EIGHT It Would Take A War To Decide Top Dog In Europe Today THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MIX, THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 1939. r ly Th« AP F««tur« Servlct London—If this Septembe bring* another crisis, ,as <lid las September, experts say. Britain and France will be "infinitely bettei prepared" in every field—excep tlie strategical. Last year Britain and France were acutely coascvous of their weaknesses in the air and on the home space bought at Munich, Britain and France have- made tremendous strides in remedyin their deficiencies. And they have signed up allies: Poland, Rumania, Greece and Turkey. . The price of the breathing spell —the sacrifice of Czechoslovakia to Hitler—gave th* nazis an important strategic position and, say experts, the Allies may have lost strategically by letting Mus- solini occupy Albania. The situation a year ago seemed to favor the fascists. Now it seems about a toss-up. It would take a war to decide who's who in Europe. Here's how Great Britain 'and France have evened things- F England's W«rl>ird« Britain alone, spending nearly 10 million dollars a week, has stepped up war plane production to SOO monthly—reportedly, a larger production than Germany's France lias has increased her output from mder 40 to 200 planes monthly. Between them they are rapidly eat- ng into the Germans, believed to s turning out eight or nine thous nd planes annually. British Anti-Aircraft Crew Britons are assured there'll be nonoe of the desperate improvising which characterized the llth hour before; 50 million people have gas tr.asks now. A volunteer army of 1.250,000'stands ready to assist in air raids. There' are shelters and evacuation schemes for millions. France is concentrating on a plan o evacuate three million' inhabi- ants from Paris and to shift .000,000 other persons. Trench Troop* In Britain expects' to have her largest peacetime army in history by Sep. tember. Composed of more than a million regulars, territorials (home guard) and—unprecedentedly—con- scripts, it will be more than double the size of last'September's army. Women's auxiliary battalions are being formed to handle non- combative work behind the lines. France, meanwhile, keeps strengthening her army. Gun* on H. M. S. Repulse Britannia considers that she "will rules the waves even without -the assistance of the competent French fleet She is not afraid of the submarine menace, is confident she could maintain her supply lines, hopes a blockade -would prove as lethal a weapon as before. She is spending nearly 15 million dollars a week on 200 new warships of various types which will bolster the 300 already in operation. London Citizen Tries Machine Gnn Britain and France are both, bet ter organized for a complicated modern' war. Morale is considerab ly higher in both countries. Ii. France, Daladier won unprecedent ed decree powers from the Cham ber of Deputies enabling him to lengthen the working week and whip the nation into a state of em ergency. The British and French have developed a war psychology and are resigned and ready. PLAN RIFLE MEET. _ WEYBtJRN, Bask.
