MOSCOW, July 22.-(P)-The pos-
sible significance of the resumption
of Russian-German trade negotia-
tions against the background of lag-
ging negotiations for a British-
French-Russian mutual assistance
pact became the center of discussion
today in diplomatic circles.
Most observers, however, were cau-
tious about making any predictions
concerning the trade development,
it was announced last night.
There seemed to be a disposition
to wait to see whether trade negotia-
tions with Berlin represented a new
trend in Soviet policy or whether
the announcement they were resumed
was a gentle warning to London and
Paris to conclude a mutual assistance
pact on Moscow's terms without fur-
ther delay.
Meeting May Be Heldr
There was no interview scheduled
today among Premier-Foreign Comn
missar Vyacheslaff Molotoff, British
Ambassador Sir William Seeds, spe-
cial British envoy William Strang
and French Ambassador Paul Emile-
Naggiar, although new instructions
were received from London and Paris
yesterday. It was understood there
might be a meeting tomorrow. '
Meanwhile, those who interpreted
the resumption of Soviet-German
trade talks as the beginning of a
new phase in eastern European de-
velopments pointed out that Ger-
many at present was in a better po-
sition to supply the Soviet Union
than she was a year ago.
Reich Needs Cotton
The acquisition of the great Skoda'
arms factories of Bohemia, for in-
stance, vastly increased the German
arms export capacity.
Germany also was understood to
be in a better position to ship tex-
tile machinery wanted by Russia.
On the other hand, cotton produc-
tion has been increased greatly in
the USSR'and Germany could use
cotton as well as various Russian
ores and timber.

Danzig Return
To Reich Seen
In Near Future
Citizens Confident Change
Will Be Peaceful; Ten
Armed Poles Arrested
-(IP)-A feeling of confidence that
the Danzig problem would be solved
fairly soon-and solved without war
-grew perceptibly today in the Nazi-
dominated Free City.
All but a few shared the belief that
Danzig would be regained by Ger-
many peacefully but it was impossible
to find a tangible reason formthe new
expectancy which was apparent
everywhere from the Danzig Senate
down to the docks where men said
"It's coming soon."
Danzig authorities asserted ten
armed Polish youths had been ar-
rested last night when they "invad-
ed" the Free City's western frontier.
The youthful prisoners, who said
they had crossed the border unwit-
tingly from a Polish vacation camp,
were surrounded by an angry crowd
at the village of Ochsendorf, officials
said. They were taken off to jail to
prevent trouble.
Danzig Nazi optimism. about re-
turn to the Reich seemed to have
been inspired by a hint from Berlin
but no one in official circles would
admit that was the case.
Their confidence that the change
would be accomplished peacefully was
emphasized by the newspaper Vor-
posten, which said "The word war
never has been injected into the Dan-
zig question by Germany.
"The German demand that Danzig
must be restored to the ReichW with-
out war is a firm political reality.
There can be no change of attitude
on this question."

Baltic Nations
Reject Offers
Of Assistance
Latvia, Estonia, Finland
Fear Soviet Aggression;
Trust Own Neutrality
Three - Power Pacts
Shunned In Advance
RIGA, Latvia, July 22.-(P)-A
flood of suspicion, distrust and re-
sentment has been aroused in Latvia,
Estonia and Finland over reports
that British-French-Soviet negotia-
tors are considering "guarantees" to
the Baltic countries providing auto-
matic assistance in event of direct
or indirect attacks upon them.
Rejects Guarantee
Jealous of their independence and
proud of their national existence,
these three countries, which were
carved out of Russian territory after
the World War, look toward Mos-
cow like determined small bulldogs..
In advance they reject any guaran-
tees such as Soviet Russia is report-
ed to have demanded as part of her
price for entering a mutual assis-
tance pact with France and Britain.
They fear that Russian aid would
mean Russian reoccupation of their
"We are neutral and intend to stay
neutral," leaders of the three nations
say. "We do not want guarantees
from anybody and we are prepat ed
to defend our neutrality if neces-
Though there are variations in
their political and geographical po-
sitions, there is thorough agreement
on one point-if Finland, Latvia and
Estonia want or need assistance they
prefer to ask for it, not have it thrust
upon them.
Situation Seems Impossible
Their view is that such guarantees
as Moscow is said to desire would give
the Soviets the virtual privilege of
deciding when and if neutrality of
the three little nations is threatened
and of acting accordingly. Such a.
situation is impossiblein the Baltic
view and would be resisted to the

