LOCHNER BERLIN, Jan. 81. Diplomats saw hope today for peace in Europe in the assurance of Adolf Hitler there would be no cause for Avar in his pursuit of the great Nazi objective, return of war lost colonies. They are not sure, however, of the full meaning of tho chancellor's firm promise of aid to Italy if she were involved in an ideological war and his declaration: "National socialist Germany and fascist Italy are strong enough to safeguard peace against everyone; and to end resolutely and successfully any conflict which irresponsible elements lightly start." Charting the course of Nazidom for 1939 In a two hour and 17- minute speech before the relschsag last night, the chancellor daclared his own belief In a "long peace." He set increasing world trade, to Include Latin American countries, as a pressing need to bolster Gorman economy while the campaign for colonies is carried on, and advised the United States not to Interfere. Devoting much of tho address tartlng his seventh year in power to the economic need for Germany's 80,000,000 people, the chancellor hinted the colonial Issue would be handled by negotiation, Only Want Colonies "Germany has not ten- torlal demands against " England and France apart from that for tho return of our colonies," he said. "While tho solution of this question would contribute greatly to tho pacification of the world, it is in no sense a problem whlclt could cause a war." He did not mention the Italian agitation for colonial concesslonse from France.

He pledged Germany to pursue with increasing energy a place in world trade to meet the "uttermost need a nation can meet, namely, the need for its dally bread." Emphasizing that business relations with South and Central America "concern nobody but therrt and ourselves" he charged that relations with the United States are "suffering from campaign of defamation" by unfriendly Interests on the "pretense that Germany threatens American Indo- pondenco and freedom." Belief Misplaced "We all believe, however," the Chancellor added, "that this does not reflect the will of millions of American citizens who, despite all that Is said to the contrary by a gigantic. Jewish-capitalistic propaganda through the press, tho radio and.the films, cannot fail to realize that there Is not one word of truth In all these assertions." The Jewish question, Hitler continued, should be solved and "the sooner the better," for Europe "cannot settle down until the Jewish question Is cleared up." Should "international Jewish, fl- POLL TAX PAYMENTS EXPECTED TO PASS SIX THOUSAND MARK County and city tax collection offices Wednesday reported a larger poll tax payment at the final date than they had anticipated seeral days ago.
