FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1938 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS. PAGE STIFFENING US "'Save Our Jobs 5 Tiny Nation Socks To Close Military Door Between France, Germany BY MII.TON NEA Service Slall' Correspondent I.ONnON, Feb. 4.--Llttle Switzerland, long famed for her neutral stand in international politics, usl luis become infected by the r • jitters" which plague ito ivst or Euioix?. Time was when the Swiss did nol spend much money on a defensive army. Lacking in iminy natural riches, there was small reason why anybody should covet their mountainous territory, lie- sides they hud in Geneva the seal of the League of Nations. But the Sv,'iss have been doiiis some serious thinking recently. In the World War, Belgium was invaded by the Germans, .so as to ninke n surprise attack upon I'Vaiice. Not so long ago Belgium withdrew from any military alli- unce with France and outre more declared herself neutral. Hitler's Geruiany al once recognized Belgium us n neutral. This means LI promise tlial, if that next war happens, German troops will not once more seek to cross throuuh Belgium territory. Germans Would Gain Most By Neutrality Violation The French-German frontier has been made almost impregnable by the famous Maginot line of lorti- • fryntions.. But the frontier between I Vrancc and Switzerland is not thus L'lortifled. r '\ Weighing up the possibilities, in | of 'a Franco-German conflict, French violation of Swiss territory is highly improbable. Once through Switzerland, French troops would be confronted by Ihe Rhine and the hills and thick trees of the Black Forest and would be far away from any real German objectives. But a German thrust through Switzerland would flank the Maginot line, avoid the Vosges mountains, bring the invaders into the. basin of the Saone river and j threaten the great city of Lyons i and important railway lines to! that part of France which lies on the Mediterranean. In crashing through Switzerland, a German army would have the advantage of avoiding most of the great Alpine ranges and taking advantage of low ground and river valleys. Army jKepjrfiinized • /On Moder ; ri^1,1 lies A jTue Swiss* are therefore rapidly ^ ir/Or-gamzing (.heir army scheme. Instead of six divisions, there will be nine, with three independent mountain brigades. Four of these divisions will watch the German Frontier, one being based near Lake Constance and three near the Rhine. Two will watch the Jura mountain frontier, thus keeping an eye on France. Two divisions will be a reserve based on Berne and Lucerne and ready to march in liny direction. The. ninth division will garrison the St. Golhard fortifications and a mountain brigade will be an oul[>ost down Itil\ way, in the Ticino. One mountain brigade will cover the Simplon tunnel and another the St. Mamice formications which are design ed to block the Rhone valley near Lake Geneva. Money has been spent by the Swiss in increasing the artillery mm. Each division will have a company of nine guns 1 let anti-tank purposes. Each div\ Wo n wi|l. also have light tnnks. The cavalry brigades are being al most completely motorized, having machine guns, anti-tank guns and armored, cars. The air force Is to be increased to 300 fast planes of Swiss manufacture and design. In all strategic points in the mountains nnd hills there are being built observation and listening posts as well as nests for antiaircraft nnd anti-tank guns. Near the Rhiue frontier, in the passes through the Jura mountains nnd in the Alps on the southern border, chains of small fortified works are being constructed. To man these. Swiss citizens, living in their Immediate neighborhood, arc being specially trained as frontier defense brigades so that they can be mobilized within a few hours They will have light artillery, machine guns and anti-tank artillery. Defenses Rumored Defensive devices that- are nol officially reported, but rumored, nre: Devices whereby, when necessary any bridge in Switzerland may be Instantly blown up by electricity. Iron gates, let into all main roads, which can be lifted by machinery in front of an invading army, blocking the path of armored cars nnd even of light tanks.
