Old Dispute Flares
Between Rumania
And Hungary
Berlin's Effort to Play
One Against Other
Renews Tension
Bt Associatfri Press.
21.—Old hatred between Hungary
and Rumania—two Axis states—
has flared uo again despite efforts
of Germany to make it appear that
all Europe has been united behind
the Nazi spring campaign against
This hatred, menacing Adolf Hit
lers plans, has been more or less
dormant for the last year since Ger
man pressure imposed a truce on the
press of the two countries, but ap
parently even the German efforts
were unable to keep it suppressed
Tn fact, informed quarters said,
the renewal of tension between the
two countries is due directly to Ber
lin's attempts to play one against
the other with the hope of getting
the maximum aid from each.
(The London Daily Mails
Geneva correspondent reported
that Hungary had militarily
strengthened her borders with
Rumania because of Rumania's
growing territorial grievances.)
Dispute “Far From Settled.”
Rumania's feelings were made
known Thursday by Prof. Mihail
Antonescu. who has been serving as
premier since his uncle, Marshal Ion
Antonescu. took ovpr active com
mand of the Rumanian army. He
declared the dispute over Transyl
vania was far from settled as far as
Rumania was concerned.
This was the first public mention
of the subject by a high official since
the Vienna Conference of 1940, at
which the Axis awarded northern
Transylvania to Hungary.
During recent weeks Berlin lead
ers have been using the award as
an argument to get Hungary to
supply more troops for the spring
campaign. They were reported to
have told the Budapest government
that the award might be recon
sidered unless the Hungarians fur
nished at least as many troops as
Jhe Rumanians.
Prof. Antonescu declared the Ru
manians in Northern Transylvania
had suffered many humiliations and
discriminations at the hands of the
Hungarians and said “we must de
clare this cannot last any longer.”
He said the Rumanian press had
remained silent despite Hungarian
newspaper attacks, but that this
now was impossible.
Signal to Rumanian Press.
The Hungarian press printed Prof.
Antonescu's speech, but did not
comment. Parliamentary circles
confined comment to remarks that
l he speech was "surprising” in view
of the united efforts of the Axis to
prepare for the spring campaign.
The Antonescu speech was a sig
nal for the Rumanian press to end
the armistice.
The newspaper Unirpa. apparently
expressing the general view, said:
"This is a clear warning. The day
Is not far when the sufferings of
our people will be relieved and jus
tice will be done.”
The Transylvania question has
been a sore spot between Rumania
and Hungary ever since the end
of the first World War. when the
territory was incorporated into Ru
mania. Its transfer back to Hun
gary by the Vienna conference was
one of the principal factors leading
to the abdication of King Carol
of Rumania in 1940
At that time, both the Hungarian
and Rumanian press indulged in
bitter a-ttacks which ended only
when Germany forced a press armis- i

I havp proclaimed April fi Army

ever to us this year. We are fight

Army Day becomes, therefore,
in fact a total-war day. It becomes
a day when all of our citizens in

in the united effort of all of our
forces—Army. Navy and civilians—
can we find the strength to defeat
our enemies.
Never before in the 166 years of
our history as a free republic under
God have our armed forces had so
much meaning for us all. We are
engaged in our greatest war. a war
that will leave none of our lives
wholly untouched.
We shall win that war as we have
won every war we have fought. We
are fighting it with a combined
force of free men that is. in Lin

Australia Presses for Voice

Dr. Evatt Hopes U. S.
Will Urge London
To Accept Plan
Reopening with new vigor a trying
political Issue on which the United
Nations have been widely divided
since the attack on Pearl Harbor,
the Australian government Is press
ing the United States today to use
its influence on England and make
possible the establishment in Wash
ington of a Pacific War Council
The core of the question is the
relative importance of the Pacific I
and European theaters of vai’. Aus- I
tralia is sure that the war must be
fought with relentless vigor in the
Pacific, and is said still to fear that
London has less than an adequate
conception of the implications of the
Pacific war.
The new Australian demands re
veal the width of the rift in opinion
between Canberra and London,
which already has been strikingly
emphasized by the case of Richard
G. Casey, the Australian Minister
here. His appointment as a mem
ber of the British Cabinet with the
duties of Minister of State assigned
to Cairo displeased his government
in Canberra.
Casey Issues Statement.
Dispatches from London indicate
that Prime Minister Churchill will
discuss the Casey appointment in
Parliament, and Australia plans to
issue a White Boole on the incident
next Wednesday. In a statement
issued here last night, Maj. Casey
had this to say for himself:
"I do not believe it is in the public
interest that I should discuss the
various factors that led me to accept
Mr. Churchill's proposal. I dis
cussed the matter with all those who
could bring a useful point of view to
bear and generally the suggested ap
pointment was welcomed in the
-general interest.
"If I had thought that Australian
interests would suffer I would not
have considered the proposal for a

the point of view of my duty in re
spect to the conduct of the war in

Brazil Publishes Letter Telling
Of Jap Plot to Seize Sao Paulo
By th** A'«foriatf*d Pr*ss.
RIO DE JANEIRO, March 21 —
The government today made public
a letter from "the son of a Japanese
born, raised and educated in Brazil”
relating plans for the thousands of
Japanese settled in Sao Paulo State
to take over first the State and then
all Brazil.
The letter was published by the
government news agency, which
said the name of the writer was
withheld "for obvious reasons.”
It said Japanese throughout Brazil
had been organized into military
divisions under officers, some of
them generals, "sent here on a spe
cial mission as chiefs of the Jap
anese army in Brazil.”
The letter purported the Japanese
to have a force of 25.000 men "who
could occupy the city ... in half an
hour.” seizing army barracks and
overpowering the military police,
"which never have more than 20
men on guard.”
The Japanese would be adequately
armed with machineguns. rifles and
anti-tank guns imported by now
blacklisted Japanese firms in Sao
Paulo, the letter said.
It added that the Japanese would
be supported by fifth column or
ganizations throughout the nation
and could block troop movements
by control of railro^is.
