The stale department, confronted by a large movement of Japanese troops into North China, today reaffirmed its support of the nine power pact guaranteeing China's territorial integrity. Undersecretary of State Phillips said the diplomatic position of the United States is the same as that outlined in Secretary of State Hull's statement of December 5. 1935. He then said the United States "has a binding faith in the fundamental principles of its traditional policy." "This government," the statement said, "adliprcs to the provi sions of the treaties to which it is a parly and continues to bespeak respect by all nations for the provisions and treaties solemnly entered into for the purpose of facilitating and regulating to recipro cal and common advantage the contracts between and upon the country's signatory." Phillips' statement was interpreted by state department officials as being merely an affirmation of the moral position of the United States, but in no sense a diplomatic warning to Japan. According to authoritative sources, it was to convey to foreign nations the idea that the United States still believes in the sanctity of treaties, but was not intended as a. .threat.

This is something new," Zioncheck said while his apprehensive guests watched him mix hair tonic and the lamous Virgin Islands rum, "Oh, oh, oh, this delights me. Ves, it is something new." French fishermen who accompanied Zioncheck on the expedition were paid off generously in American money. Iney received ample gifts of good Virgin Islands ruin. But no hair tonic, it delighted them, they said, only as a beverage for M. le Deputy Zioncheck.

Two negroes killed a sheriff, wounded five other white men, held off a posse numbering up to 5,000 men in a six hour gun battle and died finally in a barrage of machine gun bullets in their blazing home early today. Two hours later, after the ruins had cooled enough to permit approach, members of the posse raked among the ashes and, recovered one of the bodies. It was torn and cut up and parts of it, including some of the bones, were carried off as souvenirs. The body of the second negro a woman was recovered several hours later. 11 was dragged from the smouldering ruins and left for the curious to stare at and the few remaining souvenir hunters to dismember. The dead were Sheriff William Young of Orange county and the negroes William Walles, 60, and his sister, Cora, 62. Wounded were Fayette Young, Sheriff Young's brother; Gordon Ray Mundy, garage owner of Orange; State Police Sergeants Wayne Chit and S. L. McWilliams and George Messong.

From the Headlines By Deacon Richmond "Dr. Sweet Says, 'Don'l Worry Over Children's Appetite' " During the last several years, parents have been filled with fears that the things that Johnnie ate wouldn't nayu ""okjj '1 fi've him proper weight: that he V -- wouldn't have it the muscle for sv 1 'US: tussle; for he ouldn't eat the ens, when he ocans, ana ne shied at the to-j matoes and filled ul up on mashed potatoes. Doctors said this was all wrong and Johnnie wouldn't live so long as the boys and girls who ate all the things that they'd dictate. So the parents spoiled John's meals with most harsh and drastic spiels on the things that he should eat. if he would in life compete with the boys who ate the greens, carrots, turnips and string beans. Now we hear, from Doctor Sweet, that the things the children eat can be left to their dis cretion, if we'll make the dinner session one of pleasant conversation, rather than a dissertation on the things that one must eat. whether they be greens or meal. .-V bf. POWER SETUP Washington, May 16. Senators from Washington and Oregon announced today completion of details of a bill providing authority for operation of the Bonneville power project on the Columbia river and enunciating a definite federal policy in regard to such waterpower developments. The bill scheduled for introduction on Mondav, contains a section setting forth the government's attitude toward such power developments, incidental to navigation, and provides specific protection for public agencies formed to use such power. "The section was framed after conferences at the White House." Sen. Homer Bone, D., Wash., said, "and after federal agencies had gone over and approved the de tails. It is much along the lines of the pioneering policy already in effect in the state of Washington. II provides that where power is in cidental to navigation the federal power commission will control the rate policy and nave tne power to act on revisions of rates. It puts the commission so far as possible in a position analagous to t hat of the average operator. It gives rather broad power to the commission to set up the proper rate schedules, taking all factors into considera tion. Bone said the bill was worked put after decision to abandon the McNary-Steiwer and the Bonc-Schwellenbach billi wnicl. were much alike. The new measure would combine them r.l ii.-;..ir. most of the liberal features of the Bonc-Schwellenbarh proposal.
