J. T, Coslcn was reelected president of the group wllli A. Welby Young, as secretary. this that Ht.ller has kept Europe worried. For statesemn fear that, If he has done everything inside Germany he said lie would do, so likewise will he attempt to do outside Germany everything he said he would do. His apologists say this is a false fear. They say that his book was written when he was ill prison after his abortive putsch and that, as a man in power, he will not attempt to accomplish in Europe what, as a man in prison and with no responsibility, lie dreamed of accomplishing. "My Battle" The essence of his thought on foreign affairs set fort!) in his book Is: Germany must build a strong army nnd air force. Then she will not only be considered worthy of being an ally by other strong countries, but will be listened to with respect in the comity of nations. He outlined his foreign policy as a steadfast wooing of England, cither to get her as an ally or to win her benevolent neutrality. That secured, there should be the destruction of the. "eterral enemy," Prance. That done, Germany should turn eastwards and take what territory she wanted and needed. Then In a hundred years Urns Germany would be a nation of 300,000,000 living on its own soil. That policy, of course, means taking Russian territory and explains his violent attacks on that country. ' Europe sees in everything he has done one step after another in the eign policy. . • Boldly lie made a scrap of paper of the Versailles Treaty and he got away with it. Builds Up Might In March, 1935, he let it be known that, regardless of the Versailles Treaty, he was" creating a military air force, On March is he announced he would Introduce con- scrltplon, something the treaty, forbade. He said Germany would proceed to have an army of. 600,000. The treaty limited It to .100,000. He said it would have tanks,,heavy nr- llllery and other things the trcaly forbade. The English,' like the French, protested. Then.In June, 1935, Ihe English gave the French a surprise party. They had okayed Hitler's tearing up of the Versailles .Treaty by signing a naval agreement with him. Germany promised to hold its fleet down to 35 per cent of England's. Later still he tore up the last vestiges of the treaty, because he marched his Iroops Into the demilitarized region of the Rhineland and also said that no longer would, there be International control of tra c on rivers which now through Germany as well as other lands. And. In recent weeks, the Nazis have had the daring lo go almost openly lo the aid of fellow Fascists in revolt-torn Spain. Freedom Lost Today the German Is without Plane Ousls nog Teams SAN FRANCISCO. (UP)—In the same manner that the automobile replaced the horse In the United Slates, the airplane is replacing dog teams of Alaska, according to Victor Ross, Alaskan aviator. He already has more than 300,000 miles of flying in the frozen north to his credit. liberty, as It Is understood in America. He is working for low wages and, cannot strike. He Is heavily taxed. He is on short rations as to many articles of food, because the money is being spent in the feverish haste to complete the army, navy all air force plans. He Is told that it is better to do without butter than without guns. But the 'German has been given back his old pride. He has lost his Inferiority complex. For that, If for nothing else, he will, be able to thank Hitler on January 30. i WE HAVE SECURED THE SERVICES OF AN EXPERIENCED RADIO MECHANIC who will guarantee to repaii your radio to first class condition.
