By United Press Adolf Hitler, acting through his agent, Otfo 1 . Abetz, today moved forcibly into the dramatic but-stilT obscure French situation. His first achievement was " trfe release 1 from confinement of Pierrp, Laval, ousted French vice-premier and lending exponent of Franco- , German "collaboration", possibly- even to the extent of a French'" declaration of war on Great Britain. - ; . r ~ Laval's release was accompanied by a revealing Nazi statement ^in Berlin which expressed "extraordinary interest" in Laval's dismissal nncl a determination to exain-" me the motives behind the weekend; drama In which he 'was sue- 1 ccoded ns foreign minister by Pierre Eticune Flandin. ',' - : . Nnzls said that the events raised" the question whether or not France will "continue the European policy." The "European policy" is a German term employed to describe Hitler's idea of a Nazi-dominated European order. Laval had bent his efforts toward obtaining 'for • Prance a major position in that order nnd the German statement seemed to hint at doubts that the Vichy government, minus Laval would continue this policy. Flandin, laval's successor as fort eign minister, was confined to bed by grippe. Abetz had paid a brief courtesy visit to him on his arrival from Paris last night, Petain arranged a formal luncheon for Abetz. He had planned a' state, visit but Abetz wants to leave Ihis afternoon so he could arrive in- Paris' tonight. - : (This -also- 1 would "indicate a-de- 1 Bree , 0 f urgency. irUAbetz's • mission; • ns he • "would naturally "report " to Adolf Hitler from occupied Paris and not from non-occupied Vichy.) It was hoped that Flandin could talk at greater length with Abetz today, as part of the German envoy's mlsslo hwns to effect personal contact with Flandin and" other key men who will not administer French foreign policy 'under -retain. ^ , . Abetz was the first official German-visitor to Vichy since Petain and Hitler, at their conference, at Montoire, discussed relations. Since then •all negotiations had been conducted at Paris by Laval arid Fernand de Brinon, French env6y to Paris. Brinon accompanied Abetz to Vichy. , Well informed quarters forecast that ns the result of the visit, Petain might speed up his plans to make his headquarters as chief of state at "Versailles, outside Paris. If Petain moved to Versailles he would have a secondary headquai> ters here, where''the foreign office and other .departments,- and the diplomatic corps, would remain. Abetz came to Vichy with a staff ,of seven experts and a guard of nine soldiers, who during the motor drive through . non-occupied France stood at the v alerc hi motor cars, preceding, and following Abetz's car, with their tommy- guns .at .the ready. ————~_^__^^___ -i Attend Funeral Sunday For Mrs. T.
