AldANSAS, SATURDAY, OfrromoiTai" School Bcmd'ffttl Share In Community Fluid To Bo Raised understood loclay. Reports were circulated that* German-Italian consul tn tions, handled by ujtier and Mussolini personally, would' be started tomorrow. But it was believed, that Hitler Intended to study reports of his ambassadors at Rome, Moscow and Amkara, Turkey, before he Initialed formal negotiations with Mussolini. j Whatever else may happen, Nazis said, it; \vas certain lhat both Germany and Italy would press Turkey for a clarification of hei attitude. Hitler conferred for several houri yesterday with Baron Franz Von Pa pen, his ambassador (o Turkey who hurried home as soon as it was made known that the threc- poivcr pact -'Ould be signed. It was expected v that Papcu woftlcl start back to Turkey within a few days, with a"number of specific questions di-nfted by Hitler for the Turkish government. Hans Georg Von Mackensen, ambassador to Rome, was expected lo come here to report to Hitler and It was believed that Count Fredrich Von Dei- Scliulcnburg might come from Moscow. Nazis disclosed, however, that intensive diplomatic exchange,'; already were being conducted with Italy and Russia on the potentialities of the Tiirkish-BrUlsh-French pact. Whatever the eventual effects of tile pact, it had certainly angered Nazis thoroughly. Some Nazis said that,the pact was aimed against Germany and Italy, some that it against Italy and Russia. Curiously', however, the same sources that showed frankly their resentment at the treaty, continued today to try to minimize its importance to the a'lios. The authoritative diplomatic and polilical correspondence said thai llie western powers would gain pothing,from the pact except (lie Liner Docks With.73 On Board Hurt .

"Previous utterances by all partners, however, had revealed clearly against whom possible military cooperation in (he Mediterranean was - actually directed. So far as Great Britain Is concerned the main point of this treaty is directed against Germany. Britain lias thereby turned Turkey against the opinion of the founder of her slate (the late Kemal Ataturk) in favor of the independent status of Ihe new Turkey—a new -Turkey regarding which he emphasized Ihe importance of friendly reJn- lions with Germany," The . .well-informed 'Hamburger Fremdenblatt argued that the treaty was really directed ngniiisli Ilaly nnd Russia. j Stock Prices NEW YORK, Oct. 21 (UP)The storm battered United Stales liner, President Harding, docket today with 73 of Die passengers and crew injured — 27 of them stretcher ambulance cases.
