A TREATY-BREAKER U. S. in Thinly-Veiled Threat to Retaliate by Trade Penalty By I'HESTON GKOVER WASHlNGTON-Thc State Department is keeping a weather eye out on Europe but the real trouble spot for this country just now is Japan. Jt will be the headline-maker around the first of the year. It would be hard to find two nations so actively engaged in ruffling each other's feelings while at peace as the United Stales and Japan. Naturally, both sides claim to be rifiht. Each claims the other is pursuing a course which fails to take into consideration the realities of the situation. Pro and Con Japan insists that the United Slates, along with all other non-Oriental nations-, /ails to "understand" that there is a "i1ow order" in the Orient. The assertion that others do not "understand" the peculiar problems of the Orient is a favorite one of the Japanese. On the contrary, the United States declares it very well understands the situation. Japan, says the United States, deliberately set out to make over China in its own image, all in violation of international law and in violation of treaties Japan had signed with other countries. » Debate Goes On The Japanese always insists that the United States is being vised by the British as a catspaw to protect British intcrosls in the Orient. The United States says its interest is governed by a large concept—equality of opportunity once agreed to by a group of nations cannot be changed simply by one nation. "Failure to observe that principle," ,said Ambassador Grew in a comprc^ hcnsive statement to the Japanese of the U. S. position, "breeds international friction and ill-will, with consequences injurious to all countries, including in particular those countries which fail to observe it." ', Japan apparently forgot to read closely enough the part of that sentence after the last comma. Also it evidently forgot to read the next part of the same paragraph, in which Grew said: "Observance of that principle (of equal opportunity) promotes the opening of trade channels thereby making available the markets, the raw materials and the manufactured pro-ducts of the community of nations on a mutually and reciprocally beneficial basis." Reprisals Grow That should have told Japan that such things as embargoes of raw materials were being discussed in the United Slates. But Japan didn't take the hint. The annoying blockade of the British area in Tientsin—includ- ing the public shippings and searching—was extended in part to Americans. Reprisal came fairly fust. Senator PiUinan, chairman of the foreign relations committee, who frequently acts under Stale Department guidance, introduced a resolution calling for an embargo against Japan. Hot on its- heels came the U. S. denunciation of the 28-year-old Iradc treaty with Japan. If the United Stales hud wanted simply to exert pressure on Japan, it could have clone so forfecully and effectively while negotiating a new trca- .l.v. But just now it is popular fo lash Ihe Japanese, so they got it in the teeth. The Japanese have replied in kind. .Within Ihe past few days a detailed report was filed with Ihe State Department of the increasing restrictions imposed by Japanese on Yankee operations in China.

S Hurt in Dodge Strikers'Rioting CIO Tieup Continues, With 58,000 Chrysler Men Out of Work DETROIT, Mich. —UP)— A barrage of bricks and stones injured eight persons and resulted in 22 arrests Friday but failed to prevent 57 workers from passing a ClO-Unitcd Automobile Workers picket iino and entering the closed Dodge main plant of Chrysler Corporation. The first mass violence of the 50-day-old contract dispute between the UAW-CIO and the corporation came a few hours before negotiations for settlement were adjourned for the week-end with "no progress' reported. Arthur E. Raah, chairman of the stale Labor Mediation Board, said lhat a recess until Monday was decided on "in the hope the parties can produce some new idca.s Negotiations have dcacliicked on the issues of union wage demands and a demand by the corporation for assurance lhat the request of a CIO forcmn's union for a bargaining conference will not be* renewed.

Exporting of Oil to Europe Is Blocked by British Fleet MEXICO CITY, Mexico —(/R— Officials of Pctroleos Mexicanos, gov- ernmcnt.controllcd oil administration, Friday night confirmed that negotiations virtually had been completed with a United States concern to dispose of Mexico's entire exportable oil production, about 88,000 barrels-daily. The name of the American agency, the price fixed, Icrm of Uic contract and other details of the reported agreement were closely guarded. It could not be determined whether the American company had contracted actually to buy all Mexico's oil exports, or would merely serve as a sales agent. The new contract would supersede Mexico's commitments to Germany. Italy and South American countries, including Brazil and Argentina. These contracts have, infact, been almost inoperative since outbreak of the European war. The strain placed on Mexican economy by the virtual disappearance of the nation's foreign oil markets was said to have enhanced attractiveness of the American deal. Mexico's foreign outlets have been virtually closed by the British blockade of Germany failure of Italy to provide tankers to ship the oil contracted fro under her rayon-oil agreement wilh Mexico, and Mexico's, lack of tankers with which to transport oil to South America. Although Mexico's petroleum administration announced in October that new contracts had been let which would take care of all exportable oil into 1940, it is known thai Mexico's oil exports have declined nearly 58 percent over July when large shipments were going lo Germany and Italy. Total July exports were 2,440,684 barrels. The reported American contract woulld not imperil Mexico's million dollar crcdil with Germany, representing oil shipments for which Germany has not paid. It was said the unpaid balance was deposited in a German bank 1o the account of the Mexican government. U. S.

Convict Paroled, Paint Job No Good Was the Only Man Who Knew How to 'Bake" License Plates FRANKFORT, Ky. — (IP)— When a convict behaves himself he can't be kept in prison indefinitely—even if he is an expert in the process of "baking" the paint on the state's automobile licens plates. That, in effect, was the explanation o£ Frank Tanner, assistant state purchasing agent, for the numbers on many 1939 tags fad ing and becoming almost indistinguishable. Answering numerous complaints, including one from Louisville police that the faded tags hampered law enforcement, Tanner xplaind. A life termer in the stale prison, whrc the plates are made, "baked" the paint on the plates for nearly 12 years. Last year he was released on parole. His successor didn't bake the plates enough. "We saw lo it Ihe 1940 plates were well baked," Tanner said. 'They arc perfect." Carcfiily, There! ROANOKE, Va.—l/l'j—While Uie defendant, charged with drawing a pistol on another, was being tried, the complainant listened to lawyers argue until he got Ihe hang of things.
