MASON BRIGHT SPOT i ONE 311 YANKEE HOMERS WHIP REDS 7 TO 3 Hitlers Position in i I IT AMERICAN STATE war an navy department folk cant get i of their heads that Herr Hitle p rop oses peace with Bri tain and Franc less b e c a u s hes so peace able than be cause at bottom hes afraid of long war Am they agree tha they believi they discern Adolf Hitler three seriou weaknesses in the Fuehrers po sition not yet very obvious bu likely to become so presently i hostilities drag out long Their theory is that Adolf mus be asking himself these questions 1 Wont Dictator Stalin douhlecross him un his eastern frontier 2 Wont S i gn o r Mussolini Ooublecross him on his south ern border 3 Wont he have increasing discontent to deal with at home unless he disposes of the Anglo French combination In short or der From Hitlers standpoint o course it will be scandalously dir ty work if Stalin does dump him but I find anybody who doesnt cJtisider the soviet leader quite pf it Cant Annoy Joe In fact its pointed out tha Adolf cant be overly pleased witl the RussoGerrnan trend of con ditions already in Poland along the Baltic and in the Balkans Bu whats he going to do about i lie simply cant offord to antagon ize Boss Stalin in the face of the situation on his west front and a sea True it isnt indicated that hes been hammered very hard yet on the west but its predicted that he will be Theres been talk to the effect that France and Britain have been pulling their punches American military men however dont pay much attention to it They say it takes a bit of time to get three or four million Franco British troops into action Nazis Back Door The AngloFrench back door into Germany disregarding the Siegfried line is through north ern Italy Italy doesnt stand to profit from a German triumph What ever Der Fuehrer gets hull keep possibly somewhat at Benitos expense Let the Ang loFrench on the opposite hand promise the Fascist chieftain part of what he ity in Ethiopia a trifle more of northern Africa a few Mediter ranean islands maybe an ex Germany colony or then what It should be a decided tempta tion to II Duce to sell out to the AngloFrench allies Problem No 3 Weve discussed Adolfs prob lems Nos 1 and 2 Now No 3 German discontent with Hitier ism We hear precious little oE it due to the censorship Nevertheless there are reports that Adolf isnt 100 per cent popular in the Fath erland There appear o be three kinds of Germans 1 Hitlerites 2 Just ordinary Germans like the German Americans we know people 3 The junkers the mili tary aristocracy Theyre war like but theyre the nobility which presumably resents the upstart leadership of a plebeian such as Hitler Between groups Nos 1 and 2 its anybodys guess as to which is predominant If War Continues The state war and navy depart mental reasoning is that if the war strings along Adolf gradually will lose dis couraged Hitlerites that group No 2 will quit him altogether that the junkers literally will be ready to commit suicide in the traditional German fashion Do ing the German is the expression So he needs to gel a on in slang language Can he do it wiggle DERIDE OFFER FROM FUEHRER New Polish Foreign Minister
