—By Joseph W. L «lnf—
office in Fleet street, Pub-
aoffrey Dawson decided that
_ was the better part of val-
or. Next morning his London Ttajef
put hi black and white what Eng-
land's conservative Cliveden set has
tfcooght all along: That Britain had
best let Adolf Hitler cede Czecho-
slovakia's Sudeten-territory if no
other settlement would satisfy him.
, Kor did Der "Fuehrer appear con-
itent with anything less. While nerv-
«us france proteste<L«>ch an idea
tnd .rushed troops into her amazing
Maginot line like gophers rush to
their holes, all eyes converged pent
on London or Prague, but. on Nur-
emberg where the Nazi party was
holding its annual congress and
• There, Chancellor Hitler found the
spotlight's rays pleasantly warm. In
the first of his eight speeches he
made clear Germany's determina-
tion to be supreme in southeast Eu-
rope, .To Czechoslovakia these were
frightening words. Immediately Su-
deten Leader Konrad Henlcin was
handed the "fourth and final" list of
concessions which he rushgd tin-
He wouldn't go home. ■
Opened to Nuremberg. Same eve-
ning Fuehrers Hitler and Henlein
-opened them, found satisfaction .for
every demand except (1) establish-
ment of a one:unit government" for
Sudetens sund (2) freedum for prac-
tice .of Nazi ideology.
Prage's concessions might have
• been sufficient a.week earlier, but
shrewd Adolf Hitler now saw a
chance to take the whole hog. Brit-
ain, anxious to aVoid war at all cost,
had capitulated, unofficially admit-
ting she was willing*to sell Czecho-
slovakia <lawn "the rivei. And by
midnight another unexpected joy
had developed, so imporlaet that
Konrad Henlein was sent scurrying
back home with orders tc hold out
for complete surrender, .
At Maehrisch-Ostrau, m .Sudeten
territory, Gigch mounted policemen
had horsewhipped a noisy crowd,
striking a Sudeten legislator on
shoulders. While-ap.-'ngptic Pragyg.,
hastened its investigation, the in-
r-offcrcd KonidU Henlein a new
- chance tcr play the role of martyr.
Next day, with all odds tff'his fa-
vor, Der Fuehrer could afford to
assure the world of his peaceful in-
tentions. While Nuremberg's show
continued, he received Germany's
foreign diplomatic corps, including
France's Andre Francois-Pontet
who .suggested: "Democracies, ,„are .
not exactly lauded at the Niifem-
berg congress, but their emissaries
usually feel welcome."^ Answered-
expansive Adolf Hitler: "I hope to
continue to make the jamhassadors
feel welcme, and I also hope that
during my regime no mother will
have cause for wet eyes on account
of any °* mine."
4 Moil foreign envoys left after the
reception, but _aot Britain's Sir
Neyile Henderson. He-stuck around
like a guest who won't go home,
trying to corner either Der Fuehrer
or Foreign Minister Joachim vop
Ribbentrop. If he succeeded, Ger-
many would learn that Geoffrey
Dawson was only fooling, that Bri-
tain still ineant business.
