrer wrote to the Duce explaining why it was "necessary 1 for him to gobble up Austria. Today there is still Italian pleasure over the telegram Hitler sent Mussolini, saying:, he would never 1'orget his acquiescence in the Conquest of Austria. But facts are stubborn things and Mussolini will .soon have to face them. In central 'Europe some years ago Mussolini had two ainbltions: 1. To keep, Austria independent, so as to have a bulter slate between Italy and mighty Oci- many. 2. To make Italy the- dominating commercial force in ilie rich Danubian valley. In March, 193-4, he brought about the famous protocols of Rome between Italy, Austria and Hungary guaranteeing Austria's independence. In April, 1935, at the- Stresa, conference, Mussolini nppend- fK Ills signature to an accord be tsreen Italy, England and Franc; 1 , guaranteeing Austria's, independence. In the preceding January he had signed a Franco-Italian declaration to the same (-fleet. But"he did more than sign pieces of paper. A couple of years ago. when it looked as if Germany were going to annex Austria, Mussolini niaxsed a regular army at the Brenner Pass, ready to m.uch into Austria. The Brenner Pass was his sensitive point. A feeble Austria could not menace Italy. But n strong Germany, camped on the other side of that pass, could pour its armies down Into the Italian valleys while bomber planes aroned overhead. In those low lands lie Milan, Turin, Venice, all tiie industrial north of Italy where are located > the/jnaty armament plants of the country, But, : snisUjry--' ijjfc" tee - u mflcle since that parade of Italian sol- .rt'trs at the Brenner. Mussolini •j'AYde lite war on Ethiopia . and found: in'-Hitler a -sympathizing friend. But Hitler did more than that. He took Mussolini up on' a high mountain and gave" him a vision of Italian control of the Mediterranean. Between them they could keep France .and England quiet, while they pursued their ambitious .plans. And while Mussolini was still agog. Hitler walked into Austria. He now not only has tjie upper hand over Mussolini with German troops at 'the Brenner, but he is?hi a position .to make Germany the dominant power economically, if, not territorially, in the Danube valley. The annexation of Austria gives this greater Germany, as neighbors, Yugoslavia on the south and Hungary on the. east. And just beyond lies Rumania. The impact of a mighty military state is r boimd to be felt. Hitler vdll get l;ftwn his neighbors what he wants ^-plgs from Yugoslavia, wheat and oil from Rumania. That accomplished, he will be ready for more adventures. It •Will not be so easy to starve Germany by a naval blockade next time. German armies will eat meat from Yugoslav pigs and bread from Rumanian wheat. Planes and tanks will more, propelled by Rumanian oil. And Mussojini's Italy may have to stand by and be good little brother. Good Illlle brothers however, sometimes rebel. And it wouldn't be the strangest tur of events in history If some da, a land-gorged Hitler and n land- starved Mussolini were to face each other as foes over that same Brenner Pass where now they clasp hands in friendship. v >J&rets May Emigrate into Hudson Valley ALBANY, N. Y. (UP)-The Amer lean egret, whose customarv habitat is North and South Carolina and other Southern states, may "summer" in the Hudson River Valley. ° r - Djy'on stoncr. state geolo gist, said the white-plumed, long- necked, tapering-billed member of the heron family his been seen in this region occasionally during the past two summers. He expected the birds to migrate north in large numbers this spring. Previous to.the past two summers, the egret's most northerly recorded migration was New Jersey.
