March 18.-Cenlu- rlons Hitler and Mussolini have pro- ceeded far enough in their brother- hood of conquest to make clear the appalling fact that they are out to dominate Ihe old world between them, each having Ms assigned sphere of Influence. Statesmen of other countries have senced for a considerable lime that the dice were being rolled for such a division of power and spoils, but Ihe Idea seemed so utterly fantastic that many of them refused to be- lieve such a thing could happen. Some there were who realized what clicking of the ivories meant. Anthony Eden. Britain's late foreign minister and Sir Galahad of inter- national pollcs. was one of these. 1 He resigned Prime Minis- ter Chamberlain preferred to bar- gain with the dictators rather than ;rack down on them.

It Is quilc apparent that Napoleon has been reincarnated in twins. And there isn't even a single Wellington in sight. So far as the nazi chieftain Is concerned, through his own deeds and fiery speeches, supplemented by the ventrlloqulstlc words he was placed In the mouths of his noisy Charlie MvCarthys' he finally has compelled the chancelleries of Eu- rope to make two and two equal four. His position now is too plain for comfort, and It Is this: He contemplates creation of a vnst and powerful Germanic confedera- tion which will dominate Europe. This Involves annexation of Aus- tria (already Czechoslo- vakia, presumably Danzig and the Polish corridor (perhaps through d deal with Memel and quite likely other territory with German populations on the borders ot the fatherland. Hitler also wants Russia's rich Ukraine. Other countries which he doesn't actually annex, he hopes lo control through Iron-clad economic pacts. Within II Duce's field of opera- tions would be Spain, northern Africa. Egypt, Asia Minor, and at least part of the lower Balkan states Jugoslavia. Bulgaria, Greece and Albania. All this area he is credited with Intending to control In one way or another. Seventeen Schools Enter ACC Journey Annual Contests Begin At 2 P.M.
