Us very fine slcel mid iron industry supplied Germany with much war material befoi-e the war and also during the war, when the Oennans occupied It. Since tlie war, Luxemburg has been in a close customs union with Belgium. What now worries the directors of Belgian policy is the sudden outbreak of Nnxi activity among the Germans still living in Kupeii mid Mtilincdy. There is every reason to believe the movement is financed from Germany. And Belgium is wondering just when Germany will make demands about Eiipen and Mahnedy—and Luxcm- l>m-(f. . r "I'He Belgians have, however, one • good assurance to which to clinu The Neville Chamberlain govern"-' nicnt of England, .so wobbly in so many angles of European policy ims reiterated that it will not slaiiii for an attack upon either France or Belgium. * * * Denmark is the most unarmed, important, little country in the world. And Denmark is (mother of those minor powers menaced by the claws of the German Nazi eagle. Denmark has not increased up- Iiraprialions to enlarge its armv and. air force. Denmark does not do anything la anger its powerful neighbor. (It has only recently decided to spend $5,000,000 on airmail precautions.) But there is a shallow over the pence ivJiich the Duties now enjoy, and its" name is -'North Schlcswig!

The Danes were wise an:! not greedy. They laid claim only lo North Schlesu(j, whie'Ji a plebiscite showed lo be Danish In population. So ordered, so done. But since the Nazis came into IHiwer, Germans have been financially backed so they systematically buy up land in North Schlcs- wig and settle there. German papers tn towns just across the frontier in Germany keep up an aglla- tion. Many German regiments anil air squadrons arc stationed near the frontier. The Nazis undoubtedly have their eye on North Schlesivii. If Germany becomes involved in a big war, the Danes are apprescn- sive that the Nazis may demand military strategic positions on Danish soil for their air force. Denmark could not resist. •* Farther south, the comic opera P~ jinncipality of Liechtenstein is very likely soon to be another casualty of Ilitlerlsm. Thus may end Die independent BLYTKEVILLE (ARK.)'
