national respect as a co-guarantor of
peace."
Announced by Goebbels.
The startling announcement, com
ing just six days after Minister of
War Hermann Wilhelm Goering's
forthright admission that Germany
has an air force and intends to keep
it, was made by Minister of Propa
ganda Paul Joseph Goebbels.
Goebbels summoned foreign corre
spondents to the propaganda minis
try an hour ahead of time.
He received them in the same room
where he told the sensational story
of the shootings of Nazi leaders in
the "blood purge" of June 30, 1934.
As he read with his clear voice,
propaganda ministry and foreign of
fice attaches stood about him and
Schutz Staff el (picked Nazi guards)
men guarded the doors.
Hitler's sudden return to Berlin
from Berchtesgaden was carefully con
cealed.
He left Bavaria yesterday afternoon
and conferred far into the night in
the chancellory. The cabinet meet
ing was called for 1 p.m. The entire
scheme had been drawn up in ad
vance, so that the cabinet meeting
was comparatively short.
Cheered by Cabinet.
When Hitler announced his de
cision to put the Reich back amons
the world's big army nations, official
sources said, the cabinet rose and
cheered.
Afterward, led by Gen. Werner von
Blomberg. Reichswehr minister, the
ministers gave three "heils" for Hit
ler. and Von Blomberg briefly assured
Dcr Fuehrer of the army's loyalty.
The propaganda minister an
nounced that Hitler would remain in
Berlin for tomorrow's memorial serv
ices honoring the Reich's 2.000.000
war dead, and then will return to
Bavaria to spend another week.
The German press, which has bit
terly denounced France's new mili
tary measures during the past two
days, was quick to seize upon Der
Fuehrer's declaration as "recovery of
Germany's honor."
"Germany's Great Day."
"This is the German nation's great
day." the Korrespondenz, organ of
the Nazi party, said, declaring the
German people at last freed from "the
ignominy which has oppressed them
ior 16 years."
Echoing Hitler's protestations of
peace, the newspaper said:
"We believe that this day will her
ald a new era of peacefu* co-oper
ation among European peoples."
Observers agreed that Hitler, by
his bold and characteristic stroke,
had pulled Germany forever from the
Versailles treaty, against which all
German governments have fought for
15 years.
By the same token they believed
he had balsted the very bases for the
Simon-Hitler negotiations scheduled
for the next week end and seized in
advance the advantages England and
France had offered in return for join
ing their peace plan.
Details I'p to Blomberg.
The date of calling the first men to
the colors, the ages of the classes and
the period of service all have been left
to the discretion of Gen. von Blom
berg, subject to Hitler's approval, it
was stated.
Wild applause and singing greeted
Goebbel's reading of Hitler's appeal
and the three-paragraph decree over
the radio at the Sportsplast, where
the propaganda minister had been
scheduled to speak on another sub
ject. Everywhere in Berlin there was
rejoicing.
Thousands gathered in front of the
brightly illuminated chancellory yell
ing for Hitler and singing the na
tional anthem at the top of their
voices, while extra newspaper editions
appeared with headlines in red an
nouncing "historic hours.'
At the chancellory Kitler and Kon
itantin von Neurath. foreign minister,
received the Ambassadors of France.
England, Italy and Poland, officially
informing them of the new action and
later Goering, Von Blomberg, Von
Neurath and Goebbels were closçted
with Hitler.

GOLD BLOC CRISIS
DISCUSSED TODAY
German Issue Eclipses Finan
cial Parley at
Paris.
By the Associated Press.
PARIS. March 16.—Germany's re
Introduction of compulsory military
service tonight gave promise of over
shadowing monetary questions at to
morrow's conference of French and
Belgian statesmen.
Although the visit of Premier
George Theunis and Foreign Minister
Paul Hymans of Belgium was intended
primarily to discuss the advisability
of another conference among Europe's
gold bloc countries, it was expected
; their conversations with Premier
Pierre-Etienne Flandin would deal
largely with German rearmament.
The meeting of the Belgians and
Flandin will take place tomorrow
morning at the French statesman's
residence. It was understood the
Belgians would seek economic aid for
their country, whose currency is be
ing heavily attacked.
Fear that Belgium is about to de
■ value her currency is prevalent in
the gold bloc nations. It was dis
closed today, financial circles here as
serting Belgian industry is anxious
to cheapen the belga in order to ar
rive at financial equality with Great
Britain.
