antiGerman unrest accompanied by actual un dercover condition which casts further light on HW Hitlers anxiety to biing that country into the nazi fold and tain the cooperation of the gen eral public One suspects that the fuehrer is beginning to find truth 1 In the olA Chinese adage that 5fwho rifles a Ber finds It difficult to dismount The nazi chief has plowed large portion of Euiope under with his mighty warmachine without much opposition He probably will plow moie under for it would be stupid not to xec ogmze the terrific power which he wields But in every instance where he has occupied a country by loree he has found that while he could break physical resistance he couldnt destroy the spirit of the nation as a whole The situation in Prance js symptomatic of that existing in other parts of occupied potential danger of vast proportions This can only he kept inTiand by armed overlordship and that will be increasingly true as the conqutred countries lecov er from tbe shock of assault Hitlers new order Is cal culated to take care of that If he can It to functioning while bombs still fall and priva tion flaps about over Europe JUwa I at Iunderstand that there has been a lemarkable undercurrent change of sentiment in France in iccent weeks As you know the countiy was utterly smashed by its terrible military defeat and at that time there was much bitter ness against the British a flame fed eagerly by the Germans be cause of a rather widespread feeling that the Fiench had been let down by their ally Thut feeling has undeigone much change although there still is an antiBritish paity which may be said to be lepiesented by VicePiemier Laval who has pro claimed that he believes demo cracy is dead in all countries and is working overtime to swing France into the nazi camp Only Thursday Roy P Porter an As sociated Press correspondent re ported in a Paris dispatch that Juring an interview he received he definite impression from the French leader that he earnestly desired the defeat of England However there has been a widespread shift o sentiment in favor of Entland This has been due mainly to the determined and successful British resistance Germanys failure lo launch the muchadvertised invasion of England and the material sup Port which the United States has been affording Britain Theie is strong backing for Gen eral de Gaulle the Frenchman who organized the committee free Frenchmen in London to aid England British Premier Churchill has promised time and again that victory for England means restoration for France and this undoubtedly has had
