Adolf Hitler must have a victory. If he is balked at Danzig It is likely that he will snatch a cheap victory in southeastern Europe at the expense of Slovakia, Hungary or Jugoslavia. After bringing his people up to their present pitch he can scarcely mark time Indefinitely. Those are the net conclusions arrived at after a personal off- .tlve-rccord cable canvass of lending United Press Diplomatic 'reporters In England and on the continent. Only a month ago men in Washington with access to secret reports from all over Europe told me (hat the chances of war in 1939 were fifty-IiUy. Since then, despite London foreign office denials, there are definite reasons to believe that the British are urging Poland to be as unprovocative as possible toward Germany on the Danzig question. And, as at the lime of Munich, Britain^ attitude is a controlling factor. After parliament adjourns on Aug. 4 those In the British government who want to satisfy Germany on lhc Dnnzig question will have more elbow room for Ihcir efforts. Already there are signs that Britain's advice to Poland to go easy with Germany is' having its-'effect.. Cables from the three most interested capitals — London, Berlin and Warsaw — agree that the chances for some sort of trans- aclional deal on Danzig are fairly good, current private negotiations are for the purpose of finding some basis for a deal which would satisfy Germany on Danzig and riot be wholly unacceptable to the Poles.
