Vital lo Philippine* The groups lie sllnvnrt the main strategical pathways from Hawaii to tile Pacific, and their control Is iu|- mlttedly vital to the defense of (he Philippine Islands. They \verc wrest - ecl from Japan during Ihe recent world war by an incalcuable expenditure of American money and lives, Pacific experts point out, thai there are three different categories l qr former Japanese Islamls'Sn the Pacific: those of which the prewar Japanese sovereignly was unchallenged; those which were subject to special understandings during World War II; and those which Japan held under mandate. Since the situation of the former Japanese ma'ndatcd islands has moot, aspects, three possible courses could be considered by the United Stales: 1) A "do nothing" policy, which merely would continue the status quo until the political situation in the Pacific is more stable. 12) Annexation. (3) Eublrilsslon of the istnhds to the united toatloits trusteeship system. No final procedure In ally dIVec- 1 lloh would be undertaken except oh the authority of thy President hiihsoif, ahd he undoubtedly would consult Congressional leaders be=fore action, since the question of Pacific islands Is highly controvcr- siaLin Cohgress. Bit 4 Gave Mandate Contrary to -the general InVpl-es- 'siovi. the mandate of Pacific Islands north of the Equator to Japan was made by authority of the Allied and Associated powers through the Council of Four lUiilted Slates, United Klhgdolii, Fratice arid Italy), and not by the League of Nations, although Japan thereafter reported to the League of Nations Mandate Commission, The provisions of the Uniled Nations Charier pertinent lo the Jaj>- Pacific mandated Islands are Articles IV and 10. The first provides Hint the trusteeship shall apply, among other territories, lo those "now held under mandate" and the second asserts that the terms of trusteeship for each territory to be placed under trusteeship shall l)e agreed by "the slates directly concerned." In event of nay International agreement concerning tlie former insinduted Islands, the countries directly concerned — in the light of history—would be the Uivjrecl Stntcs. Great Britain, Franco, Italy and Japan. Ho'wevcr, Italy and Jnpiui excluded themselves by defeat.

Cites Kour Hcusuns Although outright annexation of the former .Japniiesc-mundale Is- Innds by the United States would invite ardent debate both In nnd out of this country, proponents of unilateral trusteeship feel that they could make a strong case based on: First, the fact that .jthe positive retention of them is vitally necessary to the security of the Philippines. Hawaii, nlul the mniiiland of America. Second, that their sthnll population does not necessarily require the imposition of an international Iruslceship system based on broad social and economic arrftngeniehts.
