Apt ape. Danger on Rhine grim Effort by league to stave off War i retirement of German troops desired London. Sari Irav a nations Are anxiously awaiting the decision of the league Council. It is now considering in London the grave problem created by the German army s occupation of the Rhineland. Which has thrown the Shadow of War Over Europe. It is believed that much depends on Herr Hitler s response to the demand or the withdrawal of his troops. Even a partial withdrawal would for the time being satisfy Britain and perhaps enable her to persuade France to negotiate rather than resort to military action. According to a despatch received Early today from the times correspondent in Berlin the general View there is that Germany will neither withdraw her troops from the Rhineland nor surrender to a show of Force however overwhelming. Later messages from Berlin report that German Public opinion is apparently being prepared for unpleasant developments. The morning news papers reveal a fatalistic attitude to the league meeting and plead with Britain to enforce a reasonable solution hints arc Given to the Public to i a prep Ferd for sanctions. But the newspapers want the sooth Ameri can states that if they subscribe i to sanctions they May experience unpleasant an unexpected Reper i ens Sions. The w the Gravity of the problem can Hardin be exaggerated. There Are indications that the Locarno Powers other than Germany. ? by air. France. Ita a. And Belgium have not vet agreed on their recon on to the league Council info a of their discussions at several meetings. Representatives of these four Powers 11 meet again tonight further to con Sider the position. Members of the league Council who on january 24 agreed to hold their next meeting away from Geneva Only if the International situation became Calmer found themselves today assembling through a sudden change in the direction of the european crisis. In Queen Anne s stately Crimson and Gilt drawing room at St. James Palace. It was the first league meeting to be held in London since 1922. Events had developed so rapidly since january that the pressing invitations of m. Titu Lesco Rumania and Senor Vasconcellos Portugal to meet in Bucharest and Lisbon respectively were forgotten in the general agree ment that London was the most Desir Able venue for the present session. It is not considered desirable for the Leif fair Council to consider inv Resolution condemning the demilitarisation of the Rhineland unless the next Steps to be taken Hare been agreed upon. Or. Stanley Bruce the australian president of the league Council has received no Reay to his invitation to Germany to Send a representative to the Council meeting. J in spite of the tact that Germany is not a member of the league. Or. Bruce. Had intended to ask her representative to sit at the Counci. Table hoping that it would facilitate a settlement. Secret meetings held in close secrecy the four Locarno Powers met yesterday morning and again last night after which the Fol lowing guarded communique was is sued a Small committee of ministers representing the signatory Powers of the treaty of Locarno continued Dur ing the Day its examination of the situation. As the discussion. Proceeded it was noted with satisfaction that a closer approximation of views had become apparent. The next meet ing of the committee will be held to Morrow at 5 pin it is understood by the daily Tele graph which is usually accurate in forecasting official decisions that the British government is drafting proposals for european peace incorporating All Herr Hitler s suggestions for consideration As soon As a basis for negotiation can be established Between the other Locarno Powers and Ger Many. A majority of British ministers however is insistent that Germany must order a substantial withdrawal of her by Leland forces As a condition for negotiations. France it is gathered is sticking out for a Complete withdrawal and the Strong application of the league Cove Nant indeed the French delegation s Atti Ude has stiffened following the arrival of m. Paul Boncouri who Al ended yesterday s meetings. France persists that it is impossible for her to participate in negotiations with Ger Many until International Law is re established. She is pressing England energetically on this Point. What germans Are asking reporting Germany s no surrender attitude the times correspondent in Berlin says that As the germans see the Rhineland dispute it is a ques Tion of their fundamental rights As a nation. Military action it is believed would mean european disaster and Many germans think that the effect of sanctions would not be much better. Two questions therefore Are being anxiously asked in Berlin firstly whether a German action constituting no military threat to anyone must become a cause for a european War. Secondly can no formula be found whereby Germany can help to regu Larise her position in the Rhineland without being compelled to give Way on a question of Honor British ministers have been further influenced towards the French View Point by a More accurate estimate of the German forces in the Rhineland i than was available yesterday. Reliable sources state that 30.000 regulars marched into the Rhineland at last week end. To these must be added 30,000 men of the labor corps trained in military exercises who it is reported Are being armed and incorporated in the regu a Lars. There Are also in the Rhineland 150.000 storm troopers in Semi military formation Between 8,000 and 10.000 members of the austrian legion exiled austrian nazi Sand a number of motor car units. Meantime an unconfirmed report by the daily mail s Cologne correspondent says that All the German artillery in the Rhineland has been removed 10 Miles farther from the Frontier. Sanctions now feared Hen Hitler says the Manchester guardian s Berlin correspondent had banked too much on a repetition by the league of the mild protests which Fol Lowed German re armament and the introduction of conscription last year. I the possibility of sanctions to punish his Rhineland Advance has proved an unpleasant Surprise for Germany is less Able to resist them than was Italy. While there is no doubt that Britain is moving to the French viewpoint largely As a result of the realisation that failure to take a firm line with a treaty breaker would discredit eng land in the eyes of the world especially of America French commentator consider that Britain still has a Long Way to go. Pertinak a political writer in Echo de Paris declares i am unable to report any Promise by England of Strong efficacious action. Too much importance must not be attached to the reported approximation of views. Another correspondent Points out that sanctions against Germany would be impracticable As certain countries for instance Yugo Slavia and Den Mark Are dependent on Germany to Purchase the bulk of their exports. Italy also would not participate. Certain ports for instance Cherbourg and Southampton could however be close to German liners and the sanctions enforced by Britain and France would be a heavy blow. Soil a Paris daily suggests a boy Cott of the olympic games from which Germany Hopes to obtain 14 million pounds of foreign Money. This would Deal a heavy blow to Germany s Fin ances and prestige. The president if the French National sports committee tap that unless the circumstance Chance. France will certainly be unable n participate in the games. However he Hopes that Situa Tion will Chance for the better before August. Earlier cables on Page 3. St. James Palace London where the league Council is meet ing today.
