LONDON, March 31. (Ed.
L. Keen, U. P Staff Correspond
ent) The "Hapsbursr Peril," is
reflected in all Europe today.
Throughout the continent
there are hasty conferences on
the attempt of former Emperor
Karl to return to the Hungar
ian throne. Military actions by
the outside nations is a possibil
ity. Karl's success, it is believ
ed, would be the signal for a
wholesale release of noble ex
iles from Switzerland and per
haps even the return of a Ho
henzollern to Germany, which
is now in a turmoil. King Con
?antine's successful appeal to
the people was believed to have
brought aboutKarl's speetacu
lar effort to reinstate himself.
The evidence here is that -Karl
i is keenly disappointed that his
return to Hungary had not re
sulted in an instantaneous up
rising by his people. Even aft
er the private conferences
wherein he was shown that the
time was not ripe for his return,
he persisted. His first effort '
was to obtain the support of
General Baron Eehar, corns
mander of the west Hungarian
forces. "I have sworn allegi
ance to the Horthy govern
ment,' the baron replied. "I
must keep my oath as a soldier.'
Karl then arranged a confer
ence with Admiral Horthy him
self. ' Horthy was respectful
but firm. Karl, with the as
sumption of his old authority.
I told the new Hller that his
choice lay between the king
and the nation," Horthy re
plied. "Only parliament can.
decide whether Hungary is
again to become a monarchy."
