TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 12 · 1936 for the Rhineland incident he next will move into Austria and that that would mean war, for the little entente of Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia and Rumanm would not tolerate such an invasion and France would fight on the side of the little entente. 3. The French are sure they could make Germany submit ? in the end for France today is not only one of the strongest military powers in the world but possesses sufficient financial resources to bring a pressure on Germany which that nation could not survive. At home, Thursday the French figured a potential "paper army" of nearly 40,000,000 men which she believes her alliances with soviet Russia, the little entente, and Poland assure her in case of war. Before the French senate, for final action, was the Franco-Soviet mutual assistance accord, blamed by Hitler for his "necessary" watch on the Rhine. Might Prefer War. There were official hints that France might prefer a "preventive" war now, while she is prepared, rather than "carnage" with powerful "treaty breakers" two years hence. Coincidentally, French authorities claimed "other powers" would back them up, should they carry out their threat' to secede from the league of nations because of lack of support by Britain. Karlsruhe, over the German border in the Rhineland, decked its streets with garlands and swastikas and waited for der fuehrer, due for a night speech to open the March 29 plebiscite campaign. Ready for Invitation. Hitler called the plebiscite, in the shape of new relchstag elections, to get a new vote of approval from his people for his "breaking of the chains" of Locarno and Versailles. Coyly, the reich said it would not be represented at Saturday's league of nations council session, called to deal with the unilateral ...Locarno breach, but it was apparent the iiazis hoped for a last minute, formal, invitation. Then it could make a dramatic entry into the London picture.

FRENCH SENATE RATIFIES FRANCO-SOVIET TREATY. PARIS, Cff)--The French senate ratified the Franco-Soviet pact oi mutual assistance by an overwhelming majority Thursday night. The treaty already had been ratified by the chamber of deputies. The vote in the senate was 233 to 52.

Ogden was to have been graduated from the Independence high school in June.
