The territory in question, which coincides with the Italian province of   
Bolzano, has an area of 2,735 square miles and a total population (1936)  
 of 278,000.  In the census of 1921 ( the last cnesus in which the   
inhabitants were listed according to language), out of a total   
population of 244,000 there were 189,000 Germans and 34,000 Italians or   
Ladin-speaking inhabitants.  Many Germans, apparentlly about 100,000,   
were moved to Germany after an Italian-German agreement and plebiscite   
in 1939.  Since the surrender of Italy, however, German administration   
has been established in this territory, which is probably still   
            predominantly German in population.             
27. KLAGENFURT AREA.--Yugoslavia claims the Klagenfurt basin, roughly to   
the boundary of Styria and including the cities of Villach, Volkermarkt,   
and Klagenfurt.  This area remained under Austria sovreignty in 1920  
after a plebiscite in the southern portion resulted favorably for   
The territory involved has an area of about 1,000 square miles and a   
total population of some 250,000, of whom only 27,000, according to   
         the Austrian census of 1934, are Slovenes.         
28.  YUGOSLAV-HUNGARIAN BORDERLANDS, including Prekomurje, Medjumurje,   
Baranja, Bachka and the Yugoslav Banat.  These areas were ceded to   
Yugoslavia by Hungary in the Treaty of Trianon, June 4, 1920.  Since the   
defeat of Yugoslavia in 1941 all but the Banat have been occupied by   
Hungarian forces.  The Banat is now a part of the puppet state of Serbia   
     and is administered by the local German minority.      
These districts have an area of 7,987 square miles and a total poulation   
of approximately 1,535,000 persons.  According to the census of 1921,   
there were 670,000 Serbo-Croats, 393,000 Magyars, 321,000 Germans and   
            68,000 Rumanians in this territory.             
29. RAAB SALIENT.--Yugoslavia has claimed on ethnic grounds a small area   
of about 50 square miles on the upper Raab River where Hungarian   
territory forms a salient between Yugoslavia and Austria.  The   
        population is not more than a few thousand.         
30. HUNGARIAN-CZECHOSLOVAK FRONTIER ZONE.-- This area was ceded by   
Hungary to Czechoslovakia in the Treaty of Trianon, June 4, 1920.  Some   
                of the parts indicated were
