Balkans Told by Hitler
To End Own Rows, Nazi Paper Hints Says Nations Must Recognize Axis' Plan For New Order ■? the Associated Press. BERLIN. July 28 (Sunday).—An Indication that Adolf Hitler told Balkan statesmen he expected them to settle their own differences, but that Germany favored both Bul garian and modified Hungarian claims on Rumania, was given to day by the newspaper National Zeitung of Essen. The Balkan countries, said the newspaper, which is close to No. 2 Nazi Hermann Wilhelm Goering. must acknowledge the Rome-Berlin Axis’ principles for a "new order in Europe.” "Such acknowledgement.” it add ed, "cannot be forced or bought, for it is either the basis of the policy or it is not.” Sympathy for Demands. Germany never has made a secret of the fact "that the Reich viewed with sympathy reasonable demands by Hungary and Bulgaria for revis ion.” the newspaper commented. Rumania, it said, has been man euvered into an unnatural role ‘‘which it never was in a position to play” and "is also conscious that this policy belongs to the past and must be liquidated.” "The principles of the Axis pow ers and the necessities of the new order depend on fulfillment of justi fied demands such as Bulgaria makes on the southern Dobruja,” the National Zeitung contended. "Out of the same considerations. Hungary will have to undertake cer tain reductions of the idea of Ste phen's Crown. (Territory which ’ Hungary claims.) Hungarian Question Involved.. "Between Hungary and Rumania j there stands without question con siderable more room for debate than between Rumania and Bulgaria where only the southern Dobruja is involved. "The Hungarian-Rumanian prob lem is, in addition, complicated in that historical developments limit Hungarian claims in a certain way." The Hungarians understand that solution of their full claims is im- ' possible, the newspaper added, and , that it. also "is clear to Rumanians that obvious injustices which were j brought on Hungary in the found- 1 ing of Rumania represent a con tinual cause of dangerous tensions j end must be eliminated if beneficial j peace for both nations is to be Ushered into the Danube plains." Confers With Bulgarians. The Fuehrer himself was busy with the re-casting of roles which ; Balkan nations will play in the new made-in-Germany Europe. He conferred yesterday afternoon with another group of Balkan | statesmen—Premier Bogdan Philoff and Foreign Minister Ivan Popoff of Bulgaria. Friday he received the Rumanian Premier and Foreign Minister, who then went on to Rome for talks with Benito Mussolini and his Foreign Miinster. Today the I Slovak Premier and Foreign Minis- | ter will be given the Fuehrer's Views. A communique issued after Hit lers meeting with the Bulgarians said only that conversations had been carried on "in the cordial spirit of traditional friendship which has existed unchanged between Bulgaria 1 and the Reich since they were brothers-in-arms in the World War." The Bulgarian statesmen left j Salzburg last night for Sofia. Peace Declared Aim. Germany has emphasized repeat edly that she wants only peace in j the Balkans, source of much of her oil and food supplies. The frontier revisions necessary to insure peace in this region are expected to be agreed on between Bulgaria, Ru mania and Hungarv themselves, authorized sources said. These srtirces intimated a round table parley between the three kingdoms might soon settle the frontiers question. In the 1919 post war settlements Hungary lost Transylvania and Bulgaria lost Southern Dobruja to Rumania. Now they want Rumania who already has lost Bessarabia and Northern Bucovina in the Soviet Russian oc cupation of a month ago. to give up these territories, too. Closer Balkan Relations Are Urged by Germany BUDAPEST. Hungary. July 27.— Germany has told Rumania to de cide by direct negotiations with Hungary and Bulgaria how much land to cede to those two countries and to hurry up about it. an official source disclosed tonight. Adolf Hitler, in conversations with the Rumanian government leaders at Obersalzberg is said to have in sisted that the negotiations start quickly so that southeastern Europe ran rest quietly during the expected Nazi assault on England. The demands that must be met, Germany is understood to have stated, are those of Hungary for : at least part of Transylvania and i of Bulgaria for at least some of | Snacial M0N' TUES' opeciat— wed.

