But that was not all. Czechoslovakias entire system of rail, road, telephone and telegraph communications was disrupted. According to German figures, the dismembered country lost 66 per cent of its coal, 80 per cent of its lignite, 86 per cent of its chemicals, 80 per cent of its cement, 80 per cent of its textiles, 70 per cent of its iron and steel, 70 per cent of its electric power and 40 per cent of its timber. A prosperous industrial nation was s;lit up and bankrupted overnight.
No wonder that Jodl could write joyfully in his diary on the night of Munich:
The Pact of Munich is signed. Czechoslovakia as a power is out . . . The genius of the Fuehrer and his determination not to shun even a World War have again won the victory without the use of force. The hope remains that the incredulous, the weak and the doubtful people have been converted, and will remain that way.
William L. Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, pp. 421-422
The NFL season is winding down now. I will be reporting on some of the crucial games after Thanksgiving. For some teams I guess the games are not that crucial.
I’m glad she is enjoying them. I’ve found them pretty cool myself. I’m kind of a sucker for the radio shows anyway. Back when I was in high school I could only get KNX at night and about that time they would do the old radio shows for an hour. I used to look forward to that every night listening to shows like The Shadow, The Lone Ranger, amound others.
From next week on I should be able to post it as a direct link to the show too since they have an MP3 format.
Having won eight straight games, Notre Dame should prove to be a formidable foe when they take on USC in the Coliseum in a couple of weeks. However, with the Golden bears breathing down their necks, the Trojans must beat UCLA on Thanksgiving to get to the Rose Bowl. Although they will be tied with Cal for the Pacific Coast Conference championship, the Trojans will likely go to Pasadena if they beat the Bruins, since they defeated the Golden Bears two weeks ago.
UCLA stunned the Trojans with a 7-7 tie on Turkey Day two years ago in a game USC was favored to win. However, the Bruins have never beaten the Trojans since the two teams began playing each other in 1929.
