213, 1936 Germany on Good Behavior Until Big Athletic Meet Is Over My MILTON IIRONNEK NEA Service Staff Corresponiletil .LONDON.—Natfi Germany's next coup—the annexation of the Free City of Danzig—Is being held in abeyance. • • Nazi lenders' plans for the accomplishment of this new putsch will not b? revealed for some sly weeks. For Europe has a peace Insurance policy covering that period of time, its other name Ls "Olympic Games." Tile Nazi government has made vast preparations for the Olympiad lo be Held In llerlln In August, it Is anticipating a two-fold huge benefit therefrom.

Strict orders have been given that until t'nc games are over, Jews are not (o be openly molested, socialists and pacifists are not to be hailed iiito court on truinncd-i>i) charges, and Protestant ministers are not to be driven Trom their pulpits because they will not conform to th e Nazi idea of what l, fitting. The whole) idea is lo impress t'nc foreign visitors that nil is lovely and peaceful in •Germany and (hat the niwsnansr men. magazine writers and authors of books who have said the con- trarv. ji.'d monumental liars. Keeps J'cace Internationally, Too The same motive is going 'to restrain Germany from "anv international overt ads until after August, if the Nazis were to start anything serious in Danzig at present, war clouds would lower, some of t'nc Olvmoic learns might riot come lo Berlin, and worst of all •foreigners u-oiild be afraid to visit Germany. Whatever mischief th» Na-'i^ contemplate as to Danzig will, therefore, be kept in cold storage -until • mid-September. Then they may "right" another "wrong."

Such throngs of Nazis in Danzig demand reunion with Germany- an eventuality that must, tc postponed at icas i until the"Olympic Games nre concluded as a Free city under guardianship of the League of Nations.

But I'ne Dairalg people were not satisfied. They did thinps that seemed obnoxious to the Poles. Thereupon, to the astonishment and dismay of Danzig, the Poles decided to make a port ot their own inside the Polish corridor -ana just a few miles away Thus was begun Gdynia, largely financed by French money.
