WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 193? JIPJK5E HOLE IN SOOTH CHINA FIST: BIATTTEVILLE. (ARK.)' COURIER NRWS Poland's Pride—Tier Cavalry hiiy Refuses To Follow Slern Policy Used fn Norlh China CANTON, Sept. B is no ami-British move in South China. It Is not because Hie southern Chinese lack null-British feelings; It Is because the Japawe Army in North China nnds HIP movement more difficult, to control than Che forces in South Chlin That Is the mtlilnry s|iokcsmtm'<i explanation why no counlerimt exists here of the North Chlmi campaign. Army and nnvy authorities woulJ not venture to forecast the lime when the "ingrained" anil-British sentiments might overwhelm '.he restraining hand of the Japanese, as has happened in Norlh China. They said they are merely watching to see what results Wang Cbing-wci obtains In his elVorls lo win over Ihc southwestern leaders. Actually, foreign observers hero believe, an anil-British move is simply not in Ihe Japanese policy for South China, which so far appears to be based on ".siltinft tight" and blocking supplies io the Chiang Kai-shek government. Iron Hand lirsistrtl It Is known definitely In well- informed circles here that ihe Japanese North China command has brought pressure to bear on Ihe Soulh China command for n» anti-BrilMi move.' but the latter refused to comply. The only action apparently aimed at foreigners was taken for a few dnys toward the end of July, when Japanese sentries deliberately protracted I heir searehliigs of Chinese entering and leaving ihe foreign concession. Ostensibly they were watching for Chinese trying to hoard their Chinese national dollars by converting them into Honi? Kontr currency deposits in the foreign banks, foreign residents grumbled ami went hungry while their servants .waited to bring foodstuffs through the sentries. This policy came to an abrupt end, it is learned, through representations by diplomatic officials. And since that time, as before, relation between foreigners and Japanese have been all that could bo asked under the circumstances. Foreigners Treated Same Britons coming to Canton have no more,, trouble passing passport Inspection an'd searching than do other nationalities i and ..Jherc'atc no. indications of discriminatory treatment of supplies destined for British residents. An incident which seemed at first lo presage an--anti-foreign move occurred when some American sailors; were passing a geisha house. r Japanese officers saw the sailors start to enter the house and arrested them. The men were released at the instance of diplomatic officials. Relations between Japanese and foreigners here are cordial enough to permit a British resident recently to suggest n Baseball game. One team was made up chiefly of officers from the U. S. gunboat Mindanao and the other from Japanese consular staff members. Local Guard Company May Be Expanded Soon The CO members of Company M, Mississippi County's" National Guard unit, will drill tonight in the old style tor the last forma ticn before taking up the new style drill ordered by the United Stales army for all nnny units, cf fectiyc Sept. -l. Because the unit-will soon be under the new table of organization, it will be operated as a heavy weapon unit instead of n machine gun corp and there is a probability that the 30 cavalry machine guns will be increased by 50 more and by 8] millimeter mortars. There Is also a probability of an increase in the personnel of the ccmpany, according to Capt. Wendell M. Phillips who said that the high technical training which would be acquired in this type work should attract high type young men interested in this vocation. Prospective members should have down Polish cavalry—ral across the uncertain terrain of msleni Europe, tiic ft vital war-time role impossible 'Continued from Page 1) Is nof expected to compare with the amount to be raised Ihls season members of the committee said The National Citton Council, organized in Dallas.
