With the German Army
Louis P. Lochner, famous American
war correspondent, has written for the
Associated Press a series of five stories
dealing with various phases of life with
the German Army. The first appears
today. The others will be in Tuesday,
Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday edi
tions. Mr. Lochner, chief of the Berlin
bureau of the Associated Press, is a
Pulitzer prize winner. *
Louis P. Lochner
Associated Press War Correspondent.
BERLIN. — Two “invisible divi
sions.” as one officer -put it to me,
helped win Germany's war against
They were the "Engelland Lied”
and the "Frankreich Lied,” (Eng
land song and France song)—two
stirring tunes composed especially
lor the western offensive.
The general in command of these
invisible divisions was Propaganda
Minister Goebbels, whose "army”
further included daredevil camera
men, uniformed reporters whose
feats often won them Iron Crosses;
radio reporters who stood in the
thick of battle, and all modern
technical devices for influencing
public opinion.
As an example of minute atten
tion to details let me repeat what
my officer associate told me about
the France song.
“The song writer and composer
trusted with the writing of this
song,” he said, "merely furnished
the raw' material. Thereafter seven
of us, including Goebbels, took a
hand. We went over every line of
the stirring text exhorting our sol
diers to march “into France, adding
or subtracting here and there, im
proving the language. Then we
went over the musical score.
"You will notice that there is a
brief introduction before the song
itself begins, and that in this in
troduction the famous ‘Watch on
the Rhine’ motif is indicated. Well,
that idea was Goebbels. You will
also note certain flourishes by the
band where long notes are held
by the chorus. Well, I suggested
Hardly a day had passed after
the opening of the western offensive
before the entire nation sang the
"Frankreich Lied.” I heard it again
and again from marching columns
in Flanders and around Paris. I
never could turn on the radio for
German news without hearing it.
As soldiers clustered around the
radio cars they would join in the
There can be no doubt about the
psychological value of this song.
The same thing applies to the
"Engelland Lied.” It began to form
part of the news broadcast rite even
before the France song, in fact right
after the conclusion of the Polish
During the Polish operations, in
cidentally, the "Polen Lied” was
played with equal effect, just as a
certain, song familiar to all Sudeten
Germans closed all newrs broadcasts
during the anxious weeks before the
Munich accord in September. 1938.
British and French broadcasts, so
far as I heard them, had nothing
of equal psychological value to offer
in the way of blood-stirring songs.
It appears to have paid good divi
dends to have thrown countless ra
dio trucks into the military opera
tions zone.
These broadcasts served a twofold
purpose: To provide relief from
tedious monotony and to keep sol
diers pepped up with news of vic
torious progress.
One day I stood at the largest pon
toon bridge constructed by German
engineers during this war, the bridge
spanning the Schelde River in Ant
werp. It was a hot day. The troops
poured across this narrow bridge in
and endless stream. They showed
signs of wear, of forced marches,
of lack of sleep. About five min
utes later a radio truck took posi
tion beside the first pontoon and a
snappy, jolly march blared forth.
The effect on the troops was baffling
to see. Everybody relaxed, every
body felt better, everybody began
whistling or singing.
Another impression I will never
forget is that of soldiers crowding
around radio trucks during news
broadcasts, sitting on top of them
or perching on the limbs of trees
overhanging them. The soldier at
the front thus was always abreast
of news reports. In addition he re
ceived a daily paper entitled West
Front, which filled him in on de
The soldiers’ good humor also was
kept alive by certain weekly broad
casts in which family news was fea
tured. Thus Pvt. Fritz Mueller
heard on the radio, long before the
letter from home arrived, that his
wife had given birth to a strapping
son. Heinrich Schultz learned that
his aged parents celebrated their
golden wedding in perfect health.
Radio played an important part
in working on the minds of the
population in occupied areas. For
instance, our entry into capitulated
Paris was immediately followed by
radio trucks which informed Paris
ians how certain French statesmen
had fled, how Churchill was trying
to discredit Petain.
In Poland, Norway, Denmark,
Holland, Belgium, France, every
where, broadcasts in the language
of the country’ began subtly to win
the population over to the German
The idea of giving all German war
correspondents, cameramen and
i newsreel photographers the status
of regular soldiers or officers en
abled these newsmen to go to the
most dangerous positions with type
writer or camera, just as any private
could be sent there with a rifle. As
a result Germany possesses an ar
j chive of eyewitness stories and a
' file of action pictures.
Demands on Turkey
Expected to Follow
Nazi-Soviet Parley
Russian Ambassador
Leaves Istanbul After
Talk With German Envoy
By the Associated Press.
ISTANBUL, July 8.—Russian Am
bassador Alexei Terentiev was re
ported en route to Moscow today
aboard the Black Sea steamer
Svanecia following a one-hour con
ference here with Franz von Papen,
German Ambassador to Turkey.
Informed sources said the two
Ambassadors had discussed demands
which Russia is expected to make on
Turkey shortly.
In Turkish political circles, a note
from Russia setting forth these de
mands was expected some time after
Terentiev reaches Moscow.
Speculation concerned the possi
bility Russia might ask for conces
sions in the Dardanelles, fortified
straits guarding the entrance to the
Black sea or in the Kars region
of the Caucasus, which Russia lost
in the World War.
Foreign diplomats say they under
stand Germany, Italy and Russia
are workipg closely together in de
ciding what attitude should be taken
toward Turkey, which last fall
signed a mutual assistance pact
with Britain and France.
Many of these expressed belief
that Germany was fully supporting
Russian demands for an extension
of Russian interest in this area.
Diplomatic circles expressed be
lief that Italy, although reluctant to
see Russia approach the Mediter
ranean, would likewise have to sup
port Moscow.

Hindsight and Foresight1
■ President, Institute of Life Insurance ■■
JUST a short time ago the Congress of the
United States put the finishing touches on an
i _. < other 3 billion dollars' worth of
national defense appropriations.
“Insurance against war,” they
called it. And it seems a small
price to pay for peace and secu
rity. True, it is about four cents
out of every dollar every one of
us will earn this year, but if it
will just give us the chance to
go on being free, to go on seek
ing individual security and na
uonai nappmess, we can wen anora u.
Tt may interest you to know that 3 billion dol
lars is also just about the sum of the benefits
which life insurance companies will pay out or
credit this yeartopolicyholders ortheirfamilies.
These 3 billions of life insurance will mean food
and shelter and comf ort-peace-for about a million
families. Some of the families are your neighbors
or may even be your friends or relatives. In all,
there are sixtv-four million life insurance policy
holders in America who, even as you and I, foresee
the need of a personal or family "defense fund”
— a protection against the dangers all men face.
And so, each of the sixty-four million of us
“appropriates" a few cents out of every dollar he
earns and puts it into life insurance.
AND I think the most comforting thought of all
is that we can depend on our life insurance.
Your life insurance company may seem far away
from you, impersonal. But when loss or trouble
comes, you’ll find it right at your side, all prepared
to give you the full reward of your foresight.
XOTE: In this regular Monday column, paid for at adver
tising rates, the Institute of Life Insurance has asked its
president to discuss questions of interest to life insurance
policyholders. Inquiries may be addressed to 60 East 42nd
Street, New York City.
