PHONE OFFICIAL DIES DALLAS, Oct. 7—ijp)—John Sidney Burns, 54. tax supervisor of the Southwestern Bell Telephone company, died of a heart attack early today at San .Antonio, Territorial Gains Place Germany's Power at Height (EDITORS NOTE: After the Munich four-power conference Europe began undergoing a political face lifting. In the following dispatch, Webb Miller. European manager of the United Press, reports changes already brought about and indicate* those yet to come.) (Copyright, 193«, By United Pre**.) LONDON, Oct. 7.—(UP)— The international ground-swell which began at Munich last week already has resulted in collapse of the post-war “charter of Europe” established by the victorious allies at Versailles. A completely changed realignment of powers is underway as result of Adolf Hitler's dismemberment of Czechoslovakia.. Both France and Great Britain are courting Italian Premier Benito Mussolini In an effort to win him away from Hitler and weaken the Ber-lin-Rome axis in substance if not In form. REICH POWER AT PEAK Germany’s famous "drang nach osten”—drive to the east—has broken through the shackles which th* allied powers put around the defeated Reich in the Versailles treaty settlement after the World war. Germany has become far more powerful through middle Europe in a political, economic and military sense as a result of absorbing Austria and the Sudetenland— more powerful than she was before the World war. Immediate results of the disintegration of Czechoslovakia include: I. Vital extinction of a barrier of interlocking alliances erected behind Germany by France after the World war as a “projective encirclement" of the Reich. 2. A body blow at the French-Soviet alliance which Is so weakened that it is doubtful It can continue effectively. 3. Serious weakening of the French-Polish alliance, with Poland swinging into the orbit of German influence. SOVIET ISOLATED 4. Progressive disintegration of the French satellite system such as the little entente—Czechoslovakia. Rumania and Yugoslavia— which has largely lost reason for existence. 5. Rapid extension of the German political and economic influence through Middle Europe to the Black sea. with Hungary. Yugoslavia. and Rumania moving into the nazi orbit 6. Isolation of the Soviets from their European connections with Czechoslovakia and France. 7. Augmentation of French diplomatic dependence on Great Britain. Among the first repercussions of I the re-grouping of powers will be France's attempt to repair her fences by rapprochment with T"aly in an effort to safeguard her position in the Mediterranean. Already France is planning to appoint one of her most astute diplomats as ambassador to Rome, Andre Francois Poncet. Both British Prime Minister Ne-fille Chamberlain and French Premier Edouard Daladier have been convinced by the recent crisis that Mussolini had scant appetite for leading his country into an unpopular war to fulfill engagements to Hitler under the Rome-Berlin axis. ITALIAN ACCORD LIKELY They also feel that Mussolini has watched with little enthusiasm as Middle Europe fell into the German orbit. Therefore as their first move they are trying to obtain a counterbalance to the German eastward thrust by coming to terms with Mussolini on recognition of the Italian conquest of Ethiopia and by settlement of the international an- See REALIGNMENT, Pf. 12, Col < The Weather ABILENE and vicinity: Partly cloudv tonight and Saturday.
