For weeks, Bulgaria has wavered. The Allies issued an ultimatum. Get nut of the they said, or afford to lose any ' of Bulgaria's take the consequences. Germany issued an ultimatum, stay,in the war, it said, or lake Ihe consequences. Russia, not at war with f Bulgaria, also issued an ultimatum. Turn on the Germans, it said, or we'll forget we're your Slavic brothers. Hitler Movcil First Germany didn't wait for Bulgaria lo take ils pick. Hitler waved in his soldiers. For. small as Bulgaria Is, Ihc Germans can't afford lo lose it. For one thing, if It had been allowed to stray from the fold, dissatisfied satcllllcs-. might have wandered oul with It. For another, Bulgaria lies only 225 miles across Ihc Black Sea from Russia. A-Soviet assault on its coast might have out-flanked German positions in Romania. And for a third thing, Bulgaria furnishes the Reich with n trickle of war materials. And Germany, which has been losing resources fast, can't more. About four-fifths frugal, hard-working people', eke out a living on land holdings ranging fror.t^one .(o six acres. •.Their leading 'vrnp ' is tobacco, a "''*in\ist"r'ainone s'lSfvice -:iian' 3 • cup-, plies. • -Bulgarian, mulberrj' trees support a silk worm industry whose output serves, to make parachutes, . fumpowder. bags : .ahct surgical thread. Animal hides go into the German boots which have trampled all Europe. Not only that, Bulgaria supplies ^the , Wchrmacht wilh food stuffs, W grapes, plums, strawberries, beets, eggs, poultry, dairy products and pork. Some of ils fields bear flax and cotlou fiber, others sunflower seeds for oil. Nazis Necrt minerals Bulgaria's mineral output, although relatively small, is vital lo the Reich. Before Ihe war, it supplied -15 per cent of Germany's chrome needs. Now that Turkey has choked off its chrome supplies, this metal, used to harden armor plate, rifle linings nnd high speed cutting tools, is doubly valuable to the Germans. Bulgaria produces another slecl-hardener, manganese also Important to the 1 Nazis since their loss of the Nikopol mines in Russia. But Hie Bulgars, weak ns they arc, have given Hitler a new experience. He invited its regency council lo consult with him at hi-i mountain retreat. And the council said, no. That's (he first lima on record lhal any satellite officials /g| have ever turned down an invi- ™ liitton by the would-be world con- querer. But a long parade of other European figures who accepted such invitations must have risen before the eyes of tlie covmcilmen. There was Chancellor Schuschnigg of Austria, compelled to open the way for a series of events which landed his homeland in Germany's hands and himself in a conccntrn- lv>n camp. There was President Hnclu nf Czechoslovakia, summoned to Berlin in Ihc dead of night, subjected to -so much pressure that he signed away his nation's freedom and had lo be placed under the care of a doctor. And, of course, Mussolini, who threw in his lot with the Germans, anci Prince Paul of Yugoslavia, who followed suit. Tlv:n. Admiral Horthy of Hungary, who was held prisoner in Germany while his country was taken away from him. And, finally, the Bui- gars must have remembered tlwir late king Boris, killed while returning from a conference in which he refused Hitler's demands. The councilmcn figured It was too late to save their country, but they might as well save themselves. Bulgaria has fought In Ihrce wars since 1002 and lost every ,j|/ine. The Allies, and a growing w partisan army inside Bulgaria Itself, are out to keep lhat record clean. Northern France Again Battered By Our Raiders Stockholm Says Kiel Practically Useless As A Naval Base LONDON. May 20.
