(Released by Western .-. . 1 " lllll.fl law ?gf , ,f ft i V" Following a half-hour conference with Acting Secretary of State Sumner Sum-ner Welles, Japanese Ambassador Klchisaburo la pictured In Washington as he expressed to newsmen the hope that the feeling between the U. S. nd Japan "will become better and better." Later, Welles bad a little different dif-ferent version of the conference. He said he had warned the ambassador that Japan's actions threatened sources of V. S. defense materials and had a direct relation "upon ... our national security." (For other newt tf Japta t btlow: JAPAN: A Chtngt.) JAPAN: A Cliange Japan, following the establishment establish-ment of a new government under the same premier, still rather puzzled puz-zled observers as to what the new regime might have in store for Japan Ja-pan and the world. Summed up by "the man in the street" in Tokyo, who commentators commenta-tors felt was as good a barometer of the mysterious future as any, the new government promised something some-thing like this: , 1. A sterner prosecution of the war with China. 2. Outwardly, at least, no change In the tripartite pact with Germany and Italy; 3. A generally more placatory attitude at-titude toward the United States provided pro-vided this were possible if Japan's aims were carried out 4. A strengthening of Japan's position po-sition In Manchukuo and on the Siberian Si-berian border, but no provocation or forward move against Russia unless the Germans were shown to be positively winning a decisive victory. vic-tory. .. ' tsh-:: 's-".,- . 5. A definite "grab" in the southern south-ern portion of the Pacific front, probably in Indo-China. This last possibility, believed definitely defi-nitely promised since Japan was accusing ac-cusing the British of a similar attempted at-tempted "grab" and hence following follow-ing the old Axis technique of accusing ac-cusing the other fellow of doing what you intend yourself to . do, would, it was feared, definitely involve in-volve the United States. The inclusion of a noted Japanese banker in the cabinet was said to mean a promise that Japan's internal in-ternal house would be put in order, as tar as possible, and hence a move toward Indo-China would be along that line. U.S. Attitude Japan's drive met some real opposition op-position in the attitude of the U. S. government Acting Secretary of State Sumner Welles came out with a statement declaring the occupation of French Indo China was primarily in preparation Sir "more obvious movements of conquest in adjacent areas." He was of the opinion that such moves have a direct bearing on the national security of the United States because they threatened supplies sup-plies of strategic defense materials. He was referring here to supplies of rubber and tin now being obtained ob-tained from the Netherlands East Indies. President Roosevelt added weight to the changing U. S. attitude toward to-ward Japan. He told a civilian defense de-fense group that the United States "had" (he used the past tense) been allowing oil shipments to Japan to make it unnecessary for that nation to go to the East Indies for this supply. He indicated that the policy pol-icy had worked for two years, thus keeping war out of the Pacific region. re-gion.

