Describing a frenzied hysterical
London populace hoping againstl
hopes for what seemed to be inevit-
ible war, Valentine B. Windt. direc-
tor of Play Productions yesterday de-'
scribed his experiences in Europe;
during the Czechoslovakian crisis.
The incident served to show that
Britain was totally unprepared for
such a situation, Professor Windt
said, and she is now rearming at a
great rate against the possibility of
the recurrence of such a situation.

who had visited Startford-on-Avon,
Malvern and Dublin, to study the

where else possible. It was like living

when I was more

to find if there was any trouble there.
You can imagine how I felt when
the telephone didn't work,
in a country actually at war, Profes-
sor Windt said.
Chamberlain's speech, before his
trip to Munich, was received by a
weeping people. Their reAction when
war was averted was tremendous,
Professor Windt related. A two-day
celebration, reminiscent of the Arm-