Last October in Brussels the gold
» bloc countries reached an agreement
I to seek an increase in commercial
• exchange among themselves of 10
per cent over the preceding year.
The Belgian balance of trade with
France has grown more unfavorable,
however, and Theunis and Hymans
were expected to plead that fact and
the campaign for devaluation of the
belga as reasons why France should
lend assistance.
If aid is denied and Belgium is
forced oft the gold standard one

Text of Hitler's Plea to "Safeguard World Peace"
By the Associated Press.
; BERLIN. March 16.—The text of
Reichsfuehrer Hitler's appeal to the
j German people today follows:
To the German people:
When in November, 1918, the Ger
man people, trusting in the promises
given in President Wilson's 14 points,
grounded arms after four and a half
years' honorable resistance in a war
whose outbreak they had never de
sired, they believed they had rendered
a service not only to tormented hu
manity but also to a great idea per se.
Themselves the most serious suf
ferers from the result of this insane
struggle, the millions composing our
people trustingly seized upon the idea
of a new order in the relations be
tween people, an order which was to
be ennobled on one hand by doing
away with the secrecy of diplomatic
cabinet policies and on the other hand
by abandoning the terrible methods
of war. The historically severest re
sult of the defeat seemed to many
Germans to be the only sacrifice
necessary in order once and for all to
save the world from similar terrors.
League of Nations Hailed.
The idea of the League of Nations
has perhaps in no nation awakened
more fervent acclaim than in Ger
many. stripped as she was of all
earthly happiness. Only thus was it
conceivable that the German people
not only accepted but also fulfilled
the conditions, verily senseless in
many respects, for the destruction of
every condition and possibility of de
fense.
The German people and especially
their governments of that time were
convinced that by fulfillment of the
conditions of disarmament laid down
in the Versailles treaty and in ac
cordance with the promises of that
treaty, the beginning of international
general disarmament would be marked
and guaranteed.
For, only in a two-sided fulfillment
of the task set by the treaty could
there lie a moral and sensible justi
fication for a demand which, one
sidedly imposed and executed, nad
necessarily to lead to an eternal dis
crimination and thereby to a declara
tion of inferiority of a great nation.
would unly create Hatred.
Under such conditions, however, a
peace treaty of this sort could never
create the conditions for a true inward
reconciliation of peoples, nor for the
pacification of the world achieved in
this manner, but could only set up
a hatred that would gnaw eternally.
Germany has, according to the in
vestigation of the Interallied Control
Commission, fulfilled the disarmament
conditions imposed upon her. Follow
ing the work of destruction of the
German power of resistance and the
means necessary therefor, there was
certified by this commisison:
Army—59.897 cannon and heavy
gun barrels, 130.558 machine guns,
31,470 mine throwers and barrels, 6,
007.000 guns and carbines, 243,937
machine-gun bores, 28.001 cannon car
riages. 4.390 machine-gun carriages.
38.750,000 bullets, 16.550.000 hand and
gun grenades, 60,400,000 fuses. 491,
000,000 rounds of ammunition for
hand weapons, 335.000 tons of shell
cases. 23.515 tons of cartridge cases,
37.600 tons of powder. 79,500 ammuni
tion empties, 212,000 telephones, 1,072
flame throwers, 31 armored cars, 59
tanks. 1,762 observation cars, 8,982
wireless stations, 1,240 field bakeries,
2,199 pontoons, 981.7 tons Of equip
ment for soldiers. 8.230,350 sacks of
equipment for soldiers, 7,300 pistols
and revolvers, 180 machine-gun sleds,
21 transportable workshops, 12 anti
aircraft gun carriages, 11 limbers, 64,
000 steel helmets, 174,000 gas masks,
2,500 machines of the former war in
dustry and 8,000 gun barrels.
15,714 Military Planes.
Air forces—15,714 chasing and
bombing planes, 2,757 airplane motors.
Navy—Material that was neither
destroyed, scrapped, sunk nor handed
over: Twenty-six first-class battle
ships. four coastal cruisers, four ar
mored cruisers, 18 small cruisers. 21
schooling and other ships. 83 torpedo
boats and 315 submarines.
In addition, there had to be de
stroyed vehicles of all sorts, utensils
for gas attacks and partly for gas pro
tection, fuel of various kinds and ex
plosives. searchlights, gun sighting
i appliances, instrumente for measuring
*
distance m sound, optical instruments
of all kinds, harness for horses, equip
ment for narrow - gauge railways,
printeries, field kitchens, workshops,
cut and thrust weapons, steel helmets,
material ior transporting munitions,
normal and special machines belong
ing to war industry, mounting frames,
drawings for the latter, and hangars
for airplanes and airships, etc.
