   Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 7, 1936, Mason City, Iowa                                TWO MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE MARCH 7 1936 ot the reichswehr regular army would be as unostentatious as a dramatic symbol that Ger many at least is free of her bonds of humiliation But with brass band music and Bntiaircraft guns the first detach ment marched into Cologne through narrow streets aflame with waving swastika flags and before a wildly cheering population The soldiers had waited for or ders at the border of the demilitar ized zone throughout the night In the early morning hours they moved swiftly into the district Adjacent to Cathedral Their first military parade began at 3 p m on Hye Square adjacent to the Cologne Cathedral A shocked Europe greeted Hit lers moves with tisse acts France decided to submit the Locarno denunciation to the league of nations council Premier Sarraut called the French war council in to session and army officials moved to cancel all military leaves prob ably tonight Italy informed first of the Ger man move was reported unwilling to put into effect her guarantees under Locarno British Foreign Sec retary Anthony Eden conferred swiftly with French and Italian ambassadors the Belgian cabinet was called into Monday Creates Grave Crisis saw Hitlers thrust as creating a grave crisis likely to dwarf the ItaloEthiopian Der fuehrer packed into his 2 hour reichstag speech and diplo matic declaration more action and more proposals than Europe has heard on one occasion for years He said 1 Germany is from Lo carno because the FrancoRussian treaty violated it 2 German troops are movin into the demilitarized zone createi by the seven power mutual secur ity pact 3 Germany is ready to creat a new demilitarized zone providei France and Belgium create one in their territories too Will Sign Pacts 4 Germany will sign nonaggres sion pacts with France and Belgium in the west and with Lithuania in the east providing Lithuania agrees to respect the autonomy of Memel territory 5 Germany will sign an air pact with her western neighbors and is willing to have Italy and Great Bri tain guarantee these pacts Hollan too may join if it desires 6 Germany would reenter the league of nations if that organiza tion is disassociated with the treaty of Versailles for with reentry of troops into the Rhineland and the freeing of all German soil the rea sons for the reichs withdrawal from Geneva no longer exist a The memorandum to foreign pow ers was incorporated in the reich 1 stag speech Violate Rhine Pact It declared France had replied friendly offers tenderedit f again and again by Germany and i t to Germanys assurance of friend ship by violating the Rhine pact s and by signing a military alliance directed exclusively against Ger I inany t Germany therefore the mem orandum went on no longer con Eiders herself bound to this now de funct pact The document then announced the reich in the interest of the prim itive right of a nation to procure her own Borders and to safeguard her possibilities of defense was re claiming full unmitigated sover eignty of the reich in the demilitar ized zone of the Rhineland r It concluded with Germanys pro posals for erection of a system of new European peace safeguarding the last of which said May ReEnter League Now that Germans equality at last is finallyachieved and full sov ereigntyover the whole reich terri tory is reestablished the reich gov ernment regards the principal grounds for its withdrawal from the league of nations removed Itis ready to reenter the league in expectation that in due course by amicable negotiation the ques tion of colonial equality as well as the question of separation the league of nations covenant from its Versailles base shall be cleared up Leading up to his attack on the FrancoRussian pact der fuehrer declared he had again and again but too often in build a bridge of under atanding reaching over to the French people He pleaded Pleads for Peace Why shouldnt it be possible to break off the purposeless quarrel of centuries that did not and could not bring a final decision to either of these two peoples and to substitute for it considerations of higher com mon sense The German people are not in terested in having France suffer nor vice versa He did not he said decline co operation with Rusia but with the bolshevism that lays claim to ruling the world I do not want Hitler told his reichsag the horrors of commun istic international dictatorship and hate to descend upon the German people form Repeatedly his words brought the reichstag to its feet When he announced the reoccupation of the Rhineland his Opernhaus hearers rose and stood shouting and beat ing their hands together for fully five minutes Members Applaud Him Continually the members shouted sehr richtigr quite Der fuehrer after a swift review of a detachment of his blackshirt guard der Schutz Staffel entered the hall and quickly got down to business He sat down in the front of the auditorium for a few minutes with Dr Hjalmar Schacht his economics minister while Gen Hermann Wil helm Goering reichstag president called the tense meeting to order The American ambassador Wil liam E Dodd sat in the front row of the diplomatic gallery but the French and British envoys remained at their embassies to keep their gov ernments informed of the swiftly moving developments Von Fapen There The German ambassador to Aus tria Franz von Papen sat in a front row seat with the deputies Hitler sometimes clapping his hands together sometimes waving his arms drove his points home swiftly from one surprise to an other until the jaws of the deputies and his listeners in the galleries al most literally dropped open Each time the surprises were fol lowed by thunderous applause After his speech returning to the chancellery from the reichstag der fuehrer drove through solid lines of waving and shouting crowds which had heard the address by ra dio Given Great Ovation In front of the chancellery thou sands were massed to give him an ovation Hitlers speech occupied 78 type written pages and the delivery too about two hours Hitler told the foreign envoy that several battalions of the reich swehr regular army would ente the left bank of the tarized by both the Locarno pac and the treaty of the stroke of noon In Unostentatious Manner The occupation he declared would be carried out in the most un Again he warned the world of the inroads of the destructive revolu tionary Asiatic conception of life and said he trembled for Europe should the chaos of the bolshevik revolution prove successful Quotes Russian Figures Hitler quoted Russian army fig lires said the soviet had 1350000 men under arms and a vast military reserve tank and air power and declared this gigantic army would completely upset Europes balance of power were it allowed He disclaimed territorial claims in Europe and pledged his people to do everything that will bring to realization the high ideals of peace ful cooperation He concluded with a plea that Germany strengthen me in my faith and to support me in my struggle for real