NAZIS PREPARE TO RESUME WAR
Hitler Ultimatum Friday; Berlin Anticipates Rejection
ALL AVAILABLE GERMAN TROOPS RUSHED TO WEST
Hitler to Personally Overtake Warsaw; Address Reichstag Friday Noon
BERLIN (UP) -- Hitler flew to Warsaw Thursday to take over the Polish Capital in the name of his Nazi Reich. He was expected back Thursday night to complete the draft of a speech he proposed to make at noon tomorrow before the Nazi Reichstag and in which was expected he would deliver a 'peace ultimatum' to Great Britain and France to stop the European war.
Meanwhile Germany is reported rushing in available troops and warplanes to the western front in anticipation of the Western Allies’ rejection of the last 'concrete peace proposal' which the fuehrer will announce in a speech to the Reichstag Friday noon.
Within the next two or three days, it was said, the greater part of Field Marshall Hermann W. Goering’s air force that engulfed Poland would be poised in the West, awaiting Hitler’s word to unleash devastating attacks.
The order from Hitler, according to well-informed Nazis, would depend entirely upon the reaction of Great Britain and France to his Friday speech.Travelers arriving from the West told of long trains and motor convoys moving westward. Tens of thousands of troops were said to be moving into positions in the west wall of fortifications.
