The United States legation took a hand today in Japanese inquiries concerning American mission properties in North China which have aroused apprehension concerning the safety of Peiping.

American missionaries in North China were informed by the legation that if any Japanese agents come asking details about mission properties, the missionaries were to send questioners to the legation, where the situation would be handled. The mysterious actions Of the Japanese agent have stirred both Chinese and foreign circles with the fear that North China is to be the scene nf new ventures of the Japanese war machine. MAKING MAPS The fears were heightened by emergency reports that the questioner was making a detailed inventory, with maps, of Chinese Government buildings and properties in Peiping, including the forbidden City. The Japanese agent, going by the name nf A'raki. represented himself as "a diplomatic agent attached to the Japanese army at, Tientsin." The legation indicated that no Japanese agent had been to see them.

Legation attaches said the Japanese Army had not informed them of Araki's presence or purposes, and that they knew nothing about him.

FORT SAM HOUSTON, March 10 Major William C. Ocker, famous "blind flying" expert of the United States Army Air, Service, was absolved today on charges of speaking derogatorily of a superior officer.

A court martial jury of nine officers deliberated only 15 minutes last night before unanimously finding Ocker not guilty of the charges preferred by Lieutenant-Colonel Henry B. Clagett, commandant of Kelly Field. "I feel as if my work for aviation has not been wasted." Ocker said when the trial was over. "Now I can go ahead with my efforts to make flying safer with further development of navigation instruments." Clagett strode from the courtroom, declining to comment. CHARGED COLLUSION Ocker.

oldest flier in the Army in point of service, was charged with accusing Clagett and Major C. C-Johnston, flight surgeon, of collusion relative to an examination preceding Ocker's grounding for poor vision. Johnston testified he considered the charges so serious that he felt it was his duty to report the incident to the commanding officer. His orderly, overhearing the conversation, transcribed Ocker's remarks. The trial a bitter feud.

Ocker told the he had been the victim of Clagetrs malice since th'ir paths first crossed at Boiling Fild ten years ago. Several times. Ocker testified, he applied for a transfer from Clag-ett's jurisdiction, but each time the workings of the War Department threw them together at another post. The trouble started, Ocker said, when Clagett became jealous because officers preferred hirn as pilot. HAMPERED IN WORK Ocker charged further that he had been seriously hampered in his development of aeronautical instruments by Clagett's attitude.

GAVE NO LOCATION Jn a message to the air ministry telling of their plans, Malraux, author and archaeologist, failed to give the exact geographical location of what he believes is the ancient capital. Malraux merely said they had found the "legendary city" on the north boundary of the great Arabian or Ruba-El-Khali desert, the most desolatedesert in the world. It was indicated that the city which the explorers said they saw and photographed from the air with "twenty towers or temples still standing" is about 1000 miles southeast of Jerusalem on the west side of Arabia. The two were heard from by telegram from Djibouti, French Somali land.

They have established a base there. EVEN CHANCE OF DEATH From this point they will face again an even chance of deatfi in flying 900 miles over the desert to reach the spot where they believed lies the city for which men have searched 2000 years. Apparently Captain Moliner and Malraux believe their grave risks are justified. Archeaologists and others long have believed that great wealth might, be found It the city ever were revealed. The age-old quest for the city has cost many lives.