Right to Expect Redemption.
After this historically unexampled
fulfilment of a treaty, the German
people had the right to expect the
redemption also by the other side of
I obligations undertaken. For, firstly.
Germany had disarmed: secondly, in
the peace tieaty the demand had been
expressly made that Germany must
be disarmed in order thereby to create
the precondition for general disarma
ment—that is. it was contended that
Germany's armaments alone fur
nished the reason lor the armaments
of the other countries; thirdly, the
German people at that time were filled
both as regards their government and
their parties with a spirit that corre
sponded exactly with the pacifistic
democratic ideals of the League of
Nations and its founders.
But while Germany as one party to
the treaty had fulfilled its obligations,
the redemption of the obligation on
the part of the second partner to the
treaty failed to become a fact. That
means the high contracting parties
of the former victor states have one
sidedly divorced themselves from the
obligations of the Versailles treaty.
Not alone did they refrain from dis
arming in a manner that could by any
stretch be comparable with the de
struction of German arms. No. not
even was there a nalt in the arma
ments race; on the contrary, the in
crease of aîmaments on the part of
a whole group of states became evi
dent. Whatever had during the war
been invented in the way of new en
gines of destruction was now in peace
; time brought to final perfection by
: methodically scientific labor.
New Cannon Constructed.
In tne reaim 01 creating jmgmj
armored cars, as well as in that of
new fighting and bombing planes, con
tinuous and terrible improvements re
sulted. New gigantic cannon were
j constructed, new explosive fire and
; gas bombs were developed.
The world, however, since then has
! again resumed its cries of war just as
though there never had been a World
ι War nor the Versailles treaty. In the
midst of these highly armed, warlike
states which were more and more
making use of the most modern motor
ized equipment. Germany was, militar
ily speaking, in a vacuum, defense
lessly at the mercy of every threaten
ing danger.
The German people recall the mis
fortunes and suffering of 15 years of
economic misery and political and
moral humiliation. It was therefore
understandable that Germany began
to loudly demand the fulfillment of the
promises made by other states to dis
arm. for this Is clear: The world would
not only stand for 100 years of peace,
but such a period would be an un
measured boon. It cannot, however,
stand for 100 years of division into
victor and vanquished.
The conviction that international
disarmament was morally justified and
necessary gained ground, not only in
Germany, but also among many other
peoples. Prom the insistence of these
forces there resulted attempts through
conferences to give direction to the
reduction of armaments and thereby
to a general International equalization
on a low level. Thus there developed
the first proposals for an Interna
tional agreement on armaments of
which we remember the MacDonald
plan as significant.
Ready to Accept Plan.
Germany was ready to accept this
plan and adopt it as the foundation
for arrangements to be arrived at. It
failed because the other states de
clined to accept it and was finally
abandoned.
Inasmuch as under these circum
stances the equality which was sol
emnly promised to the German people
and Reich in the declaration of De
cember. 1932, failed of realization, the
new Reich's government, as guardian
of the honor and right to live of the
German people, *m unable to con·
«
tiniie to take part in conferences of
that sort or to continue membership
in the League of Nations. However,
even after leaving Geneva Germany
still was ready, not only to examine
the other states' proposals, but to her
self make practical proposal.
In that connection she identified
herself with the viewpoint which
other states themselves had ex
pressed; namely, that the creation of
armies with short enlistments is not
suited to the purpose of attack, and
is therefore recommendable for peace
ful defense. Germany was therefore
ready to transform the Reichswehr
with its long service period into an
army with short enlistments, conson
antly with the wishes of the other
states.
Proposals Were Practical.
Her proposals, made during the
Winter of 1933-4 were practical and
executable. The fact that they were
declined, as well as the fact that the
Italian and English proposals along
similar lines were finally declined,
justified the conclusion that on the
other side of the contracting parties
there no longer existed any inclina
tion for a belated and honest fulfill
ment of the disarmament clauses of
Versailles.
Under these circumstances the
German government saw itself com
pelled of its own accord to take those
necessary measures which could in
sure the end of a condition of impo
tent defenselessness of a great people
and Reich, which was as unworthy
as in the last analysis it was menac
ing. In so doing it proceeded from
the same premises which Mr Baldwin
(Stanley Baldwin, British lord presi
dent of the Council) in his last
speech so truthfully expressed:
•'A country which is not willing to
adopt the necessary preventive meas
ures for its own defense will never
enjoy any power in this world, either
moral or material."
