American -Born Notility Lead "Be Kind To Germany" Movement 11Y MILTON BRONNER NEA Service Staff Correspondent LONDON. Jan. 5.— Three asters do not make a very sizeable bouquet, but three Astors, when they arc Lord Astor, Lady Nancy Astor and Major John Jacob Aslor, make quite a formidable bunch when they lire working on the platform— "Be kind to Germany." And, of course, the piquant thing Is that this powerful trio working thus In Britain as Britons arc njl Americans by blood and birth. Lady Nancy Astor lias n platform In the House of Commons In which she was the first woman to take a seat. Lord Astor can speak in the HOIKS of Lords, but his most powerful platform is day newspaper. Major Astor's plal- hls Observer, a big London Sun- form Is, of course, the "Thunder- er," The Times of London. Lady Astor, .so far, hns not mado lerself very vocal, though she did scold American Jews about their boycott of Nazi Germany. into has especially gotten him trouble us a controversialist. The Times has Dcen Doinbm-dccl with letters liom eminent Englishmen «'lio oppose Lord Aster's thesis. These men nil cull attention to the fact that Hitler's book, unexpurgatcd by a single bitter paragraph, lias been made the German Bible and still sells In Its hundreds many. of thousands in Ger- Major Astor's Times, which has run till these letters by Lord Astor nnd his opponents, editorially has done an exceedingly delicate Job of walking on eggs. It admits that in Britain there is nn almost universal feeling of dislike for the internal itsjxrets of Germany dictatorship. Then very cautiously it backs up Lord Astor by saying: "The truth is Ihnt Britten public opinion is probably far ahead of the government In Its conviction that a clear understanding with Germany would have conse- eniences more profound and more conductive to a stable peace than any other single object of our foreign policy." But even the Times does not Wedding Cake Remains Uncut for 17 Years NEW LONDON. Conn. <UP)—Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Packer are believers in the old ar)a?e that ".von can't eat your cake and hnve it."

BOWLING BlythWille's Newest ENTERTAINMENT Ladies - - - Reducing Is A Pleasure When You Bowl Sudbury's Playhouse Tccr Befriends Dictators Lord Astor's Observer is tlio friend nnd Incense burner to all the dletntoishlps— Gerniiin, Itnl- .n'n, Portuguese. The Observer's editor, In discussing those who do not think Hitler and Mussolini nre ;reat Rnd good men nnd who wish England to resist them, finds polite phrases for his opponents like 'worthy lunatics," "windy apostles ol crazy crusades," "frantic medley of Left, Front excitements anil Tory diehard delusions." Lord Astor himself is more polite 1 in liis phrases. Also he writes mainly for HID paper of his brother, He has become one of the most persistent of the famous writers of letters to The Times. He wants tile government to be "sensible," to be "reasonable" in Its dealings with Hitler. If Hitler 1 wants colonies, Lord Astor thinks Britain should discuss the matter with him before It is too late. Lord Astor has glossed over Germany's immense rearmament, has seemingly adopted the Nazi cry about protecting Europe from Communism, and hns pleaded that all the sharp passages In Hitler's "Meln Kampf" are to be overlooked on the score that they were written when he was in prison.
