Again European troubles have
dominated the headlines. Again the
imminent possibility of war has ob
scured all other news.
In the view of most of the ex
perts. the week ending September 3
was the most ominous since the
grim days of 1914 that preceded the
World War. As usual, Hitler made
the biggest news. Tens of thousands
of German troops were moved into
the new Siegfried chain of forti
fications, which faces the famous
French Maginot line—supposedly
the most impregnable border de
fense ever erected. According to
the formal German press reports,
this simply marked ordinary man
euvers, and in no way indicated that
the Reich was planning military ac
tion against anyone. But the fact
remains that it was done as a pre
lude to the Nazi party congress at
Numberg—and Hitler has often
called party congresses whenever
he planned a move of exceptional
daring. And the fact also remains
that the German government-con
trolled press has again been carry
ing on a virulent campaign against
The Czechs are in an exceeding
1y bad position— and every indica
tion holds that their position will
get worse, rather than better. The
Czech government, headed by Ed
ouard Benes, often called “Europe's
greatest little stateman,” has of
fered significant-concessions to the
Sudeten German minority in the
country, headed by Konrad Hen
lein, whom almost every foreign
correspondent regards as a Hitler
tool. These concessions would give
the Sudeten Germans a semi-auto
nomous government of their own,
largely bued on the Swiss Canton.
principle; would reorganize their‘
school system, so that Nazi dogma
would be taught the Sudeten Czech
schools; would to a great extend
withdraw the regular Czech police
from the Sudetan area, and would
give Sudetan Germans more gov
ernment Jobs. It is astonishing
that any sévernment would offer so
much to a minority which is de
termined to effect its eventual over
throw. Yet it was not enough, in
the View of Hitler. Henlein called on
the Ruhrer and was sent home with
a new series of demands. The exact

In all this. Hitler unquestionably

what more aggressive attitude than
it has in the past—partially. some

movement to force the Chamberlain,

Britain has made great m in‘

However; Britain’s desire to effect
lame sort of peace. however trans
itory, is still strong. It is this fact
which makes Hitler believe that an
nggressive attitude on Germany’s
part will cause France and Brit
ain to bring sufficient pressure
against Czechoslovakia to force the
concession of almost any demands
made by the Sudeten German Min
ority. And the fact that Hitler's
bluffs have succeeded so well in the
past naturally gives him courage
and confidence in the present crisis.
Russia, which holds the balance
of power in Europe. is saying little.
She is a Czech ally—and she poss
esses a gigantic war machine which
is probably superior in most
branches to Germany's. But she is
faced with many domestic problems
of her own, and a major war would
make it necessary for Stalin to fore
