Yes Indeed-i at Stevensons Brown SLACKS Report Unrest Among Axis Satellites By GLENN BABB News Interpreter Once more the reports of sag- Jing morale, war weariness and growing unrest in the satellite members of Hitler's Europe are multiplying. From Switzerland and Sweden come stories of incipient revolt in Rumania and of Hungary's anxieties over the future of the war. The Rome radio describes unusual measures to bolster the spirit of the people. Finland is giving fresh evidence of her unwillingness to be considered in the category of German's minions.

When the German power began to break up in 1918 it was the satelite states that went first Turkey, Bulgaria and finally Austria. This war, of course, does not always follow the par tern of the last and it is danccrous to base predictions on 1918. Moreover, neither Rumania nor any of the others has dropped out yet. much as they might like to and ;t is certain that Hitler, who knows his 1918 history as well as any man. has taken measures to nreyenl defections or to minimize |hc,r effects if (hoy muEt comc .
