The settlement of Germany’s southern frontier raised two important questions at Paris: the German-Czech boundary and whether to permit the union of the Austrian and the German Republics. The protests of the Bohemian Germans were dismissed as the product of a noisy, Pan-German minority. The numerous, ‘reasonable’ German peasants, industrialists, and workers ‘who are aware of the real political and economic necessities of the situation’ were ready, it was alleged, quietly and fearlessly to remain within Czechoslovakia. The Commission on Czechoslovak Affairs was authorized to consult representatives of the peoples concerned. In questions affecting the German-Czech frontier, the Commission consulted Czechs but not representatives of the German Bohemians. Both the British and French members claimed that they had received almost no indication of German opinion in Bohemia. The Commission on Czechoslovak Affairs, on March 13, approved the sub-committee’s recommendations on Glatz, Schmiedeberg, and Reichenberg. Charles Seymour maintained his delegation’s position on Eger and Rumburg.
