Adelaide Hitler s dramatic Call to germans Rhineland Issue is Pivot of sunday s poll London. Saturday. More than 45 million germans Are expected to vote at the Reich Stag elections tomorrow. The poll is being held so that the people May endorse the Hitler government s military Iwvin Isif inn of the Rhineland in Defiance of the Versailles and Locarno treaties. To foreign observers it is an Alice in wonderland election because there is Only one party the nazis in the Field and any other vote than yes invalidates the ballot paper and threatens the voter with loss of citizenship on the surround of disloyalty. As the 400,000 jews in Germany Bare been disfranchised it is reasonable to suppose following the intensive spectacular propaganda of the last three weeks that the vote will indicate at least a 90 per cent endorsement of the govern ment s foreign policy. Every 60,000 voters can return one member to the Reich Stag which under the nazi regime has no Powers and invariably approves with cheers. And measures submitted to it. There is Only one ballot paper which does not provide for a negative vote against the list of nazi candidates. It merely bears circles in which the voters Are expected o place crosses in approval of the nazi candidates and of her Hitler s dolby. I therefore it is easy to understand Why a 90 per cent pro Hitler vote is anticipated especially As the franchise age. Has been lowered to allow 20year old storm troopers to vote. I emerging for once from their eclipse by the regular army the nazi Brown shirts will Parade the streets tomorrow Shepherd voters to the poll and arouse enthusiasm for the Fuhrer to fever pitch. Nevertheless socialists and communists at the risk of Liberty possibly of life Are Subt erroneously distributing millions of anti nazi pamphlets urging the people to vote no though the methods of recording a negative vote Short of invalidating the ballot papers Are not explained. High pressure propaganda Hitler s propaganda minister or. Goebbels has eclipsed himself in High pressure propaganda. This includes special films continuous wireless speeches from loud speakers in the main streets and Rural Highway newspaper articles a display of ban ners on houses and in shop windows stickers on taxi windows flags and posters on motor cars lorries full of slogan singing nazis River barges with bands and streamers and Housetop House canvassing by nazi leaders. There will be a nation wide Demon stration of mass Unity starting this afternoon with hoisting of Swastika flags and lasting until the polls close tomorrow. A huge picture of Hitler extinguishes the entire front of one Large building in Berlin. Proclamations Are displayed thank ing the Fuhrer for everything while everybody of the slightest importance Siens letters to the newspapers extol Ling Hitler s supremacy As the father of his country. Churches and Chambers of com Merce swell the Triumph of his train. The girl skating Champion expresses the firm belief that hit Ler was sent by god to Iffie and die for the germans who will lire and die for him. This probably does not exaggerate the sentiments of millions of germans or of Hitler himself. Many in fear and trembling nevertheless the times correspondent in Berlin tre chantly comments that the work of the Hitler regime has been done at the expense of Freedom Justice and truth As conceived by the Western world. Moreover Many germans who feel patriotically bound to support Herr Hitler will do so in fear and trembling belie Rinz that Thev Are delivering the fatherland to a new wave of nazi fanaticism. The daily Telegraph s Berlin Cor respondent records an undercurrent of weariness among the older people door. Whom the spectacle has begun to Dall. The incessant theatrical to resembling Don Quixote s oust against windmills. Other sources report the sudden re Moval from the streets of the numerous red frames containing copies of die Sturmer the most venomous anti semitic journal in Germany. These have been replaced by notices. Our desire is peace nevertheless lest the jews should at Tach undue importance to this Laud Able sentiment the secret police de Clare that any jew who has left Ger Many since Hitler came into Dower will be arrested if he returns for the pass Over holidays. Defiant talk by Gen. Goering Herr Hitler yesterday made another typical election speech this time at the great Essen armament Plant of Krupps. He declared that he wanted to re store the Sanctity of treaties on a basis of Honor and Equality for Germany. Germany had no interest in France and Belgium and denied the right of those countries to interest themselves in Germany. Referring to the London negotiations Herr Hitler said i shall submit new proposals. If other nations repeat their gestures i Hope they will be decent enough to ask their people As we Are doing for an endorsement. I Hope if they reject our suggestions that they will receive a reply. Do not talk and Mako gestures but go on with peace Defiance of the Locarno Powers Britain. France. Belgium and Italy was indicated in an election speech last night by the air minister Gen. Goering. If you Are awaiting the concessions you Are thinking of. You will wait until doomsday he declared. Does or. Eden think that we i Are the same As previous German governments which always said All right go ahead be asked. Protests have a meaning Only when backed by bayonets. The ver i Sailles treaty would have been in 1 possible had we had Hitler in 1918. We cannot longer be fettered by its i chains. Jews Are always with the Bol 1 sheiks on the anti German front.

He feels confident that he can make the 24,000 Miles approximately first Girdle flight of the world in three weeks averaging More tha. 1,000 Miles in the air each Day. This plan for the greatest air performance of All time had its genesis two weeks ago in a taxi on the Way to the Mascot drome when Mollison was discussing Long distance flights which remained to be done.
