    Full titles read: "THE PRIME MINISTER SPEAKS ABOUT 'ENCIRCLEMENT'"

    Several very good M/S's of the Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain giving a speech in Cardiff, Wales. He says "The real tragedy is that the future of Europe is being poisoned by the propagation of false and unfounded suspicions. For instance the German people are being drenched day and night by the assertion that Great Britain is trying to 'Encircle' her. What a grotesque travesty of the attitude of this country."

    Chamberlain also says that he is resolved ".. to resist changes by force.... I trust that inspite of dangerous possibilities... that the peoples in all countries are aloud for piece, may yet find the patience and the will to achieve it."
