MONDAY, MAY 2, 1938 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Sought By Germany Germany's "Intentions" In Czechoslovakia Arc Revealed By Flynn Wliat, re-ally, closs Germany -want In Czechoslovakia? Protection for Germans living within Czechoslovakia!! borders —or another, immensely more practical, economic ndvtinlage? . . . The following article by Jcluf T. Plynn, noted autlior- V economist whose newspaper | writings appear exclusively In -- NBA Servi-jc and Courier News, throws new light on tliis delicate mld-Rnropt-an political situation. BY JOHN T. I'l.YN.V (Copyright, 1338, NKA Service, Inc.) Slowly tlic shape of .Hitler's next net in Chechoslovakia becomes clearer. But the real reason why Hitler wants Czechoslovakia is generally lunored. Wliat is he driving at? News columns talk ot deep racial yearning's—Ihe .hunger of Uic German Faiiierlaml for her three million sons In Czechoslovakia. Hut there is a good deal more lo all tills Hum that. In western Czechoslovakia, nestling against Germany, is Bohemia, a Czech province. In the East is Kuthenia. In the center is Slovakia. It is, first of all, Unit small piece of Czechoslovakia called Bohemia that is important. In Bohemia are those 3.500,000 Germans who make the desperate racial issue. But more important Uimi Germans is something else. KKiimnniH, Yugoslavia and Poland. Jmmitlom plants. These plants arc now largely dominated by the Sclmeider-Creusot concern. French munition magnates. They supply the munitions of Czechoslovakia, and chemicals. The Aussig works They dominate the iaiifin-Klcmcnt auto works of Czechoslovakia, Avia, the airplane industry, Kablo, the Entente cable company, the po'.sei plants of Brno-Donat and Kon- striictiva. the largest road construction corporation. They own interests In Polskie Zaklady, Polish munitions works and other industries throughout the Little Entente. But besides lliis there are ini-1 pnrtant pig iron nnd steel, textiles and many highly developed industrial production plants, lignite, coal and chemicals. Tlie Aussig vvorsk near the German frontier are the largest on the continent outside of Germany. '•- • '' ' ; -- • . . 4 Need : .Factories atiU Grain .fields If 'Adoff Hitler 'can add thl-Tric'ii Middle-European Pittsburgh to his assets he will have greatly enriched flermnnys economic resources. But ' tif will have done far more. U In his book'"Meiu Kampf," Hitler siiicl: "We shall stop our eternal driving toward tlic South and West and turn our eyes lo land in the East. When we speak today ot more territory in Europe we can only Ihink In Ihe first Instance ot Russia- and the border slates under Russian suzerainty." Hitler was of course speaking of the Ukraine—for thnt is the part of Russia he wants. Its rich grain fields are precious to Germany. Tlic border states are chiefly parts of Lithuania, parts of Poland, Czechoslovakia and her Balkan allies. And Cueehosloviiki.i is n magnificent pathway across EurO]M to wilhin 100 miles of the Ukraine. Czechoslovakia Has 1'owerful Allies Does this mean that the German legions will soon march into Czechoslovakia? An attack upon Czech- jiislovakia will be n very different I "ling from an attack upon Au.stri.i. " As someone has observed. Austria was a country with a world of friends and no allies. Czechoslovakia is a country with few friends but many powerful allies. First, there is the Little Entente —Czechoslovakia, Rumania and Yugoslavia. These co_n tries are bound together for defense nnd their tics were drawn closer to»ether in 1935. Then France has a "mutual assistance" pact with Czechoslovakia. France .lias announced she will fight if her nlly is attacked. Czechoslovakia " has a similar treaty of mutual assistance with Russia. Czechoslovakia's German frontier is guarded by formidable mountains. And, of course, she has a strong army and immense slores of munition.-,. An attack upon Czechoslovakia might mean instant European war with Russia, France, Ihe Ultle Entente. It might mean war I Mtweoji these countries with popu- '.Uions aggregating 33S.OOO.OOO and Germany, Austria and. perhaps, Italy, with a combined population of 115,000.000 or but one-third as much. And two of these countries have (he most powerful military machine in the world. How tlic rest of Europe would line no in such a Tight must be left to guess, but ttie chances would, be • heavily ngainst Germany. Penetration a la Nazi- Hitler's Best IScl Does it not, therefore, seem more, likely that Hitler will take some different course for his drive to the East? At present in Bohemia is a \mlted German population of 3,- 500.CCO, now nearly completely Nazi- fled. TJial population may be depended on to create an Immense disturbance and lo precipitate an -Incident when required. Nazi penetration of C«;;hoslova- \ kla looks like the best bet for Hit! ler. And reports of his demands upon that country seem to bear Simple Exercises Kecp t Mrs. Roosevelt • Fit For Active Life She 'Musi Lead As Hie "Nazi menace" grows, these neatly camouflaged armored cars participated in defense nmnciiyers near Prague, O.celioslorakla. 111' MA11MN VOIWf, 1 NKA Snvloi- Staff <'urri's|itinilt>nt NRW YORK.--Mis. l-'ranklln D.
