TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 11 1936 balance of power in western Europe was easily apparent. Reichafuehrer Hitler's action in moving troops into the long-demilitarized borderland between France and Germany was covered by mill' tary moves on the part of France. Now, two armies face each other across the narrow strip of territory ar.d statesmen of Europe feared that some part of hatred may flare and touch off the huge powder keg of war potentialities. Treaty Denounced. Germany's action constituted a unilateral denouncement of the Locarno treaty which was originally formulated by Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy and Belgium. The Locarno pact provided that Germany, France and Belgium would not transgress on each other's territory and Great Britain and Italy stood "by as guarantors that, in case of such transgression, military aid would be given to the aggrieved nation. Under the Versailles treaty, which ended the World war, Germany was barred from keeping; military forces in the Rhineland. although the Rhineland is a part of Germany. Reichsfuehrer Hitler, who already has denounced most of the military c-auses of the Versailles treaty, made a clean sweep of these clauses when he put his fores back in the area. Italy Must Wait. At Rome, an Italian official declared Italy cannot support Great Britain and France in Locarno discussions as long as war sanctions continued against the fascist nation for its aggression in East Africa. Also, this official asserted, any negotiations for peace in the Italo- Ethiopian war must await the outcome of the Locarno conferences. Five nations of the little and Balkan ententes, whose representatives met at Geneva, decided to support the French protest against Germany's action along the Rhine. They were Czechoslovakia, Rumania, Yugoslavia, Greece and Turkey. A strong pledge of support "for any collective action" was delivered to the Belgian chamber of deputies by Premier Paul van Zeeland. He pledged his nation's allegiance to Locarno "until it is replaced by another accord." EDEN AND HALIFAX IN REPORT TO CABINET. (Copyright, 1938, by The Amodatsd Press.)
