Rumours persisted that Hungary also would quit the league of nation. Berlin. Up a foreign minister Konstantin von Neurath in a half hour speech to foreign correspondents today sarcastically challenged the Powers gathered in the arms conference at Geneva to agree on a Mutual disarmament. The minister charged the British foreign office with misrepresenting Germany a attitude to Washington and renewed Germany a pledges to assist in any project for ridding the world of the arms burdens provided Equality for Germany constitutes the basis of such discussions. Herr von Neurath praised the american and the italian representatives for their endeavours the past week to mediate the situation and bring about a relaxation of the tension. Their efforts failed he said because the other Powers tried to erect a United front against Germany. Baron von Neurath received the entire foreign press and discussed Germany a withdrawal from the league of nations and the disarmament conference. He said equal rights a the Cardinal question around which the entire politics of the present Day turns and concerning which the unequivocal answer must be Given is a shall the division of nations into victors and vanquished be externalized or is at last the principle to receive recognition that All state Are members with equal rights of the Community of nations Quot the recognition and realization of this principle is decisive for every form of interns cooperation. A fall statesmen for years have theoretically proclaimed this As a self evident truth but they could not bring themselves to draw the necessary and practical consequences from it. A last saturday it became Clear at Geneva that the German people Are denied Equality in one of the questions supremely affecting its very existence namely National defense. Thereby the Powers destroyed the foundation on which the honest and truthful cooperation of nations alone is thinkable. Discrimination a they thereby deprived Germany of the possibility to participate within the framework of the Geneva institution in discussions of actual International problems. With an evident will to discriminate against Germany on this principle they \ isolated the fundamental idea underlying the league of. Nations and themselves gave evidence that they attach no importance to honest and real cooperation with Germany. I the German people would defame themselves and act dishonest 1> if. Despite this condition of things it attempted to keep up the appearance of such the foreign minister then pointed out to the newspapermen that Equality was demanded by Germany from the moment when the question of her entry into the league was first raised.