Call Proves False
JERUSALEM, July 22.-(P)-Bri-
tish troops, warplanes and police
prepared tonight to seek Rev. Gerould
R. Goldner, kidnaped Ohio pastor, as
failure to contact his Arab abductors
diminished hope for ransoming of
the American.
United States Consul - General
George Wadsworth said action was
being taken to launch the search
probably tomorrow in the Moab hills,
wherethe 29-year-old Mogadore, O.,
preacher has been held since Tues-
Search Is Fruitless
The latest disappointment came to-
night when a search of the Bethle-
hem countryside, touched off by an
anonymous telephone call from Beth-
lehem, proved fruitless.
The message from Bethlehem said
the Arabs were ready to release the
American, but Bedouin tribesmen
were unable either to trace the call
or to find any clue to the where-
abouts of the kidnap band.
A. A. Miller of Sioux City, Ia.,
general secretary of the Y.M.C.A. in
Jerusalem, said the. failure of this
lead destroyed hopes of establishing
contact with Goldner's abductors be-
fore morning.
Negotiations Attempted
The pastor, who has a wife and
child in Cleveland, was kidnaped
Tuesday and his father, Dr. Jacob
Goldner, Cleveland pastor who was
captured at the same time, was sent
on to Jerusalem to try to raise the
$5,000 demanded as ransom. Aried
search was suspended while friendly
Arabs endeavored to negotiate for
tMe son's release without ransom or
for a smaller sum.
The elder Goldner, who was con-
ducting his son through the Biblical
Holy Land he visited alone 35 years
before, collapsed under the strain
and went to bed at physician's orders
just as he was preparing to seek the
kidnap band himself.
"I am confident my son is safe and
will be released shortly," the father
But Wadsworth intensified efforts
to establish whether the young man
was alive. He carried his appeal to
Mustafa Bey Khalidi who was mayor
of Jerusalem before Turkey sur-
rendered the city to the British on
Feb. 9, 1917.

In this play, Shaw takes the story

formative character.

the Near East. It is the center of
impact of three great generations.
Near the Red Sea is the Moslem
Mecca, and there also is Jerusalem,
religious center for both the Chris-
tians and the Jews. Besides the great
wealth of religious and cultural tra-
dition, the Near East offers, it also
presents serious contemporary prob-
lems for consideration."

'Most Successful Surgeon' Gets
Almost Nothing For Operations

"One of the world's most success-
ful surgeons is Dr. Paul W. Harrison.
He has practiced for 28 years and
the most he ever asked for a major
operation was $15.00. For a perfect
cataract operation that might bring
a bill of $1,000 from a New York spe-
cialist, Dr. Harrison usually asks
$1.85. If he is lucky, he gets 37 cents.
Thus does Jerome Beatty start his
description of Dr. Paul Harrison in
his article, "Desert Doctor," which
appeared in the "American Maga-
zine" of October,'1938, and later in
'fReader's Digest." Dr. Harrison will
visit Ann Arbor in conjunction with
the Conference on Religion and will
give his first lecture in this country
since his return this summer on the
"Romance of Arabia" at 8 p.m. to-
morrow in the Rackham Auditorium.
The "desert doctor" is known the
length of the Persian Gulf for his
services, of healing to the Arabs. He
is known internationally both as a
surgeon and as a missionary and
traveller. In the United States he
has proven a popular speaker before
service, educational, church and al-
most every tyne of 'audience.
