The two dictators said their Rome-Berlin axis, whose policies of militarized security have contributed to the greatest armament race in history, represented the storng-est assurance of peace in Europe today. LOGIC TO CAUSE CHANGE “The Europe of tomorrow,” said II Duce, "will be Fascist because of the logic of events, not becarse of propaganda. I do not know when Europe will awaken. . . . Secret but well-armed forces are engaged in turning a civil war into a world war.” The one-time Austrian paper-hanger and the son of an Italian blacksmith, now rulers of 115,000,000 people, appeared together on the stage of Berlin's Olympic stadium in a demonstration climaxing Mussolini's triumphal visit to Hitler.

I and Der Fuehrer can answer in loud vfiice—peace! peace! peace!” Hitler, above a burst of heHs, added: “This is no mere meeting, but a manifestation whose aim is to assure peace, peace for nations which are proud of . .. activity and determination.” Mussolini’s speech was the more ROOSEVELT EXPECTS TO BALANCE BUDGET BY JULY, 1938 WITH PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT.
