JOHNSON NKA Military Writer WASHINGTON. — News from Germany has greatly speeded planning for her [uture by several government, agencies here whlal) see n chance of nn earlier collapse than had been reported— although that was less early than many Americans have believed. Allied military experts nre virtually agreed that if we want a peace worth (lie paper it is written c", Hie fiist clause must disarm Germany completely and utterly. Thai is n hitherto nnpublicivred reason for tlie attempting revolt of some Sermau generals still un- loiietel by tlie Nazi madness. They have means of knowing what the distinguished professional soldiers of Britain, Hussia and this country decided after studying the problem of peace In Europe from a practical aspect unllngcd by sentimentality . These Reichswohr L'hlefs want to cut Germany's losses, play safe, and get her out of a bad business with at least » shirt. 13ut Hitler wants n desperate last stand, a (jamble that the Allies will lire of blood-letting anil case off, But once again, (.lie Corporal of Bei'chtcsgaclo is befooling his country. For (lie fact is dial the longer he ' lights, the belter the chance Germany will lose lier shirt. Tntlrert, if some ireople like the I Poles, the Belgians, the Czechs and the French hart their way,-Germany would be flayet! alive. The longer Hitler fights, tlie stlffcr his peace terms will be. Already they are likely tp be very stiff. NOBODY WANTS THE. G Kit MANS . Representatives here of Poland, France, Holland anil other victimized countries will want some of what is now German soil but no Germans. They will make strong argument, Jn logic nnil justice. 'lhat would mean large Interchanges of 'population, it would ring Germany with nations all strengthened by addition of soil to which some have excellent claims, -some not, mid by more homogeneous populations. Germans and Poles, for instance, would be Interchanged as they should have been and were not, after iflis. The Turks and Greeks Imve shown how this Is practicable and makes bad neighbors good CUES, More Germans would be crammed Into less space—the Czechs want the Stulelcnland but without lire Sudeten Germans who now inhabit it. Few nations arc likely to welcome Germans as Immigrants. But belief grows that tlie Gorman.? will still be able to make » good living if they try. For Instance, converting some of their enormous and unproductive state-owned forests to farmland and by tilling their soil so well Hint it produces as inucli as does Holland's \tjitch Is only 7Q per cent as good tmt nevertheless 1 Is made to -outstrip Germany's. Germany will have to farm more if tlie military men have their Way. The*, would strip her not alone of Army, Nnvy and Luftwaffe-^espe^ daily Luftwaffe-out of the means to build them up again. All machines, tools and factories mewl to make arms or anything like arms would be wrecked. j 20 YKAHS OF KE-KIH1CATION To insure that Germany will keep the pence In future will mean disarmament and re-education. Thai will probably take 20 years under an Allied armed guard—also a lot of help from n large Allied civilian reconstruction organization. Those views are not all official nor officially adopted but they may well prevail. Some' wcll-lnformei! Americans hold them and so do many Hussions who are very realistic and on some counts would go farther than we. As to reconstruction, some British civilians «:aii( to welcome Qer- x'an.Y again more, quickly to full partnejshlp in world endeavor V partly from what they hold to 'lie hiiiminitarinii motives, partly us a possible customer for themselves and n counter-poise'to Russia, The military men say there can be no pence with Gormivn'y if bg- fore she is cleansed of Nazis and re-educated she is allowed to have a gun or an airplane. Or any other weapon or means to produce it, Later, perhaps 20 years later, she may uc gradually permitted' to build up a small police force bul under supervision far closer" than after 1918. Whether the military men who are realists will win put avey politicians tmd propagandists already being; hear;! remains to be seen. Army Unveils Secret Weapon On French Beach-'The Weasel By KAI.1'1!

It is powered by a Studebaker 6-cylinder automobile motor with six forward speeds. It is guided, like a tank, with two levers instead of a steering wheel. The weasel showed in Its ies'ts licre that it is almost, perfectly balanced, with or without a load, and can climb a 45 degree slope without overturning.
