Germany Not Likely To Seize"
Czechuslovakia, Slosson 'Says
Despite Militant Speech By
Nazi Leader, Euroean
By JACK DAVIS
Nazi sword-rattling in Czechoslo-
vakia, culminated by Konrad Hen-
lein's militant speech Sunday in
which he demanded sweeping conces-
sions for Sudeten Germans, is not
likely to be backed up by the Reich's
troops in the near future Prof. Pres-
ton W. Slosson of the history depart-
ment declared' yesterday.
Henlein, leader of the Nazi party
in Czechoslovakia, warned of ,"war
from within or without" yesterday
as he insisted upon autonomy and
complete equality with the Czechs
for the 3,500,000 Germans.,
Despite the tension created by
Henlein's speech, the general Euro-
pean uneasiness makes it unlikely
that Germany will attempt a military
coup at this time, Professor Slosson
pointed out. Hitler unquestionably is
not at the moment desirous of pro-
voking an aroused France and Rus-
sia any further and continued ag-
gression, treading so closely on the
Austrian annexation, is too danger-
ous, too fraught with the possibilities
of a European war, Professor Slosson
More likely Henlein's speech is
part of Hitler's studied plan to keep
pressure upon the Czechoslovakian
government and force concessions for
the Nazis from within. Such a pol-
icy coupled with economic penetra-
tion will make the job of prying off
the German portion easier when the
European diplomatic stage is ready,
Professor Slosson said.
Equally significant in a considera-
tion of Czechoslovakia's destiny, he
declared, is a Budapest -dispatch
which reports that 20,000 Hungarians
demanded dismemberment of Czech-
oslovakia at a mass meeting Sunday.
Rumors are current that Germany
is seeking to clamp down upon the
Prague government from another
angle by inciting 1oland and Hun-
gary to unite with the Reich in par-
titioning Czecholslovakia, he said.
It is claimed that under such a
scheme Germany would take Bo-
hemia and MozhWia, the western
fringe of which contains the moun-
tain passes defending Czechoslovakia.
These two provinces have been the
back-bone of post-war Czech pros-
perity and include rich agricultural
and industrial districts as well as
the important Skoda munitions
works. To Poland would go the small
but important industrial district of
Teschen, while Hungary would get
the plains of Slovakia.
But a general European conflict
would almost inevitably result from,
any such attempt to divide' Czecho-
slovakia, with France and Russia
probably on the side of Czechoslo-
vakia, and Hungary on the side of
Germany, Professor Slosson stated.
