Mrs. Irene Dougherty of Pittsburgh will be a PEACE OR WAR CHIEF QUESTION AMONG BRITISH Continued from Pago One. day's decrees making Austria German. Interest centered on the" revelations to be made in Commons. After the cabinet meeting, the King granted an audience to Chamberlain and received an account of the government's decisions. Members planned to force a full debate during which Liberals and Labor men were ready to attack the government a 1 !"having bowed to the dictator powers and thus courting the danger of a debacle. The statements in Parliament were awaited- with an anxiety hardly matched even during the days of the Ethiopian crisis. Then it was Italy, 500 miles away by air, that was the potential enemy, and the prospective theatre of war was the Mediterranean; now it was Germany--powerful Germany, 200 miles away across the Dover straits and Belgium, and long agp the present Earl Baldwin, us Chamberlain's predecessor, had warned the country that its frontier was now the Rhine. Actually it was Czechoslovakia that Britons wondered about, not Austria. The Austrian absorption-"the rape of Austria," angry Liberals and Laborites called it--was an accomplished fact. British and French protests had been rejected summarily by Germany. The question was, briefly: Would Czechoslovakia, France's ally, become a sort of Belgium of a new European war and would Britain declare formally her intention to stand by France if she aided Czechoslovakia against an aggressor? facilities for munitions along Route 40, between Cumberland and Brownsville, and most likely in the mountains. The Army would construct a munitions magazine ot vast proportions. Caverns will be excavated In the mountain sides lor shells lor all military purposes. The big Army munitions stores arc in process of removal from the Atlantic coast, where they would be highly vulnerable In time Df war, into the Interior where they would be well guarded by nature as well as machine defense. After tho munitions storage facilities arc completed, it will require an Army defense foicc, but the size of the detail will not be determined until plans nre more advanced. The plan of the War Department, the congressman said, would not interfere with the development of commercial traffic at Conncllsville Airport. Already the Works Progress Administration, under th« project sponsored by Conncllsville Council, v;ith the cooperation of the Fayette county commissioners, has expended $682,000. There are expected to be additional "extras" which have not been provided for to date, Congressman Snydcr said, making the total outlay in excess ot $1,000,000. The Connellsville Airport will serve as a base for the Air Corps on the Army air trails from Langley Field, Va., to Washington, Dayton, Ohio, and Detroit and from Middleton, Pa., to Dayton. Its location near the foot of the mountains makes it most feasible lor the halting .of planes for refueling or rcchecklng engines while on hops about the country. It sits a sufficient distance from the mountains to en- abla heavy bombers with cargoes to gain altitude to clear them without difficulty. Tho section leased by the War Department is situated between the site of tho hangar now being erected and the point where "A" and "C" runways connect, near the taxiing strip that connects the two paved ribbons of landing and taking oft" surface, Tho administration building would go up at a point where it would sit between "C" runway «nd the proposed "B" runway, to be located between the two now built. In this structure will be facilities for 20 to 30 men of the Army Air Corps, the- congressman said. Plans for the entire program were discussed at length several months ago at n conference of city, county and district WPA officials but forma: announcement was deferred unti: definite action was taken.