The government of the present day
German Reich, however, desires but
one single moral and material power;
namely, the power to safeguard peace
for the Reich and thereby, really
also, fjr all Europe.
The government, therefore, con
tinued to do what it could and what
served the advancement of peace.
Firstly, it proposed a long time ago
the conclusion of non-aggression pacts
to all its neighbor states.
Secondly, it has sought for and
found the adjustment laid down in
the treaty with its eastern neighbor
which, thanks to the great under
standing shown on the other side,
has as it hopes, forever taken the
poison out of the threatening at
mosphere which it found on seizing
power, and which will lead to lasting
reconciliation and friendship between
the two peoples.
Thirdly, it has finally given France
the solemn assurance that Germany,
after the adjustment of the Saar
question, now no longer will make
territorial demands upon France.
It believes thereby, in a manner
rare in history, to have created the
pre-condition for ending the cen
tury-old strife between the two great
nations by making a heavy political
and material sacrifice.
The German government must,
however, to its regret, note that for
months the rest of the world has been
rearming continuously and increas
ingly. It sees in the creation of a
Soviet Russian Army of 101 divi
sions, that is. an admitted present
peace strength of 960,000 men, an
element that at the time of the con
clusion of the Versailles treaty could
not have been divined. It sees In the
forcing of similar measures In other
states further proofs of the declina
tion to accept the disarmament idea,
as originally proclaimed.
Reich Must Take Action.
Far be It from the German gov
ernment to raise complaint against
any other state. It must point out.
however, today that by France's in
troduction of a two-year service pe
riod as now decided, the idea upon
which the creation of armies with
short enlistment had been tested has
been abandoned in favor of an or
ganization with long enlistments
This, however, was one of the argu
ments advanced at tbe time for de·
X
manding that Germany give up her
Reichswehr.
Under these circumstances the
German government considers it im
passible to still longer refrain from
taking the necessary measures for
the security of the Reich or even to
hide the knowledge therof from the
1 other nations.
If, therefore. It now fulfills the wish
for enlightening the world on Ger
many's intentions, as expressed in
the speech by the British Minister,
Stanley Baldwin. November 28. 1934.
it does so: Firstly, in order to give
the German people the conviction
and other states the knowledge that
1 the safeguarding of the honor and
security of the German Reich hence
forth will be again entrusted to the
power of the German nation: sec
ondly, in order, by fixing the ex
tent of German measures, to de
vitalize those claims which attempt to
ascribe to the German people a striv
ing for a position of military hegem
j ony in Europe.
What the German government as
the guardian of the honor and inter
ests of the German nation desires Is
to make sure that Germany possesses
' sufficient instruments of power not
only to maintain the integrity of the
German Reich but also to command
international respect and value as
co-guarantor of general peace.
Acts Solely for Defense.
For in this hour the German gov
ernment renews before the German
people, before the entire world, its
assurance of its determination never
I to proceed beyond the safeguarding
I of German honor and freedom of the
Reich, and especially does it not in
. tend in rearming Germany to create
! any instrument for warlike attack,
but to the contrary, exclusively for
defense and thereby for the main
tenance of peace.
In so doing the German Reich's
i government expresses the confident
j hope that the German people, having
i again reverted to their own honor.
! may be privileged in independent
1 equality to make its contribution for
ι the pacification of the world in free
and open co-operation with other na
! tions and their governments.
With this in vieV the German
Reich's government today passed the
j following law: "Law for the upbuild
ing of a defensive force, dated March
16, 1935," which is hereby made
public:
"1. Service in defensive force en
j sues on a basis of general obligation
\ to defend.
"2. The German peace army, in
clusive of police troops incorporated
therein, consists of 12 corps com
mands and 36 divisions.
"3. Supplementary laws for regulat
ing general defensive duty are to be
; presented to the Reich's cabinet by
the Reich's minister of defense.

stated her Intention of establishing
military superiority instead of
equality.
A meeting of the cabinet subcom
mittee on disarmament was called
for Sunday to consider the German
action.
The meeting was called after Sir
John Simon, foreign secretary, who
sped back to London from South
Wales where he delivered an ad
dress last night, made an extensive
study of the report to the foreign
office made by the British Embassy
in Berlin.
Air Minister Hermann Wilhelm
Goerings announcement of forma
tion of an air force earlier In the
week, coming on the heels of the
British white paper, was interpreted
then as a hint of what might follow,
but such complete action as Hitler's
today in reply to the French military
extension came like a bombshell.
