therefore are in a po sition to throw overboard the con stitution of the free state as ap proved by the league of nations and tc convert Danzig into an authoritarian state like the reich duke and

the annexation of Danzig by Germany Germany and Poland are bound by a 10 year nonaggression pact and the Poles are certain that Germany will do nothing with reference to Danzig that might alienate Po