peace at the elec tions late this month Der feuhrer was in campaign ostentatious manner possible mere y as a symobl that the reich feit tself free from the Locarno provis ons Troops were in evidence at Ander ach Deutz and Cologne in the Rhineland and military planes bc an to fly over Cologne the city on he Rhine in western Germany at on Hopes ran high in the Rhineland that the demilitarization might come peacefully but surely so that the dense population might share in some economic advantages re sulting from increased industrial and building activities more free circulation of money and needs for more guns cannon and other im plements of war Aivare of Seriousness With France so near however the people in the Rhineland were more than any others aware of the seriousness of the situation Adolf Hitler before the reichstag in the moment of crisis opened his address with a historical retrospect on the World war paying tribute especially to Woodrow Wilson whose conceptions in which a new era and a better world were envis aged have reached the ears of hu manity Der fuehrer acknowledged the Wilson thesis of an endeavor to give new laws governing the rela tions of peoples toward each other and to fill them with a new spirit from which an institution might grow that as a league of all na tions might be destined to bring peoples nearer each other in mutual regard and understanding Feel for Magic Power No people feel for the magic power of this fantasy more than the Germans he declared Hitler asserted that the entire world fell into this period of lasting tension and continued crisis must be ascribed to a lack of common sense with which the problems of the nations were treated both in dividually and among each other Then followed der fuehrers oft repeated structures against the treaty of treaty which ended the World war and the military clauses of which he had already shattered with his an nouncementof rearmament of Ger many He declared Versailles was a clas sical example of how a war should not be ended Covenant Worthless The league of nations covenant he contended became worthless be cause it tied up with the Versailles treaty whiicb he said divided the world into victors and vanquished Worst of all is the spirit of hatred inherent in this treaty which took possession of the general men tality of people he said Hitler drew a gloomy picture of world conditions today which he said were very opposite to the vis ion of former United States Presi dent Woodrow Wilson Wherever we look we experience a flareup of domestic and foreign disorders he asserted No Year Passes No year passes In which some where upon this earth there has not THREE DEAD IN PRISON BREAK Warden Convict Passerby Slam During Attempt at Escape SIOUX FALLS S Dak Three men including a prison war den were dead and three others wounded Saturday as the result of a brothers attempt to free his kin from the South DaSbta state peni tentiary here The dead were Eugene Reiley 72 warden of the

condition critical and Miss Freda Rausch slightly wounded Dramatic Suddenness The prisonbreak came with dra matic suddenness in midafternoon Friday after 15 year old Clyde had visited his brother Harold Carrier serving a term for robbery in the penitentiary Clyde who arrived Friday after hitchhiking from Kansas City had two guns and he told Harold of his plan to free him Harold approved the scheme and took one of the guns The pair then covered guards and trusties took the turnkeys ring releasd Ray from another cell and fled with Warden Reiley as host age Then followed a series of auto

CONGREGATIONAL Miracle Interpreted ng folly Hitler said it was quite ear that without a marked change in mentality there never could be eal peace in the world There are politicians who seem to feel secure only when their neighbors are badly off the worse off the better he declared Giving the pomorze Polish cor ridor as an example Hitler as serted I wish the German people would understand that although it affects us painfully that an access to the sea for a nation of 32000000 Poland should cut through Ger man territory it is unreasonable to deny such a great nation that access It is unsound statesmanship to attempt change by force because such an attempt would inevitably create an atmosphere of pressure and counterpressure Family of Nations Europe after all is a family of nations and it cannot be imagined as otherwise Any attempt to solve European problems otherwise than with calm reason would lead to regrettable reactions Hitler vigorously denied that the socalled German question con sisted of an alleged love of war by the German people a dormant in tention to attack or a devilish clev erness in outwitting her oppon ents One German question consists in something quite different he de clared No Less Industrious been an audible roar of weapons in stead of a ringing of peace bells Who can wonder if from such tragic disappointment the confidence of the nations in the justice of the or der of things was shaken and seems to fail in so catastrophic a man ner Der fuehrer drew a vividpicture of religious economic human and political revolutions which he said had ensued since 1918 referring especially to the Russian revolution We are not to be blamed for this development because it was not within our power or ken to give the world ideals or even laws of life after our terrible breakdown and at a time of humiliation and de fensive maltreatment he said Sees Roaring Folly Describing previous treatment of Germany by other nations as roar On very limited not everywhere fertile soil some 67000000 people are living That is about 136 per square kilometer These people are no less indus trious than other European peoples but they are also no less desirous of the good things of life They are no less intelligent but they are also no more cowardly and under no circumstances are they less honorable than members of other European peoples Hitler contended that indecent elements 10 longer were within Germany but living mostly as emi grants with some international host Pleading for Germany to have a share in the worlds buying and selling Hitler stated emphatically Need No Special Aid The German people need no spe cial aid for maintaining their iife They merely wish to havo no less favorable chances than those af forded other nations Herein lies the one German question To master this question he de clared Germany must posses a feel ing of political equality and with that one of political security The man who desired to save Germany from Bolshevism had necessarily also to bring about a decision for solution of the question of Germanys equality with other nations he declared This fight for German equality which I have conducted for three years isnot a raising of a European question but it is a solution He said he regarded it as a tragic misfortune that the French people believed it to be to their interests to adhere firmly to the provisions of Versailles Used o Inequality The restitution of Germanys equality Hitler said wag especial ly difficult because Germanys neighbors had become so used to her inequality will be the
