TUESDAY, MARCH 14, 1939 * summoned for a conference to de; cide what to do next in the thoroughly confused state. Appealed to Hitler Tiso appealed to Hitler for help ·gainst the Czechs, whose troops still were occupying Bratislava and other Slovak centers. Hungarians penetrated a reported 18 miles into Carpatho- Ukraine, easternmost section , of Czecho- Slovakia. · From German language '-Isles" -p-sections within the Czech part of the republic where German is the chief language---came appeals to-Hitler for "delivery from the Czech terror." · All this happened just a year after Hitler joined Austria and Germany. .. Thus llltlcr, who year after year' has surprised the world during the month of March, used this month to change the map of Europe.still further and to extend German domination ' eastward. While Czecho-Slovakia w a s convulsed with her internal crisis, German troops began to march toward her borders--ready to enforce Hitler's will by arms. They were clogging the main military roads leading from Dresden and Leipzig toward Bohemia, and from Vienna toward Bratislava and Brno. ! Jews in Bohemia and Moravia --the section of Czecho-Slovakia under domination of Prague-were asking whether t h e y had better get .out in a hurry before Hitler took charge. Quarters close to the Czech government said Hitler had asked four things from Prague: 1. That no obstruction to Slovak independence be made; 2. That Bohemia and Moravia form a customs and monetary union with Germany; 3. Complete disarmament of Czecho-SIovak military forces; 4. Introduction of Germany's : Nuernberg anil-Jewish laws. , These same quarters said Hitler had promised Tiso support for Slovak claims, for a large slice of Moravia, apparently with the object of providing the new Slovak state with some industries. The territory would include ZHn, .where. the great Bate shoe factory is located. Prepare for Expedition Meanwhile, in Germany itself, the public was being prepared for a German expedition into Bohemia and Moravia. German life, the .people were being told by press' and radio, was no longer safe in the little neighbor state. Hitler, as protector of Germans everywhere--so the argument ran .--could not stand idly by. His task was described as insuring German security. (Before Munich, the post-war Czecho-SIovak: republic w h i c h was created from the former Austro-Hungarian. e m p i r e had 54,244 square miles of territory and, 15,000,000 population. (The Munich government and subsequent adjustments g a v e Germany 10,800 square miles and 3,600,000 population; Poland 400 square miles and 241,000 population, ' and Hungary 4,495 square miles and .1,027,000 population. Third of Former Self (The republic emerged ' from this dismemberment with a.third of its territory and a third of its population gone. (Tuesday it lost 14,600 square miles and 2,450,000 population. {If Carpatho-URraine also is lost to Prague--4,206 square miles and .552,124 population--the remaining-Bohemia-Moravia area of 18,158 square miles would have a population of 6,804,876. (The Czech state would have about a third of its former area and'riot quite half its former population, . · . . (Of the three parts ot the republic, Bohemia-Moravia came from the old Austrian empire, Slovakia and Carpatho-Ukraine from the kingdom of Hungary.) The Czecho-SIovak cabinet was said to have decided on resignation at a meeting Tuesdav morning- - - MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE England, France Deny Responsibility CHAMBERLAIN WASHES HANDS Declares "Unprovoked Aggression" Has Not Occurred in Czech Land LONDON, (U.PJ--Prime Minister N e v i l l e Chamberlain publicly washed his hand of responsibility for the fresh dismemberment of Czecho-Slovakia in the house of commons Tuesday. , He said the British-French guaranty at Munich of the territorial integrity of Czecho-Slovakia was one against unprovoked aggression "and that has not taken place." Chamberlain said he had no information of the nature of the conversations Monday between Fuehrer Adolf Hitler and Josef Tiso, the new president of Slovakia, nor of the Czech government's resignation and the Slovakian declaration of independence. Attacked by Attlee Clement R. Attlee, labor leader, asked: "Is the government waiting for a fait accompli? Has the government consulted the French government, the Czech government or any government about w h a t should be done to deal with the situation?" 'I am not sure what the honorable member thinks the government should do," Chamberlain replied. It was disclosed before commons met that Britain and France were determined not to interfere." "None of Our Business" Even should nazi troops move ! n to settle the quarrel between ;he Czechs and Slovaks, informed sources indicated British Prime Minister Chamberlain would not repeat the flying trips' to central Europe he made in September. Chamberlain will be 70 years old next Saturday. "None of our business," was Lhe tone of the surprisingly unan- mous press in both London and Paris. "Purely an internal matter. We have had one war scare over the Czechs and that's enough." Foreign Secretary Viscount Halfax in a speech Monday night perhaps gave Britain's official slant when he declared some persons would have "this country a universal policeman, but governments with the lives of millions langing on their decisions must give most anxious thought to the question of intervention." On the matter, of Britain's projected guarantee of Czecho-SIovak oorders, as contained in an annex to the Munich 'accord, the pro- government Times of London concluded an editorial by finding Britain not obligated because Italy and Germany were not giving guarantees; CHRISTEN BODY IS EXHUMED Officials Await Report From Iowa City on Laboratory Analysis DECORAH--The coroners jury is awaiting a report from I o w a City on the findings from an analysis o£ the vital organs o£ Elmer Christen, 53 year old farmer of Orleans township, whose body was exhumed from the Cresco cemetery.

About six cities, ranging upward in population from 50,000, are to be selected 'for tests of the new program to distribute surplus foods through regular trade channels by a system of government issued commodity stamps. The plan received the unanimous backing Monday of the National Food and Grocery conference committee, which viewed it as a step toward government and business co-operation. Under the program as an nounced by Secretary Wallace after committee indorsement stamps which may be exchangee for food at the neighborhood gro eery store will be issued to fam ilies on relief. $3.95 Truss Sent on Free Trial 3 DIE IN AIR CRASH BRUSSELS, (#·)--A B e l g i a n plane oa the London-Brussels night service crashed in landing at Haren airport Tuesday, Mllini the crew o£ three.