Sir Eric Phipps, British Ambassador
at Berlin, immediately telephoned the
foreign office following an Interview
with Hitler and Foreign Minster
Konstantin von Neurath. Long -
distance phone calls were made to
high government officials who were
out of town, informing them of Hit
ler's verbal message.
Authorities intimated tonight that
a special cabinet session was likely
to be called Monday to consider the
situation. Cabinet members discussed
it tonight by phone.
ΤΟΚΙΟ, March 17 l/Pt.—Behind a
mask of discreet official silence was
discernable general sympathy in Japan
today for Germany's bold move to
strengthen her army.
VIENNA, March 16 (/Pi.—While
Austro-German relations are admit
tedly anything but cordial, little effort
was made tonight to conceal the fact
that Austrian sympathy is with Ger
many in so far as her answer to
British and French warnings of
heightened military preparedness is
concerned.
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia, March 16
f/P).—Fear was expressed in Yugosla
\ia today that Austria. Hungary and
Bulgaria, encouraged by Germany's
decision to reintroduce conscription,
would take similar steps. In such a
case Belgrade would feel directly af
fected. News of the German decision
created no great surprise in official
Yugoslav circles, as it had been ex
pected for some time.
PRAHA. Czechoslovakia. March 16
OP)—Praha newspapers said tonight
that since Germany has declared
military conscription her neighbor
states must also increase their arma
ments very materially. Official cir
cles. although intensely interested in
the Berlin announcement, said it con
cerns first of all the great powers—
whose views are those of Czechoslo
vakia—and that it was not a matter
on which this country should express
an opinio*!.
ITALIAN OFFICIALS SILENT.
Romp Waits for Reaction in Other

ROME. March 16 (Λ*>.—Three-way
i emergency consultations between Italy,
: France and England were under way
tonight over what action should be
taken on Germany's abrogation of the
military clauses of the Treaty of
Versailles, said an Italian spokesman.
A government spokesman said that
until the reaction at Paris and London
was made known here, Italy could not
state her official views. Well informed
circles, however, doubted that any
positive action could be taken, ex
cepting pessibly a diplomatic protest
at Berlin.
ι The Hitler announcement. It was

tension, which it is admitted might ,
lead to a war.
If by strong diplomatic representa
tions such tension could be lessened
and the danger of an immediate con
flict averted, it is believed the United
States will take action on the basis
of the German-American peace
treaty.
Naturally the State Department
does not know yet whether or when
such action might be taken: neither
is it known whether it would be ad
visable to join other nations in a
common note or send it independently
of the signatories of the Versailles
treaty.
In official quarters it is firmly be
lieved that the new move of
Reichsfuhrer Adolph Hitler, at the
instigation of the Reichswehr. will
bring about some sort of a showdown
in Europe. *
The German army, according to
the statement of the Reichsfuhrer,
will be larger than any other
European army—except that of the
Soviets.
Veterans in German Army.
While It is true the peace strength
of the French army is 650.000 men.
its actual force is only about 500.000.
The balance are raw recruits who
cannot be employed for at least six
months as active soldiers. The Ger
man army has the advantage over
the French in that it has a nucleus
of over 100.000 men belonging to the
old Reichswehr, all professional
soldiers who have been drilling for
the last five years. Furthermore, the
Schuppos ί military police), about the
same strength as the Reichswehr.
can form a valuable addition to the
new German army. while the
2.000,000 Black Shirts and other
Hitlerite organizations have had
sufficient military training to be in
corporated in the new army as
efficient soldiers almost immediately.
While the German army will con
stitute at the present moment only
a powerful defensive force, the new
military organization, taking into con
sideration the thoroughness of the
German organization, will become the
leading military power in Europe
within a short time. Here lies the
danger of immediate retaliatory action
from the former allies, especially
Britain and France.
Air Force Powerful.
As it is. Germany possesses today
one of the most powerful air forces
in the world. It is, according to re
liable reports, equal in strength to
the United States and better equipped.
If Germany Is permitted to disre
gard the military clauses of the Ver
sailles treaty, London and Paris be
lieve that she will soon force an issue
on the political clauses of that treaty
and will be able to defy the allied
powers as soon as she possesses a
force superior to that of France and
Britain.
For this reason, some action on the
part of the latter powers, supported by
Italy and the U. S. S. R. is expected
in the next few weeks.
