BRITAIN U R G E D TO PREPARE FOR POSSIBLE WAR Continued Irom Page One. since the World War, and which had hailed the Munich agreement as a triumph, joined the criticisms of ChamberJain and his government todav -\vjth bitter denunciations ot Hitler. This time they saw mo ray of light ·In iv.hat they--and apparently the British government--saw as a work of absolute' aggression and conquest. The Daily Mail blamed the -foreign ofEce for ignoiance of Hitler's plans. "The -machine-like advance of the German aimy disposed of the aTasurd idea that Hitler's -move -was planned suddenly," the Daily Mail said. "That maneuver obviously had been planned lor weeks if not for months. Did the'foreign office know nothing about it? If not why -not' The Dnal disintegration of Czechoslovakia was almost inevitable. The shock lies in the swift and brutal manner of its end. One thing and one only will serve Britain--her own armed might." ' The Daily Telegraph, a supporter of the government as is the Daily Mail, and regarded as particularly close to the foie;gn office, criticised Chamberiaind" and his foreign "min- iste"r, Viscount Halifax, directly for their statements yesterday on the Czech triumph. 1 "A monstrous outrage is the mildest term that ran be applied to yesterday's events in Central Europe," said the Daily Telegraph. "The tale of them sent a thrilf of horror and indignation throughout the civilized world. Germany had desmirched her name with infamy which will live as long: as the Nazi regime lasts. "It must be accounted a deplorable oversight that not a word of sympathy for the Czechs was found by spokesmen (Chamberlain and Halifax) for the government in yesterday's debates. "There .were curious understatements in the prime minister's statement. He saw no reason to convict Hitler of wilful bad faith. He said that Hitler's actions were 'not in accordance -with the spirit of Munich.' "That, surely, is 'pushing understatement to the point of irony. Yesterday's proceedings were not merely not in accord with the spirit of Munich. They reduced Munich to complete and utter mocker} The ipint. of Munich is dead and buried. For who can hope to appease a boa- ronstrictor'' "With that in mind the British Sovemment may be recommended to abate some of its sunshine talk and substitute y^t gi enter emphasis on vigilance." This was about the plainest talk lo which a conservative' prime minister :ould b^ subjected by a conservative newspaper. And this comment, from friendly papers, was the mildest. All newspapers agreed that Munich was Jead and Britain was faced by a merciless potential enemy. Conservative, liberal, labor, the newspapers denouned Germany in the most angry terms and demanded that Britain and other peace loving countries prepare to join to fight for their liberties. MRS. CHRIST KROMER Mrs. Christ Kiomer, 83 years old, a former resident ol Connellsville, died at'9:55 o'clock Wednesday morning in Punxsutawney, whei c she had resided -with her iiusbund since 1883.

In Poland, General Stanislaw Skwarczynsk;, leader if the government party, announced that Poland was ready to rely cin its, own strength to guard its frontiers. North, east, south and west of Germany, nations waited for a new move by Hitler, each believing that it might come in any direction and at any time. When Hitler seized the Sudeten area of Czechoslovakia last September by agreement with the British. French and Italian go\emments under the Munich declarations, Euiope had held hope that a policy of "appeasement" might be in prospect. There was no such hope today. All interest centered on Hitler. He arrived last night in the midst of a heavy snow storm, just as the 8 o'clock curfew imposed by German military authorities, drove his new subjects indoors for the night. Battalions of his own bodyguard troops, sworn to die befoie he does, accompanied him, and 800 membeis of the dreaded Nazi Gestapo, the secret police, had preceded him. Even before his arrival, and the curfew, the Czechs had shown what they thought of his conquest. The people of Prague had hissed and booed his soldiers and demanded that they go back to Germany.
