SCHUSCHNIGG DEFIES NAZI DICTATORSHIP Continued from Page One. and somewhat bewildered, were expected to register thl» week-end, by ncans of demonstrations--In defiance of a ban of their own Nazi minister of Interior--their protest the I chancellor's vigorous speech to the/ federal diet and his ringing, defiant, Anal words: 'Until death the red-while-red, the banner of our belover fatherland, Austria!" ' Newspaper headlines s h o w e d plainly the popular feeling. Crammed into the lines of type was jubilance: 'Austria, Frco and Independent!" "Austria Remains Free and Independent," "A Statesman H a s Spoken," "Bcrchtesgoden: a Monument to Peace," "Schuschnlgg -on German Pence," "Now There Will Be Peace." Now the country awaited the reaction of its own Nazis and the Nazis oC Germany, reported themselves to have been surprised and unnoycd at the firm tone which Schucchnlgg took in a speech regarded by non- Nails of Austria ns masterful and historic. Schuschnigg had gone on record as determined that Austria's independence and Christian state foundations should be defended to the death. It was admitted, In view of the speech, that the dangers to be feared had been exaggerated by an over- strung, wnr-«cnrcd world. Schusch- g and many persons of the Dnn- ublan basin generally had been inclined to believe the Fuehrer Adolf Hitler could be trusted not to use armed force against Austria. Yet .·in avalanche of rumor had buried this fact In view of the strong nature of Schuschnlgg's speech, however, and plain signs of Nazi resentment, it was realized everywhere 'that the repercussions of the chancellor's address might be wide. Germany has a powerful trade weapon as n reserve in event that Nazis regarded the government here as recalcitrant or uncooperative. Economic difficulties have been for years a basic weakness in dismembered Austria, n heart without a body. This was evident in the undertones of Schus- chnlgg's speech yesterday, but he could not ipctik too plainly because his Immediate job was to emphasize his, and the country's diplomatic success at the Derchtesgndcn negotiations with Hitler. Typical newspaper comment today showed the reaction to the speech: Werner Zcitung (official government gazette)--The speech was equivalent to a declaration by the whole people. Austria must remain Austrian. CARD PARTY Monday, Feb. 28th m. John's Soclnl Hnll, Wot Side. Auspices Rosary Society ADMISSION 35c Promptly 8:30 V. jr.