Dobruja, territories which Rumania now possesses. The size of the territories to be ceded must be decided between the three countries, however. Moreover, Hitler is represented as having expressed a desire that Ru mania. Hungary and Bulgaria adopt close relations, perhaps even mili tary accords. Despite Germany's obvious guar antee of Rumania's good faith. Hungary, officials declared, will re main on a war footing until the demands are satisfied. That Rumania will attempt to postpone territorial cession until the end of the war was seen in a government radio declaration that immediate return of land to Hun gary and Bulgaria is impossible. Bucharest • Continued From First Paged ugees reaching Bessarabia complain, gave Bucharest yet another worry. Appointment of Grigore Gafencu, recently Rumania's foreign min ister. as minister to Moscow was announced, and it was hoped he might be able to improve relations with the Soviet Union. Details of Realignment Discussed in Rome ROME. July 27 (^.—Completing the axis circuit, Rumania's Premier and Foreign Minister came to Rome today and talked over details of a Balkan territorial realignment which, it was reported by a usually well-informed source, will give parts of their country to both Hungary and Bulgaria. This source said there was virtual agreement that Rumania will yield some of the province of Transyl vania to Hungary and some of Do bruja to Bulgaria, their former owners, and that there probably will be an exchange of minority populations. Others in touch with Balkan capi tals predicted that what remains of Rumania, in turn, would get a German-Italian guarantee of pro tection from Soviet Russia, which already has taken back its former province of Bessarabia. ine Kumamar.s came nere lresn from conversations with Adolf Hit ler. and they received pointers from Premier Mussolini today on the part their nation will be expected to play in the "new Europe" planned by the axis if Germany and Italy beat England. Coincidentally, the Fascist press declared that Britain herself would have to fall in line politically with the axis-dominated scheme. There was speculation in Ru manian circles on the possibility Rumania may show her new-found pro-axis friendship by inviting Ital ian and German specialists to take charge of her oil fields. Such a gesture, it was explained, might discourage any possible So viet designs on the rich producing areas from which the British and French are being ousted. A hint as to what II Duce told Rumanian Premier Ion Gigurtu and Foreign Minister Mihail Manoilescu was given by the newspaper La Tribuna, which said Italy and Ger many would expect Rumania to settle peacefully her territorial and other quarrels with her neighbors. The meeting was believed also to have touched upon Italy’s share of Rumanian oil. "Superior continental interests require Rumania and Hungary and Rumania and Bulgaria to compose their differences with a spirit of justice which takes into account historic factors and the prospects for fruitful collaboration In the fu ture," the newspaper asserted. Collapse of French-British influ ence in the Balkans and the Dan ubian area was cited. The authoritative commentary Relazione Internationale declared England would have to adjust her political regime to the new Euro pean scheme. “Until Great Britain has new leaders, and no less a new regime, its place in Europe is nothing,” it said. Virginio Gayda, who often re flects Mussolini's views, stressed in an article in 11 Giornale dltalia the importance of economic adjust ments to be made in postwar Eu rope. He forecast “a controlled economy no longer based on individual terri tories but a vaster European area." Military Conscription Age Urged at 21 to 31 Chalmers Seymour McConnell, past president of the District So ciety. Sons of the American Revo lution. has urged members of Con gress to fix the combat ages of those conscripted in a military training program at from 21 to 31. Mr. McConnell, in letters to com mittees considering pending legisla tion on the program, contended that broader age limits would tend to disrupt civil, domestic and busi ness life of the Nation. He also called for militarization of the Civilian Conservation Corps and re-establishment of a training corps in colleges similar to that in effect during the World War.

The Census Bureau anticipates a flood of requests for proof of age and birthplace if the compulsory military training bill becomes law. Requests, largely from prospective national defense workers, already are being received at a rate of 2,000 a week. Many persons must turn to the census records, the bureau said, because of the general neglect In recording such Information offi cially until recent years. The bureau received 113,000 such requests In the first six months of this year, a 20 per cent gain over 1939, and 6,000 more than in all of 1938. The highest figure for one month was 21,210 in June. Officials said that requests during the first three weeks of July had almost equaled the June total, however. Many people in Ecuador are fac ing want as result of the war in Europe. Alban M.