For instance, the first large blitz raid by planes on Moscow was described de-scribed by the Germans as having ruined the city, particularly the Kremlin. Announcers came on the air the following morning and declared that the raid was much less effective than similar raids the speakers had gone through in England, and that their trips about the city had showed no signs of panic or disaster. The British commission, which earlier had said that the Russian air force had tar from been knocked out of the air, told of German planes shot down, and said that air battles bat-tles they had witnessed showed that the Nazi pilots, in fact the British pilots, did not have as good technique tech-nique as the Russians in clipping off rudders and tail surfaces with machine gun bursts of fire, j It also was apparent that Nazi clams on land, that their forces had completely disintegrated that Russian defense, that Smolensk had been taken and that the invaders were past Kiev and had Leningrad practically surrounded were entirely premature. These maneuvers and triumphs might possibly be carried out but they were some time in the future, those on the ground in Moscow reported, re-ported, and the reports were not entirely the Russian communiques, but the reports, censored, it is true, but nevertheless made by Americans Ameri-cans and British on the scene. SERVICE: And House Chief of Staff General Marshall went before the senate and evidently evident-ly made a deep impression. Presi dent Roosevelt followed this with a request for the passage of legislation legisla-tion declaring a national emergency, emergen-cy, and the sum of these two ap pearances before the upper house was evident in two ways: First an effort by administration leaders to hustle the legislation to a vote. Second, a general upturn of senti ment in favor of the bill. This was one of the oddest con troversies since the World war started. start-ed. The first feeling evidenced when it was hinted that the guards- men and draftees might be kept in service longer than the statutory year was that the selective service people themselves felt it a breach of faith with the drafted men. The next phase came from the selectees themselves, also from the guardsmen. The officers and non-coms non-coms of the latter seemed willing to stay in, but many of the private soldiers among the guardsmen expressed ex-pressed voluble desires to be let out In the midst of this came the announcement an-nouncement that all selectees of 28 and over would be deferred automatically, auto-matically, and the bill to this effect passed the senate by a terrific margin. mar-gin. RELEASE: For Workers It was said in Washington that if any defense manufacturers want some of their skilled workers, already al-ready in the guard or the selective service, released to come back to work, the man to take it up with is Robert T. Patterson, undersecretary of war. The recently announced policy will be that trained workers now in the army may be released when their services are urgently neede.1 in de Open Season (( A fir, , If HvjiX Mm mm It's open season on Beauty Queens again and here is Miss California as chosen at Venice, Ven-ice, Calif where beauty pageant pag-eant which she won was staged.

R.A.F.: Pounding Away There was some sentiment in Moscow, British reports stated, that the Russians, used to enormous land army maneuvers, were wondering won-dering why it was that the British didn't land troops on the continent now that the Russians had the Nazis busy up to their necks in the east The British were very frank in saying "No" to this whole proposition. proposi-tion. In the first place, said the war office, there was still considerable consider-able doubt whether the Russians were able to put up a really successful suc-cessful fight against the Germans. In the second place, war office authorities went on, the best that England could do short of landing troops on the continent would be so to slash away at the Reich by air that numbers of German fighter planes would be kept busy on the west front, thus taking them away from the eastern theater of war. These air raids by the R.A.F. were increasing in scope daily, with the bombers taking advantage of each minute of darkness that was added as the nights grew longer, to stretch their raids further and further fur-ther into Germany. .. . Already, it was pointed out they were hitting at the suburbs of Berlin, Ber-lin, and the capital itself would come in for strong blitzing before be-fore long, the British promised. NAZIS: Blast FDR The main upshot of the attempted Nazi coup in Bolivia, and the statement state-ment by President Roosevelt that if necessary, the Bolivian government would nave the full aid of the United States in auellina the attempted coup d'etat, was that the Nazis turned their guns on the President. The war news went fivins off the front pages as the leading Berlin dailies paid their respects to the President in the most sarcastic and belittling terms. One said: "The President of the U. S.1 A. trying to bring Bolivia into the status of colonial dependence on the United States." Another wrote: "Mr. Roosevelt's message to congress con-gress and the press constitute noth ing but lies." Still another: "President Roosevelt is a main tool of Jewish world freemasonry." This paper published a picture of the President and his three sons holding a Masonic lodge session. This picture, according to the Nazi press, was found at Masonic head quarters in Oslo. Norway. The na per said it was taken November 7, 1935, and pictured the President as taking part in the initiation of his sons, James and Franklin Jr. According to Nszi tenets being a Freemason is almost a cardinal sin. FOURTEEN: Neiv Points Reminiscent of the "Fourteen Points" of the last war settlement Undersecretary of State Welles had issued the most definite statement so far promulgated intending to give America s post-war objectives. The statement by Welles came at the laying of a cornerstone for a new wing of the Norwegian legation in Washington. He prefaced his remarks re-marks with the assertion that ther could be no peace until Hitler had finally and surely been destroyed. He referred to the League of Na tions, and said he did not believe that the peoples of good will will not once more strive to realize the great ideal of an association of nations through which the freedom, the hap piness and the security of all na tions may be achieved. Welles particularly brought in the German people by saying that mil lions (naming the Germans) now aie asking what the future will hold for them when the war ends. He men tioned England, China.

