BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS E DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OP NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHRAST MISSOURI VOLUME XXXVr—NO. 127. Blylhevllle Cornier lilylhevlllc Herald Htylhcvllle Dally N Mississippi Vjilley Danzig Settlement Question Of Days Only Nazis Insist BERLIN, A»£. 17. (UP)—Nazi quarters said totlaj that settlement of the Danzig problem is a question of days They compared the present status of the Danzig issui to Hint of 10 days or two weeks before the Sudeten settle nient last year. Diplomatic activity gathered-* '. speed and it was reported thai ihe summoning of the Reichstag for a government declaration was being considered. The German controlled press opened n bitter campaign against , Poland, meanwhile, and declared • that-in addition to Danzig the _ Reich must regain the Polish corridor. . There can be no. compromise on : either .the press declared, the only concession offered to Poland was a free port on the Baltic in what would again be German territory. . Kelurn of Germany's colonies was not mentioned in the current . outburst but Germany's position oji that question has been made clear.repeatedly. Thus, Molt Hitler apparently is determined to recover everything that Germany lost by the Versailles treaty. : The press assailed Poland as an aggressor and clamored in detail about a "wave of terror" against the ,German minority in Poland. It was announced in Warsaw that 100 young Germans have been arrested on charges of terrorism and violence. The arrests constituted another talking jwint in tile press attack. Political quarters in Warsaw suggested that Germany's tactics arc to alienate Poland from her allies and even from Ihe sympathy of the United States by portraying her (o the world as a "voracious aggressor." Germany also, these quarters .said, is spreading reports abroad of peace talk plans to make it appear that Germany wants pea but Poland does not. Tlie Italian press joined in the .campaign by attacking Poland's attitude and implicitly warning her to accept Germany's terms and avoid a general war. In London It was reported tiiat Great Britain Is considering giving Poland unprecedented guarantees even greater than Britain's present'-'pledge of military nld if Poland ts Attacked. --The -Voelkischer Beobachter in nn editorial headlined "without compromise," said that tlic Danzig and corridor questions admitted of no compromise or conferences, it summarized German demands as: 1—Danzig is a German city and desires to return to Germany. 2—Danzig and East Prussia must be connected with Germany again "in nn cITcctlre close union with (he motherland." Poland's need for n foreign trade outlet to the Baltic '"can at any time be fulfilled 100 per cent without harming both German demands," it said. Tlic Nacht Aiis Gabe took even a sharper tone: "There can be no compromise over the Danzig question. There can also be no compromise over the corridor problem because it is obvious that a settlement of this question is only possible in accordance with the German viewpoint. In any case tlic questions of Danzig and the corridor are questions of German honor. Consequently no compromises can be considered at all." Tension was reported increasing along si 150-mile stretch of frontier , which both Poland and Germany closed to transit or individuals. Numerous minor clashes between workers and police were reported on both sides of the frontier. Reports from Silesia- said,that members of the German minority whom Polish police prevented from crossing to work In Germany had .several minor clashes with the police. Similar clashes were reported on the German side between members of the |M>lish minority and German police. Next Move Up To Opposition Says Governor LITTLE ROOK, Aug. 17. (UP)Gov.
