German Press Says Al!ies Seeking to Revive Militarism r.'l? A Ml^ulf tr>"T* r^ _ . I FRANKFORT, Germany, Dec, 6-wv—The West German press accused the Western powers today of trying lo revive German militarism with n "cannon fodder" army. The newspapers claimed the West wants an army of German ^{mercenaries" as a bulwark a- <S!(ainst the Russians. But nobody h a s asked t h e Germans whether they want an army, the newspapers said, contending that the German people are overwhelmingly opposed to German rearmament. Although Wester allied officials have announced publicly there are no present plans for rebuilding a German army, persistent reports have circulated that Western military leaders favor such a step. Yesterday, a sixikesman for West German Chancellor (Pre- mier) Konrad Adenauer said the Bonn government would agree mirier certain circumstances to form an army. But the spokesman declared the West German Republic was not taking the initiative in proposing siicfi a military move. The spokesman said Adenauer was "fundamentally" against German rearmament because she needs her whole power for civilian reconstruction. He added that if the Western Allies insisted, however. We.slern Germany would be willing to |. Blse all( | n,.,^. equipped by the United Stales to serve as part of a European army under a combined European command. Commenting on recent German press reactions, the U.S High Commission's press branch reported: " Thc German press comes to the sad conclusion that while Prussian militarism has died world militarism Is growing and nourishing. . . . 'The newspapers display sharp displeasure over what tliev call the nonchalance wilh which the western world takes into its calculations the use of young German manhood." said the press report. "Such a -cannon fodder' army is rejected as out of the question." The Dciitscllc Keitmig of Stuttgart said: "All suggestions to include West Germany in th c . Atlantic F'act were not made by a clique of German militarists but by foreign politicians ami professional soldiers. We do not aim at remilitarization or recruiting of a West German army of mercenaries which, in case of war, would have to sacrifice itself." Wilson Trustee Of Complamts J. .H.
