This afternoon he was receiving accompanying reporters ic his Hyds Park study for the Tues- day press conference. There -were suggestions that the President might make some observations on the troubled state of world affairs and the increasing trend abroad toward Fascism. In advance of today's press con- ference, where President Roosevelt will be directly interrogated on his reaction to Britain's cabinet n't and Hitler's bold statement of Nazi expansion plans, the temporary VThite House continued to best back all inquiries with the set an- swer.

Believing his Austrian coup and his Reichstag- speech Sunday have given him the upper hand in the diplomatic catch-as-eatch-can same, the Reichsfuenrer was repre- sented as being- confident he- can now extract from the British at least some of the concessions he wants. A provisional understanding for the progressive return of Germany's prewar colonies would constitute not only such a concession but insisting that the Ger- man minority problem is a domestic issue which only the league of Na- tions is "qualified to handle." Nazi circles made no. effort to conceal conviction that intensiOed j German pressure will soon convince i Prague that the minority question is not a but a German- Czech issue.
