For time, circumstances and his inol.li- .er have all been working in his -favor. Time has softened the war hat- teds stirred up against the imperial Hapsburg fnmily. Circumstances now have made Austria a more fertile ground for royalistic maneuvers than any time since the revolution of 1918. ; His mother, the ex-Empress Zita, lias been pulling the strings with /'masterly" hand. '. Zita will go down In history as one of the most striking figures of these times. Born a Eouibon- Parma, her grandfather, (he Duke of Parma murdered and her father driven out when he was eleven, 'she grew up in the hard school of poverty and adversity, soared to dazzling heights for n brief time as Austrian Empress, and once more faces poverty nnd ndmMly.

If Otto were ever to become a king, Hungary would be his best bet. Hungary called Itself a kingdom with Admiral Horthy as chair-warmer with the title of Regent. Hungarian custom, 'the laws called the Pragmatic Sanctions, nnd Otto's own descent seemed to make him King. of Hungary although uncrowned. Austria seemed lio|)cless from his standpoint, because not only was It a republic, but in 1919 laws were passed taking away the Hapsburg estates and in 1321 other laws were passed barring Haps- ourgs from being rulers of the little country. But the year 1933 has seen the •Hitlerites trying by savage methods to force Austria Into becoming part of a Nazi Germany.
