THUMUAY, T3W. H, Warning to Russia Means Japan's Defense Is Ready (Japan warned Russia Ms week to r 'keep its aircraft away from Japan or'U. S, warplanes would shoot them down. Thus' the cycle has turned full wheel. Japan, defeated in 1945 by the U.. S, — \vith Russia in only for the kill — now brandishes U. S. armed might against its old Soviet antagonist. Robert Eunson. chief of the Associated Press bureau In Tokyo, discussed the problems involved with 0-j?. S. State Department and mlli- V.f>ry men in Japan. This Is his size-up, based on those talks, of the newest twist In the cold war.) By ROBERT EUNSON TOKYO «5—Japan and the United States have warned Soviet Russia that ftiey have embarked on a new, get-lough policy In the Far East and they are ready to back H up with bullets. : •The warning yesterday to a "foreign power" left no doubt but that Japan was talking nboiit Russia, whose Kurile Island-based planes are only six miles from Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost isle. • At least one Soviet plane already has been escorted from Japan. So far no bullets have been fired. The warning means that planes and anti-aircraft guns are prepared to handle the next violation with force if necessary. 'There ;is no particular signtfi- CEince in the timing of the warning. There hns been no marked increase in the number of violation's of the Japanese skies. But continuing violations have caused concern. .; Shooting down a Russian MIG over Hokkaido would have caused « "pt more flap internationally bee the warriing-was issued'than rould cause now that the Soviets have been told Japan and the U. S. mean business. Both nations concurred in the warning and both the U. S.

Trainmen have been I'ssued automatic rifles, and cabs of .the diesel ipotors have been armored, as above, leaving only peep-hole space for sighting along the right of way. bassador Robert Murphy and Gen. Mark Clark came through swiftly with statements backing up the warning. .•',.•. Two Interesting questions remain to be answered, 1. Why are Soviet planes flying over Japan? , • 2. What happens to a Soviet plane and Its pilot if one is shot down or forced to land inside Japanese territory? The 20 to 40 Soviet planes reported over Japan since June could have been reconnaissance planes or they could have been thrill-seeking Jet jockeys of the Russian variety. . Most of them, however, are believed (o be reconnaissance planes, taking photographs of., security force installations. There are two purposes for reconnaissances' (1) to find out If the other side Is getting ready to hit you, and, (2) to find out what his defenses are before you hit him. The first is the most logical reason In. this Instance, because Hokkaido Is covered with four feet of snow In !t» velnerable places and it- is doubtful if the Soviets would attack now. ' . One theory of their violations Is- that Russian planes fly O ut from the Kuriles to Japan and then back to test their own radar and see If it is working properly. Although (here-Is a . grea t deal of discussion going on right now as to what would happen fl a Soviet plane was shot or forced down, no one feels that there would b« any The first persons on the scene would be the Japanese rural police They would Impound the plane and the pilot, or the body. Such an instance would-'provide quite a prize to U. S. Intelligence. It seems certain that the Japanese would have no trouble in getting together with U. S. officials on an Inspection of the plane or (he wreckage. • .'

In fact the retiring attorney general, James p. McGranery, In an Interesting burst of energy, has set the whole Justice Department abln/.e with a big.and brand new batch of investigations and local »rctlohs.. . For a man in his job only about eight months, McGranery may have established a record for gel- ting^ things started. But, since he won't be around after next Tuesday's inauguration, it will be Brownell's job to finish whafMcGranery began. At least McOranery can always say. If only to himself,-"Well, I guess t showed them." His activity had been contrary to the predictions of some congressional critics of the Truman administration. They expected, out loud, that Mc- Granery would Just rock along till off )ilte a man who expected the Democrats to win Ihe election When they lost he kept right on going, as if they had won.