DEFENSE 'INCIDENTS' Out of 26 maior "incidents of dam- me" in defense plants last month, military intelligence authorities have evidence that 14 were causea by sabotage. The other 12 were ac cidents. Of the 14 sabotage cases, four npre fires and 10 were mechanical damage. Two are attributed to Inmmunists: the others to Nazi agents. There is no indication that Communists and Nazis worked together. to-gether. Since the outbreak of the Kusso- German war, the Communist party line has somersaulted. The current dictum is, no interference with de fense output It is significant tfat since the Nazi attack on the Soviets there has been a sharp decline in strikes. However, intelligence agents re port that the party has made no change in its policy of propagandizing propagandiz-ing soldiers and sailors. This is being be-ing pushed as vigorously as before, although with little success. In fact party generals are so dissatisfied with results that they recently ordered or-dered labor unions dominated by Communists to help their campaign by offering their halls as soldier recreation rec-reation centers. Japanese Consulates. Another significant development In subversive influences relates to the Japanese. Since the expulsion of the Nazi and Italian consulates, intelligence officers have found that the Japanese Japa-nese consulates in Los Angeles and Seattle have become the chief clearing clear-ing houses for espionage on the West coast. Japanese residents are sending send-ing in a constant stream of reports on airplane production, ship movements move-ments and other military information. informa-tion. The recent arrest of two Japanese spies in Los Angeles caused a flurry in Japanese quarters, and a number num-ber of Japanese rushed to Washington, Wash-ington, apparently to place themselves them-selves under the protection of their embassy. Others hotfooted for Mexico, Mex-ico, which may mean they are planning plan-ning to shift spy headquarters to Mexico City. .. SECRET NEW AAA CZAR American Farm bureau and Na tional Grange moguls are smart pol iticians. Although their bill to cre ate an independent five-man board to rule the AAA has not yet seen the light of day on Capitol Hill, they are already greasing the wav by canny wooing of possible oppo nents. Latest to be "propositioned" is Rudolph ("Spike") Evans, ambitious ambi-tious head of the AAA. who might be a vigorous foe of their scheme to gain control of his own aeencv. rhe farm leaders have sent word to Evans that they will back him for chairman of their proposed board if ne will go along with them. An inner group of 11 decided on this move at a secret dow-wow dur ing the recent conference in Chi cago of the Farm bureau. Grange and National Co-op council on the aefense emergency. The master minds also accented Walter Randolph of Alabama as the Farm bureau's selection nn tho boards, pledged themselves to take whomever the Grange nicked, and agreed to allow this hand-picked trio to name the other two board mem bers. The plan is very Dat but the mva. tery is where Roosevelt and Secre tary Claude Wickard fit into the picture. Under the law the Presi dent appoints board members, and on agricultural selections he natur ally would consult Wickard. Annnr ently, the Grange and Farm bureau manipulators propose to do the nick tag and force Roosevelt and Wick ard to go along. Ne Chance. Actually, the five - man hnard scheme has no chance of getting anywnere this year. Not yet even introduced, it faces such a long battle when It does arv pear that months will elapse before it goes through the committee nroc ess. Further, there are indications that certain Farm bureau moguls privately don't want the legislation considered at all this session. According to Farm bureau insid ers, lLarl Smith. Illinois bi?-ciin and Francis Johnson. Iowa chief secretly want to make it a political issue in next year's congressional election. Militant New Deal fnos they are said to believe that a lnt of GOP campaign hay can be made in the rural districts by raising the cry of "give the farmer control of the AAA." How much control he would nave is shown by the fact that the bova already have made sure that they would ao tne controlling. ' .
