Is Asked By Fey
(By The Associated Presst
While an estimated 20,000 Nazis
paraded through Graz, Austria, last
night, Germany's Field Marshal Her-
mann Wilhelm Goering warned that
the Reich's air force was ready to
protect the "ten millions of Germans
on our borders."
Raising his voice to a high pitch,
the Marshal said, "And if the Fuehrer
used those proud words that we no
longer can tolerate the maltreatment
with impunity of ten millions of Ger-
mans on our borders, then you mem-
bers of the air force know that if need
be you must go the limit to make good
those words of the Fuehrer." Goer-
ing's speech, commemorating the
third anniversary of the air force, was
broadcast and also released verbatim
for foreign consumption.
Warning To CzechsE
His statements were taken not only
as a warning to Czechoslovakia and
Chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg of Aus-
tria, but also to Premier Camille
Chautemps 'of France, who has been
upheld in his stand to support Czecho-
In Austria, the demonstration was
a welcome to a visit from Arthur

Minister of Interior. Authorities made
no attempt to resist the celebration.
Fey Calls Heiiwehrt
Meanwhile Major Ermuil 'Fey, former
Vienna chieftain of the Heimwehr,
the disbanded private army of Franz
Ernst Rudiger von Starhemberg,
called on former members of the or-
ganization to join in fighting "for the
administration and for Austria."
Another faction entered the picture
when it was annoUnced that thou-
sands of peasants under Josef Reiter,
former Minister of Agriculture, were
planning a rally to show their sup-
port to Chancellor Schuschnigg. Other
groups were asked to demonstrate in a
