men are continually rising up against
the Germans in many towns in upper
Silesia. The present events are the re
sult of a deliberate German policy of
oppression and provocation pergurd
In regard to the Polish population. It
is certain fact thct the sternest re
pressive measure will be taken agaast
the rebellious strikers and the insurrec
tion suppressed with a relentless hand.
It can not be expected that the Poles in
Poland will remain quite when people
of their own race are being shot down
continually by the German machine
runs few miles over the border line.
It seems that war between Germany
and Poland Is an Immediate possibility.
