Adelaide. Germans March to Rhine pact Defiance causes stir in Europe reported to be acting with Mussolini London. San Nav in Defiance of the Versailes treaty and the Locarno pact German troops marched into the de militarised Rhineland zone Early today. This news has caused great excitement in All the capitals of Europe. It is believed in Geneva that the australian president of the league Council or. Stanley Bruce will summon an extraordinary meeting of the league Council for monday. French circles Are disturbed by an unconfirmed report from Berlin that Germany is acting in agreement with Mussolini who has recently threatened to repudiate the Locarno treaty if Oil sanctions Are imposed against Italy. Before the German army s dramatic March the world s attention had been directed to Berlin where Herr Hitler had suddenly summoned the Reich Stag today to hear his statement on foreign policy following the Franco soviet pact to which the German government had strongly objected. Herr Hitler has invited the British. French and italian ambassadors As representatives of the Locarno Powers to visit him before the Reich Stag meeting. This combination of events leads to the expectation that Herr hitter will especially refer to the position of the Locarno treaty probably clarifying in Advance Germany s attitude to the French request for additional Brijesh guarantees against German Agar Essen in the Rhine. It is also anticipated that he will refer to the Franco soviet pact of Mutual Aid against aggression which will come into operation on March 12, and which has caused much resentment in Berlin. It is believed that Herr Hitler will also refer to the effect of Italy s threat to repudiate the Locarno pact and will declare that he considers Germany is Herb Hitler whose latest move has teased tension in Europe. Herb i whose latest tension of longer bound to respect its provi Sions regarding the demilitarised Rhine land zone. Presumably he will secure the Reich. Stag s authority to denounce Locarno in certain contingencies. Rhineland zone the daily Telegraph s Berlin Cor respondent Points out that the sum Moning of the Reich Stag from where Herr Hitler s speech Grill be broadcast throughout Germany has brought to a Climax the sensational happenings of the last Day or two. He expects that Herr Hitler will de Clare that Germany because of the Franco soviet pact will resume full diplomatic Freedom especially in the Rhineland. Probably this will depend on the degree of Herr Hitler s dissatisfaction at the reception of his somewhat nebulous overtures to France made in an interview with a Paris newspaper last week. If Herr Hitler has not abandoned Hope of direct Franco German negotiations he May restate his offer with the Reich Stags added authority thereby reviving the scheme for a Western european pact excluding Russia on which the German govern ment s hatred is concentrated. It is not expected that in spite of the italian victories in Abyssinia. Herr hitter will propose a new orientation towards Italy. While the abyssinian War continues. Berlin feels that the situation is too unstable for fresh commitments concludes this correspondent army chiefs meet according to the daily mail s Ber Lin correspondent the summoning of the Reich Stag was preceded by a two hour meeting of the minister of air Gen. Goering the War minister Gen. Von Blo Berggen. Von Fri tech com Mander of the army. Admiral Roder commander of the Navy and other officers of High rank. It is possible that the defiant military gesture revealed bythe Rhineland March is intended to impress the nation and consolidate Hitler s Domestic position at the same time presenting the world with an accomplished fact which the German leaders Hope will be accepted without drastic opposition.
