Reporting the state of the Swedish army, the Neuc Zlircher Zeitung writes: Sweden has disarmed to a large extent since the War. Now, however, the heads of the Army and Navy have addressed an urgent appeal to the heads of the Socialist administration to strengthen the armed resources ef the country. Premier Hansson declared, however, that. he did not think it. would be necessary to introduce supplementary estimates for increased armaments. Nevertheless, he said, the government was following with the greatest attention the grave situation in Europe, and is ready to take action should it be deemed necessary. Hansson stated that the naval programme had actually been speeded up and there is no need at present to take further measures in this direction. The Navy had no right to assume a place of importance as the emphasis in Swedish defences had to be laid on the Army and the Air Force. liansson assured the Parliament that he would do everything to avoid Sweden being dragged 'uto an artuaramt race.
