Expect Statement On
Partition Of Poland Also Expected
To Be Discussed By Hitler
Berlin. Sept. 30 (AP) — The Reichstag, called only to hear Reichsfuehrer Hitler give an exposition of his policies, was summoned today to meet "in the coming week."
The Reichstag last met Sept. 1 and heard the Fuehrer proclaim himself "the First soldier of the Reich" just before he plunged into Poland behind the Nazi legions which since have ended the eastern republic's existence.
The announcement that the Reichstag would meet, again said only it would "hear a declaration of the government."
It was assumed this time it would hear a statement on the partitioning of Poland. German-Soviet Russian relations and the stand toward Great Britain and France in their war against Germany.
