Unless additional candidates are BERLIN, March 10 —(U.E)— Fuehrer Adolf Hitler, angered by the calling of a plebiscite on Sunday to determine the future of Nazism in Austria, consulted with his advisors tonight on a possible course of direct action. Officials of the third Reich asserted flatly that Germany will refuse to recognize any vote against “Anschluss’’ (Austro-German union) because the plebiscite is an outright anti-Nazi maneuver on the part of Chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg. The Essen National Zeitung, organ of Field Marshall Hermann Wilhelm Goering, asked tonight who Schuschnigg’s “advisors” were in his decision to hold the plebiscite. REICH UNINFORMED “None is able to say what men behind the scenes induced Schuschnigg to take this step—it is all the more surprising that Schuschnigg, notwithstanding the Berchtesgaden agreement, failed to inform the Reich government of his plans,” the newspaper said. There were reports from Rome that Premier Benito Mussolini knew In advance of Schuschnigg’s plan and consented to it. Many observers believed that Hitler, during the next 24 hours, might direct a demarche to Vienna protesting against the plebiscite. MORE DISORDERS POSSIBLE Such a decision on der Fuehrer's part undoubtedly would stir thousands of Austrian Nazis to even greater disorders than those reported from Vienna and other Austrian communities tonight. It wTas conceivable, these observers said, that Schuschnigg’s defiance of a German demarch might ultimately lead to Hitler’s renunciation of his Feb. 12 "peace of Berchtesgaden” with Schuschnigg and throw down the gauntlet for what might easily become a state of rev- clanged through the streets amid olution in Austria. j the din of the disorders.

Britain's Hope For Pact Fades Chancellor Schuschnigg's Austrian Test Vote Threatens Neville Chamberlain's Proposed Great Britain-German Friendship LONDON, March 10 — (U.P.) — Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s hope for a pact of friendship with Germany collapsed tonight, for the present at least, under the impact of Chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg’s bold move in calling a plebiscite to test the future of Naziism in Austria. --•* The breakdown, admitted in in- . _ I formed quarters, came as German Nazis Spread Terror in Vienna Riots Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop conferred with Foreign Secretary Viscount Halifax at the foreign office while Communists and anti-Nazis swarmed in the streets outside shouting “down with !

Rumors of a putsch, reminiscent of the Nazi uprising and assassination of Chancellor Engleburt Doll-fuss in the summer of 1934. brought troops and police reserves rushing to the chancellory when Chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg—staking his career and perhaps his life on the plebiscite—debated the necessity of martial law. deal with Fuehrer Adolf Hitler which might upset the more vital project of an Anglo-Italian pact of friendship.

Two German-made scientific pictures will portray an appendix operation and the mending of a broken knee cap. Lung surgery will be shown in color in an American film JEWS TERRORIZED Terror was added to the brawling when between 5,000 and 6.000 Nazis, defying the government by wearing stormtroop uniforms and flaunting Swastika emblems, invaded Vienna's Leopoldstadt ghetto shouting “Jud-ah, hop the twig!”—meaning.

To vote against, ‘no” must be written in and “yes” crossed out. Ribbentrop encountered a far stiff er Brittish attitude than he had anticipated, due in part to rising anti-Nazi sentiment among the British people and the blunt refusal of several British dominions to consent to any colonial concessions to Germany as a means of laying a foudation of peace. Germany’s first demand, listed even above the colonial demands, was one that certain sections of the British press cease their anti-Nazi CASTILLEJO TO LECTURE Spanish War Problem* Will Be Discussed NAZIS CAUSE RIOT nominated from the floor today in and students already enrolled in the a special nominating assembly, three school.
