FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8 , 1939 Country's Isolation Makes Real Assislance [ : r o in Allies Very Doubtful , By BRUCE CATTON Courttr News Wastilnglon Correspondent WASHINGTON, Sept. 8.-Grei\t Britain aiul Prance face a strategic problem ot tremendous difficulty, ill the opinion of nrmy experts here. Going to the aid of Poland, they are up ngainsl a situation in which it Is almost, fmpcssible for them to supply that help swiftly or effectively. For the simple and inescapable Jact Is that Poland is tucked away where the English and French can't get at, it. .The biggest factor, as the army men here see It,-Is Hitler's non- negresslon treaty with Russia. That isolates Poland, makes Hitler's eastern, toil sate, and tremendously increases the difficult}' of applying a blockade. Yet n blockade, in the end, offers the best, way' — almost the only way — in which the British and, French can hope to bent Hitler H is believed. Meanwhile .Poland and Rumania are negotiating for reinforcement of the Polish-Rumanian treaty of mutual assistance upon which Poland counts to receive supplies and aid from Britain and France SIEGFRIED MNK TOUGH TO CRACK The Baltic at uro.soiil l s Impassable. Italy—right n;\v, anyway—Is neutral. The only place where Germany can bc v attacked is along her uostern bolder, where the famous Siegfried line 1ms been built.
