Is Gravest Crisis Since Days of 1914 Continued from Page One. barked upon a policy of rapprochement with the dictorial countries. Hitler's action deals a body blow to Chamberlain's scheme for continental appeasement. The reaction in Britain . as evidenced by the press is so bitter that Chamberlain will scarcely dare, even if he is so inclined after Hitler's defiance of Britain's protests against the ending of Austrian independence, to proceed with his "deal with dictators" policy. Thus Britain and France are certain to be impelled to even closer cooperation in the diplomatic field. Mussolini must bo chagrined by Austrian developments. It is highly significant that the Italian press, always under the thumb of the government, for the first time since the formation of the Berlin-Rome axis, failed today to fully and promptly endorse any international diolomatlc action undertaken % by Germany. Well-informed sources in Rome detected other evidences that Mussolini had been takn aback by Hitler's aggressive policy toward Austria. In view of this development, it's in the cards that Chamberlain will now make a strong effort to break the Berlin-Rome axis or badly bend it by seeking a broad rapprochement with Mussolini. There, the next few months are likely to witness efforts toward a general reshuffling of diplomatic line-ups as an outgrowth of Hitler's Austrian coup. Despite the fact that Britain and France have, five separate times, reaffirmed the necessity of preserving Austria's independence and Integrity, neither will go further than protests and peaceful pressure in trying to save the country from Nazification.

People Dazed, Independence Entirely Gone Continued from Page One. Austrian border towns watched the crack motorized battalions cross. 'Nazis manned church bells and pealed a welcome to their "brother German" comrades. The first German tanks arrived at Salsburg by rail. It was understood that thousands of members of the "Austrian Legion," the 30,000 Nazis who fled to Germany after the bloody putsch of 1934, had returned to their provincial caitals In motor busses during, the night. So sudden and dramatic had been the Nazi coup; so conflicting were the "official" reports that most people were hardly aware what had happened--except that overnight Austria had become a Nazi state, the vassal of Germany. Nobody knew whether Austria had an actually constituted government or not. But there was little reason to care--the Nazis were supreme; a pro-Nn:i" was in command of the army: Nazi sources announced that Hclnrich Himmler, chief bf the German seslapo, the secret police', and a corps ot high aides had arrived to "aid" the new government. Nazi anthems blared out over the government radio today; two newspapers failed to appear--censored, every one believed--and the Catholic Reichs- post appeared with half its front page blanked by censors. .

D A Y A T C A P I T A L A S I N T E R P R E T E D BY DAVID LAWRENCE Continued from Page Four, ad been intimately concerned solely y reason of his public position. It vas of little consequence that flnan- ial objections were met by announc- ng that the money earned would be evoted to charity. The publication f such a book in such circumstances arrcd upon the sense of propriety, or it was the circumstance that the vriter was prime minister of Great Iritain which gave the writing its ilgh value in the eyes of those who fid for the serial rights." The Pall Mall Gazette said: "Lloyd Jcorge's malign destiny once more ins led him into that debatable land vherc public interests and private Inance become undesirably en- angled. When he. contracted for o arge sum to write his memoirs while n office, he took stops which jarred cverely upon his countrymen's sense sf the proprieties. The public ventilation ot such ssues is very unpleasant and this dispute is only one of many reasons vhy politicians should abandon their unseemly race to turn their public experience into copy. Such a dispute does not increase the credit of British itatcsmanship in other countries." The London Herald ridiculed Lloyd 3eorgc's pica that he was a poor man who had to write his memoirs o make a living after he lost the premiership. It pointed out that Andrew Carnegie had left him a life -innuity of 510,000. Thus ends the amazing parallel between American and British ex- jericnce so far as press comment is concerned, but the incident proves hat Anglo-Saxon peoples do not react very much differently toward he proprieties of an office of trust, and especially when it is the highest elective offtce within the gift of the cople in a democracy.
