CHIEFS Little Could Be Done in Opposition to Will of Reichwehr BERLIN July 3 reichs wehr or standing army was the real heir today of the situation which developed from Chancellor Hitlers coup against his former as sociates and reactionaries It stands forth as the one instru ment of force on whose support the nazi regime must rest The storm troop organization hated rival of the army is smashed and virtually leatierless The SS or picked guards carry the odium of marching their former brown shirted comrades off to death Little Could Be Done At least it is safe to say that lit tle could be done by Hitler or his right hand man Hermann Wilhelm Goering against the will of the reichswehr Goering has control of the police but undoubtedly remembers thai when Franz von Papen as chancel lor sent a few

command But that pro ject was turned down flatly by Hit ler who already was under pres sure from the army Caused First Spat This caused Hitlers and Roehms first major spat Somewhat later Roehm after a breakdown in srms negotiations at Geneva and Ger manys decision to increase the army from 100000 to 300000 offi cers and men demanded that re cruits for new formations be de rived from the storm troops This move also was blocked Roehm left in a huff and went on leave to Bavaria where he evi dently planned his part in the putsch Many of the stormers were ab solutely loyal to Roehm and were dissatisfied with Hitlers taking sides with the army They were to take an oath of allegiance to Roehm superseding that to Hitler Oklahoma Primary Draws Heavy Vote OKLAHOMA CITY July 3 Pi Heavy voting
